"The commissions are much lower"
I have worked with Sam Cole from Anreps for about 10 years when I have wanted to sell my homes and investment properties. The Anreps model allows me to open my home and talk to prospective buyers answering all their questions on the spot. The commissions are much lower than regular real estate agents because the Anreps agent does what they do best, preparing legal documents, communicating regularly and negotiating the sale price, while I do what I do best, talking to buyers about my home. I have generally achieved sales at around or just below asking price which seems to be typical of the South Australian market. I end up with more money at settlement though because the agent commission is lower and advertising and other costs are also lower. If you are comfortable talking to people in your own home I would highly recommend using the services of Anreps.

Sold after 3 weeks
Over the last forty years I have sold several houses and each time I have come away from the experience feeling cheated. I have felt that the agents were acting in their own interests and not mine and that their commission was out of proportion to the work they put in selling my property.
However, all that changed with my last sale. I chose ANREPS because, of all the market valuations I received it was the only one which, I felt, was realistic and not driven by some hidden agenda to sell too cheaply or set the price way above market value. My house in Balhannah sold after three weeks, I saved myself more than $10,000.00 in commission and Sam Cole couldn't have been more helpful and supportive throughout the whole process.
It has been a pleasure to do business with ANREPS and I would never consider selling property with any other real estate company. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone who wants to save money and wants to feel like they have been treated fairly and honestly when selling their property.

It was a great pleasure
It was a great pleasure to have Anreps sell our home. They made it stress free experience and kept us informed every step of the way. We would recommend Anreps to anyone who wishes to sell their home.

We are both so pleased
Just a little note to say "thank you" for all your help in helping us sell our own home. I had heard your Anreps ad on the radio so many times and thought what a good idea, I said to Norm if we ever move to another home I want to sell our house ourselves. So when that time came I had no hesitation in ringing you for an appointment and was very impressed with your fees and the help that you provide.
You came along and took all the photo’s, had someone do a floor plan, you made up the signage and listed it on the internet. I must say it all looked very professional. We were so excited about our first open we actually opened before the time stated, as we had so many cars driving up and down our street. We only had the two open days and it was sold.
We are both so pleased that we went with Anreps as we saved so much on commission by doing the opens ourselves and enjoyed meeting potential buyers and displaying our home to them. As the old saying goes “Who knows their home better than the people who call it home”. After all we were very proud of our home.

A great alternative to the traditional real estate agents
"We have recently sold a house through ANREPS in Lockleys and it sold on the first open inspection week-end for more than we expected. The service was highly professional and effective. ANREPS are a great alternative to the traditional real estate agents. All you have to do is open your house for inspection. With everything else, ANREPS supports you the way traditional real estate agent would. People who come to the open inspection appreciate meeting you as the owner because you can usually tell them a whole lot more than any real estate agent could."

My House sold after the first open inspection
“Using Anreps to sell my home was as easy as picking up the phone and allowed me to save $’000’s in commission.
They are a very pleasant team to deal with, have much the same knowledge and experience as other real estate agents and should be considered as an alternative
especially if you want to save money…and who doesn’t. Oh and my house sold after the first open inspection.”
We couldn't believe how easy the process was to sell our property with Anreps. We saved about $5,500 in commission selling with Anreps, we got a quick sale, plus they were so efficient, so for all these reasons we are very thankful!

Very happy with the result
I was thrilled with the way Anreps guided me through a personalised and appropriate campaign for the sale of my property. Not only that but we accepted an offer within a week of the first open. Very happy with the result and highly recommend the Anreps approach. You pay so much less, conduct your own opens and they handle the rest.

Thank you for all your efforts
A big thank you for all the efforts you put in the sale of our house. We would have no hesitation to recommend you to others.

High level of commitment and professionalism
"Sam Cole and the Anreps team were outstanding.
When we decided to put our property on the market, we wanted to maximise our return without sacrificing quality in the marketing.
In the lead up to choosing Anreps, we attended many open inspections in our area and were consistently disappointed with the local "professional" agents - we kept saying...."we could do a better job running an open inspection". We did however know our limitations and needed some assistance in the marketing of the home and the negotiation with potential buyers.
And so we did some research and came across the Anreps "Smart Sale" way of selling. This product represented extremely good value for money (our overall net costs were less than 30% of a normal commissioned agent's), with the added benefit of allowing us to run the "opens" and yet drawing on the Anreps market exposure as well as the negotiating expertise of Sam Cole and his team.
One could be led to believe that a cheaper option would mean an inferior product. This certainly wasn't the case with Anreps. Sam Cole worked exceedingly hard for us with a high level of commitment and professionalism - it was as if he were selling his own home the whole way through! Not only this, Sam and his staff are a pleasure to deal with and extremely patient with their clients!
If we sell in the future, we won't hesitate to use Anreps again. We will also continue to recommend their services at every opportunity - this testimonial being just one way we can do this.
Thank you to Sam and the Anreps team.
