After nearly a decade in the real estate industry, she knows that developing trust through a strong working relationship with her vendors is essential for a successful outcome.

Detail-oriented, proactive and considered, she is able to develop a strategy that is unique for each of her clients. As her client’s strongest advocate, she wants them to feel protected, educated and in control throughout the entire process, and she believes that if they have a better understanding, it can lessen the stress that selling and buying property can create. Repeat clients, as well as numerous referrals, are testament to Sophie’s exceptional work ethic, integrity, commitment and dedication, as well as her determination to achieve the best result possible. Sophie’s in-depth knowledge of Hawke’s Bay was cultivated by raising her own family of three boys here, providing her with insight into the changing needs of families throughout their different life stages. When not helping clients achieve their property goals, Sophie can be found out and about with family and friends, walking her two dogs and experiencing all the great things Hawke’s Bay has to offer.
Suppose you're looking for the iconic waterfront kiwi bach- In that case, I have the perfect one for you.
This well-appointed classic kiwi beach house with a fabulous beach immediately in front, is one of New Zealand's best-kept secrets; Mangakuri Beach in Central Hawke's Bay. It's been 36 years since this property has been on the market when first purchased as bare land.
Mangakuri is a small, close-knit settlement established from beachfront land that was part of the original Mangakuri Station many years ago. Most of the 25 houses on the beach have been in the same families for generations; they rarely come to the market. 231 Williams Rd is tucked away at the end of a private road and set on a generous 2838 sq m section.
The hub of the bach is the large and social open-plan kitchen, dining and living areas, ideal for bringing family and friends together. This well-built bach offers four generous double bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a separate laundry. There is also a large rumpus room that can accommodate eight people.
All the living areas and bedrooms have sliding doors opening to the elevated views directly out to sea, with plenty of outdoor living and space for the children and dogs to run around. There is plenty of room for camping and parking for those extra guests.
Prepare the day's catch in the large fishing bay - essential for the keen fisherman or diver. Adjacent to this is a fantastic, covered entertainment area, the perfect spot for dining with family and friends.
Situated 53 kms from Havelock North and 42 kms from Waipawa, this fabulous beach is fantastic for surfing, diving, and fishing, and has excellent rock pools that are great for the children at low tide.
A one-time opportunity for someone to own their slice of New Zealand coastal paradise, create some magical family holiday memories and secure for generations to follow.
