What my clients say


We recently sold our home through Barfoot & Thompson - Dot Ngatai and Lorraine Ward. We found both Dot and Lorraine friendly, professional, honest and very knowledgeable. We were kept informed throughout the whole process of the sale. We would totally recommend Dot and Lorraine and if the opportunity arose we would use them again.
Kind regards
Dean & Judy


10 out off 10 on this one, Dot and Lorraine. I am a contractor and a very difficult person to please. So to have fast, efficient, honest advice and a fast sale with all the little loose ends looked after, It was the best real estate sales experience I have had. It is very rare to find those qualities these days, and they even attended to the small things.

After the successful sales of my Mothers properties at Whangarei Heads, we had no hesitation to enlist Dot and Lorraine for the marketing of our property at Pataua North. Once again we were highly satisfied with their professionalism and could not fault their selling ability, we had an offer on our property after the 2nd open Home and before it was even advertised in the local property guide! The girls make a great team, their bubbly personalities are contagious and their work ethics cannot be faulted. Dot and Lorraine are a real credit to Barfoot & Thompson, they care about their Vendor and Purchaser alike - after dealings with other Real Estate agents in the past, this is a rarity! Nothing is too hard or a problem, the girls go out of their way to make the Sales process a breeze and both parties happy with the result!!

We were very pleased with the way Dot and Lorraine from Barfoot & Thompson conducted the Marketing and Promotion of our late Mothers two properties at Whangarei Heads. We felt their professionalism and their knowledge of the area and current market contributed to the quick sale of both properties. It was fantastic to receive feedback after every viewing and open home. We are very happy to recommend their services!!!
Tracy and Carolyn


Over the past 50 odd years we have both bought and sold many houses, and will mark the sale of 43 Church Street by Dot and Lorraine as easily the best experience we have ever had with real estate agents. Right from the beginning we were given absolute clarity on what was going to happen. They quickly found a suitable rental property for our tenant, and the property was expertly staged and marketing underway within three weeks. Three weeks later we had an unconditional sale, and the energy and continuous feedback from these two dynamos was first class. Kate and I have no hesitation in highly recommending Dot and Lorraine to any prospective buyer or seller.

Dear Dot & Lorraine,
Just want to say thanks for the wonderful service you provided in the sale of our property. You both carry a positive proactive demeanour, with the added quality of doing what you say you will do. Great advice given when needed and the house staging was excellent. All in all a fantastic job, with the proof of the job being, you got above the price we had desired.
Thanks and lets do it again

"We found Lorraine's approach to marketing and selling our property exceptional. She has always been available to us for any queries we had. Our Open homes were done with the utmost care and enthusiasm. Not one of them finished at the advertised time, she went the extra mile to ensure that all attending had all the information they needed. Her follow-up with us and the clients has been excellent. We would have no hesitation in using her again and have also recommend her to others. Thank you for a first class presentation and sale of our property. "
Lesley & Kevin


"During the sale of our property, we had the pleasure of having Lorraine Ward as our Agent. We found her easy to work with, she kept in touch continually and we were always well informed all the time. She is very approachable and nothing was a problem. Lorraine spent a great deal of time with the customers that brought our place. A very understanding person and I would recommend her to anyone selling or buying a property."
Heather and Royd Pawson


"The challenge was set; for Lorraine--- sell my property in under the month so I could head back to Europe. My plane tickets were booked. Lorraine's hard work and total commitment along with her excellent marketing skills had her bring me three offers before my deadline. She than negotiated with all parties to get me the price I required. Lorraine worked with my tenants and built up a good relationship with them so she could get her customers through my property. She was always helpful, understanding, and honest and kept in contact with me regular. I would recommend Lorraine to anyone when selling. Thank you so much for helping me to achieve my dream of travelling, I wish you all the success in Real Estate working with you was a wonderful experience."

I recently sold a property at 15 Workman Way, Onerahi, Whangarei. At the time of selling, the property market was exceptionally quiet, which was a worry as I needed a quick sale to allow me to purchase a property at Hibiscus Coast Village. Following interviews with several of Whangarei's top agents, I decided to list with Lorraine Ward of Barfoot and Thompson. I made Lorraine aware that I needed a quick sale at a good price, and she immediatally rose to the challenge. Lorraine was confident that the best way to achieve our goal was to sell at auction, and a three week programme was put into place. The package featured some excellent photography that accentuated the best features of the house. The property went to market and sold the day of the auction for the reserve price, which was an excellent result. A major factor in achieving this success was the way Lorraine created and handled the marketing programme from start to finish. I especially appreciated being kept up to date throughout the process. If I were to buy or sell again in Whangarei, I would have no hesitation in using Lorraine Ward again, and wholeheartedly reccommend her services.
