A breath of fresh air is a great thing to take in and an even better thing to be!
I have been in the real estate industry for many years and love being able to work in Franklin. It's an area that I am passionate about. I spent much of my youth in Waiuku before travelling extensively in my twenties. I currently live in the middle of Franklin almost, Patumahoe actually, central to Waiuku/Pukekohe and Karaka. This allows me to move in any direction in Franklin, quickly when required.
I became interested in real estate from a very young age, owning my first home at 19 and renovating my second at 26, after returning from three years in Europe. Understanding the process behind being a homeowner is integral to my ability to help my clients through this same process.
My goals in real estate are simple: to ensure my clients are happy, whether buying or selling, and helping them to achieve their goals. In my spare time, which is a rarity, as I always seem to be busy, I like to ride my motorcycle and knit, not at the same time! I have two daughters, one graduated from Victoria University and the other is about to start chiropractic studies. With the girls now independent (no more being a chauffeur), I've found that I have more time to pursue my real estate career. Many people find buying and selling homes a stressful and frustrating endeavour. I believe that I can help make this an enjoyable and what I would hope to be a successful process, with the strongest market leader in Auckland, Barfoot & Thompson.
I work with the utmost integrity and honesty and am committed to keeping my clients informed every step of the way, including after buying or selling. My personal touch results in many of my clients becoming friends for life. My testimonials account for this. My dedication to helping you achieve results, also includes keeping in touch after settlement day.
We first contacted Kim for an appraisal a couple of years back, but were unable to move due to work commitments. Two years later and after Kim kept in contact, we enlisted her services as our real estate salesperson. Kim's communication and updates after open homes were superb. We were informed every step of the way. Her help and guidance with presenting and marketing our home was invaluable. Our circumstances were by no means straightforward, but Kim achieved the best possible outcome. Kim's professionalism and attention to detail are second-to-none. We would highly recommend Kim as an salesperson.
Ger & Glenys - Waiuku March 2020
When we made the decision to sell we didn't hesitate to choose Kim to act for us. Why? The answer's really simple!
We knew that we were looking for someone with integrity, honesty, a network and reputation for adding value for their clients and Kim's name immediately came first to mind. We met Kim during our visit to an open home late in 2018. She kept in contact, was really genuine about helping us understand the market and also listened and understood what we wanted and were looking for to replace our existing home.
Kim recently sold our home and also helped us secure our purchase of a new home too .
Amazing service we were treated royally and genuinely.
As Kim consistently demonstrated all these qualities; we recommend her service and attention to anyone wanting a great experience. Selling or purchasing your home is an exacting and can be a stressful experience, however with Kim it is a journey to truly enjoy.
Thank you Kim.
Ann and Muzz Ellis
Kim is not only an amazing real estate agent but, an even more amazing person! She goes above and beyond, doing more than you would expect and always putting in the extra effort. I couldn't recommend Kim enough if you want your property sold and to make a lifetime friend as well! We appreciate everything you've done for us Kim and can't thank you enough. Keep up the amazing work, you're a star!
Dan & Jess - May 2019
A quick note to thank you for all your work in selling my property recently. It took a while as we had the Christmas break in the middle. Thank you for all your suggestions and guidance for marketing the property and changes to the listing through the period. It has been a long and emotional period getting the place sold given the personal reasons behind the sale. I consider you professional and after the time working together also a friend. You are a credit to your team and to Barfoot & Thompson and I would recommend you and the service you provide, happily to anybody!!
So again thank you for guiding the process and the communication and ideas throughout the listing and transaction.

Kim Fuhlendorff is an incredible realtor! What other realtor would help weed the garden, paint the fence, and find us a good cleaner and an excellent mover. Right, Kim did all this, and we sold the house within 10 days of its listing! She then helped us find the perfect downsize house to move to in Waiuku. As a native of the area, her knowledge of neighborhoods, people, and her friends made our decision to remain in Waiuku a sound one.
Jim - December 2018
Selling a home and buying another just weeks after having a stroke may seem like an impossible feat. But with the wonderful help and support from Kim, we were able to achieve it. From day one, Kim spent quality time with us, guiding us through the steps helping set up for the open homes, and even helping my daughters paint a fence. Luckily the sale was achieved very quickly. Finding a new home took a little longer, but once again Kim was able to negotiate with another agent to help buy the perfect house for us. We thoroughly recommend Kim as a realtor who covers every detail and puts her heart into her work at all times.
Helen & Jim December 2018
Kim. Your marketing plan was clear and offered us options, which we really appreciated. The fact that you are a local was also very important to us, Waiuku is a special town and you clearly understand the town and the locals. The fact that, in a softening market, you presented an offer within 10 days was astounding. You were very quick in arranging viewings and we were surprised at the interest you generated in such a short time. You have worked extremely well with us - and obviously the buyers also, so I'm sure that we are all happy.
I would - and will - recommend you to anybody looking to buy or sell a property.
Peter & Jane - November 2018
From the first day Kim and Emily gave us excellent service including full and prompt communication after all open homes and private viewings. They kept us fully informed of all developments throughout the entire sales and marketing program. Their value appraisable, along with the suggested marketing strategy to sell was professional and well presented, as was their approach to the overall running and management of the sales program.
One of their special ideas was to make a video of the house. The result was very funny and enjoyable for all of us and finally has contributed to success.
Kim and Emily had always good ideas to push potential buyers through the open homes. We often provided typical German "Schmankerls" (Finger Food) at open homes.
We would highly recommend Kim and Emily to anyone wanting to sell their property especially if it is unique as ours.
Both beautiful Lady's became friends of ours.
Holm & Heike, June 2018
In August 2017 the decision was made to sell our home. While doing research into which Agency to list our home with a name was given to me and the following Agent came highly recommended.
On a weekend in August this slight lady breezed into our lives and that was the beginning of our journey with Kim Fuhlendorff. Following discussions it was decided we would upgrade the kitchen appliances, refresh all joinery and replace paper where necessary then go to auction. It was a frantic month to get the property in order but through Kim's hands on help, cajoling, taking charge at times, and encouragement we were able to have the property ready a month later.
The house didn't sell at auction that month so the process of endless open homes and private viewings endured for what seemed like an endless time but not once did I hear Kim complain or give up.
Because of her positive upbeat attitude, her dedication and professionalism and continued hands on help to present the property at it's best we relisted with her again.
It eventually sold in May of this year to people who fell in love with it like we did in 2012.
This was the third property I have sold and with hand on heart I can honestly say that I have never had so much help, commitment, support and friendship from any other Agent that I have dealt with before.
I would happily recommended Kim to any person wishing to list their property.
So to you Kim I wish you all the success in your career. May you breeze into many a house and leave the same awesome approach that you gave to us.
Anne & Damian, July 2018
I first met Kim over a year ago when I was interested in purchasing a new property in Waiuku. This meeting occurred at Open Homes she was running. In this environment she was helpful and although she did follow up with phone calls after our visit, she was not pushy.
Some many months later, when we decided to sell our own house, I contacted Kim and was impressed with the fact that she remembered us even though we had met her independently on differing occasions. Consequently she became our agent and our house was sold within 6 weeks. After the sale became unconditional she continued contact with us dealing with matters that would not necessarily be within the scope of the average agent and we are grateful for that.
Cam & Anne Fleming, April 2018
Kim was fantastic to work with and was always available for help and advice, day or night. She worked tirelessly to make sure we got the best result with our house sale and securing our dream section. Thanks Kim!
Stuart & Carrie Whyte February 2018
We would like to thank Kim for helping us sell our home in Waiuku. Kim had a very strong knowledge of the area and offered us good advice on how best to present and market our home which we took on-board. However most of all it was her enthusiasm, strong organisational skills and a belief that that our home was very saleable which impressed us the most. We would happily re-commend Kim to other people who are considering selling their home.
Kevin and Raewyn Daly October 2017
I had an incredibly tough decision opting to sell my house through an agent. Coming from a working background in sales and recruitment, I am typically quite suspicious of "sales-people"- I needed to be sure that my property was cared for in the best manner possible by someone with honest and integral intentions that aligned with my own personal values. Kim went above and beyond to ensure that my property was well tendered to under her care. Knowing the process was a highly emotional one, she kept in regular contact offering sound advice, always delivered to exceed my expectations, and even stepped away giving me the space to breathe and move through the process at my own pace whilst continually supporting me - both physically in the staging and appearance of my house, and emotionally. Kim, I can't thank you enough for being personable, approachable, contactable and an emotional rock throughout this process. Thank you for your hard work.
Kim has been amazing to deal with during the selling of our beloved first home and helping us to buy our new family home. Kim worked tirelessly to help to get our house sold and definitely went above and beyond the call of duty! She is really easy to deal with, very professional, knowledgeable and has been fantastic with our young kids including the furry ones. And we have been fortunate enough to make a new family friend during the process thanks for all your hard work Kim we really appreciate it
Terry & Kylie July 2017
Our search for a new home spanned an 18 month period, in that time we encountered dozens of real estate agents, good and not so good. We can honestly say that Kim shone above all others and left the most lasting impression.
Dealing with Kim was an extremely relaxed and pleasant experience, over a six month period we developed a trusting relationship, to the extent that we can now call Kim a friend. Whether selling or buying Kim is a great person to have on your team.
Paul & Margaret Waiuku June 2017
Roses are Red, Violets are Blue
If you need a real estate agent Kim is for you
She is friendly, helpful and very kind
A more honest person you could never find.
Her feedback was great
We never had to wait
To wonder and think what it was all about
And get so frustrated you would feel you had to shout
She will go above and beyond her duty in helping you
Never minds if you need to call her one time or two
So, give her a call, if you want to sell
Before you know it she will be ringing your bell.
I know you will be happy with her service too
Gives much, much more than you think you are due
A friend in the making for evermore
A genuine lady down to the core.
Bill and Colleen March 2017
We met Kim at one of her 'Open Homes' and indicated that we would probably be selling our property later in the year. Kim subsequently touched base with us regarding the local property market, on a few occasions, through newsletters and emails.
Having decided to build and, because we'd appreciated her keeping us updated on the property market locally, we asked her to appraise our property and give us marketing suggestions to help us achieve the best return on our main asset.
We appreciated her honest evaluation and the advice and assistance she gave with regards marketing our property, going above and beyond what is the norm and which resulted in a breathtakingly speedy sale.
Christine and Ian February 2017
Kims service has been impeccable for last 12 months on handling 2 property sales for me . My last property she sold she solely handled the marketing as I did not live where the property was located. I was very happy to leave it in her capable professional hands, she always kept me informed on progress. I was extremely happy with the 3 week end result. Thank you Kim, pleasure doing business with you as always and look forward to the next venture.
Leonie Waiuku October 2016
Thank you for the books that you have provided our school with. On behalf of Waiuku Primary School, we are very thankful. The stories are very interesting and our kids love them.
Waiuku Primary School Students October 2016
We wish to thank you very much for your friendly and personable assistance in selling our home. You did everything you could to follow up with viewers and get those bidders along to our auction. Since then you have gone above and beyond to help us find our next place, including sending us options you wouldn't even benefit from. You are truly a special lady and we appreciate all that you have done for us.
Chrystal & Donald Pukekohe June 2016
Thanks so very much for all your help if we need phone numbers for quotes at any stage for renovating we shall contact you :-) you are awesome Kim a great agent! Thanks to you and your mum xx :-) We shall be sending photos soon of our hard work.
Dan & Amy (First Home) Papakura April 2016
I just wanted to touch base and say a huge thank you for all the hard work you and Kim put into the sale. It feels so good to know it's done and dusted and I don't have to think about the house any longer I will be looking at purchasing again in April so hopefully we will be dealing with each other again in the not so distant future.
Hannah March 2016
"Thank you so much for all your help with Mum's move, we really appreciated you going "above and beyond" to help us with such a huge task and stressful time."
The Lundo-Nielsens, January 2016
"Kim & Pam provided exceptional service. Their marketing of my property was well thought out but also done quickly and professionally. Kim ran my open homes, highly organised before the open home by advertising open home signs, flyers drops and provided great feed back. She provided wonderful support and was there every step of the way. I have thoroughly enjoyed my relationship with Pam and Kim and I would not hesitate to sell again with them."
Leonie, Waiuku, August 2015
"Pamela Cox worked very hard to get us a buyer at the price we were expecting and she persevered for nearly 12 months to get the result that we wanted. If you want an agent that will go that extra mile she is
the one to have on your side."
David & Trish, Pahurehure, May 2015
"My partner and I had been looking to purchase a property for 5 months before we came across Pamela Cox and Kim Fuhlendorff selling a property in Papakura. Unfortunately even after much effort on Pamela's part, we missed out on that particular property . Pamela listened to what we wanted and informed us as soon as a suitable property came onto the market. She was very patient, approachable and knowledgeable and went out of her way to get information about the properties on our behalf. Within 2 weeks of meeting Pamela, she had found a property for us.
We just want to add that Pamela was the only real estate agent we came across that made any considerable effort to help us with our house hunting. We would recommend her to any prospective vendors and purchasers."
Shane & Vanessa, Pahurehure, April 2015
"Pam has been absolutely amazing with the sale of our property, as she was 6.5 years ago when we purchased it off her. Pam has kept us up to date with all progress & has been incredibly helpful to us throughout the whole process. We are more than happy & will be sure to deal with Pam in the future & we would most certainly recommend her as an agent to any family or friends.. "VERY HAPPY"."
Shane & Fleur, Pahurehure, March 2015
"The quality of the marketing Pam produced was fantastic and produced outstanding results in terms of parties viewing the property!"
Paul & Sheryl, Conifer Grove, February 2015
"Pamela was very professional and was always happy to meet up with us and keep us informed through out the whole process. extremely mindful of our situation with young kids and a dog and it always felt like our needs were put first. Loved the fact that there was always a note left behind after Pamela s visits and open homes which was always followed up by a call the very same day. All this helped keep up confident and up to date with what was happening and that it was only a matter of time before we would sell. Thank you Pamela for all yours and Kim's hard work."
Clynton & Nicola, Keri Vista, January 2015
"We found Pamela to be very professional and very understanding to our needs. She was up front and was always available. We would definitely use her again and will recommend her to others.
Pamela spoke very highly of the company she worked for. She loves her job and it reflects on the way she works. She is an asset to your company"
Colin & Dianne, Opaheke, December 2014
"A big thank you once again for your services, you truly are a great real estate person. We appreciate your help and guidance, not just now but over the years. I know your always just a phone call away"
Carolyn & Steve, Pahurehure, November 2014
"We just wanted to say a huge thank you.
We know we weren't the easiest bunch to deal with having a little one, But thank you for always considering our daughter when arranging any viewing and such, it made what could have been very stressful, a pleasant experience. Please thank Kim for us too"
Dan & Grace, Pahurehure, November 2014
"Pamela Cox is a very friendly upfront agent always available and has good advice. Achieves results very quickly & always has good advice on things that we havn't thought of. Would not hesitate to recommend her to other people and she is the only agent we ring when we need to sell or buy again."
Erik & Joy, Papakura, November 2014
"Thank you very much for your kindness and compassion shown to mum over the sale of her property, it has been a pleasure to deal with you."
Rose & her family, Papakura, November 2014
"Thank you very much for your amazing help over the last few months. I have really appreciated your speed and assistance"
Russ, Papakura, October 2014
"We found Pamela Cox to be very trustworthy, always available and knowledgeable about the local property market."
Derek & Maxine, Conifer Grove, September 2014
"Thank you Pam for a job very well done in selling our home, and getting us into a very welcome smaller home for our age.Thank you Kim also for your attention. It has been a very good experience all round for both my self & Gerarda."
Lionel & Gerarda, Manurewa, September 2014.
"Pamela was very professional and reliable. She was always there when we needed her. She was also helpful when we were trying to find our new house even though it was out of her area. No wonder she has been a popular agent."
Kazuki and Yukiko Tsukihara, Drury, August 2014
"My first phone conversation with Pamela convinced me to list with her alone rather than the general listing I was inquiring about. She was confident, firm and a straight shooter. The sale was quick and effortless and I was more than happy with the price achieved. Pamela restored my faith in real estate agents after a past experience."
Tanya, Papakura, June 2014
"I was so amazed as to the level of support Pam provided. I am writing to commend Pam for her care and support beyond the call of duty. Not only was she a highly professional salesperson, but that has also extended to after sales service so to speak. I cannot speak highly enough of the service and care Pam has provided during and after the purchase of my property and I would highly recommend her to anyone I know who is selling or buying a property. Her efficiency and professionalism has been outstanding!!"
Kristen, Drury, May 2014
"I found Pam to be well focused on her job, always respectful, and helpful. Pam understood the emotions going through the sellers mind and did her best to relieve any fears. I found Pam and her daughter Kim very pleasant to deal with,I now look upon them as my friends and have already spoken well of them to people who have asked about my sale. Thank you. Pam and Kim for making that part of my journey through life, a pleasant one."
Edith, Pahurehure, May 2014
