Professional and positive in passion for property and people
“I see property management as developing professional relationships and trust and I thrive on creating positive outcomes for owners and tenants.”
Property management is much more than just a job for Sara Hide, her commitment recognised by the regional awards achieved early in her career.
Sara immediately took to property management after working with her husband in the fast-paced retail industry. She had already developed strong skills in customer service and knew the value of relationship building, her passion for property yet another ingredient in the recipe for success.
Sara loves the diversity of the job, and derives huge satisfaction from satisfying her landlords and tenants. While enjoying the autonomy of the role, she appreciates the team support from a large established company with an excellent reputation. She works closely with her property management colleagues and with Eves salespeople.
Keeping up to speed with Tauranga rental market trends is important to Sara as she handles rental properties all over the city. She continually advances her industry and legislation knowledge, seeing it as a service to her clients that she keeps up with all aspects of property management and tenancy law.
Sara says the keys to her success are patience, communication, willingness to work hard/go the extra mile, thorough attention to detail and embracing the diversity – no day is ever the same.
Describing herself as a “Southern Belle” Sara has moved around New Zealand a lot, first with her parents, then with her husband as their business required it. But she is not planning on moving from Tauranga.
“We have found our “forever home” and my husband, two teenage sons and I absolutely love Tauranga.”
In Sara Hide you have a property manager who loves property, people and the place where she lives and works!
I just wanted to say a huge thanks to you and the tenants. Walking into our house was amazing.
It was so clean. It is the first time I have ever walked into a property that we have owned or purchased where I haven’t had to clean it!
We really appreciate your tenant selection and the way the tenants have looked after the house and making the gardens look so good it just makes me so grateful and happy.
Sara has been our property manager for the last 3 years, and we cannot compliment her enough! She has been so easy to work with, and every task and question thrown her way has been answered professionally and promptly.
The communication has been fantastic, no missed payments, and I truly felt that nothing was missed. The remittance documents, the inspection reports, invoices for fixes, everything was done promptly and above our standards & expectations.
We felt extremely reassured for the last 3 years about our property, to the point where it never once crossed our minds that we needed to go down and visit the property as we knew it was in good hands.
We honestly can't recommend Sara enough, and hope that this small review will help her in the future for her property manager work.
Sara is a great asset to your team!

Sara was our property manager for a home we rented in the Lakes for four years. We found Sara to be very professional, kind and extremely friendly.
Sara always treated us with respect and always went the extra mile whenever we needed her help. Any emails we sent her were dealt with promptly and efficiently.
I would highly recommend Sara to be a Property Manager for any Home Owner. I would gladly be Sara tenant in the future if the opportunity arises.

Sara, We are so grateful for your support and hard work in getting things over the line with us. We have never experienced the efficiency, communication and can-do attitude from a previous property manager, you are a cut above the rest!

We were introduced to Sara when we purchased our first rental property through Eve’s Real Estate. We were totally inexperienced as this was our first rental property but she patiently guided us through the pitfalls and statutory responsibilities of landlords.
We were very satisfied with how promptly Sara managed to sign up a top tenant at a higher rental than we expected.
She is always friendly and professional, always available to assist, and fully in control.
We’d highly recommend Sara as a property manager to anyone planning to let a property.

I have been only completely impressed with Sara since she took over as our property manager on our rental in Gate Pa. Responsive, professional, knowledgeable.
I would like to convey my absolute delight with having Sara manage my property in Pyes Pa. I had the pleasure of briefly meeting Sara, whilst in search of a competent property manager. And my first impression was that Sara exuded complete confidence and expertise. But what appealed to me the most is her positive and caring personality. Her personal touch has added value. To date, Sara has performed an exceptional service, and has exceeded my expectations. She continually provides me with tenancy updates and maintenance issues that has been conducted, with relevant invoices. Her professionalism, proficiency and total dedication to her work is outstanding. I work offshore for long periods, and I know I need not worry about my property as it is in good hands. In the near future I intend to acquire more rental properties, and I would prefer Sara to be my sole property manager
