Bayleys - Hutt Valley



Having been in the sales and service industry most of my life, with Commercial furniture sales filling up a few years, this coupled with my love of people from all walks of life, it seemed a natural progression to enter the Real estate industry. Which I have enjoyed a successful 5 years so far and loving it,

Growing up in Upper Hutt and still living there , I am very passionate about Upper Hutt and the community and what it has to offer. So my choice of Bayleys gave me the opportunity to work in this community with a professional and friendly company.

Whilst I played squash for many years, I now prefer the gentler art of walking. Over the years I have been involved in both my children’s schools and sporting teams often involved in either managing or organising the teams and have met many friends through this, and my love of coffee has given me the opportunity to make a lot more coffee buddies.

Being an Upper Huttie for most of life, I know a lot about the area and what the community has to offer people from all walks of life! I’m looking forward to working in this area and to meeting you.


“Bev was a fantastic help in finding us a beautiful home to buy for our daughter and her family to rent from us. We wanted something that was affordable for us to buy so we could rent to them at a price they could afford. She found the prefect warm, dry and extremely tidy property for us that fitted our criteria perfectly. The whole process from seeing the property, to moving in, was very quick and easy. Bev was a pleasure to deal with and will definitely to contacting her again in the future when we decide its time for us to move.”

“Thank you so much for the effort you put in to come show us the house, and following up on things. You did really well, was really informative and went the extra mile to find out the information I was after.”



“ We are both so happy Bev 😊 all went perfectly with the move with beautiful sunshine. We both can’t say thank you enough for making this massive journey easy and stress free for us. We will be recommending you highly and get onto our reference for you 😊 thanks for the teats too.”

“Full marks to you Bev for your diligence and excellent customer service. You have addressed positively and energetically our request for assistance with our search for a property to purchase, and although that search has ended abruptly and unexpectedly without benefit to you we are sincerely grateful for your efforts on our behalf.”

“Beverley was an absolute star finding me the best home in the area for my needs. She has a natural instinct to find the right house for the right person. I was able to find a great home within a very short time, and she was very helpful in guiding me through the process so that the move was as smooth as possible. Bev is warm, helpful and intuitive person, and I recommend her highly for all you property needs.”



“Thanks for the bubbles and the chocolates Bev, We’ve really apricated you efforts and support throughout the process. Kind regards.”



“We really enjoyed working with Bev during the selling of our family home of 10 years and buying our dream house in the country. Bev provided the level of professional support we required and also the personal touch that made us feel like she cared about the outcome.”

Marc and Rhiann


“Hey, I’ll keep you in mind for the future when we decide to sell as you were by far the best agent we dealt with through the couple of months we were looking and you are super friendly, so once again thanks so much for all your help.”



My family chose Bev Harris and Stephen Taylor from Bayleys to market our parent’s property because they both had a lovely non pressured, warm and sincere approach that we felt our elderly parents would relate to. We weren’t disappointed.

Bev and Stephen were totally professional and went beyond the call of duty – they organized the Stager, who did an amazing job for a very reasonable fee; they were even prepared to mow the lawns themselves and put out the wheelie bin during the dreadful lockdown period that we were so unfortunate to get caught up in. They kept us up to date with all developments via phone and email, helped us sell surplus furniture and incidentals to the purchasers and best of all, their marketing and commission fees were considerably less than other companies.

We would have no hesitation in recommending Bev and Stephen to anyone wishing to market their property.

Stephen and Bev from Bayleys Real Estate were professional from the start. They came up with a great marketing plan and communicated with us clearly the steps and process of selling our house. Took a lot of stress out of the process, and a big weight off our shoulders.

With all this we had a lot of interest from the get go in the property and had a lot of groups come through the house and offers within the first week of listing the property, even after this Stephen went above and beyond to make sure both parties were happy.

We would highly recommend Stephen and Bev to anyone wanting to sell their property, as they just made the whole process so simple!
