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

How does your new culture change how you work with clients?

It simply shifts the focus from getting a listing and a commission – to truly advising in your best interests. For example, we recently met with some people who were unfortunately going through a relationship break-up. Which, as many of you know, is an emotional and stressful time. Often stressed people rush into poor decisions.…

What is your “Appraisal Accuracy Rate”

When getting appraisals from real estate agents, it can be hard to know if the agent is giving you an accurate and realistic price range… or pitching for your listing. We commit to giving you figures you can rely on. So we keep track of each appraisal and compare it to where the property actually sells. We…

    “Thank you Restate Ltd for providing an excellent service for the marketing and sale of our property…We were given friendly, realistic and pragmatic advice on how to present our property for maximum market potential. We also took advantage of Professionals refreshed lower commission based and user pays model for selling. A newer approach which I firmly believe is way fairer to both agent and vendor. Restate Ltd are an excellent selling team. Working well with prospective buyers, communicating effectively and informatively. Correct marketing strategy and skilled negotiation has been invaluable. A pleasing result for all parties concerned. Many thanks Restate!”

    “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. ”

    “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”

    “When Carl explained his new real estate model to us it was a no brainer, it made perfect sense. Carl & his friendly team were great to deal with, they made the whole process so simple & accommodated all our needs. The result speaks for itself with our home selling for $11,000 over asking price & saving $4,800 on our fees. The Restate team kept in contact with every step of the way. We couldn’t be happier with the restate team & would recommend them to anyone considering selling their property.”
    Thanks Restate.

    “We engaged the services of Restate Ltd. to handle the sale of our rental property. We were given a comprehensive explanation of their New Marketing Plan which we agreed to, and entered in to a contract to market the house. Within a few days the house was advertised; an open home took place and ultimately the property was sold in a matter of a couple of weeks. Restate Ltd New Marketing Plan certainly worked for us and also saved us a considerable sum of money. We would recommend Restate Ltd and their new marketing plan to anyone proposing to sell a property. Prompt and efficient service is always a bonus.”
