Shane Colquhoun, LJ Hooker Nerang, LJ Hooker Coomera and LJ Hooker Pacific Pines

Shane started his career in 1999 in the First National network as a residential salesperson and was quick to achieve number one status in the State of Queensland for Sales revenue within only 4 years. Shane’s peak selling period saw him personally write around $1m of sales revenue in a year, with an average sale price of approximately $280,000

The highlight of his ‘selling’ career was to achieve ‘REIQ Gold Coast Salesperson of the Year’ for 2 consecutive years in 2003 and 2004.

Shane purchased LJ Hooker Nerang in 2003, an office that was established as an LJ Hooker franchise in 1989. He immediately showed a natural leadership ability to drive up office revenue, sales team numbers and the property management portfolio to obtain the office’s first state award of ‘Best Business Growth’ for Queensland in 2005.

Shane also has ownership in LJ Hooker Coomera which was purchased in partnership in 2004. Later he opend an office at Pacific Pines.  Today, his three offices are among the top performing offices on the Gold Coast.

As a note of remembrance, Shane had ownership of an office at Beaudesert, which suffered the loss of an employee through a tragic accident, when a vehicle drove through the shop front in 2007. The personal endurance throughout that difficult time were to be commended, however his recollection of support from the entire LJ Hooker network would never be forgotten.

Shane has built dynamic teams & individuals and has a natural ability to create the necessary energy & culture that is needed in teams to obtain great results. Today’s goals are all about ‘what the team can achieve’ and succession planning is top of mind. Pretty much a non-selling Principal, Shane focuses on mentoring people to become the best they can be within this industry.

Franchise owners have always been welcome to ‘tap in’ to the resources and systems that have obviously worked for his three offices and the offer to assist anybody in sales or management to take their business to the next level is always there.

Other highlights of Shane’s career include being nominated as Franchise Owner of the Year in 2006, 2007, 2008 & 2010, becoming a finalist in REIQ’s Large Agency of the Year in 2007 and winning LJ Hooker Managing Directors Best Cell award in 2008.

Shane says “I welcome ANYBODY within the LJ Hooker network to call, visit or email me for any information or advice that I hope could be of value to them.....ANYTIME!
