The former team behind First National North Western will be adding their might to a new agency: McGrath Rouse Hill/Stanhope Gardens.

Award-winning agent Ruma Mundi will be bringing her business prowess to a partnership with McGrath West principal Kon Stathopoulos, with the pair to lead up a 22-strong McGrath Rouse Hill/Stanhope Gardens team.

Calling the merger “a strategic alliance for our business”, Mr Stathopoulos has expressed delight at the alignment.

“Ruma will be an exemplary fit for McGrath. On a personal level, Ruma displays the same ethics, values and views that are part of the fabric of McGrath. As an agent, she’s one of the leading female agents in the state, if not the country.”

In addition to bringing across her sales team of five under the McGrath banner, Ms Mundi’s rent roll, which has 400 properties under management, will also merge into McGrath West.

For Ms Mundi, the merger offers a win for both her clients and her team.

“Fifty per cent of our buyer pool is selling in the Parramatta-Blacktown area to upsize to our north-west region. So, this new connection with McGrath West makes sense from both a client and a business perspective. We’ll be able to service our clients right through their journey.”

She said: “I’ve surrounded myself with the right people, and now that we’re joining hands with McGrath, my team is all in.”

On a personal note, Ms Mundi does see her career coming full circle, recalling how she started her real estate career by attending a training session with John McGrath at the Hilton Hotel.

“I thought, ‘If I can one day be a McGrath agent, I know I’ll have made it,’” she stated.

Now that she’s there, Mr Stathopoulos considered that “with McGrath’s systems behind her and our aligned values of client care, Ruma will continue to flourish”.

“She is joining a group of top-quality sales agents where 45 per cent are super-talented female agents,” said Mr Stathopoulos, flagging her recent sales track record. In the past year, Ms Mundi has transacted more than 122 sales averaging $1,185,000 each, and each listing lasting just 21 days on the market, on average.

A highpoint was her sale of 42 Winchcombe Place in Castle Hill, a six-bedroom home on 2,000 square metres, which sold in August for $2.82 million.

“Ruma is known for her dedication to her clients, with over 80 per cent of her business being repeat clientele,” her business partner raised.

He noted McGrath’s technological support as not only improving productivity but also enabling agents to access a better work-life balance – as propelled by the pandemic.

“COVID has highlighted now more than ever the importance of looking after your family as well as your clients,” he said.

For Ms Mundi, a mother to two daughters, this balance is important.

She said: “McGrath’s systems and supports mean I can have more time with my family while giving my clients and their properties the time and attention they deserve.”

Reflecting on her move across to McGrath, Ms Mundi said, “we have the right people for the right brand”.
