Auckland's Successful Team
Selling a home the right way doesn’t happen by chance… or luck.
Anyone can sell a home in a boom market,
but can anyone deliver beyond your expectations in any market?
I work with my wife Louissa Bao and between us we have 37 years’ experience in the real estate industry. Market knowledge, unbeatable customer service and powerful negotiating skills comes with that experience. Every day we strive to achieve optimum prices for our vendors.
I have been a local resident for 20 years and have earned a reputation as a true sales specialist in Epsom, Remuera, Mt Eden and surrounding areas. This includes everything from development sites to multi million dollar homes. My ability to build long-term relationships with all of our clients has helped to create a loyal client base based on referrals.
We both love property and we’re both passionate about matching people with their ideal home. For a confidential, no obligation market appraisal of your property, please call us now. You should not have to compromise to have the best, so let's chat about your future goals.

“It was such a pleasure working with John and Louissa in purchasing our property. They went out of their way in helping us with any questions or requests, and were excellent when working with an overseas vendor. I would highly recommend them and their support team who made our transaction all so easy and painless. Thank you John and Louissa.”Hayward, Michael & Alison - Purchaser of The Drive Epsom
"To successfully complete any real estate transaction requires a good deal of knowledge, enthusiasm, initiative, persistence, diplomacy and the ability to create a high degree of trust between all parties. John has proved to me he has all these skills and more. I have at all times been confident that he would do his utmost to achieve the result he could. He has kept me fully informed throughout the sale process and continues to work hard on my behalf.
I would be very pleased to recommend him to anyone requiring the services of a complete professional - he is a credit to the industry."
"Hi John, Thank you for bringing buyers to my house. As a Vendor I am totally blown away by your awesome, friendly & professional service."Steve
"Please forward to any other prospective buyers and sellers: John Zhang and Louissa Bao showed the highest levels of ethical and professional practice in planning, marketing and managing the sale of our house from the first enquiry until the house was sold. They also provided clear and friendly communication throughout the whole 3 week plus auction and post auction process. It has been a pleasure and easy to work with John & Louissa in the sale of our home. All communications have been clear, friendly and supportive of the family efforts in the midst of trying to get a sale. I highly recommend John Zhang and Louissa Bao as agents - second to none and highly professional and full of integrity - you have winners here."To'aiga Su'a-Huirua A highly satisfied vendor.
"We are writing to advise you of the excellent service we received from Barfoot and Thompson agents & Auctioneers, in the sale of our property at Seaside Ave in Waterview, at auction on Wednesday 24th March 2010.
We especially wish to thank John Zhang and Louissa Bao who were the principal agents for this sale.In addition we were impressed by the team of people whom we dealt with at the auction. Marian Tolich, Tim Carter , and Tony Loughran, who worked, as a team, to keep us relaxed and informed of changes, and who combined to get the best price that they could for us.
For three months prior to listing with John Zhang, (& with Barfoot and Thompson), we had received mostly negative feedback, we were without any offer from a different real estate company, and the bank was demanding an unconditional sale.
We found John to be organised, efficient, and positive each time we met. John was a pleasure to deal with, and showed real desire to get the best outcome possible for us. This gave us confidence that a sale would be achieved at the best price for market conditions, We would happily recommend John and the Barfoot and Thompson team to friends and family.Thanks again for the excellent work done and best wishes for the future."
