We engaged the professional services of Nick Penton in the beginning May 2019, to sell a property for us in Warkworth, after an unsuccessful campaign with another real estate company.
Upon meeting with Nick, we immediately noticed a completely different approach both professionally and enthusiastically. Nick came up with a strategy to bring out the best in our property, including different ideas to get the best advertising possible to reach maximum, potential buyers.
Nick's experience stood out straight away, saving us money on outdated advertising idea. We were able to put more budgeted money into presenting the property at its best. Every aspect of the campaign was professional and methodically prepared, so at the day of the launch we knew we had given it our best shot.
The first day on the market we had a good offer and Nick was able to negotiate it up to an even better offer. Nick's great follow-up expertise meant the sale became unconditional a week later.

Nick went above and beyond for us. We were in a situation where we needed to sell in a short time-frame as we were moving overseas, and Nick ensured we had loads of people through the house, and kept us up to date with progress every step of the way. He was a huge support on the auction day, and we ended up getting a great price, and wrapping it all up in the time we required. Nick was very approachable, always easy to contact, and even helped us with styling our house for the open home. Highly recommend using Nick. Alicia and Laine Cameron
Nick's professional manner was apparent at our first meeting. Throughout the time it took to sell my late mother's home, he was always available to discuss open home viewings details and to reinforce positive marketing strategies especially when the real estate market slowed down. I have dealt with a number of real estate agents over the years and Nick is easily the most organised, focused and approachable agent I have dealt with. I will not hesitate to recommend him to family and friends. Cynthia Greenbrook
Nick is a very conscientious and trustworthy person with outstanding customer focus. During the time I have known Nick he has always been very upfront and personable in all our dealings. I would personally recommend Nick in any role that involves people contact and getting the job done. I wish him well for his future endeavours.Jackie B.
We dealt with Nick for the sale of our mother's estate at Green Road, Matakana and were very impressed with his services as a real estate agent. Nick was extremely efficient and assertive and we were very happy
with the results he achieved for us. We would highly recommend Nick to get you a sale and at top dollar.Fin & Sue O'Reilly
Nick is a very conscientious and trustworthy person with outstanding customer focus. During the time, we attempted at selling our property with another agent and we decided to try a private sale, that didn't go very well either. We met Nick at an open home and after taking to him we decided to list with Barfoot & Thompson and have Nick as our agent. He made the process so easy for us and what we loved about Barfoot & Thompson is that they work as a team. We expected honest feedback and good communication and Nick was great with that, he was onto it with advertising and open homes and always stayed positive. The best thing about working with Nick was that he was easy to talk to and we felt like we could always call him and ask questions and he never made us feel like we were a nuisance. We really appreciated his honestly and openness through the whole process. We highly recommend Nick and will definitely go back to him for our future house sales!" Christelle and Mike Hynd
Nick Penton was recommended so to us by a good friend so we gave him a chance to sell for us. Initially he suggested what we should do to market and advertise the property to the market, setting up the house and property for open homes etc. All went very well to sale with no problems encountered at all. Nick was very helpful throughout the whole process, making us feel comfortable every step of the way with his hands-on approach and great communication skills with all parties involved. As Nick was recommended by our good friend, we wouldn't hesitate to do the same should the situation arise" Harry Reader and Sue Nash
Nick was amazing at keeping us up to date on the status of the property he was selling for us. He let us know both the good and the bad in terms of buyers and managed our expectations with expertise. We always felt we were fully informed and confident the right guy was on the job. Eric Rowe and Barbara Joppa
