Recent publicity has been given to the Bay of Plenty region’s largest commercial and retail development underway at The Crossing.

This new centre, next to the Lakes residential area at Tauriko will be the new home for our latest EVES Realty office due to open in October.

With offices in Katikati, Gate Pa, Cameron Rd, Cherrywood, Bethlehem, Mount Maunganui and Papamoa our team provides unmatched coverage of the region. Each of these suburbs offers something different with property types to suit any buyer.

Tauranga’s population growth is particularly evident in the Lakes and Pyes Pa area as our city spreads to cater for a growing population. This is a pattern locals are becoming used to. Tauranga has grown by spreading rather than by increasing density. Over the last 15 years Tauranga’s urbanised population grew by 27%, while its urbanised land area expanded by 25%. In fact, Tauranga’s growth 'went out' more than any other New Zealand city this millennium.

Not surprisingly, this area has attracted a lot of attention from both local and out of town buyers.  The area has schools at all levels opening soon, world class shopping facilities not far away, is only 10 minutes from the CBD via Takitimu Drive and 20 minutes (approximately) from Mount Manganui’s beautiful beaches.

Our new EVES branch at The Crossing is strategically located so we can continue to offer a 'local specialist' service and experience that people have come to love.

One of our highly regarded management team members will head up the branch and manage a team of experienced agents. Excitingly, we’ve had excellent agents from other brands approach us keen to join this team and be part of its growth.
