Licensee Salesperson, Ray White Plenty
Are you ready to take the brake off and shift up a gear? Ready to take that corner up ahead and encompass all it demands? Selling real estate is a journey, for both vendor and purchaser. Let me help you reach that bend and navigate it successfully.
I pride my client relationships on open and transparent communication while providing skilled guidance. Before joining Ray White I was part of a large and well-established real estate agency based in Tauranga where I gained a comprehensive understanding of the industry. I have built a sound client base of repeat and referral business. My experience comes with local knowledge supported by current market statistics and trends.
What is important to me is how well I finish the deal for my clients. With smart, targeted marketing and maintaining the flow of negotiations, I strive to reach the right outcome for all involved. If you are considering selling, or are currently on the market and having no success, then allow my expertise to guide you through to a positive result.
Now, my husband, Frank, and my PA, Natasha Braunias and I have an opportunity to create our own real estate partnership with Ray White Tauranga. We are very passionate about achieving what is right for you. Lets talk about how we can market your home to achieve the best results.

Ray White have been amazing in the sale of our house in Tauranga, especially Frank Aldridge. I live in Wellington and unfortunately needed to sell a house of ours in Tauranga. I was worried it would be a near impossible task and take up all of my time and energy. Frank was more the helpful and kept me informed along every step of the process. I found that he would do more than I was expecting, taking a huge amount of stress off our shoulders. Well done guys, keep it up.
Nicolette (and Frank) is very approachable. She is easy to talk to and has a very good manner about her. Her approach to the marketing of our home wasperfect.
Mark & Donna
Honest upfront help when asked for. Very easy to work with. Never pushy and always in contact with us. I felt very comfortable working Nicolette and always looked forward to her advice and hearing g from her.
Total professional in every aspect. Absolute trust in her integrity, coupled with outstanding negotiation skills.
Mark & Robyn
She was polite, courteous, warm, friendly and genuine. She was also very professional in her practice.
"Nicolette was of very good assistance in recently locating a property for us to purchase. She has a pleasant, friendly manner and a persevering attitude, and maintained a good level of communication throughout our search for a suitable property."
Merv & Gerry O'Donnell - 41 Edgecumbe Road, Avenues, Tauranga
"I followed a family members recommendation when I started looking to buy a house and contacted Nicolette. From the beginning she understood what I was looking for. I immediately trusted her integrity and her guidance as to the market environment. She was positive when I was frustrated. 100% rating from me and I am glad to have this opportunity to recommend her. Thank you Nicolette."
Jenni Everitt - 41a Church Street, Gate Pa
"A massive thank you, to you both for the very quick sale of our home. First open home and an immediate offer. Although for only a short time we respect the working relationship we had, the honesty, expertise, dedication you showed to us and the respect we were given for our much loved home. We look forward to dealing with you both again in the future."
Brian and Megan Stewart - 28 Kereru Place, Pyes Pa
"We had been thinking of expanding our rental portfolio into the Tauranga market for some time. Many people had recommended Nicolette because of her sharp negotiation skills, expert knowledge of the market and most of all her honesty and integrity. We gave her a spec of what we wanted and she lined up a number of properties for us to view one weekend. We were able to secure a better property than we ever imagined and we feel it is going to give us a great return on our investment. We are seasoned sellers/buyers, but Nicolette's advice through the negotiation process was invaluable. With the odds stacked against us, she was able to come up with a solution that we would have never have thought of ourselves, to make the deal work. Definitely goes above and beyond the normal agent. If you are thinking about expanding your portfolio outside of Auckland, Nicolette and her team is who you want to be dealing with. If you want feedback, call me or give Nicolette a call directly - she's great!!"
Lincoln & Natalie Lane - 25 Sunset Crescent, Maungatapu
"Nicolette helped us recently to find a new home. She is a very personable, intelligent woman, and used her initiative to find a place to suit us. Nicolette is a great communicator, and listens to her clients’ wishes. We have no hesitation in recommending her to others."
Ed & Alex Clark - 18 Stamford Place, Ohauiti
"Nicolette has been involved in the sale of a number of our properties. We have always found her to be friendly, upfront and informative, keeping us fully updated with the sales progress. Nicolette is genuine, hardworking and pleasurable to deal with. She appears to take a huge interest in her purchasers and is very engaged in her role as a sales agent, following up and doing her best to finalise a sale. I would not hesitate in recommending Nicolette to others looking to sell their property." Kind Regards Shannon Moyle

"I recently listed my home for sale with Nicolette Aldridge. It sold after being on the market for only two weeks. Nicolette is quick to form very sound working relationships and I believe she has the highest integrity – dedicated to securing the best outcome for her clients. Nicolette was always approachable, honest and professional. I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Nicolette to any other potential sellers."
Jan Cooney - Hamurana Road, Omokoroa
"We recently purchased a property in Tauranga through Nicolette Aldridge. We found her very professional and genuinely natural when it comes to creating a sense of trust and confidence, and consistently obliging when arranging viewing times and ensuring everyone was kept up to date. Nicolette is a person who, at all times, shows a perfect balance of integrity, patience and diplomacy and this, combined with her strong work ethic, makes her an excellent real estate agent to deal with. Moreover, we felt our input was valued and that everything was being done to conclude the deal in a fair and timely manner. As a result of our positive experience with Nicolette we would have no hesitation in recommending her to any prospective clients either selling or buying property."
Jan & Karl Klinge - Cliff Road, Avenues
"Thank you, thank you. This is a wonderful result and will certainly be celebrated. I personally thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your hard work, encouragement and support throughout the whole emotional journey. It is now allowing Mum to start the last chapter of her life with like-minded people around her to stimulate and fulfil her last years. Nicolette I have no hesitation in recommending you to all that I meet, friends and family alike. With kind regards, and big hugs of gratitude."
Kerin-Leigh Partridge - Turret Road, Avenues
"We find Nicolette to be a breath of fresh air in this industry. She is honest and will tell you the truth instead of what you wanted to hear. She provides you with a practical solution to whatever your needs are in regards to marketing and selling your property. We also found Nicolette to actually do the things that she promised us she would do, which we can’t say the same for some of the real estate agents we have dealt with in the past. In addition, she always keeps us up to date with the news and progress with selling our property which is really helpful as this way we were able to adjust our expectation and the overall plan accordingly. If you want a real result, we would highly recommend Nicolette!"
Andrew & Angel Thrift - Littlejohn Drive, Otumoetai
“We thank you sincerely for the pot plant that makes me smile when I come through the door, for the box of goodies which we are not resisting and especially for finding us a new home in Tauranga. You listened, you were patient, you advised, you guided us through the process and now we have somewhere lovely to start this new chapter in our lives. This is a success story and we are very appreciative of all that you have done. We wish you (and your family) all the very best in the future."
Frank & Tricia Webb - Stableford Drive, Pyes Pa
"Thank you so much Nicolette! You sold our house within a tight timeline in a competitive market. Your honesty and hard work was much appreciated, I believe that you were patient with us as first time sellers, offered us all options available and sound advice at all times. We highly recommend you."
Jamie Richardson & Jacquelyn Greenbank - Milton Road, Pillans Point
"When I arrived to Tauranga as a new resident in New Zealand, I was keen to find my home and get settled. Well-wishers had advised me to expand my search by using multiple agents. I did not feel compelled to use other agents because Nicolette always seemed aware of products on the market and could arrange any viewing at my request. My hunch was that one agent would know me the better and tailor the search to my needs. Indeed, over time I got to know Nicolette better and noticed that when we inspected a home, she was watching my reactions to the environment. She was increasingly intuitive to my responses and quickly began to identify homes in the market that were more suitable. Our dialogue flowed effortlessly, and I was comfortable to express my opinion. After seeing so many properties, when the right house came along, I felt well informed and prepared to act quickly. The negotiations were professional and I felt supported throughout the process.I am confident that it was the time and effort Nicolette put into my search that yielded a home that is truly special and interesting."
Catherine McKeating - 16 Fergusson Way, Tauranga
"With regard to Nicolette Aldridge Real Estate Agent, I have found her to be most professional and charming in her approach to the sale of my home. Nicolette has attracted a great number of viewers to the open house days and advised me on many important clues to presenting my house to the best advantage. She is always available and answers calls promptly. Advertising of the property was very successful as it attracted a lot of traffic in our quiet street. I would recommend Nicolette Aldridge in her focussed manner of salesmanship."
Betty Miller - Chestnut Way, Bellevue
"We already had our property on the market when we visited an open home you were hosting for another property and from that encounter, we knew we liked your style . We felt we experienced what we wanted in an agent that day we made the choice to switch. When we engaged you to market our property, you demonstrated an upfront approach and justified every element of the marketing plan for our property with reliable follow through which left us feeling well cared for. You definitely have a knack for what you do and we just wanted to say thanks again for getting us to the finish line."
Paul & Jennifer Carroll - Minden Road, Te Puna
"We recently purchased a property in Tauranga through Nicolette Aldridge. We found her very professional and genuinely natural when it came to creating a sense of trust and confidence. She listened carefully to our requirements. She took the time to identify what sort of property we were looking for and was in tune with our hunt for the ‘perfect family home’. Nicolette worked tirelessly, always with enthusiasm and determination to help us secure the property we wanted. Although we visited a large number of properties, Nicolette was always patient and we were impressed by the level of dedication that Nicolette demonstrated. In the end Nicolette found the "just right” house for our family. We are confident that it was the time and effort Nicolette put into our search that gave us a home that is very special. Nicolette showed utter devotion and perseverance in assisting us. We would have no hesitation in recommending her."
Tony & Natasha Anderson - Waratah Street, Matua
"Duncan and I would like to take the time to thank you once again for the fantastic job you did for us selling our home in Fourteenth Avenue. Your communication and work you did to get a huge amount of people through our house was amazing. A great result and unconditional in 8 weeks!! We will definitely be recommending you to anyone who is looking for a great agent."
Duncan & Anna Smith - Fourteenth Avenue, Avenues
"We first met Nicolette 6 years ago when we were looking for a home, although she was not our agent we were impressed with her. We kept in contact and when it was time to sell and relocate back overseas she was our first choice. We were not disappointed in our faith in Nicolette. Our home had a very narrow market, but her efforts on our behalf could not have been more positive. We will not only miss our great home but we will miss Nicolette as well. In a overcrowded market of real estate "experts", Nicolette shines brightly. A "real expert"."
Barrie & Kathy Harnett - Myres Street, Pillans Point
"Mum was recommended to approach Nicolette Aldridge to sell her home after she had decided the time had come to sell. Nicolette asked me to come along and be part of the process. I found Nicolette to be punctual at all times and totally focussed on the job in hand. She knew the market well and sat us down and explained the current housing market and told us what would have to be done to get a good result. Everything she said was clear and concise, she dotted every i and crossed every t. All the complicated paperwork was explained clearly so there was no confusion. I found her very sensitive to my mother’s needs. The house ended up sold conditionally before the first official open home and went unconditional several days later. After the sale, Nicolette has stayed in touch and is always only too happy to answer and deal with any queries, be they large or small. Nicolette did an absolutely fantastic job. She has helped to make a very stressful situation come to a seamless conclusion for which I give her my heartfelt thanks. I cannot recommend her highly enough and am singing her praises to all of my friends."

"Nicolette went the extra mile during the Christmas period to assist us with purchasing a property in Tauranga (with us finally signing an agreement on Christmas Day). We are moving to Tauranga and Nicolette was great at showing us a range of properties which matched our needs. In addition, Nicolette was flexible with viewing times to suit us and fast to respond to email communication. We are delighted with our new home and highly recommend her."
