Leading online selling platform, Openn Negotiation has appointed Will Ainsworth, former Principal of McGrath Geelong, to be Head of Growth & Training for Australia and New Zealand.
Will was the top selling agent for the McGrath network in Victoria for the last three years, maintaining an impressive record of over 90% clearance rate and selling more than 100 properties a year.
In July 2019, Will began using the Openn Negotiation platform to attract more bidders at auctions and to assist with clearing stale listings. He quickly noticed the profound potential the online selling process offered for future listings.
In the following two months, he doubled the number of bidders and halved his days on market. Will has now listed over 70 properties, sold more than $34M in real estate and drastically improved the outcome for his clients using Openn.
“We were suddenly working with more buyers and vendors than ever before. Through Openn’s accessibility and ease of use, our team were selling homes in shorter periods and at great prices,” Ainsworth said.
Will felt Openn Negotiation’s transparent sales method aligned with his open and collaborative approach to working with people. Beyond the results, Openn also gave Will the opportunity to offer a genuine point of difference in his market place.
“With Openn Negotiation, there was no hiding, no sugar-coating. I worked with clients side-by-side and everything I said was reflected in the Openn Platform. This made it easier for them to trust me, as well.”
Having experienced these benefits first-hand, Will has decided to leave behind his flourishing career as an agent and Principal to take on a challenge at Openn Negotiation.
“My own business was revolutionised because of Openn. Moving into a role where I can pass this experience on so other agents and our industry can move forward and thrive is incredibly exciting.”
Peter Gibbons, Managing Director and Co-Founder of Openn Negotiation, is thrilled with Will joining the team.
“It’s exceptional to have an agent of Will’s calibre joining our ranks. He’s one of the most respected agents in Australia and we look forward to seeing the results from his focus on growth and training,” Gibbons said.
Starting on 15th June as the Head of Growth & Training AUS/NZ, Ainsworth will be at the forefront of supporting fellow agents.
“Openn Negotiation is well-positioned to succeed in the current market. It’s showing a significant growth trajectory and I’m excited to continue that both interstate and further abroad,” Ainsworth said.
