We resolve disputes

Because property management is our area of expertise, and as members of the Real Estate Institute we understand the legislative ins and outs so can deal with any issues that arise quickly and effectively. 

When required, our property managers represent our landlords at mediation and tenancy tribunal hearings. 

I never have to worry about my rentals as the team at Barfoot & Thompson are on top of all the issues. I just get the statements at the end of the month, which is exactly the service I want.

You can trust that your money is in good hands

Handling of all rental funds is managed through our head office accounting department. And, unlike many other property management companies, all money collected on your behalf is held in an audited trust account - so you know where it is at any time. 

Barfoot & Thompson Ltd is also licensed under the Real Estate Agents Act 2008.

We have the local knowledge

Because our property managers are based in Barfoot & Thompson branches across Auckland and Northland, they understand their local rental market, have access to a wide portfolio of potential tenants, and can keep an eye on your property easily. 

Every branch has support staff that can assist you should your property manager be out of the office.
