Commercial property and connecting with people are the two things I am most enthusiastic about. My particular area of expertise lies in leasing property within the Auckland city fringe, and I have a growing portfolio of satisfied clients and successful transactions.
During my 20 years in the industry, I have specialised in commercial real estate. My business was founded on developing strong relationships with property owners and tenants. It is with pride that I place my core values of honesty and integrity at the forefront of how I do business and how I care for my clients.
I am organized, thorough, candid and always 100% professional. I believe this is the reason why I am often sought out for repeat business. This includes when landlords have their tenants move, when tenants’ space requirement changes, or when owners want to sell their property.
My initial introduction to commercial was with high profile companies in Auckland. I am proud to say I have been a loyal member of the Barfoot & Thompson Commercial team for over 14 years.
When I'm not talking about property, I enjoy walking, weekend getaways to our holiday place, overseas travel and reading.

When I came to you for help to find the unicorn of properties in the Auckland central market, you didn't flinch. You set about presenting me with the best options available for my organisation, and were not once challenged by the myriad of requirements that needed to be satisfied. I know that you work for the landlord, but I never once felt that you weren't equally trying to help my organisation. To future tenants and landlords, you are in the hands of a true professional.
I wish to offer my appreciation to you for the wonderful result you achieved in leasing our property on Taylor's Road. You achieved for us, excellent rental and commitment from the tenant which assisted towards the upgrades to suit his needs. The length of lease and limited holiday period was much appreciated. Thank you for all your support and I look forward to dealing with you on future occasions. It was a pleasure to do business with you.
"I would like to thank Sue for her professional manner and friendly approach to helping us secure a good tenant on a good lease.

"Sue. I would like to thank you for your efforts in concluding a lease for me at my property at 29 East St. It is not the first lease you have put together at East St. In fact you have been successful in concluding leases for me at different properties for a number of years. I appreciate the effort you put in on my behalf and the advice I have received from you over the years. On to the next one!"Jerry Hamlyn
"I have a very satisfied client who would like me to acknowledge what you have achieved. You found a commercial tenant for what is an older and quite unusual set of premises in Parnell which he thought would have been difficult to lease. You made it easy for him. Even when the deal was done we appreciated your follow up. You made sure that all aspects of the Lease were signed off and that both landlord and tenant were satisfied. No loose ends. You showed great attention to detail and our client has been the beneficiary of your care and attention."Neil Murray, Armstrong Murray, Solicitors, Takapuna
"Many thanks for all your hard work bringing this sublease to a satisfactory conclusion.
You have handled the process in a very professional manner with great attention to detail.
Our directors and I would like to extend our thanks to you, and look forward to meeting you if you do make it to Christchurch for a visit."
"I first contacted Sue in early 2004 when I required a small office to set up an Auckland based sales team. She was fantastic to deal with and everything went smoothly. 8 years on and we had well and truly out-grown our office. It was time to move. I still had Sue's contact details and called her. After listening to what I wanted, knowing our existing business and asking a few questions, very quickly she was able to put together a list of properties she considered suitable and e-mailed them to me. I whittled them down to a short-list and from there Sue drove me to view all of them.
After about 10 days, the deal was done and we're now in a larger office that is well and truly suited to our current and future requirements. Once again, Sue didn't disappoint. Her ability to understand commercial requirements and keep the process flowing is a true testament to her success and the reason why I chose to deal with her again."
