Chris Rolls

Chris Rolls has had a remarkable career in small business over the last 10 years. While studying sports marketing at university, Chris started his first business a corporate sports clothing company called SCODY Performance Wear. Specialising in the manufacturing of performance swimwear and cycling apparel, the business grew rapidly to become one of the largest suppliers in the industry and still operates today.

Chris sold his interest in SCODY in 1999 and started First Class Accounts a bookkeeping and accounting franchise business specialising in small business accounts. Once again the business grew rapidly, becoming the largest bookkeeping services franchisor in Australia with over 1300 franchises working out of most major cities across Australia. Chris sold his interest in First Class Accounts in 2002.

While running First Class Accounts Chris started his third business this time in the real estate industry in 2001 after purchasing Harcourts Paddington Real Estate for 00. Chris in just 8 years has grown the business to be one of Queensland’s largest real estate businesses. It took just 2 years in the industry for the Harcourts Property Centre to be ranked in the top five Harcourts offices in Queensland.

In 2004 Chris became a licensed auctioneer and has rapidly become one of Queensland’s most sought after auctioneers. In 2004 having called just 5 auctions Chris won the inaugural Harcourts Australia Auctioneer of the Year competition, and in 2005 in his first attempt, Chris won the Real Estate Institute of Queensland Auctioneer of the Year award. In 2006 Chris represented Queensland at Australasian Auctioneer of the Year Competition held in New Zealand, ranking him as one of the best Real Estate Auctioneers in Australia and New Zealand.

In 2006 Chris sold the Harcourts Property Centre real estate sales business to concentrate solely on property management. The property management division of the real estate business was renamed Rental Express. Rental Express is now the largest privately owned residential property management business in Queensland with over .5 billion worth of real estate under management across 234 suburbs operating from four locations. Each year Rental Express conducts over 9000 property inspections and accommodates around 6000 tenants.

Chris is an expert columnist for the national publication Your Investment Property Magazine, and is the auctioneer of choice for Brisbane’s largest annual charity ball, The Brisbane BMW Gala Ball.

Trilby became an icon in the area with active community involvement and he also set up a very successful legal practice, Trilby Misso Lawyers.

Shannon Davis

"How to" add 289 new managements in 1 year

Shannon Davis is Director and Principal of Image Property Management in Brisbane.

Shannon joined the property management industry in  2009 after beginning his working life as a primary school teacher.  Shannon’s teaching career spanned 10 years and included stints in Brisbane, London and Italy.

Having previously invested in property and renovated homes, his intention was to buy the real estate company, once he had ‘learnt the ropes’.  Shannon took ownership of Image Property Management and decided there was little point growing the business until all of the current clients were happy with their services. 

The first 15 months saw very little growth – the worst time was the 2011 floods. It was very stressful catching up on all the work in that period of the year as well as the complications a natural disaster brings.

From March that year, with trustworthy staff and best practice systems in place, Shannon became the first BDM for Image.  Taking a sales approach, with superior appraisal, listing presentation and unique selling propositions Image has seen remarkable growth.   Shannon credits staffing, best practice systems, focusing on letting periods, mentors and adding the right technology as the key drivers that helped the business win managements.

In October 2013, Shannon became Head Property Strategist for Brisbane in Michael Yardney’s Metropole organisation.  This allows Shannon to combine his two loves of investing and property management and provide value, expertise and experience to fellow investors.

Shannon has been a guest on Real Estate Talk, Your Home on 4BC, AREC Lounge and his expert opinions appear in the Australian Property Investor magazine and Winning in Property management resource.

 

Deniz Yusuf

"How to" list 745 properties in 3 years

Deniz does not come from any academic background, he was a business owner in a regional town called Nowra which is on the South Coast of NSW in the Shoalhaven district just a few hours’ drive south of Sydney. He was a fruito for most of his life after he left school. One thing he tells people when coaching is “There’s no emails in Fruit”, if a new coffee shop opened up, he had to call them or go and visit them to get the business. Deniz believes that real estate has the same concept, it’s all about asking for the business and what experience you can give your clients. Real estate isn’t just about collecting rent and charging a fee.  

In 2012 & 2013 Leading Property Managers of Australia awarded Deniz the best BDM for two years in a row for “Excellence in Business Development” So in 2013 Deniz started BDMCoach.com.au.

Some of Deniz’s clients that he’s done consulting and presenting with is already an impressive line-up of clients that include Rental Express, McGrath Group, Philip Webb and more. Deniz started as a BDM in May of 2009 for Integrity Real estate, with consecutive numbers of 76, 191, 237, 317 & 104 in 4 months of 2013, a total of 925 new managements from 1077 presentations in 48 months.

His focus is now growing other people’s rent rolls and mentoring them to become market leaders in their area.

 

 

Andrew Reece

"How to" grow 1857 new managements by leasing them fast

Andrew Reece has more than 15 years’ experience in the Real Estate industry. He is well known for his intense passion for the industry, honesty and practical down to earth strategies for organic growth and systems, procedures and checklists.

 Andrew is a Certified Practising Accountant and has a Bachelor of Business majoring in Accounting from Queensland University of Technology.

 Working as a Real Estate Accountant for 3 years preparing monthly management reports for 25 of south east Queensland’s leading Real Estate agents, lead to his involvement in bringing the Franchise of RE/MAX to Australia.  Andrew then worked with the RE/MAX Corporate team in establishing the first 8 RE/MAX franchised Real Estate offices.

 Andrew went on to become a partner in prorentals.com.au, a 100% pure property management company which opened for business in 1998 with 31 properties. prorentals.com.au managed over 1,700 properties and employed 32 full time staff. Operating from the one office in Toowong, Brisbane, Queensland, prorentals.com.au organically grew 2,743 new managements. In late 2011, prorentals.com.au completed the sale of its properties under management. Andrew learnt how to grow a business from first hand experiences & mistakes.

 It is this first-hand experience that led Andrew to co-create inspectrealestate.com.au. Andrew identified the need for a solution to the time consuming task of manually following up on leads, booking inspections, and creating inspection runs. The inspectrealestate.com.au software automatically captures tenant details and allows tenants to book inspections online. It enables Property Managers to plan their inspection runs with the simple press of a button, allowing them to focus on the real task at hand – Property Management.

fishbat Explains 4 Misunderstandings About Content Marketing


Bohemia, NY (PRWEB) March 23, 2014

fishbat, an award winning online marketing company, details four misunderstandings about content marketing and why its beneficial to your business.

Following a March 17th article posted on Entrepreneur titled 4 Big Misconceptions About Content Marketing, content marketing has many advantages over traditional outbound marketing, such as higher follower engagement, higher brand awareness, and lower costs.

Justin Maas, vice president of client relations at fishbat, an award winning online marketing company agrees. Too often I notice small businesses engaging in online marketing unsuccessfully. This is due to misunderstandings about proper content marketing strategies. Maas discusses four mistakes he often sees small businesses make.

1. Searching for a content marketing formula. A simple formula of content marketing does not exist. Content marketing is about seeing what works, seeing what doesnt work, and constantly altering the strategy, says Maas.

2. Not promoting content. While great content is important, if it is not promoted, it is a wasted effort. Promotion can vary from business to business, but some successful ways are via social media, email lists, or promotions in brick and mortar stores, Mass explains.

3. Producing content merely to produce content. Every post, every blog, every picture should have a purpose. If the purpose is simply to get likes or to fill in todays schedule, it is not good content. While the content might get a few likes, it will not help generate revenue or brand awareness in any way, says Maas.

4. Only producing content to advertise. Taking tip No. 3 into consideration, content marketing can still be fun as long as it has a purpose. Content that educates followers and promotes their engagement is a great way to promote a brand and create a following, Mass explains.

fishbat is a full-service digital marketing firm and social media agency dedicated to connecting all types of businesses with their target audiences in the most effective and efficient way. Through innovative strategies in social media management, search engine optimization (SEO), branding, web design, reputation management and public relations, fishbat promotes a consistent and professional online voice for all of its clients.

CFO Consulting Services Discusses How Many States Are Cracking Down On Small Businesses that Skip Out on Paying Taxes


Bohemia, NY (PRWEB) March 24, 2014

CFO Consulting Services, a company providing CFO services on a part time basis, details why states are tightening their reigns when collecting taxes from small businesses and self-employed entrepreneurs.

According to a March 11th article published by Businessweek titled How States Are Cracking Down on Small Business Tax Cheats, small businesses and entrepreneurs cost state governments billions of dollars each year in unpaid taxes. States and local governments also have major tax gaps. The article says the amount of taxes owed often exceeds the amount of money actually collected, resulting in a loss of revenue. California loses about $ 10 billion each year from unpaid taxes.

However, 30 states, including California, are beginning to invest in technology to improve collection processes. Lawrence Teicher, founder of CFO Consulting Services, a leading CFO services provider, discusses the four ways states are cracking down on small businesses that dont pay their taxes:
