Kylie Harbo – A typical Monday at Johnson Property Group

The minute I walk into the door after school drops off my Mondays always start with buyer callbacks from the weekend.  We discuss the property market, new opportunities, and what I can do to help. 

After the weekend home opens it’s also time for me to ensure the sales admin has the documents they need from accepted offers, and ensure the buyers and sellers are aware of the next steps to get their properties to settlement. 

Off to Nollamara for a photo shoot on a tenanted home I am selling, it was a quick turnaround from listing the sellers last week to asking the tenants to tidy up for professional photos. I went in early to do whatever I could do from dusting, tidying, and fluffing pillows. Whatever it takes to help enhance the desire to purchase this property. 

I have sent a series of emails to our investor database, informing them that this property is a great addition to a portfolio being 10 years old and is already tenanted. The suburb offered huge capital growth of over 18% last year. Hence, it’s not one to be missed. 

Next up was the Property Manager’s huddle in our board room at the office in Osborne Park. I meet with all the property managers weekly as I do the onboarding of the new rental properties, and April has been a busy month with a lot of handovers to do. 

A mixture of properties that we are retaining from a sale means; a purchase of a tenanted home that is already leased with us to manage. There were also a couple of transfers from other agents so we need to do is collect the file and the keys from the agent, process the paperwork before introducing ourselves to the tenants and continue strengthening the relationship with out new client. 

We have got a numerous properties available for leasing. Before advertising them we ensure our marketing photos are of sound quality, potentially order a for-lease sign board if needed, and determine who in the team will conduct a viewing at the property. From there I help profile the tenant applications we have and align with the intention of our client to find a suitable candidate based on what their desired outcomes are. For example: Are they looking for long-term tenants, is the property furnished, are pets considered? Amongst other questions, these are all things we consider before making our recommendations to the landlord and start with the tenant screening. 

Next up I’m off to two pre-purchase inspections in Mount Lawley and Jolimont with buyers.  The Mount Lawley inspection (a tenanted property) was with a buyer who is an investor and the buyer of  Jolimont will be taking occupation of the property. We check that all electrical plumbing and gas fixtures are in good working order, keys to lockable devices function and that all is in line with the contract and ready for settlement which is usually within 7 days after the inspection. 

Due to the care and attention to detail of our property managers, this makes handing over these properties to the successful buyer a breeze knowing there isn’t anything for them to fix or repair straight up.

Aside from networking and presenting myself to new potential clients, I am following up on appraisals I have completed and face-to-face appointments with new business clients both sales and rentals.

Don’t worry I still got to eat lunch. 

Mondays have to be my favorite day of the week, I love my diverse workload and the team that supports me to achieve property goals for my clients. 

21 years under my belt and I’m only just getting started.
