Dou­ble de­light for real es­tate agent

Seymour Telegraph - - NEWS - Sey­mour’s Janelle Puppa Real Es­tate re­cently won agency of the year, and Ms Puppa also won Agent of the Year.

Af­ter scor­ing dream sales for clients across the dis­trict, Janelle Puppa Real Es­tate has had its own win.

The lo­cal agency re­cently won Sey­mour’s Agency of the Year and Agent of the Year (Janelle Puppa) from real es­tate rat­ings web­site Rate My Agent.

And all this af­ter just 15 months as a busi­ness.

‘‘I was a lit­tle bit shocked,’’ Ms Puppa said.

‘‘The award is based on re­views and peo­ple’s opin­ions, not just on how many sales we’ve achieved — so qual­ity, not quan­tity.

‘‘That’s why we’re so happy with these awards. We strive to be good com­mu­ni­ca­tors, achieve the best price for the ven­dors and get buy­ers to where they need to be.

‘‘We’re not into reach­ing tar­gets, be­cause you can’t force sales. It’s all about be­ing pa­tient and work­ing closely with peo­ple.’’

Ms Puppa has been in the busi­ness for 18 years, ini­tially sell­ing houses through­out Mel­bourne.

‘‘I en­joy work­ing with peo­ple, and com­mu­ni­ca­tion is a big part of this job. If any­thing, it’s work­ing with com­put­ers I strug­gle with the most,’’ she said.

‘‘While ev­ery sale has been amaz­ing in its own way, the first sale I made af­ter open­ing my own busi­ness was the most re­ward­ing.’’

And the wins for Janelle Puppa Real Es­tate con­tin­ued through­out the dis­trict, with Avenel and Nagam­bie agent Bon­nie Gaehl scoop­ing Agency of the Year for Avenel.
