Selling your home? 4 reasons why you need an Agent

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

Real Estate Agents, often questioned as to whether they’re important or not and they really are just in the role to ‘line their own pockets’. It’s 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.

Perhaps these benefits will help to justify why you need an Agent!


We’re continually learning and updating our skill sets, ensuring thatWe not only the most up to date, but the most competitive and are continuing to challenge the status quo. As a Vendor you don’t just want an Agent that does the bare minimum, or just does what every other agent does.

What does this mean for the Vendor?

  • Marketing and sales knowledge work hand-in-hand to help make sure that your property is presented in 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.
  • Expert advice to set the asking price of your property, so that you don’t set it too high or too low. As well as knowing what method is best implemented to sell your property; Priced , priced by Negotiation, Auctions or Tenders, deadline sales. Because, do you know how to list a home?
  • Local-market knowledge, knowing what buyers are in the area, or what buyers outside of the area are currently looking for, in your area.

Believe it or not, selling your property can be very time consuming.

From, open homes, marketing campaigns, correspondence and negotiation, the list can be lengthy. Agents are enthusiastic about showing new listings to prospective buyers and have the time and experience to be present in your home to meet clients, when you may not be available.
