Service and Professionalism
Calming and pragmatic are good words to describe Steve’s approach to the selling process. He has extensive knowledge and repour with the Waihi community through his 10 years previously serving as a police officer.
In his earlier years Steve sold property in Cornwall, England where he was born, after a few years serving in the Royal Navy, Steve emigrated to NZ in 2002 and now lives on a farm with his family on the outskirts of Waihi. Nothing phases Steve, his varied life and work experiences ensure that he has plenty of empathy, kindness and understanding when dealing with his clients. He knows that life can sometimes throw you a curveball, upsizing, downsizing and relocating is something most of us have to face at some point. Steve understands that his clients need to get the most out of their assets within a suitable time frame so they can move on with their lives.
It was natural for Steve to start selling property again because of his passion for people. You will find that Steve will listen to you throughout the buying and selling process and is knowledgeable enough to problem solve effectively. Ultimately the clients that have worked with Steve so far have been ecstatic with his enthusiasm, professionalism, the way he has guided them through the process smoothy and most importantly how has achieved great results for them. If Steve sounds like the right sales professional for you, then give him a call.
So, first up - full disclosure. As a member of the Ambulance Service I have worked with Steve Cameron in his previous career since I moved here 10 years ago. I have also come to know Steve as a friend.
However, although helping a friend make his way in a new career may have played a small part in my decision to list my property with Steve, it was not the main consideration. I still wanted what everyone else wants, value for money from my agents and the best possible price for my property. To this end, I admit, I went to several agents in the Waihi area and had them appraise my property. There were varied appraisal values, and different pricing structures that, in fairness, undercut the costs of selling with Eves.
The biggest thing that made me list with Steve and Eves, wasn’t our previous friendship, it was his drive, his openness and his honesty. Steve has a natural ability to connect with people, to find out what they want to achieve and can use his knowledge of the best way to sell your property to develop a plan that can achieve it. As a vendor he communicates with you every step of the way! If you have a viewing, he brings you back quick buyer feedback. If there’s something that may put buyers off, he tells you. If your expectations are unrealistic, he will let you know. Communicating with Steve is a breeze, he has always answered any questions or queries quickly and in a way that makes the complex legal process of buying and selling houses understandable. These are some of the reasons why we chose to list with him.
Eves aren’t the cheapest, but you get what you pay for! Steve is motivated and passionate about property. When you commission him, he brings with him a wealth of experience from his colleagues at Eves. They work together to get the right buyers to the right properties. Through this cooperation, their combined knowledge and a great marketing package, you get just what you want – great service, great communication and a great price for your house at the end of the process!
Would I list with Steve again? Without hesitation!

We wish to thank EVES and especially Steve CAMERON for the sale of our property at 36 Gilmour Street, WAIHI.
Steve explained the process of selling very well and was constantly in touch with progress reports etc. We regard Steve as a great people person and would be happy and confident to recommend Steve to anyone considering buying or selling a property.
An Ode to our Steve.
We visited EVES with much trepidation
For them to sell our house was our expectation
Then along came Steve the ex pomme cop to our rescue
He said don't worry folks I will do that with ease
His stories of past sales and his five boys kept us entertained
But his expertise and ability was always maintained
He always looked very dapper with his matching jacket and vest
Not too sure about all the rest
Although his socks were a sight to behold
Yes at last he could stick up the sold
His job not finished he went the extra mile
Always with a wink or a smile
To begin he was just Steve, the guy from real estate
Now he is Steve our friend and good mate.
Thanks Steve, great service

I found you to be professional but also down to earth. You gave me the confidence and knowledge to have complete faith in the process. I now know more about the selling/buying process because of what you have taught me. Thank you so much for treating me with respect and being considerate of my situation.
I'm really glad we chose you and if anyone I know is thinking of selling I'll be recommending you without a doubt in my mind.
Thanks heaps steve
I met Steve Cameron from Eves Realty Waihi at an Open Home. He immediately impressed me with his ability to be both genuinely and openly friendly and very professional at the same time. I then encountered him at several more of his Open Homes and I was further impressed with his depth of knowledge of real estate. When I finally decided to buy a house in Waikino I was very fortunate to have Steve as my agent. He was incredibly helpful and nothing was ever too much trouble. He kept me fully informed and calmed by nerves when going through the process of making a pre-auction offer. I can’t thank Steve enough for his help and humour and I would recommend Steve without hesitation.
We had the good fortune to engage Steve Cameron from Eve Real Estate to sell our home.
Nothing was an issue, and we believe he went over and above to ensure we had a successful conclusion.
His Professionalism is definitely one of his many virtues.
We have no hesitation in recommending Steve to others , or using his services again.

We found that dealing with Steve Cameron for the purpose of buying our first home was a pleasure. He was upfront about the property that we were looking at and the process that we needed to go through. He was very helpful and friendly to deal with and we would not hesitate to talk with him again in the future if we were to look at buying another property or sell our current property.

Just a quick note to say a big thank you, for handling the sale of my
property in Waihi.
Dave and myself felt you went over the top. You were constantly updating
me on every aspect, which, when talking with friends who had enlisted
other companies did not receive to the same extent. I have informed many
people of the way you handled everything. You kept me fully informed and
updated from day one.
Even during Covid lockdown, you kept me updated by phone as to what to
Although you never met my Hamilton based daughter, she could not speak
highly enough about you either. She had been in Real Estate when living
in Perth for some years and commented many times of your attention to
You were very professional, but we clicked. And hopeful we have formed a
life long friendship.
Thanks a million Steve.
Steve and I met when I wandered into Eve's new office in Waihi to enquire about possible tenants for our property in Waihi that I half owned with my son Elliot.
Steve was friendly and easy to get along with. Without any obligation he gave me the details of a couple who had earlier enquired about a rental property in Waihi and suggested I might be interested in an appraisal of the property. Within an hour Steve came to visit the property. Although he had only very recently become a real estate agent he impressed me with his knowledge of the local market and his relaxed friendly manner gave me confidence.
We received our positive appraisal presented in the very professional way and this encouraged us to put our property on the market. All through the process beginning with our "round table" discussion on the sale price through to how we were going to market the property and everything in between was very inclusive and considerate of how both my son and I felt.
Very shortly after listing the property we received an offer for the property at the full asking price. We were delighted that Steve's work had resulted in such a quick result at the price we were asking. Unfortunately the sale fell through during the Covid-19 level 4 lockdown our purchaser was living in Queenstown at the time and we can only speculate they were affected by the lockdown.
As it happens we have taken the property off the market in the meantime until we have an idea what the future holds and Eve's are now managing the property as a rental for us which has been a very easy transition for us, thanks to them.
If we decide to sell our property in the future Steve Cameron would be the first person I would contact. I recommend his open relaxed manner and his high professional standards when it matters.
Just wanted to share with you how much we enjoyed working with you on the sale of our property.
Your knowledge and enthusiasm you put to great use in dealing with the public that came for a look. Your skills with people, sorting out a buyer pushed it across the line to a sale. Many thanks.
Terry & Julia
I really enjoyed your approach Steve and that first day with you was the most informative, yet relaxing, manner we had come across. We spent quite awhile looking for the right place and met dozens of agents but you, and then subsequently Kate, were by far the best to deal with.
Keep it up and you guys will make a formidable team 💪.
All the best and we’ll see you soon.

Recently I have had dealings with Steve through him being a Real Estate agent. Since I have been looking at purchasing a home in Waihi, Steve has been invaluable with his helpfulness and communication in making sure I have been well looked after.
