About Taan Suwanduang

Back to Team

Residential specialist, Taan Suwanduang, has wooed her way into the hearts of Gisborne homebuyers and sellers with empathy, trust, and delicious Thai dishes.

Taan knows exactly how emotionally charged buying or selling a home can be – she’s been there. An experienced property investor with an eye for opportunities, her expertise, patience and understanding make the process as seamless and stress-free as possible.

It’s Taan’s unique ability to relate to buyers that stands her apart from other agents. Her friendly nature instantly puts you at ease and makes you feel comfortable – a bonus for all parties involved in the property transaction.

Originally from northeast Thailand, Taan was drawn to Gisborne for its property potential and has achieved outstanding sales results in a range of market conditions. She’s inspired by the variety of homes available here and is genuinely excited to help people reach their property goals.

Taan loves to cook and gives away the recipe to her signature dish, Thai fish red curry, at her open homes to ensure every potential buyer walks away feeling looked after. She even offers to cook for her clients after a successful sale so they can relax and celebrate their new home – or say goodbye to an old one.

Whether you’re in the market to buy or sell, Taan will serve up a real estate experience to remember for all the right reasons. Contact her for a confidential discussion about your property plans today.


Taan said she would find a home for Macgregor and she did!!  Gave us access to a recently listed property before photos even taked - made all the difference.  Taan absolutely did everything realistically possible to assit us in purchasing this home.

Taan worked quickly and got us an unexpected and amazing price for our property.  Happy to work with her again in the future.

Thank you to you and the BK team for the goody box yesterday. Although my first time dealing with real estate so I can't compare, I'm pretty sure I received a service second-to-none right from the day I met you at another property. You kept in touch with me all the way with upcoming homes and potential purchases and if it weren't for your patience and persistence I probably would've lost momentum and ended up buying nothing. So thanks again, you've been brilliant.

Job done, great result thanks Taan!!

We are very happy that we chose Taan to sell our home, she is very knowledgeable and lovely to work with. We created a plan together for all aspects of our sale and we even managed to exceed the icing on the cake! I would only use Taan again to sell my future property and have already recommended her to others.

Simon Carter

Thanks Taan, great job, great results!!

Simon & Paola

Once again we were very impressed with the attention of Taan in every detail, so friendly, she seemed part of the family.  A pleasure to deal with!

Buckingham and Richardson

Bronwyn Kay Agency's treatment of us made us feel very important and that they genuinely cared about our well being.

it was there show of genuine care that we choose Bronwyn Kay Agency to be our real estate agent.

Thank you so much for everything.

We had an association with Taan before purchasing this home as Taan is the agent of the house that we are currently renting, that has gone on the market.  This situation could have been stressful, however, with Taan's bubbly personality and open, honest communication, our fears were allayed.  Taan was also the person who alerted us to the opportunity of purchasing 5 Murdock Road, of which we are eternally grateful.

Our dealings with Freddy were brief, as your website states, 5 Murdoch was listed and sold within 24 hours.  Albeit brief, we found him engaging, motivated and a pleasure to meet.

Margaret Middleton-Whare

I would thoroughly recommend Bronwyn Kay as the company has a good reputation and is very thorough with the whole property process.

The salesperson keeps in regular contact with feedback from open homes and lets you know if there is a client not over the open home period.

Valerie Bloem

We found Taan professional to deal with throughout this purchase.  She kept us informed & regularly communicated with us.

Very professional service, would thoroughly recommend.

Claire Jones

Taan when Chris past away you sent the most beautiful flowers and that's why I gave you my house to sell.  Thank you, you are so lovely.  My love to you.

Doris Dyer

Taan was recommended by a friend and was excellent in all aspects of the sale of our home.  As first time sellers she helped us understand the process and various options for us.  She made us feel confident and at ease with it all.  Taan was very acommodating to our needs with a young family.  We are very thankful to Taan and the BK Team.


Zara & Michael Henderson

Taan was very friendly and knowledgeable, she provided us all the information we needed to make our decision to buy.  She was very fast with all communication and even came and said Hi when we ran into each other at the local cafe.

Taan made the purchase very easy for us and came to my workplace when I was unable to leave the office.  Goes the extra mile, very happy person and super professional.  We both instantly felt special and well cared for.

Kristine Twigley and Ron Skelton

We brought and sold our lovely home through Taan at Bronwyn Kay Agency.  We found Taan enthusiastic, approachable, realistic and we were guided with the best knowledge.  I would definitely buy and sell our future home through Bronwyn Kay.

Ashley & Hayden Bayley

Why did you list with Bronwyn Kay? -  The Reputation, Salesperson and the Marketing Plan.

I had the best experience selling with Taan - property on the market for 5 days and sold for more than asking price - couldn't have asked for more :)


Alice Trevelyan

I wish I could conjure up some suggestions on how you could improve your service, however, I genuinely cannot offer comment on how such exemplary service, from beginning to end, can possibly improve.  We will be forever grateful for Taan & the Bronwyn Kay Team ensuring that selling our home was such a positive experience.  Great friendships make, excellent service, excellent people.  Many thanks.

J Ovenden

Faultless!  Taan was absolutely amazing and delivered everything as promised.  Highly recommend and wouldn't hesitate in listing with BK Agency in the future.


Taan was brilliant going over and above expectations, keeping us in the loop constantly, her professionalism, knowledge of the local market and communication is exceptional.  Thanks Taan you have been great! :)

Peter & Kim LeSech

Taan received an amazing bunch of flowers from some new purchashers and this is what the card said...

We wanted you to have a bit more beauty in your day before you leave us to go home for a well deserved break.  Thank you for all the beauty you have brought into our lives.  Cheers to new beginnings and beautiful friendships.  Total and utter appreciation for all your hard work.

We love Taan!  Thanks for helping us buy our first NZ Home!

Riaan & Sonja

We got to know Taan when she marketed and sold our neighbor’s home. We liked the way she went about promoting the property and open homes. When we decided to sell, we said we would use Taan as our agent. So glad we did! Taan and the Bronwyn Kay team were great. Taan kept us up to date with everything, text, phone calls, emails. A very positive experience. Taan was quick to take us through a new listing after we had sold. She felt it was just us. How right she was. The sale of our existing home and purchase of our next was very smooth. Thank you Taan, George and the Bronwyn Kay team.

From Paul and Pauline.

Taste Success With Taan

Thank you for giving me the courage to take the big step of buying a home for me to make a sanctuary (in my old age). I really appreciate all you have done.


Thank you so much for helping us getting our property sold.

Your help and hardwork was invaluable to us and we wish you all the best for  a profitable 2013 .


Sarah & Paul Garrett

“Two years ago I purchased a house through Taan Suwanduang as a family home for myself and my children.  I wanted an agent who wasn’t “pushy” and was very fortunate to find this and many other wonderful qualities in Taan.  As a direct result of these kind and caring attributes we have developed a great rapport, and not only would I buy again through Taan in a HEARTBEAT, but would highly recommend her to anyone who was looking for a property.  This is a lady who is outstanding in her field, and the copassion and understanding that is needed when tying all the components of real estate together.”

Debbie Valois

“I have had the pleasure of working with Taan on a property I purchased from her.  Her 

communication skills and honesty are a rare commodity these days and she will have a great future in this industry. 

I would have no hesitation in working with her again and recommending her to others that cross her path.

I wish Taan well in her career as a real estate person and thank her once again for the experience of working with her.”

Rick Brenchley

Two years ago I moved to Gisborne and was lucky enough to meet Taan while I was house hunting.  I found her to be professional and helpful but also friendly and happy to give me time to consider my options.  Thank you Taan


“We live in England and have recently sold our property in Gisborne through Taan.  We have to say it was a pleasure dealing with her through just email correspondence, having never met her in person.

Her attention to detail was first class, and we have very regular updates as the sale progressed.

All in all we have been very satisfield.”

Mike Wilkins and Andrew Nicholson

"Taan's pleasant, proactive and professional approach, provided the incentive for me to engage her services during 2013.  Initially, to market/sell my parents home, then suddenly my own home also!  This accomplished, Taan diligently began to search, within the given price bracket, for my idea of a desirable home - I strongly admire her patience and perseverance.  Once discovered, Taan was required to utilise her considerable negotiation skills to achieve a mutually agreeable price.  3 x missions successfully executed and accomplished.  In my opinion, Taan is an empathetic, genuine person of integrity.  Well done Taan, thank you!  PS. The additional bonus is Taan's complimentary Thai cooking lesson - DEEELICIOUS!!"

Gail H

"Thank you for all the work you have done towards the sale of our house in Clifford Street.  We were very impressed with your tireless effort to present our house, with open house presentations over the weekends and weekly showings, culminating in its eventual sale.  We were equally impressed with the weekly marketing reports, keeping us in the loop.  These we valued highly as we live in Rotorua and as the house in Clifford was unoccupied it was a good feeling in the knowledge that you were there in Gisborne keeping a watch over our property, organising to have our lawns mowed and ensuring that our home was presented at its best.  Once again we say thank you and wish you all the best in your future at Bronwyn Kay Agency.  Say thank you from us to Bronwyn and the team for the dedicated and concerted team work involved in selling our home."

Jim & Marie Hay

“Taan was amazing to work with during the purchase of our first home. We really appreciated her honesty, friendly nature, organised and professional work. We are so happy with our purchase and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Taan and Bronwyn Kay to all our family and friends”


"Taan is an amazing sales person, honest and going beyond call of duty. My children love her LOL. Thank you for all the extras you did for us, arranging trade people, meeting them and countless extra hours put into making this purchase happen. Made a friend with our family" 

D Rowell L Webb

"Taan is awesome!"

Jason Clarke

Dear Taan,

"Thank you for all your wonderful support, advocacy and understanding, you have no idea how much you have helped me get through this “selling/buying thing” J Words cannot express what I would like to say, you are a wonderful person Taan and a brilliant sales woman. Lots of love and blessings for a very bright future"

Linda Haines

"Everything possible was done for me especially hard when I come from out of town. I enjoyed the encounter and have no complaints"
