I’m positive and outgoing and I enjoy socialising with different kinds of people. So, working in the real industry is the perfect job for me! Buying or selling a home is a big decision for anyone and also an emotional one. I understand what people need and carry out the selling or buying plan with painstaking attention to detail. Helping them to achieve the best possible result, not only describes my business but also who I am as a professional.
I’m proud to be part of Barfoot & Thompson, a family-owned and operated company with a dedicated sales team of more than 1,700 salespeople. I’m joining my husband Steve as an Associate Salesperson at Howick branch where we’ll work as a team.
I have a Bachelor’s degree in Economics from the University of Beijing. Upon my arrival in New Zealand 20 years ago, my family and I settled in East Auckland. It is an area with beautiful beaches and parks, good schools and convenient facilities and a community made more colourful by its cultural diversity.
Involvement in my community is a great way to get to know the people and the lifestyles they seek. I volunteered as a school helper and a translator at a local school for a time and also as Secretary for the local swimming club. At present, I’m the coordinator of the Neighbourhood Support for my street. By working together we support each other, solve local issues and make our neighbourhoods safer and more welcoming.
I’m an animal lover, particularly dogs and cats and we have a six-year old Labrador who’s very special. I love dancing and quite a few years ago now, I studied classical ballet and passed Grade 6 & & examinations with the Royal Academy of Dance. Gardening, music and Chinese traditional opera take up my spare time.
I speak both Mandarin and Cantonese. To help you make the right choices, I’d love to check out the pros and cons of property for you. Call me at Barfoot & Thompson Howick or send me an email.
We are so pleased that we chose Steve and Helen to market our much loved family home of 20 years. They are an outstanding team, at all times professional, reliable and available to answer our questions. They communicated with us every step of the way so we always knew what was happening next. They have a wealth of knowledge about the area and the market, and always gave us frank and honest feedback. They worked incredibly hard throughout the whole process and made what can be a stressful time much smoother and easier for us. We highly recommend Steve and Helen to all prospective vendors looking for the best marketing and sales team for their property.Karen & Mark Johnson
It was our pleasure! to deal with Steve and Helen. They were very helpful and a great team to work with. Awesome communication from them at all times. We are very happy with the outcome and the process they managed. We would highly recommend them to vendors or purchasers. They were very transparent and gave us honest feedback throughout the sale.
Their bubbly personalities made the sales process an enjoyable experience.Annette & Kelvin
We are over the moon with the auction result, a record high in the area. It’s unbelievable! I cannot thank Steve and Helen enough for taking care of our marketing and sales process throughout a most stressful time. They genuinely made an effort to understand our needs, were very flexible to accommodate our busy schedule, and they even went out of their way to help us with tasks while we were at the hospital. We feel so grateful and thankful for that. Both Steve and Helen are very professional in their work and were very attentive, I was always able to reach out to them at anytime. It was so easy to work along with them, they regularly kept us updated and the whole process was a breeze. Once again, many thanks to Steve and Helen for the outstanding result, it was above and beyond our expectation. I would highly recommend Steve and Helen to anyone.Jess & Do Nguyen
