Hi...I'm Lance, a Cairns real estate agent & auctioneer.
Real estate has been in my blood since the day my dad opened his first real estate office in Brisbane's West in 1982.
In the early day’s Dad would pay me to deliver leaflets around Brookfield and help him get ready for his open homes. 30 plus years later & I'm still leaflet dropping homes for sale! (both digitally and manually!)
It wasn't until 2006, after 10 years in the hospitality industry as a qualified Chef and business owner, purchasing investment properties of my own that I truly got the real estate bug.
I started my real estate career in 2006 with the Ray White Group. I can still picture the very first property that I sold: it was a 2-bedroom townhouse with blue floor tiles in Earlville. I can also remember the excitement and pride that I felt in getting a great result for my clients. That same excitement remains today and is what drives me to be the best agent I can.
Since 2006 I have been fortunate to work with some of the industry’s best agencies, including Ray White, RE/MAX & now the Property Shop. They have each helped me to improve, refine my skills and ultimately become a better agent. I have been awarded some of the industry’s top awards including receiving membership to Ray White's Premier Club (2008 - 2011) and RE/MAX 100% Club (2012 - 2015), however my awards & achievements are secondary to achieving my client’s objectives.
In 2015 I became a licensed auctioneer and have now called over 200 auctions throughout Queensland.
A lot has changed in the industry over the past 13 years; with technology providing buyers with increasing amounts of knowledge, market insights and property history. However, one thing that hasn't changed is my focus to ensure a great result for my clients.
Professionalism, commitment, integrity and ‘character’ are personal attributes that I live by. The number of return clientele and referrals that I receive is testament to my commitment to these values and my focus on delivering the best possible outcome for my clients.
In my career to date, I have sold in excess of 500 Cairns homes, with a combined value of well over $200,000,000.
I am extremely proud to sell homes in this beautiful city & am excited about what the future holds for the Cairns property market .
In my spare time I am a:
* Loving husband to a super supportive & successful wife
* Father to 2 energetic young kids
* Lover of dad jokes (my favourite ...It sucks being a straw!)
* Rugby fanatic (please don't mention the Wallabies)
* Underwater hockey player (yes it's actually a sport)
* Mad keen fisherman
... did I mention I am a mad keen fisherman :)
If you are looking to buy or sell, or simply want to learn more about the Cairns property market, then please get in touch. I would love to help you get the very best out of the Cairns market.
Remember, before you employ an agent to sell your home, please give me a call. I would love to show you what my past clients already know; that I get results!
