Our company vision is based on a solid set of ethics.
Methodical, committed and tenacious in his search for the best result, it's no surprise to learn that award-winning agent, Gareth Apswoude also has an Honours degree in Science. Finding his formula for success in the real estate industry, Gareth has built a decade–long career that has seen him ranked Top 5 in his Group since 2013, rated Suburb Winner by Rate My Agent most years since inception and, now, welcomed as a key member of the Leadership Team and future Director at OBrien Oakleigh.
This level of success has come through a formidable work ethic and an almost fanatical commitment to service. From the moment of listing, to the final negotiation, Gareth's methodical approach is designed to enhance his clients' experience. Committed to creating a stress-free environment for vendors, while maintaining high-energy momentum in the marketing of the property, Gareth's goal is a service which maximises selling price AND client satisfaction.
A self-confessed perfectionist, who has gathered a like-minded team to see through his vision of the perfect sale, Gareth achieves his 'perfect outcome' by adding value at every stage. Backed by a depth of local knowledge that comes from a working life spent entirely in the area, Gareth's drive and energy is seemingly boundless as he connects with buyers, commits to the needs of vendors, and inspires his team to go the extra mile on behalf of their clients.
It's a level of energy that continues into Gareth's out-of-hours-life. With a busy young family and active community involvement, Gareth's downtime revolves around home, sport and the good life. Whether it's catching up on the full round of AFL games, taking time out with the family, or concocting a feast to share with friends, Gareth has the same winning formula – a love of life, a commitment to achievement and a genuine interest in sharing success.
