Kate Crean

Embracing the significant emotional journey of buying or selling a home, I'm here to guide you through every step with empathy, clarity, and expert knowledge. My transition from a career in insurance, banking, and client relations has endowed me with the skills to manage stressful situations gracefully, negotiate fiercely on your behalf, and demystify the complexities of real estate transactions. Relocating to Taranaki has deepened my appreciation for the region, motivating me to help others discover its charm. I'm committed to creating lasting relationships with my clients, turning transactions into memorable experiences. Let's start your next adventure over a coffee - my treat.


With a passion for property and a background in insurance, banking, and client relations, I offer a unique blend of empathy, negotiation prowess, and clear communication to the real estate process. Having moved from Auckland to Taranaki, I understand the emotional and logistical complexities of relocating and am dedicated to making your real estate journey as smooth and stress-free as possible. My goal is to not only assist you in finding or selling your home but also to build a lasting relationship that extends beyond a single transaction. Whether you’re stepping into a new adventure or exploring the beauty of Taranaki, I’m here to support you every step of the way.

About Kate

Buying a new home or selling the home that you have created so many memories in can be kind of a big deal! Its exciting, fun, daunting and can even be a little sad. The whole process can seem overwhelming! My job is to be there to support you through it all. To be a listening ear, a trusted source of information and friend guiding you through what can be a life changing experience.

I chose this profession not only because I have always loved property, but because I thrive on providing an amazing experience for my clients. There is a thrill that comes along with knowing you have helped someone step into their next adventure in life.

Coming from a background in insurance, banking and client relations, I have the experience and confidence in dealing with stressful or high-pressure situations with ease. A large portion of my career to date has involved the ability to negotiate and get the best outcome possible for my clients, it’s what I love to do. You can trust me to take care of the nitty-gritty fine print and explain it to you in a way that is clear, concise and in your terms. Sleep easy knowing that I’ve got it all covered! All you need to do is dream about the next step for you and your whanau.

Originally from Auckland (the wild west) my family and I took the leap in 2017, relocating from big-city life to a quiet rural lifestyle here in Taranaki. Drawn to the beautiful scenery, the smell of the sea, an easier pace of life and plenty of yummy brunch options - I could not imagine a better place for my two girls to grow up. I’m motivated beyond measure to show others the corners of this stunning province that we have so much love for!

The Real Estate industry is my calling. My goal will always be to build relationships with my clients that last beyond a single transaction. Let’s chat over a coffee, you don’t have to ask me twice - give me a call or flick me a text - the coffee is on me.
