I’m your lifelong local...
When you’re thinking of buying or selling a home in Kerikeri, having a seasoned local to guide you through the process is a great place to start.
I was born into a founding Kerikeri family and have bought, sold, built and renovated five homes in this truly unique part of the world.
My background is people, from managing a childcare facility in the eighties, to an outdoor education for the physically and intellectually challenged (special populations being a keen interest of mine at university), and latterly, the vibrancy of gym life.
I’ve spent the last 25 years developing and managing Kerikeri’s most successful community fitness facility. I’ve formed wide reaching connections through my work, and continue to enjoy the lifelong relationships forged from the trust and good faith I established with my clients.
I know the people, the landscape, and the delightful blend of lifestyle and opportunity that Kerikeri offers.
If you're buying, let’s go house-hunting together! I’d love to help you find that extra special property that feels like home. And if you’re selling, I’m here to listen and ensure we develop a strategy to achieve the best possible result.
In my opinion, the best experiences start from easy conversation, so give me a call.
"Deb from Barfoot & Thompson was fantastic to work with!
She's really passionate about offering great service and worked closely with us to understand what we needed from the journey of selling our property. Even when we were finding it hard to get traction, she stayed positive and committed to making sure we got a result, which we really appreciated.
Thanks again Deb for all your help and we are really happy with the outcome.Matt Bell
My house had already been on the market for some time when Debbie approached me, asking if she could market it. Initially, I was reluctant to put the house with two agencies as I had always believed that sole agency was preferable.
However, from the moment Debbie, and her co-salesperson, Paula, took up the listing, they threw everything into it, more than I could have hoped for. Their diligence and hard work were amazing. They followed up leads to the ends of the earth, and brought back all feedback, ensuring I could present my house at its absolute best. They marketed the house far and wide, going to the extent of putting flyers in letterboxes far out of town. Debbie’s enthusiasm, professionalism and integrity were key to selling my home.
I would not hesitate in recommending Debbie to anyone who is contemplating selling their home. They could not be in better hands.Dale Bell
Thanks for your very professional approach and your exceptional research and knowledge on the property. I haven't experienced that level of support from any salesperson in previous property purchases.R S Clarke ONZM
Deb Klinac marketed our home for sale recently. She was extremely proactive with marketing, contacting prospective buyers and reporting back to us as she had promised. She was a pleasure to deal with and the house was sold very quickly. We would unreservedly recommend Deb to anyone thinking of selling their home.Pete & Raewyn Williams
We have recently been in the market for a new property and had occasion to talk with Barfoot & Thompson. Deb Klinac showed us properties and over a period of two to three weeks spent considerable time discussing the real estate market. We eventually bought a property through Deb and can only say that she was more than helpful, professional and honest without putting any pressure on us. We would have no hesitation in recommending Deb if you are buying or selling real estate.Frederika Strahan
