You agree to these terms and conditions (“Terms”) which are between Trade Me and you. If you do not agree to these Terms, you cannot participate in the Competition and cannot win. Trade Me may amend these Terms at any time, by either updating these Terms, or by posting a notification on agents.trademe.co.nz.

  2. Eligibility: To enter the Competition you must be a current, registered real estate agent and/or licensed real estate salesperson, or (in the case of new builds or developments) be a salesperson authorised by a property development organisation to act on its behalf, operating within New Zealand.

  3. How to enter: You will be automatically entered into the Competition if you:

    • Meet the Eligibility criteria (as described in clause 2).

    • Book and apply the Trade Me Property Premium Listing product to a residential for sale listing within the Competition Period. For the avoidance of doubt, commercial listing products are excluded.

      You will receive the following number of entries into your zone draw based on the type of Premium Listing product that you select:

    • Three entries into the draw when a Silver or Gold Package is applied to your property listing.

    • Entries are limited to one listing per person.

      For every eligible entry you receive as an individual for the agent Prize, your real estate office / new homes head office will receive a corresponding number of entries for the real estate office owner / new homes developer Prize (as further described by clause 7).   

  1. Competition period: The Competition will run from 8:00am Monday 16 September 2019 until 11:59pm on Friday 6 December 2019  (the “Competition Period”).

  2. Leaderboard: Throughout the Competition Period, the Trade Me Property Premium Listing Leaderboard (the “Leaderboard”) will display the number of Premium Listings booked and applied by individual real estate agents. The Leaderboard will be updated throughout the Competition Period, but the results displayed may be at least 24 hours old. You agree to your details being published in the Leaderboard should we wish to do so at any point during the Competition.

  3. How to win and winner notification: Trade Me will select four individual agents and four individual real estate office owners / new homes developers as winners (each a “Winner”) at random from all eligible entries on Tuesday 10th December 2019.  There will be one agent Winner and one real estate office owner / New homes developer Winner for each of the four zones that Trade Me divides its customer segments into (as determined at Trade Me’s discretion). For clarity, New Homes and House and Land Developers entries will fall into the zone where their Head Office is physically located.

    The Winners will be notified by phone on the phone number registered to their Trade Me membership by a Trade Me Account Manager on or around Tuesday 10th December 2019. 

    Trade Me reserves the right to draw replacement Winners if any Winner does not respond within three business days of notification. Trade Me’s decision regarding each Winner is final, and no correspondence will be entered into.
