Property Blog – Week 5

By Rod Ryan

The best time to get photos of the the beautiful Indian Ocean is first thing in the morning so I hope the Owners of the magnificent block I’ve just put on the market in Toulon Grove Coogee, will be pleased with how it comes up on our website. Incidentally, it is an 825 sqm lot on top of the world in Coogee with wide panoramic ocean and island views and it’s yours for $995,000. Take a look, it’s a fantastic block.

It’s been a fairly quiet week in some ways but that’s been good as we’ve all been busy with pest and buidling inspector appointments, etc…from our huge month of sales we had in October.

Having said that, I’ve just been reminded by Miguel that we’ve also sold over $4 million dollars worth of real esate this week but I’ve also reminded him that $1.650 of it was one sale in Pearse Road Wattleup. Yes, the team continue to perform well and the other thing is that we’ve listed well this week with Travis Lindstrom showing off with listings in Canningvale, South Lake, Port Kennedy and Dawesville.

All our blocks in Wattle Grove are now sold and our house and land packages are keeping us extremely busy.

Joey Castaldi is all excited about his new ’doer-upper-er’ in Orelia he’s just listed for $275,000 and he’s confident it will sell this weekend.

It was really nice to be acknowledged by the Princess Margaret Hospital Foundation for our support of “the kids’’ and I can’t tell you how thrilled and committed our team are with the association we have with the Foundation. Everytime we sell or lease properties, the kids benefit and that’s just great! I can’t say too much but we’ve been looking forward to catching up with Lesley Hooper, the Fundraising Development Manager at Christmas.

I mentioned last week that we had made the decision to employ two new Residential Sales People and I’m glad to report that we’ve made one of these appointments.

Mr. Corey Paice, his wife Sarah and four year old princess, Amelie have just arrived from England. Corey’s real estate sales experience is really interesting and he’s going to have to adjust from selling castles in Southern England to palaces in Freo.

Seriously, we are thrilled to have Corey starting with us and he and his family will be a ’perfect fit’ at De Freitas & Ryan.

I have lots more to tell you however after thinking it has been a bit quiet this week, I’ve just realised,

“It’s Been A Big Week In Real Estate”
