About Us

Thornton Realty is an independent real estate company, based in Havelock North, offering clients tailor-made marketing campaigns to achieve the best result for their property assets.


Principal Terry Thornton has more than twenty years industry experience, cutting his teeth in the Auckland commercial/ industrial market during the eighties and nineties. He returned to Hawke’s Bay in 2001 where he ultimately established his own agency Thornton Realty, in 2006. Terry has recently been joined by son, Campbell, who has also had six years experience in the Auckland CBD commercial/ industrial markets. Together, they are creating a reputable real estate company that provides an unparalleled level of service and expertise.


As a small agency, we offer greater flexibility for our clients by not offering standard marketing packages. We will create a package specifically designed for each property, with a personalized approach focusing on the client’s needs and wants, as opposed to catering for the market ‘en masse’. The emphasis is on personal service - the delicatessen, not the supermarket. As we are not a franchise based company paying associated franchise costs, our agents can cover a wider geographical area which is client related, versus territory related. It’s all about the client / agency relationship.


We are a vendor orientated company. Our mission is to achieve results that exceed the expectations of our clients. It is the vendor who has elected to utilise our marketing services, and in return, we genuinely work to achieve the best possible price for their investment.


We cover all sectors of the real estate market, from residential/ commercial, through to rural and lifestyle properties. Our nationwide database of vendors and purchasers mean the Sales Consultants can offer services to clients based throughout New Zealand. The number of real estate enquiries in Hawke’s Bay is increasing markedly, with job insecurity in the U.S. and U.K. creating significant email inquiry from ex-pats and others, along with national and local interest. The team at Thornton Realty is readily available to discuss your real estate requirements.
