Agent Finder NZ was established in 2009 to help home sellers achieve a higher standard of service from their real estate agents.

As observers of the real estate industry we could see much room for improvement. While outstanding real estate agents were to be found, too often it was a lottery for home sellers and buyers and more so now that most agents sell across multiple suburbs rather than specializing in specific locations.

With a background in social work, care and health recruitment management, Trish Willis knew she could help, but with real estate commission fees already a contentious topic, she developed a model that enabled her to provide this service at no cost to vendors. 

Kiwis transacting over $340M annually of real estate have used Agent Finder NZ since 2009. Find out more.


The model works similar to that of a mortgage broker.

  • Should you decide to engage a vetted real estate agent who has met our stringent criteria, we will charge the real estate company a fee when your property sells.
  • Our terms require that our fee does not get passed on to you, so you pay the same amount of commission and fees whether Agent Finder NZ is involved or not.
  • You will however be more assured of receiving best practice real estate, excellent agent conduct and of selling at the best sale price possible, in the shortest amount of time.
  • We have assisted thousands of New Zealanders - take a look at their reviews of our free service.
