I am a dynamic and driven professional who ensures my clients get the desired results. Delivering excellent service and putting forward my clients' needs and interests is what I’m passionate about. Buying my first property when I was 19 showed me the value of property in your life. I want to make sure you feel supported and that you have a trusted advisor by your side.
For nearly 20 years, I held management positions with Pernod Ricard Winemakers. As with real estate, customer satisfaction was my number one priority. Building relationships, project management and dealing with contractors are all vital skills I bring to this industry. I also ran a successful servicing business in the Eastern suburbs for almost 10 years.
Barfoot & Thompson, a family-owned business for nearly 100 years, assists people with their property needs. Being the largest non-franchised real estate company with no regional restrictions, the reach of their property campaigns creates a powerful scale of competition.
Growing up in South Auckland and working in the Eastern suburbs, I’m familiar with the surrounding locations. Its multicultural and diverse population makes it a vibrant and enjoyable place to raise a family. The old-world charm of Howick, with its lovely cafes and bars, Howick village, and some of the most beautiful beaches, is second-to-none.
I enjoy spending time with my wife and three daughters. I join in when my six-year-old is snuggling on the couch with her pet cat Sky, watching all the Princess movies. Daily power walks keep me fit, and I enjoy watching sports and listening to music. A five-star chef as voted by my wife! I like to support the Heart Foundation of New Zealand and the Breast Cancer Foundation of New Zealand.
I am fluent in English, Hindi and Fijian Hindi. I truly believe that ‘the future depends on what we do in the present’! You can reach me at Barfoot & Thompson Howick regarding any property matters and a convivial chat.
We started looking for a house just before the first Covid Lockdown. The market blew up and it became challenging for buyers. We reached out to four agencies, as well as past salespeople we had done business with. Once they heard our budget we never heard back, or we were told there was nothing in our budget range after only one to two days of talking.
Then four months ago we met Sheik. We told him our budget upfront and expected him to run. Surprisingly, it didn’t faze him. Sheik kept in touch frequently. During the week he would send us properties to consider, and he came to open homes with us.
From the start his approach was honest communication and genuine care, about what was important to us. Sheik’s commitment to stay active was encouraging and it took a lot of pressure off us having that help.
We will definitely use Sheik again and have no hesitation recommending him to our family and friends.Jasmine & Paul
