John Elgar is based at the Grey Lynn office of Barfoot & Thompson, and has over 17 years real estate experience. He specialises in selling property throughout the central Auckland area. He previously worked in scientific research for 21 years, at Massey University, DSIR and HortResearch.
John and his family have lived in the Mt Eden area for nearly 30 years and he has an excellent knowledge of the lifestyle choices and schooling options available in the central Auckland area.
Hard working and vendor-focused, John knows what it takes to sell properties. An impressive track record with a very long list of delighted vendors and purchasers simply doesn't happen by accident. With a strong background in the research industry, John recognises that he is in the business of fulfilling people's dreams and applies this philosophy with precision when matching buyers to specific property through his database management. Effective marketing is a key ingredient in promoting a vendor's property, but so too is the ability to negotiate the best possible price and close the sale for the vendor. John has gained a reputation for giving reliable and timely feedback and advice to his many clients, and for his dogged persistence in obtaining the best result for you. His aim is to work with you to ensure that a marketing strategy is put in place that will realise the market value for your property with the least inconvenience.
