Sotheby’s International Realty Greater Australia has appointed Gayle Walker, a Sotheby’s Realty Director from Sydney, to head up the Greater Hobart operations for the brand.
Gayle will lead the launch of a new Sotheby’s Realty office in the Sandy Bay area with the aim of offering a stronger local community connection while providing local, national and international exposure for Hobart properties.
After returning to Sydney from many years in London, Europe and the US in 1999, Gayle says her global experience translated well into the property market, enabling her to relate to people from all walks of life.
Gayle merged her business with Sydney Sotheby’s International Realty in 2015 and became principal of the Lower North Shore office.
“Gayle is undoubtedly a huge asset to the Hobart operations,” said Scott Bowie, Principal at Sotheby’s International Realty Greater Australia.
“Her sales record speaks for itself, and her long and varied experience will certainly be of great benefit to her clients.”
Gayle is well known for her community-mindedness and will endeavour to continue that spirit in the Tasmanian office.
“I spent 19 years working and living in Sydney’s Lower North Shore, and am looking forward to building the same kind of community here in Hobart.” said Gayle.
“Tasmania’s luxury property market shows no signs of abating and I can’t wait to bring my experience into this exciting, unique and stunningly beautiful area.
“We live in a global world now; people are relocating more than ever before, and it’s wonderful having the added benefit of the immense Sotheby’s worldwide network for my clients here in Hobart.”
The new office will shortly launch several properties aligning with the vision to establish Sotheby’s International Realty as the luxury leader in Tasmania.
