In 25 years selling real estate in Auckland - I have seen it all, sold it all and lived to tell the tale. Weathering the global financial crisis of 2008, It was my dedicated work ethic and consistently high standard of service, which ensured my award as a top agent emerged unscathed.

Facilitating hundreds of property transactions, my knowledge of Auckland property is that of an industry expert, having practical experience in a variety of fields - residential sales, commercial sales and leasing, land and development, sales of reclad properties and asset recovery.

With real estate in my lineage, it's been a thrill for me to watch the Auckland-city skyline change over the past ten years. As apartment living increases in popularity, I understand that property in the Eastern Bays is at a premium and that my clients require an exceptional level of service.

John's return to Barfoot & Thompson is a long-awaited one, and we're thrilled to have an agent with such knowledge, experience and credentials on-board.

Benefitting from his extensive networks, and the repeat business which has impressed clients for years, John is heavily involved in community projects and is a member of the Saint Kentigern Old Collegians Committee, and organises the annual Saint Kentigern College Old Collegians Golf Day.

Relentlessly determined in every aspect of his life, John has competed in over 20 triathlons and duathlons and sees this tenacity as a vital contributor to his professional success. Yet, despite his business nous and fierce negotiation skills, he is a family man at heart - preferring to spend his down time with his two boys, playing golf, tennis or anything in the water.

With experience, sensitivity and a glittering track-record - John Howard is the natural choice for your next property transaction.
