Steve Slicker and Tara Russell are highly successful Kaitoke real estate agents. They work with Baileys Real Estate and have a terrific knowledge of the Upper Hutt property market, having sold a huge number of properties across the Hutt Valley, including Trentham, Silverstream, Wallaceville, Totara Park and, of course, Kaitoke.
Why sell your Kaitoke property through Steve and Tara?
"The main difference we offer is the belief that real estate is more service than sales, with both vendors and buyers being comfortable in the knowledge that they are working with a thorough and professional team, with nothing being too much trouble"
And the secret to Steve and Tara’s success at real estate? It’s actually very simple. “The harder we work, the luckier we get” Steve explains.
Steve believes that real estate is more about providing a service rather than mere sales, and if that service is provided well and the process is followed then they guarantee the sale will definitely happen.
Steve is a winner of The Margo Macauley Memorial Supreme Agent Trophy
Steve joined Tommy’s Real Estate in November 2003 and, by only his 2nd year, he was Tommy’s Top Selling Upper Hutt agent. Steve was headhunted by the world’s largest real estate company where he worked for one year, was ranked 18th in New Zealand and left to re-join Tommy’s in April 2007.
Steve has won the top agent award for the office every year since. In 2017 Steve is 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 consistently among the highest performing sales team 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.
This great sales record goes back a long way. Steve Slicker 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 1997, 1998 and 1999.
