Barfoot & Thompson to open on Waiheke Island

Barfoot & Thompson to open on Waiheke Island

Increasing demand for real estate services on Waiheke Island has prompted Auckland property market leader Barfoot & Thompson to open a new branch in Oneroa.

The Waiheke branch will be open by early May in Pendragon Mall. Barfoot & Thompson has secured the prime commercial space currently occupied by Pendragon bookshop.

Director Peter Thompson says Barfoot & Thompson has been interested in the Waiheke market for some time.

“There has been enormous growth in the Waiheke real estate market both in property values and buyer interest. We are getting consistently high levels of inquiry from both mainlanders and Waiheke Islanders wanting to list and sell.

“We’re looking forward to bringing our high levels of service and professionalism to not only Waiheke residents, but also the many mainland residents with property interests on the island.”

The Waiheke branch brings the total number of Barfoot & Thompson outlets to 56 covering the Auckland and Northland regions.
