Tall Poppy in Top 3 Large Kiwi Real Estate Agencies

6 September, 2019

Tall Poppy has been recognised by the Real Estate Institute of New Zealand (REINZ) as one of the best large agencies in New Zealand.

Each year the real estate industry gathers at the REINZ Awards for Excellence, where the best and brightest are acknowledged for their achievements.  This year, Tall Poppy was a finalist in the Large Real Estate Agency Category (all disciplines).

Sam McIntyre, Co-Owner of Tall Poppy, says he’s incredibly proud of the business being a finalist, alongside agencies who have been operating in New Zealand for more than 100 years.

“We’re only approaching our seventh birthday - but are now recognised as peers, alongside large established companies like Barfoot & Thompson who have been selling real estate for more than a century.

“Reaching this level in the awards indicates the rapid growth we’re experiencing – expanding from a single agency on the Kapiti Coast to now being a national (and expanding) brand.

“When we first set out in 2012 to offer fairer real estate fees to Kiwis, we wanted to earn the trust of New Zealanders, and be known as an agency delivering outstanding service, using the best tech available. I’m so proud of the effort our team goes to each day to live up to these values, and deliver for their clients,” says Sam McIntyre.

Bindi Norwell, CEO of REINZ, says being a finalist is something Tall Poppy can be proud of.

“Thank you for helping to raise the bar of the real estate profession and for all your hard work,” says Bindi Norwell.

Sam McIntyre says being in the top three for large agencies reflects the commitment and energy of Tall Poppy’s talented team, featuring some of the best in the business.

“Each day, our franchisees and their teams work tirelessly to provide fairer real estate to Kiwis and provide exceptional service.  We’re excited about the future. Building on our recent growth, are working to have Tall Poppy available in all regions in the country by the end of 2020”.
