As an out-of-town vendor, I appreciated Bronwyn's frequent updates throughout the sales process. Bronwyn achieved a sales price that exceeded my expectations - I'd unreservedly recommend Bronwyn Kay Agency to any vendors considering selling their property in Gisborne.

A very hard decision to sell made easy by a very capable and efficient Team. Thank you :)

Jolene Rankin

I was very happy with the BK Team and the smoothness of the transaction of selling and buying at the same time.  I was hesitant at first as to the auction process, but was pleasantly surprised!

Bronwyn made it happen!

I had found my dream house online, with little time remaining until the tender closed.  I needed an unconditional cash offer to have any hope of being considered in getting this beautiful home which had generated so much interest.  I owned my own investment property, however I didn't have the money upfront to make an offer and the bank weren't coming to the party. I had talked with another real estate agent who also couldn't give me a solution.  I had almost given up, then I spoke to Bronwyn...she very quickly came up with a plan to make it happen and by krikey was there some action!  Within one day my own house was listed, and in one week I locked in an amazing unconditional cash offer on my property, which enabled me to put in an offer on my dream home.  Wouldn't you know it, the ducks lined up and voila - success!  I can't thank Bronwyn enough - with a near impossible situation and tight time restraints she made it happen.  I have no hesitation in recommending Bronwyn to anyone wanting to sell.  She's clearly a savvy professional who has incredible drive and passion for what she does.   There's no way I could've done it without her.  Thank you Bronwyn.

We have experienced an amazingly positive sale of our home thanks to Kathryn Lawson, Bronwyn Kay and the wonderful team at BK.  From the very beginning we knew that we were a part of a comprehensive team.  We felt wrapped around with their support, encouragement, humour, honesty and aroha.  This all made selling our home an enjoyable and positive journey.  Thanks Kathryn, Bronwyn and Team BK

Lynda & Ron

A Wonderful effort from Bronwyn & Kathryn, a prompt sale at a wonderful price. What more could one want?
Overall a fantastic Experience.

We dealt with Bronwyn Kay when purchasing our house. Right from the initial contact onwards we found her to be professional, enthusiastic, easy to communicate with and efficient. She moved things forward very quickly for us on a property that was everything we were looking for, with a lot of competition to buy the property, Bronwyn made us feel like she was on our side and there for us every step of the way and easily contactable at all times. We will definitely seek her out if and when we are buying or selling again.

Megan Brownie

Bronwyn Kay is the complete professional. She does what she says she will, and in the most personable way. All of her team exhibit the same wonderful mix of Kiwi-can-do.  Bronwyn has built an exemplary business in a highly competitive sector and Gisborne is the better for it. You can trust your property needs to her and her team. I did. 

Nga mihi nui, Hekia

 "If you are considering selling your property, I would highly recommend the friendly team at Bronwyn Kay Agency.

 I have had Bronwyn Kay helping me with selling my property. From the moment she phoned me for the first time I felt secure, well informed and supported. I immediately gained full confidence in her and her guidance on how to proceed into the unknown, scary Real Estate world, which resulted in an excellent final outcome!

On weekly intervals Bronwyn's team have issued me with reports of internet advertising interest rates, open home reports and viewers comments helping me to make appropriate adjustments.

 It's worth saying that Bronwyn's friendly, empathic personality transformed this rather nerve wracking experience into a pleasant life adventure."

Joanna Wojciechowska

Property sold in 2 days with early settlement - no advertising required.  Handled professionally and very speedily.  Thanks Bron & Ben, great sale!

Jenny Jackson

Everything about BK was easy.  From walking through the door in a panic, to leaving the auction very satisfired!  You guys are amazing!  THANK YOU!

Lana Royston

Just a quick note to say thank you again to you and your team for making another purchase so easy, but an especially big thank you to Ben. His can do attitude and ability to make things happen have made all the difference in our buying experience. He has gone above and beyond to find us two perfect properties, made the take overs seemless and then continued to keep us in the loop when new properties maybe popping up. We always look forward to what he might find for us next.

Patience Gunn

Bronwyn's rental management team - Glen in particular - did a fantastic job over 3 years of managing the property.  So it wasn't simply a "practical choice" to ask Bronwyn to handle the sale - there's clearly a great culture in the business, we felt entirely comfortable with them and we were delighted with the service and with the outcome.

Nick Chivers - 184 Ballance St

Such a wonderful job of managing the rental, a no-brainer when it came to sell.

I recommend Bronwyn Kay Agency 100%+

I would like to thank Bronwyn for the very good advice to sell our property.  Also Jenny and Mandy for all they did; very stress free.  Last but very important, Jake - a top man.

Thank you.

Peter Heffernan

Bronwyn, Ben & the team made our sales process seamless.  Great communication and follow up, which is an art that cannot be taught.  Would not hesitate to recommend BK to anyone wanting professional service.

Kate & Tom Reynolds

Process was stress free and we really appreciated how the team worked with the tenant to accommodate showings / open homes.

Mike & Jenny

Friendly, professional, competent and efficient service thoughout the process of selling our home. 

Thank you Bronwyn and your whole team at BK Agency!

James & Wendy Lee

Bronwyn was warm and positive of a good outcome for our sale from our first meeting. Her knowledge of and experience in the local market was invaluable and we felt confident she was the best person for the job.  Great communication throughout the process and an amazing result at the auction.  Thank you so much!

Sarah, Catherine and Fiona Lynagh

Congratulations to Bronwyn Kay.

Thank you for selling our house (home of 50 years). The process was made “seamless”. The agency gave us clear guidelines and made all the appropriate connections.  (good timing and motion skills)  We were shown care and concern. Some words that were important in the selling process - Professional, knowledgeable, accurate, friendly and polite – good people skills.  "Excellent"

John & Robyn Rouse

In the last year I Have bought and sold through Bronwyn on the coastal zone in Gisborne. I have found Bronwyn to be Very enthusiastic and incredibly knowledgeable and operating with a sense of fairness about the market place. Her advice is sound, her integrity outstanding and her results over many years tell the true story. Results don’t lie and Bronwyn delivers on all fronts, I will always use her services in this market place.

Martin Irvine

Thank you all for selling our much loved Wainui home.

 We have cared for and loved this property so much, that once we had made the decision to sell, there was only one agency we trusted in marketing this 'right'.

We found your initial estimate/appraisal accurate and continued feedback on the market response honest. This helped us immensely in setting our expectations.

Having never been through the process of marketing or auctioning a house, it was pretty daunting for us. But Bronwyn and the team made it easy and seemless from start to finish. We were stoked with the support provided and with Jakes brilliance as an auctioneer!!

We can now move forward without any feelings of doubt and in knowing we couldn't have got a better outccome, advise or support. Thank you everyone!


Dion & Trish Ahern

I really enjoyed the positive, friendly interactions with both Bronny and Benny.  They listened to what we wanted and got us top dollar.

Angela Preddey

We initially considered listing with Bronwyn Kay Agency because of high local profile in sales at Wainui/Okitu.  Bronwyn delivered exactly what she said she would and Jake did extremely well in the auction.  Ben was great in his follow up and advice throughout the process, a real asset for BK Agency.  We are both really happy with the outcome and would have no hesitation to sell again through BK Agency.  Thanks very much

BK Selling Wainui

I asked Bronwyn to sell my home and she was on the job.  Very positive and honest.  Bronwyn recommended to go to Auction, perfect call!  Three weeks later and SOLD!!.  So a very big thank you to Bronwyn and all her Team.

Pamela Stewart

I trust and respect Bronwyn, I listed with her because of her reputation, great interpersonal skills and expertise.  

Just keep doing what you are doing, it is what has made you successful - knowledge of people, market, honest open communication is key and it is what Bronwyn has and does!  To quote your advertising, "Bronwyn has soul".

Coral Dunn

Delighted once more with the consistently high level of professionalism and support shown by Bronnie.  Nothing was too much trouble and her vast knowledge and expertise was evident throughout.

The BK Agency office team are warm and welcoming which is appreciated.  Thank you.

Anne Gordon

We listed with Bronwyn Kay Agency as we had heard of Bronwyn's reputation.   She is a very good salesperson and when asked straight up questions we received straight up direct answers.

B & J Jopson

Service was exceptional, communications excellent!

T & B Gaddum

Thank you Bronwyn Kay and staff for making our first home purchase in 27 years, an enjoyable and memborable experience :)

Howard & Wendy Fleetwood

Many thanks for looking after us so well.  We appreciate your professionalism and your care.

Robyn & John

Its always good to get home, even if it is raining!

Just wish to say thank you very much for the service you and your team provided with the sale of our two properties over the last few months.

Your willingness to assist where possible with us going away was appreciated, as it pretty much made it hassle free. As I have not heard to the contrary there were I presume no hick-ups with the settlement of Albert street.

The settlement certainly went smoothly from our end.

 Please pass on our thanks to everyone involved and I look forward to buying or selling a property with Bronwyn Kay in the future!

Another Satisfied Client

 Dear Bronwyn

 Thanks so much for all your help over the past few months to market our home, purchase a home in town and secure land at Scarley's Way to build in the coming months. We have really appreciated your sage advice and guidance which led to a quick sale ahead of auction and the stress-free purchase of the other two titles.

We've really enjoyed working with you and your wonderful team. In a short space of time we have developed the highest level of trust and respect for you. Your passion and integrity are second-to-none and we would not hesitate to recommend Bronwyn Kay Agency to family and friends. Likewise, we'll be turning to you for our own future real estate needs.  

And today was just incredible. Thanks so much for the awesome news that we have won your $10,000 prize draw. We are absolutely ecstatic! After completing three real estate transactions with you in as many months, this really is the icing on the cake. We will be spending our unexpected windfall on a trip back to the UK in 2016, and that is thanks to you!

 Again, thanks so much for all you have done for us.

Craig and Jo Whibley

Thank you Bronwyn and Stef for the encouragement and support you gave me in going ahead with this purchase. I have really valued your "can do" attitude.  At the end of the day, everything we do in life is about personal connections and you two are true believers and practitioners in that.  I'm looking forward to continuing my association with the company through the Property Management team.  Cheers Debra

Debra Smallholme

Thank you to Bronwyn, Stef and to the rest of the team.  We all had success in selling my parents estate.  Everything went well, communication was awesome!  Cheers and thanks so much.

Kelvin Summersby

Bronwyn Kay offered me a higher price for my home than other agents, with a good reputation she also got a higher price than their quotes.  She was very professional and informative at all times, made my house look good in marketing photos and sold my house quickly.
