It’s been another big week in Real Estate

By Miguel De Freitas & Rod Ryan

 

 

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.

Pretty quiet to be honest this last week, however according to Luke at our Wanneroo office he is absolutely flat out. Still got some excellent results coming through but we certainly could be busier.

Travis & Dalena have just returned after a week in the south pole (It is actually a place called Melbourne) and all they do is sit in their cars with the heater up full bore trying to thaw out so they can do some Real Estate.

We have a few members of staff holidaying in Bali at the moment so we have been a bit concerned with the reports coming through about earthquakes and possible tsunami’s. A bit of a worry but fortunately we haven’t heard of any volcano threats so they should all be home soon safe and well.

Some excellent buyer opportunities coming up, so if you have some spare catch lying around you could do really well.

 

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

Property Blog – Week 580

It’s been a busy, busy, busy week this week which is a bit unusual as whenever it is school holidays things generally go a bit quiet. We have been doing some really good work which is paying off and well done to all concerned.

 

Nathan Buckley and Peter Vlahos from 6PR at the Hyatt early this morning.

 

We were invited along to hear the coach of Collingwood speak at the Hyatt early this morning and hosted by our old mate Peter Vlahos from 6PR, it was a great event. A lot of Collingwood supporters there, so we had to be very careful with our belongings.

We have added Sonshine FM radio 98.5 to our marketing, so if you want to hear us talking property tune in at 5.30pm tonight and have a bit of a “giggle”

Really got to go as I have two appraisals to get sorted this afternoon, so we’ll catch you again next week after another big week in Real Estate.

It certainly has been a big week in real estate at de Freitas and Ryan, particularly at our Perth office where unfortunately a motor vehicle decided to pay us a visit at 1am on Saturday morning. Sadly, for Travis and all our wonderful staff at Perth office they have had a difficult job doing their real estate in what is now partly a demolition and work site. Fortunately, no one was hurt and we were just lucky that it was 1am in the morning and not 1pm in the afternoon.

 

 

All our figures are just about in for the end of the financial year so now it’s over to the “bean counters” to do their thing and we look forward to being able to measure ourselves against our self over the past year’s performance.

We’ve had some quite pleasing results this past week with some really excellent deals coming through, our new sales boy at Cockburn office Navid is doing really well. We feel a bit sorry for Navid because sadly his parents spelt his name wrong when he was born, however I guess it is good to be a little bit different. Word has it there is a large statue at his home in the front garden which is fondly referred to by his family friends and neighbours as the statue as Navid.

Well done to Luke up at our Wanneroo office, as he has just won another gold medal. This time it wasn’t in jiu jitsu but in wrestling so it’s no surprise that he is such a great negotiator. Vicki our new property manager at Wanneroo has settled in really well and all things property management at Wanneroo are going extremely well.

Rod & I checked out some wonderful new apartments in Booragoon last night and it appears that we may get the “gig” when it comes to leasing or selling these wonderful apartments. As I said before we have a lot going on and July is already shaping up to be a very busy month.

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

This past week has been a little quiet on the results scoreboard however it’s been very busy on the “getting ready for the end of financial year” time frame. Lots to do, but is an exciting time when we get to collate all of our figures and there for are able to measure our performance.

We believe we are more creative in our advertising sides of things than John Singleton and as proof of that if you listen to radio 6PR from this Saturday onward for the next 9 days I’m sure you will have a little “chuckle” with our latest air waves initiative. It’s no wonder we love this industry so much when we get to have a little play with things like radio and television.

Well done to the Eagles on their 35 point win last night and hopefully Fremantle can complete a similar performance over the weekend.

Things seem to going along quite well for us at the moment with some of our new staff members feeling like they have been part of the place for years. We have some extremely talented people within our company and the future is looking brighter all the time.

We will catch you again next week with another big week in real estate and thanks again to all of our wonderful clients who continue to support and recommend our young company.

It certainly has been another big week in real estate, particularly if you have been able to get underneath your umbrella, you could say it has been raining enquiries since the federal election has come and gone. It appears that property investors and home buyers have now decided that the time is right to get back into the property market, which is all good news for us real estate agents. God only knows what would have happened if “the other mob” had got in.

Well done to Luke and Kaylee up at Wanneroo office, as they have achieved some excellent results again this week.  Well done to the crew at Rockingham for the best rental month we’ve ever had. Well done to the commercial office, “for rubbing our nose in it” with all their fancy million dollar sales. Well done to Perth office for continuing to build their rental portfolio with wonderful new managements in and around Perth. Well done to Cockburn office, for the amount of new business they bought in last week.

All in all, were extremely busy and we can’t wait to get to the end of the financial year, so we can measure ourselves against ourselves and the competition in respect of growth over the past financial year.

Have a great weekend everybody and Fremantle by 10 points over Port Adelaide
