I would like to say a huge thank you to the Barfoot & Thompson team. Our experience from start to finish in selling our home was wonderful and the sales team were exemplary. Our listing salesperson, Meredith Galliven, was an absolute delight to deal with. She kept us calm and informed and I cannot thank her enough. The auctioneer and everyone involved in our sale were all very professional and a pleasure to have working for us. I will not hesitate to shout from the roof tops that this is the company to deal with. Bravo to all of you and especially Meredith, she is a real treasure.Jenni & Graham Booth, Orewa

"We met Meredith some time ago at one of her open homes and decided then that we would use her to sell our home. We were taken with her positive and bubbly personality and also very impressed with her helpful attitude towards people looking to buy property. She has just sold our home for us and she was truly excellent. Meredith is very knowledgeable and knows the area so well, she gave great advice and we also feel we have made a good friend. We would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking for a truly fantastic real estate salesperson."Denis & Bev Hogg, Orewa
We both took to Meredith from the word go. Her friendly smile, easy going manner and patience, put us at our ease right away at quite a traumatic time. Her realistic, sound knowledge of the local market, plus advice on presenting our home for marketing gave us confidence to sell. Meredith’s knowledge, plus efficiency dealing with relevant documentation was second-to-none.
Following open homes and viewings we received quick and informative feedback. We think Meredith is a gem and highly recommend her to potential clients.Peter & Rachel Gundy, Orewa
Before choosing a real estate salesperson, my wife and I conducted a lot of research to see who would be the best choice to sell our property in Orewa. Meredith Galliven of Barfoot & Thompson stood out as the most appropriate. We met her at her office and instantly we knew that we had made a good choice. Her bubbly character along with approachable demeanour really made us comfortable to talk to her and explain about our expectations of sale. Meredith has a very positive approach to work and is hard working which instils confidence in her clients. Everything that was discussed went according to the plan and Meredith always kept us updated with remarks from the prospective buyers and the feedback report. She sold our unit on the auction day and we are very delighted with the outcome. We've had a great experience with Barfoot & Thompson and if I have to buy or sell, I will have no hesitation to go and tap on Meredith shoulders for help and recommend to my friends.Mandar Bhide
To sell our house recently we engaged the services of Meredith Galliven and were extremely impressed with her enthusiasm and thoroughness in achieving a great result for us. Her knowledge and her professional and friendly manner removed any stress from what can be an unsettling time when you have your house on the market. We have no hesitation in recommending Meredith highly to future home sellers.Ken & Nancye Mueller, Orewa
"I cannot recommend Meredith highly enough! She went over and above to get our Orewa property prepared for sale and got it successfully sold under the most trying and restrictive national circumstances. She was a pleasure to work with: efficient, skilled, realistic, extremely knowledgeable about the local market, quick to provide feedback, and all with a bright, bubbly personality. I appreciate the way in which she always did that little (actually big) bit extra. I would most definitely work with her again."Barry Reay
"The thought of selling my property in Orewa whilst based in Taranaki was daunting, however I needn't have worried after appointing Meredith to market and sell the property - she is exceptional! I felt very comfortable and confident to leave things in her capable hands. Meredith took care of everything required to prepare the house for the market including arranging the power connection, cleaning and furniture staging ready for photography and marketing. Being an ex-rental property, this was not an easy task and Meredith made the process easy and stress-free for me. Meredith is professional and provided really great advice. Even with a contract in place she worked hard to secure back-up contracts to get the best possible result for me. I would thoroughly recommend Meredith as a top agent to anyone looking to sell their home. "Lindy MacDiarmid
