Catherine’s love for all things social comes from a background in building brand awareness, marketing strategy and lead generation through social media marketing. Understanding the benefits of forming an online community is essential to the strength of a brands presence online.

Navigating the generational swing to all things social media over the last eleven years and the necessity to build community and connection with your clientele Catherine immediately recognised the need for a social media strategy and presence for her agency to ensure they reached a broader audience.
Not only did the creation of an online community occur, but our posts and brand were recognised and shared expanding organic reach and lead generation. With the increase of social media advertising our brand reached greater audiences with a cemented organic community and our already present face of Neesh Property across Instagram, Facebook, Youtube and Google.

Property Management Growth Trainer, Consultant, International Speaker, Coach, and Mentor.
Deniz from bdmcoach.com.au and inspiredgrowthtraining.com is currently based in Brisbane, and previously (until recently) from Nowra on the South Coast of NSW Australia just a few hours’ drive south of Sydney.
Deniz started in fruit. After Deniz left high school he was a fruiterer working in his family business where he sold fruit for most of his working life. One lesson he learned on the job is “There are no emails in fruit!” If a new coffee shop or restaurant opened, Deniz had to call them or go and visit to get their business. It is this mindset that has made him a successful coach in the BDM space.
Deniz personally signed up 900 Properties in 4 years in a country town of no more than 25,000 people. Deniz believes the real estate industry can be operated on the same concept.
It’s all about asking for the business and knowing what experience you can give your clients. He says real estate is not just about collecting rent and charging a fee, but about what services and products you can provide your clients and how much money you can save them if they use you or your services. Deniz enjoyed being an agent and now loves showing others how they can succeed too.
Deniz’s claim to fame as a Business Development Manager came when he personally signed up 900 doors over 4 years in a residential town of 25,000 people. Quite an achievement! Further, he took out the LPMA (Leading Property Managers of Australia) BDM of the Year Award for 2 years in succession in 2012 and 2013. Again, quite an achievement.
On the National Stage.
Further, Deniz’s coaching clients sign up approximately 300 doors per month collectively, by following and implementing his strategies.
Deniz now consults, trains, mentors and key-note presents to agents across Australia, New Zealand, and the United States, through Inspired Growth Training and BDM Coach. Deniz finds training agents to achieve the best possible outcome they can is very rewarding.
“Seeing them achieve their goals or win awards they never thought they could inspire me to be an even better Coach. My goal is your future, as I inspire, I get inspired”.
Deniz excels at assessing real estate teams and finding the ‘blockage’ in an office that may be stopping them from achieving the new business numbers they desire. He says most of the time offices can be so close to getting it right, and it’s just a matter of tweaking a thing or two. After it is fixed, it is then about continued consulting and mentoring so they can become the best in their field. His focus is now growing other people’s rent rolls, and mentoring agents to become market leaders in their area.
On the International Stage.
Deniz also presented for NARPM San Antonio and also the PM Grow Summit in Florida in January 2017 and was highly rated as one of the best speakers at this event. Further Deniz presented ‘Geared for Growth’ in Orlando Florida in February 2018 along with Darren Hunter to the NARPM Orlando Chapter, and again presenting ‘Geared for Growth’ Nevada and also speaking at the NARPM Florida state conference in September 2018, the DoorGrow Summit in Missouri USA in November 2018, and at NARPM Virginia state conference in February 2019.
