veryone needs a little guidance. At school and university we have people to teach us, lead us and advise us. If we do an apprenticeship we have, sometimes for years, a dedicated adviser to show us the way. As junior members of the workplace, we learn our craft from older, more experienced workmates. It’s funny, then, that as we get older, we forget to ask for help. We think we don’t need guidance, even if our lives or our careers aren’t heading in the direction we’d like. This week Leigh Robshaw explores the concept of the mentor, and f nds that there are people out there more than willing to take another’s advice, and sometimes pay very handsomely for it. Leigh has spoken to three such people who guide and inspire Sunshine Coasters. If you are feeling like you need a

] helping hand, hopefully we will inspire you to f nd out more. Speaking of those who are here to help, this week in My Property Preview, I take a look at the role of a property manager when it comes to renting out your investment home. Think you can manage it yourself? Turn to page 34 and think again. It’s the last Friday of the month, so we have our special good food guide. It’s also Mother’s Day soon, and nothing says ‘I love you’ like taking mum out for lunch (f owers and chocolates are usually a winner, too). Anyway, that’s over on page 26. And in agenda this week we look at the smartphone and its place in the wedding ceremony. Social media follows us everywhere, into restaurants and on holidays, but do we really need to see ‘the kiss’ appearing on Facebook? Head over to page 20 for that one.

DO YOU NEED A

MENTOR?

PREVIEW At some stage in our lives we all need some guidance. If you’re feeling a little lost, maybe a mentor is the answer. WORDS Leigh Robshaw

f you think achieving incredible success and happiness in your professional or personal life is beyond your reach, do what the world’s most successful people do and hire a mentor or life coach. What separates those who thrive from those who merely survive is the choice to step out of the daily grind, take a look at what’s not working, and do whatever is needed to achieve their goals. A mentor or life coach is invaluable in this process, because they can offer the life experience of someone who is already where you want to be, help you work out a strategy for moving forward and importantly, hold you accountable. Mooloolah sales trainer and growth coach Peter Gilchrist says, “One of the things I f nd is that top people just routinely seek out coaches and mentors. I have a friend who pays seven or eight mentors at a time. Top people use us and know how to come towards us. Their bar is set at that level. “If you join a netball team you get a coach, if you join a cricket team you get a coach. If you go into business, why would you not take on a coach?” Gilchrist began his career in real estate and now

coaches top salespeople and sportspeople, as well as teenagers. “If you want to improve your business, you have to work on yourself,” he says. “Business is so busy. It’s important to just take a breath, stop and sit, and check how you’re feeling about where you’re going, what’s happening for you right now. “I like to think I’m a good bridge, because I’m really practical as well. I can coach people on marketing, branding, sales, prospecting and getting results, and that’s what everyone is after, but it starts with the base – and the base is you, so we get that right f rst and work from there.” Buderim author and businesswoman Rachael Bermingham achieved enormous success as co-writer of the bestselling 4 Ingredients books, and now runs her own publishing company, Bermingham Books, as well as mentoring women on a daily basis. In her latest book, Savvy, she shares her personal success strategies, but says working one-on-one with a mentor is paramount for those wishing to fast-forward success. “Mentors give you a great game plan, it’s very strategic and tailor made, with timelines and benchmarks,” says Bermingham. “They can get you M Y W EEK LY PREVIEW.C OM .A U

“There are people out there who are just getting by every day, when they could be phenomenally successful if they shifted their mindset. They often just need to tweak a few things ” Rachael Bermingham happen automatically. Most people never took the kit out of the shipping box. “As a coach, my number one job is to hold people accountable. Stay focused and you’re going to f nish it. You have to do the personal development f rst or you won’t do what it takes.” Gilchrist also cites personal development as key, so he teaches meditation and uses techniques like NLP (neurolinguistic programming), Gestalt therapy and hypnosis to delve into the deeper emotional issues that hold people back. “You have to be prepared to do some work and make change, not do what you’ve always done, and that can be confronting,” he says. Bermingham mentors women only, and says one of their main problems is lack of conf dence, so she works with them to change the way they view themselves and their abilities. “I have women all around the globe who have incredible Peter Gilchrist skills, but the amount of times I’ve had a woman say to me, ‘I’d really “We have so much distraction and input like to start a business, or go out on my own, coming in from so many directions now and it’s or write a book, but I don’t feel I have enough getting worse with Facebook and YouTube, so credibility.

A top mentor or coach can charge early ’90s. He says 25 million people bought hundreds of dollars an hour, and you might Robbins’ Personal Power tapes, but only two speak with them daily to begin with, then per cent of people actually listened to them. drop back to weekly or monthly, depending “People thought when the box showed up on your progress. they would open it and everything would from A to C super quickly and cost effectively. They take you through each step and at the same time, they work with your head to keep you fully focused and fully inspired.” Most of us would like to be better at something. You might want to earn more money, grow your business, improve your relationships, get f t or master a language. So what stops us achieving our goals? According to Buderim coach Kurek Ashley, who coaches Hollywood celebrities, rock stars, Olympic gold medallists and top executives, the two most common obstacles to success are lack of focus and lack of follow-through.

“if you join a netball team you get a coach, if you join a cricket team you get a coach. if you go into business, why would you not take on a coach?”

“I’ve got people I’ve coached for 15 years and they’re incredibly successful – multimillionaires,” says Gilchrist. “You’ve got to look at it and say, ‘If I engage this person for a year and I end up paying them $15,000, what effect will it have on my life and my business?’ I’d say take a punt, get started and don’t lock yourself into long contracts. You know within yourself whether you’re moving, whether things are changing for you. You should know quite quickly.” “For some people it’s a real stretch to pay for it,” says Ashley. “Those people get the biggest result, because that investment means more to them.” Ashley says it’s important to have respect for your coach and be willing to be “mouldable” or “guidable” by them. “I don’t do it for my client, they have to do it,” he says. “It’s not a democracy, it’s a dictatorship. That’s where the results are. I know the right questions to ask in order to f gure out a strategy. Everybody should have a coach. I have coaches, too. Your wife or your husband, they’re not really supposed to be your coach. If they’re going to hold you accountable, you’re going to have problems in your relationship. You need somebody you respect and when they tell you, you have to do this, you’ll do it. “Most people have stagnated, whereas successful people keep building, keep evolving. They understand the natural order in the universe is for everything to seek its highest potential. In life, you either evolve or your dissolve.” Ashley says people are a lot closer to their goals and dreams than they know they are, but there’s often just a small gap holding them back. “It’s not crazy, what you have to do. If you think about a gold medal, it’s 1/100th of a second faster than anybody else on the f eld. That’s all,” he says. “People think it’s very hard to go from the place they’re at to the place they want to be at,” says Bermingham. “They think it’s too big, too unachievable, it’s never going to happen. But it’s so easy when you have somebody to show you how to do it. You look back and go, ‘Wow, why did I baulk at that for so long?’” M Y W EEK LY PREVIEW \ A PRIL 2 6 , 2 0 1 3 [ 7 ]

A HOME WHERE THE HEART IS

A

$1.2 million housing project for people with disabilities will be constructed at Pelican Waters as part of the Endeavour Foundation’s self-funded At Home With Choices project. Endeavour Foundation CEO David Barbagallo was joined last week by clients, carers and Caloundra MP Mark McArdle to turn the f rst sod at the development site, which will be home to two f ve-bedroom houses. Barbagallo says the new houses will be universally accessible and equipped with f ve-kilowatt solar power systems to reduce carbon emissions. “Assistance living technologies such as entry and exit sensors, help alarms and panic buttons will promote greater independence for residents,” he says. “Including the land purchase, construction and furnishings, these two houses represent a $1.2 million commitment in the region by the Endeavour Foundation. This year we expect to spend around $8 million on building and refurbishing houses and services.”

David Barbagallo, Heather Christie, Mark McArdle, Tony Vidler and Caloundra RSL manager Steve Fromont McArdle says the Endeavour Foundation has been an institution on the Sunshine Coast for nearly 50 years, providing accommodation, in-home support, post-school education and day services. “They do a phenomenal job in the community with more than 430 placements in the region already.” He commends the Endeavour Foundation for its commitment to the region and says the State Government will provide ongoing support funds for residents of the new Pelican Waters houses.

Five events across the Coast will raise awareness about domestic and family violence prevention as part of the State Government’s Make the Call campaign. Centacare/Scope domestic violence team leader Karen Marsh says each event will carry the united message Our Community Says No to Violence. The events, which range from marches to family days, will be held throughout Domestic and Family Violence Prevention Month in May. “It’s really important because the more awareness we have the more we can prevent it,” Marsh says. Centacare is seeing an increase in family violence cases across the Coast and Marsh says it’s important that people understand they can say no. Communities Minister Tracy Davis says domestic and family violence is not just physical abuse but also includes controlling behaviours such as stalking, threats, intimidation and isolation. “These behaviours can quite often be unseen and can quickly turn into physical abuse, which can tragically result in serious injury or death,” she says. “From 2006 to 2012, 44 per cent of all homicides

in Queensland, or on average of 23 deaths a year, resulted from domestic and family violence.” The Make the Call campaign is designed to help people overcome the social barriers that discourage them from seeking help and urges friends and family, colleagues and neighbours to make the call if they sense someone needs help. The f rst of the Coast awareness raising events will take place on May 1 and will begin with a march from the Alexandra Headland memorial to the Loo With a View at Mooloolaba. Other events will be held at Caloundra, Maleny, Tewantin and Gympie throughout the month. If you are seeking information or help call Centacare on 5430 9300 or the DV Connect Womensline on 1800 811 811 or Mensline on 1800 600 636.

ueenslanders will be exempt from wearing helmets while cycling on the basis of religious beliefs. Transport Minister Scott Emerson says the laws are expected to be in place by the end of the year and follow the lead of Victoria, South Australian, and Western Australia. Emerson says people will not have to apply for exemption and a commonsense approach will be used. The laws won’t extend to motorbikes or mopeds. The change comes after a Queensland Sikh successfully challenged a f ne last month because his religion requires him to wear a turban. Emerson jumped on a Segway recently and cruised around footpaths and bikeways of Brisbane, as well as Parliament House. He has announced the twowheeled, self-balancing vehicles will soon be allowed greater access to public pathways. AAP

THE WEEK THAT WAS

TOP BULLS

SHOULD YOU GO FOR GOLD?

Troy Derwin is from Ord Minnett in Buderim

hat an interesting week it has been for our favourite metal. It all started on Friday April 12, when the price of gold fell four per cent. That was bad enough, but then we got a total capitulation last Monday with the price dropping 10 per cent to $US1352 an ounce. That is the biggest percentage fall in the precious metal since 1980. Why, you may ask? Well, one of the more plausible reasons, is the mass of money that was f owing into gold exchange traded funds (ETFs) has now started to be withdrawn. Second, news out of Europe

[ 18 ] MY W EEKLY P RE VIE W \ AP RIL 26, 2013

18.indd 1

suggesting that Cyprus may look to sell its gold reserves to shore up its own balance sheet exacerbated the woes. Some pundits believe that it may not only be Cyprus that will need to sell gold to recapitalise sovereign balance sheets. Third, and probably of equal importance, is technically related selling due to ‘stop-loss’ orders. Selling begets more selling. The interesting thing about the sell-off is that gold bugs (those who like gold) will tell you that gold normally rises during periods of global uncertainty. Furthermore, they will say that gold is an alternative currency, a store of wealth, and during periods of currency devaluation (quantitative easing or money printing), it should rise. Not only has the gold price fallen sharply, but gold equities have also signif cantly underperformed the physical price of gold. Regardless of the reason for the sell-off, the question now becomes whether it is a good time to buy gold stocks.

Interestingly, our research team initiated coverage on a handful of junior gold miners last week, with an overall bullish recommendation. Foolhardy? Well, bear in mind their thesis is based on a long-term gold price forecast of $US1300 an ounce, compared to current levels of $US1396 and the average over the last two years of more than $US1600 an ounce. So, if you are brave and have a long-term horizon, gold stocks may have a place as part of an overall balanced portfolio. With the six new gold stocks under coverage offering an estimated 65 per cent upside to their target prices (on average), they are certainly worthy of consideration. As always, we suggest you speak to your f nancial adviser for further information. Troy Derwin is an authorised representative of Ord Minnett Ltd, AFS licence 237121.

Married to PREVIEW How would you feel about your wedding guests tweeting or Instagramming pics of your special day before you do?

B

ecca Dilley remembers the first time she saw newlyweds leaning in for the traditional kiss while arms rose from the sea of guests – holding iPads aloft to record the moment. She says she still finds it hilarious. As a wedding photographer, Dilley watches with some concern as social media are changing a ritual that’s mostly about the bride and groom to an event that potentially cedes control to anyone with a smartphone. On a day planned down to the f nest detail, social media allow for random acts of mindlessness. Wedding websites and magazines now include tips for dealing with well-meaning tweeters, stalkerish iPhone sharers, giddy Facebook posters or irrepressible Instagrammers. Some couples embrace technology with gusto, while others wonder how to keep their vows from going viral. Social media are the new “plus one” at weddings, causing couples to consider how to manage the technology so that friends

social media and relatives don’t morph into Guestzillas. Wedding planner Alyson Newquist of Bash Collective became a believer in value-added social media after her own nuptials. Given the lag time for professional photos, it was fun for her to see friends’ photos posted online the next day. “There is a level of satisfaction of going on Facebook and being tagged a hundred times,” she says. “What social media is doing to weddings is extending the space-time continuum in a way that’s pleasant for many people.” Still, she adds, “We’re in a sort of no-man’s land in terms of social media etiquette.” US retailer David’s Bridal annually asks brides what’s on their minds. This year? Social media. Almost six in 10 newlywed women said it’s crucial to have social media rules at a wedding. Slightly more than half say the bride and groom must be the f rst to post wedding photos to a social media site. And six in 10 brides admit they’d forbidden bridesmaids from uploading photos of them in their gowns before the ceremony. Many couples draw a distinction between the solemnity of the ceremony and the more celebratory reception. In any case, you need to make your wishes known, says Laura Barclay, an etiquette consultant. “Put a notice in the program itself – not at the top, at the bottom – noting that this is an ‘unplugged’ ceremony, which is the term people are

using,” she says. “Or you can have the [celebrant] a moment to which the couple has given a lot of ask the guests to silence their electronics.” thought. “I would question why you’re taking Unplugged goes for kids, too. “This should be photos instead of really being there,” she says. part of their development, to understand proper Technology is here to stay.

With stunning views of Mooloolaba Beach, One Up Bar is a cool place to sip a cocktail, dine on excellent food and enjoy international-standard live performances.

MEZZE BAR, MOOLOOLABA

CALA LUNA, MAROOCHYDORE

Mezze Bar is undoubtedly one of the Sunshine Coast’s best-kept secrets. Though this venue is well-known to locals, it could be easy to miss if you were unfamiliar to the area. Tucked away at the end of Brisbane Road, its true warmth and character can’t be gauged from the outside.

Maroochydore’s Cala Luna will be under renovation from May 13 to June 2, but you can still take your mama in for an Italian-style Mother’s Day dinner on Saturday May 11.

Mezze Bar has one of the best cocktail and sangria lists on the coast, and as you would expect from a Mediterranean-style bar, there is an excellent selection of imported Spanish, Greek and Italian wines and beers.

Cala Luna (meaning Moon Bay) offers traditional Italian food from Sardinia, Veneto and Friuli – everything is freshly made of the premises by Owner Osvaldo and his wife Rita is a gorgeous Italian host.

The modern Mediterranean menu with an extensive selection of delicious and tasty tapas is one of the few places on the Sunshine Coast that will cook until late.

A favourite dish is cannelloni all’anatra – homemade cannelloni f lled with a blend of fresh duck, porcini mushrooms, fresh herbs oven baked with béchamel and fresh tomato salsa. Or try the linguine di mare – fresh seafood, garlic, parsley, extra virgin olive oil and grated bottarga (salted f sh roe).

STRAWBERRY SALAD 6 fresh strawberries diced 45 ml strawberry liquor 15 ml balsamic vinegar 10g icing sugar

METHOD

Melt white chocolate in a bowl and set aside. Place sugar with 100ml of water in a saucepan and simmer until the sugar turns into a thick syrup. Place egg yolks in a mixing machine and whisk on high. Slowly add all the thick sugar syrup until mixture is light and f uffy. Fold through the melted white chocolate. Add the cream and Malibu and whisk until the cream reaches soft peaks. Pour into dariole moulds or a brûlée mould and place in the freezer overnight. To make the salad, add all the ingredients together. Place three-quarters of the white chocolate parfait in hot water to loosen it out of the mould and turn out onto a plate. Place the strawberry salad next to the parfait and serve. Recipe courtesy of Montegos

CHEF PROFILE Adam Lugg, executive chef, Montegos

Montegos’ executive chef Adam Lugg began washing dishes at the age of 13 at a restaurant at Mollymook on the NSW south coast. After a year, the chef recognised his passion for cooking and started teaching him how to make entrees and desserts. By the age of 16, he had started his apprenticeship and was on the way to a brilliant career. His apprenticeship was at a restaurant called Cookaburras. “It was one of the best restaurants on the south coast of New South Wales,” says Lugg. During that time, he won a number of

cooking competitions and when he f nished his apprenticeship, decided to try his hand at running his own kitchen. “At 20 I was head chef at Millard’s Cottage in Ulladulla, and it was then I realised I wasn’t learning anything. I sent my resume to all the best restaurants in Canberra and a couple weeks later, I was working at a chef hat restaurant called the Chairman and Yip, an Asian fusion restaurant in the centre of Canberra.” Following a stint in London, where he opened his own award-winning restaurant, Lugg returned to Australia, working at

Kingsleys and other top restaurants in Brisbane. Having conquered Brisbane’s dining scene, he moved to the Sunshine Coast to work at the Loose Goose, then took the head chef’s position at Montegos. “My favourite foods keep changing,” he says. “As it gets colder, I like to cook cheaper cuts of meat for long periods of time to really get them tender and full of f avour. Montegos is special because of the team of chefs we have employed there. Every one of the kitchen brigade is extremely passionate about food and I think this shows in the product we serve.”

MAKE/MODEL MERCEDES-BENZ C250 SPORT COUPE DETAILS Two-door, four-seat sports coupe with four-cylinder turbocharged engine and automatic transmission. TECH STUFF 1.8-litre turbo-charged four-cylinder in-line petrol engine produces 150kW@5500rpm, 310Nm@2300rpm; seven-speed automatic transmission with manual shift function and wheelmounted gearshift paddles.

TAKING PERFECTION TO A NEW LEVEL WORDS Peter Atkinson, AAP IMAGES AAP

W

e’re all striving to be our best. But sometimes, there’s not a whole lot of room for improvement. Take Mercedes-Benz’s all-conquering C-Class, for example. First in sedan form, and more recently with a swoopy coupe, the German mid-sizer has generally swept all before it – lifting Mercedes right back into the thick of a category perennially dominated by BMW’s 3-Series. It was even good enough to hold its own when an all-new version of the Beemer was rolled out last year. Most judges continued to rate the

baby Benz marginally ahead of its newer, fresher rival in the most recent round of best-car awards. But as we know, those who stand still quickly find themselves going backwards, so Benz has been forced to come up with another round of improvements on the C-Class. The answer is a new Sport version of the volume-selling C250, which delivers a slightly sharper, edgier version of the car that has already brought a sharper, edgier buyer into the Benz fold. The differences are fairly subtle at first glance, but impressive nonetheless.

Most of the improvements are beneath the surface – a touch more performance, a smidgin better handling and slightly better brakes. This Sport package will be restricted to two-door versions of the C250 – which can be had in either turbo petrol or turbo-diesel configuration. As a consolation to sedan and wagon buyers, Mercedes will also offer an upgraded version of the AMG Sports body-kit package on those, although they don’t get the full suite of suspension, exhaust, transmission and engine-management continued over>

FEATURES 11 airbags including front, driver’s knee, side and pelvis bags for driver and passenger plus window bags for front and rear seat passengers; satellite navigation, leather trim, dual-zone climate control air-conditioning; Bluetooth and iPod connectivity with MP3 input; electric seats, windows and mirrors. THIRST 7l/100km (official combined figure). VERDICT Benz’s best gets a little bit better. BOTTOM LINE From $77,250 (plus on-roads).

<from previous page tweaks that are offered on the C250 Sport Coupe. Basically, the changes on the sedan and wagon are more cosmetic; on the coupe they mean improved handling and acceleration – perhaps in keeping with their slightly racier appearance. The C250 is not the cheapest version of the C-Class but is the most popular – and is in fact the German brand’s most popular model in Australia. For a car costing upwards of $70-grand that’s no small feat. We tested the C250 Sport coupe in petrol form but there’s also a C250 diesel, which is more powerful but probably gains a bit less from the performance tweaks. For an additional spend of $8150, the Sport package brings AMG sports suspension, sports brakes with larger discs, speed-sensitive sports steering, sports exhaust with a sound generator, revised engine mapping and a tweaked transmission with faster shift times in sport and manual mode. Inside, there’s some nifty red stitching on the black leather sports seats, and some slightly garish red seatbelts. The result is a car that looks, and most importantly feels, markedly quicker and edgier in just about every way than the standard version. Ride is a little harsher than the standard C-Class, and the beefed up engine note adds an

appropriate soundtrack to what is a very engaging little machine. It can even be had with a unique matt paint f nish exclusive to this model. If the Coupe doesn’t f t your style, you can get similar looks, if not quite the same performance, from the AMG Sports Package PLUS. The kit costs $6350 on top of the $69,100 starting price for the C250. What doesn’t change, of course, are those things that have established the C-Class as a volume seller for Benz – great looks, beautifully resolved ride and a classy interior. Our C250 Sport Coupe’s 1.8-litre turbocharged engine is unlikely to challenge its potent sibling, the 6.3-litre V8-powered C63 AMG, but at less than half the price, its 150 kilowatts and 310 Newton metres are surprisingly adequate. The engine loves to rev and the transmission changes give it more opportunity to do so. The seven-speed auto adds some quite aggressive shift patterns and a noticeable blip on the throttle on downshifts – further tempting the driver to squeeze a little more out of this fetching little machine. It gets the same excellent dash layout we’ve come to admire in the C-Class, including an instrument cluster with a colour graphic display, colour sat-nav centre screen and voice-activation system for accessing everything from navigation

It’s Jetta season.

controls to changing the radio station. The coupe gets seats with integrated head restraints and individual bucket seats for rear passengers, meaning the coupe’s capacity is four people. My wife had only one gripe with the coupe – those sweeping rear pillars that enhance its graceful shape also block out a fair bit of rear vision. She’d much prefer the sedan, thank you. For an additional cost you can have a blindspot warning system in your exterior mirrors and a reversing camera that partly mitigates that issue. Occupant safety is a feature; the Benz gets a staggering 11 airbags, plus seatbelt pre-tensioners and force-limiters in all seats. The lengthy Mercedes-Benz options list also includes attention assist (with a lane-departure warning) and Distronic Plus – a radar-guided cruise control that sets a constant distance between you and the vehicle in front. Identical in name and looks, but not in performance or thirst, is the C250CDI, with a twin-turbocharged 2.1-litre diesel, which pumps out a brawny 500 Newton metres of torque while sipping just 5.1 litres per 100 kilometres. In standard form it probably out-muscles the petrol version, although the tweaks of the Sport model perhaps tip the balance the other way. Either way, it’s a case of the best getting better.

COMMODORE WINS BEST CAR sophistication, the Commodore took the award ahead of the Ford Territory, launched in 2004, and the BA Ford Falcon XR6 turbo, launched in 2002. “More than a good honest car, this was the Commodore that proved, beyond doubt, that Australia’s got talent,” the judges said. The judges also favoured modern Australian cars in their top 10, although the original Holden from 1948 was ranked seventh and the 1934 Ford Utility ranked tenth. Also in the top 10 were the revamped Holden Monaro from 2002 in fourth spot and the legendary 1966 Ford Falcon XR GT at f ve. The only non-Ford or Holden to make the cut was the 1971 Chrysler Valiant Charger. The winning vehicle had to be worthy of the title ‘great’, not just when it was built but also in 2013. “Some old cars made the list, but the fact is that we’re making the best cars we’ve ever made right now, and those cars are truly world class,” the magazine reports.

ustralian motoring magazine Wheels celebrated its 60th anniversary by naming the best Australian cars of all time – and Holden’s VE Commodore topped the charts. Cited by Wheels editor Stephen Corby as “a step ahead, in terms of quality and design”, the VE Commodore was the only car in the f nal shortlist to get unanimous approval from the Wheels judging panel. Introduced in 2006 and with what the judges described as core virtues of strength, spaciousness and

Polestar Volvo arrives The Volvo S60 – the first road carr to be produced by Polestar – hass arrived. The car has been developed from m 17 years of motorsport experience and shares DNA with the 508bhp Volvo S60 Polestar Concept Car. “We have built a car that we, as car enthusiasts, want to drive,” says Christian Dahl, managing director of Polestar. “This is a driver’s car, bringing out the very best of the already competent Volvo S60 chassis with our experience and technology from motorsport. “We received a fantastic response to our Volvo C30 and S60 Polestar concept cars, so we’re happy to now introduce our f rst production car to the Australian market. This is an important step forward for Polestar, one that promises an exciting future.” A limited production run has been developed exclusively for the Australian market as a pilot project, with the f rst cars being delivered to customers in late June.

Introduction of the Volvo S60 Polestar to further markets is under investigation pending the response of the Australian introduction. “The Australian market for performance cars is, and has always been, strong,” says Matt Braid, managing director of Volvo Car Australia. “We are delighted to be able to offer our customers the Volvo S60 Polestar, a car more than capable of getting into the thick of the action in this competitive segment of the market.

HANDS PREVIEW Managing a rental property is a big job. As a new investment property owner, MPP tells you why you need to get a manager on board. WORDS Jemma Pearson

f you’ve just taken possession of your new investment property, you might be wondering what the first step is. If you take the advice of the Real Estate Institute of Queensland, the first thing you should be doing is engaging the services of a property manager. But surely being a landlord is something you can DIY? If it’s just a matter of collecting rent every week and f xing those little things that go wrong around the house, why pay someone else to do it? Well, there are many good reasons why. Karen Stehr from Next Property Group has been in the property management industry for almost 25 years. She is passionate about her job and with almost 200 properties on the Next rent roll, she’s kept busy conducting open homes, managing paperwork and chasing up unpaid rent. For those who are considering going it alone and managing their rental properties themselves, she has a few warnings. “Just the legislation is scary,” Stehr says. “I have just taken over one where the owner was managing the property themselves and the tenant was 47 days behind in their rent. What do you do when things go wrong?” And it is when things go wrong that DIY property managers become unstuck. James Smith* is a property owner who has learned this the hard way. A few years ago he bought a property in Maroochydore and advertised for tenants straight away. “I met these prospective tenants at the house and my gut said maybe not, as they didn’t have references, but they seemed like battlers and down to earth so I thought why not.” There were many reasons why not. “After a few hassles with rent not coming in, I handed it over to

a property manager,” Smith says. “The tenants didn’t seem to appreciate that.” It was months of more rent arrears, several abusive phone calls to Smith and plenty of disturbed nights for the neighbours due to f ghts that broke out in the home, before the property manager was able to evict the tenants. While it cost Smith several thousand dollars in lost rent and the eviction process, he was reasonably lucky. Apart from a few holes in the walls and a very dirty home, the tenants left the property relatively unscathed. Smith now has tenants in place that pay rent on time, care for the house as if it were their own and get on with the neighbours. So really the question isn’t ‘should I get a property manager?’ But ‘which one should I get?’. Stehr has this advice for new property investors looking for a manager: “My biggest recommendation is f nd someone who has been in the industry for more than two years, who knows the area and knows the market. The Sunshine Coast market is very f ckle.” A good property manager, she adds, is someone who thinks of the property as their own. “Find someone who really does care,” she says. It’s a small price to pay for peace of mind. Stehr says that on the Coast the average charge for engaging a property manager is f ve to nine per cent. “I try hard to get the highest [rent I am able to] and then charge 7.5 per cent of whatever the rent is plus GST,” she says, adding many agencies around the Coast charge about 8.5 per cent. “For 30 or 40 dollars a week, why would do it yourself?” Stehr asks, “And [the cost] is tax deductible.” *Name has been changed M Y W EEK LY PREVIEW.C OM .A U

How to choose a property manager:

I have just taken over one where the owner was managing the property themselves and the tenant was 47 days behind in their rent. What do you do when things go wrong?

• It’s usually a good idea to go with an agency that has a dedicated rental department or property manager, rather than one that just gets the receptionist to handle the rent roll. • Head to an open homes conducted by the property manager to see how professionally he or she goes, and how well the manager answers queries and presents the home. • Meet the prospective manager in your rental property and see what kind of advice that person offers. If he or she simply says “yes, I’ll manage it for you”, without looking at the property and offering advice on how best to present it to tenants, keep looking. • Ask the manager how the agency handles checks for prospective tenants – how well are tenants screened for credit worthiness and rental history? • Ask about the systems in place if something goes wrong, such as the tenants not paying rent or not adhering to lease conditions. • Ask the property manager how many other properties she or he has on the books. If the agency has too many, will the staff have time to adequately look after yours?

Karen Stehr

What does a property manager do? Qualified property managers know not just the marketplace and the area they work in but also the relevant legislation that covers property management and paperwork that is required to rent a home in Queensland. According to the REIQ, property managers conduct many activities, including: “negotiating rents and leases on a lessor’s behalf; signing and completing all documentation required by legislation; attending to maintenance issues, organising quotes, attending to the payment of maintenance accounts; completing routine inspections; disbursing funds to the lessor monthly or twice monthly; providing a written f nancial statement of rental funds; and completing f nal inspections when tenants vacate.”

While the skills of a property manager really come into their own when things go wrong – such as the tenant not paying rent or a major maintenance issue that damages the home – even those smoothly running tenancies require a property manager to get it right. The legislation that covers property management can be a minef eld and non-compliance can result in f nancial penalties for owners. There are rules and regulations governing how rental bonds are handled, how maintenance issues are dealt with, rules regarding access to the property and what to do about emergency repairs.

TENANTED PROPERTIES

Loretta’s RENTAL

WRAP UP

Selling Tenanted Properties! In this edition I wanted to point out the importance of having your managing agent sell your tenanted property. They are the best agent for the job. In my experience choosing an agent that is interested in the relationship of everyone involved is essential. Look for the agent that takes into account what’s best for all parties, not the ones just interested in earning a commission. If your managing agent is doing the job right they should always have a relationship already formed with your tenant, which makes it so much easier to sell your investment property with a tenant in place. It makes sense that keeping a tenant in place on a fixed term lease ensures that the property is still income producing and if your agent knows the market well, then the rental return should look attractive to a prospective purchaser. In my experience most agents will recommend that the tenant be evicted and the property left vacant whilst on the market. This is poor advice as there is no income generated on the property whilst on the market for sale, and it will not look appealing to prospective investors. Choose an agent that wants to work with you and your tenants to sell your tenanted property. If another agent manages your property and you want to sell, transfer to an agent that wants to make the transaction sweet, smooth and nurturing. Until next time……

ARIES Mar 21-Apr 20 Restless rams are in the mood for adventure this weekend, as you stretch yourself in exciting new directions. But, when it comes to money, don’t buy things you can’t afford.

TAURUS Apr 21-May 21 Bulls to the rescue as you help others, and inspire those around you with your practical approach and kind heart. Keep in mind that some people won’t want your assistance though.

GEMINI May 22-Jun 21 You’re likely to get anxious about events that normally wouldn’t bother you. Don’t let your imagination conjure up scenarios that are unlikely to happen – especially involving work.

CANCER Jun 22-Jul 23 It’s not a good time to host a party or family function, as there may be tension with a child or friend this weekend. Avoid being loose with the truth on Sunday.

LEO Jul 24-Aug 23 You’ll need all your detective skills to sort out what’s happening on the home front this weekend. What loved ones say and what they mean will be two very different things.

VIRGO Aug 24-Sep 23 Saturn demands high standards this weekend, so vigilant Virgos won’t have much time for fun and frivolity. Sunday is the time to catch up with chores around the home.

LIBRA Sep 24-Oct 23 Don’t let someone pull the wool over your eyes – especially involving work or money. Check details and paperwork thoroughly and, if you’re in doubt, ask for a second opinion.

SCORPIO Oct 24-Nov 22 All is not as it appears – especially when it comes to children, teenagers or friends. You may discover your point of view is based on a false assumption. Deal with the facts, then move on.

SAGITTARIUS Nov 23-Dec 21 Expect a demanding weekend – and don’t be disappointed if you accomplish little practical work. You’re making connections and sharing information that will pay off.

CAPRICORN Dec 22-Jan 20 Capricorns are conscientious folk but if you are too meticulous this weekend, you’ll just complicate matters and end up getting yourself into a super stressed state. Keep it simple.

AQUARIUS Jan 21-Feb 19 Restless and unpredictable, you’re hard to pin down as you jump from one project to another. Your approach looks randomly chaotic to others but you know what you’re doing – don’t you?

PISCES Feb 20-Mar 20 You’re at your creative best – and gullible worst – as moon/Neptune aspects overstimulate your imagination. You’ll feel incredibly inspired, but don’t believe everything you hear.

with MWP’s man in the water

Wow! How good was last weekend? Woo-hoo. Absolute cracker. Great waves, offshore all day Saturday and f nished with spectacular afternoons. It appears everywhere was good, real good. Now if you missed it, I am sorry, but I did warn you. Now, as for this weekend it looks like it will be ESE winds – the worst kind. So crack the golf clubs out and smash a few balls. For a bit of escapism I can tell you Asu in North Sumatra is 3.5 foot offshore all day. Just sayin!
