Starting out in the automotive industry, Sean Johnston had a car-lover’s dream job in service and sales working as the link between people and their prestige cars. Building on technical expertise and an exceptional way with people, Sean rose quickly to the role of senior advisor; ranking on the edge of the Top 10 performers at Mazda Australia and working closely with high-net worth clients to safeguard one of their most significant assets.
So it’s no surprise that Sean progressed towards working with clients on their biggest asset of all - their homes and investment properties. Intensely aware that his vendors’ homes are usually their most significant financial and emotional investment, Sean brings real respect and rare understanding to his clients’ sales. Grounded in his own natural integrity, Sean believes that accountability and transparency are central to every sale… and that listening, understanding and providing honest feedback are the foundation of that transparency.
However, Sean’s talent for communication goes deeper than listening well and responding quickly. Sean’s automotive background lies in diagnosing issues, developing a sophisticated understanding, and conveying that understanding in an engaging and motivating manner. In his real estate career, that translates into developing rapport with buyers, helping them understand benefits, and intuiting the scope of their budget… then building their enthusiasm all the way until the fall of the hammer on auction day!
Outside of work, real estate and cars remain at the centre of Sean’s world. At home in the local area, Sean and his wife have bought and sold homes over a number of years - moving up the property ladder, but rarely moving far from the area he knows so well. Still passionate about vehicles of every type, Sean admits to a love of all things that go fast (especially motor-bikes), however he does admit to a developing interest in golf …as long as the fairways are running fast!
