Realty Services (Eves/Bayleys) Overall Salesperson of the Year 2010
Those who know Chris know he's no stranger to hard work. Starting his real estate career in the tough market of 2003, Chris was Eves Realty Limited Rookie of the Year in 2004/2005 and since then Chris has cemented his place in the industry and gained the reputation of being one of Tauranga's most successful and customer focused agents by maintaining his position in the top 2 salespeople within Eves Realty Limited every year since (approximately 200 Salespeople). Apart from
relinquishing the title briefly in 2010, Chris has consistently been the Eves Top Auction Marketer and ASB Auction Cup Winner every year since 2007.
However, it's not the awards or the recognition that drive Chris to excel in real estate. It is the passion he has for the industry and the people he meets along
the way. Most importantly, it is his fundamental belief that it is extremely important to "Do what you say you are going to do." Put simply, to Chris the words honestly, integrity and results underpin the way in which he conducts himself, his business and his relationships with his clients which is one of the very reasons why so many people hire him to sell their property.
Chris has a wealth of knowledge and experience and he's well known for his friendly, no nonsense and straight forward approach.
In his own words Chris says "When so much can be at stake for my clients, I feel it's my responsibility to tell them what they need to hear to put them in the
best position to make informed decisions, which is sometimes not what they may want to hear."
Coupled with proven strategies and a game plan that best fit their needs plus the grit and determination to succeed when the going gets tough means he's able
to coach them though the journey that will enable them to achieve their goals. His approach has earned a great deal of respect from Solicitors, Lending Institutions, Registered Valuers and other industry professionals and is clearly why so many people refer business and come back to him again and again year after year.
That means you can rely on Chris to do the right thing by you putting you in the best position to make well informed and timely decisions so that you can achieve what the sale of your property will allow you to achieve.
The selling of our house through Chris was so professional and stressless that it felt like "one day we listed and next day the money was in the bank." This was achieved by Chris's calm and diligent approach. We were constantly kept in touch beyond expectations. His knowledge of the market was most reassuring and correct. Finally both of us were rewarded with a sale price well above expectation. We have no hesitation in recommending Chris Royal as your marketing agent . As a vendor you will have no regrets. We offer to Chris and his marketing team a big thank you for their diligence and and effort which was instrumental in achieving a very acceptable auction offer. Also thank you to the person who recommended you to us----he was dead right.
Ian and Pam Fox
Right from the get-go we were impressed with Chris as he answered our phone call on a Sunday night during the Christmas holiday break! Together Chris and Cheryl are a formidable team whom I would not hesitate to recommend to anyone considering selling their property. They are knowledgeable, organized, approachable, and honest and show a huge amount of professional and personal integrity. We could not have wished for a more successful result come auction day and cannot thank Chris and Cheryl enough for their commitment to what proved to be a 'crazy-busy' campaign!
Richard & Karen Lowe
I was referred to Chris via an extended family member and he came through with flying colours! I was constantly updated on all aspects around listing my property right down to the quality of the photos. During a lull in the market for my type of property, Chris assured me and helped me re-focus and believe my property was a goodie. And he was right!
Chris Royal acted for my wife and I when we listed our home for sale. We found Chris' advice to be very well balanced, the information he provided accurate and the identification of potential purchasers informed. He knew his clients and he knew the type of property they were wishing to locate. He is prepared to inconvenience himself for the convenience of others and is a skilled negotiator. I would recommend him to anyone as a skilled real estate agent.
Bruce R Farthing
Over the years we have purchased many properties in Tauranga for ourselves and our family, each time buying with Chris Royal. We have gone through the process of selling these properties over the last couple of years once again using Chris Royal and Eves Realty, the latest being our own home which we decided to sell by Auction. Our home was sold well above reserve in the auction room under the hammer. We have always been very happy with the advice Chris has given and the integrity shown to achieve the outcomes we desired. We would have no hesitation recommending Chris Royal to anyone considering purchasing or selling.
John & Anne O'Connor
Thank you for the very professional way you marketed and sold our property. Both of us found you extremely pleasant and helpful to deal with. The resulting sale by auction exceeded our expectations.
Bernie and Anne Urquhart
Our advice is to consider engaging Chris Royal and his team. At a time when house sales were particularly flat Chris and his team sold our home and assisted us into our new home. Chris works hard for his clients and we found him to be reliable, knowledgeable and astute.
John Haines & Maureen South
We would recommend Chris and his team to anyone wanting to sell their home. He was easy to get on with, was professional and dedicated to selling our house and the price obtained met our expectations.
Ben and Kirsten Halford
Thank you for the seamless handling of selling our house. I said to my wife that I liked Chris' style, not pushy and understood what we were looking for. You gave us an accurate, realistic price with open communication throughout. Until the last day you kept us well informed. It has been an absolute pleasure to deal with you
Robert and Karen Zijp
Thank you so much for your efforts to sell mum's house. The auction went really well and we are all thrilled with the outcome. It was a great choice for us to have selected Eves and a big credit to you to take us on given the distance we were operating from. We really appreciated your advice, transparency and guidance through the whole process.
Jenny Cooper, Hong Kong
While a reputable company was important to us when deciding who to sell with, our final decision came down to the calibre of the agent. We found that Chris more than met our expectations. The communication on a weekly basis was exemplary. He was helpful, knowledgeable, strong in his convictions and absolutely right in the marketing and chosen method of sale
During the process of buying and selling we always use Chris. As an agent Chris has a high level of professional integrity. Proving to be committed, motivated, knowledgeable and honest, always ensuing that the service he provides is of an exceptionally high standard. As clients you feel consulted, involved and foremost, respected.
Graeme and Zoe Blissett
As owners of a "hard to sell" property who have used approximately 10 real estate agents over a 4 year period we feel qualified to comment on the characteristics of a good agent. Chris was recommended to us and we have been delighted with the choice made. We were consistently impressed with his professionalism and integrity and are convinced that he worked hard on our behalf to achieve the best price possible for our property.
From our first meeting my wife and I had to discuss the sale of our house I was impressed with Chris' direct and professional approach. He promised he would give us 100% effort and this is exactly what we received. We appreciated Chris' commitment to keep us in the loop from a communication point of view and never felt left out of what was happening. I will be recommending Chris to both friends and my own clients.
H O Cooney, Partner Cooney Lees Morgan
This is a market that is fairly tough for vendors, particularly of apartments. In that context, the amount of time taken to close a sale and the price achieved, was an outcome I am very pleased with. You got us good value for our marketing spend and kept us well informed of progress which gave me confidence that if there was a buyer out there, you would locate them and reel them in. For me you are batting 2 from 2 so I will have no hesitation in calling on your services again.
You kept us constantly aware of our situation relative to "Open Homes" and individual viewings. The market was difficult but you persevered and succeeded.
Alec and Jan McNaull
We would like to record our appreciation of the excellent service you gave us selling our property. The marketing plan for selling, the excellent exposure in the media, your constant attention to detail and your regular and comprehensive communication gave us confidence that a sale could be achieved within the planned seven week period to auction date. In addition your pleasant, friendly manner eased the stress associated with selling one's home.
Helen & John Horner
We have worked with Chris on 3 occasions now. He is very professional in his work, knowledgeable and committed to achieving the best result possible whilst taking into account his vendors' wishes. Selling our properties with Chris has been an enjoyable process each time and we would certainly choose to work with him again.
Mark & Ruth Richards
I am impressed with your professionalism and dedication as a real estate agent. You gave us your expert advice, yet genuinely listened and respected our decisions. It was quite difficult for us to let go of our home after 8 years but you helped moving on easier.
Greig and Karren Anderson
Your ability to stick with us throught he process of looking for the ideal property was much appreciated, and your wisdom and advise in helping us sell our home in this market made for a relatively quick sale. You have consistently given us and our extended family great service and there was no doubt in our minds who we wanted to entrust with our properties.
Shane & Michelle Harrison
Chris' manner and professionalism were much appreciated. He achieved a better result than we had expected in the rather gloomy property market and we would have no hesitation in using him again for any property transactions.
Murray & Lynda Rabel
Thank you so much for the service you have given us over the past few weeks. The quick turnaround was fantastic. There was no hassle and you just took over and controlled the whole procedure which is great for us being busy people. The regular letters every week keeping us informed on all the responses from potential clients was wonderful.
Thank you for your time and professionalism in helping me to locate and purchase a lovely home, which in turn has helped with my transition in life. I am now well and truly settled and feeling very much at home.
As well as Chris' professional approach, I feel a couple of key factors leading to our sale were Chris' ability to study and survey the market and make necessary adjustments to stay ahead of our opposition. Also very important to me was the continual contact between Chris and ourselves
Steve & Stephanie Livingstone
We were impressed by your no nonsense and straight forward approach. We also appreciated the prompt feedback you gave us after each prospective buyer visit. We are grateful for the hassle free sale
Donald and Fay Wooster
Chris always stayed in touch with us during the sale of our house. Nothing seemed to be any trouble and we found him to be professional in every sense of the word. Never hiding anything and always giving us his honest opinion when queried
Mark & Bonnie Kelly
"Over the years we have purchased many properties in Tauranga for ourselves and our family, each time buying with Chris Royal. We found the advice given during the process to be honest and accurate and we always achieves the outcome we desired. We would have no hesitation in recommending Chris Royal and Eves Realty to anyone considering either purchasing or selling their greatest investment - their home."
John & Anne O'Connor
"We would like to thank you for the very professional way you marketed and sold our property at 28 Rochester Place. Both of us found you extremely pleasant and helpful to deal with - listening to what we wanted and always being available to take phone calls. The resulting sale by auction far exceeded our expectations. We certainly would not hesitate in recommending you to anyone who was wanting to buy or sell a property."
Bernie and Anne Urquhart
"While a reputable company was important to us when deciding who to sell with, our final decision came down to the calibre of the agent. We have lived in Tauranga for many years and as a company that does the right thing, not only fulfilling all the steps that are required when selling our property, Eves Realty and in particular, Chris Royal, stood out from the rest. We found that Chris more than met our expectations. The communication on a weekly basis was exemplary. He was helpful, accessible, knowledgeable, strong in his convictions and absolutely right in the marketing and chosen method of sale."
"If you wish to sell your home our advice is to consider engaging Chris Royal and his team at Eves Real Estate Agents. AT a time when house sales were particularly flat, Chris and team sold our home and assisted us into our new home. These results required considerable negotiation which in our view was undertaken professionally and expeditiously. Chris works hard for his clients and we found him to be reliable, knowledgeable and astute."
