About Marcelle

Marcelle has been serving the Motueka community in the property market successfully selling real estate for 20 plus years. Her happy clients attest to her outstanding success.

With a firm belief that everyone should get a fair deal, she works on the premise that everyone has had to work as hard as she has throughout her life. She believes that every dollar counts as she goes the ‘extra mile’ for her clientele. Her straight talking and honest approach is valued by all.

Marcelle chose to join Bayley’s Real Estate over 17 years ago as she felt she was able to maximise her clients’ assets through the agency’s extensive marketing outreach and overseas connections. She can see a direct connection with the need of purchasers to form a bond with someone that can buy or sell their property for them plus be able to manage their property should they wish to use it as a rental investment.

Marcelle is a straight talker and has a very keen interest in helping her clients. With over 20 years’ experience in sales, huge repeat business speaks for itself. She knows that buying and selling your home could possibly be one of the largest financial transactions that you may ever make. Client testimonials speak volumes about the way Marcelle chooses to do business, citing her trustworthiness and down-to-earth manner as key attributes that set her above the rest.

We chose Marcelle Lupton to market our property and would have no hesitation in recommending her to potential sellers. She took a personal interest in our home and development well before our decision to sell, offering excellent advice and planning to the project whilst giving up hours of her own time. Against the line-up of many appraisals and interviews, Marcelle and the Bayley’s Group Management excelled and won the contract with a realist positive attitude, no nonsense approach and the willingness to meet our expectations. At the time of appraisal, Marcelle was competing against four other local companies for our house. Marcelle was able to see and appreciate the full potential and emotional value of our property and therefore appraised our home over 25% above the other companies and she achieved it!!! To top it all off, she even gave us a discount off the fees. We were impressed with the final result of our investment sale, which spoke in itself that the advice paid off. Marcelle’s passion to market, ability to strike an amazing deal and close the sale on our home was significant and noteworthy. We would have to say that Marcelle EXCELLED in every area and her grasp of real estate was second to none.

We meet Marcelle while looking at properties and found her and Corey so easy to deal with. They were extremely approachable and professional. This was so important for me/us to feel comfortable with the people/person selling our home. Well done Marcelle and Corey.

I recently moved from the Bay of Plenty to Motueka, with the intention of looking to buy a property there. Marcelle kept me well informed about listed properties and had gone to a lot of trouble to see that I had many photos and updated information prior to my arrival. She made herself solely available for the day and a half that I had to find the right property. We visited a range of homes and she organized a master builder to inspect the property of my choice whilst negotiating a somewhat difficult deal. She was always looking after my best interests, even with the very limited time frame in which to do this. Marcelle was very patient and focused, and I quickly developed a sense of trust in her capabilities to ensure I was getting the best possible deal. She ensured that I was satisfied and that all aspects had been covered thoroughly, so I could leave the area with peace of mind. Marcelle was committed to helping me feel secure and delighted with the purchase of my new home and I am very grateful for the time and energy she willingly gave me.

As an owner of multiple properties, I have had experience with several large Motueka real estate companies. Some of these experiences have been positive and some not so good. Certainly, I base part of this statement on outcomes, but I also base it on professional manor and communication. I make my expectations clear to all but only one person has met these. At the start of 2014 I listed a Motueka property with another company, they gave me a target sale price then one month into the process suggested I should drop it and take $20,000 under this figure. This seemed like an interesting proposition as there were very few properties at this entry level price in the market. I shifted companies and asked Marcelle for help. From day one the communication was outstanding, regular phone calls, email and text. As a seller I expressed for me there was no such thing as “too much information”. I felt informed every step of the way, and better yet, Marcelle sold my house within two days of the first showing. I do not give my trust lightly, but Marcelle has not only earned this, she has exceeded my expectations as a salesperson. I will also say that Marcelle is a compassionate, caring person that really knows how to listen and respond to my needs as a seller and individual. I work in the field of recruitment and could see Marcelle being excellent in many different roles. I am more than happy to answer any questions people might have around my experience with her.

Over the last 8 years we have purchased and sold over 4 properties with Marcelle. We are extremely satisfied with her results of each transaction. Marcelle worked tirelessly and achieved excellent results for us. We were very impressed and would have no doubt in recommending Marcelle for your next property sale, rental or purchase agreement.

Dear Marcelle, just a quick note to thank you for facilitating the sale of our house. From the beginning you demonstrated enthusiasm and a complete knowledge of the local market. Even though we listed our house at the beginning of the Christmas holiday period, the house was still sold within 6 weeks to the second, offer we received. Your professionalism and experience were obvious from the beginning, but the single most impressive aspect was the team work. We wish you and all your colleagues the very best for the year ahead. When we return to Motueka to retire in this wonderful location, Marcelle will be our first port of call, to help with purchasing this time. Once again Marcelle, thank you so much for your help, we think you did a great job in such a short period of time. Rick & Lynne, Motueka

We would like to recommend Marcelle to anyone who appreciates a real salesperson with both vision and passion. Her ability to analyse the potential buyers’ needs meant the best possible benefits of the property could be brought to display. Passionately engaging with buyers and sellers alike, gave her access to the real needs of both. Thank you, Marcelle. Your experience, knowledge and professional approach made the whole process straight forward and incredibly satisfying. We are more than happy to recommend you to everyone wanting to buy or sell.

I have had very good results with Marcelle marketing a property in the past and this prompted me to use the company again. Marcelle certainly upheld Bayley’s reputation in every way possible. I was amazed at the lengths of personal sacrifice she was able to make as my agent. She has now proven to me her trustworthiness through her sheer determination and sincerity to work hand in hand with her clients on a personal level with their needs in mind rather than just for the sale of the property. Marcelle has demonstrated a great deal of patience, professionalism and incredible dedication in marketing my property. I would certainly recommend Marcelle to everyone I know, wishing to sell their home, as she is truly dedicated to getting the best possible price.
