Rita Lynch’s presence in the Napier real estate market is best illustrated by her results prior to joining Sotheby’s International Realty. Achieving top three status within the broader Hawke’s Bay Tremains team over five consecutive years and being awarded Top Salesperson in 2012/2013, is a reflection of Rita’s position as a leading sales person in the Hawke’s Bay market, and proof of the vigour and absolute passion she has for real estate.

Born and raised in Napier, Rita has worked in the region for most of her life. After a rewarding nine year career at Tremains, and with an extensive knowledge of the local market, Rita has become a trusted and well respected name in real estate. A move to New Zealand Sotheby’s International Realty was a logical progression for Rita who is looking forward to the new challenge of working as a part of a small professional team and the ability to utilise the national and global marketing channels that the brand offers. Rita has a particular focus on Taradale, Greenmeadows and Poraiti areas and sees the extensive reach of NZ Sotheby’s as a fabulous opportunity to market her clients’ properties to the significant number of out of town buyers who are interested in the region.

Throughout her sales career Rita is proud to have built a reputation for outstanding service to her clients, through her honesty, work ethic, attention to detail and determination to achieve the very best results. Her repeat business and referrals speak volumes about Rita as a sales professional. Together with the benefits of the Sotheby’s International Realty brand, you can be assured you will be in the very best hands.


"Rita is an excellent agent and a lovely lady; she guided me through the purchase process and clearly explained the rules and legalities."
- A Aaron

“Recently my wife and I sought to list our house in Taradale. We did some due diligence around our area and spoke to several neighbours who had recently bought their house. It soon became obvious that one agent had been particularly success...ful in our area and was highly regarded by local people for her service and results. So without further hesitation we invited Rita Lynch to our home for an appraisal and discussion about next steps.

Our first meeting took place on a Sunday night and we were happy to call Rita the next morning and sign up with her. Her professionalism, knowledge of the local market, passion for our property and clear commitment to serving our interests put us at ease with the difficult task of selling our home.

Within twenty four hours we had an offer and interested parties looking to make a backup offer. Although Rita had mentioned she had a client list and would bring interested parties through the very next day, I took all this with a grain of salt and thought, at least she’s keen, let’s just see what happens. However the facts speak for themselves, we signed our conditional offer on the first day of the house being on the market and it went unconditional soon afterwards.

Rita was helpful, readily in contact, informative and clearly working in our best interests. I have no hesitation in commending her work ethic, professionalism and service and would recommend her to anyone wishing to sell their property.”

“Rita did a great job with the sale of our property in Oaklands - we would highly recommend her services to any potential seller.”
- N and A Weber

“My wife and I recently had a second opportunity to use Rita Lynch as a salesperson. Rita is the consummate professional, demonstrating honesty, integrity and a real enthusiasm for getting the job done. She listens to what the vendor wants achieve, adds her in-depth knowledge of real estate and the property market and then formulates a strategy to realise the sale. Rita has excellent communication skills and does not hesitate to go above and beyond what is normally expected. She is proactive, and had our trust at all times. My wife and I would not hesitate to use Rita again, or recommend her to family and friends."

“We highly recommend Rita Lynch. In what was a rather stressful situation for us trying to sell our family home while living overseas, we found Rita to be extremely helpful and reassuring. She was excellent in her feed-back and information ...and Rita got us a very quick sale. We just wish we had listed with her in the beginning and not with a competitors company. We found Rita did more in the 10 days that our home was listed with her than the previous company did in three months. She kept us in the loop and always seemed happy to answer any questions we had. Great job Rita, well done! We'll certainly recommend you to family and friends!”
- S & R Kerr

"We needed to sell our home of 17 years. After discussing our intentions, property and aspirations with Rita, she undertook an assessment the following day. True to her commitment, everything happened in a timely and professional manner up t...o and during the sales process. Our pride and joy was marketed beautifully. Congratulations Rita Lynch! We found her personable, professional and on the ball. What a lovely person. We have no hesitation in referring her to our friends and acquaintances if they are buying or selling." - M & D Jermyn, Taradale

"This is just a note to assure you of the excellent service we received from Rita Lynch when we sold our house in February. Rita, whom I had known for a number of years, I felt had the personality and drive to sell our house and I was quite corre...ct. She was professional, open to suggestions and we were not surprised when our house sold with the result we were hoping for." - P & J Barker, Taradale
