More awards for Team Jensen
Unique Realty Professionals need more wall space for their latest collection of significant shiny plaques. Their sales team did well recently at the Professionals annual award ceremony in Auckland
Seventeen awards in total were handed out ceremoniously to the delighted local Manawatu Professionals agents. Professionals new Palmerston North sales manager Warren McGrath says it has been a privilege to inherit such a dedicated team and suggests a disproportionate number of awards have come to this region considering the size of the local market. ‘‘As a team of 22 residential sales people we’ve done exceptionally well. We’ve got a very strong foundation, a huge client base with many repeat sales and referrals.’’
Team Richard Jensen won Top Sales Team NZ, a great surprise and a real pleasure for the fourmember team of Tania Young, Richard Jensen, Carole Hoffman and Sarah Walls. Their hard work and dedication saw them competing against the Professionals Auckland office where they listed and sold more houses than Professionals Point Chevalier’s eight sales agents.
‘‘We’ve got a really good team going,’’ says Richard. ‘‘We complement each other as we have different styles and skills but we work together well, getting the job done quickly and efficiently.’’
Tania, Richard and Carole are the sales agents, supported by administrator Sarah’s efficiency for everything flowing smoothly. ‘‘There’s a lot to do behind the scenes,’’ says Tania. ‘‘Lots of research, paperwork and accurate record keeping so we’re very grateful to Sarah for keeping everything coordinated.’’
Team Jensen also secured Top Sales Team of the Year Central Region and Richard won the 100 Million Dollar Club Award, Top 2 Per Cent Properties, plus Top 2 Per Cent Sales Award and 500 Sales Club Award. ‘‘At the end of the day, we’re very proud of our achievements but we’re part of a larger team and winning awards doesn’t change who we are,’’ says Richard. ‘‘We’re people from varied walks of life and points of view, working together for our clients.’’
Richard and Tania have worked together in a business partnership for 12 years, almost six of these at Professionals. Richard was a joiner and Tania a registered nurse. Carole has been in real estate for 15 years and joined Team Richard Jensen 15 months ago. Sarah has been their major admin support person for the last three years. The nicest thing Team Jensen has experienced since winning their Top NZ Sales Team Award, apart from proud partners and children, has been the sincere congratulations from other Professionals offices. ‘‘It’s very humbling,’’ says Richard, ‘‘it makes the long hours all worthwhile.’’
Professionals brand originated in Australia and there are around 60 Professionals agencies that work as a co-operative, enjoying a high profile and a significant portion of the market.
