Barfoot & Thompson

Let me tell you a bit about the great real estate company I work for: 

Barfoot & Thompson is New Zealand’s largest privately owned real estate company, still family owned after more than 80 years. Built on the guiding principles of honesty, integrity and service, we make one simple promise – to deliver the very best results for our clients. And our results speak for themselves. In the 12 months to March 2007 we sold more than $6.7 billion worth of Auckland and Northland residential and commercial property … that’s over $18 million a day.When it comes to selling property in this region, we can’t be beaten. Our 60+ branches and more than 1000 salespeople hold more than a thousand open homes every weekend. With that sort of reach you can pretty much guarantee there’ll be Barfoot & Thompson properties you want to look at in your chosen location every weekend of the year.

Our comprehensive branch network means we’re part of your community. We pride ourselves on having people who are easy to deal with, give sound advice and provide good information about the properties they represent. Our salespeople are experts in their local areas. They’re able to offer local knowledge about important amenities such as shops, schools and recreation in order to help match you with the perfect property. After all, we don’t want you to just buy a house with us; we want you to feel comfortable allowing us to manage all your future property transactions. We want you to be a Barfoot & Thompson client for life.

Residential – On average Barfoot & Thompson sells around one in every three homes in and around Auckland*. During the 2006 financial year more than 15,600 residential home owners entrusted our team of professional salespeople with one of their most valuable assets, their homes.

Country & Coastal – We have a dedicated service of 75 salespeople encompassing the coastal, rural and lifestyle sector from Franklin to the Far North.
