What my clients say

My elderly father recently sold his family home and purchased a new home in a new area. Mark Leaver, our salesperson from Barfoot & Thompson, did an outstanding job gently helping my dad through the stressful process. Mark worked hard to get the most for the property and at the same time was already seeking to find the best place for Dad to buy. We were lucky to have sold within two weeks of being on the market and one-week later Dad had purchased. Mark made the process easy for my dad and he achieved an excellent result. The Barfoot & Thompson Orewa team were also very supportive - especially on the day of the auction. Thank you!!


We were very happy with Mark’s open and honest approach when selling our property. He was organised, friendly, and supportive. Mark kept us up-to-date with all feedback and worked hard for us to get the right price for our house. What stood out the most was that he never discouraged other salespeople from putting forward offers. I think this is a unique selling point when you sell through Barfoot & Thompson.

Mark’s down-to-earth and relatable approach made the experience enjoyable and we are very grateful for his guidance throughout the process. His knowledge and professionalism, along with his kindness and respect towards us raised our confidence. Without hesitation, we would strongly recommend Mark to any other prospective seller. 

We look forward to working with you on our next property deal!

Kind regards

 I had the pleasure of working with Mark Leaver. It's hard to find genuine real estate salespeople who care for you, your property and the history properties have, especially as this was my family home, and letting it finally go was a difficult process. I did not have a great experience with the last salesperson I had, so having to go through another was questionable for me. I'm so glad Mark took me on board! He is kind, genuine, tells you the facts and does not sugar-coat anything, which is what I prefer. Even with things I did not want to hear, he would tell me but also be really optimistic at the same time and offer a real solution, so he wouldn't leave you hanging or scratching your head...... Of course with selling a home, patience is key. Mark was always keeping me in the loop with what was happening and even if there wasn't much movement, he would make something happen. I found Mark extremely resilient and I could trust him and the process. The result, well I could not be happier!!!!! Mark delivered. He worked so hard and tirelessly to find the right buyer for me. I was ecstatic!! So thankful to Mark and the team at Barfoot & Thompson. A great company with great people that get the job done.



Mark’s experience as a real estate professional was evident in our dealings with him. He made the process of selling our house on Galway Bay Terrace, Stonefields as painless as possible providing sound advice and guidance from the moment we engaged him. Nothing was too much trouble for Mark and he made sure that we were kept well informed as the marketing process progressed. One of Mark’s key skills is the ability to build trusting relationships quickly and this was evident through the marketing process. Mark’s superb knowledge and skills together with Barfoot & Thompson’s reach make for a compelling proposition. Thanks for a great result Mark.

Best wishes.

Both Mark Leaver and Chris Saldanha provided very professional service and I am very happy they got me a very quick sale on my Tennessee Avenue property.

I was fortunate to have met Mark when I purchased my ‘dream’ property and consequently he in return has been able to sell my previous unit. He is very supportive, friendly and exceedingly willing to please. Mark has always been there to help and no task has been too big. I have really appreciated his honesty, trustworthiness and professional approach to the job and always felt he had my best interests as his number one priority.I would highly recommend Mark as a reliable, competent real estate salesperson and wish him all the best in the future.



I asked Mark to sell our family home as part of an estate process. He navigated the complexity of the emotional issues that accompany that situation with grace, patience, and the right amount of directness. I appreciated the easy relationship and trust that Mark brings with him to every interaction. He is hard working and authentic, and I'd recommend him to anyone looking to sell their home.

Hi Mark
I am enjoying looking at the green sticker on the board outside. Thank you for facilitating the successful sale of my property. It was a great pleasure working with you. You were very thorough in explaining the whole process to which for a first time seller put my mind at rest as well as keeping me informed on the progress on an almost daily basis. I did appreciate the very professional way you conducted the whole sale from our initial meeting right up to and including the auction. This did put me at ease the whole time and felt there was a mutual trust between us. If anybody asks I would definitely recommend you to help them sell their property. Once again thank you for the successful sale of my property
Kind Regards

We are pleased to provide Mark Leaver with a personal reference regarding performance as a sale agent for our previous property. It was nearly 38 years since we had any experience of the property market, so we were quite apprehensive of the process and had already had a number of unpleasant experiences in the selling process before we met him. We found Mark very supportive and understanding of our feelings so many of our worries did not eventuate. We felt no pressure during any of our contacts and we were surprised that he mentioned other sales people positively and he was proactive in using his contacts which resulted in a very satisfactory sale of our home.
We would recommend him to anyone, especially someone who might be apprehensive about buying or selling property. We wish him well.

Mark Leaver recently sold our family Bach at Piha which we had owned for nearly 20 years. It was an emotional time for us selling a dearly loved holiday home, but Mark helped up us with sensitivity and guidance. He advised us well on how best to present our property - the promotional material he and his team produced we felt was outstanding and certainly showed our property in the best light possible. We were lucky enough to have a few offers in a short period of time - Mark was extremely professional in how he presented and discussed the offers which ultimately led to a good sale. Mark worked closely with us to achieve the best possible outcome which was great as we navigated the mixed emotions of selling a much loved family Bach!

Sue and Gary Lowe

Our agent, Mark Leaver handled the sale of our 94 year old mother's property in Grey Street, Onehunga. It was a difficult and emotional sale as she had lived there for over 60 years.
The sale was targeted to a specific market and each step involved the agreement of all close family members. Mark steered his way through these complications with flying colours, showing professionalism, attention to detail and personal presentation. He kept us up to date with the market, the progress of the sale and took a keen interest in our mother's well-being. His knowledge, humour and good nature made dealing with him a pleasure.
We can't recommend him highly enough.

Adrienne Wilson

The quickness of the sale and delightful outcome surprised us all. We wish to thank Mark for his diligence, helpfulness and professionalism.
Our sincere thanks to Mark for all his hard work

We would like to point out that we found Mark Leaver to be extremely proactive and professional in all his efforts to market and sell our home.

Again Thank you.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Barfoot and Thompson for an excellent job of marketing and selling our home at 38 Laburnum Road New Windsor.
I would like to single out Mark Leaver for his advice, dedication and caring attitude during our traumatic month dealing with the sale of our home while we were still living in it. Mark made it a cake walk. I don't have the words to express how grateful we are to Mark for his sound advice and Real Estate Knowledge to know how far to push for the best result again thank you, Regards.

IT has been a delight to have Mark Leaver in charge of selling my property in Onehunga. Nothing was left to chance, nothing was too much trouble, and as the owner I was astounded at how easy it was for me.
From my first enquiry to Barfoot and Thompson, to a successful outcome at the auction, wow a period of less than a month
I found Mark to be very charming and highly professional.My sincere thanks to Mark and the whole team at Barfoot and Thompson for a job well done. Regards.
