We couldn't be happier with the exceptional service provided by Gary Lee. His dedication, honesty, and tireless work ethic truly sets him apart. We highly recommend Gary to anyone looking for a trustworthy and hardworking real estate agent who truly cares about their clients' needs and achieving a successful sale.
A Joe & J Gasteen
Gary has a gentle manner, but a core of steel when needed. His particular strengths were, following up on interested buyers and communicating with the vendor, using his strengths as a banker to provide confidence around all financial aspects and communicating sensitively with interested parties in brokering a deal. In a difficult market, Gary did not waver in his commitment to the task. We highly recommend him as a competent agent who gets results.
S & S Armstrong
Eve’s salesperson, Gary Lee, recently led the sale of our house in Tauranga in record time, considering the nature of the house, the high number of houses on the market and the recent downturn in prices.
Our success was largely due to Gary’s excellent organisation and enthusiasm. At all times he was very thorough and professional, accompanied by a very friendly and open disposition. He inspired confidence in his ability to effect a good sale.
G & J Bryant
"We can't thank Gary enough for helping us sell our home. We are truly so grateful he was entrusted with our sale. He treated the whole process with the utmost professionalism but also genuine care. He listened, he cared and he worked hard to make it happen. Gary not only sold our property, but we were lucky enough to have him help us find our new home. We will never forget this journey. Thank you so much."
Z Hunter & H Beard
We recently sold our home in the Lakes with Gary Lee. From the moment Gary met with us we knew we were in the very best of hands. Gary’s gentle way in which he walked us through the process, took what was initially a pretty daunting task and made it into something we could not only understand but truly get onboard with. No task was too small, from helping us to view other homes for sale, to getting our own home ready for sale, Gary was the consummate professional. He had expert, gentle suggestions that we could take or leave and we knew that every suggestion he made, he did because he truly cared about a great result for us. Every option available was presented, but never with any pressure, so we felt as though not only was each decision our own to make, but Gary made us feel as though every decision was the right one. That’s not to say Gary didn’t guide us where we needed it, we certainly weren’t the experts and relied heavily on Gary’s exceptional knowledge of the area and what sales were doing in our region. Gary not only found out about why were selling and what we wanted to do next, he genuinely cared why. So much so that by the end of it, he truly felt like whānau. Gary had met our parents, kids, siblings and had even been a “surrogate” to our dog whilst we disappeared for Open Homes by the time we sold our home. We always got great updates on where things were at, the good and the not so good, but the balance is what made us know that we had a real straight shooter. Gary’s communication with us throughout the entire process made us truly feel safe and secure in the knowledge that our home would sell. Even after our home sold, Gary’s manaakitanga (kindness and support) meant that he regularly kept in touch with how we were going in terms of moving, was there anything he could do to help, he even gave us the name of one of their Rental Agents to help answer our questions. Gary also visited us in our new rental once the dust had settled, just to see how we were going and to formally congratulate us. Gary’s sense of community and ensuring we were always ok where we were in the process was absolutely second to none, our only regret is now that we’ve sold our home we won’t have that same connection. Gary is truly a hidden Gem in Tauranga, you would be lucky to have him as your agent and we cannot recommend him highly enough.

T & S Richardson
It's difficult to find words to express my gratitude for what Gary did for me, in his role as my agent.
The word that comes to mind is exemplary.
After enjoying life at the Mount for 21 years, I was reluctant to be downsizing & moving on, by myself, as the task seemed daunting.
In August I received a call from Gary saying he had 2 homes I might be interested in viewing,
(I hadn't looked at any other homes yet!)
Little did I realize that two weeks later I would be signing for one, which was to become my dream home, in a lovely area with a great neighbourhood.
Gary's qualities of intelligence, respectfulness, patience & going the extra mile gave me the trust & confidence to list my Mount house with him too.
Between buying my house & selling, the time frame was 56 days & looking back it seems painless!
I would highly recommend Gary to everyone....in fact I am.
Gary has been such an absolute pleasure to deal with.
Selling my first ever property in Tauranga whilst living in Christchurch and during a pandemic was always going to be a challenge, however Gary made the process so seamless and stress-free.
With modern technology and zoom meetings, I had lots of opportunities to ask questions, and Gary would always answer quickly and honestly.
He often went above & beyond to help me organise minor works in order to get my property in tip top shape for auction day, which was evident by the amount of interest.
I felt like I was kept very well informed throughout the entire process, and the additional auction videos that Eves provide were most helpful at putting my mind at ease about what to expect through the auction process.
It just reconfirmed I made the right decision listing with Gary and Eves, and I was extremely grateful for the outcome on the day.
I would highly recommend Gary to anyone!
Gary acted for me when I listed my house for sale. Gary was knowledgeable, organised and approachable. He was calm and diligent. His communication was excellent. He was pleasant and friendly and he was always available to answer any questions I had. Gary showed a huge amount of professional and personal integrity and was dedicated to selling my house. I could not have wished for a more successful result on auction day. I certainly would not hesitate recommending Gary to anyone who's wanting to buy or sell a property.
We appreciate Gary's sensitivity to our purchasing ability and him sharing his crystal ball (aka local knowledge) enabled us to make a practical and realistic decision in purchasing our first home. For answering all our after-hours phone calls to calm the nerves, to taking the time to show us to property multiple times, and for allowing us space and time to sift through our cards - your advice was accurate, honest, and confident. Thank you Gary for all the work you did with and for us. We are elated with our purchase and would highly recommend your business.
