A passion for property inspired me to pursue a Bachelor of Property at the University of Auckland.
I chose to work for Barfoot & Thompson because they are at the forefront of technology-led solutions, demonstrated in their strong commitment to developing enhancing and investing in new cutting-edge tools for staff.
I was born and raised here in Auckland although my background and heritage is Persian. During my studies I accrued excellent customer service skills through working in a variety of different fields. I’m aware of how essential great customer service is in this industry and I strive to provide the best service that I can.
I am extremely driven and hugely motivated to succeed and will do my best to ensure that an optimal result is achieved for my landlords and tenants.
If you need advice on industry best practice and want to know more about what we can do for our clients, give me a call.
The process is very smooth with great conversations with my manager, Arash. He always gives good alternatives to any issues and is helpful and timely. I would highly recommend using Barfoot & Thompson as Property Managers. The experience has been smooth, any issues with the property have been dealt with in a timely manner with me receiving emails with suggestions and alternatives if needed. I have not felt any pressure to do anything I didn't want to do and I like the communication style of my Property Manager.Anne-Marie
Arash did a fantastic job at guiding us through the application process - he was quick and efficient with his communication and was very easy to deal with. We are grateful to have been able to go through this journey with Arash and would highly recommend him if you are seeking a Property Manager in the future.Georgia
"Ash was so much better than the previous property manager I used to have, actually answering emails/calls. Process was so much easier. It will hopefully not be the last investment property I own. I definitely want to get back into the game at some point, and know who I will call in the future."Stefan
“We selected another property management company based on their track record locally and also because they had a very practical and well thought out approach to managing our property. From the time he took responsibility for the rental, Arash has been great. Communications have been both frequent and effective and he is quick to respond to any maintenance requirements, organising quotes, engaging service providers and ensuring the jobs are completed to the required standard. This is the rental experience I was hoping we would have and I am sure our tenants also feel like they have a reliable person they can turn to if they need anything.”Maarten
"We have recently moved into our new rental home. The house initially needed some repairs and adjustments. We found communication with Ash really quick and always super helpful. He organised everything smoothly. He's respectful and understanding to both us and the landlord. I can see he is dedicated to always helping to resolve anything that comes up with the property."-Aleksandra
"Arash (Ash) took over the management of our property in January 2020. From the first day we noticed a significant improvement in the service level that we received. Ash has been very proactive in terms of the property management and timely in answering our questions. As landlords based overseas, it is important that we have confidence in our Property Manager especially when it comes to maintenance work including cost management. Ash has worked with us to ensure we are getting the best market rates for any repairs needed. I would definitely recommend Ash for any landlords looking for a proactive and professional property manager."Rachel & Toni
"We have had such a positive experience with Ash as our property manager. He has been flexible, understanding and communicative whether it was his working hours or not.
Ash helped us from one property to the next and went above-and-beyond to make sure we secured a property quickly so as not to disturb our young son and our day-to-day life.
We are very grateful to have been able to deal with such a pleasant person who we always felt was on our team. He’s most certainly an asset to Barfoot & Thompson and their property management team."Jessica
"As a first time landlord, I was nervous about having ‘strangers’ living in my house and not really knowing what to expect. But Ash made sure the lines of communication between the two of us were always open and very clear.
I felt as though transparency was key to making myself feel more comfortable in an unfamiliar situation and Ash is very good at that. I can’t say a bad word about anyone including the tenants. Ash couldn’t have found a better couple to have as my first tenants.
Very much appreciated, Ash. Thank you very much."Aleks
