Spotlight on Inspired Business Owners - The Property Co. Group

This month we are excited to chat to John Daewoud, the owner of The Property Co Group

Name: John Daewoud
Your business name: The Property Co Group
Industry: Real Estate

Please give us a brief description of your business (what you do, how long you’ve been in business etc)
We are a real estate agency located in Caringbah specialising in Residential Sales, Project Marketing and Property Management, We launched our brand in November 2017 and Started trading on the 15th January 2018

What inspired you to start your business?
My business partner and I have been successfully working in real estate for approximately 13 years each. After achieving great results and putting all our energy into our career in other companies we thought it was about time that the next successful goal we achieve is to open our agency with our own brand and creating our own story where we would be able to make a point of difference in the industry

What is your business motto, personal mantra or favourite quote?
We don’t really have a business motto however, one quote that stands by me that I have it printed and stuck on the back of my phone is “Your endurance and persistence will be rewarded”

What advice would you give to others wanting to start a business?
My advice is, make sure that you are comfortable in your industry and give it your best. It is so rewarding in many ways when you are able to look at something you created.

How do you market your business and what works best for you?
We are very open with our marketing, we currently have advertising on billboards, a bus and a large social media presence. As a real estate agency networking with the community is also important and I still believe this works the best.

Do you have business mentors? Who do you seek advice from? Who do you look up to in business or strive to be like?
My very first boss in real estate is my mentor, I admired his work ethic and his quality of his work and how we dealt with people. 13 years later I will still speak to him for guidance. Another mentor I do look up to is the owner of Century 21 Australasia

What are the best and worst things about owning your own business?
The best thing about owning your own business is the satisfaction of doing something everyday for yourself. Running a business is like having a child, it may keep you up at night but you wake up every morning loving it.

What has been your most satisfying moment in business?
My most satisfying moment is the day that I had a brand attached to my company, might not seem big for many but it is overly satisfying. I remember the day we agreed on our Business name and Logo and it was special.

What are some of the biggest mistakes you have made in your business?
None at this stage thankfully!

What is the best book you have ever read?
The Da Vinci Code, great read if you haven’t read it before

What is one item on your bucket list?
Trip to Iceland and see the Northern Lights

Where do you get your inspiration?
I believe inspiration comes from everything in life and not just one thing in particular. It comes from connecting the dots between new things you have seen or heard & learned. Your mind will feed off all these different things and give you something that creates inspiration. This is how I get inspired, there wouldn’t be only one thing that inspires me but a collection of many things.
