About Elaine Tutty

I began my career in the property industry 35 years ago as a residential property salesperson in Auckland. I then spent more than a decade in Hong Kong, employed by a major real estate company in Kowloon selling and leasing residential property to the expatriate community. Although my background was in the travel industry, I became captivated by property and the opportunities it presented. This drove me to become involved in property investment and through my own experience in this field decided I wanted to focus on commercial property.

On my return to New Zealand I became a commercial and industrial consultant with the Albany branch of the Professionals and was consistently the top seller in the branch. I joined Barfoot & Thompson North Shore Commercial in 2007.

My strengths revolve around my customer service focus and my belief that with hard work and focus anything is possible. I am results driven and believe professionalism, honesty and integrity are without a doubt the most valuable tools of any salesperson.

What my clients say


I would like to take this opportunity to make a very special thank you for all your efforts resulting in the successful sale of our Albany building.
I have to admire your never ending tenacity in motivating us to go to auction.
During all this decision making, you succeeded in maintaining a dignified and highly tactful approach given we were going through a very difficult time with the death of our daughter Holly.
I look forward to working with you once again at some later stage.

John Devine


Just wanted to put it in words for the record: We have had the best service ever from you in over 18 years of owning and leasing Airborne Rd. We have dealt with a number of real estate agents previously and your professionalism, competence and knowledge of your profession has been outstanding in relation to our overall experience of agents. You have always gone above and beyond our expectations. Also your promptness of action, on time and without fuss has been exceptional.
The past two tenants you found for us have been excellent and after a bad time before that, has given us the confidence to lease the property while living outside of Auckland. Your warm personality has always been a delight and we trust you implicitly. Your attention to detail and going the extra mile (many) - anticipating our needs and our tenant's - has lightened our load as landlords.
You well deserve your success and excellent reputation.
If this sounds like we're praising a friend, that's how we feel about the relationship that has developed over the past 3 ? years.
We would welcome an opportunity to talk personally and reassure anyone that the above comments are truly valid.
Wishing you all the best,

Clare and David Lamb


I have had the pleasure of dealing with Elaine on two occasions with commercial properties. The first when I was selling a property in Carr Rd, Mt. Roskill. I was delighted with the interest she created in the property and more so the financial outcome. First class in both departments.I also know the purchaser was a very happy customer. A win win situation.
My second dealing with Elaine and Chase was just over the past two months. I was selling an other commercial property in Henderson. This was a problem type property with a lot of internal work that had been done with out building consent and also the departing tenant was in the commercial woodwork construction and on their leaving the premises it was to say the least a nightmare with sawdust from floor to ceiling. No problem for Elaine and Chase, they contacted some commercial cleaners and within a very short time the property was looking great with all the offending mess removed.
They worked the clients well and did a wonderful job in advertising the property and once again on the day of the auction a very, satisfactory result was obtained. I would have no hesitation in recommending Elaine and Chase to other commercial sellers.

I had the pleasure of dealing with Elaine whilst trying to find new premises to relocate our business. We were under pressure to find somewhere within the space of a month. Working within a tight deadline Elaine proved herself to be most helpful and effective, going the extra distance to help ensure we secured new premises. I would be happy to recommend Elaine to anyone looking for an agent and, should the need arise, would look forward to working with her again.

Dave Bates


Elaine was clear, factual and forthright. She understood our needs and allowed us space to make our decisions without hustle.

Jo Knight, Zero Waste New Zealand Ltd


I recently sold a property and I specifically signed up Elaine Tutty of Barfoot & Thompson to get the job done. Elaine worked tirelessly to bring potential buyers through and create interest in the property. Elaine is very professional, always presented a positive outlook and delivered on her promises. I would not hesitate to recommend Elaine for any commercial property sale or purchase requirements.

Bruce Cox


Elaine did a fantastic job of selling our commercial property in Takapuna.
Elaine was able to bring the right parties to the table and get them "over the line" which made for a fast and favourable result.
As with most commercial property sales there are considerable administrative "obstacles" and issues arising during due diligence and finalising of the sale process. Elaine handled all these promptly and using her vast knowledge prevented what could have been significant and costly delays. Elaine is a true professional, straight up motivated person. I highly recommend her.

Ross Maxwell, Director, Metco Property Investments


My son Roger and I met Elaine Tutty of Barfoot and Thompson who was acting for vendors of a commercial property in Takapuna as the outcome of our search for a suitable investment property.
The building we settled upon had multiple tenancies and we were effectively buying from a partnership which used another real estate company for administrative purposes so the transaction was quite complex.
We confirm that Elaine handled all aspects of the transaction promptly and in a professional manner. We were well satisfied with the relationship.

Warren Sanderson


Elaine came recommended to us in the first instance. We have found Elaine extremely proactive, professional and very responsive to our needs. Notwithstanding those attributes Elaine is a genuinely empathetic person who looks for the win win outcome.
We can highly recommend her.

J& D Bailey


I found Elaine to be personable and professional. She understood my business requirements and utilised her networks to locate office accommodation for me. She always kept me informed and seemed to go that little bit extra to ensure I was happy with the process. I would be more than happy to recommend Elaine.

David Law


Elaine is a true professional. She listened to what I was looking for, took me to the various locations and recommended the property we purchased as being of good value. She was sensitive in her dealings with us and dealt with the difficulties with calm ease. Her skill in bringing the transaction to fruition is a testament in itself to her professionalism. We also appreciate the follow up and after purchase care. It made our move easier knowing our custom was appreciated. Well done Elaine and thankyou for being there for us.

Ross Revell


Elaine was very helpful with every aspect in regards to finding new premises for our business. It was great to have Elaine by our side helping us through what turned out to be a very stressful time. However the move was a success and would like to thank Elaine who gave us 100
of her time and support.

Michelle & Shaun Shearer


We very much appreciate your time and efforts in connection with the sale of our building. The fact that all proceeded so easily was testament to your personal efforts and good communication on behalf of ourselves and the buyers. During the planning, the sales process and the negotiations you were always ready to act efficiently, professionally and in a friendly manner. In addition you were always ready to respond to clarify any uncertainties.
We thank you Elaine. Best wishes for the future.

Sue & Ian


Elaine took on the task of leasing my building as a personal challenge. The task was made more difficult as it was a split tenancy that had been on the market for over a year with a number of real estate companies. Elaine managed to negotiate her way around this to achieve a one year lease and a deferred sale. Although I was originally not keen to sell Elaine achieved a great result through her hard work and diligence. Many thanks.
