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…

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.…

    “Having sold our business in Timaru, the plan was to move closer to family. We considered our options of selling our home & were impressed by Restates advertising. With a visit to the Restate office wanting an explanation of there procedures for selling our home. Firstly we were welcomed by friendly staff & secondly Adam clearly explained the process of selling our home using the Restate system. Not being in any hurry to sell the decision was to market the home quietly to start with. Our home didn’t take long to sell & Adam kept us clearly informed along the way. We felt very comfortable working with Adam who made selling our home a simple, stress free experience.We would recommend the Restate System to anyone considering selling there property.”

    “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.”

  • “Why did we decide to go with Restate?

    A number of reasons, but the key was how black and white Restate’s model and philosophy is. It connects with you, it’s positive and it works!

    Carl, Liz, Adam and the team were wonderful to work with – great listening & knowledge of the market. How confidential Carl and the team were was outstanding. This is a team who care about the seller but offer the buyer an honest and transparent sales model too.

    On top of all that, our fees were close to half what we would have paid a traditional agent. I would not hesitate in recommending Restate to your selling mission.”

    “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.”

    “This property was sold under our new model – here is what our client had to say.” We listed our property with Restate Ltd in July 2014. The reason we decided to list with them is because of their new approach to the selling process, which we considered to be fair for both parties. All aspects of the sale process were clearly explained, we were involved every step of the way, and had the say in exactly how each process was to be implemented. Our property had two offers within two days of being on the market, and went unconditional a couple of weeks later. With this new approach to the selling process, we saved over $6,000!! We could not have asked for more when it came to being kept up to date throughout the process and would not hesitate to list with them again.”
