An elite performer in the world of real estate, Kym Aikin now brings this expertise to Waiheke, elevating the process of buying and selling to a new level for Bayleys’ island clients. Over her career Kym has won marketing awards and, in the office she worked at previously, ranked in the top 3% of agents for over 10 years.
From the moment people first meet Kym it’s clear she loves what she does and is extremely passionate about people and property. Kym boasts a long career in real estate and previously carved out a successful business at the top end of the greater Ponsonby market in Auckland, dealing in some of the suburbs most elite properties. She has established her highly respected reputation on her authenticity, work ethic and commitment to her clients. Her strong customer following includes much repeat and referral business.
An innate passion for interior design was what initially drew Kym to real estate. Having come from a creative background in textiles, fashion and sales, and having been a high performer within the industry, real estate was a natural transition and the right fit to utilise her many skills. Today this means Kym understands how to position each property in the market in a way that expresses its uniqueness in order to make it stand out from the crowd. With an impeccable eye for detail, Kym offers a hands-on highly personalised approach, providing vendors with pre-market styling advice in order to maximise their home’s value. On the flipside, she is also able to help buyers visualise the home’s potential to make it ‘theirs’. As part of her service, Kym can recommend a network of efficient, effective, professional and trade contacts to ensure each client’s property looks its absolute best. Every aspect of the marketing campaign is likewise carefully crafted to make the process of selling as smooth and stress-free as possible.
In her spare time Kym is a lover of the arts and enjoys yoga, meditation, going to the gym and, in the colder months, skiing. An important part of her values is giving back to the community and she is proud to be a collector for the Cancer Society and supporter of Woman’s Refuge, SPCA and Auckland City Mission.
Kym knows that Waiheke is both a special place to live and also a place to come and relax. After owning a holiday home on the island for many years she has recently embarked on an exciting new lifestyle change and moved to Waiheke.
Working with renowned agent Tricia Lafferty, together Kym and Tricia make an unbeatable team offering an attitude of excellence, creative flair and unrivalled customer service.
