Frank and Ketiesha are proud sponsors of the Mt Eden Normal Primary School.
I and my family are very appreciative of your excellent support that obtained a great result today. Hard work, perseverance and a thoroughly professional approach paid off in circumstances that were not altogether straightforward.We were and are very grateful for all your premarketing efforts when we were not able to easily attend to these issues ourselves; and as to how you handled the last few days which were a bit of a roller coaster! Well done and thanks again.
Kind regards from the clan…
"Recently my mum sold her Mt Eden home in a Level 3 Lockdown in Auckland. This could have been a very stressful and uncertain time, however Ketiesha and Frank assured us she could get great results in this environment and helped us with every step of the process. They managed all the eLvel 3 protocols effectively and managed to get a large amount of active buyers through the house. While my mum needed to be out of the house for a few hours every day we were able to bring the auction forward because of very strong interest. Ketiesha and Frank kept in regular daily contact with all my family, updating us on each viewing and giving us as much information as possible to assist in our decision-making. We ended up getting an excellent result for my mum with an extra $800,000 more than we were expecting from the sale."Emma
In May this year we used Ketiesha and Frank to sell an apartment we had in Wynyard Quarter. It was the sixth time we had used their services to either buy or sell a property. As always, the service they provided was not only highly professional and skilled but we knew we could rely on their integrity to get us a best possible result. The quality of the marketing materials and the marketing schedule they produced totally matched the audience we were trying to reach. They assisted us with presenting the property correctly and held our hands through the nail-biting auction process.
We have always been able to rely on Ketiesha and Frank and now Frankie for their industry knowledge, their attention to detail and their outstanding customer service. If you want to deal with a team with integrity that you can trust, I could not recommend them more.
Ketiesha and Frank recently sold our Mt Eden house for us. As we live in London, we had to trust Ketiesha to do everything for us...from arranging & liaising with cleaners and tradesmen, to getting the house staged to show it off at it's very best for open homes. Ketiesha was fabulous...treating the house as if it were her own, and keeping us informed all the way through the process. We had a great result on auction day and couldn't be happier. Would have no hesitation, whatsoever, in recommending Ketiesha, Frank & the team to anyone wanting to buy or sell in the Mt Eden area.
Thank youKaren & Mark
"I thoroughly enjoyed working with Ketiesha and Frank on the sale of my property. They are very professional and have outstanding knowledge of the local market. But they are not only fabulous at their job, they go about it with a lovely warm, friendly and relaxed manner that makes a potentially stressful process very easy. They achieved an outstanding result for me and I wouldn't hesitate in recommending them to anyone else looking to sell."Lesley-Anne
Having bought and sold property many times, we know the importance of having a strong working relationship with our salespeople. And it really felt like Frank and Ketiesha were on our team from day one. They provided advice and guidance to ready the house, optimised our marketing and advertising, and were by our side on auction day. Their expertise not only saved us in up-front spend, but achieved a sales result that outstripped our expectations.
This is the first time we have used Barfoot & Thompson and after this experience and outstanding result, we have every confidence in recommending.
This is the third house we have sold with Keteisha and Frank, and we could not have asked for better service. They were very knowledgeable about the local market, gave a very accurate price indication, did a very impressive marketing campaign, and were a joy to work with. No hesitation in recommending to other sellers.Jane and John Warner
The service I received from Ketiesha, Frank and Frankie was exceptional in every way. The staff at the Barfoot & Thompson Mt Eden office were helpful, courteous and obliging. I want to thank Ketiesha Elliott, Frank and Frankie Excel and Barfoot & Thompson most sincerely and profusely for their expert advice and hard work in the recent sale of my home. This is the third time Ketiesha has helped me to buy or sell a home. I heap praises and gratitude upon her!Elizabeth Holowell
Frank Excell and Ketiesha Elliott have just sold our unit in Mt Eden. We could not have wished for better agents. They were everything we were looking for when we started searching. Frank and Ketiesha are a very professional and polished team. Their communication was excellent and they took all the stress away. It was a fantastic experience and we were very happy with the outcome. Thank you.Ivan and Janet Zanich
Ketiesha and Frank, recently managed the sale of our house in Epsom and delivered a great outcome for us, again. They have been our "Go to Team" as we have purchased and sold houses in Sandringham, Mt Eden and Epsom over the last nine years. They are honest, up-front and always keep you as the number one priority. The offer great ideas on how to present your home to make it look its best and attract those quality buyers.
To be able to rely on them delivers a stress-free process for us, all things considered, and we always feel we have achieved through them the best price possible. When we look to shift again, we'll be giving Ketiesha and Frank a ring.
"Thank you Ketiesha and Frank for making the sale of our house an easy and stress-free experience. Your knowledge of the market and great communication made the process easy. Our confidence in your expertise came from previous experience of course, with this being the third house you've sold for us over the years."Anna and Mark
Frank Excell and Ketiesha Elliott handled the sale of my home unit in Mt Eden. They were a pleasure to deal with from start to finish making the process an enjoyable experience. From the day I showed them the unit to the day of settlement only took several weeks. Frank and Ketiesha were very efficient, communicated well and achieved a good result.Robert van De Lisdonk, June 2018
We knew of Frank and Ketiesha from looking for a house for our daughter some years ago. We were impressed that Ketiesha had remembered features of our house from when we bought it through Barfoots and obviously liked it. This, added to Frank and Ketiesha's strong sales record in our area, made the difference in our choice of agents to sell on our behalf.
We were not disappointed, as their whole process was very well thought out, detailed, and transparent.
We felt that both Frank and Ketiesha were always going the extra mile in helping us to present and market our property, and we also found them very easy and pleasant to deal with.
We are very happy to warmly recommend Frank and Ketiesha, and the Barfoots team.
We engaged Ketiesha and Frank to market and sell our house, after some research and discussions with a number of real estate agents.
They are warm, friendly, professional, knowledgeable and reliable. They know the Mt Eden area really well and are up-to-date with what is happening in the housing market in general. They have a wide network of colleagues and maintain good relationships with potential house buyers.
It was a pleasure working with Ketiesha and Frank as they showed genuine care for us and for our home. They worked very hard, in a difficult market, and we were extremely pleased with their work, and the result.
If you are considering selling your home and live in the Mt Eden area, we would definitely recommend Ketiesha and Frank, they didn't get to be the number 1 sales team in their office by accident!
"We sold our house in February this year and Frank and Ketiesha made our selling experience one that I would recommend to any potential vendor.
I think what we noticed most was their honesty and openness about what was happening at the various stages of the marketing process and their ability to clearly communicate with us.
They work really well as a team offering their different strengths in real estate and having individual personalities that complement each other.
We will definitely use them again for any future property sales."
"From the first meeting, the service provided by Ketiesha and Frank was slick and seamless. They made everything so easy and helped achieve the right result."Deborah, November 2016
Ketiesha and Frank did an amazing job marketing and selling our much loved family home.
We first met them 17 years ago when we were house hunting and they were the natural choice when we decided to sell. They were helpful, hardworking and enthusiastic. They did their research well and they dished out good honest advice on what we needed to do to present our home at its best. They eased us through the stressful selling process and did so with a sense of fun. Their communication was spot on.
Ketiesha and Frank... thank you, thank you, thank you! The price we achieved at auction was incredible, despite a slowing market. We would not hesitate to use you and the Barfoots team again and we wholeheartedly endorse you to all.
"When the decision to sell our property was made, the choice of which agents to use was easy as Ketiesha and Frank were the agents when we purchased it some 17 years ago. This, and the fact that they are two of Barfoot & Thompson's top selling agents proved to be a very wise decision.
From our very first meeting we knew that our trust was well placed. We received savvy advice without all the spin, just as we believed we would. Their commitment to us and the sale of our property was so comforting as it was genuine; a rare commodity these days, sadly. Throughout the whole selling process their communication and campaign advice proved to be absolutely spot on. Ketiesha and Frank had an A,B,C and D plan should we need it, and of course we didn't. The property sold well beyond our expectations and set a new record in the area for heritage apartments.
I can honestly say they are the best people to have on your team and could not recommend them more highly. Whether buying or selling real estate in the future, Ketiesha and Frank will be my first contact as they are such an effective team with their clients' best interests always at heart. Thank you both for your energy and enthusiasm and making this such a stress-free experience."
"Frank & Ketiesha are a great team. In complementing each other they eased my doubts and concerns, and fully addressed my questions & queries with a positive caring attitude. Their invaluable experience was highly evident in their professional approach and the pleasing results."Sue, July 2016
We were after a successful agent; someone who was motivated and enthusiastic to succeed. What we got was a Dynamic Duo! Complimentary in skills and experiences Ketiesha and Frank delivered; Confidence, Success, Energy, Knowledge, Clear concise communication and a Plan. They delivered on driving the process and outcome. If you want the best outcome, go with the best people; Ketiesha and Frank at Barfoot & Thompson Mt Eden.Tony Staub, March 2016

"Ketiesha and Frank sold our family home in Three Kings. They conducted themselves professionally at all times and were very friendly, honest and made us feel comfortable. Through a most challenging and stressful time they provided very sound advice and helped ease our concerns. We are very grateful for their efforts to sell our house. We highly recommend Ketiesha and Frank if you are thinking of selling your home."Louise and Bill, December 2015
What a team - Ketiesha Elliot and Frank Excell. Together this dynamic duo made selling our house a whole lot easier. Just the right amount of hugs and slaps to keep it real and to achieve a fantastic result for us. Thank you so much.Michelle and Michael, August 2015
Ketiesha's professionalism and knowledge of Mt Eden property market, is exceptional. While selling your home is a stressful time, somehow Ketiesha makes the process all run smoothly. Her positivity and warmth are just what we needed in an agent. When things get tough, Ketiesha digs deeper, she doesn't give up. She is honest and approachable and we would recommend her most wholeheartedly.Elizabeth and Aaron Molony-Clark, August 2015
Ketiesha is a fantastic person to work with: she is knowledgeable, professional and has boundless energy that she uses to get the best possible outcome for her clients. I have no hesitation in recommending her as she made the process of selling our flat an enjoyable and rewarding one. What an asset to Barfoot & Thompson - Such a great person to deal with.Keren & Paul Ingram, April 2015
Ketiesha is one in a million. Ours was a challenging brief I'm sure. We were in the "do we renovate, or do we bite the bullet and move to a larger home in the school zones we hankered for our kids?" category. In a burgeoning Auckland property market we still had to be prudent. We loved our home, but we needed space.
Ketiesha sat with us from the get-go and understood our brief, our budget and the demands on our time. She proactively sought out homes that matched our need, guided us, picked up our spirits when we missed out on several properties, and then whammo, proactively found the perfect home for us.
When it came to selling she made what could have been a stressful time, a seamless one. The marketing was sublime, her communication exemplary, her networks of potential buyers extensive, and she always did what she said she'd do. She never once let us down. And when it came to auction day the results exceeded our expectations - and we landed a record price for our street.
An outstanding professional, Ketiesha has commercial nous in spades and a warmth and generosity of spirit that is so rare, yet so valued.
We highly recommend Ketiesha as an agent. She has so much energy - nothing is too hard, and she goes the extra mile. She has excellent market knowledge and gives her all to get the best price that she can. Ketiesha is also easy to get along with and is really fun to work with, which makes the stressful process of selling your house much easier.Ben and Bridget Snelling 2015
Ketiesha Elliott knows the Mt Eden area well and her knowledge of the area and market are exemplary. I trusted her totally with the length and all details of the marketing campaign. She knows her stuff and it pays to listen to the expert. She is very fair with her cost structure and is a lovely person to deal with. I recommend Ketiesha for any property sale you are considering.Donna Streeton 2015
"Working with Ketiesha was a fantastic experience, she always had our best interests at heart, would always go the extra mile and I never had any doubt that she would get the absolute best price for our property."Wendy Allsop 2014
We have worked with Ketiesha when buying property; and again most recently as property vendors. We had such a positive experience in both roles. When choosing to list our home with her she came to our first meeting with a well thought out strategy of how to best sell our house, and we enjoyed her honest and up front approach.
Throughout the process she utilised her excellent communication skills and at auction we achieved a pleasing result.
We would recommend Ketiesha over other agents as you don't get 'the run of the mill service'. She is in herself a special kind of brand, mixing delightful, dynamic and being successful at getting great results in real estate.
Ketiesha is a vibrant and warm person with natural sales ability.
I have recently sold my home at 81 St Leonards Road, Epsom through Ketiesha Elliott. This was so easy. Right from the first meeting where we decided on price range, what campaign we would run, right through to the process of going to Auction. Ketiesha had a positive and professional attitude with regard to the selling points of the house and only focused on them, she believed in what she was selling.
She worked for me as the seller from the beginning through to the Auctioning of the house as if it was her own. This for us was huge.The network of agents that Barfoot & Thompson have was a huge advantage in getting as many people through the house as possible. We achieved the result we wanted through the marketing campaign that Ketiesha put together. We were thrilled with the outcome. We felt like we were in good hands and it made the stressful process of selling a breeze.The help I had from Heath her assistant on the day of the marketing video and photos was fantastic
Thank you so much Ketiesha and Heath.
Selling your much loved house and home after 27 happy years is a daunting terrifying experience. Thankfully I was able to engage the services of Ketiesha Elliott whose professionalism, personality, and experience of many years made the process hassle free and far less daunting than I had initially expected. From the first meeting her confident approach and explanation of the paper work involved, presentation of video, photographs and advertising confirmed that I could not have been in safer hands. Always available, keeping me up to date with progress after the Open Homes and attention at the actual Auction were so reassuring, and because of her efforts a successful outcome was the ultimate result. It was a delight to work with Ketiesha, and her staff, her personality and dedication will, I am sure, continue her success well into the future.Julia Firth 2014
The experience of selling our home was made all the less stressful through Ketiesha's professionalism and keeping us informed of prospective buyer feedback and preparation of all possible outcomes at auction. Everything was done so quickly from the advertising, open homes and auction and we are extremely grateful for this, especially at this time of year! Ketiesha's enthusiasm, energy and patience was always evident from the initial meeting through to post-sale. The whole process was conceived and carried through to a successful completion with flair and consummate professionalism. The normal anxiety associated with selling was reduced considerably with her support. The company could not ask for a better member of their team.Andrea Hellens 2014
This was the only experience of selling our home of 44 years and Ketiesha took us under her wing. She treated us with professionalism, honesty and genuine respect. We had a very special rapport with her that made us feel that no matter what she would sell our home. And she did. Many thanks for the journey and the laughs.Helen & Lou Walters 2014
Ketiesha is a pleasure to deal with, professional, personable and delivers on expectations." I would recommend Ketiesha to anyone and will definitely work with her in the future.Ben Davies
Ketiesha lives and breathes Mt Eden - she understands the heart and soul of the area. She really does provide and uncover valuable insights into the local property market - and this is from someone who has lived in the area for over 20 years!
Ketiesha is a great listener, you instantly feel like a treasured customer. She takes time to really understand your needs. She vigilantly guards your interests and is absolutely committed to getting the best result that the market dictates. She has an enviable tenacity to see the job through - a highly driven and motivated professional.
I initially chose Keteisha for a number of reasons: I knew that she had an extensive and thorough knowledge of the area, the properties in the area and the current market. I knew Keteisha to be a professional yet warm and empathetic person who was passionate about her role. And most importantly I knew that I could trust Keteisha to give me sound, honest advice and to support me through this complex and at times demanding process.
Ketiesha helped me choose an appropriate marketing and sales strategy and gave me valuable advice as to how to get the property ready for sale.
Ketiesha understands that for many people homes are more than brick and mortar and that selling homes can often seem a complex and daunting process. Throughout this process I felt informed, understood and supported. It ended up being far less daunting than I expected and resulted in a great outcome for us.
