I have been a resident of the Western Suburbs all my life, I am married with 3 children and have spent the last 30+ years helping people to own real estate. Hard work, enthusiasm and honesty are three very important qualities to me and have made me successful throughout my life in whatever field of business I have pursued. As Principal of Ray White Grange for over a decade and having won numerous awards over the years, my experience is well known within the local area.
Over the past few years, I have been concentrating on introducing and training new sales staff into the local area. With their dedication and my years of experience in the area, we have become the leaders of Real Estate within the western suburbs. I know that selling a home is an emotional time for the owner and I believe that my job is not only to get you the highest price in the marketplace but to also be compassionate, understanding and to help you through the selling process.

Nick and Diane
The initial request for a sales appraisal was responded to within 48 hours. \ Following attendance by John and Jodie, I was offered believable pricing information on my property, backed up by comparisons for similar properties sold, followed by the expected estimated sale price and anticipated length of time on the market. Which they predicted to be very likely to be sold well within a 4 week period.\ All of which happened - My property sold above the listed price range and within 7 days of being on the market.\ What more could a person want from a reputable, experienced sales professional.
Professionalism and great communication and service
Better than good service
