WHY COMPARE REAL ESTATE AGENTS, FEES AND APPRAISALS
When selling a house in New Zealand, every vendor is entitled to competence. Vetting licensed real estate agents using a stringent criteria is therefore what we do, all at no cost.
Once our vetting is complete, we then send you a shortlist of real estate agents proven to have integrity and the capability to achieve an optimal result for you. This is always tailored to individuals/families, property types, values and expectations.
You can then compare estate agents and real estate agencies with greater assurance that you're dealing with agents whose performance has been scrutinised prior as the variations are many.

REAL ESTATE AGENCY COMPARISON IS WORTH DOING
Every real estate company has it's own systems and rules for:
- the standard real estate appraisals which include market appraisal values
- client care and services, communication and problem-solving
- industry compliance and training of sales people and agents
- real estate agent recruitment policies
- negotiating commission and fees

AGENT QUESTIONNAIRE HELPS COMPARE REAL ESTATE AGENTS
Clients report that using our freely available Agent Questionnaire also helps them to quickly establish the best real estate agents. You can view their reviews here.
It's comprehensive and centralises all the information you'll need to be fully informed about the whole process, including obtaining a property appraisal.
When selling a property, we can provide you with greater confidence in the knowledge that you are only comparing those who have been vetted and proven capable of negotiating the best outcome for you.
This process reduces your risk of choosing unsuitable real estate agent, ensures you are fully informed and will have an optimum real estate experience.
COMPETENCY WITH LEGAL ADMIN A MUST
Every contract or legal document you read or sign needs to be interpreted and understood, in the event that clauses need to be added or deleted, and to ensure the dates and amounts are accurate.
There are multiple legal documents about property and ownership; titles, LIMS, PIMS, boundaries, covenants, codes of compliance, and many more.
On top of that, you’re likely to be dealing with signing agency agreements, and sale and purchase agreements involving hundreds of thousands - or millions - of dollars.
When entering into a contract with a real estate agent, you should be confident that they have a comprehensive knowledge of technical and legal property documentation. The importance of this is not to be underestimated and certainly something we are particular about.
DUE DILIGENCE DETERMINES THE FATE OF YOUR HOUSE SALE
Conversely, we are also well aware of what hinders a real estate experience.
"I was over the moon with the sale price we achieved, but more importantly the whole real estate process has been stress free! We found our real estate agent to be outstanding in his professionalism.
Thank you so much for recommending him to me... I was beginning to think that I was going to have a bit of a nightmare on my hands with after spending a week talking with some other real estate agents who were selling in the area.
Thank you for your agent recommendations". Jo | Manakau City
