Working in real estate gives me the privilege of being able to help people find that special place, a place to live with their family, a place to call home! I love meeting new people and hearing about their needs, goals and experiences. This is why I enjoy my job so much. The personal involvement and satisfaction makes me feel special.
Whether it’s the branches, IT, Marketing and Sponsorship or the Auction and Compliance departments, Barfoot & Thompson offers great in-depth support for all those who work there. The company also has a world-class training department, which helps set the stage for success. Here at Barfoot & Thompson Papatoetoe, I know that my Branch Manager and Sales Manager are just a phone call away.
After completing a Bachelor degree in Computer Application and a National Diploma in System Information from MIT, I held various roles in the computer division of one of New Zealand’s largest retailers, Harvey Norman. Technician, Manager and then sales which I absolutely loved! I’m proud to say that in 2019, I was acknowledged as the most valuable person in my team also named as The Best Salesperson!
With this background, I learned very quickly that hard work and commitment leads to outstanding results. And, that service excellence helps build strong client relationships. More importantly to me, these connections are maintained through clear and consistent communication.
Since I landed in New Zealand, almost 16 years ago, I’ve lived in Papatoetoe. It is a diverse and vibrant community. Interestingly, in the 2018 Census, nearly 52% of residents were born overseas, a statistic that is reflected in the shops, restaurants and cafes!
Outside of work, I like to keep fit. Walks with my wife in the evening with our pet Spoodle ‘Haachi’ (meaning bundle of joy) and playing badminton, are good for that. I love to put my feet up and watch nature and wildlife related documentaries. One day, I’d like to visit Antarctica!
Professionally, I look forward to making things happen, whether it is achieving the best price or finding just the right property for my clients. I am fluent in English, Punjabi and Hindi.
