David has enjoyed a lengthy career with Realty Services Limited under both their Eves rural and Bayleys country banners
Along with many of his fellow Waikato residents David was attracted to the Bay of Plenty in his teens, not just to the sunshine, harbour and beaches, but to the vibrance within Tauranga and Mount Maunganui and the Lifestyle on offer to residents.
Having made the move to Tauranga, the next fifteen years saw David immersed in establishing and operating service stations, followed by a period spent developing a large Kiwifruit orchard in conjunction with a group of business partners, giving David a solid grounding in horticulture here in the Bay.
With an early-established passion for all things property, David was attracted to the rural real estate sector in the early 90’s, and it was here that he truly found his niche.
David’s encyclopaedic knowledge of both the properties and the residents of the Bay is truly impressive. His decades in real estate have provided him the opportunity to become familiar with a vast array of properties near and far. Chances are, if you’ve bought or sold a rural/lifestyle property anywhere between Welcome Bay and Katikati within the past thirty years, then David will be familiar with that property!
With his client-focused mindset, David is a details guy, and with as many deals under his belt as he has, you can be sure that the contracts he writes are absolutely water-tight.
David has enjoyed a lengthy career with Realty Services Limited under both their Eves rural and Bayleys country banners, and since transferring within the group to EVES Bethlehem David has discovered the joys of Residential Sales, his portfolio now boasting plenty of fantastic sales and happy clients in this sector too.
My SOLD Properties
Barbara and her team achieved the sale of our property after it had been on the market with another agency for some time and we were beginning to lose hope. Barbara and her team were professional and always available with reassuring words and practical guidance and advice. Barbara and her team maintained a state of calm throughout the sale process and offered helpful guidance around open home appeal and, when the time came, in considering offers received. We are so grateful to Barbara and her team for securing a sale of our property in a timely manner and allowing us to move forward with the next step in our lives.
I would like to take this opportunity and thank Barbara, David and Danny for the great work they did in helping my wife and I to secure our property of interest. Every question we had was answered promptly and if they did not have the answer they quickly found out which was great and the help enable us to make the decision we needed to make.
What impressed me the most was the after sales service I received, when so many others don’t necessary do anything after securing the sale. Here I need to compliment Barbara as she has been fantastic not only following up with us after we had moved in, but also promptly attending to the few little hiccups we encountered.
It is small things like this that count a lot in the long run. My wife and I will not hesitate to approach these very professional sales people when either selling or securing another property.

"Our first thought when deciding to sell in Bethlehem was to go with a local team, and Barbara, Ross & David became our team from Eves, Bethlehem.
We found them to be professional, helpful and reliable in all areas of their roles.
Though selling is not without its stresses, each member of our team made a potential problem one of learning and resolution. We were very grateful for their helpful advice and reassurance at the time.
Thanks to our team we sold our home relatively quickly and have now moved on to the next chapter of our lives.
Barbara, Ross & David you’re ‘the best’ in our experience. We highly recommend them to anyone contemplating a move!"

"We cannot thank Barbara, David and Ross enough.
They made the whole process of selling our home seamless and stress free from start to finish.
We found having a team to market our house really great, as they each brought their own strengths and extensive knowledge of the market to the table. Nothing was ever a problem and the lines of communication were excellent - we were kept in the loop every step of the way.
A very successful marketing campaign that saw multiple buyers through and a sold sign out the front after 16 days. Now that’s a result!
Thank you Barbara, David and Ross - we are so very grateful for all of your time and effort."

" I purchased my current home in 'The Lakes' area after meeting David, Ross and Barbara at a couple of open homes in Pyes Pa early 2021.
They clearly understood what I was looking for and called me a few days later saying that I might like a home that was coming to market later in the year and arranged a showing the next day.
This resulted in a purchase contract with a 9 month settlement.
David, Ross & Barbara ensured that the whole contractual process was smooth and stress free.
The new home on Lakes Blvd, is the nicest property I have ever purchased and absolutely love the area/location.
I can highly recommend David, Ross, Barbara and their team at Eves Bethlehem for any property transaction".
David Blumhardt and Barbara Sternberg were absolutely splendid in helping me to market and sell my house in Te Puna. Their approach was both very strategic and focussed from the start, which are the reasons I chose them over four other Real Estate Agency contenders.
The back-up service provided by Eves was beyond reproach as well. All in all, a very professional customer service from this team. Additionally, from a personal perspective, it was a stressful period for me after the recent passing of my husband, Barbara and David were particularly empathetic and supportive. There was no pressure to sell at any price quickly, which made the whole process emotionally bearable. They identified and recognised my needs and together we brought about a successful outcome both for myself and for the purchasers.
I have no hesitation in recommending this team to bring about a win-win solution.
David & Barbara along with Ross recently sold our property and they were brilliant, their professionalism made this such an easy period while the house was on the market also the manner in which the auction was handled was amazing and we got the price we wanted.
We have no hesitation in recommending David, Barbara or Ross to sell your property.
Paul & Linda Friedrich
David and Barbara recently sold our lifestyle property and were amazing. Their knowledge of the market and contacts really helped to get heaps of people through the open homes and multiple buyers into the auction room which got us a really good price. There were some challenges while the property was on the market, but they worked through them very professionally and got a great result in the end. I would have no hesitation in recommending David or Barbara to sell your property, they did a brilliant job for us.
I listed and sold my Te Puna property with Barbara Sternberg and David Blumhardt. They then found my next home to purchase during a challenging real estate climate for buyers. They were both fully focused during the sales period and were a pleasure to have alongside.
Barbara and David always present as ultimate professionals because they are! They ensured the standard of the marketing material was top notch in terms of both quality images and written descriptions which had flair and impact. Not once did I question their energy and effort to ensure a successful outcome for my family.
I would absolutely recommend Barbara and David to anyone wanting a competent, professional and dedicated real estate agent.
