About Bruce Holmes
Real estate has been a real passion for me since I bought my first piece of real estate when I was 23 years old - a 550 acre beef farm. I sold the farm three years later and in 1998 joined Barfoot & Thompson Mt Eden where I sold residential and development properties around the Mt Eden/Epsom areas. Negotiating a sale to its conclusion was always a thrill and I was a successful salesperson within the Mt Eden office and consistently ranking in the top 10% within the Company.
In 2006 I progressed into management and was appointed Branch Manager of Barfoot & Thompson's northern most office in Kerikeri. Taking some time-out from the hustle and bustle of city life to enjoy the country lifestyle with my young family, I gained invaluable managerial experience leading a team of successful residential, lifestyle and rural agents as well as establishing a rent roll within the busy Kerikeri office.
In October 2012 it was time for a change and I became Branch Manager of Barfoot & Thompson Onehunga. Onehunga is a great area and like much of Auckland, diverse in cultures and in housing. I have a fantastic team of professional salespeople with expert knowledge and top marketing skills and an energetic, progressive rental team, who are all passionate about the local area.
I am a strong believer in investing in and supporting our local community and Barfoot & Thompson Onehunga are proud supporters of several local schools as well as individual sporting clubs in our area.
