We charge a fixed 1.75% fee for all categories of property we market. It doesn’t matter whether it’s a lifestyle property, a house, a farm, or a commercial building. How can we offer such a fair fee? Simply because we are small-scale, independent and operate a highly cost-effective and state-of-the-art business model. We think our 1.75% fee for a premium service is very fair and if you’re currently paying more you’re paying too much!


Traditional real estate agencies typically charge up to 4% on the first $300,000 to $500,000 of the property sale price and 2% on the balance, plus a $500 admin fee. That's already a very big fee and the nearly 32% increase in property prices in the Far North over the past three years has lifted it even higher in dollar terms — for no extra work. Yet over that same period, the use of technology, availability of property information and marketing tools and Internet use by buyers has increased markedly, making the agent's job easier not harder. Real estate fees need to come down (without compromising service) and we're doing something about it.


Our very fair fixed 1.75% (plus GST) fee covers the sale of all real estate categories — with a minimum fee of $12,000 (plus GST). Agreed marketing expenditure is payable prior to campaign commencement. That's it. Fair and simple.
