After 12 years in the New Zealand Police I decided to utilize my negotiating and people skills to start a real estate career with Barfoot & Thompson. I was initially in sales then spent five years managing the Warkworth office before moving back to the North Shore, where I now manage our Birkenhead team.
As with our clients I had the choice of many companies, each with their own selling point however the decision was easy. I went with the market leaders, Barfoot & Thompson, due to the immense advantages to our sellers and buyers. Being a non-franchised company means properties being marketed are not retained within a small franchise office or group, but immediately made available to more than 1,500 salespeople from around 77 offices Auckland North and their buyer databases. An advantage with true results as Barfoot & Thompson now sell more than one in three properties in the Auckland and North Shore market, meaning we are simply talking to more buyers than anyone else. This along with true family values and service, has served the company well since 1923.
The Birkenhead Branch has a history of being one of the company's high performing offices with a fantastic mix of experienced salespeople, a property management team, administration and customer service. From a broad ethnic and cultural background we are able to tap directly into our changing Auckland market and achieve phenomenal results often far exceeding our client expectations.
Barfoot & Thompson are well known as the market leaders and clearly the first choice for most of Auckland for a very good reason. If experience, service and outstanding results are important to you then you're in great company.

"I have been working with Pete Taylor for a year now. His attention to detail and knowledge about Real Estate has helped me to constantly evolve my business. He is very helpful and always has an open ear for vendors, purchasers and his staff. Working for him and with him makes me proud and every day is exciting and fun despite the many tasks that come with the job. Thanks Pete, I could not have a better manager than you!"Conny Meierhofer, Salesperson.
Having been an employer myself I know the trials and tribulations of being a boss. The way Pete Taylor manages the staff in the office, and the client service levels, is amongst the best I have seen. The staff are happy to come to work, there is a great work atmosphere and he exemplifies the values of the Barfoot & Thompson brand. Pete is truly a pleasure to work with and to work for.Julie Beaumont, Rental Manager Barfoot & Thompson, Warkworth.
Pete was the manager at Barfoot & Thompson when I started in the Warkworth office 4 years ago, first as an agent, now as the Customer Services Manager.
Having been a successful sales person, Pete brings valuable experience in all forms of real estate marketing, including auction and tender. He uses his negotiating skills to good effect with, and on behalf of the Warkworth agents and their clients.
Pete has honesty and integrity, infinite patience and a love of the job he is doing. He is a family man through and through, a quality I believe is very important. I have great respect for Pete as a manager and as a person.
