Wayne and I purchased our new home through Leon and then asked him to sell our existing home. Leon was always the professional and through buying and selling Leon did listen to our needs and requests. Our sale and purchase was a little bit complex with the sale of 2 properties, but Leon was there for us every step of the way. I would have no hesitation to recommend Leon and Aja – they were awesome!

Thank you very much Leon and team for your excellent service!
I wanted to take a moment to applaud Leon’s performance. This is the 3rd home Leon has sold for me and I intend continuing our working relationship. He is professional, fair and a honest guy whom I believe is an asset to your company.

Leon and Aja made selling a stress less and easy time, we were well informed and advised the whole way and Leon was a very approachable person whom made you feel like your house was his only priority. Thanks for all your hard work team!
Craig and Chelsea
Leon was very personable, and although he was probably very busy, he took the time to explain every step of the marketing very carefully. Also, Aja did a great job with the written description of the property. The whole promotion of our property was done very well, and we sold at auction for the price we wanted. We would recommend Leon, as an agent, to any of our friends and anyone who might decide to sell.

I have recently sold my home on Papamoa Beach Road with Leon Santorik. From day one I found Leon to be totally professional, taking the time to personally work through the property appraisal with me and agree on a marketing plan.
His energy and enthusiasm are to be commended, showing numerous people through the house at a time to suit the buyer and the relentless manner in which he followed up on all leads.
His communication including detailed weekly reports and honest feedback from prospective purchasers was appreciated.
I would, without hesitation refer Leon to any prospective seller. Anyone can price match, however at the end of the day service, energy and enthusiasm are what is required to achieve an outstanding result.
We were at the stage of selling that we needed an agent that would guide us to sell our home, we wanted that person to be honest, professional but in a personable way.
Leon Santorik turned out to be that person, with his accurate assessment of the current market, marketing campaign advice and how well he prepared us for the possible outcomes. He kept us well informed every step of the way right till auction day when we were all jubilant to sell our home under the hammer!
Brenda and Scotty
Thanks so much for all of your help Leon. I think you're just great and I'm so pleased I got to experience such an exciting, successful auction in my lifetime. Who knows if it will happen again.
Haley Robertson - 226 Oceanbeach Road, Mount Maunganui
From our first meeting with Leon we were left in no doubt as to who we wanted as our agent to market the sale of our property and were not disappointed in our choice, as Leon was very personable, down to earth and totally professional and with the help of his team, never left us waiting or wondering at any stage as his constant communication with us was outstanding.
Thanks to his successful advertising campaign we achieved a very satisfactory price for the sale of our property on auction day.
We would have no hesitation in recommending Leon as a knowledgeable, skilled and profession real estate agent.

Thanks again Leon for all that you did for us. I would be more than happy to list with you again and would recommend you to anyone looking to sell their property.

When we first contacted Leon Santorik about selling 225A & 225B Range Road, Papamoa, we found him very honest, professional and friendly. He kept us very well informed and gave us good advice. It was a pleasure working with Leon throughout the process and he achieved a great result.

We would like to thank Leon Santorik for the most professional and smooth transaction with the very recent sale of our property. Leon constantly went the extra mile, and was extremely knowledgeable and professional throughout the entire process. We truly felt from the beginning that we could trust him and that he had our best interests at heart. We could not have been any more pleased and impressed, and we would thoroughly recommend his services to anyone.

We were absolutely thrilled with our auction result! We found Leon to be very thorough, and guided us through the process with genuine commitment. We would highly recommend Leon to any potential sellers who are looking for a motivated and genuine agent, you won't be disappointed.
Tim and Marcia
We decided to list our property with Leon because of his recent success in our area, and we are very glad we did!
Leon knew the current market well and gave us excellent advice on how to best market our property.
9 days on the market and we sold for an exceptional price.
Leon was very professional and communicated well throughout our short auction campaign. We would highly recommend Leon to anyone wanting to sell their property.
Mike and Jess
We recently sold our brand new house build in Papamoa with Leon Santorik. He was our first choice for an agent, as we had been recommended him by other friends and acquaintances who had great success with him selling their properties. The key things that set Leon apart from other agents we had used in the past were his transparent communication - we knew exactly what was going on at all times, and he ensured that every part of the process was explained clearly and thoroughly. He would ensure that every request we made was followed up on and he maintained a determined and professional manner throughout our auction campaign. We highly recommend him, as we know he works hard for his clients and definitely delivers on what he sets out to do. We will definitely be using his services again.
Riana And Michael Leaf
Million thanks for your service and business.
Well done. Really appreciated that we reached the reserve.
We should do more business in the near future.
Recently through Eves Real Estate I put my property on the market. The address was 202 Range Road, Papamoa. The agent I dealt with was Leon Santorik.
I wish to state I was very happy with the entire process.
Leon kept me well informed, and he was always quick to answer any emails and messages left if he was unable to answer immediately.
He was always happy to answer any questions I had and I felt very comfortable asking him any questions. He was very knowledgeable and at no time did I feel pressurized or that I was nuisance.
Leon predicted what he felt I would get for the property and he was absolutely accurate. I am delighted with the remuneration.
He also got my tenants a new rental property in what was a very difficult market with very, very few rentals available.
I was extremely happy with Leon and would with pleasure recommend him to anyone who is selling a property in the Bay of Plenty area.
He was professional + perfect in all he did. Many, many thanks Leon you were great.
Thank you for selling my property on Tweed Street, I am extremely happy right now. The clear communication, dedication to the task, and overall experience was superb. We can't thank you enough!
Well good morning Leon. I am still in a state of excitement and disbelief, I can't thank you enough. Again many thanks Leon, you did a great job. I’m a very happy person.
Thank you so much for all you have done for us Leon, you have been amazing! You listened to what we wanted and did exactly that - thank you.
Michelle and Grant
We would like to thank you again for your professionalism, advice and consideration when discussing the sale of our house. We were delighted with the result and would recommend your team to anyone considering selling their property. Your constant updates and phone discussions were very helpful and made it easy for us to take each step. We could not have asked for a more satisfactory result and thank you again for making the whole process easy for us and relatively stress free.
Best wishes and kind regards
Pam and Gerry Bredenbeck
Mate, you have done a bloody great job in such a short amount of time. I will bring you both a few bottles of wine from the South Island for you. Great job mate!
My wife Viv and I, have over the last 30 years, bought and sold a number of properties with the assistance of a variety of Real Estate companies and Agents. However the sale of our property in Papamoa in August 2015 stands out as the most rewarding on a number of counts.
We approached Leon and Aja who are Agents for Eves on the basis of a recommendation and referral made by a friend.
The things we liked:
Leon and Aja were thoroughly professional without being aggressive or pushy. They stated the alternatives and varying scenarios clearly and gave us in depth advice and guidance; but most importantly we always felt we were in control. It was our property and our decisions.
Their advice on matters of selling by Auction and using a professional photographer to market our property probably gained us an extra $50,000 when we sold.
We liked their low key style of communication. Nothing was too insignificant and they took pains to explain all matters simply and without fuss. We liked the fact that they treated even our most bizarre questions or concerns with politeness and seriousness.
Specifically they answered phone enquiries, texts or emails immediately and we felt that our property and we, were important to them. We weren't just a number or potential sale. They valued and respected us as people.
The Auction process was new to us and we were sceptical to begin with. However the Eves staff were extremely good at explaining the Auction process and we found the information evening invaluable. However through this process Leon and Aja were beside us supporting us through this final critical stage.
Why am I writing this Testimonial for Leon and Aja? Very simply because they proved to us that they are very capable, knowledgeable and genuine Agents but most important of all they can be trusted to do their very best for their clients. We sold our property above the Market price and within five weeks - what every seller of property wants to hear!
Martin and Viv Elliott
Having recently sold my house through Eves Realty I thank Leon Santorik for the help and professional way he went about the marketing which resulted in a prompt sale. I would not hesitate in recommending Eves and Leon should anyone be thinking of marketing their property'
Leon was a thoroughly professional, personable, and hardworking agent from the moment we met him until the day our property sold. He went over and above his call of duty, and delivered a sale price that we had only dreamed of before we listed with him. Thanks again Leon for all that you did for us, we whole-heartedly recommend you to anyone looking to sell their property
Leon offered us advice on the best way to proceed with a sale and was flexible with what we wanted, he continually discussed options to secure the best sale price and any openly discussed issues and came up with easy solutions. Through the whole process, he kept us up to date with things and informed us of any interest.
I was impressed with his work ethic and motivation, Leon often called in or phoned well after business hours to keep us updated.
Leon is a very approachable person, I have contacted him several times after the sale of our house with queries on property, and he always seems to make time for my continuous questions and makes further enquiries beyond his normal work obligations.
It was the personal little things that Leon did that made us feel more a part of the sale process, more of a friendship than just a business transaction.
I would recommend Leon without hesitation to anybody who is either selling or purchasing a home and I believe he is a credit to the company he works for.
Leon was my sole contact and a pleasure to deal with. I would be happy to either list or buy through him again
Leon was hands down the best agent we dealt with throughout the whole process and I was able to tell him so too.
It's a pleasure to make a testimonial for Leon Santorik.
Leon went well beyond the call of duty to ensure that I was offered the best possible remedial options.
He has good product knowledge and was open, honest and courteous. Which was much appreciated.
Leon has a friendly, upbeat and genuine nature. He effortlessly connects with all personalities and forms warm relationships.
Leon was my obvious choice of an agent to assist me with purchasing property and I found his professionalism and commitment to me as his client to be outstanding. Leon truly listens and happily goes that extra mile to thoroughly explore various solutions. His duty of care to his clients is paramount.
Leon is well informed and communicates effectively. His quiet determination, focus and commitment to succeed is reflected in his work ethic. He clearly works hard to maintain a sound knowledge of current real-estate.
You will enjoy Leon's friendly, warm demeanour, his compassion and honesty, his astute understanding of the market and the way in which he will work to find you the very best possible outcome. I can't recommend him highly enough.
We recently were in the market to purchase a rental property and met Leon Santorik from Eve's Papamoa at an open home. From the outset he was a good listener, seemed to quickly understand the type of property we were seeking and suggested we look at another property recently listed. The property was exactly right and we have now purchased it and are very happy with the outcome.
Throughout the whole process, from first viewing to settlement, we were impressed by Leon's excellent communication skills, keeping us in the loop every step of the way and advising us of our best options in order to negotiate a successful outcome to our purchase, which was in a multi offer situation.
Nothing was too much trouble and he arranged repeat viewings at short notice to ensure we had all our questions answered. Leon has a lovely friendly, personable and professional style and obviously gains great satisfaction from matching the right property to the right people. He has great people skills and we would not hesitate to recommend Leon if you are looking to buy or sell a property in today's market.
