“Talk to Bronwyn” and meet a real estate professional with all the credentials expected of someone with a proven record of success in the marketing and sale of what is likely most people’s highest valued asset, their property.
Bronwyn entered real estate in 2011, bringing with her an unbeatable work ethic and the varied work and life skills accumulated from two high-achievement careers, first in teaching in which she reached the top of her profession, becoming foundation principal of St Matthew’s Primary School in Hastings.
This challenging position, involving managing the multiple requirements of staff, pupils, parents and officialdom, introduced her to people from all walks of life and established a sound grounding in business and customer relations that was to stand her in good stead when in 2001, she opted for a career change and moved to Queensland. There she bought, renovated and sold apartments in the highly competitive Gold Coast market, in so doing highlighting talents in project management and design.
Nine years later, in 2010, she and husband Noel were back in New Zealand, in Tauranga, where they combined Bronwyn’s experience with Noel’s creative and computer skills to begin a new joint career in real estate.
In less than twelve months Bronwyn had outperformed 90% of LJ Hooker’s 650 sales staff to win the company’s Captain’s Club award. It was to be the first of a string of ‘titles’ which has continued since the couple moved to Hawke’s Bay to be closer to grandchildren, and Bronwyn joined Tremains Real Estate in Havelock North.
Testimonials from some of Bronwyn’s clients:
Integrity, commitment, excellent communication skills
Right from our initial meeting to arrange a property appraisal and marketing strategy we were happy to have Bronwyn Grant as our agent with her cheerfulness, warmth and honesty. Advertising by internet and print media was good with a comprehensive range of very good photos.
Throughout the whole marketing and sale process Bronwyn kept us well informed and we recommend her to others considering selling or buying a property because of her integrity, commitment, excellent communication skills and passion for doing the very best for her clients. Hylton and Wendy

I found Bronwyn Grant to be a hardworking, professional land agent who communicates very well. At all times throughout the sale process, she outlined the range of actions which could be taken, allowing me to make informed decisions about how the property was to be marketed. Her appraisal was accurate and the photography of the property was of a very high standard. The sale process was signposted with a clear timeline which was followed. Bronwyn managed to oversee approximately 60 groups viewing the property and facilitated bringing six offers to be considered after the two weeks that the property was before the public. She clearly communicated what was happening throughout this time. I would recommend Bronwyn to anyone wanting to deal with an experienced, well organised agent, who performs her role in a thoroughly professional manner and minimises the stress of selling a property.
Simply the best
We first met Bronwyn a few years ago when she was marketing a section next to our property. We had a chat and from that day onwards we always said if we were to sell our home Bronwyn would be our first point of call…. and she was. From the beginning to the end our experience was enjoyable and fun, thorough with attention to detail, regular communication and updates and at all times professional. Bronwyn’s pleasant and confident manner made us feel relaxed and excited and took any stresses that may have occurred out of the process completely. Thank you Bronwyn, we are extremely happy with your result for us and we are already spreading the word about your excellence in Real Estate. Graham and Marie
Quick and efficient
We first met Bronwyn while we were viewing an open home. She took the time to speak with our family and to find out what type of property we were looking for. Being new to Havelock North, Bronwyn was able to give us information on houses for sale in the area. On another meeting at another open home Bronwyn greeted us by name and chatted with us about our house search.
Several weeks later Bronwyn called to invite us to a private viewing of a house she thought we might be interested in. Bronwyn met us at the house and let us wander around and answered our many questions. Later that day, Bronwyn sent through requested documents and followed up with a phone call to make sure we had received them. We were very interested in the property so Bronwyn organised another private viewing. We made the decision to put an offer in on the property. Within the hour Bronwyn had the paperwork to us ready to make an offer, she briefed us on what would be the next steps and that she would be in contact the following day. Bronwyn made several trips between the vendors and ourselves as the negotiations took place until a price was agreed upon. A problem with the lawyers arose and Bronwyn dealt with the situation professionally and communicated with us fully with what was happening. She followed up with the lawyers making sure all the paperwork was completed correctly. We liked the way Bronwyn got to know us, and what our family required in a home. She worked quickly and efficiently and made sure we had all the information we required. We have no hesitation recommending her to other prospective buyers. S & J Norris
One of the Few
I recently bought a house through Bronwyn Grant, from Tremains. Both my husband and I enjoyed working with her. Bronwyn, as an agent, displays many important qualities. Firstly, she is one of the few agents in Hawkes Bay who followed up on our private viewing of a property. Even though we did not purchase the property, she kept in contact by advising us of new properties that may be suitable that either she or the Tremains team had listed. She took the time to call, showing the personal touch. It is through this diligence that we bought our new home. Bronwyn is diligent. Our schedule was tough; we had to buy a house in four weeks that met the needs of two professionals, two children, and two pets. Bronwyn would often sacrifice her own evening to bring us contracts to sign and counter sign, even at late hours to meet our schedule. I was amazed at her diligence and commitment to meeting our needs. Bronwyn is an excellent communicator. It was easy to get hold of her to talk about the buying process. She was respectful of work hours – I am a teacher and cannot always answer the phone. She would keep me up to date using modern technology; texting and emailing.
She is also a consummate professional. Her manner was always professional and gracious; a real classy lady. She knows her products and will always ask the vendor/listing agents if there is a question from the “leftfield”. She sells properties without being pushy and is loyal to both the vendor and the purchaser. She treads the fine line of meeting both parties needs with grace and aplomb. Her knowledge of the selling/buying process is thorough; emailing LIMS (when available), contacting lawyers, and even advising us of a reputable valuer. Most importantly, she listens to her clients. I would recommend Bronwyn for the above reasons.
Amazing sales ability and after sales care.
Bronwyn, it’s been a long time since we made contact. I really wanted to give a testimonial to your amazing sales ability and your after sales care and contact. Thank you for your innate honesty in all matters concerning the sale of my life style block. The video you organised and the way in which you helped me present the property was impeccably tasteful. I appreciated your friendly approach, and your lack of ambitious push for a fast sale as is common today. Your appraisal of my property was based on realistic values and recent sales in the area. No ridiculous high price or beating me down, really fair market value for both me and the buyer. The buyers told me they were thrilled to be the proud new owners my house and that you had you been very helpful to them as well. I would recommend you to anyone (and have done so) simply because of your integrity and just who you are as a person. Thanks again. Sue
Bronwyn listened to us
We worked with Bronwyn to sell two rental properties in Hastings in late winter 2016. We found the whole process went surprisingly easily and smoothly. Bronwyn discussed with us the merits of various options for selling, recommending ‘sale by tender’ in our case, which we accepted. She worked well with our property manager and the incumbent tenants.
Photography, advertising, and signage were effective in attracting a number of prospective purchasers. Both properties sold within the first stage of the process.
Bronwyn listened to us, and our requests. She was available at times that suited our busy travel schedule and communicated regularly and effectively with us at all stages.
We would definitely be pleased to work with Bronwyn again. Diana and Robin
Bronwyn responded fast
I recently bought a property through Bronwyn and was very happy with not only the purchase but the help Bronwyn gave me. The property went to multiple offers where time was of the essence. Bronwyn responded fast, answered any questions I had, emailed information quickly and was professional through out the whole process. Even when, as part of the multiple offer situation, I was dealing with a Tremains Manager, Bronwyn kept in touch and ensured I had everything I needed in order to get the offer in on time.
Thanks Bronwyn. Liz
Professional and caring
Bronwyn recently marketed and sold my investment property and her performance exceeded all expectations. Bronwyn was professional and caring and she ensured that the interests of the tenant were considered throughout the entire process.
Bronwyn showed that she had her finger on the pulse when it came to knowledge of the market and the appraisal of the property was proven to be very accurate. The whole marketing and sale process was stress free because Bronwyn had outstanding communications skills that extended to ensure that the existing tenant was kept in the loop, which was great to see.
I know that Bronwyn’s hard work was extremely influential in achieving a very satisfying sale price.
Not only would I recommend Bronwyn, I am already recommending Bronwyn and sharing the story of a very successful and pleasant experience with a great sales professional and real estate company. Thank you Bronwyn and a huge thanks to Tremains also. Reece
I am very pleased to provide feedback on Bronwyn Grant’s representation of my section in Iona Road, Havelock North.
Although empty sections cannot rate very highly as earners for real estate agents, Bronwyn put as much effort into selling the section for me as she would have into a million dollar property. Probably more, considering that it took a year to sell.
The length of time it took to move the property was no reflection on Bronwyn’s efforts, as potential buyers foresaw all manner of potential difficulties with the sloping nature of the section and the height restrictions imposed on it. But she kept on toiling away and introduced a large number of people to the property, eventually finding someone who recognised both the potential of the site and the fact that any perceived negatives could be readily managed.
Her signage was excellent, obviously attracting a lot of enquiries judging by the number of people who walked over the site. She kept me fully informed throughout the sale program and was always prompt and thorough in her communications.
I was very happy with Bronwyn’s representation of the property on my behalf and will certainly use her services again should the opportunity arrive. Alan
Results through excellence
I live out of town and was referred to Bronwyn. At my initial meeting with I found her to be extremely professional but friendly. At all times she went beyond the call of duty to help me during the process of purchasing a property. I believe Bronwyn has strong communication skills, her knowledge of property and local sales was outstanding. She was completely focused and had, I felt, compete understanding of the true value of her client (me).
It has been an extremely enjoyable experience meeting and purchasing a property with Bronwyn. I would highly recommend Bronwyn and Tremains. You truly get results through excellence from your salespeople. Connie
I don't know how to thank you enough for all the effort you put into handling the sale of my house, especially for your positive attitude and the way you saw through the difficulties when things became complicated.
Without your support and continued enthusiasm about the house, I know I would have been in real despair and have doubted it would ever sell. And I certainly wouldn't have had any confidence about the price that could be achieved. I very much appreciate all you did - your professionalism, your keeping me so well informed about progress (or lack of!) with buyers, and your friendly, approachable manner throughout. Christine
Bronwyn recently marketed and successfully sold our rural property within the deadline period.
We had considered using a specific rural real estate service but we put our faith in Bronwyn.
This was not blind faith but based on the person we had known for the past 20 years and also the qualities Bronwyn showed as a real estate agent acting on our behalf.
What we experienced and appreciated about Bronwyn was her honesty, trustworthiness, clarity, knowledge, respectful manner, great communication and her clear and professional boundaries.
Bronwyn steered us through the short deadline marketing process so well. She explained the process, answered any questions, advised when asked and, most importantly, did not push us into marketing at a certain date. She worked with us, taking the time to listen and discover our needs.
Bronwyn let us know what was happening every step of the way; in the form of written and verbal feedback. We felt we could contact her at any time, on any day.
Bronwyn did not try to push extra marketing upon us and the marketing plan Bronwyn used was adequate to attract buyers and sell within the time frame.
Tremains has a solid reputation in the real estate market but this was not the primary reason for listing with them. We listed with Bronwyn- a real estate agent we could depend on and trust. We were not disappointed
We would not hesitate to recommend Bronwyn to anyone thinking of selling their home. Jill & David
We made contact with Bronwyn prior to marketing our house through her advertising material. Following our initial meeting we found her to be knowledgeable and thorough regarding the sale process and gave us the confidence that we had selected the right agent. The marketing options were easy to follow and her appraisal subsequently proved to be accurate. She had access to a wider team who provided advice and assistance in preparing the house for sale and making it look the best it could for the open homes. Photography, signage and advertising were all good and made use of digital media as well as hardcopy. We had a very good turnout of potential buyers at the open homes. We were kept informed along the way with feedback via email and phone. The sale went through relatively easily. Bronwyn provided a good level of communication throughout, we were kept informed of progress along the way & I'd happily recommend Bronwyn to others wishing to market their house. Dave & Tracey
