About Richard

He might be known to indulge in an early morning surf, but there’s nothing relaxed about Richard Wright’s pursuit of results for his clients.

Equal parts logic and likeability, with an eye for detail and a practicality which simply can’t be taught, real estate runs in his blood. Richard comes equipped with dual qualifications in landscape and graphic design, giving clients the confidence that they receive qualified advice from a professional who understands every facet of the property process.

Cutting his teeth on the international business scene, Richard grew up in the Waikato before moving to Auckland where he honed his knowledge of financial markets and sales techniques with over 19 years sales, marketing and management experience both within New Zealand and abroad.

Evident from his quick progression through the ranks, Richard’s ability to identify with his clients ensures he is consistently ahead of the game and as a property owner and investor himself he delivers customer service which is compassionate and personalised.

Armed with a track record of achievement and a strategic approach, Richard understands the power of smart marketing and he combines this with his local knowledge and strong negotiation skills to secure only the best results for his clients.

Priding himself on a willingness to take the hassle out of the sale process, Richard is determined, positive and driven by results, all of which have seen his career move from strength-to-strength as he maintains the all-important mantra – ‘you’re only as good as your word’. Should you wish to discuss your property or the market more generally – he welcomes your call.



“I am pleased to report on the great relationship we developed with Richard during the sale of our property at 132B Marine Parade. We selected Richard after discussing the sale with him and other agents. As you will find he is very personable, an excellent listener and a genuine ‘does what he says’ person. The sales process went well, and we were very pleased with the result. Communication was first rate and we have nothing but praise for the way he conducted himself and the sale. Highly recommended”.

Dear Richard,

“Thank you so much for all your hard work, patience and guidance that you have shown to us through the buying process. We are also so grateful for you going to the Auction for us, it really made all the difference. We are so excited to get the house and are really looking forward to planning the next step”.

Richard & Angela Morbey


“We engaged the services of Richard when we moved from Taupo to Tauranga recently. Coming from a small town to a big centre was daunting to say the least. It was a great source of reassurance to know that Richard knew the different areas of the Tauranga, Mount and Papamoa markets and was able to listen to what was important to us, and ‘tailor’ a home to meet our needs. He was personable and able to liaise with other real estate agents to ensure we got to view a wide range of properties. It was a relief when he found a home that ticked all our boxes and was able to help us secure it at auction. We would have no qualms in recommending Richard to anyone who is in the market for either their first home, family home or investment property”.

Tonya and Aaron Dowman


"Thank you Richard Wright for selling our home and exceeding our expectations! Richard went above and beyond - he’s a breath of fresh air. Selling can be a stressful experience but working with an honest and experienced agent meant it was a simple and exciting process. It started with Richard supporting us through how to best present our home, to providing us with an accurate valuation and finally a successful sale at auction. We appreciated the constant communication and feedback throughout the marketing campaign. Richard is a passionate and driven agent. We would absolutely recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a home."

It is our pleasure to submit a testimonial for Richard Wright of Bayleys Real Estate. Through the whole process, he has been a delight to deal with. His professionalism exceeds any real estate agents we have dealt with in the past. From the first stage of viewing, then answering follow up questions promptly & providing relevant information right through to telephone bidding at the auction which Richard personally handled. At no time did we feel under pressure. We felt looked after & trusted in Richards guidance which resulted in securing our desired holiday property. We would recommend him in a heartbeat to anyone who would like honestly, integrity & all-round excellent service.
