Will recently acted as agent for the sale of our apartment in Manukau. He was truly professional in all his dealings. His communication was exceptional, keeping us informed every step of the way. He negotiated on our behalf to obtain a good price, very close to our asking price. We would highly recommend Will to others who are looking for a top class estate agent. Kevan and Helen
"From the outset of our interactions, Will has shown strikingly positive energy and professional approach to the case at hand. Needless to say, the case in question was to sell our family house. This was exactly that attitude that made me to pick him over the other agents. And then during the course of the marketing campaign, he relentlessly maintained that unique positive attitude, which was so contagious that even house viewers picked it up and ultimately got converted into the bidders at the auction. We felt comfortable about him being our representative throughout the whole experience of selling the house. As a result, he met our expectations by achieving the highest possible price in the current market."
Thanks for your help. Alex - Vendor, Kirkbride Road
We have recently sold our apartment and had Will as our agent. He was absolutely amazing, and was able to secure a price for us that exceeded our expectations. The sale required extensive negotiations as well as some fairly creative thinking and Will was able to keep things running smoothly, and keep us informed every step of the way. I have already recommended him to my property investor colleagues. He did an excellent job!
After signing Will as our property agent we felt comfortable with his positive attitude towards our expectations. His level of communication has been outstanding since the start. He worked tirelessly and went above and beyond our expectations to sell our property in a difficult market. He is well informed about the ever-changing property market and therefore made it easy for us to trust him to sell our family home. Thank you Will!! Azeem & Arfa
It was a pleasure working in collaboration with Will. He is an organized, hard worker, conscientious and with a meticulous approach. I was quite lucky dealing with him as an agent. He made it very easy for me to understand the whole property sale process. As, it was something new for me. He was always responding to my e-mails and text messages and that made it easy regarding ongoing communications. With his effort and excellent follow up strategy; my unit was sold via the Auction at the best price. He would be deemed as a big value added to the business. I would highly recommend him to prospect vendors and buyers.Rayan-Tarik Jalil
Will El-Haddawi is very honest, friendly and stays in touch with every word that has said about the house, I highly recommend other people to sell there house with Will El-Haddawi, he's a person that has everything you need when it comes to people and selling houses. Jabbar Edan
Will El-Haddawi has recently sold our two properties in Mangere by Auction. From the get-go Will was professional, honest, efficient & contactable 24/7. Our marketing campaign ran smoothly and we were always kept well informed with market feedback etc, thanks to Will's strong communication skills. Come Auction day we were totally comfortable Will had delivered a successful marketing campaign & had buyers interested. We were thrilled when both our properties sold under the hammer on Auction Day with results exceeding our expectations.
Thank you Will (& Frank), we would not hesitate to recommend you to any of our friends or family in the future.Wendy & Garry
I would like to thank Will from the bottom of my heart for the professional work he has done in the sale of my property. He just took over the load of worry from day 1 until the property was sold. Every time I saw or spoke to him, he always assured me not to worry that everything will be fine. I will recommend his services to anyone I know who is interested in buying or selling a property. I praise God for leading him to me. May God Bless the team at Barfoot and Thompson for all the excellent work you are all doing to help people.
Thank you Will. Have a Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year.Mataina Maoate
Will is a very professional real estate person that does his work to a very high standard. He is proactive in his dealings, keeps you up to date with open home feedbacks, or any other details that is required. He allowed other real estate agents excess to sell this property, therefor we had lots of people from other areas in Auckland who showed interest in our property as well. I could contact him at any time and he was available and if call missed he will call be straight back. He is very approachable and a very good attitude overall.
I would recommend him to anyone that needs to work with Will for any property dealing. I would also like to thank Frank for his hard work and exceptional professional attitude. Very well appreciated by my children too. To both Will and Frank, Good luck for the future and thank you so much for such an awesome marketing.Sushil Murthi
On behalf of my small and young family I would like to commend this gentleman for his professionalism. We sold our property and were being literally forced in a corner by the salespeople who were helping us relocate into better house. The moment I spoke to this gentleman I knew he had the X-factor. As we did not want to relocate to South Auckland due to work commitments I was very hesitant to engage seriously. However this guy's professional attitude can change any person's mind. We found the best possible house we could and the price we paid was unbelievably lower than what we expected and we are just glad that he made us look at buying in South Auckland. A great guy with very transparent approach. Excellent salesperson! Ramiz
Crikey! It is the best the news for us today! Thank You very much.
Guys, you have done a terrific job. Very professional. Every dealings were fast, satisfactory & transparent and that's exactly how we want it done. Very happy!
Many thanks.Paul & Libby Jessop
"I have found Will and his team excellent at all levels of the sale of our property. He was informative, accurate and available at any time to assist or answer queries which as a result kept us relaxed and comfortable with what would normally be a very stressful process and recommend him to anyone thinking about selling their property." Steve Huggard
"Will and Rowan made a great team, each bringing their respective strengths to the table to achieve a result for us that exceeded our expectations in every way. From first contact, through all our dealings we were impressed with their professionalism, knowledge and integrity. Attention to detail, an intelligent marketing campaign and great use of the Barfoot & Thompson organisation meant that our unique property got the attention it needed to achieve a good price. Will and Rowan are a pleasure to deal with and we would have no hesitation working with them again or recommending them to others. A job well done!" Rob Benson
"On behalf of our family, we would like to express our many thanks for your hard work and commitment on marketing and selling our property in The Gardens. We were very impressed with your up front and honest approach, professionalism and keeping us informed of progress the whole way. The interest in the property was absolutely overwhelming, we couldn't believe the amount of genuine buyers that viewed the property, this was due to the full comprehensive marketing campaign that you had personally undertaken, and the staging presentation of the house made the property into a show home. What was truly amazing was the outcome of the sale of the property, the auction was a great success, with a genuine bidding war that resulted in a sale that was well above market value. In fact unsuccessful bidders of the property were blown away with the final selling price. We have absolutely no hesitations in recommending you to anyone who wishes to sell their property, and again we would like to say thank you very much for the wonderful service."The Clark Family
"I would also like to take this opportunity to thank both Will and Rowan for their support, patience and determination in selling my house. It has been a lengthy process, a new experience for me, but made easier with transparent information to make sound decisions. Both Will and Rowan persevered with all my questions and delays, to ensure I was comfortable with my decisions, and ultimately my house was sold. The extra mile and care taken by Rowan to assist me with plumbing maintenance, as well as liaising with various inspectors, while continuing to facilitate open-homes, has not gone without appreciation. I fully understand this was a personal touch as a professional, to ensure the process runs smoothly without any glitches and to make it less stressful and pressured for the 'seller', me. :)
Thank you both very much, and I look forward to your faces on 'SOLD' signs outside houses."Nga mihi maioha, Peata Leef
"As an overseas investor, I have mentally prepared myself for indefinite wait, endless negotiations and even possibly confusing communications. But to my amazement, Will El-Haddawi from Barfoot & Thompson was truly efficient and professional in helping me to secure the apartment of my dream without fuss - from the minute I touched base with him till the time he brought my offer to the vendor, it was a breeze and I was extremely pleased with my buy. I am sure it was due to his confidence and expertise in meeting the expectations of the Vendor and the Purchaser. From the start and even after closing the deal, he was impeccable and thoughtful in taking of my interests and needs of a new owner. I can only say," Thank you, Will! You are just awesome!"Lee
"I just to say a big thank you again, for looking after me so well, you certainly made our yesterday and truly God answered our prayers, now we can breath a little easier. I was so glad that you were honest and staight with mum, you kept me informed with everything that's happening.
Once again thank so much for all your hard work." Tali Vaka'uta
"Will did the hard yards to achieve a high price for me despite very low levels of interest in my unit. His communication and level of persistence was excellent, and he negotiated a fantastic deal; a great bloke.Horst Jeske
"Many thanks to Will and Rowan for having sold the property in the time specified and at a price that was
acceptable. Well done!"Karen Masilamani
"An experienced professional estate agent with whom we had worked successfully in the past initially recommended Will El-Haddawi to us. After talking to both Will and other agents, we chose to work with Will. We chose him because his presentation and work were professional and organised, he listened to us, and was straight up yet pleasant. He had an energy that leant us confidence in his ability to get the job done well, and it was. When we had issues to work through he went the extra miles to help us, taking on tasks I would not have expected of him, keeping us informed at all stages. We were so happy and impressed with Will we would not and do no hesitate to recommend him."Darryn McCalman
"I would like to thank you very much for all your help in selling 8/113 Wallace Road. Even though we didn't get to meet you, you made it so easy to conduct our business with you. Thank you for your professionalism and for keeping us up to date with everything as the sale progressed.
You did a wonderful job for us and we are very grateful.Beverley Montgomery
"We are very happy and were overwhelmed with Will's work with us. We have to say he took every thing on his shoulders from scratch, because we do not have experience in buying, selling or marketing. He has had long sessions with us explaining his marketing campaign and recommendations for it. He explained every single step and advised us on things that we would've ignored or regarded as not important but proved to be very important later. He was always there for us to ask him about any thing at any time. We have to apologize to him for being
some what slow in doing some points he asked us to do, but with his follow up we did it. We are very happy with the price that we sold the house for. We will recommend Will to our friends to get his help if they plan to buy or sale their houses. (we have already started doing that).Mohammed Al-Ansari & Seba Mahdi
"I write this testimonial from my recent experience of the two Real Estate Agents from Barfoot and Thompson - Will El-Haddawi and Ping Greenwood.
I found their team work and professionalism to be first class. From the moment they took instructions to market my property the advise and the moment to moment reports they [provided me of the progress proved to me that they knew what they were doing, and that they undertook their assignment with remarkable dedication which produced a sell well beyond their expectation at the auction.
I recommend them very highly to anyone wishing to market their residential property."Edwin Ozumba
"As a first home buyer I didn't know where to start or how to find what I was looking for. Will listened carefully to my wants, understood the needs of our family and spent time researching the market to present well picked properties he thought would suit us. Not only did he get it right, and quickly, but he made the whole process easy and fun. Thank you Will for finding the perfect home for us, and well within budget. If I am ever looking to purchase another home, you will be the first person I call!"Debra Stratford
"I first made contact with Will El Haddawi who was working for Barfoot & Thompson at an open home; it was one of many that I had seen. had a good talk with him about what I was looking for and the price range and did not think any more about it, until a couple of days later Will El Haddawi had a list of places to view This went on for just under a month as he was finding out the real type of house that I wanted, he was relentless and never gave up. Then out of the blue a house came on the market He got me over to view it and now I am moving into it soon. Will El Haddawi then found a buyer for my house with in three weeks a very good effort by him and his team? I found Will to be a very professional person and I would recommend him to any one who is looking for a new home."Malcolm Newman
"Thank you for your email regarding your correspondence about the sale of our house on Corsair Cres. We are very happy to have sold the house, and if the bidding at the auction had not reached a satisfactory level, we would not have sold. We want to thank you for all your hard work on our behalf for a sale, and wish you every success in real estate. Our thanks and best wishes to Joyce and Brett also. Barfoot is always our first choice for buying or selling real estate, because of your good corporate values and service.
Now we are purchasing another property by the beach (settlement next week), so you have played a vital part in helping us achieve our goals."Malcolm and Della McAllister
"I have known Will since the last three months. I met him when I was trying to purchase a property. I found Will to be very honest, sincere and friendly. I liked his quality of understanding us and our needs and to suggest an appropriate property to suit our needs, without putting excessive pressure. He appears to be very knowledgeable in getting all details about the property and suggest the right price for the same. I am fully satisfied with his services before and after the purchase and would recommend him to any person looking for houses."Vasudeva S Pai
"We have found Will to be helpful and courteous to deal with. He is always easy to get hold of and follows up on enquiries straight away. He has been professional at all times and kept us fully informed. We would recommend him to anyone buying or selling."Thanks, Vicki Sykes
"I would like to take this opportunity to thank you on behalf of my Mother and family in the recent sales of her two properties.
I particularly appreciated the consideration you showed during the planning and execution of the sale of the first property.
You were very patient and understanding in dealing with my elderly Mum's wishes and at times when the situation became awkward
your professionalism really shone. Your consistent updates and communication made a huge difference and we always felt in touch with what was happening in the market place.
I know it wasn't easy to negotiate offers through a third party and usually after hours but your patience proved it's worth in the end with the success of a sale.
Because of your understanding the second house was an easy decision for my mother and myself to use your services once again with Barfoot and Thompson.
Your honesty in relation to the market and true value of the property was invaluable information that would be the key to any successful house sale.
Your efficiency and hard work ethics certainly paid off with an extremely quick sale within 3 days of being placed on the market.
We would certainly recommend your services to anyone looking for a sales person that really does work for the vendor."Chris Piper
"We have been extremely impressed at the way Will Haddawi and the wider Barfoot & Thompson team managed the sale of our house in Mangere Bridge in May 2011.
Will was attentive to all of our wishes from our very first meeting and his constructive suggestions for the sale process worked very well.
Throughout the promotional and house inspection phase Will was very communicative about how everything was going - irrespective of whether positive or negative feedback was the order of the day. We felt informed about the inspections, items we needed to action based on customer comments, how the response to various advertising channels was going and we always felt like we were his most important customer. As a vendor based in Europe and with the differing time zone, his communication skills were especially helpful to us.
The auction team also made a highly professional impression on us and they also played a vital role in helping us achieve our desired sale price.
I would not hesitate for a moment to recommend Will and the Barfoot team to future vendors."Stephen Hart
