Paulette Tainsh

Licensed Branch Manager | Cooks Beach Team

A born and bred Kiwi, I am lucky enough to live in one of the most beautiful parts of New Zealand.
I have always been drawn to the sea and more than a decade ago my family and I made a permanent move to live here at Cooks Beach.
I am passionate about this area, from its stunning scenery, reserve walks, marine reserve to the boating, fishing, diving and community spirit. Cooks Beach is definitely a great choice for raising a family, or relaxing on your beach holiday.
If you are thinking of buying, I am here to help find your special place.
Or if you are considering selling, give me a call to discuss how I can help you. I have a strong customer service and marketing background, and I am dedicated to delivering results.
Pop into our office, 33 Captain Cook Road, Cooks Beach, and speak to us today we would love to show you around this special part of New Zealand.

Ken and Karen Cunningham

"We worked with Paulette recently for the sale of our property at Cooks Beach.  Throughout the process Paulette was efficient, professional and easy to work with.  She achieved a good result for us in a short period of time, and definitely went above and beyond. We would absolutely use Paulette again."


"My husband and I are very happy with the effort and energy Paulette and Richardson’s Real Estate put into selling our Cafe and property.  The Website and Advertising of our property was spectacular and easily accessible with clear colour photographic images.

Paulette’s communication was very thorough and informative, with emails and phone calls every few days and sometimes daily, before, during and after the sale.  We found Paulette’s professional and friendly approach helped move things forward in a very timely manner for all concerned.

We were very pleased with the sale price negotiated and have no hesitation recommending Paulette from Richardson’s Real Estate to any person needing professional help to sell or Purchase property and would definitely use them again.  Thank you"

Glennis & Don McIntosh

"Well what an amazing experience! Driving down Captain Cook Rd on a nasty rainy, windy, cold day in June, we saw a Richardsons For Sale Sign. We stopped and were very interested, we immediately rang Cooks Beach Richardsons real estate and Paulette answered the phone (after being especially encouraged by our two daughters). We asked for a look through and ten minutes later, we were inside and standing on the deck enjoying the views. 

We loved the property! 

A few days later we had a contract on it.. Then it was ours!

A huge thank you to Paulette and the Richardsons team who were so professional. There just wasn’t anything we didn’t know, as they explained everything we needed to know.  They are such an asset to the Cooks Beach Community and we can not speak highly enough of how well our purchase process went. 

Thanks so much Paulette for being a part of us buying a beautiful part of paradise."

Allan & Kelly Westbrook

"Paulette - Thanks again for your help & professionalism in regards to our property sale. This has been a great outcome for us, & we really appreciate your efforts in presenting our property to the market so well, & for your ongoing communication & guidance throughout the sale process.

It’s been a pleasure & we certainly will drop in when next visiting!"

Brian & Tina

"It is with pleasure that I write this brief reference for Paulette and the team at Richardsons at Cooks Beach. Since our first introduction they have been nothing but professional. They have been attentive, upfront and reported constantly the activity with our property.

Additionally they gained a result where we achieved more than our listing price."

Ken - Crosson Architects

"Approachable, efficient, professional and friendly.

All issues were satisfactorily resolved during our dealings with Phil, Paulette and Miriam when we set about purchasing a new holiday home and selling our existing property in beautiful Cooks Beach.

Nothing was too much trouble for this experienced, lateral thinking team. Each went out of their way to assist however they could, beyond the call of duty.

Their service was much appreciated – and worth every cent."
