Russell and Angela Thomas


Russell and Angela Thomas, from New Zealand Sotheby’s International Waikato are redefining how the best real estate is done, elevating expectations in service with a firm commitment to delivery. The difference is it’s not just lip service for this dynamic duo, they have the track record to prove it.

The husband and wife team have established themselves among the best property advisers in the Waikato, recognised nationally as 2021’s top salespeople at their previous organisation and also by RateMyAgent as the Agent of the Year for the Tamahere Suburb in 2021 and 2022, which is independently awarded based on public opinion.

It’s no secret that Angela and Russell have the talent to make one of life’s great stresses anything but stressful. Now this team are tackling a new challenge and that’s growing the prestigious Sotheby’s brand across the Waikato. The first New Zealand Sotheby’s International Waikato office is now open and can be found at 65 Devine Road, Tamahere Village, Hamilton.
