Gopika is an extremely honest and hardworking real estate agent. For us, she sold our house in one week of listing when (the) previous agent could not sell it for 3 months. She kept us updated on a daily basis (with) any developments in regards to our property. She has the genuine ability to spot the buyer interest and convert that into an offer for her clients. I would definitely recommend her real estate services to anybody who is thinking of selling.Vidhata Kulkarni
We found our agent Gopika Kaku (New Lynn) very professional with the marketing of our property. The advice and recommendations she gave before we put the property on the market were relevant and worthwhile. At all times, we felt she was working for us - the vendors - and genuinely had our best interests at heart. Her communication with updates and feedback was regular and reliable. She even went the extra mile and put our bins out! We would certainly recommend her personally to anyone looking to sell their property. We also thought the pricing for marketing / auction with Barfoot and Thompson was very reasonable.Glenda Brooks
"We were recently at cross roads of our lives, where our specific lifestyle and financial needs pushed us to sell our existing property and upgrade to a newer low maintenance property with an income option. We were made aware of Gopika through our past dealings with B&T and right from the outset the service provided by her was excellent. Gopika met us promptly on contact to understand our needs and motivations. She acted openly and honestly and ensured our expectations aligned to market realities and made us aware of these. She then provided a catered strategy based on our needs, as to the best option to follow for the sale of our existing house. Further to this, she took the time to understand our needs for the new residence we were looking to buy and determine the motivators behind this.
Her communication was exceptional, timely, polite and professional throughout the process. We are happy customers and that based on Gopika's diligent, catered, professional and personalised service. Thank you Gopika for making our dreams come true in so many more ways than just transactional buying and selling of a house."
"Gopika is a very sincere, honest and professional person. Her enthusiasm to find buyers and follow up with leads was exceptional and ultimately assisted in getting a price for the property at the very high end of market expectations. She is very easy to deal with, easily contacted, and answers or seeks to answer any questions we had without hesitation. I would recommend Gopika to anyone hoping to receive personable, professional assistance with selling their home. Thank you very much Gopika for your time invested in our house sale."Kevin
"We are quite pleased to write a testimonial for Gopika Kaku. We came in touch with Gopika when we were looking to buy a house for ourselves and on meeting we felt a genuine sincerity in her. Upon getting impressed, we actually entrusted the task of selling our house to her. Gopika proved our intuition and our thoughts about her to be true. She did the work of selling our house enthusiastically at all times and her sincerity was apparent from her constant follow-ups with the prospective buyers. She gave her piece of mind about various aspects of selling and the marketing strategies to be adopted and at the same time took our point on board with an open mind. Her relentless approach, meticulous work and punctuality - all resulted in us selling the house on the Auction day itself. We are quite pleased with Gopika's service and would be happy to refer her to our friends & colleagues."Amit Shah & Teena Shah
"Gopika has been an absolute pleasure to deal with. We've dealt with several real estate agents in the past & we can unequivocally say that Gopika has been the best by far. She was very professional & guided us through the entire process of selling our home & even helped us find our dream home. Never once did we feel pressured into making any decision & she was always available to answer our questions. We wouldn't hesitate to use her services again & have already recommended her to family & friends."Wayne
"Thank you for all your help and efforts in the sale of our property. You have been of great help and the service you provided us was very informative and made everything seem so much easier. I wish you all the very best in all your future endeavours."Pinky
"We attempted to sell our 3 bedroom unit in Mt Roskill privately. At the same time, Gopika was marketing a similar property 2 doors away. After visiting her listing, she was very helpful in giving me advice about how to negotiate and sell. When our private sale was not successful, we of course turned to Gopika. We listed with her on a Tuesday and within a couple of days, everything was sorted. Photos were taken, the billboard was up and open homes started that weekend. In actual fact, we only needed one weekend of open homes, as Gopika obtained a pre-auction offer for us that following week. Knowing our circumstances, she negotiated a much higher price than we could have on our own. In summary, she kept us informed EVERY step of the way, was very professional, yet approachable. I would highly recommend her services to those who are looking to list with an agent."Katrina Bratton
"This is just to let you know that I am very happy with Gopika as a real estate agent. I was looking for a new house. She determined what it was I really needed and lined up 8 homes to view. She was interested in every detail that would benefit me. After buying a home through Gopika I decided to list my previous house. She went the extra mile and kept me updated with everything that was happening. I have had bad experiences in the past but Gopika changed my view again of Real Estate salespeople. She took good care of us from start to finish. I would recommend Gopika to my friends looking to buy or sell a home."Goong
"We would like to thank you for your service throughout the entire house buying process.
You are a very enthusiastic Real Estate agent, who is more than willing to put the hours and effort in to find the perfect home for your customer, no matter how long it can take.
We enjoyed your professionalism, which made us confident throughout the time we dealt with you. We thoroughly recommend you to anyone who is looking to buy a home.
We wish you all the best and once again many thanks."
"It is with great pleasure I make a testimonial to Gopika Kaku who was most helpful in aiding me in a purchase of property recently. I first met Gopika at the Open Homes for this property where she was most informative, helpful with my questions and sincere. Although she had a role of looking after the vendor she was equally understanding and accommodating of my needs. My family also visited this property including my aged mother and this Gopika was mindful of and showed much care and kindness. In my decision to buy, Gopika was instrumental in organising a meeting to explain further the auction process and answer any questions I may have had. An additional help was transport to and from the auction room venue and professionalism throughout.
Many thanks for making the whole exercise run smoothly considering the delicate situation."
"I wanted to say big thank you to Gopika.
We had an excellent service received from Gopika. She was there the time we wanted to see the property and also took us to the properties we wanted to see. She is a great sales person with excellent human touch which is so hard to find in Aucklanders.
She is a good asset to your company. I will be highly recommend to my friends and family. Once again pass my thanks to her and I will look upon her when I need future real estate service. "
"The following is my recommendation to anyone wishing to purchase or sell a home, to use the services of the exceptional sales agent Gopika Kaku.
It was at the beginning of March 2010 after my accident that my wife and my parents realised that we would have to find a new house to cater for my resulting disabilities. Whilst I was still in hospital they started scanning the housing market looking for the type of home they thought I would require, viewing over a hundred of them before my release home. It would be fair to say that by the time I got home the three of them were sick to death of looking at unsuitable houses and had been through a range of different agencies sales staff. What had become evident though was that one company had an unusual sales agent. That company was Barfoot and Thompson.
My wife and I had purchased 2 of our previous homes through Barfoots but have used other agencies as well. It was interesting that one particular agent had stood out from the rest so I was pleased to meet her when I was well enough to assume the mantle of home finder.
The type of home we needed unfortunately evolved as we came to understand my new restrictions. This resulted in our final choice being far different from the original brief outlined to each agent. Our successful purchase of our new home was the result of an 8 month, day by day search of the Auckland real estate market. One agent was still beside us at the end. That she also began our journey with us is amazing. All the other agents fell by the wayside after quite short times, obviously seeing the task as too hard and arduous.
Gopika's honesty and diligence make her shine out like a beacon above the rest. My family have forged a strong friendship with this very special woman and she has earned our continuing respect and admiration. Our advice, to anyone wanting an impeccable, honest, hard working and enjoyable agent to assist them with a real estate transfer, is look up this woman as she is a breath of fresh air to the industry.
Anyone requiring testimony to this recommendation is welcome to contact us anytime."
