Engel & Völkers Bryanston
Why did you decide to pursue a career in property?
I am fascinated with architecture and interiors and the real estate industry is the perfect opportunity for me to make a career out of something I am passionate about.
What do you find to be the most enjoyable and the most challenging aspects of the job?
Most enjoyable has to be seeing different homes. Challenging, on the other hand, is seeing the home through the eyes of a buyer. You need to put yourself in their shoes and experience their emotional needs together with the structure and layout of the property to find the perfect home.
What characteristics, in your opinion, make for a great estate agent/broker and why?
To be able to see the best aspects of a property and to project this to a buyer.
What are some of your career goals?
To always be top of mind and have the largest market share in my area.
