Offering an analytical and well-planned approach to selling real estate, I ensure every detail has been carefully thought out, and that every step of the process is meticulously executed. From the initial marketing plan to the final negotiations, you can be assured that I'm across it all.
I graduated from University of Canterbury with a Bachelor of Commerce, honours degree, with a double major in Operations Management and Human Resources Management. I then went on to spend over a decade in supply chain management for several of New Zealand's largest retail businesses.
My experience in demand supply planning, financial forecasting, budgeting and data analysis is now benefiting my real estate clients. I also fully understand marketing philosophy and how to use marketing tools to ensure I achieve optimal buyer interest in your property.
Speaking fluent Mandarin and English, I have a wide network of contacts. Most importantly however, I understand the differences of each culture very well and am able to adapt my negotiation style to suit. I understand what people's expectations are in an intense negotiation and how to reach the balance point to make an agreement.
Don't leave it to chance when you sell your home. Speak to someone who will arm you with all the information you need to make an informed decision.
Looking for a house in Auckland is such a challenge. You spend most of your weekends chasing from one open home to another, constantly weighing up your priorities against what you can afford. It is a tedious job and such an emotional rollercoaster. It is the salesperson that assists you who makes a huge difference. We have met a number of salespeople on our search for a home and Harry really stood out for us. We first met him at a house that we loved but the timing was wrong. Subsequently, we bumped into him at other open homes (as you would when you go to as many open homes as you can). He always greeted us with a welcoming smile and kept in contact all the time with a commitment to help us find the perfect home – which he ultimately did! His exceptional service continued through the negotiation and purchase process where he was quick to respond and often gave up his time to co-ordinate various activities such as building inspections, quotes and other queries with the vendor. We are very pleased to have worked with Harry to find our home.Roger & Nikki Buissinne
After searching for our first house for almost a year with another salesperson from another real estate company with no good results, Harry was recommended to us by a good friend and he helped us buy our first home in a very short period of time under the extremely difficult Covid-19 situation. It was a pleasure working with Harry. He is professional, caring and always got back to us promptly. Throughout the process, Harry always made sure that we were well-informed and we were clear about what we were expected to do. For all you have done for us, we wanted to say a big thank you to you Harry and we would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone selling or buying a home. Your commitment to getting the job done is second-to-none.Yao Lu
We have been dealing with Harry since we started our journey looking for our new property 18 months ago. We have seen many properties and had many highs and lows throughout the journey and Harry has been there every step of the way supporting and guiding us. Harry worked extremely hard to secure us our dream home as well as exceeding our expectations with the sale of our previous property. Nothing was ever too much trouble for him and he always made us feel like his only clients. His responses to our inquiries were always immediate and his sense of humour and easy going nature has turned him from our salesperson into our friend. We would highly recommend Harry to anyone who desires a hard working, professional salesperson who gets results. We will always turn to Harry in the future for our real estate needs.O & H Reed
Harry was recommended to us by a good friend after we had a few disastrous experiences with other salespeople. As we were new to the housing market, we felt we had been unfairly taken advantage of. As soon as we met Harry, we felt that we could trust him. He has an open and honest personality and has always provided us with accurate information. He developed an excellent rapport with my wife and I, and our two young children. Harry has helped us along our journey with clear unbiased knowledge concerning the residential property buying process. His wealth of experience coupled with a genuine commitment to finding us our perfect property sets Harry apart from all other salespeople who we have encountered. We trust him completely and now consider him to be a friend more than just a real estate professional.Chris Howard
I met Harry about six months before I sold my house. We were having a general conversation and I asked what he did for a living, “real estate salesperson”. He then said if I was selling a house to get in contact and gave me his card. I contacted Harry when my house was ready for sale. He was prompt and listened to what I was expecting. He was realistic in his expectations for my property and its value and didn’t give me false expectations or assurances.
My house was to go on the market at the end of March, but we went into Lockdown! He made sure the photos were taken prior to this, so we had them available to start marketing the property as soon as possible. He kept me updated with the number of visitors through the property at Open homes or private viewings as well as indicating how many were seriously interested in the property. He supported me during the auction to ensure I got the best price possible.
I recommend Harry when you are considering selling a property.Susan Law
I met Harry during COVID-19 Level 3 at a private viewing of a property I was interested in. Even though I could not shake hands or see his smile, I knew I was in safe hands as he guided me through the house. Harry is a genuinely interested individual and paid attention to every aspect of my journey as a buyer. He guided me through the on-line bidding process and made me feel confident and relaxed about the process, resulting in me winning the auction. I highly recommend Harry as a guide to sourcing or selling your property - he was not pushy or pressuring me at all. That was very much appreciated in quite a stressful environment and time in NZ history.Jenny Parker
"Harry took over the challenge with detailed marketing plans and pricing strategies, after our house has been selling through another agency without any success. Even though there are difficulties in this market, Harry kept encouraging us with positive attitude, took us through the entire process patiently, and also went above and beyond my expectations in terms of maximising market exposure, such as open home invitations, twilight open home, making his own videos for social media etc. By working together as a team, we have eventually achieved the best possible result. We appreciate Harry's professionalism as a real estate agent and willingly recommend him to anyone who's wanting to sell or buy."Sandra
Harry approached the sale of our house with professionalism and good humour. He is knowledgeable and explained the process and options clearly. He then took ownership of the campaign and worked extremely hard to find buyers. Harry was available to us at all times and always accommodated our requests. We would recommend Harry and would have no hesitation in calling him first in the future.Olin & Helen Reed
My wife and I recently decided to sell our family home in Forrest Hill. We talked to several estate salespeople and decided upon Harry Liu from Barfoot & Thompson's Browns Bay office. The reason for our decision was based on Harry's professionalism and thorough approach to marketing our house, which was apparent during his presentation to us. We really felt that Harry had thought through a plan to reach the highest number of potential buyers, and that he would put 100% effort into implementing it. Numbers viewing the house during the open home weekend and at other times were higher than we had expected, and we were delighted to receive an attractive pre-auction offer and subsequent sale. Despite the offer on the table, Harry continued to work hard, with further viewings right up to the morning of the auction.
I definitely recommend people talk to Harry and give him an opportunity to sell your house, we certainly will again.
We really appreciate that we meet Harry Liu at an open home last month. My father and I are thankful and impressed with Harry and his wife's professional, friendly approach and we felt very comfortable dealing with this couple. He is patient and most of all understood our needs as a young family. He treated us like his own family members. We would not hesitate to contact Harry again in future and would highly recommend him to any buyers and sellers in Auckland. Thank you for Harry and Tiffany's hard work! You are the best.
Very pleased that we bumped into Harry Liu at a Barfoot & Thompson open home. My family and I are thankful and impressed with Harry's professional, friendly approach and we felt very comfortable dealing with him. He is reliable, very prompt and most of all understood our needs as a family. We would not hesitate to contact Harry again in future and would highly recommend him to others. Thanks Harry!Dina
