About Jenny Virtue

Back to Team

Thinking and doing what is right, has guided Jenny to build a strong foundation in which to pursue a love of all things people.

This passion for people has encompassed a diverse working career which has spanned across the globe and given Jenny the opportunity to interact with people from all walks of life.

Jenny has that natural ability to skilfully interact with others; an avid listener, superb communicator, friendly, warm and kind, testament to Jenny’s success of self-belief in her passion.

A Wainui local for 26 years, Jenny felt it an opportune time, after successfully running several of her own businesses to immerse herself in the art of selling homes and further nurture her love of people in helping them to achieve their dreams through the buying or selling process.

With an eye for detail Jenny’s talents also extend to the outdoors with her love of gardening creating some gorgeous spaces; a talent she loves to share with others.

Married with two adult children, Jenny is a strong advocate for the Gisborne and wider community and is a keen supporter of the Wainui Surf Life Saving Association, of which her son Jack is heavily involved in. Her daughter Sam has also developed Jenny’s eye for detail as a stylist at Head Creative here in Gisborne.

Persistence, hard work and ambition, combined with Jenny’s self-belief are all affirmations that would make Jenny the ideal Agent of choice.


I could not ask for a better estate agent than "magic Jenny".

"A wave of her magic wand", Hey Presto, everything happened with a twink of her nose.  Bronwyn you have a real friend in Jenny.

We have given Jenny a report on sales results.  We were pleased with the service from BK Agency and the results given the "lock Down" period.  Thank you for the wine!

A big thank you to Jenny for guiding me throught the intricate process of house selling. 

Her enthusiastic quiet manner enabled me to work with her without feeling pressured.

The atmosphere at Bronwyn Kay Agency was always cheerful and welcoming.  Many Thanks.

I was very impressed with the service and how the settlement went, the coup de grace, was the lovely basket of goodies I was given when picking up the keys!!!

Thanks again.

I think Jenny did a good job, she supported us through the hiccups and maintained regular contact.  I found the staff at BK absolutely wonderful on those occasions I had to go into the agency.

A great experience, guided by wonderful people.  Thank you all.

We have just sold a property through BronwynKay, with the assistance of Mandy & Jenny. They were very professional and friendly and determined to get the best outcome and result for us, which they did, I would recommend this sales team for anyone hoping to sell their property through Bronwyn Kay.

Listing with Mandy and Jenny made the selling process for my first home very enjoyable.  I was well informed with the progress throughout the process.  Would recommend to anyone!

Andrew Wilks

We can't speak highly enough of Jenny, Mandy & the BK team! They have gone above and beyond in our house selling journey. From pondering if renovating was a good idea to when the sold sticker went on the sign, they have been nothing but supportive, informative and incredibly approachable to all of our million questions! They promised us they would look after us, not only as a client but understood our family and the big picture we wanted to achieve. Our home was sold within a week of the team coming through to view, absolutely seamless! Not to mention, we are extremely happy with the price they were able to help us achieve. We were so well looked after and highly recommend these two amazing ladies if you're considering listing your home! What a team!!!

More Happy Clients

Professional service.  Ben Robertson and Jenny Virtue were both very competent and prepared to go the extra mile to get a good result.

Robin Loomes

 Jenny Virtue acted as the real estate agent when I sold a vacant section, 38 Hamilton Drive, in the Sponge Bay sub-division at Gisborne in May 2019.

 I am very happy to recommend her to anyone who requires the services of a real estate agent. At all stages during the marketing and sale of the property, she conducted herself very competently and very professionally. She was tenacious, showed determination and was prepared to go the extra mile in order to obtain a good result, which she did.



Robin Loomes

Both Johnny and I and our family were very impressed with the communication and integrity of both Mandy and Jen.  Nothing was a problem for them and their interactions with us all and the sale process was faultless.

We will definately use them again and also recommend them to others.

P Williams

I recently brought a property through Mandy and Jenny, they are a pleasure to work with, kept me informed and I knew exactly how everything was going with the purchase of my property.  A+ thanks ladies.

N. Crisp

We found purchasing our house through Jenny was a stress free experience.  At no time did Jenny pressurise us.  She was able to answer all our questions and come back to us with answers to queries that she was not familiar with. 

Prior to purchasing our new home we did not know Jenny.  Once the transaction was completed, we had the feeling that we had made a new friend.  We have no hesitation in recommending Jenny Virtue.




Geoff & Robyn Tomleson

The best people to deal with. Mandy and Jenny amazing and so supportive. I thoroughly recommend them for anyone selling or buying. The auction tonight at Bronwyn Kay was incredible. Everyone was so kind and wishing me luck. Awesome experience and I definitely would deal through this great agency again. X

Kirsten Barrett

The salesperson we dealt with in arranging and finalizing this sale was Jenny Virtue from BK Real Estate                                                 

We found Jenny to be trustworthy and professional in communicating with us. She has a very pleasant nature and prepared to go the extra mile.

We have sold quite a few houses in recent years and would have no hesitation in recommending her to others.


 John and Yvonne Rentoul

Selling of our property at 81 Hamilton Drive

I would like to express our thanks and how Jenny made us feel at ease in selling our home. She kept us fully informed during the sale process and explained the contract to us in a manner that we could understand. Her bright and friendly attitude is a tribute to her. We had no problem in trusting her completely and wouldn't hesitate in recommending her to future clients.


Richard & Marise Henzler

I had prepared myself for an arduous task when my wife and I decided to sell our Gisborne house from overseas. However, after a simple phone call to BK Agency, Jenny put my mind at ease and got the ball rolling straight away. She made the whole process easy and we got a great result on auction day. Thanks Jenny and the BK team!


After months of trying to find our first home and endless auctions, Jenny Virtue you are the best!  Within two weeks of signing up with Bronwyn Kay, we moved into our first dream home.  Jenny made the whole process easy and hassle free.  Thank you so much again Jenny, you are one in a millon and would highly recommend you to every one.

Diana and Tracy

Awesome job Jenny, no improvement needed :)  AAA+

Solly Leota

We found Jenny amazing.  Jenny came to us brimming with confidence, after we'd struggled to sell through another agency,  which boosted our confidence again.  Two weeks after signing up with BK we had the result we were after, Jenny had found the buyers!  

Jenny was very professional in the way she went about the whole process and we would highly recommend her to sell your property.

David & Jessica

I recently put my house on the market with Bronwyn Kay and was allocated Jenny Virtue as my agent.  She was a delight to work with.  She kept me calm and positive when I got stressed with the whole process.  She was professional,  but friendly and helpful throughtout the whole process.  Jenny's communication was excellent all the way through and kept me informed of what was happening.  Nothing was to much trouble for her.

Lesley Wilkin

Jenny Virtue, we cannot thank you enough for helping us find our first family home in New Zealand!

Jenny, went out of her way to understand what type of home we were looking for and ensured it suited every one of our requirements.

We found our perfect home within 2 weeks and we couldn't be any happier!

Outstanding service and we would highly recommend Jenny and The Bronwyn Kay Team!

Kim & Ricardo

Thanks a million Jenny Virtue

Jen Virtue your fabulous, I would thoroughly recommend Jenny. You weren't my listing agent but you did an amazing job and got the job done with passion, empathy and dignity!

Tony & Linda

Just wanted to say a huge thank you for your help with me and Kylie buying our first home.

Not only were you so honest and helpful, but the way you dealt with us was so welcoming and warm, yet professional.  With some other agents, we found that getting information on properties was difficult, or impossible, but not with you.  If you didn’t have the answer to hand, you immediately said that you would find out from the owner, and then you got back to us without us having to chase you up.  Perhaps a small thing, but for us it made the whole process much easier to handle and helped to settle our nerves.  The whole ‘journey’, from arranging the viewing, right down to getting the keys, was smooth and transparent.

We couldn’t have asked for a better, nicer person to introduce us to our new home.  In fact, your excitement was contagious and you made it possible for us to focus more on our new home, rather than the stressful process of the actual move!

Thank you again – I would have no hesitation in recommending you personally  to any vendors or purchasers.  To be honest, I already have.  

Noel & Kylie
