THE Mundubbera Ray White team is now ranked 11th in Australia after breaking records in the housing and rental markets within the North Burnett.
At their annual Ray White Rural Muster held in Coogee Beach in Sydney last week, several salespeople were awarded for their hard work after achieving remarkable outcomes for the 2017 financial year.
Karen Ruthenberg was awarded the premier salesperson, scoring more than 32 sales for the year, averaging three sales a month.
Another excellent salesperson was Glen Duffin who was awarded number six salesperson for Ray White Rural in Australia.
Principal Janelle Duffin was thrilled when she found out her team was awarded rank 11 out of all the other rural Ray Whites in Australia.
"I was very excited to have our office coming at number 11 in Australia,” Mrs Duffin said.
"There's about 100 Ray White Rural offices around the country and for us in Mundubbera to come in at number 11 is just phenomenal.”
Mrs Duffin explained the significance of coming 11th against other bigger rural areas in Australia.
"We're talking Toowoomba, Dalby, Rockhampton, there's big offices in Bathurst and Dubbo, they're big rural centres with a lot more people and some valuable real estate, we're pretty chuffed with what we've achieved,” she said.
Mrs Duffin knew her team was breaking records this year and was on its way for another award.
"Every month we get an update with how our sales people are going in comparison to all the other offices in the group, it's a bit of competition and gives them a bit of incentive,” she said.
"A number of times through the year we've often been around the number seven in the country so we knew there was an office where we were up there.
"They report on individual months and Glen has had the individual months where he's been the number one salesperson for Australia so we knew he was pretty well up there.”
Mrs Duffin was full of praise for Karen who she said had put in 100% in everything she has done at Ray White in Mundubbera.
"Karen just keeps going, she keeps making sales and some may be small but there's a lot of work that goes into it, to sell a $100,000 house in Eidsvold can take as much work as selling a $1million house in Brisbane,” she said.
"Hats off to her for all the effort she puts in.”
Mrs Duffin said these past few months had been good for home owners.
"The residential side has been quite depressed, it's been a really tough year but these last few months have been a bit of a bonus, but certainly for most of last financial year was very tough,” she said.
Ray White Mundubbera is looking forward to 2018.
