Winning Consistency: Tim Longmore

Tim Longmore is a Senior Property Consultant and Auctioneer at Noel Jones’ newest office in Mitcham. He was an REIV Agent of the Year finalist in 2014, and runner-up Salesperson of the Year for the Noel Jones Group.

Tim-LongmoreThe Mitcham area of Melbourne, Victoria not only offers a diverse range of homes dating from the 1950s and 1960s; there are also many brand new apartments. With the Dandenongs Valley Parklands on the doorstep at Vermont South, the outdoorsy lifestyle is a unique drawcard for those who relish natural beauty and space to wander.

With its selection of shops, restaurants and cafes satisfying those seeking laidback social outings, it’s also a great place for families, with good schools and parks, excellent transport links and a relaxed atmosphere. No wonder Tim and his wife Jess have chosen to live in this beautiful part of Victoria. Having experienced all the emotions of buying a property himself he can identify with his clients, and his local knowledge means he can offer personal insights and practical advice.

What motivated you to get into real estate?
Real estate is both a lifestyle and a career where you are rewarded for the amount of effort and expertise you put in. I see it as the pinnacle of sales, underpinned by the knowledge that at the end of the day you’re assisting people, and for me this is the best combination!

What have been the biggest challenges for you so far?

One of the biggest challenges for me has been learning how to lead a team, and especially to remain consistent month in, month out.

What or who inspires you?
John McGrath is one of my heroes – he never fails to inspire me.

In your briefcase right now is…
Do people still have briefcases? My briefcase is my iPhone. It has everything I need from business tools to books to banking.

I couldn’t live without…
I couldn’t live without my iPhone or my wife, Jess. Not in that order! I’d be lost without them.

What do you enjoy most about Elite Agent Magazine?
I first heard about Elite Agent Magazine on Facebook (via my iPhone, otherwise known as my briefcase!). When the first issue arrived at our office I was instantly impressed with the current and relevant content. Now I always enjoying reading it and hearing about the latest real estate news Australia-wide.

What advice would you give someone just starting out in real estate?
The first thing I’d say would be to get a business coach or mentor immediately. Invest in your own future; have clear goals and unrealistic expectations to grow and be the best you can. Make your goals so big you think they are impossible! But I’d also point out that we’re here to serve and help the community so don’t have an ego. We help people move.

Words to live by?
How we do anything is how we do everything. It’s simple but not easy.
