About Tim O'Shea

"It's a new dawn. It's a new day. It's a new life for you..."

Tim loves selling. He loves technology, providing solutions, and being part of a strong and successful team. He loves dealing with people, helping people, and having fun doing so.

A sales and marketing professional, Tim has a highly successful track record and more than 25 years sales and customer relationship management experience across a broad range of businesses in New Zealand.

Whilst with Microsoft New Zealand, he received several international and local awards for delivering consistent sales growth and excellent service to his satisfied clients. Prior to that, with Canon New Zealand, he was responsible for significant sales growth with both new and existing customers and for establishing and developing various new business opportunities.

As you know, there are a few significant milestones in a lifetime that can make one feel as though they are starting a new life - such as a new job, a new relationship, having kids, and of course buying a new home.

Tim chose a career in real estate because he wanted to use his past sales and customer relationship experience and success to help people to start their 'new life' chapter. He is now doing something that he really enjoys and is passionate about - a role that makes him want to jump out of bed in the morning, knowing that he can utilise his strong sales and people skills without compromising his strong values, and one that makes him feel that he can make a real difference in people's lives.

Having lived in West Auckland for almost 30 years, Tim loves the area and really appreciates its diverse population, its eclectic mix of cultures, and its stunning natural assets such as the majestic rainforest of the Waitakere Ranges and rugged West Coast beaches. His unstifled enthusiasm for this area helps his clients to achieve maximum values for their homes, and the right home choices for his customers.

With an energetic and enthusiastic 'can do' attitude for everything that he does across a wide range of interests and activities outside of work, and a reputation for honesty, fairness, respect, integrity and going out of his way to help people, he can always be relied upon to put his clients and customers first.

Tim takes immense pride in being a professional salesperson - someone that people like, trust, and want to do business with; someone who makes it easy for them to buy and sell, who they will speak highly of to others, and who they will want to do business with again in the future.

What my clients say


"I had the pleasure of having Tim sell my home last year. I chose Tim for this as I knew him to be honest and hard working. Tim went the extra mile to help me get my home ready for sale including getting on his gumboots and lending me some extra plants for my garden area! It looked wonderful and I got a price that I was incredibly happy with. I had never sold a home before and Tim guided me through the whole process, with his friendliness and humour putting me completely at ease.
For something as potentially stressful as selling my home, I spent most of the time laughing! Tim has a passion for helping people that shines though as enthusiastic and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking at selling their home. I would use him again in a heartbeat."
Rosie Gee


"Last December, I contacted Tim O'Shea of Barfoot & Thompson to sell my elderly mother's house in Te Atatu, as she was moving to a retirement village in Taranaki. It was imperative that the house was sold within a short time frame, which could have been difficult for us as we live 350kms away from Auckland. We were very impressed with Tim's marketing skills and his friendly professional approach to selling the property, and we loved his sense of humour.
His communications and updates regarding possible buyers were provided to us at regular intervals. Tim found us a buyer within our required time frame, and the property was sold for a good price. I would have no second thoughts about engaging Tim and Barfoot & Thompson for any future property transactions."
Megan and John Muter


"Tim has a lovely nature which makes him very easy to deal with. He comes across as genuine, efficient and trustworthy, and this was demonstrated in the way he did business with both myself and the vendor. I felt like he was always fair and helpful with both parties. I had many queries and changes along the way and every time he dealt with me, nothing was a problem. I am very happy in my new home and would absolutely use Tim when the time comes to sell."
Haley Robertson


"We like the way that Tim does things. When we chose Tim to market our home, we found him to be very helpful, not at all pushy, and he did an amazing job in selling our house. We were extremely happy with the price that he achieved for us."
Stu and Christine Blank


"We purchased a house from Tim in early 2018. We found Tim to be friendly, thorough and trustworthy throughout the whole process. He always returned calls and emails promptly and went the extra mile to make things easier for us. Even when we had difficult requests, Tim went over and above to resolve them. We were extremely happy with Tim from start to finish and will certainly be using him again in the future."
Dave and Karen Shannon


"Although my husband and I are avid watchers of real estate 'reality TV', we found it quite a different and daunting situation to actually sell our own property. Tim explained the whole process so well and kept us up to date with everything that was happening, so that it really wasn't the stressful experience we expected it to be. We couldn't be more pleased with the result he that achieved for us.
The fact that, until the agreement became unconditional, Tim kept the momentum going just in case anything changed was proof of how much he was really looking out for our interests. People often complain about real estate fees but in our experience we believe it was money very well spent. I would highly recommend Tim to guide family and friends in what is usually one of the biggest life decisions they make."
Jackie and Joseph Cooper


"We've been told on many occasions that buying our first home would be one of the most stressful times of our live but working with Tim it proved to be the complete opposite. His genuine and down to earth approach to dealing with two absolute novices made the entire process effortless.

Tim went out of his way on many occasions to provide detailed information about our new home, improvement options and plenty of useful information on the Waitakere Ranges Heritage Area. His local knowledge and passion for the Waitakere Ranges is evident and we are really looking forward to living within the Karekare community.
We would highly recommend engaging Tim whether buying or selling a home."
PJ and Alla Heta
