Babu George has been a pleasure to deal with, good sense of humour, humble, interested only in what you want, makes you feel totally at ease. Unflappable manner, nothing seems to worry Babu, seems to thrive on doing so much at once, settles your nerves and says it will be fine, don't worry.
Babu assesses the overall situation and works to a plan, cannot fault the commitment level, e.g. 12 hours a day. Extremely communicative keeps you up to date on any developments in, e.g. buying and selling house etc.
From my wife Lee and I, we would once again like to reiterate what a pleasure it has been to deal with Babu. We would recommend Babu and his Barfoot & Thompson support team to anyone interested in selling their house.
We found Babu and David to be hardworking, reliable and trustworthy. The price feedback we received from the open homes was reflective of the sale price. The marketing campaign was a great success with 26 groups through the open homes. Our house was the only house of the 19 to sell on the day in the auction room. We have no hesitation recommending Babu & David to anyone who is thinking of selling.Kim & Lance Rakuraku
"We were introduced to Babu due to him taking the time to approach us when we were building a house. He was the only agent who actually took the time to see what we were doing with the property and so when it came time to sell he was the first person we rang. Babu straight away gave us confidence that he knew what he was doing and knew the market we were selling in. He has a lot of experience that he could draw on to assist us. Although our property didn't sell at auction within days we had an offer and Babu negotiated a great sale price which we were very happy with. We always felt that Babu was working for us as the sellers and doing his best to meet our needs. Babu went above and beyond with his communication to us and the marketing of our property. We would definitely use Babu again and would recommend him to all other sellers".Karen & Danny Tobeck
"Babu did a fantastic job helping us purchasing our first home! Being complete novice at buying real estate, we knew we would make mistakes. But thanks to wise guidance from Babu we have gone unconditional without any complications. The process was straight forward and Babu made sure we were informed on every step immediately. I was expecting to be pressured into the purchase by an agent, but instead I got lots of attention and sound advice. Highly recommend Babu if you are buying your first home! It's stressful enough so it makes a huge difference to know that you have someone looking out for you"
Coming from the bottom of my heart!
Babu recently sold our property in Thompson Terrace, Manurewa. He was a pleasure to work with - there were multiple owners but he kept us all updated throughout despite that tripling his workload. He is very engaged in the cycle and works hard for the vendor, and obviously enjoys his role in the process. I am happy to recommend using Babu if you have a house sale on your horizon.Debbie Davies
I met Babu when he was selling a neighbors' house. He maintained a very high standard of work throughout the period, and the photos taken were high quality and great.He was so energetic, enthusiastic and helpful with his ideas. His communication and approach was excellent during the whole process. He conducted three weeks open home and had a Pre-auction offer too. The house sold through Auction for much more than was anticipated. Babu was a fantastic agent to deal with. I have no hesitation in recommending Babu to anyone who is thinking of selling and buying a property in Manurewa.EM Gillard(Lani)
We, as first home buyers were so fortunate to have Babu George as our agent who recently assisted us buy our first home. Babu has been extremely helpful and always there when we needed him no matter what. With his warm, friendly and professional attitude leading us to buy the house we wanted was beyond our expectations.
I would recommend Babu to anyone buying their property.
I met Babu via referral from a close work mate on the 29th November at 12.30pm. 5 hours after my initial meeting with Babu I was presented with all the information including my appraisal and plan for selling my property. I had 5 days to prepare my property ready for my first Open Home. During these days he was in contact with me every day making sure that we were on target, keeping me up to date on what he was doing to sell my property and offered help if I required it. My house was officially on the market the day of the first Open Home and by 9pm I had my first conditional agreement, three days later I had a backup unconditional agreement. I put this down to the extensive marketing, (photos, trademe, flyers, signage etc) advice, and hard work that he put in . I was very pleased with the result as I got two really good offers and even though my property had agreements, buyers were still coming to my property, driving by and taking pictures of the sign. Babu was also available any time I had a question big or small. I found Babu to be very professional at all times, he is honest, hardworking, caring reliable person. I have been with other agents in the past, and have not had the same success that I had from Babu. If you wish to sell your home, I strongly advise you to choose Babu as he is "The Best".Mere Prouse, Burswood
Words cannot describe how fortunate I was to have Babu George as my estate agent. As a first time home buyer, Babu painlessly guided me through the process and did so ever so patiently. He always answered every call or email no matter what time of day or night it was and was extremely helpful and supportive at every step of the buying process. His commitment to not only the sale but myself as the buyer was above and beyond expectations.
I would recommend Babu to anyone buying a home.
Babu recently acted for us in the sale of our house in Manurewa.
At all times Babu acted on our behalf with the utmost dedication, perseverance, and professionalism. He worked long hours and into the night making sure every detail was attended to, and keeping in touch with all.
From the start, he gave us a detailed road map of the marketing process, including Open Homes, advertisements online and in print, flyers, etc. He provided us with regular and detailed progress reports, diligently followed up each and every lead, kept in touch with potential buyers, and gave us valuable feedback on the opinions of open home visitors, and the market in general.
This was not a straightforward process, we made things very difficult, as we had to delay the start of the marketing by some weeks, as our new property was not available when first promised, and then we departed on a previously booked coach tour of the South Island in the middle of the open home schedule. And when it became apparent some prospective buyers misunderstood the time of the open home and turned up an hour and a half early, Babu made sure he arrived that early for the next open home just in case there were others.
Yet despite all this Babu persisted, kept us informed, and succeeded in the sale by auction as promised.
We cannot recommend Babu highly enough.
We met Babu George when he came to our home to introduce himself as the real estate agent selling our neighbour's home. We were very impressed on how hard working and dilligent he was in selling that property and then saw the very good financial result he got for the sale. We had been considering selling, so meeting Babu just made us decide to give it a go. After three weekends of Open Homes he sold our much loved home of twelve years through auction with a very, very good financial result we might add and without any problems for us. We would be very happy to recommend Babu George to anyone planning on selling or buying a home. We found him to be very professional, honest, reliable and hard working. Many thanks.Val and Ted Ratana
Babu came highly recommended from my friends and he did not disappoint us. He has excellent people skills and great enthusiasm, and he went the extra mile to help in the preparations of my property for the sale. Babu operated with integrity and complete transparency. We found that several other agents did not meet this same level of professionalism - albeit that Babu does set the bar very high. He was very good at keeping us regularly informed and we knew we were in good hands throughout the process. The process was easy, pleasant, supportive and problem free. Even we felt like we were the only one Babu was working for. We got updates within 30mins of the open homes closing, amazing. Babu worked extremely hard during the whole process and sold our home successfully. We would highly recommend Babu to any friend or colleague and wouldn't hesitate to engage him again for any purchase/sale in the future."Leipa & Siliga
Selling our much loved home after 37 happy years was not an easy task for us. Thankfully we found Babu to be a very honest and reliable person. Even though Babu was contracted to sell our property he helped us purchase a property in Gulf Harbour. He drove us few times all the way to Gulf Harbour to search properties.
From the first meeting his honest and confident approach and explanation of the paper work involved, presentation of video, photographs and advertising confirmed that we could not have been in safer hands.
Babu was always available, keeping us up to date with progress after the Open Homes and attention at the actual Auction were so reassuring, and because of his efforts a successful outcome was the ultimate result. It was a delight to work with him. Babu worked hard on our behalf.
We are vey pleased to recommend Babu George who we met recently when he assisted with the sale of our property. At all times Babu was extremely helpful with a warm and friendly attitude and completely professional and thorough in manner and presentation. We have no hesitation in recommending Babu to anyone selling their property.Chris and Pattie White, Remuera
We have worked with Babu when buying our property. We had such a positive experience from the beginning and until we bought our home. We enjoyed his honest and up front approach. Throughout the process he utilised his excellent negotiation skills which helped us buying our first home. We would recommend Babu over other agents as you don't get 'the run of the mill service'. Babu is a vibrant and warm person with natural sales ability. We wish Babu to become a best real estate agent and one day we would proudly tell our friends that this outstanding estate agent who helped us buying our first home. We have no hesitation to recommend Babu for any customers who wish to buy or sell.Helan & Gregory Roy, Freeman's Bay
