Henzells Agency is very pleased to announce the appointment of highly-experienced real estate professional, Chris Smith, to the sales team.
Chris will be focusing his energy on the southern Sunshine Coast hinterland as well as the high growth areas of Kawana Forest and Wurtulla.
A classic car enthusiast with a passion for helping people, Chris has an outstanding sales background spanning over 40 years, starting in the motor trade before finding top gear in the property sector after switching careers in the 1990s. Chris has worked as a sales person, sales manager and principal licensee of his own office which he established in 2000 with his wife, Marcia.
He cut his teeth with an independent agency in Caboolture and Morayfield for 3 years before opening Elders Morayfield, growing the business to 600 property managements and employing 6 sales consultants. They sold that business and recharged the batteries with a well-earned road trip around Australia for a year before operating another agency in Maleny for a short time, until the lure of the Coast proved too strong.
Having recently relocated from Witta to Aroona, you might spot Chris on his beloved postie bike doing letterbox drops, which he says is a great conversation starter and way to interact with the community.
"I love meeting people and visiting their homes to see what they have done. It’s a passion of mine," he said.
"I have been an investor myself for many years. I love being involved in the transition, helping people buy and sell, helping them get the results they want."
"The reason I love working in property so much is the interaction with people from all walks of life and helping them with their different wants and needs."
Chris said the hinterland property market was performing extremely strong, fuelled by steady Brisbane migration and people transitioning from the Coast for a more tranquil life.
"8 to 10 years ago the majority of the market was retirees in the 65-years plus bracket. That has changed dramatically and now most of the people moving in are in their 50s with teenage children."
"It’s all about the lifestyle," he said.
Welcome to the team, Chris!
