Week Seven: Tahnee lands two appraisals
Wow Week Seven! Time does fly when you are busy!
Bill’s instructions were to walk, drive and know the streets of the people I would be phoning and then use RP Data to obtain numbers and start calling.
After many calls with little to no result, I went to Bill and asked his thoughts on whether I could put my “Tahnee-ness” in my script. He asked what I had in mind and I was off like a movie star (I had rehearsed what I was planning to say in a mirror before I approached him).
Guess what happened! Firstly Bill agreed! Then, after a few phone calls with a slightly different approach, I was invited into two incredible homes and met their amazing home owners!
On both Wednesday and Saturday I went with Bill and Sophie to their open home in Vaucluse, which was another great opportunity to watch everything they did with the interested buyers who attended. I also managed to talk Bill into taking a selfie which was a very hard thing to do!
Wednesday was also Breakfast with the Sales Team in Bondi which was great as the amazing apartment I am in is just a short walk away. I may have still driven the Chariot (Audi Q2)….
One learning point Bill had brought up was to “never stop providing a service”. I witnessed Bill go out of his way to help a vendor with a system in their new home after all processes were finalised and complete. He said “never be too busy to provide a service to past and current vendors. I didn’t have to do that and some agents wouldn’t but you have to”.
The hardest part about this week would have to be narrowing down the places/offices that I’m interested in working at in future.
I am spending my Sundays going to different areas to see where I would like to start putting all of this experience in to play. Bill and I have discussed one area in particular where I might feel at home.
The best part about being the Million Dollar Intern this week is that I have realised that not only my career is going to be incredible and my beautiful Audi Q2 Chariot is amazing, I am also really loving Sydney and the people here!
Thanks for following my journey!
