We found Barfoot & Thompson so professional and helpful during a stressful time of buying and selling. Not having sold a house for 13 years and in Covid-19 times, the salespeople were so good at making sure we were always well-informed during the process. It was not only a rewarding experience but during the process we really connected with the salespeople.James Costello
We would like to acknowledge the superb service and result from the sale of our property by Jim Liu and his team at Barfoot and Thompson. His approach was meticulous and he accessed every possible purchaser from families right through to developers. We had both a pre-auction offer and then a large number of bidders at the auction which achieved an outstanding result.
Our thanks an appreciation to Jim and Barfoot & Thompson for the both their efforts and excellent process.
Jim’s consistent work ethic exceeded our expectations and we would not hesitate to recommend him to any vendors and would certainly use both Jim and Barfoot & Thompson again in the future.Nick & Sarah
Very happy with the professionalism shown in helping us right from before open homes to auction. Didn't pressure us to sell, very open about the market and feedbacks. Very pleased with the professional service provided by Jim and his team at Northcote Branch.Sze Lai
"Selling a property from afar has inherent problems, especially as we, the owners, were not on site to work through issues as they arose. The lockdown due to COVID-19 also added extra complications. We, therefore, needed a respected company and most importantly an salesperson we could fully trust to handle the sale on our behalf.
Jim Liu from Barfoot & Thompson, Northcote branch came highly recommended from two other sources. After meeting Jim and listening to his proposal we felt confident he was the best person to list with.
What appealed to us from the start was his honesty, his enthusiasm, his obvious passion and sincerity in everything he did. The clincher was his extensive industry experience, his knowledge of our target market, and his advice of how to do things right. Once we accepted his proposal, everything flowed. We followed the plan he advised, and everything fell into place with minimal fuss.
His plan involved staging, cleaning work, minor repairs and adding some planting to the area outside the unit to add appeal. The marketing plan was appropriate for the property, consisting of open homes, private viewings, and exposure on all the relevant social media platforms. Throughout the process he did all the usual things you would expect in terms of keeping us up-to-date with buyer interest and market feedback.
Due to COVID-19, the weeks leading up to the auction were stressful, especially when it became obvious an on-site auction was not possible. Jim kept in close contact with prospective buyers and was confident an on-line auction would work well. The auction itself went extremely smoothly, with multiple bidders, and a financial outcome that exceeded our expectations.
Was it stressful? A little
Was the process easy to understand and implement? Yes
Did we have doubts at times? Yes
Did we lose faith in Jim? No
Were we happy with the outcome? Yes, unreservedly. Jim exceeded our expectations in every respect.
If you are looking for someone to sell your property on the North Shore, we can thoroughly recommend Jim Liu. He will get the job done efficiently, effectively, and most likely exceed your expectations!"Barry & Barbara Larsen
Jim Liu from Barfoot & Thompson, Northcote, was recommended to us by a friend. As soon as we met him, it was clear that he would best represent our property in Campbell’s Bay. He has an impressive knowledge of every sector of the market and we explored in depth the best way to get a good outcome.
It’s been quite a journey as we listed initially as New Zealand went into lockdown. Jim remained positive and adjusted our campaign to meet the changing environment. We were so impressed by his thorough, professional and strategic approach; this man is a dynamo working really long hours for his vendors. He kept us updated almost daily, and weekly we received a comprehensive written report. We sold in under a month with a very good outcome.
We have no hesitation in recommending Jim and his team to anyone wanting to list their property.Rachelle Borsteinas & Craig McEwan
We are extremely pleased to recommend Jim and his associate, Raymond. Jim was our agent for the sale of our property in Bayview in June 2019. Once we met him for the first time, it was not difficult for us to figure out how well and accurately he knows about the property market. Throughout the whole process, it was clear to us that he was genuinely working "For US". His communication was timely, precise, professional, knowledgeable, and informative. Thus, we were fully informed so that we were able to make any decision promptly and effectively. His professional work brought us the results. The number of people who turned up and bid at the auction was beyond our expectation. We got the result, which is the best result. We believed that his meticulous and strategical approach made it possible. Jim created the best result at the time that the property market was NOT active.Christina & Gus LIM - Bayview

This weekly report also outlined visits to various real estate and social media websites. We were amazed at the number of people and agents who visited our home and attended the auction. Jim worked very hard during the auction process to gain the best price for our home.
We have nothing but admiration for his professionalism and work ethic and have no hesitation in recommending Jim as a real estate agent for the sale of residential properties.
