AFTER 10 years with Ray White, Susan Taylor has relaunched her Subiaco-based business as Centro Estates, an independent agency.
Ms Taylor said she had enjoyed being part of a major group but felt the need to stretch her wings.
“There were some things I couldn’t achieve under the franchise and I really felt like I had to make the change,” she said.
“I have lived and worked here for over 25 years and I felt like it was time to be authentically me and really show the western suburbs how much I love working in real estate.”
The team received a positive response to the change and new look.
Ms Taylor said since becoming independent they had changed some ways of doing business, including trying to reduce paperwork where possible, advertising differently, opening up to other preferred service suppliers and were currently going through their policies and procedures to tighten the way they operate.
“Selling real estate doesn’t really change. Internally it’s the human resources side and the marketing freedom we get to be most creative with,” she said.
As local agents, Ms Taylor and her team are very keen to participate in their community as much as possible, as well as support charities close to their hearts.
Centre Estates recently sponsored a rider in the Roth Triathlon in Germany and have contributed to Princess Margaret Hospital, Multiple Sclerosis WA and Churchlands Primary School.
Ms Taylor has also signed up for the Perth Ride to Conquer Cancer on October 21 and 22. You can support her at pr17.|conquercancer.org.au.. n
