Place Newmarket – Real Estate Website Design & Development by Stepps – placerealestate.com.au


– My name is Karen Elliott, and I’m one of the directors
at Place Newmarket. We’ve been in real estate
now for around 15 years and have owned the business
for nearly 14 years. We’re incredibly fortunate in that we are located in a beautiful part of Brisbane in the northern suburbs, and we’ve enjoyed great success in both sales and property management. Real estate first appealed
to me from a very young age. My grandfather was actually
a real estate agent. He was a beautiful English gentleman and he would put his
cravat on and he would go out in his car and he would
take people for drives. And he would come back two hours later, my grandmother would
rush to the front door. She’d have a clipboard and you could feel the excitement in the
room when they walked in. Grandma would go into her little room, she would type up a contract. And my grandfather was happy and the people were happy and for me, that’s what
real estate was about. It was about exploring
a journey with people. It wasn’t about listing
and selling a property, and I still don’t think
it is about that today. It’s about the journey, from how you get there to how you get here. Today, people still want to matter, but they need to matter quicker, and so we’ve had to move with the times to let that happen. We wanted to build a new website because what we had
previously was fairly static. It was okay, it met with our branding, it looked okay on the front of it, but it didn’t, actually, help us to create those relationships with people. And at the end of the
day, that is our business. It is about finding opportunity, not just for ourselves
but for our clients. We partnered with Stepps because I needed somebody that understood real estate. I’d met Josh a number of
years ago at a conference and I immediately took to him. He’s just a lovely, genuine fellow and he understood real estate. There’s lots of agencies
out there that are building websites and
because they don’t get the unique nature of our business, they can’t build a website to suit it. Stepps can. Stepps has provided for us a multifaceted
marketing opportunity. It looks at our listings and our sales, which are really, really important. It has helped our agents
grow their exposure. It’s also provided us with
leveraging opportunities. So, if we are looking
at promoting a property, it’s allowed us to utilise social networks so that we can get our
message out there quicker, broader, and in a more timely fashion. I’m really looking forward to working with Stepps so that we
can continue to evolve our business and also the people that are working within our business. It’s incredibly important to me that together we have huge success.
