An international network has made an executive appointment to its Gold Coast office as it prepares to capitalise on the opportunities rising in the Queensland markets.

Lisa Halpin has been appointed by Queensland Sotheby’s International Realty to head up its new North Gold Coast office.

Ms Halpin formerly worked at McGrath and Savills.

She is excited at the opportunity, she said.

“It’s an international brand with a massive platform in the residential market having 930 offices around the world,” Ms Halpin said.

“I’m looking forward to introducing clients to the international experience that Sotheby’s International Realty offers.

“I knew the Sotheby’s brand well from England, where I’m originally from, and also in Dubai where I lived for 12 years and owned and managed my own real estate business.”

Ms Halpin added that real estate is a people business.

“I really try to connect well with clients,” the appointee said.

“It’s very much a customer service industry. And it’s especially exciting to become director and principal of the new office as I believe there are only two other women on the Gold Coast who carry this title.”

Queensland Sotheby’s International Realty CEO Paul Arthur said that Ms Halpin has some of the highest residential sales achieved on the Gold Coast to her name.

He added that he is excited to have her join the firm.

“Sotheby’s International Realty’s reach to potential international clients combined with Lisa’s honesty, integrity, absolute professionalism and her local area knowledge will provide a great deal of opportunities to buyers and sellers in the region,” Mr Arthur said.

Ms Halpin will travel to New York in March to visit the Sotheby’s International Realty Headquarters and spend time with agents in Manhattan.

Her appointment comes off the back of the opening of a new Tropical North Queensland office headed up by Barbara Wolveridge.

It adds to the stable of women already working under the Sotheby’s International Realty umbrella, including Main Beach senior sales executives Carol Carter and Mashelle Jones.
