Welcome to the website of Team Marc and Wendy

Clients of Marc and Wendy would best describe them as “friendly - yet professional”, knowledgable and passionate. They offer a level of service that has kept them at the top of the real estate industry in Christchurch, with a majority of their listings coming from past clients and referrals.

With a combined experience of over 30 years selling real estate they have developed the skills and sound strategies necessary to get the best for their clients. Having had the opportunity to work with a company that charges 4% commission, they are in the position to say that the service they now provide at a 1% commission rate is identical. Total Realty may cut commission but we do not cut our service.

Marc and Wendy are the local Halswell specialists, an area in which they are the dominant real estate agents. 

With over $400 million in sales, Marc and Wendy have the experience necessary to assist any home owner with the sale of their property.

Choose Total Realty because we are the best, not because we are the cheapest.


"We want to provide our clients with outstanding service for an unbelievably good price. We would like to show you, like we have shown many others, that low commission certainly doesn't mean a cheap job!"

"Our table shows that Total Realty has the lowest fees of the Christchurch real estate firms." - Consumer August 2011

While some companies believe that reducing the commission rate to 2.95 % is lowering fees, we at Total Realty believe that the appropriate rate to sell your home is 1 %.

The service we provide is as good as you would expect from any full service real estate company. Despite our low commission rate we don't cut any corners. Our testimonials speak for themselves.

Our “Total Package”
  • EXPERIENCE - Outstanding agents equipped with excellent market knowledge, latest technology, negotiation skills and marketing strategies.
  • LOW COMMISSION - A fantastic commission rate - Don’t pay more than you should!
    How do we do it? Total Realty is part of the new real estate movement that believes in using technology to reduce the high overheads.
    Unlike most larger companies, we don't have expensive offices to maintain, few pencil pushers to support and no franchise fees. These savings are passed on to you.
  • WEBSITE MARKETING - Exposure on all leading real estate websites in New Zealand: 5 in total, including TradeMe, Realestate.co.nz and the Realtor
  • WEBSITE FEATURES - Todays buyers use the Internet as their primary source for choosing property. In fact, latest surveys show that 87% of buyers look at the Internet first, and why wouldn't they with the wealth of information available and the ability to select from the entire stock of properties available.
    In recognition of this, Wendy and Marc will have your property "featured" at the top of all searches made in your area. Featured properties consistantly get better viewing results. Click here for more information and comparisons.
  • PRINTED MEDIA MARKETING - Full Colour Advertising in the Realtor real estate magazine, Christchurch's most popular and effective print media for selling your home (as shown in the independent survey conducted by Lincoln University)
  • PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHY - by Graphics to Go. First impressions count, so we ensure that every property we list is shown in the best possible light. Don't let a salesperson with a polaroid attempt to do the job of the professionals.

    I’ve checked the ad on-line at your site – the slide show is great and the images are fabulous. The light is sooo good – gosh you’ve got an excellent photographer. I think he’s done a wonderful job. Just hope others think so too!:) Many thanks, Diane

    The photo's are awesome thanks! They have come up really sharp. Looks good on the website too :) Jo

    The agent that lists your property and knows your property best is the one that shows your property to prospective purchasers, not a "buyers agent" that has never seen your property before..
