The Dream Team - outstanding professionals, outstanding results.
"We have lived in Titirangi for 20 years and we have bought and sold a number of properties during this time. This year, after 13 years in the same property we decided it was time to sell our 1970's home and purchase something a little more modern and with less property to maintain.
We selected the Dream Team, Sacha Collins and Brigid O'Connor from Barfoot & Thompson. My wife Shar had worked briefly in thereal estate industry in Titirangi and was able to see first-hand how this team worked behind the scenes. This is not the flashy stuff you often see, this is the grit and determination that is needed behind the scenes to work with all the interested parties and communicate every step of the way. My wife assured me that the Dream Team were going to work harder for us than any other salesperson in Titirangi, as she had seen their work ethic and results first-hand.
The Dream team developed a very good plan for our house and gave us every assurance that their plan would work for us. We were kept informed daily and we were blown away by how well they operated as a team. The thing with really good teams is that they know and capitalise on each other's strengths. They inherently know which team member is better at some things than the other and they know how to ensure the customer or vendor receives the best performance from that team and those collective strengths.
My wife and I are very happy customers. The Dream team sold our house for more than we hoped for. They navigated Level 3 Lockdowns, they secured additional marketing for us and they were kind to us, our family and our pets throughout the entire process.
The Dream Team also stepped in for us at the Auction when we purchased a new home. They did this because they cared about us and knew we could not be there under the Level 3 Covid rules. There was no monetary reward for doing this as we had already engaged with the listing salesperson. The Dream Team went above-and-beyond for their vendors. That's a fact.
If you are thinking of engaging an salesperson in Titirangi, we recommend you list it with the hardest working team out West. The Dream Team, Sacha and Brigid will exceed your expectations."Dave & Shar Bell
"Just wanted to say a massive THANK YOU again for the amazing auction result this morning. We are absolutely thrilled and still can’t quite believe it! You have been absolutely outstanding to deal with, have answered all our questions and gone above and beyond to meet our requests and put up with our crazy puppy. Ngā mihi nui kōrua, I whakamaioha māua ki tēnei mahi e a korua. We appreciate this work you have done for us! Thank you!"Becky & Michael
We cannot recommend Sacha and Brigid highly enough; they have been an absolute pleasure to work with. Selling our house turned out to be a smooth and positive process, we could not have requested anything better.
Sacha and Brigid are honest, professional, kind and approachable and above all their communication is amazing! They were available anytime we had a question and provided valuable feedback throughout the campaign, which helped ease the nerves of selling our much- loved family home.
The marketing campaign was carefully considered and perfect for our needs, with only two weekends of open homes and then selling under the hammer for a price we never imagined would happen!
We feel so lucky to have sold with such an honest and relatable team. We even bought our next home with the support and advice from both Sacha and Brigid.
Sacha and Brigid, we cannot thank you enough and will be recommending you to all our whānau and friends Lauren & Jerome - Tahi Terrace
We are so pleased that we sold with Sacha and Brigid. From our first contact to the sold sticker was just six weeks. They were brilliant to deal with, proactive, honest, friendly and helpful in every way. We highly recommend them for their warm and professional service. They really were the Dream Team for us!Shudall Family
Thank you, thank you, thank you! I can not describe how happy we are ...and relieved...and amazed! You guys really are the dream team. Thank you for everything you did and for hanging in there with us.
We will certainly be recommending you to anyone who will listen :)Ali and Phil
Sacha and Brigid achieved a great result for me. My house was marketed to the correct buyers and within the first week I had seven offers to choose from. I couldn't have been more thrilled and was very impressed with all their hard work.K Laurie
Brigid and Sasha delivered an exceptionally professional, friendly service and we felt went the extra mile to make listing and selling our home as easy as possible. They delivered a fantastic result on auction day, and did a superb job managing buyers requests and our needs!Nardine & Matt, Laingholm
We would not hesitate to recommend Brigid, Sacha, Kevin and the team at Barfoot & Thompson Titirangi. Right from the beginning we found them warm and relatable, they really understood us and our house, and the marketing campaign and photography was spot on. They achieved record viewings at our open homes and the property was sold in half the time we expected and for a price we had hardly dared hope to achieve. We also loved how hands-on they were throughout the process and always available, a real point of difference to other agents we've experienced. The Dream Team certainly delivered on all counts and we can't thank them enough!Catherine Orford
Brigid and Sacha were a perfect fit for me when it came to selling my home. They were both highly relatable, listened deeply, and created a strategy for marketing that had my home sold within five days of it going on the market for the best price I could have realistically hoped for. Not only did they get me a great price, they did it with ease and grace, and they did it fast. Cannot recommend these two highly enough.Hamish - Woodglen Road
We just wanted to say thank you again for all your hard work during the sale of our house. You made the whole process super easy and stress free with great communication and being extremely responsive to our questions and needs. You positioned the house in the market perfectly and we loved the video you did of the house too. The effort you put into marketing our property was evident. Thank you also for your helpful suggestions and getting us such a great outcome! We couldn't be happier and will definitely recommend you to others.
Thanks again and thanks also for the yummy champagne :)
From appraisal to completed sale, Brigid and Sacha certainly lived up to The Dream Team billing! Selling after a 45 year tenure was quite a nervous time for us but Brigid and Sacha eased us through the process in a friendly and efficient manner. Their marketing plan and method of sale was innovative and so successful. We even signed the contracts whilst overseas, how good is that Many thanks for a great resultJohn and Sheila Worrall - Thanks for the bubbly
Wow just wow - Sacha and Brigid are awesome! They sold our house after one weekend of open homes, and I can honestly say they are a cut-above the rest. They really look after the vendors and purchasers. Such a professional team - highly highly recommended!!Aisling Mikosza Valley Road, Titirangi
Sacha & Brigid are true professionals from the very beginning right up until the sale of our property & they are still available to help and offer their advice whenever we need.
We haven't met any other agents quite like the Dream Team....honest, approachable and always prepared to go out of their way to deliver!
Thank you Sacha and Brigid, selling our home was such a smooth process - your knowledge, guidance but most importantly your integrity (which we have experienced is not consistent amongst all agents unfortunately). We highly recommend the Dream Team!
We can't recommend Sacha and Brigid highly enough to sell your home. They've sold my mother's house, a family property and now our home. They work extremely hard but they're also smart about it. Their marketing is clever and well pitched for each individual home. They understand people and are observant when working with potential buyers. They adapt to the market changes and know how to advise you on the best options for your sale. As well as all of that they're lovely, fun and excellent at reassuring you through what can sometimes be a stressful process! I'm only sorry I can't see us selling again as it means we won't get a chance to work with them. With some agents you're never sure if they're telling you the truth or if they actually care about your house. You don't have to worry about that with this team. Thanks so much!Meg de Ronde
We had to sell our house in difficult circumstances, with one failed attempt to sell in a booming market using another agency behind us, we looked to Barfoot and Thompson. Scrolling through the Agents, trying to find the best fit for the property we had and personalities to match us and our situation, Sacha and Brigid stood out as an excellent fit on all fronts. From the first meeting to the last, both were sympathetic, discrete, patient and as professional as you could ever hope for. Without hesitation I recommend them to anyone who is looking for the best in terms of a partnership to help them sell their home.P Smith
Now the dust has well and truly settled on the sale of our house, we just wanted to drop you a line and say thanks so much for all your help and guidance through the process.
We've bought and sold properties quite a few times in the past decade as we've moved around, but you made this transaction very easy and uncomplicated for us.
We really did appreciate your professionalism and friendliness, we always got the feeling you really were working for us. That's not something we've had during the sale of our other houses.
Thanks for the bubbles on the day of the auction, and for the lovely gift basket that arrived on our doorstep last week.
Thanks so much once again we wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to friends and family.
We thank Sacha and Brigid for selling our family home in Laingholm. Having worked in the real estate market in West Auckland, I know from first-hand the advice Lisa and I were given was accurate and honest. They ran a fantastic campaign, the marketing and photography were superb, all of which enabled us to achieve the price we required for our property and allow us to make our move onwards and upwards.
This is the second time we have put our trust in Sacha and both times myself and family have been more than thrilled with the results, listen to these girls and they will get the job done, whatever the market is saying. Personally we wouldn't go anywhere else.
Sacha and Brigid did a great job letting us know everything that was happening with the sale of our house and advising us what to do to get the best price. It is with great thanks to them that the whole process was very successful and they have two very satisfied clients. Thank you both.Dean And Jacky Warrington
Firstly we would like to thank you very much for all you did to sell our house. We have been really pleased with the outcome and throughout the process you both have been fantastic! We have appreciated your support and consistent communication. Throughout the open homes we were kept well informed of progress with both verbal and written reports. This is so helpful for us as vendors and we were very interested to see who had been through our house, how many and the way you followed up after each open home. In addition we found your marketing programme from the initial photos to auction day was professional, to a high standard and you always worked towards a successful outcome for us. You were honest with us and up front which kept us grounded and informed. We were also highly impressed with the number of other Barfoot Sales agents from different offices that came through. We would highly recommend you both, would certainly use your services in the future and will spread the word of how great it was working with you! With thanks and best wishesMichael and Michelle Hall
Sacha Collins and Brigid O'Connor work very well together as a team. They gave us the best advice about how to present and sell our home. The marketing and photos were perfect which resulted in a great number of people viewing the property and many buyers bidding at the auction.
Overall Sacha and Brigid have done an amazing job and we would choose them again. Thank you for everything!
Sacha and Brigid did a fantastic job of marketing our house. We had ample buyers through and others sales agents through right till the day before our auction. The marketing was on point and we could have not been more happier. Both these ladies know their stuff I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to sell or buy a house. We had a very successful campaign that went well above reserve. Thank you ladiesRos Ryan
Welcome to a dynamic duo, two fine business women, Sacha and Brigid!
If you like to enjoy life while at work, and appreciate excellent and thorough communications, then their expertise and attention to detail ensures a good outcome in the process of marketing and selling your property.
Professionalism combined with a joyful outlook supports viewers of your property to get a good idea of how your place might be suitable for them. Sacha and Brigid manage interested parties and their queries very well with real answers, and on the day of the auction they calmed our nerves and made us smile. We loved working with them and I discovered everything they say about what they offer is true, (and more) - and how good is that!
Selling your home of 40 years can be quite an emotional rollercoaster.
Sacha Collins and Brigid O'Connor from Barfoot and Thompson were an excellent choice for us.
What a dynamic team, professional, highly skilled and experienced they offered expert advice whilst remaining down to earth, warm and understanding.
They marketed our property extremely well with excellent marketing text, fabulous professional photography and a brilliant video all of which contributed to the high numbers of buyers viewing our home. We were kept up to date at all stages, and felt very happy with the level of service provided. On auction day there was good competitive bidding for our home and we were very happy with the selling price.
We would definitely recommend Sacha and Brigid in a heartbeat for selling your home!
We made the decision to have Brigid and Sasha sell our home based on their warm and professional manner at other open homes we had been to. It proved to be a wonderful decision as they enabled us to far exceed the figure we had hoped to reach for our New Lynn property. We found both to be honest and ethical in their approach to the sale of our property, providing us with advice which was in our best interest in terms of reaching the maximum price. Selling a house has the potential to be an extremely stressful event. However, Brigid and Sasha managed it in such a way as to minimise interruptions to our lives and leave us feeling confident that the sale was in good hands. We would highly recommend both agents to anyone and should we ever need to sell again will definitely know who to turn to. Thank you again for a stress-free and wonderful result.Noel and Freya
We would have no hesitations recommending Brigid & Sacha. They provided a personable approach to the sale of our house and were professional and enthusiastic from day one. They offered helpful guidance and assurance which helped to set our minds at ease during what would have otherwise been a very stressful time. We got the result we were after and are certain this was due to Brigid & Sacha's excellent management of our house sale!J Clarke
I would like to thank Bridid & Sacha so much for being part of selling my home. They gave me good advice and kept me and my daughters informed throughout the entire process. I found them both very easy to deal with, efficient and very approachable. I was very impressed with the outcome and result of the sale of my home and would highly recommend them both for any of your Real Estate needs.Vanessa Lawrence
We recently sold our home with Sacha and Brigid. From the start they expressed real enthusiasm and seemed to understand why we fell in love with our home, which progressed to a great marketing campaign and a fantastic result at auction. They were very professional, offering expert advice and at the same time were down-to-earth, warm and understanding. We were kept up to date at all stages, and felt very happy with the level of service provided. We would definitely recommend Sacha and Brigid in a heartbeat for selling your home!Adam and Laura
We were very pleased with Sacha Collins and Brigid O'Connor's sales performance for our property at 324A Glengarry Road. They gave us the right indication about the price range of our house and did not give us any false hope which I did experience with lots of other agents prior to selecting them. They listened to our views throughout, and put an excellent campaign in place. We are very pleased with their professionalism and would recommend them to all our friends who are keen to sell in this market.Rahul Sharna
Brigid & Sacha were very open, honest and reliable from go to whoa. They took us through all material and educated us well on selling a property as it was the first time we have sold. We learnt a lot through this process and it was very valuable to us. Our trust in Brigid & Sacha is high, as they were very real throughout the process and over delivered in every area. I would not hesitate to use Brigid & Sacha's services again and will recommend them to friends and colleagues.K & G Wootton
Having lived in and loved our family home for ten years it was amazing to find a team that understood exactly what the home could offer and to communicate to others how well it had fitted our life with friends over the years - almost as if they had been there with us the whole time we owned it. I couldn't have asked for a team that understood the process, the market and who made selling, and buying so seamless. We will certainly contact them again in 10 years to sell our next house.C. Purdy
We found Sacha and Brigid to be absolutely fantastic to work with, completely professional but also warm and personal. The sale of our house went through quite effortlessly it seemed and extremely quickly. Thanks for a great job and making it all so easy.J Woodside
I have in the past sold several residential properties (having been in a job that entailed regular transferring) and when I first spoke with Sacha I informed her that past experiences with Land Agents had not left me with many fond memories and I was hoping for a far better experience in this instance. Without doubt Sacha has assisted in lifting my impression of the profession as in all regards she proved that she was working for us and in a very professional manner.
It was a pleasure working with her and Brigid (and also LeAnne..Titirangi branch Manager) and also Jo van Kam of the Mt Albert office (the purchasers agent) and I was impressed that everything happened so fast which under the circumstances was really needed. The team of 4 (Charlies Angels!!!) was a formidable force and between them all they kept us up to date with developments and basically never led us on a merry chase. Their professionalism was very much appreciated by myself and my parents and I thank them all for a great result.
"Brigid and Sacha marketed and sold our house in Woodfern Crescent. From the initial discussion to the auction we were very happy with the process. Brigid and Sacha gave sound advice, listened to our views throughout, and put an excellent campaign in place. We always felt they were working for us and creating the best possible exposure to the market. Communication was always clear, and we never felt pressured over any decision. We were impressed with Brigid and Sacha's professionalism and work ethic and strongly recommend them to anyone thinking of selling their home."Tony
"Recently we sold our home with Sacha and Brigid. Not only did we find them a pleasure to deal with, they also exhibited a thorough understanding of the market drivers in the Titirangi area.. They both listened to our opinions, while offering expert advice on saleability, marketing, and most importantly, on achieving the best price for our home. This was a difficult sale for us, being emotionally attached to the house and environment. Their input during the process was therefore valuable and appreciated."Sean
"The Barfoot team; Brigid and Sacha, if you are wanting a dynamic duo to sell your house then these two ladies more than fit the bill. Having listed with another company and experienced an agent that appeared to be more interested in selling my house for the least amount of money. Brigid and Sacha were honest in their appraisal of my home and bought a new sense of positivism to the marketing of my home, when I had lost confidence, in my house selling.
Important in this process were the little touches these two bought to the open homes, 'soft music' in the background, the 'lovely cards' outlining the groups that visited, 'lighting the fire' to provide that warm ambience only a fire can bring, each of which contribute to the successful marketing of your home. Finally a team approach, allows not one person but two, working fulltime on selling your home. Brigid and Sacha bring a lot of experience, professionalism and a commitment to selling your home at a price which will meet your expectations. I know if I sell my new home they would be my 1st point of contact. Thank you both"
