THRIVING in a tough market is always a challenge but the team at Acton Mount Lawley has done just that.

The team capped off a strong year by taking home a swag of awards at the Acton Annual Awards night.

Acton chief executive Travis Coleman said the event, held at Crown Perth, was an opportunity to recognise the hard work and outstanding achievements of the organisation’s brightest stars across a network of 21 offices.

“From administration staff right through to our top salespeople, great results can only be achieved by great people working together effectively – and this night is the perfect way to congratulate them,” he said.

Sales executive Natalie Hoye was crowned top salesperson for Acton Mount Lawley and was presented with a gold outstanding achievement, while directors Carlos Lehn and Paul Owen received platinum achievement awards for outstanding sales results.

Sales executive Jason Ryan received bronze.

Mr Lehn said the motivated team had embraced the challenges of the tougher conditions and adapted to the market with dedication and consistent motivation.

“We are proud of our team’s results and look forward to another successful year for Acton Mount Lawley,” he said.

“We would also like to recognise and congratulate our fantastic property management team who have increased our rental portfolio by 10 per cent.”

Subiaco-based Acton Central also experienced awards success, taking home the award for Property Management Region of the Year (Income), while sales executive Louis Carr received the award for Auction of the Year and director Peter Beckton received the Celebration Award.

Mr Beckton said there was plenty of competition in the world of property management, and having an enthusiastic and motivated team had led to impressive results along with steady growth.

“It has been a year where to achieve success you must revert back to basics and provide good solid service at a reasonable price,” he said.

The Auction of the Year award was presented to Mr Carr for the sale of 12 Alexander Street, Wembley.

He was also named Acton Central’s sales champion and received a gold outstanding achievement award.

Mr Beckton said Mr Carr was a consummate professional and a very deserving winner.

“The Auction of the Year was a very impressive result considering the miserable weather on the day, with a huge rain storm before the start,” he said.

“There were 60 people present, and several serious buyers, and the price achieved was above the reserve.”

The Celebration Award recognises a respected member of the Acton network and Mr Beckton said it was a moment he would not forget.

“I’m into my 17th year with Acton and I never expected to be the recipient of this very special award,” he said.

“I feel very humbled to have been recognised by my peers and this is a highlight of my career.”

Acton Mandurah was named Business of the Year for the third consecutive year.
