I have been enjoying and excelling in my real estate career on the Hibiscus Coast and surrounding area, for the past 15 years. Getting properties SOLD for premium prices and within appropriate time frames, is what I do best.
I provide a very personal ‘hands on’ service, I work hard, predominately by myself, and I will be responsible and accountable for your marketing campaign. I will conduct open homes, report to you, handle buyer enquiries, and coordinate the many other behind-the-scenes facets that go into the successful sale of your home.
I will never carry more than a handful of listings at any given time which allows me to be totally dedicated and focused on your result. However, I have the strong combination of myself and the power of the Barfoot & Thompson team. As soon as you list your home with me, 1,500+ salespeople from over 75 branches Auckland-wide will be made aware of your listing. This will increase the reach of your property campaign and create competition.
I take pride in my reputation for getting the job done well and with minimum stress to my vendors. After an initial consultation with you, I will tailor-make a marketing package based on my recommendations to suit you, your individual budget, home, and circumstances. There is no ‘one size fits all’ in my business.
Specialising in auctions and achieving some impressive strike-rates and prices, I can also offer and explain to you the many different marketing methods available. You can choose which you prefer.
Not all salespeople and companies are equal. Please give me a call if you are thinking of selling your property and find out why me and Barfoot & Thompson are streets ahead of the rest.

"When we met Kathryn, we formed an instant rapport with her. We were rookies when it came to selling at auction, but Kathryn helped us through the process and was always willing to answer any question no matter how small. Kathryn worked with us to sell our house quickly without compromising our sell price, as she knew time was of the essence due to us having put an offer on another property. She genuinely wanted the best outcome for us. She maintained excellent communication throughout the entire process of selling our property. Kathryn was willing to work around our commitments in regards to organising times and dates for inspections, signing of purchase agreements, open homes, etc. to minimise disruption to our busy family life. Thanks to Kathryn we are now settled in our new home. If we were ever to move again we would definitely sell through Kathryn."
Thank you.Amanda Robinson
We would like to say, Coral and I were thoroughly impressed with the professional manner and the advice we received whilst going through the sale process. Your enthusiasm, commitment and communication along with your sense of humour made the whole sale/auction process straightforward and dare I say, a pleasure, and realised what we believe a very good sale price.
Could you also pass on our thanks to Craig the auctioneer.
If we have any friends wishing to sell we will certainly recommend you.
SincerelyJeff & Coral
Kathryn was so incredibly proactive throughout the whole sale process and nothing was too much trouble. We received clear, concise and professional advice on the best way to market our property and Kathryn stayed in touch daily with updates on every person who came through our open home, and thanks to her proactive marketing, there were MANY! The auction process was painless and we would recommend Kathryn and Barfoot & Thompson to anyone even considering putting their home up for sale.Kirstie Baker-Slater
Kathryn was recommended to me by a family member, when It came time to put my Stanmore Bay house on the market. Kathryn has been absolutely wonderful to work with and has stayed focussed during some challenging times while endeavouring to sell my property. Please consider her for marketing your property as she has been excellent for mine.
I just want to extend my heartfelt gratitude for your dedication and service to my family. The manner in which you sold my father's house, your enthusiasm and communication and all, made you amazing to deal with and we felt that we were in good hands throughout. Further, the extensive efforts you made in assisting my father and also myself and my wife and kids, is deeply appreciated.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to anyone looking for someone to buy or sell a house!
Warmest regardsMatt Anthony & Family
Kathryn made the whole process of selling our house really smooth even though it was quite a complicated situation. A buyer was found really quickly but they had a house to sell and their buyer also had a house to sell.
Kathryn kept across the whole chain and made sure that from our point of view, it went without a hitch – whereas I know there were a number of things to overcome. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Kathryn going forward – could not have been happier with our experience.Deb - Army Bay
After six failed attempts at purchasing a property, the last person we thought we would be compelled to write a testimonial for would be the realtor. However, after being successful thanks mostly to the help and support of Kathryn Binks - we absolutely do!
Kathryn Binks is an honest and genuine realtor and someone we were lucky to have help and guide us through our purchase journey. We felt thoroughly supported by Kathryn who would keep us updated at every step, and provided invaluable guidance and advice that ultimately resulted in a great outcome for both ourselves and the vendor. Thank you so much Kathryn! We can’t wait to move into our home in beautiful Stanmore Bay!!!Dal & Mel
Kathryn Binks came to us and was an absolute pleasure from the beginning to the end of our sale. She has made our family extremely happy.Bennett Family
Working with Kathryn Binks at Barfoot & Thompson has made the process of selling our parents house stress-free. Kathryn communicated in a timely, professional and knowledgeable manner and gave thorough feedback on the market.
The advertising campaign had a broad reach and the end sales result during an unprecedented time of a national Lockdown due to Covid19 was outstanding! Kathryn is determined, works tirelessly, is awesome to work with and this alone made the process so much smoother for everyone involved.
I highly recommend using Kathryn!The Somerfield Family, Whangaparaoa, Auckland
"...I recently appointed Kathryn Binks from Barfoot & Thompson's Whangaparaoa office to market my home at Wade River Road, Arkles Bay. After meeting with other agents, Kathryn stood out to me due to her positive approach, experience and personality. I made the right decision appointing Kathryn, as she put an effective marketing campaign together which resulted in an attractive offer being presented after only a few days and a sold sign two weeks after launching my property to the market.
The best thing about working with Kathryn has been her efficiency and availability. Kathryn always answered my calls and questions promptly and her communication skills are outstanding. I felt very assured that my property was in very capable hands and I was kept fully informed at all times. Kathryn totally exceeded my expectations in this area as in the past I have found agents to be slow and poor at giving feedback and returning calls.
I would strongly recommend Kathryn to anyone looking for a hardworking, competent agent who goes the extra mile to achieve outstanding results for her sellers".
"...I have recently engaged Kathryn Binks of Barfoot & Thompson as the sole agent for the sale of my home and income property in Manly, Whangaparaoa. Before selecting Kathryn, I received a number of proposals from various agencies, but Kathryn's confidence and straight forward approach together with her local knowledge and experience in successfully marketing and selling home and income properties stood out from the others. I was immediately impressed by Kathryn's approach to the marketing of my property and together with her photographer they captured the true look and feel of the property enabling it to be presented at its absolute best. Kathryn also demonstrated considerable skill and expertise in adapting the marketing approach and keeping potential buyers informed as the campaign progressed in order to maximise the number of bidders on auction day. Being based in Wellington, I needed to have a high degree of trust in my agent and having Kathryn as the key local contact point throughout the marketing, viewing and overall sales process has proven to be the right decision. I would highly recommend the services of Kathryn Binks for her knowledge of the local home and income market, professionalism and total dedication to achieving the best result for my property."James Grassick
"...She has proved to be hard working, thoroughly honest and a diligent salesperson and has returned my faith in the real estate profession. I would recommend Kathryn to any person present or offshore to handle your assets as though they were her own. Kathryn always kept me up to date with the state of play, often working late at night when I was in different time zones. Thank you Kathryn for your untiring efforts in achieving three successful sales on my behalf."Peter McGrath
"...we would highly commend Kathryn, who went out of her way to keep us informed during the marketing campaign, and supported us during, and after the auction. We would give her high marks for the support, during, and after the event.
We made the right decision."
"...Kathryn has just completed the fourth property transaction for us, we have now purchased two properties and sold two. We have formed a solid relationship with Kathryn based on excellent service, performance and results! Kathryn has really excelled herself on our latest property sale and we
thoroughly recommend her services."
"...I have found Kathryn to be extremely professional, totally understanding in every regard and a real pleasure to work with. She has a really nice bubbly personality, is very genuine and made the whole process very easy. I will be definitely utilising her skills when purchasing my next property in the near future."Sam Lister
"...I was apprehensive about the auction method but I couldn't have wished for a better outcome. Whilst I was overseas I felt fully informed at all times and totally confident in Kathryn's abilities."Barry Read
