New site pairs home owners and real estate professionals
Posted on 31-Aug-2017 19:39 | Tags Filed under: News

A new platform that matches home buyers and sellers with trusted agents in their area is entering the real estate market in New Zealand.


The website RealEstatePros, set up by two brothers, Cam and Nate Whitaker, who are also behind a moving company comparison site, MovingPros, aims to help vendors and buyers connect with trusted agents in their area.


RealEstatePros makes the task of finding and comparing real estate agents in your area simple.


Co-founders Cam and Nate Whitaker launched the platform with one goal in mind — to create more transparency and convenience in the industry by connecting vendors and buyers with trusted, local agents.


With over 14,600 individual real estate license holders in New Zealand according to The Real Estate Agents Authority (REAA), vendors struggle with the task of choosing someone they can trust to look after them as well as their property.


RealEstatePros is committed to connecting sellers to the agent that is the best fit for their needs, which can be determined by quickly comparing profiles of relevant agents and reading verified homeowner reviews.


“Our platform is guided by the philosophy of creating more transparency in the real estate industry and placing more power into the hands of buyers and sellers by allowing them to rate and review agents on the platform. The aim is to help vendors make better-informed decisions when choosing the right agent for them, based on recent reviews from actual clients”, says co-founder Nate Whitaker.


The process is easy — consumers enter their requirements and get matched with up to 3 local, trusted real estate agents that can help. They can then compare their profiles and reviews, and select the best agent for their needs.


“We understand real estate is a people business and relies fundamentally on referrals and trust. We want people to choose an agent based on verified reviews from their actual clients and not just sales data which can be misleading. This is largely how the industry works offline so we want to help translate that “word of mouth” element into the online world,” Nate says.


The two brothers, “entrepreneurial best friends,” who also run a successful digital marketing company, put considerable emphasis on quality control so as to meet the highest possible consumer standards.


“We are completely independent, not agents ourselves and don’t have any referral agreements with agents who use our platform. We simply provide the platform to help vendors find and compare agents and the best agents stand out and build their own brands”, Nate says.


Buying and selling a home can be a very stressful event if you don’t select the right real estate agent. The wrong agent could make errors that would prevent the vendor from getting the best price for their home, or delay the process of selling their home, amongst other headaches.


Not only does RealEstatePros assist Kiwis with their buying and selling needs, it also helps trustworthy real estate agents receive the recognition and exposure that they deserve. Remember, the most visible agents in the neighbourhood based on mailbox flyers or for sale signs may not necessarily be the best fit for a vendor.


Anyone who needs to buy or sell a home is urged by the brothers to ‘compare real estate agents before you take the next step’ – have a look at RealEstatePros and how simple the website is to use, and what it can do for you.
