I got a bit of a fright just before. I was driving back down the cappucino strip with Miguel on our way back to the office and the next thing I see, this massive big grey thing straight ahead of me (it’s an American warship in the port).
I thought, ’Oh no, they’ve read my last newsletter where I’ve been having a go at the American financial situation and they’re coming after me’.
It’s actually fantastic having the sailors in town. it really makes the whole town very vibrant, very busy and the locals get quite a few dollars going through the till which means they can buy a few more properties through De Freitas & Ryan.
Obviously there’s lots going on out there in the big wide world and there’s lots that’s been going on here at De Freitas & Ryan in what’s ’Been Another Big Week in Real Estate.’
Trav has just had a really big deal confirmed this morning and we’ve started the month of October really well. Bill wrapped one up yesterday which is good because things have been quiet in House & Land Packages. He’s a bit of a star he is our Bill and ’Well Done’, mate.
Everybody’s busy and the new office is coming along really well. I can’t stop dropping in and having a quick look at the progress each day.
We have had a wonderful reaction to our October Monthly E-Newsletter and if you get a chance, have a quick read.
Dalena keeps forwarding me emails that have come in from many different parts of the world regarding our e-newsletter and some of the comments are hilarious. It’s a great business this and we are able to do some amazing things with all the new technologies available.
Rentals have been a real ’slog’ this week with Nuno out nearly all day every day doing his October inspections and yet he has still managed to lease 5 properties this week (and Monday was a holiday).
Corey has just dropped in on his day off and looks like signing up a deal this afternoon, and I’ve got our new Salesperson, Sam (Salvatore) coming in to see me shortly to organise a few details.
We’ve had to put up with Rob and Rod for quite a while and now we’re going to have to get used to Sam and Sam. Yes, our Samantha is away on leave at the moment so when she gets back maybe she and our new Sam will have to work out who’s going to be who.
Busy as. Must go and thanks again for all the support regarding our e-newsletter and business in general. It’s been really great.
Catch you again next week.
