This free and independent New Zealand real estate service has existed since 2009 to help home sellers be better informed about choosing real estate agents. 

We were adamant that more real estate consumers deserved a higher standard of service and conduct from their real estate agents. But selling a house infrequently, people didn't really know how to determine who was competent and who wasn't. Some know what due diligence is needed but are time-deprived.

With a background in recruitment management, we knew we could help, but with real estate commission fees already a contentious topic, we set about providing this as a free service.

So in 2009, Trish Willis set about establishing this NZ Agent Finder service, nationwide, a service that protects, informs and empowers vendors to make better choices about real estates agents to sell their houses - all free.

Since then, Kiwis transacting over $324M of real estate have used Agent Finder NZ.



  • 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, but only 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 can 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.

In 2018 Agent Finder NZ was awarded Best Estate Agent Vetting Service by APAC. Get In Touch
