I have lived in West Auckland for over 45 years and as such have gained an excellent knowledge of the region. Prior to real estate, I owned and managed a successful business in the automotive industry in West Auckland for over 16 years. Now in my 16th year in real estate, I have built up expertise in the residential property market which I want to share with you.
I strive to deliver a first-class service experience to my clients. I believe in the importance of sticking to the basics with strong ongoing communication. I support my clients step-by-step through the selling process and utilise a friendly no-pressure approach. I believe that local area knowledge, marketing and negotiating expertise and a commitment to exemplary customer service leads to a positive outcome for all parties.
I am delighted to now have on board my Sales Associate, Katie Williams. Katie has a background in the legal sector and has a sound knowledge of contracts, working to deadlines and administration. Together we are a capable and tenacious team. We combine our skill sets to bring a first-rate experience to all our clients whether selling or buying. We aim to guide our clients through the real estate journey with care and commonsense ethics. Our goal is to deliver results that will exceed your expectations.
Our joint philosophy is simple. We want to help you build a better future through property.
Thanks so much, Paul and Katie, for assisting us in the purchase of our first home. Buying a property in Auckland can be an emotional rollercoaster, and can sometimes be a challenge of who we can talk to. Katie was one of the most genuine real estate salespeople we have met and it was a pleasure to buy our first home through her and Paul.Shinnae & Ritchie
Katie and Paul were amazing throughout my sale process. They listened to my concerns, they were thorough in the presales paperwork and they cared throughout the process. These two people are incredible to deal with and I have no reservations in thoroughly recommending them to others!Mary S
"A big thank you to Paul and Katie, for a very professional yet personal approach to the successful sale of our house. This is the third house I've been involved in where Paul has been the salesperson and every one has exceeded our expectations. The advice, the effort, the care, the help, has always been first class, so I've not hesitated to ask Katie and Paul to help find a suitable home out West for my daughter - and I'm sure that this too will be successful."Mike C
Just want to pass on our biggest thank you for the lovely gift boxes (and selling our house!). It has been an absolute pleasure to deal with you both again for the sale of both our family homes this year. My parents also wish to pass on their gratitude to you both. They were pleasantly surprised with the gift box too."Candice & Rhyno
We found Paul and Katie to be very helpful and most understanding. We would heartily recommend them.Helen & John
Paul and Katie made the selling of our house a breeze! Their genuine and supportive approach enabled us to sell our house in Auckland remotely from Tauranga. The use of evening video calls, regular updates and reports, and Docusign to fast track document signing, all helped make the process stress-free. We would happily recommend their dynamic-duo services to all!Brent & Athina
Just want to pass on our thanks to both of you for helping us with the property. It has been a pleasure working with you both. We appreciate your professionalism, your genuine approach to selling properties and always having your customer's best interests at heart.Candice & Rhyno
Thanks to both Paul and Katie for your support along the way and the selling process went really smooth. We are happy with the outcome.Andy D
Thank you so much! You have been absolutely amazing. Although you act on behalf of the seller, you have been amazing for Sam and I to deal with, and we can’t imagine dealing with any other salesperson other than yourself. This was a very personal journey for Sam and I, and we are very glad and genuinely happy that you were a part of it. Thank you Paul.Amy & Sam Y
Great sale of my house and great work from team Paul Farry and Katie Williams.
Without hesitation, I recommend Paul Farry to anyone who wants to sell their property. Paul was fantastic and easy to deal with and his calm methodical approach took the stress out of what can be a stressful process. He was very professional, friendly, honest and his integrity and performance was second to none! He did an outstanding job selling our property and has been an absolute pleasure to deal with!Chris A
I had never sold a property before and at almost 82 it was very daunting. Paul Farry and team were very supportive and helpful even when I was anxious.They were positive and reassuring.Maureen H
We recently had the good fortune to stumble across Paul when we visited an open home. Paul took time to chat to us and find out what we were looking for. He then regularly emailed us listings of houses that may work for us. Over the next few months we visited quite a few houses and Paul was alway professional, friendly and interested in our search, without being pushy or in our faces. When we finally decided to put an offer on a house, Paul managed the negotiation process in a very professional way. We would thoroughly recommend Paul if you are looking at buying or selling. He is congenial and honest. He understands the market; and wants the best outcome for both the vendor and purchaser.Chris and Jeanette
Thank you so much for the many kindnesses you have given us during the selling of our house. We will always tell others how wonderful you have been. All the best.Terry & Faye
Our agent Paul was fantastic. Everything went very smoothly during what was a difficult time for us. He went the extra mile and was very caring.Raymond Doherty & Shannon Doherty
I would not hesitate at all to recommend Paul Farry and his sister Deb Farry as real estate agents. We first met Paul and Deb a few years ago when we asked them to do an appraisal of our property we
were selling at that time. They returned our call straight away and have proved to be available at a moments notice ever since. Paul and Deb are very professional, trust worthy and their paper work is meticulous.
We have now bought and sold a quite few properties with their help achieving great results.
Availing ourselves of their services time after time speaks for itself.

"I would not hesitate to recommend Paul Farry. He was very helpful in every aspect of the sale of our house. He was in the office working very late hours, to secure the sale for us. He even went and dug some soil, which was against the garage wall, to obtain sign off from the council( we live overseas).I feel he went over and above for us and could not praise him highly enough. Even though we never met him in person , from phone conversations he sounds like a really genuine nice guy."Val F
"Paul helped us purchase our first home 8 years ago and was absolutely amazing, very helpful and understanding. When we decided to sell that same house, there was no doubt in our mind we would ask Paul to help us again. Every step of the way he kept us well informed, despite the fact we live in another country, if we ever had questions he was always there for us. Thank you so much Paul."Juanita B

Paul Farry helped us through the process with ease and we felt very comfortable working with him. We feel that Paul Farry goes the extra mile and nothing is too big or to
small for him to solve. We are very grateful for his services and if we ever need to sell or know of anyone selling we would certainty recommend him.
"We found Paul to be an extremely approachable guy with an exceptional attitude to his work, he was available at every stage and anytime we had a question. Paul assisted us in the purchase of the property and also, in the sale of the same property, and he is assisting in our new purchase. Reliable, honest, professional, helpful and a nice guy also, I will recommend him to my family and friends."Trevor W

"I have bought and sold many properties over the passed thirty years. I would highly recommend Debra and Paul as your agents. I have dealt with numerous agents in Hawkes Bay and West Auckland and found Paul and Debra to be in a league of their own. They are exceptionally ethical, professional, trustworthy and fun to do business with. I will return to them to do all future buying and selling of properties I may be involved with. Barfoot & Thompson as a company have the market cornered. It has been a pleasure to get to know all those I have met at the Te Atatu Peninsula branch. Thank You."Deborah H

They made no promises, but were always confident our house would sell, the whole process going according to plan."Mark and Diane E
"He and his sister Debra are very caring people. They kept in contact and made themselves available at all times. They gave me all info needed and explained everything clearly. This whole thing was a very big deal for me and Paul came round with coffee and cakes to cheer me up, when it was difficult. He and Debra are the kind of agents you need, when you are on your own and don't know what you are doing. I would recommend them to anyone. They are great people and great agents for your company. Best experience you could have selling a home. Kept me calm all through."Jill B

He kept us informed, providing regular feedback from the open homes and was always available to contact. He didn't put undue pressure on us and was always optimistic, yet realistic about the sale of the property. He and his sister Debra treated us with respect and acted in a professional manner. We would have no hesitation in recommending Paul and the Barfoot & Thompson team to friends and associates."James H
"As first time home buyers and vendors we had no idea where to start. Paul guided us through step by step in a professional and very friendly manner. He puts his entire being into your time and makes you the important person. He is honest and trustworthy; he is professional in everything he does. There is no middle man with Paul. He is all an agent should be. We love you Paul, Thank you for everything!"Michael and Joanie S
"I found Paul to be honest and straight forward to deal with, in the first instance the house was getting various comments to the detriment of trying to sell it, he came up with some ideas to help the sale which I followed to his delight and the house was sold quickly afterwards. In my view if Paul had not been as helpful as he was, and I had not followed his leads, possibly the house would still be on the market now."Rick C
"Paul was knowledgeable, friendly and accommodating. He worked hard to get the required result and the outcome was above our expectations. Paul has definitely restored my faith in real estate agents, as my prior bad experiences with other agents had diminished my faith in the real estate profession. Thanks Paul - a definite pleasure doing business with you."Juan K
"Having recently sold our property through Paul, we would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone requiring honest and reliable real estate service or advice. We needed a quick sale and top dollar for our house and while Paul made no promises he said he would do his best. His best exceeded our expectations on both counts. Expert advice on where best to place our advertising and also on presenting our property helped to contribute to what we would describe as a perfect result. While we can't say you will get the same result, you will get the same level of service and advice. I would like to thank Paul and his team for their efforts and wish him well."Kelly W
