Celebrating 19 years with Great Ocean Properties
Mim Atkinson migrated to Australia from Holland with her family in 1969.
One of six children, communication and negotiation were learnt at an early age and these traits are some of the reasons for her successful career so far.
A permanent resident of Aireys Inlet since 1999, Mim has developed a great love for the Surf Coast lifestyle.
Having worked in advertising since her early 20s and then running her own agency in South Melbourne for 10 years, the move to Aireys Inlet was a welcome ‘sea change’.
Mim started her real estate career with Great Ocean Properties in 2004.
Working in the real estate industry can be very challenging and time consuming, especially when raising two boys, but with the understanding and support of Great Ocean Properties’ director, Marty Maher, she was able to gain a wealth of knowledge and proven strategies to help her achieve exceptional results for her clients, as well as developing a strong rapport with those she meets.
The culture created by Marty Maher within Great Ocean Properties is always one of professionalism and transparency, seemingly rare in the real estate industry.
If it hadn’t been for this “no smoke and mirrors” attitude, Mim doubts that she would have remained in the industry and, above all, still loving the work that she does.
“It’s difficult to explain how satisfying it is to start and finish a journey with clients looking for either a beach house or permanent home, seeing the smiles of gratitude, and feeling like I have just made new friends, but to this day it still gives me such a thrill,” she said.
Marty Maher, Michelle McDonald and Mim make up the sales team at Great Ocean Properties, with Gypsy Long, Anne McKnight and Ella Connolley providing administration and friendship.
As a Licensed Estate Agent, she has proven to be a skilled negotiator and focuses on ensuring her clients benefit from a personalised service.
Mim takes great pride in prioritising her clients’ interests and ensuring that they have a positive and meaningful experience in what is often one of life’s biggest decisions – selling your home.
Her wealth of knowledge of the evolving local market, clear understanding of vendors’ needs, and excellent advice and communication makes her a breath of fresh air in the real estate profession.
Great Ocean Properties presently holds the record for the top four residential real estate sales on the Surf Coast.
