Steve Slicker and Tara Mayer are highly successful Heretaunga real estate agents. They work with Bayleys real estate and have developed a terrific knowledge of the Upper Hutt property market, having sold a huge number of properties across the entire Hutt Valley, including Trentham, Silverstream, Wallaceville, Emerald Hill and Heretaunga.


Steve says "The main difference we offer is the belief that real estate is more about service than mere sales, with both vendors and buyers being comfortable in the knowledge that they are working with a thorough and professional agent, for whom nothing is too much trouble."

And what is the secret to Steve and Tara’s success in real estate?

It’s all rather simple, actually.“The harder we work, the luckier we get” Steve explains.

Steve believes that real estate is about providing a service rather than just sales, and, if that service is provided well, and the process is followed then the sale will definitely happen.

Steve is the winner of The Margo Macauley Memorial Supreme Agent Trophy

In November 2003 Steve joined Tommy’s Real Estate. By only his 2nd year he was Tommy’s Top Selling’ agent in Upper Hutt. Steve was then headhunted by the world’s largest real estate company where he worked for one year and was ranked 18th in all of New Zealand. He left to re-join Tommy’s in April 2007.

Steve has won the top agent for the Upper Hutt office every year since then. In 2017 Steve was the first recipient outside of our Wellington office to be awarded The Margo Macauley memorial Supreme Agent Trophy. What makes this even more special is that Tommy’s salespeople are already consistently among the highest performing sales teams in terms of sales per salesperson in New Zealand across all brands. So, to be recognised as the best of the best is truly special.

Let's go back some years. Steve has been working in Real Estate since 1995, training with Bushells, a real estate company in West London before moving to Barnard Marcus in early 1997 and becoming their top selling agent for 3 consecutive years. That would be 1997, 1998 and 1999. (Top out of 200 agents over 47 offices) In 2000 Steve opened the Tate Partnership Real Estate office with his business partner in Chiswick, West London before selling up in 2002 to move to New Zealand with his then wife and young family.

After a recent merger, Steve now works with Bayleys Real Estate.
