Licensee Salesperson, Ray White Tuakau
Once you’ve met Vern Reeve, you won’t easily forget him. Gregarious and upbeat, Vern is the consummate professional who adheres to the old-fashioned virtues of good manners, good-will and sincerity.
A long time Tuakau resident, Vern’s formative years were spent in and around Mangere East. At school he loved the arts but his abiding passion was and still is, motorsport. With an engineer-father, the mechanical intricacies of race-car engines were undoubtedly in his DNA, but Vern’s career has largely been in sales, marketing and the special skill of connecting and having rapport with people.
His career spans a number of decades, (Vern might light-heartedly assert “too many”) in marketing and sales roles with engineering firms, large corporates, vehicle manufacturers, and the film, music and entertainment industries.
Vern know the district like the proverbial back of his hand and although he markets and sells all types of property in and around Tuakau he also reaches out into the Northern Waikato region including Pokeno and the now fast growing Te Kauwhata area.
Seven years down the track from the commencement of his real estate career, Vern is now a part of the management team of Southern Corridor Realty who own Ray White Tuakau – a company Vern helped to establish with Ted Ingram. As a well-known identity in Tuakau, Vern’s relaxed approachable style and spirited endorsement of his home town is irresistible. His extensive database of clients and friends wouldn’t dream of giving anyone other than Vern a call to help them buy and sell a home or block of land.
He has been, and still is, enormously involved with the community in all sorts of ways - immediate past Chairperson of the Tuakau District Development Association, Waikato District Council Community Board member of the Onewhero Tuakau Community Board, Trustee of the Tuakau Emergency Services and a member of Tuakau Rotary.
Vern shares his life with wife and soul-mate Vicky on their ½ acre block in Tuakau and still follows motorsport (as a spectator rather than a participant these days). When time permits he and Vicky head off on road-trips in the campervan and catch up with the many mates they have, the length and breadth of New Zealand.
My wife Judith and I had the opportunity to use the skills of Vern Reeve to sell our home in Tuakau. I would comment that from the initial discussions to the conclusion of the sale, Vern was a very professional agent. His advice on the presentation of the property, setting a selling price that was fair to us yet appealing to the market, his Open Home feedback, his negotiation skills with interested parties, and lawyers ensured a smooth selling process. His personal knowledge of the Tuakau market and real estate is a great credit to him, we can recommend Vern with confidence.

Earlier this year we decided to downsize from our Manukau property and approached a ray White Salesperson with whom we had experienced a successful negotiation previously, to sell our property. At this time we began searching for a smaller replacement in the Manukau - Papakura areas eventually extending south to the Franklin area where we found several properties in Tuakau of interest. During this period we met Vern Reeve who incidentally was a Ray White Salesperson with no previous association with our local Ray White person. Vern introduced us among others to the one we finally purchased and guided us to a successful outcome. We have to say "all was not plain sailing" but with Vern's persistence on our behalf, including liaison with ray White Papatoetoe we became appreciative of his efforts as not just a Salesperson, but as a friend. This leaves us with no hesitation supporting him with our reference should they request it. Sincerely, Earle and Julia Mead.

I am extremely grateful for all the advice and guidance that you gave me during the sale of 43D Rimu Street, Te Kauwhata. I would never have been able to do it myself. I cannot thank you enough for all you did for me also the extras that had to be done which I would never have known about. I would not hesitate in recommending you to any future buyers that are looking to purchase a property in your area. If I was ever to sell a property I would always come to you Yours sincerely, Lorraine Roberts.

Just a quick email to express my delight at dealing with Vern, I was beginning to lose faith in real estate agents in the south until I met Vern. He is amazing to deal with, and is very knowledgeable in regards to property in the Franklin and Waikato districts. He is always prepared with the information you require, and gives you the full picture first time, every time. I look forward to working with Vern in the future.

Vern is reliable open and genuine about his approach in assisting his clients purchase the right properties for their needs i.e. investment (in our case). Vern is prompt in meeting his clients' needs even at short notice and always organizes or is flexible in accommodating his clients' needs. Vern has a friendly approachable manner and we feel we can always discuss issues both difficult and not so difficult with him.
Vern we would like to thank you so much for making the home buying process very easy! We drove past the property today and seen the "SOLD" sticker up. Gave us chills of excitement.

Vern has been extremely awesome with being caring and efficient with the recent sale of my property. Vern has gone out of his way ensuring all parties' needs are met, I am so grateful for Vern going out of his was for me and the buyer, truly remarkable, I assumed Vern was senior management with the prompt high quality service he has delivered.
Vern – is more than helpful in the process, he isn't pushy and then goes out of his way in the process. Rather than a real estate agent who is just interested in selling you something, Vern finds you what YOU are after. I will recommend Vern to anyone, especially first home buyers in the Franklin area.
Vern appeared very professional. He made us feel comfortable, keeping us up to date and explaining very clearly on what's going on. We would be very happy to have him again. We would advise people to go to Ray White and ask for Vern when they wish to buy or sell. We wish him good luck and hope that he gets lots of good customers. 100% from us both and our daughter Belinda will agree with us. Many many thanks Very for everything.
