My involvement in the property market most probably spans some 40 years with the purchase of my wife and my first home in 1974.
Spending the first 20 years involved in the shipping and transport industries here and in Australia, in 1994 I joined the Real Estate Industry. Within relatively a short time I was fortunate to gather together a few likeminded people and we forged a niche within the Tauranga residential sales market place as well as some pretty dynamic business brokers.
1996 in graduated with Massey University with a Diploma of Business Studies
and at that same time I achieved my AREINZ status with the Real Estate Institute of New Zealand which allowed me to be a fully licensed agent.
Academia stirred me on and in 2000 I gained a Masters of Property Studies with Lincoln University. All extramurally which meant my family didn�t see me a lot!
A ten year side excursion in the wine industry, still heavily involved in property transactions, was an experience to behold with lots of international sales and marketing as well as the consumption of some very fine vino.
Amongst keeping up with Business broking I joined Eves Realty with the purchase of the Eves franchised business at Katikati in 2011.
Even though I commute each day from my home at the Mount I count myself extremely lucky to work amongst a great little community and the mighty team of Realtors. At Eves Katikati we pretty much cover the full gambit of Real Estate work. Residential Sales, Lifestyle and Rural Sales, some business brokering and commercial sales plus a significant Property Management business.
Keeping high standard of service to our client/customers is absolutely paramount to me and subsequently my team are highly skilled and the required minimum REAA training is exceeded by all every year. We are supported by the large team of some 170 Salespeople, a very strong Auction department, Insurance and Mortgage services plus significant marketing/administration support staff that number in entirety about 500 strong. We have strong links with all the other Eves offices and together we cover the Bay of Plenty and the Waikato.
Although our (Katikati) geographical area is not a fenced one, in general we cover Omokoroa through to and including Waihi/Waihi beach and beyond. Big area yet exciting and rewarding.
Community involvement stretches back many years.
