Now in its ninth year, the annual REB Top 50 Sales Office ranking sets the benchmark in identifying Australia’s top-performing offices. Using a number of indicators, including volume and efficiency levels, the REB Top 50 Sales Offices 2021 sets the standard for the country’s best real estate sales teams.
There are three metrics used to determine the rankings within the REB Top 50 Sales Offices 2021: number of properties sold, total dollar volume of properties sold, and an efficiency rating that is determined by the ratio of sales to support staff.
Barry Plant CEO, Mike McCarthy, was thrilled with the recognition the two offices have received. “In a year that saw multiple lengthy lockdowns in Victoria, it’s a testament to the innovation and dedication of the leaders and teams of the Manningham and Rowville offices that they have overcome significant challenges and still managed to make this elite list.”
Managing Director of Barry Plant Manningham, Spiro Drossos, acknowledges that his team was critical to their success. “What I found the most important thing throughout all the challenges of last year was having the right team,” said Spiro Drossos. “Having a strong team culture really wins the day, and having people who are on the same page, who have synergy, and really buy into that team approach has been critical to our success. It really is the best team I have ever led, there is no doubt about that.”
Barry Plant Rowville Director, Brenton Wilson said that communication was the key to their success. “It’s always been a strength for our office,” he said. “We just needed to adapt it to suit the circumstances foisted upon us. Lockdown was particularly problematic, but keeping up our communication with our vendors, prospective vendors, and buyers, and keeping ourselves positive as a team, meant that we were able to fly out of the gates once lockdown ended on Sept 29th. We actually sold 23 properties in the fortnight after lockdown ended!”
