Widely regarded as one of Melbourne’s most experienced and knowledgeable real estate professionals, Paul’s career has provided him with a profound understanding of all aspects of the property industry. He has personally experienced the growth of both metropolitan Melbourne and the regions – from his early days as a cadet agent through the boom and bust of the 1980s, into the prosperous 90s, the challenges of the GFC and now, a more steady and sustainable market era. Across his 40-year career, Paul has been a director and head auctioneer of his own highly successful agencies, carefully mentoring young colleagues and graduates and instilling in them the same commitment to professionalism, integrity and achievement that he has always demanded of himself. His skills in property marketing, coupled with his talent for identifying the key selling points of a home and astutely identifying the ideal target market for each listing, has earned him enormous respect from the industry and the gratitude of appreciative clients and purchasers. Paul’s love of the beach and the relaxed coastal lifestyle that the southern Mornington Peninsula affords, saw him purchase in Shoreham in 1983, and then move to Flinders 10 years ago as a permanent resident and a champion of its natural beauty, community spirit and gourmet food and wine.
