What my clients say

We purchased a 2-bedroom unit in New Lynn through Paresh Patel. Paresh was prompt in taking us to visit the property, gave us time to have a close look at the unit and guided us through the offer process. He was quick to submit our offer and gave us the result expeditiously. He did not push, or pressurise us, at any stage.

Paresh is hard working. He is honest in clarifying matters and answers questions to one’s satisfaction. He is very good at troubleshooting and easy to deal with.

We have no hesitation in recommending Paresh to anyone looking to buy or market their property.

Vincent & Ernestine Rego

I am so thankful to have you as a salesperson. The sale of the house feels like a miracle! I am happy to have our Dominion Road, Mt Roskill house sold. Your methods of attracting buyers worked! You convinced my existing stubborn tenants to cooperate during the open homes which massively impressed me. I appreciate the abundance of time you spent on it as we know it was a lot more than the average house sale. We look forward to working with you again in the future.

Thanks again

Alpesh & Sonal Shah

Paresh has wanted to sell our house for the last seven or so years! He has rung us twice a year and has regularly mailed us market updates along with calendars and other items with his name and details on them. (Beverly-Ann's favourite is a little round mirror that she uses for reapplying her lipstick.)

Finally, as we had planned for a number of years, Denis retired at the end of 2018 and we decided to sell and move to Hamilton to be closer to family.

Having never met Paresh in person, our first meeting with him was crucial because we wanted to see how experienced, competent and trustworthy he was. Paresh convinced us in these important aspects, especially when other people had said you must interview two or three agents and then choose who you think suits you. We felt that Paresh was honest, had our best interests at heart and was motivated to sell our house at a good price. Also, we were impressed when he told us that some years previously he had walked down our street and picked out a numbers of houses that he wished to sell in the future. One of those houses was our one. He saw potential in our property, mainly to do with the size and configuration of the land and the view we have of the golf course.

Paresh's experience immediately showed in two key pieces of advice he gave us after his initial inspection of our property. Firstly the clutter in our house and garage, built up over 34 years, had to go. Our house needed to be visually spare/pared back/empty as possible so people could see its potential. Secondly, we needed to move a fence that was across the middle of our property right to the back next to the golf course so that people could see the true size of the land. He said that regardless of what people were told they would go onto our decking, their eyes would stop at the fence and most would not realise that our back boundary went to the golf course.

We had never sold a house before and felt quite naive about the whole process. Paresh patiently talked us through the various steps of the process. We felt that he prepared us well for each part and gave weekly updates and an "overall picture" of how the marketing campaign was progressing. He would always say: "Do you have any questions? If you have any questions don't hesitate to ring me and ask me". During the "open home" phase and leading up to the auction he kept us informed of potential buyers. He would follow up the business cards left by his Barfoot & Thompson colleagues and visit and tell us about the various potential buyers.

We liked little things such as the way Paresh would shake our hands when he came or and when he left us. He set a high standard of professionalism. He came across as a no-nonsense, focused sort of person, who was working to get us the best price and we really appreciated that.

To be honest we would have liked him to be a touch more charming but, when it came down to it, he accurately predicted the type of buyer who would appreciate our property the most and we did get a very good price in a sinking market. 'Charm' can be overrated and overused within the real estate world. We feel we got great value and service both from Paresh and Barfoot & Thompson.

We would not hesitate to recommend Paresh as a principled, savvy and motivated real estate salesperson.

Beverly-Ann and Denis Burchill

This letter will serve as my very high letter of recommendation for real estate salesperson Mr Paresh Patel, who works with Barfoot & Thompson. He assisted me and my wife with the purchase of our first home in Parker Avenue, New Lynn, Auckland in 2018. Paresh has the qualities that make him an extremely successful and effective broker. I can’t say enough about his professionalism and knowledge within the industry. Our real estate purchase was not so big transaction but he treated us with the same professionalism. One of the qualities I appreciated the most was his patience. Being the first home buyer, we were not experienced enough to deal with all the purchasing formalities but he worked out the deal so well for us which made us confident enough to realise we were making the right decision. He gets to the point quickly yet professionally. He helped us to make a confident decision in the very first meeting we were with him just to view the property. I have the highest level of confidence in him. Our transaction went very smoothly and we closed on time. We had a small issue on a roof leak and a faulty dishwasher and Paresh had good follow through. As mentioned above, he represented us on the purchase side of the transaction. We also would not hesitate to use him as my listing salesperson if I were selling a property. I would love to have Paresh represent me in future for selling as well.

Harinder Rajpal

I have known Paresh since 2009 when he sold my first home at a great price. After two years he suggested that I buy a brand new house. He also bought that house for me at the best price possible. He gives detailed reasons about the pros and cons of properties and why you should or shouldn't buy them, also giving an idea of how the property will grow in the future. I have bought two properties and sold two properties with the help of Paresh. Now, not is he only my property salesperson but a great friend too. I highly recommend him to anyone who is selling or buying a property and wish him good luck in the future. 

Deven Kothari

We highly recommend Paresh Patel for any real estate needs. We have been working Paresh for last ten years for our real estate portfolio development. Paresh is very competent, highly efficient and very resourceful. Paresh was very responsive during pre-listing and post-listing processes. He is a very good negotiator who helped us to close the deal on our terms. We observed Paresh to be very transparent during the entire process and provided us with the correct information to make the right decisions on time. We made the right choice in engaging Paresh for our real estate needs. 

Deepak Pandya

In March 2019, we decided to sell our property in Miro Street, New Lynn.

Over a number of years, Paresh Patel of Barfoot & Thompson, New Lynn, had maintained contact with us, and we contacted him to discuss the possibility of him marketing our property.

From the outset, Paresh’s approach was attentive and professional.  He spent time with us understanding the property and our objectives in considering sale.  He prepared a marketing plan that worked with those objectives, designed to attract just the right buyers in order to achieve the best possible price.

Paresh also gave us valuable information on what we needed to do to maximise the features of the property pre-sale, and this was especially valuable given that the property was unoccupied throughout the open home process. Paresh hosted a number of open homes, capably qualified buyers, and worked hard to get buyers to the auction.

As we approached the auction, we discovered a minor but unresolved matter on the property’s title.  Paresh calmly worked though the resolution process with us. On auction day the property sold at the higher end of our expectations. This was despite the title issue being unresolved on auction date and was a real testament to Paresh’s sales ability.

We would highly recommend Paresh to anyone wanting to buy or sell property and have recommended him to friends on a number of occasions.

David & Carol Marshall

My wife and I have known Paresh for a number of years, and since he has been in real estate he is the person to go to for any real estate needs. Dealing with him has been great and he does the best that he is able to do for us and is always onto it. He is a salesperson that we can rely on and we will not hesitate to deal with Paresh again, and definitely recommend him to people that need any help regarding real estate.

Hitesh & Bharti Patel

Paresh was so easy to deal with.  He took the time to listen to our individual requirements and asked the right questions to understand our circumstances. He didn’t show us places he thought would suit us which would have wasted our time.  Instead, because he listened, he found the right place for us within a very short time. We’re both very thankful for his insight, genuine understanding of his customers and for providing his expertise and guidance to make such a big decision an easier and smooth process.

We would highly recommend Paresh Patel for any real estate requirements. 

Kirit & Sarda Limbachia

Paresh’s assistance and knowledge was incredibly valuable with helping us to sell my late grandfather's property. He knew through the Christmas period when would be the right time in the New Year to start to market and how to market the property and without his expertise, I don’t know if we would have had the same result, a result that far exceeded our expectations. Paresh, I would not hesitate to use or recommend you to anyone looking to sell or buy a property in the future. Again, thank you for helping make a difficult time for our family so much easier and for what you achieved with the sale.

Wade Downey

Mr Patel. Once again thank you for helping me to get the right property. I've known him as a real estate salesperson since 2004 when purchasing my first home as a first home buyer. I still remember him as a professional, courteous, friendly salesperson as he is now. He provides excellent advice in buying the right property and once again he proved himself as the best salesperson after many years of real estate experience with an abundance of property market knowledge. Thank you very much for helping me to find the perfect property. 

Praful Patel

I met Paresh Patel four years ago and was impressed by his enthusiasm for his chosen profession of 'real estate'. The interest he shows in whatever you are thinking of, whether it be property or land, and above all his honesty, are very satisfying.

Paresh is always immaculate in his appearance and very courteous. I have no hesitation in recommending Paresh if you are considering moving house, buying a new property or land for the future.

Heather Lamont

Highly skilled real estate salesperson with huge knowledge in his field of 'real estate' with a exceptional network of people. He is immensely sincere, reliable and helpful and we greatly appreciate and recommend his services.

Sunita Bhide

My family and I would like to thank Barfoot & Thompson and especially Paresh Patel, who provided us with support and advice every step of the way. His professionalism and sound competence makes him an outstanding real estate agent. I'd highly recommend him to anyone and I hope we can continue to have a great working relationship in the future.

Warmest regards

Ritesh Mistry

Mr Patel sold my property in December 2003. I was impressed with the professional manner in which he handled this sale and in particular the way he kept me regularly informed. If Mr Patel conducts himself along similar lines in his dealing then I believe he will have a successful future with Barfoot & Thompson New Lynn.


Paresh Patel from Barfoot & Thompson New Lynn assisted me in purchasing my first home. I found him to be very professional, motivated and hard working. Paresh's after sales services was very pleasant.
I would endeavour to use his services in the future and would not hesitate in recommending Paresh Patel to anyone who wishes to buy or sell a property.


Edith and I would like to formally thank you for concluding the purchase of a unit in Glen Eden and quite in line with our specific requirement. We got what we wanted within or near our budget. Besides, we gathered a fair bit of knowledge to add to our little bit of managing real estate.
We appreciated your friendly nature and help and will not hesitate to approach you in the future hopefully.

Edith & Peter

My wife and I found Paresh to be professional from first contact to the final deal being signed. There was a lot of negotiating to be done, Paresh managed to finalise the deal at 3am with both parties happy. Paresh is a straight up trustworthy salesman, and being in high volume sales myself, know how important and hard to find that is.

D Grossart

I am getting settled in my new home in Mt Roskill, but wanted to take a minute to thank you for all your help in selling my home. It wasn't easy to leave behind such a wonderful community, but working with you made it easier. Your professionalism and availability were greatly appreciated. I will refer my friends who are looking for homes in the area to you. From start to finish Paresh has exerted himself beyond what one would normally expect. Hard work and diligence resulted in regular qualified buyers inspecting our property, with all offers being conveyed to us. The friendly, professional and efficient service resulted in a contract above the market value for the area and in a reasonable time frame. We have no hesitation in recommending Paresh Patel to any prospective seller.
We appreciated how you dealt with all issues we raised in a quick and forthright manner. Lets hope that the closing goes as smoothly as the rest has and we are truly joyous over our new home. Thanks for all your help.


Paresh crossed my path when I was about to sell a considerable portfolio of properties, prior to my going overseas.
At that time I already had established relationships with a number of other real estate agents, but it was fortunate that Paresh persuaded me to give him a try. Had I not, I would have been the loser!!
Paresh has a high level of determination and energy. These are common denominators of success.
As a vendor, one has to be knowledgeable about the market, lest the agent in his zeal to make a sale bridges the "gap" between the vendor and the purchaser too far in the direction of the purchaser. Paresh is not that sort of agent. Whilst he is a realist about "The Market" he never overlooks his professional obligations to represent the vendor's interests.
Allied with these professional characteristics, I found him to be an extremely open and honest man, with whom, in the sale of my properties, I was able to work alongside with complete trust and confidence.
The outcome was fairness and success and profit for all parties. I enjoyed my association with Paresh. I also like the man.
Should you, the reader of this, be contemplating using Paresh's services then I urge you to give him the opportunity to prove himself to you.
I doubt that you will be disappointed.
