Welcome visitor,

If you are reading my profile, you probably don’t know me from a bar of soap. You have little reason to trust me at this stage, thinking that all real estate agents just want a quick sale and to collect a commission cheque.

Hi, I'm Mark, Live in Te Atatu Peninsula. Give me the chance to show you that hard work, good communication, good character, along with competence in the industry go all the way to ensuring the best possible market price for your home.

How am I going to help you?

  1. Choose the most appropriate method of sale based on the market for the property.

  2. Create an advertising campaign that gets noticed and draws buyers in.

  3. Qualifying interested parties.

  4. Report back to you what the market is saying.

  5. Making sure buyers have all the relevant material to make a decision.

  6. Dealing with issues as they arise.

  7. Negotiating the sale.

  8. Following through for an easy transition to the new owners.

Twenty-seven years in the advertising and printing industry has taught me the importance of marketing. Add to that, two years of green screen management for an events company, and I know about giving the public a great experience they will enjoy and remember.

I have honed skills in marketing, video marketing, and using social media, and I know the importance of web and especially mobile advertising. More and more people use their mobile devices to find what they want.

Who am I?

My wife Jan and I have two teenage daughters. Growing up in both Te Atatu Peninsula and Te Atatu South, we are now seasoned Te Atatu Peninsula locals and love this community. Other interests include, fishing, paddleboarding, table tennis, movies (especially a good sci-fi), eating out, and fine wine.

Te Atatu Peninsula has been my home for many years and I could not see myself living anywhere else in Auckland. Real estate agents in Te Atatu Peninsula are a dime a dozen and there is a lot of competition for your business. I only ask you give me the chance to tell you how Barfoot and Thompson and I can give you the best result possible in the marketing and selling of your home.

Call me for a chat now.

My wife and I have had the pleasure of working with Mark Boyd from Barfoot & Thompson Te Atatu on the recent sales of two of our houses. He offered a professional yet personable experience, and delivered on everything he committed to.

We appreciated how down to earth he was, and how he always had our best interests at heart. We were also thankful for the sound advice we received and his ability to go the extra mile to get a sale. Mark had a tireless work ethic and dedication to the job, including long trips to our holiday home to finalise deals. 

Right through the process of selling, Mark was always on top of it, and was quickly available to answer questions. He patiently and knowledgeably walked us through any questions big and small and this certainly took a lot of pressure off us.

It was a pleasure working with such a knowledgeable, compassionate, and tolerant person and we would highly recommend Mark to anyone selling and wanting the best price for their homes!
