Profession Recognises Barfoot & Thompson As ‘The Best’

MEDIA RELEASE

Real Estate Profession Recognises Barfoot & Thompson As ‘The Best’

For the second time in three months, Barfoot & Thompson has been named as New Zealand’s best real estate agency.

The latest accolade came at last night’s New Zealand Real Estate Institute Award for Excellence event held in Auckland, where it was judged Agency of the Year, All Disciplines. Four of its salespeople, and two of its branches, also received individual recognition.

While relatively new, the REINZ Award for Excellence event attracted a high number of entries from real estate agencies and agents throughout the country.

Three months ago, Barfoot & Thompson was named the ‘best real estate agency in New Zealand’ at the International Property Awards, a global award event, with the Asia Pacific ceremony being held in Malaysia.

“We are particularly proud of the fact that Yvonne Wang achieved recognition as best residential salesperson in New Zealand, and Lily Liu, best rising star in residential,” said Peter Thompson, Managing Director of Barfoot & Thompson.

“In part Yvonne’s success is based on the incredible support team she has built around herself, and she freely acknowledges the contribution they, and the company, have made to her success.

“While Lily has been in real estate for less than a year, her commitment, self-motivation and focus on customer service marks her out as a person with a great future ahead of her.

“We see winning the overall award as recognition by our peers of the standards we are achieving, and that is always the ultimate accolade.

“It is a tribute to the commitment our people, and the organisation, make to delivering unmatchable customer service, backed by total professionalism and integrity.

“We respect the trust placed in us by vendors and are passionate about delivering the very best results possible for them.

“Given the number and quality of entries, to have four of our salespeople, and two branches recognised as among the very best in New Zealand is an outstanding achievement, and underlines our passion and determination to be the very best at everything we do, and to attract and hold the profession’s best talent.”

Awards made to Barfoot & Thompson at last night’s (July 22) awards ceremony were:

Residential Salesperson, Rising Star Lily Liu, Henderson, Auckland
