Our Backyard – Anglesea

Welcome to Anglesea

For people that are into the planets and stars, these few weeks we are currently going through are referred to as a ‘Mercury Retrograde’ cycle. Astrologers tell us that this is a time when things can go backwards before they can go forwards, so until June 11 you may be experiencing a time when anything you’re working on may require more attention to detail than usual. Contract changes and negotiations may take a bit more time and effort but the good news is anything you go through and revise or rework will set your future up well.

We have certainly found this to be true with properties we have worked on in the last week to secure sales for our vendors and buyers. Special conditions, building and pest inspections, limited deposits, subject to finance etc. Whilst nothing has been quite straight forward, in the end we have managed to achieved success and happy outcomes for all parties we have dealt with. Each situation we have worked on tirelessly to reach a mutually agreeable resolution. In real estate and in most things we encounter in life, clear communication is paramount to get where we need to.

In one day we had up to 4 offers on one property and were careful to show each purchaser openness and honesty of the situation, not revealing each offer and enabling everyone the same opportunity to purchase. Whilst looking after our vendor,  we wanted to make sure no one felt upset or unsure of the potential loss they were about to incur.  We did our best and funnily enough I did have a buyer call me and question or commend our ethics as they felt it was unusual to be told the truth and that ultimately it was very refreshing that they hadn’t experienced any hard hitting game playing that can go on in real estate.

All we can offer is that mostly we are ruled by a code of ethics and integrity but more importantly we just want to do business the best we can and treat everyone with absolute respect. For us if you really want to secure a property, just be open, straight with us and we’ll help you do it whilst achieving a positive result for our vendors.  At the end of the day we all want the same thing, a sold sticker on the board and cracking open the champagne to new beginnings.

This weekend we are off to a conference in the Gold Coast, over 3000 real estate agents from across Australia joined together to learn from the best and continue to strive for excellence. Every day is a day to grow and improve and better ourselves and we hope you feel these results in the future.
