Value for money real es­tate ser­vice

Southern Real Estate Guide - - PROFILE -

Pro­gres­sive, in­no­va­tive, a leader in the in­dus­try – th­ese are words of­ten used to de­scribe Mo­bile Real Es­tate.

But when David and Karen Slaugh­ter founded this South Auck­land com­pany in 1999, they weren’t look­ing at such su­perla­tives; they just wanted to bring to­gether a team with high ethics, an in­tel­li­gent un­der­stand­ing of their clients’ needs, and the pro­fes­sional edge.

Nearly eight years later, David and Karen can look back in sat­is­fac­tion. “ Mo­bile Real Es­tate has grown to be­come a cus­tomer- cen­tric com­pany. We are a to­tal so­lu­tions team that pro­vides top-notch ser­vice to our clients,” says David, who tested the real es­tate wa­ters in 1989.

Their of­fice at 26a Beach Rd, Pa­pakura may look like any sub­ur­ban prop­erty but it’s linked in real-time to the homes of all the agents.

This en­ables agents to work from home and give more time to their clients. That’s har­ness­ing the power of tech­nol­ogy for you.

The com­pany’s big­gest strength is its low fees. Pro­vid­ing all the mar­ket­ing the big­ger com­pa­nies of­fer but at a re­duced fee, Mo­bile prides it­self on be­ing able to of­fer its ser­vices at 2.95 per cent + GST, a sav­ing of over 30 per cent com­pared with typ­i­cal real es­tate fees, while at the same time pro­vid­ing all the ser­vices re­quired to bring about a suc­cess­ful sale.

Also if the sticker price is $ 400,000 or more, you pay a flat fee of just $12,950. As an il­lus­tra­tion, if you are sell­ing a home for $ 600,000 you save a cool $ 8225 over the av­er­age bro­ker­age in Pa­pakura.

But what makes all the dif­fer­ence in a com­plex and con­fus­ing mar­ket is their team of spe­cial­ists who have the ex­per­tise to pro­vide a full range of ser­vices. With a rep­u­ta­tion for re­li­a­bil­ity and in­tegrity, you can rest as­sured your in­ter­ests take pri­or­ity in their scheme of things.

Dianne Cart­mer and Dean Ar­mitage: Call them the Mahia Park spe­cial­ists. Dianne has been a familiar friendly face in the area for the past 12 years. Dean, who has a bank­ing back­ground, brings to the ta­ble tech­nol­ogy and peo­ple skills that com­ple­ment Dianne’s con­sid­er­able real es­tate tal­ents.

Michael Turner, John Slaugh­ter, Karen and David: The Pa­pakura pro­fes­sion­als. Michael has 13 years ex­pe­ri­ence in the busi­ness, has a wealth of lo­cal knowl­edge, which makes him a con­sum- mate real es­tate net­worker.

“ We look at peo­ple with high in­tegrity and val­ues, and Michael rep­re­sents that breed,” says David.

John, who joined the sales team two and half years ago, is study­ing for his li­cence, and is keen to con­tinue the Mo­bile tra­di­tion of pro­vid­ing top qual­ity ser­vice. He has ex­cel­lent tech­ni­cal, com­mu­ni­ca­tion and cus­tomer ser­vice skills.

Karen, the friendly voice be­hind the phone, keeps the back of­fice hum­ming and the ad­min­is­tra­tion side go­ing like clock­work.

Brian Ste­wart, Paul Ste­wart: Brian and Paul are the Ma­nurewa spe­cial­ists. Brian hails from a cor­po­rate back­ground and has plenty of ex­pe­ri­ence in prop­erty man­age­ment and rentals. Paul, a young and en­er­getic ‘sports nut’, as his col­leagues de­scribe him, has all the right con­tacts in the area. He used to work in the trans­porta­tion in­dus­try and knows a lot of peo­ple through that too.

David adds that a con­sid­er­able part of the busi­ness is gen­er­ated through re­fer­rals – a clear sign of the trust and faith that clients re­pose in the com­pany.

“Our phi­los­o­phy is sim­ple – when we deal with you, we deal with you as friends,” says David. “ We give you the best ad­vice, and won’t rush you into a deal, so you can max­imise ben­e­fits.”

That clearly is a win-win sit­u­a­tion for ev­ery­body in­volved.
