About Joanna van Workum

Recognised as an Outstanding Property Manager

As a professional and dedicated property manager, I know and understand the market, and the pressures and uncertainties of owning a rental property. Having been with Barfoot & Thompson for more than 12 years and with a lifetime of business experience in the service industry, my desire for excellence has been supported by a calm demeanour with an organised and disciplined approach.

Over the years, I have developed excellent communication skills allowing me to relate to a variety of people from all walks of life and ethnicities. I promise to take the headache out of managing your own property. My goal is to make being an investor easy for you.

I am honest, fair and reasonable which ensures that you see smooth transitions between tenants. These traits, along with my 'can do' attitude, my ability to problem-solve and my commitment to completing tasks in a timely manner, gives me a solid foundation for my role as a property manager.

As a self-motivated manager who understands the level of trust landlords place in the hands of property managers, I will manage your property with the same care and attention I would manage my own. I understand that our clients have come to expect a very high standard of service and am committed to maintaining and enhancing that.

My support network includes rental assistants Amanda Johnson and Helen Lyons, who have had many years of property management experience with Barfoot & Thompson's Mt Eden branch. Steven Longland joined the team in 2019 coming from customer-based roles in the telecommunications and hospitality industries and more recently a property manager for high net worth entrepreneurs.

This team will work enthusiastically to make sure your investments are hassle free.

What my clients say

Barfoot & Thompson have done everything it should have done as manager of my rental property. The staff I have contact with are on top of their game and do everything I need them to do. I am happy with their management of my property which they have been doing for the past eighteen months to two years.
Robyn Steffensen

Thanks for the wonderful work you have done for us this year. I don't think we have ever had such an efficient, willing and considerate property manager. Have a Merry Christmas and a happy holiday.
Maureen and Jim Ball

I wish to thank you for the manner in which you have managed our property for so many years. It has been a pleasure to work with you, in particular given our distance, you have always responded and assisted me in a very professional and efficient manner. I will always keep you in mind for any other property that we need managing.
Vince Sinagra

Service is personal, prompt and the staff are very professional and knowledgeable. I have two properties with the team and they take all the stress out of managing the tenants and maintenance for me. If there is something I need to be made aware of, they keep me well informed.
Oceanus Ltd

The Property Managers have been wonderful. They have located a suitable tenant on two occasions as soon as the property became vacant. Communication has been excellent. Payments are prompt and on time. Two monthly inspection reports are received without fail. Excellent. I wouldn't want to tenant a home without them.

"My two properties are with your office in Mt Eden and you, Amanda & Helen have been fantastic."
Deirdre Mellamphy

"The Mount Eden Rentals team has made my OE an excellent experience. I have been living in Dubai for over eight years and still have complete confidence that my investment is soundly protected. They always will provide sound advice from their extensive experience. Joanna van Workum has been excellent. I have had a lot peace of mind because of her work. She provides regular updates and always makes suggestions appropriately in regards to repairs and general management. She is one of the main reasons I will continue to stay with Barfoot & Thompson."
Andrew Posa

"Barfoot and Thompson, Mt Eden distinguish themselves by providing a high standard of service. They seem to me to use experience in the property management sector to achieve a consistent outcome that is excellent for landlords and also fair to the tenants they select for residential properties."
Derek Ion

"My observation in Wellington is that the rental services offered by well recognised real estate companies fall well short on quality of services and their rates are just far too high. The small firms on the other hand do a good job. However, they quickly grow the number of properties to a stage that they cannot be responsive anymore. I find Mt Eden Rentals team continues to be excellent in servicing its tenants and the landlords. I wish you could manage our Wellington properties too."
Partha Sarathy

"We find Barfoot & Thompson Mt Eden?s rental department to be professional and efficient. We?ve also noticed a high level of integrity, which is very comforting as we live elsewhere. We wouldn?t hesitate to recommend their services to any-one, in fact we would say Barfoot & Thompson Mt Eden provides a classic example of excellent customer service."
Savanthi Jayawickrema

"I would like to let you know what outstanding service I have received from your rental team and in particular Joanna Van Workum. She has been extremely professional in dealing with, what could have been an awkward situation when re renting my property. It was all done in a very businesslike manner. Dealing with Joanna has been a real pleasure for me. I will be recommending her to any future clients I may have."
Adele Clegg
