At the end of 2020, I selected Steve to help me sell my house in Dannemora, after meeting him for the first time at a nearby open home. It was a great decision as Steve did an outstanding job helping me to assess and prep the house for sale, and then managing the full sales process in a very professional and friendly manner. He was very transparent and communicative, keeping me up-to-date with what was going on in a very clear style. At the auction there were several bidders and I was extremely happy with the end result. I highly recommend Steve.John Trail
How do you choose the right real estate salesperson?
We had the same thoughts. We were very lucky to have met Steve Weng on a number of cold-call visits he had made to us over a number of years; he would pop up whenever he had sold a property in the area. These were always enjoyable visits, full of laughs, however we had lost his card and could only remember his name was Steve. Oh well we would have to move on. With unexplained timing, Steve phoned us the very day we had given up looking for him. (We didn’t look too hard!)
Talking with someone in a cold-call situation was one thing, but to get him to sell your house was another? Steve came straight over and we knew he was the right person for the job. Why?
• Excellent humour
Steve was the man for the job. Not once in this process did we ever think we had made the wrong choice. We trusted Steve 100% and did what Steve asked, (declutter, etc). After all he had done this before! The communication was exemplary and the results where mind-blowing.
We couldn’t speak highly enough of this wonderful man and real estate salesperson.Joanne & Grant Petersen
We engaged Steve to market our father’s house after he moved into care. I first met Steve approximately two years ago. I was immediately impressed by his friendliness and professionalism. His professionalism, knowledge and communication were outstanding. He was so respectful at a difficult time for us and gave us full confidence in his ability. We have no hesitation and it’s a pleasure to recommend Steve Weng for your real estate needs.Neil Allen
When we met Steve, we found him to be very friendly, approachable and easy to talk to. It has been over 20 years since we last sold our house and Steve was very knowledgeable and able to update us on the nitty-gritty of the current market and what processes were required to proceed with auction these days. That made us very comfortable to proceed as we understood it would be a major task to get ourselves sorted and ready.
Steve was always there when we needed assistance and ready to accept our request and demands. He was able to provide contacts when we required things to be touched up at the house. But most of all we would like to commend Steve for his hard work. It enabled us to record the highest auction sales for the month of December in our area (East Tamaki).
Thank you Steve for your effort and we wish you all the best in the coming new year with more sales to come.Julian & Esther Teoh
I am pleased to provide this testimonial for Steve Weng in relation to the marketing and sale of the property at Aclare Place, Dannemora on behalf of the Brownhill Family Trust.
Steve Weng provided expert advice and guidance to myself and to my sister as the salesperson for Barfoot & Thompson, in respect of navigating the process through to auction. His awareness and knowledge of the local market was an important factor in realizing a successful outcome.
Steve's personable and easy manner was also a strong factor in attracting the interest of potential parties to the property. At all times he was a pleasure to work with.
I can recommend Steve Weng without hesitation to any person wishing to sell or purchase property especially within the Howick, Dannemora and Flat Bush area.Stephen Brownhill
Steve’s friendly nature and caring warm disposition made me feel completely comfortable with him right from the get-go. His honest and open approach provided me with confidence and his weekly updates were detailed and communicative.
The whole auction process was, I am sure, so much less stressful due to Steve’s attitude and commitment to obtaining the best result possible for me and I was delighted with the outcome.
Steve is professional and trustworthy and I felt that he went above and beyond in every aspect of the campaign sale.
Thank you Steve and I wish you every success for the future.Karen Woodmass
I have known Steve for the last five years from the time he was walking past my house and stopped to introduce himself and have a talk. To start with we had one thing in common that being dog owners. As time went on we would discuss the local housing market and the love of our dogs. I found Steve a very polite and interesting person who never pushed his role as a real estate salesperson.
Late last year I discussed an idea with him at the time on buying a house for part rental and selling my house. The market at the time was small with not much available. I later changed my mind and moved to Pauanui to live. With Covid-19 changing our lives and lifestyles, I decided to put my Dannemora property on the market and relocate in Havelock North.
I called Steve and outlined my plans to him. From there he took over the marketing, advertising, staging of my property, open homes. Once the property was on the market he would be in constant contact with updated reports from prospective buyers. He would be on hand to answer any of my questions at all times and handled and conducted himself in a professional manner.
On auction day, I was a little sceptical on the events of the day but was put at ease by Steve and the auctioneer. In the end I could not have wished for a better result on the sale of my property, and I have Steve to thank for the result.
I have no hesitation in recommending him to look after the sale of one of your largest assets and getting the best result for you.Don Adamson
My wife and I met Steve at an open home in Howick of which we expressed an interest. We requested Steve to provide an appraisal on our Nelson Street property. This he did and from this point on we requested Steve to market the property. The marketing was interrupted by the level four of Covid-19. During the lockdown with no activity, Steve kept in touch with us until level two was underway. Steve managed a number of open homes until a sale was agreed.
We found Steve very easy to deal with his guidance through the complete process including the Covid-19 interruption. His professional approach provided us with comfort that resulted in a stress-free path for ourselves. We would recommend Steve to anybody whom is embarking on a sale and purchase pathway.Wayne & Beryl
"At the beginning of the 2020 we engaged Steve Weng to market and sell our home in East Tamaki Heights, Auckland. I am pleased to say that we had a great result in a difficult market leading into the Covid-19 Alert level 4 Lockdown. Steve’s excellent advice and hard work, which was well supported by the Barfoot & Thompson machine, made the difference that allowed us to sell and move to the next phase of our life.
Steve is an absolute gentleman, a great guy and it was a pleasure dealing with him.
We wish Steve every success and have no hesitation recommending him to anyone looking for a top notch real estate salesperson."Ian and Maggie Kingston
My name is Simon James Kirby and on behalf of my wife, Taryn Amy Kirby, recently had the pleasure of working with Steve Weng from the Barfoot & Thompson real estate team, in the sale of our property in Derg Place, Dannemora.
I am writing this letter to outline the outstanding work done by Steve Weng.
Steve came on board when we decided to purchase another property in late November 2019. Due to the pressures of the upcoming Christmas holiday period at the end of December and the sale of our existing property and in such a tight time-frame we enlisted the help of Steve. The sale of our existing property needed to be completed in a two week time-frame.
Steve worked tirelessly working late nights organising the appropriate documents and working around mine and my wife's busy lifestyles, often showing up at our address in the late evening to get the documents signed. His communication throughout the process was of the highest standards which made it a very easy process for us. His knowledge and understanding of the property market is second-to-none which made making the decisions we had to make very painless and easy.
Through his marketing strategies and his contacts within the property sector Steve managed to put through close to 100 potential buyers through the property in such a tight time-frame which ultimately sold the property at a very good price and before the cut off date. Working with Steve was such a pleasure and will definitely be working with him again on future properties.
I cannot recommend him enough and he is a very valuable asset to the Barfoot & Thompson real estate team.
Steve is a professional, hard-working and friendly agent. He always put us first and was willing to go the extra mile to make sure we were happy with the sale. Everything he said was honest and encouraging; he put our minds at ease and explained every step of the process to us newbies. I would definitely recommend Steve to anyone wishing to sell their property.Scott Ngan
I am pleased to write that Steve Weng was very pleasant to deal with and helped me enormously when I decided to sell my home after the death of my husband. He was gentle and courteous and the result was beyond my expectations.Joan Frogley
We would like to recommend Steve Weng of Barfoot & Thompson for selling our home. We found Steve very friendly, hard working, honest and reliable. Whilst we were out of the country he kept us up to date with everything and looked after our home, visiting it every day making sure all was well. He made the process of selling our home simple and trouble free. Thank you once again Steve for your hard work and professionalism.Dave & Maryanne Ellery
We would like to thank Steve for all of his efforts he put in to achieving a fantastic result we could have never dreamed of. From the first moment Steve knocked on our door he filled us with confidence and his warm and friendly nature made any questions we had easy to bring up. Throughout the whole process Steve was always willing to answer any questions we had as well as keeping us up to date of how the process will work, as this was the first time we had considered going to auction. Steve explained that as our house was well-presented and in a good location that going to auction was going to be the best option to achieve the best result. We found Steve always accommodating to work around our work schedules and our dogs as well as doing the best to promote the property on the limited budget we had to spend.
Steve, is in our opinion, is highly professional and is dedicated to his clients. His determination and attention he puts into everything he does helped us achieve a level well past our expectations. Thank you, Steve, for all you did for us and we wish you every success in the future.
Steve assisted us with selling our beautiful home and we could not have asked for a more supportive and understanding agent. Steve has an exceptional work ethic and sold our property promptly and efficiently, keeping us thoroughly informed throughout the entire process. We couldn't have been happier with the service we received from Steve and would highly recommend any future sellers, who want a great sale outcome, to contact Steve.Lauren & Stephen Albrey
I first met Steve Weng a year before my mother actually sold our family home. Right from this moment I admired his dedication and pursuit for future listings and opportunities. Over the year, Steve popped around from time to time, like a friend would, just to say hello, without any 'real estate' pressure. When the decision to sell was made we decided to use Steve (and his colleague) from Barfoot & Thompson. It was the BEST decision we made; the professionalism, dedication, honesty, transparency, along with clear and precise information was second to none. Steve and his colleague worked as an extremely impressive team, with a rapport and caring attitude which made you feel you were in very good hands and were the only sale they had!! Above all this, you felt they listened. Steve worked 24/7 to achieve my mother's goal and through his hard work and dedication this goal was reached.
Both the sale of the family home, and the purchase of my mother's new home were through Barfoot & Thompson, and I would have NO hesitation to use them again if the occasion arose. My mother and I definitely have a new-found friendship with Steve, and he is a real estate agent with true integrity.
