I’ve been working in real estate since 1998 and I can honestly say it has been a very happy 24 years. Born and bred in Waiuku, I find the Franklin District is a fabulous place to live and includes inland and coastal settlements such as the Awhitu Peninsula, and the townships of Pukekohe and Waiuku. If you like being near the water, there’s some exciting new builds at Clarks Beach and Glenbrook Beach, right on the edge of the Manukau Harbour.
I love working with people – from first home buyers to elderly clients. My natural empathy for them and their individual circumstances, along with a desire to achieve the very best outcome is what motivates me every day. With every client I have a meticulous routine when it comes to research and marketing and my ability to capture the real essence of a property has led to amazing results.
Often, I meet people and they just want to talk about real estate. I discover what they’re looking for, they go on my database, I keep in touch regularly and in six months’ time, hey presto, I’ve found the property of their dreams! Once met, never forgotten.
I’m proud my real estate career has been with Barfoot & Thompson. At present, the company holds the majority market share for the Franklin district, so listing with me and the team at Waiuku will generate maximum competition for your property sale.
I currently live on the outskirts of Waiuku enjoying a semi-rural lifestyle. Spending time with my children and grandchildren is important to me and in my spare time I enjoy tending my trees and growing my own vegetables and I especially love knitting singlets, beanies and socks for babies. My latest fad is painting with acrylics. Besides canvas, craft acrylics can be used on wooden, metal, fabric and ceramic surfaces. It’s easy to work with and dries very quickly.
As a real estate professional, I commit to developing great relationships and delivering on expectations. Call or email me at Barfoot & Thompson Waiuku. I look forward to showing you around and finding your place in our community.
Deborah and Kim. Thank you for the great job you did in staging our home and the marvelous job you did in getting it sold so quickly. You made selling our home so easy and I appreciate all the care you showed along the way.James - Owner McCall Drive, August 2022
Big thanks to you Deborah. In 40 years, I have never had support from a real estate salesperson as I have from you. It's all working out. I know you'll have your hands full with grandchildren but I very much appreciate all you did, as buyers like this are fragile when they are selling for the time in 40 or so years. Carol said how you trekked over to get a signature from Tuakau. Absolute dedication. I hope we have another dealing without all the dramas and issues.
Who says conveyancing is simple. I am exhausted today, getting it all sorted.Elisabeth Jobbins - Solicitor

Deborah’s interpersonal relationships with both ourselves and potential buyers were warm, honest and attentive. In summary then, Deborah is a consummate professional, a salesperson we were blessed to encounter and whom we now regard as a friend.David & Lyn Hollinger - Vendor, 23 Apr 2021

It seems quite fitting that my last photography session before moving was with Deborah Andrew real estate, who helped us with our first step towards our new life. She sold our home at Glenbrook Beach. Deborah was wonderful to work with; easy to communicate with and empathetic when I got a bit emotional! She comes with our full recommendation if you are looking for a salesperson.Aimee Preston of #unscriptedlovephotography - June 2019
We would say to anyone who is searching for their ideal property, look to real estate agent Deborah Andrew. Deborah has kept us in mind for over six months and notified us on the first day listing of the property we eventually purchased. Deborah understood our want list and this property was everything we were looking for. The communication between we the buyers and the vendors through Deborah was good and thorough. We are happy to recommend Deborah to any future potential buyers and sellers.Rob & Barbara McEldowney - Happy home buyers
We found Deborah Andrew from Barfoot & Thompson to be very easy to work with, gave great advice and was extremely professional and we would not hesitate to recommend her to any prospective buyers and sellers.Neil & Kath Anderson
