Greg Sinclair. B.Com
Licensed Estate Agent [Vic & NSW.]
Commencing my Real Estate career in Sydney in January 1970, I was first employed by one of the leading, long established, residential firms in the inner Eastern Suburbs at Double Bay.
In 1973, as a result of a large transaction sourced, marketed and sold by me, I was approached and accepted a position with one of Australia's highest net worth individuals, who retained my services exclusively for the acquisition, re-zoning and sale of a variety of commercial and residential properties in northern NSW and south-east Queensland. It was a rewarding and enlightening experience.
Returning to Melbourne in 1979 with a young family, I was employed by the distinguished firm of "R.T.Edgar" listing, marketing and selling premium residential property, principally in Boroondara and Stonnington.
Appointed a director of a rival firm in 1982, I continued my real estate career in the same up market areas, all the while improving my skills as a Real Estate Agent, particularly on-site Auctioneering.
In 1988, a partner and I identified a market segment and an opportunity not well catered for within the City of Boroondara and so established the firm "SINCLAIR & COMPANY", initially in Balwyn and subsequently in Camberwell and Canterbury.
"Sinclair & Company" was an immediate success, creating and maintaining an enviable reputation for innovative marketing and exceptional prices, especially for the more expensive properties in the area, quickly attaining market leadership in this segment and retaining its competitive advantage through higher standards, for many years.
In 2000, I successfully sold "Sinclair & Company" to its biggest competitor "JellisCraig and Company" as I had a desire for a career change into Buyers Advocacy, maintaining excellent relations with that firm as it has progressed from strength to strength.
With the benefit of an excellent private client base as a result of 45yrs involvement in the Acquisition and Sale of a wide variety of Victorian property, ranging from Residential through Commercial and Industrial to Leisure and the highly specialised field of Age Care, and, with a range of established personal and professional contacts at the highest level expected of an successful long time practitioner, I continue to enjoy my participation within the industry as an experienced and well known Melbourne property Agent & Buyers Advocate.
In my spare time I enjoy "foolin around" in old boats and classic cars, the footy, occasional golf played poorly, weekends away, [Auctions permitting] , & European holidays,[ but not with the dollar below 75 cents!] I am a keen student of Politics, History and Architecture, walking my Shih Tzu's, the company of family and friends and of course, "a glass or three!" To "keep my eye in" & maintain excellent industry connections I continue to conduct property Auctions for old industry friends most weekends
I have a Batchelor of Commerce from the U.N.S.W, hold current Real Estate Licenses in Victoria and N.S.W., am a member in good standing for 35yrs of the Real Estate Institute of Victoria and have the cumulative experience in the conduct of over 2,800 property Auctions, in addition to that gained in a long list of successful marketing campaigns & property purchases, both "on & off market", for satisfied clients, to offer.
