What my clients say

A job well done is something my late husband Brian always took pride in when he was building, and this house was the last one he ever built so It has been a very special home for us. Having Bob Voss to sell it was also very special and made all the difference in a stressful process. Thank you to everyone who recommended Bob to us. As a real estate salesperson and a person, Bob Voss is genuine, honest and helpful. It was not an easy decision to put our treasured home on the market. The market took a downturn and I had some health issues. Throughout all the ups and downs, Bob supported us in the process of selling and has been professional, honest and so caring of every detail. Thank you Bob for a job well done.

Karen Campbell

"Bob was awesome. In a market which took a huge nosedive as we were just about to begin selling, we were blown away to have five bidders at auction and also to reach a price which we felt was at the upper end of the market. Bob was also calm, realistic and not prone to big swings in what the 'market' may be doing. He was tenacious with the potential buyers that we did have and was persistent without being overbearing. Bob was also helpful in us making the purchase of a new house."

The Walker Family Trust

"Bob was pleasant to deal with and was knowledgeable about the area. We received a good price for the property in a short amount of time with his help."

Tony Bush

"Bob was a fantastic salesperson and so easy to work with. Very thorough and thoughtful, he thought of details I hadn't considered. I hope we can work with Bob again in the future!"

Hayley Wilson

"Bob has handled a couple of sales and purchases for us, and - in an environment that requires a high degree of trust - we believe Bob has always represented our best interests openly and honestly and with fact-based data to support the process ..... Thx Bob."

Philip & Kisa

"Bob sold our family home and was simply a decent guy to work with. Bob offers a lovely mix of attention to detail, experience, and professional diplomacy. Bob's amiable nature intertwined with his market knowledge is a winning combination."

Ree Stansfield

Becky was willing to go the extra mile, always with a smile and up-beat attitude. She communicated everything that was happening in a professional and timely manner.

Helen & Linda Kendall

"Becky was selling my father's deceased estate for us. She was outgoing, helpful and communicative. Nothing was too much trouble. She worked hard at the auction procedure and achieved a pleasing result for us."

The Estate of Veljko Curin

"Bob Voss has been amazing to deal with - both 11 years ago when we bought our home and again recently when we sold it in 2022. Bob was our first choice of salesperson to sell with. He has been totally clear, honest, transparent and communicative throughout the entire process - going above-and-beyond to help us in any way he could. We would 100% recommend Bob Voss to anyone looking to both buy or sell a home, especially in the East Coast Bays or wider North Shore areas."

Felicity Bakx

"11/10. Outstanding. Very trustworthy, loyal, straightforward. Extremely calm under pressure - quite impressive. Always wanted to do the best for us - genuinely. Not a full-on real estate salesperson driving a Mercedes with a facade. Totally recommended."

Vivienne Walker

"Bob and his team were excellent to deal with. Great communication, kept us well informed, and provided experienced and considered advice and feedback. The sale process played out pretty much exactly as Bob had indicated was most likely. Would have no hesitation in using Bob as our salesperson again and will highly recommend to others."

Nick Turner

Bob and his team ran a very professional campaign which yielded a result that exceeded our expectations. His communication, organisation and availability made what should be a stressful endeavour, an absolute breeze. We have absolute confidence in recommending Bob, Becky & Leah.

Thanks team!"

Michael & Lisa

"Bob was a pleasure to deal with. We haven't sold a house for over 20 years. He came to us via a work colleague of his in another area and was always on hand with answers when we pestered him with questions. Follow up has been great. We have already recommended Bob to two friends." -

Mike & Yvonne

"Thank you Bob for making the process of selling our house in New Zealand an easy one. You guided us through every step and communicated with us at all times. Thank you for all the good advice. We had used you in the past when looking for a house and we had no hesitation in seeking your expertise when it came to selling our house from afar. And thank you also to your lovely assistant, Leah, for all her efforts."

Saray & Ben

"Bob was recommended, and I will be doing the same. He was honest and realistic, and for selling a home you want those qualities. If there was more stars, I would give it. Bob has taught me a lot about buying and selling homes. I have had a good experience with the transaction, which comes down to the professional and personal experience that Bob Voss gave us. I will be putting his name forward to anyone looking to buy or sell a home."

James O

"Bob was great to work with, easy, thorough, and considerate of our needs. Would highly recommend working with this team!"

James & Julia

"Great communication, excellent service, great result. A great team who go the extra mile for both the vendor and the purchaser. In it for the long haul, they don’t cut corners but provide pleasant surprises and great outcomes."

Warren P

Bob not only sold my mothers home and ours (at the same time,) but he managed to find our new home as well. Even with such a lot going, on Bob kept us informed of progress every step of the way. His attention to detail and regular communication, made what could have been a stressful time extremely easy. We were absolutely delighted with every aspect of dealing with Bob and his team.

Elena Sanders & John Johnson

Bob and his team were excellent to work with. Clear communication about the stages of the sale and great guidance in the auction process, which was very new to us. I would highly recommend Bob and his team to get the job done, with great sound advice along the way. Could not be happier.

Sue & Adrian Trace

Bob, Becky and Leah are a dynamic team. Professional but not pushy. Great communicators and effective marketers. The sale went according to plan and achieved the desired outcome. Thanks for the encouragement, advise and friendly attitude.

Warren Patterson

Bob has been fantastic to deal with throughout the process of buying our first home. We were very impressed by his professionalism and integrity. He was protecting the interest of the seller while always being fair to us as buyers. During our search we have walked away from several houses we liked because the salesperson was not transparent or was manipulative. Bob made us feel comfortable and we decided to put our very best offer forward. He kept the communication going all the way and, even after the deal was made, he remained very available and helped us with any question or query that we had. Bob is a nice guy, and an excellent salesperson.

Dianne Julve

Bob and his team are professional, knowledgeable and very helpful. He's very responsive to every query we had no matter how small. We recommend Bob whole-heartedly!

Louis & Marta

Bob is an extremely great and professional and honest person to deal with. His communication skill is absolutely effective and helpful. He is the first salesperson I would highly recommend."

Rui Ma

"Bob and his team were brilliant! From the moment we met Bob at a open home, he had our best interests at heart. We were keen to sell but needed a kick start so he guided us every step of the way. From suggestions of how to maximise the appeal of our property through to getting a great result at auction, we couldn't ask to be paired up with better real estate salesperson. Would absolutely recommend Bob to family and friends!"

Monique & Reuben Harding

Bob Voss is an excellent Barfoot & Thompson salesperson. He was open, honest and transparent throughout the whole process of us buying and selling our house. He is extremely knowledgeable and his expertise and knowledge was just what we needed. I highly recommend him and I have already referred him to my sister. 10/10, thanks Bob , we are very happy clients !! :)

Jeni & Chris - January 2021

"Bob was superb, really thorough and ensured that everything went smoothly right up until settlement. Highly recommended."

Andy & Kayla Kent - November 2020

"Bob is very professional, fair and does what he says he is going to do. We thoroughly recommend Bob."

Robyn & Bruce Brownlee - November 2020

"Bob was extremely professional and helpful during our recent purchase. He has remained available and responsive."

Debbie & Bruce Kissack-Holroyd - November 2020

"If I was to be selling a house again I would call up Bob. I would also recommend him to anyone I knew was looking for an salesperson."

The Estate of Bruce Robert Allpress - September 2020

"Bob. Thanks a million for your wisdom and patience over the sale of our house. We are most grateful for your ability to liaise between us, our daughter, our son and our lawyer to prepare our home for sale. Thank you for making the auction process so interesting and for the happy conclusion. We have been recommending you and Barfoot & Thompson to everyone we know wanting to sell their house."

Many thanks

Elizabeth and David Mourant - August 2020

"Working with Bob was easy. He helped us formulate a good strategy that saw us with a great result. Would highly recommend working with Bob if you're selling."

Matt Vincent - July 2020

"Before using Bob to sell our house, I had very little trust in real estate salespeople. Being a builder by trade I’ve had many dealings with salespeople over the last few years while doing pre-purchase inspections. After using Bob we discovered that he is trustworthy, straight up and great at communicating and we wouldn’t hesitate to use him again or recommend him."

T & N Sutton - July 2020

"Bob was super friendly and great to work with during a difficult time. I'd happily use him again to sell my home."

The Wakeford Family Trust - June 2020

"Bob worked very hard during Covid 19 Lockdown and achieved a good sale. He made the most of a very trying time to sell a house. Can recommend him for any future sales. All the best Bob and thanks for all the extras you achieved with an absent client."

Frank Roach - May 2020

Bob was fantastic to work with in selling our property. He kept us up to date with where the sale was at, kept in touch regards having viewings, and most importantly for us gave an honest appraisal that we were comfortable with. The cherry on the top was he managed to exceed his appraisal with a sale. We would absolutely recommend Bob and his team for anyone looking to sell their property."

Hamish & Jess Congalton - May 2020

"I am very pleased to share my experience of working with Bob Voss. Bob was always professional in his manner, as well as focused and efficient. In the eight days that my house was on the market, he communicated regularly and precisely with me and my family. He was also kind, patient and honest, so it was a pleasure for me and my family to work with him."

Diane Clarke

"Bob was brilliant with the sale of our house. We were also quite impressed by the auction process (which we attended). For us, something that had been quite daunting initially, turned out to be easy!"

Brett Montague

"We chose Bob as we'd met him previously, when we were originally interested in buying. He was professional, friendly, and the only salesperson we met who followed up with us and actively tried to help us find a home. It was these qualities we hoped he'd bring to the sale of our house, and he did not disappoint. The sales process was standard and transparent; Bob was hard-working with good advice and kept us updated with the progress of our sale.
Bob was accurate in his valuation and estimate of our property, suggesting that a short campaign followed by auction was the best way to sell our home. We took this on board and are glad we did - Bob's advice and knowledge was invaluable and ultimately led to a quick sale and a great price for our home. We would definitely recommend him to anyone looking to sell their property. Thanks Bob!"

Brett and Emmy

★★★★★"Bob really listened to our situation for wanting to sell, and was able to advise us on the best steps to take. He helped us get the house ready and present it in the best way possible to sell. We were well-informed on how the auction process would work and Bob made the quick-fire sale an enjoyable experience with a positive result. He was simply brilliant! The biggest benefit to us was his customer service - Bob really put our needs first and communicated well, helping us through each step of the sales process. He followed up on all he said he would, and we believe marketed our house in the best possible way for a great sale price. It was a very busy, short campaign but Bob prepared us well, giving us great advice and ensuring we marketed our property in a way that made it sparkle! We were very pleased to sell our home on auction day and would recommend Bob to anyone selling - he was fantastic."

Helene and Kane

Bob Voss from Browns Bay was professional, extremely efficient and kept us informed every step of the way.

Sue & Steve Moore

"We expected a sale at a good price within a short space of time, and this is what we got. Bob kept us informed with swiftness and good communication every step of the way - he was very straightforward to deal with. On top of this, Bob gave good advice which proved very effective in securing the sale. He was personable and knowledgeable about the market and this, together with his friendly manner and professionalism, means we would thoroughly recommend him."

Sue and Steve

"I'm happy to say that any expectations I had were exceeded, and everything ran smoothly overall. It was good to be able to work with Bob specifically and have someone I knew on board - I felt I could trust his advice."

Lauren Hayward

At our initial meeting with Bob we found him very personable. It was this, coupled with a recommendation from a previous client, that we decided on Bob as our salesperson. He met our expectations with his knowledge, professionalism and his friendliness. We liked the short time-frame from going on the market, to the auction being held. It meant less open-home weekends. This was especially important for us given our hectic schedules. Bob's expertise and people-skills meant he was able find a solution to an issue that was resolved with all parties being happy with the outcome. We were able to leave this in his hands, alleviating the stress on us. Bob kept us informed the whole way through the sales process. He was always available to listen to our concerns and offer advice. Selling your home can be a stressful time, but when you have the right salesperson, it makes a huge difference.

Lyn Furlan

We were hoping for a fast sale on our house as we had already taken possession of another property. Bob Voss understood the type of buyer that would fall in love with our character home. He already knew of a family that was a great fit, and he was right. The house sold quickly and we are very happy that our house has gone to a lovely family. There were a few minor problems that needed attention for the sale to go unconditional. Bob went out of his way to help solve these issues to the satisfaction of both parties. Bob was always helpful, friendly, professional, and informative. A great outcome for us. Thank you Bob.

Glenda Lill

You made the process super easy, and personable. I really appreciate how approachable you have been throughout the entire process, as well as your follow ups. The industry needs more real estate salespeople like you!


Bob Voss did an amazing job at a very difficult task. We had purchased a property with the condition to sell ours within four weeks for a short settlement. We gave Bob the impossible task of selling our house at auction within a two-week period. Bob worked tirelessly to get as many of his contacts through as soon as possible. Low and behold, in a plateauing market, Bob sold out house for 10K above our asking price!

Bob is a fantastic communicator and just a genuinely good person! I would highly recommend Bob to anyone looking to purchase or sell!

Thanks for all your hard work Bob!


We found Bob of great help in looking for a property for us, whilst living in Wellington. We did not feel out-of-sight out-of-mind. He made suggestions for us and when we found a place, he assisted us fully through the purchase with documentation and full frank advice. Bob was easily contacted and always replied. We would happily work with Bob again.

Katie and Mark

Bob was recommended to me by a friend. I can understand why. I was impressed with Bob's professionalism and knowledge of the current market.
His communication was great with daily updates and made the process as stress-free as possible. Bob managed to get me the best deal I could have wished for. He is very trustworthy and I would highly recommend him, should you wish to sell your home.


"I engaged Bob Voss's services after three unsuccessful months with another salesperson. I was struck by Bob's energy, fresh approach and enthusiasm. At a time when I was far from confident of obtaining a sale for my home at an acceptable price, Bob saw the potential of the property, and devised a focused marketing plan before listing it. He expressed a firm conviction that he could sell my home within two weeks: he was wrong, it sold within two days of listing. I would recommend anyone looking for an honest, professional and committed salesperson, to employ Bob's services: I will not hesitate to use his services again in the future."

John B

"Firstly I wanted to say a big thank you to how you looked after us from the first time we met you at the open house. Although our purchase went relatively smoothly - you handled yourself in a very professional manner where no request was too much. At no time did we feel pressure from you and this makes the process so much easier.

Thanks, I know you will be very successful in your career. We certainly will keep you in mind for our next adventure."

Tim Edwards

"We had the pleasure of meeting Bob Voss when he sold our house in Torbay. Despite the selling of a house being a stressful time, I'm pleased to say that Bob made the whole experience a lot more pleasant. He was both professional and courteous to us as clients and to potential buyers.
Thanks Bob for a job well done; we will recommend you to our friends."

Richard & Dawn C

"Once again congrats on selling two homes! You have achieved what both Harcourts and Professionals could not do. Also, thank you very much for your personable and laid back approach - it has been very good to deal with you and I know you will really be an asset to Barfoot & Thompson. Get that sold sign on my board please!!"

Ruth and Dennis Schumann

Bob was very professional. Kept his promises. Told us things straight. And took an interest in us.


Very attentive sales person, Went the extra mile for us. The personal touch by the staff made the sale of our property very smooth transaction as well as obtaining a very suitable result.

DE Edgar

Dealing with Barfoot & Thompson and in particular our salesperson Bob Voss, was a pleasure. Selling and buying houses is extremely stressful and working with Bob during this process was made that much easier. Bob was highly efficient and extremely professional. He consistently kept us updated and informed and worked tirelessly to get the best result for us that he possibly could. Our open homes were managed smoothly and effectively. Bob was organized and prompt at every meeting and we cannot recommend him highly enough. If you want the best go for the best choose Barfoot & Thompson and salepserson Bob Voss.
