Arizto is Here to Disrupt the Traditional Real Estate Model

22 May 2018

An honest real estate agent was like a politician with nothing to hide–until now! Arizto is a 100% New Zealand owned and operated real estate agency set to launch on 28th May, built on the values of transparency, efficiency, and impartiality. We aim to change the common perspective of the real estate industry by providing straightforward, quality services that Kiwis can trust. Our innovative approach comes in the form of a flat fee of $10,000+GST, which includes professional marketing, a local real estate agent, and 24/7 access to our state of the art technologies.


Starting an Industry Revolution

Given the average house price in Auckland, most traditional agencies are charging between $30,000-$40,000 per house. It comes as no surprise that home sellers are unhappy with these high commissions, and we agree it’s archaic and unnecessary. That’s why Arizto was born. We found flaws in the way traditional real estate is performed, and we wanted to create a better solution for Kiwis. 

Collaborating with skilled developers, we’ve created a more attractive option for both home sellers and real estate agents. Our user-friendly, online interface helps us cut down on margins such as multiple physical offices throughout the country, so we’re able to work smarter and pass on these cost savings to home sellers. By forming an in-house team of specialists, we’ve also taken a lot of pressure off our agents, so they only have to focus on what they’re best at–selling houses.

The Arizto Interface

Our internal app and consumer facing website have been designed by local experts Little Giant, who were awarded 2017 New Zealand Digital Agency of the Year. The app is built on React Native and the website is built predominantly on React. In addition to the mobile app and website, we have a seller dashboard that allows our clients to view analytics and feedback on their properties in real time. This backend administrative CMS is also built on the New Zealand based platform, Silverstripe.

Home sellers are able to to track progress in real-time from the comfort of their own home, and once the sale is completed, they are encouraged to use the 5 star rating system to rate their agent and the overall experience. All ratings, reviews and testimonials are left open for the public to see, so our agents are incentivized to deliver the best results, and home sellers can sign up knowing they're getting the best services.

Our Sustainable Business Model

So how does Arizto work? Sellers pay an initial $2,500, which gets them professional indoor, outdoor and aerial photography, HD videography, a unique property description written by an in-house copywriter, and a detailed, architectural floor plan. Legal paperwork such as a LIM report, meth test and rental appraisal are also included, and the property will be marked with its very own Arizto signboard. 

Properties will be listed on Trade Me as a premium feature,, our own website, and receive paid Facebook advertising–we have the country’s largest open database, so our clients’ properties receive maximum exposure. Once the sale is completed, the seller makes the final payment of $5,000. We also have finance options available.

We’re launching next week but in the meantime, like us on Facebook and Instagram to stay in the loop, or book a free appraisal today to get the ball rolling. We’re shaking things up with our innovative 'Uber of real estate' platform, and we’d love for you to come along for the ride!
