an experienced real estate PROFESSIONAL and SAVVY marketer…

raewyn jonkers

After 20 years in real estate, I still love my chosen career, which has given me an incredible amount of experience and satisfaction during every step of my journey.

Barfoot & Thompson has always been my home as I started my career in 2002 at the Kumeu branch. By 2005 I had been appointed Branch Manager of Barfoot & Thompson Helensville and now I am delighted to be part of the Millwater branch selling the Millwater and Coatesville community.

I pride myself on always giving my clients an edge through innovative and effective marketing. My exceptional negotiating skills, in-depth knowledge of the industry and an unrivalled competitiveness and passion, combine to make an impressive package. A focus on individualised service allows me to stand alongside your property as a committed, creative and highly energetic force. And after so many years in the business, I have now found my niche, selling high end and luxury residences. 

While a formidable force alone, I enjoy working alongside Karlene, harnessing the benefits of her savvy marketing skills and business acumen. Combined, we are even stronger.

When you’re passionate about what you do and where you do it, that’s when you achieve outstanding results. I love living and working the Hibiscus Coast through to Coatesville and I love selling real estate. Using my savvy marketing experience and business acumen gained from working in media planning, I thrive on helping vendors achieve the best sales price with innovative and compelling marketing campaigns. This marketing experience was preceded by a Bachelor of Business, a Diploma in Marketing and a Diploma in Management.  

I feel a strong connection and commitment to the Millwater community and I am a believer in the power of bringing people together. As a way of giving back, I organise and M.C. regular community networking and fundraising events. I am particularly honoured to be a Trustee for the Sophie Elliott Foundation, who alongside the NZ Police, facilitates a programme in high schools to help prevent relationship abuse through education, awareness and empowerment.  

I have an analytical mind, I strive for a level of perfection which can at times drive me crazy, and I believe in honest, transparent service. While a formidable force alone, I enjoy working alongside Raewyn, harnessing the experience of her successful 25-year tenure in real estate. Combined, we are even stronger.

Essentially, as a long term investment, you cant go wrong with real estate. In the words of Mark Twain “Buy land, they’re not making it anymore”.
