Rachel JonesJade was incredible! She is obviously passionate about her job and confident in her skill sets. She has strong attention to detail, which I appreciated. Jade had fantastic communication and updated us regularly. I felt clear about the processes and trusted her to do a great job – and she did! There is nothing more we could have wanted in a salesperson. I will continue to recommend her to anyone selling.

James and Lisa BertramPurchasing a property through Jade, she was amazing: she made it feel as though she was working for us just as much as she was working for the vendor. No hurdle too high, no mountain she couldn’t climb. If we ever sell and move: Jade’s our girl!

Deborah and Kerry Hassard StI cannot speak highly enough of Jade Christie-Smyth. This woman not only marketed our property but project managed it as well. Because of these difficult times with Covid-19 Lockdowns and closed Auckland borders, it was a very difficult task for me to get up and organise the property to get it ready for sale.

I was introduced to Jade and from that day she then basically took control. “Wonder Woman” comes to mind. Jade worked tirelessly for me, organising the best tradespeople and ensuring the work was completed to a high standard and on time. Within two weeks the house was up and ready, and looking amazing for the marketing team.

With her experience of the market and her selling skills, she did multiple open homes, private viewings, always reporting back with honesty and integrity.

She always had belief in our property and always made sure the property was well presented and for this reason our property successfully sold under the hammer on Auction day. Thanks to Jade and her team and their commitment to us, the vendor, we were delighted with the outcome and managed to sell for well over our expectations.

I would like to thank Jade for her outstanding work plus all of the Barfoot & Thompson team, all of whom made the sale of our property possible and of course successful. I cannot recommend Jade, the Auctioneer, the manager and the staff that work in the background that make this company such a pleasure to work with, enough.

Jade, you are a ‘Shining Star’. Thank you.

Deborah Bradburn, Hassard St.

Jade started helping us more than two years ago. We were renting out our home, and she helped us to sell it remotely. We fully trusted her and she went above-and-beyond to help us. She was our eyes and ears locally when we where not able to be there. Even after the transaction took place she helped us until everything was sorted. We have been very fortunate to have Jade help us. Again thank you Jade.

When recently selling a house in Maunu for a family Estate, we interviewed several real estate salespeople. Jade’s personality and her presentation were extremely professional and we had the feeling that she would be especially helpful in dealing with issues that might arise, given we live in Auckland.

As it turned out she ended up having to organise an electrician, a water blasting company and cleaners amongst others, and happily watered the indoor plants herself and all done willingly and in a timely manner. Her communications with us were excellent.

She developed a comprehensive marketing programme, and after only three open homes we had four offers on the table. The selling price significantly exceeded our expectations and the unconditional sale was settled within five weeks of the property being put on the market – a fantastic result all round.

We found Jade and Barfoot & Thompson’s Whangarei office a pleasure to deal with, and would definitely recommend her to anyone contemplating the sale of a residential property in Whangarei.

“We would recommend Jade to anyone and we’ll use her again if we are in need of a salesperson in the future. She showed incredible initiative, thoughtfulness, integrity, and energy throughout the whole process and was absolutely fantastic to deal with. It felt like she put as much care and effort into selling our home as she would her own.”

Matt & Renee Lansdowne

It is with absolute confidence that I write this testimonial for Jade on behalf of both my husband and myself. We met Jade as the salesperson who listed and managed the property we have just purchased.

Having sold real estate in the past and having changed homes a number of times over many years, I had reasonably high expectations of a professional salesperson, those being integrity, great communication, listening and timely feedback of information, friendly and approachable, and being genuinely interested in what is important to you….amongst other things.

Jade certainly met, perhaps exceeded our expectations as a professional who is certainly an asset to Barfoot & Thompson, Whangarei. Should you want to sell, find a home or both, again we say with confidence that we recommend Jade as your go-to salesperson.

Trish and Bruce Avery

We decided to list our property with Jade after being highly recommended by friends who had recently sold their property. Jade was honest, easy to deal with, focused and was very organised and thorough throughout the selling process. She also designed and presented a very good marketing plan that targeted, and reached, prospective purchasers in the right value range which lead to a sale well within our expected time-frame. We would highly recommend Jade to anyone who is considering selling their property. Thanks Jade!!!!

Paul & Sharon

“We recently purchased a property from Jade and found her integrity and support for both vendor and purchaser outstanding. So much so that we decided to list our own property with her. Jade’s detailed approach to our marketing plan was meticulous, thoughtful, and customized to our specific circumstances. Right through the process Jade communicated clearly, was very professional and considerate.
The outcome was a successful sale in a timely manner. We would not hesitate to work with Jade again should the opportunity arise and highly recommend her as a trust worthy, honest, professional estate agent.”

Paul & Lucy

“Jade was superb. She organised a timetable of house decluttering, cleaning and polishing, marketing and open homes (she even lent us her water blaster). Dozens of people came to see the property and, in what seemed like no time, we had three good offers. Nothing could have been better! Thank you Jade.”

R & P Mead

This wonderfully genuine lady talked us through buying and selling property. She kept it real at all times with her upmost honest and Professional approach. If you want someone who has foresight, strength and commitment then this beautiful lady will deliver. She helped us change our lives and we love her.


Jade and her team at Barfoot and Thompson provided an excellent service for both the sale of our old and purchase of our new property. She listened carefully to what we wanted and was very thorough in finding the perfect house for us through hours of research and determination. Her effort, market estimates and advice was exact when it came to buying and selling which enabled a smooth and efficient transition for our property upgrade venture. We highly recommend Jade and the Barfoot & Thompson Team.

K & A Wallace

Jade did such a great job working with us on the sale of our house. She made it such a stress free experience and we were lucky to have found her. She got us the result we wanted faster than we thought possible. I would highly recommend Jade to anybody looking to buy or sell property.

T & L Udjur

From the moment we first met Jade we were extremely impressed with her professionalism and attention to detail, so selecting her to market our property was an easy decision. Throughout the marketing period Jade really went the extra distance for us ensuring our house was widely and professionally advertised, and beautifully presented at open homes and private viewings while we were overseas. Jade’s communication was excellent, and we remained fully informed during the marketing period. Jade achieved a pre-auction offer well exceeding our expectation, resulting in a very quick and successful sale. Selling a property can be a very stressful experience… not with Jade Christie-Smyth!

David and Sonya Prchal

My mother’s place in Kamo was listed with another agent for six months with no success and very little contact from the Agent.

After pretty much giving up hope I was very fortunate to get in contact with Jade Christie-Smyth. From first contact she came across as very professional and gave me a positive attitude that the property would sell – AND IT DID!!!

She had a plan of where and when things would happen and always followed through by contacting me and keeping me up-to-date of progress made. Would highly recommend her to anyone I know that would be selling or buying.

Sonya Jones

I bought my first rental property through Jade and found her to be friendly and helpful. Buying can be stressful but the process was made easy and I appreciated everything being done quickly and with no hassles. Knowing I was not local to the area, she offered to recommend builders to do the pre purchase inspections and patiently waited for me to organise all the paperwork around my work schedule. Jade was a pleasure to deal with and very personable, so I didn’t just feel like ‘the buyer’. I would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a property. Thanks again for all your work Jade.

Joanne Mair

I bought my first home through Jade. She was awesome and very helpful throughout the whole thing – no stresses at all and everything was done with the utmost integrity and efficiency.

I’ll definitely call on her again when I decide to move on.
