Heavy hitter lends hand to regional team’s success

Heavy hitter lends hand to regional team’s success

A Tasmanian real estate office is basking in the benefits of a recent recruitment drive which saw it land one of Devonport’s leading agents.

As well as wooing one of the area’s top agents, it’s also reporting a large number of sales this calendar year in spite of the continuing impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Harcourts Devonport/Shearwater business owner Angela Johnson has welcomed sales consultant Wendy Squibb into the regional office’s team.

While acknowledging that her results in the northwest coast area spoke for themselves, Ms Johnson said “it was more important to us that she would fit in with our office, our values and our processes”.

“It’s safe to say she is passing with flying colours!”

According to the business owner, it took a couple of years to convince Ms Squibb to make the jump from a local family-owned agency to the larger Harcourts office.

“We’re really glad to have her on board now – what she has been able to achieve under the Harcourts banner over the last few months has been quite incredible,” Ms Johnson said.  

From Ms Squibb’s perspective, the opportunity to work for a larger and more recognised brand ended up being “too good to pass up”.

The agent, who has only been in the industry for the past five years, has moved across to the Harcourts team with her executive assistant, Emily Carmichael.

The “formidable partnership” has already notched up almost 40 sales in the four months since the pair made the move in what Ms Squibb called “a pretty seamless transition”.

“There’s always going to be some learning of the way things are done in a new office, but there have been very few hiccups, and I think we’ve fitted in really well.”

“It’s fair to say we hit the ground running. It’s been a big four months where we’ve had some incredible sales and brought on a lot of good listings,” she added.

But it’s not just about the listings.

“I’m really proud of the prices we have been able to achieve,” Ms Squibb reflected.

“We’ve had multiple offers for almost all of them, which have manifested into some great results across the board.”

It’s been a boon for Ms Johnson and the wider business, who stated that “there’s no doubt we are getting bigger and better each day”.

“I think we’re continuing to prove that we’re one of the best in the business,” she continued.

“As the Tasmanian market goes from strength to strength, so are we.”
