What their clients are saying about them:


Laureen Hayes 

Laureen has a remarkable real estate story to date.  Whilst her successful sales span high end, high profile properties, right through to modest Kiwiana baches, her work ethic centres on three d’s; determination, discretion and diligence.  Does the spotlight ever sit on Laureen?  No thank you – this consummate professional prefers to keep the focus firmly on her property owner and buyers, celebrating a real estate success only when the dots and crosses have aligned impeccably and everyone is happy.  

 A reputation for going the extra mile, often well beyond the sale, has meant Laureen secures much of her business through the positive feedback her clients have provided along the way.  Laureen is grateful for her glowing testimonials and often compares real estate with family life; “real estate is like strong family values, if you focus on people’s needs, dreams and hopes, then back it up with open and honest communication, the process simply works”.  Like real estate, Laureen takes great pride in her family life and when the odd window to relax presents itself, she is most often found hanging out with her beloved family. 

A community spirited woman, Laureen’s feel-good barometer rises when she’s helping out or making a difference to the elderly in town and she is well known and cherished for this.  Other avenues of support are extended to the local Fishing Club where Laureen has recently become a sponsor.  Giving back to the community is extremely important to Laureen. 

Laureen blends her individual work style exceptionally well with the Bayleys brand, she understands how important her own role is to nurture a great result, but also adds the marketing power and reach of the Bayleys brand – making use of all available sales tools to realise a sale.  

Laureen partners with Letitia Partridge, and together with their PA Dawn, are known as Team L. If you are keen to partner with a team of real estate professionals that has established networks within the marketplace, along with a proven track record of selling some of Mangawhai’s finest property to date, please give them a call. 


Letitia Partridge 

Letitia has a simple mantra in real estate - keep it uncomplicated and focus on great communication. This straightforward business philosophy is what clients of Letitia’s have come to love about her; it is result driven and enjoyable at the same time. 

Letitia’s success can also be measured by the high level of repeat and referral business that her reputation of being loyal and ethical within the Mangawhai community has rewarded her with. Like a lot of her clients, she too was originally a holidaymaker in Mangawhai until the departure from the beach simply got too difficult – so she hung up her sunhat in a permanent manner! Living in Mangawhai, she knows the area well. Outside of the job you’ll find her hanging out with family, walking the beach, or meeting up with friends at one of the cafes in town. 

Having been in the industry since 2004, Letitia has shown determined focus. More important however is that working for vendors and purchasers to assist them with their real estate, truly makes her soul sing. 

Keeping you informed at every step in the process, along with overcoming any objections that may present themselves, plus a plethora of other great traits Letitia has, will see your real estate partnership with her a winning one. Along with many industry awards under her belt, the true privilege for Letitia is working in such a dynamic industry and seeing her clients achieve their real estate dreams. That’s the best part she says!

This is the second time Laureen has been involved in selling a section for me and both times I have found Laureen to be enthusiastic, friendly and professional, Her positive, can-do manner is outstanding and this makes her a very pleasant person to deal with. I was kept informed every step of the way and I always felt Laureen had my best interests at heart.
