Almost 2 years after entering the Australian market, DIAKRIT has officially commenced business in New Zealand with Barfoot & Thompson real estate.
The partnership between DIAKRIT and Barfoot & Thompson has taken several months of strategic planning, integrations, training and recruitment to ensure the most efficient and effective launch not only with a new client, but also in a brand new market. Last week marked the first group of 8 offices to go live ordering DIAKRIT’s property marketing solutions, with the remaining offices to follow a detailed schedule between now and September.
Barfoot & Thompson are a family owned business with over 95 years’ experience and 75 offices throughout Auckland and Northland. As New Zealand’s largest privately owned real estate company, they are also internationally recognised leaders, with the most recent award being the Best Real Estate Agency – Asia Pacific at the International Property Awards last year.
In a New Zealand first, Barfoot & Thompson will be the first to introduce DIAKRIT’s interactive and engaging property marketing solutions to their vendors and buyers. Chris Dobbie, Barfoot & Thompson Chief Executive Officer explained “These new tools lift the standard in property marketing, providing a better quality and more true-to-life online experience with every Barfoot & Thompson listing. The quality and capability of the new tools will put Barfoot & Thompson’s vendors’ streets ahead of their competition, no matter their property’s price bracket.”
Established in 2001, DIAKRIT are proud to be present in Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Thailand, USA, Australia and now New Zealand. Dick Karlsson, DIAKRIT Co-founder said “New Zealanders have a reputation for being innovators and early adopters, and we are excited to see how the Auckland market embraces this new technology. Barfoot & Thompson is driven to do the very best for its clients, and through DIAKRIT’s range of solutions, are providing industry-leading technology that is already pervading in other progressive markets such as Scandinavia, Australia and the USA.”
