My results are superior and service is simply 'Second to none.'
I have been selling real estate for over 27 years and am married to a New Zealander. We are proud parents of four children, two boys and two girls. Before coming to New Zealand, I practiced as a medical surgeon where I was the doctor in charge. It was my genuine desire to help people which led me to this career path in real estate. Many have said my thoroughness and precision which stems from my medical training is evident when I market homes.
In Epsom and the surrounding suburbs there is a large Chinese community. When it comes to negotiating cross culturally - I am simply hard to beat which is why so many people have bought and sold property with me for over 27 years.
I currently remain ranked #1 for Barfoot & Thompson, Epsom. I have my own website and have a 24/7 free number. Working with me is a full-time administrative assistant and five sales assistants, so no calls or emails regarding your property remain unanswered. When you list with me, your property gets more exposure as I host a very popular Chinese Property TV programme on Chinese Freeview channel 28 (Property Talk) which features my new listings at no extra cost to you. This screens twice and is also broadcast on radio channel AM936.
I work together with my wife, Laura McAuley. Previously she was a teacher in charge at one of the largest high schools in Auckland. Our ability to constantly achieve beyond our vendors' expectations has meant that much of our work is by word of mouth or by way of referral.
In my first year of real estate I won the title of 'Rookie of the Year' and since then I've been a consistent top achiever winning numerous annual awards including #1 Salesperson for Barfoot & Thompson Epsom. Prior to moving to Barfoot & Thompson in August 2000, my volume of sales qualified me to become a member of the Real Estate Company's Million Dollar Club.
'Our aim is not just to sell but to create customers for life.'
George was recommended to me by the company that valued my Onehunga property. I found him to be friendly, knowledgeable and very helpful. He totally put my mind at ease right from the start as he advised me exactly what to do and how he would market the property. George's experience really came to the fore once some pre-auction offers came in. Once a high enough offer had been placed, George advised that we should accept, and go to auction straight away, which we did. The results of the auction were amazing and are a testament to George's ability to read the market. We went $800,000 over the pre-auction offer. I can't thank George enough for his hard work, dedication and expertise in bringing my property to the market and for being able to achieve such a high price at a time made especially difficult due to the Lockdown.I would not hesitate for one second to use George again, or indeed to recommend him to anyone else looking to get the best price for their property.Jamie Price - Arthur St, Onehunga
My husband and I selected George Fong to be our real estate salesperson after meeting him at a house we bought through him at Barfoot & Thompson. We were particularly impressed with his professionalism, knowledge of the property, and nothing was ever a problem.
After spending time researching salespeople in area, we decided George was the best salesperson to sell our house. We particularly liked the fact that George listened to everything we had to say and the special requirements we wanted during the open homes, were not an issue at all. He reported back every Sunday night with the sales information. He made the process very easy at a particularly stressful time and the result was so much better than we hoped for, thanks to having so many qualified buyers at the auction.
Thank you very much George. We are very happy you sold our house in three weeks in order for us to pay for our new house…and live happy ever after. A perfect result!Rachel & Paul - Main Highway, Ellerslie
We are writing this letter to record our deep appreciation for the extensive role played by George Fong of Barfoot & Thompson Epsom, in the listing, marketing and auction of our house on Horoeka Ave Mt Eden. George worked exceptionally hard, both to get the positive result we achieved but most importantly, George worked to reduce the stress we faced in getting the house ready to market and at auction before last Christmas. We faced a very tight time-frame.
George recommended that some specific work be undertaken before we listed the property and took it upon himself, at no additional expense to us, to oversee the work and ensure it was of a high standard. This was most appreciated by my wife and I, because we live in Wellington and were unable to oversee the work.
George clearly had extensive knowledge of the market and a deep appreciation of what prospective buyers were looking for in that market. George marketed the property effectively and in a relatively short time-frame, had several clients who were seriously interested in the property. One family were originally from China and George was able to work closely with them. Bidding was competitive at the auction and we achieved a price we were happy with.
My wife Robyn and I could not be more pleased with George’s high degree of professionalism, his extensive knowledge and skill as a salesperson and most importantly, his positive and supportive relationship with us throughout the process.Neil Martin & Robyn Fowler- Horokea Ave, Mt Eden
I was aware of George Fong as a successful salesperson in our Epsom office but had not met him. Together with my brother I arranged to meet George at one of his Open Homes as we had a property to sell in Epsom. Both my brother and I were confident that George was a professional who would quietly get on with the job and get it done. Outside, another open home attendee told us that she had just employed George and praised him highly and said he was a salesperson that got the job done without, in her words “all the noise”.
George is a quiet, highly competent professional who gets the job done without “all the noise“. George under-promises and over-delivers; we were absolutely delighted with the result he achieved for us with five competing bidders at Auction.
Thank you George.D Carrel - St Andrews Rd, Epsom
I have know George Fong from when he acted as our real estate salesperson to assist in the sale of a family property in King George Avenue in Epsom. I found George to be extremely professional in all dealings that I had with him. He knew his market which led to a very prompt and successful sale of the property. I would recommend George to any future clients that he may be dealing with.C M McIlroy-King - George Ave, Epsom
Yesterday, as one of the beneficiaries of a trust that was selling a property on King Edward Ave, Epsom, I was totally impressed with the Barfoot & Thompson's auction process that resulted in an excellent sale price being achieved on our behalf but more particularly, I was very grateful and impressed by your salesperson, George Fong. From our first introduction to him four weeks ago, I felt reassured that George knew exactly what he was doing. He gave us the confidence to proceed with him as our salesperson and to follow almost all his recommendations throughout the three week campaign. He was always cheerful and positive and he made the process very easy for us by dealing with the complexities of selling a property that is Limited As To Parcels and subject to four existing tenancies and organising the photography and open homes around those lessees. I cannot speak highly enough of George. It was a pleasure dealing with him and I would recommend him highly to friends and family looking for a top salesperson in the area.
Kind regardsVicky Ingram - King Edward Ave, Epsom
We recently listed a central Auckland property for sale with George Fong from Barfoot & Thompson. George took the time to listen and was professional in communicating and providing information and documents which were required for selling the property. He provided an accurate assessment of the property and achieved a very good result for us at auction in a short time-frame. I found George to be hardworking and very easy to work with. As we were living in New Plymouth, he got on with the job and communicated with reports and by phone when required. I can highly recommend George as a salesperson.Johanna Jackson - Margot St, Epsom
George Fong was super helpful and easy to deal with.... even during some the most complicated times. George was great to deal with. Very clear and concise. He made the whole process very smooth....... even when the world around us was very bumpy."Nicholas Hawkins - Almorah Rd, Epsom
We needed to sell our place as we had committed to purchasing our new home. The decision to ask George was an easy one as our friends had used him to sell their property and got a no-hassle sale with a good outcome.
George kept us informed at every stage of our sale with a result that was up to our expectations. So now if anyone inquires who they should use to sell their property/home, without hesitation I would recommend George Fong and his team.Bevin & Jan McCutcheon - Campbell Rd Royal Oak, Auckland
"We recently sold our house in Epsom and were fortunate to have the expertise of George and Laura Fong. We interviewed five Estate Agencies prior to choosing who we would give our property to and this Team outshone all others with the confidence they instilled in us regarding our property. Their knowledge of the market, the sharing of our property with other salespeople from within Barfoot & Thompson offices, and the additional benefit of George sharing our listing over Chinese TV, ensured we had strong Open Homes over the three weekends building up to our Auction, and numerous inspections throughout the week. George kept us updated with feedback. We were fortunate to get an excellent result at auction. Thank you George, we highly recommend."Peter & Rosie Buchanan - Selwyn Rd, Epsom
Thank you very much for your excellent service in respect of the auction earlier this week. Your professionalism and accurate advice as to how to proceed during the campaign was an essential part of the success of the auction. We are so pleased to have had you as the listing salesperson.
We will recommend you to our clients who have properties to sell in the inner Auckland area.
Best wishes and thanks.R J Connell - Connell & Connell, Partner
"George's achievements are truly outstanding, a consistent top performer for Barfoot & Thompson and always in our top 10. Every year George continues to improve on the previous year, even when the market has been flat. His enthusiasm is contagious and his dedication an inspiration. George's patience, willingness to listen and understand people's needs contributes greatly to his success. George gets results! I have no hesitation in recommending George whether you are buying or selling a home."Pam Erceg - Epsom Branch Manager
"George - a totally professional service from appraisal through to sale. Thank you for your honest approach. An agent I can trust."Philip Dolby
"Thank you George for your total dedication to the sale of our property. Didn't expect it to sell so fast. I will recommend you to all I know wanting to buy or sell a house in the future."Catherine and Jim Arnold
"Once I saw your advert I knew that's how I wanted my property marketed. It's not often you can find someone who can provide such a good marketing programme (in English and Chinese). You really do get results. I will introduce all my friends looking for a house to you."Peter Yang
