As a Branch Manager, I can confidently state that I’m an expert in real estate and that my experience in sales, regulations and training sets me apart from the crowd. Over the last 15 years, I have immersed myself in the outcomes, surprises, complications, successes, fluctuations and positive endings for both my clients and those that I have managed. I intimately understand industry best practices and back not just my team in Mt Eden, but also the 1,500+ salespeople that form the Barfoot & Thompson network.
My sales career began in 2002 in the Eastern bays area, where I built a reputation for action and results. Within my first year, I was recognised as a top achiever. Because of this, I was approached to coach and mentor others in the industry. Since then, I have guided some of New Zealand's top salespeople as they have navigated various market cycles. I have also counselled real estate business owners and managed Barfoot & Thompson's training team which meant sharing my knowledge and experience in all areas of the sales and purchase process. I am so proud that I am able to empower people to succeed and that my knowledge is leveraged for the benefit of their clients.
I believe my professional strength lies in my grasp of the psychology behind selling and the strategies needed to achieve top results. This savvy also has a way of making the real estate process look effortless and has assisted hundreds of real estate salespeople kick start their careers.
My knowledge of the intricacies of the industry and my ability to negotiate, is what drives results for clients and makes me a great advisor. I bring energy and enthusiasm to my team and, as a result, I am always there for support and advice behind the scenes. Mt Eden is a wonderfully artistic suburb with fantastic energy, fabulous restaurants and coveted schools. For a team that knows how to find you the ideal home or the best sale price, look no further.
"This was the first time that we had ever sold a house and throughout the process Teresa was amazing. She updated us constantly and answered all of our questions. She was the ultimate professional. Always positive, helpful and enthusiastic - nothing was too much trouble. She was a delight to work with and on top of all that, not only did we have a fast and terrific result with the selling of our place, but we discovered a great friend!
We would thoroughly recommend her to others, as your experience will be filled with a lot of smiles, fun and positivity!"
"Teresa's unwavering professionalism is portrayed through her appearance, attitude and mindset. She is a focused and details oriented person yet draws you in with fun, passion and charm. Teresa is well known and highly regarded in the real estate industry as someone with an outstanding depth of knowledge. Teresa's success is due to her commitment to put other people's needs and dreams before her own, and always working to find a solution to meet those needs and dreams."Tania Bigham
"We were fortunate to have Teresa's help to prepare one of our properties for selling in 2013. Her assessment of what a buyer of this kind of property would be looking for was 'right on the money' and I have no doubt it lead to more interest and a speedy sale.
Her suggestions were insightful, appropriate for the nature and price range of the property, and highlighted the attributes of the space - these finishing touches also helped the spaces photograph beautifully!
Tapping into her knowledge of how to connect with buyers, create lasting first impressions and sell in a competitive Auckland market were invaluable. This guidance put our minds at ease at a stressful time and it was refreshing to deal with someone who is genuinely passionate about what she does.
With Teresa you get the 'full package' - proven real estate experience, design flair and outstanding customer care!"
