At the heart of everything we do here at EVES, it is people that are always our focus. Not just our amazing salespeople, property managers and administration staff, but you, our valued clients and the community we all live and work within.

Moving to Alert Level 4 to respond to COVID-19 in New Zealand happened quickly and we have all been impacted by this incredibly unusual global situation. Naturally we feel worried and uncertain about how it could affect us, our families, our colleagues, our clients and our friends.

How New Zealand’s lockdown will affect the property market is still unknown, things are changing day by day across all sectors of business. But we are continuing to work hard to get deals across the line and we still have active buyers and sellers.

This message is to reassure you that EVES continues to operate, harnessing our world class systems, infrastructure and communication tools. These enable our salespeople and property managers to continue to provide the highest levels of service to clients while working from home. Some things will be different, but critical things like reporting and client care remain exactly the same.

You will be able to reach out to us as usual via a range of media to stay connected, be heard and feel reassured that you are well-informed - phone calls, texts, emails, online meetings or social media.

Feel free to make contact with us if there is anything we can do to help you during this unprecedented time. We’re all in this together and we remain committed to staying strong yet vigilant to get through this and support you with your property requirements both now and when the alert levels reduce.

For now, look after your health, both physical and mental and embrace the good that you can find in every day. It might be a walk, a phone call with your children or grandchildren, a blue sky or a great movie. Stay positive through this challenging time as we all look towards a brighter, safer future for New Zealand.
