Women Leading In Real Estate Sales Statistics

Female agents are leading the way in Auckland’s residential sales statistics according to recent performance results from the City’s premier real estate company, Barfoot & Thompson.

With more than $200m in total sales combined, Nadja Court, Yvonne Wang and Jane Wang have been announced as the company’s top three salespeople out of more than 1400 agents across Auckland and Northland. Together the trio have sold more than 300 homes and at average price of $721,000.

Managing Director Peter Thompson says that over the last decade, the number of women agents featuring in Barfoot & Thompson’s list of Top 25 salespeople has steadily increased. This year and last the number of female salespeople has outnumbered males (15 out of the 2013 Top 25 were female).

Mairangi Bay-based agent Nadja Court returns as the company’s #1 residential salesperson after winning the same title last year. With nearly 15 years’ experience and having regularly placed in the Top 25, Nadja’s success is credited to her total commitment to meet the needs of her clients and their families.
From the same branch and with only a small margin separating her from the pole position, Yvonne Wang is described as a hard-working and determined agent who works tirelessly to get the best results for her clients. 

In at number three, Jane Wang from Panmure is a consistently high performer who was first recognised as Rookie of the Year in 2004 and who this year marks her 10th year in a row in the Top 25.

Meanwhile, new female agent Kelly Zhang was awarded the coveted Rookie of the Year title as well as placing 23rd in the Top 25. During her first financial year in real estate the talented marketer sold more than 70 properties and even set the record in her branch for selling 19 homes in just one month.

Mr Thompson says he is pleased to see continuing diversity in the company’s Top 25 each year. “As the Auckland market continues to grow and diversify, we are seeing the same in our salespeople.  No two of our 1400-strong team are the same – all bring with them different professional backgrounds, skills and approaches to getting the best results for their clients.”

“All of our Top 25 agents are a representation of the passion and tenacity our people have for the business of real estate.”
