This reputation opens doors for you, helping you grow your business quicker.
We believe in good value. And good values.
Despite a constantly changing property market, there are some things that have always remained the same. As a family owned company, we still hold firm to the values and sense of fairness on which our business was built over 87 years ago. Values like trust, honesty, integrity and transparency, and, importantly, putting people first. We’re not just focused on our bottom line, we’re focused on finding ways for you, and your customers, to succeed.
Two families stand behind all of our sold signs.
To this day Barfoot & Thompson is still owned and managed by members of the founding families. Our company Directors, Garth Barfoot, Peter Thompson and Kiri Barfoot are the son, grandson and granddaughter respectively of the original owners.
What’s more, this sense of ‘family’ extends throughout our entire company. Along with the founding families, many of our salespeople have been with the company for years. At last count, 18% of our staff had been with us for 10 years or more.* Imagine the experience and knowledge available for you to tap into!
