Established in 1977, Peard Real Estate is a West Australian owned and operated real estate group offering a comprehensive real-estate service through an array of related companies that employ more than 300 people. Last year Peard opened a new element of their company, called Peard Financial Planning, which operates as an additional service to compliment the company’s existing real estate products.
With a goal of providing customers with a complete real estate service, Peard Financial Planning was in many ways the final piece to the group’s business puzzle. Prior to the establishment of Peard Financial planning the group were faced with the challenge of maintain an ongoing relationship with customers following the completion of their real estate transactions. As a result of Peard Financial Planning the company can now continue to service clients into the future by providing financial planning solutions for customers that aren’t necessarily actively participating in the real estate market. This provides the Peard group with an ongoing customer relationship that aims to make re-entering the real-estate market seamless.
If and when the owner was ready to sell, the group is positioned to utilise this relationship to provide real estate specific services in a continually re-occurring property life-cycle process. This helps to provide Peard with full control of the total real estate transaction, ensuring a timely service from start to finish. From a client’s perspective, dealing with just one company, as opposed to several, helps to make for an easier transaction with less confusion. Additionally, by offering a complete service over the long-term Peard are able to foster brand loyalty, benefitting from referrals by long-time customers who have utilised Peard’s diverse service platform.
Peard have been recognised with a Business Excellence Award in the Australian Business Awards 2016.
The Australian Business Awards are the regional chapter of an integrated, hierarchical leadership program conducted on a national and international level. Eligible organisations from each region are invited to participate in the international chapter of the program at The World Business Awards. Conducted annually and currently in the second year of its international launch, The World Business Awards seeks to engage with the world’s business, innovation and technology leaders through a global recognition and knowledge building initiative that is underpinned by the program’s established framework. The program engages with organisations worldwide to benchmark the full spectrum of their products, services and initiatives and to review their business performance. The cycle culminates in the recognition and celebration of organisations that implement world-class business initiatives and industry leading products and services on a prominent and far-reaching scale. All entries must be entered in the regional chapter where the organisation is based.
Organisational participation includes private companies, publicly listed companies, multinational subsidiaries, not-for-profit organisations, non-government organisations, educational institutions, franchise systems, partnerships, government departments, government agencies, local government and statutory bodies operating in Australia.
Initiatives can include but are not limited to projects, programs, processes, systems, technologies, developments, ventures and undertakings.
Entries are assessed utilising a robust and dynamic framework to ensure that the assessment process is pertinent and objective. The World Business Awards Framework (WBA Framework) is utilised as a structured model of assessment that enables the participating organisations to be benchmarked against world class performance standards. The Framework consists of specialised assessment modules pertaining to the evaluation criteria for each of the award categories. The criteria and sub-criteria provide a robust set of requirements that are used as the methodology for benchmarking and learning among the participating organisations.
Organisations that participate are provided with the unique opportunity to benchmark themselves against the top performers globally. The recipients are acknowledged for their achievements and recognised as the elite of their industry earning a place amongst a distinguished group by having their products, projects, initiatives, contributions and achievements recognised on a prominent and far-reaching scale. The program provides the ultimate platform for building knowledge, increasing brand awareness, equity, loyalty and retention through increased exposure, recognition and prestige. This establishes a valuable resource that can be used extensively to create opportunities for publicity, positive organisational profiling and heightened brand awareness within the respective industries both nationally and internationally.
