As first home buyers we were nervous about the process until we came across Rachel. She not only supported us from start to finish but she was as committed as we were to finding the right home for our family. Rachel is extremely knowledgeable, approachable and no one will live up to the standard she has set. If we look at selling we wouldn't consider going to anyone else.

Rachel helped me to purchase my new home and I was pleased with all aspects of the service she provided. She listened to my list of requirements for my new home and showed me several pointing out how they matched what I was looking for and providing me with ideas and options that could work for my circumstances. She then showed me a property which matched my list almost entirely and her local knowledge meant that she could show me around the area providing information on current and future roads, shops etc. I believe that Rachel went above and beyond her duties to me. She not only helped me throughout the process, relieving as much of the stress as possible, but she has also kept in touch with me since, checking in to see that I am settling in and seeing if she can help in any way. I would recommend Rachel to anyone looking to buy or sell their homes. You won’t be disappointed.
Lyn Gowthorpe
Rachel stood out from all other Real Estate agents due to her professionalism, passion to sell the property and wealth of knowledge of the area. Rachel’s work ethic is second to none and we received thorough reports from all open homes that were conducted by her and her team. Rachel went above and beyond to sell the property, including walk through video footage , which certainly was a standout and definitely helped the process. Rachel’s passion and energy to ensure success was much appreciated , and I would thoroughly recommend her to all family and friends. Thank you Rachel for making the selling of our house a very simple and non stressful process.

We would like to congratulate the company on the sale of our property in Valley Road. The handling of the sale and all the work leading up to it was done by Rachel Griffiths who we cannot congratulate enough for the way she handled everything. Even to the extent that our lawyer stated she had never had a sales agent so organised and was a delight to work with. Rachel has also helped in finding us another property in Papamoa. Rachel has talked us through all the “twists and turns” of selling and buying, after being in this house for nearly 40 years. So we accordingly would recommend Rachel to any prospective clients who are thinking of selling.
Irene and Geoff Nicholson
Many thanks to Rachel for getting the purchase of our house over the line! It was a pleasure to have her working with us to find the right property.
David & Diane
Rachel was excellent to deal with, honest, informative and kept us up to date. Highly recommend.
Dave & Tara
Rachel, thank you so much for your help and guidance in the crazy world of buying, selling and moving to a new area. So grateful.
Ewan and Anna
Rachel Griffiths has been a personal friend of ours for 18+ years, so entrusting her with the sale of our first home was not a difficult decision, though we did have reservations that it might affect our friendship. Rachel assured us it would not and oh how right she was. Rachel was extremely professional, her regular contact kept us well informed. Taking the property to Auction was a rewarding experience and Rachel and the Harcourts team delivered a result on the day - sold under the hammer. We were absolutely thrilled with the result. We are extremely grateful to Rachel for her honest, open, clear communication and her knowledge and guidance throughout the whole sale process, and our friendship is still very much intact!
Denise and Andrew
We asked 4 land agents to pitch to sell our house. Rachel gave an in depth informative package which impressed us in particular with the detail of comparing our house with others in the area. Included were positive references from other clients. The auctioneers manner, ability and knowledge complemented Rachel's professional ability.

LOOKING TO SELL YOUR HOME? Then your best opportunity for a successful sale is to engage Rachel Griffiths of Harcourts Papamoa. Rachel recently handled the marketing of our property which concluded with a fantastic auction result. We selected Rachel after discussing the marketing of our property with four real estate agents. Rachel presented her proposal in a professional and detailed way. She made strong suggestions on the way she would promote the property and had a sound knowledge of property sales in the area. The course of action was very detailed and her promise to keep us informed was kept with first class communication. She was an excellent listener and willingly discussed suggestions, thoughts and concerns giving honest feedback and modifying her approach where necessary. Covid struck at the end of the second week of the promotion and the difficulties it created did not deter her from reactivating the marketing campaign and working constructively towards a sale. Throughout the campaign she presented herself in a most professional manner. We were very impressed with her outstanding ability to “read the market.” It was clear from the first meeting with Rachel that she was working 100% for her clients and her prediction f an auction result well above RV was realised. We are super confident that she will provide the same superb service for you!!
Margaret & Les
We connected with Rachel straight away, her efficiency, knowledge and professionalism was second to none, we would have no hesitation in using her again or recommending to friends and family.

I had 2 weeks to sell my place and Rachel got it done. She went beyond selling the house and got locks put in to make me feel safer. Excellent service.

Hard working and dedicated team. Provided updates in a timely manner.
Thomas & Gwendolyn
If anyone ever asks us why anyone needs an agent… I only have a two word answer: Rachel Griffiths! We are indebted to Rachel, our agent, for her enthusiasm, friendship, support (we felt supported every step of the way) and advice. We do not know where to start with all the good things Rachel has done for us in selling our home within a week… yes within a week!! Rachel was professional and accommodating from the start, always available, always listening and above all always approachable, open with honest and accurate information – being an excellent communicator during the whole process. Rachel’s technical knowledge of selling and buying property still amazes me. The biggest thing that we will remember is how Rachel made selling a property for the first time comfortable and not as intimidating or overwhelming as we thought it would be. THANK YOU Rachel!!
MJ & Sarah
My wife and I have purchased and sold numerous properties over the last twenty years and have dealt with many real estate professionals overt his time, experiencing a very varied level of engagement and professionalism, with some experiences being well below the level purchasers or sellers expect. We recently listed our property with Rachel and immediately the difference was noted by both my wife and I, the level of professionalism and absolute determination to achieve our desired outcome from Rachel was exceptional. This was also enforced by the superb support from Harcourts management. I believe that clarity of communication in all sales transactions is the most important skill and discipline to hold, which Rachel exceeded in all aspects, both my wife and I felt Rachel handled our sale with utmost integrity and honesty whilst handing a complicated transaction. Rachels ability to always look for a “solution” was unparalleled, and her ability to be able to negotiate that solution with the prospective purchaser was superb. I would like to reiterate that, follow up, communication and great negotiation skills with integrity is what Rachel has to an enviable level and is the key to a great agent. Both my wife and I would have no hesitation recommending Rachel to prospective buyers or sellers and I would be more than happy to reiterate this if you with to contact me directly.

When meeting with prospective Agents to market our much-loved family home, we found Rachel to be professional and passionate and were left with little doubt we could work well together. Our brief to Rachel was two-fold, to achieve a certain price and sell within a certain timeframe. Rachel diligently produced our targeted marketing, managed our open homes and worked hard behind the scenes, ultimately presenting us with a three-way multi-offer. Rachel helped us unravel these offers and navigate counter-offers, which culminated in our property being sold within three and a half weeks of listing. We achieved the price and timeframe we asked for – we couldn’t have hoped for anything more. we highly recommend Rachel for any and all real estate needs and wouldn’t hesitate to engage her again in the future should the need arise.
Aaron & Angela
We were very happy with the service provided by Rachel Griffiths as she assisted us with researching and ultimately buying our new home in Papamoa. Her local knowledge and enthusiasm for the area were invaluable. She understood what we needed and found properties which met our criteria. She was totally trustworthy and we were confident that we were in good hands as she guided us through the nerve-wracking process of buying by phone at Auction.

To future house buyers – I would like to advise you, in your own best interests, to use the services of real estate agent Rachel Griffiths. I have bought and sold houses since 1987, 15 in total, mainly in the Auckland market. In July 2017 I travelled to the Bay of Plenty looking for a new start in a new part of NZ and was lucky enough to meet Rachel and over the next seven weeks she went “above the call of duty” as we say in the military (I’m ex-RNAF) in showing me not only Harcourts listings but any property I wanted to view, she arranged it all and made the process for someone who was not a local so much easier. She has many years experience in this profession covering all areas and great overall knowledge of buying and selling that not all agents have. I’m happy to say she found me a house that ticked all my boxes and while waiting for my furniture to arrive from Auckland and with nothing to sleep on, even came and loaned me her air mattress for the weekend so I could enjoy my new home. I have used the services of many agents over the years and in my book Rachel is one of the best I have used, buyers, relax and look no further….You have found your agent. Happy hunting.
We listed our house in Papamoa with Rachel Griffiths and were very happy with her friendly and professional manner. Our property was sold within two weeks. We found she made the whole process as easy as she could, keeping us informed at all times. We would recommend Rachel if you are looking for an agent to sell or purchase a property.
Doreen & Claude
Rachel is an outstanding agent who mixes a lovely sense of humour, property experience, and solid client advice. She supported me through a property search and an Auction purchase in Papamoa. I couldn't be happier. Rachel is highly recommended !!
Rachel is very professional and dedicated to her clients and Harcourts. She has many years of experience and there is nothing she will not do to make the whole process of selling ones home as stress free as possible and achieving the absolute best result possible. I have bought and sold a home with Rachel and I wholeheartedly recommend her as pleasant, polite and trust worthy Real Estate Agent. She is a valuable asset to the Harcourts Papamoa team. Way to go Rachel!
Rachel helped me to sell my Dad's home which was an extremely emotional time for me. At all times Rachel was competent, efficient and knowledgeable but she remained thoughtful, considerate and kind throughout the process. Nothing was a concern, she is all about solutions and not problems. Her cheerful manner made the whole experience a lot more enjoyable than it could have been. I am extremely grateful to her for her compassion and understanding during a very sensitive time.
Rachel was so easy to connect with right from our first meeting. She spent time with us and keep us updated and although we missed out on that property she found us another one when we’d just about given up hope in this crazy market! Rachel is kind, compassionate, honest, professional and nothing is too much of trouble for her. We honestly loved working with her and we are so grateful for how easy she made everything for us!
Safe Pair Of Hands We recently used Rachel's supportive and knowledgeable skills to buy our new home. Rachel pre-empted our questions and addressed any concerns along the way. Her constant communication and kindness ensured we were never left in the dark. We have no hesitation in fully endorsing Rachel as an excellent estate agent.
Sarah Harris
Professional and Great Communication Recently my brother and I sold our parents home in an estate sale. I found Rachel very professional and approachable in all respects before, during and after the marketing campaign. Rachel has excellent communication skills and worked very hard to achieve a result we were extremely happy with.
Annette Skinner
I was very apprehensive and nervous about selling my first home but I needn't have been. From the very start Rachel was professional and amazing to deal with. She answered all my questions along the way and was extremely detailed when going through the paperwork. She explained the selling and moving process well so there were no hidden surprises and she also ensured me that I was her top priority and that she would go the extra mile to ensure my home would sell before or on auction day. I have to say Rachel was true to her word and my house sold for top dollar in less than a week. Rachel validated that she had my best interests at heart and there was absolutely no pressure to accept. In the end I was amazed by the outcome. Rachel was true to her word in everything she told me from start to finish including negotiating the settlement date that needed to coincide with the end of the school year so there was minimum disruption for my children. I was so happy with her service that I used Rachel for a second time when I sold my next house and once again she was professional and amazing to deal with. My next house also sold pre-auction and within a week which was absolutely amazing! I would highly recommend Rachel to anyone who is in need of a real estate agent. She was truly professional, trust worthy, open and honest throughout the entire process.

I recently sold my house (162 The Boulevard) through Harcourts and throughout the process, Rachel Griffiths was fantastic to deal with. Rachel was professional, knowledgeable, helpful and I fully recommend her.
Rachel was helpful, professional and informative throughout the process. She made the process feel like it was a partnership between myself and Harcourts more than a hired consultant.

Our experience with Rachel Griffiths from Harcourts Papamoa was outstanding. Rachel was extremely friendly, highly professional and kept us both well informed at every step of the process. She went above and beyond, presenting us with two excellent offers on our first property and a stunning 3-way multi-offer within six days of listing our second property. We would not hesitate to recommend Rachel to anyone thinking of selling their home. We could not be happier with the outcome of utilising her as our agent.
Roimata and Arnie Bryans
Rachel was amazing at selling my property at 32B Harrisfield Drive. She put a plan into place that I felt comfortable with and showed huge respect for the tenants. She was amazing at communicating and encouraged me to go with what I wanted. I can’t speak highly enough of her work ethic, her passion for getting the best deal possible, her professional attitude and her heart for people. She is one to keep around for a long time, you are lucky to have her on your team.
Glenda Gilgren – Seller of 32B Harrisfield Drive
Things happened really quickly so there was a lot to process in a short period of time. Rachel’s handling of things and achieving a positive outcome was very professional and efficient and caring. We would absolutely engage her services again in the future if the need arose. Thanks Rachel!
