Driven Dane Adds Accolades to Collection

One of the most accomplished sales agents in the PRDnationwide franchise network continued his winning ways at the Annual Awards Gala Dinner recently, pocketing several more key accolades to boost his already extensive collection.

PRDnationwide Port Stephens top gun Dane Queenan picked up an individual award for the highest exclusive listings and a Diamond Sales Award for the fourth year in succession. Diamond awards are presented to agents based on the volume of transactions over a two year period and Dane has been able to achieve that status since 2011.

Dane also finished second in the rankings for Top Sales agents for the fourth consecutive time – only tipped out of the number one position by PRDnationwide Newcastle sales star George Rafty, who has taken the top award for four years in a row.

Dane is a past winner of the individual sales award, having reached the pinnacle back in 2009-10 – just two years after being named as the franchise network’s Rookie of the Year. When quizzed about how he maintains his incredible record of success in such a highly competitive environment, Dane cited his work ethic and commitment to providing the best possible service to his clients as key elements in delivering results.

“My advice to anyone looking to get into the real estate industry would be to make sure you are 100% committed and dedicated, especially in the first two years of your selling career,” he said.
“That first 12-24 months of selling is like building the foundations on a construction site. If the foundations are done correctly in the beginning, the building will stand forever, but if they’ve been done incorrectly, the building will always have ongoing issues.”

“Real estate is no different, if you structure your business with the correct foundations from the beginning, you will be a very successful agent for the rest of your career.”

“You must work hard now, to work less later!”

PRDnationwide Port Stephens Principal Bruce Gair praised the devotion Dane has shown to maintaining a consistently high standard of performance.

“Since starting at our office, Dane has always shown an extremely high work ethic and has been consistent in his prospecting and gathering feedback,” Mr Gair said. “He has a very approachable manner and has always shown respect to his clients.”

“This is evident in his high amount of referrals. Dane has worked very hard for everything he has achieved.”
