We charge a lower price than other agents so we let our vendors keep more of the value of their property.
There is only two ways this can go. You either can't offer the same services as other agents or you never grow and can't attract the best talent.

Fair enough. We think paying several thousand Euro to sell a property is illogical. But that's what makes a market. Differences of opinion. I don't think any of our posts were "bizarre" though in fairness. We engaged meaningfully in the discussion. So we respectfully disagree with you paying SF et al so much.
We think we will ultimately become the main agent...but we would say that of course.

I would politely encourage you to search for "auctioneera reviews" on google to see the opinion of those who have used our service to date. We think the market will ultimately eschew the high priced agencies in favour of ourselves. But of course we respect your different opinion. The market will ultimately decide.

You don't have a new business model. It's been tried and tested the world over, and there's a reason fees in the states remain a whopping 5-6% while in Ireland they are a measly .75-1.75%. you really do get what you pay for IMO.

It's not all about cost. Is all you grocery shopping from a retailers own brand because it's cheap?

192 properties listed as sold, 96 Google reviews, that's some hit rate for reviews, congrats.

It’s like an estate agent with a Conor McGregor type persona.

Does anyone remember privateseller.ie?

I can't get over auctioneras condescending and patronizing tone. It's a train wreck since they decided to join this thread😂.

Can they be removed for their own good and the good of the forum. Sick of reading them in every second post.

At the anxiety stage. Prices have a lot to drop yet.

There's an entire "market completely frozen" point missing on that chart!
