I believe a straightforward communication style that gives vendors and buyers a clear picture of the whole process, whether buying or selling, is the path to a successful outcome.
Whether I am working independently or as part of team, my extensive background as a business owner has prepared me well for the real estate industry. Originally a dairy owner in India, I know how to work hard, build relationships, and I enjoy meeting people from different cultural backgrounds.
Since moving to New Zealand in 2010, I have established a wide network of friends and contacts in and around the New Lynn area. I speak fluent English, Punjabi and Hindi, so I’m well equipped to deal with the many different cultures in this vibrant suburb.
Outside of my real estate career I enjoy spending time with my wife and my daughter Alisha.
If I can help you with any of your real estate needs, buying, selling or investing in property, please contact me at Barfoot & Thompson New Lynn.
I would like to give recommendation and feedback... Since, (Raman) helped me in finding my first home in Auckland... He was quite helpful to me all along during the home search process. Whenever I had any doubts in buying ... he always stood up for me. I am so thankful that we found a great person who was so kind and helpful in our home finding journey and he did it so fast and wonderfully. I always recommend Mr Raman Sharma to everyone who want his services. Just close your eyes and trust him. He is a gem of a person and a great guide.
ThanksPuneet Chutani - First Home Buyer
We would like to give our sincere thank you to Raman Sharma. We are so fortunate to have met you as our real estate salesperson, not only with finding and purchasing our home a couple of years back, but also in selling our home as well! We truly felt that you have definitely gone beyond your duty as a real estate salesperson just to make sure we are happy with every bit of decision we make. You have been there for us every step of the way ... You have provided us an excellent service and professionalism. Thank you for making our dream come true. We truly appreciate that you really value the homes of your clients and treat them with care and respect. I would highly recommend Raman to everyone I know.Bobby, Christine and Bradley Barrameda
We want to take this moment to thank Barfoot & Thompson and especially their salesperson Raman Sharma, who helped us in buying our first home. He assisted us through every single step from searching the right house and he made this experience so smooth for us that we did not have to stress too much about buying our first home. He was kind enough to answer all our queries related to the house and was always there on the phone when we needed him. His experience in the real estate industry helped us in securing our first home and he also taught us a lot about the whole process of buying a home ...We would definitely recommend Barfoot & Thompson and especially Raman Sharma to our friends and family who are looking for their own home.Lalit & Rose
From day one, Raman clearly understood my requirements and regularly presented numerous options that fitted all my needs. He then setup viewings for all the shortlisted homes and always gave an honest and unbiased option. He patiently explained the intricacies of the Auckland property market. He would do some detailed research and present all the data about the houses and did not lose his patience even after going to over a hundred homes with me!
Finally, when I found that perfect house, Raman made sure I got the best price for it and also helped me all the way to the settlement and the move-in. Thanks to him, I managed to secure my dream house at the best possible price!
You've been right there, helping out whenever needed and encouraged us to never give up for the past 9 months. Everything has finally come together and we have moved into our first house. Thank you for being persistent and supportive for all this while.CJ Lai
Thanks a lot for letting me find my dream first home. It was never possible without you. The way you helped to find our house (was) really commendable. I really ... appreciate your patience and dedication. Your efforts in sales skills is highly recommendable Raman. My husband and I will always be grateful for your support.Deepa
I'd like to thank Raman Sharma for all the hard work he did for us. For buyers out there if you want to purchase your house as quickly as possible, I recommend Raman Sharma to you because he will never let you down.Tafia
Raman was easy and friendly to deal with and helped get things rolling so I could move into my home as soon as possible. As the purchaser I understand this was above and beyond given that his job is to work for the seller but as a first home buyer having an agent that helped me through the process was amazing. I'd highly recommend Raman if you are wanting to buy a property.K Shanmugam
When myself and my wife started our home search we were really not confident that we could buy our own house in this Auckland market, but we started going into random open homes. We were lucky we met Raman in one of his open homes. He understood our requirements and since that day he has worked with us relentlessly to find the perfect home.
Raman used to send us listings matching our criteria hours within being listed and arranged viewings in short notice. We were really selective and with limited budget, so have rejected at least 20 houses where Raman took us, but best part about Raman is he never got frustrated with our rejections, rather after one rejection he will immediately start working towards finding the next best match for us. Because of our limitations it took us almost three months before we found our dream house matching all requirements. But Raman was always there to help throughout. Thanks Raman, buying our first home wouldn't have been possible without your help and support.
I met Raman, in one of the open homes...He ... will listen to your requirements and ultimately he won't push you ... When it comes to locking the deal he always recommends you to 'take time and think.' (Raman is) genuine and will never lose the hope in you. I recommend Raman to my friends.Aadhi
Raman Sharma has been very helpful and supportive right from the very start whilst my family was looking for a property. Myself and family are very grateful and appreciate Sharma's effort to get us our very first home in New Zealand ...
We recommend Sharma and the service that he provides and will certainly be back to use his service again some day. He made us feel completely at ease as he regularly provided updates during the whole process.
It is quite a stressful process right from when placing the offer conditionally until it became unconditional. (Raman) managed to liaise with the property owner (which) has given us less stress. He is very prompt and always present anytime at any place when required no matter what day of the week. (Raman was very helpful with advice) as we have limited knowledge of (the) buying property process.
A big THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts...
We are writing to express our pleasure with Real Estate agent Raman Sharma who represented us in our recent purchase of a family home.
Raman guided us through the entire process, from loan prequalification to searching for houses to making the offer and closing the deal. We credit Raman with a smooth , stress free home buying experience. Raman is savvy , personable and knows the market inside and out. We never could have gotten our dream home without him.
To reiterate , we are nothing but pleased with Raman and his expertise and we recommend him to everyone.
I had the pleasure of working with Raman when buying my first home. Raman went out of his way to show me properties that would be my first home. He made the house buying process very easy at a very stressful time for me. He has a calm, considerate and very professional work ethic. Raman is definitely the agent I will be contacting for my next property purchase or sale.Shivon N
Raman is an extremely professional person who was a pleasure to deal with. We bought a property through him and he was very helpful during the process. Later we found the issues with the roof and when the main real estate agents refused to deal with it, Raman stepped up and contributed towards the repair cost from his own pocket. We will highly recommend Raman if anyone is planning to buy or sell their house.Roma & Deep
