Value for money real estate service
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.
