Learn about some of our significant assignments & project work.
WHAT SETS US APART?
We’re small-scale, independent and very good at what we do. We work with only a few clients at a time and operate from a lean virtual office — so we can deliver a personalised service at an affordable cost. We operate nationally and will base ourselves wherever needed for the duration of the project or task.
OUR COMMITMENT TO YOU
“OUR BUSINESS FOCUS IS ON PROVIDING THE BEST POSSIBLE SERVICE AND RESULT AT A FAIR COST TO OUR CLIENTS.”
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 sale, a project development, or an acquisition, involves making important decisions. We understand this and are committed to ensuring the process is as straight forward as possible for the stakeholders involved through effective communication, provision of relevant, timely and high quality information and removal of barriers. Our deep experience, knowledge and systems allow us to provide a truly professional service and achieve an optimum result for our clients — regardless of the magnitude or complexity of the task.
WHAT WE BRING TO THE TABLE
“NO OTHER PROPERTY ADVISORY & AGENCY FIRM OFFERS OUR UNIQUE COMBINATION OF EXPERIENCE, TECHNOLOGY, SKILLS, INTEGRITY…& PERFORMANCE FEE STRUCTURE.”
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 by many professionals. Our leading edge systems and virtual office allow us to operate very efficiently at a significantly lower cost. We offer a wide range of property advisory and agency services — including for commercial, horticulture, pastoral farming, coastal lifestyle and tourism categories.
YOUR TRUSTED ADVISOR IS NOT A BRAND
“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. If you want a ‘paint by numbers’ approach you’ll need to choose someone else.
OUR MARKETING APPROACH
“WE KNOW FROM EXPERIENCE THAT WEB BASED PROPERTY & PROJECT MARKETING IS THE MOST COST EFFECTIVE APPROACH FOR OUR CLIENTS.”
We have access to all of the recognised property 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 or project (at the client’s expense). We utilise specialist websites and social media platforms where appropriate based on the nature of the capital asset, 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.
