CENTURY 21 Carkeet Johns Smith
157 Pacific Highway Charlestown NSW 2290 Australia

Introduction / Background

Shane joined Century 21 Carkeet Johns Smith in 2002 as a trainee sales consultant. As a fourth generation Real Estate practitioner there was a fair chance that he would succeed and within months it was clear that real estate was the right career path. Shane's background prior to real estate includes an involvement in the management side of an international franchise group.

One of Shane's greatest thrills in the real estate realm is hearing the joy of a seller when they achieve or exceed the result that they are hoping for during the selling process.

Shane also loves working with property investors with the management of their investment properties. Great communication, rent arrears, regular periodic inspections, low vacancy rates and thorough tenant selection are Shane's focus.

Shane has lived in the Newcastle and Lake Macquarie region all his life and his knowledge as a local resident allows him to promote the genuine benefits of living here to potential buyers and communicate with them on a personal level.


Shane holds a Bachelor of Commerce (University of Newcastle) and Diploma of Management.


Shane has received a number of awards within the highly acclaimed Century 21 system including admission to the Emerald Masters Club and three times to the Centurion Club (top 2% of sales people within the Century 21 system). Shane is a consistent award winner for quarter sales performance.

Community Involvement / Personal Interests

Shane is involved in New Lambton Football Club where he is a playing member along with two of his children.

On a personal note Shane is happily married to Megan and has four children named Hamish, Bayden, Gabi and Lachlan. When not at the office, Shane and his family enjoy following their interests in camping, soccer, fishing and spending quality time with friends.
