To me, real estate is more than just a job. It is an opportunity for me to give back to my community and help people find a new place to call home. Whether you are looking to up-size with a growing family or downsize as the kids fly the nest, I can help. My approach is to be open, honest and to give everyone a fair chance at finding their dream home.
I am entering the real estate business following a successful career in retail. I began as an everyday assistant and worked my way up to become a manager of five departments. I increased the growth and presentation standard in my field of work. As a result I became the ‘subject matter expert’ across eight stores over the Northland area, turning over millions of dollars a year. Much of my prior success I can attribute to my “getting stuck-in, can-do” attitude. I bring these traits with me to Barfoot & Thompson.
Young and eager, I have a drive for high performance, excellent customer service and a passion to deliver the best I can. I work hard to help you get the results you deserve.
I was raised and reared in Auckland and moved to Whangarei four years ago for work. I haven’t looked back. From the friendly locals to the beautiful beaches in the surrounding areas, I have made Whangarei my home.
If you are looking at selling, buying or just wondering how much your property is worth, feel free to give me a call for a free, no obligation, appraisal.
I look forward to hearing from you soon.
Ben was representing Barfoot & Thompson real estate for the sale of our house. He has been very active in keeping us informed of the market and house prices for the period that we had not decided yet on selling.
Once our decision was made, he organised the photography and advertising very quick. We had many open homes and he was actively promoting our house.
He has been a pleasure to deal with, always polite and ready to discuss any queries we had.
We are happy to recommend Ben as your salesperson.Arie & Johanna Reek
We recently listed our house for sale with Barfoot & Thompson in Whangarei, and would like to thank them for the wonderful service they gave and the results they achieved. Bruce and Ben delivered exactly what they said they would, getting the good price they suggested, in a very short period of time. They were extremely helpful, taking complete control of the sale for us under difficult circumstances. Many thanks, and we would give them 100 percent recommendation to anyone thinking of selling.Denise
