This last week has certainly had plenty of variety both personally and as a community. Right from the threats of potential school closures and mergers, more revealed from the Commission of Inquiry into the CTV building failure and the sadness of carnage on our city roads. The positive highlight for me was a couple of days on the Gold Coast late last week with 25 of my colleagues from Harcourts Gold on an incentive trip that we all qualified for. We all took some time out from our day to day businesses to relax, share ideas and enjoy the unique Gold family culture without the normal work pressure. The beach and the mild weather were a real treat – a great tonic for both body and soul!
Here are a few gems from a brief training session with Mike Green our Managing Director:
- The importance of having the right people around you
- Have the passion to push through and beyond because there are going to be knockers
- People want to be inspired, have faith, experience honesty and integrity.
- New business is five times harder to obtain or create than existing business
Well that is probably about enough for now, however do be sure to check out my website at www.griff.net.nz as we have listed a couple of new properties both in the Queenspark area and are worthwhile taking a look at. One falls into the “very affordable” basket due to the owners having negotiated a cash settlement with their insurers and now selling on the open market, while the other stands strong on TC2 land and owners having jumped the “ditch” – both spell opportunity!
I’m loving this sun and here’s to another great week!
