Meeting people from all walks of life, finding innovative solutions for their challenges and negotiating for the best outcome, is what attracted me to real estate.
I have been living on the North Shore since 2000 and been working with Barfoot & Thompson for 17 years. The lifestyle here is unique with many beaches a short drive away and the inner harbour on our doorstep.
Prior to real estate, I owned a successful business. My personal mantra of 'commitment, service, and dedication' served me very well throughout my business life. When presenting your property, I use all the latest marketing and social media platforms. When it comes to the crunch, I'm a very experienced negotiator.
Enjoying the outdoors, fishing and mountain biking are among my favourite pastimes. I am a major sponsor of the North Shore Men's Shed.
When you call I'll put all my experience to work for you!
I highly recommend Lance Clarke. He has sold our past three properties in the North Shore/Rodney districts of Auckland. The last property he sold in July 2021 had a variety of factors that made it challenging, i.e. we reside overseas, fixed term tenants with six month remaining, limited viewings, etc, but Lance took it in his stride, had a strategy and if he hit a roadblock he pivoted quickly and always kept us informed throughout the process.
Lance is calm, engaging and straight-up, he thinks outside the square and is a great communicator. He builds strong relationships quickly which allows him to negotiate and work well with all parties involved for the best possible outcome...great job Lance!
If you want a fantastic real estate salesperson, then Lance will provide a high level of service coupled with his experience and knowledge. It's likely you will use him again and again like we did. All the very best Lance.Alisha & John Lawler
"Thanks Lance. We are thrilled with the result. You were amazing throughout the process. Made the whole thing super easy! Will definitely recommend you to anyone buying or selling. ThanksHelen
Lance recently sold a rental property I owned in Beach Haven. He was always professional in his dealings with me and at the same time very approachable and friendly that I felt very comfortable with his handling of the sale and felt free to approach him with any questions I had. At all times he kept me informed of what interest there was in the property. His level of service far exceeded my expectations and I cannot speak highly enough of using his services. We had an excellent outcome and full credit and thanks to him.Rosane
"Selling a home is said to be one of the most stressful times in ones life but you made it an easy process...coming from a service industry background & selling/buying a few properties my experience with real estate agents hasn't always been one of praise and in most cases been disappointing. However from the moment you pitched for the chance to sell our home to the time that the hammer fell you were at all times professional & respectful; gave sound & knowledgeable advice on how to market our property; provided timely & good/structured feedback on how the campaign was progressing; had solid strategy's on how to get the best price which was truly evident in the sale price we achieved of which I believe was the record for Northcote/Northcote Point area for our type of property. I would strongly recommend you to any of our family members or friends and particularly to anyone in the nearby area/streets thinking of selling their home. You definitely provided an exceptional service from start to finish and we have nothing but praise for you. I wish you all the best for the future and again thanks for doing a great job!"John & Alisha Lawler
"When a vendor lives overseas I'm sure most of them seek a process that is somewhat seamless, this is what Lance delivered and much more. It was such a pleasure to work with him. Lance knew the market, he knew when and how to change strategies. He executed these strategies well. I do believe that putting my trust in Lance through this process helped. I left him to do what he does best...sell properties. Thanks Lance for all your efforts"Mrs Tan
"We carefully chose Lance based on his successful track record, excellent communication skills and extensive real estate knowledge. He listened carefully to our needs and gave us excellent advice in what is required in order to achieve the best possible price. His appraisal of the property was comprehensive and quite accurate. Our property was sold at auction at the upper end of the estimated sale range.
Lance has shown integrity, professionalism, honesty and impeccable manners at all times. We would surely recommend Lance and his team at Barfoot & Thompson to anyone who wishes to sell."
"Lance was knowledgeable about the market, gave excellent advice in terms of the sale price we might achieve, how to present the property and also the process of selling it. He communicated well and exceeded our expectations in every regard. Dealing with Lance in the sale of this property was the smoothest and easiest property sale I have ever made. Thank you Lance."Martin - Coronation Rd, Hillcrest

"Thanks again for the professionalism and commitment you showed during the sale of our house. I really felt at ease working with you and found that you were highly approachable. I appreciated your up front honesty in regards to trying to help me understand the market. It was your advice before any offers were made, that really helped me make well informed decisions. Your approach to it all was very respectful and unobtrusive and I am thankful for that. Overall, this was such a positive experience and I thoroughly enjoyed the buzz of it all.
