About Rob

A salesperson

Starting at Raine and Horne Carina (Brisbane) in 1991 as a commission-only salesperson, I’ve spent most of my property career selling and negotiating. That’s what I love and what I do best.

An agency owner

Life as a principal can be lonely at times. I was a residential agency owner for 27 years, so I’ve walked in your shoes. I had cranky landlords and PM’s who wouldn’t return emails. I had salespeople who wouldn’t pick up the phone… and then complain they had no listings – argggh! I understand your daily challenges!

A buyer and seller of rent rolls

I’ve bought 8 rent rolls, ranging from 30 to 300 managements, and have sold twice (300 in 2003 and 600 in 2023). I’ve personally experienced the worry, the stress, the headaches – finding extra staff, wobbly clients, premises, bankers, software, trust accounts, deadlines – all of it!

That makes me unique in rent roll broking and agency sales.

A rent roll owner

Property management has always been important to me and I know its true value to your business. I’ve lived in Townsville in the 1990’s where we had a rent roll of 1000+ properties and a busy team. And during my career in Brisbane I’ve owned and run agencies in Toowong and South Brisbane (300 and 600 properties). I’ve experienced first-hand everything you face running your rent roll.

The former Chairman of the REIQ

I was fortunate to serve 9 years as a Director of the Real Estate Institute of Queensland and its Chairman. I loved helping its members, meeting them in every corner of our state and working hard to improve their businesses, careers and our profession.

A trusted real estate professional

In 2019 the REIQ awarded me Life Membership and I’m now a part-time contract trainer, delivering their registration and licensing classes. I’m known as an agent who does what he says he’ll do. I’ve got a reputation for integrity.

A well-connected broker

I’ve met and stayed in touch with a lot of agents across Queensland, along with many of the suppliers and advisers to our industry. I know where to find your rent roll or agency’s buyer. And I can work closely with the people who influence their decisions.

A successful salesperson and agent

Over my career I personally sold more than 1000 properties. In 2019 my business was awarded the REIQ’s Agency of the Year (medium). I know how to get results – and will work hard to do that for you.

Customer service (and family business) is in my DNA

My Great-Grandma Esther established a tiny grocery store in Ayr, North Queensland in 1913 with a clear mission statement: “Honeycombes for service”. My father later expanded the business to real estate and, when my brother and I joined him in the 1990’s, we were the fourth generation to build on that commitment to customers. 

In my work as a rent roll broker today, more than 110 years later, great service is still my simple priority.

I’d love to chat confidentially about how I can help. Please give me a call on 0423 332 022.
