Specialist in the Whakatane District, Eastern Bay of Plenty.

Experience, expertise, energy and honour go a fair way to summing up this realtor.

Selecting your real estate agent is crucial to your sales success. From the beginning to the end, that agent must demonstrate the expertise, negotiating ability, marketing and communication skills needed to sell your property. With Rhys you can tick all those boxes.

Add to that package the fact he's adept at ensuring his clients receive the best price from the current market - maximising a sale price isn't something everyone can lay claim to.

As he puts it... "As your realtor my prime responsibility is to market your property to attract and identify the buyer or buyers who see the greatest value, then make absolutely sure they compete to pay for it."

Before becoming a realtor in 2003, Rhys spent several years in Human Resource Management. He's found the skills gained in that profession invaluable when working together with clients.

It's not surprising therefore that Rhys can lay claim to many happy clients. Just check out his substantial database, many of whom come back as repeat clients.

Over the years this forward-thinking realtor has also identified and implemented the latest, leading edge marketing and sales strategies.

Rhys joined Bayleys Real Estate as he believes in its client-focused strategies and philosophies.

It's not just about selling your home!

And it’s more than just marketing!

It's the total package that counts!

His drive as a realtor is fuelled by an eagerness to achieve what's best for his clients and their property. It's as simple as that and as successful as that - a winning approach.




Mikaela and Rhys were great to work with on the recent sale of our lifestyle property.  At every step we found them professional, punctual and excellent communicators.  Everything happened when they said it would and they worked very hard for us to achieve a successful sale.  We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone considering listing their property for sale.

Working with both Mikaela and Rhys from Bayleys Whakatane was most certainly a pleasure.

An education to be sure for both Peter and myself they made it informative and easy, as well as helping us to understand different sale processes and how they worked.

Stephen Shale provided videos to us at pivotal times as we moved through the process of showing our home and going to auction.  These videos are invaluable and gave us insight into how the process works for you as well as allowing you to be at ease and to trust a tried and proven process that has been successful for others. 

While Rhys provided hints at simple things to do while showing our home Mikaela's work helped keep us on track with the lawyer and council.

We were always left informed after open homes, it was not a mystery.  The team were never too busy to speak with us and to answer our questions.

On auction day the team that had been working with us shined as they worked for us to get the best possible result. We have had houses sold before, I would work with Bayleys again in future.

True professionals in every sense of the word.

Earlier this year a farming neighbour whom I leased out 4 hectares of land to, told me he was selling his 96 hectares of dairy land and tendering it through Bayleys and did I want to sell my separate titled land. I agreed and went into Bayleys Whakatane and met Rhys and his enthusiastic team.

Rhys advertised my land in local papers and on websites, he listened and cared and went seven times (60km return) with clients to view the property. Each week he kept me up to date with the latest viewings.

I never once had any hassles and feel Rhys had gone the extra mile for me. It was such a pleasure to deal with Rhys and the team.

The best advert is a satisfied customer and that certainly is what I am. I keep telling my friends, if you're selling Rhys is the way to go!

Happy customer.

We were very impressed we the professional service we received from Rhys and his support team. He gave us a good overview of the different selling options available and was happy to support our preferred option.  We received regular feedback throughout the sale process and he aimed to make sure viewing times were arranged to cause minimal disruption.  The whole sale process was completed very professionally and efficiently. We would be more than happy to contract Rhys again in future. 

Kind regards

Paul and Shelley Thompson


To Whom it may concern, 

I contracted Rhys to sell my dairy farm in 2014 and it had its difficulties but Rhys handled it all with utmost professionalism and presented the farm with the best possible saleable points. 

I was very pleased and satisfied with the entire process and felt Rhys did his very best for me. 

In the future I would not hesitate to engage Rhys to sell any property I may own in the future.

We do have to agree with Rhys' statement “As your realtor my prime responsibility is to market your property to attract and identify the buyer or buyers who see the greatest value, then make absolutely sure they compete to pay for it.” He certainly did that and we were also impressed how he handled some awkward viewers and turned them into buyers! Thank you guys.

To Whom It May Concern

Recently, we have had the good pleasure to engage Rhys Mischefski and Larissa Reid of Bayleys Real Estate to sell a range of properties for us.

They have worked and continue to work very hard, conscientiously and innovatively to achieve a pleasing level of sales in a relatively slow or quiet market.

Having engaged the services of a number of real estate agents over the years, we have never had any who exhibited the same attitude of loyalty to their clients as do Rhys and Larissa in trying to achieve the best for them. Rhys and Larissa have also had the weight of the nationwide Bayleys network behind them which is a real advantage when trying to market properties nationwide.

They have recently been joined by Mikaela Pinkerton and it is a pleasure to work with them all. We look forward to an ongoing successful relationship with them.

Over the last 12 months we have worked with Rhys and Larissa in regards to the purchase and sale of three properties. 

Everything with these deals went smoothly and this doesn’t happen by chance. 

They worked through the process with each of these quickly and efficiently and consequently each deal went without a hitch. 

We are looking forward to working with them again hopefully in the not too distant future.
