We all desire a life well lived and the perfect property can add so much to your enjoyment of life. I love helping people achieve their Real Estate dreams whether buying or selling, and sharing my knowledge and enthusiasm for our amazing vibrant region. My passion for the Matakana coast region was born on my first visit, and continues to grow along with the many trees my partner and I have planted on our lifestyle block just a few minutes from Matakana village.
Before this blissful rural existence, I had another life as a TV and Radio presenter in the UK. This amazing experience helped me to develop fantastic communication and negotiation skills whilst working with people from all walks of life. Living and working in Matakana couldn't be more of a contrast to my life in central London and although I miss aspects of that city, I feel extremely privileged to be here and am constantly in awe of its beauty and community.
I pride myself on being resourceful, energetic, honest & hard-working. I am a people person at heart, so providing exceptional customer service is really integral to how I work. I have developed a strong reputation for selling unique properties and achieving the best possible outcome for my clients and in the process having some fun! I am passionate about people and property, call me and lets chat over coffee (but I'll be drinking green tea) about how I can work wonders for you.
"Our relationship with Wendy began three years ago, when upon a recommendation from a friend, we approached her to signal our intent to sell our bach in Whangateau.
The timing wasn't right for us in 2013, but from those initial conversations, we knew that when we were to sell the bach, we'd found our agent.
Fast forward three years and although we are based in Melbourne, Australia, the process was seamless due to Wendy's commitment to us as her clients. Her focus on ensuring we were across all details, made us feel empowered and confident during the sale.
Thank you Wendy for making this a positive outcome for us. Your professionalism, honesty, pragmatishm and warmth shone through from beginning to end. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to family, friends and colleagues."

Wendy is an absolute pleasure to work with and made our first home buying process so much easier! Going into our first property purchase was quite daunting but working with Wendy really gave us peace of mind that all was going well. She truly went above and beyond to ensure we were constantly updated with what was going on. We really couldn't ask for a better agent and now friend. When it comes to doing it all again, there's no doubt in our minds who we'll be working with! If you're after an agent that you know you can trust with your best interest in mind, look no further than Wendy Douglas.

"Wendy, you are bringing a new dimension to Real Estate! Helping us find gardeners, people to paint our house, and guiding us through the CCC...we quickly found out this was standard practice for Wendy. Building trust through actions not words was evident from day one. There were no lows, there was no stress from start to finish and this was thanks to Wendy's approach to us as people - she cared, she was working for us, we were the client and she was going to deliver the best price for our house possible. At the end of the sale we were very satisfied knowing that transparency and honesty was prevalent on both sides of the table. If you want a sale with this type of service and outcome, I can only recommend Wendy."
"Engaging Wendy to sell our group-owned bach bought a positive, creative and personable approach to the sales and marketing process which we greatly valued. We would highly recommend Wendy to anyone looking for a dynamic problem solver, a calm communicator and an agent committed to working hard for them."

"Wendy was so generous with her time...she always had such a fantastic attitude and was so encouraging. I would recommend Wendy to anyone wanting to sell or looking at buying."
"As stressful as selling a home can be, it meant a lot to be working with someone who I could communicate with. Wendy was responsive, caring, funny and easy to work with. It was clear that she had a very good rapport with potential buyers as well. But, most of all, she did a fantastic job of selling our house at a price that made us happy."

"You demonstrated such a depth of commitment to supporting me in whatever I needed to be able to make an offer. Your warmth and genuineness quickly built my trust and I felt your values of integrity and honesty. You did an outstanding job and I'm so grateful to you for turning a seemingly casual enquiry into a sale which for me has provided such a sense of excitement about my future."
"Wendy’s friendly, easy going manner and helpfulness set her apart from some of the other agents we’d met. We had tight deadlines and Wendy was invaluable in sorting out access and contractors to ensure that we could keep everything on track. She was in constant contact throughout the purchase keeping us fully informed."
