Looking back on 2013…

What a big year it has been for real estate. We have experienced the market transitioning to the recovery phase with record low interest rates across the year. Buyers have been biting the bullet and investors have been hugely active, chasing the low vacancy rates across core areas in Adelaide.

It's been an exciting year for real estate but also for Adelaide. The new look Rundle Mall and city streets are coming to life. Peel Street and Leigh Street are adding a new buzz to the city and things are really moving. The South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute (SAHMRI) is a world class facility and icon for our State.  And what better way to finish off a big year of change than watching Australia lead the way against England at the new and improved Adelaide Oval. And making the Lonely Planet Top 10 Cities to visit for 2014 list at number 9 is a true sign that our wonderful city is stamping its mark on not just the Australian, but the world map.

As agents, we love being submerged in this energy. Seeing new hubs of activity develop in our city is fantastic and we love working with our clients to achieve results. I'm excited for what's to come in 2014. I think it will be a big year for Adelaide but in particular Toop&Toop. Our team, both Sales and Property Management, are gearing up for another year of outstanding results. Genevieve and I are driving ongoing improvements across the entire business and pursuing growth. We will continue to re-set what our clients can expect from their agent.

This wouldn't be possible without all the hard work put in by our entire team. A huge thank you and congratulations to Team Toop - you have been fantastic. You have achieved so much this year and have been instrumental in ensuring we strive for exceptional customer service.

There is lots happening in our State and we are not taking our foot off the gas. We are one of the few agencies working through January and the Festive Season. If you are looking for property over the holiday period, make sure you look at ToopVault at or if you're looking for an investment property check out Our ToopVault properties will be launched in January so make sure you have a look before they hit the market to make sure you don't miss out!

To our clients, from the whole Team Toop family, thank you for all your support. We hope you have a fantastic Christmas break and enjoy spending time with family and friends. This is often the only time in the year to unwind and spend quality time with loved ones, so we hope you have a safe and relaxing time. We look forward to working with you in 2014.
