A business owner for over a decade, a Victorian Top 100 Agent on multiple occasions and an REIV industry award winning senior auctioneer - the accolades speak for themselves - but to Tom, these are just the fruits of a labour achieved by engaging with each and every client in a meaningful way to create an approach that delivers them desired outcomes consistently. Refined over his 18 year career in real estate, he knows what works and understands that every campaign has a different scenario - but you're in good hands, as he has seen them all. Exactly who you want when looking to maximise the value of your largest asset.

A local, a trusted area advisor, a skilled negotiator and a warm engaging personality allows Tom to easily build trust with every buyer that walks through your home.

At the backbone of his business model, is honesty and transparency; and it certainly comes as no surprise that the majority of Tom's clients are repeat customers and recommendations from previous satisfied buyers and sellers.

A specific business focus requires a team acutely structured to achieve those same goals - to bring more buyers to your home. Working alongside Tom on all campaigns, Trent takes an approach that benefits not only his own clients, but sellers across the Jellis Craig network. In fact, there is a strong chance that between Tom and Trent, they already know the buyer for your home. Managing over 100 "active" buyer relationships at any one time, the trust and rapport Trent has with those who want to buy your home is unparalleled.

Studies in Business Management coupled with in excess of 6 years industry experience leave you in extremely capable hands with Trent overseeing your campaign and handling the ongoing relationships with your buyers.

Offering time and patience for the team with an attentive sense of detail and organisation, Leila understands the top to toe of what makes your campaign click. Where Leila stands out is her process driven nature; every campaign on Leila's watch gets a daily review to ensure nothing is missed and all items on the checklist are ticked off.

Together, they make up the team that will represent you to the market leading standard you see across the North East's finest campaigns.
