Recently my wife and I chose Gail and Kevin to market out house for us. What a wise decision this turned out to be. Right from the outset we were impressed with their honesty, friendliness and integrity. From the time our house went on the market to sale time it was seven days. The price they achieved for us was far beyond our wildest expectations. We believe this was due to Gail and Kevin’s expertise in their marketing plan, their wide range of contacts and presenting our house properly to the prospective buyers. We cannot recommend them highly enough to people wanting to sell their house.Mike & Brenda Hempleman - Pasteur Place, New Windsor
Just wanted to say a really big big thank you from Dave and I for the wonderful service we received from you guys. Selling your home can be a traumatic event however you made it so easy for us to feel relaxed during the whole process. Your years of experience shone through when dealing with us. We think the most important thing was the trust we had in both of you. We ended up with more than we had expected and we are truly grateful. Thank you also for the lovely gift box. Can't wait to dig into it and Gail, thank you for taking the time to share some champers with our family yesterday. We realise how busy you are so really appreciated it. (Under different circumstances we could have made a night of it!) You hear all sorts of grumbles about real estate salespeople, but if they dealt with either of you I'm sure you would never hear a bad comment made. Big cheers and stay safe and again big thanks from the ever grateful Nicolsons xxNicolsons - Jasmine Place, Blockhouse Bay
Gail and Kevin make a wonderful team. With their local knowledge, expertise and guidance we were able to sell our house for a price that exceeded our expectations. Their professionalism and attention to detail is second-to-none. Mix this in with their great sense of humour and personable touch, they made the process simple and enjoyable for ourselves as first-time vendors in New Zealand. Choose them to sell your house and you won't be disappointed. They make an excellent team and we heartily recommend them for those selling in Blockhouse Bay and surrounding suburbs.Sunit & Deepa
We highly recommend Kevin and Gail team.
First contact: All it took was a text message and Kevin (as always), was very quick to respond and we set out a plan over a call. We had a busy schedule with our newborn. Thankfully Kevin was extremely accommodating and understanding.
Home Appraisal: Kevin and Gail came and swiftly did a home appraisal on the agreed date, sharp on the clock. They suggested few tweaks in and around the house that would help us to improve the home value further. We took their advice.
Networks: We did landscaping and home staging. Everything was arranged and executed by Kevin and Gail, as we couldn't devote enough time to find the right tradespeople. The quotes given were very competitive and reasonable. Kevin managed everything and promptly sent us updates and picture before and after completed work.
Communication: Kevin and Gail have been extremely professional and approachable.
What we immediately noticed was that the team was very detailed, thorough and highly organized. They were very upfront and transparent on everything and if they said they would do something, it was done without fail. They regularly sent us updates, advised next steps and reports after open homes. We never had to ask for anything or follow up!
Open Homes: Once the house keys were handed over, Kevin and Gail just took it from there and went on auto-pilot. Anytime we had questions, all it took was a text message and they would respond quickly. After every open-home, we would get detailed report on that week.
Sale: Because of their great marketing, networks and work done during open-homes, we got a pre-auction offer and it resulted in a smooth sale.
Keep up the good work K&G team. All the best for your other sales!Anil Surendran
Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value
TLDR: Kevin is the best property salesperson in the Blockhouse Bay/Avondale area.
I cannot speak more highly of Kevin and his team for their professionalism and knowledge in real estate. He has delivered an outstanding result for us which is literally life changing. There are lot's of useless property salespeople out there telling you how good they are but they can't even do the basic job of turning up at their open homes on time.
Kevin is on the other side of that spectrum. He is punctual, knowledgeable and most of all, he can execute!
I basically did nothing during the marketing campaign and he project managed the whole thing for us, informed us every step of the way and turned our property into an amazing home that attracted dozens and dozens of visitors and lot's of bidders.
It has been a hassle-free selling process for us. I would highly recommend Kevin to anyone who looks to sell their property.Jun Chen & Yiwen Wang
We recently contracted Gail Beaton and Kevin He of Barfoot & Thompson Blockhouse Bay, to sell our 100 year old family home. Gail and Kevin were a fount of knowledge and because we had a very short window of advertising, they were just amazing at getting things underway. Once we went live, we had Pre-auction offer within 24 hours. The auction was brought forward and we sold at an amazing price. We could not rate Gail and Kevin highly enough for all the work they put in before, after and during settlement, when we had a few issues with the purchasers. Thank you Gail and Kevin – you are amazing!George Ward
We had a great experience with Barfoot & Thompson. Before selling our property, we went to quite a few open homes and we met Kevin He. Although we were a young couple and we were visiting open homes which were probably out of our budget, Kevin welcomed us in and treated us with respect. He wasn't overly pushy but presented the properties well in a nice friendly manner. We knew that when it came to selling our house we would want an salesperson like him to represent us. Kevin came on board with us and made the entire process very simple and clear. After listing our property with him, he provided all the information and options to us in terms of selling strategy and marketing and allowed us to make the decisions ourselves on what suited our family situation. He pointed out many things around our property which we could do leading up to the open home to help increase the value and get a good result. In the end we got a great result at the auction and his work was instrumental to achieving that result. We highly recommend Barfoot & Thompson and Kevin He and will definitely use their services again in the future.Bhavesh & Rachna Govind - Arran St, Avondale
Hi Gail and Kevin.
I just wanted to touch base to say thank you for all the work you and Kevin put in to selling our place. The result was better than we had hoped and we appreciate that this wouldn’t have been possible without your tireless efforts. You made the whole process stress-free and it has been a pleasure having you as our salespeople!
"When we decided to sell our home we considered several companies and several salespeople. After speaking with Kevin and Gail we were immediately impressed with their enthusiasm and professionalism. We are so glad that we decided to go with them. Professionalism was evident all the way through the process, especially in the marketing materials, photos and internet presence. We had very good numbers through the open homes as well as Barfoot & Thompson salespeople from all over Auckland, bringing people through during the weeks leading up to the auction. All through the selling process Gail and Kevin kept us up-to-date and reassured us that things were going well. On the day of the auction we could not believe the number of people in attendance and the number of people bidding. The result was way beyond our expectations. Amazingly so! We will recommend Kevin and Gail to any of our friends who may be thinking of selling."
Kind regardsDavid and Maud
Excellent service great feedback and advice along the way. Barfoot & Thompson made our lives easy. I was going to do it myself was what I was thinking. There was no way we could of got these results in three weeks! Fully explained every step of the process, provided professional feedback on time and quality reports. At auction they were there every step of the way with us too. Highly recommended!Karen Redway
Kevin and Gail from Barfoot & Thompson, Blockhouse Bay worked on a strategy that saw our house sell within 24 hours of going on the market, presenting us with a multiple offer situation and an unconditional buyer. They were always in communication with us giving excellent advice on how to present our property and answering questions we had promptly. They were a highly professional team working well together to achieve almost astonishing results. I would recommend them to anyone thinking of selling their house in the area.Scott & Liz Brown
Gail Beaton and Kevin He carried out an excellent marketing campaign on my property. The whole auction process felt seamless with a successful outcome for all concerned. I was kept informed with feedback after open homes and my tenant felt at ease with Gail and Kevin. I highly recommend them if you are thinking of selling.Heather Barnes
Thank you for your guidance advice while selling our house. We are very pleased with the outcome.
Best Wishes from
Thank you so much for your support and guidance during the campaign. We appreciate everything you did to get the fantastic result that you did. We would all have no hesitation in recommending you both to others and will be keeping an eye out for your names on the wall of honour!!!Nicky & Dale
Dear Chris Dever-Young,
My wife and I would like to thank you for your support at the auction of our property at Shortland St, on October 2nd. It was most appreciated. Moreover, we would like to bring to your attention our thoughts on the agents concerned, Kevin He and Gail Beaton.
Very occasionally in life you will experience a service way beyond all your expectations An exceptional service that exceeded every requirements with ease yet managed to keep stress levels low, even in the case of selling a long occupied home. A service where a dreaded transition became a memorable experience and our agents felt more like friends with a great knowledge of real estate.
We were in that fortunate position when Kevin He and Gail Beaton agreed to market our home of 25 years. I can't think of a single superlative that would cover their part in this. I can easily think of many superlatives that they deserve. It does not take too long to realise that you are with a multiple award winning team and by the time the process is concluded you can see that even more awards will come their way.
If you are fortunate enough to have this team market your property, Fred Dagg and the song "You don't know how lucky you are" comes to mind.
Kevin and Gail are "treasures" to Barfoots. They should be National treasures in the real estate industry!
Good afternoon Kevin and Gail,
Now that the dust has settled Gail and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you both for the very professional job you did on the marketing and selling of our house.
From the first meeting we had with you, you instilled confidence in us to select you for our job against the competition.
The marketing plan you created for us was excellent and your execution of the plan to achieve a great result was superb.
Well done Kevin and Gail you are both true professionals in the real estate business and we would have no hesitation in recommending you both to anyone wanting a top job done on the sale of a house.
Dear Kevin and Gail
We wanted to send you a very big thank you for helping us sell our very beloved first home.
As newbies to selling a house we appreciated your honest and helpful advise to ensure we got the very best sale. You both made us feel at ease with the suggestions as we really had to step outside our comfort zone, and it has paid off.
Thank you for providing great advice as we navigated our way through the pre-auction process and your commitment to getting more buyers to the auction in such a short time was much appreciated.
I'm so glad we attended the auction as it allowed us to be involved right until the last step.
We are so pleased to know a new family will be moving in and starting their family life. Our boys have carved up the back yard with play and no doubt their kids will too. (You can tell them the neighbors are very understanding and will throw any stray balls back over the fence)
Thank you again so very much. We have already recommended you to our friends and will always continue too.
Professional and friendly staff, who gave me all options available and sound advice. Dealing with Kevin He and Gail Beaton (Blockhouse Bay) was a pleasure. Selling my house after 40yrs, I had no idea what to expect. Kevin and Gail walked me through the process and offered all the options available. Together with their market knowledge and excellent advice a very quick sale was achieved. I would have no hesitation in recommending Kevin and Gail, and Barfoot and Thompson to anybody interested in buying or selling their home.Dave Robinson
I'd like to provide you with some feedback regarding our recent experience dealing with one of your residential salesperson Kevin He. It truly has been a pleasure dealing with Kevin for both the sale of our existing house and purchase of our dream home. We've been in the property market for a good amount of time now and I can say that Kevin's customer service and knowledge of the property industry & market trends has been so valuable. Dealing with him has truly set a high standard as to what a great real estate agent should be. We got so lucky that we found someone at such a high calibre as Kevin who is patient and so knowledgeable. You've got a great star in your team and I hope he'll be recognised for his exceptional service.
A very big thank you for your amazing work in selling our house. Kevin's proven track record in providing superior customer service by emotionally connecting and spending time with his clients to discuss their needs stood out.
His extensive insight of the industry coupled with excellent negotiating, marketing and planning skills was evident from the word go. Kevin gave us an appraisal that was realistic, reflecting the current market situation.
A plan was devised to spruce the property to achieve best results. The marketing material especially the new brochure was money well spent. During the marketing campaign, Kevin apart from meeting us weekly and providing detailed feedback was in regular touch over the phone updating us with client's comments. It was a pleasure working with him and his advice on deciding about the pre-auction offer was invaluable.The result was outstanding and exceeded our expectation. I would not hesitate to recommend Kevin & the entire team at Barfoot & Thompson to any prospective seller or buyer.
Wishing team Kevin all the very best always.
We have recently sold our home at Himalaya Crescent in Lynfield with Gail Beaton & Kevin He.
I wanted to drop a line to say how professional we found both of them, from day one.
Their communication and commitment to the vendor can't be faulted and something we appreciated.
They are professional in every aspect/detail including how the balloons were placed on our fence for auction day.
The buyer feedback for our home in terms of price was around the 1.5 million mark.
We thought that was a bit low, but we know its the market that sets the price in an auction so we decided to set our reserve at that mark.
It would have been very easy for Gail and Kevin to sell our property just over that price point, but in the last 2 days leading up to auction they worked extremely hard to-get as many buyers as possible to the auction to create good competition.
Auction day came and there was strong bidding from four bidders. The result was outstanding and exceeded our expectation.
These guys are an asset to your team and the Blockhouse Bay area and I would happily refer their services to anyone looking at buying or selling.
A very big and heartfelt thank you to you both for your amazing work in selling our house! What an awesome result we had in the end - it certainly made us feel like all the hard work we put into getting the house all ship-shape was all worth while.
Many thanks for the late evening meetings and working around our busy little family. And also for the great and prompt communications we had with you - it has all been very much appreciated.
Special thanks for the lovely gifts for the children too - what a lovely, thoughtful thing to do.
We would certainly have no hesitation in recommending you both to anyone we know who is selling property in the area in the future.
We decided to sell our home of 28 years and wanted to list it with an Agency that gave full exposure to the market - nationally and internationally.
As we had met Gail previously with regard to property in the area and had felt very comfortable with her manner, we asked her to appraise our home. Gail and Kevin gave us an appraisal that was a realistic and not an inflated figure. Consequently we signed a Real Estate Agreement listing our proeprty with Gail and Kevin.
A marketing plan and calendar were provided with full details of the Sale Process. We were very impressed with the detail provided , the coverage and the cost. The photography and on-site walk-through video were superb and did full justice to our home. During the marketing, Gail and Kevin met with us weekly and provided us with detailed feedback. It took the form of verbal, Internet responses, Marketing Analysis, Real Estate Advertising Material (National and International).
We appreciated Gail and Kevin's down to earth support and expertise. Gail and Kevin guided us through the Auction process. Prior to the Auction, Gail spent several evenings speaking with us and gave us the assurance we needed. The consequence of Gail and Kevin's skill was a very successful Auction that more than met with our expectations.
Danny and I think and speak highly of both Gail and Kevin. Together they bring a different range of experience that complements a marketing programme. We recommend Gail Beaton and Kevin He to any prospective vendor.
We found the service we received from Kevin He and Gail Beaton to be of an exceptional standard. They kept us well informed throughout the process, which we really appreciated. Any questions we had we answered promptly. They also helped keep our minds at ease during what can be a very stressful process. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Kevin and Gail to anyone we know considering selling their property. We had excellent service from Kevin and Gail.Mr and Mrs Salter
A thorough professional - neat, tidy, approachable, realistic, enthusiastic, keen to please, well mannered, bright personality, knowledgeable, knows the market, a great guy.
"SIMPLY THE BEST "
A BIG THANK YOU KEVIN FROM BOTH OF US.
We were happy to find Kevin He to be our agent, he was very professional throughout the process and provided us with plenty of insightful and useful feedback.Monica Fan
Kevin is one of the nice guys out there. Not taking away that he is also an astute businessman. Wish him well for the future.Gary Seath
Kevin helped us sell our first home, and he changed our mind about real estate agents! He was exceptionally professional, friendly and helpful. From the moment we first met him he made the entire process simple and easy. He achieved a price that we never would have believed possible. He never failed to do everything when and how he said he would. We quite simply could not believe we managed to get such a great real estate agent! Thanks Kevin !!!!!Daniel & Leah McCurdy
Kevin provided excellent customer service for our family and we were thoroughly thrilled with the auction results. He was friendly, professional and knowledgable about the local market. We would highly recommend Kevin and his wife Sunny to anyone wanting to sell their property.Alexander & Keri Milich
Kevin provided exceptional service throughout the entire process, ultimately achieving an excellent sales result! Kevin was highly professional at all times and worked extremely hard on my behalf. I would not hesitate to recommend Kevin to any prospective seller or buyer. Thanks again and much appreciated.Brendan Turner

By the end of the process he felt more like a friend than our agent.
"We recently did business with Kevin He. The reason for doing the business with him was when we were looking for the property in few years back, we met him and impressed with his professionalism, approachability and presentation. Hence when we decided to sell the property without approaching anyone else straight we approached Kevin. Kevin did fantastic job preparing & bringing marketing material and presentation on our first meeting. He maintained the same professionalism throughout the sell process. We are definitely happy with his service and recommend others to do business with him."Shashank & Dipali Kaduskar
"With our past experience with other real-estate agents, we had the impression that real estate agents have only one goal which is selling the property and earning the commission. However, we were impressed by Kevin's professional knowledge and approachable personality. Form the get go Kevin provides us professional advice on how to organise furniture and garden in order to achieve the best result of marketing the property. Throughout the marketing process, Kevin provided us regular feedbacks and possible plan for the next step. In addition, instead of pushing us to lower our reserve price, (Which is quite common practice in the industry according to our past experience) Kevin showed us relevant market information and the feedback from potential buyers. Hence, we are happy that all decisions we made were well informed. In terms of the outcome of selling our property, we really happy with the auction outcome and that cannot be achieved without Kevin's hard work and the supports from other Barfoot & Thompson staff that were did not have a chance to meet. Now we are in the process of settlement, I am sure Kevin will continue to provide us assistant to ensure a smooth transaction. Overall, Kevin sold our property in 7 days with a price that above our expectation, we have to say that was an outstanding result. Please pass on our personal appreciation to Kevin and your staff."Anson Lin
"Kevin managed the sales process very well. He was very diligent with time management and with regards to communicating market feedback as we went through the listing period. His preparation for the Auction processes was very well managed and we got the outcome we wished for. All the best to him for the future."Milind
"We write to acknowledge the great service provided to us by Kevin He of Barfoot & Thompson Blockhouse Bay branch. We had two recent experiences of working with Kevin - purchase of a vacant land at 48a Stewart Road, Mt Albert and sale of our property at 6a Knight Avenue, Mt Albert.
Kevin's friendly and very professional service resulted in a smooth process in relation to both the purchase and sale. He looked after our interest with sincerity and integrity, and supported us with sound advice .during the various decision-making stages. We were never pressured to accept any offer pertaining to the sale of our house. The open home days and timings were based on prior consultation with us, and our convenience was always checked before bringing any potential buyers to view the house. Regular up dates on open homes (via meetings or by phone calls) gave us clear picture of the situation.
We greatly value Kevin's hard work to get our house sold. Prior to that, he also helped us purchase the Stewart Road land at a reasonable price. Following the sale of our house, Kevin even went beyond his salesman's service by providing us with information about some nearby rental properties in an effort to help us find a temporary accommodation until our new house is built.
At all times Kevin demonstrated a very professional approach, and his punctuality was unquestionable. The various documents that he prepared in relation to the sale of our property also clearly reflect his professionalism.
There is no doubt that we would be approaching Kevin again if we are in the position of selling or buying a property at any time in the future. Also, we will have no hesitation in recommending him to our friends and families.
In conclusion, we would also like to acknowledge the good support provided by Kevin's wife, Sunny Sun."
"Dave and I would like to say thank-you and how much we appreciate the effort you put in while marketing our property. Your friendly and professional manner, and the speed in which our property sold. We would not hesitate to recommend your services to anyone thinking of selling."Dave and Sue Peterson
"I wish to thank the staff of Barfoot & Thompson Blockhouse Bay for the fantastic service they provided recently in selling my property. The listing agent Kevin He was professional throughout the entire process and offered support, kept open communication and provided prompt feedback after each w/e of open homes. He was ably supported by his colleagues who took keen interest in helping the property sold even at this period of gloom and doom."Ram Prasad
"I had initially decided to list my property for sale with another agent from Barfoots, that was until I met Kevin He at an open home that I went to view. His very friendly, non-intrusive manner appealed greatly andI trusted my instincts and listed my property with him.
I was truly impressed. Kevin was always very punctual, honest, helpful and contactable whenever I needed him. I only ever had to ask for something once, he always got back to me with an answer.
His efficiency was SO outstanding that I felt I always had to let him know, how much I appreciated this. He made the process of selling my property alot less hectic than I had anticipated, along with a great sense of humour!!!
Kevin also listened to what I wanted and found the place I now call my dream home. Kevin He is a great asset to Barfoot & Thompson, people with these qualities are very rare these days."
