Ray and Linda Lees spent their formative years in Tauranga in the 60s and 70s. They returned to their home town with their three children in 1994 where Ray commenced his real estate career. He has enjoyed more than two decades with Realty Services with Linda joining Ray in the business in 2000, firstly as part time support which soon became a full-time job as their client base grew.
Ray and Linda have enjoyed success in every market condition and over a wide range of residential property types and values to become a universally trusted real estate partnership. They appreciate a high percentage of repeat business and personal recommendations. As they have assisted their clients up the property “ladder” the value of their transactions has risen. Their reputation in managing top-end value sales has been earned by a solid work ethic, drawing on a bank of over 20 years’ experience, maintaining a hands-on friendly approach and placing an emphasis on the best exposure to get a top result.
“It was noticeable that in a difficult market we were the only property with people at our auction which I put down to Ray’s effort. Thank you very much. A great result.” - Allan
THE RIGHT BUYER

“We set out to target the right buyers for our clients’ property, ensuring that they are comfortable it has been exposed locally, regionally and nationally to attract those buyers,” says Ray. “Because the ideal buyer sees the most value in a property, once we have achieved this we have set the platform to negotiate the best result for our vendors.”
Bayleys’ management and Ray and Linda’s clients will attest to the negotiating expertise of this husband and wife team.
“You proved yourself Ray and I would recommend you to all.” – Kathy
