Young talent shines at hockingstuart awards
Last week we held our 2017 hockingstuart awards, where we celebrated the achievements of our agents throughout the past year.
Held at Mural hall in Melbourne, the ceremony awarded employees and offices on their achievements in sales growth, market share and customer service over the past financial year, with our young talent in particular enjoying their time in the spotlight.
Taking out the coveted Franchise of the Year award was hockingstuart Armadale. They experienced a strong market share and increase in sales value, as well as outstanding customer service and staff engagement throughout the year to earn them the prestigious title.
With young-guns Jack Richardson, Walter Summons and James Annett recently becoming partners at the office, they also received the Most Improved Market Share award, which is surely reflective of the team’s burgeoning talent.
Samantha McCarthy, Senior Sales Consultant at hockingstuart Werribee, was named Sales Agent of the Year for both her exceptional customer service and achieving an annual sales value growth of 141%, which also won her the Elite Sales Club Best Percentage Growth award.
hockingstuart Melton Senior Sales Consultant Joe Mavrikos won two accolades – Sales Agent of the Year for both value and number of sales, while up-and-comer William O’Brien of hockingstuart Sandringham was crowned Novice Auctioneer of the Year.
Property Management teams across the state were also honoured. hockingstuart South Yarra earned Property Management Office of the year and Lachlain Ramsay from hockingstuart Ballarat won Customer Experience Property Manager of the Year.
We’re extremely impressed by the high calibre of talent within the agency, especially from our up-and-coming agents, and would like to extend warm congratulations to all our 2017 winners.
