I am originally from South Africa and in 1990 I met this wonderful Kiwi bloke Paul. We married in 1995 and eventually decided that New Zealand was where we would like to bring up our children. We relocated to my husband's hometown in South Auckland in 2002 where my husband joined Barfoot & Thompson. With our two darling sons I started learning the kiwi culture and realised how important community is and just loved the Kiwi way. I was lucky enough to be a stay-at-home mum bringing up my boys in the wonderful neighbourhood of Wattle Downs. I began to get involved with several community organisations which I soon recognised were an essential part of keeping our neighbourhood safe and enhancing the beauty around us.
I am a qualified hotelier having completed the Hotel School with three years study. I worked in the industry and travelled extensively in South Africa. I believe I have a down-to-earth nature and my people skills are essential to any real estate transaction. I joined Barfoot & Thompson Manurewa in 2005, and quickly realised that I loved the real estate business. I have become a highly-respected and sought-after salesperson and have been lucky enough to achieve many excellence awards over the past 10 years.
I specialise in marketing and selling properties in the Manurewa and Wattle Downs area. I am actively involved in the community and stand as Vice Chairperson of the local Residents Association. I am also a great support for the local residents, businesses and schools, getting involved in all the galas, tree plantings and I head up the local newsletter for the Wattle Downs area. I am also involved in sponsoring the local golf club.
With an outstanding amount of experience behind me, I have a strong referral client base and feel I have the unique ability to bring purchaser and vendor together to create the perfect real estate transaction.

"We cannot thank Sue enough for all that she has done for us, in the selling of our home. Her explanations from start to finish have been outstanding, including her follow up to back agreements where other agents were involved. We were never left wondering what was to happen next, even when Sue was away on holiday, she contacted us at least twice, to ensure we were happy with what was happening. Nothing was ever too much trouble. Sue would pop in regularly or follow up the next move with a phone call. Her attention to detail and her knowledge of various situations made the whole process so much easier. We now know why Sue is Manurewa's Top Salesperson - A Real Estate 'Gem'."Tom & Linda Mcdonald
"Both Graham and I knew we had the best agent for selling our home. She lives in the area and knows it well. We were totally relaxed about what apparently is meant to be one of the most stressful things you will do in your life, sell and buy a home and that is due solely due to the relationship we built up with Sue. Seeing her in open homes and talking with her about what was happening in the market. We felt at ease knowing that nothing was a bother, she listened to what we wanted and worked with us and the result...outstanding. We got full asking price for our home."Denise and Graham Walker
"I contacted Sue to sell my investment property, wanting a quick result so I could move on and purchase again in another Auckland area. Sue gave me an appraisal within 1 day and photographed and listed with out delay. She was able to work with multiple buyers and obtained a great result for me within 2 weeks at the higher end of her market appraisal. Her updates and contact with me throughout the process were fantastic."Kath Jefferson
We picked Sue for her presence of local FOR SALE signs and her reputation in the market. She supports Reremoana School and Wattle Downs Golf. She is a credit to Barfoot & Thompson.Rob & Pat
"Sue Matete brought her "A" game with her when she listed our property. She went above and beyond what we had expected, She was very professional and made what could have been a very stressful process easy going. I would highly recommend her."Adam & Quesera
