First week of the school holidays down.. High five!
It’s going great here at Wills Auctions. We’ve made it through the first week and we’re amped about the second, school holidays are a blast. Well, they are for me, I’ve been away for most of it!
Last week I spent 3 days in the beautiful Kapiti Coast at Tall Poppy Central, Paraparaumu, working through the very succinct induction programme. I’ve come away with some new ideas, some confirmation on some ideals Lenny and I hold and a whole heap of reading to keep me busy for the next week.
It was a great reminder that Tall Poppy is not just about keeping those low flat fees available to our vendors, it’s about keeping it simple and transparent for all of our customers, raising those industry standards to new heights! I also met the founder and owner, David Graves, a chap with a vision and a lot of very interesting stories. I felt #blessed to have an opportunity to talk with him and gain a deeper understanding of his master plan.
When Lenny started looking for a real estate company that shared his values and ethics, his passion for putting the customer first and his commitment to high customer service standards he felt that Tall Poppy was the best match for him. After spending time with the team this week I can hand on heart say that I’m fully on board. So many of our own philosophies are reflected in their passion for changing real estate in New Zealand.
I cannot wait to get into it. So if you’d like to have a chat about the industry “disruptor” that is Tall Poppy, give me or Lenny a call - we literally won’t shut up about it.
Philosophy of the week:
“If there were no schools to take the children away from home part of the time, the insane asylums would be filled with mothers” ~ Edgar W. Howe
This. On so many levels… bless ‘em.
Sale of the week:
While it may not seem very exciting a near new Mitsubishi fridge generated all the buzz this week. It must have been the separate vege drawer, you know what they say - suns out, salads out.. Ok, so no one says that, but that doesn’t make it not true!
Next week's teaser:
Next week is set to go. We’re getting set for summer here at Wills Auctions, with tents, sleeping bags, paddling pools and patio suites all ready for the upcoming holiday season.
Tall Poppy stuff:
Whilst I’ve been away Lenny has been busy writing up appraisals all over town. If you’d like to get your place on the market give us a call now, we can chat about what needs to be done to be ahead of the pack this summer and work on getting you the best price for your property.
Also it was Tall Poppy's 5th Birthday party last Thursday, had heaps of fun celebrating with this lot! - Congratulations to April Hall on winning $500 towards a garden makeover!
