I have a lot of passion for this dynamic and ever-evolving industry. I love homes and I love interacting with people so real estate is the perfect combination of the two. I am also goal-oriented and I know that for many people, home-ownership is a life-long pursuit. Being able to assist someone on their path to achieving this goal is something I find personally fulfilling. I am genuinely happy when I match people with their perfect property.
Prior to real estate I worked as an analyst in the media, in education and in the information management industries. These experiences together with my psychology background, (I have an Honours degree in Psychology from AUT), and customer service roles prepared me well for a career in real estate. I am able to easily interact and create trust with the many interesting clients I meet on a daily basis.
I specialise in Massey, Royal Heights and Westgate and their surrounding suburbs and I see it as the ‘cosmopolitan’ wing of Auckland city. We have a vibrant multi-cultural community with beautiful bush and beaches to the west and great access to Auckland’s city centre to the east. My family and I have lived in Massey for about 14 years now and we love all it has to offer. I am a supporter of Plunket having witnessed first-hand the amazing job they do supporting mums, bubs and families.
I believe that effective communication is critical in both personal and professional relationships. The value of transparency and keeping in touch goes beyond the ‘Sold sticker’.
In addition to English I speak Hindi and you’ll find me at Barfoot & Thompson Royal Heights. Give me a ring or drop into the office for a chat. We’ll talk through what you’re looking for. I look forward to meeting you.
I’d like to express my heartfelt thanks for the excellent service you provided us, to get us our very first house that we can call a HOME.
You were so organised from the beginning and made our house-hunting experience easy. We found you with full of positive energy and good vibes and always thinking about your clients and giving them the utmost priority. You attentively listened and understood our requirements at our first meeting. Accordingly, you provided us with the listings that met our expectations. You always provided answers to all our questions and the information we required, which helped us immensely to make our decision.
When it was time to put an offer, you explained the process and went over the contract step-by-step. From the time we put in an offer, you communicated well between all the parties that were involved.
Your dealings were honest and ethical. The whole professionalism of your service was pleasant, and we would be more than happy to use your services in the future. Also, we will not hesitate to recommend you and your service to our family and friends.
Once again thank you for a job well done.Ritu Lal
I cannot speak highly enough of the quality of service we received from Ashna; she is a pleasure to deal with. We found her to be very bubbly, enthusiastic and willing to go that extra mile. We will certainly recommend her to all our friends and family.Justine & Rob
