Grant is a guy who understands exacting standards. Prior to his career in real estate he was an executive chef on-board superyachts for celebrities and billionaires. However, not being a billionaire himself, he’s also an incredibly down-to-earth family man who knows what’s important to those who don’t require a private marina in their back yard!
“When you’re dealing with people like that, there are two things you need to be – a great listener and highly trustworthy,” says Grant. “Because not only is privacy important to them, but they also have very exacting standards and tastes. And if you can’t deliver those, you’ll never last in that business.
So when people ask me why they should work with me buying and selling properties, that’s the answer – a level of trust that you can rely on and the ability to listen to your needs and translate them into ways of achieving your dreams.”
In short, what Grant delivers with EVES, is an enjoyable buying or selling experience built first and foremost on what you need and backed up with a quality of service learned through a successful career in the high-end hospitality industry.
When he’s not making real estate dreams into reality, he can be found with his wife and two young boys at local parks near the family home in Matua and on bike tracks all around the Bay of Plenty.
So drop Grant a line and we’re sure you’ll enjoy his genuine nature and fun, friendly approach to making your real estate dreams come true. (Just don’t ask him for the gossip on your favourite celebrity though, because he’s sworn to secrecy!)
Jo recently helped me sold my property in Tauranga. She is friendly and approachable and works very professionally, keeping me informed at every stage of the sales. As I live in Auckland, Jo was extremely helpful in dealing with all the relevant parties in my absent, including but not limited to the developer, council, surveyor and solicitors. Jo is a true professional and I will highly recommend her services to others.
It was really nice and smooth working with you.
We loved your efficient communication and patience with all our questions and also your effort of going the extra mile to help us.
It was surprising how fast you understood our needs and taste you quickly found us the right one.
We enjoy our new home very much…. although it is still a mess now :)

It was a pleasure working with you and you have been very helpful. Not having gone through the whole process before there were lots of things that I needed advice on.
I think that you have been genuine and responsive to all of my requests and for that I thank you.

You have been great to work with and appreciate your flexible, accommodating and candid approach.

What I like most about working with Grant was the fact he asked us a lot of questions about what we were looking for, his down-to-earth style and his honesty. He listened to what we wanted and didn’t try to sell us the stock he had if it wasn’t close to our brief. He gave 150% for us. If you are looking for a straight shooter, who listens and will do what is best for his clients rather than what is easiest or will benefit him the most, I would highly recommend Grant. Please feel free to call me if you would like to discuss Grant’s capabilities any further. Thank you Grant for the time and effort you have put into this. We really appreciate your honesty in this whole process and your “no hard sell” approach.
Grant was informative, energetic, hardworking and approachable. We really enjoyed the process of searching for a property with him and will keep his number on speed dial for the future.

We cannot recommend Grant highly enough as a personable and knowledgeable real estate agent, who has the best interests of his clients at heart at all times.
My wife and I made a special effort to drive from Auckland down to Tauranga to investigate the first-home buyers’ market. It’s fair to say we were hesitant during the drive down as to what we were going to find and whether the trip would be worth the effort, but all our doubts were put to rest within 10 minutes of meeting Grant.
It was plain to us that Grant is genuinely enthused about helping his clients and is driven by a positive natural energy. Grant was excited to find out about us – not just our housing needs but about our background, our lives and our goals with real estate.
The positive energy was evident throughout the whole afternoon Grant devoted to us – driving us around neighbourhoods he recommended that we check out, chatting easily and informatively the whole time. Grant obviously knows his markets, but we were very pleased that he gives his information without a “salesy” attitude that’s so common with real estate agents.
Although we haven’t found anything yet, Grant has continued to be amazing in his communication with us since we visited him a few weeks ago and we’re very confident that with him on our case, the “right one” for us is just around the corner.
Thank you Grant for all you’ve done and are doing for us in our search for the first step onto the ladder!
