PRDnationwide Newcastle and Lake Macquarie has been recognised as one of Australia's leading real estate sales businesses in a national list of top performing agencies.
The local real estate agency secured 10th position in the 2016 Real Estate Business Top 50 Sales Offices benchmark report, which ranks real estate sales offices across Australia according to a range of financial year business metrics, including sales volumes, efficiencies and conversion ratio.
"The REB Top 50 Sales Offices ranking provides insight into what the top performing offices do to stay ahead of their competition," said Tom Sullivan, REB publisher.
The results are testimony to the hard work and leadership shown by principals, many of which operate in incredibly tough and competitive markets.
"This report highlights some of the most effective and productive sales offices in Australia, and incorporates an array of businesses from various parts of the country, including regional areas," he continued.
"The goal of this benchmark ranking is to look beyond just sales figures and provide a clearer insight into how these successful businesses operate."
Data collected for the Top 50 Sales Offices ranking included sales numbers, sales volumes, staff numbers and listing numbers, among other information.
PRD Managing Director Mark Kentwell says this is a prestigious ranking for a business that is just 10 years old, operates outside a capital city and has undergone a significant recruitment drive throughout 2015.
"We are very honoured to have received this award, having been ranked in the top 50 each and every year since the award's inception is 2012," said Mr Kentwell.
"It is encouraging for our team to make the top ten and is the direct result of innovation, a commitment to training, excellent customer service, proven systems and effective marketing."
"At PRD we pride ourselves on having more hands per property ensuring fewer days on market and personalised service for vendors and buyers alike."
"Of the top 50 sales offices only 13 were from regional markets which meant we were in good company amongst our peers in this prestigious award."
"We would like to congratulate all the real estate businesses recognised in this award and thank our customers and team for their ongoing loyalty and support."
