We decided to employ Michael Cassidy and Kevin He as the salespeople to market and sell our home in Blockhouse Bay. We did this for two reasons. First, they have a high profile in our area and are well-recognised for their abilities to get things done for their clients. And second, a couple who are friends of ours recently used them to sell their house in our street. They were particularly enthusiastic in their recommendations for the service they received from Michael and Kevin.
Michael and Kevin both lived up to their reputations in selling our home. They prepared a detailed, written marketing plan so we were very aware of the steps they were taking to market our house. They held regular open homes according to the plan, and after each one gave us a detailed verbal report about the interest potential clients were showing in our house. The estimate they provided for the sale price exceeded our expectations but it proved to be a very accurate one. In every aspect, whether it was getting photos of our house prepared or getting marketing material into the community, their work was always very professional and of a very high standard.
Above all their emotional support which they provided to us at this stressful time was amazing. They are both very personable and pleasant men. They come with the highest recommendation from both of us.David & Marietta Child
“Thank you very much for all your enthusiasm and assistance in the early listing of the property. This was a great help to me.”Nigel Faigan
“We would like to take this opportunity to express our gratitude to Barfoot & Thompson, and in particular Michael Cassidy, for the excellent job that was done for us. The time, effort and understanding that Michael put in was outstanding and we would not hesitate to recommend him.”Nina McSweeney & Phill Maguire
“What impressed us particularly was making us aware of the realistic pricing guidelines at which we should be marketing the property and finally selling our property at the full listed price. Another good point that was displayed was the unselfish way in which you marketed the property by consulting with the other Barfoot & Thompson sales in the area – Mt Roskill, Mt Albert, New Lynn, etc. This was evident from the fact that we had 30 odd groups of people come through our property in the first 4 days of listing and the property sold on the fifth day. We would be very happy to recommend you to anyone who is interested in listing their property for sale. Thanking you once again.”Oliver Pereira
"...Thanks for all your help with selling Auckland and don't forget to look us up if you ever come down this way. Summers are lovely here, highest temperatures in the Country. Great place. Thanks again!"Harry & Chris Lawson
"I wish to congratulate Barfoot & Thompson in general, and Michael Cassidy in particular for the way in which the sale was conducted. Michael not only kept me informed in all aspects of the sale, but went the extra distance by adding some touches to an otherwise empty house which made a great deal of difference to first impressions of the place. I would have no hesitation in recommending Barfoot & Thompson to anyone interested in buying or selling, and in fact have already given Michaels card to some friends who are house hunting in this area."D.L Bassett
