Best Lettings Agency - Asia Pacific

In recognition of providing the best property management services in the Asia Pacific region.

Recognising our commitment to excellence on the international stage

Barfoot & Thompson was awarded these top accolades over global giants CBRE and Savills, as well as Australia's 1st City. 

"We are a family business in a remote corner of the world, but our win shows that we can compete on the world stage when it comes to real estate," says Managing Director Peter Thompson. 

"We are extremely proud to be recognised by our peers for the international standard of service our clients receive, something many home-grown businesses aspire to. New Zealand produces excellent business people, and I'm fortunate to be surrounded by people who are driven, ingenious and authentic. This is because of where we come from, not in spite of it," said Mr Thompson.
