About Jacqui Vaughan-Kells

I have lived in Grey Lynn for over 25 years, have raised my family here and you could say that I "know the hood"; the local schools, parks and community events and activities. I am well known and respected within the community.

With my husband having been involved in a number of city-fringe residential projects, I have had the unique opportunity to observe the local property scene over a number of years and am keenly aware of and passionate about the real estate landscape.

With over 30 years' experience representing both international and luxury brands as a national sales manager, I have the skills and experience to "bat for you" when you need a top negotiator to get your deal across the line. Backed with my mantra of clear, frequent and honest communication, you can be confident that you and your family will be well represented when you need it the most.

Hard Working
I am well known for my sound work ethic and am passionate about ensuring buyers find their right home and sellers achieve the results that they are after with as little disruption to their daily life as possible.

With a great sense of humour and style I am friendly, I really care about my clients and I listen more than I talk. When you have me by your side, you can trust that you are in the most capable hands.

Knowledge and skill with a strong work ethic and a sense of style - Jacqui Vaughan-Kells

What my clients say

From the outset, Jacqui was extremely proactive in sending me regular links for houses to view, and accommodated my timeline to see them. She is extremely perceptive, and immediately understood my likes and dislikes, knowing time could be a wasted by taking me to undesirables.

Within a period of eight weeks, Jacqui had found me my perfect home, which I am very lucky in this current housing climate. On the day of auction, I had the wonderful Dayle bidding for me, which was such a bonus with the experience and expertise that he brings. The team of Jacqui, Kath and Dayle, made my overall experience a pleasant and stress-free one.

I cannot recommend these guys highly enough!

Helen Ryan

Wonderful Service..took all the stress out of marketing my home..easy and pleasant to work with.. so supportive...

Renie Armiger - Rawene Avenue, Westmere

Jacqui and Kath were outstanding. They made the whole process transparent, put us at ease, were friendly, and nothing was to much trouble. They always kept in contact throughout the whole process making it easy. They also showed compassion towards our family for what was an emotional proces, selling our parents home.

We have nothing but high praise and count ourselves very lucky for the service that we received from Barfoot & Thompson. Our salespeople explained the process, supported and gave us sound advice all the way through the process. They listened, were warm, friendly, professional, sensitive and transparent. The service was outstanding and we would 100% recommend Barfoot &Thompson.

Jacqui & Kath

Thank you both for your advice and support in helping us sell our much-loved family home. Your communication was outstanding and with your experience and guidance we achieved a result beyond our expectations. Thank you both so much for making this process a smooth and successful one.

Many thanks again

Ange & Jörn Lieskounig

We would like to convey how impressed we were with Jacqui and Kath in marketing and selling our home in Grey Lynn as soon as we came out of Covid-19 lockdown.

They had to both navigate a ‘new world’ of selling real estate with all of the social distancing rules and the anxiety of a worldwide pandemic. This would have been quite difficult. Yet they were nothing short of amazing! They gave us their honest professional opinions when prompted and took away any stress that we were feeling about the current global situation. We had no face to face communication. It was all done via phone, text and email and this felt effortless. It was decided to sell by negotiation. As soon as we had signed all the paperwork, they took the reigns and we left them to do what they do best - sell houses!

We were not disappointed! Within the first five days of marketing and open homes we had five offers presented to us - and we duly accepted one that we were very happy with. All of this was achieved post Covid-19 lockdown when the whole country was feeling quite uncertain about the future.

Their professionalism, their Kiwi ‘Can Do’ attitude, their willingness to just get on and do it, their lovely personas. This all equated to a fantastic result that we were ecstatic with.

We would not hesitate at all to recommend Jacqui and Kath as top real estate salespeople to market and sell your property. Thank you so much Jacqui and Kath.

“We bought our Grey Lynn house through Jacqui and Kath who were amazing to deal with. They were super-efficient whilst being extremely personable.

Nothing was ever a problem and we have no hesitation in recommending them.”

Mary & Mike Stokes

Thank you so much for all the hard work and resilience in closing out the sale of my property. We would not have got across the line without your tenacity.


David Hook

We were impressed with professionalism of the team of Kath, Dayle and Jacqui in selling our house. They set out a realistic timetable and provided regular feedback on progress. There was no pressure and they gave sound advice regarding the sale and auction process, the price and other important details re vendor disclosure. The marketing fees were very reasonable.

They stressed the advantage of the broad network of Barfoot & Thompson salespeople to increase exposure. In addition they worked the property themselves and stressed that they handled only a few properties at a time to help them concentrate on the sale process.

We were very pleased with the end result re the price and the sale.

Nigel & Lyn Andrews

We would like to thank you and Jacqui and Dayle for all your work with the open homes and the successful auction. You made the whole process work seamlessly, and took all the stress out of it. It was a pleasure to have you working for us. You all have a very professional manner, and a good knowledge of the market. You gave us good advice and achieved a very good outcome.
We would certainly recommend you to anyone wishing to sell their property.
Kind regards,

Lorraine & Paul Coe - Pt Chevalier

Searching for a house to call a home in the Auckland market has been an interesting, and extremely frustrating endeavour. We have been searching high and low for 4 years, and have come to see the good, the bad, and the ugly with the houses on offer - and this is, interestingly, the same observation for the service and approach from a variety of real estate agents over the years. The bulk of the agents we have dealt with were not really interested in helping us find homes beyond their own listings at that time. Jacqui, however, has been the one of the very few shining examples of real estate agents out there who treated us like *people* looking for our home, and not just buyers so she can close a sale. Jacqui kept in touch throughout several months for listings we may be keen on - she took into account our wish list, the area, our budget, and our personalities (!) with the kind of homes she'd suggest for us. I have never come across a real estate agent quite as thorough, knowledgeable, passionate, friendly, and all-around awesome as Jacqui. She's not pushy, and genuinely enjoys helping people find their home. She takes pride in her work and it shows - I have recommended Jacqui to several of my friends and colleagues who are also looking for their homes, I know they'll be well taken care of, and their house hunting experience will go to the next level with Jacqui. I honestly can't recommend her enough!


I would like to express my appreciation to Jacqui Vaughan-Kells of Barfoot & Thompson Grey Lynn for her wonderful approach to market my property for sale. She worked so tirelessly on the process from the moment the property was listed, bringing her personal touch to customer services by going over and above what I expected with her great enthusiasm. She has a high level of communication and was available at all times to discuss any concerns. Along with her strong marketing campaign she provided a great representation of my home, showing nothing but professionalism. I would highly recommend Jacqui to anyone wishing to sell or buy property.
