When considering who you get to sell your Whangarei home we always suggest that commission should not be the deciding factor, but one of many. The right agent with the right plan can be the difference between an okay price and an exceptional one so the whole service you receive needs to be considered.
Our strong belief is that with the increase in property values over the last few years* the ‘standard’ fee was not fair to the seller, the one who worked hard to buy the home. So we came up with what we consider a fairer fee, one that is 25% or more less than the majority charge. Our agents still perform well, and are rewarded fairly for their efforts, while passing a better net result than most to our sellers at sale time.
*As an example when comparing the Whangarei median sale prices for June 2015 and June 2018 shows an increase in values of approximately 52% which equates to commission/success fees increasing by approximately 41% !
(success fee increase based on a fee of 4% to $350,000 and 2% thereafter, plus a $400 base/administration fee)
We keep our fees fair without compromising service because:
#1 Our reputation is our lifeblood
High quality service and premium results delivers repeat and referred business from happy clients. We work tirelessly to find the best price in the market, and make the buying and selling process as smooth and stress-free as possible for all parties.
#2 Our agents are supported:
We want great people getting great results for our clients. To get these people, and retain this quality, we need to provide an environment that supports them, recognises their value, and rewards them both at work and home. With our transparent structure for both client and colleague we are able to work together with trust and communication to all parties, the platform for success. We also recognise that there are times when more than one is needed to fill the role of selling your home and our team and management are always there to help out.
#3 We keep our overheads low
The nature of modern real estate is mobile…and more cost efficient to run. Meetings are often held in private offices, in the homes of our customers/clients or a local cafe while large portion of the background work is generated and measured online, keeping costs down. We meet where it’s convenient for you and bring our technology with us. We still have a base office to work from when needed but keep this to the minimum necessary – and pass those savings on to you.
