I am one of Barfoot & Thompson's elite performing salespeople. I have honed my skill-set and strategies over many years, with 20 years’ experience at the Pukekohe Barfoot & Thompson branch. I believe that my personal approach to every task sets me apart from the rest. Real estate is my passion and my clients see this demonstrated in my enthusiasm and drive.
A top priority for me is to craft a custom formula for every home I am given the opportunity to market. Each campaign is tailored to fit the seller and their goals for every requirement. This includes the basics through to the finer details. I know how to showcase the property to the ideal target demographic. All this is done to maximise the probability of attaining a premium result.
Whatever the market conditions, the seller's needs remain my first priority. This has resulted in me achieving brilliant results and on many occasions, I have exceeded my vendors' expectations, of which I am very proud. I specialise in the Pukekohe area. I’ve lived and worked locally for so many years, which I believe, gives me an edge that is hard to match.
I deliver on all of the important areas in real estate - professionalism, commitment, passion, and on-the-pulse local market expertise.
When you are ready to sell, call me on 027 222 2117.
Couldn't have asked for a better salesperson.
We first met Elizabeth seven years ago when we bought our home. We were so impressed with her professionalism at the time that we decided should we ever sell then we would go to Elizabeth. As it so happened, we decided to sell up and move to the South Island. Without hesitation we contacted Elizabeth. She had her work cut out for her! as I really wasn't a fan of auctions and was really reluctant to sell that way. However, she listened to my concerns and took the time to explain all the options. The decision was ours, but we trusted her knowledge and agreed to go to auction.
What a great decision that turned out to be! Selling a house is never stress-free but Elizabeth's calm and reassuring manner, combined with great communication from Ian and herself meant we knew what was going on all the time. Just three short weeks and we sold! If you want an agent that knows the market, listens to her customers and his professional, then Elizabeth is the person you are looking for!
Simply The Best Agent.
Elizabeth is Simply the Best Agent. She made me feel very comfortable, especially as I live overseas and was unable to be there for any of the process. Elizabeth went the extra mile in all aspects and treated it like it was her own. I highly recommend Elizabeth. She is very professional at this business and if you want your home sold she will do it and in the most professional way. Thank you Elizabeth. You are the Best ��
Stress Free Experience.
Our dealings with Elizabeth over the sale of our property go back many months. During this time, we have found Elizabeth to be professional, patient, dedicated, hardworking and always positive in supporting us during our indecisions and concerns. Her knowledge and advice has been so helpful and together we have achieved our goal in less than three weeks. Both Elizabeth and Ian make an excellent team and we would have no hesitation in recommending them in any future real estate dealings, whether it be ourselves, friends or other customers.
Loved working with Elizabeth!
Elizabeth assisted us in the sale of our home, and we couldn't have been more impressed with her. She has a wealth of knowledge around real estate and sales and this definitely shines through in her work. Elizabeth was great to deal with and I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for an agent. Thank you again Elizabeth.
Top Notch Agent!
It was a pleasure to deal with Elizabeth during the sale of our property. She was professional and efficient and understood our needs and how we wanted to market our property. She was always available by phone and answered any questions we had immediately. Elizabeth was always on time, smartly dressed and great fun into the bargain. We were extremely pleased with the advertising material produced and the updates received from Elizabeth's "behind the scene" team. Well done to all concerned, a great result was achieved in a very short time.
Excellent Agent with great local knowledge.
Elizabeth is a great agent; she knows her stuff and keeps you updated. Bright and positive personality, we have always used Elizabeth and will continue to do so!
Elizabeth is the perfect agent.
If you want a star who knows what you want before you know, then Elizabeth is your agent. She is clear and doesn't push you. She works tirelessly to give you what you need.
Sold within a day!
If you are thinking of selling your home, Elizabeth is the agent to speak to. Not only has she sold one but two of our properties within a day!
Delivering on a promise.
Elizabeth was very easy to deal with, she listened to us, delivered what she promised and developed a package based on our requirements suggesting changes in strategy to maximise market opportunities as the sale progressed. The communication was seamless, she and Riana responded quickly to any concerns or questions and kept us informed on the progress of the sale. I recommend Elizabeth and her team to anyone looking to sell a property in Pukekohe.
She is a gem!
Elizabeth was an absolute pleasure to deal with from the first phone call I made to her. We were under pressure to get the property on the market ASAP and Elizabeth had it all organised in no time and we had our first open home in a week. Her communication was excellent and I always felt very well informed. She is very professional, offered excellent advice and direction and we managed to sell the house at auction after a 3-week campaign. I highly recommend Elizabeth and it is very reassuring when you know she is on your side. Selling a property can be very stressful and Elizabeth made the experience stress-free and easy. Thank you
"A few notes on working with Team du Plessis
It was a pleasure to work with Ian du Plessis as our land agent in the sale of our home recently. Having only sold one home in our working lives we were nervous about the whole procedure, but were constantly reassured by Ian's knowledge of the local market and his perception and ability to give sound advice. We really appreciated his background knowledge of statistics and intelligent interpretation of current trends in the area.
We found him to be completely trustworthy and honest, open, friendly, genuine and realistic. He spent a lot of time explaining procedures and we learnt to rely on his ability and experience.
We know that he worked very diligently to achieve our goals, and we were appreciative of his support and the hard work he put in behind the scenes to do this.
To anyone buying or selling in this area we would certainly recommend Ian and his team as most enthusiastic, trustworthy and successful land agents."
We want to thank you so much for all the work you put into marketing our home in Pukekohe, and to say how pleased we are with the result that we achieved at auction! We have never before worked with a real estate agent who has worked so hard for us. You really went the extra mile in helping us to present our home in the best possible way, and in keeping us informed of progress after each open home. We really appreciated your efforts, and the result has exceeded our expectations.
"Navigating the rollercoaster of selling our home was indeed something best left to the experts. For exceeding expectations in service, communication and efficiency we couldn't be more impressed with Elizabeth Du Plessis and her team from Barfoot & Thompson. The rare combination of careful and committed management by Elizabeth, stunning photography by John Malley, the marketing experience and astute open home feedback from James, dedicated office support by Dorothy and the negotiation acumen of auctioneer David Johnstone all contributed to achieving a fantastic result. The individual talents of this group are first class, but as a team they are exceptional."Drs Janine Clemons and Frank Molinia
