What a year, and if you think it’s gone quick you are right, every year it gets faster and faster. I heard a saying at a great seminar I attended, which was:
“the world has never been more fast paced and it will never be this slow again”. As we move closer to Christmas, try to slow down for a day, an hour, a minute or even a second to and reflect, smell the roses. You might just find a wonderful scent.
The Wonderful World of Real Estate on the Coast
It is getting very warm in more ways than one! Interest rates are low, banks are lending (slowly) and rent prices are dearer sometimes than the loan repayments which sees the investors starting to flock the Northern end of the Coast. Spring has seen an influx of properties hit the market and the Wiseberry Heritage Group have been making some wonderful sales for our beautiful community with many purchasers finding great value in what they secure with the curve of the market shifting upwards. With the first home buyer scheme releasing in January 2020 we are all excited to see the impact in our area and look forward to this upward trend continuing.
Tenant of The Year
If you haven’t heard of it then you may not be with Wiseberry Heritage Group. This wonderful awards night was held on the 29th October at Toukley RSL where 5 categories were judged and awarded. Congratulations to the Winners of overall Tenant of the Year a lovely couple from Toukley, Malcom & Kerry, that have been presented wonderful flowers, a fantastic trophy and 4 weeks rent as their reward. Winners of the other categories included the gratitude award, loyalty award, best presented exterior andbest presented interior. Judging was tough, with split decisions in several areas showing the high standards set.
The atmosphere in the room was electric and I must say every finalist attending was so marvellous to talk to and so appreciative to us and the landlords for the opportunity.
The program is no cost to our landlords, this is our Wiseberry Heritage Group way of saying thank you for the marvellous tenants that we look after. We know this award also attracts great quality tenants that often complain that they don’t have the same program available if they went to another real estate. We would love them to copy as we believe this will be a benchmark for quality property management services in Australia.
Wiseberry Awards Finalists
It is approaching a very exciting time of year for our team, with the annual Wiseberry Awards being held at the very new Sofitel Darling Harbour on the 23rd November. The team love this night, not only is it a time for recognition and celebration, it is also a great night of mingling with not only our own team but catching up with our friends in the other Wiseberry offices.
The Farmers Basket for Christmas
A great suggestion from one of our team members, Carolyn Green, was to support a lady she had heard on the Radio, Melissa Turner. She organises baskets, gift cards and gifts for the farmers so that they can also have good Christmas’s, even in their tougher times. Our Wiseberry offices have become a drop off point for anyone who wants to support. The idea is to donate non-perishable items, toiletries, anything really that would help families without water. They sometimes have to go into town just to do a weekly wash due to lack of water. During this next few weeks going into Christmas, what about getting one extra item in the shopping trolley and dropping it off to Wiseberry - toilet paper, sanitary items, deodorant, non-perishable food items, good quality clothing are all great suggestions. We would love your support and think it is a great opportunity. Some of our team have even opted to replace our annual Secret Santa gifts this year, and instead donate to this great cause in lieu.
