Stone Real Estate Queensland has welcomed independent agent Shane Evans as the brand’s maiden business partner in the Sunshine State.
A top selling agent in the northern Gold Coast region, Mr Evans has become principal of Stone Real Estate Coomera.
Head of Stone Queensland, Scott Kelly, welcomed Mr Evans to the team and noted his addition to the network was an asset for the brand.
“Partnering with high-calibre people is a non-negotiable for Stone Queensland and Shane epitomises this requirement as our first business partner in Queensland,” Mr Kelly said.
“Shane’s exceptional leadership skills and demonstrated high performance also made him a natural choice for us. We truly couldn’t be happier for him to become Stone Real Estate’s first business partner in Queensland and look forward to helping him further the great ambitions he has for his business.”
Mr Evans said being a leading agent in what is now Queensland’s fastest growing region influenced his decision to join Stone.
“Enjoying great success to date makes joining a network like Stone that is progressive and forward-thinking a natural step to help me achieve my future growth ambitions,” Mr Evans said.
Other major attractions were Stone’s one client data base and training methodology, Mr Evans said, two factors that would help enable him to expand his business beyond traditional parameters while attracting other top agents that want to take their business to the next level.
The 46-year-old father of four and former Telstra Gold Coast Young Entrepreneur finalist will be joined by Sally-Ann Cook who becomes business manager of Stone Real Estate Coomera.
The Coomera region also aligns strategically with Stone’s expansion plans, being recognised as the fastest growing area in south-east Queensland and possessing one of the strongest property markets in Australia.
“There are so many people relocating to this corridor between the Gold Coast and Brisbane from south of the border especially,” Mr Evans commented.
“The demographic is predominantly families as well as the older generations who are moving here to both downsize and be closer to their children and grand-children.”
