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 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.…

    “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 ”

    “I am pleased to recognise the excellent service by “Restate Limited” in selling our house and acknowledge their new approach to fess represented a saving in the order of $7,230.62. After considering a range of agency offers we were encouraged by a structure that we judged fairer and gave a greater commitment to shared involvement in the sale process. This proved to be the case. I am therefore happy to recommend the team from “Restate Ltd” and to endose their new agency 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.”

    What a great experience it was selling a house with Restate. My view of real estate agents has now changed for the better. Adam is an excellent communicator with a refreshingly honest approach towards the real estate business. I would not hesitate to recommend Adam to anyone who is looking for a professional to sell their property. – Michael Robert

    “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”

    “Restate Ltd made our house sale process simple and to be honest quite painless, they helped us achieve a quick sale with maximum return on the property which is not an easy thing to do. With their new fee structure they were also able to save us money in real-estate fees. Carl and his team were a delight to deal with from start to Finish. I would highly recommend their service and use them again in the future.”

  • “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.”
