Prior to real estate, my career began in the buzz of the London fashion industry. It was here I quickly learned to think on my feet. I also learned a valuable life lesson that being kind, approachable and consistent is key to building strong working relationships.
I bring my natural style and flair to the table to prepare your home for the market. When your property is presented at its absolute best, you’ll achieve the very best result. You can then move on to your much dreamt of venture!
Kumeu is a rural community just 25 kms north-west of the Auckland CBD. I live locally and it’s a community I genuinely care about. I’m proud to show clients around and highlight what makes it so special.
When it comes to the buying and selling process, I have excellent communication and negotiating skills and a cluster of raving fans who will happily tell you, that by engaging with me, you'll see results beyond your expectations.
Professional and friendly service
Melissa was absolutely amazing through the whole process. She made us feel like this was the right decision and welcomed us to the community. She was efficient, and reliable and made the whole move easy. Can’t thank her enough.Ashley - Buyer 21 Aporo Drive
An amazing human being
I think my subject says it all. Melissa is an amazing human being. A joy to talk to. Always positive and friendly. Very encouraging and always hopeful and helpful.James - Vendor
A+++! Goes the extra mile!
Mel is very passionate about helping people to achieve their goals and dreams. Mel invested all of her time and energy into selling my house very quickly (within three weeks!), to enable me to make the next move forward in my life. She bent over backwards to ensure we were totally happy every step of the way, even going the extra mile with the little things, to make us feel important.
I highly recommend Mel as your next real estate salesperson. If you're looking for someone who is extremely friendly and lovely, and also professional, then Mel is the salesperson for you.Jen Mackay - Vendor Aporo Drive, Huapai
A smooth experience!
Having Melissa sell our home recently was a real pleasure. She is very genuine in her approach and we very much appreciated her positive and warm attitude. It's clear that Melissa has a love for all things property and we highly recommend her to any prospective vendors.Mandy
Absolutely above and beyond!
Melissa was so amazing from beginning to end. She genuinely cared about selling my place and helping me find my new home. Mel kept in regular contact and was very knowledgeable about the market and the process making me feel completely at ease. I can't recommend Mel and the Kumeu Barfoot & Thompson team highly enough if you want a personal, professional and efficient sale/purchase. Will definitely use Mel again in the future.Claire
