Creating a point of difference in the market is of utmost importance to me, both as a salesperson and when talking property. Through embracing the latest trends in marketing and utilizing modern technology, it's about time to bring real estate into the 21st century. Combined with my years of experience in negotiating and my sole focus of working hard for my client, I want to deliver a service that is unmatched in today's market.
Having worked in a high performing real estate sales team for four years, my familiarity and knowledge of the Franklin market has established me with a professional, hard-working and motivated attitude that has given proven results. By delivering a genuine and client-care focused service, my aim is to ensure the selling and buying process is as smooth as can be.
In 2006, I moved to New Zealand with my family and have been a local to Franklin ever since. I obtained a diploma in sport and recreation, which is rather under-used in real estate. In my free time I play drums and guitar and spend time with my wife and daughter.
I'm on a mission to break the salesperson stereotype and not just be 'another agent'. With a track record that shows as such, I'm looking forward to talking about how I can help you.
100% recommend selling or buying through Luke and Jason
From start to finish of selling our property, Luke and Jason provided excellent communication throughout which was very important to us, answered our numerous questions and guided us the whole way. Luke and Jason's down-to-earth yet professional approach, made it a pleasure to work with them and we would definitely recommend them to anyone that’s looking to buy or sell.Graham & Trina
Lifestyle Property Sale
We engaged both Jason and Luke recently to sell our lifestyle property. We were new to this and a little nervous around the process. Both Jason and Luke handled everything extremely professionally and kept in constant communication. The marketing plan they developed hit all spectrums of the market, they had some amazing photos done, all resulting in a successful sale. I cannot speak highly enough of way our property listing was shared amongst all of Barfoot & Thompsons salespeople and at one stage we had five salespeople working on our house sale. Great collaboration between salespeople.D & A Teague
Positive, Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness
Thankyou Luke Jupp and Jason Tabrum, for being such a fantastic team. Enthusiastic, hard-working, positive, caring and professional. We are glad we had you on our side while selling our property and appreciate the high level of communication, which wasn't easy as we were at the other end of the country for some of the process! Your commitment showed and we would recommend you both to anyone.
Service with a smile
Can't recommend enough, made the whole daunting selling process easy, great communication nothing was a problem and advertising was amazing. Couldn't be happier, thanks guys.
Jason and Luke did an outstanding job marketing and selling our home. Very professional and great guys all round. Always good for a laugh and the odd vino when time allowed. You can’t go wrong with these guys.
After occupying our property for 20 years it was a pleasure working with Jason & Luke to effect a sale for us. Their professionalism, communication and market knowledge was second-to-none. They worked hard to achieve a great result for us and we would happily recommend them to prospective clients.
Great results in selling something a bit outside the norm
We engaged Luke and Jason after a failed attempt to sell - over many months - with another agency. We were selling in an area that would only appeal to a small percentage of the market, and so the pool of buyers were much smaller than selling in a town or city. Our two properties were a luxury home, and a partly developed section with plans for the build inside a gated rural community. They devised a fresh marketing campaign, planned out where to carry the advertising, open homes and utilised their large group of colleagues in the many branches of the agency to pull in more potential buyers than we had seen before. They were persistent with our prospective buyers, always available and very good at keeping us well informed. We would highly recommend listing with Luke and Jason, and will certainly do it again ourselves next time we have a property to sell.
The Proof of the Power of Two
Luke and Jason were fantastic to deal with, right from the beginning to the end of our sale. They were honest, transparent and always had our best interests at heart. We found them easy and fun and always upfront and professional with their communication. From the very beginning, they listened to what we wanted and didn't try to sway or talk us into things we weren't comfortable with. We love the fact, that they have combined their strengths to form "the power of two"! Its like getting the very best out of two already awesome guys. Keep on doing what you are doing guys, cause it sure is working. Thanks for a fun, informed and caring team sale.
Jason and Luke were amazing to work with and I highly recommend them to everyone! Great advice and communication, engaging, diligent, very professional, made themselves available anytime, worked extremely hard and produced a great outcome! Absolutely LOVED their marketing which was a significant part of getting so many people through and allowing people the time to fall in love with our home as much as we did. I truly recognise the real value of what Jason and Luke provided to us. It was such a seamless process for us working with them, yet they worked so hard behind the scenes and kept us well informed all along the way (a really nice balance of advice, market information and updates). Don’t underestimate the ROI of getting the right team to represent your home. Ours was a complete success from start to end with thanks to Jason and Luke, I simply can not say enough great things about them and will definitely call on them again.Tu-Ahn & Shane
An enjoyable experience with a fantastic result
Luke and Jason are a great team and made us feel comfortable from the get-go. They were honest and very professional. They listened to what we wanted and were respectful of our decisions. We ended up getting a dream price for our lifestyle property - well over what we expected. Jason and Luke always communicated well and we would highly recommend them to anyone who is thinking of selling. We cannot thank them enough for their role in our selling process.
When it came to selling our property, we were seeking a salesperson(s) who was knowledgeable in our market and with a proven track record. We found these qualities in Luke and Jason. They provided us with great marketing advice and regular feedback and this was done in a highly professional and positive manner. We couldn't be happier with the outcome of our sale and their performance as our real estate salespeople!
Luke and Jason are a wonderful team - very professional, friendly and keen to help in any way they could, particularly valuable as we were changing areas and were away for three weeks while on the market., and at the same time, getting through the final hurdles of a boundary change in time to sell. The property actually sold while we were away so this meant extra work in the form of phone calls with frustrating struggles with little signal at times, emails, liaising with our solicitor, surveyor and other parties on our behalf, etc. It was no mean feat and we really appreciate that extra help they gave us. Would absolutely recommend Luke and Jason, and Barfoot &Thompson.Jenny & Duncan
Helpful and easy to deal with. Kept me up-to-date with data, phone calls and emails. I felt that they were really working on my behalf to sell the property.Lynne
Thank you both so much for selling our lovely property. We were very impressed with how professional you both were. Nothing was too much of a problem. You catered for our needs brilliantly and never wasted our time once. It was especially noticeable how you worked really hard for your vendors which is something we all want and need. Your honest straightforward approach is a credit to you and Barfoot & Thompson. If anybody is wanting real quality salespeople, then we would never hesitate to recommend Luke and Jason.
We will miss the interaction with you. Thanks again, we wish you good luck and fortune in your profession.Neil & Deb
We had a great experience working with Luke and Jason to secure a dream property for our young family. Both were easy to deal with, very approachable and went above-and-beyond to assist the parties after hours during the negotiation and sale process. They made what could have been a very stressful time, relatively stress-free with open and clear communication and the perfect amount of humour. We absolutely recommend working with Luke and Jason. Great team!Tom & Nat
Luke Jupp was our salesperson selling our property in Paparimu in such crazy times ..His positivity and innovation is commendable, and the way he dealt with the sale and being patient with us as a separated couple was awesome. Nothing was too much trouble and he also took our needs and ideas on board but ultimately he kept up the momentum to get a buyer ..I can't say enough how professional he was and yet able to connect on a human level to give us confidence in his approach. .....In 2008 during the housing crash we were ripped off by a salesperson from another company. It left me very non-trusting ..Luke restored that trust in salespeople, making me highly recommend Barfoot & Thompson to family and friends thinking of selling or buying .Although Covid messed things up so much, he never lost confidence in getting a buyer at a realistic price.Alan
We have found that throughout the procedures of buying and selling the conduct of the agents has been exemplary. Their communication skills were excellent, their advice sound, and they always listened to our comments with understanding, resulting in a very quick and successful exchange of properties. Both Luke and Brooke are a credit to their profession and to Barfoot & Thompson.
Luke and Brooke did a great job selling our house. Their attitude was always positive and they worked hard to get us sold. We are very happy with the result.Graham and Helen
Just wanted to thank you for actively keeping us in the loop of potential properties in the Franklin region over the last 6-12 months. You've been great Luke, and while we didn't find "the one" you were definitely the most proactive agent and committed to try and connect us to the property that could have become our home.
We have had lots of experience with various agents during our long house-hunting process, and you deserve the compliment and recognition to say you've been one of our faves. You've been easy going, honest, proactive and accommodating for house viewings at short notice or after hours etc.
Thanks again for your support and service.
All the best for your career and family life.
We would like to say what a pleasure you have made the whole purchasing experience for us, your professionalism, communication and willingness to help have made for a very pleasant experience. Keep up the great work, you're a real asset to Barfoot & Thompson. I am sure that we will be working together again in the future.
I've worked in sales for global corporates for the majority of my career and also purchased and sold a number of properties. Subsequently I have met a wide variety of different sales professionals, but very rarely do any leave an impression on me. Luke, however, is easily one of the most skilful real estate agents I have ever come across. His ongoing patience, approachability, hard work, flexibility and understanding were unwavering and he made a massive difference to our family during the purchase process. Luke's approach is hugely refreshing. He is genuine and efficient and regardless of which different properties we viewed, his knowledge of them was always excellent.
I would thoroughly recommend Luke to anyone. Whether buying or selling, Luke will do a phenomenal job for you and ensure your property journey is professional, effortless and enjoyable.
We have found Luke to be outstanding in every way possible. He made buying our first home not stressful as we expected, but such a positive experience. Nothing was too much trouble, no question unanswered, and I had a lot of questions! We could not have asked for a better experience and that is thanks to Luke. We would absolutely recommend him to any home buyers who are wanting an absolute professional who is dedicated, absolutely lovely to deal with and completely client focused. Thanks so much Luke!Maria and Paul
We recently used Scott and his team for the sale of our rural lifestyle property. If you are making the decision of whom to trust your valued property with, we strongly recommend you talk to Scott. It is difficult to convey the extent to which the magic of their team pulls everything together for a perfect result. The team is unique in how it operates - we know of no other team that can cover all bases to this extent - which takes so much of the usual stress out of selling. You will reap the benefits of their networking abilities; marketing and negotiating experience, knowledge and energy - all of which is delivered in such a professional, genuine and calming manner, and all of which comes together for your benefit. For these people, we are truly grateful. They are tall poppies in the industry and deserve every success. Biggest gratitude to the team and our special thanks to Luke for his energy, commitment and enthusiasm in getting the job done. You all come with our highest recommendation. (A special mention too for Holly the photographer - a committed and clever lady and a total asset to complete the perfect package.)Marilou & Murray - June 2018
Highly recommended .. awesome team .. thanks to Scott, Luke and their team for a great result SOLD!Wayne - May 2018
"It was a pleasure to have dealt with you when purchasing our new home. We found your professional manner and attention to detail reassuring and the constant communication through all stages of the process has been second to none. No question was too small, you offered help, were encouraging and polite. Thank you for all you have done and we wish you well and cannot recommend you highly enough and wish you every success in the future."Melanie and Jason Belcher
As a typical New Zealander I have had many property dealings in my life and usually when I buy a property, the sales person makes zero impression on me. However Luke Jupp impressed us from the first Open Home we met him. He appeared engaged in a relaxed way and we felt he instantly understood what we would like. He sent us to his next open home and sure enough we bought that property. Throughout the whole process Luke was attentive, professional and thorough and he was always happy to accommodate our quite demanding requests for information and re-visits. I have never been moved to write a letter of recommendation about an estate agent I was buying from till now. Luke deserves high praise and I would be very happy referring anyone to him.James and Flick Davies
From the first viewing of the property to handing over the keys, Luke was able to answer any questions we had along the way and made the buying process a smooth and enjoyable experience. He is professional whilst also being relatable and easy to deal with. I would highly recommend Luke to anybody looking to purchase a property.Jamie & Pauline Brockliss
Luke is a very friendly and professional agent. Right from the get go he made us feel welcome and made the whole process seamless. He worked around my odd hours for work, meeting me at times I was available, and was with us right through to being our agent for the phone bidding at the auction. As purchasers my wife and I are very happy of the level of service Luke provided us. He always made us feel that everything was taken care of. I would highly recommend Luke for any real estate sales and purchases, and hopefully sometime we can use his services again in the future.James & Emma Staunton
I would like to thank you for your invaluable assistance in the purchase of our property in Drury. Your knowledge and expertise of real estate in Papakura, Drury area enhanced our ability to locate exactly what we desired. We very much appreciate all of the time you invested, along with your patience and professional courtesy.
After letting you know what we were looking for in a home, you were able to grasp current marketed houses that met my request. You made yourself available when we could look at houses and you were always reachable whenever we had a question. You always makes me feel like helping me is your highest priority. This is such different compare with other agents. It was only after we had looked at two house together that you knew what we "really" wanted...
I can't say enough about your professionalism, true caring nature, and extensive knowledge/connections. Luke, you bring all these qualities to the table for your clients. Your branch sales manager Christopher Hirini is also a true gem--supporting you and providing excellent, personalized service as well.
Based on our experiences with selling and purchasing several homes before this one, you have, by far, been the best real estate agent that we have worked with and we would highly recommend you to anyone looking for a real estate agent. Once again, thanks for a job well done! Thanks again!
