My book Sold Above Market has been a sleeping success with thousands of copies now sold since its release late last year. Real estate agents from all over the world are using my book as a guide to help potential sellers understand the importance of choosing the right real estate agent to sell their home. It really does matter which agent they choose and we are know that not all agents are equal so become the agent that enjoys the attention of sellers who understand this simple fact. After all, 67% of people selling their property said choosing an agent was the most stressful step in the selling process.

The others live interstate so when I called this morning I found out they were all at the house today, sorting out who gets what, I had an idea. I went to the best bakery in Mosman and picked...

Yesterday, we hosted a client get together for the first time. I have heard that it is an effective way to generate good will but had never taken the time to organise it, until yesterday.

The other item we use at open for inspection homes is a signboard flag to attract attention. This flag simply says INSPECT with the agency website on the bottom, they are made of nylon so they are light and dry quickly if they get wet. We use a round timber pole (painted company colours) and it j...

I haven't seen what everyone else is using yet but I thought I would show you the signboard that I use at open homes. This is an A frame sign that is hinged at the top with a handle and when stored in the trunk of my car is folded so the WELCOME sign can't be scratched. They are heavy duty and ge...

I have posted examples of Australian signboards before but here is one example with a light attached for extra attention at night time.
