Dirk Merwe - Mount Sales Specialist

A rare force in the Real Estate industry.


Transparent and personable

No matter the value of your property, we have a commitment to SIX STAR, end to end service. Faultless communication is a non-negotiable and regular repeat and referral business would indicate that we do what we do, pretty well! Our team agrees that no one client is less important than the next so we make a commitment to you to ‘cap’ the number of properties we market, ensuring you get our undivided attention, every time. You deserve it.

Teaming up with Dirk is his Sales Associate, Sam Watherston and their superstar Executive Assistant, Bronwyn Penn. Dirk, Sam and Bronwyn all come from varied and successful backgrounds and bring a number of very different yet complementary skill sets to the table; more ‘bang for your buck’, as it were. Having Bronwyn diligently working in the background on your campaign and managing the team, Sam acting as support salesperson, and Dirk operating as lead salesperson means no stone is left unturned - all the T’s are crossed and I’s dotted. The secret to success in life is aligning yourself with complementary people, and our ability to do that is your gain.

Dirk is proud to hold the record for the most lucrative sale of a non-beachfront property here in Mount Maunganui, and as a team we hold multiple record street sales throughout the Bay of Plenty. This said, our affable and contemporary approach to real estate also sees notable traction and success across all price brackets. Often being recognised as one of the high achievers demonstrates that a whole lot of people, just like you, have already reaped the benefits of our SIX STAR service. We look forward to making you the next.

Not only do we have extensive personal databases with loyal and well-conditioned buyers at the ready, we are proud to be a part of the Realty Services Group. With this affiliation comes access to the databases of every agent across the EVES and Bayleys brands. We challenge you to find another local company that can offer you equivalent coverage.


Dirk Merwe

Residential Sales Specialist

Dirk is not just a regular real estate agent. His straight-talking authenticity combined with his strategic thinking, success, vibrant personality and unforgetable humour makes your real estate journey less stressful and, yes, more fun! This is why Dirk’s clients come back time after time to work with him – Dirk delivers.
Dirk’s success comes from his drive to get the best results for you - which in straight-up terms means the best result for him too. This means different things for different clients which is where Dirk’s exceptional communication works wonders. Whether selling or buying (or both) Dirk gets to know your unique circumstances so that he can execute the best sales and marketing strategy for you. He has expertise in selling a wide range of properties from smaller first-homes, vacant land to high-end high-spec homes, all with fantastic outcomes for his clients.
Dirk goes above and beyond to ensure you are 100% prepared to buy and sell so that you get the best result. His advice on how you can best prepare your property for sale, what to look for in a property and contacts for local, reliable trades people, valuers and brokers come as standard when you work with Dirk.
What isn’t standard is Dirk’s innovative perspective on real estate. One of his favourite sayings is “You can’t do the same thing over and over again and expect different results.” He takes different approaches for different situations and clients which is why he gets A+ outcomes.
When you meet Dirk, you might wonder from where he hails. His accent tells the story that he’s lived in different countries before finding his forever home in stunning Mount Maunganui back in 2005. Before Real Estate, Dirk worked in radio, BOP Rugby and RWC 2011 so is a familiar face to many in the area – if he doesn’t see someone (or 10) that he knows while out walking the Mount with his family, at the supermarket or enjoying the Mounts restaurants, it’s unusual!
