Just a couple of things before we get down to business…
Another week in the office and we’re busy as always. We are doing a bit of maintenance on our website so some properties might not be showing up properly. Maintenance will be finished by Monday next week…
You might have noticed our new company video last week…A little sneak peek into what the Nook Property brand represents.
It was our senior property manager Gia-Dene’s birthday the other day, and Wendy-Ann our Sales Administrator baked a banana cake. It was delicious 🙂 … Below is the recipe! It was too good to not share with everyone.
EASY PEASY BANANA CAKE

- 1/4 cup of milk
- 1 teaspoon of lemon juice
- 1 cup of sugar
- 2 cups of self raising flour

Recent news on the property market has indicated a bit of a dip in the median house sales prices across Perth as well as an increase in the time properties spend on the market.

The team at Nook invest a lot of time into properly marketing properties and just last week our Sales Director wrote offers well over the suburbs expected sale price for 2 properties. One of which was listed for only 5 days!
