1% commission
FOR 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015


According to a survey, 91% of Kiwis think it's time for a change in real estate - we agree.

While some new companies think that reducing the commission rate to 2.95% is lowering fees, we at Total Realty believe that the appropriate rate to sell your home is 1%.

"Our table shows that Total Realty has the lowest fees of the Christchurch real estate firms." - Consumer August 2011

Lowest Commission Rate Total Service Total Performance
While many companies will stick to their 3.95% commission rate and others try to negotiate theirs down to 2.95%, Total Realty have always set their rate at 1%. Total Realty offer the same full service that every real estate agency offers. We place your property online and in the print media. We believe in the 1% model and have a lot to prove. But don't just take our word for it, read the testimonials of our clients.

    How do we do it? Total Realty is part of the new real estate movement that believes that "clicks and mortar" are the future. Unlike most larger companies, we don't have expensive offices to maintain, few pencil pushers to support and no franchise fees. These savings are passed on to you.
  • WEBSITE MARKETING - Exposure on all leading real estate websites in New Zealand: 5 in total, including TradeMe, and the Realtor
  • WEBSITE FEATURES - Todays buyers use the Internet as their primary source for choosing property. In fact, latest surveys show that 87% of buyers look at the Internet first, and why wouldn't they with the wealth of information available and the ability to select from the entire stock of properties available.
    In recognition of this, Wendy and Marc will have your property "featured" at the top of all searches made in your area. Featured properties consistantly get better viewing results. Click here for more information and comparisons.
  • PRINTED MEDIA MARKETING - Full Colour Advertising in the Realtor real estate magazine, Christchurch's most popular and effective print media for selling your home (as shown in the independent survey conducted by Lincoln University)
  • PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHY - by Graphics to Go. First impressions count, so we ensure that every property we list is shown in the best possible light. Don't let a salesperson with a polaroid attempt to do the job of the professionals.

    The photo's are awesome thanks! They have come up really sharp. Looks good on the website too :) Jo

    The agent that lists your property and knows your property best is the one that shows your property to prospective purchasers, not a "buyers agent" that has never seen your property before..
