I chose real estate as a career because I've seen how it can help people into their dream home, especially during these difficult times. I've seen the value of having a truly professional salesperson guide people through the buying and selling process. I am delighted to have been given the opportunity to work alongside Aaron Cook at Barfoot & Thompson's Auckland City office.
Aaron has received the following awards from Barfoot & Thompson:
#4 Sales Partnership, Overall to end March 2021
#1 Sales Partnership, Overall 6 months ending September 2020, and
#1 Sales Partnership, Central Auckland Region, 6 months ending September 2020
His knowledge and dedication to his clients is inspiring. Together with my ability to understand and communicate in Mandarin, we make a good team.
Barfoot & Thompson is a non-franchised privately-owned real estate company. Their model allows any of the company’s 1,700+ salespeople to introduce buyers and share information on any property that is listed, without regional restrictions. This increases the reach of property campaigns and creates competition for clients. Barfoot &Thompson has a market share of 40% in Auckland, which means they sell one in three properties.
With a background in marketing and being a stand-up comedian, I have strong communication skills, a positive attitude, and I love to help clients as they go through their real estate journey.
If you're looking to sell your property, please contact Aaron or me for a successful result and experience!
"Thank you for your services in selling our apartment on Vogel Lane and achieving a record price for the ALPHA Apartment Building. A cash buyer, and a quick settlement was really "the icing on the cake" for us. We have been very impressed with the service we have received from you both, from the time we listed the property right up to the sale settlement. We were kept fully informed with comprehensive updates every few days from Jaye, and lengthy telephone conversations with Aaron when we debated the state of the market, and the adjustments we needed to make to the asking price. Aaron's negotiating skills were responsible for the purchaser raising his offer by $25K to meet our "bottom line" price. This was an exceptional effort in the current difficult market conditions.
We are truly grateful for your efforts on our behalf."Trevor & Marilyn Elwin
Thank you both so much, for helping Nicola and I successfully sell our apartment, in a difficult market. We really appreciated your approach, right from our initial discussion where you’d clearly done your homework on an optimal sales strategy for this market, and realistic but ambitious pricing guidance that was objectively supported by the deep apartment market experience you offer.
The viewings phase was well organised and low stress for us, with the prompt communication leaving us feeling well informed of progress. Ultimately, you delivered us an offer aligned with the upper end of what you said we could realistically achieve, and sellers can’t ask more from their salesperson than that. Very happy with our experience selling with Aaron and Jaye.Samuel O'Malley
Aaron and Jaye are highly professional, straightforward and transparent in their dealings. They provided market insights and data to back any decisions we had to make during the sales process. I felt respected and able to ultimately make my own decisions throughout the process of selling my property. In the end we were able to sell at a price I was happy with in the challenging Auckland market. I would be more than willing to work with them again and would highly recommend them.Alesha Godinho
"We are grateful to and impressed by the expertise and perseverance of Aaron Cook and Jaye Xu (Barfoot & Thompson), in selling our apartment in difficult circumstances, brought about by the Covid epidemic which virtually closed down central Auckland where our apartment stood. We can recommend them to potential sellers and purchasers without hesitation."Gary & Lis Nicholls
Aaron and Jaye were always helpful whenever there was a question that I had. They did a great job in helping me prepare the property for sale, and keeping me updated. I would highly recommend Aaron & Jaye for buying or selling your home.Amy Zheng
