“Raj shows a single minded dedication to the job, Kept me informed at all times, Was a friend, philosopher and guide to me during this trying time, and was determined to succeed despite all odds. He is a tough negotiator on price and seemed fair to both the parties. Raj was simply brilliant.”
Joe & Teressa

"“Raj Mitra took the stress out of selling our home. He delivered an honest market expectation and a straight forward market campaign which we were able to oversee via his thorough updates and progression statuses. We gave him our home to sell as we believed he is an honest and realistic agent which is hard to come by, he made no false promises just realistic expectations based on his researched market data. We sold in Auction and both the service and price was exceptionally favourable from Raj and the team at Barfoot and Thompson. In terms of an agent who works for the vendor we believe Raj is second to none.”

“Raj seems to me to show exceptional dedication to his job with excellent communication skills, a very friendly nature and a willingness to take all the time necessary to achieve success for his clients. He is a very tough negotiator on price but also very concerned that his approach is seen as fair, so cannot be faulted on his knowledge of the market.
Raj goes the extra step to make his clients feel comfortable and is a reassuring ally in the difficult business of buying and selling”.
