You have an important real estate decision to make... and my team and I are here to help you, and to ensure your success. We’re passionate about finding the perfect match for you, and we have a wealth of local knowledge and real estate expertise to make it happen.

Selling Dannemora and Howick comes naturally to me as I am born and bred in the area and now enjoying raising my own family here. I have been in real estate since 1996, starting in sales at the Papatoetoe branch. I progressed into management on the Pohutukawa Coast, prior to opening the Dannemora branch in 2004.

I’m proud to say I follow in the footsteps of my mother, father and grandfather working for Barfoot & Thompson. Honesty, trust and integrity have been the foundation of Barfoot & Thompson for over 80 years, and that tradition still runs strongly in how we do business.

We also believe in investing in, as well as supporting, our community. We are proud to be supporting several local schools and individual sports teams, and we are a premier sponsor of the Howick & Pakuranga Cricket Club (HPCC). The Club provides an outstanding resource to the wider community and we are delighted to be able to assist them in their goals.
