Before we begin……………… To pull a rabbit from a hat. “to do something very clever and unexpected that solves a problem.” To get one’s ducks in a row “to ensure all of the small details or elements are accounted for and in their proper positions before embarking on a new project. In written form, most believe the term originated in the 1970’s. But at least one article has been found where the term was used as early as 1932.” What strange days these are.  Not that long back our business was booming, and new loan approvals came thick and fast.  In fact, the loan approval was scarcelyRead More →

I recently I came across this rather awesome Management Rights marketing video put together by Tim Crooks and Alex Cook from Resort Brokers. This is definitely one of the best MR Videos I’ve ever seen. Beautifully shot and art directed and just a little bit quirky, as you’d expect from these guys. …oh, it’s a pretty good listing too. Having actually lived next door to the Hendra complex I watched it being developed with enthusiasm and it’s an absolutely stunning property, so don’t forget to reach out to Tim or Alex if you’d like more information – see the link here: https://www.theonsitemanager.com.au/permanent-management-rights/BrisbaneCity-QLD-21067390 … But also,Read More →

Thanks so much to Resort Brokers for putting on the day, in particular Marissa, Caitlin and Gareth.Read More →

The maxim in valuation has always been certainty = value, so it stands to reason that accurate and detailed listing information will attract the most appealing offers. In our business we use the listing information to pre-qualify buyers so any errorsRead More →

We have received a lot of feedback recently from our managers that Premier Sales Upgrades on RealEstate.com.au are very expensive (well, yes, no kidding!). There’s 4 reasons for this: Firstly, yes, Premier upgrades are the top level of upgrade and so they command a top level price. This can be problematic when you’re an onsite manager selling low-cost product like half million dollar apartments and competing with agents selling five million dollar houses. Secondly, a lot of franchise agents are on Premier All plans. These make premier listings orders-of-magnitude cheaper for such agents – and again when they are raking in fifty grand in commissionRead More →
