#10 Individual Salesperson, West Auckland, ending March 2018
When you use me as your real estate salesperson, you will be employing someone with a proven track record, integrity, honesty, commitment, enthusiasm, loyalty and a willingness to 'go the extra mile'. I joined Barfoot & Thompson at the beginning of my real estate career in April 2003 and have been enjoying success in the same office ever since.
Having lived in West Auckland since 1980, where I raised three children, I am still passionate about the value of living in vibrant, growing Waitakere city where housing is still affordable. However, with ac cess to properties and buyers across Auckland through Barfoot & Thompson's network of more than 1700 salespeople, I am able to help my clients and customers into houses throughout the region.
Real estate is my passion even after all these years, and I am dedicated to giving quality service. I have been told that I have an easy-going manner but still a professional approach to your business.
All my clients and customers speak highly of my ability to make them feel at ease and have empathy with their concerns. I am delighted to have clients who have given me repeat business and who willingly refer me to friends and acquaintances. I bring to you 'Real Estate with Enthusiasm', plus a good dose of common sense!
Do call me if you would like to have an unpressured chat about your real estate needs in today's market. We have a great supportive team in our office to help you get your property sold, an electronic lockbox (accessible by all our salespeople) and an amazing network within our branches. I look forward to hearing from you, but in the meantime, please go to www.barfoot.co.nz/j.hey and have a read of the testimonials from my satisfied clients.
"We recently entrusted the marketing of our property in Te Atatu South, to Julie Hey and Shanthi Radha Krishnan through the Te Atatu office of Barfoot & Thompson. In all respects, we found Julie and Shanthi’s service to be excellent. Their manner and availability made us feel that they were totally committed to helping us to meet our goals. They regularly reported back to us on the level of interest, details of prospective buyers, and their thoughts on the current market, which, it has to be said, has been extremely volatile.
The resulting unconditional sale at auction, for a more than satisfactory price, completed a very smooth process.
We can confidently recommend Julie and Shanthi to prospective vendors."Mike & Chris - Te Atatu South, April 2022
"Julie always practised at the highest standards during the sale of our home. Communication was always forthcoming, sound advice given and whereever there was slighly awkward situations, Julie would always find a way forward with a positive outcome for all parties. She is very professional, very genuine and lovely to speak to in regards to all aspects of how to go about selling a property. Our journey with Julie goes back to 2003 when we bought in Maniu Place. It was then we were taken by her sincerity, honesty and a lovely trusting personality. It was because of these qualities we asked her back in 2021 to resell Manui Place, 18 years later. Again we were not disappointed.
Both Catrin and myself would like to wish Julie all the best for the future. Thank you Julie."Gerald & Catrin - Titirangi, November 2021
My wife and I were very fortunate to have had Julie Hey manage the successful sale of our property located at Oreil Avenue, West Harbour. My daughter initially approached Julie and was impressed with her manner and how she would market the property. This observation was passed on to us and it was agreed that we would engage Julie, who also kept my wife and myself updated on all actions that were to be taken. It had to have been a stressful time for Julie, with the Level 4 and Level 3 Lockdowns during the marketing period, however she did not let the Lockdowns impact on her commitment to market the property, including arranging the staging of furniture, so as to provide the best visual appearance of the inside of the house. We were kept updated on each viewing, and guided through all of the processes involved, including up to the successful auction result.
We would not hesitate to engage Julie in managing any other property that we may have in the future, and would be happy to recommend her to any person who should ask. We would wish that Julie's commitment to her clients is acknowledged as a credit to your company. Thank you. Best Regards.Ross & Lorraine Boyd - Red Beach, October 2021
"Julie is an exceptional real estate salesperson and more importantly an exceptional person. She made our house hunting journey easy with her support, positive attitude and honesty. She really is one of the best so we highly recommend her for anyone looking to buy or sell their property."Heather & Jamie, Massey - July 2021
Sending you a big "THANK YOU" for the wonderful way in which you marketed and sold my property in Te Atatu Peninsula. You helped me with a few issues that needed to be attended to, kept me fully updated on marketing and feedback from the open homes and then a run through of the auction process so that I knew what to expect on the day, and for which I am very grateful. Barfoot & Thompson are extremely fortunate to have you on their team.
Kind regardsPhilippa, Te Atatu Peninsula - July 2021
We used Julie 16 years ago to sell our property and again recently – still very approachable, and capable and we sold quickly for what we were looking for! Julie is always a pleasure to deal with."Frank & Shelley Willett, Te Atatu Peninsula - June 2021
"Julie is great at building relationships and having effective communication with her clients. We appreciate this as Julie has kept in friendly contact with us since we purchased our home through her eight years ago. Not only has she let us know of any successes she has had with clients, but has shown care and concern for our family whenever we catch up or bump into one another.
Julie’s relationship building coupled with her experience and knowledge of marketing homes meant it was an easy decision to approach her for help in selling our home. Since she has told us many times how much she loves our home, it wasn’t a surprise when she said she would be happy to work with us. We were thrilled when another young family starting out in the property market loved our home as much as we all have, and successfully purchased it at auction.
Julie is a true professional and has a calming effect on any stressful situation. For example, Julie confidently brought wisdom and her problem solving skills to the forefront when Auckland suddenly had to go into Lockdown due to Covid and interrupted our scheduled open homes. She kept us informed each week with a face-to-face meeting – or via Zoom during Lockdown. These were very informative and reassuring.
Julie also helped us purchase our next home and we have found her to be professional, experienced, positive, proactive, trustworthy and caring. We would be happy to speak with anyone who is thinking of approaching Julie to be their salesperson.
Thank you so much, Julie! We are so glad to have had you working with us – what a great outcome we had! We couldn’t be happier! "Michael & Gillian Camilleri, Te Atatu South - April 2021
"I would like to say a heartfelt 'Thank you' to Julie Hey at Barfoot & Thompson, for the amazing effort she put in to selling my property on Te Atatu Peninsula. The work she did behind the scenes on my behalf was truly appreciated. It saved me much time and effort and was carried out in a pleasant, professional and efficient manner.
This is the third house she has sold for my family over the last few years and on each occasion she has given 110% effort to obtain the best outcome in the market. Problems have been solved with a courteous, persistent manner and nothing has been too much trouble for her.
I thoroughly recommend her to anyone looking for a professional, caring and focused real estate salesperson."John Mucalo, Te Atatu Peninsula - November 2020
"My wife and I live in Sydney and recently sold our property in Auckland amidst the global pandemic event, lockdown, and mid-winter cold and rain. Despite all that, our experience was very positive thanks to the hard work of Julie and Shanthi, our salespeople representing Barfoot & Thompson. Right from the start, communications regarding the selling process, telephone meeting, and any other requirements were made very clear despite the two hours time difference between Sydney and Auckland. They would answer our queries promptly (sometimes even after working hours). Needless to say, they were the ones who organised all the necessary work to ensure that our property was in the best shape possible to enter the market. We are so grateful and wish for them the best in the future."Cynthia Anggiansah & Hioe Yoko Laya, Sydney - August 2020
"We are very pleased to have been able to sell our family home using Julie Hey as our salesperson. Julie was very professional during the whole process but still was able to give us her very special personal touch. During this whole process Julie kept us informed especially during the trying time of Covid-19. We wouldn't hesitate in recommending Julie for any further house sales. Thank you for being kind to us during a sad time for us."Dennis, Donna and Jodi - Te Atatu Peninsula, July 2020
"We found Julie friendly and very helpful in selling a unit in Te Atatu South. She went out of her way to help us as we were selling on behalf of a relation. She is very knowledgeable and we are very happy to recommend her to others."Lynn & Ian Bell, Te Aroha. May 2020
"Julie's passion for her job shone through in the cheerful, thorough and professional way she worked with us to find a home.
Julie was quick to respond to our questions and always available to view new properties. She knowledgeably guided us through the new experience of buying a home, highlighting what to look for in each property and ensuring we clearly understood each step of the process. Her assistance was invaluable and we will always be immensely grateful to Julie."Nishima and John, Purchasers. May 2020
“I would highly recommend Julie Hey from Barfoot & Thompson Te Atatu, to anyone looking to buy or sell. She sold my property at auction for which I was thrilled. Her standards are high and she went over and beyond my expectations. She dealt with Council for me and made sure that everything the potential buyers would need was available on the property. I found her honest. helpful and diligent. I would definitely have her as my salesperson if I was buying or selling again.“Norma Kennedy, Henderson Valley, March 2020
"Over the last 10 years Julie has successfully sold three properties for us in West Auckland. We have always appreciated her knowledge, attention to detail, her focus and ability to liaise well with lawyers and buyers. We have found her to be friendly, honest and reliable. We simply wouldn't go anywhere else!"Sue and Steve Beguely, Red Beach. March 2020
"Julie, we can't thank you enough for the amazing service, you have given us since we met nine years ago when you sold us our first family home. Since then, it has always been lovely to see your friendly face on the Peninsula, always sparing a few minutes for a catch up chat, and to update you on our house renovation project.
Once we decided it was time to sell our lovely renovated family home, plus a new build project at the end of 2019, we knew we couldn't look past your superior knowledge within the real estate industry, coupled with your friendly, professional approach to all. ( You are a true people person). You believe in your company's values and delivered on them all. We appreciated your energy in going that extra mile for us, with your amazing attention to detail, and fashion flare when it came time to prepare our two houses for sale. With your help Julie, both homes were presented onto the property market to a very high standard. We couldn't have asked for a better result, with both houses selling at auction. Thanks again Julie and team. We couldn't have wished for a happier ending."Diane and Tony Berben, Wanaka February 2020
"I am very happy with the prompt, professional level of service I experienced during the process of selling my home. Shanthi and Julie were totally committed to giving me excellent service and advice with prompt follow up to open homes and weekly reports to keep me informed of progress. I would definitely recommend Julie and Shanti to anyone considering making a real estate move as they go the extra mile to help produce a result. Thanks for all your help."B Agnoli, Te Atatu Peninsula - October 2019
We first met Julie when checking an open home in Central Park Drive in Henderson. The auction put it out of our price range but Julie visited our home later in the day and delivered lots of Barfoot & Thompson literature relating to buying and selling of homes.
It was some time later when we found a two bed villa in a boutique retirement village in Oratia and made the decision to move there. We immediately contacted Julie and she came around to our place with Shanthi and took us through the house sale process. Brenda and I knew we were entering a market where prices were depressed and auction sales more so; but Julie and Shanthi were not deterred and after an inspection of our property advised that auction would be a good option. Further advice was forthcoming on how to prepare our home for the promotional photo shoot and open homes.
Throughout the whole process Julie and Shanthi worked tirelessly, always with a smile and at the end of it all we have become good friends. The hammer coming down last Friday was the reward for all their hard work and Brenda and I are looking forward to making our new home in Oratia.
We chose to list our home with Julie after several recommendations from friends, and because she consistently checked in with us over a period of six months while we were getting ready to list our home, with useful advice and help. We're so happy we did. Julie has a genuine, professional, non-pushy way about her that put both us and our potential buyers at ease. In a flat market, we accepted a good offer on our house within days of listing it. When we then discovered we were missing a final Code of Compliance Certificate on our carport, Julie went above and beyond the job description, visiting the council in person and following up with them and us almost daily, until it was issued and our purchasers went unconditional. She's a delight to deal with and got us a great result. Highly recommended.Ellen Williams and Jonathan Bell, Te Atatu Peninsula, December 2018
"Dear Julie. Thank you again for your hard work in achieving a grand result. It was an absolute pleasure dealing with you, both in purchasing and selling since 2011."Jay and Nicky Sayer, Taupo, October 2018
"We would like to highly recommend Julie Hey to those people looking to list their property. From our first meeting, Julie was very professional and had all the information that we needed as a family, to sell our mother's home and to make the decision whether to go on the market or auction. When it came to the expectations of what we would get for the property, she did not put us under any illusion so she would get the listing. Throughout the process, Julie kept us informed, went the extra mile; to the point of supplying us with furniture to help show one of the room's potential. We had a very good experience and an amazing outcome. Thank you so much, Julie."Ball family, Te Atatu South. October 2018
"We have known Julie since 2007. In this time she has sold four houses for us. During each advertising campaign and open homes, she was very professional and ensured the prospective purchasers were fully aware of all the features of the house. We would highly recommend Julie as she went out of her way to ensure we got the best possible prices for our homes.
Thank you, Julie, for all your help."
"We realised Julie was the agent we wanted to buy a house from years ago when she was one of the only real estate agents that could remember our names (and they're simple names!). This initial relationship lasted for a long time as it took Julie nine months to find us a home. She stuck with us the entire time - not another agent from any other organisation focussed so heavily on us. Julie was instrumental in our success in purchasing a home just before the market boom. Had we not found a home I believe we would still be renting as prices soared soon after. Years later when it was time to sell our first home Julie, who we'd maintained a friendship with, was the only agent we decided to engage with. She had to work hard because our time frames were very short as we had bought our second home through Julie! It was another great experience and Julie was once again instrumental in us buying and selling. Unfortunately for Julie, she's done too well this time. We love our new home and don't intend to move for a very long time! Thanks, Julie"Chris and Mia Van Poppel - Te Atatu Peninsula August 2018
"I met Julie from time to time while walking my dog. When I decided to sell my property Julie was the obvious choice for an agent!!
I was pleased with my choice as she had my home sold within 24 hours of going on The Market!! I have never regretted this decision.
Julie was always helpful with general and presentation advice and she has plenty of useful contacts, which I was grateful for!!
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Julie as your real estate agent in West Auckland."
"We highly recommend Julie. Julie was so easy to deal with, hardworking, professional and honest. She has great attention to detail and knowledge of the local market.. Our house was sold so quickly and easily and we couldn't be happier with how it all went."Robyn & Daniel Fisher, Te Atatu South. July 2018
"I recently listed my property in Te Atatu Peninsula with Julie Hey (Barfoots). Her commitment to my property's sale was 100%. After listing, several problems cropped up - one concerning the Title and one the Council. Julie left no stone unturned in solving these for me and I cannot thank her enough for her hard work on my behalf.Joan Goodwin, Pt Chevalier. July 2018
"Being a person who does not suffer fools and likes to cut to the chase I found Julie to be a breath of fresh air in the real estate world when it came to selling my late mothers estate. Not wanting to entertain silly offers I needed to ensure the selling price was fair and reasonable within the current market. After a few days, Julie came back with a price, marketing plan and we listed the property. Suffice to say, after five days and four offers resulting in a sale at the listed price I couldn't be happier. The result reflects all the preparatory work and ongoing sales work that Julie did along the way plus I always felt Julie was working in my best interests. I have absolutely no issue recommending Julie to assist in the selling of your property."Mike Reilly, West Harbour. April 2018
We would just like to say how fabulous Julie Hey is! We cannot recommend Julie Hey more highly. We found Julie to be very personable, transparent, honest and professional. She helped us to find our family home which we will be ever grateful for. Julie does far more than you would expect from a real estate agent. We just wish we had met Julie when we were selling our property. Thank you so much, Julie, for your tireless efforts to help us purchase our home.Ron & Amber Aratema, Te Atatu Peninsula. March 2018
Julie, thank you so much for all the work you did for us, which enabled us to sell our house in Te Atatu South. We are as happy as can be with the end result, and will be able to go back to Australia with all the tees crossed and the I's dotted.
It was pleasant to follow the process as it happened, and we will be sure to recommend you to any other folk who may be thinking of selling their property. You were recommended to us by Becky Jones and we were happy to follow her lead.
Once more with feeling - Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!
Hi Julie, Thank you for your email and continued support, you have been absolutely fabulous to deal with. Everything has been seamless and you have helped us tremendously.Elaine and Alan Ma, Mt Eden, January 2018
We would like to highly recommend Julie Hey of Barfoot & Thompson, for the recent sale of our Te Atatu Peninsula property. Julie went far more than the 'extra mile', and she communicated with us every step of the way, along with exceptional attention to detail and being extremely efficient and approachable in all our dealings. We could have no hesitation in using Julie Hey and Barfoot & Thompson in the future.Glenis & Sheryl, Te Atatu Peninsula, October 2017
Our family have recently used Julie Hey from Barfoot and Thompson in Te Atatu Peninsula to sell our late Mother's home....From the start to the finish she has been a great source of information, advice and assistance....She is thorough and careful in all aspects of her job....We have really enjoyed her friendly and courteous manner. Her meticulous feedback and her market knowledge have certainly helped achieve a very good sale for us by using the auction format. We have no hesitation in recommending this very experienced real estate agent. Thank you Julie for all your tremendous hard work.Susan and Vivienne, Te Atatu Peninsula. October 2017
"Julie, thank you for your great effort in making the sale of Mum's house so smooth for us. Much appreciated!Michael & Elaine Martin, Grey Lynn. July 2017
"Julie and Shanthi recently sold our property in Te Atatu Peninsula. We found Julie and Shanthi to be extremely helpful, professional and honest when selling our property. We were always kept well informed during the whole process and they helped to make the selling process easy and as stress free as possible. Thank you Julie and Shanthi for all your hard work, great service and advice during this time."Lisa Fleming & Kevin Nolan, Te Atatu Peninsula. June 2017
"Julie Hey is someone who will go above and beyond for you. For her it's all about getting the best result for you. She is very experienced and trustworthy and I would recommend her in a heartbeat. She has become more than our real estate agent - she's our friend. Thanks Julie!"Ross & Sara Buchanan, Te Atatu Peninsula. May 2017
Dear Julie, You came into my life highly recommended to sell my house and rehouse me. You did all of that, giving me 110
professionalism and making me feel very comfortable. A first for me in the world of 'Real Estate' - a blast actually! You always greeted me in a warm and bubbly manner, like a good bottle of wine. You are a credit to the company. Warm regards Julie."
"We would highly recommend Julie to purchase from and to sell property as we did both of these with her over the last 7 years. She remained honest for both occasions and calls a spade a spade, which is a great attribute to have. During our recent sale Julie bent over backwards for us as we are now based in London; so she managed all the various tradesmen to enable our house to be ready for sale. Julie was very professional and communicated very well throughout the entire sale. We commend Julie and would highly recommend her. Many thanks Julie."Henry Wendelborn & Colette Farrer, London, April 2017
"A good friend of my mum has used Julie Hey before (in selling their home). They were extremely impressed with how Julie went the extra mile. When they recommended B&T they were actually specifically recommending Julie Hey. I have to say that, to date, I have never worked with a R/E Agent who has been so open, proactive, approachable, informative, communicative, goes-the-extra-mile and professional. I personally have bought/sold 4 homes in the past 5 years (in Sydney) and NEVER have I worked with someone like Julie. If only all Agents were as refreshingly fabulous as she is and if only we could replicate here over the ditch here !! Thanks so much Julie for all of your above and beyond efforts. It has been well worth the wait and your patience and perseverance has been phenomenal."Heather Busch, Sydney. February 2017
"To anyone thinking of selling their house...
Genuine, hardworking and trustworthy... three words that instantly come to mind when talking about Maree Currie and Julie Hey. Maree was recommended to us and Julie was an agent who had local knowledge and by bringing their different strengths together, they made an amazing team. They worked incredibly hard to get the best price for our house under difficult circumstances and we could not have been happier with the end result.If you want real estate professionals who take the stress out of the process, keep you up to date and are honest with the information you need to hear, then Julie and Maree come with our highest recommendation. The bonus is they are not just good at their job, they are good people as well. We would use no one else to sell our properties in the future. Signed "two very happy clients".
"Julie was recommended to me by my valuer daughter as the right person to sell my house and she was right. I found Julie to be excellent and very professional all the way through the process of marketing, photos, open homes and, lastly, how the auction would proceed. I would fully recommend Julie to anyone who was wanting an agent to sell their property."Audrey Mackay, Te Atatu Peninsula. July 2016
"We first met Julie at an open home she was presenting. Friendly, passionate and professional, she really shines a light on the properties she is responsible for.
We later asked her to appraise our own property with a view to sell it. She was generous with her time and really listened to and understood the value we placed on our family home. The arrival of our second child made us reconsider our move. Julie, as always, was considerate, respectful and never "pushy".
A year later, when the time felt right, we contacted Julie again and listed our home. We felt properly informed and thoroughly enjoyed the marketing process. We felt part of a strong team, confidently guided by Julie. She knew the property through our eyes, but had also researched to understand other details that would be of interest to the buyer. She conveyed information concisely, eloquently and accurately. We were regularly updated on viewings and buyer feedback. We felt supported throughout the auction and were delighted with the result, an outcome which exceeded our expectations. Julie continues to help us as we search for our next home.
Thank you Julie!"
"On a personal note - I just wanted to say - we think you are fabulous. You have restored my faith in real estate agents. You have gone absolutely above and beyond for us. Answering my myriad of questions, making late night visits to sort contracts, making phone bids, checking out open homes for us, searching your databases for new places we might like... and that is the extra stuff - not just the things that other agents do! You will be the first person we think of if/when we sell (if you wanted it of course) and who we look to contact the next time we want to buy!"Katy and Justin Perry, Te Atatu Peninsula. June 2016
"Julie Hey has been a wonderful Agent and has become a friend through this time of selling our home.
She has done everything and more to be of assistance to us. We would recommend her to anyone wanting
to sell or buy a house. Thanks again Julie, for everything."
"Picking an agent to sell your property is so important for the final result and when Julie Hey was recommended to us we went with the advice.
Absolutely could not have done better, every detail, any inquiry, keys to go here or there was no problem.
Her contact with council and knowledge of local conditions were so valuable to the final sale.
The marketing of the property was excellent. Marlene and I cannot speak highly enough about Julie, suffice to say you would be fortunate to have her as your agent."
"We wish to put in writing our gratitude and thanks to Julie Hey of Barfoots Te Atatu for enabling the sale of our Investment property at Massey to be facilitated in such a professional manner. Her care for the tenant and her willingness to keep us completely informed made selling a worry free experience. Her enthusiasm and pleasant manner will surely have vendors lining up for her services"Anne & Brian Conquer, Mt Albert. April 2016
"Julie Hey was very helpful and open in discussing what options I needed to consider in the selling of my property. She was extremely helpful in the sale of my property considering I had never sold before and was with me every step of the way. It made the process a lot less stressful and achieved a great result. I would have no hesitation in recommending her to any future sellers."Maret Bell, Henderson. December 2015
"Julie has been an excellent real estate agent. She was very thorough in her lead up to putting my house on the market. She met with my son and myself to discuss what to do and what to expect. She was very helpful in many ways and went out of her way to help prepare my house for photos and helped me clear out my books and other things that needed to be taken away.
She was very helpful when we went to auction and explained what would happen. When we didn't sell at auction she kept bringing other people around. When we had a good offer to buy she advised me what to do. I would recommend her to anybody who needed an agent."
"Julie provided us with an exceptional end to end service (She even provided independent advice after the sale to help us buy the right property in Australia) and was instrumental in driving a campaign that exceeded our price and time expectations. Throughout the campaign, Julie continually provided valuable market insight, advice and process information that allowed us to make informed and confident decisions. We would happily work with her in the future and highly recommend Julie's services."Luc and Dylan, Sydney, July 2015
"Julie was certainly a breath of fresh air as an agent. She provided up to date communication on open homes, reports and follow through. Julie was a delight to deal with and certainly we would recommend her to others. Julie is very good in her follow through and we are pleased she got the sale."Warren and Julie Gemmell, March 2015
"Julie hey has done an amazing job marketing our house. She has brought and sold one house for us before and every time done a great job; makes selling or buying a home a lot less stressful. I would recommend her to anyone buying or selling. We got a great price for our home more than we expected, thank you."Gavin Smith, June 2014
"Julie's warm and friendly nature made selling our house a much less stressful event than we had thought it would be. She relates well to people from all cultures and backgrounds, has a good knowledge of the property trends in the area, and did an excellent job with the marketing of our property. She was always honest, truthful and realistic with us and also with the expectations of both ourselves and prospective buyers. She did a great job of getting the right price for our property, although a colleague sold it, and was always very prompt at replying to our emails or phone calls. We would highly recommend Julie to anyone wishing to sell their property, and would definitely be calling on her again if we should sell. Thanks Julie - it's been a pleasure! "Tim and Lesley Hamer, Te Atatu South. May 2014
"My wife and I have sold a number of properties prior to meeting Julie.I can say without hesitation that Julie is by far the best agent we have met.
Her dedication to achieving the best possible result for her client is outstanding.She has displayed complete honesty and diligence and her mind set of achieving the best outcome for her client cannot be faulted. I would recommend Julie to anyone buying or selling a property."
"We cannot thank Julie enough for her hard work, dedication and determination to get the best result for the sale of our home. Her friendly, approachable manner; her enthusiasm, not only for our marketing, but for her job in general is nothing short of marvellous. She made what can be a stressful campaign at any time much less so, and not only did we receive professional, courteous and helpful advice selling our home, we believe we made a good friend into the bargain! We cannot recommend her highly enough."Neil and Helen Baxter, Te Atatu Peninsula, April 2014
"We purchased and sold our first home with Julie. She was excellent to deal with and always made an effort to ensure that we were well informed. When purchasing we found she gave us good guidance about the purchasing process and was fair to us and to the vendor. With selling she did an outstanding job of marketing our place resulting in great interest. Julie is a great communicator and always ensured we were informed of any developments with prospective buyers and understood our obligations during the selling process. She made the process much easier for us than we could've hoped for. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her."Andrew and Alice Veysey, Te Atatu Peninsula, November 2013
"Thank you for your calm and considered guidance, and your encouragement through the searching and buying process. Your practical suggestions were really helpful in informing my evaluations, final decisions, and the best steps through this process. I felt very supported by you and I think you are great at your job. I really appreciated your calm, patient and respectful approach to what I experienced as a challenging and at times stressful process which has at times extended me past my comfort zone in a variety of ways. I can see your clients really are in good and experienced hands. Thank you."Raewyn Knowles, November 2013
"I have used the services of this lovely lady before so had no hesitation in asking her again to market my property. She is friendly, approachable, genuine and such a hard working person; always at the beck and call of clients and will go out of her way to create complete customer satisfaction.

I feel a real connection with her and wouldn't hesitate to use her services again."Donna Warrington, Te Atatu South November 2013

"An exceptional experience. Would definitely use again and absolutely would recommend to others. How can you beat perfection"Sandy Livermore, Te Atatu Peninsula. May 2013
"Recommended to me; Dad dealt with Julie at few open homes in the past. Julie Hey is without a doubt one of the best agents and people we have come across. She truly is amazing and she does listen, not pushy, understands, cares and does what she promises she will do!!! Her enthusiasm, her sense of commitment, persistence, humour ... the list definitely goes on - she is second to none. She is the best - there is nothing she needs to improve!! I've never met anyone like Julie. We definitely couldn't have done it without Julie and we both feel so happy that we did have Julie to sell our house!! We would strongly recommend Julie to all!!"Mark and Mirela Hall, Henderson. July 2012
"Julie walked us through the entire selling process with a remarkable combination of experience and commitment, while remaining sensitive and empathetic to our particular challenges and anxieties. She is a delight to be around warm, funny and endlessly enthusiastic. Julie's knowledge of the market helped us sell our house within just one week of listing and we were very satisfied with the result. We recommend her highly to any prospective sellers or buyers."Doris and G. Osborne, Te Atatu South
"We have written a testimonial in the past for Julie but if there was anything to add to it, it would be that this is the 3rd property we have sold with Julie and every time she has either achieved or exceeded the price we were expecting on all of the properties. She sure knows her stuff when it comes to selling. We did have one other agent who had been in the industry a very long time come and appraise our last property. The reason we contacted him was due to his fees being a bit cheaper than Barfoot & Thompson. He valued the property at $260K. We ended up listing with Julie again (thank goodness) and we achieved $328K through an Auction programme. Well worth the bit extra in fees that's for sure! We're sure glad we got back in touch with Julie!! "Murray and Debbie Vercoe
Julie was an absolute gem and I would highly recommend her to any prospective vendor. She always went the so called 'Extra Mile'. Nothing phases Julie no matter how big or small the problem may be, she was there 100
all along the way for me, always happy to relieve any stressful moments that I encountered. She was nothing less than amazing during the whole marketing period of my home, and to me her proven record as a TOP SALESPERSON is reflected in her professionalism."
"We listed for an Auction Marketing Programme with Julie Hey from Barfoot & Thompson, which was successful and resulted in an unconditional sale on the day. We highly recommend Julie as she is amazing. Julie kept us informed regularly as to what was happening with our property. Julie's honesty, friendliness, extensive knowledge, positive attitude and commitment to sell our property were incredible. We feel Julie went the extra mile for us especially on auction day and we cannot thank her enough. Thanks again Julie. Best wishes.Judy and Brian Jellick, Te Atatu Peninsula
We found Julie to be totally realistic as to price under the present circumstances. Julie kept us informed on all viewers, their opinions and offers. Reports both verbal and written were received regularly. We believe Julie by her efforts allowed us to sell very quickly at a satisfactory price and her negotiating skills assisted in the overcoming of any obstacles. We have no hesitation recommending Julie to any prospective sellers or purchasers.Leith & Gloria Glogoski, Te Atatu Peninsula.
It's always difficult to choose the right real estate agent who will be the best person to sell your home. Luckily for us we picked the best agent to sell our home. We found Julie to be a friendly, helpful agent who was very knowledgable. She had a positive attitude about selling the house and went the extra mile. Especially with the market we are in at this time we have no hesitation in recommending Julie to sell your home.D. King & H. Rymer, Te Atatu Peninsula.
Julie is an amazing asset to your company and I would say an ambassador for Barfoot & Thompson 2nd to none. So this family and our extended family and friends are now sold to Barfoot & Thompson should we have to buy or sell our abodes in the future.Joop & Sonja. Sciarone, Henderson
