WHAT SETS US APART
FROM THE COMPETITION
We’re small-scale, independent and expert at what we do. We work with only a few clients at a time and operate from a lean virtual office in the Bay of Islands — so we can offer the best professional service at a fair fee. No other capital asset advisory and agency business offers our unique combination of international, marketing and commercial experience, local knowledge, technology and professionalism.
Professional service at a fair fee.
OUR COMMITMENT TO YOU
“OUR BUSINESS FOCUS IS ON PROVIDING THE BEST POSSIBLE SERVICE AND RESULT AT A FAIR FEE.”
We are a team of highly motivated, top performing property, marketing and business professionals committed to doing things better. As a small-scale independent business your patronage means more to us and our focus is on results, not the number of clients. Maximising the financial outcome from a property or business sale, a project development, or a purchase, involves making important decisions and can be highly stressful. We understand this and are committed to making the process as straight forward as possible by guiding you through the steps and communicating regularly with meaningful feedback. Our deep experience, knowledge and systems allow us to provide a truly professional service and achieve the best result for our clients — regardless of the magnitude or complexity of the task.
WHAT WE BRING TO THE TABLE
“NO OTHER REAL ESTATE FIRM BASED IN THE BAY OF ISLANDS OFFERS OUR UNIQUE COMBINATION OF EXPERIENCE, TECHNOLOGY, SKILLS, INTEGRITY AND PROFESSIONALISM.”
The financial and agency sectors are undergoing rapid change and this disruption is creating both challenge and opportunity. Industry regulations and compliance with anti-money laundering, foreign investment and advisory related legislation, are requiring businesses operating within this environment in New Zealand to significantly upgrade their technology and systems. At the same time there is increasing consumer pushback to the very high fees traditionally charged. Our leading edge systems have been designed to perform in this new environment, allowing us to operate very efficiently at a significantly lower cost. We offer a wide range of asset advisory and agency services — including for commercial, horticulture, pastoral farming, coastal lifestyle and tourism property categories and going concern businesses.
YOUR TRUSTED ADVISOR
“WHEN YOU CHOOSE US TO WORK WITH, YOU ARE MAKING AN INVESTMENT IN THE EXPERIENCE, SKILL, INTEGRITY & PROFESSIONALISM OF A PERSON — NOT A BRAND.”
If you think a “brand” is going to guarantee you the result you’re after — think again. It doesn’t matter what the “brand” is, or how big the firm is. It is the experience and skill of the actual person doing the work for you, together with adequate time allocation and attention to detail, that will achieve the best outcome. When you choose Coastal & Country as your trusted advisor, you are intentionally choosing to work with an independent, highly experienced and appropriately qualified professional focused on your objectives — rather than the anonymity and notional safety of a “brand”.
OUR MARKETING APPROACH
“WE KNOW FROM EXPERIENCE THAT WEB BASED MARKETING IS THE MOST COST EFFECTIVE APPROACH FOR OUR CLIENTS.”
We have access to all of the recognised capital asset and business marketing channels, digital media tools and print media publications as other firms. Our focus however is doing it smarter, better and at a lower cost for our clients. That means an emphasis on online marketing and limited use of print media — the latter in our view often doing a better job of promoting the agency than the property asset or business (at the client’s expense). We utilise the two largest online marketing platforms in New Zealand — together with other specialist websites and social media platforms where appropriate based on the nature of the capital asset or going concern business, the client’s budget and other objectives. We add substantial value through crafting a marketing campaign focused on gaining maximum exposure for the lowest possible cost.
