Mark van Lent started his career in real estate in 1988 and since then has gained extensive experience in all aspects of the industry from residential and commercial to rural lifestyle; from marketing and negotiating to training and managing.
In 1994, Mark completed the full study qualifications necessary to become an Associate Member of the Real Estate Institute (AREINZ). As well as being a former co-owner and director of an Auckland real estate company, he has also owned and managed a residential building company, and a sales and management training business.
Mark is known for his no-pressure and professional approach, and brings valuable experience in all forms of real estate marketing, including auction, tender, and set-price promotions, as well as special project and subdivision marketing. He takes particular pride in using his well-practised negotiating skills to good effect on behalf of his many clients, both residential and corporate.
With four adult children, and 5 grandchildren, Mark enjoys a busy and full family life, and during his spare time indulges his interest in jazz music playing bass guitar in a 16-piece big band.
As manager of Barfoot & Thompson branches at West Harbour and Hobsonville, Mark is proud to lead a combined team of dedicated and highly successful sales professionals with extensive knowledge of all areas west and north-west of Auckland, both residential and rural-lifestyle.
He and his team would be delighted to share their real estate knowledge and experience with you in order to help you achieve your goals. Please don't hesitate to call any time.
