Thank you once again for the excellent service and advice that enabled us to sell our Judea property, at a satisfactory price, in difficult market conditions

Great result working with the Phelps Team. Committed to getting the right result from beginning to end, outstanding communications and transparency. We never once doubted their ability to deliver the desired outcome and they proved to us they were the right people to work with. If you’re looking for someone you can trust, is honest and upfront, then they are your people.
Simon and Jill
We were very happy with working alongside Owen and Kristin during the process of selling our house. We found them to be extremely friendly, courteous and professional in all manners and we also enjoyed their total positivity and optimism. They were always available to answer any of our questions and were more than happy to have informative conversations about the process involved.
It took some time to sell but we knew that Owen and Kristin's marketing plan, including numerous websites, would provide maximum coverage and exposure. We just had to be patient that a positive outcome would eventuate.
Thanks so much for all that you did for us.

Met all my requirements. Communication for an offshore seller was excellent.

Listing, viewing, auction process and sale went really well. Communication was excellent, as was the relationship team Phelps had with our tenant.
Have used previously and would use again.

Owen has excellent knowledge of the real estate market.
He has an honest none exaggerated manor about him, which enabled me to feel confident in his advice and guidance.
He clearly puts his clients property sale a head of his own profit. His willingness to have potential buyers from all agents, and from all different companies, meant that I sold far quicker then with just his clients.

Owen and Kristin were very professional and maintained excellent communication throughout the selling process.

The Phelps Team were great during our buying process. Clear communication and were honest to us as buyers! We would recommend Kristin and Owen to sell or property manage your home. They are down to earth, trustworthy and relatable. They made the effort to help us and it felt like an honest buying process between us and the vendor. Especially for first home buyers. Thanks for all your help Phelps Team.
Ksenia & Tom
Owen and Kristin worked really hard to sell my house, which they eventually did for a satisfactory price. They were always punctual and pleasant in their professional capacity and most importantly positive when I was not. They "looked after' me as their client. I can recommend Owen and Kristin as agents to market and sell your home.
Julie, Tauranga South
Owen and Kristin were our agents from Eves Gate Pa and from our first meeting we knew we had chosen the best team to present and sell our home, plus offer outstanding customer service. Our house photographs for the marketing were unbelievable. We were kept updated weekly regarding viewing and open home feedback, website hits and market development. Any queries or questions were answered promptly. Four separate emails were sent regarding our pending auction and advising us about the process and what to expect. Owen and Kristin's attention and care on Auction day was greatly appreciated as it was quite a nerve-racking time. The successful sale of our house was a joint venture between Owen, Kristin, Auctioneer and negotiator. Customer service continued beyond the sale of our house until settlement and beyond. We would wholeheartedly recommend, for selling or buying your next home, the Phelp's team from Eves Gate Pa.
Peter & Valerie, Ohauiti
My wife and I recently went through a process of selecting a real estate team to help us sell our lifestyle block in Pahoia and after due consideration of three assessments it was an easy decision in the end to select Owen and Kristin from Eves. Having now sold our property for a price that we are very happy with and in an incredible ten days we would have no hesitation in recommending Owen and Kristin to anyone looking for a great real estate team to make the process easy and get a great result. Thanks Owen & Kristin.
Russell & Kim, Pahoia
Owen and Kristin as "Team Phelps" sold our Otumoetai family home and we note that they were the "Top Achievers" for their Gate Pa office for 2020. This is some achievement in such a competitive market place. We were very happy with the result they achieved for us and thank them both sincerely for their integrity and honesty and the fact that they really do have their clients as a top priority. We have no hesitation in recommending them to prospective buyers and sellers.
John & Lorna, Otumoetai
The success of "Phelps Team" in selling our property was phenomenal. The house was listed and three days later it was sold for a very realistic figure. We cannot speak highly enough of Owen and his sales team in this achievement and the attention and commitment shown.
Don & Carole, Pyes Pa
We were very happy with the outcome of the sale of Mum's property. I particularly was impressed with your knowledge of the market and your unassuming sales approach towards us. This of course made for a very stress free time that we were on the market. Thanks again, Owen & Kristin, and all the best for the future and a happy life.
Joy, Bev & Gay, Greerton
We were very happy indeed with the friendly and efficient service we received from Owen and Kristin. We would have no hesitation in working with the team again in the future.
I first met Owen & Kristin when they were marketing a neighbour's house and the first thing I was impressed by was their friendliness and open manner. When it came time to sell my house, I remembered them and got in contact with Owen and another agency. Eves presented the appraisal to me that week, whereas the other agency promised three times for presentation and each time they let me down.
Owen and Kristin did open homes every weekend until my house sold as well as bringing potential buyers to the house at different times. They always gave me notice to protect my privacy and worked in with my schedule. I was confident that my house was in good hands during viewings which is essential for peace of mind.
At all times Owen and Kristin were respectful and they both have a wonderful sense of humour, and I was delighted to receive my lovely gift when my house sold.
It was a pleasure to deal with them and I have no hesitation in recommending Owen and Kristin to any potential sellers or buyers.
Thank you for doing such a great job of selling our property. We appreciated your efforts and professionalism, you are a great team to work with. We would not hesitate to recommend you to others and will certainly be our choice for handling our home when we are ready for the next move. Thanks again for everything.
Chris & Gwen, Matua
Thanks to Team Phelps for their good marketing and relaxed manner. It made the sale of our home a pleasant experience. Will recommend you highly.

Owen and Kristin made our purchase on Hollister Lane stress free and were so helpful with our requests. We would love you both to call us and come for a drink and see the wonderful changes we have made to an already lovely property. With thanks.
Max & Julie, Ohauiti
I have no hesitation in recommending Owen and Kristin to potential clients. They were thoroughly professional and kept me updated regularly on all aspects of the sale of my property, ensuring a successful outcome. Many thanks!.
We got Owen and the team at Eves to sell our house as they were recommended to us. We found them friendly, helpful and efficient and sold ou house in three weeks. Would certainly use them again.
Craig & Cary, Tauranga South
Team Phelps are fabulous. They kept me up to date during the process, had my best interest as their priority. I refer all my people to them.
We have just sold two homes in Tauranga and once again Team Phelps have obtained excellent results. Owen and Kristin are very easy to work with and always keep us informed on progress. No hesitation in recommending them whether buying or selling.
John & Anne, Pyes Pa
Owen and Kristin made selling our home stress free. Words cannot express the support and kindness they gave us. Great people to work with.

Owen and his team were a pleasure to work with. Very professional & communication was good. The whole process was made as simple as possible at a very stressful time.
Heidi & Willie, Pyes Pa
We can't thank you guys enough for the way you presented our Mum's house on the market to get such a great sale at auction. You have also made it as painless as possible for us in dealing with her passing at the same time. We would not hesitate to have you market our own homes should we choose to sell or to recommend you to anyone else. Your name is up there at the top with the best of the best of real estate agents.
Hey Owen and Kristin, thanks for selling my house even though we had to work around baby sleeping and toddler too! Hey, but we did it. Talk about teamwork!! Thanks so much Owen and Kristin. It's been a pleasure.
Mischelle, Tauranga South
Owen and his team made the whole process very easy. It felt like we hardly did anything between listing the property and getting the sale. Happy with the outcome too.
Tara & David, Ohauiti
We recently had the pleasure of working with Owen and Kristin when selling our property. It had been on the market for three months with very little interest and yet, with no changes to the property or presentation, this Top Team had us Sold and in only a further three weeks. We were expertly advised along the way and I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending this team to get your property sold.
Keith & Andrea, Ohauiti
