Greg Trembath answers your real estate questions.
Q Greg, I am looking for an agent in Port Macquarie to sell an investment property. What makes your agency different? I’ve noticed you sell a lot of property and I’m interested in finding out more about your set commission – how does it work, and how can you be so much less than other real estate agents? Cameron, Brisbane.
A. Cameron, our approach to providing the best value for money real estate service is built on lower fees, efficient practices and making sure property owners receive a great selling experience.
One of our primary aims is for sellers to retain the most amount of money, in their own bank accounts, at the end of the sale process.
For us, this is made possible in a couple of ways – firstly, by avoiding the high overheads that franchise agents have, and passing the savings on to people like you.
Our great value low set commission is possible because we operate a modern, cost-effective business that takes full advantage of our expertise and our extensive buyer database. Our targeted marketing finds buyers quickly.
As I’m sure you can imagine, the internet has completely changed the way property is bought and sold. Today’s buyers predominantly search for property online, as opposed to the old way of looking in the real estate office window.
A progressive agency no longer needs a main street presence; those that have them are paying high costs, and need to charge a premium to cover the cost.
At Greg Trembath Real Estate, we also pride ourselves on our ability to take the stress out of the process. Together with Kim, Yvonne and Michelle, our agency team is dynamic and highly efficient; we’re like a “well-oiled machine”, as that saying goes.
As pioneers of the set commission concept, we have helped save Port Macquarie owners thousands of dollars. We’d be happy to do the same for you, Cameron, when the time is right. Please feel free to give me a call.
