27 October 2021 – McGrath Rouse Hill today announced a strategic move as it joins forces with respected award-winning real estate professional, Ruma Mundi. After building a stellar career specialising in Sydney’s north-western region, Ms Mundi brings more than 19 years of success and experience to the role of partner at McGrath Rouse Hill/Stanhope Gardens.

 

McGrath West Principal Kon Stathopoulos will team up with Ms Mundi in leading the 22-strong Rouse Hill/Stanhope Gardens team. Mr Stathopoulos is delighted with the merge.

 

“This is a strategic alliance for our business,” said Mr Stathopoulos. “Ruma will be an exemplary fit for McGrath. On a personal level, Ruma displays the same ethics, values and views that are part of the fabric of McGrath. As an agent, she’s one of the leading female agents in the state, if not the country.”

 

Ms Mundi sees the merge as a win for her clients and as well as her team. “This alignment allows us to give even better service to our clients,” she said. “Fifty per cent of our buyer pool is selling in the Parramatta-Blacktown area to upsize to our north-west region. So, this new connection with McGrath West makes sense from both a client and a business perspective. We’ll be able to service our clients right through their journey.”

 

“We’re finding most upgraders and downsizers move within five to eight kilometres of their home,” she added. “They used to move towards the city but since COVID, they are preferring to stay local.”   

 

A committed proponent of industry training and development, Ms Mundi has been on both sides of the coaching and mentoring equation. “I started my real estate career attending a training session with John McGrath at the Hilton Hotel,” she recalls. “I thought, ‘If I can one day be a McGrath agent, I know I’ll have made it.’”

 

Invited to speak at AREC in 2019 and ranked with Australia’s top real estate agents [including REB’s Top 100 Agents], Ms Mundi believes in the benefits of mentoring, in advancing her team to their greatest potential.

 

Along with ongoing training and mentoring, Mr Stathopoulos said McGrath supports its team with the best technology to increase productivity while allowing agents a better work-life balance. “COVID has highlighted now more than ever the importance of looking after your family as well as your clients,” he said.

 

Ms Mundi, a mother to two active, young daughters, knows the importance of balancing family life. “McGrath’s systems and supports mean I can have more time with my family while giving my clients and their properties the time and attention they deserve,” she explains.

 

“Ruma is known for her dedication to her clients with over 80 per cent of her business being repeat clientele,” said Mr Stathopoulos. “With McGrath’s systems behind her, and our aligned values of client care, Ruma will continue to flourish.”

 

In the past year, Ms Mundi has transacted more than 122 sales averaging $1,185,000 each. A highpoint was her sale of 42 Winchcombe Place in Castle Hill, a six-bedroom home on 2000 square metres which sold in August for $2.82 million. Her listings average 21 days on market.

 

“She is joining a group of top-quality sales agents where 45 per cent are super-talented female agents,” said Mr Stathopoulos. Ms Mundi was named in REB’s Top 50 Women in Real Estate ranking along with nine McGrath agents announced in June 2021.

 

“I’ve surrounded myself with the right people and now that we’re joining hands with McGrath, my team is all in,” said Ms Mundi. “We have the right people for the right brand.” In addition to her sales team of five, the rent roll with 400 properties under management will merge with McGrath West.
