Q. What do you like most about your job?
I like the fact that there is an amount of flexibility in terms of hours and being able to work from a home office. I also appreciate the fact that I am not ‘office bound’ but able to travel around Sydney and meet our clients.
Q. What changes have you seen in your profession over the past few years?
The profession has grown with new laws and regulations, and we have had to adapt our valuation processes accordingly. Also the clients have higher expectations on valuation turnaround times, which has influenced the way we work to accommodate these.
Q. How would your friends describe you?
My friends would describe me as loyal, friendly, caring and passionate about what I do, and as someone who likes to have a laugh.
Q. What do you like doing in your spare time?
I enjoy holidays with my wife as well as fishing, playing golf and camping.
Q. What is your most memorable valuation job?
When I first started my career, my employer asked for my opinion on a pre-auction valuation on a Kirribilli unit overlooking the harbour. My valuation figure ended up being only $5000 under the auctioned sales price. I was proud that my valuation figure so accurately represented current market value.
