My wife and I were both really impressed from our first connection with Ian around how engaging he was with us, allowing us to ask questions around the process, and taking the time to make sure we were comfortable with every step. He made what should have been a stressful process, smooth and carefree."G & A French

reliable. We had full confidence in him. We would thoroughly recommend him if you are looking for an agent in the Franklin area."
"Having worked in real estate before and currently working in the property data industry, I knew exactly what I wanted from an agent and Ian and his team delivered on all fronts. The process was smooth and professional and we got a great result in exactly the time frame we needed. Thanks Ian!"G & K Phillips
We have no hesitation in recommending Ian as a real estate agent to sell your property. From first meeting he seemed very well prepared and had confidence and experience. He was able to accurately gauge where our property was placed price wise in the existing market and he quickly facilitated a seamless sale which exceeded our expectations.J & J Kirby
From the first time we dealt with Ian we found him to be very informative, honest, polite and full of positive energy. We were happy with the marketing and auction and the way he kept us up to date and informed at all times throughout the progress of the sales.
We had a lot of confidence in Ian as he showed a lot of professionalism and understanding of the local real estate market. We look forward to working with Ian at Barfoot and Thompson Pukekohe in the future.

"A few notes on working with Team du Plessis
It was a pleasure to work with Ian du Plessis as our land agent in the sale of our home recently. Having only sold one home in our working lives we were nervous about the whole procedure, but were constantly reassured by Ian's knowledge of the local market and his perception and ability to give sound advice. We really appreciated his background knowledge of statistics and intelligent interpretation of current trends in the area.
We found him to be completely trustworthy and honest, open, friendly, genuine and realistic. He spent a lot of time explaining procedures and we learnt to rely on his ability and experience.
We know that he worked very diligently to achieve our goals, and we were appreciative of his support and the hard work he put in behind the scenes to do this.
To anyone buying or selling in this area we would certainly recommend Ian and his team as most enthusiastic, trustworthy and successful land agents."
"Excellent communication during the whole process."P Cowsill
"Following a poor service with a previous agent we felt B&T went above and beyond with their service and exceeded our expectations."S Andrews
Ian du Plessis was very professional and went above and beyond. When/if we sell again we will be using his services.M Waugh
"We received excellent service from Ian Du Plessis who went above and beyond to accommodate our needs."J Stadler
Absolute commitment to the sale by Ian du Plessis, especially when the going got tough.M Nelson
Ian has been a pleasure to work with in selling our investment property in Pukekohe. What impressed us the most, apart from the excellent price he quickly achieved, was the efficiency of his communication. Buying or selling a house can be stressful and we were concerned about the fact that we are based in Melbourne and having to rely solely on Ian. Although not our smoothest house sale, this was no reflection on Ian and he was able to help us overcome any obstacles that were presented to us. This was due to his willingness to make numerous calls and texts to Australia in quick response to any queries that we had.
We would recommend Ian 100
as an agent to sell your house.
Ian made the whole process easier than I first assumed it to be. It was effortless to trust and believe someone who was so honest and down to earth whilst having plenty of knowledge about the process and it reduced the nerves that come with purchasing a property.N & M Scobie
I want to thank Ian very much for his constant feedback on the sale of my property. I am a real estate agent in Queenstown and was most impressed with the attentive ability of Ian and his team. Initially I asked two agencies to appraise my house. Only Ian visited the property for an actual appraisal and despite the similarity in price feedback Ian was a clear choice. Right down to auction day I felt incredibly informed of the buyers and what to expect on auction day. The buyer was a little difficult after the auction, however, Ian did an amazing job of negotiations after the sale and the settlement was successful. I recommend Ian highly as the young man with professionalism, care and assurance to deliver.N Bell
We had the pleasure of using Ian for the sale of our property. Ian suggested an auction which was very successful and the marketing was outstanding. We found Ian to be extremely positive and always available to answer any questions we had regarding our property. We would highly recommend him as his enthusiasm and professionalism was without a doubt of an excellent standard at all times. Thank you to Ian and the Barfoot team for making the sale of our property as stress free as possible.J Rhodes
Our agent, Ian Du Plessis, was fantastic. Ian was the first agent that we have dealt with that never made us feel pressured into making a decision. We have dealt with a number of agents before and have never felt as though we could fully believe what they were telling us. Ian was knowledgeable, helpful and trustworthy. We have both purchased and sold property through Ian and hope that we will only ever deal with him in the future.D & K Whittaker

"It was a quick process right from the first time we met up with Ian for an appraisal. Never had gone through an auction for/of a property before. We were well informed every step of the way and put us at ease. Appreciate his honesty and feedback. Amazing job from Ian and his team for making this a success for us."W Leong

Previously I had used other real estate companies when selling so this latest house sale was my first experience with Barfoot & Thompson. Ian Du Plessis in the Pukekohe office was a complete professional. From the initial consultation, right through to the end result, he ensured we were kept up to date with the correct information and was diligent and methodical in this approach. He made the whole process so seamless for us.K J Pitman

He is a lovely guy and treated us as though we were his grandparents.A & J Smith

He has always made time to speak with us and offer advice throughout the whole process of selling our much loved family home, and buying our next dream home!

Outstanding service and results would sum up Ian du Plessis. From his first point of contact Ian's professionalism was evident. His explanation of how he would market, and the best way to sell our property was first class and his communication throughout the selling process was superb. Barfoot & Thompson are very lucky and should be very proud of this young mans ability in the real estate field. Thank you so much Ian, to sell our property in 5 days for a price above our expectations was nothing short of remarkable, if you hadn't already realised, we are very happy vendors. All the very best,R & P Ushaw

With Ian's professional advice we were able to market our house to a wide range of prospective buyers. We found selling our house in Pukekohe not as stressful as we thought it would be, due to Ian's dedication and hard work. We are very impressed with Ian he always went the extra mile, from the photography marketing to auction day everything went perfectly. In the future if we have a property to sell we will be using Ian du Plessis services. Thank you Ian."A, J & S Wright

I would definitely recommend that you consider using Ian to sell your property, and especially if it has investment potential as he understands this market."B Heath
"Now where do you start when you describe Team du Plessis..... AMAZING! Ian and his team were fantastic from the get go. After our first meeting with him we knew we were in the right hands. He knew exactly what the market was doing and he was very honest about what to expect from him, the current market and was very realistic on the amount we would get for our house. When you choose Ian to sell your house, you not only get reliable, funny, hard working professional agent but also the team who work with him behind the scenes especially his assistant Kate. We would highly recommend Ian and team and would definitely use them again to sell our home."J & A Lunny
