After finishing my education in civil engineering I started my successful own business for 23 years and developed into a sales career by joining to Barfoot & Thompson to work with my wife Elizabeth Khosravi .
I achieved great rewards having my own business and used those skills to work with different companies and running strong and growing teams.
With my wife Elizabeth working as a team, we bring a new approach to real estate which combines the essentials of negotiating, communicating, industry experience and marketing to the table for the benefit of all involved in the process of real estate transactions.
Having also set up and grown a successful business with a global clientele, I can draw on international business and real estate experience and transfer these skills into the New Zealand property market.
Once you have selected us to work for you, we will prove without a doubt that you have made the right decision.
Working as a team with Elizabeth, our strength is extremely powerful and effective. We have sold many homes in the eastern area, have a long list of contacts (clients, customers, developers and investors) and have comprehensive local knowledge. Having weathered many property cycles, we have also developed an entrenched understanding of the market, which we are happy to share to educate their clients.
We offer to give you our full commitment, professional service and will cater to your individual needs. Whether buying and selling your property, we will endeavour to make the process as stress-free and enjoyable as possible.
Clients find our depth of understanding of the local market invaluable. Together, we work extremely hard to provide information, and clients value the feedback and advice we give throughout the sales process. We make a very effective team.
Excellent, friendly, high level of service.Shane Anthony Smith
It is our immense pleasure to recommend Elizabeth Khosravi and Hamid Farid of Barfoot & Thompson as real estate salespeople for any individual or family searching for the ideal home for their unique situation.
We found this “team of two – the power of two” really very powerful, honest, energetic, up-front, professional with a thorough knowledge of real estate in the Eastern suburbs. We recently sold a brand-new property in a new development with the help of Elizabeth and Hamid. It was a bit unfortunate that the day this listing went live, COVID-19 lockdown was announced. Even though there were no open homes or buyers visiting the property, this team kept working behind the scenes. They maintained regular connection with us via phone and video calls. Elizabeth came up with great marketing plans which were tailored to sell our property. Even when the staging company didn’t have enough cushions for the lounge in a family area, she was quick to bring some cushions from her home. We have never seen any salesperson doing this. This shows this team takes personal interest in any listing they take and work round the clock.
Though we've known this team for the last 11 years but never did business with them as we always used Ray White and Harcourts. They have now proved that this team is more professional and hardworking than other real estate salespeople.
They take all the stress on behalf of the vendor. This was experienced by us when there was a query from the buyer and we were not sure. Elizabeth’s reply to us was “Please don’t stress. Any client working with me shouldn’t be stressed, put it on my shoulders and I will sort it out”. These comments took so much pressure off our shoulders.
Thank you very much Elizabeth and Hamid. You guys did an amazing job. Because of this “team of two” we will be using Barfoot & Thompson as our first choice in real estate matters always in future.Pawan and Ashu Pathela
I highly recommend Elizabeth Khosravi and Hamid Farid. Their professionalism throughout the sale of our property in Pakuranga was extraordinary. From signing up to sell, through to settlement and everything in between, was stress-free. Elizabeth is an amazing communicator and she was always readily available any time of the day or night, to answer questions and put our minds at ease. Selling during Covid could have been difficult, yet it wasn't thanks to this amazing duo. Finding very competitively priced tradesmen was made easy thanks to their contacts. We needed a carpet layer and a water blaster for roof, fences and driveway, at a time we couldn't do it ourselves due to Auckland water restrictions.Jenny & Kevin Hood
I would like to thank Elizabeth and Hamid for a great job done on presenting my home for sale. Elizabeth went above and beyond to make sure my questions were answered; great photos were taken and gave me a lot of feedback on open homes.
We were going to Auction on 24th April. Due to the announcement of the lockdown, Elizabeth contacted me and said it would not go ahead, discussed about going negotiable which I decided to do. She pulled out all the stops to get offers on the table. Arrived at my home on the evening of the 23rd. We met at 8.30 pm as an offer was reached, signed and completed. It was a rush but got it to solicitors before we went into lockdown on the 24th.
Elizabeth and Hamid have previously sold four properties for us and we've purchased two. I’ve gone back to her as she does a great job.
Elizabeth has been great, checking that I am well. Now waiting for the lockdown to end so I can move on and the new owners can enjoy my beautiful home.
Thanks Elizabeth and Hamid for a great job.Natalie Dawson
When deciding to sell my property the best decision I made was having agents Elizabeth & Hamid from Barfoot and Thompson Pakuranga.
I found them both to be honest and hardworking, always going the extra mile to help me
Giving good advice on how best to present the property from their extensive knowledge of the Auckland property market.
They were totally focused on getting the best outcome on selling my property for me.
I live overseas, but Elizabeth kept me regularly informed (sometimes daily) and at all hours, on all aspects of preparing for auction, staging photo's and open house feedback from prospective buyers
Property went on market and within 5 days I had a pre auction offer. On auction day there was 14 bidders. Property sold way above pre auction offer. I believe this was achieved because of the excellent work and time put in by Elizabeth & Hamid
I cannot thank you both enough for the help you gave me in selling my property.
To anyone wanting to sell a property with an agent, that they can put full trust in to do the best they can for them I would recommend Elizabeth & Hamid.
Elizabeth and Hamid are extremely hardworking and diligent professionals who did an amazing job selling our home. Right from the start they put us at ease, and helped us though the whole process ensuring any stress was completely eradicated.
Their communication throughout was second to none. They gave 100%, dedicating their time and energy into getting the best price for our property, providing excellent advice every step of the way from house staging to open homes and beyond.
We can’t thank Elizabeth and Hamid enough for their dedication and professionalism. We most definitely highly recommend this lovely couple to everyone who is selling their home.
Finally a big thank you to you both
Kind regardsJohn & Julie
We would like to say a big thank you to Elizabeth for her time and commitment as our agent.
Living overseas and deciding to sell our unit in NZ was a little daunting for us, but having met Elizabeth and Hamid, it made the entire process very easy.
Elizabeth and Hamid are an excellent team to work with. Their attention to detail, professionalism, reliability, communication skills etc made the entire process stress free for us.
Elizabeth went the extra mile in all areas and she is an extremely well organized lady who is passionate about what she does with a warm heart. Their efforts exceeded our expectations.
Thank you again Elizabeth and Hamid - the sale went very smoothly and we would be hard pressed to find such a good agent in Brisbane.
We wish you and Hamid all the very best for the future and if you ever make a trip to Brisbane we would love to catch up with you.
Elizabeth & Hamid, recently sold our Onehunga house. This is the second house they have sold for us. They worked there butts off to sell our latest house, and have really gone above and beyond to sell our house for us, as the house we sold was by no means an easy house to sell. We have found them amazingly professional and trustworthy and would throughly recommend them to anyone looking to get amazing results.Josh McLaren
It is with pleasure that we write a reference for Elizabeth Khosravi and Hamid Farid of Barfoot & Thompson.
Elizabeth and Hamid are an excellent team, and are by far the best real estate agents we have ever dealt with. They gave superb attention to detail, marketing our house to its full potential. Follow-up with clients was excellent, and they showed a great understanding of documentation and negotiation etiquette. On top of this, both Elizabeth and Hamid are extremely kind and personable.
Their efforts exceeded our expectations, as did our selling price. The entire process was smooth and stress-free. We highly recommend them to anyone looking for effective, reliable and professional real estate agents.
"I would like to thank Elizabeth Khosravvi and Hamid Farid for the excellent work they have done both in selling my property and being an integral part of the process to secure a new home for me and my family.
Over the last 3 years Elizabeth and Hamid have successfully sold 2 properties for me obtaining high purchase prices and selling the properties quickly and efficiently.
Throughout the whole process they were extremely professional, efficient and kept me informed on progress every step of the way. They have an excellent understanding of the current real estate market and provide accurate and valuable advise.
On top of this Hamid helped me through the process of vetting all potential properties in the market to ensure I made the right decision for me and my family. Being a busy business woman this saved me so much time and ensured I did not buy a property with potential problems, at the wrong price or in the wrong area.
On a personal note Elizabeth and Hamid are hard workers who give 100
to their clients and yet still find the time to add the personal touch.
I highly recommend Elizabeth and Hamid to future buyers and sellers and would be more than happy to speak to anyone requiring further information. For buying or selling property they are the only agents for me."
Thank you so much for arranging the sale / purchase of the house. It all went smoothly even on a tight deadline thanks to your co-ordination with the previous property owners.
I really admire your understanding of the situation and professional work ethic making it all happen like smooth sailing smile emoticon.
Also, thank you so much for the gift, it will hold a special place in our kitchen for years to come smile emoticon
I wish you and Hamid all the best of Luck

Richard and I have recently successfully sold our home in Pakuranga. We were lucky enough to have had Elizabeth Khosravi and Hamid Farid from Barfoot & Thompson Pakuranga to assist us with this sale.Elizabeth and Hamid are very professional and knowledgeable in all areas of Real Estate and kept us
informed of progress every inch of the way. If we ever had any worries they could be contacted and we were put at ease knowing that they would help with any concerns we had. Not only did they do this but Elizabeth assisted us with the presentation of our property to best demonstrate the full potential of the property to prospective buyers.We would like to say that we would highly recommend Elizabeth and Hamid to our friends, family or anyone who needs assistance with the sale of their property.
I have recently sold two houses one in Howick and the other in Bucklands Beach by auction with Elizabeth Khosravi and her husband Hamid as the real estate agents who marketed the properties. I found Elizabeth and Hamid both very professional and most helpful in answering all my questions. Elizabeth worked tirelessly to ensure as many potential buyers as possible were aware of the up coming auctions and brought many people to view the houses. I was kept up to date with daily phone calls and given expert advice on how things should proceed. I also found her advertisements most effective and the brochures of the houses most impressive. Elizabeth and Hamid are a lovely couple that know the real estate business very well. They are friendly, helpful, professional and always willing to go the extra mile. What could have been a stressful time was made so much easier with their help. I have no hesitation in recommending Elizabeth and Hamid to anyone wishing to sell their property, you will be in great hands.Carol Austin
After reviewing multiple salespeople we decided on Elizabeth and Hamid to market our property because of their total confidence in their own ability to sell our property at a higher price than we had indicated. We found, right from the beginning, they understood the many avenues available to market our unique investment property. We found Elizabeth to be very approachable and available at any time that we had questions or needed advice.
Elizabeth took control over the arrangements with the tenants, organising with them on the open homes and viewing times, taking the pressure off us completely. After two weeks we received a pre-auction offer, which we were happy with and brought the auction forward. The auction was held at the Pakuranga office and drew a massive crowd (which highlights the amount of work they both did in getting interested parties to the auction)
We ended up with 7 active bidders pushing our sale price a further $80,000 more than the pre-auction offer. We were understandably over the moon with this result as this extra $80,000 they obtained for us will be life changing! We'd like to thank them both and highly recommend Elizabeth and Hamid to anyone looking to sell their property.
We want to sell our home without paying commission, we advertised in Trade me and we could not sell it. After we signed exclusively with Elizabeth and Barfoot& Thompson, she started very strong marketing and our house has been sold above our expectation price. We are grateful for the job she and her husband did for our family and we recommend them strongly for any property sell or buy. God BlessBahman & Cherry Golchin
Thank you Elizabeth and Hamid for the great team work in selling our house well over the price expectations
and in less than 3 weeks! We had from the beginning a very good feeling that we chose the right team.
Thank you again for the professional and prompt service!
We will recommend you to all our friends!
