About Shawn Shao

I am pleased to take up the position of Manager of the Highland Park branch and look forward to growing its business. It was where I began my real estate career in New Zealand so it's a bit like coming home.

My introduction to the industry was when I joined the team at Barfoot & Thompson Highland Park in 2011. It was the same year that I arrived in New Zealand from China. I loved selling and for six years I worked with the team at the Howick branch. For five of those years I was amongst the Top 25 salespeople overall, an achievement of which I am very proud.

With the diversity of the local market, it is important that you choose the right people to work for you. Our team of highly motivated sales staff is proud of their ability to match their clients with the right customers. We provide a complete range of real estate service combining expert rural as well as residential knowledge, complemented by a dedicated property management team.

As part of the Barfoot & Thompson network, we have immediate access to over 77 branches with more than 1,500 salespeople covering greater Auckland and Northland, as well as use of the Barfoot & Thompson website,, which provides exposure to property listings 24 hours a day, seven days a week. We pride ourselves on being one of the most technologically sophisticated real estate companies in New Zealand. An advanced computer system manages listings, provides the public information with photographs on rental properties and informs on market trends, finance and general real estate topics.

If you are thinking of buying, selling or renting, give us a call. Our team can take you through the real estate process with a minimum of fuss.

Shawn's properties

What my clients say

"We have at long last completed the sale of our property under difficult and trying circumstances.

In spite of this, Shawn and his team displayed an impressive persistent professionalism right through the whole marketing process with tenacity and good humour and allowed us to have a high level of trust and confidence. Their attention to detail and timeliness was exemplary with responsive service, regular feedback and advice of a high commercial standard as they sought to gain an acceptable buyer.

Shawn would be my first choice in the future as an agent and I would hasten to recommend them to potential vendors or buyers. We are rarely this complementary but Shawn and his team took away most of the tension and pressure of achieving a good result."

Trevor and Judy Jones, Bucklands Beach

"Just a note to say thank you and how pleased I have been with the way you and your team have handled the recent sale of my house. Being as I am an elderly man and on my own, going into the sale process was a very daunting experience for me. Your understanding of this, and infinite patience in explaining the whole process to me and your insistence that I had clear understanding of all the steps involved was extremely reassuring. It was also very helpful to find that you seemed to be available for contact at all times. I could not have wished for anyone better to assist me through the whole sales process and I am very grateful for your support and also for the excellent result at completion.
I would certainly be prepared to recommend you unreservedly to any other potential client. "

Ted Blair, Eastern Beach

"Shawn delivered well above what he promised. Great follow up and always available to be contacted at any time day or night. Highly recommend to others, we were very happy with the service Shawn provided and achieving a great result in the sale of our home. Thanks for your time. "

Stephen & Gail HORTON, Huntington Park

"We found Shawn to be a very eager, enthusiastic, dependable and professional sales person which made the whole sale process a thoroughly enjoyable experience. Shawn displayed honesty and integrity in all that he did for us. Shawn and his team are to be recommended to any prospective vendor. "

Alister & Margaret FORBES, Bucklands Beach

" We met Shawn on one of his open homes in our neighborhood and in no time the two houses were sold. That is when we thought we can ask him to sell our house. In no time our house was already on the market. Shawn you are an amazing agent. Your hard work is just excellent. You are very honest and trustworthy and you were very reliable at all times. You were readily available when we needed you. We thought it was very stressful selling our house but you were there to take away all our stress and worries. We do not hesitate to recommend you to anyone in need of selling/buying a property. You are the best Shawn. Keep up the good work and continue to care as you did for us. All the best in your career. "

Connie & George Chitambo, Botany Downs

"Shawn understood very clearly our requirements & conditions and worked through very well in achieving the objective. He was very helpful in advising us on preparation of the property for sale and then also helped us to do those things. I had this property listed before with 2 agents for considerable time but after giving it to Shawn he was able to get multiple offers on the first day of the property viewing and a sale was established within 1 week which is testimonial of his ability to understand issues well and find solutions which I believe is the key to his success."

Chanaka & Sulekha De Silva, Dannemora

"Selling a family home is an emotional journey that requires expert advice and accurate feedback. Shawn did an exceptional job in making this journey a stressfree, inclusive experience. He was honest in providing market feedback and was always approachable, friendly and interested. His attention to details and desire to get the best price possible was remarkable and we would recommend him to other families without hesitation. Thank you."

Andrew & Angela Bell, Bucklands Beach

"I had listed my property with another agent for two months but it just didn't work. One of my friends introduced me to Shawn and I gave him a call. Guess what?!... He sold my house within three days. This guy was born for sales. He provided great service and a very positive attitude; I would highly recommend him to anyone. If you have lost all hope in selling your home or are simply looking for a great result, give Shawn a call."

William Yu, Pakuranga

"As a marketing professional (now retired) and employer of sales staff I would rate Shawn as outstanding. It is rare to meet and work with a sales professional with the ability to tick 'ALL' the right boxes. Throughout the 'sales' process both myself and more importantly my wife were kept up to date continuously. A sincere' thank you' to Shawn."

Bill Harrigan, Northpark
