Since the opening of the 'New' Barfoot & Thompson Royal Heights Sales Office back in 2013 the Saxton's have quickly excelled, establishing themselves an impressive market share. Having already sold with another" Brand" within the Massey area and the North Shore, when asked to join the Barfoot & Thompson team, it was the perfect choice for this experienced couple, with the office ideally positioned to Westgate and the North Western Shopping Centre.
"If you can't beat them we might as well join them."
The difference between agencies is immense they say. This has been proven in their results. They often say ..We like to deal with good people, good properties and get great results.
Raymond and Pia have lived in West Harbour, Hobsonville, with their son attending Marina View School and spending countless hours at the Massey Rugby club. Pia can often be found donating her time at The Henderson Riding for the Disabled something she has done since 2004, providing invaluable coaching experience.
Remember advice is always free.. But not all real estate agents are created equal! With over 25 years sales experience Raymond and Pia have seen all the ups and downs that the market can throw at you. Use their ability to create buyers for properties that others have been 'unable to move' shows their persistence to 'squeeze every last drop' from the market. These two skills alone have made for an obvious choice amongst locals.
Raymond is innovative in his use of the internet and social media, maintains an extensive client database, as well as using traditional print media to reach local, national and international buyers.
"I found Raymond very professional and he did what he said he would do, gave me good advise and helped me sell the property in record time. I felt comfortable with him, and he is very trustworthy. Also he is a bit of a character.....love his humour, and he doesn't mind getting his hands dirty, he even pulled weeds out of my garden, he goes the extra mile to ensure the property is well presented to the max. I had tenants that lived downstairs and he was very considerate with them, ensuring that they were ok bringing people through the property when needed.
Would definitely sign up with Raymond in the future if I decided to sell again, however, I am moving north so would see if he'd come up and sell the property for me and would recommend him to others..Great guy, awesome real estate agent."
"My wife and I would like to express our sincere gratitude and appreciation to Mr Raymond Saxton for all the help and trouble he went to on our behalf whilst we were looking for a house to purchase. During our association with Raymond he was always very helpful. He listened to our requirements and was extremely proactive in trying to find the house of our dreams. nothing was too much trouble and Raymond was always happy to 'go the extra mile' on our behalf.
Raymond always presented a very professional approach with us, whilst at the same time being friendly and always willing to give advice and guidance. We could not have asked for more or better help with our search for a property on our arrival in New Zealand. We would like to extend a huge 'thank you' to Raymond for all his efforts."
"I would just like to express my appreciation on a job well done, Raymond and Pia have been an absolute pleasure to deal with and achieved me an excellent result above my expectations. I've dealt with many agents over the years and no-one has ever given me the level of confidence, security, or piece of mind that I've recently experienced, from start to finish well done."Terry Davis

"We would like to thank Raymond for the assistance support he provided to us during the sale of family home of 20 years - something we ere very nervous about. Raymond's attitude and constant contact set us at ease and by keeping us informed every step of the way. He gave us great confidence and made the sale process a lot easier. His dedication to finding a suitable purchaser was very impressive. Raymond has shown total professionalism and a high level of personal care that has made this stressful time a lot more bearable."
"Raymond is a hunter not a trapper he didn't wait to have the buyers come to him, like so many others. I had been on the market for 4 months with another agency prior to Raymond, he found the buyer god knows where but we got the result I was looking for in his first week. Very impressive. He did what he said he would and I respect that."Ed Riddle
