Estate Agents

LEIGH STOREY - Barfoot & Thompson

The opportunity to make a difference in people’s lives is what makes real estate so attractive for me. The unlimited potential in so many areas of this business makes every work day unique and special. 

Barfoot & Thompson’s values of People, Family, Diversity and Community filter through to every part of the business. Their strength as a company comes from their people who support each other every day to satisfy their clients with honesty and transparency. Their involvement in the local community whether sponsoring events, supporting various sports teams or helping community organisations, plays a part in making Auckland a great place to live and work.

I have a Diploma in Sales and Marketing. It gives me the skills to market your property to potential buyers and create a successful sales campaign.

Mairangi Bay and the Shore have been home for me and my family since moving to New Zealand in 2015. Spare time for me, my husband and my two boys, usually involves the beautiful beaches. We all love the water. Soon after arriving in this beautiful part of the world we joined the Mairangi Bay Surf Lifesaving Club, qualified as lifeguards and the rest is history!

Real estate involves my three loves in life. People, property and finding people the property to make their home. I speak English and Afrikaans and you’ll find I always go beyond what you might expect from a salesperson.

Call me at Barfoot & Thompson Mairangi Bay.  I know and love the area and I can help you find that special place!

KARIN BLAAUW - Barfoot & Thompson

In this fast-paced, complex and competitive New Zealand property market, the path to success has many twists and turns - you need an expert guide to avoid getting lost. With my strong marketing skills and smart strategy, I will help navigate the sale of your property, keeping you on a steady course and focussed on your goals.

Why choose me? I know property and I understand people.

I listen, I empathise and I gain insights into what buyers and sellers really want and need. These insights help me quickly connect the right property with the right people - and when the time comes, they empower me to get the most out of every negotiation.

I provide personalised service, defined by honesty, clear communication and impeccable professionalism. I’m an enthusiastic problem-solver and I love a challenge. Every client is unique, but my goal is always the same: to achieve outstanding results for you, using my experience, skills and the latest tools and technology available. I appreciate that your home is one of your greatest assets. You can be sure that I understand the complexities of the market and I will fight to get you the best possible outcome.

Working from Barfoot & Thompson Browns Bay and also living on the Shore since arriving in New Zealand, I’ve come to know what makes the Hibiscus Coast such an attractive area for families. Recently, my family and I have moved into our very own home in Manly, just one of the many beautiful sandy beaches to enjoy.

I am a passionate mum with a strong belief that success is to be shared. I enjoy volunteering at both of my son’s schools, as well as other Auckland not-for-profit organisations and charities.

Choosing Barfoot & Thompson was a strategic move for me. They are the largest privately owned real estate agency in New Zealand, still owned and operated by the Barfoot and Thompson families. Partnering with them ensures the team working behind the scenes is the best in the business.

I am fluent in both English and Afrikaans. If you’re looking for a salesperson who genuinely cares about successful outcomes, contact me today. I’m happy to talk about your goals and how I might help you achieve them and, the coffees on me!
