If planning to sell a residential property in New Zealand internationally, it can be advertised and marketed to Singaporeans, Australians and the important Expat community living abroad looking to relocate.

International real estate transactions need proven, confident and competent real estate agents with substantial experience, thorough knowledge and project management skills in the real estate industry.

When real estate agents target their advertising to attract international buyers, both the real estate company and the estate agents need to have a firm grasp of government policies and legal documentation essential for completing a sale competently.

For example:

  • Inland Revenue policies
  • Immigration NZ policies
  • MBIE policies for running a business or working in New Zealand
  • PIMS, LIMS, survey plans and titles, easements and covenants
  • Anti money laundering policy obligations
  • Tenancy obligations if the property is rented

There is no room for errors or ommissions in any real estate transaction but for international transactions, there is added responsibility on the agent and accountability for the agency.


When investing money into advertising and marketing campaigns, you have much to gain but also much to lose if you choose an unsuitable real estate agent.

Real estate vetting to establish the top international real estate agents proven competent will have a direct impact on your experience, house sale price and the time it takes to sell.

This is our forte as we have been independently vetting real estate companies and agents for different property types and values for over a decade.

We are independent of the industry and positioned well to help you find a suitably qualified real estate agent and agency.


We ensure that real estate agents needed for selling a high end home are competent at negotiating million dollar sale prices with million dollar buyers.

Integrity, tact, confidence and expertise cannot be under-estimated. 

A top international real estate company based on quality and the calibre of the agent's skills are what will attract for you the highest sale price in the shortest possible time.

Lately there has been an increase in ex-pats returning to New Zealand and properties being sold sight unseen. The way in which a property is expertly marketed enables buyers off-shore make these decisions.

We can certainly help you sell your NZ home by finding you a top agent whilst you are in the planning process. It is a free service for NZ home sellers as we are remunerated similar to that of a mortgage broker so it's all very standard.

If real estate agency work is not conducted efficiently, a buyer can get turned off and slip through your fingers very quickly. Choosing a top agent is imperative.
