Asked To Speak On Stage To Real Estate Agents and Principals, this was my intro to the 30 min presentation.
Some points were:
I start the day in the dark
Energy is motion
I eat so well I’m buzzing
I never start the day until the day is finished on paper
What separates good agents from great agents is their ability to be marketers and negotiators
Focus is everything
I genuinely care about other people and helping them achieve the best possible outcome
I am constantly in pursuit of excellence
I believe in doing more than what Im paid to do. Of giving value.
I also used some metaphors to explain these.
For instance, A kitchen knife in the hands of a toddler is very dangerous but in the hands of a chef, it can feed 1000 people are gourmet meal. And the tools available in Real Estate are no different. The public has a general perception that all agents are equal.
That could never be further from the truth. Lack of care and lack of training in key points of the marketing and negotiating process will kill any opportunity of a premium price and to be properly prepared to maximise your sale price they need to have lots of energy and be highly focussed.
This is because of the extremely busy nature of the industry.
Many people don’t realise that a good agent will receive in the vicinity of 50 ingoing calls per day and make 20-50 outgoing calls per day. This is conjunction with the paper work, face to face meetings and internal business meetings that need to take place to run a successful agency.
The good agents are now becoming corporate athletes.
The sun has millions of kilowatts of energy yet with a hat and sunscreen you can block it out, yet 12 kw of energy forms a laser beam that can cut through a diamond. Focus is everything.

Real Estate Tattoo: A Regular WebTV show that covers all the Ink on Port Stephens Real Estate.
It’s a bit rusty, and speaking in front of a camera is not easy but I would like you to help produce the show.
That is give feedback(good and bad) and shape it so it does become interesting and informative over time.
I’m starting out needing any photographers who have Port Stephens Location shots that are mysterious and hard to work out exactly where it is taken.
If you could email me photos to use on the show email@example.com
If you have a photography business you will get credit and the show goes to over 30,000 people through my lists and social media so it is good exposure for your work.
Secondly, I need locals(lots of different characters from all walks of life) to volunteer to a quick 5 minute interview about what specifically what they do and what they like about Port Stephens at the location they
This is to help sell the lifestyle of the area.

What Does No Interest Rate Drop In September Really Mean?
As you are well aware by now the Reserve bank decided to keep the cash rate on hold for the month of September:
“The Reserve Bank today kept its cash rate at 4.25 per cent, defying expectations of a third rate cut in a row – just three of 27 economists polled by Bloomberg predicted the result.” SMH
This decision is right at the start of spring time selling and with the announcement coming on the back of a suggestion that the rates will probably remain on hold till the end of the year, the big question is:
“How will this decision effect spring time Real Estate markets?”
I believe there are 2 answers to this question. Each with there own question. Confused? Your with the rest of the best economics in the country. But lets start with what happened immediately.
The Sydney morning Herald reported that the Aussie Dollar rocketed on the news, jumping about one US cent to $US1.081 – a six-month high – within minutes of the announcement before easing back to $US1.078.
in recent trading.
So if this continues it can’t be good for retail, and if retail is not good, small business is not good, and if small business is not good, the Real estate is affected. The big question is, will the dollar keep rising leading to Christmas?
Real Estate markets are about confidence and at the start of Spring Selling, it gives confidence to the market that things are going well in Australia
Supply is down by about 36% and inquiry up 6.5% so the announcment has come at a good time in the market for people deciding if they put their properties on the market(Real estate is about supply and demand)
And finally it leaves plenty of room leading up to Christmas for a drop if needed.
And the question this leads to is “Will the supply rise dramatically in Spring or will the demand increase as supply increases?”
We are extremely short of properties in the $300,000 to $550,000 range and literally hundreds of buyers. If you know someone thinking of selling tell them to give me a call on 0402348080.
Question of the day: If you didn’t have to advertise or put your property on the market would you choose to sell?
