In the competitive world of real estate, cool and calm rules the day. As a stand out property professional I have the credentials to cut it with the best, and the ability to put the “real” back into real estate. I am a straight-talking, hard-working perfectionist and I bring an intelligent and intuitive approach to all property dealings. I have won acclaim within the industry for my deal-making abilities. I am experienced, and comfortable shouldering the inevitable stresses that come with the territory, so that my clients can relax – safe in the knowledge that no stone is left unturned in the pursuit of a result. And not just any result, but the optimum possible in any given market for any given property.
"It’s not often that you feel that you have had such good service out of anyone that you have no choice but to write them a glowing reference. This is one of those times.
Whoever I chose to market my property had to understand that cool 1970's concrete look and use that to their advantage. The real-estate market currently is soft as the economy slows and I was fully prepared to rent this apartment out if no suitable purchase price was presented. In my mind this was not an easy sales task and Cheryl stood up to that challenge perfectly.
In summary I found Cheryl originally presented her ideas well and always had a strong vision for the project. She is excellently organised and I had no hesitation in accepting her suggestions to market this property. To say that she turned over every rock and every stone looking for the buyer is an understatement. She threw everything at it and I was excited by her enthusiasm and energy. This lady will go far in this industry, I’m certain of that. Looking back, there is not one of her ideas to market this property that I can say was not money well spent.
Lastly, I can say that I was positively surprised how well the Barfoot & Thompson network created additional potential buyers for me. I had always envisaged that real estate salespeople work their own patch under the brand. This was not the case here as Cheryl actively engaged with other salespeople to support the eventual sale.
My sales project with Cheryl was a complete success and I would have no hesitation in using Cheryl to market my next project."Jeff Excell - Epsom 2020
"NPS Score: 9
Had a couple of really good salespeople in Cheryl Martin and Kelly Zhang.
Cheryl, thank you so much for your efforts with the sale of my property in Sandringham. You really made the process stress-free for me, you showed the passion, dedication and commitment I've not found in my previous experiences with real estate salespeople. You really went the extra yard in dealing with a quite demanding purchaser and were fair to all parties. I really appreciate the efforts you went to right up to settlement date. Thank you."Greg Cairns- Sandringham 2020
"NPS 10/10 Cheryl was incredible, totally went above and beyond what we had expected. She marketed our property at a difficult time, she was astute with the marketing and negotiations with buyers, and achieved an outstanding success for our family. Highly recommend."Daniel and Family - Sandringham 2020
Cheryl Martin was exceptional. She warrants the 10-rating given for Barfoot & Thompson. We are based in Dubai and not being able to see each other, did not impede on her service delivery. Her information was regular and detailed, as I always like. She made herself available to chat even with the time differences. She always had good suggestions to work around any hurdles. She took away a lot of the noise and filtered the right information to make the process smooth. What I appreciated the most was that she would send reminders on anything outstanding so that no deadlines were missed.Andrew & Victoria - 2019
"Cheryl worked incredibly hard to get us the best price for our property in Mt Albert. She was the consummate professional and kept us thoroughly informed and updated throughout the whole process. We would not hesitate to deal with Cheryl again and highly recommend her. Thanks so much Cheryl for your dedicated hard work."Megan and Jarred Sandringham 2019
Thank you for the fantastic job you have done for us lately. Your hard work and dedication has really helped us during a difficult time. We just wanted to make sure that you know how much you are valued and appreciated especially after our terrible experience with another firm.
Please convey our thanks to Peter Thompson at Barfoot & Thompson for the great job you have done for us.
"I appreciate the quality service Cheryl provided. An astute agent!"P Batchelor - Mt Eden 2019
Over the past two years we have worked with Cheryl both as a buyer and a seller. She has met our various informational requests fully and promptly at all stages of the purchase process, including after settlement. With respect to the property we have recently sold, we found her professional judgment spot-on. Her well-targeted marketing campaign brought about a very successful outcome for us. Cheryl is very focussed, sincere, and hard-working, and an excellent communicator. Our experience is that Cheryl goes the extra mile to make possible a sale for her clients and a happy result for those who are purchasing. We look forward to doing business with Cheryl again in the future.Rachel Harward and John Raines - Mt Eden 2019
The amazing efforts of Cheryl Martin. We have transacted house deals three times in the last 18 months with Cheryl Martin at Barfoot & Thompson and every time we have had a fantastic experience. Highly professional and super thorough. Unreserved recommendation for Cheryl.Jonathon & Ruth - Epsom 2018
We have recently completed the sale a property with Cheryl and Kelly. The entire transaction was as smooth as glass and they only made the entire process easier. There manner and communication were first class. Both Cheryl and Kelly went well above and beyond the call of duty in what was a difficult situation. We could not be happier with the outcome and would not hesitate to deal with them again. I cannot recommend them highly enough. Thanks again for all your wonderful service Cheryl.Ellery Family - Epsom - 2018
My agent Cheryl Martin was absolutely fantastic.
Cheryl went far beyond the call of duty for me. She organised everything extremely well and kept me in touch with what was happening all the time. She acted like a good friend,
Cheryl your work with the telephone bidder in getting them to "hang in the race" and continue to bid was magnificent. Also your preparatory work in getting interested buyers to the auction was, as usual, excellent. The combined effort of you and the Auctioneer was brilliant, and enabling my "on the floor" decision to amend the reserve resulted in a great outcome.Thanks from me and if the clientsWayne Thompson - Mt Eden
Many thanks for your work done so well. If Barfoot's hand out the customary bottle of bubbles on a successful sale, we would like you to have it. Thank you so much, you made a very difficult situation easy. Best regards and good luck in the year of the dog.Rene & Leslie Den Harder - Mt Eden
A business is made up of people, and the folks that we were lucky enough to deal with at the Mt Eden branch have been second to none. Very capable and professional staff in both sales and lettings departments. Specifically, Cheryl was incredible - we couldn't have made the purchase without her.Jonathan & Ruth Downes
"We just wanted to send you a note of thanks for your help in selling our home today.
We were pleased that you were able to explain the negotiation process and represent us in the transfer of the paperwork to the other agent who was with the vendors in another part of our home.
We are so very pleased that you have been in our corner throughout the entire marketing and sale process."
Thanks very much for your hard work, it's been a pleasure working with you. I would love to recommend you to my family members and friends for further business opportunities.Sherry Wang - Kingsland

The process was very new to me so I appreciate your approachable manner and that you took the time you took to explain everything that was happening keeping it as stress-free as possible. We are very happy with the result."Fiona Burns
Thanks for the good work on the sale of our home.
The advertising and good efforts before the auction has produced a very good result for the estate.
Choosing Cheryl was the best decision we could have possibly made, she worked with passion and incredible determination. We could not have asked for higher commitment to selling our house, we felt like we were No1 priority at all times with all the helpful tips, visits and feedback. We genuinely believe we got top dollar in selling the house because of your dedication."Kyla & Grant Covic

I believe that Cheryl treated potential buyers with respect and patience while never losing sight of the goal of delivering a great result for me."Christine Harper
This is a real estate agent that has great instinct and goes the extra mile for her clients and makes everything feel seamless. Cheryl sold our house and helped us find our new lovely home. Her attention to detail is excellent. She is an absolute pleasure to deal with."Jodie Rimmer
The marketing plan and method of sale were bang on for the housing market and the Xmas season, and in the end we were very impressed with such a quick sale at a fantastic price. Our success was obviously due to your amazing ability to build relationships."Michelle and Dave Nixon
Just wanted to say thanks for the outstanding service I received from you during the sales process. I have been involved with a number of real estate agents over the years and your professionalism, experience and dedication has really stood out. I look forward to doing business with you again in the future."Jeremy Wild
I wanted to express my absolute satisfaction with the performance of Cheryl Martin with the marketing and sale of my property. The number of buyers who visited my property was phenomenal, resulting in it being sold for significantly more than I had ever expected."Elwyn Rogers
Having recently sold my first property I am happy to recommend Cheryl Martin. During the process Cheryl exceeded my expectations. Her reliability, excellent communication and knowledge of the market reduced the stress that can be associated with selling a home. Nothing was too much trouble; Cheryl understood how to present my property in a way that emphasised its appeal. I enjoyed working with Cheryl and look forward to working with her again in the future."Kirsten Cathels
Cheryl helpfully explained and took care of the complete process. On Auction day on site, Cheryl's hard work was revealed - a garden full of buyers. We were so impressed with Cheryl; her professionalism, her kindness and helpfulness throughout the campaign. Such a professional, we highly recommend Cheryl Martin."William and Maude Martin
I found Cheryl very easy to talk to, she has a way about her that made us feel at ease. She is straight up with clear boundaries, which I appreciate, but she also has a natural warmth and respect that I have not come across in a real estate agent before. She is not pushy or fake and she has an ability to really listen and understand clients and their needs in a way that made me feel safe. Her good humour and patience served us well, but most of all her attentiveness to our needs at such a stressful time in our lives was most impressive. Cheryl sold our house and helped us find our new lovely home. Her attention to detail is excellent. She is an absolute pleasure to deal with."Tim Riley
We were thrilled with the entire house selling process and the final results you achieved on our behalf. The marketing plan and method of sale were bang on for the housing market and we are very impressed with such a fantastic price. Our success was obviously due to your amazing ability to build relationships."Michelle and Dave
I would like to thank you so very much for your professional, committed and extremely friendly assistance in our search for our new family home. Your awareness to our needs and wants never seemed to wane and your constant updates without pestering were very well received by both Matthew and I. You will be the first person we are in touch with once we are ready to move on!"Callie and Matt Fell
We wanted to say thanks for the outstanding service you provided to us with our recent purchase. Having had a few property transactions under our belts with our investments, we were impressed with your friendly, courteous assistance. You were great to deal with and would always get back to us when you promised. During the negotiation phases, you never pressured us or expressed exasperation, remaining professional and going the extra distance. You made what is normally a trying and tedious process flow smoothly and were always accommodating to our requirements."Matt Mckenna and Stefan Hansen
I had a great fear of real estate agents and had found many of them really quite annoying in the past.
Cheryl was completely different. She understood how I felt about my house and was absolutely respectful of me and the process the whole time. She had me completely at ease the whole way through. She knew it was the first time I'd sold a property and she talked me through the process really well. She was quick, reliable, efficient, positive and personable. She has completely changed my view of real estate agents and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone selling.
She was great. I feel really lucky to have worked with her.
Cheryl's service was professional, efficient and a joy to work through a difficult process. She made it very
easy for us and has excellent skills to manage the buyers and tenants alike.
We can not recommend her highly enough. Thanks for making it so easy for us.
Cheryl was hardworking, always available, always kept me informed , friendly, approachable ,positive and
provided a stress free experience. I thoroughly recommend Cheryl and Barfoot & Thompson.
We observed a really strong work ethic combined with positive salesmanship. We had just spent 3 yrs searching for a new home. During this time we had come to recognise many agents and gain an awareness of what supported or hindered the sale of properties. Cheryl came recommended by her manager. Her skills were what I was asking for:
- Someone with a clear understanding of how to show a property to it's best advantage and willing to
communicate improvement tasks' to the owners in order to make this happen. We were very blessed that
she did this graciously but to the point.
- . . she appreciated our cat and was professional in every aspect
We particularly appreciated Cheryl's skills at house dressing. Cheryl was able to tweak our interior so that
it was transformed with very few changes into a 'show home'.
