When asked what the most important things in life are, Jeremy cited family, friends and healthy relationships. Consequently, the aspect of real estate that Jeremy most enjoys is establishing and maintaining a good relationship with a client.

Jeremy has a charming and delightful, if some what cheeky, personality which often puts him in good stead to maintaining his client relationships for far longer than the duration of an ordinary campaign.
He takes his business seriously and personally. He is committed to ensuring the best possible result for all his clients. With thorough preparation, commitment, knowledge and research, Jeremy uses all the important tools in ensuring that a vendor’s sale is a satisfying one. Jeremy has a proven record of learning everything there is to know about one’s property, the market, recent trends in particular demographics as well as being aware of prospective buyers. Essentially, Jeremy has an infectious sense of humor.
Fortunately, he can always be counted upon to see the lighter side of all situations and this often helps him personally when supporting the Carlton Football Club! By coupling Jeremy’s confidence with his down to earth personality, he really is a people person. Besides his love for football other interests include golf and cricket. Jeremy’s determination to win when playing sport is the same determination he holds when working on behalf of vendors or purchasers – determined to achieve the best possible result on all counts! The same commitment and determination that drives this hard working agent to excel in his personal life is also evident in his family life with Jeremy’s lovely wife and their adorable children; Son Ryder and daughter Indigo being the centre of his attention.

A marketing graduate with extensive retail sales experience, Mark was destined for success when he opted to pursue his career in real estate.“Real estate is a much more challenging and rewarding sales environment than retail because of the ongoing communication and negotiating it involves with people from a wide variety of backgrounds.”
Mark has lived locally for more than 20 years and obtained his real estate grounding as a member of his colleague Spiro Drossos’ number one sales team across the Barry Plant network of 80 offices.
“This experience with Spiro coupled with my marketing degree enables me to develop and implement effective marketing campaigns that reach the maximum number of potential purchasers and deliver superior results to my clients.”
Energetic and totally focused on his clients’ needs, Mark is a firm believer in the merits of consultation during every phase of the selling process.
“In my view it is imperative that all parties to a sale be kept fully appraised of the situation every step of the way until settlement.”
Mark shares the Barry Plant commitment to service excellence and says, “The company has become a leading real estate network through its ethical approach to doing business, outstanding public image and consistently maintaining high standards.”
