With over 10 years' experience in real estate and marketing, I began my career as a protégée and key associate of top salesperson, Yi Wei Lowndes. Yi Wei was one of the Top 20 salespeople at Barfoot & Thompson.
I am an integral member of an award-winning team, which has achieved Top Five status in Central Auckland for the past three years and is now 2018's Number One team in Central Auckland.
I have a flair for marketing, including multimedia, social media and digital marketing, which ensures my clients' properties are targeted in the right places to the right audience. My impressive resumé has included hundreds of editorials for a range of properties and my marketing material has been executed to such a high standard resulting in it being featured in respected magazines.
Being such a core part of Yi Wei's team enabled me to gain experience in high profile property projects, including apartment complexes, rural sales, land developments, golf courses, vineyards, resorts, motels and luxury homes. Each requires a bespoke marketing campaign and clever targeting. A core part of my skillset is my in-depth strategic investment analysis of properties that caters to the needs of investors, leading to premium prices being achieved.
Along the way, I have also accumulated an in-depth knowledge of the residential and rural development process, including Auckland's complex Unitary Plan and commercial regulations.
Multilingual, speaking English, Mandarin and Shanghainese, I have a wide network of buyers in New Zealand and overseas. With previous experience in the immigration field and as an international liaison officer for an international trading company, I also bring with me the discipline of being a professional engineer.
In addition to these technical skills, I have an impeccable work ethic. I am honest, able to relate to a range of clients, both from New Zealand and from overseas; residential, rural and commercial. I am a salesperson that continues to excel year after year, even with my incredible past resumé.
Employ the best - and get the best.
In April 2019 my wife and I decided to put our 2ha block of land with our existing house, on the market for sale. We originally listed our property for three months, and we had many offers that were clearly not what we believed the value of our property was. Kelly and Tian said they had some people who might be serious and they asked to show these people our property. I explained what our expectations were and that if these were not fairly closely met then to respectfully not waste our time. The whole time we were involved with Kelly and Tian as our salespeople they were open and clear and easy to discuss things with. They have a very good manner and are respectful. Kelly and Tian managed to get us an offer not far from our expectations so we did the “list and sell” and sealed the deal. I found that Kelly and Tian were very professional in all that they did. They explained process well and answered our questions clearly. I commend Kelly and Tian for their professionalism and would certainly employ them again if we were to sell again. Many thanks Kelly & Tian.Derek & Maureen Selkirk
Kelly and Tian provided outstanding service throughout our property sale process. They have been professional, knowledgeable and went above and beyond. The video ads they created, the photographer they selected, the home staging company they recommended, everything has been top quality. I genuinely believe their marketing helped us generate more interest in our property.
I would not hesitate to recommend Kelly and Tian if you are considering selling your property, they are true professionals and experts.Grace Liu - Credit Assessor, BNZ
Hello Yi Wei and Tian. First of all, thank you for successfully selling Queen Mary. Although the market is relatively cold, but you made the deal only one week after the auction. The most important thing is unconditional cash buyers, the offer is very good. We can finally offload the pressure and celebrate the success.
In the process, you have made tremendous efforts to help us fight for the best price, and ran for one buyer after another, your effort is greatly appreciated. Your team work with high professionalism and efficiency. Marketing material including photos, videos, editorials, WeChat, text, etc. were very creative and have maximised the value of our house, it is very impressive! I would like to especially thank Tian for his dedication and the endless efforts. The editing of the advertisements were done to every details and made perfect.
We are very pleased to work with you, is our most correct choice and decision, the results are also satisfactory, once again sincerely thank you for your team! We wish your career will be getting better and better in future.
A big Thanks to Yiwei and Tian who sold our house beyond our expectation.
It was stress free and smooth journey for us from on the onset, they took care of everything from home staging to auction. All we need to do was listen to their sound and informed advice to make our decision.
We were impressed with the team, since the advice given for home staging, once we saw the photos and description on advertisement, we knew the house will be sold. The weekly open home feedbacks and follow ups by the team was really professional.
The final market report analysis was spot on, and the strategy set for the auction was key to the sales. All we did was listen to their advices, relax and step back let them do the work.
Deeply appreciated for all the hard work your team have done.
When I initially looked at selling I noted your contact details on a board from a property for sale within the neighbourhood. The whole process from start to finish including four open homes and the auction has been managed in a professional manner and I would recommend Barfoot & Thompson to anyone considering selling their property.
Honest, hard-working, efficient and to the point. Their client base is extensive and well researched. Yi Wei Lowndes and Tian Qiu are true professionals who get the job done, and are lovely people along the way.
I cannot recommend them highly enough.

May I wish you all the best for all projects you handle in the years to come.Allen Theunissen, Cest la Vie Free Range Farm
From the time we walked into your office, after hours, on Sunday 13 March, and found you both beavering away, we knew you were the right representatives to sell our home. The outcome speaks for itself, but we observed this was not achieved without a tremendous effort working long hours and the skilful use of marketing strategies. Within days we had over 100 potential buyers inspecting our home.
Your cordiality, sincerity, discretion and professional advice was very much appreciated.
We will not hesitate to recommend to family and friends to avail themselves of your services on real estate matters.
Many, many thanks for that special effort to make the auction day a milestone to cherish.
