Honesty, Integrity & Enthusiasm drive my Success
For as long as I can remember, I’ve had an interest in real estate. Identifying properties with potential is a particular skill of mine. When I meet and engage with my clients I can quickly present ideas for them to consider.
My first job on leaving school was in the textile industry. I was lucky enough to travel the world developing ranges and marketing and selling to clothing manufacturers. Eventually, my wife and I successfully ran our own clothing company for 13 years, at home here in New Zealand. Next, I spent a few years in the finance industry before I heard the call of real estate.
Whether it’s the clothing business, finance or real estate, business is about people. Listening and understanding a situation fully, gets your mind ticking with ideas. My professional and easy manner puts my clients at ease. When my clients know they are being listened to, they’re receptive to my suggestions and have faith that my plan for them will have a positive outcome.
When I’m not working I like to spend time with my family. I’m also a keen golfer (they say you meet the nicest people on the golf course), and being a member of a club provides a network of contacts for both buyers and sellers.
Properties sold to date in Parnell, Mt Eden and the City Centre total 11. I don’t restrict myself to any one area – I market and sell anywhere there is property to be sold.
If you are thinking of buying selling or you’d just like to talk about the state of the market, I’m always keen to chat. Give me a ring at Barfoot & Thompson Parnell and we’ll get things started!
We found Greg to be extremely professional and a great communicator. He kept us fully informed from the time of listing right through to settlement and achieved an excellent result for us. Highly recommended.
We found Greg to be extremely professional and informative. His attention to detail and follow-ups resulted in nine bidders present in the auction room which ended in a result we were more than happy with. Thanks Greg.Richard & Julie Bishop
Greg worked with me through many months as I attempted to purchase a property for my daughters. Through all that time, Greg was professional, positive and thorough in his approach to the purchase of a property. He was always looking for properties that met our criteria and helping us through the due diligence process. His honesty and openness about each property we were looking at was a major factor in our being able to finally purchase a property that completely met our requirements.Paul Spackman
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!
