    Rob Forde

    Regional Director - Harcourts Pacific

    At the age of 26 Rob was appointed as the CEO of Harcourts NSW in Sydney (a key growth market for the international brand) and within two years of his appointment he saw 75% growth across the state. Rob was raised in regional South Australia and attributes much of his success to his grounded upbringing. “It is critical in business to treat people the way that you would like to be treated and never take anything for granted.” Rob’s passion has always been delivering exceptional service for all clients from all walks of life. This passion and drive has been responsible for Rob’s multi-faceted involvement in the Real Estate Industry. He has run a successful sales and property management business in Sydney’s exclusive Lower North Shore region and during his time in senior leadership roles, Rob continued to work as a senior auctioneer, selling around $270,000,000 worth of property under at auction. Having completed a double degree in International Business and International Studies, Rob has the knowledge to offer his team great insight into Real Estate business with a strong focus on recruitment, business planning and international marketing within the Harcourts network. Rob understands that successful outcomes stem from hard work paired with tactful strategies and he is determined to be an integral part in building a real estate network that delivers an exceptional client experience across the board. Even more importantly, Rob offers belief. He is an enthusiastic and passionate individual who believes in his clients and believes in his own ability to achieve an outstanding result. Outside of work you will find Rob at one of California’s local beaches as he is a keen surfer. “Surfing gives me the perfect escape, it’s just what I need to clear my head and recharge.”

        Ben Brady

        Director of Auctions

        Commencing in the real estate industry at the young age of 15, Ben began working as a Personal Assistant to the business owners of 3 real estate offices. His ambitious attitude drove his career as he quickly became a qualified agent; his “Sold” signs saturated the houses of his local area. Not content as a leading salesman, Ben’s impressive leadership ability and salesmanship opened the door for him to progress to both Sales Manager and part owner. Using his experience in communicating, negotiating and marketing, the 3 office, 150 salespeople network quickly grew to 5 offices and 300 salespeople and was one of Australia’s biggest real estate office networks. After this successful venture, it was clear that he had a profound understanding of how to transform the average producing salesman into a top 1% salesman, and an average business into a sales powerhouse. With the runs on the board and the thirst to share his successful tactics, he founded Brady & Co Auctions in combination with Harcourts Real Estate. This direction ensured that the business owners and salespeople within the expanding franchise of Harcourts would have not just an auction company and a higher volume of real estate transactions. Brady & Co would also provide the coaching and mentorship their businesses needed to avoid hitting the “middle of the road,” and instead obtain the highest possible market share. From the very beginning of Ben’s career his understanding and belief in the auction process was evident, and it is to this process which Ben attributes his success as an agent and sales manager. Becoming entrenched in the auction marketing process and gaining satisfaction from the above-market results obtained for his sellers, he quickly came to be recognized as one of Australia’s best Auctioneers. Not only has Ben been instrumental in growing many successful real estate businesses and worked with numerous agents to provide timely and effective business solutions, but he has also earned the respect of his peers in the industry throughout Australasia. Ben is a young, charismatic individual whose passion for selling property is nothing short of contagious. Ben has recently transferred to California to start his successful auction/real estate consulting business and is responsible for the introduction of the auction process for regular retail properties in the USA. Separating Ben from others in the property arena is his gregarious personality, tremendous work ethic, and dedication to providing his clients with a positive result. With every client he works with, Ben establishes a series of fundamental guidelines to ensure their auctions are a streamlined and efficient process. He is continually striving for success and total commitment to his clients as he has a firm understanding that the sale or purchase of a property is one of the most important decisions a person will ever make.
