What We Do …

kerryleaharrisonrealestateWe’re down-to-earth straight talkers in today’s real estate market.

Having started our real estate careers in 2001, our experience is vast and varied.  We’ve owned our own boutique agency and we’ve also worked for other agencies and big companies over the years.  This time, the one thing we decided we wanted to do was to improve on a few areas that we knew was often discussed when we met with sellers.  

We also joined forces with FLP Real Estate as they’re a great agency that embraces the same values that we do.  By the way, FLP stands for Friendly Local People and that’s exactly what we’re all about!

Fair Commission Rates

Real estate commissions are now deregulated.  It was:  5% of the first $18,000 plus 2% of the balance of sale price plus GST.

Nowadays, agents are now free to charge whatever they like, and they do from 2.5% to as high as 3.5% and more.

In 2017, the average Brisbane house price is closer to $600,000.  While in Ipswich the average house price is $360,000.  However, agents are still charging 2.5% plus.

That’s a major rise in agent fees and as high as 400% in some areas.

Is it harder to sell a property now? … Nope – in fact, it’s easier today, because we have the internet and sites like realestate.com.au domain.com.au … plus social media.

Reality is that most of the 2.5% that you pay to an agent to sell your property goes back into maintaining the agency’s overheads, the premium offices, those beautiful luxury vehicles.  We know, we’ve had the boutique office and the beautiful BMW’s.   

We’d like to break this trend of ever-increasing agent fees. By avoiding unnecessary expenses and focusing our efforts on delivering better results for our clients, we can pass on lower fees and ultimately put more money back into your pocket when you sell.

 

High Quality, Appropriate Marketing

Quality marketing is absolutely important when it comes to marketing a property. However, agents are often quick to promote high-end, expensive marketing packages to vendors regardless of whether not the package fits the property and the area.

We take extra care to ensure that the marketing strategy we use is a perfect fit for the property being sold.

No Upfront Fees

When most people list their property for sale, they generally don’t think about what would happen if it doesn’t sell, or if they end up changing agents.  There’s nothing wrong with that, it’s only natural to have an optimistic outlook when it comes to selling your property.

But time and time again we see vendors who have paid thousands in marketing that then expired because their property didn’t sell as quickly as they expected.

With AgentsDK, there are no upfront costs, and we cover all marketing fees. – Limited Time Only.

Which means you can give your property the best possible chance at getting an exceptional price, without any financial risk whatsoever.  

With everything to gain and nothing to lose – selling with Darryn and Kerrylea is a much less stressful experience!  Our only condition is that you list with us exclusively.

If you’re thinking of selling, we’d love to talk to you about your property.
