Genuine and respectful, Aaron is dedicated to serving others with excellence. His successes come from a strong work ethic, a drive to succeed and a commitment to deliver a positive real estate experience. He knows what makes people tick and works with passion and enthusiasm for his clients. His significant knowledge of the local area and willingness to help people no matter what it takes, translates to consistent repeat and referral business.

Understanding what it is to walk in the shoes of his clients, Aaron has an entrepreneurial background in residential real estate investment, renovating and selling his own properties all across Auckland. These credentials provided a good foundation for his role at Barfoot & Thompson following a successful 23-year career in the printing industry. Born and raised in the City of Sails, he has always had a special affinity with the eastern suburbs where he still lives with Vanessa and their two young sons.
We have had the pleasure to work with Aaron twice in the past. We first met when my partner and I bought our first property in 2019. We were nervous about the process and had met many salespeople who were pushy and disingenuous but we found Aaron very polite and honest, a refreshing change! When my parents wanted to sell their Mission Bay property in 2020, I was more than happy to recommend Aaron to them. Their property was a tough one to sell and my parents did not make easy clients! But Aaron was patient and professional. He gave excellent advice, had great knowledge of the area and was so easy to communicate with. He even found documents in the property files that added value to the house we didn't know it had. Thank you Aaron for all your hard work. We only have great things to say!Mia - October 2021
Aaron is a true professional with a relaxed and genuine style. Nothing was a problem for Aaron, he made the sales process simple with positive guidance throughout. Aaron has a great understanding of the local market and constantly kept us up-to-date with viewers feedback and potential properties for us to purchase. We would highly recommend Aaron to anyone considering selling or purchasing a property in the Bays.Steve & Rosie - July 2021
Our rental property was marketed unsuccessfully by another real estate agency three years ago. Aaron touched base with us at the time but we decided to remove the house from the market. Since then, Aaron has stayed in contact with us. When we decided to sell the property this time, Aaron was the only salesperson we wanted to use. His success in selling houses in the Bays and his reputation preceded him.
Aaron’s quiet, controlled nature as well as his vast experience and network, helped sell our property with a pre-auction offer being made and then superceded with a vigorous auction which exceeded our expectations.
We would have no hesitation in recommending Aaron to anyone wanting to sell their property and when we come to sell our family home will definitely be contacting Aaron.Vanessa & Mark - September 2021
Aaron came recommended to us by friends and we have no hesitation in recommending him as well. He is very polite and professional in every way, assisting us with preparation of our home and his accurate appraisal, presentation and marketing of our property resulted in a timely and successful sale.Mary & Max W - July 2021
We had a challenging property for Aaron to market, which was evident with the number of interested parties falling through. This didn’t phase Aaron and his dedication and professionalism was impressive. He didn’t sugar coat or give us any exaggerated expectations and was in constant communication throughout the process. He stayed relaxed and positive at every twist and turn! I would highly recommend Aaron as your chosen salesperson – you won't be disappointed.Paul & Kat - June 2021
We would like to express our satisfaction with the service which Aaron provided, to sell our property in Orakei while we are living in the UK. We were pleased with his proactive approach and professional way in which the property was marketed and the sale process was moved forward. The whole experience was stress-free, and more importantly, the house was sold for more than we had wished for within 10 days!Ran & Chris - October 2020
Having worked with Aaron on the sale of our Remuera property (June, 2020) during all of the uncertainty of Covid, I can thoroughly recommend him. He is authentic, dedicated and results oriented.
Aaron is professional but highly personable and caring in his approach. He is credible and knowledgeable of his market (providing an incredibly accurate estimate of sale price), and utilised the best and most up-to-date tools at his disposal as well as his extensive network to ensure a good outcome was achieved.
In addition to providing guidance through what is already a stressful process, Aaron was managing a sale process as an unfortunate result of a relationship separating. His communication throughout was top notch, setting realistic expectations but also keeping all parties informed at all times which made the sale process easy with no surprises.
Aaron's many professional accolades are clearly well deserved. His proactive approach ensured all open homes and the auction had strong attendance from engaged buyers and this resulted in a sale at auction $200k higher than the purchase price only 12 months prior.
Aaron, thank you for your help, care and dedication. I look forward to working with you again.Hannah Ealson - August 2020
Aaron was recommended to us by a friend as a top salesperson when we were selling our property in May/June of this year. We were not disappointed. Aaron presented us with excellent advice and an impressive and innovative marketing plan, he was professional and courteous. Our property sold very quickly with a pre-auction offer. We would recommend Aaron and Barfoot & Thompson unconditionally.Steven & Margaret Norman - June 2020
Aaron was recommended to me by a neighbour as an excellent agent when I was selling my house last September/October. I was not disappointed. He was courteous and very helpful as I had not experienced the real estate market for nearly 30 years. His energy was amazing and he was very helpful with ideas to market my property. My property sold very quickly with a pre-auction offer. I can recommend Aaron & Barfoot & Thompson unconditionally.Sally Goldstone
Aaron carried out a very successful campaign to sell my mother's home in St Heliers in late 2019. She originally met Aaron when he was out meeting local neighbours one evening, and my mum instantly called me to say she had found the perfect man (to sell her house that is!). We met with Aaron and I agreed immediately that he possessed all the talents we felt were necessary - he was local, young and enthusiastic but equally importantly he could obviously sell. His track record spoke for itself. After only the first week of open homes, Aaron had a buyer for her. Aaron talked my mum through the process making sure he was clear and straight which was really appreciated due to my mum being in her 80's. The auction was brought forward and there were two very happy people in the auction room that day - a very happy vendor and a thrilled purchaser who cried with happiness. We can whole-heartedly recommend Aaron, if you want results and professionalism, he is the man for the job.Mary-Lou Duder
Thank you Aaron, it was so nice to work with a real professional on the purchase of our new home and especially the sale of our property in St Heliers. The efficient and enthusiastic manner with which you conducted our campaign achieved an excellent result at Auction. You were constantly in contact with us and kept us up-to-date with everything, nothing seemed to be too much trouble which was very comforting.
We would without hesitation deal with you again in the future and confidently recommend you to both family and friends.Paul & Donna Davison
Aaron Foss was recommended to me as a good land agent when I was first considering selling my property. I found Aaron to be well presented, a focussed, well organised and quietly confident person.
Until I was ready to put the property on the market, Aaron kept me informed of house property activity. At the point of being ready to sell, Aaron was very efficient, informing me promptly of all the requirements and procedures. During the short time marketing the property, Aaron was punctilious at keeping me informed of all movement and supplying me with summaries of numbers attending and comments, both positive and negative, after each open home. He was always very approachable, responding to my questions and queries, both before and after the sale.
Aaron worked energetically for the sale and I wish him well in his future career in the real estate business.
Hi Aaron. I wanted to let you know I am very grateful for the way you conducted the sale process for our family home and how you treated my Mum over the last three weeks. Although we were very happy with the sale result for Mum, I felt I should personally thank you for treating a single older lady with the utmost respect and was grateful that she always felt comfortable and that you had her interests at top of mind. You communicated regularly and made all effort to help her through a process she hadn't ever had to go through.
A sale price does not reflect how good an agent is, that's dictated by the product and the market, which agents have little control over. Agents should be judged by their integrity and how they conduct themselves. Your boss should be very happy with you.
We can definitely recommend Aaron based on our experience as vendors and we would definitely take advantage of his expertise again should the need arise. He is enthusiastic without being pushy and very focussed and works hard to produce a sale. Aaron, to his credit, does not allow potential roadblocks to stall the process.Edith & Harry Cross
I first met Aaron when I was searching to buy a property. He was very helpful and proactive and while I didn't purchase our property with him when it was time to sell my house he was the obvious choice. He listened to me and our situation and didn't go down the usual auction route. Instead he opted for a sale by negotiation approach which was successful within a matter of three weeks being on the market. His style and approach is very relaxed, informal but very effective in terms of results.Anneka
We met Aaron when he was selling a house we were potentially interested in. He was engaging, informative, interested and chatty without being pushy. Aaron had some great ideas for marketing our home which he proposed respectfully and put forward suggestions that we hadn't considered to widen our exposure to the market. This was a difficult situation for Aaron as we didn't have time for a full campaign. During this time it was easy to feel like we were his sole clients (not the case!). His communication was immediate and thorough and he handled transactions between the sellers and us with aplomb and respect for both parties. We were really thrilled with the outcome and would definitely seek Aaron out to deal with in the future.J & L Somerville
The performance of our Agent, Aaron Foss who we had the pleasure of working with was absolutely outstanding. We met by chance and Aaron was immediately impressive. Not pushy, quiet, matter of fact, and quietly confident that our property would sell, even though it had been on the market previously with another company and did not sell. Over the past 50 years we have bought and sold several commercial and residential properties and in our opinion Aaron Foss would be one of the most professional agents we have worked with. Aaron was very well prepared asking for information and reports on our home as well as making suggestions to ensure we had the best possible chance to achieve the price we were happy with. During the negotiations with three prospective purchasers Aaron was very well supported by Teresa Weiss the Branch Manager of Mission Bay branch. Aaron kept in touch with us after the sale and we are very happy to provide our personal testimonial. We have already passed his name on to a number of friends who are planning to sell their homes in the near future. We wish Aaron all the best for his future.Judith and Graeme Kelly
Aaron was a brilliant help when finding and buying our house recently. During the search we met Aaron many times at various open homes and, whilst those houses weren't right for us, Aaron was great at following up with more suitable options for us to see. We felt like he really looked after us and knew what we wanted. Thanks for making the process so seamless Aaron! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Aaron whether you're buying or selling.Rebecca and Shannon
I met Aaron when enquiring about a property a couple of months ago. Aaron kept in touch with possible options for me in the area and made sure each option lined up with most of my wants and needs. I really appreciate that Aaron listened to what I was after and presented me options based on that. I recently purchased my home through Aaron and I couldn't be happier with it - there isn't a single box that was left unticked! Aaron made the process far less stressful than most with his professional, friendly and extremely helpful approach. If and when I decide to sell in the future - I'll definitely be in touch.
"Thank you very much for selling our house. We really appreciate all your effort that went into getting the house ready and most certainly the outcome - the service we got from you was top notch. Everything was seamless for us and being so far away that made all the difference to our experience. If anyone asks for an agent, we'll certainly be sending them your way!"Tim & Lily James August 2018
We highly recommend Aaron if you're looking to sell your home in the Bays. He's professional and honest and made us feel like we were in safe hands. Aaron created a heated campaign to sell our property with a large number of people through our home. We sold at auction and we were very pleased with Aaron's approach. He is easy to talk to and always open to suggestions. We never felt pushed into anything. The decision-making was in our hands, yet Aaron guided us through the process and was dedicated to selling our home within our short timeframe. Thanks Aaron.Katie and Tony ChapmanMany thanks
Aaron - You are so personable, professional and someone I feel I can trust - all very important when buying such a valuable asset.
Aaron recently sold our house. He went above and beyond to get the price we wanted. Aaron understands his clients and is a true professional. I would highly recommend Aaron to anyone thinking of selling. Five stars.Rebekah
Aaron was a pleasure to deal with. His enthusiasm, vision and energy were unquestionable. Throughout the sales process he was responsive and focused. We recommend him highly to any vendor.Lee & Tim Smyth
Professional; Informed; Helpful; Communicative; Honest (yes really!). What else can I say about Aaron Foss? Throughout the whole process of him marketing my property and also assisting me in buying my next family home Aaron displayed all of these characteristics. I cannot recommend him highly enough, if you are looking to either sell or purchase a home you can't go past Aaron. He is one of the good guys!Sandy
Just a few words to describe our experience in dealing with you as our Agent in selling our property in St Heliers. We found you a very professional individual who is extremely passionate about your work. We felt that you were very informative about the process from the start to the finish. You have a very good handle on the use of the marketing tools whether it be photos or the use of social media and that you maximised the use of these tools to get the best out
of the market. You also dealt well with pressure we gave you to produce a result for us and of course got us there! We would have no hesitation in recommending you!
"It is with great pleasure that I share my experience with Aaron Foss. I had the privilege of working with Aaron as my realtor when looking to buy a house in Meadowbank. Aaron's knowledge about real estate is multi-faceted and he most certainly does more than the average agent does, he went far beyond what I expected of him. I appreciated his ability and willingness to advise and help me throughout all steps of buying the house. Aaron was there to help and support me in every possible way. I would not hesitate to recommend him to any person who is looking to buy or sell a home, as well as seek his service in any of my future real estate transactions. While I have worked with few people I have never before encountered such a level of excellence, which truly set him apart from those whom I've dealt with previously".Saraby
As our life changes so do our requirements and after making the decision to move back to Auckland ( part time ) we were faced with the daunting task of what should we be looking at.
We did the normal thing looking at advertised homes and apartments thinking we could do this easily on our own, simple!
Because we had a 3 hour drive out from Auckland we tried to incorporate as many open homes and viewing as possible over the weekends. This was not going the way we hoped as all we seemed to be doing was confusing ourselves driving around and not staying within our limits.
One of our main requirements was the location had to suit us both, with separate wish list's we tried to narrow down areas which were suitable, it was obvious that we needed help.
We meet with Aaron Foss from Barfoot and Thompson Real Estate, this is who we were after, a professional person who knew the areas with great product knowledge.
One of the interesting aspects of Aaron's approach was the way he put together a workable plan based on what we were after, this gave us confidence that he was genuinely working with us for our best interest.
Quickly doors were opened and our search narrowed, this was were I feel that Aaron excelled for his recommendations and suggestions eliminated valuable time and effort to both parties concerned.
We would talk to Aaron regularly keeping us up to date with any new listings.
Then he sent through a listing that he thought would be very suitable and suggested a viewing.
He was absolutely bang on, after only an hour we both new this was the place, perfect, and we ticked off all of our requirements from the plan that Aaron was working from and went through the process of purchase.
Could not have been more impressed with Aaron's work ethics, friendly approach and what a great personality,
Would I contact and use Aaron again, of course this is not a question I would have to ask myself again.
Not only is Aaron's communication second to none, he understood us and our requirements completely. It took two months to find and buy our lovely cosy home, and during this time Aaron was in constant contact with ideal houses for consideration. It was clear to us that Aaron really knew the market, really knew the ins and outs of buying, and most importantly, really knew how to connect with us. Buying a home is such a personal task and Aaron navigated us though every step of the way.Kristian and Sarah Klette
Aaron' you are a true professional!
We want to thank-you so much for your advice & help in finding our very first home in the Auckland market! You made the process smooth & easy, your honesty and professionalism is something we really appreciate.
We would highly recommended you to anyone buying or selling! Thank-you
