About Trista Townsend

Trista has real estate in her blood. In her veins. On her mind. And in her heart.


And although it may have been her destiny (as her mother has been in real estate for over 20 years), she really does love all aspects of the job. Connections, striving to exceed expectations and being an integral part of her clients journey, from start to finish, is what keeps her blood pumping.


Passionate about selling homes, Trista does it with authenticity and loyalty to the brand. Her clients often comment on how she goes ‘above and beyond’. This high level of client care being acknowledged by winning the 2018 Customer Echo Satisfaction Award for LJ Hooker/Harveys NZ. Trista says the reason for her successful growth is the repeat and referral business from her clients and believes a premium result; clear and open lines of communication and honest feedback are vital elements to ensuring a positive real estate experience.

Trista’s journey starts with a phone call and ends long after the sold sign goes up. Apart from getting the best result for your home, it’s the friendship established along the way that she values most. Her integrity, professionalism, and strong work ethic combined with a focus on providing the best possible service, makes it little wonder she has so many happy clients.
