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.


The growth of Ant the real estate salesperson has come through hard work. As he says, he is just used to it as that is all he has done. 

Ant values family and has great support from wife Hozumi and daughter Amy. Hobbies include fishing and as stated above, golf when he can. 

You are certainly in safe hands if you choose to work with Ant and his team.
