Moving into the real estate industry from a successful career at Mercedes-Benz, Simon Wood found the transition remarkably easy. The leading salesperson at the Toorak and Camberwell dealerships, Simon earned his stripes as a consummate sales professional- consistently ranking within the top 10% in Australia in his last years in the car industry. Although, Simon's greater passion for property drew him into real estate, while his experience and skills quickly grew his success. Whatever the product he says, the sales approach is the same.
Always focused on achieving above-expectation results for his clients, Simon believes his ability to "read" and develop rapport with people provides him with a genuine competitive edge. Simon's key focus is on helping potential buyers build an appreciation for the value of a property and through that appreciation, building on the sales price his vendors' can achieve. Simon believes the key to success in sales is through thorough follow-up with courteous and careful consideration when advising clients on buying and selling. Most crucial of all is winning the trust of potential buyers so that they can bid with confidence and provide the ultimate win/win of a gratified purchaser and satisfied vendor.
Growing up in the Bentleigh, Simon's early years, schooling, social and sporting all centre on the area. Still a local boy at heart and purchasing a home in the area Simon continues to build on an already solid network. A member of Yarra Yarra Golf Club and Dendy Park Tennis Club, Simon's time for sport is often limited by weekends "at play" in the real estate market but he does remain focused on achieving his goals. Simon's genuine and down to earth approach, combined with a proven track record for achieving outstanding results, makes him one of Bentleigh's most desirable agents.
