"The service and personal attention we received from Sham Lal of Barfoot & Thompson in selling two properties for us was exceptional. Their ability to handle all aspects of the auction process was commendable and professional in every way. Sham was always accessible and willing to answer and explain any questions regarding the sale we had. I would not hesitate to recommend Sham to anyone either selling or buying real estate."

Good marketing skill and help me to present the house in its best presentation, the result that has achieved is remarkable. Once again, thank you for your kind assistance and will recommend you to my friends if they need to buy or sell any properties."
"I am impressed by the professionalism demonstrated by Sham & Sidney in the selling of our house. From the first site visit to the settlement of the transaction, they have provided us information in advance on every single step. So we are pretty confident about what is going to happen. The marketing strategy is excellent that even before the first open home, we had already received offer for a pre-auction. The final selling price is exceeding our expectation by far. I have no reservation in recommending the service of Sidney and Sham to anyone who is considering selling houses."
During the processes of buying and selling houses, my family and I have come to know Sham Lal whom we highly appreciate and would like to recommend to other customers. Sham is great. He has been friendly, patient, thoughtful and passionate. With persistence and dedication in providing first-hand information on new listings, we found our dream house. Yet without the precious advice and experience in auction, our dream can hardly come true. What impresses us most is the way he helped us in selling our house. We are truly grateful to their sincerity and diligence in securing potential buyers by all possible means to the last minute. The remarkable result of our auction today is attributable to their concerted effort. It's proud to have Sham in your branch; He is role model for others in Barfoot & Thompson. We would highly recommend Sham to friends far and near."

"We chose Sham Lal of Barfoot & Thompson to market our East Auckland home after interviewing three other agents because he was most approachable and believable of all the agents we saw. We were presented with a very clear marketing plan and schedule and we were provided with some very sound advice in regard to how to approach this sale. The sale was completed far quicker than we had anticipated and with a minimum of fuss and most importantly we believe Sham secured the best possible price for our property. All in all this was a very good experience."
"Over the last year, I have had the pleasure of selling my two properties through Jessie Lu. Some agents come and go but Jessie is passionate and committed to her profession. She obviously loves what she is doing. Drawing from the experience of the two sales, I believe the selling process is a team effort between the vendor and agent. She will work with you throughout the whole process, giving guidance on how to maximize the value of your property. Jessie is a great motivator but at the same time pragmatic. Her negotiation skills are excellent and she understands the emotions and interests of the buyer and seller. She is tenacious and will work tirelessly towards securing that deal. I've been impressed with the service of Jessie and have no hesitation in using her again. Thank-you Jessie."
"I would like to express our appreciation for the recent dealings with you over the sale of our property in Half Moon Bay. It was fortunate you did make the final sale and at all times, from our initial meeting you have been very professional. The tender process was disappointing but with some assurance we moved onto the next phase and a deal was signed. Nothing was ever too much trouble, you communicated well and showed care and respect for the property at all times. Barfoot & Thompson can be proud of you being in their sales team and if you ever need any future reference, please contact me."
