Teaming Up To Give You More!

Changing times have called for a change in mindset for selling real estate.  Sellers want more value for their money when it comes to selling their biggest asset, with market disruptors claiming that all real estate agents are Porsche driving selfie takers.  We are here to tell you that this is not true!
Well not in all cases anyway, Gavin Trewin (from First National Burleigh office) and Chris Pole (also from First National Burleigh) are two such agents who genuinely want to get you the best price for your home and make the process as easy and stress free as possible for both the Seller and Buyer.
Gavin and Chris have taken a proactive approach to the changing times and joined forces to become “Team GC”.

For these guys, two is always better than one and this is a perfect example in real estate: "We want to make sure all bases are covered, by making sure that our clients get the attention they deserve, no corners are cut in promoting the property and every person that comes to an open home is given the time and attention they deserve so we can achieve the best possible price and conditions for the sale of the home", they said.

A simple checklist below is of what is done during the process of selling your home, by having two agents Gavin and Chris working side by side making sure that each one of these are done effectively and with care. Although most agents will do these tasks as well, the attention to detail may often not be the same.

Team GC’s List:


  1. Initial visit to your home
  2. Discuss selling requirements (i.e. time schedule, price extension)
