"Ling, I am very grateful to you for "holding my hand" so to speak through my recent property sale! I have had experience of several sales in my lifetime, but never, never, have I had help and support from real estate agents like I had with you! You kept me informed all the time, and really gave me strength through the auction. My appreciation is such, that I would recommend your services to all my friends and associates with enthusiasm. I can't sing you praises highly enough! Thank you so much. You made my sale so much more than a pleasure!"
"Ling was recommended to us. We found her to be excellent. She delivered on everything promised. Ling was a joy to work with, very patient, very calm, very respectful."
Anthony & Helen Barry
"Ling was chosen by us through observing her performance at open homes in the area. Ling’s professional approach and courteous manner won our confidence that she could provide the marketing and negotiating skills we required. The quality of Ling’s reporting and excellent communication kept us fully informed and she also spent considerable effort in keeping prospective buyers focused on our property. It is with considerable pleasure that I highly recommend Ling to any prospective client of Barfoot & Thompson."

"My wife and I found Ling helpful, friendly, professional and an absolutely lovely person to work with. We would have no hesitation in using her service again."
Paul and Denise Meyer
"Ling has a beautiful spirit that transcends into her work with people. We found that Ling not only uses her personal and professional integrity when working with the seller, but equally works to ensure that the buyer also benefits from the same professional and personal integrity. Her way of working certainly built a strong relationship and trust that we could relate to throughout the process. Barfoot & Thompson you have scored yourselves an asset that many will aspire to. Well done Ling, keep up the good work!"
Garath and Fiona Peel
"Ling is a very honest, highly committed, knowledgeable and superbly professional property agent. We came to New Zealand about 3 years ago and our knowledge of Auckland was very limited at that time. We were introduced to Ling by one of her former clients. Her vast knowledge in property business, her warm, friendly personality and honesty have won our hearts and trust. The property she found for us was a true testimony of her hard work and commitment. We are very confident in referring Ling to friends and relatives. We wish to deal again with Ling in the future should opportunities arise."
Yudi and Sari Andajani
"As first time sellers in New Zealand we were slightly apprehensive about what to expect but we needn't have worried. Ling was so professional from the start and enthusiastic about achieving a good outcome for us. Her approachable manner was much appreciated and the way that she dealt with potential buyers in our home showed great customer service. All in all, it has been a very positive experience. We would like to recommend Ling as being a great ambassador for Barfoot and Thompson. She kept us well informed all through the process of selling our property with written reports each week which helped us to make the right decisions.
Thank you Ling, for all your hard work."
Paul & Kim Shearwood
"Ling went out of her way to assist us in every direction. She kept us well informed as to what was the next step. We are very pleased with our sale and purchase at the short period of time.
In short, we have our peace of mind working together with Ling since we know she will do her best for our benefit."
Martha and Eddy Chuardy
"We are writing to express our appreciation on Ling's help in the last 3-4 months. Ling helped us in getting 9 Heyington Way to be our new dwelling, and sold 14 Caltra Place, our much loved property in the last 12 years.
We found that Ling is the most trusted estate agent we have dealt so far. She has been very approachable and most professional in presenting herself and thus Barfoot and Thompson.
She listened to us to understand what we were looking for in finding our new house to live in, and during the search for our new house she was very patience and calm, yet she was enthusiastic to present us with many available options. While putting our house on the market, again she has proven herself to be trustworthy and was able to find buyer within a week.
Both Mimi and I felt that on a few weeks dealing with Ling, she was able to understand us as if we had known each other for years. We would like to say once again, our sincere thanks to her, and our wish to deal with her again in the future should opportunities arise."
Mie Mie Sutatio and Budiarsa Lesmana
"This is the first time we sell our house. Ling provides us with lots of information about selling a house that we should be aware and to know the strategy. She is very hardworking, professional, responsible and the most important thing is very trustworthy. We are very happy to let Ling handle the selling of our house and of course, the outcome is fantastic.
Thanks Ling, wish you & your family all the best."
