Property Blog – Week 12

By Rod Ryan

Boy oh boy it sure has been a big week in Real Estate. I’ve had our General Manager absolutely flat out ever since she returned to work and now she’s away at Property Courses honing her skills. As a result I haven’t been able to pin her down to get our E-news letter sorted out but she’s promised me maybe next week.

Our two new sales reps are out letter dropping and getting to know the business and it’s great to work alongside such keen, enthusiastic, young men who are destined to do extremely well. Young Brendan has listed a super home in Lucas Street in Willagee and he can’t wait for Saturday to do his first home open.

The only sale we’ve made this week was courtesy of Travis and that was a $550,000 property in Port Kennedy. Well done Trav, just back from holidays and throwing 3 pointers already.

What’s been good this week is that we’ve re- visited our advertising in both format and costing as a result we’ve got some exciting changes ahead.

Robo’s been trying to sneak off and get to the cricket but he’s been extremely busy with the commercial leasing side of things and this week alone has leased four properties, the largest being a $45,000 per annum factory in Bibra Lake that we are to manage as well.

Haven’t seen a lot of Bill this week as he has been off with his finance clients (Bill told me they did over $200 million dollars in lending last week). Bill has been doing a lot of ground work with house and land packages in Success and Secret Harbour and he has a lot of sales activity in the pipeline. 2008 is going to be an extremely busy year for one Mr. Bill Mclarty.

Two auctions listed in one week means we can’t “talk” to Joey. One is in Orelia (Suit $200,000Plus Buyers) and the other is in Coogee high on the hill with Ocean views. He’s quite a character our Joey, they all love him out there and boy does he write some figures.

Miguel and I were up in Canning Vale at 8am this morning placing two new showrooms up for lease (they are both 340sqm each). Then off to a rental property in Hamilton Hill and then up and back to Port Kennedy.

Yes, we’re busy and Yes, we’re excited about 2008 and Yes, it’s been another Big Week In Real Estate.
