My Top Agent is independent, which means we are not associated with any individual real estate firms. We stake our reputation on connecting clients with the best in the business and only the best, regardless of which firm the agents work for. Our Top Agents are selected and put forward to you, based off who has the best reputation for working with your chosen location and style of property, so you can rest easy knowing you’re in good hands.
If working with the best in the business isn’t enough to convince you, then you should also know that our Top Agents typically bring 10 to 15% more in sales price than the average real estate agents out there. With New Zealand’s current real estate market, that can mean a pretty significant difference to your bottom line. We’ve listed some recent case studies below to help you gauge that difference between average, everyday real estate agents and Top Agents.
Top Agent Trumps Average Agent with North Shore Home
In May, we had a client on the North Shore approach us for help. They had been using an average real estate agent, who they’d found on their own, to try to sell their property. This real estate agent had told them he could sell their property for $1.9 million. Sensing they could do better based off market research they had done, the vendor approached My Top Agent. We put them in touch with a Top Agent who had a skill for negotiation and a great knowledge of the market. This agent managed to strike the client a deal for $2.1 million dollars, a whopping $200,000 more than the original deal proposed by the average agent. Unfortunately the deal was called off, as the conditions of the buyer they were dealing with fell through. Un-phased, the Top Agent kept at it and managed to secure and close the sale with a different buyer who was also willing to pay $2.1 million for the property. So not once, but twice, a Top Agent was able to out sell a regular agent by hundreds of thousands of dollars, based off their strong market knowledge and sharp real estate skills.
It’s Best to Trust the Experts
In another recent incident, a client had come to us for assistance. We put them in touch with a Top Agent who could help them sell their Mount Eden home. The agent did their research, listed property and then received a number of offers between $720,000 and $730,000. The vendor believed they could get more money elsewhere, but unlike the client above they had not done their market research. So they took their property to another agency, where is sat for over 5 months before eventually selling for $640,000. Unfortunately in this case the vendor lost out on around $80,000 by not trusting the expertise of their Top Agent.
Buying or selling a home is an investment process that will have a huge monetary impact on your life. With high stakes decisions like these, wouldn’t you rather have the best in the business negotiating on your behalf over the average, every day real estate agent?
