By Miguel De Freitas & Rod Ryan.

Once again De Freitas & Ryan have taken a lead and joined in the WORLDS GREATEST SHAVE and raised serious money for the dreaded big C. It effects and impacts on all our family’s in one way or another and we can’t thank our wonderful head of Commercial Property Management, Julie Kibell enough for organising this wonderful fundraiser.

Thankyou to our participants Julie, Miguel, David & Madhu for getting up close and personal with the razor and in Madhu’s case the red paint tin. Great effort.

Well done to all our Commercial office and to Sue & Melita at Cockburn office for tipping in money from across the road office.

Yes we are selling houses and yes we are busy and yes we are loving what we do.

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

Its been another big week in real estate

Well it has been another big week in real estate with some excellent results coming through in both sales and leasing. Migi is back from Melbourne, I’m back from Kalgoorlie and Milton is back from Baldivis. It’s all happening.

This year we decided to advertise on 6PR Radio, however Big Trav requested that we slice off a bit of our advertising budget and go on Sunshine F.M as well. Well Trav rang me today to tell me that another agent has “pinched” our ad and that it is on Sunshine F.M. We naturally are a little perturbed about this so we will be “locking horns” with a few people going forward and getting things sorted. When we sort this out we will make an announcement but it won’t be on Sunshine F.M I give you the drum.

We’re all very busy, lots going on and well catch you again after another big week in Real Estate.

Property Blog – Week 567


Yes another big week in Real Estate at De Freitas and Ryan. We just finished our weekly finance meeting with our general manager and it appears we can keep the doors open for another week. Well done everyone, our company continues to build and it’s all very satisfying.

Melita just put a nice email on my desk from one of her clients which states “Hi Melita, thank you so much for doing it for me! You are always so kind! I am glad I have my property with you guys! Great job!” Melita’s probably after a pay rise, but I must say she along with the rest of our Property Managers do a brilliant job.

Now with the long weekend upon us I am pretty keen to race out the door, so this week’s blog will be a short one. Again I would like to sincerely thank all our staff for their wonderful support which has resulted in us having a brilliant start to 2019.

Its been another big week in Real Estate.

February 22, 2019

By Miguel De Freitas & Rod Ryan.

Boy, what happened to February. Lucky we had a good start to the month as we have been a bit slow this week. Every deal seems to have difficulties and you could say it’s been a frustrating week. Hopefully next week will be more of a normal week.

I attended our Wanneroo meeting on Thursday and gee they are doing well. We need to add another staff member up there as the work load continues to build. Our rental meeting at Cockburn office is a delight to attend and I’d have to say we have by far the best team of Property Managers we’ve ever had.

We are really proud of our Rockingham office and their achievements and now that we have a strong base down there we have started to invest further in the business particularly our sales side of things. We are looking forward to a very busy year in Rock Vegas.

Big Gazza continues to dominate the leader board, however some of our young guns have plenty going on.We looked at a fantastic 100 year old home in West Leederville yesterday with Dave La Rosa and it looks like we have it going up for auction in a few weeks time. Talking about auctions we are auctioning a fantastic site just up the road on North Lake Road, Cockburn Central next Wednesday at 12 noon, so come along and buy yourself a mixed business bargain.

The appointment book is full today so we’ll catch you again next week after another big week in Real Estate.

A great week this week. We had “Super Star” Luke Holmes from our Wanneroo Office run our sales meeting and you soon realise why he is doing so well. A most impressive young man with great skills which he was happy to share with our team.

Gary Stacey was all upset this week as some “Nobody” as he referred to them as, had put out drop mail in South Lake suggesting that they were South Lakes Number 1 Agent. Well the next thing Gary started showing me all these stats showing that he is the top selling Rep in South Lake and that he was about to let his new best enemy know all about it. We calmed him down, gave him a big drink of water and told him to focus on himself and not the opposition. I think someone out there might learn that you don’t poke a bear in the eye, particularly a really, really, big bear.

We continue to build as we go deeper into 2019 and it’s been a lot of fun putting things in place at all our offices. New radio contract for Pert Office, new local paper advertising for Rockingham and many many other new initiatives right throughout our company.

We welcomed Young Cristian Frederico to our residential Sales Team this week and he certainly appears to have all the necessary ingredients to make an impact in this industry. Five years in the Building and Project Marketing side of things should give him a solid base to build on in the wonderful world of Real Estate.

Time to go as we have got a lot to do today including changing the water in all the vases our Valentines day girls received yesterday.

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

Property Blog Week – 564


by Miguel De Freitas & Rod Ryan

Well we’ve done some good work this week as we are continuing to put things in place for a big 2019. We’ve had a great start to the year with a big January and the enthusiasm around all offices is just wonderful. Our new staff members continue to impress and yes it’s great having “new blood” in the organisation.

6PR has “killed off” the Saturday morning Real Estate program which is a real disappointment for us but “Thems the brakes.” Miguel wants to set up his own radio station so we can get back on the airways, and knowing Mig he might just be serious. You never know we might be bumping into Alan Jones or Neil Mitchell in the office board room.

Milton Coombe is all excited this morning, as he has just sold one in Winthrop last night and he thinks he’s going to sell another two on the weekend. That’s what he said last week and nothing happened, but you cant knock his enthusiasm.

Fremantle is “fair dinkum” the best place in the world. Last night I grabbed hold of my lovely wife Melita and told her I was taking her down the road for a coffee. She wondered why we were driving down to North Head and we were surrounded by “skyscrapers of containers” and then I told her we were actually going to have a look at the biggest Tri Maran in the world. Spindrift is the most crazy wonderful sailing machine in the world and holds 9 world records. It was attempting to smash the world record for sailing around the world when it made a quick dash into Fremantle to say hello to the Boys and Girls from De Freitas & Ryan.What really happened was that they had some mechanical failures and were forced to abort their world record breaking attempt. If you get a chance sneak down to North Port Harbour and check her out for yourself or if your boss isn’t watching just look it up on Youtube and you’ll thank me forever.

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

Property Blog Week – 563


By Miguel De Freitas & Rod Ryan

Well if every month could be as satisfying as January just gone has been, we would be certainly more than pleased. Every office, every department has made significant gains in both sales and managements and it is so good to see the looks on all of our staff’s faces as we celebrate our success.

Real estate can be a very rewarding career and it can also be a most stressful job, however if you’re able to work for a great company that’s going places it can be a wonderful ride.  Talking about ride, Miguel took my Mercedes car off me because he told me that I was doing too many miles. So we had it all detailed and we’ve put it in one of our factory units so superstar Miguel can sell it for us. The only problem is it appears nobody wants to buy my beautiful ML250 and in the meantime I’m driving around in a Holden Barina with my head sticking out the side window. So if you see a little white car, with long grey hair flowing from it please don’t be abusive as its going to be at least another 2 months till I get my new Camry.

Now talking about superstars, we are thrilled to announce that two of our “young guns” at Perth office and that’s James & Christine will be tieing the knot this weekend. We can’t express how thrilled we are for them as this young “power couple” are really going places. All the very best for your big day from all of us at De Freitas & Ryan.

We’re all particularly busy in here this afternoon and a few of us are trying to get out of here to go to places unknown, however we will catch you again next week after what is sure to be another very big week in real estate here at De Freitas & Ryan.

Oh by the way, if you’re looking for a superb as new ML250 Sedan contact Miguel De Freitas on 0417 268 465 and offer him $45,000. Believe me it’s a bargain at that.

Property Blog – Week 562

Its been a wonderful week in Real Estate this week at Defreitas & Ryan, as we’ve got all the crew back and its really a case of “shake rattle and roll.” Migis gone a little bit nuts this week and i won’t tell you the figures because you wouldn’t believe them anyway.  Its no wonder they call him “migi the marvel.” Miguel isn’t the only one who has been kicking a few goals as ” cool hand Luke ” up at Waneroo has also been excelling.

Milton at Rockingham has also joined the party, along with Dave and Gary at Cockburn office. It looks like we’re set for a brilliant 2019!

We’ve put alot of work into our Rockingham office & our staff down there are all on board and doing some really great things. Alot of excitement in our rental department with a lot of new business coming in the door. We’ve been leasing properties extremely fast to excellent tenants. We don’t expect to do to much over this long weekend, as everybody is heading north, south, east or west and looking forward to a short break after what has been a very busy start to the year.

We’re all in a hurry to get out the door, so we will catch you again next week after another big week in real estate!

Property Blog – Week 561

It has been a really nice start to the year with probably the best part being seeing our new members of staff fitting in so well with our wonderful team all across the Mighty De Freitas & Ryan Real Estate Company.

Sales have been busy and leasing quite amazing, and new business right across the board very satisfying. Next week will see all our staff back from leave and raring to go, so watch this space for what is shaping up to be a brilliant 2019. This time each year we have some very tired staff with all our tennis experts sitting up watching the A O into the wee hours of the morning. I’ve been over in Melbourne checking out the market and may I say it is very obviously on the skid with our market in Perth really on the build.

Now Mig will probably not be too impressed that I’m sharing this with you, but he and I have bought our first and most likely our last racehorse. We work really hard so we thought this is something that we and our friends and family would get a lot of joy from. Both Melita & Sam have already bought new hats and are convinced they will be in the winner’s circle that first Tuesday in November. Anyway we are still yet to name this wonderful young colt but Real Estate Man is looking good. We will catch you again next week after another big week in Real Estate and chaff sales.

Well 2019 is here and in our first of the year we would like to wish you all a very happy and healthy 2019. We finished the year off well and we are all excited about what we can achieve in 2019. We have some brand new staff on board at our Rockingham office and we are looking forward to doing extremely well down there this year. So watch this space!

We have had a great start to the year and it is kind of nice having some of our own teams kids around the place earning some pocket money assisting around the office.



I have had meetings at Waneroo office and Cockburn office today and I’m so proud of the way they are trading. Big year this year, hey people! As for Perth office and Commercial office, they just keep on building and building. Great to have Sir Milton Coombes back from New Zealand and it is going to be a big year in both sales and rentals in “Rock Vegas” office this year.

Got to go as lots to do, including enjoying some of Laura’s wonderful birthday cake.
