27th January, 2016
With January almost done and dusted we are well and truly into the swing of 2016. We’re excited to announce the opening of new businesses at Ray White Burwood and Ray White Romsey. We wish these teams every success and welcome them to the Ray White group.
Did you know Ray White Victoria & Tasmania held 458 training events last year? I am confident this is more than most Victoria/Tasmania real estate groups combined! If it has been a while since you last attended any form of training whether it be sales, property management, Principal or administration, click here to view our training calendar.
Finally, I would like to congratulate everyone for their wonderful support throughout 2015 of Finnan’s Gift – Ray White Victoria & Tasmania raised $111,092.28 for this fantastic charity. An extraordinary effort by our wonderful group.
Have a great week.
Ray White Vic/Tas CEO
Review Of The Week
Congratulations to Karen Chernishov from Ray White Glen Waverley for receiving this glowing testimonial from a very happy vendor!
“Karen is a wonderful real estate agent. Obviously when you are selling a house the most important thing is to get the best price possible. Based on my experience with Karen, not only will you achieve that (especially if selling in Mulgrave) but you will also get an agent who helps make what can be a daunting experience, relatively easy.
From the very beginning, Karen’s knowledge of the local market, providing simple styling hints to highlight the best features of your home in photos and open for inspections, and experience with different marketing campaigns made it an easy decision to go with Karen.
Also throughout the process she provided printed results from website searches on our property, feedback from buyers from every inspection, always prepared you for the next step in the process, and did the little extras like bringing treats for our kids.
aOn auction day we had several buyers and we achieved a result better than we hoped for, and I know that was a result of Karen’s great work. As a result it is my great pleasure to recommend Karen.”
Well done Karen, keep up the great work.

Property Management Update: ReportingOOOO
A new year brings many new things, including a new reporting survey.

We have made a few minor changes to the survey based on the feedback from the network and from the marketing team.
Please see the new survey via the link here your office administrator can complete this as soon as you have the confirmed figures for January.

Suki Says: Do you know WeChat?
In January 2011, Tencent a Chinese company debuted WeChat. Since then it has become one of the largest social networks in China. By January 2015 the number of registered WeChat accounts in China hit 1.1 billion, with an additional 100 million users outside of China. The average Chinese adult spends more than 40 minutes a day on WeChat. These days, Chinese people use the app to upload their daily lives, news, photos, videos etc. This app is essentially a combined version of Facebook, LinkedIn, Whatsapp, Instagram, Tinder and PayPal. As a real estate agent, WeChat can not only help you to create more business but is also a great tool to building relationships with your clients. We will be holding WeChat training on Wednesday 24th February from 10:00am-12:00pm at Ray White Corporate on how to set up your account and how to use the app. To register to the training please click here.
For any questions, contact Suki Fei email@example.com.
