Aaron Cook

#5. Sales Partnership, Central Auckland Region, year ending 31 March 2016

It takes just one look at Aaron's background to see that he is an entrepreneur ...

By the age of 21, Aaron had saved up and purchased his first investment apartment, and since that time he has gone on to buy numerous properties - all of which have been profitable.

Aaron along with his Wife Betty Shao founded a website called, where upcoming writers can showcase their manuscripts to gain valuable market feedback and awareness for themselves and their work. Book lovers are able to read, rate and comment on the un-published books, and those that prove to be popular may end up being published.

Aaron's achievements earlier in his career, as one of the top advertising consultants with the NZ Herald's Community publication - The Aucklander, has provided him the foundation for excellence. His passion for buying and selling property and his flair for out of the box thinking lead him to a career as a real estate salesperson.

Since joining the real estate profession, Aaron has successfully used his advertising experience to advise clients on the most effective way to market their properties.

Aaron attributes his success in real estate to his desire to listen to his clients' needs and offer effective, real-world solutions. His clients appreciate his professional service, his positive can-do attitude and his energy. He is committed to achieving the outcome his clients are after and will work hard to ensure they become life long clients.

Aaron joined Barfoot & Thompson because of their credibility in the market place and because they are set up to provide their clients with the best possible service. When someone lists a property with Barfoot & Thompson, they not only get a dedicated salesperson but a network of over 1200 salespeople who are all connected to potential buyers in the market place.

Aaron and his wife Betty both work together in real estate. Over the last number of years they have established themselves as some of the top Auckland City Apartment and penthouse apartment sales specialists with Barfoot & Thompson. They also sell properties on Auckland's North Shore where they live. Betty speaks Mandarin which is a huge advantage for helping Chinese customers and clients. Together they make an unbeatable team.

"I would like to compliment you on your utmost professionalism and most of all your communicative skills. I have bought and sold many homes over the years and you would have to be one of the finest articulate agents I have ever dealt with. Never once did I have to contact you in need, because you always beat me to it, with your constant supply of keeping me updated with all the relevant information you had at hand, and I must say this is a rarity these days. Most of my dealings were with you direct as your wife Betty was overseas for most of the time, however initially I also had a lot of dealings with Betty also, and found you both superb working as a team. Betty was extremely efficient and I also found her to be at the highest end of being professional in all my dealings with her.
Would I deal with you again ????? HELL YES. !!!!!
What more can I say but thankyou, thankyou thankyou."
Warm Regards

"I would like to put in writing how excellent we found Aaron Cook and Betty Shao in the process of selling our property. Their approach was very professional and particularly pleasing how they dealt with the tenant living in the property. Their reports were frequent and helpful. I would like to nominate them for salespeople of the month or year if you have such an award. We would be pleased to have them put this on their website if they would like to do so. Thank You."

"Aaron was thoroughly professional, and realistically honest in what he thought our property would sell for. He then provided us with avenues to maximize the potential of our property and its sale, through a sound advertising campaign, coupled with exceptional staging of the property. This resulted in a sale price that exceeded our expectations. His feedback during the whole process was exceptional, enabling us to make key decisions that given our geographical separation from the property gave us a high degree of comfort that we were in very safe and trustworthy hands."

A job well done Aaron, and we wish you continued success with your future endeavours"
The Bennett family

"As some of us already know selling or buying a property can be a very stressful time in life. Having Aaron on board as our agent has taken all the stress away for us. He has a very professional approach and will also help you with the little things like presenting the property. With his guidance and great attitude he helped us achieve a sale within a week of us putting our property on the market. If you want a sharp agent that will deliver results then Aaron is your man."
Donna and Garry

"Aaron was always very approachable to answer any questions, he followed up by phone following emails to ensure we understood what was being discussed as well as keeping us fully informed of changes happening within the Auckland property market, which was very helpful as we live outside the Auckland area. Thanks Aaron for taking the stress out of selling our property, we would not hesitate to recommend you to friends etc. Thanks a million!"

"I wanted to speak to somebody that was experienced and understood the Central Auckland apartment market. As part of that enquiry I spoke to a number of real estate firms, Barfoot & Thompson being one of them. I rang your head office and they referred me to you. We had a discussion and you forwarded me your listings and we went from there. I have to say Barfoot & Thompson offered the most professional service and your personal advice and integrity was quite superior to the three or four others that I also talked too."
