"Grant and Moira have been an absolute pleasure to work with. We greatly appreciated the time and energy they invested in helping us to find our first home. They were always incredibly easy to work with; clear, honest and very responsive. They know the market well and could give us insights that ensured we were well informed before we went to auction. We couldn't recommend them more, for sellers or buyers - they have both restored our faith in real estate agents!"Jemma & Jason - Meadowbank
"We are still pinching ourselves over the wonderful deal Grant & Moira Marshall engineered for us. We were novice property sellers - having lived in our much loved home for over 30 years. But with Grant & Moira's expert knowledge and guidance we came through the auctioning of our house unscathed.
We felt looked after and supported at all times because Moira & Grant were always available to answer queries and provide information on the intricacies of the transactions needed to sell a house in the present climate. Thanks to them, we are moving to a delightful but smaller property for the remainder of our retirement.
If you are thinking about selling your property we can sincerely recommend Moira & Grant as your real estate agents - we feel their professional approach, caring and friendly attitude will ensure the best possible results for you."
"Grant and Moira made the process of selling our home very easy and straightforward with their friendly pragmatic approach. We found them to be honest and they communicated well throughout the process. They were easy to deal with and it gave us peace of mind knowing that two people were conducting the Open Homes. They helped us with advice on the presentation of our property, and Moira used her photography skills taking some lovely night-time photos of the tennis court and outdoor areas to add to the other professional images of our property at no extra cost. We were extremely happy with Grant and Moira's service and the whole Barfoot & Thompson experience and would be very happy to recommend them to anyone considering selling a property."G and M Murdoch - Glendowie
"Grant has looked after our interests in all manners to a very high level of professionalism. He is still looking after our other needs in the property market after the selling of our property as we trust him. I can't recommend him enough to others, as I found him really good in his dealings with us.
It would be hard to find someone of his calibre out there in the market place with your interest at heart, in selling or buying for your property."
"Our agent Grant Marshall, was honest about our property and steered us in the right direction. He also took care of everything as a turnkey operation as we were out of Auckland and left us to focus on our new lifestyle! Brilliant!"John Friedel
"Hi David, (Branch Manager St Heliers)
My fiancé and I recently sold our first home through you at 58A Sayegh St. The property was listed by Grant Marshall and I am touching base to thank you for your service. Grant was spot on, we picked him as we had seen a couple of listings he had around us and thought he was the man for the job. We could not have hit the nail more on the head if we tried. Grant was fantastic, he is a realist and did not let myself or my fiancé get too carried away and kept us grounded in our thought process while still letting us dream. He coached us through our first sale perfectly and we have been singing your branches praises.
Coming from a sales role myself I was very impressed with Grant and the full team in St. Heliers. We massively appreciate the constant follow up and notes from you along the sales road. I always appreciate great service and I feel like it is not commented on enough so please pass on my glowing review to Grant and your staff as you made the process effortless (except for the cleaning of our house every morning)."
I had a phone call this morning from Robert (Bob) Bunting who was speaking on behalf of himself and his wife, Caron
He waxed lyrical about you and the level of service provided up to the point of sale of his property yesterday for a figure (he told me what it was) well over what he expected to get for their home. He was emotional and overwhelmed by how professional and supportive you were throughout the marketing programme and how exceptional all Barfoot & Thompson staff were - he talked about salespeople viewing the property and how good they were, he talked about the Head Office, Branch, and Auction staff - he was just a very happy and grateful man all round.
Well done Grant - proud of you and thrilled that the result was so exceptional."
"When it came time for the disposal of our family home after our Mother passed away our lawyer told us to contact at least three real estate companies and then choose one to market the house. The first one we contacted was Grant Marshall from Barfoot & Thompson, St Heliers and after meeting and listening to him we did not bother to contact anyone else. Grant new the area well and was extremely friendly and helpful right through out the process of marketing and selling the property. Grant kept us fully updated at all times and when it went to Auction we were thrilled at the outcome. We would have no hesitation in recommending Grant to anyone that was about to put their house on the market."Faye Grey
"Grant was our Salesperson for the marketing and auction of our home on Melanesia Rd, Kohimarama.
We found Grant not only a very professional Agent but also positive and pragmatic, managing other issues related to the sale like dealing with five separate tenants while we were away from
Auckland all the time during the marketing and the auction."
"Buying or selling a home is never a simple thing. Every sale is unique and each brings its own problems but following the sudden death of my step father I was faced the very complex sale of the family home.
Firstly the Public Trust as executor had an interest in the home as did the insurance company who held a reverse mortgage and then there were the family interests to be looked after. There were personal possessions and furniture to be cleared, gardens and lawns to be tended, repairs and cleaning to be organised and with me living thousands of kilometres away in a remote part of South Australia these considerations seemed enormous. That was until a friend who knew of Grant Marshall led me to email him and that simple email led to perhaps the most remarkable relationship I have experienced with a real estate agent.
Not only did Grant sell the family home in and extraordinarily short space of time and at a price I never really expected to receive but he expertly juggled the interests of the Public Trust, the insurance company and my family and quickly and quietly sorted out all of the other problems as they arose, even down to organising neighbours to look after the garbage and finding a home for the family cat.
Looking back it is hard to believe that the entire thing was done without a hitch and solely by email and telephone for it was only long after the sale that I eventually got to meet Grant.
To anyone considering employing Grant Marshall as an agent perhaps all I can say is that in him I met someone who I could, and did, trust implicitly and who did, without question, extend himself to and past any expected limits in looking after my interests."
