Ep 07 – Gerard Hill: Surviving COVID-19 with Homely
In today’s interview, we speak with the Principal and Director of Raine and Horne Newtown, Gerard Hill. Gerard strives to make Raine and Horne Newtown the number one agency and a constant innovator in the Sydney marketplace. Gerard is recognised as a thought leader by the franchise and has been a recipient of the prestigious Graeme Skarrett Award. Gerard bought the business in 1999 as a humble office of six staff, and since then has grown it into an elite team of 25 outstanding real estate professionals today, with 1500 properties under management and a host of record sales under their belts.
In this episode, Gerard talks about:
1. Growing their rent roll from 280 to over 1500 properties.
2. Redirecting sales agents’ energies into property management to help with the COVID-19 workload.
3. Becoming a market-leading property management business by implementing the best systems, procedures and new technology.
4. Shifting focus from traditional 9-to-5 workdays to more outcome-based results.
