With 20 years of service to the country ( Royal New Zealand Navy 1971 - 1991 ) and 20 years in the business of real estate you can be assured that I know the value of commitment, loyalty, service, team work and results that both I and my clients can be proud of.
Selling is what I love to do best and I love the challenges entrusted to me through 20 years of real estate on the North Shore. Year on year I have enjoyed referral and repeat business, from countryside lifestyle properties to 1 bedroom rental units, which comes directly from having given excellence in service to my clients and customers. That’s my mandate to continue into the future.
‘International investors and ex pats holding rental property on the North Shore’. If you are ready for a change in your investment strategy and you want to sell your property either on Auckland’s North Shore or West Auckland then I can help you too.
No matter what company you have managing your property I can liase with them to meet the tenants, appraise the home, make recommendations and bring the home into the Barfoot & Thompson portfolio of available property for sale in a timely manner. Our extraordinary market share means more qualified buyers working with a vastly greater sales force. We are Auckland’s leading real estate company and can be found here at www.barfoot.co.nz.
The same commitment is there if you are also considering the purchase of property on The Shore.
With an ageing population I am particularly aware of the need today to protect the interests of our aged or older generation who may not have the support of any family nearby. It’s about less speed and more care and I would recommend family members refer me to their solicitors or trustees when they are considering a selling option for parents and relatives. I care and I can help you as I have helped many elderly and interesting kiwis over the years glide through the process of selling the family home and moving out to a slower lifestyle or retirement living.
Satisfied, exciting sales result from discipline, commitment, belief, organisation and service.
My 20 years of service to New Zealanders in the Royal New Zealand Navy (1971–1991) where I also worked for two and a half years in navy rental housing ( 515 units and homes ), gave me the skill set needed to understand the concept of added value and superior results.
If you believe my attributes suit you, or your families need to sell, please call or communicate with me today.
My warmest and most sincere regards… Testimonials
Ian & Deanne, Glenfield
After a call to the manager of our local Barfoot & Thompson branch, Darren James selected Dutch as a suitable person to work with us, and he was without doubt a perfect choice. He is extremely knowledgeable about our type of house and how best to market it...........
Dutch demonstrated a very strong knowledge of the market and what would be required to get our house sold. He proved absolutely correct in every statement he made. He followed through on everything and was excellent to deal with. I appreciated his honesty & straight up no painting unrealistic pictures approach with his instruction on what we needed to do to assist the process.
I am grateful to him for all he did. He is a man of integrity and very professional ( Abridged )
Julian & Lucy - Hillcrest
"Dutch has exceeded our expectations at marketing and selling our property. His enthusiasm was contagious and he delivered in all aspects. He has great knowledge of the market and was able to provide us with all the information we needed to make the right decisions. On top of that he made himself available regardless of time of day or day of week. We have no reservations about recommending Dutch and will use his services again for our next sale."
Betty – Hillcrest
"Dutch made the daunting task of selling for the first time a much easier task. He took away the stress and was always on hand to deal with any questions and helped with advice on preparing the property for sale as well as physically giving a hand. Always had a smile and nothing was too much trouble. I would recommend him to others without any hesitation."
Judi - Pinehill
"Thank you for the fantastic job that you did with your marketing and selling but mainly your understanding and support in what was a difficult situation."
Vicky & Paul - Bayview
"Dutch was recommended to us by family and we met with him as well as a couple of other agents. After the initial meetings we felt Dutch was the most honest, upfront and understanding of our situation. It also helped that he didn't pester me as the other agents were doing which is something I hate! Dutch gave us the time we needed to sort things out and get the house ready for marketing but still keeping in touch and keeping us on track in the declining market. The marketing plan was great for our property and Dutch and Lin worked hard at open homes and in between weeks to garner decent interest in the property and also gave us sound advice on the offers and our best possible options. Overall highly recommend Dutch for any property purchases or sales."
Christine & Bill - Glenfield
"We were impressed with Dutch when we started looking at a property to buy a couple of years ago. He was very helpful and it was no trouble to visit a particular property and revisiting to check out a variety of things was made an easy process. I immediately thought of him when it came time to sell our own property and have not been disappointed.
There are many real estate agents out there but it is great to have someone who is experienced, knowledgeable and shows genuine interest. I would not hesitate to recommend Dutch to anyone wanting to buy or sell a property."
Katie & Ben – Bayview
"Dutch was fantastic, the work he put into selling our property was exceptional. He guided us step by step through the process of selling our first home which has been fairly stressful for us and he has been there every step of the way with support, guidance and information. Dutch went above and beyond our expectations of what a real estate agent would do for us and we would definitely use him again if we were to sell in this area. Thank you!"
Paul & Janet – Bayview
"Dutch was always available whenever we had a query, he was very thorough, and although selling a house is not something one can really judge as it is over 10 years since we previously sold a property, everything went well and we would not hesitate to contact Dutch again should we have a property to sell in Auckland."
Dorothy & Colin - Bayview
"It is hard to quantify the warm regard my wife and I have for Dutch. He has always given service and help way beyond the normal. Long may he reign! Dorothy & Colin Gladman."
Murray - Glenfield
"Dutch is a great agent and will go the extra mile."
OR & BM Properties Ltd - Browns Bay
"We enlisted Dutch to sell our apartment on the North Shore for us. Although the sales period was over the Christmas/New Year break Dutch worked right through for us, and ensured no leads were missed. Dutch worked hard to ensure we achieved our desired price. We would not hesitate to recommend Dutch."
Martin & Teresa – Glenfield
"We chose to use Dutch as he had been very professional and helpful when we bought a property a few years ago. We have now had much more contact with Dutch and have found him to be the very best example of a real estate agent. His knowledge far exceeded our expectations and his friendly and approachable nature made the whole experience very easy for us. We always felt that he had our best interests in mind and were entirely confident taking his advice. He worked incredibly hard for us and we were very glad that we had chosen to use him. We would most certainly recommend Dutch to anyone looking to buy or sell a property and we thoroughly enjoyed our time with him. He has an open invitation to visit us in Rotorua anytime!"
Sue – Glenfield, Birkdale, Birkenhead
"This is the third property Dutch has helped me sell this year. I would highly recommend him to any buyer as he goes beyond what is expected of him to be helpful and supportive and is very knowledgeable about the local market. I have now moved out of the area but I am sure if I needed advise in the future Dutch would not hesitate to help again."
Pam – Birkenhead
"Dutch van Geuns has performed remarkably well in achieving a great price for my property. I have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone. Thanks a lot Dutch, appreciate all the hard work you have put in to get a successful sale on my home. Cheers, Pam."

what people say about Ian....
Thank you Ian and Lisa for ‘taking me on’ and working to sell my property. As an absentee vendor, I was grateful for the continual communication throughout the marketing campaign and the work that went into obtaining the result on auction day. Deciding to sell was a big decision ‘made easy ‘ with the knowledge and professional skills that I experienced from listing to selling with Ian and Lisa Molloy. THANK YOU.
We recently engaged the services of Ian and Lisa Molloy to sell a property. Ian and Lisa’s whole approach, their advice, follow through and marketing, and their liaising with us, was excellent.
We were kept fully informed throughout the entire process, including on the day of the auction and we felt as if we were all working as a team. The result was a very successful sale, with no hassles or problems. We would chose to work with Ian and Lisa for any future real estate buying/selling and would definitely recommend them to others.
Our thanks to them both for a really good experience.
Jennie Leary (also on behalf of Warren Spindler
"Seven years ago we purchased a house through Lisa Molloy. At the time we found her fantastic. She listened to our needs and presented us only houses that would meet our requirements. She was efficient and represented us well during the purchase process. So when it came time to sell our house we immediately got in touch with Lisa. She set in place a great Marketing program and gave us good advice on how to maximise our value. Lisa and Ian have a great knowledge and the Albany area, and worked together well as a team to help us through the sale process. This included representing us in dealings with the tenants in the house, as well as during negotiations with prospective buyers. We would recommend both Lisa and Ian to those wanting to buy or sell a home."
Micah and Meenal Gamman, Unsworth Heights
"Could not fault the service from commencement to finish. Thank you Ian and Lisa for a job well done."
Rosemary Bridge ,Glenfield
"I came across working with Ian as Lisa Molloy contacted me after I went through a Barfoot & Thompson open home, They both came to my house to do an appraisal, I found them to be the best agents I have dealt with, they each had their strengths and worked very well together. Ian was the listing agent who conducted all the open homes, while Lisa worked very close with me in helping me find a new house! Overall my experiences with Ian, Lisa and the whole Barfoot & Thompson team exceeded my expectations."
Daniel Currie, Houston Pl Glenfield
"I have known Ian for several years. In my opinion he has a very good feel for the area, he is very honest and trustworthy, and I cannot fault the service that he provided."
John McIntosh Stanley Rd Glenfield.
"We have know Ian and had dealings with him for over 20 years, buying and selling properties. We have found him very professional and hard working, and he has achieved the results that we were
Gary Cooper, Mairangi Bay
"We contacted Lisa looking for help buying our first home, after a glowing referral from a family member. From the first contact Lisa took the time to ask what we wanted, talk about where we wanted it and get a feel for 'us' as a family. Lisa has an amazing talent for finding 'the one' and once found - she was our number one advocate, advice giver and cheerleader through the settling process! We have been in our home for over 8 months now and we STILL talk about how right Lisa got it when she found us our home. We tell anyone who is looking for a home about her skills and level of service, and will do so for quite some time!"
Chris and Emma Hannent, Birkdale
"My husband and I started out working with a number of different estate agents, none of whom could seem to grasp our very specific requirements, until we met Lisa. We very quickly decided to work solely with Lisa based on her excellent communication and ability to interpret our needs. Our needs and budget requirements were very specific and I imagine finding us the property we did eventually settle on (which we are extremely happy with) was a somewhat frustrating process, but we certainly never felt that from Lisa who was always happy to go above and beyond to assist us. In addition Lisa was very supportive throughout what was a difficult settlement (due to the vendor) which was greatly appreciated. Thank you for all of your hard work and support in finding our wonderful new home!"
Kerry and Brendan James, Manuka Rd Glenfield
"I purchased my first house from Ian and Lisa in 2004. Since then, I have purchased 3 more through them and sold 2 as well. Ian and Lisa have been honest and professional in all my dealings with them. Ian has sold both houses very quickly and without fuss – while at the same time Lisa was busy searching for our new abode. Both of them make buying and selling a house a stress free and easy process.
I would highly recommend using Lisa to help you find your next house – her inside knowledge was invaluabe in purchasing each property. When it comes to upgrading to the next house, I will definitely be calling her again."
Guy Lincoln, Sartors Ave Browns Bay
"Lisa helping us buy:
Lisa helped us find and purchase our first little home in Glenfield 7 years ago, and we were so happy with her service, we never even considered asking anyone else to help us when it then came time to move on and find our perfect long term family home. Her amazing attitude and ability to network with other agents to negotiate a purchase is what puts her miles ahead. She really listened to what we were after, and then wasted no time at all starting to identify opportunities with hot properties and work her contacts. When it came to our purchase, she went the extra mile to represent all parties’ best interests, and scrupulously ensured the contract ual process was clear. Our new home is our dream home and Lisa has gone on to help several of our friends and family buy theirs too. We can’t recommend her highly enough."
Aimee and Gavin Brock, Deep Creek Rd Torbay.
"Lisa and Ian helping us sell:
We felt in the safest of hands with Lisa and Ian – at every step of the process we felt they explained clearly what the options were and what would give us the best outcome. Their advice on how to present our house proved its weight in gold when we literally received our first offer three hours after our first open home! We’ve already recommended their service to several friends all of whom got the same sales result – complete happiness."
Aimee and Gavin Brock, Torbay.
"When we purchased our house in November 2011 we found Lisa to be friendly, knowledgeable and professional. She showed us good quality houses that matched our search criteria. She provided local insight to locations and never tried to hurry us in any of our decisions. We were recommended to contact Lisa by a work colleague who purchased her house using Lisa's service and I've since referred her to several friends who have also found just the right home they were looking for. I will continue to recommend Lisa and will ask her to help us again when we look for our second house!" Nova Kellicut & Anton Wicken, Seaview Rd Glenfield "Lisa was wonderful to deal with. Being a busy woman, I did not have much time to arrange appointments to view properties. Lisa took all of the hassle out of the process, and would email us updates every day of new properties on the market. She also took the time to sort out any issues, and chase up outstanding requirements. Being our first home we did not have much knowledge of what was required, and were very grateful to have Lisa's invaluable experience to draw upon. We would highly recommend her services to our friends and family."
Sonja Glover, Brian Cres Stanmore Bay
"We cannot speak highly enough of your staff at the Glenfield Branch and their level of expertise and professionalism especially Lisa Molloy.
She has been priceless and has worked tirelessly even though we were on the verge of giving up she somehow managed to find us a property that suited us and our future needs. All this whilst in France and trusting her over the phone and internet.
She has made the purchase of our first home so much easier in a sense she could relate to us and know exactly what we wanted and worked for "us" on our behalf. We cant thank her enough and we would like to also thank you for getting your staff involved in helping me and my family find and buy a home whilst we are on the otherside of the Globe which is no easy task."
Tamato and Joy Leupolu, Tetrarch Pl Totaravale
"The service and personal attention we received from Lisa Molloy while searching for a new home and selling our current home was exceptional!!!
Lisa contacted us after we went through an open home, from that day forward we were in daily contact, she organised everything to get our house sold, as well as finding our new dream home
She understood our needs and really listened to what we wanted in a new house and never tried to push us into something that didn’t work, which is something I really appreciated!
We managed to get the right price for both properties (selling and purchasing) this was all down to Lisa.
Lisa really restored my faith in real estate agents after having some not so pleasant experiences in the past, regardless of whether you are buying or selling, I would highly recommend Lisa, we could not have asked for a better Realtor to guide us through the process"

Sales Associate to Ian Molloy
After many years working in banking and finance, I decided to enter the real estate industry as I was well versed in providing customers with mortgages and advice and also regularly liaising with real estate sales people.
I felt empathetic with the buyers going through the property purchasing process and wanted to be able to assist them with quality service as well as providing them with expertise regarding the finance process. So in 2003, I commenced working with Ian Molloy as a sales associate with particular emphasis on looking after buyers and assisting them to find a home.
It has been a very successful partnership over the years and many sales later, I still feel passionate about helping match buyers with houses. From starting out mainly focussing on buyers, I now regularly re-list those same houses I sold initially and enjoy helping my clients find another new property.
