Our Seventeenth Month - Jan 2020

I really like being across absolutely everything that really matters so that I don’t have to doubt any decision that we might make

2020 has begun and January was a month that felt pretty damn spivvy if I'm to be 100% honest. We’ve always made the decision to come back relatively early in January, electing to try have a few new properties organised & photographed before the Christmas break and hold them over; to help with momentum into the year and also to try beat some of the competition to the market... always seems to serve us pretty well.

Taking some time off over Christmas was really great; a lot happened for us in 2019 and being able to take a couple of weeks just to hang out with my family and spend some time (plenty of time to be honest) outside in the garden, was awesome.

Over the break I came to the realisation that I’m most comfortable and at my best professionally when I have zero doubts in my day to day work life; and while that seems like a simple enough thing in principle... there's a lot that goes into feeling that way each day; and that's a way I want all of my team members to feel every day. When it comes to our properties, our clients & the team, I really like being across absolutely everything that really matters so that I don’t have to doubt any decision that we might make in regard to a sale contract or getting to that outcome; all the details really matter to me. Anyone who's seen me at a photoshoot will vouch for this

Why do I ramble about all this now? Well, understanding what I’m passionate about has given me perfect clarity about the people I want and truly need around me... I need people who are truly great at what they do and are in the flow every day. Anything less is simply not an option and if that’s means less people in our team overall... so be it, I’ve come to learn that I'm super happy with quality over quantity.

On that front, we’ve been extremely fortunate to team up with someone who I feel will add immense value to our business; through adding value to our clients. True value, not the hyped up generalised stuff you read about... the real stuff that truly matters when selling a property. I'll happily share more on this person in the February Blog. I feel that hiring this person gives us a very unique advantage as an agency and adds a layer of service that, to my knowledge - no other agency in Toowoomba can offer in-house, especially not to this standard - super excited about this!

Obviously some real estate work happened in January too - that’s to be expected... up to 56 sold stickers now, with some more really good ones working their way through as we speak.

Talk soon.
