What are your top three secrets to success?
1. Persistence beats resistance.
2. Always give your best.
3. Don’t be scared to make mistakes.
What is the one thing you wish someone had told you when you first started out in property and why?
I think every agent should experience selling their own home and moving first so they can understand just how stressful the whole process is for the client. You will also get a better understanding of the process and how the legalities unfold.
What is the most vital business tool that estate agents should have at their disposal in today’s market and why?
An iPad as it has all the information at your fingertips. One can access market related comparables, other agents’ stock and even your suburb database if you have compiled your own one.
Do you remember the first property you sold? Tell us about it.
Yes, it was an apartment in London. It was in an old mansion block, two bedrooms with one bathroom, and it sold for more than a house would sell here in a top area. I couldn’t believe I had done it.
What advice would you give to new kids on the block about making a success of their career in property?
The simple and honest truth is, knock on doors, every day.
