World record for Melbourne’s fastest selling agent?

World record for Melbourne’s fastest selling agent?

by Tim Neary 18 comments

A Melbourne agent is used to turning his listings over quickly, selling 80 per cent of properties within a single day. But last week, he might have set a new world record for speed.

Zed Nasheet of LJ Hooker Hampton Park sold a property exactly 15 minutes after he had secured the listing. The property sold for $420,000, $70,000 more than the vendor’s expectations.

Known already as one of Australia’s fastest selling agents, now Mr Nasheet has applied to have the feat included in the Guinness World Records.

“I want to be the world’s number one agent,” Mr Nasheet told REB, adding, “I want to hold the title. I want to be the first real estate agent from Melbourne, Australia that sells properties in the $400,000 to $1 million range, the fastest in the world.”

Mr Nasheet is convinced his 15-minute deal is a world record, saying, “Nobody is going to be quicker than that.” 

He attributes his success in speed-selling to having excellent rapport with all his clients, both sellers and buyers.

“Most agents focus on finding vendors that are selling. When a buyer calls them in, they’ll say, ‘Okay sir, I’ll give you a call when I get something’. In reality, they don’t return their phone calls,” Mr Nasheet said.

“I work harder on my buyers because they turn into vendors one day. Most agents don’t get that concept.”

He also ensures his database covers suburbs across Melbourne.

“Because I don’t sell real estate in one area, I sell it all over Melbourne,” Mr Nasheet said. 

“Most agents make a mistake by only selling in their area. They should be able to sell real estate all over Australia because real estate is all online now anyway.” 

Mr Nasheet said he lives and breathes real estate.

“Numbers come out of my head even when I’m asleep. I think about real estate even when I’m sleeping. I got up at four o’clock this morning."
