About Penny


Real estate professional Penny Kempton knows the coast better than most. As a resident of the Tutukaka coast for more than 45 years, she has been a tireless and passionate advocate for both the area and its people. This means that Penny well understands those who live on the coast and what they want when they look to sell or purchase homes. Her huge expertise of coastal property and the local region is hard to beat and results in outstanding outcomes for her clients. 

Penny offers nearly two decades of real estate experience. She brings a background in psychology and has owned businesses in hospitality. This means that Penny knows how to read people and situations with ease so she can take her clients on a stress-free and seamless real estate journey, one that leaves everyone with a smile on their faces and a happy outcome.  

Penny is proud to be a true vendor agent. She works hard and for her clients, not herself. Needless to say high levels of customer service are assured. With an honest, reliable and trustworthy approach, Penny has a history of hugely satisfied clients and a great sales track record. She has a straightforward approach and her word is her bond. It’s no surprise that word of mouth referral is a strong source of business for Penny and she is more than happy for people to speak to any of her previous clients for their feedback. 

Penny has always used her boundless energy, integrity and positivity to improve and grow the services in the region for the betterment of locals. In her community she is well known for her philanthropic involvement including setting up the Whangarei Migrant Centre and doing pro-bono work for the Alzheimer’s Association in Whangarei.  She also has a huge thirst for adventure, once circumnavigating the world in a sailing boat, indicating her ability to tackle any challenge.  Other favourite pastimes include spending time with family and friends, reading, travelling and gardening. As a founding organiser of the famous Coastal Kitchen Tours, Penny knows many of the local homes and their owners. 

Penny knew that she had found something very special when she came to Whangarei all those years ago and every day since this view has been reinforced. Penny owns a large waterfront property herself so she focuses predominantly on selling coastal and waterfront property for her clients, as it’s the market she has a high degree of expertise in – both personally and professionally.
