About Emma Donkin
I entered real estate in 1993, after working for several years in property valuation with my husband, joining the Barfoot & Thompson office in Milford in 1994. In 1999, after five years of successful selling I moved into management at the Mairangi Bay branch.
The Mairangi Bay branch has a strong, focussed team of high profile, self-motivated, experienced salespeople and a very experienced property management team - all of whom have a wealth of local knowledge and real estate expertise. The team's diversity, marketing and sales skills has had this branch featuring in our Top 10 branches on a regular basis over the years.
Our primary aim is to match our clients with the right buyers and ultimately achieve the all important "SOLD" sign. More than any other company, Barfoot & Thompson understands the market in this area and sells on average well over one in three homes on Auckland's North Shore.
As part of the Barfoot & Thompson network we have immediate access to over 77 branches and more than 1700 salespeople covering the greater Auckland and Northland area. As well as our huge multi-national salesforce, the Barfoot & Thompson website - www.barfoot.co.nz - and other associated websites (including exclusive international sites) also provide incomparable exposure to our property listings 24 hours a day, seven days a week. We pride ourselves on being one of the most technologically sophisticated real estate agencies providing the latest information on market trends, finance and buyers. In this fast changing world, use of technology is crucial and knowledge of what it can do for you is expected of our salespeople - however there is nothing more important than actually talking with you, our clients, and this remains an important focus for us! Effective communication is the key to everything.
