Homely.com.au grows sales team to fuel expansion

Homely welcomes new team members in Sydney and Melbourne with further growth anticipated in 2016.

MELBOURNE, VIC – May 13, 2016

Free-to-list real estate portal Homely.com.au announces several new appointments across its Sydney and Melbourne teams.

Employee numbers are set for continued growth during the remainder of 2016 on the back of the successful launch of the Premier Agent product, which was introduced to the market in late February 2016.

NSW Sales Manager, Rob Trovato is excited to announce that the Sydney team has expanded with the recent appointment of Michael Poulos.

"Michael comes with a wealth of knowledge and expertise, having worked as a sales agent and as a leading auctioneer...This experience and market knowledge places him well to assist and understand the challenges agents are faced with", Rob says.

Michael's addition to the team comes soon after that of another well respected industry figure: Matt McGrath.

Matt was appointed to look after the eastern suburbs and north shore. Matt has extensive industry experience having worked as an agent for one of the strongest boutique agencies in Sydney's eastern suburbs.

National Sales Director Rocky Bartolotto is also pleased to announce the hiring of Rory Cook and Kasia Brennan in Melbourne.

"Both Rory and Kasia are well equipped with a detailed understanding of the Melbourne property market, having worked in the industry for several years", Rocky says.

"I'm delighted to welcome all four new staff to the Homely crew. It's an exciting time as we continue to grow and drive competition among the existing Australian property portals", Rocky says.

"We frequently hear reports that other portal prices are increasing, sometimes twice a year, so our free to list platform is one that is needed and here to stay", Rocky explains.

"We strive to constantly evolve, to do something no other portal is doing and are looking to provide the best agent profiles and branding products currently on the market", Rocky says.

Since launching Premier Agent in February the uptake among agents has been well received.

"We've seen many high profile agents and offices embrace Premier Agent and they're quickly seeing the benefits of community engagement the platform offers in creating new leads...this is something that just can't be matched by our competition", Rocky says.

Two years ago Homely started out with just four staff and has come a long way in a short time. Homely now has over 20 full-time employees, with expansion and recruitment across all states set to continue over the next six months in all divisions of the Homely team.
