Straight talking, driven and professional. I get results!
Backed by a successful sales career and over ten years of experience - Having worked my way up the corporate ladder from retail assistant to sales and then to an account manager in charge of large multi-million dollar accounts, I've got the skills and the attitude required to achieve great results for my real estate clients.
My professional achievements include doubling the annual turnover of my client base and being awarded one of the National Top Performing Account Managers in my previous role. I have every intention of accomplishing the same kind of success in real estate, and my clients will vouch for it.
I work well under pressure; in fact I thrive on it! I've got a "let's get it done" attitude and I'm an excellent communicator. I enjoy working with people and I can relate to anyone, be it a CEO or the local coffee guy. It's my commitment to go over and beyond expectations, for all of my clients.
I love that we can enjoy a country lifestyle in Whangarei, but we're still only minutes from the convenience of town. The fact you don't have to commute for over an hour to work is a massive benefit that means more quality time with family, friends and enjoying the beautiful local beaches and bush walks of Northland.
During the last few years my main role has been Mum to my two gorgeous girls, but now it's time to get back into work. I've found my niche selling real estate, and I'd love to put my skills to work for you. Whether selling, buying or simply after advice, give me a call and let's get it done!
It is with absolute confidence that I write this testimonial for Jade on behalf of both my husband and myself. We met Jade as the salesperson who listed and managed the property we have just purchased.
Having sold real estate in the past and having changed homes a number of times over many years, I had reasonably high expectations of a professional salesperson, those being integrity, great communication, listening and timely feedback of information, friendly and approachable, and being genuinely interested in what is important to you....amongst other things.
Jade certainly met, perhaps exceeded our expectations as a professional who is certainly an asset to Barfoot & Thompson, Whangarei. Should you want to sell, find a home or both, again we say with confidence that we recommend Jade as your go-to salesperson.
We decided to list our property with Jade after being highly recommended by friends who had recently sold their property. Jade was honest, easy to deal with, focused and was very organised and thorough throughout the selling process. She also designed and presented a very good marketing plan that targeted, and reached, prospective purchasers in the right value range which lead to a sale well within our expected time-frame. We would highly recommend Jade to anyone who is considering selling their property. Thanks Jade!!!!Paul & Sharon
"We recently purchased a property from Jade and found her integrity and support for both vendor and purchaser outstanding. So much so that we decided to list our own property with her. Jade's detailed approach to our marketing plan was meticulous, thoughtful, and customized to our specific circumstances. Right through the process Jade communicated clearly, was very professional and considerate.
The outcome was a successful sale in a timely manner. We would not hesitate to work with Jade again should the opportunity arise and highly recommend her as a trust worthy, honest, professional estate agent."
"Jade was superb. She organised a timetable of house decluttering, cleaning and polishing, marketing and open homes (she even lent us her water blaster). Dozens of people came to see the property and, in what seemed like no time, we had three good offers. Nothing could have been better! Thank you Jade."R & P Mead
This wonderfully genuine lady talked us through buying and selling property. She kept it real at all times with her upmost honest and Professional approach. If you want someone who has foresight, strength and commitment then this beautiful lady will deliver. She helped us change our lives and we love her.Karyn
Jade and her team at Barfoot and Thompson provided an excellent service for both the sale of our old and purchase of our new property. She listened carefully to what we wanted and was very thorough in finding the perfect house for us through hours of research and determination. Her effort, market estimates and advice was exact when it came to buying and selling which enabled a smooth and efficient transition for our property upgrade venture. We highly recommend Jade and the Barfoot & Thompson Team.K & A Wallace
Jade did such a great job working with us on the sale of our house. She made it such a stress free experience and we were lucky to have found her. She got us the result we wanted faster than we thought possible. I would highly recommend Jade to anybody looking to buy or sell property.T & L Udjur
From the moment we first met Jade we were extremely impressed with her professionalism and attention to detail, so selecting her to market our property was an easy decision. Throughout the marketing period Jade really went the extra distance for us ensuring our house was widely and professionally advertised, and beautifully presented at open homes and private viewings while we were overseas. Jade's communication was excellent, and we remained fully informed during the marketing period. Jade achieved a pre-auction offer well exceeding our expectation, resulting in a very quick and successful sale. Selling a property can be a very stressful experience... not with Jade Christie-Smyth!David and Sonya Prchal
My mother's place in Kamo was listed with another agent for six months with no success and very little contact from the Agent .
After pretty much giving up hope I was very fortunate to get in contact with Jade Christie-Smyth. From first contact she came across as very professional and gave me a positive attitude that the property would sell - AND IT DID!!!
She had a plan of where and when things would happen and always followed through by contacting me and keeping me up-to-date of progress made. Would highly recommend her to anyone I know that would be selling or buying.
I bought my first rental property through Jade and found her to be friendly and helpful. Buying can be stressful but the process was made easy and I appreciated everything being done quickly and with no hassles. Knowing I was not local to the area, she offered to recommend builders to do the pre purchase inspections and patiently waited for me to organise all the paperwork around my work schedule. Jade was a pleasure to deal with and very personable, so I didn't just feel like 'the buyer'. I would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a property. Thanks again for all your work Jade.Joanne Mair
I bought my first home through Jade. She was awesome and very helpful throughout the whole thing - no stresses at all and everything was done with the utmost integrity and efficiency.
I'll definitely call on her again when I decide to move on
