"May I congratulate Barfoot & Thompson as having two real stars on your team. In the past 20 years I have changed property seven times, in both South and North
Islands. In September 2010 I bought 44 Scott Avenue in Mangere Bridge and successfully sold it again in December 2011. On both occasions I was most fortunate to have the services of Carolyn and Peter Brooks from your office. I have found them to be outstanding real estate salespersons. They really listen to all your requirements and are most generous of their time contacting Council, owners, etc. Carolyn & Peter have a most friendly manner with genuine interest in every detail leading up to the buying and sale of the property. They personally took me to both auctions and were a great support. I have no doubt that they are the best real estate sales team I have found throughout New Zealand.Dr Anne C.
"Carolyn’s enthusiasm and positive approach to any situation astounded me. Nothing was too much bother for her. She communicated with me daily, feedback from Open Homes was always prompt. I could contact her whenever I needed to with any queries. Carolyn is a professional, bright and bubbly personality who must be a very valuable asset to your company and I would most definitely recommend her to anyone I know who was in need of a real estate salesperson.
I was fortunate enough to be involved with Peter Brooks as well during the sale of my home and found together that they were a caring and kind duo."
"I met with a number of Agents prior to putting the flat on the market. I chose Carolyn because she was so pleasant and positive and saw the flat exactly as it was – a flat with huge potential and badly in need of a makeover. She was also very patient waiting till I got my act together and had the flat ready for marketing. Carolyn’s service was exceptional. Being a property in a highly desirable area she fielded many phone calls. Open Homes were extremely busy and resulted in a lot of follow up work, and taking people for a second look around. Peter, as her colleague, was very busy showing builders and valuers through the property during the week. Together they worked very hard and nothing was too much trouble. Carolyn kept me informed all the time. I was very delighted with the price we achieved on Auction Day and was extremely impressed with David Johnstone, the Auctioneer and his skill in auctioneering. Carolyn & Peter were both friendly and extremely easy to work with. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone looking for two very dedicated and hard working real estate professionals.'
"Carolyn is a wonderful person who supported us through what was an emotional roller coaster. She is caring and sincere working above and beyond expectations. She worked hard for us to achieve the best price for our property which being leasehold was not an easy task. If you want a salesperson, who is caring, trustworthy and professional you need to have Carolyn, she is one out of the box! Thanks to Carolyn & Peter – what a team!"

“We chose Carolyn Brooks to market and sell our home of 37 years. We had met Carolyn at an open home in Mt Albert Road. She really impressed us with her integrity and enthusiasm so without hesitation we decided to get Carolyn to sell our home. It was a really good choice. Our house was marketed very professionally and Carolyn was always available to answer all our questions and was very kind and generous with her time. The house sold for a great price. We have no hesitation in recommending Carolyn as an excellent real estate salesperson.”J. & R. Ferguson
“We met Carolyn at an open home and had discussed our plan to market our home in October/November. Carolyn phoned occasionally offering advice and motivation, but never pressuring us. In summary, Carolyn was extremely professional, honest, enthusiastic and passionate in her work. She was kind and understanding at a time that can be emotional and stressful. As vendors we felt every confidence that she was working to get us a far and honest result, yet also being mindful of assisting buyers successfully make what is one of the biggest purchases one makes in a lifetime. We had a very successful pre-auction sales result. We have already recommended Carolyn to friends and neighbours wanting to sell and would be happy to recommend her to anyone else in the future.” D. & E. Mason
“Carolyn took over selling our home for us in Campbell Road, Royal Oak. She arranged open homes to suit and was always bright and encouraging to us and nothing was a bother. She was always positive and professional from the outset. Once our house was sold she went all out to find us the house we would be happy to purchase, which was not an easy task for her, but no matter where the house was, she was willing to take us to look it over at a time to suit us. Not only did she find us a house, but went the extra mile in helping us to organise the other bits and pieces that enabled us to purchase the property. We would not hesitate to use or recommend the services of Carolyn when selling or buying again.” D. & T. O'Driscoll
