Property Blog – Week 16

By Rod Ryan

I just received a telephone call from Niek at Bouncing Orange who has asked if we could hold off on our newsletter for another week or so as they are just flat out. No point in bouncing Niek or Bouncing Orange for that matter as they have been so wonderful to us in setting up all our website, etc… so I guess we’ll just have to sit tight.

It’s been another big week in real estate however it’s been a special week for Robert and Dalena as it was birthday time for these two Aquarians. I don’t know why Mig had to get in the picture but I guess that’s because after just selling another 5 lots in Forrestdale Business Park, totalling $3,488,000.00 he thinks this real estate business is a piece of cake!

Gee, we’ve been doing well. We have had a lot of sales this week with quite a few house and land packages plus the birthday boy Robert sold two industrial properties in Naval Base and a front factory/showroom unit in Port Kennedy. Travis has just sold a block of land in Port Bouvard and a lovely little home in Lacebark Close, South Lake. Oh, and the last commercial lot in Halifax Business Park in Bunbury. To be honest a lot of the ’reps’ are on fire and there is an awful lot going on.

We’ve just listed our fifth auction (it’s a beauty). It’s in Willagee on some 1094 sqm and it’s ripe for either development or renovation.

The Auditor, Martin Silver, gave us the all clear from last week’s ’shredding’ episode and everything here at De Freitas & Ryan seems to be going along really well.

Our Rental Department is busy as always however we need more properties to let.

Miguel and I had a meeting with an agent from yesterday morning. He has a client (well known in AFL football circles) that wants to develop a large portion of land in Cockburn and he may want us to act for them over here. It turns out I used to work with his business partner in real estate way back in 1971 in and I know his father quite well. It just goes to show it pays to do the right thing even when you are 3,500 kilometres away. Miguel and I are keen to be part of this project and we’ll keep you posted.

I’ve got to fly now as I’m trying to finalise a deal in Warnbro, however I’ll catch you next week after what I’m sure will be another big week in real estate.
