Jade Hale has taken to real estate like a duck to water. It’s been an amazingly successful 2.5 years for the First National Cleveland agent who was recently a finalist for a national Rookie of the Year award. He was delighted to earn state-wide recognition from the REIQ for his success after just a few months with the agency.
Jade hit the ground running when he started selling houses with one great advantage over his rivals – the fact that his previous career as a photographer took him through several thousand homes on the Bayside, giving him unrivalled and invaluable stock knowledge.
His first job in Brisbane was as a digital advertising manager with realestate.com, Australia’s largest property website, where he spent 18 months before buying an Open2View photographic franchise. For several years he had his own photographic business.
He always knew his background would provide the perfect stepping stone to selling real estate. “Not only did I have marketing expertise and local knowledge, I have qualities which I know cannot be taught, such as enthusiasm and a strong desire to succeed.”
He added: “It’s been a wonderful start to a new career and I’m confident I can continue to help people on the Bayside with their buying, selling, renovating and investing needs.”
Jade, who has dual New Zealand and Canadian nationality, moved with his wife Tania to Brisbane in 2007 to take advantage of the weather and great life-style opportunities.
He lives in Thornlands with Tania and their children Riley (nine) and Caden (eight). On rare days off from selling real estate, he helps coach kids rugby league and enjoys boating, camping and fishing.
