Scott re­tains spot in the Club

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

PORT Dou­glas real es­tate agent Matt Scott has re­tained his mem­ber­ship of the LJ Hooker Cap­tain’s Club, rank­ing him in the top 15 per cent of real es­tate agents from LJ Hooker’s 700-plus of­fices through­out Aus­tralia and New Zealand.

It is the sec­ond con­sec­u­tive year Matt has qual­i­fied for this elite group of per­form­ers and he is proud of his achieve­ment.

‘‘In this mar­ket it has been a bit of a chal­lenge which makes it all the more re­ward­ing,’’ he said.

‘‘Per­son­ally, I would love to achieve life mem­ber­ship of the Cap­tain’s Club, which would rep­re­sent 11 con­sec­u­tive years of qual­i­fi­ca­tion.

‘‘To re­main in the top 15 per cent of LJ Hooker achiev­ers for that pe­riod would be some­thing to be very proud of.’’

Matt said there was no se­cret to suc­cess in real es­tate.

‘‘You just need to be up­front and hon­est in your com­mu­ni­ca­tion be­tween ven­dors and buy­ers,’’ he said.

‘‘If you can pro­vide ac­cu­rate facts and fig­ures and work with the ven­dor to plan the best mar­ket­ing strat­egy and set the right price and then have reg­u­lar com­mu­ni­ca­tions with the ven­dor and buy­ers then the hard work is done.’’

Matt said there were some en­cour­ag­ing signs in the lo­cal mar­ket with im­proved in­ter­est in all price brack­ets.

‘‘ In the past few months we’ve had in­stances of mul­ti­ple of­fers on the same prop­erty which I haven’t seen for a few years as more life­style buy­ers re-en­ter the mar­ket,’’ he said.

LJ Hooker Port Dou­glas di­rec­tor Michael Sam­son said that this achieve­ment is in recog­ni­tion of Matt’s con­tin­ued achieve­ments in real es­tate sales over the past 12 months.

‘‘Matt Scott is one of the best in the LJ Hooker net­work with his high sta­tus re­in­forced through the ex­cep­tional sales re­sults he has shown for his clients,’’ he said.

‘‘He is a great ex­am­ple of how sales prop­erty spe­cial­ists should op­er­ate.’’
