Essence dis­play beats $50 mil­lion es­ti­mates

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Liftout: News -

THERE has been a lot of good news in the western sub­urbs mar­ket­place lately.

Black­burne had more than 500 peo­ple visit its Essence dis­play suite in Clare­mont dur­ing the launch week­end.

It made more than $60 mil­lion worth of sales, ex­ceed­ing man­ag­ing direc­tor Paul Black­burne’s es­ti­mate of $50 mil­lion.

The Prop­erty Ex­change re­ported a “hat trick” week­end re­cently with three new list­ings hit­ting the mar­ket on the Satur­day and by 9pm that night all three were un­der of­fer.

Direc­tor Niki Peinke said mul­ti­ple of­fers were pre­sented and all sales prices were sub­stan­tially over the mar­ket­ing fig­ure.

“It’s not all doom and gloom out there,” she said.

“These are great re­sults but what peo­ple don’t of­ten see is that some­times months of work go into the prop­erty be­fore­hand to get it ready and look­ing great.

“We were work­ing with the own­ers of one prop­erty for about four months be­fore it hit the mar­ket. It was worth it though; it sold for $300,000 over the ad­ver­tised price.”

The ac­co­lades con­tinue for LJ Hooker Dalkeith-clare­mont direc­tor Vivien Yap, who was the only sales rep­re­sen­ta­tive in WA to place in the Real Es­tate Busi­ness (REB) Awards top 100 agents list. She came in at num­ber 14. Mrs Yap has also been nom­i­nated for the 2017 Tel­stra Busi­nesss-woman of the Year Award. Her of­fice was nom­i­nated and has been named as a fi­nal­ist for the REB new of­fice of the year award. ■

There was a strong turnout for Black­burne’s Essence launch.
