Licensee Salesperson, Ray White Glenfield
Joe was in born and raised in Essex, England. A school leaver at 16, he landed his first job making tea for the area’s top Real Estate professionals. Into adulthood he studied the craft of property sales - mastering the arts of creating killer marketing campaigns, through to negotiating and closing the final deal. He still makes an awesome brew.
Leaving the UK in 2012, Joe and his wife settled into life on the North Shore of Auckland. After finding his feet, Joe co-founded the Kings of Bayview team with a clear mission statement – Provide homeowners with an unparalleled and unbeatable Real Estate experience.
An embittered Tottenham Hotspur football fan, Joe claims to have three women in his life - his gorgeous wife Loreley, their baby girl Matilda and his beloved Triumph Bonneville motorcycle. He refuses to pick a favourite.
I firmly believe that the team are great Real Estate Agents and they provided a fantastic service to me. They did so much more (and did it better) than what you might expect from an agent and always work for their clients to provide them the best service possible. Furthermore, the Kings of Bayview perform very well as a partnership and their different advantages should give house sellers tremendous confidence. I will definitely work with them again when I sell again.
I had the pleasure of working with Joe Hurn to sell my property at 14/37 Waipa St in Birkenhead. Joe initially caught my attention with his marketing know-how. His all-digital marketing plan, including video and social media is savvy and relevant, and helped keep my costs down. But from the moment Joe stepped through my door I just really liked him - a personable, energetic and approachable guy, I felt really comfortable entrusting the sale of my house to him. Joe works doggedly and provides regular feedback and advice, he understands the market and is really passionate about his job and his customers - Joe will go the extra mile for you. Having now sold my house for a price that I'm delighted with, and having thoroughly enjoyed working with Joe, I unreservedly recommend his services. Thanks Joe!
Andy and Joe made the whole experience of selling our house so easy. Any questions were always answered promptly and enough info was provided to enable us to make an informed decision. I would want to buy and sell a house with the Kings if I was to do so in future.

My wife and I really appreciate all the work you did for us during the four weeks of marketing. They provided us clear information for the entire process of selling a house and made great marketing, especially the 3-minute long movie introducing our property. The movie was amazing and everyone I showed it to liked it. They sent us detailed feedback about open home every week and let us know whenever there was any minor issue. We would not be able to get the great result we achieved without the team. Once again, we sincerely appreciate all of their effort and their quality performance. We strongly recommend these two great men to anyone who is planning to sell or buy a house.
Our house is SOLD!!! I want to say a HUGE THANKYOU to the Kings of Bayview, for all the effort they put in to selling our house..(in just 5 days I might add!). We had a really great rapport with these guy, who worked tirelessly for us in the lead up to and during our campaign and had really innovative marketing strategies. Their professionalism was outstanding, but they also kept things light with a great sense of humour. I would highly recommend these guys to anyone selling their home!!!
Joe and Andy did a fantastic job for us. They helped take what can be a stressful experience and turned it into something fun and energetic, while maintaining a high level of professionalism. All the advertising was to a very high standard, time and feed back was given to ensure we were comfortable with what was going on, and at the end of the day a higher than expected result was returned at auction. We could not be happier with their services and have no hesitation in recommending them to future vendors.

We recently sold using the Kings of Bayview. I would highly recommend them to anyone wanting to sell. Joe and Andy are not pushy, very easy to deal with & achieved an amazing outcome for us. They are professional, excellent communication and made selling an easy and care free process.

We just sold our house a few days ago with the help of TKOB. If you live on the shore (particularly Bayview area) and are thinking of selling your house, we highly recommend them. They are great. Very easy going, professional, fun to work with, good communicators at all times. They know their stuff; they make you feel secure and the whole process painless. Give them a go, you won't be disappointed.

Jo and I would like to thank you so much for all the hard work you guys put in on our behalf to make the sale of 16 Elliott Ave such a great success. The final number far exceeded what I thought was achievable and that of course was a reflection of the hard work that you put into the project. You communicated well, set out your aims, and in my opinion exceeded those aims, and the final result was absolutely stunning. I take my hat off for you guys, the 'Kings of Bayview', a title well deserved. Once again, thank you so much for your great efforts.
Peter and Jo
I just sold my property in Bayview via Barfoot and Thompson's Joe Hurn and Andy Ling aka 'The Kings of Bayview' and from the outset was thoroughly impressed with their professionalism, integrity, knowledge and attitude. They made a stressful exercise seem a lot easier and took only 20 days to get a result.... Well done guys! Their foresight and knowledge of the market definitely gave me a huge advantage for my sale and I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending them and would be only too happy to engage their services in the future. Thanks again guys for a brilliant job.
From the first introduction we had a very good feeling about you guys and both of you did not disappoint us in any way. Something both of you should be very proud of is that you are YOU and not some stinky salesperson who likes to make the quick buck or two. Marleen and myself always were informed about anything we needed to know and what to look out for during the whole process. The result we achieved just after two days on the market was outstanding and sure will open us to new possibilities for our future in Nelson. From out heart, we highly recommend the Kings of Bayview not only for their professional approach but mainly because they are REAL and that's important. THANK YOU GUYS so much you sure rock.
Michael and Marleen
Just thought I would send you both a note to commend you on the sale of my property in Bayview. After almost 9 weeks on the market with another listing agency, I hadn't received any offers and it was looking pretty tough. However after listing with you both, you managed to get a multi-offer in front of me - within 2 business days!! Awesome work and a fantastic job! You have both done an excellent job to sell my house - thank you. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you both to anyone looking to sell a property.
We met Joe & Andy for the first time in early December to discuss marketing our home pre-Christmas - and two weeks later after a short sharp marketing campaign they put up the sold sticker! We can't rate the boys highly enough for the complete professionalism and attention to detail that they demonstrated from start to finish. We would not hesitate in recommending the boys to anyone in the Bayview community (or anywhere really) looking to take their house to market, who want honest & straight up advice in a prompt & reliable manner. Well done boys!
Gav and Jen
Joe and Andy are both professional, down to earth and approachable agents who are experts in Bayview. Both have been dedicated agents, available to speak to whenever and their service has been exceptional, taking the extra step when required. Thank you both, we are stoked with our sale!
Thank you for all the hard work you put into the sale of our property, you took a lot of the stress away and made the sale process so much easier. We are very happy with the outcome.

We were absolutely thrilled with the Kings of Bayview! Joe, Andy and Liz promised they would work hard to achieve a great sale on our home and boy did they deliver on that promise! We achieved a sale after only 2 weeks and had a multi-offer situation after our first open home weekend. We were absolutely astounded as we were selling right before Xmas amidst cooling market conditions. I put this down to being well educated by the Kings of Bayview as to current and comparable sales in our area but we were blown away that we achieved the sale price we wanted. They say that selling a home is an extremely stressful process. Well that couldn't have been further from the truth. The whole process was so seamless. The marketing of our home was exceptional and extremely cost-effective. We put this down to a team that are clearly passionate, professional, honest and extremely knowledgeable of the Bayview area. We highly recommend to anyone considering selling, to look no further than the Kings of Bayview. They are aptly named.
Lisa and Gareth
We would highly recommend the Kings of Bayview, if you are planning to sell your home. Their marketing campaign and the person they used to take photos of our house was excellent and made it look fantastic. While we were looking to buy another house we noticed lots that were advertised had really average photos and weren't presented very well. Joe, Andy & Liz were so professional and really easy to communicate with and helped us tremendously along the way. If you are looking for a great team of agents to sell your house and get you a great price I highly recommend the Kings of Bayview
