About Scott

I grew up in the beautiful Franklin area, and have specialised in real estate in this and surrounding districts for many years. I have closely observed and tracked the amazing growth, realty turnover and regulation changes in the region. These observations have rewarded me with extensive knowledge including property trends, financial fluctuations and sales data. I constantly put these to use for the benefit of my clients, achieving out- standing prices for my sellers, sourcing ideal homes at all price points for buyers, and tailoring effective marketing campaigns to suit each individual property and budget.

  • I met Scott on several occasions at a couple of Open Homes. Then my hubby went the property on Hereford with me and then we visited again! Scott could tell our interest was piqued and talked to us about the property, giving us extra details and discussing points that we should double-check before auction day. Then Scott helped us through many of those questions quickly and efficiently. It definitely made ours and the lawyer's job easier. Thanks so much Scott!

    Les & Lorraine - March 2023

  • Scott sold our property at auction with a satisfactory outcome. Scott was very helpful and professional at all times, guiding the seller in securing a positive outcome. We have know hesitation in recommending Scott McElhinney from Barfoot & Thompson Pukekohe.

    Karen & Murray - November 2022

  • Scott has extensive market knowledge with a well oiled marketing machine behind his sales. The marketing plan might seem expensive but it covers what is needed to sell a property. Scott sold our bare land up on Drury Hills during a difficult time in the market for a reasonable price. Work with Scott and you can expect results!

  • Great experience, a pleasure to deal with, fantastic end result. Knows the rural industry property market inside out and back to front. We couldn't have asked for a better person to deal with, represent us and our home. All went very smoothly. Thanks again Scott and you’re dedicated team of professionals.

    Adrienne & Shane - April 2022

  • Scott is very professional and knowledgeable about the Franklin area. He let us look through the open homes without following us around and pointing out the obvious (here's the bathroom etc) like some agents do! He was very approachable, warm and gave the right amount of information.

    Leigh - March 2022

  • We found the team very well organized and friendly. Scott was professional whilst friendly. He followed through on all questions we had. He was always on time and kept us up to date every step of the way. I would support anyone wanting a professional efficient sale to go on this journey with Scott as he makes the process glide. Thanks to all involved in this process.

    Monique & Aaron - February 2022

  • Scott's rural property market insight and knowledge and our previous experience with him made him the go to agent. Scott gets things done and a property sold. Well recommended, thanks Scott.
