May 17th, 2012 by Geoff Baldwin
WA real estate agents came together at the latest Real Estate Rocks event to advance their real estate skills and to raise much needed funds for Project Brathwaite which is a fund for injured SAS soldiers according to organiser and promoter, Geoff Baldwin.
“We have a wonderful industry here in Western Australia and this is evident when you see around 200 agents come together to improve their skills and knowledge and to get behind a worthy cause”, Mr Baldwin said.
“Project Brathwaite provides health and wellbeing opportunities for former members of the Australian SAS Regiment who have suffered work related injuries or illnesses in the course of their military service.
“As an ex SAS soldier myself I certainly empathise with this charity understanding how important it is to look after the guys who need help after their careers.
“Our inaugural Real Estate Rocks event raised approximately $18,000 for children’s charities, Kids Helping Kids, Friends of Autism and Camp Quality and this one has also been a huge fund raising success.
“Popular eastern states speakers, Glenn Twiddle and Chris Gilmour joined me to present to agents on meeting the challenges of today’s market to provide higher levels of services and results for our clients and to promote professionalism in our industry.
“The Real Estate Rocks in WA brand has been well accepted and we intend to continue bringing quality Australian and International speakers to Perth on a regular basis”, Mr Baldwin said.
