About Greg Collins

Why Real Estate?

Observing real estate is something that I have always enjoyed in particular, identifying properties with potential. I am pleased to have joined the team at Barfoot & Thompson Parnell; it's an area that I am very familiar with having lived in a number of the surrounding suburbs and now happily living in Parnell. Being able to walk to work is a plus. I enjoy meeting and engaging with new people which teams very well with my longstanding interest in the housing market.

My career prior to real estate has had plenty of variety. My first job on leaving school was in the textile industry and I was lucky enough to travel the world developing ranges and marketing and selling to clothing manufacturers. This lead to my wife and I starting our own clothing company and running it for 13 years. Ten years in finance followed.

Integrity in every transaction is essential and along with being well-organised and thorough I believe these characteristics will be of great benefit to me as a salesperson when marketing your property. Did I say I'm never late for an appointment? I'd rather be 20 minutes early than five minutes late. That's me!

When I'm not working I like to spend time with family, three children and two grandchildren - love them all. I am a very keen golfer (they say you meet the nicest people on the golf course), and being a member of a golf club provides a readymade network of contacts for both buyers and sellers. For some time now I have been involved in fund raising for Cystic Fibrosis New Zealand which I find very rewarding.

If you are thinking of buying or selling or you'd just like to talk about the state of the market, give me a ring. We could meet for a chat.

What my clients say

Greg was instrumental with helping us to secure our first home. He was very helpful, guiding us through the process which ended up spanning quite a few months and definitely went above and beyond what we expected from a real estate agent. Greg's knowledge of the industry and areas also helped instil confidence in us that we were making the right decision. Thanks for all your help!


From our first interaction with Greg, we were impressed with his communication, integrity and professionalism. He showed valuable insight and judgement throughout our sales campaign and ultimately delivered with the end result. A worthwhile and successful process. We would have no hesitation in recommending our family and friends to use Greg and Barfoot & Thompson for their next buying/selling requirements.

W & K Hickey

I can't speak more highly of Greg. He was a saviour as I started my business 15 years ago, he took a risk on a young 25 year old when working in invoice financing and wrapped his service around with wisdom, guidance and moral support, which I have never forgotten. Greg is a family man with empathy and savvy which comes through in his persona. He has succeeded in two very difficult industries prior to real estate and I have no doubt his energy will take him to great heights in the competitive market of real estate. Those working with Greg will immediately feel his sincerity and passion, and hopefully that spells success for all!
