With our conference theme this year being ‘A Fresh Start’, it was all about a new chapter for Summit in Marlborough, our new Blenheim building, and an opportunity for the Summit to celebrate being the number one sales and property management company in the top of the South region.
Our conference this year was held at the Scenic Circle Marlborough. A significant part of it is about bringing our team together to learn new skills to help them provide the best results in the marketplace.
We once again welcomed John Abbott, International Sales Trainer, who facilitated our verifiable training for our Summit agents. John has worked in the real estate industry for more than 36 years in both Australia and New Zealand and is invaluable in terms of the training he provides our team.
Another familiar face to the Summit team; Darren Pratley also joined us at conference this year. Darren has enjoyed a career spanning nearly two decades in the financial services industry. His skill set ranges from business consultancy to communication and technology, providing valuable tools for our team to put into practice.
Friday brought around the opening of our newly refurbished premises in Blenheim. Deciding to upgrade our office and invest in the region was an easy decision. Summit, like our clients, see a great future for the local community, and we will continue to offer the very best service to them.
The upgrade of such excellent office space for the Blenheim team doesn’t happen overnight, and on behalf of the Summit team, we would like to thank all those involved.
Our property management team joined us on Friday along with their main speaker for the day, Gina Munro, Emotional Intelligence Coach. Stewart Henry, Property Management General Manager, commented on the day;
“As property managers act as the go-between with landlords and tenants, a high degree of communication skills are needed. The property management team learned valuable tools to make use of in their everyday work to help provide excellent service to our clients.
Also, during the day, the property managers were updated on recent legislative changes and company systems introduced to navigate the way forward for our clients.”
It was another successful, productive Summit conference and as always, one of the highlights of the year for our team. For a confidential chat about anything property related, get in touch with one of the team.
