Property Blog – Week 593


It’s been another big week in Real Estate

By Miguel De Freitas & Rod Ryan

A few of us have been in training for tonight’s Christmas Party of the year when we get to share a few laughs and stories with the beautiful Lorenza from LDL Settlements. Sir Milton Coombe has already “pulled the pin” as he is in the middle of wrapping up two deals, so he will be sorely missed but it is important that he make those “dollars” so he can afford to finish off his palace in Kiwi Land.

Miggi is on “baby watch” so he might also be a non-starter, so that just means more oysters for me. Now I have been missing a bit with my Blogs of late and it isn’t because I have been too busy at work, it is simply because I’ve been a bit slack. The interesting thing though is it is quite amazing how many calls I’ve had to see if I’m still alive and what’s happened to the weekly blog. I must say I was quite chuffed, so better keep going with all the highly important stuff that comes out of my biro.

Now have we been busy? The answer is some of us extremely and others not. Rockingham has been “nuts” which is fantastic, Commercial a little quiet, Cockburn, Perth & Wanneroo all busy so generally it’s been pretty good. Our new head of Property Management at Cockburn Office Melissa Young is doing a wonderful job and 2020 will certainly see some continued growth in that area.

Just had our weekly finance meeting so fortunately we have got enough “biscuits in a tin” to get us through to Christmas, so all is good. Catching up with some wonderful people in the next few days who are celebrating birthdays and amazingly so, my beautiful mum turned 94 yesterday. She’s a real star, still ticks me off and picks on my hair cut but I love her to bits and am so lucky to have her.

I’m getting off the track a bit so I better start preparing for my Auction in West Leederville that is on tomorrow at 11am 

Have a great weekend everyone and we’ll catch you again next week after another big week in Real Estate.
