Since beginning her real estate career in 2002, Katherine has made a big impact on the city’s market in general. Having lived in Hamilton for 25 years, Katherine has an intimate knowledge of Hamilton, but, coupled her experience in the thoroughbred industry (as a jockey), she also possesses a broad appreciation of the Waikato region’s rural landscape and its villages.
She first joined the real estate industry 18 years ago, and during that time she has consistently been among the company’s top – salespeople. She has closed more than $350 million in real estate sales, and has sold upward of 700 homes.
Katherine has an infectious enthusiasm, is great with people, and has a formidable will to ‘get things done’. She has a charismatic knack for getting on well with a wide variety of people, and shows sound judgement of character.
She is certainly astute in assessing buyer intentions, and reads signals well. Katherine is tenacious and is a skilled negotiator, and when it comes to instilling a sense of ‘urgency to buy’ in people, she is the envy of many of her colleagues. Katherine adds value on behalf of her clients by possessing a sharp eye for presentation. She advises clients on the most advantageous features of a property, and she skillfully highlights these in her marketing efforts. This regularly gives her an edge over competition.
The above skills are also put to good use when pointing out the potential of a property in the eyes of prospective purchasers - providing ideas and thought-provoking opportunities that may not be immediately evident.
Property presentation is a critical marketing component, she says. Her ability to communicate opportunities has, unsurprisingly, assisted many clients develop dozens of properties. This has allowed Katherine to learn about, and gain a sound understanding of, multiple uses of land. “Often the best value for a property is found by thinking outside the square – experience is what provides you with this thought process,’ she says.
“My aim is to make the experience of selling your home as enjoyable as the outcome,” Katherine says.

A+ Real Estate Agent, Kath truly went above and beyond with the sale of my home and purchase of our new home.
From my perspective and past experience with Real Estate industry I feel that Kath provided additional support, guidance and staging to ensure that we got the best price possible for the sale of our home, and the outcome was well beyond what I could have imagined. Kath also supported us to find the perfect new home, and again her support and guidance with this allowed us to make a fully informed as well as the right decision for our family.
Based on past experience with other agents/agencies I was nervous re-entering the Real Estate territory, however Kath's support and guidance throughout this process has completely renewed my faith, you are definitely in great hands with Katherine Foster. Kath, thanks again for all of your help and making this journey such a pleasure.
We used Katherine Foster of Eves Real Estate Hamilton to sell our home of 47 years ,on the recommendation of a family member who had previously used Katherine in the buying of their house and spoke highly of her.
Using an innovative and comprehensive marketing campaign Katherine had a Cash Unconditional sale at our top price with 2 and1/2 weeks
She then totally supported us through the buying process arranging viewings of other agents listings,arranging builders reports etc and using her experience and expertise in assessing the many properties on the market,any pitfalls there may be and their appropriateness for our needs
Katherine has turned a potential stressful experience for a couple of oldies into a stressless,even enjoyable experience through her friendly nature and professionalism.

Being a real estate agent from Auckland I had very high expectation. Sean helped me furnish the property and mowing of the lawns as the property was vacant. I was recommended Sean and would recommend him to vendors wanting results.
Katherine and Sean held our hands through the buying process. We were both nervous but they provided us with great advice and made it easy. We viewed a number of properties and ended up buying a home under our budget. We love our home!
Louise & Don Braithwait
Katherine was a bundle of energy and made buying a house great. She was patient with our kids while we viewed homes which made us feel at ease. We recommend Katherine to anyone looking for an understanding agent.
We had an investment property that we needed to sell. Katherine and Sean gave us a realistic appraisal and marketing program. They kept us up to date and informed us of feedback both good and bad. They negotiated a great price for us and we would recommend them and have recommended them to everyone.
Katherine made the selling of our home simple. She was honest and gave us great advice on presenting our home for market. We were pleased not only with the result but how wonderful Katherine was throughout the selling program.
Stephen & Cait
Katherine recently sold our home and went above and beyond what any other real estate agent would do. From making us feel comfortable with the whole process to coming in and staging our home to make it look amazing. We would definitely use Katherine in the future without hesitation.
We engaged Katherine & Sean to help sell our rental property and what was the best way to approach the market, as it is or to renovate. Their honest knowledgeable advice saw that we achieved a fantastic result which was better than expected and they helped facilitate the tradesmen for us. What an agent!
Kerry and John
