Hello Real Estate and Minrex Resources NL have agreed not to complete their proposed reverse takeover, scheduled for January 2016.

Hello Real Estate has instead indicated discussions with a number of private equity firms have "progressed" to raise the necessary capital elsewhere for funding the demand for its home owner controlled real estate sales system.

Hello Real Estate’s growth has in the last three months seen the number of Hello licensees in Australia increase from 12 to 35 prompting its claim as Australia’s fastest growing real estate disruptor through its sale by owner system.

Hello, a licensed real estate agency that offers a low fixed fee service for clients to sell their own property, comes with dedicated hands-on mentoring.

Hello Real Estate had been set for December 2015 stock market listing with the move by Minrex Resources NL to take over Hello for $6.75 million.

It was anticipated Minrex would change into HelloReal Estate Limited raising $5 million in capital to expand the Hello business.

Hello describes itself as a licensed real estate business "which offers its clients a fixed-fee service to sell their own property supported by a team of professional service providers, covering all aspects of selling, web listings, advertising, negotiation, conveyancing and settlement services as well as professional mentoring."

According to Hello, the system achieves significant savings, less time on market and "the best market price for the property".

Hello launched in 2012 in South Australia and then into NSW in mid-2013.

The intended listed company was to have a new board, headed by Bob Lapointe, the franchise entrepreneur who brought Kentucky Fried Chicken, Pizza Hut and Sizzler to Australia.

Now in his 70s, Bob Lapointe has chaired Hello since May 2014.

MinRex Resources NL (“MinRex”) is an exploration company, listed on the Australian Securities Exchange, with its principal focus being the exploration and development of gold, base metal and tin projects in Australia.

MinRex holds two principal projects, the Deflector Extended Gold Project at Gullewa in Western Australia and the Heemskirk Tin Project in Tasmania.

The intended Hello Real Estate stock market listing via MinRex emerged mid last year, with MinRex now consulting with the ASX to resume quotation of its shares as soon as possible and will continue with its current exploration portfolio.
