Local Agent Finder
Local Agent Finder only recommend agents who want to pay them a 25% cut of the commission , alot of new agents who cant get a listing use these site so you are not getting the best in an area just the most desperate agent needing a listing and will pay for it. Stay clear
Don't contact them, you will regret it
Initial casual enquiry contact followed up constant badgering. Relentless spam emails despite my numerous attempts to Unsubscribe. Worse than a virus. I have contacted the Ombudsman to report these rogues. Plenty of better options available that will provide an honest service whilst respecting your privacy.
Very helpful in selling our properties
I have contacted OpenAgent for 3 properties we have sold and each time they have provided me with excellent agents. They suggest a few agents and then I talk to them and choose the agent I want to work with. Every agent has been of the highest calibre and have sold all 3 properties, 2 with good results and 1 not so because of the market at the time. Would highly recommend OpenAgent.
what a ride!
This tool was so helpful in choosing an agent to use with local market knowledge. We ended up selling within a week and exceeding our expectations. would definitely recommend OpenAgent
Elizabeth was fast, efficient ands thorough and her suggestions re possible agents to handle the property were spot on. The information she sent through relating to the property helped us feel confident about the sale.
A big problem solved.
I was recommended to 3 agents. I chose one who has overseen the entire project of upgrading the unit for me while I've stuck interstate due to Covid. Can't wait to see the sales result. Very happy with the recommendations. This solved a major problem for me. The whole process was streamlined and things are now under way. Very happy!
Excellent way of finding the best agents to sell your home
Was referred a great Agent who sold my property at a very good price, very proactive and communicative. She constantly kept me up to speed as to what was happening. Open agent has worked twice for me now in different areas, think the service is brilliant.

Badger you beyond belief.
Seriously don’t know where this company get their ethics from. I have sent email after email, txt message after txt message, I’ve spoken to them and yet I still get continually badgered by this company. They call 2-3 times a day and when I answer to ask them again to stop calling the phone disconnects, they force a callback and when you do call back they answer with your name. Deceitful, annoying and unethical - do yourself a favour and DO NOT fill in any forms or
give them your details. They do not respect your privacy and will drive you absolutely crazy.
James is your man
James from open agent was most professional, efficient, had great communication and listening skills and genuinely keen to help. I felt at ease and not stressed in seeking the services of a real estate agent through James from Open Agent. Highly recommend Open Agent for peace of mind and prompt service.
You have to use this company if your looking to sell , they are the best at what they do
The help we received was outstanding , made it so much easier to find the right agent , rather than blindly going around looking for yourself , a must use service , don’t choose an agent before asking open agent first
Text message lied--signed off as Barry Plant. The link in the text message (screenshot attached as "proof" to Product Review opens up the OpenAgent.com.au website). No office address on website. 13,029 like their Facebook page, but has close to no like per post, which might be overseas bots in action. I have never previously used OpenAgent.com.au, which meant that they used unethical methods to obtain my number.
They hooked me up with a top selling agent
I was sceptical at first - once they have your mobile number, they call several times a day until you pick up which is somewhat annoying. That said, they hooked me up with the top 3 performing agents in my area. The first agent was said to move a lot of volume of property and it was pointed out that perhaps it was because they under achieved with price. The second agent was said to have a lot of listings, but that didn't necessarily translate into an actual sale. The last agent had achieved highest price points, which is the agent I went with. ...Working with this agent. I managed to sell my property for an amount well above what I expected. They were very polite and professional and were very upfront that they took 20% of the agent's commission and that most agents were happy to think they were making 80% of something rather than 100% of nothing. I would use this service again.

Needed some expertise to sell our Investment property
Thanks to Open Agent we were provided the key sales people in the area and some insights into each of them to make the selection process easier as we live in another state. Thanks to Open agent as our agent was great and may not have found him without this service. Thanks!
Open Agent for selling a house agent selection
I used Open Agent with the selling of two homes, both homes sold quickly with one for more than I was actually asking, I tried doing this myself and come to open agent after two failed attempts to sell the houses
I didn’t have a clue where to start. Open Agent services have impressed me and I would absolutely recommend them.
Loads of relevant information and assistance from friendly helpful staff.
I live in a different state than the house I want to sell and the help and assistance given to me by Open Agent has been invaluable. Thanks so much.
Fantastic company that delivered great value for my mum and her property
I reached out to Open Agent to help me find a good agent to sell my mother's home. I thought I already knew of some of the top agents in our area but wanted to contact Open Agent to confirm the recommendations I got. I was given the details of an agent that I'd not considered who was actually a top seller in my area. Without these guys I wouldn't have known at all! The agent we chose was courteous, dealt with my mother's situation with sensitivity and grace (moving into aged care), and sold our property for more than we expected in a market where prices have not recovered at all since the correction. I have been very happy and impressed with this company and the service I've received - the consultant I was assigned was fantastic. Thank you!
I looked up Open Agent on the internet to see an approximate value of my home. I then, almost immediately, received a phone call from Open Agent. I was then given 3 agents in my area to deal with the sale of my property. As I have lived in the area for 30 years I knew the agents well. I signed for 3 months with one agent. I was told that Open Agent received a 20% commission from the agent for their recommendation which was quite a surprise. Since then I have delayed the sale of my home as it is not ready for inspections. I phoned Open A...gent and asked what was the length of time that I was committed to them. I was told that during my initial conversation that I had signed up to Open Agent for a two (2) year contract and that they insist that I was told this during my initial phone conversation. There was no information forwarded to me regarding this so called contract. I could not believe what I was being told as I would never ever sign with any real estate agent or related companies for a two (2) year period. The conversation then progressed to me asking for a recording of our conversation which I was told they have. I was refused a copy and was told that they would send me a transcription of the phone conversation. Note - anything could be typed into that transcription. I am sure I was not informed of the 20% commission nor was I told that it was a two (2) year contract with Open Agent. As there was no signed contract nor, as I strongly believe, no information given to me verbally I am left with the only option of requesting this phone conversation via legal means. I am definitely surprised and completely disgusted with the way in which this company operates.
Extremely unprofessional company
I have contacted this company several times to have the online personal information they have on my property removed. Had re forwarded the previous emails each time, stating that I had previously tried to make contact and have still not received a response. They simply just ignore you. On top of all of this. I receive a ridiculous amount of endless spam from them. Would never contemplate on using this company. Just for the record, I had also contacted realestate.com and onthehouse to have online details removed, in which I'd received a quick response and was taken off.
Over 18 months ago open agent gave me 3 agent referrals. Things changed and the property sale left my hands and was undertaken by an estate manager. Open agent have continued to spam me, ignore several written and verbal requests to stop contacting me and just yesterday I was promised over the phone no more contact, low and behold another email from them came less than 2 hrs later.
Also be warned, Open Agent charge a 20% commission to agents for the simple introduction, this reduces your ability to negotiate a good commission with the agent, ...as they must pay 20% to Open Agent. Not every agent wants to share 20% of their commission, so be warned some of the top performing agents wont do business with Open Agent. Rate my agent dont charge commissions, and would appear to me a better choice.
Provided good service and a good selection of professional agents
I used OpenAgent to find some good local agents. Due to issues with getting tenants out and then renovation it was a longer period than I expected before I could list. All referred agents followed up with me regularly without being on my back.
Happy to recommend OpenAgent to find a good agent.
Questions & Answers
Why do you ignore simple questions that should be answered? I have emailed 3 times over a 6 week period and on each occasions received the same automated response stating that I would be contacted within 48 hours.
The question remains unanswered. "What benefit does your service offer to new agents who do not have a significant number of sales?"
What lies behind this question is also the unstated fact that sales figures are very easy to manipulate which they do not seem to care about!
Hi Mike, we’d be happy to help. If you’re able to let us know the email address you sent from, we can look into why you didn’t receive a reply. To briefly reply to your question, vendors value agents who have had strong sales experience in their local area, and so the number of local sales is a key factor in recommending agents. However, we also look at the proximity of your sold properties to the vendor’s property and also property type, as well as your client reviews. So even as a newer agent you can receive leads from OpenAgent in your area. We’d be happy to discuss further at your convenience, please contact us at email@example.com.
