I have been the top salesperson in the Mission Bay branch of Barfoot & Thompson from 2011 to 2017.
My approachable nature along with my work ethic and extensive knowledge of the Eastern Bays area has ensured my understanding of the local market. I am the epitome of good nature and hard work, and will ensure that I obtain the best deal for you and your property. I am known for my excellent client service and take genuine pride in helping my clients get the results that they want. My work and reputation with vendors, local developers and land package properties is second to none.
I began my real estate career in 1993, with Pam Golding Properties in the Northcliff branch in Johannesburg, where I earned Gold Club Status from 1994 through to 1999. In 1999 I emigrated to New Zealand with my family and have been in the top two salespeople in my office ever since.
As my manager says "There is no substitute for experience and after nearly 20 years in the real estate industry Veronica still retains her enthusiasm and love of the job".
The beauty of the Barfoot & Thompson culture is that you help buyers and sellers anywhere in New Zealand with their needs.
Our experience in working with Veronica and Robert was seamless. They were so friendly and just easy to get along with, yet maintained a high level of professionalism. When it came to negotiating we found that they really knew how to navigate tricky situations well, which is key when you’re selling your property. They brought us an acceptable offer after the very first open home and then carried on to find us a property to buy all within the same week. One thing in particular we loved as well was that they stayed in touch with us throughout the process and even after they sold our home, to make sure we were all settled. To anyone who is thinking of selling their home and want a great team who knows how to connect with the market, we would recommend Veronica and Robert any day.Tony Major - Eltham Road, Speight Road.
Robert has been of great help hunting a house for my daughters. I didn’t know much about Auckland and he went above and beyond to show me endless listings, and took the time to explain the different areas of the city to me. We have been seen apartments down town, houses in Parnell, Mission Bay, Orakei, St Heliers, Glendowie and the Wynyard Quarter; pretty much everywhere. I’ve bought through him and we are looking at more properties again. Robert and Veronica have shown top quality service from day one and they are both very humble people to work with. Id recommend them any day of the week.Antonio Pasquale - Atkin Ave
I’ve worked with Veronica and Robert over numerous projects and have found their professional approach and perseverance to getting the best outcome refreshing. Having two salespeople for the price of one is of real value.Ben Dransfield - Carnarvon Ave, Waimarie St, Speight Rd
".....The process of selling and purchasing a home is often a stressful one no matter how prepared or seasoned you are. Our personal experience was no different. We had already sold and were looking for a new home for our growing family. With the thousands of salespeople all offering their services, it is hard to come across a duo that will not only come up with the goods, but more importantly, bend over backwards to get the result you need. Our dealings with Robert and Veronica were just that. We found the house we wanted but the true test was (and this is where they were outstanding), getting the deal across the line with the budget we had. Our questions were always answered. We always felt like they cared and had our back. They never gave up and we now have our new home. We could not be happier. We would recommend Robert and Veronica to anyone wanting salespeople that have more than just the bottom line in mind...."Anthony Bodle & Clare Gillson
When my wife and I bought a home through Veronica in St Heliers, we were very impressed with her frank, honest and open approach to the sale. So much so that, when it came time to move, we had no hesitation in asking Veronica and Robert to handle the sale. As the absolute Eastern Bays specialists, I could not recommend more highly this duo to maximize returns on a residential sale.Andre Reynolds - Long Drive
