Andre recently sold our house and we were impressed by his professionalism and friendly manner. We had two Pre-auction offers and the resulting outcome at the on-site auction exceeded everyone's expectations. Thank you.
RegardsJenny & Jim, Glenfield
Andre has been great to deal with especially through a very stressful house buying process. He is always quick to respond to enquiries and questions.Emma, Birkdale
We're thrilled with the professionalism of Andre Volkov and his Barfoot & Thompson team. The quality of photography, marketing and service attracted great interest in our home and a fantastic price was achieved at the auction!Lynda & Barry, Glenfield
We recently sold our house with Andre Volkov. We had a tight timeframe, so Andre organised a two week auction campaign with a shorter settlement. Everything was well organised and ready to go for the day and worked out just as we wanted, with a sale price exceeding our expectations!Dan & Susan, Glenfield
We really enjoyed working with Andre and the team. The process of selling our house could not have gone more smoothly and we were impressed with the constant communication and result on auction day, considering part of this was done during Level 3 Lockdown. Thanks again Andre.Kim & Malcolm, Glenfield
Andre and his team did a fantastic job marketing our property. We were kept informed every step of the way, and all our queries were answered promptly and fully. We were impressed with Andre's professionalism which, combined with his positivity and enthusiasm, make a winning combination! Thanks, Andre for all your hard work - really appreciated by us both.Teresa & Dave, Birkdale
"Andre's professional yet courteous approach is omnipresent. We appreciate the suggestions provided; the promptness in communications cannot be missed. Overall, services provided by Andre and team are incredible!"Grenda & Sheldon, Glenfield
I recently sold my house with Andre Volkov. Nothing was too much trouble, Andre was full of great ideas and advice. We ended up bringing the auction forward and I was blown away with the price achieved!Dorothy, Glenfield
Selling for the first time in 34 years and for the very first time at auction, had the potential to be overwhelming. Luckily we took a friend's advice and contacted Andre, whose support and expertise from the very beginning was wonderful.
We wisely accepted his recommendations for staging the house and the marketing choices. Andre talked us through the auction process, recommended the reserve and was beside us on auction day. Communication from Andre, his team and the office was constant and up-to-date.
Our thanks to all the Barfoot & Thompson team and Andre in particular.Denise & Paul, Glenfield
Andre was full of great advice and help in selling our family property. He was always professional and we achieved a fantastic price at the auction blowing away all our expectations! We would not hesitate to work with Andre again.Stuart, Glenfield
Andre, thanks so much for helping us to sell our mother’s house. I appreciate the effort you have put into it and the consistent up-to-date reports around people that may be interested.Moira, Hillcrest
Andre is head and shoulders above all other salespeople. He is professional, friendly and has great attention to detail. Our sale was fast, efficient and he got an amazing price. Highly recommended.Darren, Birkdale
Thank you for a great sale!! It’s been a learning curve and really wasn’t as hard as I thought it would be, as you provided all the information I needed to know before it got to that stage.Marie, Glenfield
"Andre Volkov has been incredible as our salesperson in the sale of our house. He came to visit us after hours to give us an overview of costs, advertising options and the overall process of selling with Barfoot & Thompson. Not once did he oversell himself or make us feel pressured. He was friendly, relaxed and professional. His communication throughout this process has been impeccable, clear and understanding.
We sold at auction earlier than we thought we would and for a lot more money than we thought we would sell for so we could not be more pleased with the outcome. It is all thanks to Andre! Best salesperson by far, thank you!"Jen, Birkdale
Many thanks for helping us to buy our first home Andre. We are very excited and happy. This wouldn't have been possible without your help and not to mention your patience and professionalism. Will highly recommend you to friends and colleagues. Good luck.Vanessa, Totara Vale
Andre recently sold our house and we were delighted with the result! After less than a week on the market, we had a fantastic pre-auction offer and the brought-forward auction managed to get us an even better price! Couldn’t have asked for a better result. Thanks Andre Volkov and the network of Barfoot & Thompson salespeople.Carolyn & Shane, Glenfield
We recently sold our first home, all while being overseas and during the COVID 19 pandemic and Lockdowns in two countries. It was a stressful time in the world, but Andre and the Barfoot & Thompson team kept us informed of the situation as it developed. He was always available and always polite, honest and friendly. We recommend Andre and the Barfoot & Thompson team and we look forward to working with him again in the future.Reem & James, Totaravale
We recently sold our home after living there for 45 years. We were so impressed with André and his team. He was always available and always polite, honest and friendly. When we had a problem, he gave us very good advice and if he wasn’t a hundred per cent certain about the answer brought in expert advice. We had very large crowds at the open homes right throughout the process, lots of salespeople bringing buyers through during the week and a pre-auction offer. André sold the house for a sum way beyond our expectations.
We would definitely recommend André as your salesperson. He is a voice of calm in one of the most stressful experiences of our lives.Maureen & Michael, Glenfield
Glen and I had it easy, no stress at our end! We couldn’t have put the job of selling the house in better hands. You are a master at your craft, thank you.Glen & Sonia, Glenfield
Thank you so much for your advice and hard work, Andre, you are a great real estate agent! We really appreciated the constant communication, especially the feedback from potential buyers after each open home. We also appreciated that you gave us a general picture of the housing market which helped us better understand the market and achieve a great outcome.Graham & Song, Totara Vale
Hi Andre. Thanks for all your help with the sale. It's a big step for us and you've been a great support and we appreciate the honest advice and feedback you gave throughout the process. Best.Cyrille & Tania, Glenfield
Recently I tried to sell my investment property privately and had been in negotiations for quite a few months. After that sale fell through, I realised that selling privately was going to take more time than I was able to dedicate and decided to employ André Volkov and team. I was completely blown away to receive a fantastic pre-auction unconditional offer after only one day on the market. If you are looking to sell a property then I cannot recommend André Volkov and team highly enough. Their enthusiasm, process, the Barfoot & Thompson network of agents and results are worth every dollar. I am over the moon with the outcome.Sue, Browns Bay
Wow Andre! just wow! Thank you for the video, it exceeded our expectations. Absolutely no changes required! We especially love the opening shot with the plants. Please pass on our thanks to the videographer.Paul & Alice, Totara Vale
As I live overseas now, I was looking for an agent to be referred to for the sale of my rental property and I'm so glad that André was the one as he proved to be very hardworking and trustworthy. As well as the actual sale, he was very helpful in organising touch up painting, some minor repairs and staging of the property to show it off to its best potential. We ended up with a great sale result thanks to André and team.John, Glenfield
We have known Andre for a long time. He has earned our trust as a highly motivated professional since his last job related to online advertising. We contacted André numerous times over the years to get his advice on the market conditions and maximising the sale price for both our place and our investment property. We were always impressed with his knowledge and his ideas. When it came to selling our investment property outside of Andrés area he has found us a local agent specialising in the neighbourhood and we are very happy with the service and the achieved sale price. We would certainly recommend André and Barfoot & Thompson to anyone considering selling.Rodney & Lucille
I interviewed a number of agents when looking for the right person to help me with the sale of a family member's home. André stood out to me from the moment I spoke to him as someone who would work hard and focus on the job at hand to get a quick sale at a good price. I was not disappointed! I would definitely recommend him if you are looking for an experienced agent with good judgement, who will work hard to achieve a good result.Marnie, Birkdale
I was referred to Andre Volkov by my niece, who had just sold her house via a different Barfoot & Thompson agency. I found him to be very easy to communicate with - he was clear, direct and honest. He kept me informed at every stage of the process. With his colleague Harry, they achieved a great result for me very rapidly after the house was marketed. I would have no hesitation in referring this team to any of my friends who are thinking about selling. This Barfoot & Thompson team at Glenfield is excellent at what it does!!Carolyn, Birkdale
From the outset I thoroughly enjoyed working with Andre I provided him with a short timeframe to prepare to list the property and he completely took this in his stride. It is very clear that with André's very high level of integrity and honesty he quickly establishes a trusting relationship with those he deals with - which was what I wanted in having an experienced agent dealing with potential buyers. André kept me updated through the process, his communication, guidance and support was excellent, he was always available for me, could not have been any better. André remained engaged right through to settlement, to ensure a smooth settlement for both vendor and purchaser, which I really appreciated. André has a very professional attitude and focus, which was just what I was looking for in taking the property to market. I would not hesitate to engage André again.Rod, Glenfield
We interviewed several agents for the sale of our house and decided to go with Andre and his team because we felt we would get a better result. Unlike other agents, there were no false promises. He educated us from the beginning on market trends, open homes trends and how to best engage the best buyers that come in the first few weeks of open homes - everything turned out to be true and worked well for us! Communication with André was great. He was always available to answer our questions (we did ask him a lot), giving us good advice that proved to be the right thing to do as the future unfolded. We closed on time and are really happy with the sale result. We would definitely work with him again and will refer him to friends and family.Asif & Madeeha, Birkdale
When it came to selling our first house, I'm so glad we chose Andre and team to make the sale happen. Having already brought a new house we needed a quick sale at a great price and this is exactly what happened! Everything went according to plan and nothing was too much trouble for André. Thanks to the excellent marketing campaign André prepared and the efforts of the Barfoot & Thompson network, we had an offer within two days of the house being on the market and unconditional within two weeks. Our family is now excited to move on with the next phase in our lives. If you are needing any help - advice or guidance with real estate - look no further than André Volkov!Amy & Dan, Glenfield
I just want to say a great big thank you to Andre and team for marketing and selling my property. Being a plaster house with some moisture issues, it was always going to be a difficult sell however André was keen to accept the challenge. I was thrilled to receive an offer I was happy with after only one week on the market. Also impressive was André's communication and selling process. Excellent communication when required and I was happy to leave it to André and his team who just did everything and made difficult seem easy. Great speed in preparing professional marketing collateral - if anyone is thinking of selling their house I completely recommend André! Thanks André for the job done.David, Glenfield
After many years of enjoying our place as a very happy home, it was our time to sell and move on. Our grown-up children have moved on with family in new locations. Thanks André and your team for your guidance and support through the sale process and the achieved outcome. We trust that the family moving in will enjoy the character of the property and have many happy moments in their new home.Tom & Pat, Beach Haven
If you are thinking of selling your house we recommend you give André Volkov a call. His professional attitude and focus on the task at hand, together with his attention to detail, recently achieved a successful sale for us in a very short time. He communicated with us throughout and stuck to the plan, his mantra "keep calm and carry on" maintained a stress-free experience from whoa to go. Thank you André .Anne & Kevin, Glenfield
After deciding rather quickly to sell my rental property in Birkenhead, I approached André Volkov at Barfoot & Thompson. With four weeks to go before Christmas, he had my property listed, complete with photos and brochures. After four weekends of open homes, the sale was unconditional before Christmas. I found André to be very professional and knew his way round some difficult issues. He kept me well informed of progress from the open homes and listings. My property was tenanted throughout, and he treated my tenants with consideration and respect. They also spoke very highly of him with his attitude towards them. I would highly recommend André to anyone wishing to sell a property in the future.Joan - Birkenhead
Thanks so much André and team for helping us to sell our house in the newly difficult market. We are very happy with the price and thrilled that the timing worked out perfectly for us to move into our brand-new house being completed in Silverdale. Thanks again, André and we will be happy to recommend your services to anyone planning to sell their house in the future.Keith & Natallia, Glenfield
We listed our house for sale with André Volkov of Barfoot & Thompson Glenfield because we were aware that André had achieved the successful sale of neighbouring properties. André explained the sale alternatives fully and together we settled on an auction, marketing material and price range. André kept us fully aware of the level of interest in the property by texts, written reports and weekly meetings, following each open home weekend. He liaised effectively with Agents from other Barfoot's branches and we felt confident we were getting the full benefit of the Barfoot's network. Any issues that arose during the sale process were discussed with us and then dealt with quickly and appropriately. We were pleased with the outcome of the auction. André is a true professional and we are pleased to be able to recommend him to any potential property sellers.Rod and Kath, Glenfield
We bought our home from André, we had been to a few of his open homes before and they were always well organized, creating a warm welcoming atmosphere. Having arrived at the last minute, he made us feel welcomed and did not rush us through the property. We appreciated his honesty and found him knowledgeable about the current market. André is trust worthy and went above and beyond to provide us with the required information. We are very satisfied with the purchase process and will recommend his services without hesitation.
Richard & Intan, Glenfield
I write to express our sincere thanks for your efforts and work in selling our property. Not having sold or purchased for some 35 years, it was indeed a very daunting and stressful task, however, your extreme professionalism and kindness simply made all that stress disappear and we found the whole process amazing. The fact that you took a lot of time to research and explain every facet of the process and guide us through it with a gentle manner and regular follow-ups was very impressive.
We were taken by the fact that in our first meeting you were very keen to find out exactly what our expectations of you were and what we wanted of you. That is the first time anyone has asked us that and it showed you were genuinely interested in making sure you could help us and fulfil our expectations.
As the auction approached, we were on edge but your calm demeanour the night before and reassurances when we set the reserve allowed us to relax and actually enjoy the auction process.
We think your service and follow-up to be of the very highest order and worthy of great praise.
It has been an absolute pleasure to work with you and we are very happy to tell everyone we meet that Barfoot & Thompson and André Volkov, in particular should always be the first choice when selling or purchasing on the Shore.
With the kindest of regards,
Margaret & Godfrey Reid, Glenfield
André is professional and personable, two very important qualities for a top real estate agent. I enjoyed working with him and will definitely use his services again. Thank you so much André for making the process of selling my property easy and enjoyable.
Denise Ferguson, Glenfield
André has been quite simply magnificent. My property at Weldene Avenue, Glenfield sold at Auction effortlessly and easily because André just made it that way. He is the true professional; superb communication skills, his integrity, his genuine persona, his skill and expertise as a real estate agent and of course his awareness of what is happening in the Glenfield area. All of these things made selling with André a happy and stress free event. I could trust his judgment completely and so too will anyone who comes into contact with him.
Thank you so very much André.
Phillipa Kelly, Glenfield
We are glad that we chose André to sell our property. He is very sincere and trustworthy. André guided us professionally from the start and he knows the market very well. Working with André made the whole process very simple as he gave us very good advised. André kept us well informed after every open home and prepared progress report each time. The auction went very well and we were able to achieve what we wanted. Thank you André and the whole Barfoot & Thompson team, agents and auctioneers who rallied behind us.
Al & Editha Valladolid, Glenfield
Hi André Many Thanks for your guidance and help throughout the sale process.
Thank you for selling our house. We thought your service was very professional and were delighted with the speed, the efficiency and the sale result.
When my wife and I decided to move and sell our long-time family home in Glenfield we knew it was potentially a challenging and stressful experience. We did our research and Barfoot & Thompson stood out as did André. Right from the start, André listened and did not try to dazzle with a sales pitch resulting in potentially unmet expectations. Throughout the whole process, André was supportive and in every way the absolute professional. André works to very high personal standards including those on his sales team. The end result even in the current market was a sold sticker on our for sale sign within a month and a price we were happy with.
My wife and I would not hesitate to recommend André and his team to our family and friends.
I am so happy I chose Andre to market and sell my home. The "Andre and Harry" team is well known in the Glenfield area as honest, reliable and knowledgeable. Andre's communication and friendly manner I found to be second to none. Ever the professional, I would have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone considering selling their home. His motto should be "SATISFACTION GUARANTEED" All the best Andre and thank you.
Thank you for marketing and selling our house. You made the process of selling easy and clear to understand for first time vendors like us. You are cheerful, calm and easy to talk to. Your real estate knowledge helped us overcome various hurdles on the way. Many thanks André and the Barfoot's staff!Tim, Glenfield
It was the first time I had sold a property for over 20 years and now I was doing it on my own following my husbands death. This was new territory - and Andréwas awesome at helping me navigate it. He was patient when I asked questions and always reassuring. Talking with André left me feeling like he really had my best interests at heart and was never pushy or in a rush. I think it's a testimony to his planning and follow-through that the house went on the market, received a pre-auction offer and was sold at auction 10 days after hitting the market. And for more than $100K above the pre-auction offer! André and his incredible team are superb servers - professional yet relaxed and made the whole exercise pretty painless.Dawn, Glenfield
The sale of my Glenfield property in November 2017 was managed by André Volkov. A polite, hard working professional who helped me through the process. I would highly recommend him & your company. I also endorse & totally agree with all the comments posted on André's website. Thank you André .Juliet Dodgson, Glenfield
This is the second time we have worked with André, once as a purchaser and recently as a seller.
André has always been very professional and efficient, and that coupled with good communication skills has resulted in very successful results.
We have no hesitation in recommending André to any prospective client.
When we finally decided to sell our first home we didn't think of going anywhere other than André. André is an excellent listener and was available to us for any and all questions. In a changing market, he provided us with the support and feedback to carry us through the process. His breadth of experience, organisation skills and sense of humour proved invaluable to us. We would highly recommend André to anyone looking to sell.Sachiv & Kash, Glenfield
André was unfailingly positive and optimistic throughout my home's campaign.
He was always courteous and professional in his conduct, never pushy, and explained the paperwork and processes to me clearly. André's marketing campaign and agent network found a buyer and produced results, so now I can move on to new adventures.
I found André very easy to be around, he explained the whole process of selling to me as it was my first time selling on my own. André is very professional, honest and patient. He was always available when needed and answered my continual questions which I appreciated. He visited every week with a progress review everything was so transparent - no hidden surprises. He showcased my house to the highest standard and I would not hesitate to recommend him.Valarie, Glenfield
I thoroughly recommend André when it comes to the daunting task of selling your home. He was passionate and professional and moved very quickly to get the house on the market, the photos and video were amazing and really showed it at its best. Each step was communicated thoroughly and in straightforward terms so that there was no confusion in the whole process. It made it a lot easier than expected. Thanks André for a quick, easy sale.Robyn, Glenfield
André you are a Winner. We first met André four years ago when he came to do an appraisal on our house. At that stage we were not considering selling. However, over the intervening years he kept in touch with an interesting real estate update newsletter or a quick visit to say hello. When we finally decided to sell we took great pleasure in choosing him. He was professional in every way, kept us informed of progress, results, open homes, emails etc. We absolutely would recommend André to anyone interested in buying or selling property. Many, many thanks André and your team.Margaret and Kelvin, Glenfield
We first met André a couple of years back when he did an appraisal on our property. He stayed in touch providing us with market updates so when it was time to sell he was an obvious choice. We found André to be extremely hardworking and honest throughout the sales process. He was always responsive to our queries and maintained excellent communication. We would happily recommend André to our friends and family.Tineka & Sean, Glenfield
We are thrilled that we chose André to sell our property for us. Everything about André's advice, marketing, communication and positivity was absolutely professional. We couldn't have asked for better. André also keeps things simple so that everything about our sale was easy to understand. We would have no hesitation in recommending André to anyone wanting to either sell or buy a property.Dave and Debbie, Glenfield
We are really happy that we chose André Volkov as our agent when we decided to sell our house. One of our neighbours had recommended him to us and we are glad that we took his advice.
We were getting a bit stressed at first when our house did not sell as quickly as we had hoped, but André was always very calm and reassuring. He kept saying to us "your house will sell, keep calm and carry on". We did that, and now our house is sold.
Thanks again André for all your help. We will happily recommend you to anyone who is looking for a really good agent to sell their house.
From the beginning, André showed knowledge and passion for selling our home, his integrity and enthusiasm made us feel we were in safe hands trusting him to do his best in achieving our goal. His ability in communicating every detail was excellent and professional. Within two weeks of advertising and two open home's our house was sold at auction and we were pleasantly surprised and happy with the remarkable outcome. André's character and personality made him a true friend on whom we could rely. Thanks André for your hard work that certainly paid off, we wish you and your company all the best.Cornelius and Christa, Birkdale
Selling your home is always an anxious time and what you need is an estate agent who is willing to listen to your worries and to help you through the quagmire of selling your house. As a single aging woman, having someone who I could trust and who would be honest and respectful was top priority. This I found in abundance in André. From the outset he listened carefully to what I required and managed my expectations with forthrightness and integrity. His passion for selling my home was obvious and I felt extremely comfortable with the selling process as he always kept me clearly informed of every aspect required to meet the market and gain the best price for my home. Thanks to his hard work, my home was sold in just over a week with a remarkable price that I couldn't be happier with. André's professionalism throughout made the whole process far easier than I had anticipated and hence I would unreservedly recommend André Volkov to anyone who is considering marketing their property.
Let me take this opportunity to thank you from the bottom of my heart for the awesome hard work resulting in the excellent sale of my property.
You ought to be commended on your clear communication, expertise and your ability to set targets and make a plan that allows them to be achieved.
From the first time we met, I knew that you had the personality and the character of a true friend. I suppose that was why the sale of my property went stress-free and with a happy non-compromising result.
You are a rare character to work with André and I do mean this in a very positive way. Your ability to easily establish a good rapport is an awesome marketing tool for your company. It is very seldom to trust a salesman but you are a rare one.
Please extend my sincere thanks to all your team for the excellent work - everyone contributed to the sale of my property.
I hope that we will stay in touch and I will certainly spread the good news of André Volkov to my community. I will recommend you to anyone who wants to sell their property
We became aware of André when we saw many of his Open Homes in our neighbourhood, we called in on several occasions and immediately stuck up a rapport, impressed with his enthusiasm, knowledge of the area and his integrity.
When we decided to sell our property we approached André , from the first meeting his professionalism was very evident, he provided a clear guide to the various stages of the sale process.
The entire process from signing the agreement to sell through to settlement was approximately 2 months, during that time we were provided with regular feedback on open homes and supplied with realistic valuations.
Right through to the day of the auction, the advice and support from Barfoot and Thompson staff was first rate, I am already advising friends and colleagues who are considering selling their homes to give Barfoot and Thompson an opportunity to do so.
During the whole process from providing a comprehensive property appraisal, first class advertising and André's commitment all leading to our successful auction sale. Andre kept us informed and updated with reports, his professional expertise and knowledge of the market made our sale stress- free. We would highly recommend Andre and his associate Qing, we couldn't have had a better team.Mike & Lisa, Totara Vale
We can totally recommend André and Qing when you are selling your home They were both very approachable and hard working. They were also very pleasant to deal with and tried their hardest for us. It was a pleasure to deal with them both. A big thank you to each of them I would recommend this team to anyone wishing to sellBrian and Dee Hargraves, Glenfield
André was just amazing. Professional to a T, charming, knowledgeable - both Keith and I felt that the property was in the best hands. Both André and his colleague Qing, kept us up to date with feedback and numbers coming through the property. It was just such a hassle free process and we were really happy with the outcome too. I would recommend Andre to anyone selling or even buying a property anytime.Keith & Catharine Morris, Birkdale
"We would like to take the opportunity to say thank you for your excellent service during the process of selling our house. We appreciate your assistance and expertise and have recommended you to a few people already.
All that we have read about you, in your newsletters, over the past years, we have experienced that and so much more. You have been on hand whenever we needed. Your pleasant disposition and smile gave us confidence and hope that we have chosen the right person for the job.
Also please pass our thanks to the team at Barfoot and Thompson.
We wish you well for the future and pray the best for many more sales. "
Thank you again,
When I saw your face, I liked it and said "this man will sell our house"
We could see in you that you are a person of integrity, confidence and that you are 100 percent passionate about your work. Our thoughts were, "if anybody can do it, André can!"
We were impressed with the professionalism that you and your company portrayed, during the whole process from advertising through to auction.
Thank you, André and Qing for your awesome input, you are the "A Team" and you have made our dreams come true!
Thank you for all the help you and Qing provided in selling our house. The experience we had was far more enjoyable and the outcome by far better than we had with another real estate company just prior. We were worried about selling over the Christmas and New Year period, but selling after only eleven days and been put into a three-way multi offer was beyond belief. It was quite clear that you and Qing knew the market and where to target.
To be honest all the staff at Barfoot & Thompson we have dealt with have been wonderful.
André was extremely professional, he wasn't pushy, he was knowledgeable, told us all our options fully informing us of the pros and cons of each and made sure we were happy with the path taken.
He clearly put in a lot of work to attract attention from potential buyers along with his team. Presented the photos and video of the house and made it shine. Regular reports updating us on the progress of open homes and scheduled viewing (always with notice) meant the whole process felt comfortable.
We were pleased to have chosen André to be the agent to sell our house and have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone who is considering selling their property.
André was recommended to us by a family that had recently sold in the same area. He looked after us through the entire process, making what seemed like a scary proposition, into a straightforward series of events culminating in a sale we were very happy with. His attention to detail, advice and communication were all faultless. He is an extremely hard worker but also very personable with nothing being too much trouble. I would have no hesitation in using André for any future house sales.Donna Massey, Glenfield
My husband and I enlisted André's help with selling our first home. Even from our very first meeting both my husband and I found him to be very positive, enthusiastic and knowledgeable. He gave us confidence through his open and honest communication and was always prompt for all of our meetings. We couldn't be happier with the result and all of André's hard work made a difficult process much easier to handle. So, if you are looking for someone to help you sell or buy, look no further.Lisha Garnet, Glenfield
André, you have done a fantastic job marketing our property. We have achieved such a great result at the auction because of your superb advertising campaign. Well done and keep up the good work. Much appreciated.Jane Proctor, Glenfield
Recently, on deciding to move north to be closer to family members we decided to use André to market our home. We felt certain that we knew him as he had unobtrusively kept in touch with us through his newsletters.
Being a retired senior person, putting our house on the market after being here for so long was no mean feat for us so we put our trust in André. We certainly were not disappointed. His grooming, time keeping and manner were impeccable throughout. An impressive and professional marketing plan was soon put together and his service to us throughout the process was beyond reproach. Making himself available at any time throughout the process for help and advice was very supportive for us.
Our home sold quickly during a cooling market period for a good price thanks to Andre's effort with the support of his team at Barfoot and Thompson in Glenfield. André is very knowledgeable and passionate about his job. He is amiable, doesn't give false hopes and will work tirelessly for his client. For those wanting a true professional to sell their home, André is your man.
My wife and I would like to thank you for all your efforts and commitment in selling our home. It has been a real pleasure to deal with you.
Your professional approach and dedication to a high level of customer service have made this a non-stressful experience, very smooth and enjoyable. We are very happy with the outcome and highly appreciative of your services. Many thanks, André.
After interviewing several Real Estate agents, we chose André Volkov because of his integrity and commitment. He is highly motivated and inspires confidence with his quiet, reassuring manner. He has a deep knowledge of the Real Estate business and a thorough knowledge of the area he is working in.
He handled the whole process of selling our home with dedication and confidence, keeping us fully informed every step along the way. We never doubted his ability to do his best for us. The results Andre achieved exceeded our expectations by far.
André is a brilliant Real Estate agent with superb skills and abilities. He is totally trustworthy and sincere. We are thrilled with the results he achieved for us. We would highly recommend him to anyone planning to sell. He is an exceptional man in so many ways. Thank you, André.
André has been simply brilliant through the sales process. Given I was on my own for the first time in selling a house, Andre was patient and understanding, listened to my concerns, fully explained all the options and the processes to me and kept me informed on a regular basis. Nothing was too much trouble for him and I would recommend Andre to anyone who is looking to sell their home.Lisa Byrne, Glenfield
André is not only a superb and meticulously efficient real estate professional but also a trustworthy person as a friend. We depended entirely on him when we sold our house. We are very happy to be associated with him.Tetsuo & Masako, Glenfield
André assisted finding a home within the Glenfield area during a time in which the market was particularly active.
We were pleased that André was able to listen, discern our needs and recommend a property that was suitable. During the subsequent auction and purchase process, he was more than helpful, going further than what was required, ensuring a successful outcome for all.
I would not hesitate to use (again) or recommend Andre services for buying or selling a home.
Thanks for keeping us informed. It's definitely now done & dusted. Whoopee.
We would also kindly comment that we have been impressed with your expertise & skills in helping us Sell our home.
Best wishes for the future.
Thank you very much, when my house was listed, sales marketing, advertising, eventually sold at a more expected price, your service is very good, considerate, approachable, dedicated, doing things quickly. I'd be glad to get your help again, thank you.Gui Ru Liu, Birkdale
André is professional and Qing is passionate, both of them are very responsible in their job. A weekly feedback received after each open home, enabled us to know about the latest progress. We were very pleased with the price sold at the auction and we highly recommend André and Qing, you wouldn't go wrong with choosing them. Once again a big thank you.Shao Jia Yuan, Glenfield
I am very pleased with the price we achieved at the auction. You, André, knew what you were doing from the very beginning and the sale went through smoothly without a problem. Overall, I am very glad I have appointed you as my agent.Pauline Stansfiled, Glenfield
Selling our home after twenty eight years to move to a retirement village was rather stressful. But André made everything so much easier than expected. From the first meeting we felt André was somebody we could trust. Through the whole process we were kept informed of what was happening. His suggestions were of great help. First Class advertising. I would recommend André to anyone who wished to sell or buy a property. He was always cheerful, professional and very helpful.George & Jeanette Squires, Glenfield
I would like to take this opportunity to give a wholehearted thank you to André Volkov for all the good advice he gave me in the process of selling my unit. He is very caring and genuine. He got the best price I could hope for and more. I would recommend André to everyone selling their property. Once again thank you André from the bottom of my heart.Barbara Squires, Glenfield
André could see the potential in our house for sale and delivered on the day at auction.
His knowledge of the Glenfield district was a great bonus to the sales process.
He was always easy to deal with and gave us good advice and suggestion at all times.
Thanks once again for the sale of our house and I would recommend Andre's services to anybody selling or buying a house in Auckland.
Selling my house was not something I was looking forward to, but I did have to move. André made the process less daunting than I expected. André patiently explained the process and answered all questions I had.
Being aged with some disabilities, he worked around that with expertise making me feel comfortable, especially during the open home days. I was kept informed on the progress and he was spot on about the predicted selling price.
André is sincere, professional, conscientious and very helpful, achieving a fantastic result in selling my home. All you did for me just proves that I made the right decision to list with you.
I would highly recommend Andre to anyone wishing to sell their home.
Andre, you are a fantastic sales professional! Your enthusiastic and dedicated efforts to market our unit for the best possible price was much appreciated.
You were always courteous, friendly and approachable with a ready smile and sense of humor. We were 'stunned' and our family also with the result at the auction, which by far exceeded our expectations.
We are both very grateful to you and the team at Barfoot and Thompson, who brought the marketing and subsequent sale of our property to such a great result in just two short weeks.
We sincerely recommend you, André Volkov and Barfoot and Thompson, Glenfield Branch to anyone considering the sale and purchase of a property.
André is really a hard worker and proactive, never stops, did an excellent job on selling our home. With his great experience and knowledge, he found the perfect buyer for our property.
Andre kept us updated through the whole process and always replied to emails and calls very quickly.
We would like to thank Andre for all his work, we are very happy with the end result and we highly recommend him if you are planning on selling your property.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank André for his help in selling our house.
Nothing was too much trouble for André, and he explained the procedure in a very friendly and informative manner.
He kept us informed every step of the way, and was very prompt in all replies to emails and phone calls and visits. We felt very comfortable in the knowledge that André was handling our sale.
Our house sold within days even before the first open home and for a premium price exceeding our expectations. We would have no hesitation in highly recommending André if you were considering buying or selling property.
André has recently sold my property for me. I was very impressed with his dedication and his expertise in the property market. His knowledge of the market is vast. He kept me in touch with the feed-back after each open home, and each viewing. It was a great pleasure to work with him. He always answered any questions or worries I had and he always "walked the extra mile". I was extremely pleased with the end result. Thanks André.Margaret Newman, Glenfield
Just thought I would send you an email to personally thank you for being so great to deal with while we were looking for a house. My Mum, Suzanne, mentioned that she had been in contact with you about our recent purchase of the house in Beach Haven, we are really happy and can't wait to move in. Unfortunately, we didn't get to buy a house from you in the end, but rest assured we would have loved to. Over the past few months we have dealt with a lot of agents, open homes, viewings and auctions and I must say you were the best! You made time for us, and even though we didn't have enough money to buy your houses - they sell for higher because of the outstanding service you provide and your vendors are lucky to have you.
Thanks again and please keep in touch,
There aren't enough words to describe André for his dedication, loyalty, caring & professional touch in dealing with his clients. He was committed and worked so hard to achieve the end result which I was so please and satisfied with. He always kept in touch with all what was happening and was exceptional and conscientious in everything he was doing. His high standards and loyalty to his clients are outstanding. He is the Best of the Best. His name stands out to anyone wanting to sell their home. He is a great asset to Barfoot & Thompson. We could not recommend anyone better. Ever so grateful. Best wishes.Shirley Harford, Totara Vale
Now that Ken and I have come back down to earth, i just want to say a big thank you for all your help with selling our property.
As you know I was so worried about listing the property with the dogs etc., but I am so pleased with how professional all the Barfoot & Thompson team were and through all the madness over the last few weeks getting the place ready to go to market and then the last 4 days once the property was listed everything went so smoothly and I am so pleased with the result.
We couldn't have asked for anything more..
All the agents that came through and brought their clients were fantastic. If you could please pass our thanks on it would be appreciated.
A whirlwind sale but with a great result from a great team.
All you did for us just proves to me we made the right decision to list with you.
We can now sit back and have a breather (finally had a good night's sleep last night) and then start to get ready for our big move onto bigger pastures - and it is bigger pastures, we will have to get you up for a visit once we have settled in. ( if you manage to get some spare time). You will always be welcome in our house.
Once again a Big Thank You.
I cannot recommend André high enough to anyone wishing to sell their house. Being older folks it was quite a daunting thought for us. We found his marketing skills were top rate and he showed us how to make our home look its very best. André works tirelessly for you, from his welcome mat at the front door to his prompt report on how the viewing day went. We were absolutely delighted with the result and how quickly the house sold. Many, many thanks André, you are wonderful!Judy and Ian Thomas, Glenfield
André helped my wife and I sell our first home. We came into it practically having no idea what we were doing. With André's guidance we were able to get the property on the market a lot quicker than we had intended.
André also provided a list of contacts which made it very easy to get the house looking amazing. André would call me after each open home and give me his honest opinion on how the open home went and how we could improve.
By the end of it André was more of a mate than an Agent. Would definitely recommend André's services to anyone.
André was my dream real estate agent when I decided to sell my Chartwell Ave house in the first half of 2015. He rocked up to my house one day, when I was planning to move out of Auckland. How did he know this, I wondered.
I listed my Glenfield property immediately after signing up to buy another property out of town, so the pressure to sell was on. Everything went smoothly at the Auckland end. The whole process was totally painless, with a progress report from André after each weekend of open homes. My property was the first lot at the auction and it sold easily, just as André had said it would. Throughout the one-month selling period, there was no stress at all for me.
A good working relationship with the real estate agent we select is essential. André understood what I wanted and worked hard to get a good result for me. I appreciated that very much indeed.
We would like to recommend André to anyone who is wishing to sell their house.
He is friendly, professional and extremely knowledgeable about the market.
His willingness to share advertising costs, along with encouraging us to stage our property, lead to a fantastic looking place in the large colour photographs produced by his agency that made us want to purchase it again!
The marketing was thorough and extensive, leading to a huge amount of buyers viewing the property. We were kept informed of progress at all times, and he was spot on about the predicted selling price.
When it came to choosing an agency and an agent, we approached 3 potential candidates. It was not a difficult decision to choose André and Barfoot and Thompson. André came across as the most honest, believable and approachable person, in a profession not known for these qualities.
Selling the house was a HUGE thing for us and we needed someone who understood us and would listen to us. André was that person. From the start, André made sure we understood the market, the selling process and what we needed to do to ensure the best outcome. He gave us very useful advice on how to prepare the property and we felt, by the time the house went on the market, that we couldn't have been better prepared.
André made sure he kept us totally informed, all the way. He was always available to answer our queries and concerns and he really made sure we felt like we were involved.
When it came to the sale, André handled the situation with our absolute confidence. The fact that we had to be overseas (and, therefore not at the auction), did not affect the outcome and we knew we could leave the sale in André's capable hands.
Overall, the sale of our house, led by André, was as painless as such a process can be. The financial outcome was amazingly good and we would not hesitate to use both André and Barfoot and Thompson again. Thanks André!
I would like to take this opportunity to thank André for the tremendous effort he made during the recent sale of my home. His professional manner, down to earth approach, cheerful enthusiasm and total commitment to keep me well informed throughout the process has been exceptional, nothing was ever too much trouble for him. I would highly recommend André to anyone requiring the service of an exceptional real estate agent.Beth Marshall, Glenfield
André did an outstanding job as our Real Estate Agent! He was knowledgeable , thorough and honest. His communication skills were excellent and he kept us well informed with regular updates and feedback. Our property was not an easy sell (long steep shared driveway and a plaster home) but a sale was achieved in four weeks at a price we were very happy with. Overall we found André to be very professional and wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to others.Cris & Nicky, Glenfield
We are writing to compliment André Volkov on the outstanding success he achieved with the sale of our mother's home at 9 Sunnyfield Crescent.
We offered the property for evaluation by André and another Real Estate Company. André wanted to win this sale and presented a strategy that would achieve a result far beyond that which was proposed by his competitor.
One could have been sceptical at the difference in prices but André backed up his higher expectation with expert advice, demonstrating how if different buyers were looking for different scenarios, they could all be achieved within the ideas he had for the property. His ultimate strategy was always the property investor, never the home buyer market. He advised that that was where the value could be achieved. Had he not suggested such a marketing strategy, we do not think we would have achieved the outcome.
He then made a video for his website that demonstrated all options to prospective buyers so that they were left in no doubt that they were buying a package that would add value for them in the future. The website had a lot of hits and definitely contributed to the successful outcome.
The family were constantly emailed and verbally communicated with.
André is a very professional salesperson who is committed to achieving the
best result for his customers. He did that for us and we would have no hesitation in recommending him to others.
My partner Andrew and I recently purchased a house from your agent André Volkov.
We wanted to comment on how professional and friendly he was. Our dealings with André were outstanding. His altitude was always about getting us into our family home not just a sale, which we really appreciated. We are really grateful for his assistance, honestly and solid advise.
Both Andrew and I would recommend André and Barfoot's services to anyone selling or wanting to buy. With thanks.
Thank you so much for your effort in marketing my apartment, I really appreciate your help. I also appreciate the fact that Barfoot & Thompson network of agents worked hard for me resulting in a multiple offer situation. This, in turn, led to an unconditional sale with the selling price exceeding my asking price. What a great result! Thank you and well done, indeed.Heinrich Rupp
My wife and I have no reservation in speaking highly of André in relation to all aspects of the process of selling our house. He was fabulous in our opinion and did everything and more than he originally spoke with us about prior to going to the market. If the opportunity arose we would not hesitate to recommend André as a very professional hard working agent. In our opinion he is a credit to his company.John & Judy Frith, Glenfield
Dear André, Just a note to say thank you for the part you played in the auction of my house. I was very pleased with the result and having had seven lovely years here, it's time to move on. The three times you visited my home I always found you very courteous, friendly, pleasant and smiling. Congratulations on selling the house and I wish you the very best in your career. A good job indeed well done.Barbara Alderson.
André is a superb sales professional. He has excellent hunting and account management skills and is totally focused on generating great outcomes for his customers André is a very intelligent man and understands the importance of analysing a market to gauge it's potential before attacking it rather than just jumping in and hoping for the best. Because of this he is one of the most consistent performer at Finda. On a personal level, André is a great man to have around the office and I really enjoy working with him.Ryan Watkins, Sales Director at Grab One
I was delighted that André requested that I write a few words about my experience with him over some 5 years or so while he represented Finda Ltd in his Senior Professional Sales role.
The very first thing anyone will notice about André is his impeccable grooming and dress sense, you know this guy means business when on top of all that he looks you in the eye with a kind smile while delivering a firm handshake.
André has excelled beyond what we expected at Industrial Textiles from a "sales rep", André has proved he is a dedicated Professional with an amazing personable style backed up by some very hard work, going the extra mile and always delivering beyond our expectations every time, overall a very strong work ethic.
For us, André's skill within the online marketing industry is remarkable; he clearly understands online marketing both from a technical perspective and from a marketing perspective and delivers that knowledge to his clients in a pleasant, straight forward and concise way.
Over the years I've become to view André as a friend, he immigrated from Russia with his family some 17 years ago, his soft accent is an asset, a point of difference and he clearly loves his new homeland New Zealand of which he has become a true Kiwi embracing our lifestyle and culture.
I congratulate André and Barfoot & Thompson on his new career, this relationship will be a win, win, win for them both and together for their clients whom will receive service beyond their imagination.
I would be delighted to offer my verbal reference to anyone should any clarification be necessary.
André is a high performing sales professional. André has consistently over-achieved both account management and new business targets in his time at Finda, André's strengths are his work ethic, persuasive nature, tenacity and a desire to ensure his customers are serviced to a high standard, he always ensures his customer understand what they are buying and this has created a very loyal following in his client portfolio. Finda has a philosophy 'you are building your business within Finda's business' on this basis André has built his business base year on year with one of the lowest churn rates in the company.Robin Dowe, Digital Sales Director Regionals at APN News Media
André is incredibly passionate, gets results and is a pleasure to work with!

I am impressed with his drive, determination, and tenaciousness. André has met or exceeded his sales quota each year and is fantastic with his clients. André is a talented Business Development Manager & I highly recommend André for employment. He is a team player and would make a great asset to any organization.
