The smarter way of buying and selling real estate

A few nice words can help a person a lot more than you think

Three years ago I was fed up with the smoke and mirrors and game playing that was evident in the billion dollar NZ real estate industry.

I made a decision that if I wanted change I would have to do it myself. I wanted buying and selling properties to be a more transparent and honest process.

So that’s what my wife Hannah and I did.

When I first told people what we were doing, there were a lot of naysayers out there, quick to pass judgement and shut me down, and I received some pretty negative feedback.

If I had taken it on board I might have given up, and gone back to banking. But I didn’t.  Deep down I knew there was a better way. Sure, there were some sleepless nights as I stressed about what I was doing, but something inside me kept me going.  

We are now almost two years on and I sleep a lot better. We have proven it  -  our incredible team have created an impartial online real estate service, and in the process we are saving people loads of money.

But what really drives me now (and helps me sleep well) is the insanely positive feedback we receive. It reminds me that there is humanity out there and that what we are doing is making a difference… one sale at a time.

I wanted to share this note from some recent happy vendors in Mt Eden, Auckland.

“We cannot tell you how incredibly happy we are we chose Proppy! It was a huge decision to go with Proppy, as they are not the established market leader in our area, but Hannah and Hans were AMAZING. They were totally all over the market, brought loads of potential buyers through and over all else the thing that we really appreciated they were honest with us from start to finish. We were never fed any "real estate" speak and although we won't lie  - selling a house is stressful  - they made it way less painful that it could have been. The best news was the sale they got us, they totally came through with the goods and with 1.5% commission it takes some pressure off going into our next house purchase. If you want more money in your pocket and a great experience choose Proppy, you won't regret it!” - Shelley & Darren

Kind words like these make my day and remind me that we are onto a great thing.

Thank you to everyone for supporting us. We cannot wait to help more people just like Shelley & Darren. We are just a phone call or email away.
