200 Square Real Estate stuns Industry with Realtor K9-2K

200 Square Real Estate stuns Industry with the Launch of Realtor K9-2K

Wellington, 1 April 2014 - 200 Square - New Zealand’s online real estate agency announces a revolution in real estate with the introduction of Realtor K9-2K. After several years in stealth mode, from today 96 highly trained and motivated Realtor K9-2K’s will be supporting clients selling their homes across New Zealand.

Following on from the success of dogs in the US military 200 Square has for the last 3 years been developing key traits and skills in animals rescued from the SPCA. Realtor K9-2K’s are highly trained to provide the key support and services needed by anyone selling their home. Each Realtor K9-2K wears a specifically designed harness and caring frame that includes an iPad running the revolutionary PAWs software from 200 Square. The Realtor K9-2K has everything the homeowner needs right there.

“The Realtor K9-2K is everything you wish for in a real estate agent” said Grant Wakelin 200 Square’s CEO “with absolute loyalty and obedience, complete lack of self interest, immediate response to commands, and simple barked yes or no answers to questions”. They are incredibly cost effective for clients and rather than paying thousands in commission Realtor K9-2K’s are satisfied with regular meat and the occasional bone.

The animals are not licensed under the Real Estate Agents Act, with Mr Wakelin commenting that “anyone would have a dogs show of proving they are not capable”.

But things have not stopped there. As Wakelin explained “We are continuing to develop and expand the full service offered by Realtor K9-2K” and the 200 Square team are currently training a St Bernard that will carry a barrel of spirits on his collar to revive clients after they see their first offer.

200 Square’s dogged pursuit of fundamental change to the way real estate is sold in New Zealand is reaping great results. Charging a flat commission of only $4,500 upon sale which makes a dogs breakfast of traditional fees - saving the average seller over $15,000 in agent commissions.
