Francine brings intimate local expertise and international experience to the Waiheke property market.

Through an extraordinary 15 year career previously as a professional dancer, her real estate business is marked by qualities of determination, energy and an unrivalled work ethic.

Francine’s background in selling premium New Zealand wines eventually led her to Waiheke Island where she developed her strong, personal real estate brand known for consistent and diverse sales and knowledge of the north side of the island, especially Palm Beach near coastal, valleys and surrounds. Through her direct experience and observation in most of the successful local island real estate franchises as well as luxury boutique brands in Auckland she continues to believe in a strong, effective and well managed personal database approach to delivering outstanding results for her clients. With $70,000,000 worth of north-side sales achieved, combined with a proven record of negotiation through market cycles she engenders high trust, connection and confidence in repeat clients and customers.


Francine ran an impeccable and highly successful campaign to sell our home in Palm Beach. From start to finish we received outstanding communication, excellent guidance on strategy (led by the kind of instinct you are born with and cannot learn) ...and generosity beyond the call of duty. Witnessing the dedication she has to doing her job in the best possible way was truly inspiring. I always felt I was in the best hands and very grateful that she was the woman we had chosen to get the job done. An outstanding campaign with beyond exceptional results. I wholeheartedly and highly recommend Francine to anyone.

For an average salesperson this market is challenging, for Francine it is an opportunity to show her superior skills, the sales results speak for themselves.

Francine sold our house for a price we were extremely happy with. She is a fabulous salesperson- hard-working, knowledgeable and connected and the icing on the cake is her warm and fun personality. We loved working with her.

''It was a pleasure working with Francine Sweet on the sale of our property on Waiheke Island. Francine's tireless professional service and commitment was second to none.
Her drive, attention to detail and going the extra mile to obtain info...rmation for both parties gave her the X factor that few people have. It made her stand out from many of the other agents I have dealt with over the years.
I will undoubtedly recommend her to friends and family and I would like to pass on my thanks to her for doing such a great job''

"My wife & I had been considering selling our Waiheke Island home, but held back from facing up to finding a suitable agent, the appraisal, the cost of marketing and the disruption of  what could be a long sales campaign. By chance, we w...ere contacted by Francine Sweet. We were amazed with her dedication, energy and results. Using her database and personal contacts alone, she achieved a four party multi offer on our property over a 3-4 week period resulting in a successful sale. Her hard work and attention to detail combined with honest and effective negotiation means we can thoroughly recommend her services." - Noel Woodford
