About Neil Sharpe

I love the feeling when a property chooses its owner. If a connection is made and it’s love at first sight, then it was meant to be and often a ‘marriage’ will take place. My role in finding a long-term partner for a property gives me a feeling of great satisfaction when the resulting ‘engagement’ ends in ‘matrimony’. As the matchmaker, it is important that I establish a bond of trust so I can help the buyers and vendors transition from one love of their life to the next, in a stress-free way.

I knew that when I made the decision to enter into the real estate industry, that I wanted to work with a company that had the reputation and resources to support me and my clients into achieving outcomes that are always above expectations. Barfoot & Thompson is committed to developing, enhancing and investing in new cutting-edge tools for their staff. This forward-thinking approach leads to increased productivity and a sense of pride from employees as they feel empowered to easily deliver outstanding client service.

Prior to real estate, I had careers in the NZ Police and the NZ Fire Service. I then moved into the security industry where I eventually started my own very successful security company designing, specifying and installing technically advanced security and surveillance systems for large commercial and high-end residential clients. These were all vocations which fostered an enormous degree of trust between the parties. I am proud to say I was recognised by the police commissioner for diligent work in the 70's. In the equestrian field, I have been a national 3Day Event championship title holder and Advanced eventing circuit winner on several occasions in the 90's and early 2000's. I was also selected to represent NZ in 1994 in Australia.

Along with my fire engineering qualifications, I am also a qualified Equestrian coach. My wife and I were both competitive dressage and event riders so moving to a lifestyle block in Waiau Pa over 20 years ago was a natural fit. I love Franklin and especially this area which encompasses Waiau Pa, Clarks Beach, Glenbrook, Kingseat and Karaka West. The people here are friendly and welcoming, there is a great community spirit, the Waiau Pa School has a fabulous reputation and Clarks Beach takeaways has the best fish and chips in Auckland. I am privileged to be able to work and play in the place I call home.

Now I enjoy road cycling. It’s a bit of quiet time for me and it’s great for fitness. My wife and I love to get away in our motor-home with our two wee border terriers but most of all I love being at home with family and working around the property. There’s always something to do on a small block! Creative woodwork in my workshop is a rare treat!

I have always enjoyed helping others. In my previous careers, people trusted me with their lives, the lives of others and their property. In many ways, real estate is very similar. I am being entrusted to help my clients achieve their real estate dream.

Call or email me at Barfoot & Thompson Pukekohe. I will always work hard to turn your dreams into realty.

What my clients say

We listed our rural property with Neil and Craig during particularly uncertain times of the Covid19 pandemic. Both salespeople were great but we dealt predominantly with Neil. The level of professionalism, honesty and unbiased advice we received was incredible, especially given the stressful and ever changing climate we were going through.

We always felt as though our best interests were at heart and never felt under pressure. We were incredibly grateful to eventually reach our desired outcome, which ended up a bit of a roller coaster ride due to the nature of the pandemic response and it's implications for our situation.

We would especially like to thank Neil for his unwavering patience and support. We would not hesitate to use them again and recommend them highly.

Craig and Neil were Awesome!

To us, it was a ‘no-brainer’ to employ the services of Craig and Neil to help sell our home. They are local, have been working and living with lifestyle and rural properties for quite a number of years, and their knowledge of this, our area, and the Franklin district in general, is confidence inspiring.

Their diligence, professionalism and enthusiasm are second-to-none and they went above-and-beyond our expectations throughout the entire sale process, providing us with sound advice at each and every stage of the campaign.

Their knowledge and calm mature manner, inspired us with total confidence that they would always be working to provide the best possible outcome for us. How right we were. We were absolutely thrilled with the results achieved in a particularly challenging market and would highly recommend Craig and Neil to anyone who is seeking genuine, hardworking, and successful salespeople. They really are that good!

Natalie & Trewren

‘Neil has been working for several months trying to find the right home for us and we could not be happier with the effort and time he has given us to achieve this. He has travelled many hundreds of kms on our behalf and taken time to be with us and help us in all aspects of our purchase. Even to the extent of helping get the letterbox repaired when damaged by the vendor's removal truck, getting our WIFI connected when we moved in and taking time to help us go through the operational aspects of the very modern new home.

Neil was always available for us whenever we rang to ask questions or wanted to meet with him. He was knowledgeable, thoughtful, caring for our needs, and a genuinely nice person and we would have no hesitation in highly recommending him to anyone wanting to buy or sell a home in Franklin or anywhere else.

He is the kind of real estate salesperson we all hope to work with - but rarely find.’

Diane & Roger Fenwick

‘Neil was amazing to work with on the recent purchase of our home in Paerata. He truly went above-and-beyond, meeting us at all hours and in all locations to get the deal signed quickly and effortlessly. He was very professional and assisted us even after the sale, to obtain the necessary paperwork and documentation we required in relation to the history of the home.

Thank you so much Neil. We will definitely be recommending you to our family and friends. It is hard to find good salespeople who are prepared to go the extra mile – we certainly found that in you!’

Hayley Peterson – Buyer, Paerata Road, Paerata

Selling your home can be an emotional rollercoaster, especially with the stresses of Covid. Neil was very understanding and patient when dealing with the sale of our home. He made sure that we understood each step of the process, was more than willing to revise details with us, and gave us time when making decisions.

Neil's punctuality was impressive. He was always on time, arriving exactly when he said he would. He was quick to answer or return calls and, literally, went the extra mile to get our deal signed, sealed and delivered.

Therese & Perrin Madsen

When I first thought about selling my rural property of 30 years and moving into a retirement village nearer my family in Auckland, I was quite worried about the process and stress of doing it all. That was until I met Craig and Neil. They came out to meet me and took the time to go through the whole process with me so I could more easily understand what was involved, and immediately made me feel that they were the team I could trust to do the job for me, and leave it in their very capable hands.

Once I had made my mind up to list my home, they were both very attentive to my wishes, even to the point of Neil driving from Waiuku over to the North Shore to get my brother to sight and co-sign the documents.

They were both wonderful to me and certainly made selling my home as easy as it could be. They were very knowledgeable, honest, and up-front, and I was kept informed every step of the way. If I ever had any queries or thought about something I wanted to ask, there was always one of them available to talk me through my concerns.

They were so helpful throughout the marketing campaign and afterwards, (Neil even repaired the handle on my frypan which had fallen off one morning shortly before they arrived!) I can’t recommend them highly enough to anyone wishing to sell their property.
