During my 25 years in commercial and industrial real estate, I have seen the best and the worst of markets. I am well versed in all facets of commercial and industrial real estate in sales and leasing and operate predominantly in South Auckland.
Integral to my business has been treating property owners and business operators as partners rather than clients and customers, a practice that has afforded me a high level of repeat and referral business.
Outside my realty focus, I am involved with local business associations and community and sports organisations. Please feel free to contact me today for professional advice and service.
We recently sold a commercial property with Rob Taylor from the South Auckland Commercial Branch of Barfoot & Thompson. We couldn't be happier with how he performed throughout the entire marketing process until the eventual successful settlement of the property. What sets him apart from other consultants is that Rob demonstrated his innate ability to connect and relate with people, understand our requirements, then provide sound advice and guidance, and most importantly always working in our best interests.
Rob’s recommended marketing campaign immediately generated multiple interested parties resulting in a written offer which wasn’t at the level we were seeking. Rob wasn’t pushy at all, instead of talking down our price expectation, Rob suggested to be upfront with the interested purchaser (introduced by his colleague) to increase their offer, otherwise they submit their best offer by the deadline sale date. His recommendation worked as there were several offers at the closing of the deadline sale with the instigating offer from his colleague improved to a level we happily accepted.
His professionalism and experience shone through when the purchaser failed to settle in a timely manner. Rob’s calm nature throughout the uncertainties in the delay of settlement was very helpful in allaying the stress we experienced. What impressed us the most was that he went the extra mile in coordinating numerous inspections of the property required by the purchaser to ensure the settlement went ahead. This was greatly appreciated.
Rob is a skilled negotiator with an intimate local knowledge of the commercial and industrial markets that was evident throughout the communication and negotiation process. Last, but not least, Rob treated us like a partnership that has achieved an outstanding result for us.
We would not hesitate in recommending Rob unreservedly for anyone who wants a fantastic experience in selling their property.Eric & Sew - Vendors
