Team Uptown move into Auckland City

Team Uptown move into Auckland City

23 June 2017
With the property market cooling, it has become more important than ever to be selective about who sells your property.
Mark Barry, of Harcourts Team Uptown in Auckland City, says after several years of rapid growth, sales are not as easy as they once were.
“A year ago, you could be fairly confident your property would sell quickly at a good price. Now selling is not as simple as listing your property. Vendors need to choose a sales consultant who will be creative, work hard and guide you carefully through the sales process.”
It is in this market that Mark and Anita Barry have started the new Team Uptown office on Queen Street.
The team will be servicing the CBD and city fringe, with a specialty in apartments.
Mark and Anita have worked in real estate for over 30 years, and have seen many cycles of the property market.
Mark says they are confident of achieving the best possible results for their vendors, no matter what the circumstance.
“There are a lot of new real estate agents leaving the industry now because they have only worked in a heated market and are finding the change difficult.
“That’s not us. We will work closely and creatively with our vendors to ensure they get where they want to be, whether the market is rising, falling or flat.”
In addition to sales, Team Uptown has a strong property management business.
Led by Anita, each of their property managers has a maximum number of properties they will take on.
“We are not interested in looking after 200 or 300 properties per property manager. We want each of our landlords to feel confident their property will receive individual attention. We don’t want issues to be overlooked.”
Equally, Anita says the team have the best interests of their tenants at heart.
“We won’t take on properties unless the property is in good condition and the landlord is committed to maintaining it for their tenants.”
Harcourts CEO Chris Kennedy says he is proud to welcome Mark and Anita to the Harcourts family.
“Mark, Anita and their team are good operators. They care about their clients, they are ethical and they know the market extremely well. It’s fantastic to have them representing Harcourts in Auckland City.”
