Neale Parkinson

Residential and Lifestyle Sales

Neale Parkinson has successfully been marketing and selling property exclusively in Taranaki since 1987. Through his career which has encompassed residential, lifestyle and subdivision sales as well as management and more latterly ownership, Neale has been a stellar performer and recipient of national awards.




We asked Neale Parkinson of Bayleys Taranaki to sell our rental property in New Plymouth. As we live elsewhere we thought we would have a lot of work to do and would have to spend time in New Plymouth during the sales process. However, Neale took charge and arranged everything to ensure the house was in top condition before marketing started, including arranging quotes, evaluating contractors, and overseeing the work. To say Neale, and not forgetting his assistant Sarah, went above and beyond throughout the sales process really does not do justice to the huge effort they put in, their professional approach at all times, and their friendly and unflustered manner. They made the whole process as easy and stress-free for us as it could possibly be. We have no hesitation in recommending Neale and Sarah to anyone wanting a knowledgeable, experienced, professional, friendly and trustworthy real estate team to sell their property.

We were referred to Neale by a friend who suggested that we sell our house with Bayleys. From our initial meeting and discussions, Neale was fantastic to deal with & kept us regularly updated. My wife and I particularly appreciated his professional manner and honesty. We have no hesitation in recommending Neale to anybody looking for a knowledgeable & trustworthy agent, very capable of achieving results. Thank you, Neale (and his assistant Sarah) for selling our property.

I recently sold a property with Neale Parkinson. I have been a Real Estate Agent myself for 26 years in another city, so I have an idea of what I should expect from a fellow salesperson. I have a serious health issue, and my situation was very emotional and tough. Neale exemplifies the core values one would want and hope for when selling a property particularly when you need local knowledge, competence, honesty and time to process. He was compassionate, thorough, not pushy and very informative. I found him the perfect agent in every way. I have recommended him to others already and have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone who reads this testimony. In my quarter of a century in the Real Estate Industry I have met a huge amount of Real Estate Salespeople - I dont believe you will find someone better that Neale! Thank Neale for such a great result!

Neale Parkinson was a pleasure to deal with. He has a calm, professional manner and kept us totally informed throughout our busy month of marketing. The work behind the scenes that Neale and Sarah do is very thorough and as vendors we appreciated their reporting and communication. Thanks Neale for achieving a great result in the sale of our property.

Great job Neale. Thank you so much. We could not have been happier with the outcome of the recent sale of our parents home. Throughout the whole campaign your communication was excellent and we very much appreciated the professionalism you showed during the entire process. Your team did a great job with the marketing and everything went according to plan. You stepped us through the process quietly and calmly, showing great respect and understanding that this was a difficult time for us. We loved the serendipity that over 30 years ago you sold Mum and Dad the house and now they have passed you have just sold it again for us. It has been an absolute pleasure working with you and your staff.

To put my home and lifestyle on the open market for sale, was a monumental decision. However the decision to select an agent, was an easy one. Working with Neale Parkinson of Bayleys, to plan a suitable marketing campaign, select dates and viewing options and of course sale methods, was made by Neale, a very easy and pleasant undertaking. Neales manner, kind nature and experience, I found all appealing. His consideration to my work demands, made the process of invited open homes, very suitable for the property and seemed to work well for all concerned. It allowed prospective views their privacy, to enjoy mostly individual attention from Neale, thus retaining the private setting here, at this idyllic property. The decisions to sell by Auction, proved the right one. A well attended event. A happy outcome, conducted by Steven Shale of Hamilton. A vibrant Auctioneer. Both true gentlemen. Indeed this is a note of reference, but its also a very special thank you to Neale. Your experience and guidance through the whole sale process, has been a pleasure.

Working with Neale was a great experience all round. He provided a very professional service and answered all my questions. I was a little worried as we live overseas with a 5-hour time difference but all was handled very smoothly. Best of all Neale secured a buyer within the 1st week of the house going on the market, at a great price! I would highly recommend Neale to anyone.

Thanks again for doing such a great job selling 77 Young Street in testing market conditions. As Auckland vendors, we needed someone who understood the market and had the experience to execute the appropriate sales campaign whilst maintaining realistic expectations. We were impressed with the level of trust you were able to build in such a short time and your communication throughout the process was comprehensive and professional. Finally, you got the result we wanted. Thanks again!

We have lived in our New Plymouth home for the past 5 years. We have previously bought and sold a number of properties but have never been served so well as to freely offer this letter of recommendation. Neale Parkinson from Bayleys New Plymouth was absolutely outstanding in all our dealings with him. Communication was a highlight Neale actually listened to us and acted on our instructions. Neale offered his advice and never forced his opinion. His professionalism stood him apart from his peers. We as vendors, were part of the process from beginning to end but ultimately it was Neales skilled negotiating that closed the deal. The final compliment must be that the purchasers of our home then also used Neale to assist with the sale of their home to contact Neale and know that you will be well served.

We dealt with Neale for the successful sale of a house by auction. He was thorough and efficient and went above and beyond helping us with builders and insulation reports and also helping prospective buyers get any information so that all eventualities were covered and people knew what they were bidding for. He was sensitive and respective in his dealings with the tenant ensuring that there were no issues with open homes and other viewings. We would always use Neale as a real estate agent and recommend him to everyone.

My parents spoke very highly of Neale who they had previously employed for their property transactions. So when mum died it was an easy decision for the family to once again utilize his services. Due to his market knowledge, a targeted marketing campaign, his ongoing open and clear communication and ability to find multiple bidders for the auction, we achieved a result that far exceeded our best expectations. I would unreservedly recommend Neale.

Don Stevens


I cannot speak more highly of the professional service we received from Neale Parkinson at Bayleys. He carefully explained marketing strategies and costs. We agreed to a marketing plan which ensured the property was shown at its best. Neale kept us fully informed as agreed. Incredibly our property sold following the first open day. We definitely recommend Bayleys and Neale to anyone wishing to sell their property in the future.
