Australian commission-free real estate model buyMyPlace has appointed Linda Dillon as its Head of Acquisitions and Integration to spearhead its partnership strategy.
The company, which recently announced the sale of 4000 properties valuing $2.1 billion, plans to move forward with its planned acquisition growth strategy and has appointed Dillon to help lead it in this direction.
With more than 15 years’ experience in CFO roles for ASX-listed companies and global entities Dillon has considerable experience in the financial sector and has, over the last eight years, supported a range of capital raising and refinancing phases.
Dillon has a Bachelor of Commerce from the University of Melbourne and is a Fellow of Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand, a Fellow of Finsia and a Fellow of the Governance Instituteof Australia.
BuyMyplace CEO Paul Heath welcomed Dillon’s appointment.
“We are delighted to welcome Linda to the company, and her skills will provide a significant contribution to achieving our objectives in our next growth phase,” he said.
Heath says part of these objectives are to continue to fulfill customer demands.
“We are investigating a number of interesting acquisitions and partnerships which, if they transpire,
will see buyMyplace continuing to offer products and services over and above what our
competitors offer,” he said. “Our philosophy is to continue finding ways to ensure our customers achieve
the best price for their property by offering customers new ways to sell property, while saving
large commissions and fees.”
Heath also commented on the company’s recent key achievement.
“Reaching 4,000 properties sold with a value of around $2.1 billion is a milestone for buyMyplace,” he said.
“Not only is our established DIY business performing well, but we have also had an encouraging
uptake of our Full Service offering, launched in February. Full service considerably expands our
addressable market by charging a fixed fee of only $2995 and a remaining $1600, once sold. We
have achieved 100% auction clearance rate to date with Full Service, which continues to attract
interested vendors, and we are on track to expand into other states in coming months,” says
BuyMyPlace was established as an online real estate company enabling Australians to sell their homes without paying fees and commissions to real estate agents.
