Let’s keep it simple... I sell property.
I’m a hard working professional and value the importance of clear, concise communication. I understand the property market and the complex application of promotion for maximum exposure. I’m conscious that I contract to you personally and your interests and benefits are my top priority.
My role is to achieve the best possible outcome for you. I’m very comfortable with negotiating and have proven outcomes to support my skill in this pivotal part of the sales process. I have a professional and enthusiastic approach to representing you and your truly valuable asset. I happily offer guidance support and follow up... understanding a sometimes complex process can be daunting. I’m here to help.
Successfully bringing all these elements together is important in achieving the very best price for your property. There are plenty of buyers out there, but finding the right buyer takes commitment and diligence.
Born into a founding Kerikeri family, I have bought, sold, built and renovated five homes in this unique part of the world. Matching people to property has become my passion. I can offer you a free appraisal, insight into the process, care in application and commitment to deliver. I choose not to leave anything to chance and nor should you!
If you’re looking for someone who puts you and your property first, we should chat. Easy conversation and good coffee is a great place to start. Call me, I know a great cafe!
I engaged Elaine Goodson and Deb Klinac of Kerikeri Barfoot & Thompson to sell my Paihia property in November 2021.
Throughout, I was extremely happy with how the process was handled. Their communication and availability was excellent and I was very pleased to have sold it at auction after a four-week campaign and at a price which exceeded my expectations.
I would not hesitate to recommend these salespeople to any prospective seller.Mirand Pasley
It is an absolute pleasure to furnish this reference for Deb Klinac of Barfoot & Thompson Real Estate Kerikeri.
Deb helped us in the capacity of purchasing a home. She worked diligently and with great enthusiasm throughout the process. Deb is also tenacious, follows through thoroughly, has excellent communication skills and went the extra mile for us.
We have associated with many real estate people over the years but we think Deb stands out as one of the very best, not only a fantastic salesperson but a lovely genuine and honest person.
We would have no hesitation recommending Deb to anyone looking to sell or buy a property.Rick & Veronica Taylor
“Deb and Leigh recently sold our Kerikeri property and we found them extremely professional, punctual and honest. We felt very confident dealing with them. In the past we have had experience with salespeople and there was some miscommunication. Deb and Leigh were very thorough and there were no misunderstandings. We would recommend them to anyone buying or selling and we rate them eleven out of ten.”Sue & Neale Bills
"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
