Listening and getting to know the needs of people has been a consistent part of Derek’s career.
Trained as a medical scientist with roles in the management of hospital services, his commitment then was for people and the community, and this continues to drive him today.
Derek’s broad array of life and work experience combined with his knowledge and calm professional manner, allows him to serve clients on every level.
This may be as an advisor, guide, negotiator and most importantly communicator, to make each clients journey in real estate, successful, seamless and stress free.
Community involvement is important to Derek. He has been involved in coaching Bay of Plenty sport, Tauranga Repertory Theatre, and the Arts Council. He has just completed three years as crew on Coastguard TECT Rescue and is Chairman of the Tauranga Maritime Trust. Combining his extensive experience of health and business management, Derek recently stood for election to the District Health Board.
Derek’s core belief is that clients comes first above everything else.
He believes that “You can never promise your best and not follow through, if you expect to develop the trust and respect of a client".
"Delivering his Promise" has been an unspoken commitment that he makes to his clients.
Following a recommendation, we commissioned Derek to sell our central Tauranga rental property in February 2022. As out-of-town owners, the distance can sometimes be problematic, but Derek made the process very easy. His initial communication was great, and he kept us updated and realistic right through the process in a turning and unpredictable market. Tricky times I can imagine for an agent, but we always felt confident in the the background work Derek was doing for us, to achieve the best possible result. Additionally he was more than happy to help with the staging process, a few repairs that needed doing, and even watered the plants!. The result was we received a realistic figure we were happy with at auction - the sign of a good agent I think. Thank you Derek for all your work and we would be more than happy to work with you again should the occasion arise.

We would like to say thank you Derek Roser for all you did for us when selling 64 Blake Boulevard Papamoa. We found Derek to be the most honest, hard working Real Estate agent we have dealt with. His integrity with his job is second to none. We will be recommending Derek to everyone who is thinking of selling their home. Thanks again Derek for the top job and excellent results.
Murray & Cath Gray
“ We contacted Derek to help us with the sale of my late father’s home. From the start Derek showed absolute professionalism, knowledge, care, and consideration. He answered our questions, provided clear advice in the selling process and we felt we could trust him in making the process stress free, and easy for us, especially as we lived in Rotorua. Derek’s service was exceptional, and his communication kept us advised and prepared for the auction. Our expectations were exceeded on auction day and we would have no hesitation in recommending Derek to any vendor or using his services again if needed.”

Selling my house with Derek was a great experience. His communication and professionalism was first class throughout, even during lockdown. I felt confident he would help me achieve my expectations, but he smashed them out of the park.
Should you be looking for a Real Estate Agent with integrity and honesty, who will do the best possible job for you. I know just the guy you are looking for:
His name is Derek Roser
I simply cannot offer enough praise for how he helped us. We have engaged his services a couple of times, and he has worked hard for us helping to get through several very difficult issues. He can build great relationships with his clients. We found him to be a very agreeable, patient man who is very skilled at negotiating.
Nothing phases him, and he puts in the hard yards to solve any problems for his clients, as he did for us. We have sold and bought through Derek. If we listed again, I would call Derek immediately!

Derek delivered an outstanding outcome for us on the sale of my elderly parents’ home. We were fortunate to have Derek recommended to us and from the beginning he showed professionalism, and patience with Mum & Dad. He gave us great advice on preparing the house for sale and he was proactive and immediately responsive throughout the marketing campaign. This helped Mum & Dad remain positive and calm throughout the process with him going above and beyond in his assistance after hours. He was easy to work with and we would happily do so again, and will be recommending him to other homeowners selling their property.
Carl & Angie Shillito
Derek Roser from Eves prepared an excellent marketing programme for our property. His advice and suggestions for marketing could not be faulted, so much so we had an offer three days after listing. Derek provided an excellent, professional service that we appreciated very much indeed. His direct contact for assistance with preparation for the market were also excellent. We were surprised how smoothly the whole process unfolded and thank Derek sincerely.

Stephen & Pamela
It has been an absolute pleasure to deal with Derek for our house purchase. Right from the beginning of the process he demonstrated a clear understanding of our ideal house and he worked hard to make sure we achieved our goals. I would recommend Derek and Eves Real Estate service unconditionally, thank you so much for helping us achieve our dream Derek.
Thanks so much for all your help with the purchase of my first house, as everyone knows its such a busy time and you have to act fast. But throughout the whole process (and my millions of questions) you made the process a breeze! Especially getting me in to view the property the day it was listed. Will definitely get in contact if I ever decide to sell or purchase again in the future.
I am so fortunate that I had the privilege of meeting Derek. I had at this point given up on finding a home, being under such a small time limit as I was due to go back to work overseas the following day. After one thorough viewing with Derek that he had organised in such short notice, I had found my dream home. Derek was extremely professional which gave me the confidence to go through with it even though I was set to travel. Derek was patient, kind and understanding of my situation. Within days, even whilst I was flying to work, Derek made the impossible possible and I had miraculously locked in my first ever house. I couldn’t have done it without Derek, he is such a fine representation of Eve’s and words can’t explain how thankful I really am.
I would just like to say a huge thank you to Derek Roser form the Eves team.
As soon as I met him at the first open home I felt that he was genuine and was going to the right person to help me find my new home.
He was and he did just that.
I have bought and sold a number of houses over the last 20 years and have found Derek to be the best yet.
He was kind and consistent. Great at communication and guided me through a process that seemed a bit daunting at first but wasn’t at all in the end. I really felt he wanted me to get a fair and honest purchase and genuinely cared about my situation.
I would recommend Derek to anyone and would contact him in a heat beat to help me and my family again.
All the best
We just wanted to say thank you for all you did for us when selling 33B Millers Road. You made us feel comfortable during this time when you knew it was a bit emotional for us.
We felt everything went smoothly and you kept us well informed with all the processes. We wouldn't hesitate to call on you in the future if we decide to sell another property.
Again thank you.
Ashley & Deidre Reid
Derek Roser looked after our elderly mother in the sale of her home. I cannot speak highly enough about the care and consideration he showed her, we were constantly kept informed of progress and the end result was outstanding. Thank you Derek!
On two occasions we have sold and purchased property with Derek’s expert guidance. In both instances we felt privileged to be guided & mentored by his knowledge of the current market.
He is extremely reliable, honest, and well organised, but above all goes beyond the call of duty to locate the perfect buyer for your property and find the forever home for you.
Derek is a true communicator in every way. He has the utmost respect of your situation, is always confidential, respects your privacy and space, but most of all he keeps you fully informed as the marketing proceeds.
We would have no hesitation in recommending Derek to any future potential client , you will find Derek will provide you with a positive enlightening experience.
Thanks once again Derek.
Graeme & Sandra Wallace
Trying to move to a new town is always a pain, and our recent relocation from Hamilton to Tauranga was no different, until we meet Derek at one of his open homes. Derek took an active interest in our house search and not only was able to capitalise on his colleagues listings from within Eves, but via his professional network, spread across the entire Tauranga region, enabled him to find a home which suited our family. Thanks again for all your hard work.
David & Diane
Buying a property with Derek’s assistance was a great experience. We actually met Derek on day one of arriving in the country and after discussing our specific needs he immediately started planning our new property adventure.
We had done limited research on our new city of Tauranga in the Bay of Plenty and Derek was invaluable with advice on suburbs, shopping, transport and even different building materials and styles.
Derek was very attentive on which aspects we liked and on what we were missing on each of the houses he showed to us. After not too long we eventually found exactly what we were looking for and at a reasonable price point.
Derek was effectively a fantastic tour guide for the area with the added bonus that we also found our dream home.
Dion & Michelle van Drunick

We have a high regard for Derek Roser and found him to be honest, helpful and reliable. He provided us with good advice and we recommend him to potential clients
Trevor & Shanaz Johns
A very big thank you to Derek Roser, for selling my home so quickly. Derek was very helpful, explaining every step of the process in a manner, easily understood by myself, and my son. I would recommend Derek to anyone who is considering selling or buying a house.
If you are looking for a real estate agent to sell your home then Derek is just the person having just sold our home. We could not find a nicer more helpful hard working person if we tried. He offered excellent advice to maximise the sell price. We felt he was a person of integrity and honesty who went out of his way to do anything to help us sell. He also helped us look for properties and found us the right one. Everything was made as easy as it could be. After the sale we felt we had a friend. We are happy to be contacted regarding this reference.
Tony & Sue Grubner
Mr. Derek Roser of Eves Real Estate was engaged in the purchase and sale involving an exchange of properties. Derek at all times during negotiations displayed a very professional approach in our dealings, showing a high degree of knowledge and confidence in all aspects of his profession. Throughout our negotiations he was ready to explain all aspects of the contracts and other documentation involved. He was always available when required. We conclude that Derek could be trusted to act in the interest of his clients.
Ray & Joy Willis
What made the most impression on us was your good advice on lights and dressing the house, your kind assurances that we were on the right track. As a retired Chartered Accountant I get concerned at the commission rate charged but in your case your earned every damn cent and deserved it. Our greatfull thanks.
Chris & Jane Railton
Derek recently worked with us to sell our home and you could not wish for a more charming, friendly, professional and hardworking agent.
The service and personal attention we received from Derek was exceptional and Derek always went that extra mile.
His high calibre professionalism, knowledge of the market and negotiating skills were key to insuring that we received the best offer for our home.
Thanks again Derek for a job well done.

Derek's friendly professional knowledge guided us through the sale of our home. He helped us with presentation ideas, negotiated us through some unexpected complications, remained positive throughout and worked tirelessly to deliver our sale within a limited timeframe. We would highly recommend you to utilise Derek’s positive attitude, good business knowledge and friendly manner to achieve the best outcome for you, as he did for us. Eves - Great company Better people.
Jo & Wayne, Welcome Bay
Derek was recommended to us by the agent selling our house in Auckland. We found Derek to be extremely helpful in our quest to find a suitable house in Tauranga. He listened to our requirements and made us completely at ease, finding us a property that more than ticked all the boxes. Derek helped us through the paper work explaining it all as we went making the entire process as smooth as possible. We feel Derek has become part of our family, and highly recommend him to anyone else looking to buy or sell property.
Bill & Joy Compton, Auckland
Our first contact with Derek Roser was at an open home. We were impressed with the warmth of the welcome and depth of information given on the property. As our interest in a property grew, Derek offered any additional help we might need and gave us an invaluable tutorial on the art of buying at auction. Together with his calm, open style and support, this was instrumental in helping us to relax and gave us increased confidence when auction day arrived. The result was that we could bid successfully and achieve the property we so keenly desired. His genuine support did not end at the auction but continued through the period between the auction and settlement. If this is what Derek does for prospective buyers just imaging what he does for vendors! It has been a pleasure to get to know Derek and we recommend him unreservedly.
Janet & Christopher Freeman Te Puna
Derek and the Eves team found a buyer within a week of listing with them after us listing for three months with another agency here in the Bay of Plenty. Derek's professional, friendly support, guidance advice on property preparation, communication and customer service have been exceptional, not only in selling my previous house, but even more importantly, in locating a new home within my price range to purchase. Derek delivers on his promises making one feel that he is committed to you personally. I would recommend him as a great agent working on your behalf.
Leon Whickham, Mount Maunganui
Looking to find our first home was a mixture of emotions including excitement, but we were also very nervous. We did not know what to look for in a first home and did not have the biggest budget but had big dreams. Derek was the only agent who helped us. He listened to what we wanted, and went out of his way to help us. Derek met us in the weekends to go visit open homes, talked us through the pros and cons of potential homes and provided us with great guidance and insight into properties. He helped us get a mortgage and at the auction, his experience helped us purchase our first home for an amazing price, and he was right there when we received our keys. We cannot recommend Derek enough will forever be grateful for Derek's help and without a doubt we will go back to Derek if ever we are on the lookout for another property.
