One former Australian rules footballer turned high-calibre auctioneer is set to join the ranks of a rising Victorian network in a bid to take his real estate career to the next level.

John Rombotis, who commenced his real estate career in 2000, will be joining the Buxton Bentleigh office.

Mr Rombotis will bring with him an expansive network of clients that span Victoria.

Buxton CEO Nathan Jones said that Mr Rombotis is well known in the local real estate fraternity.

“We’re very excited to have John on board,” the CEO said.

“After six months of discussions, the fit with our Bentleigh office is perfect from a cultural perspective as well as providing a central hub for John’s consistently expanding business.”

A former footy player for Fitzroy, Port Adelaide and Richmond in the ’90s, Mr Rombotis founded his own boutique agency Rombotis Real Estate in 2015.

Buxton Bentleigh director Craig Williamson said that Mr Rombotis’ “state-wide coverage” will have an immediate benefit for the entire Buxton network overnight.

“John has an incredibly large network of high-profile vendors and buyers, and by joining Buxton, John now also has the benefit of a 22-office network and the database of active buyers that goes with that.

“Buxton is known for having dominate market share within its core areas and is considered a powerhouse in respect to its peers.”

He said that Mr Rombotis has chosen wisely.

“John could have gone to any boutique or large agency network or simply stayed put, but we’re thrilled that he’s chosen Buxton as the catalyst to expand his offering to his clients,” Mr Williamson said.
