It was great to have the chance to catch up recently with Chris Gladman of HockingStuart Ballarat for a coffee & a chat at one of our new favourites, Higher Society.
As he approaches 9 years in the real estate industry (5 years selling, with the previous 4 in property management), Chris loves his current role, transacting about 60 properties a year, but its clear that he regards his 2 children as a special achievement, against which everything else seems pretty small
Here's some of the topics we covered during the course of our discussion and what I learned about Chris:
His favorite food is – pizza! The Forge is always our go to place!
He loves talking about – Houses… sadly enough! (It is pretty all consuming… cars come a close second! 🚘)
The last song he listened to was – Something from Matchbox 20
His favorite movie genre is – Thriller
He really wishes he had more time to – spend with my two kids
His favorite city is – Melbourne – love a weekend getaway full of great coffee and food!
He thinks the best aspect of his job is – helping clients achieve their property goals
He believes that the one thing all vendors should know is – not all agents are the same!
Chris tells me that if he didn’t sell real estate he would – I would have love to have been an architect! But probably mow lawns (I do like to garden!)
Finally, we didn't want to let Chris go without asking what he thought it was important for people to know about the agency he represents, HockingStuart Ballarat and how he feels that HockingStuart differs from other agencies.
Chris told us that he felt that was about, 'doing the very best for our clients and getting them the best results possible. I’m pretty down to earth with the whole process, and people care expect to deal with the real person, not a fake agent with slick lines and dialogue!'
Thanks for your time Chris & of course, to Higher Society for yet another awesome coffee!
