HOW TO FIND THE BEST AGENT TO SELL

  • Photo: Steve Prosser

The safest way to find the best real estate agent to sell your property is to have them 'vetted and proven competent' - a genuine free service available to New Zealand vendors. 

Selling your home with the very best real estate agent, combined with being properly informed changes everything - your sale price, the time it takes to sell and the quality of your experience. 

When you make contact, we provide you with a shortlist of vetted real estate agents who meet our stringent criteria for you and your property - the same day if possible.


From this tailored list of agents, you can then compare their:

  • Market appraisal  and estimate of value

  • Experience with your property type

  • Tenacity, capability and integrity

  • Communication skills and much more

Our questionnaire will help guide you through the decision-making process - to determine which real estate agent will best meet your expectations taking into account your timeframe, property value, type and location.

This is a bespoke service, adjusted as necessary for the wide variety of property types our clients have. There is no place for luck or complacency when selling a house.


Vendors often want to know is how much real estate commission will cost first. Find out here.



HOW VETTING REAL ESTATE AGENTS BENEFITS SELLERS

If your goal is to achieve an optimum sale price and have a superior experience along the way, our vetting is what makes the difference. 

Every home seller's situation, timeframe, property type, structure, legal description, location and sale price range requires a tailored, professional approach by a competent real estate agent, one who you can genuinely rely on to look after your best interests.

WHY REAL ESTATE AGENT VETTING IS NEEDED

From the moment you start thinking about selling a house and getting real estate appraisals to signing a sale and purchase agreement and then meeting conditions of a sale, there are multiple legal documents to be interpreted, including clauses added or deleted. These need to be checked, signed, amended, re-signed and more.

There may also be a long list of conditions that need to be met within a tight timeframe.

Not surprisingly, most people have no experience with this kind of complex transaction which also involves a lot of money - for many people it will be the largest transaction they have ever made. 

This allows room for unwittingly poor decision-making at the various steps along the way, from choosing a real estate agent to deciding on the best method of sale, deciding on a price for your property, approving marketing and advertising and reaching New Zealand's largest home buying audience in the current market.

Selling a house has become more complex and legally binding, and in our experience, most people are short on time and are likely to put themselves at risk by short-cutting the due diligence process.


 

​FINDING THE BEST AGENTS QUICKLY

Choosing the wrong real estate agent is often the result of a decision made under time pressure.  Having recognised this is an issue for people, we have an express service to help you get things moving quickly.

If urgency is needed, fill in our online form now or start a Live Chat. Tell us about your property and location, and request a shortlist of suitable, vetted real estate agents quickly. 


 

NO PLACE FOR LUCK WHEN SELLING A HOUSE

Unsurprisingly, hundreds of complaints are made to the Real Estate Authority each year for reasons such as non-disclosure, conflicts of interest, misquoting or being misleading. 

Don't take any risks -  good decisions are far more reliable than good luck.
