EVES Realty - Real Estate and Property Management throughout Waikato and Bay of Plenty

“I’ve come back home - to Eves Katikati.” That’s what Kate said when she returned as Branch Manager to the Eves Katikati office on the corner of Jocelyn Street and the Main Road. This time round though she is delighted that Eves Waihi has also joined the family.

Kate has been in Real Estate since 1996 after having been in the travel industry for 20 years and owning a local Katikati travel agency from 1992 until 1996. She then joined her husband, Mike, in real estate in 1996, they went on to own a franchise locally from 1999, refranchising in 2009 to join the Eves brand. Being born and bred in Te Puna to a long-standing farming family, Eves had been a well-recognised brand that Kate grew up with and was proud to be part of. In 2015, after selling the office, Kate continued with Eves and the sister brand, Bayleys, as an Acting Branch Manager in the Bay of Plenty and Waikato looking after offices while the Managers went on leave.

Kate has always worked looking after people and helping them realise their dreams. In both the travel and real estate arenas Kate has been successful exercising her care and consideration of others plus putting in the hard yards.

• Consistently being in the top 2% of real estate salespeople in Australasia when she was selling and building a strong following with repeat and referral business
• During this time Kate took on the role of Real Estate Trainer and has extensive experience in this area
• Kate has owned her own real estate company and nurtured and looked after her highly productive and successful sales team
• Now as a Branch Manager she continues what she enjoys the most – concentrating on caring for her team and assisting them to reach their potential

Over the years Kate has trained a number of salespeople and watched them grow and move forward. Whether looking after vendors, buyers, salespeople or staff members Kate’s mantra is “Communication, Communication and Communication”. Listening to people, guiding, caring and encouraging helps Kate move her team, their vendors and buyers to what they most wish to achieve.
