About The Team
In 2012, Urszula left the corporate world and account management to start a career that would work around her young family and in an area close to her heart and home, Lincoln.
As the business grew from almost entirely word of mouth and referral, Haley Smith joined Urszula as a Part Time PA in 2017. With Haley at the helm of administration and customer service, Urszula was able to dedicate even more time to her vendors and the reach increased with sales further into Selwyn.
In 2019 Urszula was given an unmissable opportunity to go back to visit her roots in Poland. During this time Haley was very close to finishing her real estate qualification which she gained shortly afterwards. Haley was now able to help with buyer enquiries and viewings and soon started selling and building her own portfolio of clients. The business continued to grow – based on a network of ‘friend-ors’ (vendors who have become friends with Haley by Urszula’s side.
With the business continuing to grow, Haley jumped into being a full time agent and Amber Hill joined the team as our Client Care Manager. In this role, Amber manages the behind the scenes of our team, bringing calm to the chaos, and is always on hand to help our clients receive our award winning service.
We are proud of our team and the successful results we have created for over 100 vendors, and our Top 20 ranking within Bayleys Canterbury from 2017-2022. Through hard work and unwavering dedication to our vendors our sub-brand under Bayleys umbrella is looking forward to creating many more successful real estate for many years to come.

"The market is the market, it’s what we do in the market that matters" – John Bayley.
When Urszula started with Bayleys in 2012 little did she know that this one little quote would become one of the corner stones of her career. Urszula initially gained her marketing expertise through obtaining a Bachelor of Commerce majoring in Marketing at Lincoln University in the year 2000, never imagining that this quiet little village would one day would be such a large part of her life. She then spent years in corporate account management gaining practical experience. A career in Real Estate came as opportunity when Bayleys Canterbury asked her to join the team. Her reputation and business is entirely based on referral and word of mouth, and her business grew organically as her experience and family needs changed and evolved.

Client Care Manager
There’s a saying that “In the midst of chaos, there is an opportunity…” and it was this opportunity that Amber grabbed with both hands when she joined Urszula Bedggood and Team as Client Care Manager in early 2022. Amidst the ‘good’ real estate chaos created by Urszula and Haley, she has implemented robust systems and processes and provides endless solutions to the numerous situations that arise during real estate transactions and marketing.
Amber has had a diverse career path working as a baker (and still ‘occasionally’ baking for the team) and in Property Management, before being tasked with coordinating the day to day aspects of real estate transactions and advertising. In her spare time Amber can be seen out with her camera snapping some shots or hitting the mountain trails with her trusty sidekick Ruby – a Maltese who also occasionally supervises proceedings in the office.
