About Kathryn Lawson

Back to Team

Born and bred in the Bay of Plenty with time spent in the Waikato, my family and I made the decision to move to Gisborne in 2016. Offering such a wonderful lifestyle, Gisborne and the community have embraced us with open arms and we are just so proud to call Tairawhiti home.

As a young mum at 16, I soon learnt that without self-belief and determination I would not achieve my dream of becoming the successful business woman I wished to be. I set about completing my high school education and undertook a variety of roles within the workforce to further enhance the skills required to work towards that goal I had in mind.

I was fortunate to cross paths with Bronwyn Kay soon after arriving in Gisborne and she offered me a position within her company. As I completed my Salesperson Licence I fulfilled a number of roles including Marketing Specialist, Assistant to Bronwyn Kay and PA to Jake our Auctioneer all whilst accumulating invaluable experience alongside a dedicated and inspiring team.

With the support of my partner and family and a huge admiration for Bronwyn I am now ready and excited to kick start my journey into Real Estate and to help you on your journey of discovery.

Honest, outgoing, friendly and approachable, I really would love to be the Agent that helps you fulfil your dreams of home ownership.


We found the purchasing process uncomplicated with Bronwyn Kay Agency.  As we lived out of town they were very helpful with the pre-inspection proir to settlement.  The follow through and follow up was great.  We felt very informed throughout the process.

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

We purchased our first home through Kathryn and couldn’t be happier. We viewed around 15 properties over two days, using almost all the real estate firms in Gisborne but our experience with Kathryn stood out by far. She was real understanding with us being first home buyers and always willing to answer heaps of questions we always had. The process from start to finish was made a lot easier than we initially thought and we are super excited to be moving into our first home.

James & Tash

Our first impression of Kathryn was that she was down to earth, genuine and sincere. We liked that she gave us all the information we asked for quickly but did not try to push us into decisions.  We met her one week and less than a week later we purchased an investment property from her.  Everyone was great at Bronwyn Kay.


Kathryn went above and beyond to sell our property, her effort was shown in the fantastic result we achieved. We will most definitely be doing business with Kathryn again.

Jensen & Waimotu

Kathryn is amazing. She wasn't just friendly, helpful and efficient, she went out of her way to make the buying process as smooth and stress free as humanly possible. She listened and heard our needs and provided everything we wanted, a lot like a personal genie. We absolutely recommend her to anyone delving into real estate, whether it be your first nerve wracking time, or an investment for your future. Thank you Kathryn, you are pure gold.


Jade and Paul

Well, I have sold my house after a very short time by a very dedicated team of experts. I was out painting my front fence and along come this lady and asked me if I was selling my house, and yes, I was. That lady was Kathryn Lawson and everything flowed perfectly from there. Kathryn kept me informed every step of the way and she was a pleasure to deal with, so thanks to the team Bronwyn Kay.

My hubby and l had decided to downsize our house. I felt it would be too daunting to do alone so decided to go with an agent.

I heard a whisper that BK were the best and decided on checking out one of their open homes. I stumbled upon Kathryn, a bright and bubbly person, always obliging and diligent, nothing was too hard for her. Kathryn understood our needs and looked for someone to love and appreciate our home as we did.

I have no hesitation recommending Kathryn to future vendors wanting to sell. I would like to wish Kathryn and her team the very best in the future and thank you once again for all the wonderful help Kathryn.

Lynley & James Riini

Kathryn called me enquiring if our property was available for sale - she passes it every day and noticed it was vacant. Since I'm not personally on the property register I was impressed she tracked me down and she had my attention.

Kathryn kept in close touch for quite some weeks while we got some complications sorted, gave valuable advice and service, and the agency had a buyer already in the wings so we were set up for a very quick turnaround. Well done BK and Thank You!

This is the first time we have put a house on the market, and Kathryn has made us feel very supported in the process. She offers professional advice, listens to what we need and makes it happen. Kathryn is a pleasure to work with and we look forward to seeing how the sale goes.
