Buy with Confidence, Sell with Success!
It was a chance meeting that we had with Shaival and Vikas when we wanted to view a property advertised online on Clark Road. At first we felt a bit rushed when we said we were thinking of putting our own property on the market. That very same afternoon - we signed up with Barfoot & Thompson to sell our property.
Over the course of a month we developed a close relationship with them, and they no longer felt like they were our salespeople but our friends. They advised us about how the market was, is and what to expect. With such knowledge from these two, it gave us a fair idea of where we wanted to be in the housing market.
We thank them for their no mucking around approach to selling and also helping us to secure another property to move to once settlement was complete on our current property. The timings were matched well, not only for us, but even our buyer and the family that we bought the house from as they had found a house too.
We admire their commitment, work ethic, professionalism, friendly and positive attitude, that always made us feel like we were their number one priority despite other clients that they had. Ongoing communication, quick and easy - their determination to see our property sold at the best price - often reminding us of our goal - is to sell (doesn't matter who to). Also their desire to see us on our way after securing the sale - into another new, safe and solid home.The Taufas
I'm not normally the type of person to take the time to write reviews, but I was so thoroughly impressed by the job that Vikas and Shaival, did that I felt compelled to share my experience. Right from the start, the team of two were friendly and listened to what we wanted, without giving off a feeling of pressure or obligation. We were well informed and able to make a decision in our own time, and since it was the sale of our first home it wasn't the easiest decision to make. But with both of their guidance and knowledge of the market we decided to take the leap, and it was the best thing we have done.
We decided to list during the middle of the week and they were quick to arrange the photos, video and a sign, all in time for our first open home that weekend. By the Monday following the first open homes, we had already received our first offer, plus a counter offer, which took us by surprise in such a short space of time. After a short negotiation we agreed on a price and the house went unconditional a week later. The whole process was seamless and handled very professionally.
It was so good in fact, that a friend of ours in the area asked if she could get their contact details as her house had been on the market for six months with no bites. All it took was Vikas and Shaival to get involved and the house was sold in a day!
So it goes to show it's not always what you know but who you know, and if you're selling your house then this team of two is all you need to get results. They get my vote for sure and I would highly recommend them both. You won't be disappointed.Scott Thomas
"Vikas sold our rental not long after the big government property changes. We were unsure how interest in the property might be affected but he was confident and got our price. He came down to meet us in person which we appreciated and communicated in a timely, professional manner. Very happy with the sale.“Maria-Elisa
"I want to acknowledge the outstanding service we experienced from Shaival Malhotra & Vikas Kapoor at Barfoot & Thompson, during our property purchase. Shaival & Vikas are highly skilled realtors who understand the needs and preferences of their clients from the first meeting and organise the viewings accordingly.
I had been looking for a property to purchase for a very long time and have attended several open homes and private viewings through other real estate salespeople. After meeting these two dynamic realtors, I signed the contract after spending my first day out with them viewing their shortlist of properties.
They were always prompt in returning phone calls and resolving any queries and guided us when securing our new property. The entire process was seamless.
As a result, we are now proud homeowners. I will highly recommend them if you are looking to buy or sell your home."
While I was considering selling, I applied for a virtual evaluation of my property. I was flooded with salespeople coming to see me and doing their sales pitch. I was quite overwhelmed with all the different options and values and even things that were pointed out for me to have attended to in order to make it an easy sell for the salesperson.
Vikas’s approach was very different. He was very direct, straight up, genuine and honest. He gave me an evaluation that I felt was realistic. He explained the whole process and all the costs involved very clearly. He made me and my partner feel like we in good hands and would be taken care of.
Well to say the very least, he took great care of us. His attention to detail was awesome. He was always in full communication with us and went to all ends and at very late hours in the evening to get this deal over the line. I can honestly say that I am extremely happy with the service we received from Vikas and I have already referred him to my friends when they are ready to sell and I will continue to refer him. We feel we have developed a great friendship with Vikas as a person, not just another salesperson.
You should be proud to have a salesperson with his ethics and morals on your team.
Kind regardsBilly Rautenbach
"Despite starting to look in the Auckland market last year, we could not find a home in the midst of intense competition. The journey was difficult and turbulent with no real assistance available to navigate through the market. I came across many salespeople who ended up being unhelpful and distant in the name of being professional, which did not help us to make decisions. After various difficulties, we came across Vikas and were very impressed with his simple straight-forward approach. Rather than just trying to sell, he made the attempt to understand our situation and find a home that suited us as a family. He constantly kept us updated and showed us new properties to see in the various areas that we were interested. Always responsive and available, his approach and dedication to the job made us feel safe to finally invest in a property. He helped us through the offer, negotiating, and settlement process while making sure to convey our conditions accurately and effectively even through the COVID-19 lockdown. We are very happy with our property purchase and credit goes to Vikas for helping us navigate what can be a stressful and dynamic Auckland housing market. I would definitely recommend Vikas to anyone looking to purchase their first home or an investment home. I was so impressed with the service that if I was to look at purchasing another property for any reason, my first go-to person would be Vikas."Iyer Monty
I purchased a house in Pyne Crescent Pokeno on 11th February 2020 which was listed by Vikas Kapoor. Dealing with Vikas was amazing as he is highly professional and understands the buyer's needs. He provided me every little detail of the property in precise time to make me decision without any hassle. He also handled everything very well in the difficult time of Covid-19.
I was truly assured that I am in good hands through out the buying process in addition to enjoying his dynamic, vibrant and charismatic personality. He is very honest and down to earth person. At the end to mention that I am very pleased with him and will be delighted to recommend him to everyone.
I also would like to thanks for the gift hamper which I believe is a bonus on top of all the help he provided.
Thanks & Kind RegardsKunwar Talwar
I just want to say a massive thank you Vikas, for being so helpful and professional during my dealings with Barfoot & Thompson. I would highly recommend you to anyone looking to sell their house. You did a fabulous job! Your market knowledge combined with you dealing promptly with queries through the sales process resulted in a fantastic outcome. Everything went smoothly and was as stress-free as possible from start to finish.
In July 2019 I sent a few emails to various real estate agents to get interest in selling our property in Papakura. Vikas Kapoor from Barfoot & Thompson contacted me back promptly and was able to visit that same morning. He was polite and professional and confident. He quickly enlisted a team in Alison Kemp and the two of them met with us to outline their strategy and how they could do the best for us with the sale. They were both confident and skilled in working with people, first and foremost. I was impressed from the first contact with Vikas.
Vikas and Alison worked really well together - I never felt that one was taking over or that one knew more than the other - very professional and collegial. It was never a problem to contact either one and they were both quick to respond. Vikas always took the time to explain terms and concepts, often needing patience when I was unsure of how to proceed, or unfamiliar with the ways of real estate. We come from different backgrounds but there was no barrier thanks to Vikas' skill in real estate, English skill and personable manner. I never felt that I was in the dark, or being misled. I am grateful that they were able to be patient and honest - they did a great job of reading their vendors.
In the end, and with their patient guidance and confidence, the house sold. They were both kind enough to offer advice on the buying process that we were now facing! It was a pleasure to work with them both. I would recommend them to any prospective vendor.
Vikas is a very hard working individual, who understands the mantra of the property market. He know what his client is looking for due to his in-depth knowledge which helps him to provide the top notch advice to his clients. Its hard to find a genuine person in the market who goes above and beyond the call of duty to help the clients. I can confidently recommend him to everyone. All the best for his future endeavours.Asim Mukhtar
My husband and I recently purchased and moved into our first house together through the Barfoot & Thompson agent Vikas Kapoor. He promised us to get the right house in a few months, finally we found it in two months. Vikas is very friendly, extremely polite, professional in explaining what we needed to do. He was always available to answer any questions we had (no matter how silly or small they were)! Vikas also helped us getting the finance sorted and overall we receive a fantastic and friendly service from Vikas Kapoor. Very appreciated your effort and time!!Mital Patel and Ashwin
The Fajardo family have been extremely impressed by your outstanding ability in selling our house. It is still so hard to believe that you have been able to sell our property so quickly in a very slow and saturated market here in Pokeno. We will certainly be recommending you Vikas, and the Papakura team of Barfoot & Thompson, to those who will be looking to sell or buy property.Vicente Ma Fajardo
I try not to recommend any one to anything! Vikas did a very good job for us.Margaret Kuen
