I joined Barfoot & Thompson in 2005, after 23 years in retail. This may sound like a big career shift but I have always had a focus on customer service so real estate is a natural fit for me. From the outset, my passion for people and property, together with my work ethic, saw me develop a successful real estate business with a strong client base.
My ability to engage with clients of all ages and backgrounds, together with my honest, down-to-earth attitude, puts people at ease. Ever-changing trends go hand-in-hand with real estate. My willingness to adapt to new circumstances or situations, invariably achieving a win for both parties, gives my clients’ confidence.
I am proud of the fact that a large percentage of my business is either from referrals or loyal clients who have benefited from my friendly and professional service. My aim is to make the buying or selling of your home as stress-free as possible and my attention to detail and always being prepared to go the extra mile, has been acknowledged by many happy clients!
Call or email me at Barfoot & Thompson Milford or drop into the office for a chat.
Thanks so much for your help in finding 'us' a new home. The road was long, the criteria changeable but you were always so very positive and professional and that made all the difference for me personally.Margaret W
Considering it was the first time we had sold a house for 24 years we were both short of experience and very nervous. Jenny was an island of calm for us and kept us grounded - realistic expectations, advice on what to do and kept us well-informed at every step of the way.
Whilst the whole process was nerve-wracking for us, not having been in the property market for 24 years, Jenny guided us easily and relatively quickly through the process. We always felt well informed and knew what we had to do, Jenny fitted in around our lifestyle/work commitments and helped us get a good outcome (for everyone) at the end of the day. I hope it won't be 24 years before we ask them for help again. Jenny was recommended by a friend and we would have no hesitation in recommending her to any of our friends thinking of selling.
I recently bought a unit via your office in Milford - not the biggest deal in the world - but I wanted to pass on some feedback. We dealt with Jenny Gibson on the transaction - and I thought as an outsider looking in, she was a fantastic representative of your company. Kind, enthusiastic, thorough to the detail, patient, professional. Top class. So thank you, we have the home we wanted and it has been a very pleasant experience to boot.Phil S
"Thank you for everything you have done for our dream home. What you've done is way more than what we expected from an agent. Because of you we could do house hunting so comfortably and finally got the one we wanted. Thank you again for all your help."The Pauls
Jenny, thank you so much for the tireless work you put into selling our property. You are an extraordinary real estate agent who offers huge passion, commitment and professionalism to your clients. And a lovely lady to boot. The result you achieved for us was a direct result of the effort you put in. We are so grateful to you, we couldn't have asked for more.Michelle Llewell
Having decided to sell our Forest Hill property, the Executors invited a number of Real Estate companies to visit the property once and then provide us with non-binding preliminary submissions on their assessment of the condition, saleability, style of marketing, terms and conditions and approximate broad price band for the property. Following assessment of those submissions, the number of companies was reduced to two. Those were then invited to carry out a detailed inspection of the property and update their submissions to include recommendations and estimated costs of any improvements that may improve the saleability of property, a full marketing programme, expected return on sale and defined terms and conditions including estimated commission etc.. Upon receipt the Agents were invited to meet with us at the property to discuss and refine each proposal. At the meeting with the B & T team there was clear empathy with both the property and ourselves leading to the decision to appoint B & T as our marketing agents. From then until conclusion of the sale and recent transfer of the property, the conduct of the team was exemplary with constant communication & written reports culminating with an extremely successful onsite auction. It has been a pleasure to deal with the team of Jenny Gibson & Peter Dunne based in the B & T Milford Office. We have no hesitation in recommending them.F Cumming
"We were indeed so happy to have Jenny as our sales agent. She is very professional in her sales presentation and went out of her way to ensure we had peace of mind in the time she had with us. It made it much easier for us as the selling of one's house is indeed very stressful to say the least. I can honestly say that Jenny was outstanding."Ron H
"Jenny was recommended to us as someone very capable of handling property sales with a proven track record. We very soon realised that not only was she capable, but she was passionate about her job and offering the very best service she could. Jenny kept us informed and guided us throughout each step of the process. She made herself available at all times, and nothing was too much bother for her. Her ability and calmness helped us immensely. Following the sale, her continued support and advice was of the highest standard.
Jenny was a delight to deal with. Her ability and calmness throughout the process made a daunting task so much easier for us. Owing to the age of my father, she arranged for our property to be auctioned first on the day. This was a most considerate action and very much appreciated. Her 'after sales service' was second to none. We also appreciated the extra little things she did (flowers, chocolates, cards) - it made you feel special. Jenny's overall professional manner and ease of dealing with people is a great asset for Barfoot & Thompson."
"Jenny did an exceptional job for us, was available at any time, and the result achieved reflected her professionalism. Extremely happy with the service Jenny provided, wonderful person to deal with."Ian and Jo G
"I won't waste time doing a detailed analysis. Her performance could not have been better! Remember that I am a cynical old lawyer who has seen it all.Phil
We engaged Jenny to sell my mother's home of 54 years. A practical but very emotional decision. Thank goodness for Jenny. Even though I live in Australia, she kept me up to date with emails and phone calls every day; she was always reassuring to me and Mum; prepared us in advance for the things we needed to consider, and helped us make the right decisions at the right times. She took as much of the stress away from the process as she possibly could. Her calm demeanour and sensitivity meant that we NEVER felt pressured. The result was fantastic and Mum can happily begin looking for her next home...with Jenny's help of course."Kaye C
"Jenny gave us wonderful service, with great attention to detail, helpful advice, and regular contact regarding the progress of the sale campaign. She made the whole process comfortable and ultimately successful in meeting our expectations."Elizabeth B
"Jenny acted in a professional manner throughout the entire selling process. We felt very relaxed with her and had complete faith in her honesty and integrity. There were no surprises as she explained everything to us and was very open about what was happening and we valued her suggestions and ideas. She really helped make it as stress free as is possible. We would certainly recommend her to anyone wanting to sell or buy."Wendy and Paul D
"Jenny gave us exceptional service in helping to downsize our property. She persevered with us for 3 years helping us work through buying and selling options. She understood our needs very well and continually but unobtrusively provided us with information and opportunities that helped us find an outcome that worked for us. When we were ready to sell she quickly organised and planned the whole process and guided us through. She provided a nice balance of recommendations while leaving key decisions for us to make. The whole process went very smoothly thanks to Jenny's attention to detail and the final outcome was well above our expectations. We highly recommend Jenny to other clients."Graham and Jill
"Selling our house was a new experience for us; this stressful process was made easier for us with Jenny's excellent communication, professionalism and knowledge. Jenny's approachable manner and skill in her field help guide us through with unbiased advice and no pressure. Jenny achieved an outstanding result for us, which exceeded our expectations. This was a testament to her drive, hard work and proficiency in her profession. We can't thank you enough for selling our house!"Scott and Jacqui
"Jenny was so helpful during the stressful process, she went above and beyond our expectations - she even looked after our cat when we went away one weekend.
We went to Auction for the sale of our property and for a two bedroom unit we got a lot more than we first expected to get. We will definitely be calling Jenny when it comes to the sale of our next house. Thanks Jenny!"
"Jenny managed to turn our dread of house-selling into an (almost!) pleasant experience which passed very quickly and easily. Always available, charming and solidly behind us, with lots of follow-up. We would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone requiring a salesperson."Richard & Lyndon
"Jenny was absolutely lovely to work with. She gave me great advice and facilitated me making informed and appropriate decisions. Her communication was excellent, especially given that I'm in the UK. She listened to my needs and made responsive and appropriate recommendations. And ultimately she worked hard and got me the result I wanted! Many thanks Jenny."Nikki
