First established in Taupo in the early 1960’s, Westerman Real Estate prospered with matriarch, Dorothy Westerman establishing an office in the early days of Taupo, when the streets were pumice, the town consisted of just a few shops and the iconic Lake Hotel, and brightly coloured broom coated the hillside.
Dorothy and husband Paul had made the journey from Hawkes Bay to settle in Taupo where Paul started as a builder, and Dorothy was full time at home looking after the young family which soon grew to 9 children. Dorothy’s early hobby was to clear the adjoining section, then put up a Private For Sale board and sell the section to a passing out of town fisherman or bach owner. This quickly turned into a full time job and ultimately the thriving business it is today.
It is with this extensive local knowledge, that Dorothy’s twin daughters, Elaine & Yvonne were born into the business and continued in her footsteps with a passion for people and Real Estate this ensured that Dorothys’ original vision was fulfilled. In 2002 the twins recognised that the market was changing dramatically and a more global presence was required, so a decision was made to reposition the Taupo Office under the Bayleys brand. The further addition of an office in Turangi in 2006, ensured that their clients were covered throughout the Great Lake Taupo Region.
Since that date, carefully planned expansion has seen the ongoing development of the market leading Bayleys Taupo and Turangi offices that we know today.
Ours is a proud tradition of success based on genuine service and unmatched local knowledge with over 50 years proven performance and respect within the local market.
