The cost of selling a house in New Zealand is expensive, an issue expressed by many. That is why in 2009 we wanted to provide our services for free.

Since then, Kiwis transacting the sale of over $350M worth of real estate annually have trusted us to find the most competent real estate agents to sell their homes, lifestyle blocks, apartments and investment properties throughout New Zealand. In 2018 we were awarded 'Best Estate Agent Vetting Service' by APAC.

Should you decide to engage a real estate who has met our selection criteria, we will charge the real estate company a fee, but only after your property sells unconditionally. 

Our terms with real estate companies require that our fee does not get passed on to you, so you pay the same amount of commission whether Agent Finder NZ is involved or not. You can however, be more sure of receiving best practice real estate and the best sale price. 

Our fee charged to real estate companies will be disclosed to you, making our service completely transparent for vendors. We have assisted thousands of New Zealanders since 2009, take a look at their reviews of our service.

Our vetting criteria is based on four categories and 20 indicators to establish competence.


  • Independent, genuine vetting and shortlisting of real estate agents and companies tailored to you, your property type and location.
  • Questions you should be asking real estate agents at interviews
  • Advice about getting accurate property appraisals, pricing your home and/or valuations
  • Examples of real estate fees and commission for various sale prices
  • Resources about signing an agency agreement and a sale and purchase agreement and everything in between
  • Informative resources related to your particular property type, that protect and properly inform you, at the time you most need it
  • Advice and support throughout the whole process should you require it using our Live Chat, email or free phone 0800 789 532, 7 days per week.
  • Buyer beware information for purchasing your next property - a must have.

Our service goes beyond any other real estate service available in New Zealand making our clients the most informed property vendors in the country.


Real estate agents cannot log in to this website and self promote. Agent Finder NZ is a genuine, bespoke service that hunts out the most competent real estate agents in all areas of New Zealand.

It is based on performance and service rather than numbers because numbers don't tell you about quality, especially when it comes to negotiating the very best sale prices.
