Taking the lead: Branthwaite Real Estate launches with UrbanX
Branthwaite Real Estate, led by seasoned real estate agent Bill Branthwaite, has recently launched in partnership with UrbanX.
Bill, who has 16 years of experience in the industry, made the decision to start his own agency after a knee surgery and rehabilitation period allowed him to reflect on his career. He had the revelation that he “could do this under my own name,” and within 12 months he had done exactly that.
Built on honesty and integrity, Branthwaite Real Estate offers a traditional, hands-on approach combined with the support of Australia’s top platform for high-performing agents, UrbanX. Bill chose to partner with UrbanX for its youthful energy and professionalism, as well as access to its team of 75+ members and leading technology.
When discussing why Bill chose to partner with UrbanX, he highlighted the importance and his desire to pair his experience with a fresh perspective. “UrbanX has youthful freshness and professionalism, and as an older established agent, it’s great to have the support and guidance from so many young dynamos”. Bill continues, “UrbanX thinks of everything and nothing is too much trouble”.
Bill sees leading his own business as an opportunity to pursue his own goals, mentor new talent, and deepen his connection with clients by understanding their needs. With support from UrbanX, Bill is freed from daily administrative tasks, allowing him to focus on delivering exceptional service.
As Bill reflects on his career, he is thankful for the help he has received from previous principals but is more excited about what lies ahead. He explains how leading his own business gives him “The freedom to pursue my own goals both in business and professionally and maybe to be a mentor for new emerging talent.”
“People don’t necessarily remember everything you say, but they never forget how you made them feel… I am very personable. A friendly, helpful and articulate agent with a strong work ethic and attention to detail. I like finding out what’s important to my clients before offering solutions.
“For me, it’s all part of a lifelong journey that I do not tire from…It’s really exciting now to see how modern technology is improving some of the ways we did things even a decade or so ago and I am even more excited about how our industry may look in the next 5-10 years.
“I love the way technology is changing our role and the flexibility of lifestyle that a successful estate agent can enjoy.”
Excited about the future of the industry and the role of technology, Bill is eager to bring a unique blend of traditional practices and modern strategies to the Mornington Peninsula market.
