Sales Associate to Team Matt & Ryan
Drive & Passion Award, Barfoot & Thompson, to end March 2021
Top Salesperson, Grey Lynn Branch, to end March 2020
I’m a competitive person and I love a challenge, so it is always a thrill when I sell my clients home, and help them find the house they have been dreaming about.
I have a Diploma in Aircraft Engineering and prior to joining the team at Barfoot & Thompson Grey Lynn I was an aircraft engineer at Air New Zealand working on the airlines jet fleet. As in real estate, it was an exacting job often solving commercial and practical problems.
My energy and people skills gives me the ability to clearly understand their goals and being a tech savvy engineer, I know how to use all the latest social media to market your property successfully.
Growing up and living in central Auckland, namely Mt Eden, means I know the area’s well. You can be assured that I understand the process from a buyers perspective too. I’ve been there and done that! I’ve built my own property portfolio, right from assessing the current market to falling in love with a home.
I like to challenge myself and I enjoy competing in Ironman triathlons. The same self-discipline and determination needed to train for such an event is reflected in my real estate work. I keep going until the job is completed and clients are happy with the outcome.
Outside of the office, I enjoy endurance events that challenge me. Swimming, cycling, and marathon running and when I have time, surfing, cars, motorbikes. When I stop I like to read with a particular interest in health and personal development. Barfoot & Thompson’s involvement in the community and their network sponsorship of sport, was a big drawcard for me.
I believe in always going one step further in life to achieve the desired result. Ring or email me at Barfoot & Thompson Grey Lynn and we’ll start planning to achieve your goals.
"Ben has been so awesome to work with and it has been a completely different experience to last time for me. He’s been super diligent, honest, hard-working, patient with my questions, but best of all he LISTENS! I feel totally confident in his involvement in selling our property based on the experience of buying with his support."Jennifer & Jordan
"Ben Buchanan was an exceptional salesperson to deal with in regards to Schofield Street. We both felt he was 100% honest with us at all times and his communication was faultless. We're giving this feedback as it was positive to experience this service in a market where salespeople are shifting houses so quickly, with some suffering from complacency. Ben is a real credit to Barfoot & Thompson."Geoff & Elisha
"We would highly recommend anyone looking to buy or sell to work with Ben. He’s super easygoing and a delight to work with."Catherine & Jordan
"Thank you Ben for your tireless work and persistence in marketing our house to such a high level. We were speechless with the results. To say that we are impressed with you and your team is an understatement."Greg & Crystal
