Real Estate is more than a job! It's my passion!
I have been selling residential real estate since 1993. I’m re-joining the team at Barfoot & Thompson Glen Eden after 22 years at the New Lynn office. I specialise in the Central and West Auckland suburbs, and having lived and worked in the area for most of my life, for example Sandringham, Avondale, Mt Roskill, Te Atatu and more, I understand what makes them special.
I am able to work effectively in any sales arena and identify market trends. It is worth noting that there have been plenty over the years. This has contributed to my success to date. I work diligently to ensure the best outcome for sellers and buyers - always with a smile. This approach has resulted in many referrals which has become a big part of my business!
When I’m not working, I’m kept busy with watching the sports that I love including cricket, rugby, league, tennis and athletics, to name just a few! A happy place for me is the beach where I indulge my love for walking. My mum, husband Mark and my much-loved cat Mickey (my 3x M’s) are at the centre of my bubble.
I am a trusted and respected salesperson within the real estate industry. I believe communicating with my clients throughout the selling and buying process enables me to identify any road-blocks that may crop up. I can then make the process as stress-free as possible, ensuring the best outcome for sellers and buyers.
Call me at the Barfoot & Thompson Glen Eden, email me or pop in to the office for a chat!
If you are reading this, then you have definitely found the perfect salesperson to market your property. I received top service from Sue with my recent rental property sale. I live in Dunedin, so long distance communications + dealings with tenants + the recent Level 3 Lockdown, were tricky. Sue just made it all such a breeze~ You can be sure that she will go the extra mile to get the most for your property. Thank you so very much again Sue for all your hard work :DJessica - Feb 21
We enjoyed working with Sue recently when selling our home. We found Sue to be professional and friendly. Her attention to detail meant nothing was missed and her communication was impeccable. We chose Sue because of her experience and we were not let down. Her understanding of the market enabled us to list our home at the right time, which led to a very quick sale. She was an absolute pleasure to work with and we would recommend her to anyone.
CheersDebbie & Sue
We worked with Sue on selling our property in Titirangi. In very challenging Covid times, Sue had potential buyers at our unit nearly every day as normal open homes were not able to be run. This increased focus resulted in a good number of registered buyers at the auction and a very pleasing result. If you need a salesperson that will work hard in all situations, keep you fully-informed at all times and obtain the best price possible, then look no further than Sue.Marc Atkinson
Sue is our first choice agent in West Auckland. She is knowledgeable about the local market, committed to her clients and operates with integrity. She has enthusiasm for her work and empathy with people - the ideal estate agent. She has served us very well in our sales.Chris & Tom
I'd like to really thank you for your help. I really wanted to support you. You make what is a tough process enjoyable, so disappointed I couldn't get a house through you. However, my brother will be on the hunt soon so will be highly recommending you. Thanks again...Vanessa
"Sue Allan is awesome. Nothing was a problem. Sue made this sale a breeze. Once again, thank you."Janette
"Sue is knowledgeable of her market, experienced in her industry and showed herself to be a capable and flexible salesperson with a positive attitude and genuine desire to get a result for all parties involved in the transaction. She is very honest, likable and trustworthy. Compared to agents we met from (other companies) she was streets ahead in every respect. (Our opinion is that Barfoot & Thomspon are very lucky to have her.)It was a pleasure to deal with Sue and we would recommend her to anyone interested in dealing with a real estate company."D & M O'Sullivan
"This is the third time I have had dealings with Sue over a period of 16 years and she has done a fantastic job for me and my wife on all occasions. I have no hesitation in recommending Sue as a reliable, honest and trustworthy person to entrust the sale of or purchase of a home or other property."J A Sutton QSM JP
"I appointed Sue Allan to sell our home that had been neglected over the years by long term tenants. Sue utilised her knowledge of the market and supreme marketing skills to ensure we obtained a higher than expected price for our home. Throughout the entire process, Sue kept us well informed with daily updates, demonstrating and excellent ability to communicate effectively.
I have no hesitation in recommending Sue to any potential client wishing to engage her services in the real estate industry."
"We would like to thank you for all your hard work in selling our house. It is much appreciated. We liked you when we bought our house listed with you three years back and you had certainly left a mark. When we decided to sell our other house, you were the only person we thought of.
You are professional yet friendly and we really appreciated you going out of your way and managing a win-win situation every time. You kept us posted with all the updates and getting hold of you was never a problem. Your enthusiasm and positive attitude always kept our hopes high.
Within four days of listing the house with you, you got us an offer which turned into an agreement and finally a sale. That is just terrific. You are the best!"
"Thank you for all the work you contributed to the sale of our old house and purchase of the new - from sale preparation right through to move in day.
We have no regret's following Sam's advice to go with you as our agent as it was quickly evident that you had what we were looking for to sell our house in the best way possible.
Your relentless positive attitude was encouraging for us and justified in what we achieved - we really are very pleased with the outcome!"
"Sue's professionalism was excellent and her helpfulness and friendliness to me in what was a very emotional experience, was above what I would expect of an agent selling a house...she sold a home...because that was what it was to me and I believe it will be to the new owners!! Thank you Sue!"Barbara
"Thank you for the beautiful flowers, they are stunning. We both appreciated the fantastic job you did in selling our house and have passed your name on to family and friends out West. You will probably hear from us later on next year when we look at putting the other house on the market. Once again thank you so much."Cherie and Paul
"Sue was friendly and professional to deal with. She made the marketing of our house easy and as stress free as possible. Through the auction process she managed to achieve a much higher price for our house than we expected which we were delighted with."Sacha & Myles
"Sue, thank you for your winning smile, sharing your friendly yet professional, positive enthusiasm and for exceptional service at all times. Your negotiation and diplomacy skills are excellent; we appreciated your honesty and not being too pushy. Chris, Elizabeth and I thank you for achieving a win/win for us so we can move on. We were highly touched that Sue bought a bottle of Moet to celebrate and share with us after she found the buyer and achieved a conditional sale.
She has also been very pro-active helping us find our next dream home. Nothing is too much trouble for Sue, she is always happy to show us properties/answer questions or provide additional information when asked.
We wish Sue well and feel very blessed to have had the privilege of her knowledge and services. She has a great rapport with people and we highly recommend Sue to anyone who is contemplating listing or buying their next house. She is a winner!"
"Good work marketing the property; achieved a super price by getting the right people interested. Well done!"Kanuka & Grit
"Thank you for your recent assistance during our purchase of 39 Mason street, New Lynn. Our property search was one which lasted many months and during that time we met a lot of agents from different real estate companies. Along with this, in my role as a recruiter I often interview people from the real estate sector. I am very familiar with the broad mix of people that operate within your field.
During our recent search for a new home I would have to say that the agents that represent Barfoot and Thompson proved themselves to be the best around. In particular I found your integrity and professionalism to be an absolute credit to yourself, and to Barfoot and Thompson.
The property search process is a trying time for most people and I am no exception. Your demonstrably well informed input was greatly valued and your candour and subtle guidance provided a calming influence throughout a somewhat tense time for us.
Thank you for introducing us to, and helping us secure the family home of our dreams. Although we won't be selling anytime soon I would have no hesitation in urging anyone I know who is thinking of selling to talk to you first."
PS - Thank you for our home warming gift too!
"Thank you so much for helping us buy our first house nearly eight years ago and thank you again for all your help in selling that house and helping us secure our new house this year. You went that extra mile and then some! You were always there, even if it was just for a chat on how things were going. Thanks again for everything."Sharon & David Greenstreet
"Congratulations on being my top auction agent
in the West. It's always a pleasure working with you.
Keep up the good work"
I would like to say a big "Thank you" to you for all that you have done for me (& the family) over the past 6 months or so. It has been a pleasure to work with you through what could have been an extremely stressful time - but you made the selling, and buying process simple & straight forward. You are a very special & classy real estate saleslady!Kathy
"She was always happy and friendly and
kept in touch with us regularly to let us know the latest news on the sales. We appreciated that very much as changing houses when you are older is very stressful"
"We loved dealing with you. You were friendly, professional, you followed up regularly, we sensed your genuine sincerity in dealing with us as Sellers and yet you also represented the interest of your Buyer. You struck a happy balance between the two. We felt we could trust you and we relied on your judgement."Miriam and Thea Hallie
