Australians, let us celebrate...not just for one day but ALL year round!

Wow, we are off to a great start in property this year; attitudes are good and people seem motivated and decisive, and to top it off, we have just celebrated our special day - Australia Day.

However, read the papers this week or watch the news unfold and you're likely to be pulled straight back into all the doom and gloom. So...let all Australians band together and turn OFF the TV News, I suggest reading only the sports pages in the paper (and real estate of course), and TURN OUR BACKS on the negativity of the media who are peddling doom and gloom simply to sell more papers or gain better ratings.

Let's face it, if the astrologers are right, there will be weird natural disasters all year; if the economists are right, Europe will be a basket case all year and we may as well all just stay in bed and close the blinds. For me, I'm not prepared to lose a year of my life worrying about what may happen. And it seems I'm not alone, there are many more like me; you just want to get on with life in 2012 and enjoy what we have today. We are VERY LUCKY to be in South Australia, so why not enjoy it.

Personally, it's all about living in the now and having a great attitude towards life, not jumping at shadows.

Last year the real estate market changed dramatically, so Toop&Toop adapted and transformed accordingly to meet it head on. Experience and history have helped us enormously. I would hate to be dealing with this new market without having spent the late 80s and 90s selling, when there were no buyers and both interest and unemployment rates were running at double digits - now that was tough!

Things are so much better now than they were then. Don't forget that in SA, we now have record low interest and unemployment rates, record low property stock levels and record start up capital projects; new mine starts of record proportions, a Defence battalion arriving, and some of the cheapest property in this country. To top this off, the SA rental market is running red hot so far this year, exciting for property investors, as rents are currently being pushed up; it's a healthy start to they year as investors will no doubt start buying again with this sort of demand.

This brilliant start to 2012 has been amazing, so good that we are now recruiting. Toop&Toop need to employ more sales people, and we're hoping you can help. If you know any motivated and smart property people - especially living near one of our offices - we want to know about it! Call me personally, or email through some details. Our brand new Golden Grove office (plenty of room for up to five more sales professionals) as well as our Victor Harbor, Glenelg and Stirling offices should all have additional Sales Partners. But here's the catch - we need brilliant, motivated people with a great attitude. Passion, enthusiasm and "coachable", because we do things differently at Toop&Toop; we constantly change and innovate, and we expect a lot from our people. These positions are not for everyone.

We transformed our business last year to meet the new market conditions; we're now stronger than ever and are taking the next step, employing even more brilliant people to become part of our exceptional team.

So until next week, be proud to be Australian, be honoured to be South Australian and let's show passion, enthusiasm and leadership; these are times where our experience, passion and character can lead the Nation.
