Real estate has been the central passion of my working life. I started with Barfoot & Thompson as a cadet in 1964 and had a range of responsibilities in a number of areas before taking up the Mt Eden branch manager's role in 1977.
Much has changed in the region over the years. What was once a rental area frequented by university students, has transformed into one of Auckland's most desirable areas for families. Considerable investment renovating the turn-of-the-century villas and bungalows has significantly increased housing values, and a Council tree-planting programme 20 years ago along suburban streets has aided the area's transformation.
As part of the Barfoot & Thompson network we have immediate access to over 69 branches and more than 1700 salespeople covering Greater Auckland and Northland, as well as the Barfoot & Thompson website, www.barfoot.co.nz, which provides exposure to property listings 24 hours a day, seven days a week. We pride ourselves on being one of the most technologically sophisticated real estate agencies, with an advanced computer system managing listings and providing the latest information on market trends, finance and buyers.
