Sylvia, who was born in Holland and relocated to New Zealand as a child, has lived most of her life in Tauranga though spent her young adult years raising her children and dairy farming in the Waikato. After moving to the city, and always yearning a career in real estate Sylvia decided to use her personality and skills and focus on a different career direction. Sylvia briefly left real estate to become a hand’s on mum, however the love of property and people couldn’t keep her away and she’s now been back for several years, building great rapport with clients as she goes.
Sylvia is a mum of three adult children, soon to be a first time oma (grandma) and owns her own home in beautiful Papamoa. A Papamoa local through and through, Sylvia takes great pride in assisting clients in our beachside town. She understands that needs can often change as life happens and because of this, Sylvia finds it vital to connect with people and determine what is most important to the client and works hard to exceed clients expectations in selling their biggest asset or assisting them into their new dream home or lifestyle.
Sylvia prides herself on not being just another real estate sales consultant but rather a reliable, honest and empathetic sales consultant who takes a genuine interest in both her vendors and purchasers. Sylvia has proven herself to be an excellent communicator, an active listener and is both dedicated and passionate about real estate. With a friendly, approachable nature along with a nothing is too much trouble attitude Sylvia makes your buying or selling experience hassle free. The business philosophy Sylvia stands by is “what she can do for you” in helping you achieve your needs, not “what you can do for her”.
If outstanding service from the first point of contact to beyond sale is for you then test Sylvia on her level of commitment every step of the way. A real estate salesperson who listens to what you want and can drive sales at the same time, call Sylvia today!

Sylvia Strijkers has been working on my behalf for several weeks now and has greatly impressed me with her commitment to her client! Nothing is too much trouble and she is very willing to meet me after hours or on the weekend.
She is a friendly and approachable person – I have no hesitation in recommending Sylvia to those who need help and advice in the Real Estate area.
I would recommend listing with Sylvia for her personal service and commitment to her clients.
Sylvia was recently successful in selling our property at a price within the appraisal value that she had predicted according to her research in the property market sales and of homes that had previously sold in the same area. Though, we found at times the selling experience very stressful, from the hype of the Auction room to the preparation process for open home viewing, Sylvia always made a point to be there to support and guide us through these challenging times. Her friendly, caring, enthusiastic and professional approach is a rare commodity in a business world where sadly money is known to sometimes overtake the needs of the client. Sylvia’s commitment and strive to help negotiate a successful sale for us (and no doubt her many other clients) has us believe that Eves Real Estate is very fortunate to have a dedicated person like Sylvia working on their team.

I recently found a card drop in my mailbox from Sylvia Strijkers. I contacted her to arrange an appointment to have an appraisal completed on my house in Percy Road. Sylvia turned up on time, and had arranged with a client she was also visiting that ran over time to call back and see her, so she wouldn’t be late for my appointment. This I found very professional. Pleasing both potential customers.
Sylvia was very pleasant and very knowledgeable, of the industry and the area and discussed the opportunities that were out there should I decide to sell. Sylvia has kept in touch since and I feel that when I do decide to list my property, I would certainly list with Sylvia as her honesty and integrity and the interest she has shown is second to none.

Sylvia helped me to find a property to buy. She knew how hard it was to find something to suit my needs (being a paraplegic) and spent many weeks finding a property to look at. So I thank Sylvia for helping me to buy a property.
We had the occasion to do business with Sylvia Strijkers when assisting our friend to purchase a property in the Tauranga district. Being from outside the Tauranga area Sylvia made us feel at home the first time we met her. She goes out of her way on any issue, is reliable, easy to contact at any time via text, phone or email. Nothing is a problem to Sylvia when it comes to properties. She is a person who goes over and above the call of duty to solve all queries put to her. She is pleasant with a wicked bubbly personality and pleasure to deal with and a great sense of humour.
Should any one of our friends require a real estate representative to buy or sell a property in her area, I would not hesitate to get them to contact her to represent them on buying and selling.

Sylvia was outstanding, her follow up was exceptional and she went the extra distance for us. Thank you so much Sylvia.

It was our great pleasure and good luck to discover Sylvia Strijkers when we thought about selling our home recently. Sylvia had previously put out a mail drop in our street and subsequently we decided to ask her to call in to supply us with an appraisal. We instantly loved her approach to our needs and while we did not initially list the house, we kept in touch with her and eventually, when the time came we naturally called upon her services.
For us, Sylvia was completely approachable, listened to our story and helped us through the process with calmness, humour and professionalism. We never felt pressured and were always kept informed of progress. She understood our needs and went over and above to ensure we achieved our desired outcome with a good sale price which was just great.
We highly recommend Sylvia and would not hesitate in enlisting her help again should the need arise.
