I firmly believe that life is about enjoying the journey. Learning to love what you do, finding happiness, success, meaning and fulfilment in one's efforts and the results accomplished along the way, is what makes the journey worthwhile.
For me, real estate is the same. I love every step and being instrumental in helping both property sellers and buyers move on to the next stage of their lives.
Barfoot & Thompson, in business for nearly 100 years, is a responsible and ethical real estate company, established on a foundation of trust and integrity. Sharing these values, I wanted to be a part of their brand.
After completing a Certificate in Journalism from Wellington Polytechnic, I enjoyed a career in advertising and media sales for nearly 19 years.

I’ve received many sales awards throughout my career and my sales and business experience, serves me well with my real estate clients.
West Harbour is an exciting location, reflecting a wide range of architectural tastes and styles. The Westgate shops are centrally located and it’s handy to the North Western motorway making it an attractive suburb for families and homeowners. I’ve lived in the North West region for over 16 years and I love it.
Outside of work I enjoy learning about new things, good food (who doesn’t) and relaxing at home in the country. English is my first language and I do speak a little German if that helps.
Call or email me at Barfoot & Thompson West Harbour. I have the skills to help you achieve your goals.
After meeting with other agencies, I found Phil to have the most businesslike and empathetic manner. I knew we would be able to work together as a team. Selling our house was an emotional journey which Phil appreciated. Phil kept everything in perspective, being organised and efficient throughout, reassuring us every step of the process through to the signed contract and following through in everything, getting us the price we're very satisfied with and making it a smooth experience. I would recommend Phil to anybody as he earns his money by always being there for the customer and the buyer. Thank you Phil.Yvonne & Paul
Phil's attention to detail is a valuable attribute in the preparation of preparing your house for market. First impressions are irreplaceable and we hit the mark when presenting our property at Rautawhiri Road with Phil's guidance. He knows the local area well, did his homework and kept us updated throughout, making the whole process stress-free. Phil was awesome, easy to work with and we had a few good laughs along the way too.
Thanks PhilVictoria Butt
Phil is a legend....He sold my property within a month AND got me more than I expected it!!! Phil was attentive to my needs and answered all of my questions promptly. He did an excellent job of marketing my unusually quirky property, which had other salespeople scratching their heads with confusion and achieved a fantastic result. If you need a real estate salesperson who cares, who pours their heart and soul into the job, who will work extra hard, for extra long hours.....Phil is your man!!!
Thanks PhilJane Lee-Cooper
I would definitely use Phil again. We had a difficult property to sell and Phil took it all in his stride coming in with a positive attitude and heaps of great ideas and suggestions. It was such a welcome change to other local salespeople that had been trying to talk us down over $100,000 from what Phil achieved for us in the sale price of our property. Cheers Phil!Jason Cain
One of the key things we appreciated, was Phil's trustworthiness and reliable nature. His word is as good as the old proverb 'of gentleman's agreement'. Never a doubt in our minds that he was not working hard behind the scenes to deliver. We appreciated too, the extra personal touches of professionalism that Phil delivered. From open homes to the photo shoots, Phil goes the extra mile and out of his way which demonstrates dedication to the profession. We would definitely seek Phil out in any future real estate opportunities.Roma & Frances
Phil sold us a beautiful home in Huapai which we absolutely love. We gave Phil a list of everything that we needed in a home and he delivered. He went above and beyond to ensure the deal was done in line with the sale of our other house. Even after the sale was complete and weeks after we had moved in, he was still helping us with little minor things that you get with a brand new home, which he didn't have to do. Would definitely use again in the future, highly recommend.
We would have no hesitation in recommending Phil Compain for your real estate needs, be it as a seller or a buyer. We were fortunate enough to attend one of Phil's open homes on a windy public holiday. Phil did not rush us and even took us to another more suitable property that we fell in love with. Phil assisted us with the tender process and was patient, encouraging and honest. We felt that he really did have the best interests of both ourselves and the seller in mind at all times. Phil is genuine, personable and we would have no hesitation in using his services again or in recommending him to others.Tracy Jones
Selling our home with Phil Compain was the most painless and stress-free experience, conducting the sales process in such a professional manner and always keeping us well informed. Phil approached everything with such enthusiasm. During the sale we found Phil to be so proactive and always ready to adapt to changes if the market required it. Coming from a business and marketing and sales background myself, in my opinion Phil certainly ticked all the boxes. Selling our home during the Lockdown period of Covid 19, go to whoa in five weeks, we thought was exceptional work. Phil comes with our highest recommendation to any potential house or property vendor.Peter & Lorraine Smith
