After eight years in the real estate industry I am still upbeat and outgoing, reliable and industrious and I feel joyful every day to be in this business. My clients can benefit from my in-depth knowledge of the West Auckland suburbs; Massey, Westgate, West Harbour, Hobsonville and the surrounding areas.
Barfoot & Thompson has great connections between salespeople with a network of 77+ branches and more than 1,500 salespeople. As a company they physically cover the greater Auckland region and Northland, and the Barfoot & Thompson and other associated websites provide international exposure to your property listings 24 hours per day, seven days a week.
I have been living in Auckland since 2004 and I love it with its many beautiful harbours, beaches and a great mix of friendly people. Real estate is all about connections and solving problems for clients and very often my clients become friends after the buying and selling is completed. Speaking both English and Chinese fluently means there are no barriers to communication.
With a Diploma in Landscape Design my career prior to real estate was in boat building and landscape design, the latter in particular having a great connection with real estate. I can provide you with excellent tips on presenting your home to maximise its potential in the market.
When I'm not working I enjoy spending time with my two beautiful sons and fishing, reading, art and watching good movies are some of my favourite pastimes.
I have lots of local knowledge and am experienced in dealing with land and packages schemes, having partnered with building companies to achieve outstanding results.
Call me today.
Just a short note to thank you for all the hard work you put into the sale of my home. This was a big step for me after being in this home for over 23 years and your reassurance and regular updates throughout the process certainly made it easier.
The sudden Covid-19 Lockdown didn’t help the situation, but your long hours of work and diligence in getting all the paperwork done to execute a successful auction was very much appreciated.
The sale of this property may have seemed fairly straight-forward, but there were a lot of underlying personal issues. I really appreciated the attention you afforded me regarding my health and well-being at that time.
Your help in handling what was a very sensitive situation will be something I will be forever grateful for.
Kind regardsJulie B
Kevin was introduced to us by our former property manager. He is very professional, excellent in communicating and well experienced in West Auckland market. Appraisal was done the following day after I contacted him. He was up-front and guided us all through the process from listing to signing of S&P. Finally we sold both of our rented properties above the appraisal value. We would definitely use Kevin to buy or sell again in the near future.Melvin & Charissa
We just had our home sold by Kevin Miao of Barfoot & Thomson. We know that putting up our home for sale can be stressful, Kevin however took away all that stress from us. He is very knowledgeable and efficient and his marketing of our home was really impeccable. I would certainly recommend Kevin to anyone who is thinking of selling their properties and I wish him well and success in his career."Wooi Keat & Chek Wee
Just want to share a lovely email I received yesterday from Maria Urlich. In reading this it was a delight to see how much she appreciated the efforts you put into selling her property.
I personally want to thank and congratulate you both on such service. Our whole industry is about customer service and when you get it right, the best comes out.
Thank you again for exceeding customers' expectations - I can assure you that you are both a delight to have in our company and in particular at the Royal Heights office.
Wishing you much success in the coming months with your selling.
I have recently sold my house through Barfoot & Thompson with Kevin & Frank.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank them both for marking the most stress full thing we have done, into something that was manageable.
They both operated with professionalism, integrity & honesty throughout the sales process & we always felt they were working on our behalf
They worked tirelessly together as a team from their first sales pitch to the last open home we held at which point we had two conditional offers on the house.
Even when the market was turning during the sales process from a sellers' market to a buyers' market; they never lost their nerve.
Our faith in them both meant neither did we & they just worked even harder on our behalf.
They exceeded all our expectations of what a great Real Estate Agent could be & would gladly recommend them to anyone selling their property.
Frank and Kevin are a very knowledgeable and reliable team. I have known these guys for 3 years now and have been consistently impressed with there great customer service and availability at all times.
I have bought and sold a number of properties over these few years and thanks to Frank's and Kevin's in depth knowledge of the Unitary plan, I have done really well accumulating great quality real estate. Their in depth knowledge of the West Auckland suburbs is especially impressive.
As a team I found them to be very professional, always reachable and eager to help even if there is nothing in it for them. I have been in real estate for many years now and since dealing with Frank and Kevin, I wouldn't use any one else.
I have found them to be very honest, sincere and very friendly. Great positive guys that are a pleasure to be around.
Thanks for all your hard work, greatly appreciated.
Kevin and Frank are excellent sales team. We have definitely chose the right people to sell our house. Throughout the whole time they have been professional, friendly, helpful and always available. They have offered advice when needed, kept us up to date with progress, and guided us through the quick and efficient sale of our house. We are very grateful for the extra mile they went. We would definitely recommend them to anyone considering sell and buy a house. All the best for your future businesses.Kazu & Rebecca Iwamoto
We appreciate the big help from Kevin and Frank sales team to sell our home at the ideal price around 4 weeks. At first, we talked with a couple of agents from the different companies, Kevin and Frank give us more professional impression on local knowledge and real estate experience than others, they designed the marketing strategy for us and explain every detail which is useful for us to make decision. Also selling calender is very impressive to let us know what they will do on our property to make every detail transparently.
We are so happy that we could have these two professional agents to help us sell our house without any hassle and puzzle. We will definitely go with you guys in buying or selling in the future, and also will refer you guys to our friends.
When my husband and I came to NZ, we were so lucky to have Frank and Kevin help us purchase a house. Through their experience they gave us lots of useful tips and advice on purchasing to make the process easy and smooth. After my circumstances changed, we decided to up size our house and Frank and Kevin helped us market and sell our current property. The whole process was professional from start to finish. They analyze the market and advise us on every move. The result was amazing; the price we achieved was well over my expectation. Frank and Kevin are definitely the best choice for buying and selling.Junqi Cai
"After deciding that it was time to move on from our house we consulted Kevin and Frank of Barfoot & Thompson. From that meeting on the process was smooth and simple. We listened to their advice on the best way to market, and prepare for the sale of the house. It finished up a great result for us and would like to thank them for their great effort and most of all keeping us informed throughout the process. We would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone buying or selling their property."Andre and Minako den Boer
"Frank and Kevin approached me while my house was under construction. They helped offer professional ideas and solutions for my property. I was impressed with their efforts and this was the reason I listed my house with them. They went above and beyond, often extending open home hours to accomodate buyers. I followed their marketing advice and they achieved an amazing price for my property. I was very pleased. The whole process was smooth and hassle-free. Their communication was efficeint and always up to date. They will definitely be my first choice in future."Peter Zhou
"Hi Frank & Kevin,
Thank you for the great, effecient service you have provided me and my husband in the process of selling our property. You were very helpful and approachable at all times for any questions and queries. You were able to not just get us the price we were after but also your service made things a lot smoother. I wish you both well for the future."
"We have had the pleasure to work with Frank and Kevin, where they tirelessly took us around many different houses in the hope to find "the one". Daily they scanned the market and gave us updates and great advice on each house, ensuring that we had all the information we needed. They always had our best interest at heart and are very honest and trustworthy and deliver everything they promise. We have worked with Frank before and would only work with him and Kevin again when it came to our new house and unsurprisingly we have had service far beyond expectations! Thank you Frank and Kevin for everything. We will certainly be spreading the word of your services and will highly recommend you. All the best."Loretta & Kurtis
