What I love about real estate is the opportunity to meet people from all walks of life. The diversity of cultures and religions of Auckland in particular, makes every day interesting.
The Barfoot & Thompson team cover all of Auckland and Northland, and with their record of selling more than one out of three properties in the region, it’s easy to see that buyers have more choice.
I completed a Diploma in Legal Studies from The University of the Pacific, Suva, Fiji and initially worked for the Fiji National Provident Fund. I then completed a real estate course and opened my own company Hardys Homesell, which is still operating today, run by close family members. Overall, my experience in the industry spans 15 years both locally and internationally. I received numerous awards working for two other Auckland real estate companies, prior to Barfoot & Thompson.
Coming from Fiji myself, I enjoy the multi-ethnic community of Papatoetoe – people are friendly and approachable and always have time to listen. I mix especially well with the Indian community, many of whom know me through my real estate business in Fiji. For some, I sold their properties in Fiji, and now I’m finding them real estate in Auckland.
Outside of work I love watching rugby, cricket and soccer and attend major tournaments when I can. I love gardening at home and I always have time to spend with my family. The Indian Charitable Trust is an organisation I support – I like that they help people in need from all walks of life.
My work history has given me strong negotiating skills and good problem-solving abilities and I have a good understanding of the business markets. I speak Hindi as well as English and I’d love to help you with your next move in real estate. Call me or email me at the Barfoot & Thompson Papatoetoe branch and we’ll take it from there.
Ashwant did a fantastic job selling our property. We always felt like he was working hard for us and achieved a fantastic sell price. Without Ashwant and Barfoot & Thompson our sale may not have been possible.Aaron
