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

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…

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”

    About 12 months ago we were thinking about moving but did not want to be rushed. So we invited Carl to come and have a chat. After listening to our concerns & discussing different options, he suggested & laid out a plan that was best for us & our situation. It made a lot of sense & put us in control, so we could go along at our own pace.
    Nine months later, when we were ready, we met with Carl again to get the rest of the plan underway. Carl & Liz worked closely with our solicitor to make sure we were protected. They helped us throughout the whole process including advice around buying our next property privately. They were never pushy & we always felt they had our best interest at heart.
    We ended up with several offers within a week of putting ours on the market & sold for more than we had planned. Their new fee structure also saved us $4,900 more than traditional fees. This meant we ended up with a bit extra & could comfortably buy our new home without
    having to touch our savings. We couldn’t be happier with the team at Restate.

    “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.”

    “My husband and I recently decided to promptly sell our home, we knew exactly who to call, the team at Restate. Carl took the time to discuss his new sales model in detail with us, and after understanding this we knew we had made the right choice. We were in the process of moving into a new home & also had a 3 week old newborn, the team made this time stress & worry free. Liz & the photographer came to help prepare the home & recommend any changes & enhancements to the property, they were brilliant & completely understanding of our situation with the newborn. Carl, Liz & the team at Restate were professional, friendly & knowledgeable of the local market, but they were also honest & realistic. Their communication was great & always with the least disruption to us & our newborn. With Restate you really do get a whole team, & their Administration Manager, Bev, was pleasant, efficient & helpful. The whole selling process went smoothly, & we were confident we were in good hands. After the initial listing & marketing we found ourselves in a multi-offer situation with contracts above our expectations, & after accepting, quickly going unconditional. We are thrilled with the large profit made using Restate’s sales model compared to traditional Real Estate Agent fees. Overall, we are extremely happy with the selling experience & the final result from Restate, and would, without a doubt use them again & recommend them to family & friends.”

    “We were very happy with the new Consultancy Model run by Restate Limited.
    We were able to discuss openly with our agent, we felt listened to, and part of the decision making process on marketing and strategy to sell our house. We sold and went unconditional in 4 weeks, this saved us between $7000 – $10,000 on the traditional real estate model and certainly made the whole process less stressful. We would thoroughly recommend using The Restate Ltd new forward thinking consultancy model for selling your house.”

Which agent has the most buyers?

This is understandably a question many sellers ponder when selecting an agent. Your thinking seems to be that some agents have more buyers than others. Unfortunaltely this misconception is a trap. Firstly understand this undeniable truth: The ‘sales job’ in the traditional real estate industry is not persuading buyers to buy. It’s convincing you to…

Are they a ‘Salesperson’ or a ‘Consultant’?

  Have you noticed that most ‘Salespeople’ these days, especially real estate salespeople, are calling themselves ‘Consultants’? The specific term used is “Sales Consultant”. Tell me, what exactly is a “Sales Consultant”? I mean, come on, it’s an oxymoron if ever I’ve seen one. They are either a ‘salesperson’ or a ‘consultant’. They are either…
