Tom thrives on hard work. He has been known to work 60-70 hour weeks and somehow maintains an easy-going, well-mannered personality that people seem to be drawn to. And that’s what Tom likes.

He was nominated the Ray White Rising Star for Victoria & Tasmania in 2012 and earnt a place as a Ray White Premier Member in 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 & 2017; an award recognizing a high level of sales success within the group. A fully licensed estate agent, he is also one of the areas most active auctioneers. This makes him one of the few agents that have the ability to seamlessly manage the entire sales process from start to finish. He is proud of the Ray White philosophy – real estate is about the people, not the property; building relationships is the key. Tom sees the importance of creating that connection between each person he meets, aspiring to help them sell their property with minimal stress or buy a property that perfectly fits their needs. Tom enjoys the vibrant demographic that Carnegie and its surrounding suburbs have to offer, from first home buyers to young families, empty-nesters to those who can tell you about days when the milkman and his horse used to wander the streets.
