I’m a professional salesperson helping people achieve their property goals. With proven systems and an outstanding record of premium results and delighted clients and customers. No shortcuts – just great service and high standards.
Thank-you so much for selling my mother’s property for us. It was great to have had you as our agent.
Cilla & Gary Hanson
We found Robert Davies very professional in all aspects of selling property. Top marks in communication, plus willing to go the extra mile. Great to deal with. Thanks!
Brian & Sally Luff
The service received from Robert Davies and the team was of a very high calibre.
Robert worked very hard indeed to get us a better price than we could have expected for our property, as well as being thoroughly pleasant to work with. Both Robert Davies and the auctioneer could not have been more helpful and informative. This will be our last move, but we would most certainly use Barfoot and Thompson again if we were going to move.

My wife and I have had some serious real estate involvement over the last 50 years as we have moved house 15 times and also had some involvement in commercial property. On a rating system of one to ten we unfortunately would have to rate most agents in the 7 or lower category. However, Robert Davies, we would happily rate in the 9 to 10 category.
We found Robert to have a really pleasant personality, and to be totally professional in his approach. He was always helpful and prepared to do that bit extra. Also, he did exactly what he said he would do in regard to marketing the property, which seems a bit unusual these days. We would both thoroughly recommend him to others and have already done so. All the best Robert and thank you again for getting us top price for the unit.

After great thought my wife and I decided to put the family home of 20 years on the market in mid Nov. Probably the worst time of year with the busy Christmas period starting. We approached Robert with the task to sell our home. After an appraisal and discussion Robert suggested auction, 3 weeks of open homes and full page ads along with the internet. Weekly updates from Robert kept us constantly up to date with interested parties and numbers through open homes. Robert and his team did a truly professional job throughout the whole process and that in turn kept us relaxed. We would highly recommend Robert Davies to sell your home and should the opportunity arise to deal with Robert again we would not hesitate to contact him again. Thanks Robert for making the start of our transition so easy.
Tony & Tracey Cotton
I wanted to write and thank you personally Robert for your professional approach to listing and selling our property. From start to finish we felt you managed the process in a highly professional way and with integrity. You communicated well with us and we always felt informed, and most importantly that you were working for us – as the vendors. Ultimately this resulted in a successful sale. Thank you for being sensitive also, to our situation given my mother had recently passed away and we were coming to terms with that. I would definitely recommend you to others (in fact I already have), who may be considering selling their home.
“We enjoyed our association with Robert Davies who showed a proper professionalism in approaching the task with enthusiasm and competence.”
Graeme & Mairi Ferguson
“Robert's assessment of our home's value was "spot-on" and the auctioneer, David was amazing. After speaking to other estate agencies, we were satisfied that Robert was the outstanding agent for us. From his first visit we recognised honesty, integrity, enthusiasm, along with his "I'm employed by YOU to get YOU the best price possible" statement - and he did! We found Robert to be most honest and informative throughout the weeks leading up to the auction, making us feel confident in his capable hands. We were amazed at his knowledge of reading the market, including the way the auction would pan out. He was so right! We were blown away! THANKYOU Robert, doesn't say enough.
Barfoot & Thompson have an extremely valuable agent in Robert Davies. Of course, you already know that! Thankyou B & T.
Rosemary & Graham Mills
“Thank you so much Robert for the wonderful result you achieved for us at the Auction last week. We still get a thrill thinking back to the auction and the sound of the auctioneer calling an ever-increasing price; we thought it only happened on TV and "Our First Home". It has been a pleasure to do business with you.
The reason we contacted Robert Davies to market and sell our property was that he had kept in touch with us over the five years since his listing of our property when we originally purchased it. His efforts in keeping his profile alive in the area was noted by us with the monthly mail drops of notepads, chocolates and information leaflets of property sales in the area.
Robert put a great deal of effort into preparing our property for auction. As well as encouraging other Barfoot & Thompson agents to view and promote our property he also showed a large number of prospective buyers through. Most importantly though he explained the Auction process to us and his guidance in setting a realistic reserve was most helpful and although we realized the Auckland housing market was skyrocketing, we never dreamed our auction price would reach the figure achieved on the day.
We are very thankful to Robert, David (Auctioneer) and all at Barfoot & Thompson for their expertise and hard work in making our sale so successful.
We have perceived Robert Davies to be an honest, professional, friendly, immaculately presented, extremely knowledgeable and confident sales person and have no hesitation in recommending him to future home owners requiring a very successful sales result.”
Irene & Les Wells
“Robert was a relaxed person to deal with, who went through the sales process very well explaining things without going over your head. His follow up through the whole experience was excellent. Keep doing what he already does well.”
Shirley & Roger Bauerle
“Robert Davies was very professional when he sold our elderly parents house. He took the time to explain to them the process and was continually in contact with them. They really enjoy the process of selling their house they had been in for 46 years. Robert has restored my faith in Real Estate Agents and the family was very happy with the auction outcome. I would recommend Robert and would use his services again.”
“We will definitely use Robert Davies in future as he is very professional and we were very impressed with him. All the information supplied by him was a great help. He has a very wide knowledge about properties. It’s very easy to contact him whenever we required any information. We were comfortable dealing with him. We are planning to buy a house soon and we will definitely contact him with full confidence.”
Afroz & Nisha Khan
“I could not get a more exceptional, experienced and down to earth person such as Robert. If I had another property to sell I would not hesitate to work with him again. I will make sure friends know all about him and I recommended Robert to my girlfriend for when she wants to sell. They met at the auction. He gave me a price before he started of $860,000 and I exceeded that, much to my delight.”
“Robert and the team from Barfoot & Thompson did a very professional and successful job of marketing and selling our dwelling through the auction process. From our first meeting Robert takes on board and analyses not only the property he has been asked to evaluate and market but also the client and their expectations which enables him to put the client at ease and set a calming atmosphere in what can be a stressful situation to a lot of people.
Robert has a very sound background knowledge of the marketing process and current market trends. With this and the gathered information on the property and along with the team from Barfoot & Thompson sets and displays a market program which portrays the property to its full potential. Within this he keeps in regular contact with the client along with keeping them fully informed of what is to be expected and provides regular analytical data updates on the progress right up to and past the auction date. This brought about a very successful result which exceeded our expectations and we would not hesitate in recommending Robert and the team from Barfoot & Thompson in marketing a property.
Rainey & Jean Brown
“We were very impressed with Robert's knowledge of the local market. He did a great job marketing our property - we had great numbers through our open homes. We appreciated him keeping us informed along the way, and guiding us through the process. Thank you for the excellent job you did of selling our property.”
Matt & Joanna Morrison
“I have previously sold with Robert and he lived up to my expectations once again, I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone considering selling their property.”
“My wife and I were fortunate in obtaining the services of Robert. His professionalism, bearing and always immaculate turnout was certainly confidence building. Under his competent planning everything just progressed smoothly; open homes, feedback etc. His appraisal and probable sale price was spot on. I personally have never been a fan of “salespeople” but working with Robert has been a real pleasure and my wife and I have no hesitation in recommending both Barfoot & Thompson and Robert on any opportunity that may arise.”
Frank & Jeanette Edwards
“We found Robert to be open & honest, trustworthy, professional, friendly, hardworking and extremely experienced on how to market a property successfully. He advised us on how to add value to our house without going overboard or into debt to do so. We really appreciated his advice as we weren’t sure how much we needed to do to get our house looking the best it could. He was prompt in supplying us with a calendar of events and deadlines were met on all occasions. His ability to attract the right buyers was obvious on Auction Day with standing room only in our backyard.
He made the whole process easy for us, we just had to follow his advice and leave it to him to handle everything. His knowledge of the market is superb and his advice to us regarding the reserve price was spot on. We were ecstatic with the sale price and would recommend Robert to anyone we know who is thinking of selling and would certainly use him again if we need to in the future.
I have to say that when we got his newsletters over the previous year or so, we did glance at the recommendations but to be honest I was a bit skeptical as they appeared too gushing and over the top and looking at what I’ve just written it looks the same, but it’s all true, so there you go.”
Carol & Wayne Carson
“We found Robert Davies to be very professional in his job, He made the whole process flow smoothly and without any stress. Pat and I would have no hesitation in recommending Robert to friends and family, Thanks Robert.”
Sue & Pat Gubb
“My adviser and I chose Robert from a group that made presentations to us. As we worked with him we became even more certain that we had made the correct choice. The result of the auction justified our faith in him. He did an outstanding job for me. At our first meeting Robert told us that his main task was to create competition between three or more buyers by selling them the good features of my home. He did this brilliantly, hence the superb result. In the short time we have been together I now regard Robert as a personal friend.”
“Robert found this property for us from our brief 12 years ago. Since then he has continued to maintain contact periodically via newsletter and personal phone calls, keeping us informed of the market situation.
We have appreciated this personal touch. We have found Robert to be honest and open regarding market
options. Robert also went the "extra mile" helping us out by organising a carpet cleaner for us when we were out of town. We believe his contacts and those of the Barfoot team helped to achieve an exceptional result at our recent Auction. Robert has guided us through the auction process and made the whole process relatively easy.”
Brian & Wendy Gilmore
“We engaged Robert to assist with the sale of a relative’s property. We live overseas and have limited understanding of the market. Robert was exceptional in his approach to the entire process. He was diligent and most knowledgeable. The price achieved was just what Robert had advised.
We would recommend Robert as your trusted Real Estate Agent.”
“Robert's comment "It’s a good property and I will be happy to sell it" met our expectations of a real sales person. Prior to approaching him, I was approached by other agencies as well inquiring whether I am interested in buying another property or selling. I asked them to appraise my property and they came with fancy proposals of photos/ads etc. but highlighting a long list of negatives about the property. So I did not bother communicating with them any further. Selling properties is quite challenging but an experienced and intelligent sales agent will not hesitate to take on the challenge. Robert possesses all the necessary qualities that a Real Estate Agent should have. I have no hesitation in recommending him to any would be vendors.”
“Robert made the entire process of selling our rental property very easy. The tenants commented often of what a "lovely guy" he was and how polite and considerate he was towards them. This in turn made the tenants very cooperative in terms of open homes and visits from buyers. I felt complete trust in Robert's ability and professionalism to do a good job for us - which he certainly did. We are very happy both with the process and the price that was achieved, and would definitely use him again in the future.”
Lizzie & Alo Foliaki
“Robert has an exceptional work ethic. He brings with him the presence of calm that is so much needed when buying or selling a property. I chose Robert to sell our property as I have seen him driving around Papatoetoe for years and he always waves Hi. I have had constant market update flyers (with chocolates) to keep me informed of what the local market is doing. Robert was extremely thorough in explaining all the procedures of selling our property to me, often explaining them a few times until I understood it. I have learned an awful lot about real estate from talking with Robert and I will be certainly asking for his advice when purchasing my next property. Robert Davies is the epitome of professionalism. Thank you so much Robert for all the advice.”
Angela & Roger Beddoes
“Robert Davies was recommended to us to sell our property. Because of the recommendation we expected a high standard in the sales and marketing of our property. Robert performed to that high standard and achieved a sales result beyond what we expected.”
“We engaged with Robert Davies as we had seen him in action at a recent auction near our property. He had managed to drum up a large number of interested parties for that property and we felt we had a very unique property and it would require someone who knew the market who understood the uniqueness of our property and would understand that we wanted ours to be sold to a purchaser who would love it as much as us. He certainly achieved all that - His communication is exceptional, his drive for success for you the vendor is to be commended. I felt totally comfortable with Robert - He understands the market and the buyers out there and I believe he managed everything very well. We were actually overseas whilst the majority of the marketing was done but he still kept us informed via text as to the progress and was very open & honest with the feedback. I would most certainly recommend him to anyone wishing to sell property.”
“We found Robert very easy to talk to, he answered all our concerns and gave us guidance and recommendations. He was positive and focused and his portfolio of current properties was well managed giving all equal opportunity. I found Robert to be trustworthy and honest and working with a good team.”
“Robert, I would personally like to thank you for the outstanding result you achieved with the sale of 26 Kimpton Road yesterday. The very hard work and organisation that you put into achieving this were obvious. Can you also please convey my thanks to David Johnstone, the auctioneer, for his total professionalism.”
“Thank you Terry for introducing us to Robert. It was a good match. Robert was very professional and knows his job well. He identified the positive points of the property and used these features to market the house effectively. Robert was an excellent communicator contacting us by phone, email, letter and hand delivering some documents. He was thorough in his informing/reporting to us but not intrusive. Robert also comes across as a nice person, with integrity, so very pleasant to deal with.”
“I have dealt with Robert Davies of Barfoot and Thompson, Papatoetoe for both property purchases and sales. I unreservedly recommend him as a trustworthy, friendly, conscientious and courteous agent. I would have no hesitation in entrusting properties to him again. His attention to detail, communications and availability were all excellent and I believe he provides a great model for the industry.”
“Robert is a very knowledgeable real estate agent, but more importantly is a very honest and trustworthy individual. We spoke with many real estate agents before choosing Robert. He was the most honest and realistic when it came to possible sale prices, which was very important to us, and kept us grounded throughout the sales process. Under promise and over deliver, a fantastic mantra to work by! His practical and pragmatic approach when preparing the property for sale and organising the marketing events put our minds at ease as far as selling our property was concerned. His regular updates and communications kept us well informed throughout the process. A very charismatic person with a lot of integrity, who wasn’t afraid to speak the truth when he needed to. A pleasure to deal with and we would definitely recommend Robert Davies in a heartbeat.”
“Robert made a stressful process fairly easy by guiding me through every step of the way. He was very friendly, genuine and helpful.”
“I wouldn’t use anyone else, we were very satisfied.”
“Robert gave us time to understand. He gave us great advice, was upfront and honest, but at the same time was also realistic with us. He would listen and was willing to take on board our suggestions. We found him to be the complete opposite of what we thought real estate agents were. He was patient, helpful, hardworking and professional. We always felt Robert was working for us – he took selling our home as personally as we did. We would recommend Robert to anyone.”
Nick & Therese Manning
“Robert, thank you once again for your hard work. I appreciate it a lot and I like the fact that you sold my house like it was your own. You understood all I was going through and made lots of calls before the auction because you knew how anxious I was. You also managed the whole process professionally and kept the process calm and civil with both the tenants and the neighbours. The outcome of the auction was a lot more than I expected, which has put an even bigger smile on my face! I am a very happy customer and would recommend you to anyone.”
“I observed and checked out most of the Local Agents and the way they worked for considerable time, before deciding on Robert Davies to sell my property. It is fair to say my opinion of Real Estate Agents has never been high. Robert has changed that. He worked solely for me rather than any potential buyer, whilst I was very nervous about going to auction, his attention to detail in every aspect was flawless. I would trust Robert in any property dealings I may have in the future.”
“I thought he did well and was honest and upfront. He has been great to work with.”
“Thank you is an inadequate word at any time but it has to do. I’ve been just so grateful for your advice and calm ‘drilling down’ of my various worries. Please accept my sincere gratitude for the effort, time and outcome in selling my little house. And special thanks for making it easy for me.”
“Not having any recent experience or contact with a Real Estate Agent, dealing with Robert was a revelation and a pleasure. We found his professionalism and knowledge, courtesy and friendliness, exceptional. Faultless presentation and assistance – unable to think of any improvement. Very happy!”
“Robert has been fantastic to deal with throughout the selling process of our family home. We are so pleased with the results and Robert made the process exceptionally smooth and easy.”
“I found Robert to be a courteous, knowledgeable man who provided good advice and excellent support. Not a pushy agent at all and very reliable.”
“I wish to thank Robert for his integrity and professionalism in selling our elderly Uncle’s home. I would have no hesitation in recommending Robert to anyone wishing to buy or sell property – a good Kiwi bloke.”
“I am impressed with the level of service, support and enthusiasm provided by Robert.”
"Robert’s a good guy, looks the part and delivers. There’s not too many like that around. Of course, he’s tall, well dressed and keeps his shoes clean, they all do, but Robert’s got something inside the suit as well. He’s a professional, a true one, honest and straightforward and knows his business well. I’d recommend him unreservedly. Thanks, Robert, for doing such a great job selling mum and dad’s place. You’re the best real estate agent I’ve come across."
"Recently Robert acted for me as my agent in the sale of my late mother’s home. Robert proved to be well organized, focused, confident and knowledgeable with the whole process that we went through. Robert is probably the most reliable professional I have dealt with in years. His thoroughness and pleasant manner made the situation easy. I am glad for the opportunity to recommend Robert as a Real Estate Agent. I look forward to dealings with Robert in the future."
