"As a real estate agent, your reputation is paramount. You are entrusted to make the selling process as streamlined and flawless as possible and of course to achieve the best outcome for your clients, every time. Finding like-minded people to join you in this process is of the utmost importance. The blend has to be right. I have been fortunate to have found an Auctioneer who not only has a lifetime of accolades to date, but who exudes professionalism, knowledge of the real estate industry, charisma and a passion that makes him top of his league. Bill McDonald is a solid rock for my business. I have found a perfect partner to join me in my selling process. He has become a welcoming face at Auction day to the Acacia Ridge community and beyond and I thank him with sincerity for his commitment and comradery, even if he knows more dad jokes than I do!"
