In life there is always a solution, a way forward, and with the right tools, the right person with the right focus - goals can always be achieved.

Let’s face it – when it comes to Real Estate you want to work with a person who has a thorough working knowledge of the area and someone who treats you as “the most important person in the equation” whether it be selling or purchasing. Your salesperson should have the get up and go to make it happen for you based on all available information and the confidence and experience to look at different opportunities. Real Estate has been my chosen profession for over sixteen years now and it’s the best career choice I’ve made. I am committed to this business, and this business is about making a potentially bumpy and stressful ride as hassle-free for my clients as possible.

I owe my successful sales career to what some might consider an unconventional upbringing. I grew up in the service and sales industry in the UK, then spent my early teens traveling around and residing in numerous countries within Europe, finally settling in the Spanish Province of Andalucia.

My experiences in investing and new home builds has lead me to the real estate industry, which, over the past few years, I have established a sound reputation of being honest and working with integrity. Being a people person, I build and maintain strong working relationships with each and every client. It gives me great pleasure to negotiate a fair deal and a successful sale.

Jason Penny
Local Proppy Expert, Hamilton

After eight years in the industry, it's important for me to keep asking if the world still needs real estate agents. In 2019, the answer is still yes. But things have changed. A lot. Proppy is the way of the future and I'm excited to be part of the team and to improve the way my clients buy and sell real estate. I've learned over the years that there are three key questions in selecting your agent;

1. How well will they present my property to the world?

2. Can they show a good track record of negotiating skills for their last 20 sales?

3. Can they justify their fees?

I'm confident in answering these questions because I love efficiency. My goal is to work smarter to save you money. Over the past few years I've quietly saved my clients hundreds of $1000's in fees, compared to traditional fees, while still getting great results. I enjoy a happy life in Fairfield with my beautiful wife and three awesome kids. Call me to find out how to get the job done better, for less, by someone who's bothered to look behind the green curtain.
