Selling your property in the Cook Islands requires solid contacts and a database of eager buyers. At Jeff Tikitau Real Estate we can offer both, plus more…

Extensive local knowledge

Our extensive local knowledge sets us apart from other real estate agents. We are very familiar with the complexities of our lease tenure, foreign investment criteria, and legal sale & purchase process. We also have extensive local market knowledge because we live in Rarotonga, which puts us in the best position to share personal insight into property matters with prospective buyers and sellers. Born and raised on Rarotonga, Jeff is of Cook Islands/Tahitian ancestry and is a descendent from the families of the royal dynasties of both Cook Islands and French Polynesia. Having spent many years living in Tahiti and NZ, Jeff has rich local knowledge of his homeland and is passionate about the Cook Islands and Polynesian culture. Having moved around the South Pacific and more recently from France for over 15+ years, Jeff and Natalie know first-hand what is involved in the relocation process.

Locally-owned Cook Islands company with strong links

Because we are a local Cook Islands company, we have strong links in the local Cook Islands community, and strong brand awareness - all to your advantage. Jeff works closely with landowners and is extremely well-connected in the business community. We are in touch with reputable solicitors, accountants, builders, surveyors and valuers who can assist & offer priority service to both buyers in completing their full due diligence and sellers as needed. Jeff is also a landowner himself and has a family heritage that runs deep and extends to many families living here. This can make all the difference when it comes to dealings with our Cook Island landowners, property owners and local business community, whether in English or in Cook Islands Maori. Jeff speaks both languages, along with French, having spent many years living in Rarotonga and abroad.

Real Estate Agents based in Rarotonga

Being based in Rarotonga puts us in the perfect position to present your property to buyers and conduct viewings either in person or virtually. We are familiar with all nearby amenities such as reputable schools, convenience stores and landmarks as well as the local history of the area and district. We can also share first-hand information on matters such as schooling for the children, health care, local community groups, shipping, and pet care, and have dedicated staff on hand to assist with filing any necessary paperwork with government departments and private agencies to ensure a seamless transition.

Solid Contacts, Global Marketing Reach, and Database of Eager Buyers

Our international realty experience sets us apart from other real estate agents. Having worked in the European real estate industry, we have a strong network of connections throughout Europe and have global marketing reach to buyers on a large international scale. We are also heavily connected to French Polynesia as well as Australia and New Zealand, and have access to the same listing portals, EDMs, and privileges as other international agents. We have built an extensive and solid database of qualified buyers-in-waiting for the Cook Islands and use the latest digital systems that allow us to keep in touch and look after our clients. To date 70% of our listings have been sold to Cook Islanders living locally & overseas and 30% to overseas foreign investors.

Expert Advice on Foreign Investment Process

Because our sister company Jeff Tikitau Elite Management specializes in the facilitation of business development and projects, we have a dedicated team working closely with the Foreign Investments Division of the local Business Trade and Investment Board (BTIB), Ministry of Justice, Ministry of Foreign Affairs & Immigration (MFAI), Ministry of Health - Te Marae Ora. This puts our brand in the best position to hand-hold foreign investors and directly assist them from beginning to end in preparing and filing all applications for approval with BTIB and other various Government agencies.

We are the only real estate agency with an in-house marketing support team and sales office in the Cook Islands. Our support team works diligently behind the scenes using the latest technology and is dedicated to getting you the best possible results. In addition, we have reputable professionals and experts as part of the team to assist prospective buyers to complete their full due diligence. Our high-visibility office is located directly opposite Rarotonga Airport and receives a continuous flow of foot-traffic daily.

Experienced and accustomed to a high level of professionalism & code of ethics

Our professional realty experience under the French National Real Estate Federation in Europe also means that we are accustomed to working to a high level of professionalism and high code of ethics, as our below past client testimonials prove. Communication, trust, and transparency are important to us, and we appreciate that each and every client has a different and unique set of requirements. We take the time to listen, and are there to help every step of the way. Please take a moment to read the section below entitled, 'What our past clients say about us'.

Passionate about Real Estate

Because we are passionate about real estate, our dynamic team is enthusiastic about the work we do and has an energetic professional approach to creating the very best results. We are fresh and innovative in our marketing, and have succeeded in selling properties in the Cook Islands which had been previously listed on the market for a number of years prior to the vendor engaging in our services.

Commission-Based Work

You will not pay agency commission fees until your property or business becomes unconditional or is sold. This makes us work harder than other agents. Our commissionable rate is in line with the standard commission charged in the Cook Islands and is applied to the agreed purchase price of a sale.

Whether you are wanting to sell or are just thinking about it, get in touch on telephone +682 53658 or send us an email to discuss the best approach to move forward.
