Why Sell with Us


The Gateway Advantage

Why choose Gateway Real Estate?

(a) Gateway to... dealing with the business owners direct
- Too often when dealing with a real estate agency you don't have a huge choice in who you deal with but at Gateway Real Estate you will always be dealing direct with one of the business owners. This means that you are dealing with decision makers, with people who are looking long term in all of their dealings and who understand intimately the ethos of the business itself.

(b) Gateway to... higher levels of customer service
- A lack of customer service is probably the most common complaint made about real estate agents by clients - particularly in relation to communication. Gateway Real Estate has therefore made this a high priority of the business. They are committed to regular communication with all clients and customers, and are committed to raising the bar on customer service in the real estate industry.

(c) Gateway to... strong local knowledge
-It is absolutely crucial for an agent to know their local market, and you will find this covered well at Gateway Real Estate. Indeed with their long personal history in the Kyogle area both Doug and Tracey Allan are ideally placed to provide extensive local knowledge of not just the local real estate but also the local people living in the area. You are always better placed working with a local.

(d) Gateway to... broad real estate experience
-Both Doug and Tracey are property owners within the Kyogle shire and have been for many years, indeed Doug first bought a property in Kyogle at the age of 19. In addition to this Doug is a fully qualified and licensed real estate agent and has obtained a broad experience in real estate through his time working as a valuer for the NAB and most recently whilst working as a sales consultant for another local real estate agency in the Kyogle area.

(e) Gateway to... extensive internet marketing
-The internet is the most important marketing tool at an agent's disposal; indeed research shows that 90% of buyers will look online before even speaking to a real estate agent. This means that extensive internet advertising is essential. Gateway Real Estate has therefore invested heavily in this medium and advertises all their properties on multiple real estate websites including the two market leaders: REALESTATE.COM.AU and DOMAIN.COM.AU.

(f) Gateway to... successfully utilising social media
-In the last few years online social media has increased exponentially and it is a challenge for businesses to learn how to harness the incredible potential that is here. Unlike many agencies Gateway Real Estate has fully embraced this as a new way of increasing the exposure of client's properties in the market place. Indeed with the network of local people that they have built up through their presence on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn they can immediately market your property to hundreds of potential buyer's exclusive to their agency who may not even have contacted an agent yet. Don't miss out by going somewhere else.

(g) Gateway to... a large, efficiently run buyer database
-Gateway Real Estate utilises a real estate database system called ReNet. This database has a large number of buyers who have registered their details keen on buying in the Kyogle area. This database has been efficiently designed and will instantly email every single buyer whose buying criteria match your property within seconds of listing your property online.

(h) Gateway to... only paying for success
-Gateway Real Estate operates a no sale, no fee service meaning that you will only pay them if they actually sell your property. There is no charge made to a client for listing with them and no requirement to contribute towards marketing costs for our standard marketing package. This means that they are motivated to produce a successful outcome for their clients, which is ultimately what the client is looking for.
