About Jude Copland
When selling your most valuable asset you need an agent who is firmly on your side.
I am a member of the dynamic Bayleys Whangarei team and bring to the table a clear head for business, a genuine desire to achieve great outcomes for my clients and a healthy dose of commonsense; a real plus when it comes to negotiating.
I believe that real estate is as much about people as it is about ‘bricks and mortar’. The whole process of selling is a partnership where the weight of the Bayleys brand and the people behind it are part of the deal.
By tapping into Bayleys’ savvy marketing initiatives, established local, national and international networks and the broad wisdom of the Bayleys team across 60 offices nationwide, the SOLD sign will soon be up on your property.
I love living in this community; it’s a special part of the world. Having travelled widely, lived and worked around the globe, I am happy to be living with my partner, Alistair McRae in the Whangarei Heads area.
If you are considering a move and would like a fresh take on the Onerahi and Whangarei Heads real estate market, please get in touch. I offer a no-hassle, no-pressure service - where your needs and goals are always firmly front-of-mind.
To Whom It May Concern.
We engaged Jude Copeland from Balleys Real Estate, Whangarei, to sell our house in Onerahi.
Jude managed to sell our house within what we considered a short period of time ( 2 – 3 months) at a price within what we set at.
We found Jude to be very professional & pleasant to deal with. She explained very clearly & in plain English the procedure & requirements we had to do. Also she kept us informed & up to date of everything concerning the sale of our house.
From start to finish of our sale, we found Jude to be very easy to deal with & felt she was genuine, enthusiastic, self - driven & would have no hesitation in recommending Jude to anyone who needs a real estate agent.
We thank Jude for all she has done for us & wish her well for the future

We wanted to share with you how amazing our experience was with Jude Copland while searching for homes. As new immigrants, we were daunted by the differences in real estate practice between the U.S. and N.Z. After checking out one of Jude's listings, she contacted us and kindly offered to assist us in our house search; she was the ONLY real estate agent out of the many homes that we viewed that did any type of follow up, let alone take us on with the possibility she might not be guaranteed a commission.
Jude's knowledge of the Northland was invaluable in our search. She has a wealth of knowledge when it comes to the communities, regulations, and the general ins and outs of areas. Jude has proven to be an excellent resource when needing other services regarding home buying as well. We can't express how at ease we were, knowing that she had such an intimate knowledge of the Whangarei area.
Ever patient, Jude was nothing but positive and supportive while we continued to look at home after home in search of the perfect home for us. Jude's mantra was, "When you find the right home, everything will fall into place and it will feel effortless." She was absolutely right. We tried to force ourselves to buy a home that, based on the inspections, wasn't right for us. Almost immediately thereafter, we were led to another great home in the same community and all our needs were addressed, even with a neighbor to let us graze our horses, therefore we aren't 100% responsible for maintaining a large acreage; definitely "the right thing" for these city slickers.
We would highly recommend Jude's services to anyone searching for a home. We believe she has the skills and knowledge to serve a special niche: immigrants. If all NZ realtors functioned with the same prototype Jude functions with. we may have bought much earlier and our paths never crossed with Jude. On the other hand, had we not met Jude, we would likely have become frustrated with the process and taken a lengthy break rather than typing to you from our beautiful new home.
Jude's effervescent personality, endless energy, creative problem solving, resourcefulness, excellent organizational skills and follow-through allowed us to never have a doubt that we were absolutely in the right hands. We so appreciate Jude's ability to think "out of the box" and provide our unique realty services that addressed home hunting in a way we understood.
Best of luck to Jude in what is sure to be a very successful future at Bayleys!
