I have known Eileen Taua for many years now and have sold three houses using her wide expertise. Her dedication, depth of knowledge of the local area, honesty (telling it as it is rather than what you might want to hear), and her unstinting enthusiasm is an absolute force to be reckoned with.
I would unreservedly recommend her to anyone thinking of buying or selling real estate.Keith Ryman - Smyth Road, Henderson
An emotional and busy time for our family, Eileen Taua was the perfect person that suited our needs and understood our situation at hand and applied herself in every avenue possible, to get us the best possible result. We sold a legacy that had been in the family for over 40 years, with an absolute legend!
Amazing, genuine, incredibly approachable, knowledgeable and superbly experienced, Eileen was an absolute gem to deal with and work with. We would highly recommend Eileen to help sell or even buy your next home.
Thank you, Eileen for your generosity, showing a genuine love and compassionate concern towards mum, especially throughout the entire process. Thank you for the work you put in, being a delight to deal with and helping us get a record breaking sale.
The results really showed how amazing you are!The Rota Whanau
Selling a family home can be a very stressful time, but Eileen Taua made it as pleasant as possible with her professionalism. She remained positive the whole time and I was kept well informed throughout the whole process. It was a very short process as Eileen knows her clients well and had multiple buyers lined up for us before we knew it. I would highly recommend her to people for her personal touch and people skills.Kaye Thompson
Hi there. We have just been through the process of selling my Mum and Dad's home in West Harbour and having had Eileen Taua sell our previous house for us by auction a few years ago it was an easy decision to make to get Eileen again as she is the most honest trustworthy and hardworking real estate agent i know. As we guessed it was a well organised campaign and the feedback throughout the process was awesome so every step of the way we were informed of what happens. Eileen went above and beyond the call of duty to put my Mum's mind at rest with what was happening. The auction day went as planned with professional contact throughout. We were over the moon with it all and it sold on the day through hard work and dedication. The auctioneer was so professional and worked for the vendors every step of the way. We highly recommend Barfoot & Thompson throughout the process and are more than happy with the result.Paula Watling & Rose Gowler
I would recommend Eileen to anyone needing help with Real Estate. I had to sell my home and downsize due to a fall I had. The thought of having to sell I found rather stressful. Eileen with her knowledge of real estate plus her thoughtfulness towards my situation, I found the journey with her rather easy. Thanks sounds an inadequate word, but thanks Eileen.Beverley Davenport
Eileen Taua made a very stressful time in my life as pleasant as possible with her professionalism in selling my property. Would recommend her highly to people for her personal touch and people skills.Julie Scrafton
I am an offshore seller who needed 100% dedication to selling my property without me being present in New Zealand. Eileen took care of everything, from organising gardening, garage carpeting, staging and household maintenance in order to get the property up to beautiful condition for sale. Eileen communicated well through every step of the process and made the whole (auction) and selling process easier. I would not hesitate in recommending her to other potential sellers.Craig Abela
My agent was extremely professional, warm and friendly. In spite of the challengers that occurred she remained positive and encouraged the same response in me. I was kept well informed throughout the process.Judy Paling
Great service, very helpful. We didn't get as much as we would have liked price wise, but we believe that is due to the market and property, not the agent.Troy & Fiona Willmot
It is a pleasure to record my appreciation of marketing and selling of Barfoot & Thompson and specifically Eileen Taua in selling my property at 1 Seagrove Road, West Harbour. Eileen Taua sold this property to me in 2010 and we had stayed in touch since. When I decided to sell the property again I invited Barfoot & Thompson (Eileen) and two other Real Estate agencies to offer proposals for marketing and selling my property. I engaged Barfoot & Thompson to sell the property as their market knowledge and selling processes were very creditable to me. I put my trust in their advice and they delivered what they under took to deliver. My house sold at auction at above the agreed reserve price.
Eileen proved to be extremely helpful, knowledgeable and honest in presenting the property for sale. She was able to call on her extensive experience and network of professional associates in preparing, marketing and selling the property. It was a very unified team effort.
It was a great pleasure for me to have met and dealt with Eileen Taua. She was very friendly yet professional at all times. Eileen worked very hard to get me the result I did, more than I thought I could for my home. I will be recommending Eileen to my friends and family when selling and buying their homes. Thank you so much to Eileen and Barfoot & Thompson for taking the stress out of selling my home.Kura O'Loughlin
Eileen has sold several of our rental & family properties in West Harbour over the past 12+ years. Eileen is a very honest, professional and reliable lady with a beautiful persona. Her wealth of knowledge in this property market is invaluable. She has gone over and above to assist in the sale of our properties from water blasting, mowing lawns and most recently cleaning up water damage herself then co-ordinating with insurance assessor & repair contractors just weeks prior to settlement in our absence. Just last month Eileen organised the purchase of our new property which we have not physically seen whilst we are overseas. Eileen is someone that we trust immensely and will always prefer her to handle our property sales & purchases.Dean & Rondelle Kahu - Dubai - UAE
We would like to congratulate Barfoot & Thompson on the outstanding service provided by Eileen Taua in marketing and selling our home recently. Eileen acted with the utmost professionalism in all respects. She communicated effectively, was always approachable and shared her wide experience willingly. Eileen provided an uncommon service and exemplary standard often missing in today's world.Allan & Jill Crayton-Brown
Eileen gives exceptional sales services. She works well with people and has considerable knowledge of selling properties in this area. For the previous 2 years she gave us regular visits and updates of current values, before we finally made our decision to go into a retirement village.Peter & Thea Scowcrift
Have used Eileen Taua for many years & she is one of the best real estate agents. Eileen is practised in the areas of negotiation and selling which is a key factor in her professionalism. Eileen is an excellent listener and along with her professionalism and her commitment to her customer service, she combines her strong negotiation skills to deliver the best ever possible results for us. Eileen can tailor a marketing programme to suit any requirements. She is one of a kind. We will be using Eileen again for the next house we sell. Thanks Eileen.Gary & Tia Lorenzen
I found Eileen to be a very honest and trustworthy agent who acted for me in a very professional way who listened to waht my needs were and acted accordingly. I couldn't have asked for better communication and the whole selling process was a smooth and painless one. I would high recommend her and will be using her again.Paul Edley
My decks needed cleaning and I was going to do it the week after the property was listed. While I was at work Eileen and her husband surprised me. I came home to a beautiful clean deck. When my place was burgled she was available to help even though it was late. She got a locksmith to come out to install a deadbolt as I couldn't close my front door. She referred amazing trades people that did such a great job with the repairs. It's hard to detect any signs of a break in. Eileen has great people skills and a great sense of humour. I trust her advice as she has good knowledge of the area. She's a great asset to your company. I would highly recommend her to my friends.Catherine Wong
