Frequently Asked Questions

How do you calculate the extra PROFIT you create for your clients?

It’s very simple. We measure it against what you would have banked after all expenses, had you chosen to engage us under the traditional ‘commission-only’ fee structure. Which is calculated on the local standard rate of:  $500 + (2.95% up to $390,000 + 1.95% thereafter) + GST. For example if you go to our case studies and…

How much are your fees?

Our fees can be anywhere from a few hundred dollars to thousands of dollars. It depends on exactly what you need from us and how much work is involved in helping you. You see unlike traditional agents, who only offer a ‘one size fits all’ approach to their fees (usually a percentage of your sale…

How can we DECREASE our selling costs?

The first step to maximising your profit is to increase your selling price. But once you’ve done everything possible to increase your price, the only other way to maximise your profit – is to reduce your expenses…   1. Avoid fundamental mistakes and traps.

    “After having various Real Estate agents around we decided to put our trust in Restate to sell our house. Adam was a great communicator from day one, cared about what we wanted, and this new business model just worked for us.
    A huge thanks must go to Adam for successfully selling our house. Because of him we saved heaps in Real Estate fees and got a good price for our house- plus he had it signed up in less than a fortnight! Definitely recommend!.”

    “We like the new cost stucture, that of, real estate consultants. You’re into save alot of money, especially if you sell quickly or your house is in the upper price bracket, and it makes sense. Our house was a moderately priced house and took almost 8 weeks to sell, but we still saved $1900.00, that is new appliance! Liz was also great in general, very friendly & approachable, very hard working, we felt she was totally committed and had our best interest in mind. Thanks Liz!!!”

    “We engaged Restate Limited to help sell my mothers property. With a somewhat tight timeframe and realistic price expectations we could see the benefit in their innovative new real estate model. Ultimately this saved us over $4,000 compared to the traditional model. We felt their team were at all times focussed on my mothers best interests”

    “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”

    “Typically I believe that estate agents add little or no value but in terms of the service provided for the remuneration received I think that you have done a good job – I’ve sold 8 houses to date through agents and you have been the best agent and agency and I find your new commission model acceptable where as I normally find the traditional fee structures offensive.”
    “I’m sure that I have made it clear that generally I have an intense dislike of real estate agents so any recommendation from me is quite an achievement.”

Throughout all transaction and negotiations both Carl and Liz have been professional, friendly and supportive.

Restate definitely made the whole experience operate as smoothly as possible and with the least amount of stress.

The Real Estate Industry Is Fundamentally Flawed

  It’s an unfortunate truth, but how the traditional ‘Sales Culture & Business Model’ works, is responsible for bankrupting the real estate industry of trust. Because of it, consumers (the very people the we serve) are paying dearly for a massively inefficient industry.  And, the term “Real Estate Agent” (in the eyes of society) has…
