Ac­co­lades for Har­courts’ Ue­ber­gang

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - News -

Hor­sham real es­tate agent Jock Ue­ber­gang has won in­dus­try recog­ni­tion at Har­courts Vic­to­ria’s quar­terly awards cer­e­mony in Mel­bourne.

Mr Ue­ber­gang col­lected three awards at the cer­e­mony, which cel­e­brates the achieve­ments of Har­courts’ high­est per­form­ing sales con­sul­tants, prop­erty man­agers and sales of­fices through­out Vic­to­ria.

Har­courts Hor­sham prin­ci­pal Mark Clyne said Mr Ue­ber­gang won a gold pin and bronze award, both for sales achieve­ments.

“He was also named as a topthree lister, mak­ing him the num­ber-three lister in the state – which is pretty good for us in the bush, con­sid­er­ing the dif­fer­ence in prop­erty prices,” he said.

“Jock has been with us for two years and he’s cer­tainly grown into a very good real es­tate agent.

“He’s a well-loved agent and de­liv­ers re­sults. It’s one thing to be a nice guy and well liked, but you need to be able to de­liver re­sults as well.

“In two years he’s done what some guys in the in­dus­try have taken 10 years to do.”

Mr Clyne said he liked to joke real es­tate was in Mr Ue­ber­gang’s blood.

“His fa­ther was a real es­tate agent for a while and his grand­fa­ther had a real es­tate agency in Hor­sham. It’s nearly in his DNA,” he said.

Hor­sham do­mes­tic vi­o­lence sur­vivor and White Rib­bon ad­vo­cate Si­mone O’brien was guest speaker at the awards cer­e­mony.

Mrs O’brien is an am­bas­sador for Har­courts Foun­da­tion’s Walk A Mile in Their Shoes cam­paign.

On Septem­ber 1, hun­dreds of Har­courts staff, fam­ily, friends and com­mu­nity groups will join White Rib­bon Aus­tralia to take a stand against men’s vi­o­lence against women.

“The Walk A Mile con­cept will see men march down a street in Mel­bourne in high heels to see what it’s like to be on the other side and raise aware­ness of White Rib­bon,” Mr Clyne said.

“Si­mone is a fan­tas­tic speaker. It’s not un­til she tells you her story that you can un­der­stand what hap­pened.

“She can’t change it, but she can make peo­ple aware of the is­sue and try to pre­vent it from hap­pen­ing to oth­ers.

“We’re proud to sup­port White Rib­bon. We are one of three com­pa­nies en­dorsed to sell White Rib­bon mer­chan­dise.”

Peo­ple can buy White Rib­bon mer­chan­dise at Har­courts Hor­sham, 31 O’cal­laghan Pa­rade.
