WHAT SETS US APART
FROM THE COMPETITION
With family and business connections going back over 80 years in the Far North, we know what makes our part of Aotearoa so special. No other real estate firm based in the Bay of Islands offers our unique combination of property and marketing experience, local knowledge, technology, skills, integrity and professionalism.
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 FAIR PRICE.”
We are a team of highly motivated, top performing property and marketing professionals committed to doing things better. As a smaller independent agency your business means more to us and our focus is on results, not the number of listings. Selling and buying real estate 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 experience, knowledge and systems allow us to provide a truly professional service and achieve the best result possible in selling your property—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 industry is undergoing rapid change and this disruption is creating both challenge and opportunity. Industry regulations and compliance requires a high reliance on technology and all agencies in New Zealand will have to significantly upgrade their systems and retrain their teams. This is especially demanding for larger and established firms. Our leading edge systems have been specifically designed to perform in this new environment and 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 precious asset or business. It is the person doing the work who will sell your asset or business. Although we provide a premium real estate agency and advisory service it doesn’t mean you have to pay more. In fact we charge our clients less than many full service agencies and we pay our team members a lot more. In this way the person doing the work is appropriately incentivised to work harder for our clients — providing the time and attention both they and their properties deserve. When you choose Coastal & Country as your trusted advisor, you gain access to our property and marketing experience, skills, integrity and professionalism — as well as accessing the best in property marketing technology and channels.
“WE KNOW FROM EXPERIENCE THAT WEB BASED MARKETING IS THE MOST COST EFFECTIVE FORM OF PROPERTY MARKETING FOR OUR CLIENTS.”
We have access to all of the recognised Internet property 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…and at the client’s expense. We utilise the two largest property 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 collaborate with any member agency, this gives us a potential network of some 14,000 licensed real estate agents throughout New Zealand who may know of a buyer for your property.
