What my clients say


Diana Cussen and her team have your best interests at heart. They work to a high level of professionalism that shows regardless of what setbacks come their way. They address issues and move on wanting to get top results.



Thank you, Diana Cussen, for your professional and personal approach to the sale of our home. We have an excellent result, selling for full market price at Auction, in just three weeks. Diana was always a pleasure to deal with, making the whole process straightforward and uncomplicated for us. Much appreciated.
Rachelle & Wayne Cresswell


"We were impressed with Diana's friendly and professional manner from when we first met her for a market appraisal of our house. When we decided to go ahead and sell, she seemed the logical choice of agent. As first time sellers we were nervous at the thought of the auction process but Diana reassured us that she would take care of the 'scary bits' and we put our trust in her expertise that this was the best way to sell our property. She was right, other than a few nerves on the day of the auction, the process was almost stress-free - we weren't waiting for offers to come in and we knew the day that our house was going to sell (which it did!). Diana personally attended all of our open homes and kept in regular contact and we really felt that she was working for us as the vendor to achieve the best possible outcome."
Thanks again for all your efforts,
Ilyse and Phillip


As Property Manager of a group portfolio I recently instructed Diana Cussen of Barfoot & Thompson, Pukekohe Branch to list a residential property and sell it on our behalf. I knew the property had its challenges, and I also knew I would be an absentee "vendor" and required an agent I could trust. Diana worked tirelessly and kept me informed as and when developments evolved. It is great to do business with a Real Estate Agent knowing full well our best interests were paramount. I would totally recommend Diana Cussen as a trusted Listing Agent

We recently had the privilege of using Diana Cussen from Barfoot and Thompson, Pukekohe, to sell our home. Diana was an absolute pleasure to deal with. She won us over with her calm, unflappable manner. We needed someone who we could have complete confidence in and someone with the knowledge and experience in the real estate industry that Diana has. From the moment she came to do an appraisal we felt we were in capable hands, and her likeable manner made us feel like we had known her for years. She made what can be a very stressful time a piece of cake. We decided to go with an auction process which we have never had the confidence to do before. It was the perfect option as we had an offer on our property the day after we went live!
We have no hesitation in highly recommending Diana Cussen to anyone thinking of selling their home.
Rosemary & Jeremy de Lautour


"When I decided to sell, I immediately thought of Diana, as I had worked with her several times in the past. I was hoping for a quick sale of my property, and I knew that Diana would be the perfect person to market it for me because of her experience and knowledge of the area. I wasn't disappointed, my home was sold in a couple of weeks, and I was so happy with the support and help that I received from Team Cussen, especially Diana as she went over and above for me to get the result I wanted. I also want to give a special thanks to Rachel, Diana's PA, for the help and guidance she gave me in making sure that all the marketing photos were as good as they could be, and the care and consideration she gave to my little dog.
Thank you Team Cussen, I would happily recommend you to everyone thinking of selling."

Two months ago I met Diana Cussen when I invited her to my home as I was intending to put it on the market. I found Diana a very nice and friendly lady arriving with a lovely gift and beautiful flowers arrived a week later. Diana and her team arranged the sale of my home bringing a steady flow of people to view. Four weeks later my home sold at Auction and once again Diana was very generous putting on some very nice wine and a food platter.
I would definitely use Diana and her team again.
Regards Meryll Woodcock.


We recently sold our home using Team Cussen. Diana, Antony and Lauren were extremely helpful and encouraging, helping us through a problem we had prior to listing our home on the market. This friendliness continued over the 25 days it took to sell, at Pre Auction. We have no hesitation recommending this team particularly, and Barfoot and Thompson generally, to anyone wanting to sell their home.

"Diana Cussen, Pukekohe branch & her team were committed, so professional & I would definitely go through Diana again."
C Vincent


We found Diana brilliant, she listened to what we were looking for when we were buying, which ensured we used her again when selling. Her approach is open, and honest and she matches clients with property which is fantastic. We would definitely use her again and have and would pass on her details to anyone that asked for a fabulous agent. Comment Brilliant, we indicated we were looking to sell and Diana found us a buyer so quickly. We are extremely pleased with her whole approach, the sale was quick and effortless - she knows her client base and knows the area very well. Awesome all round.
Andrew & Bronwyn


A Dash of Magic - A Dollop of Brilliance - That's Diana Cussen!!!
In search of finding our forever New Zealand home, we had invaluable guidance, advice and support from Diana. She is a lovely lady, who is able to be a professional, sincere and genuine person. We can't thank her enough for her time and patience. She has an amazing smile and a warm personality, who literally walked us through many lovely houses until we found our home. Thank you.
Julia & Andrew Ward


Over the past 6 weeks we have sold our most valuable possession, our home. Team Barfoot & Thompson were for us the obvious choice to market our property. Our faith in them, their knowledge and their experience, our home was "on and gone" very quickly.
Although Team Barfoot & Thompson work closely together and pool their talents, it was Diana Cussen who located and guided the purchaser through the whole process.
Diana's assistance has been invaluable, selling and buying is "no walk in the park", we wanted and needed a true professional to assist us and she was Diana Cussen.
Allan


"Hi Di, thank you again for all your help in selling our house yesterday....it has been a real pleasure meeting you... and working with you in the last few months. Right from the start you have kept us in the loop and communicated well, kept us up to date with what is happening with our property on a weekly basis. We are very excited about our final result... thanks to you for everything. We will certainly be recommending Barfoot & Thompson and especially yourself in the Pukekohe area if we know or hear of anyone that needs help in buying or selling a property."

Awe...and thank you for the bottle of Moet as well!!!
Gus & Sally Fepuleai


"Di is a hard working straight forward and honest, she has an infectious cheerful demeanour no matter how difficult the negotiation might be. I trust her advice when reaching a decision to sell or buy."
Neil Wolfgram


"We could not have asked for more. Dianna Cussen, as our real estate agent, was just the best.
She drove us around without reserve showing us property when we didn't really know whether we were looking for a section or a house. The lovely natured lady, who we took to immediately, did eventually, find what we really wanted and instigated the sale. Tenacious is a word that could describe her. We are now, excitedly, looking at building a brand new home.
Thank you Di. Your efforts were tremendous and really appreciated. You will always have an open invitation to our house - once it is completed. Best wishes Di."
Noel Lumsden


"Dear Diana Cussen and Team at Barfoot & Thompson, Pukekohe,
Thank-you ever so much for all your help in doing a great job as sales agent for our home! Every detail was taken care of and the process was a simple one and combined with your absolute positive and friendly professionalism we would gladly recommend Diana Cussen and her team at Barfoot & Thompson as First Choice Sales Agents!"

Kim & Des Gilmore


"I have bought and sold many properties BUT Diana would have to be the most professional, caring and efficient real estate agent I have ever dealt with. The phrase "going the extra mile" has a whole new meaning with Diana. Nothing is any trouble, no matter how busy she is, nothing ever phases her and NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE! Diana is so positive and this reflects in her marketing, personal contact with us and those interested in buying our property. SHE IS A STAR!!!"
Auriol & Roy Rooke


"Diana Cussen listed our property in July 2009 and with her friendly professional attitude everything went according to our expectations with a very good marking plan implemented. Diana kept us informed of who had looked at our property and did a weekend of open homes which were very successful. Diana phoned all those who came through the house and brought several prospective buyers back to view the property for a second time. The property sold within two weeks of being listed and altogether it was an exceptional experience and we would like to thank Diana for her dedication and hard work. It definately was a good move on our part to choose Diana as our agent."
Jan & Nev


"My wife and I dealt with Diana Cussen whom we found to be one of the better realtors we have dealt with over the years, if not the best. Diana is very professional with outstanding people skills and a very likeable nature, which puts her a cut above the rest. I would have no problem in recommending Diana Cussen to my family, friends and business associates and would not hesitate to use her and Barfoot & Thompson's services again."
Grant & Jo Thurgood


"We recently purchased a property through Diana Cussen. From our initial contact Di was extremely helpful, enthusiastic, never pushy and welcomed our four young children on the 'journey' - Di managed our kids with ease and they adored her! Di made it her mission to help find our young family the perfect home and was at all times considerate of our preferences and the qualities we wanted in a home. From first contact to settlement we were completely satisfied. We were being well looked after by Di, she went miles beyond our expectations! Having bought several homes over the years, we would confidently recommend Di as one of the best agents we had worked with - professional with a strong work ethic and most important of all - integrity plus! Our sincere thanks to Di!"
Grant & Lisa Robertson


"Diana Cussen & Rick Hale were fantastic agents to work with when we were selling and buying our house. They were constantly aware of our families needs, and wants and there was no pressure to be quick about purchasing a home. When we finally found our dream home, they did everything they could to help us secure it. We were extremely happy with the fantastic outcome that we received! We would highly recommend them to our friends & family, or anyone looking to buy and sell. We would defiantly deal with Diana and Rick again in the future.
Thanks for the friendly fantastic service that you gave to us both."
A. & K. Kemp


"I have used Barfoot & Thompson Pukekohe for all my real estate needs in Pukekohe for a number of years. As this was the first time I have sold via the Tender process it was great to have agents who made the process as easy as possible. I have been most impressed with Diana & Rick's dedication and felt they took full ownership of the listing which is what I needed. I never had to prompt them for feedback after open home viewing's and they gave me good advice in terms of the marketing and my situation with the tenants who were occupying the home. They are very professional in all their dealings with me and were more than happy to spend the time to show me other properties. They made things as easy and stress free as possible.
We would defiantly recommend Diana & Rick to anyone who is looking for agents who are able to provide results."
P. McKenzie


"I entrusted Diana & Rick with the sale of my property in Pukekohe in April 2010. From our first meeting I felt in total control. They suggested a comprehensive marketing plan which I went with, that cemented our successful result. They listened to my needs and we all knew what we were doing. From signing the listing, to the contract becoming unconditional I was kept totally informed. These guys think outside the box. Their determination to get the job done using good old fashioned ethics, flair, & hard work is what makes them so good at what they do. For a dynamic team with exceptional service that creates great results call Di & Rick."
W. O'Brien


Diana & Rick have been very supportive during the sale of my home at 16F Barnaby Rd and never failed to keep me up to date with any moments regarding the property. Not all sales are straight forward, some are a bit messy, but I can put my hand on my heart and say the understanding and compassion shown during a difficult sale was very important to me but always in a professional and up most manner, keeping private my personal situation at all times. Also during the time my home was for sale I relocated, the distance never seem to alter the the teams enthusiasm at all.
So Di and Rick may you sell lots and lots of house's!!!! as I know your Service!!!!
Kind Regards.
Amanda Lewando
