Sound good? It is, but don’t take my word for it. Below are some testimonials from clients who have trusted us with their North Shore homes.

I just want to say a great big thank you to André and team for marketing and selling my property. Being a plaster house with some moisture issues, it was always going to be a difficult sell however André was keen to accept the challenge. I was thrilled to receive an offer I was happy with after only one week on the market. Also impressive was André’s communication and selling process. Excellent communication when required and I was happy to leave it to André and his team who just did everything and made difficult seem easy. Great speed in preparing professional marketing collateral – if anyone is thinking of selling their house I completely recommend André! Thanks André for the job done.

Thanks so much André and team for helping us to sell our house in the newly difficult market. We are very happy with the price and thrilled that the timing worked out perfectly for us to move into our brand-new house being completed in Silverdale. Thanks again, André and we will be happy to recommend your services to anyone planning to sell their house in the future.

Dear Andre,

My wife and I would like to thank you for all your efforts and commitment in selling our home. It has been a real pleasure to deal with you.

Your professional approach and dedication to a high level of customer service has made this a non-stressful experience, very smooth and enjoyable. We are very happy with the outcome and highly appreciative of your services. Many thanks, Andre.

Milan & Olivera, Glenfield

Andre is not only a superb and meticulously efficient real estate professional but also a trustworthy person as a friend.  We depended entirely on him when we sold our house.  We are very happy to be associated with him. 

Tetsuo & Masako, Glenfield

Hi Andre,

I write to express our sincere thanks for your efforts and work in selling our property.  Not having sold or purchased for some 35 years, it was indeed a very daunting and stressful task, however, your extreme professionalism and kindness simply made all that stress disappear and we found the whole process amazing.  The fact that you took a lot of time to research and explain every facet of the process and guide us through it with a gentle manner and regular follow-ups was very impressive.  We were taken by the fact that in our first meeting you were very keen to find out exactly what our expectations of you were and what we wanted of you.  That is the first time anyone has asked us that and showed you were genuinely interested in making sure you could help us and fulfill our expectations.  As the auction approached, we were on edge but your calm demeanor the night before and reassurances when we set the reserve allowed us to relax and actually enjoy the auction process.  We think your service and follow-up to be of the very highest order and worthy of great praise.  It has been an absolute pleasure to work with you and we are very happy to tell everyone we meet that Barfoot & Thompson and Andre Volkov, in particular should always be the first choice when selling or purchasing on the Shore.  With the kindest of regards, Your friends 

Margaret & Godfrey Reid

Thank you very much, when my house was listed, sales marketing, advertising, eventually sold at a more expected price, your service is very good, considerate, approachable, dedicated, doing things quickly.  I’d be glad to get your help again, thank you.

Gui Ru Liu, Birkdale

We interviewed several agents for the sale of our house and decided to go with Andre and his team because we felt we would get a better result.  Unlike other agents, there were no false promises. He educated us from the beginning on market trends, open homes trends and how to best engage the best buyers that come in the first few weeks of open homes – everything turned out to be true and worked well for us! Communication with Andre was great. He was always available to answer our questions (we did ask him a lot), giving us good advice that proved to be the right thing to do as the future unfolded. We closed on time and are really happy with the sale result. We would definitely work with him again and will refer him to friends and family.  

Asif & Madeeha

We have known Andre for a long time. He has earned our trust as a highly motivated professional since his last job related to online advertising. We contacted Andre numerous times over the years to get his advice on the market conditions and maximising the sale price for both our place and our investment property. We were always impressed with his knowledge and his ideas. When it came to selling our investment property outside of Andre’s area he has found us a local agent specialising in the neighbourhood and we are very happy with the service and the achieved sale price. We would certainly recommend Andre and Barfoot & Thompson to anyone considering selling. 

Rodney & Lucille

After deciding rather quickly to sell my rental property in Birkenhead, I approached André Volkov at Barfoot & Thompson. With four weeks to go before Christmas, he had my property listed, complete with photos and brochures. After four weekends of open homes, the sale was unconditional before Christmas. I found André to be very professional and knew his way round some difficult issues. He kept me well informed of progress from the open homes and listings. My property was tenanted throughout, and he treated my tenants with consideration and respect. They also spoke very highly of him with his attitude towards them. I would highly recommend André to anyone wishing to sell a property in the future.

Joan, Birkenhead

We bought our home from Andre, we had been to a few of his open homes before and they were always well organized, creating a warm welcoming atmosphere.

Having arrived at the last minute, he made us feel welcomed and did not rush us through the property. We appreciated his honesty and found him knowledgeable about the current market.  Andre is trust worthy and went above and beyond to provide us with the required information.  We are very satisfied with the purchase process and will recommend his services without hesitation.  

Richard & Intan, Glenfield

Recently, on deciding to move north to be closer to family members we decided to use Andre to market our home. We felt certain that we knew him as he had unobtrusively kept in touch with us through his newsletters.  

Being a retired senior person, putting our house on the market after being here for so long was no mean feat for us so we put our trust in Andre. We certainly were not disappointed. His grooming, time keeping and manner were impeccable throughout. An impressive and professional marketing plan was soon put together and his service to us throughout the process was beyond reproach.   Making himself available at any time throughout the process for help and advice was very supportive for us.  

Our home sold quickly during a cooling market period for a good price thanks to Andre’s effort with the support of his team at Barfoot and Thompson in Glenfield. Andre is very knowledgeable and passionate about his job. He is amiable, doesn’t give false hopes and will work tirelessly for his client. For those wanting a true professional to sell their home, Andre is your man.  

Malcolm & Jill Wallace, Glenfield

Andre assisted finding a home within the Glenfield area during a time in which the market was particularly active. 

We were pleased that Andrei was able to listen, discern our needs and recommend a property that was suitable. 

During the subsequent auction and purchase process he was more than helpful, going further than what was required, ensuring a successful outcome for all.

I would not hesitate to use (again) or recommend Andrei service for buying or selling a home. 

Darcy Lange, Glenfield

After many years of enjoying our place as a very happy home, it was our time to sell and move on. Our grown-up children have moved on with family in new locations. Thanks André and your team for your guidance and support through the sale process and the achieved outcome. We trust that the family moving in will enjoy the character of the property and have many happy moments in their new home. 

Tom & Pat Beach Haven

If you are thinking of selling your house we recommend you give Andre Volkov a call. His professional attitude and focus on the task at hand, together with his attention to detail, recently achieved a successful sale for us in a very short time. He communicated with us throughout and stuck to the plan, his mantra “keep calm and carry on” maintained a stress-free experience from go to whoa. Thank you Andre
Kevin & Anne

I was referred to Andre Volkov by my niece, who had just sold her house via a different Barfoot agency.  I found him to be very easy to communicate with –  he was clear, direct and honest.  He kept me informed at every stage of the process.  With his colleague Harry, they achieved a great result for me very rapidly after the house was marketed.  I would have no hesitation in referring this team to any of my friends who are thinking about selling.  This Barfoot & Thompson team at Glenfield is excellent at what it does!!

Carolyn

After interviewing several Real Estate agents, we chose Andre Volkov because of his integrity and commitment. He is highly motivated and inspires confidence with his quiet, reassuring manner. 

He has a deep knowledge of the Real Estate business and a thorough knowledge of the area he is working in.  He handled the whole process of selling our home with dedication and confidence, keeping us fully informed every step along the way. We never doubted his ability to do his best for us. 

The results Andre achieved exceeded our expectations by far.  Andre is a brilliant Real Estate agent with superb skills and abilities. He is totally trustworthy and sincere. We are thrilled with the results he achieved for us. We would highly recommend him to anyone planning to sell. He is an exceptional man in so many ways. Thank you, Andre.   

Janice Jacomb, Glenfield

Andre has been simply brilliant through the sales process.  Given I was on my own for the first time in selling a house, Andre was patient and understanding, listened to my concerns, fully explained all the options and the processes to me and kept me informed on a regular basis.  Nothing was too much trouble for him and I would recommend Andre to anyone who is looking to sell their home. 

Lisa Byrne, Glenfield

We are very happy with the price and thrilled that the timing worked out perfectly for us to move into our brand-new house being completed in Silverdale. Thanks again, André and we will be happy to recommend your services to anyone planning to sell their house in the future.

Rod & Kath, Glenfield

We are glad that we chose André to sell our property. He is very sincere and trustworthy. André guided us professionally from the start and he knows the market very well. Working with André made the whole process very simple as he gave us very good advised. André kept us well informed after every open home and prepared progress report each time. The auction went very well and we were able to achieve what we wanted. Thank you André and the whole Barfoot & Thompson team, agents and auctioneers who rallied behind us.

Al & Editha Valladolid, Glenfield

When it came to selling our first house, I’m so glad we chose Andre & team to make the sale happen. Having already brought a new house we needed a quick sale at a great price and this is exactly what happened! Everything went according to plan and nothing was too much trouble for Andre. Thanks to the excellent marketing campaign Andre prepared and the efforts of the B&T network, we had an offer within 2 days of the house being on the market and unconditional within 2 weeks. Our family is now excited to move on with the next phase in our lives. If you are needing any help – advice or guidance with real estate – look no further than Andre Volkov!

Amy & Dan, Glenfield

I interviewed a number of agents when looking for the right person to help me with the sale of a family member’s home.  Andre stood out to me from the moment I spoke to him as someone who would work hard and focus on the job at hand to get a quick sale at a good price.  I was not disappointed!  I would definitely recommend him if you are looking for an experienced agent with good judgement, who will work hard to achieve a good result.
