Joining the team at Mt Eden as a Property Management Administrator was a natural progression for me, after my Property Management role for a high net worth couple concluded after five years. I oversaw multiple projects across their portfolio of properties in New Zealand and abroad. Way back, I worked in the telecommunications and hospitality industries in roles which helped me to hone my customer service skills.
Choosing to work for Barfoot & Thompson was an easy decision. They are a pre-eminent brand with good old-fashioned values.
In my spare time I enjoy walking my dog Eboney who is thoroughly spoilt! I love frequenting cafés and sharing good food and wine with friends. Whenever I get the chance I like to travel. South East Asia is a favourite destination - I love the food, the people, the culture and especially the climate!
When you visit our Mount Eden branch, I can help with most things concerning Property Management. I am primarily responsible for carrying out inspections of properties and manage maintenance and repairs.
I wanted to send a huge thank you and let you know how much I appreciate everything you help me with at 28a.
As we know, the property has had significant challenges which have been incredibly frustrating but you are brilliant at chasing along. From garage doors, laundry pumps, failing lights, leaky windows and now dishwasher and oven replacements, nothing is too much for you to chase along and resolve.
As a busy working mum, I need stuff to work and despite the challenges (so many challenges with this property!!), I love being able to have a quick chat or flick a text and you just go about resolving the issues. You happily chase everything along, clearly negotiate with the landlord, keep me updated, so I wanted to say a big thank you. Thank you for being awesome, thank you for negotiating with the landlord and mostly thank you for always being cheerful and super helpful. You are an amazing property manager and I’d absolutely recommend you to any tenant or landlord.
Steven Longland managed to find tenants in the last moment before the Lockdown. We are very happy with his service, he is a very professional, responsive and easygoing person.
Steven is simply amazing as a Property Management Administrator and a person.Valentina & George
