Barfoot & Thompson expands service offering to include Body Corporate

Leading real estate company, Barfoot & Thompson has expanded its business portfolio with the purchase of Body Corporate Specialists Ltd (BCS), to create ‘Barfoot & Thompson Body Corporate’.

The newly established entity will be led by BCS director Andrew Yovich and retain the established, well-respected, specialist BCS team.

With 15 years’ experience as a Body Corporate advisor, Andrew is aptly placed to lead Barfoot & Thompson in its new property specialty.

“I’m thrilled at the opportunity to become a part of the wider real estate company built on trust and integrity, and with such a strong legacy in Auckland,” says Andrew, who established BCS in 1999.

“Bodies Corporate play an intrinsic role in multi-unit property management, and my team has extensive experience providing the vital services needed to ensure they operate at a high standard. Our main goal has always been, and continues to be, to provide the best possible customer service; a goal shared by the team at Barfoot & Thompson.”

With the proposed Unitary Plan set to change the housing landscape in Auckland, it is an astute move for Barfoot & Thompson to provide another specialist property service.

“Establishing Barfoot & Thompson Body Corporate marks an exciting time for our whole team as we continue to adapt our services to suit the changing nature of housing in Auckland,” says Peter Thompson, Managing Director of Barfoot & Thompson.

“Andrew and his team have vast experience managing a variety of different types of Bodies Corporate, so we are delighted to have them on board.”

Barfoot & Thompson Body Corporate exists to help unit-holders manage the complexities of multi-unit living environments. The new division will provide a full range of body corporate support services.

About Body Corporate
A Body Corporate entity is comprised of all unit holders in a unit title development, and is responsible for a range of management, financial and administrative matters related to common property, as set out in the Unit Titles Act 2010.

Barfoot & Thompson knows Auckland best. It is the city’s leading real estate company, selling around one in three Auckland residential homes, significantly ahead of all other competitor brands.
