What’s Happening at Absolute: 5 Highlights From This Quarter

Darwin’s most experienced real estate agency, we’re passionate about giving our tenants, owners and vendors the exceptional service they need to get the most out of their properties. For us, there is always an opportunity to improve and grow as a team, both professionally and personally. To give you a look into what we’ve been up to at Absolute, here are our top 5 highlights from the last few months.

1. We went to the REINT Awards
The Real Estate Institute of Northern Territory - or REINT as they’re also known - is the organisation that our industry looks to for training, innovation and understanding about what it means to be a qualified and skilled property professional in the NT. A few weeks ago, Absolute attended the REINT Awards for Professional Excellence, where all of our Property Managers and Sales Agents were nominated in their respective categories for Public Choice Salesperson of the Year and Public Choice Property Manager of the Year.
It was a fantastic night to celebrate the efforts of our team and get all dressed up. We’d like to thank everyone at REINT for having us and putting on a great night. We also send a big congratulations to our fellow nominees and of course, the winners for 2023!
2. We celebrated birthdays and work anniversaries
In team news, our Property Managers Jo Duncan and Tania McKenzie both celebrated their birthdays in September and October with lots of love (and cake) from the Absolute office. Tania also celebrated her 5-year work anniversary with Absolute. Well done to Jo and Tania, we are so lucky to have you both working with us!
3. We welcomed a new team member Mik Grist
A few months ago we welcomed our new Leasing Manager, Mik Grist who has been a great addition to our team!
Prior to making the jump to real estate, Mik was cooking up a storm in an impressive 15 year hospitality career as head chef in the mines in a FIFO worker position. A tough but rewarding role that required the ability to adapt, manage time and stay organised, Mik’s love of people and care when working with his team each day is a testament to his character, and reflection of a capable, proactive worker.
He is a self-confessed people person who holds honesty and integrity as his most important values. Mik is someone who is driven to problem solve, lend a hand and find the best possible outcome to suit all parties. To learn about our latest rentals for lease, visit our website here.
4. We’ve received wonderful feedback from our tenants and owners
Being told that our clients are happy with our service and processes is one of the best compliments you can receive, as is having a strong relationship where they feel comfortable sharing those experiences in the first place. Here are two recent 5-star testimonials we received that made our day:
“Sophie Herschell as a property manager has made the rent life as easy as it comes!! Always tending to every need, replying to emails and phone calls within a few hours and giving you the feeling she has your back! Best property manager I've ever had!!”
-Thomas A. (Tenant)
“Upon enlisting Maria to help us sell our house, Maria advised that what we were trying to achieve - selling to purchase in an 8 week turn around, was not a traditionally done act in the real estate world…
It is truly through Maria's over and above efforts that made the goal achievable and complete. Maria's ability to hold my hand through the process, and working in with my busy work/mum life - as well as juggling her own family commitments to ensure she puts our sale in the best position possible - never ceased. Any salesperson can sell a house, but to take on a challenging sale of this kind, requires sheer determination, courage, empathy and confidence. All of which Maria has an abundance of.”
-Kylie (Owner)
Thank you to Thomas and Kylie for sharing your experiences and for working with us!
