It was great to have the chance to catch up recently with Dean Teuma of Harcourts Ballarat for a coffee & a chat at Eclectic Tastes Cafe & Pantry.
Dean estimates that he has sold over $52million worth of property across Victoria in his 6 year real estate career and prides himself on winning the Customer Service Awards in 2013, 2014 & 2015 for franchise he was working for at the time.
Here's some of the topics we covered during the course of our discussion and what I learned about Dean:
His favorite food is – Pizza
He loves talking about – Real estate and High-performance vehicles 🏡🏎
His favorite movie genre is – Thriller
He really wishes he had more time to – Renovate a home 🛠
His favorite city is – Ballarat by far
He thinks the best aspect of his job is – having the opportunity to relate to clients and to get them the goal they want
Dean says the one thing all buyers have in common is – buyers tend not to have many of there finances in order when purchasing and some times don’t understand the buying process.
He believes that the one thing all vendors should know is – That every property is unique in some way and that every property is only comparable to a certain level when it comes to comparable and that every property should be dealt with differently.
Finally, we didn't want to let Dean go without asking what he thought it was important for people to know about the agency he represents, Harcourts Ballarat and how he feels that Harcourts differs from other agencies.
Dean told us that he felt that, 'our philosophy is that we are a people first organisation. We want to ensure that we deal with all clients with one train of thought, which is to exceed all client expectations, no matter what. One of my biggest attractions as an agent is that working in Real Estate in metro Melbourne, it has allowed me to be able to understand Melbourne buyers wants and needs, as well as their motivation and the circumstances they may have sold in, as 77.3% of buyers purchase property in Ballarat & surrounds that are from these Metro CBD locations.'
Thanks for your time Dean & to Eclectic Tastes Cafe & Pantry for the great coffee!
