The Value of Stability

Wednesday 09 Oct 2019

Given all the disagreements, disturbances and division we are seeing around the world at the moment I think the one thing most people would probably be prepared to agree on is that, whilst it might not be very exciting, there is actually great value in finding, delivering and maintaining stability.  It’s a great reminder of why so many p ....

Cautious optimism not carefree abandon…

Tuesday 01 Oct 2019

I love the wave of optimism that has swept across the market in recent weeks. Nothing excites an agent more than when positivity ignites activity, so it may seem a little obtuse to hear within that climate I feel compelled to issue some words of caution. I have said many times that the role of a real estate agent is to provide clients with the fact ....

Wednesday 25 Sep 2019

Even though I’ve worked in the business for over twenty years I do love the fact the Sydney market can still deliver surprises and the latest market stats reflect what our award-winning Morton sales team have been experiencing on the ground. We are again in extraordinary territory. Right now there is more for everyone… It appears ....

A Bird in the Hand

Wednesday 18 Sep 2019

The expression ‘a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush’ may feel a little old fashioned and out-of-date but I believe the philosophy it promotes is actually highly relevant in the current residential property market. Here is why… There is certainly increased activity across the residential property market at the moment ....

These days in business and in life there seems always more to do in a day than there are hours to achieve it. Good time management is vital to successfully juggle the expectations of clients and colleagues as well as the responsibilities of family and with the increased activity that comes online in Spring the demands on agents grow exponentially. ....

What we do

Wednesday 04 Sep 2019

At the oddest times, I’ll find myself thinking about the day-to-day life and motivations of different professionals; a tennis player, an actor, a research scientist or, as was, unfortunately, my case last week, a dentist.  Is it as I imagine all applause and glamour, staring at teeth and test tubes?  At the recent Morton Careers eve ....

Questions about Qualified Buyers

Wednesday 28 Aug 2019

I’ve noticed an interesting trend in real estate dialogue has been emerging over recent months which I think reflects the increasing sophistication of the market but it does leave me to wonder. Have you also noticed the increase in references to ‘qualified buyers’?  It is no secret that over recent months across Sydney m ....

The power of positivity

Wednesday 21 Aug 2019

Last week in this blog I talked about my belief in the potential that exists across the Sydney property market which prompted some interesting conversations within our team and also with a number of our clients. This week, at the risk of sounding like a coffee mug motivational slogan, I think it’s time to discuss the power of positivity&helli ....

Seize the potential

Wednesday 14 Aug 2019

I came to a slightly odd realisation this week. I was thinking about the state of the market and considering the strength of our team when I realised I look for the same thing in people as I do in property. I seek potential. And it’s definitely out there but you do have to work for it. Let me explain…. In my view potential represents o ....

It is clear…

Wednesday 07 Aug 2019

I’ve been talking about lack of stock for a couple of weeks now and while I don’t want to bore you by flogging the same issue ad nauseum I saw some numbers this week that I believe are worthy of sharing and definitely worth considering because I think make things clear… I know there is a lot more to buying and selling property th ....
