Skylarc began as the answer to the question, how can we sell large numbers of assets across New Zealand efficiently and with as much bang-for-buck for our clients?
Where New Zealanders had embraced Trade Me on an individual level, Sam Brown and Joe Kalee, saw the opportunity to use the Trade Me model as Skylarc’s number one sales platform. After all it was working for millions of Kiwis (4.5 million users at last count), and founder Sam Brown had already seen the benefit of Trade Me, championing it as a sales tool in his previous commercial roles.
Skylarc is built on a simple goal: maximising your financial return. The Skylarc team do this through rigorous attention to detail, good systems, increasing customer reach, taking a sustainable approach to business and offering a clear and transparent process.
Thanks Sam, a quick and easy way to exit business, with surprising results.
Sam and the team at Skylarc made an extremely complex process seem easy!
The professionalism and integrity they displayed was second to none and we were absolutely astounded by the results they delivered.
An absolute breeze to deal with and exceeded all expectations – I would strongly recommend their services.
