My path to Luxury Real Estate has been strange to say the least. I never once thought of being a real estate agent or broker during my childhood and in fact had rarely met anyone involved in real estate.
The very first job I thought I wanted to do was be a Judge. I was about 5 years old and I have no idea where that idea was born as neither my parents nor family members were Judges. I thought it would be fun to lock criminals away and obviously this was a young and naïve thought process because I didn’t understand that you would first need to become a Solicitor/Attorney or Barrister and work your way through the ranks.
When I realized this the novelty quickly wore off because I just wanted to wear the robes, wig and have the hammer that the Judge banged on the Bench.
The second thing I remember wanting to do was be a Doctor – an orthopedic surgeon actually and that was the case from about the age of 11. I played rugby league and liked the idea of working with sporting teams. I worked hard at school and was accepted into Medical School at the University of Newcastle where I successfully completed 2 years of study.
What I thought was going to be one year off to earn some money and release the pressure of full time study turned into a life changing career decision, but the story was only just beginning with still just over 5 years to go until I would finally make my way to real estate.
