Fletchers are proud to announce the opening of our most recent office, in Mermaid Beach, QLD

November 24, 2010 Leave a comment

Fletchers are continuing to grow, and are pleased to announce our first ever office outside of Victoria.  Fletchers Mermaid Beach brings to Queensland award-winning professionalism and world’s best practice skills developed over more than 90 years of experience in one of Australia’s most competitive property markets.

The Mermaid Beach office is located in the centre of the Gold Coast, the epicentre of Australia’s busiest real estate environment. Our team includes local experience and knowledge that goes back more than 30 years when the local population was around 50,000 people and today’s prized locations often sold for less than $10,000.

Below is a link to an article in last Sunday’s Herald Sun about the new Mermaid Beach office, along with a sneaky reference to the upcoming opening of another new Fletchers office in Sorrento!  Yes, Fletchers will have offices on both sides of Port Phillip Bay when this new office commences operations.

Again, I can’t help but say what a great night the Fletchers team had at the recent REIV awards.  Take a look at the video which was shot during the evening, showing how fantastic everyone looked in their black tie outfits and the camaraderie which exists between our team members.  Also check out Alan Bramich’s dance moves – when he’s not spinning the discs as our resident DJ, he’s spinning around in the disco!

Interest Rate hike makes an impact on last Saturday’s Auctions

November 10, 2010 Leave a comment

Last week’s Reserve Bank increase in interest rates seems to have spooked buyers somewhat this week.  Take a look at articles in The Sunday Age last week, where Tim Fletcher (and Jason Salan) managed to score front page of the Domain section.  There’s also a small article on 3 & 3A Munro St Kew East attached, which unfortunately failed to sell at auction on Saturday.

Fantastic Auction result last Sat – 32 View St Mont Albert

November 4, 2010 Leave a comment

This original 1940’s weatherboard sold at auction for $791,000, with three bidders pushing the final price above our expected price range of $640,000-$700,000.

Here’s what the happy vendor had to say:  “Thanks to Tim Heavyside and Jennifer Ellett for running a very professional and successful marketing campaign. The Auction resulted in a much higher than expected sales result and I would recommend Fletchers to anyone wanting to get the best possible price for their property.”
