McGrath Mid North Shore agent Peter Chauncy named Australia’s top estate agent by Real Estate Business

McGrath Mid North Shore agent Peter Chauncy has ranked as Australia’s top estate agent, according to a new Top 100 survey by industry magazine Real Estate Business.

Chauncy, who sells property in Chatswood, Crows Nest, Lane Cove and Naremburn, racked up 79 property sales over the 2011 calendar year worth $88 million.

The rankings were compiled based on a range of criteria including sales volumes, sales numbers and average sale prices.

Chauncy admits to being a workaholic who works 75 hours each week, but says he loves it.

“I really am passionate, and that enthusiasm and passion really rubs off on people, and I think that’s been a key part to our success,” he says.

Chauncey will become principal at the new McGrath Crows Nest office when it opens in August this year.

His most recent sale was a 1,094-square-metre site on Talus Street in Naremburn, which he sold alongside David Howe for $2.655 million. The site has approval for an eight-apartment complex.

Another McGrath agent, Wayne Vaughan from the Epping office, ranked fifth on the list, with sales of $73 million. Four McGrath agents made it into the top 10, and 10 were among the top 100.

Ray White dominated the list, with 17 out of the top 100 spots.

Edward Hobbs from Biggin & Scott Richmond ranked second ($81 million in sales) followed by Ric Serrao from Raine & Horne Double Bay ($74 million) and Glen Coutinho from hockingstuart Hawthorn ($85 million)

In dollar terms, Jason Boon from Richardson & Wrench Elizabeth Bay/Potts Point ranked first, with $130 million worth of sales from just 55 transactions.

Jay Standley from Barr and Standley Real Estate Bunbury, WA, managed the highest number of sales at 189 (or more than one sale every two days) to rank 53rd overall.

The top female agent was Karen Vogl from hockingstuart Ringwood in Melbourne’s eastern suburbs, who clocked up $80 million in sales and ranked 11th overall.

Nearly half (47) of the top 100 were NSW agents. There were 17 each from Victoria and Queensland and 14 frm WA.

The top 100 was based on agency submissions and received over 400 submissions, according to Alex Whitlock, publisher of Real Estate Business.
