I was new to selling a home as I bought many years ago. Kristina made me feel at ease with her bubbly and positive attitude. Nothing was too much for her. She was able to help with any inquiries I had. Kristina worked tirelessly throughout the campaign. She is professional, friendly and just a great person, so made it easy to go with her to sell my home.
I would not hesitate to use Kristina again in the sale or buying of a home. She is fantastic with stellar results that speak for themselves, very happy with the outcome.
Thanks Kristina. You are a great person with great work ethic!Shane Hill

Kristina was highly recommended to us by our neighbours when they sold their home. We were so happy with the professionalism and drive Kristina displayed when selling our home. She is a cheerful and bright woman who is honest and takes your investment very seriously which is greatly appreciated. Kristina has an eye for detail and works extremely well under pressure, always remaining calm and focused. She helped with the final touches which led to a very successful outcome. We most highly recommend her for when one is selling their home and we will continue to refer people to her. We wish Kristina only the best!
Please let me know if you have any questions!
We are certainly grateful for your hard work!!!
Happy holidaysMichele & Marc Danneels
Hi Lika & Kristina,
Many thanks for your great efforts in getting my property sold quickly! Kristina, your pleasant personality is appealing to both vendors and buyers. You have the good interpersonal skill or should I say magic, to achieve instant intimacy. It's such a joy to work with you. You have great passion for work and are so energetic. Your vendor's report in great detail did "WOW" me a lot. I never expect a girl so young as you can work so hard. You are born to be an salesperson.
Lika, you are smart, experienced and professional. Your experience did help a lot in solving problems, especially crisis. I was impressed by you when you clearly remember every detail when you first knocked on my door one year ago. These made me believe that you are good at following up things and have great attention to detail. So I decided to list my property through you. The success proves that I'm not wrong with it.
Saull, thanks a lot for your great efforts in dealing with multi offers situation. Especially you have been working so late to get things sorted out. I'm so impressed.
CheersBrian & Carol
I just wanted to take a moment to share our thoughts of working with Kristina. I note that I have omitted to do so the past few times, not due to her fault, but rather my work-load and call out that she is so modest she didn’t even push me for them
As you will know we have worked with Kristina a number of times now, both as a selling as well as buying salesperson. Whilst we have worked with a number of salespeople in both capacities in the past, its Kristina’s energy and attention to detail as well as clearly understanding the target buyer and how to attract them, that keeps us coming back to her.
Her communication is clear and honest even when at times its not what I (we) want to hear, but we always appreciate the honest advice and it has led to us making the better decision because of it.
Her dedication to getting the job done combined with a great level of detail means that I can sit back and know that its being handled and handled with great care and focus, something I am not known for doing by nature.
I don’t want to give her too much praise so she doesn’t get too big of a head, but for us she is the perfect salesperson and we love working with her.
Rest assured we will continue to use her services and through it Barfoot & Thompson’s for future opportunities, which knowing my wife wont be too far away.
Kristina well done!! Thank you.René
Well where do we start! We first meet Kristina when she was selling out next door neighbour’s house and she was so lovely to deal with, always bubbly, positive and keeping us informed with everything that was going on that was appropriate. This was great as we lived down a shared driveway, so it was important. We saw her professional and confident dealings with everyone she encountered, and this was fantastic to see after some of the horror stories you hear about salespeople.
So, when the time came for us to engage an salesperson for our own house sale there was only one choice!
Kristina guided us so seamlessly through the whole process with her stress-free and positive attitude. As it was our first time selling a house it was quite stressful and Kristina helped us with exactly what we needed to do with her expert knowledge and experience.
Kristina helped us get the house ready for market, she understood and accepted my particular ways to ensure the house was photographed/presented beautifully for marketing.
Kristina was always available for my many many many questions and queries. She was even happy to help us with advice on the purchase of our new property and rental options. Nothing was ever too much of a bother for Kristina. She made us feel like she was on the journey with us and we were not just a commission.
She guided and advised us through the whole sales, marketing campaign process through to auction day with her professional and personable manner. I truly believe we would not have achieved the fantastic result we did with the sale of our house on auction day without Kristina! With her help we can now move onto the next part of our journey in life with our next property and I can't thank Kristina enough.
Words really truly don't convey how wonderful Kristina is and I highly recommend her to anyone who wants to buy or sell a house, you will not be disappointed. She is a credit to Barfoot & Thompson and the real estate industry overall!
As long as we live in Auckland, we will never use another salesperson!
Once again thank you Kristina you are amazing, and we can't thank you enough.Mel & Josh - Royal Heights
Thank you so much for everything you did for me during the sale of my house. There literally couldn't have been a more suitable person to do it!Tom Robredo
"I would like to say thank you to Kristina for helping us buy the house. An awesome salesperson and person. I'd recommend her services to anyone buying or selling. All the best for a great life."Luu &Trang
We approached Kristina when we were looking for a house to buy. Kristina was more than happy to act as our salesperson, even though we were buying and not selling. We really feel Kristina put 100% into finding us the right home and bringing it to a successful conclusion. If it had not been for Kristina we would not have ended up with our ultimate home. We would not hesitate to use Kristina and recommend anyone looking for an salesperson to please contact her. An awesome salesperson and person.
I am so pleased I used Kristina as my salesperson when selling my North Shore property. Her enthusiasm, positive energy, willingness to go beyond the call of duty and ability to close the deal made the whole experience for me a stress free and seamless process. She always managed things professionally, and especially as it was a difficult time to sell during the Covid19 lockdown. I’d recommend her services to anyone buying or selling.Stewart Harris
"Peter and Margaret Hanna would like to thank Kristina Clarke and Lika Devito for the care and guidance given to them on the recent sale of their home in Campbell's Bay. They did a great job in keeping us informed at all times, it was much appreciated."Peter & Margaret Hanna
I have had the pleasure of working with Kristina for the last six months while she has been trying to find me a section to build on, in the Orewa, Red Beach areas. We have had our share of ups and downs, but she has never let up on her desire to find me something suitable, and she succeeded. I have worked in the building industry for 49 years and have had dealings with a lot of real estate agents over that time.
I can honestly say I have never met anyone as professional, conscientious, friendly and co-operative as Kristina. Her communication skills are second to none, and if she doesn't have the answer you're looking for, she will find it out for you quickly, and keep you updated as she does so. Nothing is a problem for her. I cannot find one fault with Kristina, and I am sure she is going to have a long and very successful career in real estate.
I would strongly recommend her to anyone in the industry, especially to the clients she meets.
All the best for a great life Kristina, it has been a privilege meeting you, working with you, and becoming a friend.
Kristina and Jamie are the complete package. They worked with us from beginning to end. They found us a home to buy, helped us get our house ready to go to market, prepared us for open homes, looked after our dogs during private viewings, kept us informed with great communication, guided us through negotiations with buyers, and worked with us and with multiple parties to get a deal signed that worked for everyone involved. They recommended services for building reports and managed to arrange a last-minute professional carpet cleaner at 4:30 pm to clean that evening before we moved.
They were even there helping us on moving day! We would not be in our dream home today if it were not for Kristina and Jamie.
"We cannot recommend Kristina and Jamie enough to buy your house (especially if it is the first one). This power duo was so active, considerate and patient. I love how Kristina is always reachable and easy to talk to. We viewed more than 20 houses in a month!!! And got our house in a month or so. They are always available and always had our back. Kristina and Jamie also gave us tips and tricks about the housing market and knew what we will like within the first few open home visits. The best agents first home buyers can ask for."Raman & Nimish
"Kristina has been on the ball from our very first house viewing. She is super friendly and extremely efficient and helpful in getting the sale done. Thank you so much, Kristina, for helping us buy our first kiwi home ❤️"
Thank you again.
Location, location, location is often touted as the catchcry for successful real estate sales, but for this very enthusiastic team it was professionalism, courtesy and dedication. They were fantastic to deal with, leaving no stone unturned giving us all the sound marketing advice, preparation and assistance that was needed for the presentation and sale of an estate property. This resulted in the best possible outcome which exceeded our expectations. From placing on the market until the auction date was only 14 days. We absolutely recommend the team of Kristina and Jamie to anybody seeking to get the maximum return from a property sale.Jeanette Baker and Jacquie Lillie - Newhaven Terrace
Best Agent Ever! Nothing is ever too big or too small for Kristina. She was great at the follow through/up. Her attitude is very positive and I feel she has done the best for both me and her seller. I can't recommend her enough, she really knows her business. Kristina made me feel that I was the most important customer and she was very easy to talk to. If you are looking at buying or selling please talk to Kristina, she'll make it happen!Yvette Croft
She knows it all! Kristina is amazing to work with! She knows the market, worked hard and communicated proactively to help me find the house I wanted and needed. Always available she makes the process a breeze.Diego
Kristina really helped us from start to finish with buying our first home. She really took the time to explain the ins and outs of how everything works and answered all of our questions. She was so onto it and listened to our requirements. Really made the process so easy! I would very highly recommend.Ellie Bonner
Kristina was great in helping us sell our property. She communicated extremely well and was able to answer any question we had with ease. Kristina went above and beyond to assist us and was always friendly and reliable. A great professional in selling your property.Shigemi Haddow
"We'd been considering putting the house on the market for a while and Kristina helped us make that decision happen. We had one week to get the house market ready and we absolutely couldn't have done it without Kristina's and Jamie's amazing help! Kristina's positive outlook, resourcefulness, helpfulness and cheerful demeanour was very much appreciated in such stressful times. She walked us through the entire process, heard our concerns and helped us move past every roadblock to get the results we wanted. The house sold at a price we are happy within eight days from listing. This meant less hassle for us, less worry about viewings and open homes and our family was able to get back to our normal lives while having to make such big decisions. Thank you, Kristina and Jamie."Ming & Hamada
We would like to thank you again for all the effort you have put into helping us to find our ideal home. We appreciate your thorough understanding of our needs and sincere desire and dedication to help our dreams come true. It was a real pleasure to get to know you and enjoy your sparkling personality and cheerful attitude which helped to make our house hunting time less stressful.Igor & Natasha
Kristina did an amazing job on the sale of our property. I recommend Kristina to all my friends now. Kristina is not focused only on getting the sale done, she tries to understand customers needs and issues. She is very respectful when the situation is delicate for the sale. She gave us time to decide, not pushing too much. During the negotiation, she always gives us good advice and let the decision to be ours. And as a plus, Kristina is so good with kids. She understands parents needs and restriction regarding time to talk, noise, crying kids. .. Kristina has a friendly personality and is around her is a pleasure for me. I wish I have more houses for Kristina to sell. Maybe in future.Gisele - Lyford Crescent, Sunnynook
I have recently sold a property through Kristina and for the first time selling a property has been a positive experience. Right from the outset Kristina was engaging, positive and focused on me as the client and selling the property. The marketing campaign she recommended and ran was second-to-none and consistently had really high engagement from prospective buyers both online, by email and telephone, at private viewings and at open homes. Kristina's communication with me, the vendor was excellent, with regular face to face catch ups, telephone, text and email contact. She was readily available and highly responsive and she listened to what I had to say. Throughout the process, I was never in any doubt that Kristina was doing her utmost to sell my property and that she was working for me, the client. She shared her knowledge and expertise willingly but the decisions were left to me and she supported me all the way and was very encouraging. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Kristina and I would use her again if the need arises.Kristine - Sunnynook Road, Sunnynook
Kristina's extensive knowledge of the market and drive to find us the perfect first home just blew us away. We would highly recommend Kristina to anyone looking at buying or selling property as her enthusiasm and professionalism was beyond outstanding.Brooke & Jonathan Havill.

Kristina always goes above and beyond in her role and I would have no hesitation to recommend her to friends and family.
