Dutch van Geuns
Kia Ora to all
Service & Loyalty are the key to Selling Success. I start with listening to the customer and client.
Selling is what I love to do best and I love the challenges entrusted to me through 20 years of real estate on the North Shore. Year on year I have enjoyed referral and repeat business, from countryside lifestyle properties to 1 bedroom rental units, which comes directly from having given excellence in service to my clients and customers. That's my mandate to continue into the future.
'International investors and ex pats holding rental property on the North Shore'. If you are ready for a change in your investment strategy and you want to sell your property either on Auckland's North Shore or West Auckland then I can help you too.
No matter what company you have managing your property I can liase with them to meet the tenants, appraise the home, make recommendations and bring the home into the Barfoot & Thompson portfolio of available property for sale in a timely manner. Our extraordinary market share means more qualified buyers working with a vastly greater sales force. We are Auckland's leading real estate company and can be found here at www.barfoot.co.nz.
The same commitment is there if you are also considering the purchase of property on The Shore.
With an ageing population I am particularly aware of the need today to protect the interests of our aged or older generation who may not have the support of any family nearby. It's about less speed and more care and I would recommend family members refer me to their solicitors or trustees when they are considering a selling option for parents and relatives. I care and I can help you as I have helped many elderly and interesting kiwis over the years glide through the process of selling the family home.
Satisfied, exciting sales result from discipline, commitment, belief, organisation and service.
My 20 years of service to New Zealanders in the Royal New Zealand Navy (1971-1991) where I also worked for two and a half years in navy rental housing ( 515 units and homes ), gave me the skill set needed to negotiate, advise and sell on your behalf.
If you believe my attributes suit you, or your families need to sell, please call or communicate with me today.
My warmest and most sincere regards...

Dutch was amazing - advising and then helping me with making my property as attractive as possible for potential buyers. He explained and was with me every step of the way until the auction and as the property had been tenanted he checked on it until settlement. It was a stressful time as it was the first house I had ever sold but he kept me positive and grounded. He certainly at all times went over and above what I expected an estate agent to do. He was always so cheerful and am sure was because of him that the auction price exceeded my expectations. Thank you so very much again, Dutch.

We recently sold our home with Barfoot and Thompson. We were fortunate enough to have Dutch van Geuns recommended to us and so we listed with him. We are so happy with our decision, Dutch is passionate about doing his best for the vendors. It was obvious that he enjoyed marketing our property and this was reflected in his enthusiasm and commitment to the process.
Dutch kept us up to date on an ongoing basis, letting us know how the open homes were going, giving us feedback on the presentation of our home and also on the clientele who were showing interest in our home. His calm, friendly yet very professional approach was fantastic, he said it how it was and this was exactly the approach we were hoping for. I couldn't recommend Dutch enough and will certainly list with him again if we are selling.
We also found that having a listing with Barfoot and Thompson hugely advantageous as there are so many real estate agents employed in this company. Our home was only on the market for three weeks but we found that there was ongoing activity with agents coming through our home with different clients during that time. A great experience overall!
I found Dutch helpful, supportive, and very friendly, He kept me up to date with the market and what
was happening constantly. I felt he cared about doing the best he possibly could for me at all times, and I appreciate his attention and help through the whole process.
I would recommend him to any of my friends. I am glad he was recommended to me and he did not disappoint as I had
heard that he took a pride in doing his best for his client.

"Just like to say I am very happy with the service I received from Dutch he really dose go the extra mile his passion for real estate is amazing I have been lucky enough to have Dutch help purchase a property also sell I would highly recommend Dutch to any one looking for an honest trustworthy agent.I certainly had a stress free experience."
Janet - Glenfield
"I found Dutch to be very polite and direct. Everything he told me happened and the price reached.
I am more than happy with his service and handling of my Glenfield property and would not hesitate to recommend him to other buyers and sellers if the occasion arose."
Marie - Glenfield
"I found Dutch to be very easy to talk to and most of all really helpful in aspects of my sale and would have no hesitation in recommending him to others wanting to sell or even just information on selling their property."
Ian - Glenfield
"After a previous poor real estate experience, Darren James selected Dutch as a suitable person to work with us, and he was without doubt a perfect choice. He is extremely knowledgeable about our type of house and how best to market it. I was disappointed for Dutch the final sale was achieved by another Barfoot & Thompson agent and this was no reflection on Dutch at all as he put a huge amount of work into achieving a result for us and I feel he deserved to get the sale for himself on performance alone.
Dutch demonstrated a very strong knowledge of the market and what would be required to get our house sold. He
proved absolutely correct in every statement he made. He followed through on everything and was excellent to deal with. I appreciated his honesty & straight up no painting unrealistic pictures approach with his instruction on what we needed to do to assist the process."
Clinton - Greenhithe
"Dutch has bought and sold property for me for many years.He has always gone the extra mile for me and I'm sure he would do for you as well. The thing I appreciate the most is Dutch always spot on with advice ,good or bad and overall does a fantastic job.He generally achieves the maximum price the market will pay."
Betty - Hillcrest
"Dutch made the daunting task of selling for the first time a much easier task. He took away the stress and was always on hand to deal with any questions and helped with advice on preparing the property for sale as well as physically giving a hand. Always had a smile and nothing was too much trouble. I would recommend him to others without any hesitation."
Judi - Pinehill
"Thank you for the fantastic job that you did with your marketing and selling but mainly your understanding and support in what was a difficult situation."
Vicky & Paul - Bayview
"Dutch was recommended to us by family and we met with him as well as a couple of other agents. After the initial meetings we felt Dutch was the most honest, upfront and understanding of our situation. It also helped that he didn't pester me as the other agents were doing which is something I hate! Dutch gave us the time we needed to sort things out and get the house ready for marketing but still keeping in touch and keeping us on track in the declining market. The marketing plan was great for our property and Dutch and Lin worked hard at open homes and in between weeks to garner decent interest in the property and also gave us sound advice on the offers and our best possible options. Overall highly recommend Dutch for any property purchases or sales."
Christine & Bill - Glenfield
"We were impressed with Dutch when we started looking at a property to buy a couple of years ago. He was very helpful and it was no trouble to visit a particular property and revisiting to check out a variety of things was made an easy process. I immediately thought of him when it came time to sell our own property and have not been disappointed.
There are many real estate agents out there but it is great to have someone who is experienced, knowledgeable and shows genuine interest. I would not hesitate to recommend Dutch to anyone wanting to buy or sell a property."
Katie & Ben - Bayview
"Dutch was fantastic, the work he put into selling our property was exceptional. He guided us step by step through the process of selling our first home which has been fairly stressful for us and he has been there every step of the way with support, guidance and information. Dutch went above and beyond our expectations of what a real estate agent would do for us and we would definitely use him again if we were to sell in this area. Thank you!"
Paul & Janet - Bayview
"Dutch was always available whenever we had a query, he was very thorough, and although selling a house is not something one can really judge as it is over 10 years since we previously sold a property, everything went well and we would not hesitate to contact Dutch again should we have a property to sell in Auckland."
Dorothy & Colin - Bayview
"It is hard to quantify the warm regard my wife and I have for Dutch. He has always given service and help way beyond the normal. Long may he reign! Dorothy & Colin Gladman."
Murray - Glenfield
"Dutch is a great agent and will go the extra mile."
OR & BM Properties Ltd - Browns Bay
"We enlisted Dutch to sell our apartment on the North Shore for us. Although the sales period was over the Christmas/New Year break Dutch worked right through for us, and ensured no leads were missed. Dutch worked hard to ensure we achieved our desired price. We would not hesitate to recommend Dutch."
Martin & Teresa - Glenfield
"We chose to use Dutch as he had been very professional and helpful when we bought a property a few years ago. We have now had much more contact with Dutch and have found him to be the very best example of a real estate agent. His knowledge far exceeded our expectations and his friendly and approachable nature made the whole experience very easy for us. We always felt that he had our best interests in mind and were entirely confident taking his advice. He worked incredibly hard for us and we were very glad that we had chosen to use him. We would most certainly recommend Dutch to anyone looking to buy or sell a property and we thoroughly enjoyed our time with him. He has an open invitation to visit us in Rotorua anytime!"
Sue - Glenfield, Birkdale, Birkenhead
"This is the third property Dutch has helped me sell this year. I would highly recommend him to any buyer as he goes beyond what is expected of him to be helpful and supportive and is very knowledgeable about the local market. I have now moved out of the area but I am sure if I needed advise in the future Dutch would not hesitate to help again."
Pam - Birkenhead
"Dutch van Geuns has performed remarkably well in achieving a great price for my property. I have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone. Thanks a lot Dutch, appreciate all the hard work you have put in to get a successful sale on my home. Cheers, Pam."
