Anyone who has considered buying real estate in Mangawhai has probably encountered Craig Matheson. On first impression you could be forgiven for not recognising him as a top performing salesperson, yet beyond the casual look and relaxed manner you will find a human dynamo in operation.

Craig specialises in the coastal haven of Mangawhai where he has lived for the past 27 years and is well known. His involvement in the Mangawhai Golf Club, where he was Club Captain for two years, means he has a wide base of clients and customers. His community involvement extends to generous sponsorship of the golf club, junior golf, bowls, primary school and local events/teams.

Craig's passion for matching people and places made him one of Barfoot & Thompson's top performing salespeople seven years in a row. He has a genuine interest in people and property. There are no airs and graces with Craig - he wears shorts all year round (footwear changes with the season from jandals to gumboots) but he does the business and loves it!

Craig loves the area - it is a water lovers paradise and a great place to bring up children. Mangawhai's proximity to the Auckland makes it an attractive place for Auckland people to retreat to at the weekends and for summer holidays - a seaside destination brimming with possibilities whatever your interest. We are also seeing more and more people commuting.

Craig and Paula have been working side by side for approximately 14 years. They work to strengths and make for a proven combination with consistently high performance results. They have both been salespeople in the industry for 17 years and have a long established strong presence in the area.

Craig uses his common sense approach, knowledge of the area, work ethic, sense of humour, contacts in the rural and business community and high values to match up the right people with the right property.


Craig Matheson represented us in the recent sale of our lifestyle section. We have great respect for Craig's vast knowledge and experience in the Mangawhai property market. Without hesitation we highly recommend any vendor to enlist Craig's help in selling their property. He is without doubt the "Go to Man" for Real Estate sales in the Mangawhai and Kaiwaka areas. His advice and recommendations when we were having trouble selling were invaluable and the nearly instant results when we took that advice, spoke for themselves. He's also partial to sweet treats if you feel inclined to show your appreciation.
Mark and Margaret
