My parents once gave me some valuable advice that I still embrace today. They said 'Make sure that in everything you do you put your heart into it and you will go far in life’. With their words as my guidance, I have been able to achieve more than I could ever have imagined.
I have been part of the Barfoot & Thompson family since 2012. My career with this renowned company started two weeks after my arrival in New Zealand at the company's then #1 branch. In my initial interview with the Branch Manager, she said: 'I’m sorry, we cannot give you the position because your English is not good enough.'
However, she must have noticed something special about me and decided to make me part of her team. During my three years with the company’s top branch (at the time), I achieved the title of Financial Administrator and thankfully, my New Zealand Residency.
Prior to moving to New Zealand, I’d managed my own short term rental business back in my home country. In 2015, I decided to move to another branch within Barfoot & Thompson to launch my career in property management here in New Zealand. During my three years with this new team we ranked in the top five performing teams over the entire company.
In 2018, I was offered a role in the rental relief property management team for the company which was a great opportunity. The key expectations of this team is to provide knowledge, trust and care for our tenants and landlords.
I put my heart into everything I do. Following this philosophy, I was invited in 2020 to become the new Property Manager for the Barfoot & Thompson Manukau branch.
I am known for my positive attitude, my values and my achievements. I look forward to starting my journey with the team and I am looking forward to hearing from you.
Everything went smoothly throughout and I am happy with how Barfoot & Thompson managed my property. A big thanks goes out to Lisa who worked tirelessly looking after my property.
If I purchase another property, I will definitely use Barfoot & Thompson to manage it. Many thanks.
I have been so happy with the Barfoot & Thompson team. I would recommend you anytime. Thank you and all the best for new year.Jeanette
