It is our immense pleasure to recommend Elizabeth Khosravi and Hamid Farid of Barfoot & Thompson as real estate salespeople for any individual or family searching for the ideal home for their unique situation.
We found this “team of two – the power of two” really very powerful, honest, energetic, up-front, professional with a thorough knowledge of real estate in the Eastern suburbs. We recently sold a brand-new property in a new development with the help of Elizabeth and Hamid. It was a bit unfortunate that the day this listing went live, COVID-19 lockdown was announced. Even though there were no open homes or buyers visiting the property, this team kept working behind the scenes. They maintained regular connection with us via phone and video calls. Elizabeth came up with great marketing plans which were tailored to sell our property. Even when the staging company didn’t have enough cushions for the lounge in a family area, she was quick to bring some cushions from her home. We have never seen any salesperson doing this. This shows this team takes personal interest in any listing they take and work round the clock.
Though we've known this team for the last 11 years but never did business with them as we always used Ray White and Harcourts. They have now proved that this team is more professional and hardworking than other real estate salespeople.
They take all the stress on behalf of the vendor. This was experienced by us when there was a query from the buyer and we were not sure. Elizabeth’s reply to us was “Please don’t stress. Any client working with me shouldn’t be stressed, put it on my shoulders and I will sort it out”. These comments took so much pressure off our shoulders.
Thank you very much Elizabeth and Hamid. You guys did an amazing job. Because of this “team of two” we will be using Barfoot & Thompson as our first choice in real estate matters always in future.Pawan and Ashu Pathela
I highly recommend Elizabeth Khosravi and Hamid Farid. Their professionalism throughout the sale of our property in Pakuranga was extraordinary. From signing up to sell, through to settlement and everything in between, was stress-free. Elizabeth is an amazing communicator and she was always readily available, any time of the day or night, to answer questions and put our minds at ease. Selling during Covid could have been difficult, yet it wasn't, thanks to this amazing duo. Finding very competitively priced tradesmen was made easy thanks to their contacts. We needed a carpet layer and a water blaster for roof, fences and driveway, at a time we couldn't do it ourselves due to Auckland water restrictions.Jenny & Kevin Hood
I would like to thank Elizabeth and Hamid for a great job done on presenting my home for sale. Elizabeth went above and beyond to make sure my questions were answered; great photos were taken and gave me a lot of feedback on open homes.
We were going to Auction on 24th April. Due to the announcement of the lockdown, Elizabeth contacted me and said it would not go ahead, discussed about going negotiable which I decided to do. She pulled out all the stops to get offers on the table. Arrived at my home on the evening of the 23rd. We met at 8.30 pm as an offer was reached, signed and completed. It was a rush but got it to solicitors before we went into lockdown on the 24th.
Elizabeth and Hamid have previously sold four properties for us and we've purchased two. I’ve gone back to her as she does a great job.
Elizabeth has been great, checking that I am well. Now waiting for the lockdown to end so I can move on and the new owners can enjoy my beautiful home.
Thanks Elizabeth and Hamid for a great job.Natalie Dawson
Aloha from Hawaii,
Brad and I just wanted to take a moment to say how much we appreciate Elizabeth and Hamid. If you have an agent recognition forum, we would love for them to be nominated. Here is a testimonial I wrote for them. Thank you to your whole team!
"Elizabeth and Hamid are the best. We were nervous about selling our home in Auckland because we are currently based in Hawai'i. They were recommended to us by friends in Auckland, and we are so grateful for the referral. Elizabeth's communication is on point. She held us to task, and talked us through each step of the process. She also diligently helped us navigate a complicated situation with our tenants and preparation of our home for sale. This meant countless hours of liaising on our behalf. She was our eyes and ears on the ground, and she didn't miss a thing. We are so grateful for her and Hamid. Our house SOLD at auction and we were happy with the price. Thank you again for all your hard work and being so professional to work with. We highly recommend this dream team to anyone local or overseas."
I am one of the Trustees of a Deceased Estate. When the time came to sell the Estate's residential property we chose Elizabeth to auction the property for us. With hindsight that was one of the very best decisions we have ever made. Elizabeth knows how to effectively market properties and more importantly she knows how to engage potential buyers. She is also an excellent communicator and kept us fully informed every step of the way. As a result of her tireless efforts she obtained an OUTSTANDING price for our property. If you are looking for an Agent we would have no hesitation in highly recommending Elizabeth.Phil Besant
Elizabeth and Hamid are extremely hardworking and diligent professionals who did an amazing job selling our home. Right from the start they put us at ease, and helped us though the whole process ensuring any stress was completely eradicated.
Their communication throughout was second to none. They gave 100%, dedicating their time and energy into getting the best price for our property, providing excellent advice every step of the way from house staging to open homes and beyond.
We can’t thank Elizabeth and Hamid enough for their dedication and professionalism. We most definitely highly recommend this lovely couple to everyone who is selling their home.
Finally a big thank you to you both
Kind regardsJohn & Julie
I was a little hesitant to sell my apartment as it was my first home, and with this was unsure of the market and what to do in terms of choosing an agent. I seeked Elizabeth's real estate advice firstly, to help me make an informed decision - and I think this was the best thing I ever did! Elizabeth is a fantastic listener, never once did I feel pressured to list my home with her, she gave me sound advice and really gave me time to think about things. A couple of months later I called Elizabeth back and said I was ready to list. She was an absolutely amazing agent- she held my hand as she talked me through the process of selling a property, and ensured I fully understood everything! Elizabeth was a fantastic communicator keeping me informed throughout the process, about absolutely every little thing. She put her best effort forward with the marketing of my home and I really appreciated it and boy did it work, as the first day my home was listed I was presented with a fabulous offer, which I happily accepted. So thank you again Elizabeth. I truly appreciated your help with selling my home, it can be very overwhelming but you made it all seem so easy. And above all thank you for taking the time to make it about people - you truly care Elizabeth and your kindness and thoughtful nature to support me during my own personal stresses during this time, will always be remembered.Jenny Laing
When deciding to sell my property the best decision I made was having agents Elizabeth & Hamid from Barfoot and Thompson Pakuranga.
I found them both to be honest and hardworking, always going the extra mile to help me
Giving good advice on how best to present the property from their extensive knowledge of the Auckland property market.
They were totally focused on getting the best outcome on selling my property for me.
I live overseas, but Elizabeth kept me regularly informed (sometimes daily) and at all hours, on all aspects of preparing for auction, staging photo's and open house feedback from prospective buyers
Property went on market and within 5 days I had a pre auction offer. On auction day there was 14 bidders. Property sold way above pre auction offer. I believe this was achieved because of the excellent work and time put in by Elizabeth & Hamid
I cannot thank you both enough for the help you gave me in selling my property.
To anyone wanting to sell a property with an agent, that they can put full trust in to do the best they can for them I would recommend Elizabeth & Hamid.
We would like to say a big thank you to Elizabeth for her time and commitment as our agent.
Living overseas and deciding to sell our unit in NZ was a little daunting for us, but having met Elizabeth and Hamid, it made the entire process very easy.
Elizabeth and Hamid are an excellent team to work with. Their attention to detail, professionalism, reliability, communication skills etc made the entire process stress free for us.
Elizabeth went the extra mile in all areas and she is an extremely well organized lady who is passionate about what she does with a warm heart. Their efforts exceeded our expectations.
Thank you again Elizabeth and Hamid - the sale went very smoothly and we would be hard pressed to find such a good agent in Brisbane.
We wish you and Hamid all the very best for the future and if you ever make a trip to Brisbane we would love to catch up with you.
Elizabeth & Hamid, recently sold our Onehunga house. This is the second house they have sold for us. They worked there butts off to sell our latest house, and have really gone above and beyond to sell our house for us, as the house we sold was by no means an easy house to sell. We have found them amazingly professional and trustworthy and would throughly recommend them to anyone looking to get amazing results.Josh McLaren
It is with pleasure that we write a reference for Elizabeth Khosravi and Hamid Farid of Barfoot & Thompson.
Elizabeth and Hamid are an excellent team, and are by far the best real estate agents we have ever dealt with. They gave superb attention to detail, marketing our house to its full potential. Follow-up with clients was excellent, and they showed a great understanding of documentation and negotiation etiquette. On top of this, both Elizabeth and Hamid are extremely kind and personable.
Their efforts exceeded our expectations, as did our selling price. The entire process was smooth and stress-free. We highly recommend them to anyone looking for effective, reliable and professional real estate agents.
"I would like to thank Elizabeth Khosravvi and Hamid Farid for the excellent work they have done both in selling my property and being an integral part of the process to secure a new home for me and my family.
Over the last 3 years Elizabeth and Hamid have successfully sold 2 properties for me obtaining high purchase prices and selling the properties quickly and efficiently.
Throughout the whole process they were extremely professional, efficient and kept me informed on progress every step of the way. They have an excellent understanding of the current real estate market and provide accurate and valuable advise.
On top of this Hamid helped me through the process of vetting all potential properties in the market to ensure I made the right decision for me and my family. Being a busy business woman this saved me so much time and ensured I did not buy a property with potential problems, at the wrong price or in the wrong area.
On a personal note Elizabeth and Hamid are hard workers who give 100
to their clients and yet still find the time to add the personal touch.
I highly recommend Elizabeth and Hamid to future buyers and sellers and would be more than happy to speak to anyone requiring further information. For buying or selling property they are the only agents for me."
Thank you so much for arranging the sale / purchase of the house. It all went smoothly even on a tight deadline thanks to your co-ordination with the previous property owners.
I really admire your understanding of the situation and professional work ethic making it all happen like smooth sailing smile emoticon.
Also, thank you so much for the gift, it will hold a special place in our kitchen for years to come smile emoticon
I wish you and Hamid all the best of Luck
Elizabeth&Hamid were recommended to me by family members who had used their services three time before with exceptional results.I found her very helpful in the initial stages of the refurbishment as I used tradespeople she recommended with good outcomes.Elizabeth was very efficient and knowledgeable and kept me well informed at all times with good feedback from the open homes.I felt that Elizabeth had my best interests at heart and was definitely working on my behalf to get the best possible outcome and the result far exceeded my expectations.I would strongly recommend Elizabeth and Hamid to any seller who wants reliable people working on their behalf at all times and coming up with exceptional results.Jean Dolheguy
Richard and I have recently successfully sold our home in Pakuranga. We were lucky enough to have had Elizabeth Khosravi and Hamid Farid from Barfoot & Thompson Pakuranga to assist us with this sale.Elizabeth and Hamid are very professional and knowledgeable in all areas of Real Estate and kept us
informed of progress every inch of the way. If we ever had any worries they could be contacted and we were put at ease knowing that they would help with any concerns we had. Not only did they do this but Elizabeth assisted us with the presentation of our property to best demonstrate the full potential of the property to prospective buyers.We would like to say that we would highly recommend Elizabeth and Hamid to our friends, family or anyone who needs assistance with the sale of their property.
I have recently sold two houses one in Howick and the other in Bucklands Beach by auction with Elizabeth Khosravi and her husband Hamid as the real estate agents who marketed the properties. I found Elizabeth and Hamid both very professional and most helpful in answering all my questions. Elizabeth worked tirelessly to ensure as many potential buyers as possible were aware of the up coming auctions and brought many people to view the houses. I was kept up to date with daily phone calls and given expert advice on how things should proceed. I also found her advertisements most effective and the brochures of the houses most impressive. Elizabeth and Hamid are a lovely couple that know the real estate business very well. They are friendly, helpful, professional and always willing to go the extra mile. What could have been a stressful time was made so much easier with their help. I have no hesitation in recommending Elizabeth and Hamid to anyone wishing to sell their property, you will be in great hands.Carol Austin
"With Elizabeth and Hamid's strong customer focus and their will to deliver the best possible marketing packages for their clients, they haven proven a formidable team. Successful results speak for themselves, overwhelmed appreciative vendors shout loud and clear these agents are good.
It is my pleasure to shake their hands with every success they gain."
"I didn't know how lucky I was when I contacted Barfoot & Thompson regarding an appraisal of my property when they sent me Elizabeth Khosravi around. The advice I received from her on the best way to sell my property and the help with the presentation was truly amazing.
The photos made my house look like a million dollar home. The house went on the market on Tuesday, I had an offer on Friday which I was happy with however, Elizabeth advised me to ask for more, the offer that came back was acceptable to me.
The auction went ahead on the next Tuesday and I was amazed at the rapid pace of bidding that went to $66,000 more than I had dreamed of. The manner in which she dealt with the marketing of my property was excellent and very professional. I would recommend her to anyone that is thinking of selling their house; Elizabeth goes the extra mile to help. I feel as though I've made a real friend."
"The first time I met Elizabeth Khosravi and Hamid (her husband) was at our Whanau Hui (family meeting), I was really impressed with her professional attitude and great advice. To sell a house with multiple shareholders (Family members) was a task on it own, but Elizabeth truly went the extra mile to accommodate each shareholder. I was so happy to work with Elizabeth, because this was my first time, she talked me through the whole process, and kept me up to date by email and phone, leading up to the auction day. We sold the property in Pakuranga, at the auction, above the market price, which shock myself and the shareholders (family members). The auction day was an experience that I would never forget, but with Elizabeth and Hamid it was great to have that knowledge and support by my side. They differently " walk the talk" with a comprehensive marketing plan in place, I would highly recommend them to anyone interested in selling their home or property. Finally I would like to take this opportunity to thank Elizabeth and Hamid from the bottom of my heart for this amazing trip they took myself and my whanau (family) on."Lee Clark
After reviewing multiple salespeople we decided on Elizabeth and Hamid to market our property because of their total confidence in their own ability to sell our property at a higher price than we had indicated.We found, right from the beginning, they understood the many avenues available to market our unique investment property. We found Elizabeth to be very approachable and available at any time that we had questions or needed advice.
Elizabeth took control over the arrangements with the tenants, organising with them on the open homes and viewing times, taking the pressure off us completely. After two weeks we received a pre-auction offer, which we were happy with and brought the auction forward. The auction was held at the Pakuranga office and drew a massive crowd (which highlights the amount of work they both did in getting interested parties to the auction)
We ended up with 7 active bidders pushing our sale price a further $80,000 more than the pre-auction offer. We were understandably over the moon with this result as this extra $80,000 they obtained for us will be life changing! We'd like to thank them both and highly recommend Elizabeth and Hamid to anyone looking to sell their property.
"Georgina and I want to thank you for the professional and well planned sale of our rental property at 1/10Glennandrew.
We came from a background of being a little wary of Real Estate processes from an earlier sale by another agent and agency with which we were not entirely happy. We entered our arrangement with a degree of uncertainty, but have been heartened by your support which went go on to deliver a process with great professionalism.
You spent some time convincing us of the merits of using the auction process for this dwelling, and went on to prove your knowledge of the area and the market. From the moment of signing up, you quickly came to understand our needs. You took this to go and create an advertising program in the property press, on the web and in great brochures, which we felt showed our property brilliantly. At the same time maintaining the integrity of what the property was. Timetables were clear, and adjusted as our needs changed, and communication constant, never leaving us in doubt as to the current state of the process.
You gave positive re-enforcement to cleaning and maintenance of the property, before it went formerly on the market to ensure it was presented in the most appealing way and without the need to spend a fortune to get there. You suggested one of three staging agents asked to quote, and the company you recommended did an excellent job optimising the attributes of the house, and prompting much praise from our family and friends to whom we gave private viewings to show how well it had come up.
After little more than a week on the market you produced a third offer which we decided to accept as our reserve price. Whilst, we felt we really wanted more, your assurance was that the auction would do this. On Auction day, bidding started at the reserve price and then proceeded to overwhelm us by exceeding this by $63,000.
We enjoyed working with you both and are enthusiastically passing on our recommendation to our friends and for anyone needing some reference to your abilities.
Once again thank you, well done."
"I sold my property in Pakuranga with Elizabeth Khosravi and Hamid Farid.
They provided me with a stress free sale and their professionalism was outstanding. It was great to work with a couple that were honest, reliable and would go that extra mile for you as their client. The communication between us was always clear and prompt.
The advertising was amazing; the photos and flyers were very professionally put together. The sale sign was a great attraction to the property.
The house was on the market for 10 days, and then we had a pre-auction offer come in at an acceptable price. The auction was brought forward and we had 1 x phone bidders and 4 x bidders in the crowd. (much to Elizabeth's dedicated work and encouraging clients to the auction). The house sold for an extra $36,000 on top of the pre auction offer. There were no words for the excitement of our sale.
I would highly recommend both Elizabeth and Hamid to any person wanting to sell their property."
The service and personal attention we received from Elizabeth was exceptional and unexpected from a Real Estate Agent! Her knowledge of the local market and hereye for perfect presentation helped us in the selling of our home above our dream Price. The speed it was sold was fantastic, 2 weeks from being online to sold day, in a market that we are in now is a very impressive record. Nothing was ever too hard!! She was available 24/7, was never pushy and has a very calming persona.
Regardless of whether you are buying or selling, I would highly recommend Elizabeth Khosravi to help you in this life changing process. We could not have asked for a better Real Estate Agent to guide us through the process.
"Elizabeth did an excellent job representing us on the sale of our home. The house was sold within just 3weeks of listing and for the full price we were expecting. She is very detailed and patient with explanation of procedures and forms. Elizabeth always kept in contact either by personal visits or phone or E-mail and regularly provided feedback on open home reports. We found Elizabeth very patient, confident and a thorough professional and equally friendly. Also, helped us reconcile council related issues.
We found her extremely organised and kept driving us to meet our deadlines. Excellent marketing skills and people friendly.
We would highly recommend her to anyone interested in the selling their home or property for the best results"
"We feel privileged to have met Elizabeth and Hamid. As reluctant sellers due to the location of our property and over capitalising on our home they made the whole process seem like a dream come true.
They presented our property in the best possible way and we believe it was a combination of this and their expertise that sold our home in 10 days for what we wanted. We then went onto purchasing our dream home through them in Golflands and once again their advice got us the best possible price at auction.
They truly went the extra mile to help us achieve our goal and we will be forever grateful. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone selling or buying a property. I wish them all the best in the future and should I need to go through the process again I would definitely seek their expertise again."
"We sold our house recently through Barfoot and Thompson. Our agent was Elizabeth Khosravi and I would like to say what an excellent lady this is. She has helped us with the presentation of our house; made sure the photos were right and gave us constructive advice on all aspects.
I found her to be honest and truthful at all times and she even carried on with open homes while we were on holiday.
I was really impressed. Also her professional attitude and good advice is really appreciated.
Thank you Elizabeth for helping us to sell our biggest asset at a good price and all the time you invested."
"I have been privileged to recruit many top salespeople over the years but rarely have I met an individual who is so customer driven that her main focus is simply to establish how she can help and serve others. Good on you - our industry needs more people like you.
You have integrity and great attitude. You action what you say you will. I have no doubt that your honest approach and strong work ethic will not only ensure your success but also the success of your clients which is clearly your top priority."
"Wow! What an energetic, enthusiastic and honest person! What more can we say!
She was available 24/7 and kept us well informed with regular contact on how things were going and gave us honest and accurate feedback - even when it wasn't the best news - which we appreciated. When I saw my house in property press I couldn't believe it, she did a fantastic job to show my real house in the press.
Also she provided the best possible information pack including the rental prices and invited a mobile mortgage manager in the open homes to make the decision easy for people who were considering to buy the property. We've never been treated by such professionalism before.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the great marketing and most importantly she sold my property $14 000 more than my dream price!!!
Should we be in a position where we are selling or buying a home in the future, we would be more than happy to have you assist us with the task."
"It is with great pleasure that I write a reference for Elizabeth Khosravi. We made the decision to sell our house and luck was on my side when I made the call to Barfoot & Thompson, Pakuranga and was put through to this remarkable lady. Her excellent listening and communication skills made the entire process stress free, something I didn't imagine possible when selling property. Nothing was a problem.
Elizabeth has an amazing eye for detail and had great advice on how best to market our home. Being so trustworthy and following through on every detail are just a few of her many attributes. Elizabeth accommodated all our family requirements and provided us with a very precise and detailed plan that suited us all. Because of this efficiency we sold at auction without a hitch and at a price above our expectation. Needless to say we were delighted.
Elizabeth truly goes the extra mile and whether you are looking to buy or sell don't go past this agent who will make this monumental moment in your life so easy and hassle free. She is a true professional with a big heart and a caring/ sharing nature. An extremely well organised individual who is passionate about what she does. Long may she be around for our next house move."
"Elizabeth Khosravi sold my property at Auction on the 16 August 2011. I had never sold a property by Auction before so I had my reservations.
Elizabeth took them away totally with her approachable, open, honest, caring easy friendly manner, confidence and integrity.
The comfort, trust and rapport Elizabeth built with me over the procedure and process of selling my home was amazing, she more than went that extra mile.
Her meticulous attention to detail, marketing, expertise, professionalism, competence and commitment to what she undertakes is a tribute to her.
Her warm organisational skills of managing the tenants and myself explaining anything we were unsure on, meeting our wants and needs was commendable. Putting myself and them first from the initial meeting right through to the follow-ups.
Being the essence she is, she is remarkably a wonderful sincere lady real estate specialist.
I recommend her to anyone to sell their property or find a buyer for your property.
Thank you so very much Elizabeth."
"Hi, Not sure if this is the right place if i want to give a POSITIVE feedback about an agent but could not find any other feedback form on your website. This is regarding Elizabeth Khosravi from Barfoot Pakuranga. She is an amazing real estate agent. We bought a house through her in Goodwood Heights & she is one of those people who are always ready to go that extra mile just to make things easier for their clients. She was always ready to help us with whatever the issue be. Being first home buyers, we really appreciate all the help & guidance she offered during this sale. She has this warmth & positive attitude that can really make a person comfortable. I think shes not just a good salesperson but an amazing human being too. Would love to sell/buy property through her again. Would recommend her to my friends anyday!!"Neetu & Max
"We recently bought a house with Elizabeth and she was fantastic in the entire procedure. She gave us lots of useful information about the property (positive and negative), records of prices that have been sold in that area recently and provided everything that we needed to know. She didn't leave us until she saw a big smile on our face and of course she is more than happy to assist us even post sale. There is not much more that I could ask for in terms of effort and doing everything correct and accurately. We just want to say thanks Elizabeth, thank you for your help and time with us!"Wei Shi and Siyan
"Our property at 96 Angelo Ave Howick, sold recently through Barfoot and Thompson. Our agent Elizabeth Khosravi assisted us throughout the whole process. At all times Elizabeth proved to be reliable and professional. She kept in constant communication with us until the settlement date.
Our requests regarding the sale of the house were always met in a polite, courteous manner and I always felt that she was working for us as the seller.
Elizabeth did a comprehensive marketing plan and adhered to it right to the end. Almost 100 potential buyers visited during the 3 weeks prior to auction. She followed up on all leads both by email and phone.
I have no hesitation in recommending her services in the real estate industry."
"We purchased a property in Half Moon Bay on the 9th February and prior to that date had attended several open homes. During the open homes, Elizabeth always looked after the best interests of her client and at the same time was very helpful and courteous to perspective buyers. Elizabeth was very approachable and informative when we had questions. We found it refreshing that Elizabeth was not too pushy which would have discouraged us from attending as many open homes as we did.
Elizabeth helped us with arranging a property inspection and followed up with phone calls generally kept in touch with us until the auction date.
During the Auction and the purchase process afterwards, Elizabeth was attentive and professional and her charming personality helped us to relax during a stressful time (stressful because buying a property is stressful!).
At all times we found Elizabeth to be professional and courteous; a credit to the Real Estate Industry and Barfoot & Thompson."
"We would like to thank Elizabeth for her time and understanding as our agent. We are happy with the swift marketing strategies organized, (the advertising, the selection of photos, opened home and honest feedback after each one, etc.) Taking into consideration how the market is now, we feel that her marketing strategies had sparked a lot of interest towards our home. Thank you again Elizabeth."Keith and Sheryl
"I recently sold my property in Half Moon Bay with the help of Elizabeth Khosravi.
From her first visit we were immediately put at ease by her courteous and friendly manner. Her positive and professional approach was most welcome and I really felt she was on my side, working hard to get me the highest price.
I found her most sensitive to my needs. For example, over the three week auction period there were times when I was not well. Elizabeth insisted that I stay home during the open homes while she was receiving the potential buyers, and this was a great comfort.
All in all, she never said no to anything I asked her to do for me, even after the sale. Her honesty, humour and approachable style were just what I needed and I am grateful for her help throughout what might have been a stressful process."
"I recently purchased a property in Howick at auction through Elizabeth Khosravi and I would like to thank her and provide a testimonial letter.
I looked at many properties for sale over a period of several months and of course had dealings with many different agents from various companies. I can honestly say that Elizabeth was by far the best agent I dealt with.
I first met Elizabeth at an open home of the property I ended up buying. I had arrived close to the scheduled finish of the open home and thought I would have to rush through the viewing. This of course wasn't the case; Elizabeth greeted me with a big smile, was very helpful and made me feel at ease. She was very knowledgeable about the property and was able to answer all my questions in an honest and uncomplicated manner.
That evening Elizabeth called me and asked me if I had any more questions, which was appreciated as I did have questions that I did not think of at the open home. She told me when the next open home was and offered to arrange a time for me to view the property again if the open home time was not suitable. It seemed that nothing was too much trouble for her.
In the time leading up to the auction Elizabeth kept in close contact with me providing advice and answering my questions. Buying a property at auction is something that I had never done before and I was expecting it to be a very nerve racking experience, however Elizabeth was there to greet me and despite having other clients there, she took the time to give me the support and confidence that I needed. The rest, as they say, is history.
This property could easily have been one that I would've overlooked if it wasn't for the outstanding service that Elizabeth provided me. It was a pleasure dealing with Elizabeth and I feel that I have gained a friend as well as a real estate professional that I can personally recommend to anyone. No doubt at sometime in the future I will need the services of a real estate agent and it will most certainly be Elizabeth Khosravi."
"It takes a special type of estate agent to remain excited and committed in the tough winter market of 2010. Elizabeth is one of them.
From the outset Elizabeth impressed with her enthusiasm for the project and went out of her way to ensure that the property was ready and dressed for the first viewing. She even added to the setting by adding a few of her personal items.
The intricacies of the sale / auction process were clearly explained as we decided which avenue to pursue. Open homes were well managed within the set times and we had confidence that our home was being well managed.
Another example of going beyond the call of duty was her delivering boxes for us to use in the move. This was really appreciated by the family.
Her calm but determined demeanour inspired confidence and we can now say that we are extremely happy with our outcome on Corrofin Drive. As a result we will be recommending her services to all we meet."
"We initially listed our property privately. After the first week of open home we found it all too hard and it was almost with gratitude that we handed the sale over to the expertise of Elizabeth Khosravi of Barfoot & Thompson. She attacked the task with exuberance and after just four weeks, our home was sold unconditionally. Thanks again Elizabeth and her husband Hamid, looking forward to seeing them in the South Island some time soon."Trish and Bruce
"When we decided to sell our house we wanted to sell ourselves and did our own marketing. Then we found out how hard is to sell house for expected price. Then we went to meet Elizabeth and Hamid (her husband). We told them our deadline and our expected money. She is so energetic and committed. She did very good work and bought around 30 people in a couple of weeks. They sold our house within two weeks with a very good price and she did all these in Christmas holiday period so that is excellent work done in holiday season. I recommend her for selling your next house and I bet you will love working with her.
Thanks Elizabeth and the team at Barfoot & Thompson Pakuranga.
"Elizabeth and Hamid have sold my property at St Johns in three weeks in a very professional manner. I would not hesitate to recommend them to any vendor wanting to appoint professional salespeople. If you really want to sell your property, contact them first."David Sanders
"I have dealt with quite a few "salespeople" in my time, who were of mixed natures, capabilities, application and results. I have never met a person as professional in this field of endeavour .I am thinking of selling another beautiful property in the near future and will ask her to handle it for me."Hugh James Grace

They committed to sell our property within a price range higher than any other agent we discussed with, they gave us very good, professional advice about what we need to do to ensure the house looks more appealing to the prospective buyers , they followed up on our progress, they brought the right customer to see the house before going to auction , achieving a top price - very happy buyer , very happy seller , very happy agent . We've been really grateful to have them guiding and supporting us through this process and going the extra mile to ensure we achieve a great result and we would recommend them to anyone looking to put their house on the market ."Nic & Nori Sur
We want to sell our home without paying commission, we advertised in Trade me and we could not sell it. After we signed exclusively with Elizabeth and Barfoot& Thompson, she started very strong marketing and our house has been sold above our expectation price. We are grateful for the job she and her husband did for our family and we recommend them strongly for any property sell or buy. God BlessBahman & Cherry Golchin
Thank you Elizabeth and Hamid for the great team work in selling our house well over the price expectations
and in less than 3 weeks! We had from the beginning a very good feeling that we chose the right team.
Thank you again for the professional and prompt service!
