The Robert Angus Real Estate story began over forty years ago. During this time Robert Angus has sold some of Taranaki’s most iconic properties from the Stratford Mountain House to procurement of the Plymouth Hotel site.

RARE was first established in 1985 with a strong independent culture. The new agency quickly rose to prominence gaining respect while achieving a high volume of sales. This success led to the sale of RARE to TSB Reality in 1992. A few years later Robert re-established the agency. The same approach led to the same success. In July 2007 RARE was brought by Bayleys Real Estate.

Since its inception RARE has been a proud supporter of the Taranaki region organising events such as the “Robert Angus Mountain to Surf Marathon” and numerous sponsorships including WOMAD.
