Brianne Bignell

Ray White Beachlands

As a long-standing local resident of the Pohutukawa Coast Brie has strong emotional ties to the area that she grew up in. 

As a young girl, Brie would walk the beaches gazing up at the beautiful homes that surrounded them and often dreamed of what it would be like to live in those houses. 

As a teenager, she met her now husband Rex who has lived in Maraetai all his life and was at the time practising as a real estate salesperson. 

Fast forward 15 years to where Brie is now; a wife, mother, business owner, top 20 nationwide performer and realtor of 10 years. 

Brie's natural zest for life is a natural fit for the demands of real estate. Understanding people, their needs and with an absolute truthfulness to the way she conducts herself in all areas of her life have all contributed to her being the most sought after real estate individual on the Pohutukawa Coast. 

A lover of humanity and animals Brie devotes herself to her craft and to charity. She is always engaging in an extracurricular activity and pays particular interest in community work locally. 

When it comes to real estate - Brie is the whole package. There is simply no better option to service your real estate needs than Brianne Bignell, as evidenced in her many satisfied clients and customers. Just ask anyone you know and someone within your network will attest to this statement.  

On call all of the time, Brie looks forward to hearing from you and will welcome the opportunity to work with you with honesty, humbleness, humility and above all, love.

Kevin & Rose

It was trying times and she coped the best she could with alot of contact and reassurance.

Dean and Sarah

Brie and Mitch were fantastic with the sale of our property. Especially in such a tricky time straight after COVID. They were amazing in that they new what we wanted and after having numerous offers on the place they never at any point suggest we waiver from what we were after. And we got there in the end!! So we’ll done guys. Thanks a bunch and we will definitely recommend you to anyone. :)

Tim and Jenny

Mr & Mrs Johnson

Both Brianne and Paula have been amazing to work with they are great at keeping you update and in the loop on all that is going on


She was friendly, helpful and Knowledgeable

Brian and Lynne

The first time we met Brianne & her team was when they came round to our house after asking her for information on selling . We found them all very professional & friendly. When we decided to go with them ,Paula cam to do our open homes. She was so lovely & managed to sell in a week for near enough the price we wanted. We found her very friendly. Nothing was too much trouble . The whole team are the best agents we have had as we have moved 14 times now . Brianne has a fabulous team & cant recommend her highly enough . The icing on the cake was getting a beautiful bunch of flowers & a bottle of wine.. How lucky we were to use them regards Lynne Skipper

Aletta and Jonathan

Very friendly and helped us with everything. God Bless

Paul and Jocelyn

Elise has made the viewing and purchase of our new house very easy.

David and Hazel

We were made to feel like we were her priority (Im sure her other clients felt the same too). A real personable experience where we felt totally invested in by brie and the team. Communication was instant and every question was explained to us until we totally understood it.

Mark & Kelly

Brie and her team are awesome. Such an easy and painless campaign and sale! Brie is so warm it feels like you’re working with your bestie. Her and her team got the job done!


Very friendly and helpful team from wo to go.

Carl and Treena

Brianne and her team and so helpful and very friendly. As a purchaser you are always aware that the agent is working for the vendor and not in your interests - with Brianne this is completely different, she really made us feel that she was there to support us too.

Brian and Mary

Ensured our expectations were realistic and got on with the job of presenting the house.

Mr & Mrs Mercer

She is proactive, focused and the marketing kept our home at the forefront for most of the campaign. My only minor issue would be that you seldom get Brianne’s undivided attention during phone conversations.

Michael and Sarah

Worked to ensure our house sale and purchase was as painless as possible

Christine & Rowan

Brianne made sure we felt cared about and that she truly appreciated the opportunity to provide the marketing for our home.

Morgan & Angela

The ladies worked so hard and kept us informed the entire way they do real estate with their heart

John and Sarah

Brie was professional, accomodating and nothing was a problem.

Mrs Craig

Brianne and her team were amazing throughout the whole process! Keeping me informed and really caring about the result, they did everything in their power to ensure that I got the result I wanted (actually far exceeded my expectations) I would highly recommend Brianne and her team to anyone who needs an agent! (In fact I already have). If you want a great result, get a great team and the team at Beachlands is certainly that!!!

Glen and Lisa

Very good overall service for the property sale

Debbie & Steve

on time, friendly, caring

Peter & Gayle

Brie performed the impossible, she sold our house while it was not technically on the market which enabled us to purchase a new house, quickly and efficiently. The chain of three houses being sold and purchased must have brought a degree of pressure but Brie maintained her friendly, empathetic professionalism in all transactions and communications, we were kept well informed at every step. She is the negotiator extraordinaire! Her after sales service was just as good with lots of helpful local advice on contractors, services etc.

Peter & Gayle

She went beyond expectations to achieve a excellent price for our house and secured our new house for us. She was the Negotiator Extraordinaire. Very friendly, professional, empathetic to our concerns.

Bodelle and Jacob

Great efficient service

Bruce and Margot

Brianne has a very sound knowledge of the real estate market and sets the marketing program very well.

Trevor & Mary

Great communication. Honest. Worked well with my elderly parents throughout the whole process.

Bryan and Rebecca

I would highly recommend Brianne Bignell to a friend or colleague. I found Brianne very professional, understanding and caring.

Alice and Karl

Brianne really went over and above in this transaction and was about the only realtor who listened to what we needed and wanted to achieve rather than trying to force a sale

Brent and Maree

She is just fantastic

Dallas & Grant

Brianne is the best in the business, so wouldn't ever consider going anywhere else.

Mike and Kay

Brie looked after my parents and had their wellbeing at heart. Sure knows get stuff and kept me up to date throughout the process.


Very helpful and communicated well throughout the process.

Alice and Karl

I’ve really enjoyed dealing with Brie and she’s been very supportive throughout the process. With a view on how to improve I think we felt ‘neglected’ when we had a conditional offer early on in the sales process which later fell through. There was a campaign period of about 5weeks which felt wasted.

Geoffrey & Johanna

We find Brianne not only to be very professional but very personable we have used her services to sell other properties in the past and will continue to keep using her.

Melissa and Karen

Brie went above and beyond to help me and my family buy our home.

Rebecca and Matthew

Bree is very honest, contacted us as soon as she had information and very lovely to deal with.

Ray and Elaine

Brianne was so enthusiastic and friendly and we feel she did a good job.

Harry and Frances

Brianne was professional yet personal, her and her team were great in the purchase of our new home which we love. Also after purchase was completed she help us liaise with previous owners due to some issues we had but with her help resolved quickly. Would highly recommend Ray white to all my friends. Thanks

She was attentive and listened to our needs

David Hodgson and John & Kay Hodgson

Excellent service from original enquiry through to after sale.


Brianne and her assistant Kate made the whole purchase seemless and are very accomodating with any questions and request we had.

Sean and Tania

Very pleasant and bubbly, and she did get the price she thought the house was worth, however this was $50K less than what was appraised by the other 2 companies in Beachlands and I do feel it was worth more. Accepted offer as just wanted to move on.

Brian and Philippa

She was diligent and friendly

Sarah and Graham

She was brilliant to work with and new what we were looking for.

Anton and Joelene

Great people skills. Always on hand to answer questions. Most importantly marketed my house correctly and sold it.

Michael & Judith

Excellent communication, great result, well respected within the Beachlands community with support for local clubs and groups


Shes a friendly nice warm person :)

Josh & Tanya Earl

Brianne was awesome and we were very happy with her work esp at the end, she had to put in a lot of work to get the sale through. Only thing to fault was there was a lack of communication with some changes to open home times that we were not told about, however I think this may have been her assistants fat rather than Briannes.

Nicholas and Cecilia

Brianne was really helpful and professional. Brie and her team were able to meet our requirements if getting our property to market in a very short amount of time and had quality buyers.

Kate Quinn

Brie went well out and beyond for us and we are truly grateful

Craig Powell

Very professional and easy to deal with

Tim and Cath

She was very knowledgeable about the market activity and confident in how she expressed matters.

Lesley, Jenny and David

I find it is very difficult to recommend services of a real estate agent as your friend may not have the same experience as you have had as their property is very different to yours


Very helpful and informative.


She was friendly, optimistic and realistic in all she did.

Carol Nicholas

Friendly informative helpful

James & Jennie

Agent proved to be energetic, proactive, personable and honest.

Geoffrey & Johanna

Brianne is a pleasure to work with very professional and confident.

Noel and Glynn

Fantastic service and we could not have dealt with a better representative

Paul and Angela

I found Brie to be a delight to deal with, really knowledgeable and very supportive at every step through the process.

I contacted Brianne in October 2014 regarding the sale of our property at 17 Cherrie Road, Beachlands, from the very beginning I found Brianne to be very professional, I think my first impression was that she was straight up and honest, this impression stayed with me throughout our dealings. Brianne gave us advice on the best way to market the property and what we needed to do as vendors to get the best possible price, she stayed in touch giving encouragement and sometimes a much needed shove in the right direction. Interest in the house was good and we decided that an auction was the way to go. Unfortunately we hit a hurdle when it was discovered that the house didn’t have final sign off on the code of compliance, to complicate matters the back of the house is plaster. We had set the auction date, Christmas was looming and the council move very slowly, we had a deadline and this was a very stressful time. Brianne was there helping and advising every step of the way, she helped us deal with the council, gave practical advice and much needed support. In the end our home didn’t pass code of compliance and we went to auction disclosing this and all council reports. Brianne and the team worked hard to get us the best possible price. I can honestly say that I cannot imagine any other real estate agent giving us the help and support that we got from Brianne and the team at Ray White, she went beyond what would have been professionally expected of her, and she made the whole process so much easier even phoning just to make sure that we were alright. I would most defiantly call Brianne if I decided to buy or sell a house I would and do recommend her to anyone wanting to buy or sell. You will not find another agent more honest, supportive and hard working than Brianne Bignell. S Neilson

Mark & Trish

Brianne's expertise not only encompasses local real estate, but the area in general, which gives her a huge advantage when marketing to those in and around Beachlands & Maraetai. She is friendly and professional and listened to our requirements offering advice and assistance in order for us to achieve the best outcome.

Andrew and Mam

It was pretty simple. Of all my options available locally. Brie was the only one I wanted standing in my house at an open home. Personality+++

Darryl and Denise

Brianne was amazing and informed of every step along the way. She did everything she said she'd do and made us feel comfortable at all times. There was no pressure at all and she got the price we were after. Rex and the team at Beachlands outstanding and we'll be using this team and recommending them to our friends


My house got sold. Have always used the Bignell family for our family's real estate.

Jason and Karen

Brianne provided fantastic service, sold our house in record time for a great price !!

Allan & Jane

Accurate information given, fast & friendly service

Glenn & Sharon

Brianne very quickly become one of the family. She kept us informed and up to date every step of the way, everything she said she was going to do and would be done was done. Brie was a pleaser to work with, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone. Having dealings with a lot of agents recently I believe they should all go to the Brie Bignell school of real estate.
