Another milestone to celebrate across the Adenbrook Homes network is the first anniversary of the Brisbane North franchise, owned by Brendan Wekeem. Just over 12 months ago, Brendan joined Adenbrook Homes because of the reputation in the marketplace and their ability to help him grow his building business. Not traditionally a builder, instead Brendan has spent many years in sales and sales management roles, assisting and supporting people through their new home journey to handover and beyond.
With an eye for detail and extensive industry experience, Brendan is equipped to provide great insight to home buyers and has even run seminars to educate and teach people how to benefit from the build process in an investment context. His thorough understanding of behind the scenes coupled with his construction knowledge ensures clients that work with the Brisbane North team have access to an excellent source of knowledge that covers all aspects of the process.
Brendan launched his business and in no time at all, quickly started construction and will close out the financial year with a swag of happy clients that have moved into their Adenbrook Home in the suburban regions of north Brisbane. It hasn’t all been smooth sailing though with Brendan commencing operations right before Covid-19 hit our shores. It was a period of uncertainty, not knowing what implications the virus would have on a brand new building business. Fortunately for Brendan and many others in the building trade, the Federal Government introduced the HomeBuilder Scheme which has effectively ensured that the construction industry has not only survived but has actually ramped up. The market certainly felt a sudden pause across March and April of 2020, however by June confidence was back and it was back to business as usual (with social distancing rules, making it somewhat unusual). Brendan forged ahead with his business plan and has continued to recruit sales and support staff to manage the growing demand for the Adenbrook Homes experience in Brisbane North.
As such, the Brisbane North business continues to grow from strength to strength and Brendan relishes the opportunity to work alongside other franchise owners across the group and tap into their knowledge and experience, some spanning up to 12 years within the brand. It is this wealth of knowledge at Brendan’s fingertips that have made it easier to navigate challenging times and to come up with creative solutions for any challenges. Excitement now grows for Brendan and his team as plans for a display home in Stockland Newport display village unfold. We can’t say too much yet, but the home on display in the coastal suburb just north of the Redcliffe Peninsula and around 29 kilometres north of Brisbane City, will be impressive, suit the surrounding landscape and will introduce new product to the Adenbrook Homes design collection.
Congratulations to Brendan and his team for their success and achieving their milestone of their first anniversary in what seemed like the most disruptive year on record for business in Australia. Stay tuned for updates on the Stockland Newport display and we look forward to seeing even more success in the second year of business for Brisbane North.
