“Improving lives through real estate”
It’s really quite simple! I’m a hardworking, enthusiastic, honest, trustworthy, straight-up kind of guy!
With a background in retail and business, I’ve run multiple companies starting them from the ground up. These life experiences have given me the skills I need to take your real estate experience to the next level.
I am a people person who loves solving problems. My customised, tailored solutions are process driven to ensure great results every time.
I like to go the extra mile to make things easy for people. I have helped paint houses, clear rubbish, lay flooring, weeded the garden, washed windows, fed the cat, the list is endless! You can rest assured knowing I will always work hard for you to get the best result every time.
I pride myself on being an excellent communicator/negotiator who keeps you ahead of the game, whilst in the background I’m turning over every stone to ensure nothing gets missed.
Outside this role, I have a lovely wife and three children and live in the country. At home I’m in shorts and gumboots helping on the farm, drenching sheep, mustering cattle, feeding lambs, again, the list is endless.
Off the farm, you can find me out in the ocean, kite surfing, paddle-boarding or even hydro-foiling. I’m a very active person which helps keep my mind fresh and alert ready for its next new challenge.
So why not drop me a line and let me start improving your life, through real estate!
Nik was fantastic when we decided to sell our house, explaining the entire process and answering the many questions I had, nothing was an issue. Reminding us of all the upcoming open homes, or important dates after the sale and purchase agreement was signed and letting us know anything else that was important, so we didn’t overlook anything.
The marketing of the property was superb! We were blown away with the photos and the collateral that he created. I’m 100% convinced that this helped to get potential buyers to the open homes and was very instrumental in the quick sale after the buyer visited on the very first open home!
We were very impressed by Nik's professionalism and knowledge Nik. He’s a great asset to Barfoot & Thompson and we cannot recommend him highly enough. So if you are thinking of selling your home, he will do an excellent job for you.Carolyn
I would like to express my gratitude to Nik Sams. Even though I was the purchaser, he did an incredible job every step of the way during the negotiations with his vendor, to ensure a successful outcome for both parties. I would recommend him in the future to anybody thinking of selling or buying a home. Thanks again Nik & thanks for the gift basket.Phil
"We chose Nik Sams to sell our Whangaparaoa home for his transparency. Also, he uses technology to make the process seamless, from the lockbox used, the floorplans generated and online marketing campaign, to electronic communication and documents. All of this contributed to making the process as stress-free as possible and we were well-informed and could even action offers when out of town. As it was our first home we were selling, the support Nik gave us was much appreciated. He gave us the facts, shared his experience, and let us make our decisions. Though there was uncertainty with interest rate rises, fear of overpaying as the peak of the market was behind us, and the cost of living increasing, Nik achieved a great result for us. Thanks, Nik, for the successful sale of our home."
Thanks again. As sad as it was to say goodbye to our first home, it's great to have the sale behind us.Yvonne
My wife and I needed a change and decided to move to Australia. It was a huge step and one of the biggest undertakings was selling our house. In the changing market it was going to be different and as we were selling our first home, we were entering uncharted territory.
Nik made the process seem so easy. He was always willing to help in any aspect of our move. The current housing market was tough at the time but in the end, Nik got the sale through and we are forever grateful for that.
He was utterly professional throughout and I would have no hesitation in recommending Nik to sell anyone’s home.Jamie & Charmaine
I am writing this to express my thanks to Nik Sams, real estate salesperson with Barfoot & Thompson Whangaparaoa.
I was recommended to Nik by another resident of Whangaparaoa; Nik was their salesperson for a house purchase. I met Nik, along with salespeople from two other real estate companies in the area. From the outset, Nik impressed me with his exceptional depth of knowledge about the local market, and in particular his wish to make the sale of my property as smooth as possible.
Nik went above and beyond to support me with my house sale, even looking after my two horses whilst I moved. I felt confident and safe with giving Nik the keys to my home when I put the property up for sale and moved to the South Island. Nik checked the house regularly, airing the house and making sure it was in good shape for the open homes.
I believe that due to his skill and expertise my property sold very quickly and for a very good price. After the sale Nik continued to check my property, and even helped us with moving.
I have sold and bought a number of properties over the years and can say without question that Nik has been the best salesperson I have ever used. The difference being that Nik was true to his word, he gave me an honest appraisal of the value of my home, and held good to his promise to look after my house while I moved away. I certainly would not leave my home and horses with anyone, so it is testament to the integrity of Nik that I entrusted him with my most valuable possessions.
In conclusion, I can happily and confidently recommend Nik and wish to express my gratitude for his great help and professional services in the successful sale of my property.Rosalind Sotomayor-Sugden
My partner Glenn Millard and I purchased a property in Stillwater Crescent from Nik Sams. It was a bit of an ordeal as we hadn’t sold our place when we first saw this property and as you are probably aware the banking system is very slow these days. In addition, the property had had some work done that wasn’t consented so all in all, not a simple transaction.
However, throughout the entire process Nik was amazing. He was patient and so helpful. I felt I was on the phone to him constantly asking questions and he always was there to help and never appeared fed up with me. He made the whole process a lot easier than it could have been.
If the time ever comes that we decide to move again I will hope that Nik is around to sell our property he is just simply the best!
You guys are very lucky to have such a professional but friendly salesperson. Love his work!Kimberly Walsh & Glenn Millard
I cannot believe the absolutely fantastic job that Nik has done for me. I am sure that without Nik's expertise, I would never have got the brilliant results that were achieved.
I have no hesitation in recommending his services to anyone who wishes to sell their property.Colin Smith
We met Nik at one of his open homes when we first made the decision to downsize and start looking at smaller properties. We hadn’t put our house on the market and were unsure what was involved, or when we might be ready.
Nik came to our home and did an appraisal and had a very informal conversation with us about our options. We felt very relaxed with Nik and after a night to sleep on it, we decided to jump in boots and all and list our property with Nik.
He explained everything properly, kept us well informed with excellent communication and detailed feedback after every open home, and in hindsight, did everything he said he would. We were going through some personal family health issues at the time and Nik went above and beyond, available at every opportunity to assist us, nothing was ever a problem.
We were very clear with Nik about where we needed to be to move on and he got us the dollar amount we wanted to do so.
We would highly recommend Nik to anyone.Paul & Maggie
I'm writing to you to let you know how thrilled my husband and I were with the recent sale of our property with Barfoot & Thompson. Nik Sams made the sale of our property painless. He was very professional and very confident throughout the process. This confidence allowed us to be relaxed and trust in his abilities.
Nik went above-and-beyond to help make us feel at ease and nothing was ever too much trouble. He quickly became more of a friend and made everything seem easy.
We highly recommend Nik to anyone wanting to sell their property and would definitely use his services again.Brenda & Paul
"Over the years we have dealt with many real estate salespeople. We found that Debbie and Nik were by far superior. They are very organised, professional and hardworking. An absolute pleasure to deal with. We could not have asked for any better.
We recommend them to anyone who wishes to sell their property."Hank & Ria
Good morning Mark. I just wanted to share a note with you regarding my recent experience with Barfoot & Thompson.
I have been a client a number of times with Barfoot & Thompson over the past 16 years. At the beginning of the year I listed my property in Bayswater with Barfoot & Thompson in Takapuna via Cathy Fiebig, who I have bought and sold a number of times and every time achieving objectives that I outlined in meetings before listing. As I knew I would be looking to purchase on the Hibiscus Coast, I asked Cathy if she had a contact here and she organised for Nik Sams to give me a call.
I have to say, having bought and sold many times in the past 20 years, that the experience with Nik may well be the best one I have ever had. The guy seriously goes out of his way to get a result and shows extraordinary patience and professionalism (especially given my ever-changing mind) as I was looking for the right house. He was always available, a great organiser given I had limited opps to get to the coast for viewings, so needed to cover as much ground as possible when I could get here. Most importantly, he always made sure I had the right info and status of houses, but never hassled and allowed me the time to digest each opportunity before ultimately making an important decision that ticked all the boxes and indeed some boxes that I didn’t even know I had to tick.
Seriously great service and a great salesperson which I am sure you already know.
We really appreciated Nik Sams professionalism and personal attention to a situation, which could have been tricky if not handled well. Highly recommend Nik.J & M Coxhead
We just wanted to write to thank you, for the exceptional service you provided during the sale of our property in Stanmore Bay.
We are so glad that we chose Debbie and Nik for the sale of our property and could not recommend them enough. The service provided was exceptional, from the moment we engaged with them, throughout the process and after the sale.
Debbie and Nik were always professional, friendly, polite, approachable and have a great work ethic. The communication was excellent. They were mindful and respectful with viewing appointments and always set us at ease. Debbie and Nik are top people, with a great sense of fun, who made the experience stress free! With the added bonus of selling under the hammer for a great price, we highly recommend Debbie and Nik for anyone wanting to sell their property.K & M Williams
