#7 Sales Partnership, Eastern Beaches Region, to end March 2020
Steve Noles was born in Malta into a Royal Navy family and educated in the UK. In 1998 he moved to New Zealand with Sheanagh and their three children. They established their new home in Howick.
Steve successful career started in engineering and soon developed into a sales career. Achieving great rewards, having his own business and using those skills to work with international communication companies, running teams and growing business accounts in New Zealand.
Steve says, "Communications and marketing have been a fundamental part of my development and have assisted me in setting up strong relationships, which are so important when building trust with clients. In real estate we all want to trust the people we work with when negotiating and managing one of our biggest assets."
From an early age Steve knew that sales and service was an area he found highly rewarding and very soon it was clear that becoming a market leader could be achieved by offering a level of service that clients deserved, this brings repeat business and referrals. Barfoot & Thompson offer the ability to grow and deliver that level of excellence.
When relaxing Steve enjoys watching his family become great people and following his driving passion with a convertible sports car. This was one of his ambitions that proved, if you work hard enough you can fulfil dreams.
Music and community service play a big part in his life. Playing the drums in a local band and at Church, helps him relax and being involved in many local community projects helps for a better understanding of changes and development in the area.
"We look forward to the opportunity to help you achieve your real estate goals and dreams in buying, selling, investing or simply building a new lifestyle.
Exceeded Our Expectations
My wife and I would like to thank Barfoot & Thompson and in particular Steve and Sheanagh Noles and Gene Cilliers for exceeding our expectations on the sale of our property on Clydesdale Avenue, achieving an extremely good price at auction. All three of them worked hard during the auction process, marketing our property to its best advantage and kept us fully informed all the way. Without them we don’t think we would have had such a success. We would strongly recommend Steve, Sheanagh and Gene to anyone looking to sell their property, as they are a truly professional and tireless team.

Sheanagh provided a very detailed proposal when listing our property, excellent followup as we were constantly kept up to date with feedback from open homes and viewings and I was especially impressed by their followup with every agent and potential purchaser.
