A rural agent that understands the sector personally and professionally

Ike Unsworth brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to his role as a licensed real estate salesperson specialising in lifestyle and country properties with the highly-respected Bayleys Real Estate brand.

Guiding you through the selling process

Through the extensive network Bayleys has created and my expertise in the rural and lifestyle sectors – I will be on hand through the entire process of selling your property.

A long-time local, Ike is from a reputable farming family who have an extensive history reaching back over more than a century of sheep and beef farming in the Bay of Plenty region. His rural upbringing underpins the significant credibility and expertise Ike brings to his professional role in marketing and selling lifestyle and country properties.

A former New Zealand representative show jumper, Ike’s outstanding track record of national and international accomplishments included his being awarded a select Air New Zealand Olympic scholarship in 2006.

Ike’s earlier career was dominated by roles in farm management, agricultural contracting and manufacturing – all running in tandem with his considerable investment and involvement in the racehorse and show jumping industries.


Reinforced with this pedigree, Ike conducts his real estate business with the same high-energy drive, competitive approach, a focus on quality, innovation and delivering a first-class client experience. Since he launched his real estate career in 2016, Ike has secured outstanding results in a sector of the market where he is already highly-regarded. His approachable, down-to-earth manner puts owners at ease and are reassured they’re in safe, capable hands when they entrust him with their properties and their livelihoods. It’s a commitment that Ike takes seriously.

By harnessing the power of the systems and resources of the Bayleys group, he taps into one of the largest field-specific databases and associated networks in New Zealand. Countless numbers of his buyers and sellers have been the beneficiaries of this.

A down to earth guy who loves all animals and the Kiwi outdoor lifestyle, Ike is still very much involved in the equine industry. Ike continues to operate a successful boutique breeding and competition operation, catering to the international show jumping market.

When we purchase again will be calling Ike first

My husband called Ike regarding a house to buy and Ike was clear and concise, so we knew where we stood. A deal was made on the spot of viewing and we had a super fast turn around which worked for us and the vendor and made for a quick and successful sale. We were kept up to date throughout the process and settlement day was one of the best ones yet, with only pleasant surprises! When we purchase again will be calling Ike first.
