Helene Brownlee

Licensee Salesperson

Hélène Brownlee has been one of the top performing real estate agents on the Western side of the North Shore since her first year in the industry in early 2003.

Hélène recorded 96 sales in that first year and has continued to achieve top results for her clients ever since as the result of her outgoing personality, scrupulous attention to detail, deep, personal knowledge of the market and strong people skills.

Satisfied sellers, and there have been many hundreds of them over the years, have heaped praise on Hélène and the words that she values most come from a man who she did no business with.  He thought that he had to sell his home to take the next step in his life.   Hélène talked him out of selling and found another solution instead.  He has called Hélène his “trusted advisor.”

Hélène's personality and sales skills have been displayed nationally on the high rating television show, "Location, Location, Location." The producers of this programme used Hélène's stories for five successive seasons.

London-born of a French mother and an English father, Hélène has lived in the same neighbourhood since arriving in New Zealand in the early 1980s. The mother of three sons, she has long had an involvement with the local community, first as a pillar of the Beach Haven Playcentre and then as a Plunket Nurse, working with the newborn and their mothers.

That natural empathy for the family has translated well into the Real Estate Industry. Hélène is equally comfortable working with you toward the sale of your treasured home, as she was with the health and well-being of your treasured new baby.

Alongside Hélène is Richard Mason. He is an experienced real estate administrator and a registered auctioneer. Real Estate is a complex business nowadays with real estate professionals required to comply with a great many laws. 

Richard is an expert in compliance and so, with the combined knowledge of the management of the Damerell Group, you can be assured that the sale of your home will be in safe hands.

For a real estate relationship with a highly-respected real estate professional with a philosophy of trust, honesty and integrity and a record of results in your local area, call Hélène.

What people are saying

A brief sentence would not do Helene justice. We found Helene to be a great communicator, keeping us informed every step of the way. We worked together to develop a plan and when we got the 'speed wobbles' she reassured us everything was on track and under control which was what we needed. Nothing was too much trouble. Helene's professional and friendly manner made the process of selling our home as stress free as possible. Helene was recommended to us and we will also be recommending Helene to all our friends and family as she is, as Tina Turner said, "SIMPLY THE BEST".

Bob and Reiko

Helene is without a doubt the best real estate I have had dealings with (i have owned 4 houses now so dealt with a few). Her communication was top notch, she really did her utmost best to market the house, keep me informed and regularly updated. She was outstanding!

Julie-Anne and Peter

Helene is totally professional, made a stressful time easy for me, dealt with more than the average challenges with a burst pipe in the house, all while I was in the South Island. Helene literally managed and coordinated everything and juggled the numerous curve balls thrown her way. Her hard work and expertise really shone through just prior to and on auction day.


Helene operates with integrity, is responsive and honest. That creates a sense of belief and trust. These are essential for anyone in business and equally so when you're buying or selling property. Without these you're not sure if things are on the level or you're being led a merry dance.


Helene was amazing, working with some really complicated situations, always friendly, positive, and kept us informed with all the progress. She deserves a medal. Most of all, she has our deepest appreciation for all her hard work..

Gary, Patricia and Geoff
