The Importance Of Communicating On Your Listing Forms

(Due to privacy, we have named the male sales agent Fred!).

On a weekly residential sale’s run a few years ago, a colleague had arranged for our sales team to inspect a property. He had listed the property some time ago & hadn’t been able to sell it.

So there we appeared.  Myself, the male colleague/listing agent, & another male sales agent.  The door opened & Fred was greeted by his female client with a huge smile.  Introductions took place and his client was all smiles until she saw me!

Can I Kill Your Dog PLEASE!!!

image

Ok so that’s a tad dramatic.  I am female after all,  so I reckon I can get away with a small array of dramatics from time to time.   I couldn’t really kill a dog, I just want it to shut up.  I just NEED to sleep sometime this year. Lack of sleep affects 1 in 4 people so I’m told by my doctor.  I’m certain, that currently I’m the one in the four.

Ask yourself, how much sleep you are currently getting on average a night? We don’t realise how important sleep is for our daily working routine, until we experience a period where we are deprived from it.

From the Harvard Medical School – Sleep, Performance, and Public Safety Lack of sleep exacts a toll on perception and judgment. In the workplace, its effects can be seen in reduced efficiency and productivity, errors, and accidents. http://healthysleep.med.harvard.edu/healthy/matters/consequences

Is This An Act Of Terrorism?

image

This morning I woke to what I believe is a horrendous crime.   A book tossed outside amongst the debris.

How could this be?  Who put this here?  A child I assume.

I sit shocked at how my parenting has dwindled.   How did my world get so busy that I have obviously not expressed clearly enough to one of my children how precious books are, and pass on the knowledge that these forms of art are someone’s tireless effort creating something to offer back to the world?  Instead this work of art has been left abandoned & outcast as rubble & mistaken as of no importance.

What Is Creative Real Estate?

creative

I’m speaking to agents now….THROW the training manuals in the bin & get out in the real world!  Who invented this stuff.  The world is moving so fast, these manuals CAN NOT & DO NOT keep up with the reality in selling & current markets.  They are a guideline only!  Try something new. HELP your clients achieve what they need by thinking differently.  STOP selling auction methods in markets where auctions don’t thrive in, meaning they are not in favour of your vendor only the buyer.  Stop jamming vendor paid advertising down your clients throat as the first option, because that’s the only method you understand & have been taught.  Each sale needs to be individually assessed.

We are in a buyers market! Creative real estate comes into play in a buyers market, because YOU need to come up with something unique now to help your clients sell at a price they will be happy with.  In a market flooded with sellers that NEED to sell and savvy buyers who have researched the market well,  who have a clear and defined idea of what it is they want to buy, how are you going to put your vendors interests first?

Get A Load Of These Guys!!

Childers In The SPOTLIGHT!!

Have a look, who was out to play while we were visiting Mountain Haven Villas Estate the other day!

These guys cracked me up.  When I tried to get close enough to get a good photo, they all went from lying around, to ears pricked up and standing to attention.  It was about two o’clock in the afternoon & it was as if they knew that they still had a good hour to snooze in the playground before the kids returned from school and wanted it back!  I was apparently upsetting the local community routine….it was really really funny.   Just another day at the office!  As you can see it’s a hard working life here in the Bundy region wouldn’t you agree?

The five people who influence us the most…&  the ones who need ditching!

Firstly let’s define influence.  The Oxford dictionary defines influence as, the capacity to have an effect on the character, development, or behaviour of someone or something, or the effect itself.

With that in mind, let’s have a good look at the five people who we spend most of our time with & therefore influence our thought processes.

Is Bundaberg The Next Townsville?

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I can’t help feeling here in mighty Bundaberg hub of the Coral Isle, we are 10 – 15 years behind Townsville.  I spent many years in Townsville growing up & the first thing that attracted me to the Coral Coast in particular the Bundaberg Region, was how much it reminded me of Townsville as a child.  It really was like stepping back in time.  Have a look at how far Townsville has come today.  I truly believe you will see the same progression in and around Bundaberg.  Lets compare: Continue reading Is Bundaberg The Next Townsville?

Parasites of disaster

The media really piss me off in times of natural disaster.   I know it’s great for ratings, but could they stimulate something positive at least some of the time.  I ask, where is our follow up interview in Bundaberg, highlighting how quickly we got our town back on track and how we can still out price and out rent many significant areas of Australia?

I am truly done with the bullshit.  I challenge Murdoch’s group to go to all of the places across Australia that they happily released media on in time of disaster & do some positive follow up interviews.

Little Pot Of Gold

 

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

We woke up on Sunday morning with the idea of driving around the Coral Coast taking some more photos for you all.  Our biggest problem was where to start.  The Coral Coast is so accessible from Bundaberg itself.  Agnes Waters, 121km away, is the most northern town & Burrum Heads 109 km, the most southern.  We decided to keep it to the coast so we could take the little boys & they could swim along the way at our various stops.  So armed with togs, towels, scooters we started off.

THE WORLD’S MOST EXPENSIVE GHD

GHD

For all of those ill informed individuals, who do not know what a GHD is, it’s a tool used to straighten your hair perfectly.  These little babies usually retail somewhere in the $300’s depending on the matching accessories released with each model.   You’ll notice from my title that I claim to have paid for the world’s most expensive GHD, so et’s go back a couple of years & you can explore my disaster.

I was a stay at home mother with four children.  I like to invest and had a go of a few things over the years, some more successful than others.  I had started at the time, a little system which involved building investment properties…..But we will need a whole other blog for this system, so let’s continue on with what brought me to the heading above.

I had read a quite a lot about investment diversification.  Particularly about branching out and diversifying into buying businesses. So I thought, hey let’s give it a crack.
