RE/MAX lifestyle estates big achievers

Despite reasonably adverse trading conditions within the property sector during 2011, RE/MAX of Southern Africa continued growing from strength to strength and remained one of the country’s leading real estate groups.

CEO of RE/MAX of Southern Africa, Adrian Goslett, said at the group’s recent national convention held at Sun City that the success during 2011 was a result of RE/MAX agents going above and beyond to give their clients excellent service and understanding that the property industry is more about fostering relationships than selling a product.

At the end of 2011, the group reported a 33% growth on registered sales compared to the 2010 figures, which had grown by 37% on the figures from 2009.  “The results are a reflection of the remarkable effort that RE/MAX Broker/Owners and agents have put in to achieve the impossible. RE/MAX of Southern Africa has continued to perform extremely well in conditions that have left many by the wayside,” says Goslett.

The national convention, which was attended by over 600 delegates from all regions in Southern Africa, was a chance for RE/MAX of Southern Africa to celebrate its results and award the top achievers of 2011.

The national convention and awards ceremony was attended by all nine agents that make up the team from Langebaan-based RE/MAX Lifestyle Estates. Furthermore, in a great coup for this office, every single agent from RE/MAX Lifestyle Estates were presented with an award, which is an exceptional achievement. Tremendously proud Domonick and Maurice Lodewick, Broker/Owners of RE/MAX Lifestyle Estates, attribute this success to their agent’s hard work and dedication to the role of successfully brokering property transactions.

Jean Steenkamp was only one of two agents nationwide to achieve a level of registered commission to earn a place in the newcomer achievement club. Doret Grobbelaar and Theresa Lourens scooped a Silver Club award for their registered commission earnings while Susan Opie achieved Gold Club status. Jennie Olls was presented with a 100% Club award along with Estelle Koch, Barbara Warner, Domonick Lodewick and Maurice Lodewick.

But perhaps the most prestigious award achieved by this office was the title of Broker/ Owner of the Year 2011 for a single office in a non-metro area within Southern Africa, which was bestowed on Domonick and Maurice Lodewick.

Goslett congratulated RE/MAX Lifestyle Estates on its successes, saying that it is only through hard work and dedication along with great leadership and mentoring from its Brokers that these agents have managed to achieve such a high level of success.

When asked the top three characteristics needed for success in this industry are, Maurice and Domonick said service, honesty and a caring business environment.

“We are thrilled to have achieved such excellent results at this year’s awards - despite the fact that we are located in a small town, we have managed to achieve big success. Our advice for success to other property professionals is to enjoy what you do and the rest will happen by itself, be different, don’t neglect community involvement, have fun, practice financial discipline and stand out above the crowd,” they conclude.
