Why did you become a buyer’s agent?
I’ve always loved real estate, looking through properties. After purchasing my first property at 21, I have been into it ever since. It’s the perfect decision for me to become a buyer’s agent with my love of real estate and I really enjoy working with people and helping them purchase property.
What do you like most about being a buyer’s agent?
Helping people find a home they absolutely love. Its great to be able to help people through what is most likely their biggest financial investment of their lives. Its great to be able to give clients the peace of mind and help ease the stress of purchasing property.
What type of house was your first property?
It was a three-bedroom rental that my brother and I went halves in the property back when I was just 21. From there I built 2 sets of duplexes then a new home and then renovated many houses and then moved on to developments. Property has been a great investment vehicle for me and I still love it today.
You’ve been involved in many property renovations, what has been your favourite renovation job?
It was a total renovation job in Broadmeadow, a big labour of love. I completely guttered the place, knocked out walls, total landscape of the front and back yards and completely replaced the kitchen and bathroom. The bathroom ended up being my favourite part of the entire renovation with duel showerheads, it really turned out beautifully. I thought it would definitely be sold to a young professional couple, but an 84 year old male ended up purchasing the property.
Best bit about living in Newcastle?
Where to start…..
I have a great love of the beaches here in Newcastle. They are exceptional. The foreshore is beautiful, the restaurant and café scene in Newcastle is growing strong and the people here really make Newcastle such an amazing place to live.
Favourite local cafe or restaurant?
Hard one there are so many good ones. My favourite restaurant in the Hunter Valley would be Muse Dining (at Hungerford Hill, Pokolbin) and Newcastle’s Merewether Surfhouse for a drink with friends as well as The Junction’s Talulah Bar and Café and lets not forget The Junction Hotel. There are so many new cafes and bars popping up all over Newcastle which is great. The cafe and bar scene has really made progress over the last 5 years.
Where can we find you on the weekend?
I like spending time with my wife, our children and our friends. Depending on the season surfing, water skiing, standup paddle boarding, ski paddling, kite-surfing, bike riding and snow skiing are the sports that I enjoy. Listening to music is my way to relax.
