About Ashley Tait

#7 Individual Salesperson, Central Auckland Region, to end March 2020

Over my 30 years in real estate, I have built a large network of contacts that my clients can leverage during their purchase or sale. I have a wealth of knowledge of the Ponsonby, Herne Bay and the city fringe suburbs of Auckland and am a great source on all things that make these areas special.

Being an organised and results-driven salesperson has proven to be a very effective strategy for my career. My goal is to always secure a positive result for clients whether buying or selling property, while delivering great service every step of the way. I’ve found that my approachable and friendly manner enables me to adapt a range of needs to fit your requirements. I am especially skilled at presenting your property to the market.

I am a great listener, an excellent negotiator, and together with my support network at the Ponsonby office, will get you the results you want. Call me today to learn about these desirable parts of Auckland.

What my clients say

"Ashley Tait has handled the sale of our property in St Mary's Bay in an extremely professional manner. He has an organised and pragmatic approach to the sales and marketing. He has access to various tradespeople to help present the property in the best way possible. Ashley is very helpful, open and easy to communicate with, he also over-.delivers on his promises. He has an excellent work ethic and puts an exceptional amount of effort into the work he does. We will definitely be using Ashley in any future property sales or purchases that we do in the area. Both Steve and I would not hesitate to recommend him to either sell your home or find you a new home or investment."

Clare & Steve, St Marys Bay

When it came time to sell our home, we knew Ashley Tait was the right man for the job. We had met Ashley previously and were immediately impressed with his professionalism, personal approach, knowledge, excellent understanding of what is important to a vendor and critically, his honesty and integrity. From the outset, the marketing plan and campaign through to when the hammer dropped in the auction room, we could not have asked for more. We have no hesitation in recommending Ashley Tait to sell your home.

Amanda, St Marys Bay

Ashley and Matt sold my property in Point Chevalier in March 2020 . Ashley has always kept in contact with no pressure to sell. With his advice, I sold in a great market, maximising my selling price. I found Ashley and Matt very professional and easy to work with, with a great outcome. I would definitely use them again if I sold another property.

Christine, Point Chevalier

Ashley has now sold two houses for our family over the past five years and we can’t speak highly enough of him. He is reliable, communicative and always delivers on what he promises. We’ve always found him hardworking and has consistently got a good outcome for us in our property sales. We wouldn’t hesitate to use him again for any house sale or purchase in the future and would highly recommend him to anyone.

Nick & Shannon, Westmere

My husband and I felt very fortunate to have the services of Ashley Tait in Franklin Rd. Ashley's courteous professionalism and consistently high standard of service helped to make the process much smoother and less stressful than it might otherwise have been. Our house, an old not particularly well-maintained Ponsonby villa in a prime location, was skilfully and effectively marketed, using print and social media. The open-homes ran like clock-work. At every stage of the sale process, Ashley provided great feed-back on what was happening when and what we might expect. During the tender process too, he kept the channels of communication open so that we were able to make informed decisions. Completely belying often negative stereotypes about estate salespeople, Ashley was not only utterly professional and efficient, he was invariably helpful, courteous and friendly.

D & J Morrow

I met Ashley at an open home and as a result had my own home unconditionally sold within two weeks. He was professional, approachable and got the results I wanted. I would highly recommend Ashley and Barfoot & Thompson for the wide network, knowledge of the area and Ashley's in-depth experience of the real estate industry. He was a pleasure to deal with.

Judy W, Ponsonby

Ashley from Barfoot & Thompson demonstrated excellent communications throughout the whole process of selling our home. He was extremely professional and always friendly. I would highly recommend Ashley from Barfoot & Thompson to friends and anyone living in the central city area selling a home.

Julia Long, Westmere

Ashley Tait of Barfoot & Thompson in Ponsonby was very sound when we purchased a property on northern slopes of Herne Bay. His facts were well researched and the feedback during the buy/sell process was accurate and handled in a very professional manner. He knew the area well and his negotiation skills reflected his understanding of our needs. We recommend Ashley whenever you're a buyer or seller.

Michael Rosser

'From my initial meeting with Ashley, he was always honest, efficient, professional and courteous. As a buyer I found him very supportive and his pragmatism and industry knowledge helped us find our much-searched-for home! He was a pleasure to deal with.

Alexia Woodroffe & AJ, Herne Bay

We met Ashley at an open home he was conducting while we were searching for a specific kind of property to buy in Herne Bay. He listened to us, was honest, and direct and introduced us to a purchase that we now own and are more than pleased with. He was incredibly efficient and pleasant to deal with during the entire buying process. We look forward to further association with Ashley.

Geoff, Herne Bay

Thank you Ashley, for the professional way in which you handled the marketing and sale of our home in Ponsonby. Your pleasant "hands on" approach, willingness to help, market research, honesty and open communication produced an effective campaign, achieving a premium price at auction. The complementary full page feature property in the Sunday Herald was indeed a bonus and we acknowledge the effort that went into making this happen. You delivered on your pitch to achieve the desired outcome.

Tania McRae, Ponsonby

We recently sold our house in Herne Bay. We were very impressed by his team approach, nothing got missed and nothing was a problem. Throughout, he maintained a professional, hardworking and friendly attitude. We would highly recommend Ashley to anyone considering selling their house.

Helen Geddes & Geoff Arden, Herne Bay

Ashley helped us buy the house we wanted by securing a timely sale on our home. He managed a superb marketing plan, identified buyers and gave honest and a spot-on appraisal of what our house was worth in the current market. His long experience in real estate, kind patience and availability to organise viewings at a moments notice, made it a good experience as both buyer and seller.

Shelley Trueman & Tony Nagel, Grey Lynn

We strongly endorse the performance and reliability of salesperson Ashley Tait. Ashley listened, digested and strategised how to best obtain the optimum price from the current market, resulting in a successful sale and two very happy vendors.

Shannon & Jacqui Joe

We recently listed and sold our home on Richmond Road with Ashley Tait from Barfoot & Thompson's Ponsonby branch. Ashley was a pleasure to deal with and extremely professional and proficient. The whole process of marketing and selling was handled very efficiently and we were very happy with the price achieved.

We would highly recommend and Ashley to anyone considering selling in the area.

Ian Goodwin & Sally Roberts, Grey Lynn

We had recently purchased a new home when a sudden and serious illness affected our family. Without hesitation, Ashley stepped up to the plate and was able to assist us in on-selling our property promptly and professionally. He conducted the sale most efficiently and was responsive to our needs. His practicality ensured the stress was taken off our shoulders so we could then focus on the personal matter at hand. Thanks Ashley for all your assistance.

Kim Snow, Herne Bay

Thank you Ashley. Robert and I will certainly recommend you and have already done so. We appreciated and benefited from your long experience as a successful real estate salesperson. It was a great pleasure to deal with you - we always felt our interests were a priority which was really important to us.

Robert & Susan Hall, Grey Lynn

Ashley was one of the few salespeople who was proactive when it came to finding our family a house to buy. Ashley utilised his database and contacts and was able to show us through a number of houses prior to the official open homes which was great. Ashley was determined to find our family a house which met our brief. We now have a new house which we are delighted with thanks to Ashley. I have no hesitation in recommending Ashley as a residential salesperson.

Denise Walker, Herne Bay

We have worked with Ashley for over six months or more now, both in the process of selling our house and in the search for a new one. Ashley has been understanding of our needs, patient, constructive in his suggestions, persistent in his efforts for us, and realistic about what are looking for. He has a gentle approach which we have particularly appreciated. We have come to value his expertise enormously. We have no hesitation recommending Ashley to anyone looking to buy or sell property in the Ponsonby/Herne Bay area.

Royden Hindle & Jane Bawden, Herne Bay

I found Ashley to be extremely courteous, patient and helpful at all times. The one thing in particular that stood out for me was his complete lack of "pushiness" in want of a better word. I felt Ashley handled his role superbly and professionally by presenting me with open and honest facts and potential purchasers.

Amanda Findlay, Freemans Bay

Ashley did a fantastic job selling an investment flat we had in Remuera. He did an outstanding job and exceeded our expectations both in terms of the outcome and with the process. Ashley was consistent, always doing what he said he would, and we felt fully informed.

Michael & Kathy Moynahan, Epsom

"Ashley has now sold two houses for our family over the past five years and we can’t speak highly enough of him. He is reliable, communicative and always delivers on what he promises. We’ve always found him hardworking and has consistently got a good outcome for us in our property sales.

Geoff, Herne Bay

It is an absolute pleasure to write a testimonial for Ashley - we cannot thank him enough for taking on our search. We had genuinely considered giving up on ever finding a suitable property in the Herne Bay area. Finding Ashley was almost as valuable as finding the house. He was a consummate professional throughout the buying process. He wasn't afraid to introduce new ideas to our thinking, which he did with both charm and integrity. His knowledge of the area and recent sale values went above and beyond that of his own office. He openly searched with other agents for a house meeting our criteria and the property we finally settled on, was the result of one of those enquiries. Our purchase went through in two weeks and we couldn't be happier.

Sheree & James Fleming, Herne Bay

"I would like to recommend Ashley Tait who represents Barfoot and Thompson Ponsonby office.
Ashley marketed and sold my house in June 2016. He was very professional in his approach in dealing with me and prospective buyers. The process was seamless and met my expectations. The marketing campaign was thorough and there were over 100 groups through the property in a three week campaign. Communication was the key to the sale with me and prospective buyers and Ashley was second to none in this area. The contacts outside of the groups who came through were the reason he achieved a very successful sale and price on the day of auction. This is a stressful time for any seller but Ashley made the experience easy and his communication again was stellar.
I would not hesitate to call Ashley again if the situation arose I am a very satisfied client. His experience in the area definitely paid dividends."
