Rod had wanted to be in real estate from the age of fourteen, but life had other plans for Rod first.
He started in the family construction business, which lead to his passion for construction and property.
Chasing his dreams, Rod moved to the big smoke, like everyone did. The plan was to work hard and save for the Australian dream; “the first home” purchase. After four years of civil and commercial construction, Rod returned home.
It wasn’t long before he was running his own business.
The business flourished, from homes on the Merewether strip, to major nationally funded infrastructure projects. During this time, Rod gained invaluable experience in winning contracts with multi national companies, but best of all building long term relationships with staff and clients.
All this time Rod had been building up a property portfolio. And around ten years ago he enlisted Ben to act for him at an auction.
Rod was standing between his wife, Kim, and Ben. They all became excited as the auction neared the end…
And the house was theirs!
They all reacted with joy, Kim especially, as she pushed Rod out of the way and grabbed Ben, hugging and kissing him!
Not quite what Rod had been expecting.
But this was also to be the start of a firm friendship between Rod and Ben.
With the setting up of Villager Property, Rod finally achieved his dream of becoming a real estate agent.
With his wide-ranging experience in business and the building industry, Rod brought exceptional skills to Villager:
- unique insights into building and development nationwide.
- contacts nationwide within the building/housing industry.
- outstanding negotiation and people skills.
- experience in managing a workforce.
- a strong work ethic.
- reliability, honesty, and an easygoing nature.
It seems Rod was always destined to be a Villager.
His motto says it all:
“Be yourself. Be honest. Try to leave everyone happier for the experience”.
