Judge for this year's Nominees on the Gold Coast. It was a busy time preparing for the Official Women's Day Festival Luncheon and Leadership Awards Ceremony which was held at HOTA (Home of the Arts) Congratulations to all the winners on the day, it was a huge success.
ell it has certainly shaped up to be a busy few months for the Lucy Cole Prestige Properties Sales and Property Management Teams. We have seen an exceptional uplift in the number of property transactions and a record sales month for April with the month of May finishing equally as strong. This is attributed to our team’s honest communication to sellers on the local conditions, buyer feedback and most importantly securing offers from cash buyers in the market.
We were also very proud to be the main sponsors of The Benowa State School 'Mayfair'. Stewart Saunders, John Cole and Richard Keeley who was the MC for the event also supported by many of the Lucy Cole Team attended the Mayfair day. This is the schools biggest fund-raising event of the year and all proceeds raised from this event went to the important air conditioning project for the school classrooms.
Our Property Management division has recorded steady growth in the number of new managements we are attracting by offering prestige levels of customer service and the ability to secure good quality tenants for our valued landlords in the shortest timeframes ensuring our vacancy rates remain low.
To our potential new clients and property owners - the market is changing and with the local economy strengthening we should see buyer activity holding up well throughout the year. With major events happening on the Gold Coast plus the June/July school holidays bringing an influx of buyers from interstate and the local Queensland area. If you are considering selling, now is the time to act. Contact the ‘Action Agents’ to be put in touch with one of our professional and experienced team. Remember it is a free service to have your home appraised by one of our agents. You may be pleasantly surprised of its worth today. The team is available 7 days per week, drop in or call the Broadbeach Mall office, on (07) 5592 1288 or Bundall on (07) 5553 3688 or visit the website: www.lucycole.com.au. We look forward to hearing from you soon.
With the recent election behind us and stability returning to the property market from APRA easing borrowing requirements on lenders we predict an increase in the number of buyers both local and interstate re-emerging and property investors returning to the market. The steady growth of the population on the Gold Coast and tourism on the rise with more Aussies choosing to travel within the country should see our local property market continue to have confidence. On the local community front we have been actively supporting charity fund raisers, sports teams and schools. One of the highlights was being apart of the International Women’s Day Luncheon which is celebrating social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women around the world. Lucy Cole has previously been the recipient of the prestigious IWD Leadership Award and had the honour of being the head ADVERTISING ENQUIRIES Ben Ryan 0432 545 995 email@example.com
