Barfoot & Thompson have been part of Otahuhu since 1962, and today's diverse team reflects the multicultural makeup of this vibrant suburb.
Since the office opened its doors over 50 years ago, Barfoot & Thompson Otahuhu has continued to grow alongside the local community. Today, they help more people buy and sell properties in the area than any other real estate agency.
Branch Manager Avind Lal says this comes down to the team's high level of local knowledge and real estate experience. They are also able to relate to customers from all backgrounds and ethnicities, and work with the wide variety of properties that Otahuhu has to offer - from old character bungalows and villas to modern homes and waterfront properties.
As part of the Barfoot & Thompson network, they also have access to the selling power of 1,400 salespeople across Auckland and Northland. Because Barfoot & Thompson is a non franchised agency, all staff work for the company rather than for individual franchises. This means that listings and information are shared among all 60+ branches - so they have more direct contact with Aucklanders wanting to buy and sell homes than anyone else.
With Otahuhu offering still affordable homes, it is a popular choice with first home buyers, as well as investors looking for good value rental properties. The growing Barfoot & Thompson rentals team offers dedicated property managers to help look after all aspects of your rental or investment property - or to help you find the perfect home.
One of Auckland’s oldest suburbs, Otahuhu was established in 1849 and has developed into an exciting and multicultural community. The palm lined, cobblestoned main street offers some of the best ethnic eateries in Auckland, and market day every Thursday attracts people from across the city.
Otahuhu has a number of good primary and intermediate schools. Otahuhu College is also one of Auckland's oldest schools, and prestigious Kings College also has its home here. Otahuhu offers many parks and reserves, two golf clubs and a recreation and fitness centre
