Commercial Real Estate Agents in Australia industry trends (2015-2020)

poll Average industry growth 2015–2020: -0.6%


in 2016 66% of households have a pet

There are over 29 million pets in Australia and we have one of the highest pet ownership rates in the world [1]. Approximately 61% of households in Australia own pets, with dogs being the most common (40%), followed by cats (27%) [1].   update march 2020*  https://kb.rspca.org.au/knowledge-base/how-many-pets-are-there-in-australia/

What are the characteristics of Australian pet owners?

Sixty four percent of pet owners are female, and 65% of pet owners are from households with incomes of $50,000 or more [1]. Seventy percent of those aged 18-24 years old are pet owners (Gen Z), and 66% of those aged 40-54 years are pet owners (Gen X) [1]. Over three-quarters of families with children aged 6 years or older are pet owners [1].

In 2019, over 60% of dog and cat owners considered their pet as a member of the family [1]. Many pet owners have also adopted ‘pet parenting’ behaviours that resemble parent-child relationships – around two thirds of pet owners speak to their pets as though they understand what they are saying, and almost half of pet owners let their pets sleep in their bed with them [1].

The benefits of pet ownership


The top four benefits of pet ownership described by pet owners are: [1]

  1. Relational benefits (love, affection and companionship)

  2. Life being better in general

  3. Happiness, joy, pleasure and fun

  4. Improves mental health and wellbeing

Companionship is the main reason for Australians getting a pet, followed by rescuing animals, being given animals, teaching children responsibility and for relaxation [1].

How much do Australians spend on their pets?

Overall, Australian households are estimated to have spent over $13 billion on pet services and products in 2019 [1]. In 2019, 30% of households with dogs and 21% of households with cats have pet insurance. Dog owners spent the most, with an estimated average of $1627 spent per animal each year. Cat owners spend an estimated average of $962 per animal each year [1].

Figure 3. Expenditures by category of product/service in 2019 [1]. ‘Other’ includes grooming, pet insurance, boarding, competitions/memberships, training/behaviour/therapy, transport, alternative healthcare treatments, walking and anything else.

in 2018 62% of households have a pet

in 2018 , 4.8 million dogs 

59% of people who didn't have a pet wanted one 

2018 According to the Animal Medicines Australia, Australians spend an enormous $12.2 billion per year on their furry family members. The RSPCA also estimates that the average dog costs roughly $13,000 over the course of its lifetime. Interestingly, two thirds of households with dogs or cats regards their furry companions as part of the family. If this doesn’t show just how much we care about our pets, then nothing will.

An annual survey carried out by the Society of Human Resource Management’s Employee Benefits, notes that there has been an increasing rise over the last 5 years of business that allow their staff to bring their dogs to work.    https://www.shrm.org/hr-today/trends-and-forecasting/research-and-surveys/Documents/2018%20Employee%20Benefits%20Report.pdf   2018m america

Originally published asDogs in the office proven stress-busters

SACARE family owned in Adelaide. https://www.news.com.au/finance/work/bringing-your-dog-to-work-is-one-way-to-lower-stress-levels/news-story/a575ea269c7396e6f61dbffa3390fa85

SACARE's marketing communications manager Chloe Kempe said the sector was a "particularly emotional one and it was a release to have pets in the office".

There are a minimum of four dogs on any day at its Nailsworth office, and most of them go on site visits to SACARE's mental health facilities at Prospect, North Adelaide and Hope Valley.

"There are obviously studies showing pets are beneficial and we actually see that on the job," Ms Kempe said.

"We want to make sure we are a forward-thinking workplace. It's a more broadminded way of looking at work-life balance."

The business employs 13 people and the flexibility extends to other pets as well as children.

Pets in the workplace can make employees happier and increase productivity, team morale, and employee retention while decreasing stress and absence.

See what they have to say

PEOPLE make better decisions when children and dogs are in the workplace, says Fabian Dattner, partner in Dattner Grant and leadership expert.

The company mentors leaders and assists organisations in becoming more creative, intelligent and collaborative.

Dattner says simply bringing a pet or child into the workplace can play a part in that process.

"It's very easy to make very short-term decisions that are all about money without any sensitivity to the world around you," Dattner says. "When children and animals are there people are more kind, more respectful and more aware of each other."

Dattner says many people wrongly assume they would never be allowed to bring their dog to work.

'It's not that most workplaces never let people take pets, it's that most people think they can't - so which comes first, the rule or the belief?"

Exit Films began in 1995. It has always been a dog-friendly workplace. Producer John Sandow says being able to bring his labrador Madge to work was a big consideration for him joining the business: "Dogs are great socialisers, they give everyone a common focus and they're hilarious.

People who arrive at the small media office in Richmond can't help but smile when greeted by the gentle shaggy-haired pooch.

"She's a good ice-breaker. New clients come in and with Fly there, suddenly we're all best friends,"

Place says.

Fly has been tagging along with Place since she was a puppy and is well-loved by co-owner Michael Roberts and their staff.

"We deliberately set out to be a stress-free workplace.

SCAMP the shitzu is small but he is described as a great leveller.

"We have a lot of senior and sometimes difficult clients and he's able to break down barriers and build relationships," says his owner Laura Chisholm, a strategy consultant.

From greeting clients to sitting in on meetings, Scamp is an essential part of the team - his focus is just a little different.

"Scamp is impartial, he doesn't care about office politics, what projects we have on or the stress levels," she says.

Chisholm bought Scamp two years ago. Taking him to work was always part of the deal.

"It changes the way you feel about the workplaces - makes it more human," she says.

cotton on - started bringing pets in 2011 

IT all started two years ago when Cotton On head office held a "bring your dog to work" week.

It was such a success, it became a regular practice.

The company also has two "bring your kids to work" days every year.

Senior communications manager Greer McCracken says dogs contribute to a more friendly, open workplace environment, which is intrinsic to the company's values.

"Animals are a great social catalyst in encouraging collaboration, mitigating stress, creating a strong sense of community and increasing job satisfaction," she says.

Finished artist Kirby Squillari takes her sister's labrador Travis to work every Tuesday.

"It makes the workplace more carefree," she says.


MAN'S best friend could be his best workmate too - at least that's the belief of one SA company that allows its employees to bring their dogs to the office.

The South Australian family-owned business says opening its doors to staff's dogs has helped their owners deal with the stress of working in the disability services area.

SACARE's marketing communications manager Chloe Kempe said the sector was a "particularly emotional one and it was a release to have pets in the office".

SACARE owns supported accommodation for people with mental illness or high and complex needs resulting from degenerative illnesses, acquired brain injury or physical disability.

Office regulars include Ms Kempe's dalmatians Dudley and Archie, and boston terrier Phoebe.

The four-legged companions have an outdoor area to exercise and otherwise spend time closer to their owner instead of home alone.

June 21 is international Take Your Dog to Work Day, when employers are asked to open their businesses to pets to promote the benefits of pet ownership and encourage animal adoption.

The RSPCA estimates more than 60 per cent of Australian households own a pet but less than 25 per cent of employers allow pets into the workplace.

SACARE may be one of the few SA employers to have pet-friendly workplaces, but it is one of many national and international companies to do so.

Google is one of the global companies that allow dogs in workplaces, along with Amazon, Dell, Nokia and Procter & Gamble's Pet Care division.

Nationally, among the well-known pooch-friendly places is Mars Petcare and clothing retail chain Cotton On.

Survey reveals many would take a pay cut to work with pets

June 19, 2019 vet practice      https://vetpracticemag.com.au/survey-reveals-many-would-take-a-pay-cut-to-work-with-pets/

A national survey has found that almost a third of Australians would take a pay cut to work in a pet-friendly environment, highlighting the depth of our love for our animals.

Conducted by pet sitting platform PetCloud, the survey also found that age played a major role in the desire to work with pets, with millennials the most eager.

More than half of respondents aged 18-24 and nearly half aged 25-34 said they would take a pay cut to be able to work alongside their animals. 


“We are living in tight economic times with everything from petrol to power and rent to rates on the rise, so when eight million Australians say they are willing to take a pay cut for the privilege of working alongside their pets, employers should take note,” PetCloud founder and CEO Deb Morrison said.

“Having a dog nearby is a great reminder to take a break and go for a walk or to step away from the task at hand to enjoy a pat and some playtime—all of which can help prevent stress, overworking and burnout.” 

 “We’d love to see more Australian businesses encourage office pets. As long as the right measures are in place, having an office dog can benefit employees and their furry friends,” added Alex Hyndman Hill from RSPCA Queensland.

“It can also prove to be the deciding factor for someone wanting to adopt a dog from the thousands of pups without homes, as it relieves the stress of leaving an animal alone all day.”

This Friday (June 21) is ‘Take Your Dog to Work Day’ when employers all over the world open their businesses to pets to promote the benefits of pet ownership and in turn, encourage animal adoption.

Traditionally, a sales pitch is defined as “a talk or a way of talking that is intended to persuade you to buy something.” But here’s the thing. People don’t like to be sold to — our brains are actually wired to resist sales messages.

We argue that a sales pitch shouldn’t be about persuading a prospect to buy: instead, use a sales pitch to persuade the prospect to take the next step in the sales process.

What is a sales pitch?

A sales pitch is a message or script designed to lead your audience to a certain action, such as an appointment or demo. It can be formal or informal, verbal or written down. A sales pitch sets the tone for the entire customer relationship.

A good sales pitch is concise and provides value to the recipient. Use it to begin a conversation, not to sell to the prospect.

The term encompasses many different types of pitches:

  • One-line sales pitch

  • Elevator pitch

  • Phone sales pitch

  • Email sales pitch

  • Social media pitch

  • Presentation sales pitch

  • Follow-up sales pitch

You can use a combination of sales pitches on the same prospect. For example, you might give an elevator pitch at a conference and send an email pitch to a prospect before finally giving a comprehensive presentation pitch.

A typical sales pitch framework

Whatever the situation, the following framework can work for any pitch:

  • Problem. Lead with the problem that your audience is struggling with like Zuora’s sales deck. Back up your claims with data and statistics such as “Insurtech has risen 45% over the past five years, impacting how smaller insurance agencies do business.”

  • Solution. Detail what needs to happen to overcome the above challenge.

  • Value Proposition. What can your product or service offer the prospect? Share benefits not features.

  • Facts & Data. Include social proof and actual numbers of how your product or service has helped similar businesses.

  • Engaging Question/CTA. Encourage a conversation by asking a question. Also, move the audience to the next step with a clear Call to Action such as “Let me know if you’re interested and we can get on the phone this week.”
