Martha Westerlund

2017 was a fantastic year for Martha and her clients and she is confident that 2018 will continue to see more families happily settling into our friendly community here in beautiful Bay of Islands. This is a wonderful place for families, business people and retirees alike. Having strong hereditary ties to the North Martha has an enduring love and connection with this area. She and her husband returned many years ago from civil service in Wellington to give their children a great start in life. Martha has had over 30 years’ experience in the sales and service industry. In line with her high professional standards she has chosen to work with the most successful real estate company in Northland, Harcourts Bay of Islands Realty Ltd. This gives her, and consequently you, access to the best marketing tools, market information and buyer pool. All this combines to provide you with top quality service for your real estate needs. However, her philosophy is simple; having two ears and one mouth enables one to listen twice as much as one talks. It is this philosophy that enables Martha to discover your needs and supply the necessary tools to help you achieve the best results on your property journey. Thanks for your support everyone. If you're thinking of selling, now's a great time. Give me a call to discuss the best marketing option for your property.


My clients want you to know:

"I had my property on the market for 18 months, it was not an easy sell and one I’m certain many agents would have given up on. Martha has a strong work ethic with a steel reserve and determined approach. This resulted in her achieving tens of thousands of dollars more than other offers presented. She is competitive, focussed and professional with proven negotiation skills. She managed a friendly rapport with my tenants and reduced the stress levels hugely for my family & I. Having tended to council issues and meetings on my behalf she is very knowledgeable showing skill & expertise that have proven to be invaluable in my chosen real estate sales agent and area specialist. Martha is my preferred agent for the future, already selling two other properties for my family, both great results. I highly recommend her and delighted that this testimonial may be beneficial for her.” M. Jenkins WA


"Martha was initially my tenant of many years showing great character, trustworthiness and a resilient work ethic, virtues needed in an agent. She delivered all that she promised exceeding expectation. The regular weekly feedback was important to us as well as the marketing updates and her written vendor reports. Martha has a professional approach and consultative style. We appreciated her recommendations to maximise our marketing budget and we constantly reviewed our strategies and ideas. Her friendly manner made the whole experience less stressful and nothing was too much for her. When selling a highly prized asset you want someone like Martha on your team with all the right attributes, positive attitude and importantly, negotiation skills. Be wise and be confident, Martha never let us down and has become a proven successful real estate sales professional.” NP. Auckland


“I am a buyer and met Martha as a walk in to her office in Kerikeri in 2017. From the start Martha listened to our needs and spent valuable time showing us the beauty of the Bay of Islands that we knew we had made the right decision to buy in the area. She found and accompanied my husband and I to endless viewings of properties that ticked many boxes, she got the mix right every time. We have now brought our second property through Martha and value her expertise and specialised local and regional knowledge. She is friendly and courteous navigating us through the many challenges of real estate in a relaxed and professional manner. I have dealt with many agents over the years and now found an agent and friend to handle our real estate needs in the future. We are thankful she was there the day we walked into Harcourts Kerikeri and know she will accommodate all her clients in the same manner.” A&J Ruthe Sandspit, Warkworth


“As an ex Auckland real estate agent of many years with a brutal expectation I chose Martha because of her enthusiasm, easy demeanour and professional approach. My family owned a high-end tourist lodge with live in management. Martha handled the marketing and sales process extremely well during a booked-out holiday season. Martha reduced stress levels for my family and all parties involved with her calm professional manner and team spirited philosophy. The buyer feedback, updates and vendor reports were consistent, timely and informative. Her recommended marketing campaign was targeted, aggressive and well responded to. She negotiated an unconditional sale price in a region where similar prices had not been reached for two years. Martha doesn’t just sell real estate, she matches buyers and property and truly cares about the families involved. It’s been a great experience working alongside a professional who continues to provide real estate updates to my family.” ASH, Paihia


“Martha is the Emma Peel of Real Estate, she had our back and we knew it” J Young, Auckland


“A professional with strong instincts that you want on your team” J Shaw, Kerikeri


“….she treated our family with respect and courtesy at all times” I Lomus Kerikeri


“…when the phone rings at 10.30pm its either Martha with a counter offer or one of the kids… she’s diligent, resilient and professional and goes the extra mile for you." C Patu, WA


“Martha brought excitement and humour in a respectful way to an otherwise stressful journey filled with disappointments and exhaustion, she’s our hero” N Junang, UK


“…Thorough, detailed and knowledgeable about the market, we saw she knew most properties for sale and those that had sold, we were confident that we had found the right agent for our family and Martha never let us down.” Knaggs, Kerikeri
