Crystal Harvey is doing things differently and it works.
Having previously worked in the family business, not only armed Crystal with specific skills but also highlighted how she wanted to achieve her own success. This, teamed with drive and determination, is what steered her toward a career in real estate.
Since then, Crystal has gone from strength to strength, making a unique mark on the industry. It’s the challenges that drive her and when it comes to measuring success, Crystal believes that it’s all about setting goals and continuously growing as a person. This enables her to give something back by achieving the very best results for both buyers and sellers alike.
What sets Crystal apart is her down to earth, stress free approach, and clients can expect absolute confidence when buying or selling. Her belief in constant communication and her unwavering passion for real estate allows her the ability to see potential in every property, and truly make it shine in the market place.
Having lived in Tauranga all her life, Crystal has an immense passion for the area. She believes it’s the affordability of living in a place with such an enviable lifestyle that draws people here and when she’s not selling houses, Crystal is enjoying our beautiful surrounds with friends and family.
With Crystal Harvey, it’s all about honesty and integrity - what you see is what you get.
Over the past eighteen months I have bought and sold a few properties through Crystal. We bought a beautiful home recently giving us five weeks to sell my home. Crystal put our house up for Auction, bought the Auction forward with an offer after one week. It was all done and dusted within ten days, and we got a very good price for my house.
Crystal is devoted to her Real Estate career. Honest and experienced well above others I have dealt with in the Real Estate industry. I can recommend her to anyone and will continue to deal with her when buying and selling property.
We recently decided to sell our property in Cherrywood, Tauranga and asked Crystal Harvey to market it for us.
Crystal’s professional manner, enthusiasm and positive marketing of our property encouraged a number of interested buyers to attend the auction with an outcome that far exceeded our expectations.
Throughout the process Crystal kept us informed of weekly progress with both verbal and written feedback, and worked tirelessly on our behalf.
We are very happy to recommend here and wish her well for the future.
Merilyn and David Charsley
I have been purchasing, developing and investing in property for over 20 years in both Australia and NZ. In that time, I have dealt with many real estate agents. For me, what sets Crystal apart from the rest is her passion, hard work, honesty and a down to earth approach that she consistently and professionally brings to the job. She has gone above and beyond on all dealings I have had with her.
I believe it's this approach that has enabled Crystal to develop long lasting business relationships with her customers which in turn has contributed to her incredible success.
She backs her approach up with an incredible knowledge of the property market, excellent communication skills and superior negotiation skills.
Her approach to her work combined with her skills has consistently achieved above market results for my properties. I trust Crystal with all my property dealings exclusively and do not hesitate to recommend her.
Cherie White Style to Sell (NZ) Ltd
Dave and I had a house to sell that was a mix of Harditex and brick cladding. Six months earlier we had taken our house to market with a competing land agency. There were no interested buyers as the Auction date approached and no feedback so we withdrew our house off the market.
We decided to have one more go and rang Crystal Harvey as she had the most listings on the Eve’s website.
We met Crystal and knew she was the right agent to sell our house. Crystal is hardworking and has selling skills which is what was required to make the sale of our house happen.
At Auction day we had 3 bidders and a phone bidder. Our house sold 3 days after the Auction.
We are delighted with the outcome and price we received. The result was definitely down to Crystal’s hard work and selling skills.
Dave and I recommend Crystal to anyone thinking of selling and when we decide to buy into the housing market again, Crystal is who we will be calling.
Dave and Kathy Alexander
This was our first sale by Auction and Crystal made it both a stress free and exciting experience.
Her marketing strategy achieved a good number of buyers at Auction and realised for us a sale price beyond our expectations.
Very importantly Crystal maintained a positive and co-operative relationship with our tenant, and this meant that access was not a problem and was therefore extremely important in the marketing process.
We would definitely recommend Crystal to anyone looking to either buy or sell a home.
Robert & Philippa Bills
We sold our property with Crystal and found her to be informative and clear with her communication. We put our property on a three week marketing campaign and were pleased with the successful result we achieved on Auction day. I would recommend her to others thinking of selling.
Thankyou so much for the happy photos of us after selling my unit!
Thankyou too for your fine service and achieving what you said you would do right from the start, to sell my place and leave me freehold for my next home. You are a star!!!
I wish to share my experience with anyone wishing to sell their property.
I was referred to Crystal Harvey by my son who had already referred at least two others to her , on the strength of Crystal's great service and the ability to sell for the vendor at a very acceptable price.
On meeting Crystal, I found her to be a warm, intelligent and effervescent person, who is transparent and honest in her dealings. In the short time it took Crystal to sell my property, I was given exceptional service. Weekly I received a marketing report, the level of interest, and updates on Eve's programme of selling for me, and comments from potential buyers.
I have sold several properties in the past but have never had this level of service before.
I would highly recommend Crystal Harvey as a Real Estate Sales Person who will offer a low stress way of securing a happy outcome for you in the sale of your property.
Want your property sold at the right price? Look no further than Crystal. She is an agent apart! From first contact you will be impressed by her motivation and focussed desire to do her absolute best by you. It is perhaps Crystal's attention to detail that sets her above others-that and her absolute commitment to you, the vendor. She is clear in her mind and actions that she works on behalf of you. While some agents bend in favour of a prospective purchaser and by extraction, a sure sale for themselves, Crystal holds out-consults and listens, then uses her skills as a sales agent to close a deal profitable for all, but in particular, for you. She puts her vendor, rather than herself, first. You are left feeling fully informed and part of the process. She is fast becoming a maestro at her game. How lucky that we came in contact with her.
From the outset it was her initiative that brought her to my attention; and this same initiative that brought the sale of our property to a happy conclusion. She was not the first agent to have tried but she was the most successful. If you need a proactive, informed agent who will do the job to your advantage, contact Crystal Harvey! A real team player.
Thank you Crystal Harvey for all your hard work. Would highly recommend her to others looking at selling. Got us an amazing price. Such an honest easy to get along with agent that was always closely in touch with us through this journey to the end. What she promised she delivered. Some very happy sellers!
Leonie and Greg Johnson
We had a great experience with Crystal Harvey from Eves. We were able to get exactly what we were looking for and the whole process was a breeze thanks to Crystal.
We are so happy with our new home. Thank you!!
Sam and Lucy
From the beginning, Crystal knew we were extremely motivated vendors and worked exceptionally hard throughout the process to secure us a quick and hassle- free sale. As well as a busy open home, potential buyers were taken through our property regularly and Crystal kept us updated with progress reports and feedback from potential buyers every day the house was on the market. In spite of a couple of obstacles on the property, through Crystal's hard work, diligence and experience, it sold within two weeks, enabling us to go unconditional on the property we had set our hearts on! Very many thanks, Crystal, you're a legend!
Les and Karen Dimond
Crystal did such a great job for the vendor and yet held a totally professional approach towards me as the purchaser. She is so good that I will not be looking anyway other than Crystal when we buy or sell any of the properties. You can tell the integrity of a real-estate person on what they say about the Vendor and how they put their interests first. Any agent that does not follow this rule will just do the same to you. What I found helpful is that Crystal had no barrier to distance. Yes we were in Auckland and the property was in Tauranga but the way she managed the situation with perfection. She contacted us at 2:15pm last Friday via email and 4hrs and 15 min later we owned the property.
She has a technique which brought the vendor and I to point which meant I had to make a flash decision. In fact I did not even have time to go home and pick up a tooth brush. I jumped in my car 45min later and shot down and did the deal. The Vendor got MORE than what he asked for and we got the property we wanted. Therefore Crystal crafted that deal to perfection. She just read the situation well and both the vendor and I had a nice glass of wine together after Crystal had left. The celebration of a great purchase and Sale. I don't write letters like this as I simply don't have the time but given my experience with a distance purchase I wanted to take the time let you know how well Crystal did last week. Many thanks and here's to more property to come.
John McCarthy - Auckland
Many thanks Crystal for making the marketing and prompt and successful sale of our property seem effortless. We were very impressed with your attention to detail and the way you communicated with us every step of the way. Your availability and friendly disposition made the whole process a lot easier for us and you were a pleasure to deal with. You came highly recommended to us and you didn't disappoint. We will have pleasure in doing the same with confidence to prospective clients and wish you well in the future.
Gloria and Trevor Stanley
We were really impressed with Crystal's efforts and felt she did a fantastic job with the sale of our home.
Campbell and Maureen Babington, Te Puna
Thanks so much for the work that you did in getting my properties at 75a and 75b Waihi Rd sold. I really appreciated the way you communicated clearly about buyer intention so that I was well aware of where things may land in the end.
Your recommendations to auction and also to negotiate with the leading bidder at the auction really were the right calls. It shows to me that you knew the best approach to take.
More importantly, you worked with my tenants to ensure that they were kept informed during the process and also that their lives were not too negatively impacted by the processions of land agents and buyers through their home.
Sandy Scarrow, Tauranga
It is with much pleasure that we write a reference and recommendation for the selling or purchase of a home with Crystal Harvey who represents Eves Real Estate, Cherrywood, Tauranga.
In the month of June 2015 we sold our home through Auction process.
Crystal also found another home for us that we purchased and are very happy with. This can be a time of high stress and emotion. We can honestly say that Crystal with her knowledge and experience in the industry guided us through seamlessly.
Crystal Harvey is highly focused and motivated. Also Crystal is very reliable and honest with a wonderful attitude. We were kept up to date on a day to day basis and knew exactly how our sale/purchase was tracking.
The management team around Crystal are extremely professional and supportive. The Auctioneer Grant Child was very informative. The whole Eves team work very hard to gain the best possible outcomes for the vendor.
We obtained a higher than expected sale price and highly recommend Crystal Harvey for all your Real
Estate needs and have absolutely no hesitation in writing "If you want the best Real Estate agent to work for you.....contact Crystal Harvey first, you will not be disappointed".
Raewyn and Tony Vickers, Tauranga
The moment I met Crystal I knew she was the perfect agent to sell my property in Otumoetai. Not only was her knowledge of the area and market conditions outstanding, she was very friendly, honest and a true professional.
I could never have predicted that after only a week of listing my house Crystal had not only sold my house, but had done so exceeding my expectations.
It is with great pleasure I recommend Crystal to anyone who is looking to sell or purchase a
property. With Crystal's hardworking, ethical approach she is the perfect agent for anyone who wants results.
Thank you so much for all your help, you are amazing.
Trish Lamont, Tauranga
Crystal was unbelievable with the sale of my home, prompt with responses from buyers, fantastic with her marketing strategy and steered me in the exact direction to get maximum exposure and presence in the market. I can highly recommend Crystal to anyone wanting a professional who thinks outside the square to get their home sold promptly.
If you are wanting to sell your house, with awesome results, then Crystal is the agent you need. Crystal came highly recommended, after selling my Mums house in one week. She is incredibly professional, honest, easy to deal with, and most importantly a person with integrity.
I have no hesitation in recommending Crystal, whoever employs her services will not be disappointed.
Thank you Crystal for yet another outstanding result with the sale of my section on Kulim Ave. The sale was not straight forward, however your experience enabled you to deal with complicated issues with skill and professionalism at all times. Achieving results beyond my expectations simply comes down to your unwavering commitment to obtain the best possible price.
Crystal, thank you so much for your help with buying our new property. You were very easy to deal with and we felt no pressure at all. All the information we needed was supplied very promptly and again we felt no pressure to complete the deal. Thanks again for the voucher. We will definitely keep in contact and will recommend you any time we get the opportunity.
Robyn & Craig Bell
Thank you Crystal for your outstanding service during the recent sale of my property on Tilby Drive, Matua. With your local knowledge, excellent marketing strategy and superior negotiation skills, I was always confident that my investment was in very good hands. Despite being based in Sydney your brilliant communication skills kept me informed throughout the entire sales process. Your willingness and ability to go above and beyond removed all stress from the process and most certainly was the reason you achieved an above-market price. I look forward to working with you again in the future.
I have used Crystal Harvey as an agent to sell a property on behalf of my father who is very ill. This is the first time I have ever used Crystal as an agent. I found her to be such an amazing person who actually listened to what I was saying and did the best for us as vendors. It is not often that I find an agent that will actually do what it is you want, so it was a pleasure to work with Crystal. Crystal knew that we needed to get the property sold as soon as possible and she managed this in just one day, getting us exactly what we wanted for it. I would fully recommend Crystal to anyone who is looking for someone that is dynamic but also not pushing her own agenda. Thanks Crystal for all your help.
We achieved our goal to sell two houses in four weeks due to the skill and commitment of Crystal Harvey. We achieved close to the list price and were thrilled with the outcome. Crystal first met with us to bring together the marketing plan. This included our requirements coupled with her leadership and expertise. What mattered to us, mattered to Crystal and remained the focus throughout the selling period. Through the four weeks we progressed through the plan. Any hiccups were just that. Crystal's ability to align all information along the timeline provided us and the two separate buyers with full confidence. We appreciate and value everything Crystal has done. We have expressed this also to the management of EVES. We would recommend her without reservation. Crystal, thank you so much. All the very best for 2015!
Marie and Alan Nott
We were very impressed with Crystal's professionalism whilst purchasing a residential section through Eves Real Estate. We subsequently listed our home for Sale with Crystal and found her a pleasure to deal with. Excellent communication and very courteous. Our home was listed for Sale on the 15th November 2014 and Sold on the 28th November 2014. The short time frame for a successful sale speaks for itself. We would have no hesitation in recommending Crystal to any Vendor or Purchaser.
Crystal Harvey recently sold our house within a week of it being on the market. We found Crystal to be knowledgeable about the area in which we were selling and her suggested listing range was in the same vicinity of what we had in mind, which she supported with selling prices of similar properties to ours, in our area. Crystal constantly kept us up to date with feedback from both other sales agents and prospective buyers. We felt she listened to us, was approachable and acted swiftly to secure the buyer for our property. We were very happy with the service Crystal provided us and would not hesitate to recommend her.
Craig and Augustine Wymer
Roger and I have really enjoyed working with Crystal from our first phone contact when she organized four homes for us to view in the Otumoetai area we have found Crystal very professional and thorough, a fantastic communicator who kept us up-to-date with any relevant properties on the market. Crystal has listened to what we wanted, what we would not compromise on and the price range we set and we had ourselves a Real Estate Agent who didn't waste our time or hers. All dealings have been pleasant and friendly and we now like to think of Crystal as a friend, as well as someone we will be happy to work with again in our future property dealings. Roger and I would be very happy to recommend Crystal to anyone looking at purchasing a home.
Roger and Sandy Olsen
Crystal is professional, hardworking, open and honest. We have sold properties through Crystal in the past and found she is great at chasing buyers up, easy to communicate with and we are once again pleased with the outcome we have achieved on 11 Norton Road, Otumoetai.
Barry & June Kidd
I would like to thank you for the effort your put into making our recent property purchase as stressfree and straightforward as possible.
When we first arrived at the open home you were very welcoming and forthcoming with information regarding that property, recent sales in the area, and other information which we may have been interested in.
When we decided to make an offer on the house you worked exceptionally hard to make it happen as quickly and as simply as possible. We were unaware of just how much work you needed to do until the offer was accepted.
We have been impressed with and appreciated your professionalism, your "can do" attitude and your willingness to "go the extra mile" and always with a smile
I would not hesitate in recommending you to anyone looking at selling property in Tauranga.
Carol Hayes - Thames Investor
To Whom it May Concern,
I, Warwick James Andersen (Jock) the tenant at 115 Grange Road, Otumoetai, Tauranga rented for almost a year when the owners decided to put the property on the market. The owner chose Eves Real Estate to sell their property for them. The Residential Salesperson was Crystal Harvey. I first met Crystal and found her to be very pleasant, and in the two months Crystal and I worked as a team so to speak, she kept me up to date with what was going on and as to when the open homes would be etc. Crystal and the Eves team were great, they would either ring or text to inform me that they were showing someone through and would always leave a card to show that they had been. Right up until the Sold Sign went up Crystal kept me informed. I found the Eves team to be great people to work with and if I had my own home I would use Eves to market and sell it. Great work Eves and congrats on the Sale of 115 Grange Road. If I am ever in the same position as this and the owner of the property wanted to sell I would hope that they would get Eves as I would be more than happy to work with them again. Best of luck for the years ahead selling more homes.
WARWICK JAMES ANDERSEN (JOCK) Property Maintenance.
Alex and I (Ann) Garrett had Crystal as our agent to find us a unit in Tauranga. We are impressed with her work ethic and feel she made every effort to get us a property we were happy with. She kept us informed throughout the process and made sure all of the documentation was correct. We would recommend her to anyone that was looking to purchase a property.
Alex & Ann Garrett
Friendly, diligent and professional. Crystal is a pleasure to deal with.
Jarred Tatham - Auckland. Builder
Right from the outset and that first visit when you came and saw me for an appraisal your caring nature and willingness to help shone through. You are committed and think of a person as a whole, not just a house. Your support over the last few months with my personal situation has been VERY much appreciated and has been very helpful. I would recommend you to anyone who is selling or purchasing.
Lisa Sullivan, Tauranga - Ministry Of Social Development
I have had the pleasure of working with Crystal on several occasions now. She sold a house to my son and his partner and we are very pleased with the location and the house. Crystal went out of her way to ensure that they were looked after with the mortgage Broker and that everything went smoothly for them.
When a friend from Auckland was house hunting for a property in Tauranga, Crystal worked hard over a period of time to source the right house for her and she is now a proud owner of a new home and is very happy with the end result.
Just recently the house that I have been renting for a long period was put on the market. I recommended Crystal to my landlord as I had found her to be very professional in all aspects with both my son and friend. Crystal went out of her way to make sure that I, as the tenant was treated with respect and that the property was view by appointment only. Again she did a fantastic job and the property was sold the day she put up the for sale sign. In all aspects Crystal kept me well informed and has been a delight to work with.
I wish Crystal all the best with her new position with Eves and will continue to recommend family and friends to her.
