Ron Blunden - Tall Poppy
Ron has been selling real estate in the Queenstown Lakes District for the last four years and always struggled to see why the main stream companies charge such high fees, so Ron thought outside the square and worked out a way for people to save thousands of dollar and receive a premium service with Tall Poppy Real Estate.
After 13 years in Australia, managing a successful commodities trading desk for a large multi-national company and part of the Senior Management Team, also reporting to Australian Securities & Investment Commission (ASIC), it was time to come home.
Real estate appeared similar to trading, and with my excellent negotiation skills, seemed like the ideal move, and now I am loving it and own my own company. I have worked with some great agents, but always thought this was an inefficient industry that could be improved. I started talking to the owners of Tall Poppy and found that our philosophy was aligned, so decided to buy the Queenstown Franchise where we can offer awesome service with the latest technology and marketing techniques at the lowest price.
Attitude and people, this is what makes a company great and when you choose the best people, you will have the best company. I am looking forward to building an amazing team in Queenstown and have two amazing agents in Dee and Nick working closely with Head Office/owners and taking on “normal real estate”, changing the way people think about our industry and continue building Tall Poppy as a trusted and respected brand so that people can fully engage with our team and get the best results, and have fun doing it at the same time.
