Recently I sold my latest property with Sharon. To say I was reluctant at first is not at all a reflection of her but more my mistrust in the real estate industry and previous experience with sales agents. Sharon listened to my doubts and concerns and showed a level of honesty and compassion I’d not yet seen in the industry. I decided to take the chance on Sharon and boy did she blow all my previous misconceptions out the water! Sharon approached the sale of my property with a confidence and relentless enthusiasm which really paid off. She handled buyer’s questions or objections with the ease of somebody with years of experience and followed up on each enquiry leaving no stone unturned. She shared her decorating & sales experience and gave me fantastic advice to prepare my property for sale. I am convinced I got the impressive price I did on auction day in no small part thanks to Sharon. From the very beginning she had an optimism and drive to do the very best by me whilst maintaining honesty and integrity the whole way through. She was flexible and accommodating but best of all she was down to earth and relatable. Sharon has an infectious personality that just makes you want to work with her, whether it’s buying or selling this is woman you want on your team. I had a fairly qualified idea of what I could get for the property if I were to sell privately, needless to say Sharon exceeded that figure by more than I could have imagined and more than any other agent I spoke with had indicated they could achieve. Sharon is not like other agents; don’t be fooled by her gentle or relaxed manner, this woman knows how to sell!
Michael Reid - Vendor 6a Solway Place
Sharon was super helpful, she gave me some extra private open homes and allow me to jump to the house just a couple of days before the auction and that was key to be able to bid with confidence.
She has a great sense of humour and know her job very well, super easy going and has experience renovating so gave me some extra tips & tricks, finally after a year looking for houses I finally have one.
Super happy with my purchase and with the work she has done
Thanks Sharon !!
Alvaro Uribe - Purchaser 316B Levers Road
If you want to sell a house well, feel supported and well informed all the way, list with Sharon! Her marketing and presentation skills are fantastic, and I'm still amazed at the exceptional result she achieved within less than 2 weeks. Going out of her way is not just a slogan - Sharon did not stop marketing, showing the property, striving to get the best result until the last minute. The sales price achieved due to Sharon's great work is beyond all expectations, and much better than the initial appraisal. Rather than stress, selling a house with Sharon was an amazing experience. 10 stars out of 5!
Hella Bauer - Vendor 316B Levers Road
Right from the start Sharon's passion and enthusiasm was obvious! Friendly and personable, Sharon went over and above to make sure everything was just perfect. Sharon came recommended to us and we can confidently now pay it forward and recommend Sharon to any vendor or buyer, you won't be disappointed. Thank you Sharon for making it such an easy experience!

From a buyers point we found Sharon great to deal with as she was honest and highly communicative with us!
Caleb and Jenaya - Purchasers 167 Fifteenth Ave
We met Sharon at an open home, she was friendly and knowledgeable. Sharon assisted us with phone bidding at the auction, providing great communication and a calm approach. A big thank you for assisting us to win the auction.
Susan and Stephen - Purchasers 11a Warwick Place
Sharon is a top-notch communicator which is why we will definitely only use her in future real estate matters. She says what she’ll do, she does what she says. She is honest, knowledgeable, and clearly cares about vendor and purchaser. Sharon clearly knows her stuff and is passionate about her job and we can’t recommend her highly enough! There are plenty of pretentious agents out there. Sharon is down to earth and real, not an ounce of pretension about her.
Sharon and Ian Chicken - Vendors 11a Warwick Place
Well that was different!
Has anyone else had the same agent SELL your house and find you another in 24 hours? Doubt it! Well our agent Sharon Blaikie did. As stressful as it was, she kept me calm, laughed with me and helped us navigate our way through to an amazing result. So exciting! Dont hesitate to call Sharon to sell your home... oh and we got beautiful pressies from her too!
Brian and Lee-Anne Fuller - Purchasers 517a Otumoetai Road
Right from the get go, Sharon was forthcoming, easy to get along with, and was clearly acting in the best interests of the vendors, while wanting the best for potential buyers as well. She was very real. I was very impressed with my experience with Sharon.
Jared Riseborough - Purchaser 56 Tom Muir Drive
What can we say! We have bought and sold many times in the past 19 years and lie in dread everytime! But, we had the best service, fun, advice, friendship and laughter on our journey with Sharon. Sold and bought with her and would highly recommend her to anyone who requires Professional assistance on their real estate journey. Thank you Sharon and Eves you were amazing.
Brian and Lee-Anne Fuller - Vendors 7 Briarley Street
Sharon Blaikie sold a property for me a couple of months ago. during this process I found her to be very capable and honest and did the hard yards for me. Because of this I didn’t hesitate to let her list another property for me. This proved to be an excellent choice as it was sold in about 10 days all wrapped up. I would recommend her to anyone wanting the most out of a sale.
John Young - Vendor 8a Dysart Road
Tired of real estate agents that do the bare minimum? The ones that don't know a thing about your property and don't give you free pens? Sharon will go the extra mile, will dig deep to discover as much as possible about your property AND will give you free pens (if you ask nicely). Sharon is open & friendly, funny, down to earth and has a great work ethic. We could tell from the get go that Sharon was going to do her absolute best and that she had the energy to do so. Sharon loves her job and the passion shows. Use Sharon. Sharon is cool.
Carla Beazley and Teejay Hemana - Vendors 56 Tom Muir Drive
Sharon was an amazing and friendly agent to have along on our journey to secure our first home for our little family. She has amazing knowledge of the market and was able to assist and guide us through the hot market to secure our home. She is very passionate about her work and always has her buyers best interest at heart. We are extremely thankful to have found her as she made the house hunting search a complete breeze!
Tom Martin and Katie Horan - Purchasers 181 Cheyne Road
Sharon went above and beyond to help me and my family find our new home. Before meeting Sharon I had wasted a lot of time following leads that weren’t suitable. She listened to our needs and quickly found the ideal house for us. It proved difficult to secure it but she remained committed to the end and helped me jump through all the hoops necessary until it was finally ours. The biggest thing for me in working with Sharon was that I knew she genuinely cared and so I was able to trust her. Thank you so much Sharon!
Charrissa Taylor - Purchaser 6a Lloyd Street
We are pleased to recommend Sharon Blaikie to anyone considering buying or selling a home. Sharon took on board our needs from the start and was very pleasant to negotiate with. She quickly built our confidence in her as a knowledgeable agent who would give of her very best to clients. She did not let us down. We sold extremely quickly, resulting in a very pleasing outcome for both purchasers and ourselves. Thank you Sharon. You did a brilliant job for us and we trust the purchasers enjoy our home as much as we have.
Ruth Lilian and Beverley Henderson - Vendors 5/492 Otumoetai Road
Sharon’s knowledge of the Tauranga market is incredible. She has bought and sold houses all through the area, and has extensive knowledge of the best areas to buy. She has given us honest and realistic opinions on all the properties we have seen, and has given us so much insight into the market. She was so determined to get us into a house, she went above and beyond to make sure that we got into a house that we love for a price we could afford.
Kate Milne and Sean Forbes - Purchasers 9 Bernard Street
We were very impressed with Sharon's realistic and honest and down to earth approach. Very professional in the way she promptly responded to queries and getting all necessary documents sorted. Just loved the way Sharon looks after her clients really shows they are valued as people first.
Kevin and Atawhai Frires
Sharon was absolutely amazing to deal with, she communicated openly and honestly every step of the way, her expertise shone through as she gave guidance through the process. She put us as at the forefront of everything, making it easy to take our time to find the property for us. Would highly recommend working with her.
Val Frires and Sharleen Tibby - Purchasers 43 Diamond Head
I have dealt with many agents over the years and was immediately impressed with her drive and skill level, the moment I engaged her to sell my property she had all wheels in motion, staging my home with her own furniture and accessories. Open Homes were great with good feedback. I feel she went above and beyond to get a good price for me.
John Young - Vendor 426a Otumoetai Road
When making initial inquiries about selling my house, Sharon, with her friendly persona, immediately put me at ease. She clearly explained the sales process and assured me of her 100 percent commitment during that time. She kept her word. Her knowledge of real estate was invaluable as she organised all aspects of the sale, including: staging, advertising, the contract, viewings, follow up phone calls, and written reports. In addition to her work ethic, Sharon's friendly, honest, and positive attitude, during a process that could have been stressful, provided me with a memorable and worthwhile experience. I am grateful for all her encouragement and assistance and recommend her to any clients looking for a sales person.
Leonie Bramley - Vendor 407a Ngatai Road
We had no clue where to start looking for a property, so we randomly went to a real estate agency, closest to our home, Cherrywood. There were three agencies and we picked EVES, because it was the closest from where we parked. Jumping to the conclusion, we were very lucky to meet Sharon at EVES. She looked after us to find our new home for about two months. Yes, it took a quite a while, but demand for houses in Tauranga was big at the time, most properties are by auction, especially the good ones. Also, our budget was limited with many requirements. She was very pleasant to work with, super helpful and prompt. Very hard working agent. Finding a home is exciting, but very stressful too. Sharon made us always positive with her cheerfulness. At the end we got our perfect home with her advice, the property which we thought we could never afford, but she urged us to view it and went to the auction and we won! What I wanted to say is that if you are about to randomly go to any real estate agency like me, you better go and see Sharon Blaikie.
Shoichiro And Natsu Ukawa - Purchasers 13 Matua Road
Having not purchased a house in nearly 20 yrs this current market was certainly more pressured and challenging.
I certainly was lucky to select my new prospective home and Sharon was the agent.
Sharon is extremely personable with professional knowledge, working for her client but equally her timely efficiency enabled me to work through process to secure my new home.
What was especially touching was Sharon inviting me to meet with owners post auction enabling a handover for both of us. I had never had that experience before with a house purchase but certainly was a great way to start life in new home.
Sharon Linwood - Purchaser 523a Otumoetai Road
Sharon is a thinker and a do-er and it was her genuine approach that impressed us from the first time we met.
She brings her eye for style and balance, matched with practical thoughts around design - and with a few simple additions and tweaks, our home won the heart of the new owner at the first open home.
We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Sharon to anyone considering an agent. She was always available, fantastic on feedback and a joy to have her work for us.
Thank you for your commitment and guidance throughout this process Sharon!
Ma te wa!
Rata Sidwell and Rick Henry - Vendors 523a Otumoetai Road
We ended up homeless due to the unfortunate situation where a vendor passed away mid deal, and the lovely team at Eves Cherrywood put us onto Sharon.
The vigour and energy Sharon put into helping us get into our home blew us away, she would not rest night or day till we got our house, with many a late evening catchup planning the next open homes.
Sharon has a wealth of local knowledge and understanding of the housing market, which came in very handy when we tried to veer off down the wrong path a few times.
Sharon is our real estate agent for life and I cannot recommend her enough to anyone wanting an awesome passionate agent.
Thank you so very much Sharon.
Shawn Fuller - Purchaser 26 Warwick Place
Sharon showed us through a property we were interested in. She was such a delight to deal with, very honest and genuine, a nice change from some of the agents we had met over the past six months in looking for a new house.
She guided us through the processes around the Auction and we were successful in purchasing the house. She has provided fantastic communication, I thoroughly recommend her.
Rowena and Matt Morgan - Purchasers 82b Esk Street
She led us from our garbled initial ‘wants list’, through the minefield of possibilities, culminating in a successful auction.
Listening and understanding our requirements, she found the perfect property for us.
Sharon was entirely professional on our journey and holds a wealth of knowledge in the real estate processes and local area information.
I could not possibly recommend Sharon Blaikie more if I tried, and I look forward to our future adventures.
