Conscientious, Caring, Professional - Helping You in a Changing Market
Welcome to my page!
While borrowing is still relatively cheap, obtaining finance for a property purchase has become a real challenge for buyers, resulting in a market with decreased demand. This inevitably leads to a flattening in price growth, and possibly even a drop in prices.
This isn’t necessarily as scary as it sounds – price drops are predicted to be modest, and, given the huge increase over the past couple of years, sellers are still likely to see good values.
This is when my knowledge and experience really comes to the fore - I love working in a challenging market! This is the time when you really need someone like me to help you through the hoops and hurdles.
I look forward to working with you!

Our family has known Jackie for many years (since our children moved to NZ decades ago!). Jackie has always impressed as being expertly knowledgeable on all matters Real Estate. She delivers a friendly, effective service all the time, nothing is too much for her.
What particularly impressed us with the recent sale of our Tauranga house is Jackie taking time to explain the different steps in the sale and auction process, and keeping us informed every step of the way – even after we had vacated our property for staging…And then she stepped in with supervising and assisting the cleaners, stagers, and keeping our family informed by emails, texts, and video calls. She even went out of her way to assist the potential new buyers. Thank You Jackie.
Dave and Beaty Naude
We have known Jackie since we moved to NZ years ago, when she was referred by a mutual colleague, and tried hard to find us a new home. Jackie recently sold our Tauranga home, and provided valuable advice and referrals to people who could assist us in readying our much-loved home. This helped us achieve a fabulous price in good time. Jackie is knowledgeable and takes time to explain all the processes - the pro’s and con’s of the Sale Process, and keeps you informed every step of the way. You know your home/most valuable asset is in good hands when Jackie is on the scene, with the expert backing of the excellent EVES Tauranga Team. We have absolutely no hesitation in recommending her Real Estate Services to potential Vendors and Buyers.
J & C
"I would like to take this opportunity to thank Jackie Fothergill of Eves Realty Limited, for the wonderful job done selling my section down in Tauranga without ever having met personally and just spoken on the phone and email correspondences.
From the initial conversation to listing, AML requirements, marketing plan, ad script write up, signage, weekly progress report, informational auction videos in three parts leading up to auction, comparative market analysis weekly and eventually selling, Jackie really made the process seamless.
I knew what the challenges were in selling my section and, with not much interest leading up to auction, I was thinking of pulling it out of auction but Jackie guided me with the right information and her experience in the industry which resulted in "SOLD" under the hammer on auction day at a good price in the current market.
I really wish Jackie was operating in Auckland for my other businesses. I highly recommend Jackie and her team at Eves Realty Limited to utilise their services should you be thinking of selling.
I will be more than happy to give verbal reference as well for Jackie's performance on 021-426-374."
"Profuse thanks for all of your most generous help and support! Without your unstinting efforts, I doubt I would have coped."
"The fact that I have used Jackie's services for the sale of 6 homes and the purchase of 5 over the past 20-odd years probably says a fair bit about my opinion of her! Throughout all of these transactions I have found her to be completely transparent, with my best interests at heart. She isn’t after the “quick buck” but is focused on providing the best service possible. She is always willing to advise or suggest without being pushy and I appreciate her honesty, integrity and professionalism. I have no hesitation in recommending her services, whether you are buying or selling."
Carolyn Wilson (Vendor and Purchaser)
"As overseas vendors we were very apprehensive about committing to the auction process. However your proficient expertise and continual communication was very reassuring. Your genuine desire to achieve the best for us, along with the businesslike manner in which you dealt with our legal representatives made the whole situation as stress free as possible.
Again we thank you for your efforts - it was a mighty fine job you did. A few words in an email cannot adequately convey our gratitude. You, (and Martin) have always exceeded any hopes and expectations we have had when working with you over the years and it has always been such a
pleasure dealing with you."
Val and Barry Nicol
"Nearly 20 years ago we described to Jackie what we envisaged for our 'dream family home' and find it she did. Now, with our two fledglings having flown the nest, it was without hesitation that we entrusted her to find the next lucky folk to live in and love our home. She marketed our house with enthusiasm and integrity. We were kept informed both verbally and in print of events at every stage and at no point did we feel that we were under any sort of pressure. In fact the whole experience was pain free and without the support of Jackie and her team we would have been lost. The Eves Auction process was much less stressful than we ever imagined and at all times we felt that they were acting entirely in our interests. We are obviously more than happy to recommend this fine lady to any of our friends and acquaintances and anyone who needs an excellent agent."
Martin & Cecily Horne, Tauranga
"We really appreciate all the efforts you made to sell our home. Your friendliness, integrity, patience and even-temperedness are second to none. Thank you so much."
Sharon Parker, Vendor
"Jackie came to us on a recommendation from another happy client and she more than fulfilled the promise. She was prompt, keeping to all agreed timelines without pushing and was thoroughly supportive, professional and trustworthy in her marketing of our place. Also, a very nice person!"
Evan Turbott, Vendor
"Jackie made us feel totally at ease, at no time did we feel pressured or out of control of our house sale. We are delighted to have achieved a sale and be able to move on, thank you Jackie!"
Bob & Prue Wilesmith, Vendors
"To say that I was impressed with Jackie's performance would be an understatement. The complete operation was handled flawlessly. I would have no reservations in recommending Jackie's services."
Gwyn Tavener-Smith, Vendor
"I live in Australia so being able to co-ordinate the sale of my property without having to be in New Zealand was a task in itself. I had known of Jackie as a very good agent when I lived in Tauranga. I have now had first-hand experience of the service you can expect when you engage her as your agent. With her dedication to the industry and her knowledge all-round I have no doubt that she will continue to help many other lucky people like me."
