ARPM speaker profile: Karl Secondis
When it comes to property management, many agents find maintaining their current rent roll as challenge enough, let alone growing it or expanding their services.
Sometimes agents get caught in a bit of a sales rut - they generate results every day but they are not moving up or forward.
This is why many choose to take a break from their schedule and come and listen to some leading experts share their success stories.
Often all it takes is a bit of external advice and extra motivation for agents to get their careers back on track.
There are a range of speakers coming along to the Australasian Residential Property Management Conference (ARPM) 2012. Here they will be delivering inspirational presentations and providing attendees with the tips and tricks they need to start generating some positive results.
One of these speakers is Karl Secondis, the director of Darwin-based agency One Real Estate.
Passion + experience = results
Karl is yet another good example of what happens when you combine passion with experience.
The meeting of these two qualities results in a property manager who not only genuinely cares about what he does, but also has the experience and knowledge to execute his business plans in a way that is both personally and professionally fulfilling.
Karl has over 16 years' experience working in Darwin and is now the director of One Real Estate where, along with business partner Joely Sullivan, he uses his enthusiasm and expertise to generate results.
Attention to detail
Apart from exuding energy and passion, Karl also has a reputation for having a fine eye for detail.
This, combined with his experience, has seen him awarded many prizes, including the prestigious Real Estate Institute of Northern Territory Salesperson and Auctioneer of the Year award.
Seeing both sides of the story
Many people also put Karl's success down to his ability to understand his client's needs.
He invests in his own property so is aware of the challenges that come from being on the other side of a deal - which is one of the reasons why he wants to deliver such a good service.
At ARPM 2012, he will use his own experience as a base to speak about how you can quickly grow your rent roll and become an expert in your own area.
If you are interested in listening to Karl and other speakers, come along to ARPM 2012 at the Hilton Hotel in Sydney. The property management conference is being held on August 5 and 6 - there will also be a Trade Show and exclusive networking opportunities. Register and learn more about ARPM 2012.
