I literally walked into Canberra in 1998 and have never wanted to leave! After trekking some 750kms in a 43-day adventure across the Australian Alps, I was apprehensive about arriving in the big smoke. Instead, I found Canberra to be a breath of fresh air with all the conveniences of a city, with the atmosphere and friendliness of a country town.
While growing up in Melbourne I really enjoyed getting out and exploring the Dandenong Ranges on both foot and bike, so having such great access to the outdoors is one of the many things that I love about living in Canberra. Now as a father of two young kids, much of my spare time is spent with them in the great outdoors, and nothing brings me more joy than watching them exploring and playing in Canberra's famous bush reserves.
I joined the Real Estate industry in 1999, and have been fortunate enough to enjoy many accolades and awards, including admission into the Elders Real Estate Elite Club, the Pride of Workmanship award from Rotary International, and over 55 top sales awards. I have assisted literally hundreds of buyers and sellers successfully complete their real estate transaction with minimum fuss and stress.
After 10 years as the Managing Director of Elders Belconnen, I was looking for new growth opportunities and made the decision to join the Ray White Belconnen group. Their commitment to outstanding results and six star client service fitted perfectly with our own philosophies, and it has been hugely exciting to be part of such a dynamic team.
My mission is to make buying, selling or investing in Canberra real estate a simple and successful process for you I look forward to working with you in the near future.

Our approach to business is fairly basic: We do everything that we can to look after our team, and then make business decisions by considering what is best for the customer.
That simple approach has allowed us to scale from a tiny 3 person operation in Belconnen, to one of the industry’s most respected real estate operations in the country. Our team is bound by a collective ambition and taking extreme pride in the role we play in the transfer of home ownership.
By operating from two large offices in Canberra’s North & South, the Ray White Canberra team balances the service level and systems you would expect from the country's largest brand, with a highly localised approach that celebrates the unique identity of each suburb and location.
Within the real estate industry our sales team are famous for our expertise in Auction. We are most proud of our average bidders at Auction consistently exceeding the industry average, which allows us to create competition for our sellers and achieve higher prices. We don’t take this responsibility lightly, and train this art relentlessly combined with how to negotiate on the Auction floor. Want to know how to pick a good real estate agent? Ask them how they work with a single bidder at Auction and see how confident you are in their response.
Our rental team is known for respectfully walking the tightrope between maximising the return on investment for our landlords, and helping our tenants find a place to call home. We don’t leave customer satisfaction to chance, and monitor how happy our clients are on a daily basis. We value feedback, and act quickly to address any concerns.
Buyers can access our mortgage broking team led by Nitish Kumar. Like real estate agents, not all brokers are the same, and the Loanmarket Horizon team are at the top of the ladder for compliance and customer satisfaction.
Proudly founder led by Canberra locals Ben Faulks & Scott Jackson, and underpinned by more than 120 years of family ownership by the White Family, regardless of what your real estate needs might be, you are in safe hands with Ray White Canberra.
