When starting the process of selling a house, people often want to do research first, but it can be a challenge to get reputable expert advice on finding a real estate agent that isn't simplified data crunching.

Furthermore, experience tells us that it's almost impossible to be completely informed about selling a house. Most information that will help you sell (or buy) well and do your due diligence is fragmented across multiple websites, making the task time consuming and often confusing. 

This is often the point at which people revert to old habits of 'leaving it all up to the agent' who popped a flyer in your letter box or was referred by a friend. In ten years of helping vendors, we have found this is the riskiest and least diligent way to choose a real estate agent if your hope is to have a satisfying experience and sell your house for the optimum sale price.

Agent Finder NZ was established in 2009 to solve this exact problem. You might like to read about Our Mission first or see some real estate reviews about us.  

Unlike in other instances where real estate agents are recommended based solely on highest number of sales or sales prices, Agent Finder NZ offers a comprehensive service that establishes the integrity of an agent on a broader range of factors than just the numbers, including how they conduct their business. Agent Finder is the only place where people will get a full real estate vetting service.


With knowledge of the house selling process, you know the value of doing your due diligence and using a real estate agent who has been proven to be competent.

But with time often in short supply, thousands of Kiwis like you use Agent Finder NZ to objectively vet real estate agents.
