I am extremely excited about helping you accomplish your real estate goals!
I moved into real estate because it is a people business. It also involves listening to and understanding your needs as clients and building trustworthy relationships.
I have been a teacher most of my working life. I enjoyed my job as an adult educator particularly interacting with adults from various cultural backgrounds and professions. This profession gave me a chance to hone my interpersonal and people's skills along with developing empathy and ability to connect with people from various walks of life.
The skills from my previous profession are transferrable to real estate along with my values of truthfulness, honesty and integrity.
I live locally in Lynfield and understand the area well having lived here for almost nine years. I love Lynfield for its cultural diversity and proximity to beautiful bays and bush walks.
I am a proud mother of two beautiful children. My hobbies are reading, travelling, cooking and playing soccer with Mia (my Jack Russell) and taking her for walks.
My philosophy in life is - "There is no substitute for hard work!"
Firstly, thank you to you and your team for the successful sale of my Richardson Road property. I especially would like to thank Monica for the excellent work she did on marketing the property. She gave us excellent suggestions regarding staging and making the property as appealing as possible. She even brought some of her own furniture for the staging. Her suggestions and expertise were brilliant. She always communicated well with us with regards to buyer feedback. I would definitely recommend her to any of my friends if they want to sell their property.
“It’s getting close to our settlement day (just over a week to go), so before this happens, Joy and I would like to express our gratitude and thanks to your team at Blockhouse Bay and especially the efforts of David Wang and Monica Bajaj.
We have sold several properties over the years but this has been by far our best experience. From our first meeting with David and Monica we felt very comfortable, they listened intently and we felt they understood our needs. They also conveyed a good understanding of our property, location and market place.
Once the campaign started they quickly showed they had everything under control. We were completely at ease and happy to stand back and let them see the campaign through to completion. They worked with no fanfare, just sound judgement and good principles, which accumulated in a fantastic result on the day of the auction.
Our thanks to you, your team, and to David and Monica.John & Joy Hewlett
I worked with Monica during a very uncertain time when the world was basically in lockdown for 4 weeks (Covid19) and the real estate market was changing rapidly. My family and I were looking at selling our house which was extremely daunting due to such uncertain circumstances and also try find our dream house to move into.
It was during this whole period where I found Monica to be so calm, patient, professional, reassuring and extremely proactive. Monica’s knowledge of the market and experience as a professional real estate salesperson really shone through. She not only made the whole process so seamless and managed everything but came through with all of our needs and requirements. We are so grateful for making one of the biggest decisions of our lives so seamless Monica!
I would highly recommend working with Monica whether it’s selling or buying a house as she has the skill-set of really understanding her clients and working with you to achieve the best results.
Once again thanks a lot Monica! We really enjoyed working with you!

It was a pleasure to have Monica Bajaj as a professional guide helping us through our first home buy in Auckland. Especially when we had no clue where to start! We only provided her with our wish list and thereafter she was right on the job with her professional support and guidance at each and every step. She was patient with all our anxious queries and her thorough work approach and positive and enthusiastic attitude helped us sail through effectively during the time we were house-hunting in the market. We really enjoyed being in trusted hands. Thank you so much Monica for such a great support and we're sure to recommend you to those looking to buy their dream home in Auckland! Keep it up��
Thank you and wish you all the best in all your endeavours.
Sold within two weeks! Monica was awesome she helped for hours prepare our house interior for taking photos and went beyond. Monica always kept in contact with us and send us updates of what's happening .. Very happy we went with her . Would highly recommend to friends and family. She provided an outstanding and very helpful service. She made herself readily available to come around to us anywhere anytime to speak with us personally even we live so far away. Me and Jessie would not hesitate to recommend Monica to any of our family and friends should they require a real estate agent in the future.
Thank you from
"I recently sold my house in Blockhouse Bay and Monica was my sales agent. I was not referred to anyone in Barfoot & Thompson but I decided to walk into the Blockhouse Bay branch, and I was fortunate enough to be introduced to Monica. As I was an overseas vendor, there were certain things that needed to be done around the house in order to prepare it for sale. To me, Monica went above and beyond of what is expected of a sales agent as she helped with the minor touch-ups and repairs of the house to prepare for the sale preparation without additional fees. Monica was very efficient and professional in all her dealings, and kept a very good channel of communication every step of the way. I would highly recommend Monica to be your sales agent if you want a professional service for the sale of your house.
Once again, thank you for your help."
Barfoot & Thompson were a breeze to work with. Very professional and available at all times. If you're selling in Lynfield, make sure you ask for Monica!Lucy and Emiel
We recently sold a property in Lynfield. The sale was very successful and part of that was due to Monica Bajaj. From the time we signed up with Monica and Barfoot & Thompson, we were impressed. Monica kept us updated regularly, answered various questions, guided us through times of uncertainty. Monica assisted in preparing the house for auction, from the selection of the package for advertising to staging the house to the use of social media for further advertising. Her dedication and commitment went beyond the call of duty with her investing significantly in the process.
We recommend Monica Bajaj for your property transaction.
My Wife and I bought our family home via Barfoot & Thompson last August and Monica was the agent who had listed the property. We loved dealing with Monica, we found her friendly, informative, upfront with a relaxed approach when dealing with us. Even though Monica was representing the vendor we found her extremely open and helpful and a person of high integrity. Monica made it easy for us to decide on buying our home and one year on, we couldn't be happier having found our little slice of paradise- thanks Monica!"Anton Leyland - Head of Recipe Development, My Food Bag
SOLD That's exactly what happened when we asked Monica to sell our much loved family home for us. We met Monica at an open home for another property she was selling, and straight away we were impressed with her professionalism and friendly manner. We listed our property with Monica and she made the process very easy and informed us very well throughout. Monica is a very hard-working and dedicated person, and we would highly recommend getting in touch with her if you have property to sell. Thanks Monica for all your hard work.Andrew & Debbie Aley - Lynfield
We have had the pleasure of working with Monica as both a seller, and also looking for a new home. We first met Monica when she presented a buyer for our property. During the process, we were able to express what we were looking for, and at no time did we feel pressured or as if we were being managed to another price expectation. We always felt that she was working for us and making sure the buyer understood our position and Monica managed to make both us and the buyer happy with the final price - which is great considering it can be such a stressful process.
During the search for a home, Monica was also both patient and thorough. She showed only properties that met certain criteria, and was patient enough to spend the time with us to feel comfortable making a buying decision. We really appreciated the fact that she wasn't pushy, and that she really took the time to understand us as people and what we really wanted.
We noticed Monica has great people reading skills and also possesses the ability to communicate in a very clear and effective manner which made the whole process really clean and simple. We really think that this is a great part of her success and we would have absolutely no hesitation to use Monica again for any future sales or purchases.
If you are reading this you may well be looking to buy or sell a house & we would love to share our home buying experience with Monica Bajaj- our realtor from Barfoot & Thompson, Blockhouse Bay.
When we first met Monica, we learnt that she was fairly new in the real estate field and we had our in- exhaustive wish list, tight budget and limited time to look for a house. This was a big challenge that Monica took upon herself to find us a home. We were very pleased and relieved that unlike other agents, Monica actually took time to know what we wanted in a home.
Like clockwork Monica would send new listings, set time and appointment for the weekend, and drive us around to open homes. After the first few home visits Monica recognised our style. Many an open homes and auctions later we came upon this house in East Auckland where we really needed to act fast. All that evening and the next day Monica kept shuttling between Blockhouse Bay and Dannemora, negotiating the deal in our favour. We would not be sitting in this house without Monica's commitment and the urgency and patience she handled it with.
Throughout the home buying process Monica was always reachable, extremely responsive and thoughtful in her recommendations. We never felt pressured or rushed into any decision. She is the most service- oriented realtor we have known and would recommend her services to anyone.
We are doing well, settling into our new home. It is hard to believe that it has been almost two months since we moved in.
We commend you Monica, for your excellent service during the purchase of our home. We had certain concerns in the beginning, of you being a newbie in this field, but your performance as our advocate was a true blessing and comfort. You went over and above our expectations to make it happen. Thank you so much for all your hard work. Your caring nature, integrity and dedication to your job and clients will bring you many successes of which we are very sure.
Thank you and kind regards,
"Monica is absolutely delightful to work with, and I have been blessed to have her involved in helping me choose a beautiful lifestyle property.
She assisted me effortlessly, nothing was too hard with everything from beginning through to completion. I have had a very pleasant interaction with Barfoot and Thomson as a result as she represented the brand beautifully.
I am thankful to her for her advice, due diligence, prompt answers and help with queries to help me choose and purchase a property that I can cherish and will reside in for a long time. She knew what I wanted and ensured I got it, with no pressure of any sort.
I would be very happy to recommend her and use her services again in the future."
"Our search for a property that suits our needs had been unsuccessful for quite sometime. Thanks to Monica's tireless effort we were finally able to purchase a house that suited our requirements and much more. She is a wonderful communicator who took a lot of pressure away from us during this hectic period and made buying a property really enjoyable. As someone who works full time she made it easy for me to view properties, working around my schedule, even if it meant viewing homes outside her working hours. We really appreciate her hard work and highly recommend Monica to anyone who is currently struggling in the housing market. Thank you, Monica."Seema
"Monica was very helpful in finding a right home to meet our requirements in this busy period and made my new home purchase process comfortable and easy. She is a delight to work with. I will recommend her to my family and friends."B Gundu
"As young first home owners, especially in the current Auckland property market, the decision to sell was quite intimidating. We had a lot of questions around the process and uncertainty on what to expect. It was very reassuring to have someone like Monica during this process to help answer our tireless onslaught of questions and patiently guide us through every step, regardless of the time of day! She made the entire experience very pleasant and had us at ease from the moment we decided to sell with her & Barfoot. The process was smooth and the outcome far exceeded our expectations - we sold in just over a week! We would like to sincerely thank Monica for her efforts and would most certainly look in the same direction for our next move in the property market."Aneesh & Panova
