"Real estate is not just a job, but a way of life."
"I needed to sell my house to be able to embark on my third age. I didn’t look for a real estate salesperson - he found me one sunny Sunday.
This marketing dynamo persuaded me he was the man for the job. I didn’t feel pressured at any stage in the process. There was advice about how to best present my much-loved home. This advice proved to be the difference between sitting in the market for months or selling within four weeks.
Narender met with me and my family to advise us to do the eye-catching improvements. It took a long time to complete all the changes we felt were necessary. Every weekend was spent working on the house. Narender often popped in to test the progress. He grew to be an extension of my family, such was his encouragement and input.
Then it went on the market! There were photographs which were beautiful. Narender reported regularly both verbally and through an extensive weekly report. I knew exactly what was happening. He advised who was interested in the property, who had visited more than once, who had brought a builder to check the property. The publicity was professional and explicit.
Narender had advised going to auction. Friday morning after three open homes, we were in the hands of the auctioneer. Heart in the mouth stuff. Then it was sold. My house was no longer mine.
Narender was with us all the way. Never intrusive, always polite, and endlessly encouraging us. I thank him for wandering down my drive all those months ago. I couldn’t have wished for a better salesperson. Narender is a gem!"Shayne Quigley - July 2022
"Narender was extremely professional with his advice and expertise. The property was a deceased estate that had fallen into significant disrepair - not an easy sell in a down turning market.
When the first deal looked like it might not go ahead, he was busy working on a backup working his contacts. He kept us informed at every step of the process. Narender has proven himself to be a hardworking salesperson who really looks out for his vendors. We would have no hesitation in recommending him or selling with him again in the future."Amanda Gonthier, Jordan & Reuben Chiswell
"Narender is hard working, fun and has a never give up attitude. Not on clients or on customers."Morton Kennedy Family Trust
We recently enlisted the services of Narender to sell our property in Te Atatu. Right from the first meeting, he came across as having a high level of integrity, was well informed on our property, the area and current market conditions and at no point gave us an over inflated expectation to gain our business. The sale was by way of Auction during Level 3 Lock and even by remote kept us well informed of the marketing results leading up to auction day. On setting the reserve, at no time did he try and influence our thoughts and final decision. Final result the property sold at Auction and reached our expectations. I would have no hesitation in recommending Narender to anyone looking to sell or buy a home, they will be well looked after.Brian Howe & Graeme Howe
We sold a house on Taikata Road for a price I never thought possible. Our salesperson was Narender Kumar. I have now bought and sold several properties through your company and have been happy to do so. No salesperson has quite been like Narender. He first came to see me when I made an online inquiry of the branch. I found him to be friendly, focused and obviously very professional. However, as the process has gone on, my opinion of him has grown. Narender has the ability to make you think that you are the only person he is interested in. He has worked tirelessly on our behalf throughout and his communication, encouragement and allaying of fears has been second to none. I cannot adequately express how grateful we are to him for all he has done. I know this is his job and he has done it for years but nonetheless he is very, very good at it and has the people skills necessary to be so successful.Mark Forsyth - As executor of the estate
I write this in reference to the above real estate salesperson Narender Kumar, offering the highest praise for his professionalism, expertise, integrity, trust, drive and politeness at all times. A gentleman and above all, a solid person who says when he will do something, he sees to it that it is done.
Narender’s performance with the sale of Mr Redfern’s property on Te Atatu Road, Te Atatu South was exemplary. His advice to us when preparing the property for sale without over-capitalising was very sound, along with the solid marketing plan that followed, thus ensuring Mr Redfern the very best outcome. The sale price of the property which exceeded our expectations, serves as testimony to this.
We all wish to thank you Narender for your professional and maximum effort in this regard. We certainly will recommend your services to other people, friends and family if and when the need arises.
"Mike and I are property investors and we have bought and sold a number of properties over the years. We've known Narender for a while as he is a local, friendly, honest, professional and experienced real estate operator in the area. He approached us prospecting for business and even though we did not want to go on the open market due to long-term tenants, we advised him we will sell if the price is right. In just a short time, Narender built a relationship with the tenants and sold the property at a very satisfactory price and with the least inconvenience to tenants.
We are impressed with Narender's social and real estate skills and highly recommend him if you are considering selling your most valuable asset."Coral Wong & Mike Ford
Narender was highly recommended by my son whose house he sold a few years back, so I engaged him to sell my house as well. I found him to be highly efficient in his dealings and very transparent with the sales and marketing process. He kept me up-to-date with the current market in the area and communicated frequently throughout. I am happy to say that I got the desired price for my house within the expected timeframe. I would highly recommend Narender to anyone wishing to sell their house.P C Gaur
“Firstly, Narender provided advice on development possibilities for our property. In this area we found him to be surprisingly knowledgeable.
We then decided to sell and consider ourselves fortunate to have had Narender acting on our behalf. He did an excellent job marketing the house, and as it was tenanted, fostered a good relationship with the tenants and ensured they were not disturbed unnecessarily. He is a great communicator and we were kept updated regularly throughout the process.
His efforts leading up to the sale, and on the auction day itself, ensured that we got a very good price, surpassing our expectations. We achieved 50% above CV, and doubt that we would have achieved this if Narender hadn’t been involved.
The whole process was easy and we would like to work with Narender in the future."Sue and Jack McClelland
Dear Prospective Homeowners. It is our immense pleasure to recommend Narender Kumar as a real estate agent for any individual or family searching for the ideal home for their unique situation. We were selling our mother's home which was located in Te Atatu Peninsula and approached Barfoot & Thomson Real Estate, as they had a strong presence in the area and compared to other organisations, were a logical choice.
I walked into the office and met Narender who was smartly dressed, made time to sit with us in a friendly, stress free initial meeting which was not rushed. He took diligent notes regarding our mother's property and discussed both our expectations and provided up to date market knowledge for the area. He is highly talented in the auction process and in dealing with other realtors, he even organised staging and open homes to suit our needs. Although our home did not sell at auction, he remained positive and upbeat and developed a new strategy and at all times conveyed information on progress with accurate updates on potential buyers needs.
A master with the contract negotiations, Narender worked closely with realtors and engineered a deal that was good for us and made the purchaser happy as well. Throughout this home selling process, he knew the market like the back of his hand and Narender's attention to detail is second to none.
We found Narender to be a highly attentive agent, almost as if we were his only customers, although we knew that was not the case. He returned all phone calls and emails the same day. We never felt neglected or unimportant. He is also highly personable with an engaging personality. Narender was honest about some minor changes that we needed to make in our mother's home to attract buyers quickly, and his advice worked like a charm.
We are pleased to recommend Narender Kumar to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. He is hands down the best in the business in our opinion and if we ever need to sell or buy again he will be our first choice in real estate agents.
An absolute gentleman and professional from the start. From first impressions, Narender immediately showed us he was more than qualified for the job and instantly made us feel like we had the right man!
Throughout our campaign Narender was excellent with all communications and very transparent about the industry regulations, what our obligations were and what to expect on auction day.
The marketing collateral, advertisements and online advertising were fantastic, our home was presented beautifully in all of the media produced.
With neither of us having had the experience of an auction before, when it came to auction day we were all quietly nervous, excited and anxious about what to expect, but Narender, the consummate professional along with the Barfoot & Thompson staff made us feel very welcome in the Barfoot & Thompson auction headquarters.
With Narender's hard work on the campaign, following up with bidders and potential buyers, we are happy to say we sold our property at Glen Norman Avenue in Henderson, Auckland at auction under the hammer! It was an amazing emotional experience, a day that we will forever remember.
We would highly recommend Narender to anyone looking to purchase or sell property, as he certainly has shown that he stands out from the rest.
Thank you for helping us find the perfect home! We enjoyed searching for houses with you and appreciate that you took us to so many as seeing the houses in person helped us make our decision. We will be referring you to our friends because of your excellent service.Rufino & Bernalyn Ganzan
We would like to thank you for your professional and exceptional service during the sale of our property. You gave us sound advice not just about selling but about buying a property too. You had a sound knowledge of the changing market hence we were able to change strategy of sale. We are very happy that you represented us and would recommend you to anyone looking to sell their home.
Thank you so much!
On behalf of Esha and I, we would like to thank you dearly for helping us achieve our goal of buying our new family home - Royal View Road, Te Atatu South. The home itself is very beautiful and we are loving it. We were very impressed with your excellent customer service throughout the process, from open homes to post settlement. You had an eye for detail and would cover things that we missed out (despite the fact that we've bought and owned several properties). We faced challenges especially during the auction and bidding process especially when we were overseas but you made it so immaculate for us.
No doubt our paths will certainly cross in future for any property related matters. Once again Thank You :)
This is to say a BIG THANK YOU !! to Narendra Kumar of Barfoot & Thompson Te Atatu, who has helped us buy our investment property in Te Atatu Peninsula recently. Working with Narender has been a pleasure as he is highly professional, extremely diligent, articulate and at all times demonstrated empathy. As a customer I was looking for sage advice and all information pertaining to the property which Narender provided in a very prompt manner. What was clear during the entire process was Narender staying with us and supporting us make the decision, he was very quick at addressing our concerns which affirmed our confidence in him which eventually lead us to buy the property which we are very proud of. I must admit making this decision was not easy, however having the right guidance and making the entire process work seamlessly by Narender helped us take this bold step. I have in my life time have met many Real Estate Agents who have not left any lasting impressions except Narender.
I highly recommend Narender to anybody who is considering buying a house, he brings to the table a huge amount of empathy which compliments his years of legendary experience in the property market. I feel our relationship has now cemented further although we know Narender for almost 10 years. I am happy to say that I would be recommending him to my family and friends when they are ready.
Thanks again from the bottom of our heart, you made a very difficult decision super easy.Rehmabai Sidharth
"My daughter sold her home through the Narender Kumar at Barfoot & Thompson Te Atatu a few years ago, she was very quick to recommend him to me when my house came up for sale January 2017. I was very happy to follow through on her recommendation as I was getting quite confused and frustrated with a bombardment of sales pitches from various other real estate companies. However my anxieties fell away after meeting with Narender. He patiently and carefully explained to me what to expect from him and his company, was never pushy and kept me informed almost daily as to progress. I was also involved in decision making and never pressured just to complete a sale. My house was under contract within 4 weeks of marketing.
Narender is a lovely family man and fully dedicated to his work and clients. He will be my first choice if I ever need real estate services in the future".
"We are extremely pleased with the way Narender has marketed our home of 55 years. He turned what could have been a stressful experience into a pleasant one, and has been courteous and respectful at all times. Hard working and committed to obtaining the best price for us. We could not have wished for anyone better to handle the sale of our property."Brian & Joy Craig (29 Taikata Rd, Te Atatu Peninsula)
"Narender Kumar has been outstanding. I could not have asked for better service than i received from him. At all times he worked with my best interest as top priority. He was always very professional, courteous, honest and reliable. Selling properties can at times be stressful, but Narender took all the stress away. I would use Narender again and recommend him to everyone who is looking for good, honest real estate real estate person."Sandra Howley (5 Roby St, Te Atatu Peninsula also 111 Royal Rd, Massey)
"As a new home buyer, I found Narender to be very helpful in guiding me through the steps involved in the successful purchase of the property. He acted at all times with integrity and was a pleasure to work with. Any requests for information were followed up in a prompt and efficient manner."Elena Izaguirre (3 Temuri Place, Glendene)
"He was very thorough in explained advertising, presentation and legal side of the sale process. Because of all his good work we achieved a satisfactory price and were sold in four weeks. We were very impressed with his after sales service."Tony & Dawn Rundle (58 Taikata Rd, Te Atatu Peninsula)
" I wish to commend the effort and professionalism that Narender has employed on my behalf in attending to the sale of my two properties on Te Atatu Peninsula. Both properties presented various challenges owing to their age and condition. Narender went above and beyond what I would consider to be the normal service in ensuring the properties were presented to the market in the most favorable light. After experiencing his dedication to the process I have no hesitation in recommending Narender to any potential sellers."Brian Currie
"What particularly impressed me was that [Narender] was always focused on the fact that he was acting for the vendor and thus attempting to get the best possible price and did not put pressure on me to drop down to what offers were from time to time put in. He showed at all time both integrity and courtesy."Brian Gubb
