Wow what a week. We seem to be “putting a lot of fires out” this week as you can probably see and smell in the air all around Perth at the moment but that’s nothing compared to what’s going on at our beloved Fremantle Football Club. Less said the better but watch this space.
Migi and I went to one of our commercial clients homes in beautiful Coogee last Friday afternoon to help them remove a large olive tree from their front garden. After a lot of work we were able to dig it out and replace it with a beautiful frangipani. Now listen to this. At 5:30am the next morning (courtesy of the owners hi tech surveillance cameras) some “bunny” wearing a hoody climbs up onto the elevated garden bed and steals the plant and runs off down the street. But that’s not all folks. To our clients surprise Mr Bunny then decided for whatever reason this is not a good thing to do, so at 8:30pm the frangipani is dumped back in the driveway of their home by the same hooded hero. We do live in a strange world these days don’t we?
We’ve had a few good sales this week, one in particular to our company plumbers or at least that was the “leak” from our commercial office. Phil Cook has just sold a beautiful home in Safety Bay and yes it’s been a good week all-round. Zirkea at Rockingham has reported a real “spike” in the number of homes they are leasing down there and the same applies at Cockburn.
Sir Milton Coombe is getting some good enquiries on his 100 acre farm we’re auctioning in a couple of weeks and Dave is looking forward to opening up his “plum” in the Raffles building. Luke at Wanneroo has two “bank auctions” coming up in a few weeks time, so yours truly is going to be a busy, busy boy.
We are all working extremely hard and extremely well, so we’ll catch you again next week after another big week in Real Estate.
