We’ve restated real estate.

You’ve seen how the traditional commission-driven industry works, with excessively high fees and questionable ethics.

We think both you (our clients) and us (the agents here to serve you), deserve better.

So we developed a new approach to real estate, designed to be not only more professional and efficient, but also ‘fairer’ for us both.

It’s helped clients bank an average of over $4,500 more than they would have under the old way, and has been judged a winner at the 2016 South Canterbury Business Excellence Awards.

We help you bank more.

Banking the most profit from your sale doesn’t involve hype and it’s not about gimmicks. It’s about three things.

Avoiding fundamental mistakes, Increasing your sale price and reducing your expenses. That’s it. That’s the secret.

Frequently Asked Questions

What’s Prospecting & how does it make commissions expensive?

‘Prospecting’ is the activity of searching for people who may want to sell their property. You know … when salespeople door knock, tele-market, stuff things in your letterbox, hound, harass, chase, keep in touch, pretend to be your friend … all in the hope of one day winning your listing and collecting a huge commission.…

Can I ask how you are different…

This is a question recently asked by Chelle on our Facebook page… “Can I ask how you are different. Every agent I have dealt with has said how much better they are in one way or another . So please can you let me know how you work different to others. I am wanting to…

What do you mean by ‘PROFIT’ ?

Profit is how much you bank from the sale of your property, after all expenses. It’s a simple formula… Income (Sale Price)  less  Expenses (Selling Costs) = Profit.   Maximising the profit from your sale, doesn’t involve hype, and it’s not about gimmicks. It’s about two things. Firstly, increasing your sale price and secondly, reducing your…

    “We were genuine about selling so decided to give Restate a try. Their model made a lot of sense and we especially liked the transparency and honesty of their approach. They worked with us and put our interest at heart. It wasn’t all about their own profile and them getting paid a huge commission. That’s what we liked about this new model….It was about us. It really is a no brainer!!
    As we had a general dislike for the traditional method of real estate and struggled to see agents worth. Adam made sure that we not only got a great price, but also saved over $9,000 in fees.
    We would definitely recommend Adam and restate if you are wanting to sell your home and end up with more profit from your hard work.. Thank you Restate team”

    “We decided listing our home with Restate was the only way to go after looking at all the options. The explanation of the new marketing process made it simple to put a dollar value on each step of the process and the contract was easy to modify as we went to suit our requirements. Restate’s new marketing approach looked like it was going to suit us best as we decided on a good realistic price and didn’t want our home on the market too long. With good feedback from the agent and a short time on the market we got the result we were after. We would recommend the new marketing model to anyone, its more transparent, you are more in control of the process and the savings are significant compared to the traditional model. ”

    “When we decided it was time to sell our house we spoke to a few different real estate agents. After speaking with Carl and hearing about the Restate way of selling, our decision was easy. We like that the team are working to try and change the real estate industry and give people better value for money and with the bonus of being local.
    It was a painless journey for us and we appreciate the hard work that Liz and the rest of the team did in selling our house.”
