When it comes to buying and selling property, you are often dealing with your biggest financial asset. This means you need to have a real estate salesperson guiding you that you know you can trust; someone who will put themselves in your shoes, and treat that property like it's their own.
This is what I aim to do for my clients. I am passionate about property, and my goal is to provide exceptional service to all who I have the privilege of working with. My commitment to you is simple: go above and beyond expectations to deliver you the best possible outcome, and make the whole process a stress-free and enjoyable one.
Ever since I was young, I've had a keen interest in property. Over the past seventeen years, I've been involved in personal real estate transactions several times. Each time, I've thought to myself that it would be a great industry to work in. Around four years ago, when my kids both went off to school, I finally decided to make the move into real estate; since then, my business has gone from strength to strength.
I firmly believe that the reason my client base and reputation have grown is down to the connections I build with people. Listening, understanding and communicating with my clients are all key components to my success. Remaining open minded, I try to make sure I always understand your requirements and deliver on them.
Honesty is another key trait of mine. I am committed to being one hundred percent transparent with you throughout the buying and selling process, and will not sugar coat.
In my spare time, I enjoy dabbling in interior design. We are currently undergoing renovations inside and out on our Franklin property. This is the third we have renovated now, having done up two villas prior to living in our current home. The process can be a ton of hard work, but all the time and effort pays off when you see the finished result. I'm more than happy to share this knowledge with you to help you prepare your property for the market!
If you are looking for a friendly professional to help you take the next step towards your property goals, get in touch with me today. I'm more than happy to talk you through the process of buying and selling.
Sarah recently handled the sale of what had been my first home. From the beginning, she was friendly and helpful and I really appreciated her professionalism and advice every step along the way. As I was no longer living locally, she really went above-and-beyond - initially negotiating with the tenants, organising every little detail at the time of preparing the house for viewings, right through to some last minute requests from the new buyers the day before settlement. She made it a relatively low-stress process for me, and ultimately, I was very pleased with the final outcome. Would 100% recommend!Lynelle Taylor
In a time of uncertainty particularly with the Covid-19 restrictions and managing the marketing of our property around all the protocols, Sarah and Trudy both were extremely professional and considerate towards all the variables to manage and keep all parties happy (both buyers and sellers). We are grateful for their ongoing professionalism in these times and the smooth sale of the property. We would highly recommend both parties for their thorough attention to detail and vibrant nature. What a great experience!Craig Johnson & Allesha Green - Blackbridge Road, Karaka
A difficult sales process made easy due to the professionalism of Sarah.
Sarah has provided us with a wealth of knowledge in regards to the sale process of our two properties. This was not an easy process, and Sarah took away much of the stress, particularly as we had never sold a property before. Sarah was available to talk to at any time, including after hours, and never made us feel like we were a nuisance. Sarah has exceptional people skills and always took time to listen and was genuinely interested in what we had to say. We would highly recommend Sarah to any potential clients. Thank you, Sarah.Maurice & Colleen Connors
Like a cat on catnip, Sarah went above-and-beyond. She cajoled our grumpy tenant, brought some great offers to the table and handled the rejection till we got the offer we were after and all with a good laugh and smile. Couldn't have asked for more. Thanks Sarah, top job!Justine & Waverly Jones - Arimu Road, Papakura
Thanks for being our "agent of choice" and achieving such a great result for us. We greatly appreciated your professionalism and knowledge in guiding us through the process, and loved your naturally confident attitude and generous nature. Would certainly have no hesitation in recommending you and your "winning" ways to anyone wanting results.Fred & Terryn Birdling
When we met Sarah at an open home, she took our details and said she would let us know if anything came up. I expected not to hear from her again as I had been to lots of open homes where my number was taken ......
But Sarah called the next day and this set the ball in motion to purchase our first home. Being a very stressful process, we couldn’t have asked for a more dedicated, down-to-earth and genuine person to take us through step by step. Sarah made herself available for calls, property visits and advice at any time of day OR night. She makes you feel like you are her only client and gives you the confidence to rest easy with such a significant life decision.
Sarah “hand held” us through to the point of arranging a moving company at 10pm because we needed to move before the expected lockdown (V2).
We can’t thank her enough for the amazing service and genuine interest shown in the purchase of our home.
She is super friendly, easy to deal with and we would recommend her with a 10/10 rating!!Sagren & Ludicia Govender
It is always a pleasure working with Sarah. We find her to be very organised, completely trustworthy, honest and professional to deal with. Sarah is always very approachable and takes care of every detail making the process simple and straightforward. If you’re looking for a friendly and knowledgeable real estate salesperson we would highly recommend Sarah and the team at Barfoot & Thompson Pukekohe.AMMA Construction Limited
We find Sarah to be hardworking, straightforward and honest to deal with in all our property transactions. Sarah always goes the extra mile and helps us to prepare and present our homes in the best possible way. We are always kept up-to-date with any developments during the buying and selling process. Sarah is always a pleasure to deal with and we would happily recommend her to anyone looking for a real estate agent.Outlook Homes Limited
Sarah. Thank you for helping us find our investment home. You were always very professional and we felt under no pressure to purchase. We would certainly recommend you to anyone wanting to buy or sell a property, and we would come back to you in the future. Thank you.Ian & Dyanne Schofield
Thanks Sarah for taking the stress out of selling our house - you were extremely helpful and made the whole process very easy. Thanks for being so honest (and patient!), and for guiding us through everything, as we were clueless without you! Thanks again.Steve & Mel Birch
A huge thanks to Sarah for being a wonderful agent. She made the process of purchasing my first house smooth, fun and stress-free. Sarah did not come across as a pushy salesperson, instead she was honest, helpful and didn't try to rush my decision-making-process which was refreshing especially since we have been to many open homes. I highly recommend selling or buying through Sarah and will be recommending her to my friends and family.Brittany Gillespie
We would highly recommend Sarah Kemp to anyone that is looking to buy or sell. We gave Sarah a short time frame to sell our home with a price that we wanted. Within that time Sarah achieved the price within the timeline we set. Sarah listened to us and worked for us in a professional way. Sarah Kept us informed through the process and was available when we needed her. It was a pleasure to have Sarah as our agent.Angela & Andy Finlayson
Sarah was a pleasure to work with. She helped us identify our selling goals and clarify our action plan and then, she gave us great advice for staging the house etc. She kept us regularly informed throughout the sales process. Sarah was very easy to deal with and made the process as stress-free and effortless as possible - thanks Sarah!Nick Reed
We want to thank you for what was an extremely positive experience in the sale of our home. Sarah was enthusiastic, down to earth and professional. We will gladly and confidently recommend you to any of our friends, family and acquaintances and hopefully seek your services again in the near future.Jaime and Joe
We can't thank you enough for your professionalism, expertise, and hard work in helping us find our home in Pukekohe. We love our new home, the neighbourhood, and the community!
Sarah is amazingly responsive. The poor lady ALWAYS made herself available, and does so without a note of hesitation in her voice. She gave us the sense that she really enjoys what she does (which, unfortunately for her, may lead clients to take advantage of her generosity with her time... as no doubt we did).
Throughout this whole process, Sarah has really felt like a friend. We all know the kind of person who pretends to be very friendly to clients. But Sarah is real.
Our hope now is that Sarah is representative of the people we will find living around us in the Pukekohe area. We know this is an unrealistically high hope.
But at least we're happy to know that we'll see her driving around our neighbourhood, and that we can stop her from time to time to catch for a coffee or wine with our new family friend.
When looking for an agent to sell our property, like most people we arranged for several appraisals with different companies. After meeting Sarah we knew straight away who we wanted to market our property. Sarah was very helpful, patient and easy to talk to. She explained everything clearly and helped us with ideas for presenting our home for sale. With a young family it's difficult to keep a house spotless for viewings, and Sarah understood this ensuring we had plenty of notice prior to any viewings. We were kept informed after all viewings, and were very impressed with the detailed report e-mailed to us after the open homes. We found Sarah's honesty refreshing and would definitely recommend her to anyone looking to sell their property.Declan & Michelle Phelan
Sarah Kemp has been an absolute pleasure to deal with through the process of selling our property in Pukekohe. Right from the initial appraisal, through the listing process and the marketing of the property, she has paid great attention to the small details, been friendly and personable to deal with, and has made the process easy. Nothing has seemed to be too much trouble, and she has shown great service, even when the sale came through another agent. This is testament to her true professionalism.Phil & Liesel Hanson
Sarah sold our Investment Rental property. From the outset, Sarah was extremely helpful, friendly and courteous. We found her to have a good knowledge of the Pukekohe area and was well informed of prospective purchasers. Nothing was too much trouble for her and she travelled from her home in the Pukekohe area to our then property at Pakuranga to explain the selling process. Our sale proceeded well and we had no problems at all. I would certainly recommend her to any person either looking to purchase or about to sell. Sarah was referred to us by our daughter as she has also sold our daughters Investment Property.Kay and Neal Cranston
We hadn't been looking forward to selling our house because of previous experiences we have had with Real Estate Agents but Sarah was a real breath of fresh air. She took her time to explain all the in's and out's and listened to what we wanted. Sarah had complete faith in selling the house and that she did within 6 days of being on the market. The whole process was made easy and enjoyable thanks to Sarah's friendly yet straight up approach to selling. We have no problem recommending Sarah to friends or family and would happily sell/purchase with Sarah again in the future. Thank you again Sarah.Leigh and Amanda Pearce
We would be happy to recommend Sarah to anyone looking to buy or sell Real Estate. Sarah would work with both parties to reach an outcome which is the best interests of everyone. Sarah assists all parties in negotiation through , professional and friendly. Sarah was always contactable during the sale of our property..
Thanks again Sarah we cannot speak highly enough of you.
