What an Amazing month!

It¹s been a big month for Toop&Toop. Since gathering at the start of May to
celebrate the company¹s 22nd anniversary, everyone has been constantly on
the go!

We¹ve had Phil Harris win the pinnacle auction award in South Australia, the
Golden Gavel, and that was just the start for Phil. Only a matter of days
later he faced a crowd at the largest real estate conference in the southern
hemisphere ­ AREC. Held in Sydney, the conference played host to 2200 delegates with the who¹s who of real estate in Australia all in attendance. Phil Harris was one of the keynote speakers. He totally wooed the audience and as one of the youngest speakers was completely swamped in true hero style following his flawless presentation. The Toop gang in the audience were very proud.

Speaking of proud, the national profile of Toop&Toop is just enormous at present. All of the Toopsters experienced this first hand receiving typical comments from delegates all around the nation like ³so you¹re from that Toop company in South Australia².

Further to our office of 'gurus', following behind Peter Veitch as no. 1 in the country, young Alex McGregor-Reid is about to be profiled as one of the up and coming industry heroes with a DVD training program about to be launched in Australia featuring Alex. I was invited to be the co-host alongside Darryl Weekes who plays host to the weekly national property television show ³Myhome². Darryl requested that we co-host this large scale training product which involved 2 solid days of filming in Canberra last week.

While recovering after a full days filming, quite late on the Wednesday evening, we happened to be sharing some fine moments and by coincidence were privileged to meet the Prime Minister of Greece at the Hyatt, prior to him heading to Adelaide. Clearly I'm name dropping, but it was a buzz and I'm easily thrilled! (photo adjacent toprove it!).

Sounds all very glamorous, but boy the pressure is on for us to continue to perform and make sure that we don't drop the ball. All eyes are on Toop&Toop, and our team across the nation. We¹re up for the challenge and looking forward to a fantastic remaining 2007!
