What my clients say

“Carolynn Van de Ven has been absolutely exceptional. She has managed our expectations as landlords extremely well and delivers a service that is next to none. We couldn't be any more confident in Barfoot & Thompson Onehunga handling the management of our home because of her. We love Carolynn."



The most significant benefit of working with Barfoot & Thompson Onehunga has been my peace of mind. As an absentee landlord I need attentiveness and responsiveness from my property managers, especially when issues arise. This is what Carolynn van de Ven and Max Cameron have consistently provided. The quality of quarterly reporting is excellent too, as it provides photographic evidence of the state of the property. I would certainly recommend Barfoot & Thompson Onehunga property management.

Tony & Debbie

Because of their management I have no stress and if anything needs doing, I am informed prior (as per my request). They are a good team. A great rental team who keep you informed on all matters and take the stress out of dealing with tenants, whilst keeping a good eye on your property.

John & Linda Wade

I have found Barfoot & Thompson Property Management staff at Onehunga to be great. They are easily accessible, someone always picks up the phone, emails are answered and requests are quickly addressed. Our tenants and I are both happy with the services provided.

Dev Tandon

"I wanted to send a note to say a special thank you to Barfoot & Thompson Onehunga who managed my property for the last two years. This property has now been sold.

I have dealt with Carolynn, Max and Dianna and they have been absolutely outstanding. We were dealing with a difficult tenant in regard to payment and through the sale process, she was particularly difficult. The service I received from all three was amazing. They were helpful, empathetic and made it so much easier and less stressful for me.

I would absolutely recommend Barfoot & Thompson Onehunga to other landlords and I would like to send a special thank you to these three as I have really enjoyed working with them. They have done an amazing job for me. I am not sure if you have a recognition programme in place, but they deserve medals for dealing with this particular tenant."
