Paul Sun - Barfoot & Thompson
Totally committed to achieving the best possible outcomes for his vendors, Paul has delivered impressive results for his vendors over the years. Since entering the real estate industry in 2003, Paul has built a reputation for professional service where strong communication and negotiation skills give him a real edge. The fact most of his clients are referrals or come through repeat business says a lot about the quality of his service.
Born in China, Paul began his career as an environmental engineer looking after air quality. But he refocused when in New Zealand and switched to computer software development. The Dot Com bubble came along which saw him seeking new opportunities and he set his sights on New Zealand’s residential property market.
Equipped with his strong IT background, he takes advantage of sophisticated marketing strategies with creative solutions tailored to attract specific buying groups. Having worked in the industry for many years, Paul understands buyer behaviour. So he knows how to present and promote the property to appeal to potential buyers. In this way, he is able to create a competitive situation that maximises the selling price.
Paul’s ability to communicate in both English and Mandarin has also been a real asset, particularly in the Epsom market. He has lived in Epsom/Mt Eden for 20 years with his wife and two children. Paul understands the attributes and amenities of the area, especially the importance of the school zones.
Passionate about his chosen career, Paul loves working for Barfoot & Thompson, a company he says has the best network and the biggest market share in Auckland. Working hard as part of a winning team assures excellent results for clients.
