Thirty-seven-year-old Sean Sotiralis is an NQF 5 estate agent and former principal of his own estate agency. He joined low-commission estate agency, HomeBid, in July 2017 and was the top agent for August 2018, boasting 12 sales and only narrowly pipping fellow agent, Lauren Lewis.
Sotiralis successfully brought Lewis into HomeBid just five months ago and the two agents each regularly average more than 10 sales a month.
To put this into perspective, when Sotiralis and Lewis were working in Sean’s previous traditional estate agency the entire office of 25 salespeople sold 15 to 20 properties a month!
“Having Sean’s experience as a former principal of his own agency and his patient but persistent manner of selling is inspirational for the other salespeople,” said Cavan Sheahan, CEO of HomeBid. “All of our agents work together supporting each other and helping the sales team and the listing team meet their joint targets as well as their individual targets.
“It’s unique in the estate agency business and our clients often remark how the listing person, sales person, bond facilitator and conveyancing person dovetail and support each other.”
Sotiralis regularly receives great references from his sellers and buyers, with the latest one from Johan van Rooyen who said: “I can’t express myself enough to compliment Sean [Sotiralis] and the entire team for the way they treated us as a client. Thank you again for your professional services and patience with SA Home Loans. I’ll definitely tell everyone about HomeBid.”
HomeBid seller, Ria Austin of Helderkruin, shared a glowing review: “I really had a pleasant experience working with Homebid. Lauren Lewis was really friendly and helpful. She went out of her way and made sure she responded to all my correspondence. I was informed of what was happening the whole time. She was courteous and I will definitely use your services in future. Thank you for taking this journey with us and making it stress free.”
