"After almost 40 years living in a villa on a large section in Mt Albert, my wife and I decided it was time to move into a brand new, low maintenance home.
Having been involved in subdivisional infrastructure work, we decided that a new build ticked most boxes, and started our search for a three bedroomed house in our chosen area.
We found a suitable house on TradeMe, and contacted the agent, Shane Anderson, of Barfoot & Thompson.
After dealing with Agents from other agencies, with mostly negative results, dealing with Shane was a breath of fresh air. Here was an agent who was enthusiastic and energetic, and not only did we decide to purchase the house from him, but we also engaged hime to sell our old house in Mt Albert, which he did (so). He was in constant contact with us throughout the whole process, and nothing was too much for him. Thanks to Shane the whole exercise was relatively stress free.
Since our shift to the new home, Shane has been in regular contact with us, and often pops in for a chat to find out how we are going and if there are any problems that need sorting out.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Shane to anyone wanting the services of a first class real estate agent."Evan & Correne James
We have lived in Coatesville for 37 years, and nine of those years we lived in the house we had built when we subdivided our land.
We sold our old house through Barfoot and Thompson and found their service so good that we decided to use them again when we decided to downsize and sell the house and remaining two acres.
During the period of marketing and open homes we got to know a number of agents and found them all very efficient and pleasant to deal with but Shane Anderson brought an extra quality to the process. He seemed to have a special talent for matching people who were looking for a place with the properties available and not only did he find just the right people to buy our house, but also helped to find the perfect place for us.
He was always ready to help and answer our questions and managed to make the whole process easy for us and even enjoyable thanks to his wonderful sense of humour.Marianne & Gerrit Stolte
Our family greatly appreciated Shane's help and skill to not only suggest the smarter angles about marketing our mother's home but we also valued his practical help and tips for interior adjustments and some landscaping too. He was terrific with the tradies. Most of all, at a time when the market had slowed Shane was able to hold his line and get us our price on a multiple offer, that's integrity!" Doug Vause
Right form the beginning, Shane went beyond the expectation I had of the real estate agent's role in selling the property. Through his efforts and personal approach, a superb result was achieved."Murray Bell
We initially tried to sell our property privately because of some very unpleasant dealings with other real estate agents in the past. After 3 weeks of open homes and no leads, we discovered Shane selling a house up the road. We were impressed with his direct, honest approach. He had our place on the market 2 days after we signed him up, with a beautifully crafted ad. He reached out to the Barfoot's network and found a buyer through another agent - something I know a lot of listing agents try to avoid because it cuts their commission. It was sold after 10 days on the market for an exceptional price. Shane put us first every step of the way. It was a real pleasure having him sell our house."Brad Hadley
"A big thank you Shane for your hard work that has yielded our desired price. We appreciate the time, effort and practical help from you and going the extra mile to help us secure the sale".Gordon & Lyn
Shane and Jenni are a great team who provide excellent services in their efforts of selling the house. From giving advices, house staging, marketing and even baking cookies for the open homes. They are very detailed, communicative and meeting expectation to achieve the best result within the time frame.
I highly recommend them if you are thinking of selling your property with a great result.Francisca Wahjudi
Shane made the process of buying a house at auction very clear and straight forward - his advice and recommendations allowed me to bid with confidence and buy a property that is ideal for our family needs. At all times, Shane has been highly professional and a real pleasure to deal with. If you are thinking of purchasing a property, I highly recommend Shane.Carley Nicholson
I used Shane after I found out about him from a friend that he was a good agent to work with. On meeting Shane I got a great breakdown of his three step plan to sell my property and he gave great advice on what I should do to be able to sell and also what needed touching up to present my property in the right way. We went to auction and my house didn't sell so naturally I was very worried... But Shane had a plan to re-market and get more people through at open homes. His plan worked a treat! My house sold for a very good price and I attribute that to Shane's hard work and knowledge of the market. He is relaxed, humorous, very professional and I would recommend him to anyone trying to sell their property.Nathan Stanton
