Since starting in Real Estate Penny Lyons has achieved in the National Awards and under top 10 with NZ Sothebys International Realty. After being involved in sales for over 25 years and receiving these coveted awards, most of her business comes from referrals; her highest accolade. Penny’s bespoke marketing initiatives and outstanding customer service have garnered her outstanding reviews. Indeed, time and again she proves herself to be in a class of her own.

A well known local resident and successful business woman in the Taupo community, Penny enjoyed a sales and management career spanning 20 years at one of New Zealand’s top radio offices in the country. An active member of the Taupo Business Community for over 20 years, Penny has been involved in the Taupo Business Chamber, Enterprise Great Lake Taupo, Town Centre Taupo and the 100% Lake Taupo Charitable Trust.

Many times over Penny’s love for the Taupo community has been demonstrated as she takes every opportunity to improve, enhance and nurture it. This depth of experience and commitment translates into a unique combination of leadership skills, extensive sales experience, marketing expertise and a love and knowledge of the local community which Penny demonstrates at every level.

Trust and honesty underpin every client relationship and are a source of great pride. This is reflected in how Penny values client relationships and the outstanding standard of client care and the sense of trust and honesty she builds with her clients and the community. Keeping her word is paramount as Penny brings an exceptional commitment to customer service to her role as a selling member of Sotheby’s International Realty which she was instrumental in bringing to Taupo.

Over the past 20 years, the sales landscape has changed dramatically and Penny has embraced the changes, meeting all challenges head on and adopting fresh approaches whenever necessary. However, whatever the changes, challenges and fresh approaches, one thing remains unchanged and that’s Penny’s uncompromising commitment to her clients and her unassailable belief in trust and honesty in all her interactions.
