What a start to 2018! Mid way point review!

The midway point of the year is finally here!  We have been working hard getting homes sold! Even with Richard having an MCL Sprain that he suffered at basketball last week! We have a new team member, Frances Hacking who has taken over our marketing assistant role giving fresh takes on our approach to marketing and selling a property, and I think you will find her influence throughout our marketing. We are loving having Frances on board.  

The highlight of the year so far was speaking at our Harcourts National Conference which was in Auckland last month.  Abbey and I both shared the stage in front of 1000 of our colleagues, daunting yes, but what a rush!  
Our auctioneer Aaron Davis (no relation of Abbey) took out the Harcourts National Auctioneer of the year as well as taking out the Australian Apollo Auctioneer championship. It’s fair to say we set aside some time to celebrate his win and our #62 for the whole country! 

Our speaking engagements were still not over, last week we were once again on a panel for Team Harcourts sharing our marketing ideas.  Abbey and I love sharing our knowledge because it makes us look for ways to continually improve what we do.  

Our take on the market is that things have been a wee bit congested over the last couple of months but properties are starting to move along and the volume of listings, we keep an eye on has dropped about 20% as we head into winter. Definitely worth a conversation if you have been considering selling.  Beat the Spring rush and get on the market in Winter, sell in isolation instead of competition!  Not as crazy as it sounds.  We are getting fantastic numbers through our open homes & online web hits.
We have fantastic listings on at the moment, something for everyone.  From a home and income in Titirangi to an architecturally designed home in Sandringham. New to the market this week is a fresh & funky pad in Mt Albert and a unit in Hillsborough that is ready for a makeover.  Check out our listings below.
