For Jeff Stretton, property isn’t just a career; it’s an interest, it’s a passion and it’s a lifestyle. He has renovated a number of homes himself, owned a lifestyle block, carried out rural subdivisions and has experience in commercial property. With his wealth of knowledge on the ever-changing property market, Jeff is in a superb place to advise you on your real estate needs.
Listening to the client and understanding their needs is what Jeff lists as the number one requirement for a real estate agent. He believes that great communication is the key to a successful client relationship and that forward planning and excellent organisation are the keys to a successful sale. Jeff has five years’ experience in the industry and has picked up many important skills over this time. His thorough nature and exceptional customer service continually satisfy his clients, and he produces great results without fail.
Jeff’s specialty is currently residential real estate – but that’s not to say he doesn’t have expertise in other areas. He has cast his net far in terms of areas he’s being involved in. Originally trained in the horticultural industry, his career has consisted of horticultural management roles, owning and operating a small chain of retail stores in Central Auckland for 19 years and undertaking rural subdivisions. One 4 year project involved the re creation and establishment of a wetland in order to gain consent for subdivision. His work experience has been varied, and he is better off for the experience; more knowledgeable and with more skills at the ready.
If you are looking for a real estate professional who fully understands all facets of the market, call Jeff Stretton today. He’ll be more than willing to share his wealth of knowledge.
Throughout the whole process I found Jeff to be very genuine, thoroughly honest and professional. Jeff took the time to listen to me and to learn about the property and showed a genuine interest in doing all possible to get as many prospective buyers through. He kept in regular contact at all times... Going the extra mile on my behalf never seemed to be a problem. Thanks to Jeff’s dedication and astute work, several interested buyers attended the auction and my house sold for a price I was extremely happy with.Andrew Sullivan
Barfoot and Thompson have acquired one of the best when it comes to Jeff. He is an amazing guy and my wife and I will be forever grateful for his fantastic efforts in promoting and selling our property. Jeff is not a pressure guy he just speaks from so much experience. I would not hesitate to use Jeff’s services again and of course I have already forwarded his contact details to friends in the housing market.Alan Rayner
Jeff was fantastic. We gave him very little time.. only about 10 days, and he got us on line, excellent photos taken and 45 groups through all in 10 days! His patience, understanding and commitment was second to none. We were very happy with the result of the sale. I would thoroughly and whole heartedly would recommend Jeff to anybody trying to sell their house especially in our area. Thanks JeffAlex Webb

Jeff did an excellent job Marketing our property & achieving a great pre auction offer.

Thanks Jeff!Richard McLeay
When I met Jeff, he was very approachable, friendly and offered an appraisal straight up. He rang two days later and followed through straight away. As a result of him keeping in touch after the appraisal I decided to list my home with him within a month or so rather than 18, I had envisaged.
Jeff worked very hard from the onset of the auction programme and, most particularly, in the last few days leading up to the auction. We had 100 groups through and he had a good number of bidders on the night and as a result we sold at 53 percent above the CV.
I would have no hesitation in recommending him whatsoever, and have already done so. Jeff was pleasant, respectful and knowledgeable. If he did not know an answer, he went to find out.
