R&H team cel­e­brate swag of gongs

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS - Shane Ni­chols

IT’S the lit­tle town that could. And the agency that could.

Raine and Horne Port Dou­glas prin­ci­pals Travis Schu­macher and David Cot­ton were cel­e­brat­ing this week with an­other set of gongs from the com­pany’s an­nual state awards where they took out high hon­ours amid com­pe­ti­tion from 83 agen­cies, some in the big­gest mar­kets in the state.

The awards recog­nise the per­for­mance and the ef­forts of sales­peo­ple, prin­ci­pals, prop­erty man­agers and ad­min staff over the pre­vi­ous cal­en­dar year. Raine & Horne Moss­man/Port Dou­glas re­ceived a slew of in­di­vid­ual and staff awards in­clud­ing com­ing sec­ond for gross amount com­mis­sion of sales.

As well the of­fice came fourth in num­ber of sales, Travis Schu­macher ranked fourth in num­ber of sales for a sales­per­son (David Cot­ton took fifth), and Mr Cot­ton came third for dol­lar value by a sales­per­son.

“Ev­ery year since we bought the business we’ve moved up in the rank­ings,” David Cot­ton said.

“We’ve gone from about tenth in the first year, to last year we were third. Now we’re sec­ond, be­hind Toowoomba.”

Mr Cot­ton at­trib­uted much of their suc­cess to the fact “we are fol­low­ing our sys­tems, the sys­tems we put in place, we are pretty strin­gent about that”.

“And we have very good soft­ware be­hind us, with a strong and ac­tive data­base that cer­tainly lets us com­mu­ni­cate very well with our ven­dors and po­ten­tial pur­chasers.”

Mr Schu­macher said “it was a proud ahieve­ment and our next goal is to win it.

“We’re pretty happy to mix­ing it with agen­cies that come from towns with hun­dreds of thou­sands of peo­ple.”
