Yong says, “The Tide has Turned”

At the recent annual awards night for the Yong Franchise Group it was all about improvement. Nine out of ten of the top individual award winners all improved on their previous year’s performance. Even the person who did not have an overall improvement can be excused as he had an extended overseas holiday during the year.

In fact, the top ten averaged an increase in their commissions of slightly over thirty five thousand dollars from the previous year.

The downturn in the economy has had a profound effect on the Real estate Market, with a large number of people finding it too hard and leaving the industry.

However it is obvious that the best people are still in the industry and that those people are not just surviving but they are thriving in this market.

It was worth noting as well that the people who led the way by selling the most properties (In other words, doing what their clients wanted). Were also the leading marketers of properties, proving again that despite the dominance of the various forms of low-cost on-line marketing. The best results are still achieved from a strong all-round approach to marketing, utilising not only the internet but also the print media.

A special congratulation goes to Maggie Diu from Yong Allawah in NSW picking up three National number one awards. She was the leading agent in Australia for sales commissions, the number of listings achieved and Marketing Dollars collected and spent.

Also deserving of special mention is Tina Edwards; Tina was the Number one for Queensland and Number two nationally.

This is an exceptional result, given the especially tough times the Queensland Real Estate Market has been through. Queensland has not only suffered the effect of the GFC but also the additional effect of the severe floods.

Well done to Maggie and Tina and all the other award winners.
