Property Blog – Week 19

By Rod Ryan

It’s all go here. This last week has been incredibly busy which is a little unusual seeing as we had a public holiday on the Monday. It’s that time again for doing all our divisional reports for the month of February and I must tell you it was a real pleasure, as our figures have been quite outstanding. Yes, Leslie Hooper at the Princess Margaret Hospital Foundation will be thrilled with our cheque I’m about to forward her for February sales and rental results.

Why not get behind the kids yourself and forward your donation. It’s a good feeling to help people and they are a very special organisation.

Just to give you an idea of the market place out there it can be a little tough at present, but it all gets back to the basics of hard work and doing the right things. February was the second best month our company has had and the reason for that was the effort put in by our enthusiastic sales team.

Travis Lindstrom had six sales in February and as Trav says, “It’s even better doing well in a “tough” market.”

I walked passed our sales white board this morning and it’s full of sales activity for March already.

We’ve sold another property in Bunbury, a large commercial site in Naval Base, an apartment on Cantonment Street in Fremantle, a rural property on 3 acres in Munster, a small home in Warnbro and about 8 or 9 new storage units in Rockingham.

Haven’t heard from Bill in China but I’m sure he’ll have kicked off the month as well.

Listings are great, really great and the team is really doing a good job. Trav has listed a beautiful home in Coogee for about $1.1 million, plus the guys have listed a cheap unit in Hamilton Hill for about $255,000 and a lovely home in Samson for about $450,000.

24 Factory units have just gone on the market with us and Rod Searle Real Estate and we’ve just listed another joint agency for 6.5 acres in Wattleup. To be honest all our reps are extremely busy and I’m really proud of their performance.

Here’s Brendan, our self appointed head of our Rural Division giving us the thumbs up for the acreage on Holmes Road, Munster he sold last night.

Last night, I listed a beautiful rural property in Gosnells on acreage backing onto the Canning River for $900,000 Plus and then continued onto Beverley and placed 55 acres next to the town centre on for $775,000. Yes, it’s busy and it’s most enjoyable being part of the team at De Freitas & Ryan.

Rentals, Oh My God! We’ve created a monster in Mr. Nuno Ouro. He came in to see me this morning and gave me a list of this week’s new managements. He must have been “sitting next to Travis’ as he has achieved the number 6 as well, but in Nuno’s case it’s 6 new managements in one week.

- 1. Coode Street, Fremantle
- 2. Cantonment Street, Fremantle
- 3. Murray Street, Perth
- 4. Cardinal Gardens, Warnbro
- 5. Bromley Road, Hilton
- 6. Fluellen Way, Hamilton Hill

Our Nuno, he’s only been here “5 minutes” and he’s already too busy and reckons he needs an assistant.

As you can see we’re all having a lot of fun, we’re all very busy and yes, It’s Been A Big Week In Real Estate.

I nearly forgot, we’ve got a property in Attadale at 337A Preston Point Road up for auction at 12 noon tomorrow. It’s to suit $800,000 Plus Buyers and it’s a beauty.

Catch you at the auction or next week on the BLOG.
