Having to date spent 35 years in the real estate industry (five years in my own business), I can truly say that I still enjoy my work every day. Meeting new people, and having the good fortune to revisit and list for sale the properties of past clients, who have become friends over the years.
Bearing in mind that our homes are usually the most valuable item we own, I work in strict confidence with both vendors and purchasers, always keeping in mind that while the vendor is the person who pays the fees, it is necessary to work with buyers also, to achieve the desired result, hopefully making the whole process as stress-free as possible.
My areas of expertise are Hobsonville, West Harbour, Whenuapai and Greenhithe. To me, people placing their trust in me, is the greatest compliment that can be paid, and I look forward in the future to assisting my clients to the very best of my ability.
"Professional Real Estate Advice Plus Results"
Having known Jenny and her amazing work ethic for well over two decades, we had absolutely no hesitation in enlisting Jenny’s wonderful services for the marketing and sale of our property in Hobsonville. From the outset of this process, and for some time prior we hasten to add, Jenny’s advice and guidance with regard to our property has been excellent and extremely diligent and thorough. With her many years of experience in the field, Jenny’s knowledge and expertise of both the area of Hobsonville/West Harbour and it’s real estate is absolutely unparalleled.
Jenny is always wonderfully approachable, engaged and totally focused on the job at hand. Jenny is very hardworking and, as far as we are concerned, she has gone way beyond our hopes and expectations when it comes to her efforts for us in preparing the property for marketing , explaining to us the marketing options and processes and, after informative discussions, implementing these on our behalf and actually taking the property to market.
Currently residing overseas and with the current added issues relating to Covid-19 etc, it gave us a huge peace of mind to know that Jenny was there for us as our “eyes and ears” on the ground. Jenny most certainly went above and beyond what could ever be asked of or expected from any real estate salesperson. Our property having previously been tenanted, Jenny organised, on our behalf, for the property to be brought up to scratch, enlisting the services of relevant professionals and even her own family!!! Thus allowing the property to be presented to the market at it’s very best.
Jenny’s communication with us throughout the whole process was perfect. Regular updates were very much appreciated and definitely helped to keep our minds at ease. No question was ever too big or too small, and an honest and thorough response always promptly given. We should add that this was our first experience of the whole “Auction“ scenario and Jenny guided us through it with the upmost care, diligence and support for which we sincerely thank her.
At the end of the day, Jenny worked tirelessly on our behalf throughout the whole marketing campaign and achieved us a sales figure with which we were extremely happy. Jenny’s wonderful enthusiasm and genuine love for her role is completely fantastic. Her professionalism and efforts are second-to-none.
We wish Jenny all the very best, thank her for making this whole process a really positive experience and, most importantly, we wish to highly recommend Jenny’s services to any future prospective clients, vendors or purchasers!Elizabeth & Richard Guest
We have worked with Jenny for many years selling and purchasing many properties for our family, and we can't say enough positives about her. Jenny always goes above and beyond what is expected of her. She made us feel comfortable and appreciated and did all she could do towards the sale of our house.Monaghan Family
My fiancé and I just purchased a home in Te Atatu Peninsula and I just wanted to say that Jenny was amazing to deal with and has been since we met her years ago. Nothing was too much effort for her and she has stuck with us through the long journey of finding the perfect house to buy. We've always found her to be reliable and honest, and she knows what we like (and don't) in a property, and that's why she's been helping our family for as many years as she has (My soon-to-be parent's in law have listed with her previously and are listing with her at present as well). We all think she is a gem and is so pleasant to deal with. We're so pleased to have her as our agent and that she was able to help us in particular with our latest venture, and we wanted you to know that! If we ever have any property needs it has and will always be Jenny we go to.
Jenny Thorpe from Barfoot & Thompson West Harbour office recently marketed and sold my property at Suncrest Drive. Jenny also originally sold me this property over 20 years ago. I just wanted to drop you a quick note to let you know how pleased I was with Jenny's management of the entire sales situation from go to woah. The home was being sold as the result of a marriage split and Jenny was particularly sensitive to the related issues, at times having to play counsellor (to my ex) as well as estate agent. What an extensive set of skills this amazing lady has!
Whilst the property did not sell at auction, Jenny went on to quickly secure a buyer at exactly the price we were looking for. Jenny's advice was sound right throughout the process and the marketing materials she produced were first rate.
As I mentioned, we purchased this house from Jenny over 20 years ago and her continued maintenance of a relationship across the years secured a listing with Barfoot & Thompson when it was time to sell - skilled and smart. Truly an asset to your business! Have a great day.
Just a word to say how impressed we were with the effort that Jenny put into the sale of the property, both prior to and after the auction. She worked tirelessly to get the job done, and in the end, was very successful.
We have dealt with Jenny on a number of occasions over the years for the purchase and sale of property and have always been impressed with her integrity, work ethic and salesmanship.
Malcolm and I would just like you to know how much we appreciated Jenny Thorpe during the sale of our home in Hobsonville. She couldn't have been more helpful, kind and yet thorough. You are a good firm and we appreciate you.
Thank you so much for supporting Sam and Helen in their quest to find a home. I know you were Ted and Adrienne's agent but you were very honest and upfront with the kids and gave them good advice. Look forward to settlement date and helping them move into their lovely new home!!!Sue & Fraser Dockery
We recently sold our house at auction with your company at the West harbour agency. Our agent was Jenny Thorpe, who completed the sale of our home to our complete satisfaction. We found Jenny to be a very professional sales lady in her manner and a lovely lady to deal with, always keeping us in the loop at whatever stage we were at, we would think she must be a great asset to the company,Laurie & Jenny Gibbs
We would like to take this opportunity to send you some feedback about your wonderful sales agent, Jenny Thorpe. She didn't ask for this endorsement......we asked her who could we write to and she gave us your contact details.
It was our pleasure to have Jenny acting on our behalf for the recent sale of our property located in Royal Heights. Throughout the entire process, beginning with Day 1 and finishing with a successful conclusion on Auction Day, Jenny acted with total professionalism, courtesy and friendliness. Her enthusiasm for the property bubbled over right from the outset and that continued with the Open Home days and the regular and thorough reports she provided us with immediately afterwards, either by phone or in person. She kept us informed right through the month long marketing process and, to our delight, managed to get our property on the cover of Western Homes publication. Although we know she had other buyers and sellers she was acting for with her daily workload, she made us feel that we were her primary focus - although we're quite sure she would make all her other clients feel the same way ! We would thoroughly recommend Jenny to any prospective Vendors or Buyers. She is honest, trustworthy and a joy to deal with. In any future real estate dealings we would use Jenny, and would not even consider another agent. She will always be welcome to pop in for a coffee any time .....or a chilled glass of wine on her way home !
"I have known Jenny Thorpe for some 12years now and she has acted for me on the sale of 2 properties now. Jenny is a real gem lady , and professional to the hilt. Her pleasant personality and her people skills are second to none. I have just gone through a marriage breakup which made it very hard for Jenny dealing with me but also my wife but it was handled beautifully, and I would have no hesitation in recommending her to any future clients.Jack Fordyce
"Jenny help us sell our home in Parakai at relatively short notice. She acted professionally throughout and provided sound guidance for this, our first house sale. Jenny was enthusiastic every time she turned up to host our weekend open homes and provided a good brief at the end of each, letting us know who was keen and a probable bidder come auction time. She followed up with each of the prospective bidders as the auction approached and we had a great turn out on the day.
The resulting sale price was well above our expectations. We would not hesitate to recommend Jenny to our friends, family or workmates if they ever need to buy or sell a house. Needless to say we'd also happily use her services again when the time comes.
Jenny was fantastic everything we asked Jenny to look for and do for us in regards to us selling our property and the buying of another property was done professionally we got updates every day which was great our Open Homes where run like clock work I would recommend Jenny Thorpe to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a propertyPatricia Monaghan
"This letter is to confirm that during the course of the last 9 years Mrs Jenny Thorpe has completed six property transactions on our behalf. We have found Jenny to be completely honest, open and courteous, and above all has worked very hard for us in a thoroughly professional manner on each of these transactions. We have been delighted with what she has done for us and a friendship has developed. Jenny is more than welcome in our home for any reason or purpose at all times."Kerry Hoggard, Remuera
"Dealing with Jenny was great from the start to finish. She had excellent area knowledge and brought some great ideas about the house to help me improve the sale price. Her recommendation of taking the house to auction worried me, but she was able to put my fears to rest and achieved a better price than I had hoped. I put the great price down to her hard work and driving through the open homes and the whole process. Jenny will be the only one I will be buying and selling through from now on."Andrew Pook
"We recently purchased and sold our previous home in West Harbour. Both transactions were handled by Jenny Thorpe and I cannot recommend her highly enough. During the purchase Jenny was at all times very professional and careful to be fair to both sides. We felt her advice was well considered and aimed at meeting the needs of both parties. Once we had made an offer on the property we had no hesitation in asking Jenny to handle the sale of our current home. Throughout the process we found Jenny to be completely professional and helpful. She was very astute and managed the sales process very well, ensuring a positive result was achieved."John O'Hara, West Harbour
"Thanks for all you did in helping us sell our property. You have been a most pleasant visitor to our home and deserve the success your enthusiasm and professional skills give you"Stuart & Margaret Manins, Greenhithe
"We engaged Jenny Thorpe to sell our home as we had purchased a previous property through her and were very happy with the level of service she provided.
She appraised our home and advised us of the market price at that time but due to the property market decline we failed to sell at auction. Jenny persevered throughout the duration of the sale process and consistently provided feedback on the state of the market and the options available to us.
Her persistence with the open homes and the showing through of potential clients was exceptional and her outstanding efforts were rewarded with the sale of the property."
"Jenny has sold my parents the property 12 years ago and so when it came to the very hard decision to sell their home, they both had to move into a rest home, they decided to ask Jenny to market their home and to do so within the quickest timeframe. Jenny's attention to detail, her explanations of the market and her regular updates, even visiting my parents in their rest home, was truly appreciated. A good result was delivered three weeks later at auction. Thank you Jenny you did a fantastic job."Julie Carney
"Jenny always works with the upmost professionalism and integrity. Her enthusiasm for her role, coupled with a courteous and friendly nature makes her an asset to purchaser and vendor alike. Jenny's knowledge of the area is exceptional, which is vital when developing a market strategy for those selling and finding the right home for those who are buying. We have used Jenny for both the selling and buying processes and from our experiences with her we would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone."Greg & Judith Barnett
"We bought our current house 11 years ago from you. We were so impressed with your service and decided if we ever sell, would contact you again.
When I contacted your office in February13, I was so pleased to know that you were still working in the same branch after all these years.
You did not disappointed us at all.
Your high degree of service, enthusiasm, honesty and constant communication was genuinely impressive.
I really can't recommend you highly enough.
The best of the luck for the future"
"It was a great pleasure to deal with Jenny from start to finish. She left no stone unturned and went to great lengths to assist us. Her enthusiasm was tremendous throughout. We have absolutely no complaints and recommend her to others. We originally purchased the same home through Jenny some 8 years ago and had no compunctions in contacting her when we were looking to sell the property as we were equally impressed with her at the time of purchase."Ron and Pauline Ranger
"Having used Jenny to sell property in the past with great results, it was never a question as to who to ask this time around. Once again Jenny did an excellent job with great professionalism but yet in her person and friendly manner. Our property sold well over reserve at Auction and we would have no hesitation in using Jenny in the future - although we hope to stay long enough in our new home for Jenny to be enjoying a well earned retirement."Kenneth and Lyndell Wilson
"I would have no hesitation in recommending Jenny Thorpe to any person who is intending to buy or sell a Real Estate property. You can expect full co-operation and effort in all areas, at all times from Jenny."Peter Mc Mahon
"Jenny is extremely experienced in the West Harbour market, and we know from previous experience that she negotiates well for her client while not being afraid to put offers that other agents might be nervous to put.
We have been in the house just sold for 25 years. Jenny sold it to us, and sold our then existing house for us. It is the experience we had with her then that caused us to contact her this time. She did not disappoint, and I think our expressed price expectations were quiet daunting for her.
Jenny is aware we are interested in finding a local property for our son to purchase, and she has been very helpful in that regard while also making very useful suggestions about other areas north of Auckland that may be of interest to him.
Altogether, working with Jenny has again been a positive and enjoyable experience.
