Before joining the team at Barfoot & Thompson Ponsonby, I enjoyed a long and successful career in the creative advertising and marketing industry. In this role, I gained insight, expertise, and the art of building customer relationships. I have the know-how and savvy to create a marketing campaign that will make your home stand out from the rest. This combined with my natural flair for communicating with an audience, made my transition to the property industry a seamless one.
I am someone who puts the ‘real’ into real estate. I like to work closely and transparently with clients and make them feel comfortable about the big decisions they are about to make. My strong work ethic plus a determined focus to find you real buyers and achieve real results, make me a great choice when looking for someone to sell your home.
Being a family man and having lived in Ponsonby for the past 15 years, I know all the best places to hang out, socialise and relax. And if you’re wanting to go for a stroll around the neighbourhood I can recommend some picturesque routes to take, as well as some great places to eat.
Our house buying budget wasn’t big, but Adey‘s help and expertise certainly was. He went above and beyond on so many occasions - getting back to us promptly with answers to all our questions and showing us a wide range of properties with honesty and integrity. Thank you Adey, you helped us find a great place and as we were very cautious buyers, you were reassuring and helpful every step of the way.Claire & Jeff - Property Buyers
Adey brought a refreshing level of energy and enthusiasm to our real estate experience. We needed someone to take the hassle out of selling, to make things as smooth as possible and Adey really delivered.
Adey was highly personable and diligent at keeping us informed and in the loop, and in a matter of days he had an offer we were happy with. A great result with a great salesperson.Jocelyn & Ryan - Happy Vendors
Adey has been a pleasure to deal with and very attentive. It's refreshing to work with a real estate salesperson who goes above and beyond for the vendors as well as the buyer.
Adey, you have put a deal together nicely with an outcome I feel we were all happy with. Thank you once again, you have made this easy and stress free.Katya - New Home Buyer
Throughout the entire process of searching for our dream first home, Adey was always right there to lean on. His aptitude to listen and accommodate our needs far surmounts anything we could have ever hoped for. Adey is diligent, hardworking, an excellent communicator, and an all-round great person.
As first home buyers, we were completely new to the home buying process and quickly learned that there was a lot more stress to the process than we thought. Adey's reassurance, incredible communication and organisation, coupled with his faultless follow-through on his word, made the process surprisingly pleasant and took much of the stress off of us.
We will always fondly remember Adey and would totally recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell!Cara & Logan - First Home buyers
I would like to recommend Adey Richards as a great real estate salesperson to work with. I myself have done a lot of work involving property and knowing what is required and where the responsibilities lie, I believe that Adey succeeds in doing an excellent job. He has excellent written and verbal communication skills, is extremely organized, and follows through to ensure that the job gets done properly.
During the time I have known Adey, he has always been a very caring, reliable and trustworthy person. He also has a wonderful charismatic personality which lights up any room. He is always willing to offer his assistance and has an excellent rapport with any person or professional organization that he comes in contact with.
I can proudly say I would recommend him for any sale or purchase agreement.Erin Simpson -TV personality & Founder/Director of The Showcase Company
