Barfoot & Thompson celebrates family with TV ONE's Our First Home

Family owned real estate company Barfoot & Thompson is putting its support behind an exciting new television show that celebrates what is at the very core of its business – the importance of family and the great things they can achieve together.

Barfoot & Thompson will join as a supporting partner of TV ONE’s Our First Home, airing from February. The fresh new multi-night series follows three Kiwi families as they put everything on the line to help their children take their first tentative steps onto the property ladder.

Managing Director of the multi-generational family business Peter Thompson says the show’s focus and format is a great match with the company and its values.

"Family has always been at the heart of Barfoot & Thompson – both its inner workings and in our day to day efforts to help Aucklanders buy and sell their homes over the last 90 years.

"The properties on our books aren’t just jobs – they are often a first home lovingly renovated, a cherished family home where children were raised, or the next exciting chapter in a family’s life, and that’s really important to us and how we work.

"There is much more to real estate than placing ads and landing the gavel on auction day. Good salespeople are valuable allies and supporters to both buyers and sellers throughout what is often an emotional journey."
