About Dianne Holland

Back to Team

Her professional no-fuss approach and consistently high sale prices have seen Di become one of the rising stars of the Gisborne real estate industry.

A seasoned property investor, Di has joined with her family to build an impressive investment portfolio, and she and husband Russell have run a successful website company for more than 20 years. Her experience, strong business acumen and understanding of complex transactions are well suited to the astute investor.

Di comes from a long-standing Gisborne family and has an intimate knowledge of the region and its history. She focuses her energies in the popular suburbs of the Whataupoko and Mangapapa but is happy to market property throughout all of the city and surrounding areas.

Outside of real estate, Di has had a long association with the Sonrise Christian School as a parent, board member and proprietor, and is a committed member of her local church. She enjoys spending time with her family and friends and making the most of Gisborne’s world-class beaches and wineries.

Helping people achieve their property goals is never far from mind and Di is constantly on the lookout for the right opportunities for her clients. Her proven track record speaks for itself, so remember if you want an outstanding result ….."Sell or Buy with Di!"


I found Dianne 100% professional, competent and helpful.  She always answered my queries fully and I felt I could trust her. This is vitally important. Dianne inspires confidence.

Once again Dianne Holland was the right lady for the job!  I was so impressed first time around three years ago that when we had to sell my dad’s house I immediately thought of her.  She is one of those people who quietly works at getting the job done.  Dianne is not one of those pushy – all talk / no action agents. Instead she does what she says she will and most of all gets the desired result for her clients.

I have no hesitation in recommending Dianne as a trustworthy hard working person who gets the job done by getting stuck in.  its that good old kiwi way of hard work pays off. 

 I have included a separate testimonial but would like to add that all the BK staff I have had contact with are great ambassadors for your agency,.  From Tom who by the ways make a great cup of tea to Sabrina’s smiling cheerful personality as well the lovely Liz and of course the sell or by with Di who is a star!

We saw Di had sold a house down the street and decided to use her as we are from out of town and wanted to sell our rental property.  We were really happy with Di, she was super professional.


..... I see that you are continuing to improve and expand and may I say, you have selected  wonderful staff.  Keep this up as the people that work for you make all the difference....

We sold our rentals through Dianne, she was very good at considering our concerns regarding our tenants.  Many other sales agents would not have considered this to be an important concern.  We would recommend Bronwyn Kay Agency & Dianne to our family and friends.

Nice, easy and friendly process :)

I feel very fortunate to have met Di in her role as a sales person.  I know I am a "high maintenance" customer, but she was always patient diplomatic and honest.  She understood me and what I wanted to achieve, when I asked for advice, she gave it freely and clearly.  Nothing was ever too much trouble. She was prompt and efficient in all her dealings with me, always available to help/show/explain.

One day, in the future, when I come to sell, her expertise as an agent will shine for me again, but from the other side of the fence.  I have every confidence in Di and everyone at BK Agency.

Di made the whole experience easy & kept us informed the entire journey.  I wouldn't hesitate using her again to buy/sell.

Dianne Holland was very professional throughout the whole process and would use her in the future if I decide to sell.

Sandy Fenton

Di was very professional throughout the whole sale process of our property, and showed great patience and focus despite the amount of time it took to achieve a sale. We would have no hesitation in recommending Di to any prospective seller.

Chris Palmer

You were absolutely great to deal with.  Most real estate agents are a pain to deal with...You were most delightful and appeared to be full of enthusiasm, so I will definitely be staying in touch for furture purchases.

It is often said “Friendship doesn't mix with business”. But there are always those exceptions where it can prove a positive combination.

Di Holland has been a close personal friend of ours for over a decade and during the span of our friendship there have been many discussions on the topic of real estate

Therefore Di’s progression into Real Estate didn’t come as a surprise to us as she has always shown a passion for, and a working knowledge of, the industry. 

When we decided to sell our property we did not hesitate to list with Di… and we have not regretted it for a second.

To start we received great advice on marketing and presenting the property for inspection. Then Di worked hard to secure a buyer that fell in love with our property. The end result was that three weeks from listing we settled our unconditional sale – we couldn’t help but be happy with that!

Thank you Di for your effort and your enthusiasm to achieve such a great result. We have no doubt that you will work as hard and as professionally for anybody else that chooses to list with you and wish you well doing what you love.

“Couldn’t have asked for more from Dianne, in a difficult situation she is great – thank you”


“Di Holland was the most amazing real estate person I have dealt with over the many years I have brought and sold homes. She was always in contact, went the extra mile and treated us as though we were special. We asked about lawyers and we were recommended the best I have ever come across”
