Place Nundah Locks Top Gun Trophy Agent To Equip Stable

The brand’s Northside Brisbane outfit has added another “seasoned” agent to its slate.

Jonathan Tesese – an established agent in the area’s prestige market – has officially joined the Place Nundah team.

He will be the fifth experienced agent to join the Place Ascot and Place Nundah team in just four months.

Mr. Tesese entered the real estate industry in 2020 just as COVID-19 was sweeping the world, but he shared that he did not let the pandemic negatively affect his new career path.

“When I entered the industry, I wanted to do everything right, which meant not skipping any steps. Starting out as a team was the best way to learn how to be a successful real estate agent,” he said.

According to Mr. Tesese, the skills he acquired throughout his long stint in recruitment before being in real estate – including being relatable, empathetic, building relationships and having difficult conversations about business and employment – had been easily transferable when he made the career shift.

“Real estate is much the same – it’s about relationships, building trust and listening; however, it is someone’s most important asset,” he explained.

His strategy seemed to pay off, as Mr. Tesese managed to sell millions of properties on another team in two years and was able to build a loyal clientele on his own.

Mr Tesese said his leap to Place Estate Agents was driven by his desire to be a leader in the prestige market – a goal he believes he will achieve by aligning himself with the brand.

The Trophy Market Agent will now work under the management of Patrick Mckinnon, Drew Davies and Narelle Lorensen – who were announced as the new trio of Team Principals Place Ascot and Place Nundah in June.

Commenting on their team’s newest player, Mr McKinnon believes Mr Tesese will go on to become one of Brisbane’s top agents under their brand.

“We are thrilled to have someone of Jonathan’s experience join our team at Place Nundah; in such a short time, he was able to break into a tough market and build customer loyalty,” he said.
