I have been asked countless times what my thoughts are and what will happen to the Real Estate industry here. Prior to Covis-19, in fact since mid-last year buyer interest was high locally from interstate buyers, and it is still there, maybe as I like to look at it, we are just in a holding pattern. We are indeed so lucky to be living in the Limestone Coast as the region offers so much in terms of lifestyle, location and leisure.
The new normal is vastly different in some ways, but we must all agree how lucky we are to be living in Australia and the way the leaders of our country have protected us fiercely against the virus. We are even luckier to be living in a region with so much space during restrictions, at times I’ve wondered if it’s affected life at all.
We have been working hard behind the scenes on providing you new and exciting things to be implemented over the next few months. So this brings me to the new way of virtual selling and yes we hav...
A warm welcome to our new Butcher shop owners, Luke and Laura! Our commercial leasing agent Amanda Thomas (pictured second from the right) did a great job organising the lease for this business and we hope that Millicent residents take this opportunity to support locals. So far we have only heard good things about their products! Check out George Street Gourmet Meats on Facebook.
Our Team could not be more honoured to have been nominated for a Millicent Business Community Assosication outstanding business award. We are all also very proud of our Property Manager Michelle Skeer who has been nominated for an individual award as well. Thank you to all our clients and friends for your ongoing support and congratulations to all the other businesses who have been nominated too, we're sure it is well deserved!
We are more than happy to have contributed $1,000 from our Community Funnel towards the purchase of a new kiln at the Millicent Community Arts and Crafts Hub. They have made some serious efforts to raise as much money as they have so far, with still a way to go before they can get their new replacement kiln, but every little bit helps! It is so important that groups in our community such as this one are supported, which is what our Community Funnel is all about
We would like to thank everyone who supported the SEPSM Community Funnel by purchasing a showbag, a bottle of water or having a guess at our jelly bean jar at our stall at the Geltwoood Festival on Sunday, April 7th. All the money raised will be donated back into the community by us through funding various events and projects.
Exciting news today!
SEPSM is a RateMyAgent Agent of the Year Award Winner in 2019! This puts us in the top 7% of all agents in Australia! An amazing achievement which wouldn't be possible without the support of all our friends and clients.
We are excited to welcome Sian, our new administration trainee joining us for 2019.
Sian will be welcoming our clients at the front desk, as well as assisting the team in Property Management, Sales and Marketing throughout the year. She has a bright bubbly personality and is looking forward to the challenge of a busy office workplace and learning about the Real Estate Industry.
Sian completed her schooling at Kangaroo Inn Area School, achieving results which were of a high standard. She enjoys creative writing and was awarded an Andre Excellence in Literature Award in 2018. Over recent years, Sian has also worked locally in hospitality and volunteered with SA Ambulance Service as an Ambulance Assist Officer.

It's not very often that a small, country town agency is announced as a finalist for the Real Estate Institute of South Australia Awards.
A couple of months ago, we had the privilege of being announced as one of the REISA Awards finalists for the category of Real Estate Agency of the Year - Small, recognising the most outstanding real estate agencies in South Australia.
In mid-October, our team was spoilt with a trip to Adelaide to attend the awards. It quickly became noticeable that our Agency would have likely been the only agency within 200kms of metro Adelaide to be announced as a finalist. The achievement of being in the top 10 'small' real estate agencies in itself was humbling. However, to then discover that we were one of the only, if not the only, agency from regional Australia to have made it to this point was an incredible fete for anyone.
Although we did not win our category, our title as a 2018 REISA Awards finalist is r...
To all out valued family and friends, clients and customers,
WOW.. Two years ago, I decided to take the plunge and venture out under my own banner, and so SOUTH EAST PROPERTY SALES AND MANAGEMENT was born. And boy on reflection I am amazed and humbled at how far we have come and what we have achieved. It’s been such a fabulous ride so far and I am grateful to have had several staff members join my team and enjoy the journey with me.
Recently we welcomed Amanda Thomas to our team to work alongside Michelle in Property Management, as our rent roll grows I want to ensure the professionalism our clients are accustomed to continues and every facet is running smoothly.
We have had our Admin Trainees and all of us have enjoyed watching them grow as they transition from year 12 Secondary School student and move into a fast-paced work environment where they are trained, challenged, lear...
A couple of weeks ago, in mid August, we had the pleasure of attending the MBCA Business Awards.
It was a lovely night and was beatifully put together by the MBCA comittee and associations.
South East Property Sales and Management were nominated for the Service Award by our generous clients. Unfortunately we did not win this heavily contested catagory; however, the nomination in itself was a humbling gesture. The number of businesses nominated was a true testimate to the level of customer service that they provide to our community.
As the night had progressed, we were surpised with the announcement that South East Property Sales and Management had won the Community Spirit Award for 2018. This award was not open to nomiation from the public, and so we were unaware that we would receive such an accalade.
Although praise and acknowledgement is not the motive behind our culture, rather the responsibility and commitment to give b...
Thanks to Realestate.com and Advantage Community Grants we have been able to donate a $1500 community grant toward the up-and-coming Nature Play Area in the Millicent park-lands.
We look forward to seeing this area develop and progress into an unstructured and free outdoor play area for the public to enjoy.
We were super excited to deliver a $200 cheque to the lovely staff and children at Gladys Smith Early Learning Centre. The money will be put towards redeveloping one of their sandpits and purchasing a sludge pump!
It was a privilege to get a tour of the site, and witness and learn about the passion that the staff at Gladys Smith have for early childhood education - so much innovation!
