Manly Esplanade, Browns Bay

Geraldine and Mehran sold our beachfront property in Browns Bay. We chose them because they were genuine and thorough with their approach. Being in the local office and so well plugged in to the community, we were confident that they had a good feel for the local market and could advise us throughout the process. It was a family effort as Andre regularly joined them for open homes and they always believed in the property despite it being a tough market. Lastly, their client contact is impeccable - always keeping us up to date. Ultimately they brought us a house trade settlement which benefited all parties and left everybody delighted with the result.

The sale of the property was under emotional circumstance's - aging unwell parent - family home of over 30 years - POE living over four hours away - stuff of nightmares. Geraldine from Browns Bay Barfoot & Thompson was caring, compassionate, professional and noted but didn't get involved in the family dynamics. She was really special to us throughout the entire process, she also came to my Dad's funeral which I really appreciated. I would a million times recommend Geraldine Zareian to be the real estate agent of choice.

Bev Thomas

Oban Road, Browns Bay

We were very impressed with the professional and enthusiastic way Geraldine, Mehran and Andre took our home to the market. The comprehensive marketing campaign ensured we had busy open homes and we were very pleased to accept a pre auction offer. It was clear they knew the business as they were always one step ahead, anticipating our needs, communicating and supporting us through the process. They provide a personal service with just the right amount of attention, respect and helpfulness. We have no hesitation in recommending them, they are a fantastic team.

David and Val Rowlands

"Geraldine achieved a great result for us and we would recommend her to anyone looking for a trustworthy, reliable and knowledgeable real estate agent."

We first met Geraldine over 18 months ago when we were first contemplating moving house. We met her at someone else's open home and she was so professional with a warm, calm manner that we knew we had found the agent we would use when the time came. She kept in touch with us until we were ready to list our house and gave us solid advice around how to best present our house for sale. Throughout the auction process she was incredibly responsive, reliable and communicated clearly about next steps. We would highly recommend her.

Mizpah Road, Waiake

I listed my home on Mizpah Road recently with one of your agents, Geraldine Zareian who also helped me purchase another property in the Bacchus Apartments in Browns Bay. I have sold and purchased property with Geraldine in the past and was very satisfied with her service. I would like to say how impressed I was with the way that Geraldine handled the sale and purchase of my properties. She was very helpful and very professional in her approach and I appreciated her guidance and assurance throughout the whole process. As we know buying and selling properties is one of the most stressful things we do, especially with all the uncertainty in the current property market. However, Geraldine made the whole process much easier and I appreciated her support. I especially liked the way that Geraldine pays attention to detail, she is very knowledgeable as far as real estate goes. She was very positive and honest in her appraisals of the situation and always followed through on things until the final completion. I certainly valued her support throughout and her understanding of what I needed. I would certainly recommend her to any potential buyers, sellers and friends and wouldn't hesitate in contacting her again in the future.


Emlyn Place, Torbay

I was recommended to list my property with Geraldine through a few good friends who had dealt with Geraldine in the past and had good results. I took their advice and have been very successful in selling my property in record time and for the price that I wanted. Geraldine comes across as calm, reassuring and knows her stuff. Geraldine responds quickly to enquiries and explains the processes clearly. I would highly recommend Geraldine and look forward to working with her in the search for my new home.


Law Street, Torbay

We recently sold our house in Torbay through Geraldine, throughout the whole process she kept us informed and it really felt that she was working for us. She was easy to deal with and honest with us at all times. We both felt that Geraldine cared about us as people and not just as clients which is rare in our opinion from the real estate world.
Her experience and knowledge of the local area was also a key factor in pursuing every opportunity that presented itself. I would not hesitate to recommend Geraldine to any prospective seller looking for a hard working genuine real estate agent that gets the results you need to move on to your next property. Geraldine is a hard act to follow so would not hesitate to recommend her to my own friends and family.

East Coast Road, Browns Bay

Geraldine impressed me with her professionalism, attention to detail, punctuality, positive attitude and her patience to explain all my options for the marketing of my property, documents and procedures, input on preparing my unit for sale and her follow through with comparables and weekly feedback from open house visits.


Glenvar Road, Torbay

I chose Geraldine to sell my property as I had previously purchased the property from her 8 years ago, I found that she was very professional and went the extra mile to provide the information I required in order for me to purchase the property in a short amount of time as it was going to auction in 3 day's from when I first viewed the property. Equally she was very professional and gave 100
to getting my property SOLD at auction, great communication and represented all the features of the property to get the best outcome for the best price. I found Geraldine very honest, friendly and very approachable and would highly recommend her to anyone wishing to buy or sell.
"Thank you Geraldine for such a great job"
Kind Regards



"We honestly believe this is the way real estate should be done and will be in the future. Geraldine is a great example of how a great real estate salesperson should be".


Greenbough Road, Greenhithe

Faced with the challenge of selling my former family home due to a relationship property dispute, a number of days to prep the property for sale and only a 3 week marketing campaign due to a looming Auction date, all I can say is I couldn't have done it without Geraldine, she was an absolute super star.
With as little as 3 days to prepare the property to market, Geraldine took charge and managed the entire process seamlessly. She co-ordinated and arranged staging, and professional photography all within very tight deadlines and would never hesitate to meet contractors at the property to get jobs done, she dealt with all legal matters professionally, gave great advice and kept me well informed on all aspects of the campaign.
Geraldine has a very caring nature and was very easy to relate to, she is a true sales professional and was an absolute pleasure to deal with, she made me feel at ease through a very difficult process and I thank her very much for all her efforts all of which resulted in a great sales result under the hammer on Auction day.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Geraldine to anyone who is seeking a professional sales agent who listens, understands their needs, is hardworking and reliable and who has a caring and compassionate nature.


Bayside Drive, Browns Bay

Geraldine recently marketed our house in Browns Bay. This was over the Christmas period, and even though she had achieved getting a pre-auction offer which was acceptable to us prior to Christmas, she worked hard to introduce the property to other potential buyers in the hope of getting us a premium result. The auction was called in early to take place on 6 January 2016 and with several bidders on the day a premium was achieved. We were thrilled with the result. Geraldine was totally professional at all times - very calming and very positive - resulting in us feeling much less stressed as we went through the process of selling and buying.
Geraldine was superb in keeping us informed and in the loop at all times. This was much appreciated, and made us feel very comfortable and confident of the whole process. A great result was achieved by a very professional person. We would highly recommend
Geraldine to anyone who is looking to sell or buy property.

You were amazing throughout the whole sales process of my property at Nigel Road, Browns Bay. From the very beginning Geraldine was always very professional and straightforward in every aspect and always kept me well informed all the way through. This included the weekly updates and regular phone calls. Geraldine is truly a genuinely honest and sincere person and does not fit the preconceived real estate agent profile at all. Geraldine handled the whole process efficiently and professionally and the most importantly the result was amazing, the price achieved at the auction was way over our expectation. I will certainly recommend Geraldine to all my friends and contacts. Lee

County Road, Torbay

This was my first time selling a property and I didn't really know where to start. From our first meeting, Geraldine was professional and practical with what I needed to do. She gave me a timeline of what would happen and when - I found this essential to keeping everything on track and this also helped me not to feel overwhelmed.
Geraldine was able to work around my family, pet and work commitments which ensured the selling of my home caused the least interruption as possible to our daily life. After each Open Home, Geraldine would leave me feedback of people through and comments from prospective buyers
Geraldine presented several pre auction offers and at no time did I feel she was pushing me to accept or decline an offer. I feel that with her knowledge and expertise I was able to make an informed decision on these.
Prior to the Auction I thought I would be incredibly stressed, however because Geraldine had prepared me so well I actually felt relatively relaxed.
Come Auction Day and everything went off without a hitch!!! I feel confident that Geraldine marketed my home to achieve the best possible price which was above my reserve!!!
I would definitely recommend Geraldine to anyone thinking of selling.


"Being a Senior Citizen, I found Geraldine helpful beyond measure. Her enthusiasm and approach to all aspects of the sale were very professional, along with thoughtfulness and consideration."


"You listened and only showed us what we wanted in a house. We feel this is why you sold our house so quickly, because you listen to what the buyer wants. Your friendliness and honesty with us was much appreciated and we would not hesitate to recommend you to family and friends, and when we decide to move you will be our first phone call"

Debbie & David

"You created competition within a slow market and had interested parties before the property was even advertised. The marketing strategy was excellent. I was surprised at how easily the sale was concluded. I found your service to be extremely professional and flexible. I will highly recommend you to anyone who wants to buy or sell property in your area."


"After 34 years of bringing up a family and many happy memories it was a difficult time for us, and without the professional and kindly help of Geraldine and Mehran, it would have been a lot more stressful. The dedication and hard work was quite incredible. We are very thankful and would not hesitate to recommend this professional and very kind couple to deal with any real estate needs that may be required."

Bette and Warren

"Geraldine is different! She will actually listen to what Vendors have to say and take the appropriate action. She has a good work ethic combined with correct attitude to being an Agent i.e. work for the Vendor."


"We described to Geraldine exactly what we were looking for. She listened, understood and that was what she worked on. She showed us only properties which might suit us - so different from our previous experiences with real estate agents. Within a week, we'd found the perfect home for us.
Geraldine is professional, realistic, practical and appropriately friendly. We would certainly recommend her to anyone needing real estate advice and help"

Eileen and Kieron

"She was always available and approachable for our random concerns/questions and out of hours texts and emails. Her honesty and integrity allowed us to trust her fully - which meant a lot as it we were looking for our first home and were also pregnant with our first child.
She has an intimate knowledge of the local market and current property trends, a solid work ethic and she always put us first. We also had some good laughs with her which was important to us"

Leon and Zoe

"Due to financial reasons, I had to sell my home of 25 years, a process I was dreading.
As this was my first home, selling was a totally new experience for me. But by putting the Sale of the House in the capable hands of Geraldine Zareian, I couldn't have asked for a better experience.
Geraldine outlined everything for me before the house went onto the market, in a clear & concise manner. Any doubts or questions were quickly answered by her.
Fast & smooth, and an experience that was a pleasure all the way through!
I can highly recommend Geraldine to any prospective Vendor out there"


"Our dealings with Geraldine in the selling of our house have been amazing. She was like an old friend to us in her warm manner and great sense of humour, but always came off very professional and knowledgeable about selling in the local area. She always kept in touch with us and kept us informed every step of the way.
We feel that Geraldine's knowledge in her field and helpful strategies contributed to obtaining a great price for our property, and she made what could be a very stressful time in our lives simple and painless"

Richard and Leonie

"I had seen a few other agents, but when I meet Geraldine I knew she was going to be the best person to look after the sale of my home.
Geraldine, on her first visit, she was able to explain the entire process, draw me a time line, show me exactly how things would work, Geraldine has a tremendous "grasp" of the market and possesses that intuitive feeling as to what a house is really worth and how well it will sell, as I had no ideas of the process.
She made me feel very confident that she would be able to take this huge task off my shoulders, and manage it for me and she did and she did it well"


"We could not have asked for more, the professional manner in which you approached the sale of our property, gave us much reassurance and confidence, not mention confirming to us that you were the right person for the job.
Your straightforward manner, honesty and responsiveness to our questions and concerns throughout the sale was refreshing, likewise, we were extremely impressed with your local market knowledge, positive sales technique"

Mike and Pauline

"Throughout our dealings with her in marketing and selling our own property, we found her to be genuine and down-to-earth, whilst always professional, providing us with informed guidance on the best way to sell our home.
We enjoyed regular communication with her, and were always kept up to speed through clear and thorough feedback after open homes.
Nothing ever seemed to be too much trouble, and Geraldine always made time to answer our (many) questions"

Dean and Shirley

"We can wholeheartedly, without prompting, recommend Geraldine Zareian as being very professional but who is also friendly & approachable with a lovely manner.
Our home sold on the first open weekend at a price higher than we had hoped for.
You are a very good listener and have an excellent understanding of the local market.
You made it so easy, Geraldine, thank you"

Pat and Mike

"Geraldine is 'Simply the Best'."
