OBrien Real Estate was founded by Co-Directors Dean O’Brien and Darren Hutchins in 2010, with Stavros Ambatzidis joining the corporate team as a Director in 2013. Today OBrien Real Estate has 27 offices around Melbourne and employs 380+ staff. The company prides itself on offering excellent customer service and ‘infinite learning’ for their team, frequently bringing in the best real estate trainers to develop and improve their employees’ knowledge and skills. Being people-focused and giving back to the community is central to OBrien’s company culture, where they donate $50 from every property sale to various charities through the OBrien Real Estate Foundation.
In today’s video, Dean, Darren and Stavros discuss:
1. Upskilling teams, staying engaged and focusing on training to come out of this stronger.
2. Their ‘human first, agent second’ mentality and how they’re supporting the community in these uncertain times.
3. Challenges, improvements and the future of live online auctions.
4. The backflip on the ban of inspections of occupied homes and solutions moving forward.
