How long have you been in Real Estate?
What aspect of Real Estate are you an expert in, or what aspect are you most proud of that you do?
I am an Auctioneer, Property Consultant, Eastern suburbs and Development Specialist. I love assisting my clients with the sale of their home (which they may have held for the last 50 years) through to conducting due diligence on plans for large scale developments and everything in between.
What is the strangest/nicest/most interesting thing you have had to deal with, in your Real Estate career?
I once called an auction for a fellow team member and had a massively successful result. After the auction I walked into the bedroom to congratulate the vendors (whom I was meeting for the first time). I instantly realised that one of the vendors was my music teacher from high school. He encouraged my friends and I to form a band and we performed at Festival Hall! This vendor, all those years ago was the one, who stirred my love of performing and therefore becoming an Auctioneer.
What is the most interesting non-Real Estate job you have ever had, and what about that job has helped you most in your current Real Estate role?
After high school, I decided to study Marine Biology. While on a salmon fishing boat in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, I suddenly realised that I get wild sea sickness and probably needed to pursue another career that is more land-based. Real Estate seemed like a natural choice.
What is the one piece of advice you would give a new Landlord/Vendor/Tenant/Client?
I always focus on time-frame first, before talking about price or strategy. I find that time-frame, is the most relevant and significant factor to a vendors’ personal circumstance.
