“After reading Carl Slade’s blog which features in the Property Times, we were keen to engage Restate to market our home. It turned out to be a great decision and with Adam Dufty’s expertise the sale was actioned almost immediately. We found Adam to be very caring, informative agent who also steered us carefully through the mire of purchasing another property else where. And the savings we made were an added bonus.”

“Having sold with Carl previously the decision to list our property with Restate was obvious. Carl gave us the choice of Restates new fee structure or the more traditional real estate fee structure. It was great to have the opportunity to save money, and we were very happy with the outcome achieved by Restate. This sale was quick and straight forward, the negotiation easy, and as we were not living in the property, and neither of us lived in Timaru, the way Liz worked with prospective buyers to get them through the property at a convenient time was super professional. Restate is a great new concept, well done! Thanks again.”

“Using Restate has proven to be the correct decision for selling our home. Very professional and a positive can do attitude made for a stress free experience. Initially we chose to go with traditional commission, but Restate kindly charged us based on their professional service model, saving us $3,165.”

“I cannot recommend Restate enough. The Restate model has worked for us in the past so it was an easy choice. Not only for the savings in commission but the whole marketing package. Adam kept us fully informed throughout the entire process. Our home didn’t take long to sell and Restate worked professionally to achieve a great result.”

“Yes we are happy. You delivered to our expectations. We feel you had our backs at all times. Your final fee was more than fair compared to traditional commissions and there was no wasting of money on unnecessary advertising. We felt involved with the process of how it was all marketed.
We would highly recommend Restate to anyone who is serious about selling and wants to get results. The team was professional and we are very happy with the outcome of utilising their services.”

“We had heard about Restate’s different attitude to home sales so when we decided to move on there was no contest on which Estate Agent to engage.
Adam spent time explaining the marketing plan and the appraisal range, andarranged for the photographer to visit.
Our home was quite quirky in design and he worked tirelessly to sell it, but always brought only those buyers who expressed interested in the house or the price range and persisted until the right buyer was found.
Communication and professionalism were excellent, with agents always ringing to arrange viewing times, and follow-up phone calls after each visit.
We appreciate Adam (and Liz’s) hard work and the energy expended to achieve the best result for us, and wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Restate (Timaru) for all selling requirements”

“Thank You very much for the sale of my property.
I have to say that from the time I sat down with Carl I felt very comfortable and excited about how his model of real estate selling could work for me and all the while leaving me with more money for our next purchase.
The team were all very professional to work with and kept me informed through the process. I would definitely recommend them to anyone who is considering selling.”

“We couldn’t recommend Carl and his team highly enough. It wasn’t just the huge savings in commission we knew we would be making, it was also their outstanding professionalism and their sage advice.
Everything resonated with us which made us decide to go with Restate. They are committed to working for you as the seller.
By only taking genuine buyers through our property was a big plus for us, as an owner you can appreciate the time it takes to get your home and property ready for viewing as well as having to vacate during this time.”

“It was a hassle free process. Some people find selling a house stressful but the team took care of everything & kept us well informed of what was going on, gave advice where necessary & gave very good feedback after every viewing or open home, be it positive or negative feedback. The fact you only pay for the actual time spent on the sale of the property plus a percentage of what we saved was the clinching reason we went with Restate. I have friends who are in real estate who we could have easily gone with to sell our house & got the same sale price but ended up paying a hell of a lot more in costs for the privilege. Adam always had our best interest at heart & we came away with a really good result. We felt that he was always working for us to get us the best price possible & not just working for a sale.”

“This is the third time we have used Restate to sell a property. We have found them to be great people giving great service. They are honest, open and definitely add value. We knew they had our back at all times and their new model is a lot fairer that traditional real estate. We are confident about Restates services that we have already recommended them to a colleague who is thinking of selling. We are thrilled, they delivered well above our expectations – again! After our three sales our total savings are $9,464.”

“The integrity and honesty shown by Carl and the Restate team made my real estate experience very satisfying. From getting the LIM report up front, to guidance on the work required to better match todays buyers expectations, to establishing clear goals without the exaggerations. Restate had skin in the game and delivered for me. The consultancy based model is not rocket science, a fair and transparent method captured all that should be good when buying and selling houses. I recommend Restate and believe you owe it to your family to check them out before you sign anything.”

Adam was very helpful and managed to sell it in 4 weeks. I would also like to thank Liz for her help as well.

“When we decided it was time to sell our house we spoke to a few different real estate agents. After speaking with Carl and hearing about the Restate way of selling, our decision was easy. We like that the team are working to try and change the real estate industry and give people better value for money and with the bonus of being local.
It was a painless journey for us and we appreciate the hard work that Liz and the rest of the team did in selling our house.”

“When Carl explained his new real estate model to us it was a no brainer, it made perfect sense. Carl & his friendly team were great to deal with, they made the whole process so simple & accommodated all our needs. The result speaks for itself with our home selling for $11,000 over asking price & saving $4,800 on our fees. The Restate team kept in contact with every step of the way. We couldn’t be happier with the restate team & would recommend them to anyone considering selling their property.”

“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.”

“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.”

“WOW what can we say, Carl, Liz and especially Adam you are all amazing. After living in our home for 38 years we were absolutely dreading having to put it on the market and put it off as long as possible. We got Carl around to explain his new model of selling and liked what we heard. From then on it was all plain sailing, the very talented Richard Brown took some amazing photos for us, the sign went up and within 6 days we had 3 offers, 2 of them well over asking price. During the whole process Restate were really mindful of not disrupting our lives too much, they always gave us a lot of notice when someone was coming through and the whole process was exceptionally painless. We cannot thank the team at Restate enough for their Professionalism at all times and are even more grateful for the $5200 that they saved us in Real Estate fees.
If you are thinking of selling please please do yourselves a favour, think outside the square, give Carl a call and listen to what he has to say, we are sure you will not be disappointed.”

“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.”

“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.”
