Professionals Whakatane are a locally owned, award winning real estate sales and rentals/property management team of 23 staff. We are property experts who specialise in all facets of sales and marketing from residential, rural, lifestyle and commercial real estate to rentals and property management.
The company was established in the Eastern Bay in 1959 and joined the Professionals in 1983. With over 60 years in the local business community we are the longest serving real estate company in the area. Throughout this time the company has continued to maintain its long held position as a market leader in the Eastern Bay of Plenty. We understand that to achieve results in this competitive environment we must respect that the buying and selling of property is usually the singular largest investment decision that our clients make. When you deal with us you can expect no less than knowledgeable, experienced, professional advice and service. Our staff have been recognised over the years within the Professionals, the Real Estate Institute of New Zealand and the Leading Property Managers of New Zealand groups. The company was recognised locally with the Horizon Business Awards 2012 ‘Marketing and Retail Excellence’ Award and in 2017 received the Australasian ‘Professionals Office of the Year Award’. We are proud of our Gold Star sponsorship status with the Child Cancer Foundation and since 1994 we have helped them continue their invaluable work by contributing over $4.6 million in donations and project funding and on the local scene, we have raised in excess of $127,000 with our annual Child Cancer Charity auctions since 2013.
Company Director’s Kathryn McKay and Maurice and Lee-Anne Butler together combine a wealth of experience and professional expertise. We are proud to be heading a company with such a long association with the Whakatane District and enjoy the challenge of operating the business in a constantly evolving industry and competitive and vibrant local market.
