I would love to help you to get on the property ladder - to upsize, downsize, move on to the next stage in your life, or find that investment property to secure some rental income. As you may already know, the process of buying or selling a property is incredibly involved - I will walk you through the process with ease and expertise.
My professional working background, in lots of ways, ties in very well with my real estate career. My study years culminated with a Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree and a Graduate Diploma in Business Studies in Personal Financial Planning. Many years of experience in the financial services industry, as a bank manager, a mobile mortgage manager and recently as an independent mortgage and insurance broker, has enabled me to see what is involved from all angles when buying and selling property.
Way back in 1994, when I was a mobile mortgage manager, my bank assigned me to Barfoot & Thompson as their relationship manager. In the years that followed I’ve made some lifelong friends in the company, so when I decided on a new career in real estate, Barfoot & Thompson was a natural choice for me.
I have lived in the Eastern Suburbs for over 30 years and know the area well. Chess is my game outside of work. Something of which I am quite proud of is earning the lifetime title of Candidate Master with the World Chess Federation. I also have two motorbikes which I ride and tinker around with.
Come and see me at Barfoot & Thompson Ellerslie. I can promise confidential and sound no-nonsense advice. I speak Taishanese which is a dialect of Cantonese and of course English as I was born here. I would love to walk with you on your life's journey. Ring me or email me on [email protected] and I’ll come to you.
As part of a conjoint arrangement with a second estate salesperson, Stan helped with the purchase of my home. Stan has a sound knowledge of marketing, conveyancing and building regulations concerning residential properties. A safe pair of hands. Don't look any further for a great estate salesperson!Lynne - Sept 2020
I would like to give mention, praise and deep gratitude for one of your real estate salespeople, Stan Yee. Stan has been on a long journey since February 2021, with my younger brother Allan. It all began when my brother decided it was time to move back up to Auckland. He had been living in Hunua for the last seven years. With Stan Yee's help the home was listed and ready for sale in Hunua. We received the LIM report, and were shocked to find that the house did not have a Code of Compliance Certificate! The house went to Auction and was sold but in the end had to be withdrawn because of lack of CCC. Without hesitation, Stan stepped up and promptly organised an Auckland Council surveyor to come up and inspect the home to pass for a CCC. Well the Council surveyor found everything he could possibly find wrong with the house and gave us a long list of what needed to be done and then slapped us with a hefty bill before we even started! This is where our nightmare began! Stan was busy liaising with the plumber and drainlayer, electrician and independent surveyor to assess the property to get it up to standard and then there was the watertightness issue regarding the cladding on the house. Then we were told the cost to get the house up to water tightness standard was anything up to $100,000+ to redo the cladding! Stan managed to work through all these massive obstacles and finally get the house back on the market. We got a sale and a backup contract as well. Then seeing the backup contract through to settlement a few weeks ago. Although my brother took a big loss and didn't get what he hoped to, the house is sold! My brother is so relieved! A huge weight is gone from his shoulders, and he can now move on with his own life! This was only made possible with Stan's help and his perseverance and dedication to see this sale through to the end. This was not an easy task. Stan could have easily just walked away and left my brother to sort out his own mess but he didn't. We are so grateful for the work Stan has done and highly praise him for his work and dedication.Sue
Stan, is no longer just our real estate salesperson, he is now a friend. Stan offers a personality that is not over the top, but factual and friendly. Very business like and professional - just what I expected when selling and buying a home. He is a great communicator across various cultural groups - I am a born and bred Kiwi and related very well to him, and I then saw the way he managed both the seller of this home and the purchaser of our old home (possibly Chinese). Nice work Stan. He has a superb knowledge of the real estate business and how to hold a deal together. Stan assessed our plan, then tweaked it, and even reviewed some of our costings, and then helped make it all happen. We are now enjoying our new home/project at Hunua, thanks to Stan Yee. I look forward to consulting with Stan when we consider selling or purchasing again.Michael Ley - Nov 2021
