Access to hundreds of rental properties

With hundreds of houses for rent every month, we have access to a wide range of properties to suit your needs, so we’re confident you’ll be able to find what you’re looking for. Start your search today or speak to a property manager.

You can trust your money is in safe hands

Unlike private landlords, Barfoot & Thompson is a member of Real Estate Institute of New Zealand (REINZ) and most of our business is regulated under the Real Estate Agents Act.

When you sign up through us, your bond is lodged with the Bond Centre who holds it in trust. If the tenants and the landlord cannot agree on the amount being claimed, either of them may apply to the Tenancy Tribunal to resolve the matter. Your rent is paid into our audited trust account and then onto your landlord.

Action and maintenance when you need it

Because our property managers are all based in Barfoot & Thompson branches across Auckland and Northland, they are available when you’re in need - meaning they can help sort out any maintenance problems or issues quickly and effectively.

We're local to Auckland and Northland

With property management teams across Auckland and Northland, we have all your local communities covered. All our teams know their communities inside and out and have the on-the ground knowledge to help you find the right location and the right property that matches your needs.

From schools, to transport routes and new developments, your local team can help you find out all you need to know about the area. Speak to a property manager.

Expert and legal knowledge

All our property managers are highly trained and familiar with the Residential Tenancies Act 1986 & Amendments and the rights and obligations for both landlords and tenants, so you can be sure you have everything you need to make the right decision at the right time. 

As trained professionals, our property managers are on hand to deal with any issues that arise, quickly and effectively, ensuring you always get the best service possible.

We’re family owned

Barfoot & Thompson is still family owned and managed after more than 90 years in Auckland real estate. Built on the guiding principles of honesty, integrity and service, we still operate with those same values at the core of our business.
