After spending many years working and living in the United States, Leonie returned to live in New Zealand in 2004 choosing the far north as her home.
Working in the property market both in the USA as a property stager of multi-million dollar California homes and developing and selling properties in New Zealand, Ms Mateer has now entered the Real Estate market as a salesperson for ONE AGENCY FAR NORTH .
A resident of Hihi, Leonie knows what living in the far north of New Zealand is all about.
International marketer and product developer, owner of a four star plus accommodation business in Whangaroa and international author and indie publisher, Ms. Mateer has had an interesting and diverse background.
"My extensive background in marketing, sales and negotiation enables me to achieve a high level of success in real estate," says Leonie. "My dedication to detail and getting results for both my vendors and purchasers is paramount."
Leonie has unique skills in marketing her properties - providing personal voice-over videos and strong Facebook marketing promotions to reach potential buyers.
For various reasons this was a very difficult sale to get through. Leonie worked tirelessly to move it forward and assist the sale. Her communications skills with myself and the purchasers were excellent. I have no hesitation to recommend Leonie.

Thoroughly recommend Leonie
Leonie went above and beyond to assist us with the purchase of our beautiful property. Through no fault of her own the process was very drawn out but Leonie worked very hard to sort out issues herself with the title and always kept us updated on progress. She even kept the property maintained and lent us tools when we needed them. I thoroughly recommend Leonie to get the job done and sell your property.

Subdividing a couple of lots off my farm was a long and complicated process. Leonie worked with the surveyors, engineers and the council throughout the entire process. She found a buyer almost immediately and worked with them the entire time keeping them informed. I cannot recommend Leonie enough. She goes well over and above any agent I have ever known.

Leonie has been by far the best agent i have dealt with!!
Right from the beginning Leonie has been polite, cheerful, courteous, helpful, honest and kept us informed and updated through the stressful even of selling. She helped not only with suggestions but with "hands on" as we prepared our home to be listed even bringing some of her own furnishings to dress some areas. Throughout the whole process (listing, viewing, offers etc) nothing has been too much trouble (visiting, phoning and emailing) to make sure we understood and were aware of what was happening, We have no hesitation in recommending her!! She does a brilliant job!!

Patient, detailed, and gets the best for her client
Leonie is the BEST agent we have ever worked with. We have bought and sold multiple properties throughout New Zealand and had the best experience with Leonie. To say she goes the extra mile is an understatement. Through a pandemic and other unforeseen issues, Leonie kept us fully informed on every aspect of the sale and got us exactly what we wanted with our sale. We highly recommend Leonie because she connects with her clients, sees the full potential in the sale, and focuses on finding the right buyer. If we are ever going to buy or sell a property again she will be our first point of contact. Leonie is a class act! Thank you Leonie!

Simply the best!
Leonie is the best real estate agent we've ever met! She found us our dream home in Whangaroa. Leonie was super efficient. As soon as we made contact with her by email, she sent us information about several houses we might like to look at. We met her and saw three different houses, one of which we ended up buying. She has gone the extra mile, meeting with a building inspector and helping out with several other contacts and services we needed. Can't recommend her highly enough!

Leonie went above and beyond what a real estate agent would normally do. Because we are overseas, she has organised quotes and inspections and has earned great confidence and respect from us. Everything went smoothly from the start and for that we will be eternally grateful. Thanks for everything Leonie!

From the day l met Leonie l was impressed by her professional presentation, how easy she was to talk to and that she was also a good listener. Her attention to detail was evident in her marketing skills and her continual communication with me throughout so l trusted her implicitly to handle the sale. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone wanting to sell a property. Thank you Leonie for making it so easy for me.

We have purchased and sold property through Leonie and found her very honest, open to suggestions and I don't think you will find an agent that works as hard as she does. She has a fantastic personality and can't wait to invite her to view our home when its completed. Strongly recommend using her.

Would use her again if I require her services.
All the "I" were dotted and "T"crossed so to speak. Understood the price I wanted
and stuck to it

Thank you Leonie 😀

I knew from before I met Leonie she was the right agent for me! Her sale stats speak for themselves. Not only was she empathetic to my feelings of selling my family home which was hard, she also knew my deadline and she got hands on literally helping in anyway including labour. She knows her stuff!!! Professional but hands on! Got me the price and her video was amazing

Very helpful! Went the extra mile to help and show my family and I around the property, even with little notice sometimes!
- Nathan - Purchaser in Totara North
From beginning to end of our experience with Leonie I found myself in awe of Leonie's professionalism and skill in marketing our house and making the process stress free for me. Without a word of a lie, Leonie not only hit the target date wanted for a sale, she got my house market ready at no extra charge either. The things she did still astonish me. Leonie replaced things, painted, gardened, took rubbish away, even offered to move all my things in her ute after it sold in order to meet the deadline date. I noticed she was also offering help in all sorts of ways to the purchasers prior to their move in.
Incredible Agent. I have mentioned her to a few people, even to the conveyance solicitor and it seems well known that Leonie does more than any agent for her clients. It still warms my heart about how good she is. I would recommend Leonie 100% to anyone either buying or selling.
- Maureen Paterson in Totara North
Leonie has gone the extra mile to ensure as purchasers of our new property, that due diligence was done on the legal background of the home, the facilities in and around the area, contacts with local building contractors and the property’s wonderful characteristics. We were presented with an excellent brochure compiled on the property’s historic background and all the improvements the current owners had invested in over time. We have been in contact with via Leonie with the owners gaining a raft of informative information and have enjoyed continued service with a smile after purchase. Thank you, Leonie. We will look after our new home.

Leonie Mateer was selected to market and sell our property as her knowledge of the area was excellent having lived in surrounding areas for sometime.
Photos and videos were taken by a professional photographer who also did a great job with a drone to show the outside of our property
Leonie was absolutely professional at all times, enthusiastic and encouraging.
Some places in our house needed a little bit of colour and Leonie supplied beautiful plants to bring the extra colour. When we were away for a few weeks she bought fresh flowers for the vases, lit the fires and warmed the house before showing to prospective buyers.
She advertised as promised and provided coverage on Facebook, trademe, produced brochures,
Composed an E-Book with all the details of our property. She was available at all times if we needed to ask or seek advice.
This was done at no cost to us at all.
We would recommend Leonie without question and are happy to speak to Vendors who might be thinking about selling their properties. Our details are listed below
Certainly the best Real Estate Agent we have ever dealt with by a million miles
Thank you Leonie for a very quick and easy sale.

If you want to sell any real estate look no further than Leonie Mateer. Leonie will make it her mission to find a buyer. Of all the properties I have dealt with I have not come across anyone that has put as much effort in as Leonie.
- Brydon in Whangaroa
We found selling our section with Leonie pain free. Leonie suggested making a short video using a drone (at no added expense to us) and organized clearing the section using a local contractor. We found Leonie to be very professional and knowledgeable and she kept us updated throughout the whole process even out of hours and public holidays we could not have asked for more.
