In 2013, I began my career in real estate with Barfoot & Thompson. Coming from a successful business background founding and growing some of the most successful franchised service brands in New Zealand, choosing who to work with was essential. I wanted a brand that not only had exceptional people, but one that was community and family-orientated, and when it came to customer service, stood head and shoulders above the rest. Without a doubt, it was Barfoot & Thompson.
For the following eight years, I was one of the top salespeople in the company. On numerous occasions, I was the #1 salesperson in the Rodney region. In 2021, an opportunity presented itself to share my knowledge and experience as Manager of three branches, Kumeu, Waimauku and Helensville, covering the Rodney district. It is a position for which I’m very grateful and every day I relish working with such a fantastic group of people.
My strong sales teams provide outstanding service to Riverhead, Kumeu, Waimauku, Muriwai, Helensville, South Head, Waitoki, Kaukapakapa and surrounding suburbs.

I am delighted to be writing a few words to express my thoughts regarding our Manager Extraordinaire, Sharon Kenny! My first glimpse of Sharon, years before I met her, made a lasting impression. Her well executed profile photo on social media was a cut above the rest and so were her down-to-earth posts and excellent marketing. She was then the face of Rural/Lifestyle sales to me.
And now, a few months in, under her management, this is what I have observed. Behind her keen business mind lies a generous heart and the overall wellbeing of her team means a lot to her. She is very down-to-earth, helpful and sensitive. She is also direct, confident, creative and daring. Sharon has created an open and safe environment for all the team to discuss any topic or situation and learn from each other.
Encouragement at all times, correction when required, and direction when needed, are things that one can expect from her. I love the fact that she has no hesitation in offering to others, the expertise and skills she has gained over many years of hard work, making it truly a fantastic opportunity for any who would be willing to learn and apply these to their real estate career.Maggie Altaf - Helensville
Sharon Kenny is a fantastic branch manager who is knowledgeable and always goes the extra mile to ensure her team are as successful as possible. She is extremely supportive, approachable and likes to celebrate success. Overall, Sharon does a great job at making the Kumeu branch a great place to work and the best of Nor-West.Anik Arundel - Kumeu
Thinking of who to choose as a manager within our Barfoot & Thompson brand, has led me to Sharon Kenny. She always looks at raising the bar, and I've joined Sharon because of her personal excellence, positive and straight-to-the-point, open-minded approach. No one has unlimited time and I wanted to make mine count, grow professionally as well as personally and be part of her successful adventure taking the Kumeu and Helensville team to another level. Real estate, no matter if it's big or small, is a serious business. To me, it's about changing peoples lives on a daily basis. It's so important to enjoy what you do and that you can trust the people you work with to have your best interests at heart. Sharon reads and understands people and situations intuitively, is supportive and always makes time for her crew*. If you're looking to improve your wardrobe, do something that means the world to you and your clients, come and get sparkling in your career. Give her a call and join our team at BarfootBestNorWest.Manuela Willis - Kumeu
Sharon has created an encouraging supportive team environment here in Kumeu and she is always available to help. The office is always overflowing with good vibes, laughter and great people.Mayson Day - Kumeu
I have known Sharon Kenny for a number of years via a professional relationship in regard to real estate with myself as a buyer. Throughout that time I found her to be extremely professional, thorough and honest. Sharon always presents herself in a professional manner and has everything in order including her personal presentation. In a business sense she is very accurate and knowledgeable providing logical recommendations and information with accuracy.
I have since had the opportunity of working with Sharon and getting to know her also on a personal level. As my manager, I feel that I am in the very best of hands and know 100 per cent that I can rely on her and trust her impeccable judgment. Having owned my own business prior to this for 20 years, I do not put aside my own direction and thoughts easily, yet with her it comes very naturally. She is the most genuine, caring and professional woman I have ever met and I feel extremely fortunate to be working under her guidance. She has my loyalty, trust, and 100 per cent of my effort and confidence in her leadership.
On a personal level Sharon goes above and beyond for people, her qualities are limitless and something for anyone to aspire to. She brings back the meaning of how people should treat others, and with her it is unconditional. She is very giving, an amazing friend, mother, and has lived a life professionally and I would say personally, worthy of a story you want to hear. I think this has made her the special soul she is. I feel so blessed to have Sharon in my life and hold her in the very highest of regard. My only negative is I wish I had met Sharon sooner!
Sharon is one of my most favourite and important people in my life now and my list is not very long. She is someone I aspire to learn from and I hope she is always in my life.Lani Allard - Kumeu
Sharon is a nurturing, enthusiastic and a beautifully kind manager. She is of the 'new school' in our industry where integrity matters most. As an experienced salesperson, Sharon is always there for me whenever I need her while trusting me to run by business how I want to. I have watched her guide new salespeople to achieve incredible results. She celebrates all of the wins and has our backs on the harder days. I couldn't ask for a better mentor, manager and friend.Nicole Calis - Kumeu
