Welcome to Barfoot & Thompson
How we help landlords manage their rental property
As an investor, you want to know your rental property is in safe hands. That's where Barfoot & Thompson come in.
Stress free property management
With Barfoot & Thompson, not only do you have the strength of NZ's largest and most trusted real estate company behind you, but you have peace of mind that property management experts are looking after your investment.
So instead of dealing with the day-to-day issues you can sit back and relax, confident that your property is in safe hands.
We manage 14,000+ rental properties
Barfoot & Thompson is New Zealand's leading real estate company and New Zealand's largest privately owned real estate company - still run by the Barfoot and Thompson families after 90 years.
We manage over 14,000 rental properties and with dedicated property managers in over 60 branches and one of Auckland's largest rental portfolios, we have the experience and scale to help you.
We resolve disputes
Because property management is our area of expertise, and as members of the Real Estate Institute we understand the legislative ins and outs so can deal with any issues that arise quickly and effectively. When required, our property managers represent our landlords at mediations and tenancy tribunal hearings.
You can trust that your money is in good hands
Handling of all rental funds is managed through our head office accounting department. And, unlike many other property management companies, all money collected on your behalf is held in an audited trust account - so you know where it is at any time.
Barfoot & Thompson Ltd is also licensed under the Real Estate Agents Act 2008.
We have the local knowledge
Because our property managers are based in Barfoot & Thompson branches across Auckland and Northland, they understand their local rental market, have access to a wide portfolio of potential tenants, and can keep an eye on your property easily.
Every branch has support staff that can assist you should your property manager be out of the office.
Regular communication, clear information
We report back to you on a regular basis the findings of our inspections, send statements at the end of each month, and keep you informed of market conditions, rent reviews and other relevant information.
The best technology in the business
Barfoot & Thompson has invested in state-of-the-art property management systems - which contain the details of all rental properties we manage. By linking all quotes, repairs, maintenance, photos and rent payments to each rental account, all information related to a property is at our fingertips - invaluable for regular reporting and should a dispute occur.
