In 2004 having called just 5 auctions Chris won the inaugural Harcourts Australia Auctioneer of the Year competition, and in 2005 in his first attempt, Chris won the Real Estate Institute of Queensland Auctioneer of the Year award.

Shannon Davis is Director and Principal of Image Property Management in Brisbane.
Shannon joined the property management industry in 2009 after beginning his working life as a primary school teacher. Shannon’s teaching career spanned 10 years and included stints in Brisbane, London and Italy.
Having previously invested in property and renovated homes, his intention was to buy the real estate company, once he had ‘learnt the ropes’. Shannon took ownership of Image Property Management and decided there was little point growing the business until all of the current clients were happy with their services.
The first 15 months saw very little growth – the worst time was the 2011 floods. It was very stressful catching up on all the work in that period of the year as well as the complications a natural disaster brings.
From March that year, with trustworthy staff and best practice systems in place, Shannon became the first BDM for Image. Taking a sales approach, with superior appraisal, listing presentation and unique selling propositions Image has seen remarkable growth. Shannon credits staffing, best practice systems, focusing on letting periods, mentors and adding the right technology as the key drivers that helped the business win managements.
In October 2013, Shannon became Head Property Strategist for Brisbane in Michael Yardney’s Metropole organisation. This allows Shannon to combine his two loves of investing and property management and provide value, expertise and experience to fellow investors.
Shannon has been a guest on Real Estate Talk, Your Home on 4BC, AREC Lounge and his expert opinions appear in the Australian Property Investor magazine and Winning in Property management resource.

Deniz does not come from any academic background, he was a business owner in a regional town called Nowra which is on the South Coast of NSW in the Shoalhaven district just a few hours’ drive south of Sydney. He was a fruito for most of his life after he left school. One thing he tells people when coaching is “There’s no emails in Fruit”, if a new coffee shop opened up, he had to call them or go and visit them to get the business. Deniz believes that real estate has the same concept, it’s all about asking for the business and what experience you can give your clients. Real estate isn’t just about collecting rent and charging a fee.
In 2012 & 2013 Leading Property Managers of Australia awarded Deniz the best BDM for two years in a row for “Excellence in Business Development” So in 2013 Deniz started BDMCoach.com.au.
Some of Deniz’s clients that he’s done consulting and presenting with is already an impressive line-up of clients that include Rental Express, McGrath Group, Philip Webb and more. Deniz started as a BDM in May of 2009 for Integrity Real estate, with consecutive numbers of 76, 191, 237, 317 & 104 in 4 months of 2013, a total of 925 new managements from 1077 presentations in 48 months.

Andrew is a Certified Practising Accountant and has a Bachelor of Business majoring in Accounting from Queensland University of Technology.
Working as a Real Estate Accountant for 3 years preparing monthly management reports for 25 of south east Queensland’s leading Real Estate agents, lead to his involvement in bringing the Franchise of RE/MAX to Australia.

Andrew went on to become a partner in prorentals.com.au, a 100% pure property management company which opened for business in 1998 with 31 properties. prorentals.com.au managed over 1,700 properties and employed 32 full time staff.

It is this first-hand experience that led Andrew to co-create inspectrealestate.com.au. Andrew identified the need for a solution to the time consuming task of manually following up on leads, booking inspections, and creating inspection runs. The inspectrealestate.com.au software automatically captures tenant details and allows tenants to book inspections online. It enables Property Managers to plan their inspection runs with the simple press of a button, allowing them to focus on the real task at hand – Property Management.
