I have lived in Sunraysia all my life and I really can't imagine wanting to live anywhere else. Raised on a horticultural property, I learned all the aspects of running a fruit block and this hands on experience has helped give me the Rural aspect of Real Estate and hence elected as Chair of the Rural & Regional Chapter for First National Real Estate in 2014. My passions in life are my wife Carolyn, children Danella, Brittney and Shaun and my sport. I was a premiership player with Red Cliffs Football Club in 1983, coached football, cricket and basketball at both senior and junior levels and life member of the Mildura Junior Football Club. I am also a very keen fisherman. Like many real estate agents, I didn't start in the real estate industry. The first 12 years of my career were spent as a qualified Carpenter & Joiner. This experience plus my local knowledge, opened the path to my career in real estate which began in 1993. My goal is to provide my clients with the highest quality service, strive to get the best result possible and to make their real estate experience a pleasant and memorable one. I have sold over 200 millions of dollars worth of property and have been awarded several National and State achiever awards. As a Director of the company I am directly responsible for real estate sales, manager of the Rural division and senior sales manager. I'm proud to be a long standing member of the National Award winning First National Collie & Tierney Real Estate team.
