Licensee Salesperson, Ray White City Apartments
Real estate is much more than a profession to me – it’s also a passion. As the owner of a number of investment properties, most of which are apartments, I know how to build successful portfolios, where to find the best buys, and, when the time comes to sell, how to get a premium price.
I embarked on my career in property in 2002, and three years later made the decision to specialise in inner city apartments. Since then I’ve frequently been recognised as one of Auckland City’s top performers, achieving a number of record sales and consistently generating fantastic outcomes for the clients I’ve partnered with.
Because I’m an apartment owner myself I understand the nuances of property investment – the complex emotions involved and the significance of every decision you reach. That’s why I go out of my way to provide the knowledge, insights and advice my clients need to make smart, informed decisions.
Being a part of Team Yurak, where I’m fortunate enough to work in partnership with my daughter, Michelle, we provide an extremely personal service; one where communication is paramount and every approach is individually tailored to each client’s specific needs. We have both been recognised as top performing ‘Premier' and 'Elite' Members since joining Ray White City Apartments.
If you’d like to work alongside a real estate professional who is friendly and forthright, highly motivated and committed to helping you achieve the best possible results, then I’d love to talk!

We asked Judi and Michelle to market our apartment and are delighted with the decision. They embarked upon a very thorough and professional programme for the three weeks of the campaign, culminating in a very competitive auction.

Both Judi and Michelle were great, well organised, professional, knowledgeable and reliable
We were impressed with the no nonsense, informed approach taken by Team Yurak when we purchased our apartment, so when we decided to market our property we went straight to them. They picked the market perfectly, stuck with their appraisal and got us what we wanted in a timely fashion. Highly recommended, they know their market.

My wife and I were very satisfied indeed with the way Judi and Michelle found a buyer for our apartment, and at a price higher than other agents were suggesting. Well done and many thanks

Michelle and Judi are warm friendly people that look to assist you from the outset. There is no desperation in their approach - they just want to help
I have purchased and sold apartments through Judi and Michelle Yurak over the last year (and through Judi prior to that). They are both extremely knowledgeable about the Auckland apartment market in general and have in depth knowledge of many of the inner city apartment buildings. I have found them both to be very efficient and helpful, Judi is always willing to meet at apartments and Michelle is very prompt and accurate with the paperwork. Judi recently achieved a record price for me when I sold an apartment. I would have no hesitation in recommending Judi and Michelle as agents and it’s been a genuine pleasure dealing with them both.
Judi and Michelle Yurak are not just knowledgeable and enthusiastic specialists in apartment sales, they are open and friendly people and great to work with. Their marketing plan for selling our apartment was well thought out, focused and good value, and they went beyond what we could have expected to create a very attractive and effective marketing package. Following the open days they contacted everyone who had viewed the apartment, and we received a detailed report summarising the feedback from potential buyers. They were organised, thorough, practical in their approach, prompt in responding to any queries we had, always professional but totally accessible. We have now bought and sold an apartment through Judi and Michelle and thoroughly recommend them.

“I recently bought my apartment through Ray White and had the pleasure of working with Judi and Michelle Yurak. These two are fantastic, they’re super organised, proactive and definitely know their stuff! They were always available to offer assistance, support and give advice whenever I asked which made the entire buying process that much easier. I would recommend these two ladies….they’re brilliant!”
Judi & Michelle were fantastic. I have never sold a property before and was based in Australia so at the beginning I was slightly concerned about the remote handling of the transaction. After initially speaking with Judi and Michelle, my concerns were put at ease and they took care of my every need. I was even in Asia travelling when the sale commenced and this was not even a bother. I was kept up to date on a need to know basis meaning I was only contacted when needed. The price offered met all expectations and this allowed for an easy and quick sale. I would highly recommend working with Judi & Michelle, whether dealing in person or from abroad, the job gets done and gets done well!
"Judi and Michelle recently sold an apartment for me. Fantastic service from both of them, they were super hard working and very efficient. They kept me in touch all the way, chased up every lead and helped me to achieve a top price. I'm very happy to recommend them"
"My Wife and I were based in the UK and we were trying to sort out accommodation for our emigration to NZ. "Team Yurak" was immensely supportive and helpful during this process, which otherwise would have been difficult and stressful, especially from 12,000 miles away. Michelle and Judi guided us through the process, gave advice and support throughout and in the end gave us a really excellent outcome. We are well on our way to getting settled in NZ and Michelle and Judi have been vital to the success of our move. Thank you both very much!"

"As an oversea seller, I communicated with Judi through telephone and email. The first impression she gave me was her confidence in selling my apartment in Auckland CBD. In the course of marketing the property she was swift in answering queries I put to her, thanks to her capable daughter, Michelle who was very efficient in dealing with the correspondences. I am very satisfied with Judi and Michelle. The outcome of the sale showed that my impression was correct and I would recommend them to my friends in future". Best wishes to you both. 30th October 2013

"I hail from New Zealand and live on the Gold Coast Qld. Australia. I had a small unit in the heart of Auckland City that I was considering selling and in November 2012 I received a phone call from Michelle and Judi Yurak asking me if I wanted to sell. I made the decision to do it and handed the responsibility to them. Their attention to detail is exceptional and within a few days I knew that I could depend on these two woman completely... I literally was able to forget about the selling of my unit and I just did whatever they asked me to at any given time. My unit was sold within the month... They are trustworthy, friendly, go beyond the 'call of duty'... and incredible sales people. What more could you want? Thanks guys.
Judi and Michelle are a great team. They have very good knowledge of Auckland city apartments and they gave a professional pinion for marketing and pricing. They put in plenty of effort to sell my property so I could achieve the best result.
'Judi Yurak sold a family apartment for us in March 2012. Matt was recommended to us by another family member and I had previous dealings with her. Judi priced the apartment realistically and did not over-price it in order to secure the listing. I found Judi very knowledgeable, efficient, hard-working and highly professional. I am happy to recommend her as an apartment sales agent.
'Once again thank you Judi for doing an excellent job in presenting, marketing & finally selling the house at an amazing price, more than very much appreciated. Without hesitation we would recommend you to any potential buyers & or sellers. You are one amazing Real Estate Agent, we are more than impressed with your positive go ahead attitude. Thank you so very much. Kindest regards
