From laying bricks in freezing England to a warm welcome at Henzells Agency, it’s been an inspirational journey built on strong foundations for Jacob Hussey.
Henzells is delighted to introduce our newest recruit who joins the company as Sales Associate working alongside our professional sales team to achieve the best outcomes for renters and buyers.
Formerly from the UK, Jacob moved to the Sunshine Coast with his family at eight years of age, where he continues to appreciate the laid-back lifestyle and beautiful beaches.
Now 20, he can appreciate the blue skies perhaps more than most, having recently gaining the all clear from hodgkin’s lymphoma, a blood cancer he bravely battled for more than a year.
“Life is precious. Going through something like that certainly gives you perspective,’’ Jacob said.
Jacob’s fighting spirit, desire to learn, helpful nature and excellent communication skills makes him a perfect fit at Henzells, where he is already showing signs of a promising career ahead.
Jacob finished his schooling Pacific Lutheran College, Caloundra, with ‘really long hair’ and no solid plans for the future.
He travelled overseas to weigh up his options, working for a time in his grandfather’s bricklaying business near Cambridge and even as a traffic controller on building sites.
While in Brisbane where he was undergoing his regular treatments, Jacob gained his first taste of real estate, working as an associate for an agency on the city’s south side.
“I have always had a love of architecture and a desire to help people, real estate seemed like a natural progression. I’m looking forward to taking my time and learning everything properly.
“Henzells has been a great environment to come to, there is always somebody to help you out,’’ Jacob said.
Outside of work Jacob enjoys surfing at Moffat Headland, going to the gym and cheering for his favourite football team, Liverpool.
Onwards and upwards Jacob. Welcome to the team!
