What our real estate clients have said... What our real estate clients have said... What some agents had to say about increasing their fees... "I would like to thank you for assisting us, prior to getting you to come in, I thought I had a good idea on our fee structure and how it stood in regards to others, however I have worked out now that we don’t promote our quality of service enough and actually discounted quite considerably. The guidance provided has made increasing parts of our fee structure easy and all new clients have also had no issues with the adjusted fees." Jamie Horner- Principal, Empire Estate Agents, East Victoria Park, Perth WA "Though our property numbers haven't had much net growth in the last 6 months, our cashflow and income has grown substantially, thanks to our fee maximisation with current clients, as well as the improved fees we get with new clients" Kimberley Yeeles- Director, Yeeles Property Management, Glenalta SA "We recently added four new fees to our overall fee structure. When we added these fees with current clients, our expectations were exceeded and we only lost a small percentage of properties, and our overall fee income increased far more than expected" Brian Stevens, Principal- Excel Property Specialists, Browns Plains QLD "Last financial year we grew our portfolio size by 42%, however our revenue growth was 63.5% due to increased fees with new and current clients, thanks to the assistance of Darren's expertise." Jason Wright- BDM and Co-Owner, Essential Property Management, Gawler, SA "When we increased our fees with our current clients, out of about 200 landlords increased, we lost 4 properties, 3 of which were not considered good quality. But since then my staff have a strong belief they are worth our new fees and now understand the importance of strong negotiation to defend and justify our new fee structure with new business as well." Tennille Mugridge- Director of Home Specialist Property Management, Central Coast NSW "Under Darren's guidance and advice, we increased our fees and overall income very successfully. The result was that our profit margin grew by another 50% overnight. Normally we would have had to grow another 50% more properties to get the same result, but it was all done with the business we already had, without rent roll growth required." Daren Morris- Principal, LJ Hooker Golden Grove and LJ Hooker Salisbury. "After Darren's fee maximization training here in my office in Florida, my team haven't stopped getting better and more profitable ancillary fees since. I have been amazed at what fees we have been able to successfully charge with clients, other than my base management fee. This was a very profitable and worthwhile training session indeed!" Todd Breen- Broker, Home Property Management and sales, West Palm Beach, Florida- USA “We have successfully increased our total fee income per property by 23%, and only lost 3 properties from 210 properties fee maximised. Best of all, we have now developed a new profitability mindset towards our rental department” Chris Tsokos- Director of Tsokos Property, Subiaco, Perth WA. "We found the process of increasing our fees successful with current clients and out of about 50 properties increased, we negotiated with about 5 owners and lost one property through the process. Further, we were able to immediately get our improved fee structure with new clients, after Darren's training." Regina Gray- Rent Guru, Beenleigh QLD. “During a profitability partnership with Darren, we have considerably increased our fees and profitability successfully. Our team have also grown in confidence in attaining a new and higher level of fees, but also they have developed a profitability mindset to focussing on quality business, instead of ‘all business’.” Glynn Busson- Principal, Quinn Real Estate Canning Vale, Perth WA. “Using Darren Hunter’s fee maximisation strategies we effectively increased our total department income by 21.7%” Catherine Adams- Office Manager, Elders Real Estate Gawler SA “Over the last 18 months Darren has worked with us in a ‘profitability partnership’. During this time, our profit margin was increased to such an extent that to get the same profit margin results by rent roll growth only, we would have had to double our property numbers. All this was done without increasing our rent roll size or workload.” Garrick McCamey- Principal, MResidential- South Perth, WA. “In just a few months, using Darren’s strategies and training we were able to increase our total monthly fee income by an extra 20%, without growing our rent roll” Bernie Kroczek- Principal, Bernie Kroczek Real Estate- Mt Hawthorn, WA. “We implemented a successful fee maximisation campaign using Darren’s strategies, and in all about 700- 800 landlords had fee increases. The campaign was very successful, and we lost only a very small handful of clients. We found the process to be well worth it, and financially very rewarding.” Howard Morley- Principal, Auckland Property Management, New Zealand. "With Darren’s fee maximisation strategies we were able to successfully add a routine inspection fee, lease renewal fee and end of financial year statement fee, as well as increase our management fees. With the total campaign results we increased our total income overall by 30%!” David Spinks- Professionals Killarney Vale, NSW "We increased our total fee income by approx 25% in 8 weeks without adding any more properties or workload, using Darren's fee maximisation strategies" Michael and John Kemsley- Principals, Professionals Executive Coastal, WA “Using Darren’s profitability strategies we successfully increased and added fees with 270 properties, without any loss of business whatsoever!” John Brandenburg- Principal, Ray White Kalbarri- Kalbarri WA “We have over the last 9 months maximised our fees only to approx. 25% of our portfolio, and have increased our profit margin by an extra 45% using Darren’s training, tools and strategies” Steve Garsed- Managing Director, Collie and Tierney First National- Mildura, VIC Win better fees with new clients How you can get better and higher fees with current owners- step-by-step Case study videos - fee maximisation -Joe from NSW was really surprised with their fee maximisation results. -Howard from NZ first lacked courage- but made it happen! -Andrew from SA is now pleased to be a quality fee charging agency now. -Robyn from WA discusses her surprise when she had her rent roll valued after she increased her fees. -Garrick from WA discusses their fee maximisation campaign results with a large regional rent roll. -Tennille from the Central Coast NSW shares how her staff are more confident than ever selling higher fees. -Tino from Virginia USA first thought they were already too expensive to raise their fees further.
