A good attitude, flexibility, and an ability to think outside the box, are essential in real estate…
...and they have served me well for 21 years and counting! I have been passionate about helping people to buy and sell property for more than two decades now. I have found that such experience is not something you can replicate. I have witnessed positive changes in the industry with regard to marketing, technology, and compliance. I have seen what works and what doesn’t and can combine new and old tools to provide a cohesive, professional and streamlined service for my clients.
Creative, effective marketing is paramount to any campaign. I can market your property through a number of media channels to showcase its best features to many prospective buyers. This starts with highlighting unique features and creating innovative ways to present them.
At its core, working in real estate is working with people: finding homes and investments for a wide array of Kiwis. I have walked alongside clients from all walks and stages of life, and I understand that buying or selling a home is a big, often scary prospect. My experience has shown that openness and transparency goes a long way in forming positive relationships and achieving the best results in any real estate transaction.
I know how to sell properties. Get in touch via email, Facebook, or by phone if you would like to talk about your next real estate move!
"We were fortunate enough to have Angie Gray as our salesperson when we decided to move on from our home. Always contactable and transparent, Angie's advice, judgement and hard work, presented our property brilliantly in order to make us the best deal. We found her to be honest and straightforward and the process was so swift and well-handled that we very quickly managed to secure a sale of our property for a great price. Angie's local knowledge and client/customer relationship is superb and it makes her the successful salesperson she is. We are very glad and extremely grateful to have had her representing us, and we highly recommend her as an salesperson."Steve & Rosie - Te Atatu Peninsula
“Our family had a deceased estate property to sell which proved to be more complicated than a straight home sale. With all the legalities and third parties involved, Angie managed to navigate us through it all with her patience, calmness and ease every step of the way. Angie was very passionate about selling our house and definitely went the extra mile to help with the overall presentation. I found her very approachable and personable even through the Covid Lockdown, which didn’t seem to hinder a very excellent end result. I’d use Angie again and recommend anyone else thinking of using her as their salesperson.”Sharon - Te Atatu Peninsula
We had a fantastic experience with Angie, selling our property on Te Atatu Peninsula recently. Initially we were to sell by negotiation but she convinced us to sell by Auction when we had a number of interested parties in our house. We thank her very much for convincing us to sell via this method.
Through the open homes she was very professional and if any issue arose she was on top of it straight away, helping the vendors and the potential buyer getting very quick results.
We would definitely recommend Angie of Barfoot & Thompson if you need an amazing real estate salesperson.Mansoor & Susan Samandari
This was my first experience of presenting a house to the market. We were so fortunate to have Angie as our real estate salesperson. She was the perfect choice. Angie understands her market and keeps up-to-date with research and she put together a very professional marketing proposal. Angie made suggestions on how best to present the home. She answered all our queries about the marketing plan and guided us with our decision making. During the open homes, Angie gave us regular updates. She took the limitations created by the Covid-19 pandemic in her stride, remaining positive throughout the whole process. I couldn’t recommend Angie more highly.Lisa Thorley - Waimauku, 24 September 2020
Finding a real estate salesperon to help sell our mother’s property was a daunting prospect. Angie took all those concerns away. She was easy to deal with, knowledgeable and professional. Angie understood this was a big decision for us and treated us and the process with empathy and respect. There was no pretence, just a genuine desire to achieve the best outcome for us.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Angie or in using her again when I next look to sell.Andrea Bartley
Angela listed and marketed our Kingsland property over a three week auction campaign. We "interviewed" a few potential salespeople but it was Angela who stood out from the others with her sheer energy and genuine passion for the job. During the entire process Angela kept us up to speed with excellent communication and possessed what we believe to be a rare quality in this game.....honesty! This, coupled with her professional approach and ability to persevere to get the best result for us really made the whole transaction an enjoyable experience. Now she just needs to find us a new home by Christmas!Shayne & Sheree Porter - Kingsland
Having had a number of "so called" local real estate experts advise us on a price expectation, it was indeed a pleasant surprise to have Angela provide us with a customer who was willing not only to buy at over $100,000 more than the most recent nearby property, but also $60,000 more than the suggested maximum from other salespeople.
While our selling price set a very welcome record for the area, we were also impressed by Angela's initiative, perseverance and single-mindedness in finding the customer and then completing the contract in rapid time.Bil & Billy Hawley - Mount Eden
I want to take the opportunity to write and express my gratitude for the support you provided us during our attempt to purchase a residence in Auckland. You will remember that we identified a property we were particularly keen to purchase but you insisted that we researched the quality of the building by having and independent report done. Though this was at a cost. The report clearly spelled out to us the significant faults within the home. I want to acknowledge to you that your insistence on us having this report done, saved us tens of thousands of dollars.
You are in an industry where there are a variety of levels of credibility and I have to say that your personal credibility is at the highest level. Though you lost a sale as a consequence of this report, you have gained a potential client who would, if at all possible in the future use your services to provide us with the assistance we need for the sale and purchase of property.
Sheryl and I want to thank you very much for your support, and we would have absolutely no hesitation at all in utilizing or recommending your services to potential clients.Brendan & Sheryl Duffy
It is with pleasure that we recommend Angela Gray of Barfoot & Thompson Real Estate.
Angela assisted us in purchasing our first family home. After six months of searching for a home in a challenging Auckland market, visiting open homes every weekend and many hours scouring the pages of the property press, we were very relieved to have Angela take over the search process for us. Within 48 hours Angela had presented us with a list of properties to view and arranged suitable viewing times. All of the properties fell within the criteria we had outlined in our initial conversation and one of the properties matched our requirements perfectly.
Angela managed our purchase from the search for the property through to the auction day and within a week we had secured a property. As this was the purchase of our first family home we were grateful to Angela for her support and advice throughout the selection and auction process.
Angela continued to maintain contact with us over the following few weeks until the settlement date to ensure that the purchase was completed smoothly.
We are happy to recommend Angela to potential purchasers and property vendors and look forward to using the services that she provides again in the future.Scott Paterson & Hayley Abbott
We have recently been associated with Angela over the sale of three homes. Our daughter's, our own and as executors of a deceased estate. As our own home had been in the family for 62 years, we were particularly impressed with the way she listened and was sensitive to our personal needs.
We were thoroughly satisfied with the professional way she conducted business, keeping us informed during the entire process. Her unique qualities include reliable and efficient communication, honesty and generosity with her time, all accompanied with much enthusiasm and a delightful sense of humour. An enormous thank you Angela!Ken & Shona Barker
Angela sold my property in Westmere after one week on the market. Another salesperson with Barfoot & Thompson had listed it, however Angela brought me the buyer on the first day.
We ended up waiting until after the weekend open homes until we accepted the offer. Angela then listed my Ponsonby property and that was sold in one day! I wanted to list at a price lower than Angela recommended however she was pretty insistent on asking for a slightly higher price, and I got it! If you are looking for an salesperson who is tuned into the local market and quick on her feet and does what she says she will do, then choose Angela!Richard - Kingsland
We had tried to sell privately for almost two months before listing our property as an auction with Angela. She got to work quickly. Within two weeks we had sold and started to pack our bags!Lana Hart and Andrew Hobman - Kingsland
Angela Gray recently sold our home at Fickling Avenue, Hillsborough. It was a whole new experience for us, having lived here for nearly 22 years. Angela was wonderful to deal with. At all times she conducted herself in a highly professional manner, yet at the same time she was very personable and friendly. The marketing and sale process turned out to be very quick, only four days, and she handled the deal extremely well and with very little stress on our part. Angela was a pleasure to work with and a pleasure to have in our home.Tim & Sandra Livingstone- Hillsborough
Angela sold three properties for us last year - two rental flats in Mt Eden for a fixed price and later my parents' house in Paritai Drive at auction. We found her extremely honest, highly ethical, willing to work with us as a team to achieve the best price and more than capable of seeking advice when required. Angela also worked very well with our two tenants and my elderly parents.
Our own research showed her pricing and the final sale prices to be spot on.Heather Pattison - Property Investor
