Real estate’s night of nights. Thank you SA for all of your support!

Last Saturday was our Real Estate Industry's night of nights, the 2017 Real Estate Institute of South Australia's Excellence Awards. As we do each year, Team Toop entered every category that we could, because as a business we believe it is important to constantly test ourselves and our ideas. We believe it is what makes us grow, not only as people but also as a team, and helps drive us to continually improve for our clients.

The Real Estate Excellence Awards night was such an amazing night for our family, and we couldn't be more proud of our 
11 team finalists. It was exciting to see 
Sally Cameron take out gold in Residential Sales Person of the Year - Eastern, 
Mandy Doolan won Bronze in Residential Sales Person of the Year - Western/Beachside, Andrew Zardoukas was awarded bronze for Corporate Support of the year and Bronte Manuel recognised as the South Australian Auctioneer of the Year for the third year in a row!

As a business, Toop&Toop was recognised as the winners of the three largest corporate accolades on the night: Marketing & Communications, Innovation and overall winner... Large Residential Agency of the Year!

These awards were very special to us, as each of these categories are integral in delivering an exceptional real estate experience, service and results to our clients and the community.

Property marketing and communicating with buyers are fundamental skills for real estate agents and key to achieving a premium sale price for a home. The way an agent represents a property and how they create emotional connections through marketing is so important in creating competition amongst buyers.

Innovative thinking leads to innovative ideas, and ultimately to innovative products. These become the tools an agent can use to differentiate themselves and the properties they represent in the market. Innovation enables us to achieve exceptional results through products and services that are unique to Team Toop. This year we won the Innovation award for ToopCreate - an innovative suite of products that we are proud to bring to South Australia. These tools are providing exceptional value and results to both our buyers and sellers.

Just like in any business, underpinning everything is your team. Your team are the ultimate keys to success. In an industry where collaborating and sharing information is extremely rare, we feel so grateful to have a culture, environment and people that embrace teamwork and who love collaboration. To have a team who travel from all over the state every Tuesday morning to present their client's homes to each other and help one another sell all Toop&Toop properties is so unique, and a perfect example of teamwork coming to life in our business.

Last Saturday night was truly humbling on so many different levels. We are so thankful to our clients and the entire South Australian community for all of your support. It has been a huge year of change, innovation, results and achievements for our team and to have our community's support means so much to us as a family business. 

We are excited to now go on to represent South Australia in the Real Estate Institute of Australia's National Excellence Awards early next year. We hope we can make our state proud!
