Geena Court - Principal
I would like to pen a few words in appreciation of Geena Court and her business associations.
My primary involvement with Geena is in Short Term Accommodation property management business where she has managed my room rental at Sunshine Tower.
I have two other properties managed by different agents and Geena’s statements are the least onerous – clearly the easiest to follow and the online database makes it simple to track the present and future rentals.
Other agents’ statements are bogged down with a myriad of management and cleaning fees which erode any attempt to keep the books in the black. It seems that as a property investor our sole purpose in life is to support the army of contractors that feed off the property management market.
I particularly like the habit of giving me a phone call when an issue arises instead of relying on an email which has the potential to be overlooked.
Geena’s management techniques are a breakaway from the norm and clearly cost effective with the use of her own cleaning staff.
Overall, a well planned successful management system - that works.
I have owned this Sunshine Tower unit since 1996 which has endured a short period of success followed by a long and disastrous decline.
The sale price of the units dropped to a fraction of the market price and desperate people took desperate measures.
Following a lengthy period of failed management attempts to resurrect the Tower, Geena played a major part in refereeing the team to turn it around into a successful venture once again.
Geena has a personal commitment to the building and is determined to get a fair deal for the owners. She rallied a group of unit owners who where keen on selling and used a united approach by offering a package deal to investors.
This approach has paid off, contracts have been signed and a number of owners are looking ahead to a brighter future in 2018.
Geena may have won an award for ‘Business Woman of the Year 2006’ but in my opinion, she deserves the additional honour of ‘Business Woman of the Year 2017’
I have no hesitation in recommending Short Term Accommodation for rental management and Court House Realty for property sales.
I look forward to using Geena in the future for the sale of my other property in Cairns.
It is not often that you will get to know someone who will go way beyond the boundaries of expectation. Especially in the Real Estate Industry. Geena and Court House realty have helped not just me but others in a long drawn out quest that will finally come to an end.
It is not just a level of professionalism that needs to be commended but her ongoing personal involvement that requires the highest levels of respect, commendation and gratitude.
Geena certainly has your best interest in mind at all times and will go the extra mile and get the results you are after.
Many Thanks for your involvement and assistance in bringing my personal Sunsine Tower saga to a resounding conclusion.
This outcome speaks volumes in respect of the professionalism and personnel commitment of yourself and the team behind you
I've bought and sold properties with Geena over the last few years and she has my highest recommendation. The first property I bought with Geena I was a real estate agent sceptic. No way was Geena actually going to listen to me about what I wanted, she would just try and sell me a stale overpriced property that didn't tick any of my boxes. Well I am happy to say that I was proven completely wrong! There was no stale property at all; Geena used her incredible network to find a property that wasn't even on the market, ticked the boxes and we agreed on a contract the same day. Most importantly for me, no BS.
I've also sold two properties with Geena with both of them being sold in 2 days and both with big smiles on my face. The second property I listed with Geena as I was about to depart on an overseas holiday and I joked with Geena that I expected a deal by the time I landed which was to match the previous 2 day sale. Well, when I turned my phone upon arrival there was an offer and before I had left the airport we had negotiated a deal.
All of my experiences with Geena have been simply amazing and the results are not accidental or coincidental. This is what you get when you deal with Geena, the benefit of her incredible real estate experience and no BS. Just the result you want.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your team for taking on the management role of my studio unit since the collapse of the previous business in place.
It is with relief that I now enjoy confidence from experiencing your competent handling of all matters thus far and being kept efficiently in the loop with company procedures.
I am delighted in your proposal for the building as that would obviously raise the standard of operation to the next level.
First I would like to thank you for your commitment to helping us. You have started to restore my faith in humanity.
I am writing to thank you and give you a recommendation. You have helped me so much with my unit and I can't thank you enough. You have been very professional and have dealt with any issues ASAP and with the utmost respect for all.
I look forward to working with you in the future.
In all my dealing with you, you have been absolutely professional, courteous and enthusiastic.
Let me start by first saying 'Thank you for everything'
As you are aware I have been buying investment properties for most of my life and have dealt with many agents in my time and have very disappointed in their attitudes and work ethic. It would be honest to say that I was quite reluctant to contact you when I first received your letter (Here we go again I said to myself).
To my surprise and astonishment you definitely proved me wrong in my thoughts about agents. I have been most impressed with yourself and the team. You definitely have a passion and commitment which has superseded my expectations and a tenacity which eliminates all concerns from an investors point of view.
So one again I would like to thank you and the team for a job well done and look forward to future dealings.
All the best and keep up the good work.
As my association with you Geena, and your business, is only a couple of weeks I will summarise my observations:
1. An Achiever, dogged determination and can-do attitude
2. Is totally committed to her career where workings hours have no bounds
3. Game to tackle any challenges
4. A positive, friendly approach to people while still remaining totally honest
5. Has the ability to create a team culture and maintain a close association with her staff
6. Has long-term staff who have followed her through various ventures
7. Deals with issues now and reports back to the client at earliest convenience
8 Long term experience in the real estate business with local knowledge and resources to burn
All the best
We have known Geena Court for almost 5 years.
She is consistently positive, professional and dedicated to customer service.
Geena obviously values the importance of establishing and maintaining quality relationships with both her customers and colleagues. Her team are motivated and always approachable, a reflection of her sound training and people management skills. When dealing with the special needs of the customer she has integrity, genuine concern and sensitivity.
Geena's business acumen and knowledge of the real estate industry are impressive.
During the time we have know Geena we have purchased five and sold three properties using Court House Realty. Geena and her team have always been attentive and supportive.
I first met Ms Geena Court six years ago when I bought my first property at which time I was struck by her honesty and sincerity.
Since then my wife and I have entrusted our properties to her company and have received nothing less than first class service throughout. Geena is a pleasure to work with and we have no hesitation in leaving our properties in her very capable hands. Her honesty, integrity and attention to detail are unique in her field.
I am honoured to provide a testimonial to such an outstanding business woman and someone who has provided so much to Far North Queensland.
Over recent years we have engaged the services of Geena and Court House Realty in both buying and selling property. Geena's professional approach to the Real Estate business is of the highest quality and ensures that every detail is completely attended to.
It is, however, in the personal attention that is afforded to her clients that makes 'Court House Realty' an outstanding service. The completion stage of any transaction is never reached until all doubts have been removed and the smallest detail has been explained.
There is no doubt that the one main reason for the success of Court House Realty is the ability that Geena has to enthuse her staff with the same dedication that she herself possesses. Every inquiry, large or small is met with courteous, enthusiastic consideration.
That Court House Realty enjoys the reputation that is so rightly deserves is without any doubt due to its enthusiastic and dedicated principal Geena Court
I have known Geena Court for over 12 years in the Real Estate Business.
Geena is an 'example' for Real Estate. She displays:-
1. First Class Appearance
2. Knows or learns quickly the salient points
3. Has a pleasant personal approach
4. Is not aggressive or overbearing at any dealing stage
5. Has learnt her profession well
6. Is totally respected by her staff
7. Her sales corroborate the above
It has been my pleasure to give this testimonial to a worthy person.
I have known Geena Court in my professional capacity for about ten years. In that time, I have seen her mature as a business person to the point where she operates a very successful real estate agency.
Geena has always been a very successful sales person but as we all know, owning and operating a busienss is very different from being employed by a business. She has implemented systems and staffing to ensure the success of her agency.
Her motto of 'Where service and professionalism is an absolute pleasure' says it all. Geena's commitment to provide above average service is what motivates her.
I first came across Court House Realty when I was searching the internet for prospective properties in Queensland. The Court House Realty site caught my attention. The site has a professional yet friendly approach and from the very first telephone call to Court House Realty I have received nothing but excellent customer service.
Being a first time property investor the whole process of purchasing a property, let alone in another state was a little overwhelming. I am happy to say that the service I have received over the past several moths has been impressive and very reassuring to say the least.
Recently my partner and I holidayed in Queensland and visited Cairns for a brief time. We were greeted at our hotel and taken directly to our property so that we could peruse our purchase. We were made to very very welcome with courteous and friendly demeanour.
Geena has helped make this experience a more relaxed and confident one. Her pleasant manner and willingness to assist, not to mention her promptness in replying to our queries has assisted us immensely.
Court House Realty is a company which has a focus on real customer service and integrity and I would not hesitate to recommend its services to any friend or family member of mine.
We have had the pleasure of knowing Geena Court for over 10 years now.
In that time Geena has guided us through several purchases and sellings. Firstly a unit in Manunda, a block of land in Kamerunga and the building of our family home in Redlynch.
Geena has many qualities you can only admire in a person. Qualities such as caring for clients, honesty and integrity.
Recently she took time out of her busy schedule to give us financial advice. She spent several hours assessing our needs and making several phone calls to people who could assist us. Geena was of immense help to us knowing there was no financial gain in it for her.
I have no hesitation in recommending Geena to prospective clients. Not only is Geena a fantastic Real Estate Agent but also a community leader in her chosen field.
She is admired for her ability to juggle a busy work schedule and maintain a balanced life.
We feel lucky to consider Geena our financial confident but even more so honoured to think she is a friend of our family.
I just wanted to let you know how pleased we have been with the service your office has provided us over the past few weeks. I have nothing but praise for both yourself and Sarah. You guys are FANTASTIC and I would like you to pass our comments around the office. I would be very happy to recommend your office to anyone I know.
In June last year, I wanted to start marketing my new development on Clifton Beach which I tried to sell in 2000 with a different real estate agent, and with no success. I was recommended to Court House Realty and after my first meeting with Geena Court I was convinced, she was the one to do it. Her attitude, ideas and resume spoke for itself.
Over the next couple of months and close liaison with Geena, she sold 40% of this development before Christmas, in the meantime I have only 2 left so my development is a success.
I believe the success is solely contributed to Geena's qualities. On top of that she is always keeping me informed of what's happening and that on its own is a pleasant experience. It allows me to focus on other things.
Her personality, dedication and enthusiasm on this project have been outstanding and I would not hesitate to recommend her and her professional staff to anyone.
At this stage, I'm looking, together with Geena at another development and again her dedication and knowledge of the industry is valuable to me.
Again I have enjoyed working with Geena and still am
I've known Geena court for the past two years and Geena has been selling my developments during this period, with her commitment, professionalism and always giving 200%, we have sold 28 units before construction was completed.
Her enthusiasm from choosing the right site, designing the buildings to picking the colours has made Geena a very valuable asst to my company. Many a time we have spoken late at night or on week-ends to get the job 'just right'.
We are currently designing our next project and I feel secure in knowing Geena Court is at the helm.
I have no hesitation in recommending her for any project.
Over the past 2 years Geena has marketed and sold over 50 townhouses for our company.
Geena has not only sold the Townhouses but also assisted in site selection, design and colour schemes.
We have nothing but the highest praise for Geena, her dedication and professionalism to our projects has been outstanding.
Despite Geena's enormous workload she has the ability to make you feel that you are her only client.
It is with great pleasure that I write on behalf of Ms Geena Court, Principal of Court House Realty in Cairns, Queensland.
In August 2002, I employed Court House Realty to project market Thakral Holdings latest Far North Queensland venture, the 108 unit development in Palm Cove, Amphora Resort.
Geena Court was appointed Project Sales Manger. Over the next four months, Geena Court has successfully seen the project sell 75% of all stock off-the-plan and Geena quickly earned the respect of all Thakral managers.
I believe the success of the sales regime is attributed to Geena;s personal and sales ship qualities, both through the long hours of her face-to-face on site selling abilities and her always up-to-date administrative skills.
Geena possesses an unmistakable enthusiasm and is dedicated to her occupation which has seen her business grow from strength to strength. Geena is always well presented, very approachable, candid, yet professional.
Having Geena on this project has eliminated most of the risk associated with such a large residential development, particularly in a regional locality.
I have immensely enjoyed working with Geena on this project. Her ambition, individuality and optimism has helped make the project a pleasure to develop. I would not hesitate to recommend Ms Geena Court for future project marketing ventures of any size.
Should one require further assistance please feel free to contact the undersigned.
Thakral Holdings Limited
We have had occasion over the past year to purchase a number of properties through Court House Realty and indeed have introduced some four to five other purchasers through this agency. The referral of additional purchasers came about as a result of the excellent service and friendly attention received from the staff of Court House Realty.
We did not purchase all our properties at once but have been back several times to purchase additional properties. It goes without saying that we feel assured that our queries would be handled with great care and attention to detail, and this has prompted us to have no hesitation in recommending the services of Court House Realty's staff to others.
