Bayleys Taupo

Bayleys Taupo is a full service agency that specialises in residential sales, commercial and industrial sales and leasing, business sales and country and lifestyle sales.

Established in 1963, Dorothy Westerman opened a real estate office in Taupo, when the streets were pumice, the town comprised a few shops and the renowned Lake Hotel and the surroundings hills were covered in brightly coloured broom. Dorothy and her husband Paul had made the journey from Hawkes Bay to settle in Taupo, where Paul started as a builder and Dorothy was full time at home looking after their nine children. 

Dorothy’s early hobby was to clear sections, place a private ‘For Sale’ sign and sell the land to visiting fishermen or bach owners. It was this pioneering sense of enterprise that quickly developed into a full time job and ultimately the thriving real estate business that continues to this very day.

Having taken the family business to fresh heights, Dorothy’s twin daughters Elaine and Yvonne recognised that the market was changing rapidly and that a wider marketing reach was required and so the decision was made in 2002 to align the family business under the Bayleys Real Estate brand with a further office established in Turangi in 2006, thus fulfilling Dorothy’s remarkable vision from some fifty years earlier.
