Keeping you safe in the Traffic Light System.

Keeping our sellers, buyers and team safe during the Covid traffic light system is extremely important to us. We are following real estate industry guidelines and as professionals operating within the protection framework like all other industries, we have a legal and moral obligation to implement the rules. 

Under the current Traffic Light System the limitations around appraisals and open homes is less. Here’s a few key things you need to know.

Appraisals - now is a great time to get your property valued or listed

Vaccine passes are no longer required. If you have underlying health concerns or are not comfortable with having a fully vaccinated salesperson come into your home our sales team will work with you to do a comprehensive online review of your property. We have delivered over thousands digital appraisals over the lockdown period - rest assured we can provide a service to suit your needs. When you choose to list, we have a completely contactless admin process to ensure you stay safe.

Open Homes

As restrictions are easing here is what is now required under the Government guidelines:

  • My vaccine pass is no longer required
  • There is a limit of 200 people allowed in an open home
  • Face covering are strongly encouraged for all people onsite

Buying a property

If you are eager to buy a property under the Traffic Light System then this will not stop you from carrying out purchaser due diligence or pre-settlement inspections. The same requirements apply to those listed above. Please liaise with our sales team to learn more.

If you buy a home, congratulations! The good news is that settlement and moving can all occur under the Traffic Light System - this includes those moving between regions if it’s a permanent relocation of home or business.


We are able to hold in-room auctions at our Takapuna auction and the Sapphire Room, Ponsonby Central from Wednesday 4th May. Auctions are still running until this - they are just online. My Vaccine Pass will no longer be needed to attend but mask-wearing is required. If you are not able to be in the room due to health concerns you are able to view and bid at auction via our online platform or over the phone with the assistance of one of our salespeople.

We are on hand to help 

We know that safely navigating the Traffic Light levels can be tricky. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch to learn more about how we can help you take advantage of the current market, register for an online appraisal or if you require advice and support as you look to purchase property.
