REIQ Journal : September 2008
4 Robert Challenger, director of Sovereign Islands Marketing, has become a fellow of the REIQ and was recently presented with his fellow certificate by REIQ chairman Peter McGrath and REIQ manager business standards Ray Milton Mr Challenger has been a member for more than 20 years; co-ordinated the joint REIQ Gold Coast Master Builders’ Houses of the Year awards for a number of years; and has also been a REIQ tribunal adjudicator in agent/consumer disputes. Home Access evaluation underway In consultation with the REIQ, the Department of Housing has developed the Home Access Information Trial, which encourages agents to use a simple checklist to identify homes with access features. NSF Consulting has been commissioned by the Department of Housing to conduct an evaluation of the trial. The consultants would like to conduct interviews with interested real estate agents during September to gain feedback and ideas on the trial. SALES CONFERENCE A SUCCESS Over 250 real estate professionals attended the REIQ’s inaugural Sales Success Conference, which was held on 23 July 2008. The highly successful event attracted key international speaker Stefan Swanepoel, along with former Brisbane Lions co-captain Alistair Lynch, and three-time REIA National Salesperson of the Year Peter Veitch, amongst others. Those in attendance gained a better understanding of key market trends, creative thinking, motivational leadership, and learnt strategies to achieve targets and improve customer service. The conference was designed to give attendees a competitive edge in an everchanging marketplace, and this year’s excellent turnout ensures that the 2009 event will be even bigger and better. By volunteering to be interviewed, you can assist the Department of Housing with feedback that will affect how access-related information is identified and communicated. Feedback will also help facilitate effective promotion by the real estate industry in the future, which could ultimately benefit you as an agent. The consultants are interested in talking to agents who have already been involved in the Home Access Information Trial, as well as those who have not. Get involved and help shape a program that best reflects your needs!
