Shahina Oberoi - Associate Salesperson
#4 Sales Partnership, Eastern Beaches Region, 6 months ending September 2019
With more than 25 years as a Producer and Director of TV commercials and having owned my own business, I have perfected the art of bespoke marketing programmes for my clients’ properties. My attention to detail is exemplary and my advertising attracts a lot of attention. You will find it to be neatly packaged and targeted to the right audience.
My negotiating skills are of the highest standard and my clients feel that I have achieved the best possible price for their property.
I enjoy real estate and it shows. My sense of humour and my thorough and friendly approach, gives my clients confidence in my ability.
Most importantly, I carry the stress, not my clients!
Ably supporting Anil, I bring my business and digital acumen to real estate. These skills blend beautifully with my exemplary negotiating skills. This is a carry-over from my prior experience as a businesswoman in customer service. On many occasions, I have been known to go the extra distance to put a deal together.
"Shahina is highly effective without being pushy."
I am a great listener and I am quick to learn, which makes me a fantastic negotiator. I will put a deal together where many would fall by the wayside.
I am an honest, genuine and highly regarded salesperson.
Our talents combine to create a powerhouse team with skills that are hard to match. Highly regarded by both clients and colleagues, we have years and years of experience and a track record that gives you confidence your property has achieved the best possible result.
I have known Shahina for a few years and requested her to sell my home once I was ready to move away.
My dealings with Shahina when selling my house were extremely professional and knowledgeable. Her dogged determination to follow through with opportunities has been exemplary. Thank you once again Shahina and Anil.
Very thorough and professional.
We found the knowledge of the sale process excellent and Anil and Shahina were very helpful during a difficult sales period.
Thank you Shahina & Anil for looking after us throughout the sale of our home. Shahina's continual contact and genuine interest to assist when we were ready to sell, made her our first choice as a real estate salesperson. Shahina and Anil communicated every step of the way with us and we took her advice graciously. They are very professional in all areas of real estate. We would totally recommend Shahina and Anil to anyone in the future who requires fantastic real estate salespeople.Kay Summersby
Good help in selling our house in a toughening market
Thanks to Anil and Shahina for helping us sell our house in a tough market. They stuck with us and got the job done!
I chose Barfoot & Thompson to list my property, because of the communication I've had with Shahina and Anil over many years. The regular newsletters and annual phone calls kept me up-to-date with what was happening in the housing market. From the outset, the salespeople were professional and encouraging, yet realistic about pricing and selling in todays market. There was no pressure to sell. Their attention to detail and approachability made it an easy process for me. Everything went like clockwork to an agreed timeline. The property was sold a week after being passed in at auction. Transparency regarding Barfoot & Thompsons fees are commendable. I would highly recommend this company for selling a property.Adriana Johanna Maria Goile
Shahina and Anil have extensive knowledge of real estate and the Pakuranga district through their many years working here. During the whole selling process they were determined to achieve the very best outcome for me. They had good working relationships with all parties because of their great communication skills, competence and trustworthiness. They are very special, exceptional salespeople.Laurel Teklich
Fabulous real estate salespeople
Two years ago, Shahina and Anil did an appraisal on my townhouse. I was so impressed, that I asked them to list my property recently. From the outset, they were professional and encouraging, yet realistic about pricing and selling by auction in today's market. There was no pressure and the marketing was amazing. Their attention to detail and approachability made it easy for me. Everything went like clockwork to an agreed timeline. Shahina and Anil are a wonderful team and they know the real estate market well. I have no hesitation in recommending them.Adriana Goile
Shahina and Anil were fantastic advisors right from the get-go. Their combined knowledge of market trends, statistics and marketing prove to be invaluable. They have a proactive approach yet worked within my needs and input. I have been in the building industry for over 50 years and could not recommend them enough. They are results driven and what had been a very long road due to council approvals, they had my house sold within weeks, well before the scheduled auction date.Tom Schreuder
We found Anil and Shahina Oberoi to be very pleasant to deal with. They were always available, very competent and nothing was too much trouble. We can sincerely recommend their services without any reservations.Vidak Druskovich
Our priorities are simple. They are yours!” In our experience with Shahina and Anil, this statement couldn’t be truer and perfectly describes every interaction we have had with them. They invested a huge amount of time and energy into helping us navigate the home buying and selling processes. All the way through they shared some very valuable insights based on their combined decades of experience. They went well above-and-beyond to patiently guide us with their professional approach. Unlike many other salespeople we’ve encountered, no disparaging or underhanded remarks were made about other salespeople or their efforts. They were not pushy and no attempts were made to coerce us. They have a very upfront and honest manner. They took the time to understand what we were looking for, how we think and how we work. It reached the point that they were anticipating our next request. They explained that these personal connections with their clients, helped them achieve the best outcomes for us as both buyers and sellers.
Even now, at the tail end of our house trading, they continue to offer tremendous support and helped us with neighbourly disagreements and anything else we were cheeky enough to ask for. Looking at their previous success stories and current listings, they are clearly busy salespeople working on behalf of many families like us, but we genuinely felt like we were their only client and sole priority.
It has been an absolute pleasure to work with Shahina and Anil over the few years they have patiently worked with us. It is at the point that there is a space to fill in our lives now that we are no longer buying, selling and leaning on Shahina and Anil for help.
We cannot recommend Shahina and Anil highly enough for a professional, honest and entirely supportive experience. We look forward to working with them again in the future."Kristin Giudici-Dean - Dec, 2021
Anil and Shahina are excellent salespeople and consider everything. They discuss all the plans that will be important to you, and give you advice on the reasons they know that it will be the best way to sell your home. They are very professional in this type of business and become more than an salesperson. They become really good friends that you can rely on and trust to do the very best for you and to make sure you are happy and certain about how the sale of your house is going to be listed and marketed. I have no doubt at all that I chose the best salespeople and would recommend them to anyone who is looking for excellent service.Gleny Phillips
Thank you Anil & Shahina for helping us secure our new home!
We recently purchased off Anil & Shahina and they were lovely to deal with. They are a friendly team with a good sense of humour, yet at the same time professional with great communication.
"We found Shahina and Anil very easy and professional to deal with. Their communication was very good at all times and they made the sale of our house the most stress-free sale we have ever had. We would recommend them to anyone looking for professional, friendly and courteous service.Catherine & Nolan
Excellent Service Dream Team!
We are very thankful to Anil and Shahina for providing us with excellent customer service. They gave us honest advice throughout the sale process. They guided us through each step to make informed decisions with clear, precise and timely communication. Very professional and knowledgeable regarding how we should market our property with regard to the current market situation.
Shahina and Anil were fantastic. Always available, always honest and genuinely want to do what is best for their vendor.Jeni & Bruce Jackson
Shahina and Anil went above-and-beyond to help us with the sale of our house and kept us informed every step of the way. Anil and Shahina’s knowledge and communication to us was excellent and the support they gave us was incredible.Carol & Brian Green
Realistic appraisal, didn’t over inflate what place was worth, but was pleasantly surprised when, with great marketing and negotiating skills, we got a real WOW price! Salespeople were never pushy and explained everything to us.
Barfoot & Thompson are a genuine company with good values but still achieve in the competitive sales market.Margaret & Barry O'Brien
Made it easy
The sale of my property has gone with out a hitch. Shahina and Anil are good people and helped me all the way.
Many thanks to both Anil and Shahina, for not just their professionalism and up-to-date knowledge of the housing market, but for their kindness and easy going nature, which meant that looking for properties was not as stressful as it could have been.Liz Baker
Anil and Shahina are a great team to work with - very diligent and always available. We were very happy with the way the entire process went and the result that was achieved.Ryan Pheloung - Vendor
Excellence All The Way
From day one to completion, Shahina and Anil provided excellence in communication, marketing, information and relationship management. They work seamlessly as a team, know their area and their industry. We were delighted to work with them and wouldn’t hesitate to do so again.
Thanks to Anil’s eye for detail re presentation, photography and staging of our house, and Shahina’s negotiating skills, we were able to sell our home quicker and for a higher price than we could have imagined. Both Anil and Shahina had very good communication skills and kept us informed the whole time. If we ever needed a real estate salesperson , we would definitely use them again.Margaret & Barry O'Brien
Two words - Complete Package
Anything you could ever ask from a salesperson - dedication, professionalism, patience, effort, time, care and respect for both the vendors and buyers making life perfect for both parties. 11/10 - more than what we could have ever asked for!
From the beginning I noticed that they were working for me. They advised what would help to sell the house but left me to make the choice. I had a few issues, and I felt no pressure as I held back the sale till I was ready. When the time was ready for sale they did what they did to receive an amazing result. They are not just real estate salespeople, they are friends. If you want success in the sale your house, use the team Anil and Shahina.
Shahina and Anil were excellent real estate agents. Their communication and focus on our behalf was exemplary. Right through the whole listing and auction process their advice was outstanding and their market feedback was honest. Their final analysis perfectly “on the money”. I would thoroughly recommend their services. We will certainly use them again.Richard & Joy
We recently sold our beautiful home in Farm Cove after 29 years. Thank goodness we chose Anil and Shahina Oberoi as our real estate salespeople - they were amazing!! They were so professional, trustworthy and very up-front answering all our questions honestly and openly. They made selling our home as stress-free as possible and the whole process ran very smoothly from start to finish.
Thank you so much to both of you.John & Helen Culpan - Farm Cove
We have known Shahina and Anil for the past four and during this period we have purchased a property and sold two through them. Shahina and Anil represent Barfoot & Thompson at their Pakuranga branch. Their policy is:
"WE WORK FOR OUR CLIENTS IN EVERY WAY AS IF WE WERE THE CLIENT OURSELVES. NEED WE SAY MORE?!"
We found the policy was absolutely accurate and not just something they use as an advertising slogan. They both are so sincere and honest in their approach and achieving the best for their client. Shahina and Anil in all property transactions worked hard and exceeded our expectations on all counts.
They will always be our first choice in real estate salespeople if we have a need in the future.Trevor Smith & Janice Smith
In 2010 our son bought his home through the agency of Barfoot & Thompson where Anil and Shahhina acted as salespeople for the vendors. We were all surprised and impressed by their efficiency in making sure the sale went through, even though it maybe said that they were on the opposite side of the fence.
In 2013, when we had three properties ourselves to sell, we felt comfortable enough to ask them to act as our salespeople. Relying on their marketing advice, the first property went through auction and drew a great response, realising a sale price significantly more than we expected and at the very top of the market. The second property was a unit in a block of over 30 others where the price would normally fall within a narrow band. However, Anil and Shahina again showed their abilities and experience; at one stage there were three offers on the table! Again we achieved a result well above our expectations.
We have no hesitation in recommending Anil and Shahina. Their marketing, professionalism and ability to interact with potential buyers is outstanding and we wish them well.Keith & Lyn Alford
Shahina and Anil are always professional, they take the time to ensure everyone is happy with their results. A potentially stressful time, alleviated by their friendly, helpful and knowledgeable approach. A husband and wife team who complement one another in their work ethic. A very successful partnership. I would have no hesitation in recommending them both or putting their services to use in the future. Thank you guys for getting the best results, all round.Cherie Spence
We had a fixed time-line to sell our house, as we were committed in buying a new property. We hired Anil and Shahina to help in the sale of our home and we were very pleased and satisfied with the results. We found them very professional and with a great understanding of the real estate market, property value, marketing, legal formalities and closing the deal. Anil and Shahina were very efficient, knowledgeable and placed client satisfaction as a priority. We would highly recommend them both and wouldn't hesitate to use them in the future.
Thank you Anil and Shahina for all your hard work and dedication in the sale and success of our home.
Anil and Shahina became close friends of mine, after we did some business with them. We had many great times together. They have helped me to buy my lovely house and helped sell my husband's house in Auckland. They are very professional and extremely easy to deal with.Daisy Harrison
From the moment we met them they were very warm and friendly. With their recommendation we agreed to auction our house which they said we'd have no trouble selling and within a week it was sold. They were professional and kept us informed every step of the way. We would highly recommend them to anyone looking to sell or buy. We would definitely use them again.Clare and Rob Schreuder
We decided to place our house on the market during winter not knowing if this decision was the right one. We approached Anil and Shahina from Barfoot & Thompson as they had sold our neighbours house in a couple of days and have been selling in our area for quite some time. Right from day one Anil and Shahina made us feel very comfortable with our decision, they are a couple who bounce off each other which makes them the perfect team. We were in for the long haul to get our place sold and knew we were in good hands but at the time we didn't know how good. Anil said to us I think we may get multiple offers on this place, we joked and said can you repeat that so we can record it. (How right he was!)
Our first open home came around and on the second day we get an offer. WOW! two days later we get a backup offer. WOW AGAIN and the rest is history. SOLD within a week.
If we ever got back onto the market I would not hesitate to have Anil and Shahina in our corner.
Thank you so much Anil and Shahina.
We were not quite ready to sell when Shahina first contacted us. 2 month's later we were very impressed that Anil and Shahina Oberoi had given us the space we had requested. They took us through the process of selling our house which was very informative. We had heard that selling a house could be stressful but with their professionalism and light hearted moments this was not the case. They were both brilliant on selling our place and extremely pleasant to deal with. We would highly recommend them to those looking to sell their house.Anne, Roger & Nigel Mendham
I had the pleasure of having Shahina and Anil as my realtors when we were struggling to sell our house in Farm Cove. It had been listed with another agency with no success. Shahina and Anil took charge, developed a more appropriate marketing plan and worked extensively to get the best price in a timely manner for our property. When it sold we were thrilled, especially when they took me to view what became my current home on the next street! They made the transition between properties stress free and easy. What sets Shahina and Anil are apart from other realtors I have dealt with is their customer focus; their regular - and on time - helpful updates for clients throughout the buying and selling process and their on the pulse knowledge of the Eastern Suburbs housing market and wider trends. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Shahina and Anil if you are seeking to either sell your home or buy a new one.Joanne Jalfon
We are very happy to recommend Shahina and Anil. Their professionalism, skills, knowledge, efficiency and attention to detail is of the highest standard. Everything progressed smoothly, from listing, staging and marketing through to sale and documentation. They make a great team.Sharron and Charles Rhodes
We were just looking into selling our property, when we came across Shahina - perfect timing! Shahina and Anil then came with their appraisal and a great sales plan and we were very happy with their recommendations. They were very thorough and answered all our questions. We found them to be personable yet professional! Everything went smoothly from the marketing to the quick sale. We were pleased with the results and managed to get into our new home before Christmas thanks to the success of their hard work. Many Thanks.Grace and Matthew Vine
"We were very impressed with the way in which Shahina and Anil engaged us in the sale process of our home. They were honest, trustworthy and extremely professional in their approach. During a very uncertain and stressful time for us, they provided reassurance and made themselves available in any instance we needed them. They were extremely dedicated and worked endless hours following up on any leads of potential buyers, and thought outside of the square when it came to the marketing of our property. We are pleased to have had them on our side, and will continue the friendship that has been established. We would be happy to recommend them to any potential vendors that are seeking agents with top knowledge and experience in the real estate industry."Amanda and Norm Delaney
It was such a pleasure to have Anil & Shahina market our home. Barfoot & Thompson's service and knowledge of the local market definitely exceeded our expectations. We were extremely happy with their dedication and professional approach to selling our property, and would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone looking to sell their home.
We have been very impressed overall, and the Barfoot system of selling a property wins hands down.
I enlisted Anil and Shahina Oberoi to sell my Farm Cove property after a disappointing period with another real estate company. I was immediately impressed by their extremely high degree of professionalism and their focus on getting my property sold for the best price possible. Their honest feedback after each Open Home ensured i was kept up to date throughout the sale process. They are both an extremely hard working and experienced couple with a thorough understanding of the local property market. I was relieved when they removed as much stress as possible from the entire process. I have no hesitation in recommending them to future sellers and would certainly utilise their services again.Jo Jalfon
Recently Anil and Shahina sold our house. We found them to be enthusiastic and hard working agents. They make a great team. Shahina is a great negotiator while Anil works hard at constantly monitoring the market and tailoring our marketing requirements accordingly. They are pleasant to deal with, communicate well and frequently, and have a great sense of humour. We would use them again.Marcelle and David Sutton
Thank you so much for bringing about a successful sale of my home. You have such an honest, friendly and yet, respectful approach, it is a pleasure working with you and has made what is such a stressful time, more manageable. We have had many chats over the years, Shahina and always you have respected my thoughts, feelings and timing for when i was ready to sell this house, so i am so happy that the sale was successful with one of your clients. All the very best to you both and your family.'Pam Robertson
Anil and Shahina, Thank you once again for a great effort and result. Your wise counsel in these matters is always greatly appreciated.You are certainly the go to people as far as we are concerned.Rod and Rae
Janice and I have had several dealings with Anil and Shahina and on every occassion they have exceeded our expectations. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to friends and potential clients.Janice and Trevor Smith Howe Street, Howick
Majority of my dealings were with Shahina Oberoi (Anil's wife) although I did meet Anil in the first meeting in their Pakuranga office. I had a good experience as to the information about the market, current market trends, advertising and It's options etc basically straight from scratch to final settlement. I am very satisfied with the entire process and of course very happy with the final outcome which was a great price for our property which was above our expectations. Would definitely be in touch regarding real estate with Shahina and Anil Oberoi in future. Many thanks for your help. Kind regardsYogesh Doshi
We met this couple about 5 yrs ago. They kept contact, without pressurizing us. Regularly Christmas cards, notes and contact. Very impressed. They are both very good, deliver and keep you fully informed. We are moving countries, however, I will pass their names on to all my friends who are interested in selling as I know
with confidence, they will receive the very best information and help there is. We are very happy with their service. Well done and all the best.
Anil and Shahina were a delight to work with during the marketing and auction of our property. Nothing was too much trouble and we developed a great relationship. I would highly recommend them as a sales team.Andrew & Stephanie Russell Caithness Pl
SHAHINA & ANIL Oberoi were fantastic agents for us. To be honest we feel they are the best agents in the market right now. Helpful, understanding our needs, and very encouraging that our home was going to sell. We wish to extend our heartfelt gratitude to the both of them and wish them more and more success as the years go by. Thank youCraig & Rose Stanniland Street

They will always be our first choice in real estate agents if we have a need in the future.
We have known Anil & Shahina for the past 3 years whilst they have been working for the Pakuranga branch of Barfoot & Thompson.
We have found them to be very honest and trustworthy.They have sold 2 family homes for us during this period and they have
conducted our campaigns very conscientiously and enthusiastically. We enjoyed working with Anil & Shahina and they would be our first
choice should we need to sell or buy property again. Should a verbal reference be required we would be happy to be
contacted and we wish Anil & Shahina all the very best for the future.
Anil & Shahina have the vendors interest at heart. They worked for us as a team and we felt they were batting in our court all the way. Shahina, in particular, was worth
her weight in gold
Mr & Mrs Mitchell Galloway Crescent
Anil and Shahina were a delight to deal with.They sold us or first home so I made sense we went back to them to sell. Their knowledge and skills in the property market is amazing. Would highly recommended them to anyone
Awesome Marketing Campaign.Awesome! Real Estate Agents to work with. Awesome result of the number of prospective buyers who visited our property due to
the excellent marketing strategy and execution thereof that strategy.Throughout our house sale campaign we experienced Anil's and Shahina's,
dedication, enthusiasm and good humour, which made the sale of our house an exciting experience, rewarding us with a better than expected result.
There is always room for improvement but cannot fault their strategy, marketing & personal contact with Margaret & I.
Their local knowledge of the dynamics of the area was an added bonus for the campaign. We have no hesitation in recommending Anil & Shahina Oberoi to any prospective vendor.
Thanks Anil & Shahina for your professional advice and the rapport that we had. Thanks Barfoot and Thompson for the support your other local Real Estate agents
gave to the marketing and viewing of our property. From our perspective it appeared to be a great team effort!
After searching for months for the perfect house we finally found it, and Anil & Shahina made the process easy and exciting! The were professional
at all times, able to assist us promptly when required and were friendly and approachable. I would recommend them to anyone looking to sell or buy,
I cannot praise Shahina and Anil enough. They constantly kept me up to date with all information on what had sold and what the market was doing .They came to talk to me in person when ever I asked a question. The Open Homes were run with the minimum disruption to our daily lives - a real must when you have an 84 year old in the house. Nothing was left to chance and all information was written down after every Open House . There manner and enthusiasm was infectious . They were always encouraging and smiling when I was filled with doubt. They even helped to fill and hang flower baskets. I would not hesitate to have them sell for myself again and would recommend them to all my friends. In fact I would love to keep them as friends.Yvonne Mcnabb
Anil has been an absolute professional regarding the sale of my Dad's unit. The communication between us has been wonderful and I knew all along where we were at. I would have no hesitattion recommending him to anyone as he knows the area and the market so well.Mrs Alleyne Greenhalgh Glenmore Road
"It has been reassuring to discover that in today's fast paced society, it is still possible to trust ones major investment (your home) to real estate professionals with honesty, integrity and the confidence to market your home to achieve the best possible price in the current market.
We have no hesitation therefore in recommending Anil & Shahina Oberoi of Barfoot & Thompson, Pakuranga Branch as your first choice when making a real estate decision."
"We are writing this testimonial in relation to our experience with both Shahina and Anil Oberoi, during the marketing and sale of our property. My husband and I hold the Oberoi's in very high regard. Anil and Shahina worked very hard for us in not only selling our property but also in looking for another. We found them both to be extremely professional in their approach and presentation, and in the way in which they stayed in contact on a daily basis to keep us informed of all goings on. Karl and I were quite astounded at the number of people who were shown through our home in a week. Karl has a lot of experience in selling homes and had not previously experienced the kind of volume of people coming through. We were very impressed by the style and effectiveness of Shahina and Anils marketing. I would aslo like to add that Shahina and Anil have been very easy to work with, and are genuinely very nice people, with a good sense of humour. They have been very confident and efficient in their jobs and we are very happy to have the opportunity of writing this testimonial for them."Jennifer & Karl Dawson
