Sejal is an extremely hardworking, knowledgeable and thorough real estate professional who my wife and I had the pleasure of working with recently when selling our home. We were introduced to Sejal through a very close friend's recommendation and this did not disappoint. This was our first experience of selling our home in the Auckland property market. When we first met Sejal her energy and genuine desire to get the best possible outcome for us came through immediately. Through that initial conversation she understood what we were looking to achieve with the sale, our unique circumstances given we were heading overseas permanently and setting realistic expectations for us of the current Auckland property market. Sejal took us through how she approached the marketing campaign and recommended some options to stage our home to put our best foot forward in a cooling market. We were blown away at how great our place looked on the video that was part of the online marketing. All this generated bumper open houses on each weekend and strong genuine interest from a few buyers. During this phase we made our journey overseas but Sejal's work didn't skip a beat especially with adjusting to new time zones and communication methods. Auction day was as tense as you'd expect and Sejal was again out there on the auction floor working hard for us. Through the auction process and in general, Sejal always gave her honest suggestions on what our options were then gave us the time and space to work out our final decision. Given the market conditions and us being overseas through the key phases of the selling process we were very pleased with the outcome Sejal delivered for us. Nishant
Sejal helped us to both buy our first home and then sell it a few years later. Both times she kept all our requirements in mind, explained very clearly what the process would be and kept up excellent communication through every stage of the buying and selling. Sejal is a very competent agent with a good knowledge of the market and real estate practices and at the same time accommodates client preferences and choices. She is completely professional and has the highest standard of integrity and work ethics. We have and will continue to recommend her to friends and family who want to sell or buy a home.Ranjini and Mohan
When deciding which company to list our mother's unit with, the decision was decided very quickly when Sejal showed an interest and gave a very professional presentation.
Sejal has to be the best real estate agent I have worked with. From the start, her communication skills were excellent. We were kept informed on what was happening at every step. If I contacted her, Sejal responded quickly.
Sejal also had a lovely respectful manner when dealing with our elderly mother. It was her honesty, communication skills, respectful manner and understanding of the industry at that particular time, that made her very easy to work with. The positive outcome at the end of the process I'm sure was attributed to her involvement.Christine Chambers
Thank you so much for all of your efforts selling our Lynfield property.
The way you explained the process and answered all of our questions put us at ease from day one.
Your communications with all parties when the first offer failed finance and the backup offer was activated were invaluable.
Will absolutely be recommending you to anyone buying or selling in the future.
Until next time John & Toka
Having now bought and sold our house in Auckland and having worked with Sejal both times, we thought we should express our thanks and appreciation to her in writing. We were first home buyers and although we knew we were going to buy via Barfoot & Thompson (they're the best real estate company in Auckland), we weren't sure of what agent to choose. Sejal was recommended by one of our close friends. We're really happy to have followed their advice as she was brilliant to deal with. She was easy to talk to, share concerns with and always found time for us. She explained the process in detail, there were no surprises and we found a beautiful house within our budget. When it was time to sell our first home, it wasn't an easy decision. It comes down to the owner being given a realistic valuation of their property and ensuring the agent you go with knows their stuff. Mayank and I have been extremely pleased with Sejal's attentiveness, communication, honesty and advice throughout the entire process while giving us heaps of emotional support.
Sejal went above & beyond her duties as a real estate agent in both instances for us. We would have no hesitation in recommending Sejal to anyone who is trying to decide between agents.Mayank and Shivani
Sejal Patel is one of the most professional realtors I have ever known and a pleasure to work with. Over the course of the last 2 months, I utilized her services for selling a home and would not hesitate recommending her. Throughout the entire selling process, Sejal was caring, creative, conscientious and motivated. Her work-ethic was extraordinary. She was easy to stay in contact with and would return emails, text and phone calls promptly. Often I would text her late hours and receive an immediate reply. I always felt as though I was her only client even though I knew she had a very busy schedule. Selling a home is stressful, especially when you live overseas (our property was located in Auckland, New Zealand and we reside in Melbourne, Australia) Sejal maintained an upbeat and positive attitude and constantly worked to ensure we were in the best position as a seller. When I initially contacted Sejal, she was very responsive without being pushy. She allowed me to work through the ups and downs of indecisiveness as a seller whilst being very helpful. She let me work the way I was comfortable and adapted to my style. Barfoot and Thomson Mt Roskill branch is a very fine and reputable real estate firm - primarily because they employ people like Sejal Patel. I can honestly say that Sejal is one of the few professional people in any profession who actually exceeded my high expectations.
In summary, Sejal is a seasoned professional who puts the needs and wants of her clients first! Pleasure working with her and would highly recommend her to all potential buyers and sellers. I have been worked with many Realtors over the years and find Sejal one of the few agents who tell it like it is without making open ended promises. If your looking for a no nonsense honest Realtor, Sejal gets my vote.Elsa & Brian
"The property sale transaction has now concluded and I wanted to take a moment to thank you for your efforts.
Selling my first house was a difficult decision and as one would expect I was quite anxious before making a decision. Living overseas made things more difficult given the potential lack of visibility and control on the process. When looking for an agent my objective was to find an honest and passionate individual who would achieve my objectives i.e. achieve the appropriate price and ensure the process was smooth/transparent. I can now safely say that I made the right decision by appointing you. I have highlighted some points below that were exceptional as part of the service you provided. I hope that you will continue to do this with your future clients.
- Objective and honest feedback on potential selling price and appropriate method of sale.
- Top class communication throughout the process. In-fact almost on a daily basis via Whatsapp. outstanding!
- Making the tenant feel at ease ensuring we got the best outcome from a property presentation perspective.
- Honest feedback on initial offers and negotiating tips whilst not influencing my decision.
- Smooth conclusion of the process via auction.
I can assure you that I will have no hesitation in recommending you to future clients. Feel free to use me as a reference for an important deal.
I wish you every success in your chosen profession. Good luck!" Raghav
"It is an absolute pleasure and honour to write this testimonial for Sejal Patel of Barfoot & Thompson Mount Roskill. We recently purchased a property in Royal Oak and this daunting task was made seemingly easy with Sejal's expert guidance and dedicated service.Sejal has been recommended to us as a fine real estate agent by several people and we first met Sejal at one of her open homes.
She took the time to understand us as a family and what our needs were. She then shortlisted several properties so she could fully understand our taste. She liaised with several listing agents so we could view any property we liked.
As she got to know us better each property we viewed became impossible to resist. Sejal worked for us. She became a part of our family and wanted to see us settle into our new home.She was extremely approachable and went out of her way to suit our needs and schedules even if it meant a really long day for her.
When we eventually found our dream home she had the same twinkle in her eye that we did and within minutes we began to negotiate the plan. She Once our pre-auction offer was accepted she prepared us for the auction and made the extremely daunting auction seem like a walk in the park. She still keeps in touch to ensure that we are settling in well.
Sejal is a gem of a person, a truly passionate human being and definitely a very knowledgeable, committed and keen estate agent. We look forward to working with her in the future and strongly recommend her as one of Auckland's finest estate agents."DR.Vikas Sethi, Mrs.Purvi Sethi , Mrs. Sheesham Sethi

"We recently enlisted sejal to market our property she was able to secure a sale in a short of time and displayed a good work ethic throughout the process. she was both professional and pleasure to work with. We wish her all the success in her future sales." John and Catherine How
"When we appointed her as a sole agent for our house, little did we know about her professional approach .It all stared with her introductory speech about various aspects of buying ands selling property and removed all our anxiety and fear.she gave us the honest quote about our property.
I really appreciate her diligent data collection and appraisal skills. We are skeptical about the price at the beginning she removed all our doubts off our mind by logically putting the facts in place. I see in her an honest and open approach towards both buyers,and sellers. she is sincere,hard working good knowledge of the market ability to convince buyer,logical approach,kindness and good clientele.
She sold our house for the price she quoted, I stress that she sold the house for the price she quoted not a single cent less. And sold it within a week of putting the house in the market great job! she sold our house quicker that what we thought it would take .She made selling the house a breeze. she would achieve greater success in her profession."
