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!"

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. Terry and Stella Hewitt
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,Rustom, Tanaz, Monaz and Shehryar Turel
"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."Jinnie
"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
