We're Turning 4!
After years of trying to find the right agency to 'call home' Ian and Gail Gobey realised what they were looking for just didn't exist: a real estate agency that based its business and dealings on real relationships and genuine care for people – whether buyers, sellers, landlords, tenants, suppliers, family, friends, neighbours, other business owners... or any other members of the community – and on keeping it local – completely dedicated to locals and local interests.
So, August 2016 they opened the doors to their own business and Sash & Gable Property was born.
And in just 4 short years what a mark the Sash & Gable Property Team has made on our local community!
- Selling and Rental Price Appraisals for more than 500 local Bayside owners
- Over 350 gorgeous families assisted in transacting real estate sales and purchases
- Dozens of lovely investment properties managed for local landlords
- Placement of more than 500 wonderful tenants in quality rental homes
- Business partners with over 50 local suppliers – including painters, plumbers, electricians, cleaners, gardeners, photographers, property stylists, handy-people, conveyancers, brokers, and many more
- And proud sponsors and supporters of many local community causes
And in evidence of just how highly Sash & Gable Property is regarded and valued by their clients in doing what they do... they have since early days consistently outperformed others being recognized by Rate My Agent as 'the best of the best' across multiple dimensions and collecting numerous awards including:
- Agent of the Year (Wynnum West) 2018 – Gail Gobey
- Agent of the Year (Wynnum) 2019 – Gail Gobey
- Agent of the Year (Wynnum) 2020 – Gail Gobey
- Agency of the Year (Wynnum) 2020 – Sales
- Agency of the Year (Wynnum) 2020 – Property Management
What do Gail and Ian consider to be the ‘Secret’ to Sash & Gable Property’s Success?
Our ‘Home’ and Our Team
'Certainly, having the right Team is paramount. Our office is styled like our home and we consider our Team – including our extended network of associates and suppliers – to be our S&G Family. We even have our little dog Sasha, who started the business with us 4 years ago as a puppy, in the office with us every day. Our little 'CEO' (Client Engagement Officer). She brings such joy to everyone...'
'We treat everyone as a VIP. We care for our clients and suppliers as we would for our own family members. Managing properties and transacting real estate deals can be a highly stressful business – and we know that – so we try to take as much of the angst out of the process as possible – and engage with people as we would want to be engaged with ourselves. Honestly and authentically. Our clients tell us the 'care factor' at Sash & Gable is unsurpassed, and that is exactly what we want...'
Innovation and Technology
'Often boutique businesses are just not positioned or capable of keeping up with the Big Boys when it comes to technology and industry best practices... We were determined to be at the 'leading edge' from the outset. Our CRM platform is world class and has been tweaked to cater for our particular needs including advanced AI capabilities to assist our Agents in managing both their sellers and prospective buyers in unbeatably comprehensive ways.
Highly Relevant and Real Time Communication
'Posting a few things willy-nilly on Facebook or on a website that no-one visits is useless. We’ve cracked it. Our website has had over 15,000 visitors since inception; all our portals – including our own website, domain.com, realestate.com and Agency Window (our digital office window) display real time property details, images and videos – our Agents can change the details on their phones and 'bang' it's up live through all our portals instantaneously. And our social media platforms are going crazy with exponential growth and raving fans...'
But... the Story has only just begun...
So... at just 4 years young this month Sash & Gable Property is very much on-track versus Gail and Ian's goals, but they tell us with such excitement and enthusiasm that 'this is just the beginning... we have so much more in store... we will continue to surprise and delight everyone...'.
Gail and Ian would like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank all Sash & Gable Property's dear friends and growing family including clients, suppliers, and all those it has had the pleasure of supporting in the local Bayside community over the past 4 years – and if the Team can help you in anyway please reach out. We are here to help.
