I joined EVES six months ago taking up the role of Chief Operating Officer, a newly created position. The role’s focus is process improvement and business development; along with the core platform disciplines of Finance, IT, HR and Property Management.

I’m fortunate to have been part of the urban drift out of Auckland into the regions. This theme is set to continue. This year to May 2015, 48,000 non-tourist arrivals landed in Auckland. Expats, migrants and residents of Auckland will look to the regions to improve their buying power when compared to the overheated Auckland market.

This is fantastic for the BOP region as new people not only bring a wave of willing buyers for property but they also bring capital, skills and experience, relocation of businesses and jobs in some cases. 

I bought at auction six months ago and strongly believe in this process having observed our auction room in action. Last week we had 18 properties up for auction, four sold prior and nine sold under the hammer with active bidding on the remaining properties. 

If you’re thinking of selling, talk to EVES today and take advantage of the great market dynamics and utilise our highly professional and transparent auction process that’s geared towards results!
