Tamara began her property management career with Best in the Bays Ltd Ray White in 2000. In 2002, Tamara was awarded the Ray White group’s highest property management honour, Property Manager of the Year.

I have been a tenant of Ray White Best Property Management for two and a half years. Tamara is always professional in her management of the property and responds to any issues arising, promptly. She is supported by a group of good tradespeople. I am impressed by, and appreciative of Tamara's service and am confident I am in good hands.
We have had the pleasure of working with Tamara Willis for over five years as a locksmith to Ray White Real Estate Kohimarama. We have always found Tamara to be very professional and clear with her instructions to us in all our dealings with her. I would highly recommend Tamara to anyone who is looking for a strong and organised property manager.
Dave and Karen Staples - Eastern Bays Locksmiths
As a Property Manager, Tamara is one of the most organised and professional property managers that we work with. With her bubbling personality, and willingness to go the extra mile for her property owners, she knows what products will endure the constant wear of rental properties, and also has faith in our experience, to get the job done. She has no qualms about meeting our measurer on-site or organising access with tenants to get quotation and installations achieved.
Mike and Wendi - Factory Carpets
I run a house washing company and have carried out a lot of work for Tamara at Ray White Kohi over the last few years. In that time we have found Tamara to be extremely professional, well organised and very focused on looking after her clients properties and presenting them in the best light possible. We work for a number of property managers throughout the Auckland region and we have found Tamara to be outstanding in her field.
James Hollins - The Housewash Professionals
Our company has been doing business with Tamara Willis for at least 15 years and in that time we have found her to be very professional, helpful and personable. We cannot speak highly enough of her and hope we continue to be associated with her and Ray White for many years to come.

Right from the start, Tamara and Ray White have impressed us with their efficient, professional manner - an approach that has enabled us work seamlessly to achieve the high standard required, primarily for safety and of course ascetic satisfaction we strive for. Because of her of experience Tamara has been able to understand what is required and is excellent in telling us what she would like to achieve. I have no hesitation in recommending Tamara as your Property Manager.

After working with Tamara at Ray White Kohimarama for a number of years, we would highly recommend her as a property manager. Her prompt response to maintenance issues; good communication skills and reasonableness have made her a pleasure to work with.
Tony and Sandy - Bays Plumbing Ltd
From August 2012 until February 2014 I have been a tenant at 19 Kohimarama Road, Kohimarama. Throughout this time the property has been managed by Tamara Willis from Ray White Best in the Bays office. Tamara has been a pleasure to deal with from the outset, she has been approachable and has always responded promptly if I had any issues with the property. I have been a tenant in Auckland for the past 13 years and in my experience Tamara has been the most professional and pleasant of all property managers I have dealt with. I wish her all the best.
I have always found Tamara Willis to be a very professional Property Manager. She is also very nice and friendly to deal with and on the rare occasions where there is a need to contact her or request action on any matter, I have found her to be very efficient and quick to action/assist in any way possible. I have no hesitation in recommending her as an excellent Property Manager.
We moved to Auckland from Sydney in January 2013 and were keen to find a suitable home what with the school year about to start. We got in contact with Tamara and she was very accommodating and friendly, just what nervous new arrivals needed! We secured a fantastic place through Tamara and over the past 12 months she has been a great support and liaison with the the landlord. Any requests or issues were dealt with promptly, it makes our lives a lot easier.
Shane and Beverley Bradnick
Tamara is very professional, also she is warm and is easy to approach concerning tenancy management regarding issues that have arisen with this home no matter if they are big or small she is attentive until they are resolved. She communicates promptly regarding requests for repairs and maintenance needed to the property and negotiates tradesmen to make contact with me.
After moving from Scotland and staying in a hotel in the CBD for 2 months Tamara from Ray White made our transition into renting in a new country easy. From the very start, she showed us around the property, explaining features of our rental house that we were unfamiliar with. She consistently kept in touch with us keeping us updated on the situation when we decided to go for the property. During the signing of the agreement she thoroughly explained how we should go about arranging electricity, water, internet etc as were were unfamiliar with how these systems worked. She clearly understands the needs and concerns of those moving from abroad and advised us on everything from local shops to where to walk our dog! Since moving in we have had a few minor issues that could not have been foreseen, all which were dealt with very quickly with Tamara letting me know when locksmiths, gardeners, electricians and plumbers would be arriving. She went out of her way to help when the toilet wouldn't stop flushing when I called her mobile (I didn't listen to the Ray White emergency number properly!) In the middle of the night on the eve of Waitangi Day which was above and beyond the call of duty! Overall I would definitely use Tamara if I was looking for a place to rent in this area in the future.
Let me begin by saying my husband and I are ex-pats from the USA and we've only been in New Zealand for about 3 months. Upon arrival, we were introduced to Tamara Willis. She finalised all our documents and paperwork on our current rental within two days. That was huge for us as we found a place we really wanted. And we love our current rental house! Tamara is very prompt to respond to any enquiries or problems we have. For example the dishwasher was malfunctioning recently and she scheduled a repairman the next day. Similarly the toilet was playing up one day, so I emailed her about it. She scheduled someone to come and look at it the same day - she's on top of it! It is my privilege to refer Tamara Willis as an outstanding Property Manager. Tamara has always displayed a calm, caring,enthusiastic and always professional demeanor in her interactions with not only us but (from my observations) with her colleagues and other clients as well.
Tamara was my Property Manager from February 2013 until November 2013 while I was renting on Sprott Road in Kohimarama. From the very start she was very efficient and helpful. I also knew what was expected of me, and the two times that there was an issue with the house, Tamara took care of the problem the same day. I would highly recommend Tamara to any tenant or property owner.
My wife and I have the greatest respect for Tamara and are very confident she will manage our largest asset with decorum and professionalism. We certainly have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone who like ourselves is having to lease out our home but are worried that it is looked after.
Ian and Heather Johnstone
We wish to say that Tamara has been a great property manager for our rental property. She has always kept a good eye on the state of the property and ensuring that any repairs were done promptly. With more expensive repairs she discusses with us first and often has the best solution. Tamara has been great at picking tenants who will look after the place and makes sure that the rent is paid on time. It is great that we can be away for a considerable time and don't have to worry that all is well. Whenever I have discussed with her about changes to the monthly statement, she has quickly sorted out any misunderstandings.
Dennis and Maud Lodge-Osborn
We have been associated with Tamara Willis and Ray White Kohimarama for many years, in fact it seems like a marriage! For us, Tamara is at the top of her game – many years have honed her into an efficient manager, (note, she wasn't hopeless before this!). Only a phone call or email away she is always contactable and efficient in making decisions, that not only help us to 'get on with it', but calms the tenants in expediting their problems too. A good understanding of sub trade repairs & remedial work is encountered in all types of rental properties and this underscores her ability to resolve issues promptly.
Mike Hutson - Auckland
Tamara has been my property manager for over 8 years. During that time she has displayed great business judgement and tenant management, all with a sense of humour and a practised eye.. I rely on her to make decisions on my properties and have never been let down. I don't think I could ask for more.
Tamara is outstanding – she is always available when needed and has everything sorted with minimal fuss and bother. We know our rental property is in good hands!
Rob and Monica Saunders
We have had the pleasure of dealing with Tamara for the past 12 years. She has dealt with all the issues that have arisen over this time efficiently and professionally and is a credit to her profession.

Tamara has been managing my 2 properties since 2004 and I don't know what I would do without her – I have absolute confident in her management skills and trust her implicitly – she ensures everything runs smoothly with absolutely no hassles or headaches for me. She communicates regularly so I know exactly what is happening with my properties and she always has my best interests at heart. I comfortably leave everything in her efficient, effective and capable hands. Thanks for managing my properties so fantastically, Tamara.
I am extremely pleased to have Tamara managing my properties for the last 11 years. She is thoroughly professional, reliable, proactive and super efficient. Although I am residing in UK, almost half way around the world - I am always confident that my properties are in the best of hands with her. She is certainly Ray White's BEST!
We find Tamara an excellent property manager. She has chosen very good tenants for our house, she communicates extremely well and is very efficient. We have used her for three years and highly recommend her as a property manager.
D & A Edgington
It is wonderful to have such an experienced Property Agent managing our rental property for us while we are overseas. You stood out as a capable and knowledgeable professional. Thanks Tamara for all your efforts and hard works managing our property. You are not only a fantastic property manager, you are a wonderful person. It has been a true pleasure doing business with you. Very much appreciated.
I confirm Tamara has been an exceptional property manager for our Rental Properties in Mission Bay over a number of years. These properties are both furnished and unfurnished and Tamara has been meticulous in finding very good tenants and managing their tenancies through property renovations and keeping all parties happy. I would recommend Tamara as a Property Manager and will continue to use her in the future.
Tamara's exceptional work has given us a "personal" realtor for our property for several years while we have been living overseas. We have enjoyed a stress free renting process with easy decision making during this time and I would recommend her to anyone.
