Introducing Mark Hollinshead

I know the wider Papamoa, Mt and Te Puke area intimately. It's where I live and where I have sold real estate very successfully for well over the last quarter century.

Now an integral part of Market Realty, I am bringing my flair for marketing and aptitude for streamlining the whole sales and purchasing process to this, the Market Realty brand –a partnership and undertaking I am relishing.

Mark is now a market leader in the local real estate scene. The total concept of Market Realty compliments this and adds value to both my clients' real estate experience and this business. My clients recognise the benefits of leveraging off the strength of a totally independent brand and the proven results that myself as a sellers' representative has consistently achieved over the past 25 years.

Having attained his full National Certificate in Real Estate, AREINZ Branch Manager status and a Diploma in Real Estate which has assisted his already extensive practical experience, Mark has the credentials to quite simply, just get the job done. His sales track record is testimony to hard work, integrity, strong communication skills and a thorough knowledge of the industry.

Following an earlier career in the Horticultural scene in both the Bay of Plenty and South Auckland, orchard management and ownership taught him exceptional organisational and time management skills, I have found my niche in sales and marketing. A decision to combine my sales abilities with a long-held interest in property has been an extremely good move.

"Real estate allows me to do what I really enjoy doing every day. I am enthusiastic, determined and genuinely enjoy making deals happen and achieving great results for my clients, both buyers and sellers."

"I know that those who are in real estate "mode" want to work with someone who is passionate about what they do and someone that can demonstrate an ability to build lasting and trusting worthy working relationships with their clients. Everything I do is very much totally transparent so my clients always know where they stand, through their real estate journey, from start to finish".

The vast experience that Mark has accumulated enhances his day to day business offering administrative support, extensive resources, a vast knowledge base and an abiding commitment to achieving great outcomes.

"There is a commitment to excellence running through the company that is enviable. Market Realty to some vendors, is the preferred alternative real estate company in this area and the focus on service and the ability to provide a Real Estate alternative simply does speak volumes "in itself", all this at a very low and competitive fee structure.

Living the beach and or a rural lifestyle is a dream for many and when my clients choose to sell, they want to be sure that I can tap into a potential buyer base efficiently and effectively and achieve a sale in a reasonable time frame. Market Realty has the ability to reach a broad pool of buyers through marketing initiatives and dynamic local, national and global connections – The challenge is then up to me to bring the parties together. Bring on the challenge. Contact Mark on 0274 594 925 or

I joined the Royal New Zealand Navy and served 8 years engineering and diving on the frigates HMNZ Otago and HMNZ Waikato. After returning to New Zealand and spending a few years Engineering, in 1991 I embarked on my new career in Real Estate and have found this to be an exciting and rewarding profession, which quickly became my passion.

I qualified as an Associate of the Real Estate Institute of New Zealand in 2003 and served 5 years on the Waikato/Bay of Plenty District Committee of the Real Estate Institute.With my wealth of experience and local knowledge, I can give you the assurance of the very best service when selling or buying a property.

ken 700kbs 1489962322Introducing Ken Coull


A warm hello to those who do not know me, here is some information about me.I have recently joined a fabulous team at marketrealty.  I believe real estate company’s fees have been too high for a long time, so I am delighted to be able to offer selling fees at only 1.95% + gst.

In 1989, I arrived in Tauranga and purchased, Wrightcars Toyota, changing the name to, Tauranga Toyota, which is now Pacific Toyota.  The 10 years I spent as Managing Director of the company I really enjoyed. Prior to moving to Tauranga, I finished up as, General Manager for Wrightcars, in Wellington.  Spending a total of 15 years for the company.

Unfortunately, I was forced to sell my company due to ill health and spent 2 years recuperating.  During the 2 years, I was introduced to real estate and simply loved the business.  Since then I have spent the last 15 years, working in real estate with companies like Professionals, Colliers and then LJ Hooker. This profession gives me real pleasure being able to deal with happy people and making all those involved lives better.

My passion is golf.  Upon arriving from Wellington I spent 3 years on the Omanu Golf Club Board and then moved on to spend 6 years on the board at Mount Maunganui Golf Club, enjoying every minute, as I am very much a people’s person.

Jude, my better half and 3 hairy kids, Millie, Caspa and River assist me whenever they can, by delivering those horrible flyers, everybody hates, putting out signs, plus welcoming me home at night with licks and tails wagging.

In the future, it will be awesome to meet you and be able to guide you in the correct direction, giving you an honest representation, plus sharing my knowledge of the real estate market. I want to make the exercise an incredible experience for all. Contact Ken on 0274 750 086 or
