Licensee Salesperson, Ray White Beach Haven
When my husband and I returned to New Zealand after living and working overseas, there was only one place we wanted to settle and raise our family: the North Shore. I know why this special part of Auckland is so popular with homebuyers – the relaxed lifestyle, beaches, cafes, shops and excellent schools. As a real estate salesperson, I feel very fortunate to specialise in this area where I live and love!
I have had a successful career in television production, but I always knew I wanted to work as a real estate professional. I have bought and sold a number of homes and am an experienced renovator and landlord.
It’s in the blood! Growing up in a household with two successful Real Estate salespeople as parents, I have seen the hard work, energy and commitment needed to succeed.
My commitment is to achieve the absolute best results for my clients with the least amount of stress and hassle. I am genuinely excited about the whole sales process and dedicated to ensuring our marketing for your home, attracts attention from buyers all over Auckland and beyond.
100% customer satisfaction is my goal!

Rochelle Brinsdon from Ray White, Beach Haven, was extremely good at walking us through the process of selling our house. She explained the different approaches and marketing strategies and how these could be used to obtain the best result for us. She detailed exactly where her assistance and advice ended also; where decisions were solely ours. Rochelle was very friendly, extremely professional, easy to talk to, and frequently went above and beyond, by popping over while we were in process of getting the place ready to sell, with some friendly encouragement, and the odd ice-block or snack to tide us over. She also had a very good idea of what work would help at sale time and what wouldn't. Come auction night she was very understanding of our position, our goals for the sale, and our obvious nerves. We came away with an excellent result, which we give Rochelle and the great team at Ray White, Carpenter Realty, a massive amount of the credit. We would recommend Rochelle unequivocally. She is brilliant to deal with, and she will look after you in whatever you wish to achieve, whether that is to buy, or sell. Thank you Rochelle!

I researched all the real estate teams in Beach Haven and I choose Rochelle and the team from Ray White. I made the right choice. Rochelle and her team were very good at dealing with potential buyers. They hooked them in and delivered a good result for today’s current market. Rochelle has extensive knowledge of the area and kept me up to date on a regular basis with the process of the sale. I recommend Rochelle and her team if you want an efficient sale of your property. I didn’t think it would sell so quickly but I was lucky there was a buyer. 16 March 2018
Simon Russell - Birkdale, Auckland
Rochelle is a fantastic real estate agent. She works very hard to achieve your goals and is very thorough with her communications and is a great salesperson. We would definitely recommend Rochelle as an agent who will work exceptionally hard on your sale, and is equally as supportive when searching for a house to purchase. Feb - 2018
Erin Hambrook - Glenfield
Throughout the stressful process of selling our rental property located in Beach Haven Rochelle has been amazing and an absolute gem. I found Rochelle to be very knowledgeable, approachable, personable, professional and generous with her time. From the very beginning of marketing the property Rochelle gave me honest sound advice and even helped with the cleaning of the house before the photographer arrived and that is devotion right there!! Rochelle did a great job of managing the tenant and most importantly in this market bringing a buyer with a happy result of having this house sold 12 December 2017
Rochelle was recommended to me by a work colleague who had sold her home through Rochelle. My overwhelming memory of my work colleague''s report of Rochelle was that she worked extremely hard to achieve the sale of the property. As soon as I met Rochelle I knew I had found the right agent for me. I cannot commend her communication skills enough. She calmed my anxieties by proving that she had a comprehensive knowledge of the local area but with a realistic view of the current market. She kept me updated frequently and regularly - never once dId I have to chase her up. One of her outstanding qualities is her very positive attitude to any situation that might arise and her ability to deliver the goods. Rochelle always acted with integrity and honesty and my expectations of her were in fact exceeded. I can therefore highly recommend her to any prospective vendor or purchaser. Good luck Rochelle and thanks so much, hand on heart you are awesome

Garth Blackburn - Birkdale
I first met Rochelle a few years ago when she knocked on our door inviting us to the open home of a house she was selling for one of our neighbours, she has since sold a number of the houses in our street, all for great prices and I have seen her work really hard on each of them. So when it came to us selling ours it was an easy choice to ask Rochelle to assist us. Rochelle’s knowledge of the local area is outstanding and through this process I have discovered that her network is incredibly large!! This knowledge definitely helped us during the process as she was able to give us real life examples of situations she had managed in the past which made us confident and armed us with information that helped us to make decisions. Throughout the process Rochelle has kept us informed with buyer feedback, she’s been completely accessible and responsive to our many questions, made suggestions around how to run the process but ultimately left the decisions to us and listened to and understood what we wanted for the sale of our house. Everything that she committed to has been delivered and in delivering a service my expectations have definitely been exceeded. Ultimately Rochelle worked as hard for us as I have seen her doing many times for our neighbours, she generated a tremendous amount of buyer interest and secured us a fantastic price. Without wanting to sound gushy I can’t thank her enough and will refer her on to anyone I hear of who is selling a house!
Kaela and Jonathan Hindle - Birkdale, Auckland
Rochelle was exceptional. Great communicator and she put us at ease in what we expected to be a very stressful process. The consummate professional. Redeemed Real Estate Agents for us and cannot recommend enough!
Martin and Nadia - Bayview
I recently sold my family home in Beach Haven and found it to be an amazing experience through Rochelle. I needed to sell my home quite soon due to my personal circumstances but taking the first step was proving difficult. Rochelle helped me right from the start, with researching and planning my move to a retirement village. If it hadn’t been for Rochelle and all her help; I wouldn’t have been fortunate to be in this great position. She listened to my needs and made it a quick auction process. Rochelle had all the steps lined up and kept me updated of these which proved to be very helpful as I’ve never sold property before. I would without a doubt recommend her to others. I was also very impressed with the auctioneer who got a premium result for me. Thank you Rochelle!
Pauline Clark - Beach Haven, Auckland
I first met Rochelle when she was selling a property in Beach Haven. I instantly liked her open and personable manner. She seemed genuinely interested in everyone who visited the property and attended the auction. I was also impressed with the professional video she produced and the ‘Owners Renovation Story’ which she included in her marketing. For me, these added personal touches to her campaign and they became factors in my choosing Rochelle to sell my Birkenhead property. I wasn’t disappointed. From the get go Rochelle was on the ball with marketing plans, presentation assistance and open homes. I felt safe in the knowledge that I was entrusting her with the keys to my home of 21 years. She kept me updated and apprised of all visitors and queries relating to the property throughout the whole marketing and sale process. Rochelle’s persistence and dedication in selling my property, and achieving the price I wanted, was second to none. I highly recommend her as an agent of choice for selling residential property. Well done and thank you Rochelle!
Joanne Kendall - Birkenhead
Personable, honest and hard working.
I cannot fault Rochelle. She i approachable, friendly, professional and reliable.
We recently sold our home with Rochelle after having her recommended by friends. Our home represented a tough sell in that it was at a very high price point for the location at the time, so our expectation of Rochelle was to overcome that challenge and bring buyers from others areas, as well as locally, in order to achieve the sale. We also wanted an agent that was trustworthy, professional, effective and approachable. After the first meeting with Rochelle we immediately cancelled our other appraisal bookings and signed with her, and we are very glad we did. Our home sold in nine days, above reserve, at auction following an accepted pre-auction offer. Rochelle advised us throughout of the recommended course of action, whilst listening to our needs. When we chose a course of action, Rochelle responded, took it in her stride and made it happen seamlessly. We have no reservation in signing Rochelle next time around

Rochelle helped us in selling our 2 bedroom unit and she did a fantastic job!! Even though we were overseas during the campaign, it was a stress-free experience, thanks to Rochelle who took care of the entire process. We were extremely impressed with Rochelle’s in-depth knowledge of the area and personal attention. Her professionalism, courtesy, advice and honesty were first class, she kept us informed every step of the way. We highly recommend Rochelle to anyone selling or buying real estate.
Ronnie, Jyoti and Tejal Tailor
After many years of buying and selling homes, Rochelle would be by far the best agent we have ever used. Rochelle was very professional, she has an excellent knowledge of the area, she is very well connected and she demonstrated great determination to get our property sold. We found Rochelle to be reliable, prompt, an excellent communicator and she showed excellent customer service because she goes the extra mile and her bright and bubbly personality is an asset to her. Rochelle is a first class estate agent and we can highly recommend her to anyone that wants a stress free, enjoyable experience of selling or buying a property.
Jamie and Natalie Barlow - Beach Haven
We were very impressed and pleased with Rochelle's professionalism and enthusiasm when dealing with the sale of our property. We were kept well informed right throughout the process and appreciated her meticulous attention to detail over the course of our campaign. I would recommend Rochelle to anyone as reliable, trustworthy and focused.
Kurt and Sarah Tyson - Milford, Auckland
Our main concern in selling our house was deciding ‘what is it worth’ and how can we get the best possible price for it? Rochelle was recommended by a friend and upon meeting quickly took us through comparable sales in the area and helped us find the value we would eventually sell for. She was very well prepared, had answers to all our questions and was always available. We found her to be very hard working and to be honest, we just let her do her thing and sell our house! I would definitely use her services again. Thanks for everything Rochelle!
Greg and Fabiana Hay - Beach Haven, Auckland
Rochelle was extremely helpful,very friendly and approachable through the whole process making it too easy.
She is very professional and personal and I trust her.
We recently sold our house in Beach Haven, we got Rochelle to sell it because of her knowledge of the the street and the area. We would recommend Rochelle to others as Rochelle is friendly & honest (I know even for a Real Estate Person😁), our house selling was a pain free experience. I would recommend Ray White Beach Haven if you are selling your house
Marie and Craig - Beach Haven
It is with great pleasure that we wish to provide our testimony for Rochelle. In planning the next phase of our life, we decided to sell our house at 193E Eskdale Rd,. We decided to get 2 real estate agency’s to appraise our home and provide their marketing plans to sell our home. We were impressed with the appraisal and marketing plans from Rochelle and agreed to list our home for Auction with Ray White Beach Haven. Throughout the entire process Rochelle acted with a very high level of integrity, displayed a strong work ethic, communicated regularly by phone and organised weekly appointments with us, to assess progress towards the successful auction. Rochelle has a great personality, is very honest and extremely reliable. Rochelle chose Tim Obern an experienced Ray White Auctioneer to run the auction onsite on the 12th November. We felt very comfortable with Rochelle throughout the 5 week process, that culminated with very happy purchasers, and ourselves as very satisfied vendors. We would recommend Rochelle & Ray White Beach Haven team to anyone wishing to have a successful sale of their home.
Alan and Elva Hewetson - Birkenhead
From her first introductory presentation to the successful sale outcome within one percent of her predicted selling price, I was totally impressed with Rochelle's expertise, enthusiasm and sheer professionalism. I simply cannot imagine how anyone could do it better. Well done Rochelle, and thank you sincerely.
Phil Heath - Birkdale
Rochelle has been very professional throughout the whole sale & purchase process. When I had some questions about the property, Rochelle would always go out of her way and get the answers for me. Highly appreciate all the hard work she's done for me. Appreciate it.
To Rochelle, We want to express our sincere appreciation for all that you did to assist us with the recent sale of our house.

Your professionalism, knowledge of the market, suggestions and marketing strategies all contributed to our overall feeling of confidence and peace of mind. Finding someone willing to take the time to listen to our needs while keeping our interests in mind meant a great deal to us. It was great working with a real estate agent who is so committed to getting the highest possible return on our investment and someone who is passionate about what she does forher clients. Your extensive real estate experience combined with your professional manner and integrity made it pleasurable to have you acting on our behalf. It was a pleasure to deal with you and you made the process as stress free as possible. We can’t thank you enough for all your efforts! We would not hesitate to recommend you to our friends or anyone who may be looking to sell their property in the future.
Michelle and Moki Patterson - Beach Haven
Rochelle was great during the process of marketing and selling our house. She took every care to be sure we were informed and kept up to date with potential buyer feedback, any interest in the property and was positive about the forthcoming sale at all times.
Moki and Michelle
Rochelle was easy to work with, she was highly professional in all our dealings and was upfront with us the whole way through this process. Her patience in answering all our questions and ability to we our minds at ease was much appreciated.
Andrew & Jo
The agent found the property and was very professional in helping us purchase
My wife and I tasked Rochelle to find a new owner for our beloved home as she was recommended by many on a Facebook community page. We found Rochelle very pleasant and easy to deal with, and she kept us up to date every step of the way. We also liked that she acknowledged the support of her team. Rochelle's hard work and experience culminated in a multi offer situation in a short period of time, and we were very pleased with the outcome. We now have first hand experience of why she is so highly recommended. We wish her the very best.
Colin and Alise Oldale - Beach Haven
Rochelle was all round helpful, quick in returning any communications, prompt in timing, excellent explanations and happy to ask questions to the vendor that i had about the property - a sunny personality and professional at all times
Rochelle's professionalism and commitment in achieving the best possible result in selling our home is outstanding. She kept us updated throughout the process.
We wish to thank Rochelle for her help in the recent sale of our property. We were impressed with Rochelle’s professionalism and expertise when she produced a market research report she did on our first meeting given that we arranged for the meeting on the same day. This has helped us in our decision in organising the sale of our property in a short time frame. Throughout the process Rochelle was focused on achieving the best possible results for us. Keeping us up to date with the process and feedback from open homes. Rochelle is optimistic in finding a buyer for our property which she did. We would recommend Rochelle to others looking to sell their property.
Karen and Daniel - Birkdale
This was our first time ever selling a house and it meant a great deal to us to find the right person that would match the love, sweat and tears we had put into our home. Over the years, agents had certainly made themselves known to us so we felt we had a good selection to choose from if and when it came to selling. However we had seen first hand the success Rochelle had in our street with previous vendors and so we set our sights high. We met with Rochelle and from the get go she displayed absolute determination, flair and confidence. We had very little experience in selling a home and our many questions were answered with honest integrity and a good sense of humour which was important to us - after all this is your biggest asset and trust is paramount . From start to finish we loved this intense journey and the results surpassed our expectations. I would happily recommend Rochelle.
Amanda and Steve - Birkdale
Awesome sale in a slowing market
When selling our house we wanted someone who would look out for our best interests and provide us with honest feedback. Rochelle was great, guiding us through the process and making sure we knew what to expect at each point, what we needed to do and what decisions were required from us. The outcome was great too, getting us what we needed in a really good time frame. We would highly recommend Rochelle to anyone selling their property.
Shelley and Dean Aitken - Beach Haven
Rochelle Brinsdon was our agent when selling our house and we found her honest and relentless to detail and very knowledgeable. She kept us well informed over the process. Rochelle helped us get a great result for our house and showed us lots of properties for viewing. Her professionalism, friendliness and enthusiasm helped us to be confident over the process of selling. We would recommend her to others who are looking to sell their property. Thank you Rochelle for your support and advice over this time. If you are thinking of selling your home, you should list with Rochelle!
Royce and Judy - Birkdale
Rochelle delivered everything she promised and more.also very easy to communicate with.
Dean and Shelley
On our first meeting she was prepared and had done her market research. I was treated with respect even with my limited knowledge of the subject, my views were heeded and respected all of which enabled me to place trust in her abilities and therefore achieve a very good result. I am extremely surprised at the result from selling my house through Rochelle. I was impressed at her willingness to listen to my opinions and the obvious expertise and knowledge she had. For health reasons this transaction was not always easy but the end result was far beyond expectations because she presented her goals in a reasoned and honest manner I believe this was a major contributing factor to the outcome.
Peter Davidson - Birkdale
Rochelle was thoroughly professional throughout the process of selling my property; fully committed to the process and dogged in her determination to overcome some bumps in the process. With a friendly relaxed manner Rochelle was able to set my mind at ease, and as a result we achieved a pleasing result at auction. Rochelle's communication was exemplary, she was always available to talk and listen, and she kept me well informed about all viewers and any potential purchasers. I would recommend Rochelle to anyone considering selling their property, and I would not hesitate to engage Rochelle in the future.
Philippa Leask - Beach Haven
Rochelle was always professional, yet friendly and reassuring.
She was very attentive and very professional at all times and delivered on what she had promised.
Rochelle just helped me in selling my first house and she was fantastic, she kept me informed and took care of all the details. She was extremely helpful and attentive throughout the entire process. She is knowledgeable, experienced and professional. I would highly recommend her to anyone.
Carla Jordan - Beach Haven
Because she was tenacious and determined from a saleperson point of view yet still approachable and friendly to deal with. Also very tactful and capable of just handling things.
I recently needed to engage an agent to assist in selling our family home and met with Rochelle Brinsdon of Ray White Beach Haven. I was considerably impressed with her manner and definitive market experience but initially I felt her to be too gentle to really fit my image of what a cut throat real estate agent should be. I mentioned this to her and she proceeded to push a very forceful case and list her many achievements with such vigour and passion I was forced to quite rapidly reassess my initial impression! She presented extremely competitive rates and her marketing package was also very economical. Once I gave her the go ahead I found she took charge and got things moving with exactly the kind of rapid action I had been looking for. She also managed to take the time to ease my dad through the process as well which helped my stress levels considerably. The communication was excellent and I always knew what was going on, she broached a few delicate issues with the house with tact and more importantly, a swift action plan. I was able to simply approve her plans and she made it happen. Our house went on the market on the 9th April and she presented a pre-auction offer $20k above our planned reserve on the 16th April. We had settled the entire sale by the 24th April. I had wanted a fast sale and a good price and Rochelle delivered above all expectations. I would absolutely recommend her without reservation and should I need to sell or buy she would be my first call.
Alice Buchanan - Beach Haven
Having lived in our home for almost 42 years our biggest concern was finding an Agent that we could relate to. Rochelle was very reassuring in our concerns and was very helpful in making sure we were always kept up with everything that she did.The results were wonderful and we would definately use Rochelle again.
Harry & Marlene - Birkdale
She was very easy to work with and keen to get the same result we wanted. Always available to talk and ask questions.
Rochelle made us feel at ease right from the first time we met her.
Harry & Marlene
The thrill of having our house sold by Rochelle from Ray White Real Estate of Beach Haven, is still with us! It is always a worry that you are choosing the right person to entrust with selling your property, but right from the word go, we found our choice of Rochelle the absolute right one for us. Great marketing skills, always professional and positive, never negative at any stage of the selling process and extremely knowledgeable of the market we were selling in meant our house sold within 2 weeks of going on the market. Rochelle was an absolute delight to have on our side during this stressful time and we would have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone who is about to enter the property market, either as a buyer or seller. Rochelle is thought of very highly by us, and we would definitely use her again.
Alex and Pat - Beach Haven
We recently engaged Rochelle Brinsdon to sell our property. We were unsure of the best way to sell the house and she advised using the auction process. We were hesitant at first as we had never sold or bought a house that way before. Rochelle explained the whole process to us and put to rest any concerns that we had. Throughout the sale campaign she helped us with preparing the house for sale and was always available to answer any questions. We received regular updates both verbally and in report form, which we found very reassuring and we felt that Rochelle was always working on our behalf. The auction was brought forward and we were very happy with the outcome. We would highly recommend Rochelle and would happily use her services again.
Mike and Olivia - Beach Haven
Before selecting Rochelle Brinsdon from Ray White to sell my home, my biggest concern was to have an agent with a 'gung ho' attitude. I found this in Rochelle. Whilst presenting as an intelligent, warm person, I was impressed with her genuine attitude to obtain the best price for me, not specifically the best commission for herself. From the start, Rochelle kept me fully informed on all aspects – legal obligations; how Ray White's comprehensive advertising programme was progressing each week, and generally making me feel relaxed and confident in the eventual result. The final result far-outweighed my expectations with Rochelle's regular follow-ups of anyone showing interest in my property, as well as (Tim) the Auctioneer's, professional conclusion. I would strongly recommend Rochelle to any prospective vendor.
Cheryl - Beach Haven
We felt that Rochelle listened to our concerns and had the appropriate responses to put our concerns at ease. We felt that had we gone with another agent we would have not achieved the price for our property that we did. I was amazed at the result that was presented to us. We found Rochelle went in and fought as hard as she could for what was right for us as the vendor, this was tested when I said to Rochelle this is my bottom line and Rochelle delivered on that. We have referred potential clients including Neighbours to Rochelle and Ray white Beachhaven as they saw the and heard of the results we achieved through Rochelle.
Rebeccah and Daniel - Birkdale
Our biggest concern, when we decided to sell our house, was the fact it was an Insulclad house and with the perceptions of these buildings, how would that affect the sale? Rochelle was a consummate professional, outlining her full 6 week plan, for marketing, open homes and auction, assuring us of her best efforts at overcoming any worries prospective buyers may have about plaster homes. We are so glad our house has sold, the success, we are sure, is because of Rochelle's never dimming enthusiasm and sheer graft.We would definitely use her skills again.
Kirk and Sheila - Bayview
I had the privilege of working with Rochelle Brinsdon recently while selling my home by auction. Rochelle is professional and approachable – guiding me through the process with great efficiency. She is thoughtful, empathetic, diligent, and responsive. I always felt up-to-date with the process and able to call on her at any time – even to rescue me from being locked out of the house! The guidelines I was given for the house price at auction were realistic, and the end result was beyond expectations. Thank you Rochelle, for your hard work, dedication and patience. I would highly recommend working with Rochelle and I hope to see you again in the future.
Amy - Beach Haven
Rochelle has a positive attitude, is obviously intelligent, presents well, works diligently to obtain positive result and is honest and friendly.
