About Tony Gatman

I'm pleased to have joined the team at Barfoot & Thompson Orewa, gateway to the Hibiscus Coast. I grew up on the coast so I know the area well. The bays, beaches and regional parks make it a wonderful place for families, young and old. There are properties to suit all, and I can help you find the ideal home to suit your unique needs.

An excellent outcome for every one of my clients is always my ultimate goal. At first meeting, you talk and I listen, very carefully, to what it is that you want to achieve in real estate.

Prior to real estate I ran a successful business as a professional photographer for over 25 years. I understand the importance of communication when relating with my clients, with the focus always being on the desired result.

Auckland city was home for 15 years so I know how it relates to properties on the other side of the harbour. I returned to the coast in 2006 with my wife Vanessa, and our children, who at that stage were beginning their schooling. I wanted to give them the same opportunities that I had while growing up.

My wife and I both support local community projects and feel a sense of pride living in such a special place. An interesting fact about the Gatman name is that it is embedded in the history of the Hibiscus Coast. A local business, Gatman Motors, served the community for over 50 years.

I am passionate about helping you achieve your property dreams. Ring me at the Orewa branch. It might even be possible to take a walk along the beach while we talk.

What my clients say

“Thank you Tony. You were fantastic to deal with. So honest and worked with the utmost integrity and respect for your vendor. Pleasure working with you.”

Jody Skewes

I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank Tony Gatman for making the sale of my rental property in Red Beach as simple and uncomplicated as it could be. He was supportive, and communicated with me constantly regarding the marketing process. I found him to be a man of his word, possessing strong integrity, openness and honesty. I am very very grateful!

Sue Kennedy

It has been an absolute pleasure working with Tony. From the start to completion of the sale, he gave us 100% effort. His honesty is without question, and his experience and advice was priceless. His patience is endless, and his natural friendly manner is very reassuring. For most of us, selling and buying real estate is something we may do only a few times in a lifetime, but Tony guided us through the whole process without pressure, and achieved for us an excellent outcome. Tony is an excellent communicator and I have no hesitation in recommending him totally. It really has been a pleasure. Thanks again Tony.

Ann & Stephen Kelly

My husband and I were nervous about putting our house on the market with our third child on the way, but Tony made it such an stress-free experience. We never felt any pressure and Tony always kept us informed about next steps going forward.

He demonstrated integrity and transparency throughout every part of the campaign for which we are grateful. I would not hesitate with listing with Tony again, thank you for all your hard work!

Andy & Chrissy Vivian

It has been an absolute pleasure working with Tony Gatman. Tony has made the entire process so easy. His eye for detail and thoroughness made us feel very comfortable. Tony has a calm and soft personality which made us at ease. Whilst we know the hard work he has put in, Tony made it look effortless.

We can’t thank Tony and the Barfoot & Thompson team enough. We will highly recommend Tony Gatman to family and friends.

Fanna & Sanet Share

My husband and I found Tony to be hard working, integral and committed to the sale of our home. Tony communicated throughout the whole process, leaving us with a sense of confidence that he had it under control. Tony seemed to make time for every person that was interested in our home. He even went back in the early evening so a potential buyer could watch a sunset.

We would highly recommend Tony and wouldn’t hesitate to use him again.

Hong & Jo Chhour

Excellent service and care above-and-beyond.

Tony had excellent market knowledge and communication skills. His attention to detail and advice on presentation of our home for sale was invaluable. His easy and relaxed manner minimised stress during uncertain times. His concern and willingness to offer help above-and-beyond his role in selling our house, made the process infinitely easier. We would highly recommend Tony to others.

Kerry & Debbie Rice

Can't recommend Tony highly enough!

Tony was absolutely fantastic to work with. He clearly explained everything that was going on every step of the way, and was always available to answer any questions we had. He went above-and-beyond, and an awesome outcome was achieved in the sale of our home. We are over the moon with the result and wouldn't hesitate to recommend Tony to anyone selling their home.

Cain & Karen Coulton

We had three core features we wanted in our real estate salesperson of choice. These were integrity, skill and heart. We got all of these in spades with Tony Gatman. Tony was invested, professional and hard-working as he led us through the process of selling our home. Tony's relational approach and willingness to go the extra mile at every opportunity reassured us that we were in good hands. This was important in the Covid-19 market environment. Tony's skills were evident from marketing our property, to achieving a pleasing sale price in a short time-frame. He has navigated us through hiccups along the way with clarity and wisdom. We knew we had chosen the right salesperson but can honestly say Tony exceeded all expectations. We will never forget him even taking the dog for a walk so other salespeople could bring viewers through! We highly recommend Tony Gatman for selling or buying property. When you choose Tony, you are in great hands.

Ian & Lisa Lambert - Hibiscus Coast

It has been refreshing working beside Tony buying a new house. He listened carefully to what we needed, he never pressured us in anyway and we felt very peaceful about the way the whole deal worked. What was extra special is that Tony was organised. He kept us informed and went the extra mile when anything needed doing. He made being out of the city easy when buying a house. I would recommend Tony to anyone looking at buying or selling a house because he took the stress out of something that can be quite challenging.  A huge thank you to you Tony.   

Helene Robinson

Tony, so thankful. Thank you for always keeping us informed, for listening to us, your positivity, the hours, for taking our many calls no matter what the hour/or day and for a awesome outcome.
