Sales, Ray White Canberra
A lifelong Canberran with a passion for footy and a dry sense of humour, Tom is known to his colleagues as quite the character. But what is it exactly that makes Tom tick?
When you hear the word "successful", who's the first person to come to mind?
"Has to be Elon Musk, the founder of Tesla & SpaceX. Here's a guy who is truly shaping the future of humanity through private enterprise - completely off the back of his own efforts. I thoroughly recommend his biography by Ashlee Vance, it's a real eye-opener."
What's your favourite Book?
"Impossible to choose just one. For self-development and inspiration, Turning Pro by Steven Pressfield is unbeatable. For a great piece of non-fiction, 7 Years in Tibet by Heinrich Harrer. For a gripping story, Stieg Larsson's The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest is one of the greats."
"Shawshank Redemption or Kung Fu Panda."
Do you have any quotes which you like to live by?
"Absolutely. Mark Twain, I think it was, who said it - “Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.”
Why is Real Estate your chosen career?
"What it really boils down to is the pleasure of meeting new people each and every day. There aren't many careers in this world where a crucial part of the day-to-day involves sitting down in someone's living room and getting to know them over a cup of tea. That, to me, is pretty special."
"The difference between a house and a home, as they say, is the people within it - every home has a story of its own. To me, real estate is about understanding that story".
All in all, Tom takes pride in his work ethic and his ability to personalise the selling experience.
"I hang my hat on being the hardest working agent around. I look every seller in the eye with great confidence, knowing that I will leave no stone unturned in getting the best result".
"Tom was extremely enthusiastic and professional and went that that little bit extra to expedite the sale of my house. Tom accommodated all requests in a very timely and collaborative manner. I would have no hesitation in recommending him."
Andrew Power - Theodore
"We found Tom to be honest and very approachable, he kept is up to date with the progress of the sale of our house. I would highly recommend Tom and now class him as a true friend."
Angelina Collier - Chisholm
"I could not recommend Tom more, he achieved a higher sale price than expected and was faultless with his communication. Please call 0434 496 119 if you have any questions"
