Hello from Hobart where we are joined by nearly 150 Elite members at our annual Elite conference – celebrating their success and  sharing ideas and learnings to ensure the value they provide clients continues to develop.

The mood among our leading operators remains positive, and as we take a look back over September, our financial results continue recent trends of being softer than prior years but definitely still solid, with a number of positive spots in key markets.

We traded almost $3.4B for the month, which was 10 per cent lower than September 2017.

Commentators have been quick to point out that it’s been 12 months now since the Australian east coast housing correction started. Half of Australia’s capital cities have seen values track lower over the past year and the remaining capital cities, as well as regional markets, recorded slowdowns in annualised growth as the housing downturn became more broadly based.
