About Tony Carter
I have worked and resided in the East Coast Bays for my entire real estate career, initially selling residential and rural property throughout North Shore and lower Rodney District until being appointed manager of Barfoot & Thompson's Torbay branch.
Prior to joining Barfoot & Thompson I held senior management roles mostly with Fletcher Building in the manufacture of building products in the composite wood panels, aluminium and steel products divisions and also in the food processing industry. Experience and knowledge gained in these roles is a valuable resource I can draw from in training and advising my sales and property management teams and their clients as well as managing the real estate business.
Our sales, rental and property management teams are comprised of high performing, well-trained and hard-working professionals with vast skills and experience to draw from. The sales team is a cultural mixture that hails from New Zealand, Asia, Central America and South Africa. Most live locally and they are experts in the local market. Our well established, well qualified and growing property management team Corrin Hand and Lu Yu is very highly regarded by their landlords and tenants. Based in Torbay village and on the doorstep of Long Bay, the branch is ideally situated to manage the sale and purchase, rental and management of residential and rural property throughout the East Coast Bays, west and north through lower Rodney.
We are very much concerned with our local community, actively involved in Torbay Business Association and Torbay Community Association. As well as all the other charities we support we regularly assist and sponsor local schools, community groups and community events and we are a principal sponsor of Torbay Sailing Club and the Sir Peter Blake Regatta.
Our branch is supported by Barfoot & Thompson's sophisticated computerised listing system that enables all of our salespeople across more than 77 branches, from Waiuku in the south to Kerikeri in the north, to view and have access to any of our listings as soon as they are released. There are no geographical barriers in our company so any of our salespeople, in any branch, can sell anywhere. The property management team uses a top of the range, fully integrated financial management system across their entire portfolio of properties. Our systems and people are two of the key reasons Barfoot & Thompson sells around one in every three Auckland properties.
Our clients also benefit from the fact that all listings are fully exposed on several major international property websites including www.barfoot.co.nz, www.realestate.co.nz, www.hougarden.com, www.nzrealtors.co.nz and www.leadingrealestatecompaniesoftheworld.com . As well as the web we can provide a customised marketing solution to suit any clients' needs. It is not unusual for our first enquiries on a new listing to come from overseas.
Barfoot & Thompson continues to win many national and international awards and it's great to be recognised for the high standards by which we operate. We understand the market, trends and its influences and we thoroughly understand property and know many property owners and landlords throughout our area.
