in te reo Māori
A Whangarei Heads house has been put on the market with an online listing in te reo Māori, and it could be a first for the real estate industry, the agent says.
Te reo Māori might have become one of New Zealand’s official languages in 1987, and the inclusion of te reo in popular culture and business is now widespread, but it is not commonly used in real estate.
But Te Wiki o te Reo Māori was being celebrated this week, and Ray White Whangarei agent Daniel Foote wanted to acknowledge and support it.
The Whangarei Heads/Parua Bay region was an area with a lot of cultural significance to Māori, and listing a property in the area in te reo Māori seemed like a good thing to do, he said.
