About Alex Elton
I have been involved in real estate now for over 34 years. My working career began as an electrician in Mt Roskill and 12 years later in 1984, I joined Barfoot & Thompson. I spent the first four years selling from the Onehunga branch and then in 1988 transferred to Mt Roskill as manager of the branch, where I have remained ever since. This means that I have now completed a grand total of 46 years serving the Mt Roskill community, in one form or another.
I still run the Mt Roskill branch whose current staff is made up of a great mix of 36 multi-cultural personnel specialising predominantly in residential sales as well as providing a full property management service. My many years of running a successful branch I put down to having a caring nature and being someone who will always offer fast, professional, no-nonsense advice.
My greatest achievement whilst working for Barfoot & Thompson is having consistently run a truly successful operation over such a long period of time whilst balancing this with spending quality time at my Waiheke retreat with my five children and extended family members.
I believe that working for the wonderful and caring company that Barfoot & Thompson is, has to be one of the most rewarding and fulfilling passions any person could ever hope to rejoice in throughout their working career. As further testament to this, Barfoot & Thompson have just this year, 2018, been awarded the Best Real Estate Agency in the World, an amazing achievement in such a tiny country on a huge stage!
One of my proudest moments throughout my 34 years with Barfoot & Thompson was in 1996 when the Mt Roskill Branch achieved Number ONE for net profit in the company.
For me the many diversities which now exist amongst Mt Roskill's hugely multi-cultural and ethnic backgrounds makes my job even more enjoyable. I simply love working the area mainly because of the diverse nature of its people.
If you're ever thinking of selling, please feel free to either phone or call in and see me. Either I or my vastly experienced staff will be only too happy to assist you through the processes of marketing and selling your property.
