New ‘normal’ for real estate: Ray White


The face of real estate is undergoing a considerable change due to Covid-19 restrictions. Marijke Sheppard of Ray White Rangiora says, “It’s more important than ever before that buyers and sellers do their homework well in advance”.

 

 

“They should build a good relationship with their mortgage broker or bank, seek out an agent who is innovative, tech savvy and works for a company that has a vast range of technological features to draw from, is innovative in the platforms they use and leads from the front.”

With face-to-face restrictions, spatial distancing, the demand for digitalising of documents and the ‘new norm’ of private viewings with no open homes, people need to do their homework thoroughly before they even step onto the property.

Strict protocols are in place to ensure the safety of all. Gone will be the ability to open doors and cupboards freely, stay as long as you like or attend multiple open homes.

This is the time for a comprehensive checklist. “Without the luxury of that half hour or more to wander around a house, a checklist is imperative!” Marijke says.

“Buyers need to look at their own homes, note what makes it work, what doesn’t, what is a must in their new home and what they can compromise on.

“The buyer that is prepared will be in a strong position to take advantage of this challenging period in our history and secure their future with a solid investment in a property.”

A passion for real estate: Ray White Rangiora


Just as no two homes are identical, real estate agents also come in their own unique package.

 

 

Now a team of three, Marijke Sheppard and PA Nicola Stokes have welcomed Amy Sheppard to the team. Amy joins Marijke as a salesperson for Ray White Rangiora after six years as a website designer and developer, bringing with her a degree in Visual Communication, which Marijke says is ideal in this ever-changing world.

Although new to the industry, Amy has a serious passion for the North Canterbury area and her strong work ethic, coupled with her social media and marketing skills, make her a valuable member of this dynamic real estate team, adding another dimension to the group.

The team endeavours to provide the very best service they can. With Marijke’s experience, the team’s attention to detail, plus the diverse collective skillset they offer, this team provides a professional 10/10 experience for all clients, from the very first point of contact to the final sign off.

“It is important that we, as sales professionals, are knowledgeable, up to date, well-informed and can be trusted to communicate effectively to our clients,” Marijke says. “Our goal is to ensure that all of our clients get the very best,” she adds.
