What other people have said

From the very first day the house was on the market, salespeople from Barfoot & Thompson brought numerous clients through my house. To me this was a real bonus. Not only did I have extremely well patronised open homes at the weekends with many people arriving early and queuing to enter. Originally I thought it would be a very stressful time, especially having open homes, but I changed my mind because James’s plan was so successful. I admired his passion, enthusiasm and dedication to his work and I was grateful for his understanding of my situation. I could not have wished for a better result. Not only was the auction rewarding, but overall the house was only on the market for little over a fortnight. I have no hesitation in recommending James Taylor as a residential salesperson and wish him well with his real estate future.”

James, at all times had a professional approach to all our dealings, but understood the personal aspects of offering properties for sale. I never felt that he had no time for me, if he couldn’t answer a query immediately he replied at the earliest opportunity. I would not hesitate to recommend James to list properties in his ‘home patch’, but also in the wider Auckland area.
M Goodman
In my recent dealings with James, I have no hesitation in recommending him as a very professional, positive and efficient agent but with no pressure. With his competence and expertise there was a very successful outcome.
J. Riley
When I met James Taylor he impressed me with his positive manner, his professionalism, and his easy style of communication. He worked hard with his Open Homes. He advertised my house well and had many people through the house. On every Open Home day people were still at the house well after the allotted time. He finalised a good sale for me in a short time. He was proficient, reliable, accomplished, and honest. I have recommended him to my friends, and would do so to anybody requiring a quality realtor.

This letter is to express our thanks and gratitude to Mr. James Taylor from your Epsom Branch. James recently helped sell our home at the above address in partnership with Mr. Lance Pemberton. At all time James was helpful, prompt, proficient and reliable. We always felt that he was working in out interests, and have no hesitation in recommending him as a first class salesperson, polite yet friendly and a pleasure to know.
Gordon & Jo Thompson
The initial meeting to discuss the selling of our property set the pattern for a very successful and stress-free transaction. Both James and Lance gave valuable and professional advice on pre-sale preparation and their willingness and practical assistance in this regard was very much appreciated. Through their commitment and expertise our property had the best of advertising, was sold in a very short time and we were pleased with the outcome. Every aspect of the marketing and selling process was smoothly and pleasantly handled and resulted in a very successful and rewarding auction . Thank you both for all your assistance and friendly approachable manner . We wish you well in all your future property promotions.
