How long have you been in the industry? 

I have been in the real estate industry for over 10 years.  I firstly began my career in Western Sydney where I was a residential agent for a number of years before moving to BB Retail Capital (BBRC) and specialised in retail leasing. For the past six years, I have worked in commercial, retail and industrial

What’s happening in the area you specialise in?

The south-west is arguably Sydney’s fastest growing region with a growing number of new developments in the pipeline, coupled with land rezoning and the recent announcement of the Badgerys Creek Airport, the region is thriving with residential and industrial development.

Describe the most interesting property you have sold

I believe every property is interesting and has its own merit, although one that stands out would most likely be a deal that was negotiated over a term of 12 months. This included a number of issues in rezoning, council objections and even a court battle so all in all, I learnt a great deal and this was a very interesting transaction.

What are the ingredients to being successful in your job?

I believe success is not about how much money you make but what impression you leave on your client. Without a doubt, attitude would have to be the most important ingredient to being successful in your job as an agent. Even if the world is falling apart around you, remember to stay positive.

What aspects of your role do you enjoy the most?

I thrive on being in an auction environment; there is nothing better than being amongst a fast paced, exciting auction.

Where would you invest a spare $750,000?

At the moment I would say industrial as demand will only continue to increase and its capital growth is higher than residential.

Which football team do you support?

"The family club" - Canterbury Bulldogs.

What’s your favourite app or techno gadget?

Most people might find this fairly boring, although I would need to say my mortgage calculator. It calculates stamp duty and loan repayments within seconds and is super easy to use.

How do you use social media?

I’m a huge fan of LinkedIn. By actively using it over the years, it has helped lift my personal profile in the property sector and also meet and network with property professionals Australia wide.
