Property Blog – Week 607


It’s been another big week in Real Estate

By Miguel De Freitas & Rod Ryan

Goodness gracious me. Is it the Coronavirus or is it me? I’ve had a really quiet week this week which is really disappointing as I’m raring to go. The Real Estate market the last few months has been the best it has been for about four years and then all of a sudden “bang” it’s all over. Well it looks as if I just have to put my head down and work harder to get through what looks like being a difficult next 12 months.

Well done to REIWA who have “pulled the pin” and closed down leaving us members feel a little isolated. I am so disappointed that, that has happened and whilst I realise people smarter than me are scared I can’t help but feel that they have erred on this occasion. I thought the captain was supposed to be the last person off the ship – not the bloody first.

We have decided to stick by all our clients and staff and do our best to keep things as normal as possible. As I write this I have to tell you how proud I am of every member of our company for their support, attitude and effort on behalf of all our clients as well as our directors – at this very uncertain time in all our lives. No wonder we are such a special company.

We’ll catch you again after another hopefully improving week next week in Real Estate.
