"Passionate about Real Estate"
This sentence states my commitment to the real estate profession. Real estate is not just a career option for me but a passion, and is something I enjoy immensely.
People describe me as "a great salesperson, full of energy with a passion for real estate" and I also like to think that I am all of these things. Coupled with core principles of honesty and integrity, my clients have utmost confidence in my ability to deliver.
A high achiever with a can-do attitude, all results for all my clients are outstanding. My past experience in trading/sales roles and my knowledge of the dynamics of the real estate market means that I understand how to correctly position your property in the market. My sense of humour and gregarious nature will put you at ease during this stressful period of selling or buying property.
I will leave no stone unturned until I get the best results for you. I am very committed and believe in going the extra mile to get these results. Call me, if you are considering listing your property or looking to purchase and rest assured, together we can get the best outcome!
"Zaki helped us with selling and buying our property. Throughout the process we found him to be very soft-spoken, courteous and obliging. He kept us informed and communicated with us at all stages, at times going out of his way too”.
Thank you Zaki, we appreciate your help.

I would like to express my thanks for your hard work in helping me sell my property at Mount Roskill. You are good at communication, a good listener, understanding and quick to respond. You are a responsible person. Keeping me informed with progress reports every time after open home each week.
You are well experienced in the trade and giving friendly, helpful, and valuable advice from time to time making the sales process smoother and easier. You take away all the hassles of selling the house.
I have no reservation in recommending you to all I know who need your service.
Hi Zaki. I would like to express my appreciation for the very professional way you handled the sale of my property at Temuka Gardens, Auckland. You were very enthusiastic and helpful every step of the way and your knowledge and confidence made the process a breeze. I will not hesitate to recommend you to anyone who needs services in the real estate market.
All the very best in the future,Dr Narmal Singh
We wish to testify that Mr Zaki Murumkar of Barfoot & Thompson Blockhouse Bay, was successful in negotiating the sale of our house at Freeland Avenue, Mt Roskill. Zaki was at all times very polite and considerate of our circumstances. We will be recommending him to others we hear of looking for a residential sale. Thank you Zaki for your friendly and helpful service.
Having selected Zaki for the sale of our House at Halsey Drive, Lynfield and buying a dream home in Hobsonville, I wish to endorse him as a professional and successful real estate agent. From the initial meeting through to settlement Zaki kept me informed every step of the way. Zaki was extremely dedicated and totally committed to marketing my home to gain the best possible sale price. He had my complete confidence that all potential buyers were contacted and I was kept fully informed with both informal reports after each open home and a full written report of all activity at the end of each week of the marketing period. Although I know Zaki was very busy during this time, I felt like marketing my home was his only priority. I was very happy with the outcome of the marketing campaign.
He listened and understood our needs and translated these into actions throughout the sales process. He was consistently punctual in his appointments, kept us well informed about progress and was very accommodating to our needs. Most importantly he demonstrated that he worked hard with the buyers to get the sale.
"It is a tough task to locate a suitable property. Once you have done that, the next steps are even more daunting and challenging. You need to be sure at every stage that you are being consulted/advised properly and sincerely. You would consider yourself lucky to get someone to help you through the process. I found myself exactly that by contacting Zaki. Throughout the labyrinth of this process, Zaki was with me to offer help, and support with a professional approach. I highly recommend him, if you are looking for a clean deal."
We were informed on a daily basis of any and all developments. He is a credit to his profession and a great asset to Barfoot & Thompson and carries unqualified recommendation.
I was more than satisfied with the services that Zaki provided us. Zaki has a strong drive to see his customers happy, and genuinely had our best interests at heart. This encouraged us to give him our full endorsement when purchasing our home. Zaki is professional, patient, and works with integrity which nowadays is a delightful trait to have and share. His manner is perfect for what he does, and we would definitely work with him again.N & R Rahim - Home Buyers, 2019
Zaki was very professional and took note of our requirements for what we were looking for with our next home. His knowledge and advice was very valuable during the process of buying our current home. We were overseas during this purchase time and Zaki did all the dealing with the previous owners etc on our behalf without hassling us during our trip. And also initiated some of the processes to ensure we did not have to deal with any last minute hiccups. He was a great support during the whole run. Thank you Zaki.
I am writing this e-mail to let you know how much your helpful services were appreciated. You have helped me to reach one of my biggest goal : to have a shelter for the rest of my life and a legacy for my Kids and Grand Children when it will be time for me to join my Ancestors. I have been in the property you helped me to get for one week, I am very happy with the purchase. Every morning when I look through the window it is done for all the day: a non stop big smile on my face. I have been talking about you to my friends, family and colleagues. To tell you the truth, I have been advertising for you. Who knows may be one or more times I will redirect an other customer toward your company. Your Boss is lucky to have you. You have gone beyond the miles while helping me to get into property ownership. You have kept your promise: the first time I met you at an open home you said to me " I will do everything I canto help to buy this house if you like it." I did not believe you, thinking that you was just talking to make me happy.
Thanks again for every thing Zaki.
We're really happy with Zaki's service. Since Day 1, he has provided an excellent help to us from... giving us constant updates if anyone is about to put an offer, guiding us through the "offer" stage, responding to all our queries, accommodating our request for building inspection/gas inspection, helping in making our settlement process a breeze... to finally giving us the key to our first home :) He even gave us a very thoughtful gift on our move day. He's so accommodating, friendly, always ready and happy to help. We'll be happy dealing with him again for our next home purchase.Anj and Aster
Just like to thank you from me and my family for helping us finding our dream home. We were most impressed with your professionalism, honesty and pointing out everything upfront which helped us to make an informed decision. We felt that most of the agents would normally don't want to know you once the deal is done but you were there with us to guide us till the final settlement day. We would be recommending you to our friends and family.
Again thanks for your help and support.
Zaki, we really wanted to thank you for your support in helping us finding our first home in New Zealand.
Unlike a typical real estate agent, you have been very personal in understanding our needs and requirements as a buyer. Although we were first home buyer in ever competitive Auckland housing market, your valuable suggestions and guidance helped us in making confident decision. In addition, you understand the Auckland market really well and can predict the trends. These qualities give you an edge and have been instrumental in our decision for going to Barfoot auction where we ultimately ended up buying the property.
We wish you all the very best for your future endeavors and will definitely recommend you to our acquaintances who intend to buy new property.
Zaki, the man who looks after you and your requirement - Before the sale, during the sale and most important after the sale. Will hold your hand till the end, till he feels you are satisfied.Vins Grover
"If you're thinking about listing your home and you're not sure which agent to list with, may I suggest that you list with Zaki from Barfoot & Thompson. While it might not seem that the listing agent matters, let me tell you - it does.
Not all situations are alike. You may need to sell quickly, you may want to get the highest price even if it takes a bit longer, you might want to do improvements but aren't sure what will matter. Trust Zaki, I listed my home with two other agents before Zaki and neither understood my unique situation. They both used the same strategy they had used with every other client when the real estate business was easier... and they both panicked when a sale didn't happen.
Zaki was patient. We worked the selling plan together, and he gave wise counsel along the way. He suggested some judicious updating, tweaked the plan as we went along and we hit the goals. Not only he managed to arrange the contractors to carry out the work for me but also assisted buyer to find the tenant, resulting a quick settlement rather than waiting for standard 6-8 weeks. He has provided total end to end solution. Most importantly, we sold my home for more than my prior agents thought possible.
If you want to see "SOLD" sign in front of your house, if you want a trusted partner, you want Zaki.
Wishing Zaki a successful year & many more to come.
With gratefulness for all you did."
"When we decided to sell our father's house we looked at recent sales in the area and Barfoot & Thompson were clear leaders in sales over the past months. We contacted the Blockhouse Bay branch who responded rapidly to our call.
Zakiy Murumkar visited us and we immediately noted his outwardly quiet and unassuming manner which is underlined by a strong motivation to provide both a good service and to achieve the potential of the property. Zaki shared his knowledge of the Blockhouse Bay area and his knowledge of the potential development opportunities for the property. Zaki ensured we understood the processes leading up to the auction and kept us informed of progress from both the open days and their promotion of the property .
A number of open days were conducted with good turn-outs. Zaki provided regular feedback on potential buyers and what the possible sale price could be. We were pleased when we received a very good pre-auction offer largely due to Zaki's hard work.
We are convinced that the great outcome of the auction was due to the knowledge, motivation and sheer determination to reach the best possible outcome for us and would recommend Barfoot & Thompson to others selling in the Bay."
"I'm writing to thank you for helping us with our new investment property purchase at Hillsborough. We are grateful for your excellent services, sometimes going beyond your office hours. The entire process was seamless and smooth. We appreciate your honesty and answering all the questions we had about this property truthfully. I have to add that we liked dealing with you because you were patient with us and did not feel "rushed" or "pushy".
You will reached great heights Zaki because of your hardwork and customer obsession.
Thanks and kind regards."
