Starting out in the property industry while studying for her degree in Property and Real Estate at Deakin University, Jacinta Cotton is a true self-starter with an unfailing work ethic. From an early career generating leads and developing buyer relationships for a large Melbourne builder, to stepping into her local area to work alongside Simon Wheller in the Buxton Bentleigh team, Jacinta’s fast-paced and energetic approach characterises everything she does.
A warm and welcoming face alongside Simon at open-for-inspections, Jacinta is one of the first points of contact for many potential buyers and one of the best possible advocates ever for her vendors’ homes. An excellent listener and exceptional communicator, Jacinta takes time to get to know the personalities and priorities of potential buyers, before developing a response that engages and motivates them based on her knowledge of both the property and the state of the market.
But while Jacinta’s people skills make her a rare ‘front of house’ asset, it’s her behind-the-scenes involvement that can add significant value to both the selling price and her vendors’ experience. A fastidious organiser and deadline over-achiever, Jacinta ensures that every call is answered, every request is followed up and every piece of paperwork is prepared ahead of time so that her vendors can prepare for their sale with peace-of-mind.
Growing up in a household of medical professionals, Jacinta’s early focus was on a healthcare career, but an early interest in property saw her step off the family path, divert toward studying property and hasn’t looked back. Embracing the industry with enthusiasm, Jacinta brings the same energy she has brought to every aspect of her life; whether that’s aiming for the goal posts for Brighton Beach Junior Football Club, shooting for goals on the basketball court, or achieving her work goals by kicking off in the industry at a young age!
