What are we going to do?

Wednesday 01 Apr 2020

I don’t think there is anything I can say this week another than, it’s tough. Bloody tough. For everyone.  I’ve been in business for over a quarter of a decade, I thought I’d seen it all, but obviously nothing like this.  This is big and it’s tough on every single individual in our community.  The questi ....

Opening - Just with a Difference

Wednesday 25 Mar 2020

We can make this work. That’s the message I’ve given to our team this week and it is the message I want them to pass on to their clients.  Yes, we can still make this work and still deliver great service and results.  We can do it, we just have to do it differently and we have to because our tenants, landlords and homeowners n ....

The new NEW normal

Thursday 19 Mar 2020

I was almost not going to talk about CoronaVirus this week. I had another blog prepared and ready to go thinking you all might actually be looking for commentary on something different. But the unavoidable reality is that things ARE different, and just like everyone else we are working through how to deal with the new, new normal. I have spoken oft ....

Flight to quality

Wednesday 11 Mar 2020

I’m a glass half-full kind of guy and I’ve long been an advocate for continual learning which is probably why I can identify the important and positive developments that are emerging in the wake of the building safety standards crisis that has caused anxiety across the new apartment development market.  From the bad there is some g ....

What do you really think?

Wednesday 04 Mar 2020

Few were surprised by the RBA decision this week to drop interest rates to the historic low of 0.5%. Unsurprisingly the next consideration is what might that mean for the residential property market? So. Want to know what I really think? Interest rates obviously play an important role in the property market. The cost of borrowing money influences d ....

Repeat after me...

Thursday 27 Feb 2020

In this blog I like to present a view of the residential property market that is candid, relevant and informative.  I aim to keep the content fresh and interesting, but this week I am going to repeat myself.  I have written about this before but given the circumstances I think it really does bear repeating. The market is strong. With grow ....

Invest in the process

Wednesday 19 Feb 2020

It’s no secret that I’m a fan of auctions. Regardless of prevailing sentiment, commentary or conditions in my view taking a property to auction is worth it. And now is as good a time as any to see the value that can be delivered by taking the plunge and making the investment to take a property to auction. Here’s why… It migh ....

We need more...

Tuesday 11 Feb 2020

Does anyone else feel like there is a pattern of either too much, or too little?  From fires and droughts to flooding rains, we’ve seen it all this summer and in terms of the residential property market I can report that over recent weeks the floodgates have opened.  It’s literally liked to the floodgates have opened to enquir ....

What should we expect?

Wednesday 05 Feb 2020

It’s often referenced and regularly acknowledged as being an important ingredient to success. I repeatedly talk to our team about focussing on it, but recently I’ve been prompted to wonder if there is actually a universally agreed definition on what it means. Service. What is it and what should we expect?  In terms of service the t ....

We are staying...

Wednesday 29 Jan 2020

The majority of our team have been at their desks for several weeks now but I think this week actually feels like the official beginning of the business year.  With school holidays now over we all settle back into the rhythms of regular work days with a mixture of both reluctance and relief. So what can we expect from the market?   T ....
