The opportunity to do things differently and be a part of the real estate revolution is what motivated Matthew Skene to move away from the franchise model and launch his own brand, Skene & Co powered by UrbanX.
Over the past five years, Matthew has been able to gain valuable real estate and sales experience in the Sydney market and, after moving to the Byron region with his family, he has been able to bring his wealth of experience to the local market.
Since moving to the Byron area, Matthew has been able to grow his personal brand in the region, and after selling a number of multi-million-dollar properties in the area, and achieving amazing results for his vendors, Matthew decided it was time to go out on own, so he could run his own business the way he has always wanted to.
“Going out on my own was always something that I wanted to do, but I have ended up making the decision to do it sooner than I expected after giving away so much of my commission,” he said.
“I am excited to launch Skene & Co and to be able to make my own decisions and do what is best for my clients.”
As an agent focusing on the prestige market in the Byron region, the decision to partner with UrbanX was easy for Matthew. With a passion for innovation and providing amazing service for his clients, Matthew knew that the UrbanX offering was the perfect partnership for him because of the brand’s different approach to real estate and how it aligned with his business values.
“I have been following the UrbanX brand for over a year,” he said.
“I loved the concept and the innovation they were providing to the industry. They are completely disrupting the real estate model and I wanted to be a part of it.”
The opportunity to launch his own business with the support of the UrbanX team, really resonated with Matthew because of the additional time he will have to spend with his clients and on growing the Skene & Co brand in the local area.
“I love meeting new people from all walks of life and find the challenge of matching buyers with sellers an exciting part of the journey,” he said.
“With the support from the UrbanX team, I will be able to spend more time with my clients to ensure they have a stress-free experience. I’m excited to be able to work for my vendors under the Skene & Co brand.
“The brand is a representation of me and as the owner of the business, I will always go over and above for my clients and put in the extra work.”
