We would like to recommend to any prospective home seller in West Auckland, Lawrence Stevens from Barfoot & Thompson, who looked after the sale of our property for us. As we no longer live in New Zealand, we were reliant on Lawrence's knowledge and experience in the field and area. His professional yet approachable and conversational style was exactly what was needed for the sale of our property. His attention to detail and forward thinking was second-to-none and ensured the result was what we were looking for. Thanks LawrenceGerald & Pega
Thank you so much for helping us sell our house! We are thrilled with the price reached at auction which has allowed us to consider houses which we had previously ruled out as 'next level'. After meeting a few real estate agents, we chose you because you came across as the most professional, and we were not disappointed. We appreciated your considered approach Lawrence, and the time you spent explaining the details to us so we understood what was happening at each stage of the process.
Through the whole process, we felt secure that our house sale was in good hands, and we are super stoked with the outcome. We also saw the benefit of selling with Barfoot & Thompson, with so many different agents bringing buyers through our house. We would definitely sell with Barfoot & Thompson again, and if anyone asked us if we knew a good real estate agent, we would definitely recommend you. Thanks again, and all the best for the next sale.

We first met Lawrence 12 years ago when we were looking for a house in west Auckland and although in the end we purchased through another company, we were sufficiently impressed with his honesty and professional attitude to offer him sole agency when it recently came time to move on. Not only was Lawrence successful in finding a buyer for our property, his experience and knowledge of the market proved invaluable for finding the perfect house for our present needs. In particular, the support and advice he gave us in navigating both our sale and purchase was outstanding and much appreciated.Ann & Badar
Lawrence and May worked very hard while selling our house. They always presented us with the latest market information which helped a lot in making our decisions. Both had a very personal touch and were always open and honest in the service they provided. Despite a sometimes tricky property market to navigate they always had the time to present the full picture as well as detailed weekly analysis, helping us to hold out for the best price. We were really satisfied with the entire experience.Ben and Sophie

"This is to express our gratitude to you for your efforts in negotiating the sale of our house at 44 Nacton Lane, Avondale. During the final stages of our agreement period with Barfoot & Thompson we had almost given up all hopes of the sale and thus the purchase of a house of our choice. It was your untiring efforts by which you kept the negotiations alive to make the sale possible keeping our interests still covered. We appreciate the help you extended beyond your terms to the extent in search of the details and viewing the house of our choice and giving us appropriate advice.
Once again we thank you for everything and wish you a bright future."

We would not hesitate in recommending him to anyone seeking a residential sales person of outstanding ability."
"We appreciated the professional manner with which you handled the sale of our property. Your advice and discussion with us was always rational and intelligent, without any emotional reference to the current difficult economic times. Hence we never felt under pressure to change our stance on our property sale, nor did we ever feel irritated by unnecessary hype.
The feedback was always prompt, relevant and detailed. Thank you.
Should we be selling another property, or have friends who are, we shall not hesitate to recommend you as an agent."
