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!
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
