LIcensee Salesperson, Ray White Russell

Maria Turner - Coastal Sales and Outer Bays Sales. Experienced in purchasing and selling property personally, I realise what a stressful and anxious process it can be and aim to provide a process that is as pain-free as possible to my clients, focusing on keeping you informed every step of the way, summarising it in one word: Service!

Along with the Ray White Russell team, I cover the Eastern Bay of Islands real estate and coastline from Russell, Bay of Islands, right through to the Whangaruru / Oakura area. Our team comprises of locally based salespeople specialising in the area, offering an office window on the waterfront in Russell 24/7 and the office is open 7 days a week.

“If you want to sell your Bay of Islands property, I want to sell it! If you are looking to purchase Bay of Islands New Zealand real estate, I would love to share what is available with you”

I Returned home to Northland in 2007 after spending a temporary 15 years in Auckland and have experience in Sales, banking, and management roles, along with running a successful corporate based business with my husband Tony for over 9 years in Auckland.

Being a water person, I am fully aware of the magic the Bay of Islands holds, I enjoy diving, snorkelling, kayaking, walking and paragliding. 
A life / work balance is important to me and I love working in paradise and sharing its wonders with my family.


We first began our hunt for a holiday home in the Te Uenga Bay region of the Bay Of Islands in October 2010. We were put in touch with Maria Turner who, we quickly found out, was the local "oracle", having made this area her home. She kept in constant contact, by phone and email, to update us on what was happening real estate-wise - even when there was nothing new to report! Our "wish list" was specific and Maria kept us informed - she was our eyes and ears as we were very keen buyers but lived three and a half hours away. After looking at three properties seriously we finally made our purchase in April 2012. We cannot speak too highly of Maria - her efficiency, the way she kept us informed for 18 months, her pre and post sales service and her gentle, warm and friendly manner. We are now very happy and proud bach owners - a dream come true for us and our family. Thank you so much Maria - we're so glad we are finally neighbours!

We have recently had the privilege of the services of Maria in arranging the sale of our bach property at Te Uenga, Bay of Islands. I cannot speak too highly of Maria's helpfulness and attention to detail in this work, her ability, tact in communicating with the prospective buyers and eventual success in achieving a satisfactory sale. It has been a pleasure to deal with her and it seemed that no request was too much. My family and I wish her well and commend her to prospective clients.
