Hi Grant. Thanks for all your efforts to sell the house! The result tells the story. Thanks again and best regards.Colin
The care and concern shown to us when the process became difficult matched our expectations of Barfoot & Thompson. We found Grant to be helpful and professional as our agent and he hung in when the council made our job a long haul. I thank Grant and Henry for their good sense in getting a successful resolution for us.
Barfoot & Thompson gave us the service that has earned their rating as the best company in the world. Grant and Henry from the Milford branch showed empathy and were committed to achieving the best result, without being pushy, for us.Marty and Shirley
Grant Haworth could not have worked harder for us. He advised us on what he recommended to get the maximum value from our property and explained every detail of the marketing and selling of it. He was totally professional, helpful and went the extra mile for us. Through his hard work and dedication we managed to sell our home one week from the time it was listed. He could not have done a better job for us. Wonderful result and all thanks to Grant.Lyn and Wayne
Grant was the right choice for us to sell our property and would highly recommend him for anyone else. He worked extremely hard and got a brilliant result, especially in the time-frame that was set. Grant also kept us informed with all generated interest data from all areas of advertising and covered all the fine detail without losing sight of the main object. Grant took the load off our shoulders. Thank you Grant and well done.Chris and Cherie
We had the pleasure of meeting Grant at an open home and gave him our property to market due to his professional manner. Grant listens, is proactive and communicates well. Grant sold our property prior to auction, an outstanding result in a difficult market. We highly recommend Grant to sell your property. Carol & David Prescott
I write this letter as acknowledgement and appreciation of your exceptional and professional approach to the marketing of the above property that contributed to achieving a fantastic auction result. Your in-depth knowledge of the area, and the property market trends and movement, confirmed that the choice of agent was appropriate. It was reassuring that this property was marketed to the maximum possible exposure. The high level of service and attention to detail provided by you were simply outstanding. I was extremely impressed by and valued your constant commitment and ability to seize every possible opportunity to promote the property beyond the expected marketing standard. I felt that your marketing plan for the property was well constructed and executed. Your experience in this process helped me to understand the best marketing opportunities based on our agreed budget and the target audience. Your endeavours to ascertain knowledge of the unique aspects and historical points of interest relevant to the property, and incorporate that knowledge into the existing marketing plan utilising your network of contacts, demonstrated the depth of commitment to me as a client. I really did feel as if this property was your main focus, although I realise that you deal with numerous properties daily. Inviting my personal input to the promoting of the property by discussing the historical aspects and points of interest of the house made the sale process enjoyable and rewarding. You presented the property in the best possible manner at all times during open homes, inspections, auction day and all printed media, including the impressive article as "house of the week" in addition to the various internet websites. Your recommended listing price was in line with my own research of similar property sales results for the area. I appreciated being kept fully informed of all expressed interest in the property including the open for inspection results, potential buyers who registered interest in the property and all offers made prior to auction. As the property was tenanted during the sale process I felt that you managed and maintained the relationship with the tenants extremely well. The property was always immaculately presented prior to each open home and also at auction." Trudy Milligan
Dear Grant. Just a note in writing to thank you very much for your wonderful positive manner, your enthusiasm and complete professionalism. It was very much appreciated. We were very aware that you worked hard on our behalf with a great result. Thank you once again and I would recommend anyone looking to sell, to come to you guys.
I would not hesitate to recommend Grant to anyone considering selling their home. His professionalism and dedication to his clients is outstanding. I am so pleased I chose Grant as my real estate agent for the recent sale of my home. Right from our first meeting he was friendly, approachable, and went the extra distance to make the whole process as easy and as stress free as possible. He was honest, reliable, and always happy to give feedback after open homes. The excellent result at auction spoke for itself. Thank you so much Grant, and I wish you well in all your future sales. Julie Chandler
"My agent Grant Haworth was consistently professional, attentive, trustworthy and friendly. His marketing campaign produced a high level of interest in my property which eventually yielded a great result for me on auction day. Right from the beginning I felt that I was in good hands". Lisa
Dear Grant, We would like to take this opportunity to thank you so much for your outstanding commitment to marketing and selling out home. We congratulate you on your integrity, honesty and depth of knowledge of the market. We would not hesitate to recommend your exceptional approach to anyone buying or selling their home. Kind regards Heiko and Natalie Duensing
I recently had the pleasure of buying and selling with Grant Haworth. Grant was professional, focused and determined to sell my home and make the purchase of the next property as uncomplicated as possible. Grant would always make time to show me a new listing at short notice, he kept me up to date and listened to what I was looking for. I regard him as a friend, open and honest with a genuine "Can do Kiwi" approach. Grant coordinated the selling and buying process with ease and confidence. I highly recommend Grant as he is exceptional at his job. Raewyn Lemme
"Grant Haworth has been a pleasure to work with. During the marketing and sale of my property I found Grant not only a total professional, but courteous, cheerful, hardworking and understanding. I am delighted with the out-come of the sale of my property, which was a smooth and easy process for me. Gael O'Leary
"Grant stood out from the very beginning when interviewing agents for selling our apartment he just seemed to want the business that little bit more, and convinced me he'd give all his attention and efforts to getting the job done. Within 24 hours of contacting him, he made time for an appointment and had prepared some really useful research on the state of the local market, as well as the history of sales in my particular apartment complex. While providing me with a prompt valuation of my apartment, this extra information allowed me to objectively consider his advice, which at no point appeared to "over sell" the situation. He also helped connect me with someone who could dress the apartment and balcony up for the duration of the campaign, who took care of everything for me at a very reasonable cost.
All of these things just helped to make a very difficult task (particularly with a new baby) just that little bit easier.
Throughout what turned out to be quite a difficult campaign with a few un- foreseen issues (we had tenants in the apartment, with a long lease period remaining, and other apartments in the complex were also selling), Grant remained positive yet realistic and not only kept me informed of all progress and issues, but actively assisted with idea's and options to overcome some of them. He liaised with the tenants and kept them onside, while helping to negotiate a mutually beneficial agreement for them to vacate if necessary. The auction had quite a tight turnaround time from when I first met Grant, in order to sell prior to the Christmas period. Had grant not been so professional, persistent and helpful, I don't think I could have achieved what we did in the time-frame we did it - which in the end yielded a great result, and allowed us to purchase our own dream home soon after".Jane Calvert

"I have found Grant Haworth to be a most helpful and thoroughly reliable Agent. In my dealings with him over the past couple of years, he has proved to be conscientious, respectful, diligent and understanding. Frankly, I cannot imagine having better or more cheerful service while achieving most pleasing results. I would not hesitate to recommend Grant Haworth to anyone wishing to buy or sell property". Anna Robertson
Grant Haworth acted as our real estate agent in the sale of our first home. Grant made the selling process stress-free and acted on all matters on our behalf very promptly. We enjoyed his straightforward style, and his pre-auction advice proved priceless once the open homes were over. Grant was able to point us in the right direction with staging, presentation tips and wasn't afraid to stand his ground on important matters. We are very glad we listened to his experienced advice and have now achieved our reserve price and sold successfully on our first attempt. When we called Grant, he always had time to chat to us and was able to answer and advise us on many matters in which we were out of our depth. This personal touch was definitely the selling point for us, and we would readily recommend Grant and his skillset to our friends and family. Thank you for your hard work and helping us achieve our sale goal. Mitch Ammann
I am delighted to recommend Grant and Ann as a great real estate team. They recently sold my house in Takapuna after less than three weeks' marketing and I can only say they both made the process as easy as it could be, right from the beginning. They gave me advice on how to present my house and a realistic idea of the likely price range for my home. Because I felt they were being honest with me, I was prepared to trust them. Up till this point I had resisted the idea of going to auction because of two previous bad experiences which, resulting in no bidders and no sale, had been very costly to me. However, I decided to work with Ann and Grant to give the auction system one last try. Because of the skill they showed in managing the sales process from the beginning of the publicity campaign to the conclusion of the auction, I achieved a price just below the CV. This was an excellent result in the current flat market and one I would not have achieved without their advice, particularly on how to manage the potentially tense situation of negotiating on the auction floor. This was the point at which I felt particularly well supported and was so glad I had chosen agents I could trust. I really appreciated the way Grant and Ann kept me fully informed about how the sales campaign was progressing, providing detailed reports and keeping in close touch with frequent emails and texts. They also called in each week for an open and relaxed discussion about how the campaign was progressing. No detail in the campaign was allowed to slip. Grant made sure I was fully aware of buyer feedback, both negative and positive, so that progress towards the auction was based on a "no surprises" policy, clearly to the advantage of both buyer and seller.
I appreciate Grant and Ann's honesty, expertise, friendliness and helpfulness and recommend them wholeheartedly. Helen Sturm - Karaka St, Takapuna
"Right from the start Grant and Ann were very professional, knowledgeable, friendly and helpful at every contact. I knew if I needed any information they were just a phone call away and they were always courteous and respectful. Grant gave me support in finding local tradesmen when I was preparing my house for sale while Anne showed me the best way to present my house once it went on the market. I think I had the best team possible and credit them with the very quick sale of my house at a price that far exceeded my expectations. They are a great credit to Barfoot & Thompson and I wish them every success in the future." Heather Llewellin
"As stated previously it has been fabulous dealing with an agent who has been very up front, honest and approachable as well as intent on making sure all parties are looked after in a process that can sometimes test the best of us. I will utilise you for any future real estate needs without hesitation and have already expressed my belief in your competence to both family and friends. We were thrilled at our outcome and thought you got the best result that could be had. Thanks again, pop in for celebratory drink". Alison and Paul Simmons
"We would like to thank you for your outstanding service in the sale of our property. It has been a positive and pleasurable experience for us. The whole process of the sale went smoothly and stress-free. And finally, we were happy with the sale price. We appreciated the personalised attention we received from Mr. Haworth. He was very professional as he kept us well informed every couple of days throughout the sale process. I highly recommend Mr. Grant Haworth to everyone that is considering buying or selling a property".Thomas and Savatoula Zandes
"I am writing today to say what a professional job Grant is doing. The week prior the Auction I had missed the open and I rang Grant, he came back and opened up, his service was second to none, I would have to say he went beyond the call of duty. It was a pleasure doing business with him".Nick Shortland
"You are certainly one of the good estate agents out there, if I have any referrals I'll certainly send them to you".Carl Wallace
After talking to various Real Estate agents in the Birkenhead/Northcote area we opted to use Grant and Steve market the property. Knowing that the property had been a rental for some time and was starting to look tired, but also offered a lot of options from either refurbishment to complete redevelopment meant that both Grant and Steve were very realistic and honest in their approach to the sales process. They presented various options and carefully outlined the pros and cons of the various sales processes. The end result was that we had good interest at the auction from multiple parties with the final sell price well up on expectations. I would happily recommend Grant and Steve. They know the area, kept me informed of the sales process and any developments and achieved a very pleasing result. Thank you, Grant and Steve, for all your assistance.Ian Herald
"Grant Haworth was professional and pleasant throughout the sale and settlement of our property. His initiative, expertise and attention to detail were helpful when preparing our property for an ultimately exceptional auction result. Grant continued to provide valuable support beyond the auction day despite several difficulties that were experienced during an extended settlement period".
"I am very pleased with the great result that you were able to achieve in difficult market conditions. Many thanks for your hard work and professionalism on this sale. I really appreciated that you provided prompt and clear feedback and kept me informed throughout the whole process, this was very important considering the sale was made whilst I was living overseas. I would wholeheartedly recommend you to anyone looking for a committed and professional estate agent".
"I recently sold an investment flat and Grant Haworth was the real estate agent who was in charge of the sale. I have nothing but high praise for his hard work, dedication and communication abilities throughout the campaign leading up to the sale of our property.
He worked so hard to get the sale, going beyond the usual boundaries set by more jaded real estate agents. For example, Grant used all his skills and experience to maximize the number of potential purchasers to view the apartment, including both local residents and disappointed bidders for similar properties in the area. We received several responses from this multi-faceted approach, and ultimately the sale went to a daughter looking for a first home with her mother helping with the finances after seeing a similar property and then Grant recommended and showed them our property.
Grant's great strength is that he pro-actively introduced people who would be interested in this property for a viewing and maintained full contact with them and us every day. Everybody was kept fully in the loop thanks to Grant.
We sold the flat to these lovely people (after Grant politely fought off several ridiculous offers from opportunistic investors) and we met the mother and there was a great deal of mutual congratulations from both parties. Grant had created a win-win situation for both the buyers and sellers.
I recommend him highly as he is such an inventive and pro-active agent who works so hard to get a result."
