Professional Summary

Sheer determination to achieve the optimum result for both buyer and vendor has seen Maria’s real estate career go from strength to strength since entering the industry in 2003. Her commitment to always going the extra mile for her clients means repeat business forms the backbone of this busy lady’s workday – an accolade she’s rightly proud of. Alongside achieving some record prices for vendors through her finely-tuned negotiation skills, Maria counts maintaining a pool of happy buyers and sellers as among her greatest real estate achievements.

Maria’s always believed real estate was for her, and being surrounded by the knowhow, experience and positive energy of the team has assisted Maria onto the road to becoming a legend in her own right! Maria and builder husband Bruce have had a good deal of property experience over the years - combining their joint skill sets of building and interior design, the couple produced and sold numerous homes, which gave them invaluable insight into the property industry.

"I think it's fair to say we learned by experience what should be expected by vendors and buyers alike. We know the procedure, we know which consultants stood out and which were left in the shade, so right from the start I understood what my customers needed from me” says Maria of her real estate career.

Whether it’s her infectious enthusiasm and bubbly personality at a listing appointment, her knowledge and skills at a serious buyer negotiation or her genuine love of helping people into their dream home, there’s never a dull moment when Maria’s around!


"Thank you for assisting us in selling our section at Jack’s Point,  and  for guiding us through and ensuring a smooth process. And most of all being patient with me as this has taken a few years to complete!" King

“Maria Wyndham was our agent on the recent sale of our property. She was an absolute pleasure to work with. Her dedication, integrity, energy and communication to us , was of the most professional level. We would highly recommend Maria to anyone thinking of buying or selling property in the Queenstown area.” Anna & Paul

“We had everything against us when looking to buy. A complicated listing, time constraints and living outside of Queenstown. Maria went above and beyond to make it happen while accomodating our family and busy schedules. We highly recommend Maria in all ways.” Casey

"We can’t speak highly enough of the quality of professional service that Maria provided us when selling our Frankton unit recently. Not only was all communication accurate and precise but the quality of advice given throughout the process was first class." Ian

"We met Maria when we bought our first house in Queenstown and since then she has been our agent through two more house sales and one more house purchase. Throughout all of this Maria has provided us exceptional guidance and professional advice. We have really valued her real estate market knowledge and positive can-do attitude. Maria and her team worked hard and went the extra mile to get us a great price. She even sold our last house while we were away on holiday with our university student son in residence! Maria is so much more than a real estate agent - she is caring and understanding of her client’s needs and her warm personality makes the selling and buying process so much easier." Anne & Rex

"My thanks to you for a job that was done professionally and expeditiously. We never expected such success within such a time frame especially with 2 properties. You will always have our recommendations. Thank you." SM

"You are and have been fantastic, positive, fast, professional in all your approach!! Thank you." Emma

"Maria recently sold our section in Jacks Point. We found Maria to be professional and efficient in all aspects of the sale process. She was very approachable and was knowledgeable about the property market in Queenstown and was therefore able to maximise the sale price for our section. We would recommend Maria to other parties." Peter & Julie

"Thank you we have very much enjoyed working with you to, you have been amazing, and would love you to find us our next home so please keep in touch." Pip & Phil

"Thank you so much! We know you could be trusted and have faith you will get the best price for us, that's why we didn't even hesitate to call you first! You are the best Maria! Fast, efficient, very warm and kind! Even staying up in the wee hours in the morning to get things done! So wonderful." Jimmy

"Hi Maria. Just a quick note to thank you so much for selling our property for us. We know you have worked so hard to obtain this result with effort that could only be described as “above and beyond your duty”. You have always been an absolute delight to deal with and your “no pressure” approach meant that the sale was never stressful. We would certainly always deal with you again in any future property dealings." Jill & Peter

"Maria and the team were great to work with, both on the sale of our current home and the purchase of our new one. We really appreciate all of the hard work Maria put in to get us the outcome that we wanted. Friendly, efficient, and thorough, we would highly recommend her." Hayden and Lisa

"Vivien and I are truly thankful and delighted with Maria's execution of our sale at Jacks Point. Maria's impressive repertoire of deals has prompted us to engage her as our negotiator. We heed her advice and trusted her instinct throughout the process of the sale. The first offer came at the price we wanted and the rest is history. Maria's aptitude and feel for the property market is outstanding. We would recommend Maria to our friends."  Douglas and Vivien

"Thank you so much for selling my apartment for me. I know it was a bit of a challenge for you as you had to deal with tenants and the rental agency. I appreciate your efforts and your professionalism in securing the sale and keeping me updated on the progress…always a pleasure to deal with you. Many thanks." Iain

“Thank you so much for all your help with our house – you really sold it to us and we both thank our lucky stars that it was you on the desk that morning!” Simon & Nina

Our property at 1 Silverwood Lane, Kelvin Heights had been on a general listing for approximately four months, when we approached Maria Wyndham regarding marketing on a sole agency basis. Maria was very positive about the property, and mapped out a marketing strategy with us, whilst allowing us to have some input into the plan. Within two weeks Maria had matched the property to some of her clients, and an offer was made for the property. There were some issues with the title and permits, due to a previous sub-division, which had to be checked by the Council authorities, however Maria did all of the research and investigation, and was able to satisfy the purchasers that these were not an issue. Maria has worked very hard on this sale, and especially in a quiet period, and also in a time of slight uncertainty in the market, she has managed to secure an unconditional sale at a price that was most satisfactory to us. We are very grateful to Maria for her professionalism and enthusiasm shown during the sale of our property. We would have no hesitation in recommending Maria to anyone selling or purchasing a house in the Queenstown Southern Lakes District.” Nigel & Marlene

“A little note to thank you for all your consistent hard work over the time it took to sell our house. It’s a stressful time selling a house and even when I got testy you always remained calm, cheerful, helpful and patient. You and the team are a great crew and I loved the fun you brought into even the dullest of days. To get the sale together, you and Quilly worked extremely hard and tenaciously and showed intelligent handling of a stubborn stalemate. Well done and thank you.” Shirley

“Recently we have been successful in selling our property at auction with Maria Wyndham as our agent. Maria was thorough in her approach ensuring we were fully aware of all processes through our initial discussions and subsequent meetings with her. We were kept well-informed, prior to and following open homes, and of the activity surrounding prospective purchasers. Maria advised us to attend an auction prior to our own which we found very helpful giving us a thorough understanding of what to expect. Her attention to detail ensured all the necessary paperwork prior to auction was completed so that on the evening the auction unfolded as smoothly as possible. We have been very pleased with the professionalism and whole team approach when dealing with them and in particular Maria and would recommend her and them to any potential vendors.” Clive & Joy

“I first met Maria Wyndham around five years ago when I was looking to purchase property in Queenstown. My wife and I had specific needs in a property so not just any house would be appropriate. Maria took the time to understand our needs and actively set about compiling a number of houses that would meet our requirements. Over the years circumstances continued to change for us, keeping us overseas and delaying our move to Queenstown. During this time Maria continued to search out properties and keep us updated on the state of the property market here. We trusted Maria’s opinion and on the occasions we were in Queenstown we viewed the properties Maria suggested. Earlier this year we found the perfect property and Maria negotiated the purchase for us while we were out of town. Throughout the entire process we have found Maria to be very thorough, extremely professional, proactive and always pleasant. Other agents may have walked away given the length of time spent looking but Maria stayed with it and completed the sale. I highly recommend Maria to potential buyers and sellers.” Brett G

“Maria Wyndham did a superb job in helping me to buy a stunning house in Queenstown within a week. She displays initiative and dedication to her clients to secure the best solution for their needs. Maria is easily the best real estate agent I have ever worked with - I have had dealings with over 15 agents either buying or selling homes. My biggest thanks goes to Maria for her tireless efforts in trying to help me to buy a home within 6 days - we spent up to 11 hours a day together. You are an amazingly dedicated customer-focused sales person. I felt I could put my complete trust in you and you were willing to help me in any way possible. Her enthusiasm and attention to detail helped me secure a beautiful home for my family. She continuously went beyond the call of duty. When I next buy or sell a property in Queenstown Maria will definitely be my first choice of agents. Many thanks for all of your help and I would not hesitate in recommending Maria.” Corey S

“We have known Maria Wyndham for a number of years.  On every occasion, Maria has been extremely professional in her conduct, amazingly helpful - requests have always been met with enthusiasm and efficiency, furthermore Maria is a delight to interact with. We highly recommend and greatly appreciate meeting Maria.” Peter & Elaine K

“We were looking through the property press and saw a house we wanted to view. Maria answered the phone and we found her to be professional and friendly – and certainly not pushy like other agents we have found in the past. As Queenstown is a small town we wanted to stick with 1 agent whom we knew we could rely on and who would look after our interests and knew what we were looking for. Maria continued to seek properties that would appeal to us and found us the “ perfect “ house. After the sale was complete Maria brought us some great wine and gift basket which was very much appreciated. We would certainly recommend Maria to any potential buyer or vendor – we are sure that she will do a great job for them too.” Virginia & Ross

“We would like to thank you for helping us with our purchase in Queenstown. The months of emails asking lots of questions were always answered promptly with good information, enabling us to be well informed about the market before we got there. Your understanding of our requirements made formulating a list of properties to view and finding our property much easier. We really enjoyed the experience and look forward to catching up with you again soon.” Dave, Jeff & Cindy

“I just wanted to send you a note to thank you for your excellent service during our property search. We initially began our search by looking at properties on the internet. During this process we contacted quite a number of real estate agents. Most simply did not respond at all or were very unhelpful when they did. Your responses were quick, informative and very helpful. You took the time to try and understand the type of property that we were looking for and made numerous suggestions to help us in our search. Whilst we were in Queenstown your organization of home viewings and willingness to give constructive and honest feedback was excellent and this very much helped us in our decision making process. Also your friendly demeanour put us immediately at ease and your “go the extra mile attitude” allowed us to find the right property in a very short time. I would certainly not hesitate to recommend you as the real-estate agent of choice to anyone. Could you please forward this on to your supervisor as I would very much like them to know how satisfied we are with your service.” Jeff & Dave

“Maria’s intelligent and subtle approach make her a pleasure for prospective buyers to deal with. She ascertains the buyers’ real objectives and circumstances in a straightforward and non-intrusive way, and then applies impressive amounts of industry and market knowledge to finding the right property at the right price for them. Her natural energy and courteousness make the whole process as quick and painless as possible.” George

“Recently we sold our house at auction with Maria Wyndham. We had no idea about the auction, we didn't even have any experiences of selling a house. So we were little bit nervous when we first approached Maria. But Maria has always been helpful and patient, she explained to us the situation over and over until we 100% understood and her cheerful personality always made us feel relaxed and confident. She always kept us well informed what was going on and what we needed to do next, so we didn't have to worry about anything. Everything went smoothly and we could sell our house in a short period. We are very pleased with Maria and would recommend her to anyone selling or purchasing a house in Queenstown.” Michiyo & Yukio

“Ian and I wish to thank you for the wonderful service you have provided for us in selling our home and the purchase of our new townhouse. We found the whole process was dealt with in a professional, friendly manner and nothing was too much trouble. Our questions were always answered in a prompt manner and staff were always a pleasure to deal with. Already I have referred your services to people that have come through the Job Agency. When the time comes to go through the process all again (hopefully not for a year or so!!!) you will definitely be the first ones we contact.” Vicki & Ian

“Maria's laid-back manner, no pressure approach and willingness to supply us  with all information requested made our house hunting and resulting purchase a pleasure.” Mike & Keiko

“Maria is a very professional Estate Agent that I engaged with. I am very happy I was introduced to her as from the day I approached her till the day my apartment sold, I did not have to worry about anything as she took care of everything. She is proactive and always got back to me regarding statistics so I did not have to wonder what was happening to my property. Unlike some agents that I have worked with where I have had to continue to ask for the status, I did not have this problem with Maria. I am very comfortable with her professionalism and would really recommend her for all property work.” Ross

“Thank you Maria for your passion and determination with selling our property. You exceeded our expectations with getting it advertised and on the radar of the other agents. As well as that, you are very personable and great at communicating what's happening at the various stages of the sales process. We have no hesitation in recommending you to others. “ Dan & Lana

“Maria well where do I start :) Thank you so much for all your help on the sale of both of my apartments. I found you always to be a delight to work with keeping me in the loop with everything going on. Any time day or night I could ask you a question and you would always reply with a professional answer. When there were issues with my sale Maria worked through them in a professional manner and with a great deal of patience.  It's a stressful time selling a house but with Maria's great sense of humour and enthusiasm made it a breeze! Again many thanks for your help and I would not hesitate recommending Maria to all who wanting to sell a house.” Gordon Ross 

“A big thank you for selling our house at 232 Peninsula Road, Kelvin Heights but an even bigger thank you to Maria who is an amazing real estate agent.  Maria handled every aspect of selling our house in a professional manner with very little disturbance to our normal lives. This was commendable by itself. However, what is even more impressive is Maria's suggestion for us to look at 1B Peregrine Place, a smaller property but Maria's insistence was directed from her astute memory of what we came to look for in Queenstown almost 9 years ago (when we first came into contact with Maria). Maria was right - this is the property we had looked for - and despite some considerable difficulties that Maria overcame with her dogged perseverance we bought it. We so appreciate Maria and highly recommend her skills in real estate. PS she is a lovely lady too.” Peter & Elaine

“I have had the pleasure of buying 3 properties from Maria Wyndham in the past 3 years (2 of them in the past 8 months). Two of these properties were personal family homes and the 3rd is an investment property. Maria is an excellent real estate agent who listened to my needs and came up with variety of property solutions. Maria found each property and we completed the contract within 7-14 days of my initiating the property search process. Maria is very quick to respond to any questions and was happy to assist in matters outside of her responsibility as a real estate agent. She is always willing to go beyond her call of duty. Maria has a very upbeat positive attitude. She is passionate about her job and wants to get the best result for her client (a rarity amongst property agents). Maria is a great asset to have on your team when seeking to buy a property here in the Wakitipu area.” Corey

“We can't thank you enough for everything you have done. You have been a wonderful person to work with. Being the other side of the world you really have to trust who is selling your home and we did from the very start. We can now move on and that is thanks to your hard work.” Vanessa

“Well I’ve been settled here at the Beacon for a few months now and am enjoying it more every day. I just want to thank you for the effort you put into helping find a suitable property here in Queenstown. It was a long haul and you stuck it out through thick and thin for nearly five years of my searching! I appreciated your professionalism and found you always to be positive and supportive even when I must have seemed impossible to satisfy!” Rob

“Maria was given the task of selling our home in a short timeframe, and we’re delighted with the result! Three great offers within three weeks of listing. We couldn’t ask for more. Thanks Maria.” Gada

“Maria has handled a number of transactions for us. She's reliable, responsive, knows the market and understands exactly what we are looking for in a property. We'd recommend her to anyone.” Ashley

“Thank you Maria for the most fantastic job you have done selling our house. Your communication was so very clear at all times meaning that the process was a breeze for us. You were amazing!” Ann

“We found Maria Wyndham to be extremely hardworking and professional - her upbeat, positive 'can-do' manner making her a pleasure to work with. More importantly, she also got us that Sale and within just days of our signing up to sell.” Richard & Karon

“Maria Wyndham was able to give us local insight when we were selling our Queenstown section. She confidently advised us at all stages of the process and we found her regular updates on point and helpful.” Jo

“Maria you are a star! In just a few short weeks you sold our section at Jack’s Point. For us as overseas vendors your good guidance, no fuss attitude and 24/7 communication availability was unbelievable. Well done! When we are ready to purchase another property we will definitely contact you.” Ian & Pauline

“Thank you Maria for working so well for us. You were friendly, adaptable and more than ready to go the extra mile. We truly appreciated everything you did for us to ensure we got the property we wanted. We will be recommending you to anyone we wanting a property in Queenstown.” Ann & Neil
