About Tom Taunt
Tom Taunt began his real estate career with Barfoot & Thompson Ponsonby in 1963. In 1966 he started out with Ken Brown and formed the partnership of Brown and Taunt. In 1981 Tom formed his own real estate company Taunt Commercial Ltd. In 1994 Olsen and Everson purchased Taunt Commercial Ltd and made Taunt Commercial Ltd its head office. Tom carried on working out of Olsen and Everson until it was taken over by L.J Hooker, known as LJ Hooker City Commercial, a few months later Harcourt’s took over the offices so it became Harcourt’s Commercial, a couple of years later it became Corbel Group Ltd. Tom never changed his employer just the company kept changing its name. After Corbel closed its door in April 2008, it was then time to move, as Tom began his real estate career with Barfoot & Thompson 47 years ago it how seem appropriate that Tom completes his career with the great firm of Barfoot & Thompson.
Tom still has plenty of enthusiasm, even after 47 years it is a thrill to talk to people about real estate, his experience is an asset that has its own value and the hundreds of millions of dollar value of property Tom has sold over the years is testimony of dedication to this work.
