No Agent was formed back in 2004 , just as the Internet was becoming the primary tool for searching for just about anything. No Agent where the pioneers of the For Sale By Owner market in South Africa.
No Agent was founded on the basis that the commission charged by most Estate Agencies where extremely high based upon on an international comparative basis. Furthermore the service levels where generally poor and the market needed an alternative.
Over the past 14 years, we have saved our clients many Thousands of Rands in commission (in some cases more than R100 000). We have continually reinvented ourselves with changing market forces, economy and have stuck to our game plan of assisting private sellers, and offering different levels of assistance based upon the seller’s willingness to get involved in various aspects of the selling process.
We didn’t anticipate changing our business model until we were recently (early 2018) approached by a global Property Group. They suggested we expand our offering to incorporate working in tandem with a select few estate agencies that share our view that the commission rates charged in South Africa and exorbitant, and simply unjustifiable. After much deliberation, further research and consultation with our clients we decided to extend our offering and be of service to those that didn’t want to sell their property privately.
