Team Griffiths Professionals (1)


We are a unique couple in real estate with a vast and varied experience in real estate. There are likely no other real estate salespeople in the Bay of Plenty that can boast the variety and experience of the two of us, and this is “Our Point of Difference".

We are dedicated to providing you as a seller or a buyer a hassle-free real estate experience to enable you to move onto the next phase of your life.

We are passionate about the Bay of Plenty, particularly Mt Maunganui – our PARADISE! Our enthusiasm and love of the region is contagious and we have encouraged many out-of-town visitors to invest here.

I can see why you are part of a team called the Professionals, it was a very Professional way you went about the sale of Wyn’s house, no problems at all and a very quick hassle free sale.

"Selling the house of a beloved parent is a very hard thing to do but Bernadette and Owen's approach was both sensitive and businesslike, making the process easier.  The marketing was excellent and resulted in a quick sale at a very good price. My parents would have been very proud".

Rob & Jo

"Bernadette is very friendly and open she was very helpful and explained the process well, honest and not pushy. She was lovely to deal with".


I would like to thank Bernadette for her wonderful service selling our dad’s unit. Every week she kept us up to date with her open home results plus all the online interest. Bernadette was a pleasure to deal with, easy to talk to and I would thoroughly recommend her to anyone contemplating selling a home. 


Bernadette and Owen have been fantastic throughout the entire process of buying our property. Professional and friendly throughout, with great knowledge and transparency, they have helped us a lot and we have felt comfortable dealing with them.

Nothing was too much trouble for Bernadette.   100% effort throughout the sale process.   Always kept us informed of how things were going and very considerate and time conscious with all the parties involved in our mum’s property sale.  Strongly recommend this lovely lady for anyone looking for an agent to market/sell their home. 

Linda Gair 

Not often or always, can buyers and/or sellers - of which I both subscribe to - be able to say that they had a stress-free and informed experience... I have only ever used the 'Team Griffiths' service and experience.  There is a 'Locale' and 'Local Magic' to this team in the 'Bays' area of knowing, that works its magic for all parties, and I'm very willing to promote the Team Griffiths Team for their wide-ranging experience and services.
