About Dave Purcell
What attracted me to real estate was the opportunity to not only meet new people, but to help and give service to those who are undertaking a huge decision, whether it be buying or selling property. I have worked and had great success in previous sales, account management and customer service roles in the past, and I enjoy interacting with people from all walks of life. I have a knack for solving issues and I take great pleasure at making processes easier.
Barfoot & Thompson was my company of choice for their dominance of the Auckland market and their instantly recognizable brand. The amount of resources available and the chance to learn from and work alongside experienced salespeople, are what I think will stand me in good stead.
I chose to work at the Manukau Branch, as South Auckland is the place I call home. I've been here all my life and drive through the same streets every day. I know them so well I could probably tell you where the potholes are in the roads. It's also a melting pot of different cultures - the people around here look like me, talk like me and have gone through similar life experiences.
On a personal level, I've been married for 10 years to my beautiful wife Anna and together we have three children; Clara-Louise, Vida-Nancy and Gerard. I live in Papatoetoe where I have been for the last 11 years (must be time to move) and I am of Samoan descent.
For those looking for assistance to buy or sell property in South Auckland please feel free to give me a call. I know I have the skills to make any transaction a great customer experience for those involved...Just ask for Big Dave, at Barfoot & Thompson Manukau.
