Lea continues to focus on increasing her sales upon using proven marketing strategies to actively promote the area to local and international buyers.


We were very pleased we hired Lea Jurkovich to market our holiday home in a beachside community. No sooner had she taken over from the previous agent than she very quickly organized an open home which resulted in a sale inside of two weeks. We were very impressed with Lea's enthusiasm and professionalism and would recommend her to any other vendor.

Brian Holland & Shelley Dromgool

On both occasions, she went the extra mile for us. Lea was approachable, caring and friendly and at all times professional.Lea acted as our real estate agent recently when she sold a property on our behalf and then when we purchased another.

After we bought again, she has kept in touch to see how things are going and has taken the trouble to introduce us to people in the community.

We have no hesitation in recommending Lea and would readily use her again.

To Whom It May Concern

I used the services of Lea Jurkovich to market my property in August 2014.

I had been trying to sell my property for 3 years, during that time I had used 3 different agents and the house remained unsold. I felt very disillusioned with the real estate market in general. Not one agent had anything original to offer me apart from increasing the advertising budget and reducing my price.

Lea came to see me and announced confidently that she knew how to sell my property. I had no faith in her ability at this stage but thought I had nothing to lose by giving her ago.

From the day she got involved things happened very quickly.

Lea gave me a professional assessment of how she could market my property and the type of potential buyers she thought I would sell to.

I loved her enthusiasm, dynamic personality and unending belief in my property, not at any cost but at a realistic and fair market value.

My property sold 4 weeks later, this sale was totally down to Lea going the extra mile to make it happen and never once giving up.

I would thoroughly recommend Lea’s real estate ability and would not hesitate in saying she is the best Agent around.

“I was recently approached by Lea Jurkovich who had heard I was looking for an investment property for my son currently offshore.

Lea had the ability to hone in on my needs, think it through thoroughly and come up with a clear picture of where I should be looking.

It was so refreshing after the number of enquiries I had made to agents who aren’t really listening, assume they know what would suit me after a few words on the phone and without any prior knowledge of me.

Along comes Lea, keen to meet face to face, eager to listen and tirelessly ready to put in the leg work to make things happen.

As it turned out she sensed the second property we viewed together would be the answer and it was, it was exactly what we needed and the time and patience she invested resulted in a great sale and smiles all around on both sides.”

I can highly recommend Lea and wish her every success in the future.

We found Lea to be a very motivated and professional agent who has a wide knowledge of the local market and also came highly recommended. Lea would go above and beyond in a hassle free manner. She would return our calls promptly and we were happy with the end result with a quick turnaround in the sale of our beach house. We would not hesitate in recommending Lea to anyone looking to sell their property.

Thanks :)

“Lea is a great sales woman. Enthusiastic and genuine.”

“Thank you Lea for selling our lovely home.”

Roy and Sherill

Many thanks for your compassion and understanding over a stressful time, during the sale of our father’s home. Not only did your realise how important it was as Dad’s legacy to get the highest price, but also how important it was to us that Dad’s house was a home … not an occasional Bach. You found us the perfect person to buy, and she is just as happy to be living there.

Three sold in one day!

Lea was fantastic! We had a sale in three days without even advertising and for a very fair price. Lea is an excellent communicator and is very open, honest and friendly to deal with which has not always been our experience with real estate agents in the past. We really appreciated her forthright manner and felt she had our best interests at heart ... in the end, everyone was happy which is a nice way to conduct business. Thank you Lea, can't wait to have a wee glass of something fruity to celebrate with you!

Lea had undertaken to navigate the sale of our existing home, the purchase (and sale) of our new home and the further sale of a third home in the 'train' of properties. This complex undertaking was dealt with absolute integrity and professionalism every step of the way. Lea ensured constant communication with all parties, and her calming confidence gave a sense of reliability and reassurance. Lea worked relentlessly for solutions with all involved, and her determination shone through to culminate in successful outcomes for all. Lea has the ability to 'listen' to her clients’ needs, and get results with a subtle yet assertive manner. Thank you Lea, for all you have achieved for the parties involved.

Isla and Kym Trapski

It has been a delight for us to work with Lea on the sale of our property. She has been optimistic while staying practical, enthusiastic while attending to detail, supportive while being open and direct. She respected our property, our privacy, our personal feelings and our requirements. She has kept in touch with us throughout the process responded quickly to any queries we’ve had. And she has achieved a great result. Thank you, Lea, you made it easy.”

We really are delighted with the outcome Lea, you’re the one as far as we’re concerned.

“We recently sold our holiday home in Hahei. It wasn’t an easy decision to make after enjoying 27 happy years of family holidays. We engaged Lea Jurkovich of Bayleys to undertake the marketing and selling of our house. We did have our reservations at the beginning as Lea didn’t have a local office in Hahei but soon realised she had the support of a larger professional team based in Whitianga utilising an enormous database throughout NZ. Her dedication and commitment throughout the whole campaign was a major contributor to a successful outcome. I would have no hesitation to recommend Lea to any prospective clients. You will be in good hands.

Trish and Gary November 2017

Right from the start Lea heard our needs and thoughts about the value of our home. She did her homework and research and discussed the type of client who may be interested and how she would promote the property. All the way along Lea was open and respectful in managing our expectations and the roller coaster feelings a number of vendors must go through. She was a steadying and calm influence. Lea always contacted us after every open home and weekly gave us a verbal update. We know she did a lot of work behind the scenes. We could not recommend her enough. Lea demonstrated exceptional ethical practice which is what we were looking for in an agent.

Lea was a thorough joy to work with, right from her initial visit with us in August through to the exciting auction result. She never over promised and always over delivered. She quietly toiled away working with all the purchasers and kept us informed almost daily. Our phones were so busy she'll be pleased I've gone! I was impressed with her thoughtful answers and solutions to my queries and her diligent business approach to all the legal matters. No box was left un-ticked

I have bought and sold over 14 homes over the years and Lea stands out as the most professional salesperson I've ever worked with. There's been some goodies too: Wallace's, Rainbow, MacDonald to name a few. The outstanding result is testament to her passion and dedication to the job.

Richard also brought a very relaxed and professional approach to the table and we also appreciated his visit to the Bach a few weeks ago. His experience gave us confidence and he did a marvellous job on the floor at the auction to achieve a result far above what we ever expected.
