Who is Anthony Barkley?
A life spent in service industries (including 5.5 years at the Rotorua Golf Club and 3 at the Whakatane Golf Club as their NZPGA professional) has given Ant skills required to manage people extremely well. You can certainly say Ant is a people person and forms relationships with vendors and buyers naturally.
He loved his time at the Rotorua Golf Club but a change of direction was needed. Supported by his wife Hozumi and senior Harcourts management at the time he made the decision to change careers. He still maintains his NZPGA accreditation and golf for him now is as a hobby.
Ants growth in the industry has been outstanding with many awards and success stories. He has won to date 3 Rising Star Awards for the Central Region (Hamilton-Taupo-Tauranga-Corramandel) and has been in the top 3 salespeople in the Rotorua office many times including November 2019.
With Ants Growth came the need to hire a PA and buyers assistant. Nike Keen was at the front desk at the office and joined Ant to help with the workload and allow the continued growth to happen. Watch out for 2020.
Ant values family and has great support from wife Hozumi and daughter Amy. Hobbies include fishing and as stated above, golf when he can. Ant is also part of a Rotary group in Rotorua and enjoys getting involved in community activities.
You are certainly in safe hands if you choose to work with Ant and his team.
