When we decided to sell up and move out of Auckland I started googling the internet and came across Barfoot & Thompson. After a phone call to Iain he was happy to pop around and have a chat with us. From the time we met him we felt comfortable. At the initial signing up process we met Deepak and felt that they both had good knowledge and made us feel at ease. They were always professional and positive. The first weekend came and the open homes began we got an offer that weekend and it was more than what we thought. They even followed up with a backup just in case. Initially it was hard waiting to become unconditional so when things started getting stressful they kept us positive. I would highly recommend you talk to either Iain or Deepak when you are ready to sell your home. Thanks heaps guys". Margaret and Bob Gallagher
It is our pleasure to recommend Iain and Deepak who make a professional, efficient, and formidable team. They successfully sold our property in a very short-time frame which alleviated stress and we were continually informed throughout the process. Iain and Deepak shared their invaluable advice and knowledge which most certainly helped to 'seal the deal.' We were delighted by the video which really captured the essence of our home and community. If you are looking for a great agent then look no further - we would use this team again without any hesitation or reservation. Tim and Larissa Nicholson
We would highly recommend Iain and Deepak for selling your home. From the first time we met Iain and Deepak we knew we could trust them, they were friendly and absolutely brilliant to work with. We felt they made everything so easy and stress free. Their level of professionalism was exceptional, and they delivered on all that they promised. The marketing material, including the video of the property was of an exceptionally high standard and no doubt contributed to the very quick sale of the property. They went over and above in all aspects in their dealings with us and they were very transparent in regard to the whole
sales process. We could not have had a better outcome and we are very grateful for the awesome service we had in all our dealings with Iain and Deepak. Neale Watling
At all times Iain and Deepak were a pleasure to deal with, their courtesy and total availability were very helpful during an anxious time and they went above and beyond to ensure that the process went smoothly. Iain and Deepak are ever enthusiastic and positive and remained cool, calm and collected when I was feeling the pressure and gave extremely good advice when I required guidance. The final result was very pleasing to me, and once again Iain and Deepak were totally supportive through the entire campaign; they are both very knowledgeable and very good communicators, every step of the way. Raewyn Anderson
As overseas vendors it was vital for us that we chose the right agents, Iain and Deepak were amazing to deal with, they organised so much for us, staging, handyman services even quotes for drainage. Not only are they great agents they are also honest and reliable people who are really very good at their jobs. We highly recommend their services to you - if you are looking for high energy, high capability and high trust agents, then look no further. Niv and Carissa Aldridge
Iain and the team (Deepak Nain) are great. He totally had my confidence from day one. He goes out of his way to be helpful and his advice is spot on. I never trust real estate agents but I trust Iain 110 percent.Ashley Lake
Deepak and Iain were absolutely amazing in facilitating the purchase of our first home. We received great assistance with a personal touch in deciding where to buy, what to buy and when to buy without the usual pushy sales tactics. They always responded to our queries in timely manner and made us felt that no question is a stupid question. At one occasion, they even babysit our toddler while we were busy viewing a prospective home. We wholeheartedly recommend their real-estate and babysitting services to the would be and existing home owners. Dev Datta & Sammy Chakraborty
"They can make it happen !! Deepak knows what it takes to change a not so good experience into an unbelievably great experience. After 3 months of utter frustration, negative feedbacks, you need to lower your price statements, empty open homes and failing to ever meet the person who originally listed our house we were about ready to scream. Enter Deepak Nain, he had just sold a house in our street after 2 weeks, how could that be? We immediately listed our house with him and Iain and the magic worked, they advised us to make little changes to our decor, new marketing and photos then 2nd weeks of marketing we also had a great offer. We only wish we had not wasted the initial 3 months. "
Happy clients!!Gurvinder Singh and Gurwinder Kaur
Iain and Deepak are amazing. Not only did they help me buy my dream house, they also sold my own unit so I could make this move happen.
I dont know much about buying and selling houses, this was the first time I have had to sell and I was worried about being taken advantage of. I was so pleased then to meet two agents who: 1) helped me at every step, 2) sold my house quickly but for a good price 3) kept on going for me when contracts fell through. They were there for me, always quick to answer calls, always coming round to discuss next steps.
I now live in my dream house, I will be honest, I thought I had lost out more than once, but in the end Iain and Deepak made it happen. They are the best agents I have ever met. Thank you guys, and if you are looking for a real estate agent, stop searching, call them. Mark Burton
Like most people my wife and I started looking on the various websites for our first home. We visited a few open homes and came across one that Iain was running. From that first interaction we were put at ease with the whole house hunting process. Iain helped us review our expectations of a home listened to our requirements and kept informing us of suitable properties. We lost track of how many we saw, however Iain did not give up. His last comment to us was "I guarantee you that you will be home owners within 3 weeks time". He was right. In that third week we found the house we wanted and Iain helped us to negotiate an offer that was accepted, we now own our first home.
We are so glad we met him when we did, he was on our side helping us every step of the way to succesfully navigate the real estate world. We highly recommend him to anyone looking for assistance in buying or selling properties.Nuha and Keegan
Buying a house is a giant gamble with uncertainties all around, where to buy, what to avoid, how much something matters, and what should you pay! Navigating this requires someone who is willing to offer experience, common sense, and to get things done quickly. Iain rose to this challenge with us and we have purchased our first home in the crazy Auckland market. He is friendly, genuine, and very generous with his time. Would definitely recommend his services to anyone looking to navigate their own purchase or sale." Tinus & Sarah.
As first home buyers, entering the market looking for a family home was quite daunting. We knew there was a lot we didn't know, and we were worried we would be disadvantaged by our lack of experience. Enter Iain Scott. Iain was quick to ascertain the kind of home we were looking for, and tirelessly arranged viewing after viewing (often privately, at our convenience) of a vast number of properties within our budget and specifications. We felt much more secure in the market with Iain giving us advice regarding pre-auction offers and bidding strategy, and clarifying aspects of the housing market which were sometimes confusing. After several weeks of searching, we found our dream home, and won it at auction. We would have no hesitation to recommend Iain to anyone looking to buy or sell. His experience coupled with his friendly manner is invaluable for those navigating the housing market. Mike and Mahsa
Let me just recommend Iain Scott should you decide you want to do some house hunting. He'll take you to as many open homes as you can manage and open up places even when there are no open homes scheduled, (at times when its more convenient to you). You'll definitely see more houses with his help than you'll manage to do alone and he's not shy on suggestions or warnings on things you may not have thought of.
He's like the "key" to your new home.
Thanks Iain for all your help.Chris, Petrina and George
Recently we made the decision to move to a larger house. When we met Iain we believed that we had found a real estate agent who is different; someone who is supportive and working in our best interests. We bought a new house unconditionally and then we were under the financial pressure to sell our own. Iain was really supportive throughout this process, he persuaded us to sell by auction so we would get the best price for our house. It was stressful knowing we had to sell but at no time did he pressure us to accept a lower price. In the end we received a pre-auction offer way above our must sell price and we are delighted with the result and the service he provided. If you have been looking for that agent who can provide a different experience, we highly recommend him to you. Jason and Charlotte Taane
When we met Iain we were nearly ready to give up on the crazy Auckland market. He was so helpful in finding properties that were suitable and in our price range. Iain answered all our questions honestly and provided great advice for dealing with auctions. We are so excited about securing our first home. We would highly recommend Iain to anyone looking to buy a home. Nikita & Jesse.
We would like to say a huge thank you for all your assistance and days spent with us in search of our new home. For any person looking to list a property or looking for their next home we would highly recommend working with Iain. Iain was very committed to helping us find our next home. He listened to our requirements and went to work searching for the ideal home and then presented a number of carefully selected properties for us to look at. He had a bit of a task with us as he not only had us to please, but our 20 year old daughter and 16 year old son's wish list to consider as well. Over a period of approximately one month Iain made himself available to us every weekend. His persistence, encouragement, honesty, organisational skills and great sense of humour did not go unnoticed. Searching for our new home with Iain was enjoyable for all of us. Thank you so much for all your help Iain. We will definitely keep you in mind for future investment properties and if we ever decide to sell.
Thanks and all the best IainShelley and Byron Martin
I was recommended Iain to sell my much loved home. Iain knows the local area and he knows the market. He uses video to tell a story and created a fantastic 2 minute presentation centre piece for marketing my home. He kept in close contact throughout the sale, I had an offer after the first open home, when that fell through he worked hard again and negotiated a second offer after the third week. This went unconditional in 2 days, all this without a council sign-off on my house. I would refer Iain to all my friends and family, if you want a great agent with super-fast results then look no further. Kate Bennellick
I have enjoyed the interaction with you Iain, Keep up the good work. It has been good to work with someone who actively listens to what purchasers say they are looking for. I will refer you to my friends when they are looking to sell in the future. Heath Dickenson
There is no doubt Iain is totally trustworthy and ethical. He has great work ethic and always strives for excellence in every endeavour he undertakes. Iain gets results, often as a consequence of his ability to 'think outside the box'.Erik Merkens
