With more than four years of experience marketing and selling property in the Waikato, equipped with a marketing and communications degree and oozing enthusiasm. Sarah is a powerhouse combination of real estate nouse and an unstoppable work ethic.
At 19 I purchased my first home. Three renovations later, I am still as passionate about real estate as I was the first time I went through an open home. Of my renovations, the most notable is possibly the one we completed as contestants on series one of The Block NZ. After ten weeks of hardwork, little sleep and lots of cameras, Bayleys sold 72 Anzac Street for us at auction. And so my relationship with this great company began.
My parents are dairy farmers; as such I have had the great pleasure of growing up in the wider Waikato region. Primary and secondary schooling began in Otorohanga and finished at St Peters in Cambridge. I completed my tertiary study with a degree in Marketing and Public relations from the University of Waikato which lead to an opportunity with The Waikato Rugby Union where I spent three years delivering marketing strategies and managing events ranging from ITM Cup to All Blacks tests.
Living in the Waikato region and working for the Waikato Rugby Union has taught me a lot about pride of place and the importance kiwis place on where we call home. I know how lucky I am to be able to assist people in the buying and selling process that is part-and-parcel with finding their new place to call home.
Tennis is a passion that I have known all my life. After picking up a racquet at the age of ten, I went on to represent New Zealand a total of eight times before the age of 18. Following this, I took up a full tennis scholarship to the University of Texas, San Antonio where I spent a year travelling, studying and playing tennis abroad. Tennis has taught me the values of commitment, discipline and determination. Lessons that I use as the foundations for my life in work and in play.
I believe we are in the business of people, before property, and it’s achieving successful result for the people I work with, that is ultimately satisfying. Whether it’s selling or buying your family home for years to come, first home or an investment property, each represents an opportunity and a challenge, and I can’t wait to get on board and provide you with solutions for your real estate requirements.
Sarah was a class act in communication and in guidance. A true expert in real estate, and able to negotiate with seeming ease. Sarah represented us professionally to achieve results that were beyond our expectations on every occasion. A pleasure to work with, she made us feel comfortable, informed and certain in our decision making.

Sarah went above and beyond what was expected of her during our house sale. She gave us great advice when it came to getting our property ready for the market. Sarah is professional and has excellent communication. We enjoyed the whole process with her and had great outcomes. We would highly recommend Sarah to anyone looking at selling their property.

Selling our first home was made so easy thanks to Sarah’s above and beyond effort in all areas. She was always efficient and professional and gave us lots of tips and advice to help us with a quick sale. Our house was under contract after 4 days on the market. We couldn’t be happier.
Natasi and Joel Emmett – 1925 Rewi Street, Te Awamutu
What to say about Sarah! Living in Adelaide, Australia most of our communication was done remotely but the dedicated approach of Sarah made this just so easy. I have now sold two properties with Sarah, achieving better than expected outcomes. She is professional, diligent and fun to work with. My first choice for an agent every time!
Tania Carey –1026 Victoria Street & 36 Willoughby Street
Sarah was professional, fair and very empathetic to my situation. She offered sound advice on the sale of my property and made my options clear to me at all times. She understood the features of my home and conveyed them well throughout the marketing campaign. On auction day I was left with no doubt that I was being presented with the truly maximum market value for my home.
Noelene Primmer – 20 Thames Street, Claudelands
It was great dealing with Sarah for the sale of my two homes. She did an incredible job advising me, ensuring it was fantastically presented to the public, producing a great result, well beyond what I could have expected. This was the fourth property transaction I’ve completed with Sarah and there’s no one else I’d consider when it comes to real estate.
