On average, 7,000 residential properties are sold, with the most common sales conducted by a Real Estate Agent, each year in New Zealand.

Real Estate Agents are often questioned as to whether they’re important or not, and are they really just in the role to ‘line their own pockets’. This is a common misconception and one that I used to believe myself—until I became one!

I founded Rise to do Real Estate ‘ better’. I didn’t want to work for a big company but for my own private business, where I could ensure that my clients would receive first-class services which would only allow for clients to capitalise on their assets, rather than lose more than they need to.

These four benefits may help to justify why you need an Agent when it comes to buying or selling a home or parcel of land.

1. Experience

We are committed to continuous learning and skill enhancement, ensuring that we remain at the forefront of our industry. Our dedication to staying updated and competitive allows us to challenge the norms and exceed expectations. As a vendor, you deserve an agent who goes above and beyond, offering more than just the basics or what is expected from others in the field.

What does this mean for the Vendor?
  • Marketing and sales knowledge work hand-in-hand to help make sure that your property is presented to the highest possible standard and works to attract the right people. An Agent knows where to promote the specific listings and has access to ‘people in the know’ to help sell your home.
  • Receive expert guidance in determining the optimal asking price for your property, ensuring it’s neither undervalued nor overpriced. Additionally, we’ll advise you on the most effective selling method tailored to your property, whether it’s a fixed price, negotiation, auction, tender, or deadline sale. After all, listing a home requires strategic insight and knowledge – and that’s where we excel. Because, let’s be honest … do you know how to sell a home and navigate all of the paperwork ins and outs? 
  • Leverage our in-depth local market expertise to understand the preferences and needs of buyers both within and outside your area. We’re attuned to the nuances of the market, enabling us to effectively target and attract potential buyers, ensuring your property garners the attention it deserves.
2. Time

Selling your property entails numerous tasks, from executing marketing campaigns to negotiating offers and organising all required paperwork. This process demands considerable time and expertise. We’re dedicated to showcasing your property to potential buyers, even when you’re unavailable, ensuring no opportunity is missed.

We collaborate with seasoned marketing professionals, leveraging their insights to effectively target qualified buyers throughout New Zealand. By developing tailored marketing campaigns based on these insights, we ensure that your property receives the attention it deserves from those most likely to be interested. This strategic approach saves you time and ensures that only the most qualified buyers are brought to your doorstep.

3. Capitalising

One of the major benefits to you as the Seller, is having an Agent like ourselves to sell your property for the highest possible price in the fastest time possible. We believe and have proven time and time again that this happens because of our skill set, experience, advanced marketing and negotiation skills, in addition to quality property presentation, showing it to as many highly qualified buyers as possible, with the special inclusion of our unique property videos to visually showcase your beloved property for all its worth!

4. Added Benefits

Whilst it’s a known fact that many Real Estate Agents offer Free Home Appraisals to provide you with a greater understanding of the potential income that you could make off of your property, not all agents offer that in addition to merchandise when you sell, and genuine 24/7 support.

Even better, if you’re a Waikato local, you’ve likely encountered and relished the content of our Rise Community Magazine over the past few years. This platform not only enhances our marketing capabilities but also provides our clients with a cherished and traditional advertising space; we’re for our clients!

Whether you’re ready to purchase a home or property or even list your own and take advantage of our added benefits, we would love to hear of your next steps! Feel free to get in touch with us at any time to pick our brains!
