Perth real estate agent rocking up a storm

Perth real estate agent Brent Compton can now add singer and songwriter to his CV after he wrote and performed this catchy YouTube video to help sell this four bedroom Manning house.

The Ray White City Residential selling principal and auctioneer approached up and coming Perth band Tangent to help him rock out a property music video.

Tangent had been rehearsing at the property at 30 Conochie Cres, Manning for some years.

Band leader David McSweeney said he was excited when Mr Compton approached the band to help him market the tidy red brick home in a creative way.

“I gave Brent a list of the songs we and he ended up selecting “Stuck In The Middle With You” by Stealer’s Wheel. It’s a catchy upbeat tune which gets the audience tapping their feet,” Mr McSweeney said.

“Brent did a great job on the lyrics and it only needed a bit of tweaking from me in a couple of spots – the end result was great.

“While Brent will be the first to admit he is not a singer, his presentation and sheer enthusiasm carried the day.

“We recorded it on one of our usual Thursday night rehearsal sessions. Getting the sound right was a concern as we are only set up for rehearsing, not recording, but Paul, our videographer, did a great job in the end.

“Everyone in the band had a great time and loved the result.

“The video is the first of its kind and everyone that I have shown it to has absolutely loved it.

“It shows the property in a great light and the music aspect takes the serious edge off the presentation. I have had a lot of positive comments about the video shots of the surrounding areas, especially the overhead shots from the drone.”

Well, I do know why I came here tonight
I got a good feeling about Ray White
I’m so scared in case you don’t like or share
Cause I’ve got to sell this house, you know it’s really quite rare
Schools to the left of me, Cafes to the right,
Here I am, stuck in the Manning with you
Yes, I’m stuck in the Manning with you,

Well, you can start off with something,
And you’ll be proud that you renovated man
And your friends they all come running,
Pat you on the back and say,
Geeeezz, geeeezz

Trying to make some sense of it all,
But I can see it makes no sense at all
Is it cool to sand and polish the floor
‘Cause Jarra timber it’s so hard to get anymore.
Schools to the left of me, Cafes to the right,
Here I am, stuck in the Manning with you.
