Satisfaction Seeds Success
Debbie Hoult derives huge satisfaction from satisfying the goals of her landlords and tenants. She sees property management as a rewarding and challenging career where her commitment to all concerned delivers satisfaction all round.
"My key to effective property management is to listen carefully to clients' requests, be diligent and hardworking in meeting their needs, then follow up with continuous good service to both tenant and landlord throughout the tenancy."
Life and Professional Experience
Debbie began her professional life as a secretary then helped her husband Don run a large sheep and beef farm while raising four children. Ownership and management of a backpacker/motel in Tauranga for 11 years followed, then Don took up real estate sales. Debbie joined him at EVES as PA for seven years before becoming a Property Manager in 2010.
She is involved in her adult children's lives and in the community through their church, through Don's role as a funeral director at Legacy Funerals and in Rotary. "Wherever I see a need I try to help."
The ability to identify needs and provide the right assistance makes Debbie a caring and competent Property Manager. She applies her mediation skills to ensure all parties are happy and responds rapidly to requests.
Importance of the EVES 'Family'
"I have found the EVES team incredibly professional and supportive. There is a 'family atmosphere' and you feel your effects are genuinely appreciated. EVES operate with integrity and transparency and my reputation as an honest, caring and efficient property manager is very important to me.
"I always treat others as I would like to be treated and do my best at all times."
Debbie has been our property manager for 8 years and in that time she has provided a highly professional and friendly service with outstanding communications at all times. We were living overseas and she consistently ensured she met our needs and those of the high quality tenants she found for us. All property maintenance issues were raised quickly and fixes arranged without fuss. In addition Debbie kept us up to date with any legal obligations and ensured we remained compliant as tenancy laws changed. In the 8 years Debbie managed our property we only had about 4 weeks in total without tenants and this was only due to the inevitable gaps between old tenants leaving and when new ones could shift in.
We have no hesitation in recommending Debbie to anyone requiring property management services.
Warren & Carol Climo
I thank you for having been such a wonderful property manager for me. You took all the pain out of being a Landlord, you organised everything that needed organising and you kept me fully informed about everything I needed to know about and helped me to make decisions when I wasn't sure what I should do. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your work and I will miss our regular email exchanges.
Thank you again
Living 3 hours from Tauranga, we wanted someone we could trust to take care of our property. When we met Debbie Hoult at Eves Rentals, we got on a wave length quickly, and over the years she has found very good tenants for us. She also showed discretion and fairness when ourselves and a tenant had different hopes for how they could use the home – leading to a good resolution. Debbie respects both tenants for whom this is their “home” and landlords.
Merv & Adrienne Coates
Hi there Debbie, Sarah and I would like to thank you for being an amazing easy going property manager. You made it so easy to move to Tauranga and we wish you all the best for the future. If we do come back over we know who to contact, once again thanks.
Clinton and Sarah - Happy tenants.
My husband and I reside in Auckland and have had the pleasure of working with Debbie Hoult, Property Manager at Eves Rental Realty since the purchase of our investment properties in Tauranga.
Living out of town means being forcibly hands off with our property investments however Debbie is instrumental in keeping us informed and updated with various building and tenant matters. We have had a trouble free experience from Settlement Day and less than one weeks vacancy across our property portfolio since then!
Debbie is professional, accessible, quick to action and very balanced in her approach in keeping tenant’s welfare and landlord interests in check. We deeply appreciate her tireless work ethic and commitment to the high standards she sets for the property management profession.

Debbie was thoroughly reliable from our very first contact. She handled the transition from a loved home to rental property with understanding and professionalism. She went the extra mile to see that everything was promptly attended to and we have confidence in her to protect our property.
I would like to thank you for all of your assistance over the years and wish you all the very best for the future.
Once again, you help is very much appreciated.
