ONE big win for Torquay agency named International Office of the Year
ONE Agency Surf Coast was awarded International Office of the Year 2021 at the One Agency Australasian Real Estate Awards held virtually last week.
The Torquay-based agency led by Shaun O’Callaghan was crowned this year’s winner ahead of 160 other One Agency offices from across Australia, New Zealand and Fiji.
Paul Davies, CEO and founder of One Agency Group, surprised Shaun with the news of the award win via Facebook live.
Mr Davis said he remembered shaking Shaun’s hand at Sydney Airport back when he was at the beginning of his start-up journey, and now Shaun is the principal of a thriving business and international office of the year.
One Agency also took home the Excellence in Marketing and Branding Australia Award for its innovative marketing approach, specifically its 2021 Surf Coast calendar photo competition and exhibition.
“Getting the brand right is not an easy thing and some agents take a lazy approach, but Shaun hasn’t done that, he has represented the brand beautifully and that’s really important to us,” Mr Davies said.
Mr O’Callaghan said he was surprised and honoured by the award.
“Being a reasonably young business, it’s a true testament to our hardworking team to be recognised for our results, dynamic marketing and community spirit across the entire network,” he said.
“I know everyone is looking forward to getting back into the office so we can celebrate in person.”
Adding to One Agency’s list of accomplishments, it also claims the number one spot for the most homes sold in postcode 3228 over the last three months, according to realestate.com.au.
