| How do I change to your agency from my current selling agent?

It's simple! After viewing your current agreement and providing you are not exclusively listed we can act on your behalf immediately once we have the authority to do so from you in writing.

If you are exclusively listed with another agent we will do our best to work with them throughout the sales process to ensure we find the right buyer for you also.

An exclusive agreement with an agent is not to last any longer than 60 days by law. Once this 60 day period has expired you can either sign up with your current agent again or enlist the services of a new agent.



| How do you qualify buyer's?

Qualifying buyers for your property is as important to us as it is to you. We ask a number of carefully selected questions to establish exactly what buyers are after. Before contacting you for an inspection we ensure we have established an accurate idea of their wants and needs, with the final choice of the inspection being yours.



| If my property is tenanted, can my tenants refuse access to the agent and buyers?

No, providing the agent has given the tenant the correct notice periods as per the RTA act.



| How are you going to advertise my property?

Our marketing has proved to be the best in the business’ with our extensive advertising coverage we are able to find the most suitable buyers quickly that will pay the highest possible price. We will effectively advertise and promote your property to the widest audience and our cost effective marketing strategies involve a combination of the following to suit all budgets:

  • Leading internet sites

  • Advertising in selected newspapers

  • Digital Photographs

  • Colour brochures

  • Company sale list

  • Window Display - including touch screen display

  • Just listed brochures

  • Internal database

  • "FOR SALE" sign board (if applicable)

Our extensive marketing campaign will most often result in multiple buyer inspections.

After each "open for inspection" it is critical that we communicate with you in order to keep you fully aware of developments with prospective buyers. We will advise you of any feedback on each occasion and call you on a regular basis until your property is successfully sold.

Our entire team co-operates fully with enthusiasm to ensure that every marketing campaign has a successful conclusion.



| How do you assess the worth of my property?

We undertake a number of searches to ensure we price your property correctly.

We will send you a detailed report showing recent comparative sales and properties on the market similar to yours. We will also give you our expert opinion on price.



| If my property is managed by another agent can I still list my property for sale with you?

Yes, just because we don’t manage your property does not mean we can’t sell it. We must however follow the correct procedure of contacting both tenant and agency notifying them in writing on the correct forms. There is nothing for you to do but to sign the authority for us to act on your behalf with the sale, we will do the rest.
