Principal - Sales - Property Management
Selling a property may not be rocket science, but it is a big deal. If you decide to put your home on the market I’m working hard to be the agent you entrust to negotiate the sale of your most valuable asset. I feel you should know about anyone you trust with such a great responsibility.
A strong passion for real estate is what initially lured me to the industry in 2001. The four years before I spent many weekends going to open inspections as a hobby! I know, Crazy! I bring with me the expertise and experience of a career spanning 27 years in sales and marketing of a number of products and services, and as a graduate of the Adelaide University School of Marketing, I further developed and specialised my skills in advertising, marketing & negotiation through expert training with Chandler & McLeod in Melbourne. Since entering the Real Estate Industry I’ve sold hundreds of properties throughout Adelaide, and especially in the North and North Eastern suburbs, and very importantly, I have a great following of happy past customers.
I combine my extensive skills and sincere and professional presentation with complete commitment and dedication to my clients. I have achieved outstanding results for my customers consistently. Three of the homes I sold in 2009 were featured in The Advertiser’s Guide to the highest prices achieved for homes sold in Adelaide suburbs (Highbury, Dernancourt and Andrews Farm), and until very recently I held the record price for a sale in Oakden as well. My achievements have been recognised with numerous awards at regional and state levels, culminating in the honour of Century 21 Masters Club recognition awarded in 2005, and Ruby level Masters Club recognition in 2006 and Emerald level in 2008. In 2009 “Sold”, a national magazine for real estate professionals featured me in a profile article.
Awards are one thing, but I measure my true success by achieving the best possible results for my clients whatever their real Estate goals are. I will never compromise my integrity by putting anyone’s interests, even my own, before those who invite me to represent them. I take great pride in the service I provide, and it is my goal that you will be completely satisfied to the extent you’ll recommend my services to your friends and family if they ever need a Real Estate Professional. Being continually referred to past client friends and their family members is the greatest accolade I could receive. I can proudly say that throughout my career I have managed to build a strong and credible reputation, with a commitment to achieving superior service and fantastic results that bring lots of referral business from satisfied customers, it truly is the best measure of performance going around!
On a personal level, I have lived in the North East for 30 years and I am a father of six children, all raised and educated locally, and now two beautiful grand children! My wife Luise is a great support to me in this demanding industry. It's always exciting to take on the sale of a new property, and once again I thank you for this opportunity to meet with you before you make a very important choice. I look forward to helping you achieve the best possible result should you choose to sell.
