WHAT SETS US APART
FROM THE COMPETITION
We’re small-scale, independent and expert in what we do. We work with only a few clients at a time and operate so efficiently we can offer a premium service at a very fair fee. With long-standing family and business connections in the Far North, we know what makes our part of Aotearoa special. No other agency based in the Bay of Islands offers our unique combination of international property, marketing and commercial experience, local knowledge, technology, professionalism and 2% fee.*
Premium service at a fair price.
OUR COMMITMENT TO YOU
“OUR AGENCY AND ADVISORY FOCUS IS ON PROVIDING A PREMIUM SERVICE AND RESULT AT A VERY FAIR PRICE.”
We are a team of highly motivated, top performing property, marketing and business professionals committed to doing things better. As a small-scale independent agency your business means more to us and our focus is on results, not the number of listings. Selling real estate or a business involves making important decisions and can be 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 possible in selling your property or going concern business — whether large, small or challenging.
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 real estate and business agency sectors are undergoing rapid change and this disruption is creating both challenge and opportunity. Industry regulations and compliance are requiring all agencies in New Zealand to significantly upgrade their technology and systems. At the same time there is increasing consumer pushback to the very high commission fees traditionally charged by agencies. 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 full range of real estate agency and advisory services — including residential, rural lifestyle, horticulture, farming, commercial, tourism, going concern and special project categories.
YOUR TRUSTED ADVISOR
“WHEN YOU CHOOSE US AS YOUR TRUSTED ADVISOR, YOU ARE MAKING AN INVESTMENT IN EXPERIENCE, SKILL, INTEGRITY AND PROFESSIONALISM…”
It doesn’t matter what the brand is, how big the firm is, or how many branches or agents the firm has access to. A brand is not going to sell your hard-earned property asset or business. It is the experience and skill of the person doing the work, together with adequate time allocation and attention to detail, that will achieve the best outcome. Although we provide a premium agency and advisory service you will pay a lot less with us. When you choose Coastal & Country as your trusted advisor, you gain access to our property, marketing and commercial experience, skills, integrity and professionalism — as well as accessing the best in marketing technology and distribution channels.
“WE KNOW FROM EXPERIENCE THAT WEB BASED MARKETING IS THE MOST COST EFFECTIVE FORM OF PROPERTY MARKETING.”
We have access to all of the recognised Internet property and business listing portals, digital media tools and print media publications as other agencies. 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 (at the client’s expense). We utilise the two largest property and business listing websites in New Zealand — together with other specialist websites and social media platforms where appropriate based on the nature of the property or 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. In addition, we are members of the Real Estate Institute of New Zealand Inc. and, as we will proactively collaborate with any member agency, this gives us a potential network of about 15,000 licensed agents throughout New Zealand who may know of a buyer for your property or business.
