Angela Parker - Harcourts
Angela’s nine years in real estate have seen her consistently achieving results – not only for her clients but also personally. Beginning with the much desired ‘Rookie of the Year’ for the region and she is a regular achiever at the Regional Quarterly Central Awards.
While she enjoys the formal recognition of the hard yards, she says nothing compares to helping her clients move on in their lives, whether it be a new family home, or a smaller home and the life changes this brings.
Her background of marketing, sales and relationship building allow her to listen to the needs of her clients and tailor a plan to suit, to achieve the best results.
Buying and selling real estate is a personal experience, regardless of whether it is a rental property, holiday home or the family residence. Choosing the right agent and the right company is important.
The Harcourts brand has a high profile throughout New Zealand and Australia and the structure and support to back the brand.
Apart from a short initial few years in Taupo, Angela has always resided in Rotorua. She lives with her husband Wayne and 2 daughters in Hamurana, their son, Julian having flown the nest recently.
Angela attended Western Heights High School, and spent the first 15 years of her working life progressing through many roles within the Bank of New Zealand, the last 6 years in a lending role, followed by a marketing role of 5 years with Yellow Pages.
Scion Research became Angela's workplace for 2 years but she missed the challenge of selling, hence her move to the Real Estate Industry. She has enjoyed her successful career in Real Estate, and lives by the motto 'If it's to be - it's up to me!' Although, she has adapted this slightly as she believes that it takes team effort to sell a home - presentation + price + promotion - 'if it's to be, it's up to we!'
She has won many awards in her real estate career but says that she is more driven by the comments and feedback that she gets from clients, some of which are listed under the testimonials section of this site. In her words, she is thrilled to get referral business and rewards referrals of successful sales with a $100 voucher of the referee's choice.
Her husband Wayne, plays a supportive role in Angela's career. Although busy enough in his business selling and servicing lawnmowers and other garden machinery, he provides support where needed and is very patient! Angela has had him out mowing lawns, painting surfeits, and decluttering houses, all for love!
Angela's views on living in Rotorua; 'we are so blessed to live in a city where you see the lake several times a day - just driving to town. We are surrounded by fantastic amenities - the Redwood forests, many lakes, cycleways, shopping centres, tourist facilities. Rotorua is close to beaches, universities, mountains, and despite all Rotorua has to offer - we still don't have heavy traffic delays on our roads during peak times!'
If you are looking to sell your piece of Rotorua paradise, whether it be a lifestyle or residential property, please don't hesitate to call Angela - she will work hard for you.
‘I was highly impressed with the service provided by Angela during the sale of my house. From listing to sale completion, Angela was courteous, helpful and professional and represented her company in an outstanding manner. I would have no hesitation in recommending Angela to any potential buyer/seller.
Angela successfully sold one of my properties. I found Angela to be fantastic! She was professional yet friendly, she really listened to my needs and requirements, followed up quickly and was easy to talk to and get hold of. I found she was not pushy or over the top – a great win/win achiever. Definitely would use Angela’s services again in the future.

We are writing to express our pleasure with Angela Parker, who represented us in our recent purchase of our first home. Angela guided us through the entire process making the offer and closing the deal. Angela made our home-buying experience smooth and stress-free. This is our first purchase of a property, and never had we expected it to be such a pleasurable experience. Angela is savvy, personable and knows the market inside out. To reiterate, we are nothing but pleased with Angela and her expertise and we would recommend her to anyone wanting to either buy or sell property.
Alan and Heather
This is written in appreciation of the success Angela Parker achieved in selling our property, in what is a difficult market. A number of properties in the Ngongotaha area have taken many months to sell, while others remain unsold. At all times through the marketing process, Angela was efficiently focussed but at the same time was also very pleasant, patient and considerate of our needs as ‘oldies’. She was a pleasure to deal with. We are confident that others using her services will find the experiences as positive as we did.
Oliver and Suzy
To Angela, I just want to say out of all the real estate agents we dealt with, you were by far the only one that put so much time and effort to find us a home and with your on-going support and kindness, we found our perfect home! We will be recommending you to everyone!
Anne and Bryan
Angela, you went ‘above and beyond’ in your efforts to help us in our quest for a property, thanks again.
Rose Mc Leod
I would like everyone to know what an excellent agent Angela is. She has given me top service, gone that ‘extra’ mile that an agent wouldn’t be expected to go. I would recommend her to everyone.
Thank you for the great service. Very much appreciated. This is the cherry on top. (Won a prize draw)
Richard and Liz
Thank you very much for the effort and time you put into the sale of our house.
Rob & Jo
Ours was not a straight forward property to sell but Angela got the result through hard work and fair play. She was very well prepared with the market analysis for us to make informed decisions about pitch and price. Maintaining a high level of integrity is important to her and we appreciated the professionalism of that approach. We would have no hesitation recommending her.
Sharon and Jim
Angela was extremely respectful and accommodating and understanding of our situation. We were very happy with what Angela did and we will use Angela again.
