High­lights from our Trans­form PM Chal­lenge Fi­nale

IT WAS COM­PET­I­TIVE. It was fast. It was fu­ri­ous. In a fit­ting end to this year's Trans­form PM Chal­lenge, was an 'Amaz­ing Prop­erty Man­age­ment Race' event. De­signed by Elite Agent, the Great Race Aus­tralia, Realestate.com. au, Prop­erty Safe and Bu­sivid, we tested our teams’ col­lab­o­ra­tive, prob­lem-solv­ing and PM skills, and of course had some fun.

This fi­nal step in the pro­gram gave our four Trans­form teams the chance to com­pete for the ti­tle of PM Trans­form Cham­pion 2016.

The chal­lenge be­gan at Ry­dges Ho­tel in North Syd­ney. From there, our four teams fol­lowed a set trail to solve puz­zles and, as­sisted by the four Real+ coaches, prove they had the goods to win the in­au­gu­ral ti­tle.

Our four Trans­form teams had six check­points to pass:

1. Test­ing their build­ing and engi­neer­ing skills by con­struct­ing their own ‘sky­scraper’

2. Us­ing their prob­lem-solv­ing skills to find a mys­tery land­lord (Charles Tar­bey from C21) hid­den in an apart­ment at a se­cret lo­ca­tion in North Syd­ney. Three chal­lenges awaited them at this check­point:

• To cre­ate a video prop­erty re­port for the land­lord us­ing the Bu­sivid sys­tem and as­sess the cor­rect rental amount

• Cre­ate copy and images (in­clud­ing 360 de­gree photos) in a realestate.com.au list­ing for the prop­erty

• A walk-through as­sess­ment of the prop­erty with a risk as­ses­sor, point­ing out po­ten­tial risks to the land­lord and con­ducted a rou­tine in­spec­tion us­ing Main­te­nance Man­ager.

3. Test­ing their tar­get skills with giant slings to ‘Hit their tar­gets’

4. Com­plet­ing a prob­lem-solv­ing change as a team by lo­cat­ing where their per­sonal ‘Monopoly Chance’ Card was lo­cated

5. Find­ing the next lo­ca­tion with a locked tool­box, where yet another puz­zle re­quired com­ple­tion

6. Lastly, show their sales skills by or­gan­is­ing a conga line of strangers with a min­i­mum of 10 peo­ple – and film­ing it as proof. The more peo­ple do­ing the conga, the more points the teams scored.

While all of our teams are win­ners, the Amaz­ing PM Race on the day was won by Har­courts Ade­laide Hills, who showed the high­est level of in­ge­nu­ity, quick think­ing and team­work.
