About Darren Szaszy

I have roughly a decade of real estate experience specialising in lifestyle rural sales.

An Innovative and Modern Approach
My approach to marketing properties is modern and creative, using the latest technology and promotional strategies to sell your home. It's all about reaching the maximum potential buyers in real-time through a range of mediums - YouTube, Facebook and Instagram, to name just a few.

Client Care
Together with professional, innovative marketing, I believe in personal, client-focussed relationships. With a client-centred stress-free approach to selling property, I understand that every client's situation is unique. I will listen to your needs and goals, tailor a personalised selling strategy for you, push to get the best price for your property and above all keep you informed every step of the way.

Understanding Buyers
Today's buyers are more sophisticated than ever, naturally expecting immediate and detailed property information through a variety of media. I meet these expectations by building mutual relationships with buyers and being responsive and proactive with all communication. I always provide comprehensive, up-to-date and relevant information about both your property and the Franklin housing market.

Successful Selling
My dynamic combination of a client-centred approach and modern marketing techniques means I am able to connect buyers and sellers.

If you are looking for a more relaxed yet effective real estate experience, call me for a no obligation chat, in confidence.

What my clients say


"Darren and Scott consistently demonstrated an approach we knew we could work with. We decided they would definitely get a quick sale with a great result and they did not fail us. In fact, if it wasn't for their constructive suggestions and encouragement, we would not have achieved meeting our next deadline. Within six weeks the property was sold and new owners had moved in. We are sure that this was all due to a great marketing strategy, excellent communication and dedication by them and the team at Barfoot & Thompson, Pukekohe."
O & S Spencer


"We found Darren very easy to talk to and a lot of usual "house selling stresses" were non-existent. He was there to guide us into our next home and he listened to us and understood our needs. We would not hesitate to recommend Darren to anyone buying or selling, we will definitely seek his expertise in the future."
Anthony & Angela Steele


"We've had the pleasure of dealing with Darren Szaszy from Barfoot & Thompson in Pukekohe. Originally, we only listed the property as a private sale but Darren contacted us after seeing our listing and told us that he had potential buyers which is where our dealings began. He completely exceeded our expectations and we would happily recommend his services to anyone that requires a great real estate agent that would go the extra mile when it comes to selling your property. He is very professional, friendly and just overall excellent to deal with. He managed to get a buyer for our property in record time, the buyer signed the contract directly after their first visit. Darren also managed to negotiate the terms of the contract to bring forward the unconditional date which gave us plenty of extra time to find a home before settlement. One more thing, he got us a great price for our property with which we are extremely happy!"
Hanlo Reyneke


Darren Szaszy - WOW! The service delivered and result gained through marketing and selling with Darren was exceptional. Top dollar - record price in the area and all with no pressure, a lot of information and great guidance. Professional, outstanding service given with obtaining a fantastic result. That's what you'll get from Mr Darren Szaszy. He should be your first contact as a real estate agent for selling and marketing your property. Many thanks again Darren to yourself and team Barfoot & Thompson Pukekohe.

Darren Szaszy made the sale of my property a seamless task from beginning to end, whilst being professional at all times there was still room for a bit of light hearted humour which is nice at a stressful time. The sale price Darren achieved for my property was well beyond my expectations, as was the speed of sale (three days). I found Darren to be a fast and effective communicator which is very important to me as I like to be kept up to date with progression. Darren is a diligent agent with a sound market knowledge, I would highly recommend his services to all.
Jenna Brown


Darren gave professional advice and used marketing strategies which ensured there was plenty of interest from first home buyers and property investors. By using a suggested selling range and highlighting the development potential of the site/location, it ensured a good turnout at the auction which achieved a selling price I didn't believe was possible six months ago. "I would be crazy not to go with Szazy" selling my next property down the street. Darren is the man who knows this part of town.
Carlos Short


After 30 years as a practicing realtor myself as well as being a retired real estate tutor and student assessor, it is with much pleasure that I write this endorsement of the experience that my wife, Dulcie, and I recently had in our dealings with Darren Szaszy. His calm and relaxed selling style is indeed refreshing in today's world of urgency and pressure. We were impressed by his communication skills, listening ability and negotiating expertise which were all conducted free of duress or stress. We were left with the feeling that Darren was fair and just to both transacting parties to their mutual satisfaction. The basic principles of service plus his friendly attitude together with the professionalism displayed will definitely secure Darren's future in the real estate industry in these rapidly changing times of technology and ever-increasing legislative requirements. Darren is an ethical, fine, young man who we would happily use in the future or recommend to clients or customers.

Recently we asked Darren Szaszy to sell our property in Valley Road. He was extremely professional and very self motivated. Darren was very pleasant to deal with, easy to contact, and prompt with what ever was required. We would have no hesitation to use Darren in the future.
S & K Barnes


We recently sold our property in Pukekohe through Barfoot & Thompson. Darren Szaszy was our agent. At all times we were treated respectfully and Darren completed the sale without any stress to us. He was very knowledgeable, friendly, punctual for appointments and always kept us well informed every step of the way. He was easy to talk to and listened to our point of view, but at the same time guiding us through the technical details of the marketing plan and auction. We were very confident with his ideas and suggestions and extremely happy with the end result. We have no hesitation in recommending Darren to anyone thinking about selling.

Darren Szaszy, representing Barfoot & Thompson, was sensitive to our needs, and quick to recognise the broad appeal of our property. Darren presented us with a team approach, a proven track record and an established company's backing. I was impressed by Darren's clear thinking, calm assured manner and commitment to getting the best price for us. With access to a broad base of potential buyers, and an established reputation, I felt confident that with Barfoot & Thompson, the marketing and sale of the property would be well taken care of. Darren was at all times, polite, generous with his time and answered our questions clearly. I wish Darren every success, and once again thank you!

Darren recently sold my property in Waiau Pa. I have found him to be friendly, polite and professional and also genuine and honest. He was always easy to contact and a very good communicator - I never had to ask for feedback throughout the marketing campaign. I would definitely recommend Darren to anyone that is considering selling.
Sue Austin

You kept us well informed during the marketing process and we found you to be very professional and personable and easy to work with. We would be very happy to recommend your services to anyone wishing to sell their property. .

Hi Nick. Just want to say I have been dealing with Darren Szaszy in the sale of my property (Sedgebrook Rd, Patumahoe) and I just want you to know that I am very impressed with him and his lovely assistant Katie. I met Darren after he sold my neighbours property and I have to say I had my doubts that he would be successful in selling mine as it would have been the third time my property was on the market, In the past after about three weeks without a sale I wouldn't hear from the agent till the contract ran out but Darren was relentless in attending open homes every week for four months and arranging private viewings. Apart from one week there was always a good show through and when I started to get despondent of a sale he would always be positive, encouraging and supportive assuring me it would happen which it eventually did and securing the price I needed. As it's the first time I had ever reached this point in selling a property, Darren proved very patient answering repeated questions which he must have got fed up with but didn't show, he remained professional yet friendly the whole time, I also appreciated his honesty and transparency and cannot fault his communication, it was excellent. In the past I have had to chase up agents but not with Darren to the point I didn't worry as I knew he would contact me as soon as he could with news or follow ups of the open homes (always that same day) which took away a lot of anxiety. During the process we met Katie and I know she must do a lot behind the scenes but she was also so positive and we enjoyed seeing her when she came out. I would highly recommend Darren in selling a property and if I had to would use him again, he made the whole process seamless. I owe him many, many thanks. As an aside, my daughter has a mild intellectual disability and as she is quiet, is often overlooked but Katie and Darren included her in discussions, made her feel a part of the process and treated her like any other person which she hugely appreciated. You have an amazing team there.

"We have been delighted with the service received from Darren Szaszy of Barfoot & Thompson Pukekohe when selling our house. It was the first time selling a property; however Darren's professional approach and sound advice made it a stress free experience. Darren truly made us feel that we were his top priority.

At Darren's suggestion we took our property to Auction and sold for well above the Reserve. We couldn't have asked for a better result. We would highly recommend Darren to anyone looking to buy or sell property."
Stephanie & Darryl Devcich

Darren was brilliant through the whole process of selling our house. Very friendly, flexible, knowledgable and easy to chat with about any issues. Would highly recommend. The best agent we have ever worked with.
