The work formula for real estate salespeople is often based on volume - list a bunch of properties, turn them over and repeat. But for Jude, the old adage, ‘less is more’ could never be truer. Jude is a professional first and foremost and her personal catch-cry will always be, ‘have less… do more… be more’. This successful approach has vendors speaking of her loyal and trusted work ethic, with dynamic results following. Jude takes pride in her boutique promise – she would not take on extra listings if it jeopardised her quality of service. Going the extra mile will always be part of the plan!
Despite being a seasoned performer with a robust list of sales and positive client testimonials, Jude is not one to look back. For her, the true barometer of success is hand-on-heart knowing she has gleaned a top result for every vendor.
To ensure no buyer is left unturned, Jude has a reputation for being a team player, actively collaborating with colleagues for the greater good. She also embraces the Bayleys marketing reach and backs it with sound knowledge of the Whangarei Heads property market. She has a refreshingly direct manner and says; “working with people on the sale of their home is a privilege I do not take lightly, I respect the enormity of all decisions and I’m committed to gaining a maximum return for my vendors. I do this with honest feedback, energy and integrity.”
Whilst the professional hat is firmly on, Jude also exudes a warm personality and she’s a pushover for a great cause! Regularly opening her heart and her generosity to the local community is important to her. The Pines Golf Club appreciates her sponsorship, as does Parua Bay Primary School. A true promoter of life in Whangarei Heads, Jude will also jump at the chance to spend a day on the water, or to swing a golf club at the Pines Club. Be sure to quiz her on her latest handicap!
If you are ready to sell your property and would like to work with a partner who remains a step ahead of the competition, give Jude a call today.
Because we liked Jude’s enthusiasm and approach we decided to entrust the sale of our Parua Bay property to her and were so glad we did. She and Kirsty work as a seamless team and certainly go above and beyond for their clients. Their strengths are their depth of knowledge particularly of the Whangarei Heads property market and their work ethic. When the word went out only a week or two into our planned campaign that we needed a quick sale in order to settle on a new home they moved into another gear. We think the pace of their renewed vigour to meet the deadline will go into the real estate annals for all time. Jude and Kirsty used their networking skills to do almost the impossible and effect the sale of our large, character home and property in less than three weeks. Throughout the process, their professionalism was evident and we were kept informed every step of the way. We have been thrilled with the result.

Jude Copland has recently acted (successfully) for us as Real Estate Agent in the sale of our Property at Reotahi, Whangarei Heads. We have been most impressed with her commitment and efficiency. Her marketing program has been imaginative and has lead to the desired conclusion for all parties. Her tasks have included dealing directly with our resident tenants for open homes and viewings. We have no hesitation in recommending her to any future Vendors or Purchasers.
Leona & Michael Gavin
Many thanks for your great work in selling our house. We certainly did not expect an agent to go to the trouble that you have done. This is really appreciated and if we can repay you in any way, we would be delighted to do so.

I would like to place on record my appreciation for the manner in which Bayleys have handled our house sale at 78 Kiteone Road and the speed in which a satisfactory sale has been reached. This has been accomplished in a sales climate where numerous properties are on the market in the area, many of which on the market for long periods of time without selling. Jude Copland has handled all stages of the sale transaction in a most professional manner. It has been a most pleasing experience working with Jude and I believe it was her experience, professionalism and determination that has guided the sale to its speedy conclusion. Thank you once again.
Jude's communication was great and she kept me up to date with all developments in the purchasing process. She also talked me through the stages of purchasing prior to putting in an offer which I appreciated.
We wanted to share with you how amazing our experience was with Jude Copland while searching for homes. As new immigrants, we were daunted by the differences in real estate practice between the U.S. and N.Z. After checking out one of Jude's listings, she contacted us and kindly offered to assist us in our house search; she was the ONLY real estate agent out of the many homes that we viewed that did any type of follow up, let alone take us on with the possibility she might not be guaranteed a commission. Jude's knowledge of the Northland was invaluable in our search. She has a wealth of knowledge when it comes to the communities, regulations, and the general ins and outs of areas. Jude has proven to be an excellent resource when needing other services regarding home buying as well. We can't express how at ease we were, knowing that she had such an intimate knowledge of the Whangarei area. Ever patient, Jude was nothing but positive and supportive while we continued to look at home after home in search of the perfect home for us. Jude's mantra was, "When you find the right home, everything will fall into place and it will feel effortless." She was absolutely right. We tried to force ourselves to buy a home that, based on the inspections, wasn't right for us. Almost immediately thereafter, we were led to another great home in the same community and all our needs were addressed, even with a neighbour to let us graze our horses, therefore we aren't 100% responsible for maintaining a large acreage; definitely "the right thing" for these city slickers. We would highly recommend Jude's services to anyone searching for a home. We believe she has the skills and knowledge to serve a special niche: immigrants. If all NZ realtors functioned with the same prototype Jude functions with. we may have bought much earlier and our paths never crossed with Jude. On the other hand, had we not met Jude, we would likely have become frustrated with the process and taken a lengthy break rather than typing to you from our beautiful new home. Jude's effervescent personality, endless energy, creative problem solving, resourcefulness, excellent organizational skills and follow-through allowed us to never have a doubt that we were absolutely in the right hands. We so appreciate Jude's ability to think "out of the box" and provide our unique realty services that addressed home hunting in a way we understood. Best of luck to Jude in what is sure to be a very successful future at Bayleys!

We found Jude to be very professional & pleasant to deal with. She explained very clearly & in plain English the procedure & requirements we had to do. Also she kept us informed & up to date of everything concerning the sale of our house. From start to finish of our sale, we found Jude to be very easy to deal with & felt she was genuine, enthusiastic, self - driven & would have no hesitation in recommending Jude to anyone who needs a real estate agent. We thank Jude for all she has done for us & wish her well for the future

As you will know, our property has been sold, at a price we are happy with, and settlement conditions we had hoped for. Jude Copland handled the whole process with enthusiasm, empathy and accuracy. We enjoyed Jude's personality at all times and feel that she played a significant role in the success of what could have been a very stressful procedure. We extend our thanks to Jude and the company.

Dear Jude, I was still stressed from having just sold our previous house, changing countries again, combined with a major lifestyle change, such a short time before putting our current NZ house up for sale. The thought of all that selling razzmatazz again so soon was freaking me out. Our best decision was choosing Jude at Bayleys. It wasn't all luck. We did our homework, knowing that a really good Agent can make all the difference. It did! Whilst I won't say selling was fun, it was the next best thing! Jude smoothed the way with a great marketing program, backed up by immediate and efficient reporting methods. Her knowledge of the current market was invaluable, as were her list of various contacts. It was so easy to work with Jude. Her suggestions were sound and we adopted them all. We cannot recommend Jude highly enough. She said she would help us through the process and she did. For that, we sincerely thank her.
We have known Jude for many years and she did an amazing job for us. Jude always goes above and beyond, approaches everything with an amazing amount of energy and enthusiasm, always professional and most of all has great customer service always does what she says she is going to do! Pretty simple, but often not done.

As trustees for a family trust we enlisted Jude Copland’s services to sell a Northland property. We found her easy to deal with, she kept her word about what she could/ would do and up to our auction date she tried very hard to create interest. She provided schedules of sales in the Whangarei area and helped us in our setting of the reserve price. After the auction she convinced us to run a sale process again and she was almost relentless in conducting that, and was instrumental in providing a buyer who came up with the eventual sale price. She was very ethical when we came to the multiple offer presentation. We would use her services again unhesitantly and are convinced that she achieved the best sale outcome.

"The best decision we made when selling our property was to engage the services of Jude and Kirsty of Bayleys Whangarei, who's knowledge of the local market proved to be invaluable.
Their friendly and professional manner made the whole process a lot easier, and we appreciate the great efforts they made.
Highly recommended to both vendors and buyers."

Recently we had the pleasure of having Jude and Kirsty act as agents for the sale of our house in Parua Bay. We found them to be very enthusiastic and attentive during the process. They were both very knowledgeable about the local market and willingly gave good advice on the best practice to achieve a sale. Their professional and persistent efforts helped ensure the sale went ahead in a very timely manner. A big thanks to both of them for their assistance.”
