I have been working in the real estate and property industry for over 40 years in many roles – as a real estate agent, Branch Manager, Business Owner, Property Developer and now as a Property Advocate.
After being recognised for being in the top 5% of the real estate industry and also being made a Fellow of the Real Estate Institute of Australia, I decided that I should utilise my skills and experience to help and assist people selling their property as a Vendor Advocate.
Given the fact that most people today are time poor, I’ve decided to use my knowledge and many years of experience to provide an honest and top quality service with the client’s best interest at heart.
I have worked in five municipalities and have a wide range knowledge of how real estate is bought, sold and developed in Melbourne.
I feel eminently suited for the role of Property Advocate, as I have a passion for property and a very strong sense of ‘doing the right thing,’ which is borne out by the fact that over 70% of my business is repeat or referred business and have a database of over 2000 happy past clients and customers.
