It's hard to believe it's 2018! It seems like only a few weeks ago we opened for the first time! I hope everyone had a great Christmas and enjoyed the time off to relax and unwind with friends and family.
So much has happened since our last post! So take a seat and let me give you a few highlights... rentals have been on fire, we rented 5 properties in November and 4 in December. Things really quietened down before Christmas but from the 27th December we were back out there doing our thing! We picked up a number of new managements and rented 1 property within 3 days of advertising which was a great result. It seemed as though we were one of the only agencies still operating and conducting open homes.
We've made some updates to our website, tweaking a few pages and adding some new content including my favourite feature to date..... the online chat function. Yes you heard me, you can chat directly with a member of our team, ask questions about a particular rental or sales property in real time. I think I'm a little in love with this. If you know me I love a good chat so feel free to pop on and say hi!
We also had our Christmas party & last networking event for 2017 in December! We plan to have our next event end of March / early April of this year. You can RSVP here
Now we are in full swing into 2018 and we expect the next couple of months to be busy with high numbers of students & prospective new tenants looking for rental properties. On our side we've already rented 4 properties since the start of the month and it's only 11 Jan! We've also listed a number of properties for sale including a great 2 bedroom unit in Auchenflower listed for offers over $360,000 and a solid investment opportunity in Annerley which is currently rented out until July 18 returning $430pw. Check out our website for further details on those sales and a number of others.
Reminder, if you know anyone that has an investment property be sure to pass on our details and/or let us know and we can get in touch with them. We offer a $100 gift voucher for any referrals that sign up with us for a minimum of 3 months.
In other news: Over the holiday period we (Nick & Jackie) decided to make use of the public holidays by renovating our Master Bedroom in between opening the office a few days either side of Christmas and New Year. For those of you who didn't know, yes Nick is not to bad on the tools . We wanted to make the room bigger so we removed some walls/old walk in robe, then re-sheeted the walls, added ornate cornice, a new ceiling rose and new carpet. All completed within 1 1/2 weeks over the Christmas break. Check out the finished product... we love it.
