Having completed a Business degree majoring in Real Estate Lisa joined Barfoot & Thompson in 2001 successfully selling residential properties for five years prior to having a family.
She then utilised her business and marketing skills to set up an online retail business harnessing the power of social media and e-commerce tools.
Combining the online business experience with a love of real estate, coupled with the life experience of buying and selling properties in central Auckland she comes back into the real estate world with renewed enthusiasm to help people on their property journey.
She is an open, honest, communicator always ensuring her clients best interests are at the heart of her work.
Lisa and husband Paul have three children and are passionate about people, community and family. Lisa is a Board of Trustee member of Marist School, a member of the Baradene College PTA and an active supporter of Starship Children's Hospital. These are things close to her heart.
Real estate is truly in her blood as Lisa is the third family member to sell real estate for Barfoot & Thompson. Her Mum Jean Smith is a branch manager with over 35 years experience and an inductee in the Hall of Fame and her brother Craig is also a branch manager.
If you are looking for a salesperson to come on the journey of selling your home, who understands the 24/7 online and social media world, who will care about you and your outcomes, then Lisa is the one for you.
When you decide to sell your much-loved family home after 20 years, you need a salesperson that is professional and respectful of this emotional journey. Lisa Courtney provided a dedicated service throughout the marketing campaign, supporting the photography and home-staging process so the house was presented beautifully. Lisa’s positive and bubbly personality allowed for easy communication between all parties and importantly was available and responsive to any questions. Our choice to have a local and dedicated team ( Lisa & Derek) suited our needs well. We have already recommended her to close friends which is testimony of her attentiveness and dedication. Thanks so much Lisa.Juliette & Paul Wotton
It is a pleasure to write this testimonial for Lisa. Lisa was the salesperson for the sale of our house and, after contacting her when looking for a new property, pleasingly managed the purchase of our new home. She has been just wonderful and highly professional throughout the whole process. We very much appreciated her quick response to our endless questions, her knowledge of the market, and her patience. Lisa is really personable which made us feel at ease from the time we met her. I have no hesitation in recommending her and would contact her again if required.Alison Spence & Doug Crutch
We love Lisa! As first home buyers, the property landscape was a new world of confusing jargon and process. Lisa guided us along every step and helped us secure our first home. Always happy and enthusiastic even at 9pm on a Saturday night during three days of negotiating and signatures. Thank you Lisa. We love our home!Dean, Bebe, and Delcie
Lisa made the whole [sales] process really easy, from start to finish. She liaised with the tenants and property manager to ensure open homes ran smoothly, and was always quick to reply to my many questions. Thank you!David R
Lisa Courtney from the Barfoot & Thompson Mt Eden office has recently acted as our real estate agent in selling our Sandringham house. She was professional and thorough throughout the entire process and put in extra effort beyond our expectations to support us and the process. This ended with a good result. Her ongoing communication and feedback was detailed and helped us to understand the current market. Lisa was a pleasure to deal with.
We found that there was a real benefit in using Barfoot & Thompson as their wide network of agents and contacts was of significant benefit to us.
"Lisa is a self motivated, proactive and positive agent. She takes the responsibility of marketing your property seriously. She was always available and often volunteered to take on further tasks, demonstrating a willingness to go the extra mile. Lisa proved herself to be a very effective communicator and always kept all parties informed."Mr & Mrs Cournane
"Lisa handled the recent sale of a property for me that had been in the family for 46years. She presented me with a detailed marketing plan and suggested to secure the highest price we should consider putting the property up for Tender. Initially I was hesitant about the Tender process, however decided to trust Lisa's expertise and agreed. The result was that we accepted an offer that was $40,000 over our expectation. Without Lisa's help and direction I am sure we would have settled for less. This combined with Lisa's excellent communication skills took much of the stress out of selling the property. I would heartily recommend Lisa to any prospective Vendor."C Edwards
