Q & A with Shane Manikam

Why did you choose RE/MAX?

RE/MAX has one concept that not many agencies out there have: the concept of owning your own business. When you own your own business you treat it differently from when you’re just an agent working for a company. RE/MAX offers an agent an opportunity to run your own business – that’s why I’m working for RE/MAX.

What do you love about your area?

I work on the Berea – our areas of focus extend right up to the Umbilo area, a little bit of Sherwood, Glenwood, Musgrave, Morningside – so we’ve got quite a large area we can cover, which obviously gives us an edge compared to other agencies out there. One of the reasons why we chose the Berea area is family: my wife and my daughters and I love being outdoors: taking a walk on the promenade, going to the beach, spending time at the Botanical Gardens. Berea lets us take advantage of these places.

What’s the most important thing to remember in this industry?

Reliability, integrity and area knowledge are the most important qualities in this game. Sellers always want feedback, so it’s important to keep them updated. It’s little things like that that make a really good agent.

What do you love about your job?

Buying a house is the biggest transaction that any family can make – when you become part of that transaction, it’s such a good feeling. Being part of that timeframe of a client’s life is a special thing.
