Mile­stone for prop­erty team

Albany Advertiser - - NEWS - Shan­non Smith

Al­bany’s Pro­fes­sion­als Arthur John­ston Snow­ball real es­tate agency is cel­e­brat­ing its 121st birth­day this year.

Direc­tor Greg Pear­son has come from a fam­ily of suc­cess­ful real es­tate agents and has al­most 20 years ex­pe­ri­ence in the in­dus­try.

He said build­ing a qual­ity team to gain the re­spect of the com­mu­nity was why the agency had been so suc­cess­ful.

“All of our team ap­pre­ci­ate the area we live in and love the op­por­tu­nity to show­case what our re­gion has to of­fer,” he said. “We have never had as­pi­ra­tions of hav­ing the big­gest team but sim­ply want to be known for hav­ing a hard-work­ing, ded­i­cated team of real es­tate pro­fes­sion­als.

“There is def­i­nitely a need to be ready to change and adapt to not only the chang­ing mar­ket, but also trends and tech­nol­ogy within the real es­tate sec­tor and our mar­ket­place.”

Mr Pear­son said the com­pany not only han­dled real es­tate trans­ac­tions, but also helped peo­ple reach their goals and dreams. “Peo­ple ob­vi­ously move house for many var­ied rea­sons, but to help them reach their in­di­vid­ual goals is re­ally very sat­is­fy­ing,” he said.

The busi­ness opened as Arthur John­ston Snow­ball in 1896 as a ship­ping and for­ward­ing agent for the port of Al­bany and soon changed to real es­tate and prop­erty man­age­ment when de­vel­op­ments in­creased.

In Novem­ber, 2000 the com­pany merged with an­other lead­ing real es­tate of­fice, The Pro­fes­sion­als Wat­son & Ca­pararo to be­come Pro­fes­sion­als Arthur John­ston Snow­ball.

Re­flect­ing on how the in­dus­try has changed over the past cen­tury, Mr Pear­son said the gen­eral pub­lic were far more in­formed about what was hap­pen­ing in the mar­ket.

“Whilst there will al­ways be a place for ever-evolv­ing tech­nol­ogy in our in­dus­try, this must be bal­anced with still pro­vid­ing a per­son­alised, cus­tomer-fo­cused ser­vice to our clients,” he said.

He said he would like to thank the real es­tate team mem­bers and their val­ued past and present clients.
