About Nick Bates
Branch Manager of the Year, to end March 2019
A small business owner/operator for many years, I bring a wealth of technology, business knowledge and customer service experience to real estate.
As a salesperson I was a top performer with Barfoot & Thompson being in the top 25 salespeople overall from 2008 to 2011.
In 2012, moving into management was a natural step for me. I continually seek new challenges and opportunities to grow as a person and to bring my strengths to the benefit of others.
Pukekohe, Tuakau and Pokeno branches work together closely under my management. It is a large team comprising: - 2 sales managers, 34 salespeople plus many associates and assistants. The branches include a rural/lifestyle team, a commercial and a very active residential team, all supporting a town that is fast growing. We also operate a 600+ rental portfolio.
Franklin Hospice, local rugby clubs, schools and individuals are supported by Pukekohe, Tuakau and Pokeno offices with the focus of strengthening community relationships.
I work closely with my management and sales teams to achieve outstanding levels of client care and customer service and to provide an unparalleled real estate experience for anyone choosing to work with the Barfoot & Thompson team, Pukekohe, Tuakau and Pokeno.
