Licensee Salesperson, Ray White Kaitaia
Keri was born and raised in Kaitaia, leaving the area to complete a bachelor of Commerce degree at Auckland University specialising in Marketing & Management. She worked in Sales and Marketing with well known global brands in the FMCG industry. A desire for a lifestyle change Keri returned to the far north in 2003 and commenced her real estate career. Keri’s marketing skills and great customer service lead to multiple Real Estate awards including, REINZ Rookie of the Year, International Best New Talent and Nationwide Best Business Growth. Keri took a break from Real Estate to have a family at the end of 2007 and whilst raising a family became a very successful Tupperware Manager consistently achieving Number 1 or 2 salesperson in New Zealand. At the beginning of 2016 Keri returned to real estate and quickly reestablished her successful business qualifying as a Ray White Premier Agent after just 10 months from her return.
Now Keri’s family is older and with great support at home, she is excited to be back in Real estate and likens real estate to putting pieces of puzzles together, matching buyers and vendor’s needs. She likes to take the time to understand her customers whether buying or selling.
In her spare time she loves spending time fishing and enjoying the outdoors with her family.
Living out of Kaitaia, we appreciated Keri's local knowledge, her expertise and clear communication which made the process of selling our mother's house as easy as it could be. She was proactive in securing a sale and we appreciated her direct approach, friendliness and efficiency throughout.
She got far more for our house than what any other agents appraisal was valued at. She stood by her word and got what she said she would get. A very friendly person and easy to work with.

I have utilised Keris services in the sale of a property for an entity which I was in control of .I knew nothing of the property market in the far north, but found that Keris advice and support was second to none. She marketed the property very effectively and the beneficiaries of the trust ended up with a sale price in excess of $30,000 more than the valuation had indicated. Keri followed the transaction closely, Keri always has her clients interests at heart and I would recommend her to any one needing real estate services in the far North area.
Keri is professional, extremely helpful, looks after you as a buyer and goes the extra mile to ensure you get what you want and has other options available if things change or don't go as intended
The entire process made us feel comfortable! She went above and beyond but more importantly explained the process every step of the way!! And more!!
My husband George and I had been trying to sell our block of land for about five (long) years, after deciding to remain living in Australia. We tried almost every agent in Kaitaia but sadly found all to be very unmotivated and discouraging (we were usually told that "vacant blocks just don't sell"). Even lowering our asking price to two-thirds of what we paid for it didn't help. In five years we literally only had a couple of people shown the land by agents, no offers. This year we decided to make a last ditch attempt to sell, privately, by social media. And luckily for us, Keri saw our ad and got in touch. She was fabulous from the get-go. Not pushy at all just helpful, pro-active, and enthusiastic! Something we hadn't had from any other agent. Incredibly, Keri showed the land five times in the first week and by the third week had not one but TWO offers for us. We were blown away, in fact brought to tears - she didn't just sell our land, she relieved us of a financial and emotional burden. On top of all of that, she has made the selling process stress-free for us by handling everything, even giving up half her long weekend to get it all done. Where our solicitor fell seriously short, Keri was there to jump in, do the running around and fill in the gaps, keeping us up-to-date at every step. We really can't thank her enough.
George & Jonelle Norman
Keri was amazing. Absolutely determined to find a buyer for our section that had been on the market for four years prior to her listing it. She had had the listing for only a couple of months
Mr CC & Mrs GA Dewe
Keri at all times went out of her way to make this purchase as painless as possible. She also went above and beyond in assisting both the vendor and myself in settling my dog issue and some settlement of furniture.
Keri is an amazing professional - someone who really knows her stuff, knows the market and totally delivers on advice and making it happen.
Craig Booth & Rae Mackenzie
If you want good honest no stress with property matters, I would totally recommend Keri. She takes all the stress and doubt out of the deal. Very communicative, honest and organised...oh and a wee bit of a miracle worker
Matt & Raewyn Tailby
I highly recommend Keri to anyone who is looking for a caring, fast & efficient real estate agent. I found Keri focused and continually recommending houses that suited my family, budget and location, she listened to what I wanted and found the perfect house in my price range for me. Keri is highly motivated and focused on achieving the perfect outcome for her clients - whether that be a buyer or seller. Thank you soo much Keri for the service you provided me, it was impeccable and you are by far the best in town!!! Your service cannot be faulted, you worked outside office hours for me and i simply cannot express my thanks enough!!
Keri communicated clearly through the whole sale process, she went above and beyond to update me and work with the interested Buyer to get us over the line. Her professional manner and suggestions were appreciated.
Brad & Justin Panther
Keri walked me through the process of selling my house. She answered all my questions and was always available.
Keri is professional at all times, works hard for her vendor whilst caring for the purchaser and assisting with the process at all times. Keri never makes you feel like anything is to hard.
I had been trying to purchase a house for about 4 weeks and had some absolutely shocking experiences, especially with LJHooker in Whangarei and I can tell you with absolute directness that Keri Hokai was a dream to deal with, my appreciation of Keri's work is total admiration as we got in a bit of a situation with one thing and another and thanks to her I have a home I love.
