Kumi Thanthirige

Agent Representative  

Providing 100% commitment to client satisfaction has always been my motivation.
With 20 years in real estate management on marketing and customer relations Kumi is committed to delivering the same exceptional service that she has consistently provided her customers over her years in business.

Kumi has a long-standing passion for real estate so the move to working for Eves Whangarei felt a natural career change. Through buying and selling her own large and small lifestyle properties as well as going through the first home buying process with both her children she has gained knowledge on both sides of the real estate process.

Buying and selling real estate can often be an emotional journey that requires compassion and commitment both of which are strong attributes Kumi will bring to her new career. Her passion and energy for everything she does is evident from her business and family achievements.

“A mother to two adult children I have always been out in the community supporting their sporting commitments from soccer/hockey to Equestrian where they both produced and sold horses which enabled them to get into the property market. I am currently sponsor and manager of Old Girls Prem Hockey and enjoy the involvement of being part of the team and seeing the players develop over the season.”

    The gap in real estate practice was clearly a lack of diversity. Mostly male and very traditional real estate practice was not appealing to every client. EWRE was created to address the need for a more democratic and collaborative real estate style greater with a greater sense of corporate social responsibility. Embracing an e-commerce platform, the new online business offers residential, commercial and rental services for a boundaryless property market. EWRE also wants to build the coveted village vibe that families love through collaboration that is 21st century.


    Our Team


    The EWRE team is primarily women form diverse backgrounds and experiences. Whilst we would love men to come and join us the goal must remain – a broader offering for clients. We value both male and female perspectives when buying and selling property.


    Clearly men and women place different values on property attributes. Recognising and delivering what all parties want is our major point of difference. When listing we provide insights to vendors that their buyers want and ensure those are the focus of out presentations. The EWRE team recognise buyer and seller anxieties and work tirelessly to reduce tensions and create calm transacting environments.
