It’s been another big week in Real Estate

By Miguel De Freitas & Rod Ryan

Some months ago our Commercial Office sold a couple of multi-million dollar properties, however as they were complex deals we certainly didn’t count our chickens before they hatched. Well hatched they have and well done to “Migi” and the boys and girls in our Commercial division as it certainly has resulted in us having another big week in Real Estate.

Now you can’t do big deals or for that matter any deals if you don’t know what you are doing. So that is why our training program is so well received by our members of staff who really appreciate the effort our company goes to, in order to have everyone at the top of their game. 


All those lollies will keep them sweet!

Heard on the radio that a number of Real Estate Agents were meeting with a few of our State Politicians to see what can be done about “kick starting” our housing market. Sadly our industry and Perth home owners have been hit pretty hard these past few years, so maybe, just maybe, something positive may come out of these discussions.

Some 40% of sales people have reportedly left our industry, so that is a real shame as a lot of these people were energetic, enthusiastic young people trying to make their way in the tough but exciting world of property. I do feel that things are “on the up” and as I said to “Migi” the other day, there is a lot more “smoke” but not a lot of “fire”

Have a great weekend everyone and we’ll catch you again next week after another big week in Real Estate.

It’s been another big week in Real Estate

By Miguel De Freitas & Rod Ryan

Busy, Busy, Busy. Yes! it sure has been another big week in Real Estate with a lot going on in our company. Just had our Director meetings at our Perth office and yes we are in good shape with some exciting initiatives in the pipe line.

Navid is waving some contracts in my face and it appears he has just sold his new listing in Anglesey Drive Kardinya, which he only listed on Monday. Well done mate you are really starting to get good at this “caper”. Luke up at Wanneroo office has also just made Miguel’s day as he has just sold a block of land in a big new sub division in Bullsbrook that belongs to one of Mig’s clients that he referred to Luke to look after. These block are fantastic buying and Luke is about to do well with them.

Melita has just put two new ex-display homes up for rental and she is in love with both of them. She is worried to lease them but our boys and girls will do a great job of finding the best tenants.

We’ll catch you again next week after another big week in Real Estate.

It’s been another big week in Real Estate

By Miguel De Freitas & Rod Ryan

Well how slack have we been. The old mighty Blog has had a little break while Melbourne town became the focus of our operations over the past few weeks. So your school reunions, two preliminary finals, one grand final, visits to the high country of Victoria, visits to the rural area of Shepparton in central Victoria, enjoying the Docklands, Victoria market and the Melbourne CBD, catching up with former colleague Clive at the casino – Yes it’s been a busy time. So how are we travelling back home there in Perth – Pretty dam well.

Well done to all our people for finishing off the month in grand style particularly when we had a few key people away. Things are tough in the world of Perth Real Estate, so it is very pleasing to still be achieving some excellent results.

Now that I am back on deck, I just need to try and remember my passwords so I can log into my computer and get some work done.

We’ll catch you again next week after another big week in Real Estate.

It’s been another big week in Real Estate

By Miguel De Freitas & Rod Ryan

Well it must have been a big week in Real Estate last week because we were obviously that busy that we forgot to do our famous little blog. So here we go, so we’ll try and make amends this week even though it is the old Friday thirteenth.

Now our boy Lukey has been starring up at Wanneroo where he has just been appointed to act exclusively on behalf of a major corporation with the disposal of a number of their properties. They have obviously done their homework as Luke certainly is the man for the job. Meanwhile our Travis is biting down hard on nails as he waits ever so patiently for the builders and insurers to rebuild his Perth office following his visit in the middle of the night from a young lady and her vehicle at high speed. Look on the bright side Trav, maybe we can paint a big Christmas tree on the bordered up front of your office or if it takes longer than that a big bunny for Easter. I hope Trav doesn’t get to read this as he might not appreciate my humour.

Everything else seems to be going along quite well but we could definitely be busier on the sales front. We had to replace two Property Managers at our Cockburn office, however we have been extremely fortunate in that area with our “A” grade replacements. It was so lovely to hear from our beautiful Charlotte now living back in France and she even sent us a video of her beautiful French Abode.  We know she’ll be reading this so lots of love and a big hug from all of us at De Freitas & Ryan.  

We’ll catch you again next week after another big week in Real Estate.

We have some really “switched on” people within our organisation as I just had one of our staff ask me if I thought Fremantle would win this week. My response was that if Ross Lyon and the other members of the Fremantle coaching staff had listened to the mighty De Freitas and Ryan and played Sandilands at full forward and Walters and Ballantyne as crummers in the forward pockets, they would have been playing finals football every year. We then had to explain that there was a bye this week which didn’t seem to get through so it all got too hard and we just said “Go Freo”

Now talking about Freo, the word is that “Suma” will be coach and John Worsfold (BIG W) will be the director of coaching and that Freo membership will go to 100,000 and Dale Alcock will start giving away houses instead of building them.

Now as far as Real Estate is concerned I’m so depressed after listening to Peter Peard on the rumour file on news talk 6PR 882 saying that the Real Estate industry is in turmoil that I’m thinking of applying for the coaching job at Fremantle myself. It has been hard and it is getting tougher with all the challenges we now face from society and the disruptors but fortunately we’re still doing all right.

Some of our young guns attended the REIWA Awards Ball the other night and while they are a handsome bunch we never even got a “sausage” when it came to the business end of the night. Maybe next year hey guys.

This week’s blog coming to you from St John of God Hospital Murdoch. Following some panel beating done on my beautiful 67-year-old legs.

 

Hopefully I’ll be up and about pretty soon and able to start walking the streets again, putting annoying pamphlets in people’s letter boxes and informing everyone of how many houses the mighty De Freitas and Ryan have been selling. Even looks like I might have listed a home owned by one of the wonderful nurses, either that or it was just my imagination whilst under the influence of the anaesthetic.

 

Real Estate is the best job in the world, as even when in hospital everyone wants to know how the market is going and it’s all a bit of fun.  If you happen to be going past our Cockburn Office check out the new picture of “Migi” and I. I think you’ll see that the bloke on the right is far more handsome then the bloke with the beard on the left.

 

 

 

The Sales results this week haven’t been breaking any records, however we’ve been doing some excellent Real Estate work right across the board in all offices in both selling and leasing.Four of us attended a REIWA training session on Wednesday, and our trainer Jason was as excellent as the sandwiches at lunch! It was the most informative session on contracts and we all learnt quite a bit.

 

Well catch you again next week after another big week in Real Estate.

Well it’s been along time since our sales people were as busy as they currently are and that has to be a good thing for everyone. More buyers about, more homes coming onto the market and more sales taking place. Rentals have picked up as well and I know Cockburn office in particular has had a very busy week.

 

We had our annual lunch with 6PR people and what a great time we had. Chatted with ‘Millsy” from breakfast program and “Karl Langdon” from Sports Tonight program. Great people with some wonderful stories and insights and we really enjoyed our time with them.

 

We’ve been playing around with our window display in Rockingham office and we believe it is going to give us a real boost. Things are going extremely well for us down there and after about 4 years it appears that we may have finally got it right (about time).

 

It’s particularly busy in here this afternoon so we will catch you again next week after another big week in Real Estate.

Certainly has been another “BIG” week in Real Estate with our Commercial boys and girls getting the “chocolates” with yet another outstanding week in sales. A great effort but it’s not all good news for them as our lovely Madhu is leaving us (she’ll be back) as she is going on maternity leave. Fortunately, we have another star as her replacement but yes Madhu will certainly be missed.

Now “Lukey boy” at Wanneroo Office continues to build his office and Trav at Perth office would like to be doing the same as it has been nearly 2 months since a lovely young lady drove car through his office very early one Saturday morning. Nothing we can do Trav old son, we are in the hands of insurance companies and builders but I promise you mate we should have it all done by Christmas.

We have some new staff on board at Rockingham Office and even though we miss our Kelly, Le-Anne and Casey have fitted in very well. Getting busier and busier at ‘Rockvegas” and Adele is doing a brilliant job of building the business.

 

I’m flat out at the moment but fortunately I have some great support, so we’ll catch you again next week after another big week in Real Estate.

I was across in Melbourne last week and boy oh boy if you judge a place by the number of cranes that poke up into the sky old Melbourne town is running red hot. My real estate friends tell me that the market has well and truly bounced back since the election and they are extremely busy.

We too had a great week this past week and it is so nice seeing our “Reps” walking around with a spring in their step and a smile on their face. Well done to all concerned.

Well the company figures for July turned out quite well and thanks to the enthusiasm of or Reps we have started off with a “BANG” in August. Could be a great month as things seem to have “freed” up quite a bit.

It’s free dress today and I just got into strife for telling our beautiful Senior Property Manager “Vicki” that she looks about 18 but seriously we do have some very handsome staff at the mighty

De Freitas & Ryan.

 

It’s all happening in here today so we’ll catch you again next week after another big week in Real Estate.

We’ve been busy little boys & girls this week with a lot going on all around. Sir Milton Coombe at Rockingham office has had a most productive week and David, Luke & Navid have also joined in on the fun.

Had a look at a 5-acre property with Milton Friday last week that has a huge 750 square meter shed on it and it looks like he’s already got strong interest in it.

Our rental department in all offices are busy however a lot of it is people vacating which is boosting the numbers of properties available and “clogging” up the works a bit.

Well done to the Strata girls this week who have been busy bringing in two new Strata Managements and yes with Bec back from her overseas sojourn they are really building their market share.

It was celebrations all around on Saturday afternoon in Vic park when we got together to celebrate Miguel juniors first birthday party.

 

 

He’s a beautiful little fella and just like his father, as when he saw the belly dancer doing her thing we couldn’t get the smile off his face.

 

We’ll catch you again next week after another big week in Real Estate.
