Yvenna Yue and Craig Annandale | Lead Agents

It’s not hard to see why Yvenna & Craig’s team are the #1 Harcourts team central region year-to-date. Their passion and competence in navigating the fast paced and multicultural nature of Hamilton’s housing market are evident in their ability to provide consistently excellent outcomes for their clients.

Yvenna & Craig are no strangers to hard work and have a genuine passion for people and are able to communicate effortlessly with people from all walks of life. They know that creating great relationships based on honesty and integrity is just as important in business as it is in every other part of life.

Prior to her career in real estate, Yvenna was an entrepreneur, successfully establishing several retail gift and food outlets, and building an extensive network of social and business contacts in Hamilton’s Kiwi and Chinese communities. Originally from Shanghai, Yvenna moved to Hamilton early 2000 to study a Bachelor of Management Studies at Waikato University and soon fell in love with NZ, moving here permanently. Yvenna considers the love and support of her husband and children a crucial balance to her active real estate lifestyle.

Waikato-local Craig also earned his degree at Waikato University, completing a Bachelor of Communication Studies majoring in marketing and human resource management. His intimate local knowledge of Hamilton’s suburbs,communities, homes and people mean Craig is always up-to-play with the market. Craig contributes a large part of his success to his strongest skill: his ability to connect with a wide range of people.


With Yvenna’s networking and business savvy skills alongside Craig’s marketing know-how and intimate local knowledge, they make an unbeatable team.
