A few recent Testimonials...


Jenny and Bill Manktelow – Mairangi Bay

For the first time ever we have sold a house, a house we had lived in for 44 years, so we were facing the task with, at times, total fear!

We contacted several agencies and at Bayleys we met Tara Menzies and almost instantly decided she would be our agent of choice because she gave answers to all our questions, before we asked them, and was obviously right on top of the task we were to set her. She treated us with friendly respect and we quickly lost all our fears.

Once appointed Tara set to with a will and very quickly gave us a marketing plan, produced all the necessary advertising material and gave an accurate assessment of our valuation.We had a problem with the Council not recording the completion of some alterations we had done and Tara sorted this out with remarkable speed particularly considering she was dealing with the council!

Throughout the sales process Tara acted very professionally, keeping us fully informed yet leaving us with the feeling that she was a friend helping us sell our house rather than an Estate Agent. The sale went off  almost exactly as Tara predicted and we were totally satisfied with the result.

We will never sell a house again but have no hesitation in recommending Tara as the perfect Agent to sell a property.


Dan and Robyn Fisher - Glenfield

We found Tara to be very friendly, professional and easy to work with when purchasing our property through Bayleys recently.  She wasn't pushy or over the top, and kept us informed and up to date during the whole process right through to settlement.  Would definitely recommend Tara to anyone.


Corey Marshall – Rothesay Bay

We have been privileged on a number of property transactions to work with Tara Menzies and the Bayleys property group. Tara is a highly motivated & experienced realtor that understands the importance of both the buying & selling side of a property transactions and works with prospective sellers & buyers to achieve market value. Ultimately this assures anyone dealing with her of a fair transaction. We would recommend Tara and have done so to our family & friends.


Pat Costello – Mairangi Bay

Thank you both very much for all your hard work.

I felt you made the selling process clear  to us and you had excellent communication with us throughout the campaign.

Your negotiating skill with all parties were most helpful. You succeeded in getting a sale where others had not been successful.
