My working-life in agri-business, hospitality, tourism and supply chain management provided great experience working with people from many different communities.
I made the jump to the property industry in 2017, when I joined Barfoot & Thompson. Since then, working in different areas of the real estate industry, I believe, has provided valuable experience, not just with knowledge gained but with the ability to establish strong relationships with clients.
My dedication to the company and my clients is always my first priority. Whatever my role, I embrace it with enthusiasm and hard work. This attitude paid off when I was recognised as a Top 5 Letting Agent whilst working at the award-winning Papatoetoe branch in 2018. My promotion to the Stonefields branch as Property Manager yielded similar results from both customer service and revenue perspectives, in 2019 and 2020.
The decision to move to residential sales in my local area is the logical next step for me. It’s a fantastic opportunity and I’m excited to be selling in Auckland’s Central and Eastern suburbs where I was born and bred. It’s great to be back and serving the local community that I was fortunate enough to grow up in.
I am a proud member of the local YMCA marathon runners club, an avid skier and I have a general love of the outdoors, whether at home or abroad.
With Barfoot & Thompson supporting me through market-leading technologies and unmatched industry experience, I bring two additional supporting pillars to round out my service: communication and trust.
Whether you’re a long-time investor, a first-home buyer, or you simply want to have a chat about buying or selling real estate, give me a call. I’m here to listen, I’m here to advise, and I’m here to help.

I wholeheartedly recommend Matt Thompson if you are seeking to sell your property. Matt was instrumental in helping us as buyers secure our latest home. He was easy to reach, accommodating in showing us the property on multiple occasions and extremely knowledgeable about the property, local area and recent sales information.
Matt is a strong communicator and extremely pleasant to deal with. There were some challenges with our negotiations with the vendors, however, Matt’s outstanding negotiating and sales skills helped to bring both parties back on track to achieve a great result for both vendor and purchaser.
As finance professionals and property owners and investors, we engage regularly with real estate salespeople. Matt stands out from the crowd with his local knowledge, sales and marketing skills, strong negotiating ability, and tenacity to get the deal done - all while remaining personable and being a great person to deal with.Shane & Pia Best
We were looking for a house for our son when we met Matt Thompson, who showed us a number of houses until we finally found the one that met most of our son’s criteria. We found Matt enthusiastic and really good to deal with - nothing was too much trouble for him to do for us. He listened to what we were looking for, gave us honest, helpful advice, and did what he said he would do. We would highly recommend Matt to anyone looking to buy or sell a house.John & Pam Isaac
I just wanted to pass on some feedback around the selling of my property at auction this past Wednesday. I have thoroughly enjoyed working with Matt & Paul since I first contacted them back in September. Right from our first meeting, we were all clearly on the same page with what we needed to do to successfully market and sell my apartment. I had previously bought and sold a property approximately five years ago and I am happy to say that this experience was nothing like that! I felt completely in control and yet knew that they were both there with me the whole way, guiding me through the process. They always listened to my views and we agreed together on what the best way forward was. This resulted in a completely stress-free process for me – how many people can say that about selling a much-loved property?! By the time I got to the auction, all I felt was excitement. And the auction went exactly the way we hoped it would, there were no nasty surprises and we achieved the realistic price that we all agreed on.
Thank you very much for helping me through a process that can be highly stressful, but which was instead a completely enjoyable time with lots of laughs along the way! I am happy to say that I have told many friends about working with both of you and would be happy to pass on your details to anyone that needs to buy or sell a property.Rachael B
Matt was extremely effective in supporting me through the sale of a property through difficult personal circumstances. His ability to navigate through the challenges that presented that were unique to selling our home, as well as his ability to connect with potential buyers, was extremely effective in achieving a very pleasing result. Matt will most certainly be my first call when I decide to sell my next home.Paul B
Matt & Gurpreet were fantastic to deal with before, during, and after the sale of my property. Their communication, advice, professionalism, and work ethic were outstanding, and I would not hesitate to use them again. Thanks Matt & Gurpreet!Gratton M
Matt assisted us in the purchase of Masters Place in Waiuku. His communication was superb from beginning to end, and at no stage, were we left wondering what was going on. I would not hesitate to use him again for the sale or purchase of another property.Calvin Yates
Barfoot & Thompson Stonefields gives due attention to our requests related to properties. Our properties are managed exceptionally well and includes maintenance, answering our tenants queries, maintenance quotes and managing tradespeople. They select right tenants and right rent and carry out regular inspection and rent reviews. Thanks to Barfoot & Thompson Stonefields branch Auckland.Devendra Pisolkar
All the staff have been a pleasure to deal with, especially Matt Thompson. Matt's professionalism is unquestionable and his consideration of my personal situation has always been taking into consideration when making decisions/recommendations for my investment property. HE is the reason I'm still with Barfoot & Thompson.Kim
My partner and I had the pleasure of engaging Matt Thompson of Barfoot & Thompson Papatoetoe to advertise and select tenants for our property in Sandwick Drive, Weymouth, Auckland in July 2018. Matt was highly motivated, professional and enthusiastic from the outset. We were impressed by his knowledge, responsiveness and helpfulness and he was able to secure excellent tenants for the property within three days. Matt made the whole process extremely seamless and enjoyable. We will strongly recommend Matt Thompson to our friends, family and clients. We are looking forward to building a long-term working relationship with Matt and his team at Barfoot's Papatoetoe.
Thanks and regards
Thank you so much for your assistance and patience whilst we were assisting our son and his wife recently to find a rental property.
We appreciated that you were available to speak with us and offered to show us a selection of properties at sometimes extremely short notice.
Your level of professionalism and willingness to meet the challenges that we presented was fabulous and by far outweighed any other company or representative that we came across.
We would be very happy to recommend you personally and also the rest of your team that I had the pleasure of meeting, to anyone looking for a rental property in our area.
It's Scott Lewis here from NOW Leven Lane.
I just wanted to say a massive thank you for all your help with securing the Leven Lane property for us. Myself and my family really do appreciate all the effort and time you put in to securing this for us. And even under some difficult circumstances you still managed to bag the property for us. I will be definitely recommending Barfoot & Thompson and particularly you to others.
Thanks again and all the best for the future Matt.
