Owen Roberts - Barfoot & Thompson
Proud to call myself a Kiwi nowadays, I came to New Zealand from London with my wife, Donna, on an OE back in 2011. We fell in love with the outdoor lifestyle and beautiful surroundings and quickly realised that it would be the perfect place for us to raise a family together.
By 2013 we had our first child on the way and were looking to buy our first home together. Evenings and weekends were spent trawling through real estate listings and viewing properties. We eventually found a home in South Auckland that proved to be both a great start and an excellent investment!
A passion for real estate was born and I decided to make a career change to join the industry. I found my feet quickly, utilising the skills gained from my background in business and education. My project management and marketing experience proved particularly invaluable in allowing me to deliver a professional and unique approach that is highly valued by my clients.
Around three years ago I was honoured to be approached to make the move to Barfoot & Thompson. Working for a business with such a proud history appealed to me; as did being part of a New Zealand owned and family operated business. I appreciate the trust my clients place in me and value being able to ‘hand on heart’ say that I have the largest Auckland real estate network and best resources behind me.
My business has gone from strength to strength to become one of the top choices in South Auckland. My commitment to my clients remains the foundation of what I do and I pride myself on the excellent reputation I have built. Living locally, we love our community and are thankful for the opportunities and experiences that we can give to our two wonderful daughters.
