Warm and approachable, born and bred in Te Atatu and a straight-shooter, I can offer you a unique real estate experience. One that I hope you appreciate for my transparency, kindness and flexibility. I don’t believe in sugar coating, I talk the truth and promise that in all my real estate dealings.
My love for property shows and it’s such an honour and delight to showcase people’s homes. 23 years and counting in real estate, I have witnessed positive changes in the industry with regard to marketing, technology and compliance. Creative, effective marketing is paramount to any campaign and I can show you how to attract more buyers through your door.
I’m not about push, I’m about discussing the options I know will work. You and your family then make the best decision for you, this is a collaborative relationship. 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. It’s what I do with confidence and if need be, I can hold your hand along the way. I especially like working with everyday locals who want everything to just run smoothly, with little fuss and of course, a very pleasing result.
Outside of real estate, I love to get out on the water to fish with my partner and son. We are members of the Te Atatu Boating Club. I also volunteer at our local Hospice shop each week. I am a firm believer that we must give of ourselves and appreciate every moment we have.
If you’re looking to sell, please call me in and show me around. I will have your goals in mind at all times and provide a service with true integrity
It was a pleasure to work with Angie; her ethical work, transparency and honesty are great; she always wanted what is best for me rather than just trying to push a sale! She also provided lots of help and support during the time I was looking for a place! I finally bought a place Angie told me about! I will strongly recommend contacting her!Matias - Swanson
Angie is a friendly, professional and hardworking salesperson.
I found Angie's friendly and professional manner made her great to deal with. She was very easy to chat with and always available to listen to my concerns and give much needed advice.
A great problem solver, she was constantly thinking ahead about any potential issues that might need attention. If she couldn't solve it herself she knew exactly who to call. Delighted to have chosen her as my salesperson and my house sold at auction with a great result.
Thanks Angie!!Mary - Glendene
Angie recently listed and sold my property.
I always felt that Angie was very focused on marketing and selling my property and that I had her full attention. I found her to be a very good communicator, she was quick to respond by text, phone or email, and always available. She was efficient, delivering what she promised on time.
I was very happy with the marketing of my property. The photos presented my house very well, the signage and leaflets were also very professional.
I had eight registered bidders at my auction, and my property sold after 19 days on the market.
Selling a house can be extremely stressful, however with Angie at the helm I found the process went very smoothly, with everything arranged very professionally - resulting in minimal stress and great results.Lisa - Te Atatu Peninsula
Te Atatu Peninsula’s best kept secret!
I cannot more highly recommend Angie to anyone selling their property on Te Atatu Peninsula. Her local knowledge and experience is second-to-none. She so incredibly exceeded my expectations of what I expected from a salesperson. I was selling during Covid Lockdown, my property was tenanted, I lived out of Auckland and was unable to get into Auckland or my property to do any of the things I needed to do to get the property ready for sale. Angie just did it all and took care of every problem that surfaced with calm efficiency. She arranged contractors to fix blown bulbs, broken switches and garage door openers. She also organised the staging of the property at her expense. But to me the ultimate measure of Angie’s attitude was the way she dealt with my sub-par-garden presentation. It wasn’t looking so good after tenancy and time was very limited. She fixed it by doing it herself. She and her son and lovely aunt spent several hours in my garden over the weekend tidying it up for me! I had challenges with issues to do with the Body Corp and boundary. Angie was on top of them all the way, giving advice, practical action and support all the way. I never doubted Angie wasn’t working on my behalf to the absolute best of her ability, and I cannot give her a higher recommendation. She made my property sale, which should have been so difficult, just so easy! I got an incredible price by auction and I cannot thank Angie enough for all the work she did for me in assuring I got the best price. Thank you so much Angie, I can’t thank you nearly enough!
My elderly mother was selling her family home in Te Atatu North and we wanted to deal with a salesperson who would look out for her best interests and be patient in dealing with her during the selling process . We found Angie to be very knowledgeable and helpful during the whole process. When some challenges arose in dealing with Covid restrictions and the purchaser's requests, she was able to navigate these professionally and had good negotiating skills. We would have no hesitation in recommending Angie to any wishing to use Barfoot & Thompson in the West Auckland area.Ian - Te Atatu Peninsula
Angie, thank you so very much for all your hard work to bring my sale to this point! It is utterly amazing that we have secured such a sale and we as a family feel it is all God ordained and the right elderly couple will be happy in my lovely home. May many blessings come your way!Mary - Te Atatu Peninsula
Angie was well aware of the emotion involved in my listing a home I have lived in and loved for 23 years. Despite several non-compliance issues relating to the house and knowing how difficult this was for me, her understanding of the market made this transaction as easy as it was possible to be. For that I am extremely grateful and would thoroughly recommend her for the professionalism and empathy she showed during this time. Thank you Angie for a painless - and speedy - journey.Josie - Henderson Valley
I have been delighted how Angie Gray has managed the sale of my property. From the start Angie listened and understood my requirements then facilitated a sale in the shortest time. She introduced an excellent buyer which resulted in a sale exceeding my expectations. Angie made everything simple and stress-free. I wholeheartedly recommend Angie Gray as a caring, professional who acts with the highest integrity at all times. Thank you Angie.Gail - Te Atatu Peninsula
Well Angie, we have nothing but great things to say about you. 15 years ago, you listened to what we were looking for. We purchased through you what was supposed to be our five year home and 15 years later, here we are.
It was with honour to have you sell it for us. We valued your honesty and open communication. You were so kind and thoughtful through this stressful time and appreciated everything you did. We highly recommend you to sell or help anyone buy their home. You listen, show empathy and make it happen. Best result, thank-you!Conway & Karen - One Tree Hill
"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
