Grant Haworth

North Shore Agent

Grant’s career started with Barfoot & Thompson in 2004. Grant has direct experience in the Retirement Village sector both in Australia and New Zealand and therefore has a unique understanding to ensure people make an informed decision.

If a decision is made to move, then Grant will work to achieve a stress-free transition from start to finish and the best possible sale price for your home.

Grant was involved with the recent successful sale of our home. His advice was invaluable and at all times he kept us fully informed of the process and progress. His knowledge was communicated with mature positivity and great humour. We would recommend Grant, as he is an astute professional salesperson, who goes that extra mile with all of those involved with the sales process." Alistair & Annette Munro
