Top Salesperson, Glen Eden Branch, 6 months ending September 2021

#7 Sales Partnership, West Auckland Region, to end March 2020

Catherine has a particular ability to show clients homes at their best. She uses her 'eye for design' and home staging skills to position properties to appeal to a multitude of potential buyers. This complimentary service alone - has added significant $$$$ to a sale price, and together with her sought after marketing system - has achieved outstanding results for their clients.

Lindsay is known for his knowledge in legal, council requirements, building consents, and his technical and analytical skills to help clients source information and make informed decisions.

Catherine Henderson and Lindsay Hooke do not do average. They are high achievers who expect the best results for their clients - and deliver time and time again. They are not content with the 'usual real estate service' provided by others and strive to raise the bar so clients experience the true benefits of dealing with specialist property professionals.

Eric joined the team several years ago Eric's strengths lie in his ability to work with people from all walks of life; he loves being able to serve and work with people to achieve their dreams and thinks that making a difference in people's lives is an incredible privilege.

For this reason, Eric has a unique ability to build positive relationships with clients. He believes that honesty and integrity are key building blocks to a successful client-agent relationship, and approaches all his transactions with open communication lines. Speaking English, Mandarin and Hokkien, he also has access to a wide network of contacts.

Both Catherine and Lindsay have been involved in the property market for over 23 years, so have witnessed multiple changes during this time. They thrive on keeping up to date with the latest technology, systems, and initiatives available and are on the pulse of what is needed to generate a great sales for their clients.

In saying that - they also believe some things never change - the need to provide the best price, best experience, best result, and best service for their clients. And because they have a unique ability in working with both vendors and buyers - they often create and negotiate a successful property match where others may fail....

They have developed a savvy system to market, show properties, create interest, help simplify the buying process and negotiate strong prices for their clients. Part of this includes maximising the strength of each others' experience and skill set.

Lindsay is known for his knowledge of legal, council requirements, building consents, and his technical and analytical skills to help clients source information and make informed decisions.

Catherine and Lindsay are open and transparent from the start - they don't overprice your property to secure the listing, but would rather help their clients reach the best possible price in the market so you can actively start planning your next move in life and be thrilled with the outcome.

They feel a clear sense of community and have supported and been involved with many local organisations, groups, schools, and foundations.

They work regularly with a variety of clients from first home buyers, investors, families needing larger homes, and property developers, to couples looking to downsize and move out of the large family home. So if you want skills, high achievers, true professionalism and outstanding results - Catherine and Lindsay will deliver!

Catherine and Lindsay were totally outstanding in advising and supporting us through the process of selling our house. It is the second time we have worked with them.

A highly motivated, dynamic team, we especially appreciated their calm, professional demeanor, lively sense of humour, in-depth understanding of the nature of the market and their knowledge and expertise in how to prepare and present our property.

We would thoroughly recommend them.

Mark and Ulrike (Green Bay)

I have nothing but praise and respect for your Team who managed the just-completed sale of my residence. Catherine, Eric and Lindsay, true professionals, were a pleasure to liaise with as they ensured all went according to plan, and smoothly and made sure that my interests were paramount and protected at all times.

I am particularly impressed with the efforts of Lindsay following sale confirmation when most people would consider the job was done and dusted. In the week before settlement day, a number of personal issues arose and I was unable to concentrate on getting the property into a state acceptable to the terms of the sales contract and I was certain to invoke contract stipulate penalties. However, Lindsay stepped up and went well beyond my wildest expectations in organising and supervising the complete clean up of the property. He was in regular contact with me during this time, explaining just what was needed, making recommendations, organising the removal of vehicles and general rubbish, and overseeing the entire operation. Lindsay went the extra mile and in my personal and working lifetime I have never been more impressed with such a level and quality of service. I will never forget this experience.

Thank you for having such people in your organisation. Barfoot & Thompson can have no doubt that at every opportunity I will be recommending your company, this branch and relating the incredible service I was privileged to experience.

Geoff Campbell

We have brought and sold our homes with Catherine, Lindsay and Eric, within a week! On initial impressions, Catherine had great vision to ignite our imagination of what could be, but she let the property we were looking at speak for itself. When it came to the serious business of negotiations everything was very matter of fact. There was no messing about and everyone got the outcomes they were looking for! I would highly recommend to anybody to use the services of the team at Barfoot and Thompson. Thanks very much!

Stephen and Emma

An absolutely effortless experience working with Catherine, Linsday and Eric. They marketed our property to perfectly fit with it's characteristics and we were over the moon with the results come auction day.


Catherine Lindsay and Eric went beyond expectations in the sale of my mother's property in Lynfield. They kept us up to date at all times but it was the little touches that were so appreciated. My mother is 90 and Eric would come around and bring her rubbish bins etc. They helped with the guidance of the move to the retirement village. Anything we needed they were only too helpful to be of service. Highly recommend Catherine Lindsay and Eric to sell properties.

Lee, James Tyler Crescent

We thought selling a house would be a daunting task, especially never having sold a property before. We were lucky enough to find Eric, Catherine and Lindsay who made selling our home less stressful and to our surprise, enjoyable! They lived up to their promises and went beyond expectations to provide us with the best service possible. I would certainly recommend them to anyone selling or even buying a home. They look after YOUR best interest. Thanks again, team!

Melanie Clark

They went over and above to sell my property and were sensitive to my needs when looking for another property for me.

I felt that I was treated as a person, not a client keep up the good work and thanks.

Jan Bridgeman

We would like to sincerely thank Catherine and Lindsay for selling our property in a super quick time. Even though we are located in a relatively remote rural position, you gave us every care and attention.

We found you to be highly professional and knowledgeable, great communicators, incredibly sensitive to our needs and very efficient in your negotiations. We have had dealings with many real estate agents over the years and you are the very best we have dealt with. We will be highly recommending your services to all our friends and family.

Christine & Bill Boardman

I would like to thank EVERYONE involved in the sale of my home and Catherine and Lindsay. The auction was a new experience for me and this team helped me to trust their advice totally. I am very happy with the overall decision I made to have Barfoot & Thompson as my Real Estate agents.

Sandra Hall

Great communication and very helpful. I thought selling our house was going to be a very daunting process, it was made easy by Catherine and Lindsay. Nothing was a problem, so will definitely be using them to sell my next place.


We were very impressed with the professional service we received from Catherine and Lindsay.

They went above and beyond to help prepare the property for sale and gave invaluable advice. I would highly recommend them to anyone selling a property

Vanessa and Kevin

From the outset, Catherine and Lindsay were total professionals to deal with. Knowledgable and warm without being aggressive or pushy, and always treated our tenants with sensitivity and respect. Throughout the entire marketing campaign, they were available to answer questions and quick to offer reassurance whenever I voiced doubts at the process. We were thrilled with the end result (a quick sale at a higher price than we had initially anticipated) and have absolutely no hesitation in recommending their services.

Rachel Williamson

The personal service that you both provided, was accentuated by the fact that you took the time to listen to our concerns and needs; whilst giving good advice in a professional friendly manner.

The end results in achieving the sale, was a great team effort from the Barfoot & Thompson staff; so many thanks for your efforts.

Roger & Alison

Thank you for all your help in selling our house. We were very happy our house was sold and were very grateful for your help throughout the last few months.

You listened and understood our needs. You made great suggestions in getting things done (or don't bother). You arranged the staging of the house without us needing to worry about the details. We were impressed with the Barfoot and Thompson network, with agents taking buyers from everywhere to view the house. Most impressively, you stopped an attempted burglary because you got our neighbours on board to watch out for the house while the house was vacant. You acted quickly and calmly. No one was hurt and the house was not damaged. Our house was sold at the price we would like to get. We are so pleased.

You were so easy to deal with... so professional and yet very personal. We'd definitely recommend your service to other people.

Annie and Bruce Denby

We thoroughly enjoyed working with Lindsay and Catherine on selling our home. They were organised and always happy to help and give us feedback after each open home. On top of selling our home they worked night and day to find us a new home and take us to viewings whenever it suited us, I highly recommend them as they were easy to get along with and great at their job.

Jeremy and Katrina

Thank you Catherine and Lindsay for your professionalism, friendship and encouragement in making this a seamless and enjoyable process. The result we could only have dreamed of, thank you, thank you, thank you.'

Julie and John O'Neill

'Thanks so much, Catherine and Lindsay. What a painless process for us at a really tough time. You were so down to earth, realistic and helpful. Next time I have a place to sell in Auckland you will be the first I call. '
