#4 Sales Partnership, West Auckland Region, 6 months ending September 2019
My real estate career started in 2002 as an administrative assistant in property management. I quickly progressed to residential sales in 2003. In my first year, as a salesperson I gained second place 'Rookie of the Year' and was ranked in the top 20 salespeople in 2004 for the Northland/Auckland region. In 2008 I was the 'Number 1 Salesperson of the Year' for my branch.
Prior to real estate I worked in nursing and medical sales. This field leveraged my strong communication skills, integrity and work ethic. My vast knowledge of the local real estate market, outstanding negotiating skills and sheer hard work has led to my success in real estate.
I now work with my son and sales associate, Ryan Littler, who has a background in produce retail sales. Ryan brings to the team his bubbly personality and fantastic customer service skills, along with his excellent internet technology expertise. This combination enhances the marketing and selling of your property.
With Ryan and me working for you as a team, you can be guaranteed of the highest level of service for all your real estate needs.

The listing agents we used were second to none - they were brilliant. We engaged Julia and Ryan to market a property for an elderly relative. From when we first met them we felt confident they were the people we wanted to work for us. They were always professional in a relaxed and friendly way. They went over and above what was expected and offered to let tradesmen into the property when we were unable to. We would definitely use Julia and Ryan again if we had the need, and would highly recommend them to others who want to buy or sell a property.Alison and Phil
I am pleased to say again a HUGE thank you to Julia and Ryan with marketing and selling our house. We had used them in the past with great success and it was an easy decision to use them again.

"Julia and Ryan were brilliant - so ethical, so friendly, so helpful and so patient. They negotiated an excellent price for me. I would recommend this team in particular and Barfoot & Thompson in general to everyone wishing to sell their home."Jill Burges
"Just wanted to say thanks to Julia and Ryan for being such a great real estate agent. We were hesitant that there were any good ones left but we hit the jack pot. They make a fantastic team and were always on hand. We were lucky to have them both sell our property and find us a new one which was a tough ask to find the house we were wanting with the budget we had and yet they managed to stick with us after multiple open homes and auctions to find it. When selling our house, they kept us in the loop over everything and were very honest with feedback and also changes in the market which kept us knowledgeable and able to make an informed decision once an offer was presented. Thanks again from a very happy family, now living in a fantastic family home".Jemima and Jason S, Henderson
Ryan and Juilia made the process of selling our first home a breeze. From the initial property appraisal to Auction day, they were always available to give advice and they gave us plenty of tips to make our house more appealing to the market. The feedback at every stage of the process was excellent and we couldn't have been more pleased to have a pre-auction offer for the house within a week of the listing going live. They were with us throughout the Auction and explained what was happening as we hadn't been through one before. We were very happy with the outcome of the Auction and wouldn't hesitate to recommend Ryan and Julia to anyone wanting to sell their property.Lauren & Karyn

Selling a house is a stressful experience, but Ryan and Julia made the experience so much easier. We would choose them again in a heartbeat.

Ryan and Julia worked very effectively as a tag team - answering our questions and providing information and support through the whole process. Thank you so much.Magnus and Monica C, Glen Eden
