About Alison


For an award-winning service that’s delivered with a smile, licensed Real Estate sales consultant Alison Rudd, answers the call. Alison isn’t just skilled at selling your home or finding you your next one, she’s also lived a varied life of experiences so has huge empathy for people and the challenges they face when moving from one place to another.

As a passionate Katikati local, Alison has taken the town into her heart and has a following of ardent clients who come back to her for repeat business. She’s been voted, for the last four years running, as #1 Rate My Agent in Katikati – an accolade that’s decided by verified vendors and purchasers in the community, not the industry. It’s an unbiased tribute based on service, she’s proud to receive.

Property renovation and Real Estate have been her lifelong passion and her superb reputation is because that passion shows. Candid, easy-going and full of empathy, Alison is also committed when it comes to getting a sale across the line for her clients. If anyone can shake the money out of the Real Estate tree in the marketing of the property, then Alison has the muscle and Midas touch. She’s an excellent communicator, trustworthy and dependable, liked not just by the public but also her industry colleagues.

Alison hails originally from the UK and moved to New Zealand with her partner Paul, 15 plus years ago. A former Salesperson, Payroll Administrator and Veterinarian Nurse, Alison grew up on a rural property and has come full circle living now on her 2-hectare lifestyle block on the outskirts of town, where as an equestrian, she rides her horse and potters about with their dog in her rare spare time.

Give Alison a call if you want to know where your property sits in today’s ever-changing market. Thinking of selling? Let’s talk.

Some of my happy clients

Good Experience. We were looking to buy in Katikati, but we do not know the area very well and we had particular needs as one of us is severely disabled. Alison completely understood what we needed and spent a lot of time with us on the one afternoon we had available helping us find the right house. We narrowed it down to two but then took a long time deciding. During this time, Alison kept in touch but did not hassle us in any way. She was also very kind and helpful through the buying process which was as seamless as these things can ever be.
~Heather DALE & Roger COWELL, Purchaser
Amazing Service. Dealing with Alison took all the stress away with selling a property. She kept me informed from day one to completion. I would recommend her to anyone looking to sell.
~Cheri DICK, Vendor
Fabulous Result in Today’s Market. Great result by Alison, very professional and efficient service, great communication. Tall Poppy’s business model creates lower listing and commission fees, which as a vendor can be passed on to the purchaser, delivering a great deal for all parties concerned. Would highly recommend Alison to any prospective seller or purchaser.
~Murray STEEL, Vendor
Professional. Alison was easy to work with. She gave us space when needed but also had all necessary information available when asked for and if not went out of her way to get us what we needed. She was always available for phone calls, viewings and enquires which is not easy when in a busy and demanding role. Thank you Alison, for finding our family a home we can enjoy.
~Tracey & Anthony SCARFE, Purchaser
Outstanding!! Wow, what a fantastic experience and result we have had delivered to us by Alison. Coupled with her extremely happy, bubbly and friendly nature, Alison’s industry knowledge, experience and expertise have been paramount in us achieving an excellent result in extremely challenging times. She has gone “outside the normal” to assist and advise us in anything we have asked of her. We cannot speak highly enough of Alison and we would highly recommend her services to any person wishing to engage the best Real Estate Agent in the area by far.
~Roy & Karen BRIMBLECOMBE, Vendor
Expertise & Professionalism with a Smile. Alison is one of the few agents around in whom you can have total confidence. She has a vast knowledge of the local market & is well informed about market trends from both sides of the sales process - the seller and the buyer. She delivered on everything she promised to do, and more. We found Alison to be great fun to work with, she has a wonderful sense of humour, and is a natural, warm person who loves helping people achieve their goals.
~Duncan & Joss WEIR, Purchaser
Highly rate Alison. Alison acted for my family in selling my father’s house as he had to move into a rest home. No other family live in Katikati and I live in Dunedin, so the majority of the process was handled from a distance. Alison was extremely helpful and professional from day one. She provided great advice as to how best to present the house which was a do up. She kept me informed and assisted with helping me find trades people from afar. She even proactively checked the property after adverse weather to let me know it was ok. The marketing was spot on and resulted in a very quick unconditional sale in a difficult market. I would highly recommend her if you are looking for an agent who is a great communicator, straight up and gets results.
~Anne STEEDMAN, Vendor
Alison Rudd. Alison is a very down-to-earth agent who I find to be very honest and is not one of those hard sales type of people, i.e. no pressure but giving one the facts as they stand. She provides the info that you need and is extremely helpful, warm and friendly.
~Susan PARK, Purchaser
A Knowledgeable Real Estate Agent with a Compassionate Nature. Alison displayed an excellent knowledge of the housing options as well as the wider community in the Katikati area. Alison was warm and receptive at all viewings. We very much appreciated her attention to detail with all requests for information and assisting us to get our purchase to fit within our particular circumstances whilst still being mindful of her client. Top Marks Alison, a job well done! Thank you.
~Jennifer McBREARTY & Peter COOKE, Purchaser
House Sale. Alison was so easy, friendly and professional to deal with. Her knowledge of our area and her communication was excellent. We cannot speak more highly of her and would have no hesitation to recommend her to anybody.
~Helen & Kees TIMMERS, Vendor
Outstanding. Alison was everything I needed as my real estate agent. I trusted her from the start as we communicated in a very down to earth way. She is upbeat and positive with a lovely sense of humour which is combined with a very professional attitude. Her communication skills were excellent, keeping me informed every step of the way. I felt she was working for a good outcome for me at all times. Thank you Alison.
~Liz BAILEY, Vendor
Selling Our Home. Alison has been open, honest and very helpful through the whole process of selling our home. She has gone beyond the call of duty to advise, help us de-clutter and present the property in the best light. She has been very supportive in our future move. We highly recommend Alison, her integrity, her caring and her positive attitude. Thank you, Alison.
~Elizabeth & Brian ANTHONY, Vendor
A Pleasure. Alison sold me the property. She listened to what I was after and found me the perfect place. When it came to selling the property, she was the first and only person I called. Alison made the process easy and worked a good deal. She was working for me, the seller. Many Thanks. I would recommend her to anyone.
~Vaughan WHEELER, Vendor
Someone Who Goes the Extra Mile. Alison took us through a number of properties in our quest to downsize from our present home. We found her most obliging and willing to work in with us. She was open to all our requests and her follow up was excellent. We would recommend her to anyone looking for 'an Agent who goes the extra mile!'
~Warwick & Sharyn JOST, Purchaser
Good Communication, Professional Response, Accurate Pricing. Alison presented a scenario for marketing the property as vacant possession. This was achieved and the sale was completed within a 9-week period. There were some trying times with people pushing their luck, and Alison was able to maintain and manage through these issues with no come backs. Good pricing and professional time management, so well done. I wish Alison and her team all the best for the future.
~Grant OVERTON, Vendor
Amazing and so Helpful! Thank you so much Alison. Very happy throughout the whole process, easy to understand, especially for first home buyers.
~Geordie WALDRON & Alice GORDON, Purchaser
Highly Recommended. Alison came highly recommended by people I trust. At our first meeting, she took the time to understand my situation and goals when selling my property - and then gave me her advice based on her experience and knowledge of the local market. This is exactly what I was after in an agent. Throughout the process I was kept very well informed of how things were going - and Alison anticipated many of the questions I had. She acted professionally the entire time. Due to her clear advice, attention to detail, and a well thought out marketing campaign, we were able to conclude the sale of the property with a minimum of stress. I would have no hesitation in using Alison Rudd as my agent again and would recommend her to anyone interested in selling their property.
~Ian MacINTOSH, Vendor
Great Experience. I had a great experience working with Alison. She was very clear with expectations. She was very happy and capable to answer all my questions. Awesome work!

~John & Craig O'NEILL, Vendor
Well Done, Alison! Alison did an excellent job selling my Mum’s house. We were very impressed, she kept us up to date all the way until the house sold. Thanks heaps.
~Evelyne GOULD, Vendor
Happy Vendor. Timing is everything. With the market turning it took a little longer to sell my house but all good in the end. Alison worked really hard for me. It was much appreciated. She kept in contact constantly and was always very positive. She did not always agree with my ideas on "shock marketing", but together we worked it out. I would recommend Alison to all my family and friends. Just give her a call for professional, caring service.
~Jenny MEREDITH, Vendor
Fantastic. We clicked with Alison's warm and friendly personality straight away. She has made the buying process super easy for us as newbies to the area and also provided helpful local insights. She looks after not only the vendor, but the buyer as well.
~Paul & Jo MORRISON, Purchaser
Professional and Friendly. The House buying journey with Alison, has been made easier with her professional friendly support. We had been house hunting for a couple of months, and we dealt with a number of Real Estate agents. She provided us with relevant information and guided us through the process. We enjoyed our time together and are happy to provide this review.
~Chris & Judith YOUNG, Purchaser

~John & Lyn BARRETT, Vendor
Professional, Knowledgeable, Friendly. It was a real pleasure working with Alison. From the get-go, she was extremely patient and eased our (my) decision making process. Alison truly understands how to sell houses. She made the process incredibly easy and her thorough knowledge, not only of general real estate, but of the local market made it a great pleasure throughout the whole process. As the market has been extremely tough, she didn’t give up at all. Alison kept me updated all the way through and was very proactive. Alison is highly recommended.
~Sheryn THOMPSON, Vendor
Outstanding Professional and Extremely Pleasant. I feel now that I selected the best real estate agent ever! From the very first meeting with Alison she put a very nervous and apprehensive seller at ease. I felt that I could rely on her completely to explain everything to me and to always advise the best plan of action for me. This proved to be correct on all levels. I was always advised what was happening with the open homes and enquiries. She knows her market well and she achieved a very good price for me. Alison is truly the best agent and I will not forget her help and understanding in what was a difficult time for me. Thank you Alison.
~Barbara MACKEN, Vendor

Awesome experience with Alison - We met Alison at an ‘unofficial’ open home on Good Friday and put an offer on the property that day. Being new buyers to the market, we found Alison very knowledgeable and she informed us professionally as to how the whole process worked. She was forthcoming in all aspects of promoting the house, was not pushy and gave us plenty of information to satisfy our decision making. We found her to be honest, well presented and professional in all aspects of the purchase. She was prompt to reply to all communication, friendly and positive throughout the whole process of the sale and purchase of the property. We have no hesitation in recommending Alison to any potential vender in the future, you won’t be disappointed.

Happy Home Buyers - Alison helped us with purchasing our first home. We didn't know much about all the things you need to know when purchasing but Alison helped us through every step of the way, always being available for any questions we had or help we needed with other things. We couldn't be any happier with the help Alison has provided to us. Alison is very knowledgeable in all areas of buying a home which we really appreciated as it made things a lot easier for us to understand the process. I would highly recommend Alison if you’re thinking of buying. Thanks Alison x
