About Dev Joshi

Michelle Obama once said, "Success isn't about how much money you make; it's about the difference you make in people's lives." Real estate is one of those unique industries where you can touch people's lives in a positive way every day. And that's exactly what I'm here to do.

Prior to working in real estate, I gained a Bachelors in Commerce (Honours) and a Post Graduate Diploma in Business Management. I then went on to spend the next 16 years in customer service and hospitality fields.

My background makes me an expert in the art of dealing with people. I'm easy to approach and can work with anyone, and I pride myself on being able to think on my feet, think outside the square and problem-solve tricky situations quickly and effectively.

At the heart of my service is a genuine desire to help people. I take time to listen and understand your needs, and always provide a completely personalised and honest service. I'm committed, trustworthy and proactively communicate and follow up throughout all stages of the buying and selling process.

Throughout my life, I've found that my proudest moments are always those where there was a certain element of the unknown or fear. Things like moving to New Zealand with my beautiful family and making it a home, starting up a business with my wife, and conquering my biggest fear of heights by tandem skydiving.

Real estate is that next great leap of faith. But I hold firm to the saying, "you can achieve anything if you put your mind to it," and I know that with hard work, determination, and the right attitude, I can conquer this dream too.

Manukau is the heart of South Auckland, with its vibrant multicultural community and its huge growth and development potential. It's not just your home, it's my home too. Give me a call today and let's turn your real estate dream into a reality.

What my clients say

"Firstly, thank you for all the hard work you provided during the sale of our house. You guys are outstanding professionals with a high degree of perfection and execution.

I feel it's not about buying and selling houses in excellent market conditions. It's all about how you are balanced in the challenging housing market environment and render outstanding service to your clients.

We started to interview a few service providers for our housing needs. We chose Anju and Dev as our representatives. When we listed our property, the housing market was not as smooth as we thought and plummeted. We realised that it was not a great time to list, but we were determined to go ahead with great support from Team DNA. They supported us from the beginning of the staging process with precision until the house was sold at the expected price. Even after the house was sold, they still went out of their way to help us. I would recommend them wholeheartedly to any of my friends and family members to experience a stress-free process."

Madhu & Dr Obli raj oblisamy - Mission Heights, Flat Bush

"It was a smooth and enjoyable sale and purchase experience, with Team DNA. Their strategy is very professional and genial at the same time. We never had any worries of selling our property at a good price nor buying our new home with good timing at a reasonable price as well. We never would have done the deals without their sound advice and hard work. We commend them. Their determination to help us achieve our goal was paramount. We also appreciate their constant support and care for our family. It was like we have known them for a long time because of the way they worked with us - like family. Highly recommended!"

Ellen & Ryan Regala - Flat Bush

"Thank you to Team DNA. Anju and Dev were amazing to work with. We were kept up to date with the process of selling our house and purchasing our new one with this dynamic team. I highly recommend them to everyone and anyone looking for professional real estate salespeople. They provided an amazing experience for our family."

Margaret Karanga & James - Weymouth

"Dev & Anju. Thank you so much for all of the hard work! We are so happy and grateful that everything worked out!!! Highly recommend. A perfect team. Thanks again Team DNA."

Sanaz Hadarig & George - Wiri

"Sold our house for a good price. Hard working couple. All the very best for your journey."

Dinithi & Gayan Gunawardena - Wiri

"Team DNA has become like family to us. They helped us purchase our first home and also sell our first home too. They helped us purchase our second home and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience while viewing homes together and getting the best advice and information from them regarding the current housing market. Their energy and enthusiasm is contagious and we were very happy to have friends like them help us find our dream home so thank you Team DNA...forever grateful!"

Davina Kumari & Shane - Papatoetoe

"From our first meeting with Dev & Anju, we were instantly met with warmth, enthusiasm and willingness to guide us and share knowledge with us. Putting our first home on the market was a bit daunting for us, but Team DnA took all the stress out of selling. Their dedication and hard work constantly shines through and results speak for themselves with an exceptional sale price, even in a time where the market appeared to be slowing. It felt to us like they were selling a home they loved, just as much as we, the owners, loved it. Their communication was great along with their help to navigate the entire process, but they also listened to us and helped us to make the best informed decisions. Dev & Anju, Team DNA - street record breakers twice in a row, now beating their own previous street record! 🙏🥳

Not only were we extremely happy with the sale of our property through Team DNA, they also helped us to purchase our next property - a property that ticked all our boxes, and our first ever time bidding at an auction and we were successful with the help of Dev & Anju!

We still can't believe how lucky we are, we are so grateful and thankful for Dev & Anju's time & help dedicated to us as happy vendors & purchasers.

We would 10,000% recommend Team DNA to anyone looking to buy and sell their next home! Thanks again Dev & Anju 🤩"

Rebecca & Brandon - Takanini


Team DNA are amazingly professional and extremely enthusiastic!

There’s no way to thank Dev and Anju enough for their hard work and dedication.

As a first time seller and single income homeowner I found the whole process to be completely stress-free and uncomplicated thanks to team DNA. They are very easy to deal with and are always honest in their opinions and with any answers to the many questions I had.

From the way they dealt with the Lockdown rules and booking viewings to getting a sale on auction day and everything in between was very well organised, very professional and stress-free.

Thanks again Dev and Anju, go team DNA!

Glenn - Avis Avenue, Papatoetoe

My family and I would like to sincerely thank Dev and Anju (The DNA team from Barfoot & Thompson) for the extreme efforts made in selling our property located in Flat Bush recently. We recommend the team to any individual or family planning to sell or buy a property.

We found the DNA team to be highly attentive salespeople, almost as if we were their only customers, although we knew that was not the case. They treated us like members of their family or friends. The communication was excellent and they kept us updated all the way whether it was about the process of sale or any major to minor communication that we needed to know. They returned all phone calls. SMS messages & emails the same day. We never felt neglected or unimportant.

Team DNA helped us to prepare and guide how the house would look great in the eyes of potential buyers and their advice worked like a charm. They worked tirelessly during lockdowns with virtual viewings and kept on showing my property in Level 3 Lockdown too. They are also highly personable with an engaging personality and have an impressively huge buyer database.

Personally I admire the trustworthiness, friendly and humble manners they presented, this honestly made me feel comfortable, and stress-free. The team is a master of contract negotiations and managed to sell our home for a very good price, especially in the current market situation.

We are so pleased with the DNA team and highly recommend anyone looking to buy or sell a home. They are hands-down the best in the business in our opinion and if we ever need to move again, they would be our first choice as real estate salespeople.

El Saleh Family

"Anju and Dev, Team DNA! Wow! These two are really amazing at what they do.

From the get-go, they showed us their enthusiasm and also made us feel confident that we were making the right decision. Being first time property vendors, they guided us throughout, making sure that we understood the process. The best part of it was the fact that they removed the pressure and stress away from us which allowed us to really enjoy the experience.

Also, communication was never an issue. Through the entire process, they consistently made sure that we were aware of everything that was happening. What really impressed us was the fact that they managed to pull-off this feat at the height of COVID-19 Level 4 lockdown. which is truly remarkable to say the least. It just goes to show the dedication and pride they put into their work to make things possible.

Both of them are cheerful and possess an easy-going personality which allowed us to easily make a connection with them, not as clients but as friends. In the end, we feel truly lucky and at the same time very grateful to have worked with Anju & Dev, Team DNA, to achieve this milestone.

We give them a PERFECT 10 for this wonderful experience and would surely recommend them to anyone who is considering making their next move. Kudos Team DNA! Much love from Dapilan Family

Leonor & Marco Dapilan - Takanini

"What an amazing journey this has been. Full of different emotions and learnings along the way. When we started the process of selling our house we did not know who to turn to. But when we met Dev and Anju they were very thorough about what they could offer to help with this process and secure the best price for our lovely home. They also supported us in finding a new place to call home. We really appreciated how hands-on Dev and Anju were and loved the way they bounced off each other throughout our meetings. Even during this current Lockdown, they have been working tirelessly behind the scenes to gather the interested parties before our auction date. Dev and Anju, we thank you for everything you have done for us and we will definitely seek your services again if we choose to sell or buy again and would  recommend you to family and friends!!! We trusted you to help us and we are 100% glad we did!!! 

God bless you both and your family!"

Margaret & James - Weymouth

"Wow what can I say..Dev & Anju Team DNA!! Thank you so much for the exceptionally hard work and commitment you both have done in getting my property on the market in auction and sold in just less than a month and came out with very good results. 

To be honest, before I met you both I was a bit sceptical dealing with property salespeople, no offence, but you two have shone the light for me. It just shows how committed you both are in helping achieve what’s best for your clients and you do so professionally. I highly recommend you to families and friends and anyone out there looking at selling or buying. It is in your “DNA”. I commend you both. Keep working stronger together. Thank you once again from all of us."

Apii & Teina - Weymouth

"We've never seen anyone who is as hardworking and as passionate as Team DNA. They are well-versed and know the technicalities of the business, and most importantly, they put their clients' interest first. This is the reason why they immediately earned our trust.

We were caught at a bad time when we first put our house on the market. It was the time that the market was starting to slow down in Takanini and it was too late for us to back out. To be honest, we didn't think that we would be able to sell the house even at a reasonable price. We were very skeptical, we worried a lot and at times disheartened. But thankfully, we were so glad that we trusted Team DNA because they pulled off the unexpected, and in a short amount of time.

We were very lucky that we got to know this couple. We highly recommend them!

Thank you Team DNA! You guys are the best. 😀 "

Roz & Glen Guarin

"Dev and Anju are an excellent team that exceeded our expectations by doing a house swap which is a complex ordeal. They helped us every step of the way, from marketing our existing property for sale and securing a good deal on a house that met our family's needs. Very responsive and even discussed an offer till 10:30 at night and Dev still did this with a smile. Specialising in south/East Auckland, their local knowledge, passion and marketing expertise really shines through when compared with other salespeople. Comprehensive marketing to ensure widest reach and detailed planning, we would highly recommend to anyone to have a chat to see for yourself, they will show you they really know their stuff."

Ada & Jamie Huang

"Thank you Team DNA, for helping us find our perfect family home and for all your hard work! 😃"

Benita & Sanjay Prasad

"Before meeting team DNA, we were very skeptical of real estate salespeople. After working with Dev and Anju, I can safely say that there are still some gems left in the business. They are honest, ethical and truly professional. Keep up the good work guys and be the beacon of hope that you are in the otherwise murkier world. Look forward to working with you again."

Ranshu & Nitin Joshi

"Team DNA is a very hardworking and honest team. If you are looking for a house which meets all your requirements and want your dream to come true, then contact team DNA, because we got what we were looking for. Thanks, you guys rock 🤗🤗🙏🙏"

Veerpal Sandhu

"Just bought our first home with team DNA and just recently moved in. We're happy and thankful that they helped us all the way through the process."

Juvelyn Bocoran

"Team DNA Dev and Anju were very easy to deal with, great communication and they made things happen. So professional, polite as always, happy to help with any queries at all. My whole experience with Team DNA has been excellent from start to finish. I would highly recommend it to anyone and will definitely be using their services again in the future. A massive thank you Dev."

Robin Bal

"I thank God for introducing us to this genuine couple, Dev and Anju. They share their life experience which gives us the confidence to take bold decisions fearlessly as the concept gets clearer.

Dev is always there to help us clear all our doubts and guide us in the right way. Having them around us to buy our first home was a great experience and they made it so easy for us 😀.

We highly recommend Team DNA for a hassle-free home buying experience."

Venet & John Somanmardi

"My partner and I just bought our first house, and Dev and Anju were the salespeople we dealt with. Dev was very helpful and efficient when we asked questions, and went out of his way to make sure we were looked after very well. We would definitely recommend Team DNA if you are looking to buy a new home. Thanks so much guys! 🤗"

Danielle Commerer & Tim

"Thankyou Team DNA!! We would be very happy to work with these two again. Such wonderful people who made the process of buying a house for the very first time, fantastic! We've stayed in touch and they're still as helpful as ever even four months after the sale 😀"

Sherryn Tai & Tevita

"Awesome work by Dev and Anju and special thanks to them for helping us in buying our first house. They were really helpful and kept guiding us about everything. Thank you so much for going out of the way to help us out for the best deal we were looking for. We are so grateful to have you guys on our side. Thanks for looking after us so well and we highly recommend your services to everyone."

Nisha Saini & Harminder

"Dev and Anju were recommended to us by a family member and we feel very blessed to have had them working alongside us on the journey to buying our first home. They were highly professional and really took the time to find out what we were looking for so that they could find the house that best suited us. They truly wanted us to be happy in our forever home and were genuinely excited for us when we found a house that we loved. When we first started, we felt discouraged at times thinking we would never find a place within our budget, but both Dev and Anju kept encouraging us and working towards our goal. They responded to our requests quickly, answered our questions honestly and realistically, kept us informed every step of the way and were wonderful at connecting with our two daughters. Dev even came over at 7am one morning to go through the offer paperwork with us once we found the perfect place. Wonderful teamwork and great ambassadors of the Barfoot & Thompson brand."

Sarah Warfield & David

"Dev and Anju both are amazing. They made our life easier by finding our new home in no time. They were always available to answer our questions and did meetings with us even after hours and late nights to suit our timings. They are very honest with their opinions and we experienced their top professionalism. We will definitely recommend them to others who are looking to sell or to find their new home."

Deepa Pandya & Arpit

"They are both very professional, and very good to deal with. Everything went very smoothly with the sale of our home."

Mary Daley & Tony

"Team DNA assisted us in selling our existing property and buying our new home. They knew exactly what a buyer looks for and helped us to dress our property for open houses. They went above and beyond to arrange viewings for potential buyers, extended open house timings and even door-knocked to advertise our property! When it came to buying from them, they helped us figure out exactly what we were looking for within our price point, before we fully understood it ourselves. Dev and Anju walked through houses and evaluated them alongside us, educating us on what to look for and consider to ensure we were purchasing a solid, problem-free home. Their assistance didn't stop there - they also helped us negotiate the price and connected all the dots for us from pre-approval to lawyer signing to key hand-over. What could have felt like a very stressful purchase was made to feel smooth and "right", and my husband and I are so thankful for Dev and Anju's level of expertise and service to make it happen. The finishing touch of a thoughtful welcome gift when we got the keys was also greatly appreciated.

Thanks Team DNA. If we're ever on the market again, we'll be coming back to you 🙂"

Priyanka & Savio

"Dev is a honest reliable and hard working man. I really appreciate the patience he has. My mother, sister and I were very particular in our choice of house and so we went through so many houses before we finally found the right one. And Dev was with us in every step of the way. He guided us through our choices, he never rushed us when viewing houses and he allowed for house viewing at basically any time of the day mornings, afternoons and nights. The amount of houses we must have went through and Dev did not complain once in fact he was motivated. I believe for Dev that this isn't just a Job for him and his number one priority is making his customers happy. He works day in and out for his customers and his hard work and sacrifices does not go to waste. Thank you Dev you really helped my Mum a lot and put a genuine smile on her face. My mother is happy!!!
Your service was absolutely great, thank you for educating us on the features of the house. Dev also went beyond our expectations and presented us with a house warming gift that we will be hanging on our wall. Thank you very much Dev for your time, your service and your genuine approach in finding us our dream home. God bless to you Dev and your family."

Renu, Kamal & Goldie Gherra

Home selling and buying is incredibly stressful! Thankfully, we had a great team at Barfoot & Thompson Real Estate to walk us through the process and make our experience as stress-free as possible. Before we listed, their staging expert helped us to make our home show worthy. Their professional photographer took amazing photos for the listing. Our home was priced just right for the market. All of this preparation helped us to sell quickly with multiple offers on the first day we listed. Navigating through the closing process was luckily hassle free as well. We always felt like our realtor Dev Joshi had our best interests in mind and we were kept informed about every aspect of the process. Dev is one of the best agents we have ever worked with; he goes beyond any expectation and gets things done. We are very lucky to have him as our realtor. We could not be more pleased Thank you so much, Dev.

Hi I'm Rod Manalo, a Registered Nurse and currently managing two aged-care facility sites here in South Auckland. My property was with another agent from a different organisation for three months and it did not work out..After which, I did not have any second thoughts in choosing Barfoot & Thompson to manage the selling of my property, having been very popular in the market industry. The major contributing factor however is the agent by the name of Dev Joshi, for me nothing compares, he was just very excellent in the performance of his duty, nothing negative was being commented instead he was moving heaven and earth to make things right. and yes he was true to his word, it was like a blink of an eye and we finally see the light. The result was there, Imagine in two weeks time the house was sold out at a reasonable price.. I then realised that the turning point was the hard work and dedication of the agent to give justice to the property. My dear brothers and sisters, when you are planning in selling your property, please don't think twice, call straight away Dev Joshi . My salute to the very best property agent of all time.

Rod Manalo

A very warm thanks to Dev Joshi, it was a pleasure working with Dev. We were fortunate to have you through our journey of searching to buy and selling our property. Certainly a hard working person who was available anytime we needed him. Highly recommended and definitely we will be in touch with you for our future house search. Once again many thanks for your time and support. Best wishes for your future success.

Sainaz & Nasib Ali

Warm thanks, Dev. It was truly a highly commendable performance by selling our property within two weeks!!! It's hard to believe, yet it's true. We would like you to know how much we appreciate your hard work. We are fortunate to have such an energetic, enthusiastic and determined agent whose marketing strategies/tools are indeed impressive. For sure, such performance does not go unnoticed and looking forward to more success in your sales.

Jan & Rod

"Dev sure does an amazing job, after being let down by other agents he came through with a great result. Certainly a hard working guy willing to put in the hours on behalf of his clients with a never say quit attitude. Also managed to work around our hectic lifestyle & timetable & was always friendly and professional. Highly recommended & anything to do with real estate again Dev will be our first call"

Rebecca & Ron

"I am a first home buyer and meeting Dev was like god sent for me. He supported me through out the process, explaining various terms , their implications, dos and don'ts, just like a guide to me, without making me feel ignorant & responded to my calls promptly. He was extremely patient and calm, always smiling, extremely professional in his approach, helped me find a really good house and made the whole transition easy, so i just want to say a big thanks and wish him all the very best in his future endeavours. He has now become more of a friend and i would recommend him any day to any prospective buyer or seller. Dev you Rock"

Sonia & Vikrant

"After 6 months on the market in Flat Bush with an agent from outside the area, Dev very politely dropped in and asked if I would be open to him representing my sale. As all agents tend to do Dev said he had a good number of ready buyers to introduce to my property but he was not kidding.
Within three weeks he had arranged well over ten active buyers and a sale followed quickly. Really enjoyed Dev's openness, keeping me fully informed and enthusiasm and would recommend him to friends. Thanks Dev great job."

Jamie Potter

"Dev has been a really good agent while we have been looking at properties for first home buy. His friendly and positive nature connects you to him immediately. He's very supportive and efficient and gives great advice. I would recommend him to anyone looking at buying a property. Thank you so much for helping us."

Davina & Shane

"Well Dev is the Person who worked smart and helped me to get the right house for us.. He made himself available for us when ever we wanted a advice or were willing to see any property.. There is so much I can easily write about Dev or his service which he provides. In nutshell if you are in market to buy or sell Have a word with Dev"

Anjali & Pankaj

"Thanks heaps Dev for all your help. We are first time home buyers and you have gone out of your way to help us which will never be forgotten."
