I have lived in Franklin most of my life and enjoy being a part of the community. Real estate started to appeal at the age of 19 when I purchased my first property through Nick Bates, who is now my Branch Manager. This led to a career selling real estate in 2012.
In the first two years, I began by working within the top 2% (in New Zealand) of an international company, where I underwent intensive training. This experience molded me into the salesperson I am today.
I am driven to be an industry leader. I believe that focusing on your needs and working all hours of the day, together with my extensive local knowledge and negotiating skills, will be instrumental in bringing your real estate goals to reality.
My goal is to create competition between buyers to leverage the highest price from the market, resulting in the best result for you. I'm young, enthusiastic and my high level of professionalism and work ethic makes me one of the new generation young guns in the industry today.
My broad local knowledge is at your disposal, so please don't hesitate to give me a call.
"Helpful and easy to deal with. Kept me up to date with data, phone calls and emails. I felt that they were really working on my behalf to sell the property".Lynne
This is the one word we have to say about Jason and Chris who, with a short two-week time-frame from initial consult, marketing to "SOLD" within three days of going on the market with a fantastic result for our property. Both Jason and Chris were extremely professional, respectful, listened to our requests and followed through with commitment. It has been a pleasure to work with you both and we would highly recommend you to any seller.
Thank you both so much for selling our lovely property. We were very impressed with how professional you both were. Nothing was too much of a problem. You catered for our needs brilliantly and never wasted our time once. It was especially noticeable how you worked really hard for your vendors which is something we all want and need. Your honest straightforward approach is a credit to you and Barfoot &Thompson. If anybody is wanting real quality salespeople, then we would never hesitate to recommend Jason and Luke.
We will miss the interaction with you. Thanks again, we wish you good luck and fortune in your profession.Neil & Deb
We had a great experience working with Jason and Luke to secure a dream property for our young family. Both were easy to deal with, very approachable and went above-and-beyond to assist the parties after hours during the negotiation and sale process. They made what could have been a very stressful time, relatively stress-free with open and clear communication and the perfect amount of humour. We absolutely recommend working with Jason and Luke. Great team!Tom & Nat
Our lifestyle property was on the market with another company for over 13 months with very little activity. Jason had our house under contract after two open homes over 18 days with four offers on the table for us to look at. He is enthusiastic, motivated, professional and reliable. Jason was pro-active with following up the buyers and we could see this through his reporting back to us. He will keep you informed every step of the way. We would highly recommend Jason to sell your property. He really cares!Troy & Janine Yeoman
We were introduced to Jason by a friend in the real estate industry, so knew he came highly recommended. From the moment we met him, we knew we were in good hands. He explained the sale process and our options, but also listened to our ideas. Throughout the process he never made us feel under pressure to make any decisions. We had two counts of multiple offers, all of which the Barfoot & Thompson team handled with a huge amount of patience, explaining our options to us. After doing only one open home, Jason was able to secure a sale for our property. A great result.Anne & Johannes Smal
"We had our house on the market for three months with another agent with very little interest. We changed to Jason and we had more hits on the website and more visits to the property in the first three weeks than we had in the entire previous campaign. Jason's energy gave us renewed energy to present our house in the best way. We appreciated being kept up to date with all client responses, always presented honestly.
Jason is not the cheapest salesperson available, but he produced great results in a short time frame in a slowing market. The photos were excellent! The brochure was impressive (did our house really look that good?!?), attention to small details. Extremely professional and friendly approach. Amazing collection of goodies to welcome us to our new home. Thank you so much!"M & E Lloyd
"I found Jason to be able to connect well in communication with any generation. He has a gentle, persuasive manner to get business moving without feeling stressed. I felt able to leave the business of selling in his capable hands."D Plumridge
"Jason was very professional and client-centred from the initial meeting. He was very good at understanding my objective and negotiated a sales plan taking this into consideration. He, and the admin team were professional, friendly and transparent the entire process. I wouldn't hesitate to use Jason and Benade Helman again and can confidently recommend them to others. "K Edwards
"I found Jason exceptionally professional and personable throughout the entire selling process. His communication style and tone, along with his work ethic was impressive throughout. I would highly recommend Benade Helman due to Jason's performance."D Kehoe
"We were very impressed with Jason in the sale of our property at Parkway. We had had our property in the hands of another agent for nearly 12 months, during which time the property was sold, subject to sale which didn't eventuate.
We found Jason to be energetic, proactive and ready to listen to us. He returned our phone calls promptly and kept us in the loop in the negotiating process. He did not pressure us into accepting a price but simply gave us the options.
Jason always made us feel we were valued clients and we would have no hesitation in using his services again or recommending him to friends."R & S Ryan
