NZFarms.co.nz partners with Interest.co.nz

Posted on: June 13th, 2013 | Filed in Company News, Regional News, Website news

To ensure that your farm listings reach even more people, NZfarms.co.nz has recently partnered with popular news site interest.co.nz to display farming listings on a new Farms for Sale section within their site.

The new section appears on interest.co.nz within their rural news section.

Paul McKenzie, Marketing Manager of NZfarms.co.nz says, “This alliance is great news for New Zealand’s real estate farming agents; now together with interest.co.nz we can promote our listings to even more people.”

This is a great new way that we can ensure that your properties get more viewed by more people who are interested in Farming. It will also boost the public profile and awareness of NZfarms.co.nz

We are very excited by this development as a further means for NZfarms.co.nz to provide increased profile and advertising for our customers’ listings.

How it works: Interest.co.nz uses the API of Realestate.co.nz listings to populate their website. These include all the content of the listings including photos, description as well as agent contact details. By using the API the listings on Interest.co.nz are synchronised with Realestate.co.nz, so new listings and withdrawn listings are updated at the same time.

Keep an eye on this space. In the future we will be looking to feed other property types (such as Lifestyle homes, and commercial properties) to key partners within both NZ & Overseas.

NZFarms is a specialist website presenting the most comprehensive selection of farms and agricultural businesses on the market across NZ. At this time it features around 3,000 listings for all types of farms and agricultural land as well as over 10,000 lifestyle properties.

Changes at Realestate.co.nz

Posted on: September 3rd, 2012 | Filed in Company News

Fairfax Moresby, Chairman of Realestate.co.nz, New Zealand’s leading property portal, announced today the departure of Alistair Helm, the Chief Executive Officer of Realestate.co.nz.

In making this announcement Mr Moresby acknowledged the significant part Mr Helm has played in the growth story of Realestate.co.nz, which Mr Helm was instrumental in developing, and thanked him for his important contribution since its establishment.

“Since establishment in 2005 the site has consistently grown both its traffic and market share to hold a very clear position as the most comprehensive website for real estate in New Zealand.  It is used by over 1,000 real estate offices to showcase their listings with a total viewing audience of over 400,000 unique visitors each month from within New Zealand and overseas as well as over 100,000 a month on the mobile platform. Alistair’s role in making the business what it is today has been significant.”

Mr Helm is leaving as a consequence of management restructure. As both the business itself, and online marketplace have matured, the Board sees now as the appropriate time to review both operational structure and resourcing of the company as it charts its new future.

The Board and shareholders are excited by the next stage for the company. The restructure will ensure that both the selling and buying public, and real estate industry, continue to have access to the very best online marketing available.
