Lani successfully combines strength, capability and confidence with a friendly approachable nature, easily creating connections of trust, transparency and warmth with both buyers and sellers. Couple this with her instinctive ability to understand people and what they’re really seeking, and you have a positive real estate experience in waiting.
Lani also brings a well-honed business acumen to the table, acquired from successfully running her own beauty and wellness clinics for 20 years. She has also completed many personal real estate purchases over the years, making improvements to properties for capital gain. Having a great eye for design and aesthetics gives her the ability to ensure her clients’ properties are presented with maximum buyer appeal.
Lifestyle properties and village life in rural West Auckland are Lani’s passions, along with her horses. She loves the west and is regularly sighted in Woodhill Forest with her best friend Zephyr! Another great passion for Lani is Speedway. Having being involved with it her whole life, she has a fantastic network at Western Springs Speedway with her racing family.
Lani feels successfully working with horses as well as people for so many years has gifted her the ability to intuitively read energy which has helped her immensely across every stage of her career. Real estate is no exception! While Lani loves selling all through the north west area, having had life style properties in the area for over 10 years, she is also familiar in the semi-rural areas she specialises in including Kumeu, Coatesville, Taupaki, Riverhead, Waimauku, Woodhill and Muriwai.

'Lani fulfilled our dream
We started looking for our new home early in the new year, with a very specific brief and we are delighted to say, Lani found just what we were looking for. Lani is very efficient with communication and went the extra mile to fulfil our wishes. Thank you to Lani and your team, our new home is stunning, we love it.'Neil & Lee-Anne Hunnibell - Purchaser
A true professional
Lani was amazing to work with throughout the duration of selling our family home. Lani is professional, organised, enthusiastic and listens to your needs and concerns. Her approach was gentle and detailed and we felt at ease having Lani as our salesperson. It was a pleasure to work with a true professional.Tania & Dave Crowther - Vendor
Would highly recommend Lani
Lani was very friendly and personable to deal with. We felt very confident in Lani’s advice and knowledge in regards to the sale of our property. This is the second time we have used Lani and are very happy with both results. Thanks Lani :)Averil & Chris Good - Vendor
Absolutely wonderful to work with!
Lani and Nicole Calis were extremely helpful, open, transparent, and reliable throughout the whole process. We had moved out of the house and the area during the sale, and they went above and beyond to help us with anything we needed. After having a couple of bad experiences with selling houses in the past, they made us feel very comfortable and the whole process was stress-free.Cheryl & Steve Eyles - Vendor
Lani successfully sold our house by the tender process under the more challenging rules of Covid Level 3. We can unreservedly recommend Lani. Very professional, efficient and a pleasure to deal with!David & Trudy Morrison - Vendor
Lani is an awesome salesperson. Highly recommended!
Lani made everything easy during what is a stressful time. She knew the perfect way to present our house for sale and worked closely with the photographer and videographer to make sure the result was what she wanted. We felt she was always working for us as the vendors in getting the best possible price. She gave good advice regarding the auction, and we were very happy with the result - which exceeded expectations. Lani is easy to communicate with and a pleasure to deal with.Michael & Toni Baxter - Vendor
Blue Belle was in the Best Hands!!!!
We had never sold a home before so really had to trust our salesperson and feel confident in the guidance and advice given. With Lani, we were completely catered for in these areas. We loved her positive energy and the way she always listened to us, and helped us navigate through this new experience. We felt like she marketed the home so well and were thrilled with how the house looked online with a personalised video by Lani. She was always professional and made us feel at ease. I would not want to have done this process with anyone else! She is truly the best!Chris & Caroline MacDonald - Vendor
Another Success Story
This is the second property my husband and I have sold recently. Closely following the amazing result of the first sale came the sale of our home. Lani continued in her personable professional and enthusiastic way to get a brilliant result for us. Managing the tender process and Covid restrictions were made easy. We are experienced in real estate having owned many real estate offices. Both being highly qualified in this field, it is often hard to trust real estate salespeople, especially those new to the industry. We have since recommended Lani to others and will use her for our third sale.Frith & Harvard Daniels - Vendor
Highly Professional and Efficient
We met Lani as the salesperson of the property we were planning to buy and after dealing with her, immediately felt that she would be the perfect salesperson to work with on our project. Realising that the market was slowing down due to Christmas, Lani did her best to get us sold within three weeks of the listing, with good results. We won't hesitate to recommend Lani.Hassan Naqvi - Vendor
Lani was an excellent, extremely hardworking and helpful salesperson and was critical in the sale of the property. Her genuine and friendly demeanour was a pleasure to work with. She was very professional and had a great eye for detail. Lani, always willing to go the extra mile, presented a fantastic marketing plan and assisted in contractor work which was completed on the property. I have no doubt her personable approach would have been positively received by potential buyers and highly recommend her for anyone looking to sell their property in the area.Casey Scott - Vendor
We recently listed our property with Lani to market and sell our house. She was so amazing to deal with. What stood out the most was her absolute passion in providing us with the most hassle-free experience. Her honesty and professionalism is second-to-none. Lani was informative with us at every step of our marketing campaign.
While she was working hard to get the most she could for us, she constantly kept us updated. When Lani gave us her appraisal it came in lower than other salespeople, but she was bang on. She really knows and understands the market in the real estate industry.
We are so so happy we chose Lani Allard to sell our property. She went totally above-and-beyond in every possible way .
We thank Lani so much for all the effort she went to, and we praise her and rate her “Simply the Best” We highly recommend Lani without hesitation.10 star rated.Keith & Carolyn Simpson - Vendor
Calm, confident with style
Lani was recommended to us and after meeting her, it was clear why. From the moment we met Lani, she made us feel confident that we could sell our home. Her knowledge of our particular type of property was great. Always there to guide us and answer questions, she made the process seamless. Following her advice ensured our house was presented at its best and achieved a great result.Neil & Jo Lawton - Vendor
This Salesperson ... Outstanding!
Lani made the sale of our house an absolute breeze. She helped us from setup all the way through to sold. She actually cares about getting the results that you would hope for, and is always very open and honest about the market and where it is going.
I've dealt with many salespeople and it's safe to say that she is a salesperson you can trust!Kurt Simpson - Vendor
Lani was amazing to work with.
I sold and purchased with Lani. She was amazing to work with. I had not sold and purchased in over 10 years, so the whole world of real estate was quite different. She was so knowledgeable about the market, the processes and so reassuring. She work soooo hard on my sale, over Christmas and New Year, through January. We had a couple of purchases that fell through, she kept me upbeat, and she got me the price I wanted. She had such a lovely personal approach as well, and I felt really "got me'!! Thank you Lani so much, will definitely recommend you to others. (Though I won’t be moving again for some time, you got me my perfect home!)Anna Palmer - Vendor
One happy customer. Thank you Lani
Lani has a real gift when it comes to marrying the right house with the right people. Her knowledge of the market and love for the area that she works and lives in, is spot on. We found Lani totally professional, extremely driven and it was evident she’s prepared to go the extra mile. Lani was confident she would exceed our expectations regarding the sale of our home. We are justified in saying that we were extremely happy with the result she achieved in record time.Robert & Sue McBride - Vendor
Sale of our property Keegan Drive Massey. Absolutely amazing to deal with.
Wow, Lani is absolutely amazing. She went way over and above for us. We honestly think she got us an extra 100k. Her marketing was second-to-none. She was built to sell property. Such a wonderful experience. Thank you so so much Lani...
5 Stars A dynamic yet relaxed experience.
Where to start...If you are after swift and amazing results then stop looking...Lani must be your choice. Lani is calm and always reassuring and took the time to talk us through the tender process that we chose. It was a quick and realistic process ensuring that we achieved our expectations. I am sure Lani's entire focus was solely on the sale of our home. Glenn and I cannot recommend Lani enough for the effort to achieve our great success story...thinking of finding a salesperson CHOOSE LANI ALLARD Barfoot & Thompson.
5 Stars Nothing to lose
Even though I have warned people not to list your property with a friend, I went against my own advice. My husband and I are extremely knowledgeable about real estate having sold properties ourselves and owned our own real estate agency with many offices. We were not disappointed with Lani's commitment to the sales process. She very quickly negotiated an excellent offer, however what impressed us was that she kept showing the property and getting back up agreements until one stuck. It is easy for an salesperson to be lazy in this heated market, once they have a good property to sell as they almost sell themselves. However, to get the best offer in a professional and stress-free manner where you can totally trust the salesperson is rare. We have many other properties that we will be selling and if Lani can handle us we certainly would like her to work with us again and again. Our friendship is secure in the knowledge that Lani will do her best and not give up until she gets a result we are happy with.
Selling with Lani
Lani has done a great job in marketing our property in 2021. I think we picked the correct marketing strategy for the situation in Auckland, and she did a great job on following that strategy through. For us, other than keeping the house in presentable condition and liaising with Lani, it felt like we were hands-off the selling process. No doubt Lani has put in a significant number of hours with potential buyers. But for us that has been out of view and with two young kids and a job, we wouldn’t have had the capacity to do any of that. Lani came around with champagne and flowers to congratulate us after the auction, but I feel she deserved the thanks and a decent break. She looked more exhausted than us!Matthew Ferris & Emily Oliver - Vendor
Lani made the selling of our property a trouble free experience for us .
Lani has vast knowledge of property in our area, from previous sales to the opportunities this rapidly expanding West Auckland area offers. Her professional approach in dealing with us from great house presentation ideas to regular and clear communication, I would highly recommend any potential property sellers to give Lani a call .Greg & Anne Stainton - Vendor
We have had the pleasure of dealing with Lani while selling our property with Barfoot & Thompson. While not the listing salesperson, Lani went the extra mile for both us as sellers and for the purchasers of our property, showing how amazing the Barfoot & Thompson system really is, with everyone working as a team for a great outcome. Lani was absolutely wonderful to deal with, a genuine and professional salesperson who we couldn’t recommend more highly.Nicole Austin - Vendor
Gold Service with a smile!
Lani was superb in selling our property. Right from the initial appraisal, Lani provided prompt and clear communication. Her advice certainly ensured our property was presented in the most professional way possible and we are incredibly happy with the result!. We would absolutely recommend Lani to anyone wanting to sell their property!Hayden & Lisa Pirie - Vendor
Efficient and Lots of Fun
Lani was delightful to deal with. From the outset, she aimed to achieve more than our expectations and did so. Could not fault her on any level of professionalism.Kip & Lyn Kempthorne - Vendor
Lani took the stress out of the selling process.
We found Lani helpful and enthusiastic right from the start. She dealt with all involved in a professional manner, being up front with information and explaining the auction process well. Our situation had it’s challenges and Lani handled that respectfully. We were very pleased with the outcome, which exceeded everyone’s expectations! We would recommend Lani as an salesperson for great resultsSandra Heney (Vendor)
How to make the Process Easy, Seamless, and Stress-free
From the beginning, Lani was able to answer our questions, guide us through the process, and made the whole process of selling our house one of the easiest things we have ever done. When we had questions she was able to answer them quickly and efficiently, she gave us ideas on how to stage our house and how to advertise and ultimately get a price far exceeding our expectations. I'd use Lani to sell my house again and would recommend her to anyone.Rachael & Stuart Cooper (Vendor)
We found Lani to be very professional and sincere. She has great people (communication) skills and clearly her clients best interests are a priority. Her attention to detail and thoroughness was outstanding. Lani is very well presented, polite and has personality plus! Additionally, she was very, very helpful to assist us in purchasing a new property - something we had no experience in and appreciated.Russell & Faye Allingham (Vendor)
Exceptional... The best of the best! ⭐️
Lani made selling our house an effortless, easy and enjoyable experience. She is extremely knowledgeable, professional, genuine and she is super pleasurable to deal with. Nothing is too much for her to do and she always goes the extra mile without even being asked.
Lani’s attention to detail is impeccable and her people skills are admirable. We have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know her on a professional level and our entire family including my there and six year old quickly became fond of her.
Her communication skills and mannerisms with us and potential buyers were superb and we were kept up to date with any updates in a prompt manner. She was always a step ahead and 100% capable of dealing with whatever came her way.
We would recommend using Lani as your estate salesperson over and over again... That is how good she is! She is a definite asset to have in selling your house and she always has your best interests at heart which is rare to find.
We as a family loved having Lani and Nicole as a part of our team and we are extremely happy with the outcome in the selling of our house and we are so happy to have had her involved in creating beautiful memories for our family as we move onto our future plans.
Thank you Lani... you are amazing and we are so grateful for all you have done and achieved on our behalf 😃Alastair & Lindy Tate (Vendor)
