My goal in real estate is to provide the very best service for each and every one of my clients. Every week my database of clients, looking to secure their next home, grows. If you are selling, my marketing skills will see your property promoted to the wider Barfoot & Thompson market network where any one of the company’s 1,500+ salespeople can introduce buyers and share information on any property that is listed.
From when I was very young, I’d heard about Barfoot & Thompson. I feel proud to work for such a professional and friendly, family-orientated company. Barfoot & Thompson is at the forefront of technology-led solutions, demonstrated in their strong commitment to developing, enhancing and investing in new cutting-edge tools for their staff. This forward thinking approach leads to increased productivity and a sense of pride from employees as they feel empowered to deliver outstanding client service.
I completed a Certificate in Automotive and Mechanical Engineering and initially worked as a mechanic. I then moved on to manage a local business in Devonport for three years, where my eye for detail, dynamic energy and unmatched negotiating skills, set me apart from my competitors.
I was born and raised in Devonport and have lived in the same house with my extended family for as long as I can remember. My family have owned a local business for almost 30 years which has been great exposure for me and also a great way to get to know the area. If something is happening in the neighbourhood, I’ll know about it. Attending the local school, and playing rugby and cricket at the local clubs, added to my many friends and connections and gave me a real sense of belonging.
Something I really enjoy is catching up with my friends whenever I get the time. As a teenager, I loved to surf, skate, snowboard, play rugby and cricket and more. Basically I love the outdoors and being active.
In addition to English I am fluent in Gujarati, Fiji Hindi and Hindi. Call me to discuss what options you have in today’s marketplace. You might be pleasantly surprised!
“Darshan was very helpful and very professional. We were looking to buy our first family home in New Zealand and Darshan was very accommodating in letting us know about the property we were most interested in, facilitating multiple visits and viewings and keeping us informed. He stayed connected with us giving regular updates and offering help, particularly with the pre-auction and post auction paperwork and negotiations with the seller, that were crucial to our successful purchase. We were fully supported by Darshan in terms of explaining the process and being on hand for any questions. We would highly recommend him to anyone wanting to buy or sell.”Stewart S & Kylie G
“We have known Darshan and his family for many years. He is a Devonport local and knows the real estate market very well.
Darshan was fantastic to work with, professional and capable. He took over the sale of our property after another company failed to sell it and did an incredible job at digital marketing and networking to bring a huge number of potential buyers to our open homes. What Darshan did differently was to actively network with other salespeople, broaden the base of potential buyers that saw the property through his spectacular digital and print marketing and communicate incredibly well with those buyers and us.
The marketing plan and execution was first-rate and really good value. We had multiple offers and Darshan negotiated very well with the buyers to get us a good price in a very difficult time in the market.
I would not hesitate to use Darshan again or to recommend him to others looking to buy or sell their home.”Stephen & Catherine, Vauxhall Road
