Professional and Personable
I believe every property and every person is unique and my professional and personable approach to matching the right people to the right home is my passion.
I have been a local resident of Tauranga since the age of 2 and have seen positive growth in our beautiful coastal city. Having lived on a life style block in Whakamarama for nearly 30 years, I have seen Bethlehem blossom into a sought after and affluent community.
Over the past 20 years I have run a business, together with my husband, in the building industry, where trust and empathy to my clients was of the utmost importance to me. I have also gained vast experience of Residential Investment Properties and Tenancies, where astute negotiation and problem solving skills come to the forefront.
10 years of working at Toi Ohomai (BOP Polytechnic) in the Information Centre, successfully assisting many local people into career changes, was a highlight of my career as it allowed me to do what I love most, and that is to be the ‘people person’ that I am and utilise my communication, listening and client interaction skills.
Not being one to do any task half heartedly, my overseas experience in Europe/UK/Africa/Asia went on for nearly 10 years. There is such a wealth of culture, history and knowledge out there. My competent, trustworthy and cheerful nature means I can guide you through the buying and selling process to help you achieve the best results of what you need and want.
My SOLD Properties
"I had the pleasure of working with Cheryl to sell my property. I was going through a difficult divorce and the house sale needed to be handled sensitively, and she did just that. She literally held my hand through the whole process. She supported me with every detail. I could ask any questions and she held my space when I had a meltdown. Cheryl is kind, funny, and determined. She will support you and your property will sell at the best price. I can't thank her enough. She made an awful time bearable."
Cheryl has so much energy and dedication to her job. We would highly recommend her as an agent either selling or buying. Her knowledge and understanding of the property industry is outstanding. She keeps you fully informed through every step of the process and gets the results! Her professionalism is second to none.
Tom and Pip Martin
Having a busy work life and a young family can be very stressful, but Cheryl showed us good locations and neighborhoods to purchase in, as she is clearly a Tauranga local. Cheryl explained everything and made the whole buying process run smoothly. We are very pleased with our purchase and thoroughly recommend Cheryl for her local knowledge.

Once again, I want to thank you.
It was a pleasure to deal with you.
You kept me calm and informed.
I could tell you genuinely cared.
I will definitely be recommending you, and you would be my first choice if I ever need any more real estate help.

I have known Cheryl for the past 20 years as her accounting advisor and friend.
In my dealings with Cheryl I have found her astute, competent, professional and trustworthy. Her friendly demeanor makes her approachable and easy to work with.
Robert Lee, Omokoroa
Cheryl has years of experience exemplified by her thorough and meticulous attention to detail and her ability to solve any project-related issues promptly and efficiently. Her extensive professional background means she can offer real-time practical advice ad direction drawn from uniquely personal experience. She understands the "big picture" from the ground up.
We really enjoyed working with Cheryl, not only was she naturally amicable, but she was genuinely empathetic and someone we could really trust.
We whole-heartedly recommend Cheryl.
Shane Luskie, Mount Maunganui
I have known Cheryl de Bruin for more than 20 years, working with her in a professional capacity.
Cheryl has an eye for detail and a meticulous approach to whatever she sets out to do. What she does not know, she finds out.
Richard McGechie, Avondale
I have worked with Cheryl as a supplier to her building company business since 2011. Cheryl is always a warm cheerful voice on the phone, on top of the transaction details she is positive and proactive in resolving challenges and changes.
Bruce Haycock, Henderson
I have enjoyed working with Cheryl on a large project and found her to be professional in every aspect. Information on time, good communication and direct clear advice and answers; something to be appreciated when relying on advice.
To be recommended.
