One Auckland real estate agency boss earning $900 an hour wants a shake-up for the industry, which he says is “feeding off Kiwi complacency”.

Mike van Wagoner owns Emphasis Real Estate in Auckland.

He offers a fixed-fee structure for sales, charging between $6000 and $9000 depending on the value of the property.

Van Wagoner said traditional industry commission rates had not kept up with the reality of the property market.
