Frequently Asked Questions

What’s the difference between Restate and traditional real estate agents?

The real estate industry is traditionally based on a ‘sales culture’ and ‘commission-only’ business model. It’s no secret…  a salesperson’s job, is to talk you (the client) into doing whatever enables them (the salesperson) to get paid… unless you say “yes” they don’t feed their family. This creates a basic conflict of interest between what’s…

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…

Why are traditional commissions so high?

It’s mainly because they are contingency based, which means you only pay a fee if you choose to sell at the end of the day. However, when you do sell – you pay substantially more than the true cost involved. You are effectively subsidising the time, effort and expense – agents spend working for other…

    “We engaged Restate Ltd to sell our rental property following previous experience as a buyer with Carl Slade as the agent. Right from the beginning when listing our rental property we were put at ease with the process with a complete & comprehensive explanation of the new marketing plan & model by Restate Ltd’s professional consultant. Within a few days photos were taken, the house was advertised, & on the website, & there was an open home. We found our agent Liz to be completely professional, communicative & friendly & at all times working hard for the most favourable outcome. Liz kept us informed of all progress along the way & within a coupe of weeks we had a signed contract which quickly went unconditional. We are very happy to have sold so quickly – thank you Liz!! Thanks to Carl & Liz we received fantastic service with a great result. We would have no hesitation in engaging Restate Ltd for any future property transactions and highly recommend their new marketing plan & model.”

    “When we decided to sell our family home of 15 years, we thought long and hard about who we would engage to market it for us. When Carl discussed Restate’s marketing strategy he made a very valid point; that real estate agents all use the same media tools to market property i.e. print, websites etc, the key difference is the level of service and the fees. Restate’s fee structure was the deal breaker for us. It was just commonsense to pay for a professional service rather than a flat commission rate. This was followed up with professional and honest service, with frequent and open communication from the whole Team at Restate. We are delighted to have sold our home to a new family for a fair price, and saving ourselves thousands in fees. Thanks Restate!!”

    “On behalf of our clients we reviewed the options open to us to sell their property. We were drawn to the new consultancy model proposed to us by Carl Slade as it not only could result in significant cost savings but it gave us increased confidence that the agent was indeed acting on behalf of the vendor. In the end the property sold quickly at the upper end of the value range and we attribute that greatly to the advice given along the way. Our clients saved an estimated $8,800 in fees as well”

    “Selling a home for the first time was a task with many uncertainties. Finding a real estate agent we felt we could trust was to be the first and most important hurdle. Asking around friends, family and colleagues led us to Carl and his awesome crew. At our first meeting, Carl took the time to methodically take us through the details, process and options for marketing our property. We felt instantly at ease with Carl and felt very comfortable with the options for both marketing strategy and choice of fee structures offered by the Restate. Carls experience was obvious and his sound advice allowed us to make an informed decision as opposed to being told what to do….awesome stuff. Throughout the process we were put at ease as the team were efficient, friendly and communication was excellent, always keeping us up to play.
    Given the housing market we (thankfully) accepted Carls sales strategy and adopted their new fees model. The property sold within the sales strategy time frame and we saved $2,689.00 by utilising the new fees model. More importantly Carl and his team gave us the confidence that we had made the right choice by going with the Restate, so we have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone needing the services of a Real estate company.
    …Again thanks for making the sale a painless experience ”

  • “When we chose Restate to sell our property there were two reasons:

    1. The price advantage over traditional commission methods, and just as importantly
    2. The confidence we got from the agent when discussing Restates philosophy and methods (especially when it comes to use of the internet).

    The price advantage was realised & we enjoy the fact that we have only paid for the service required to sell our house. Nothing more, nothing less.
    The thing that really impressed us though, is the service & support from our agent, Adam Dufty. He kept us informed at all stages, he offered advice & made it clear the decisions were ours and when thing got tough he leapt into action & made things happen. We have bought & sold many times, and all agents say they work for the seller. We can honestly say this is the first time the agents actions matched the words. Selling with Restate has been a very pleasurable experience during what is traditionally a stressful time, & we
    unreservedly recommend them to any one selling their home.”

    “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. ”
