Matthew Skene has ventured out on his own, kicking off Skene & Co in the popular northern NSW holiday haven.  

With real estate experience garnered both in Sydney and in the booming Byron region, Mr Skene said he is “excited to be able to work for my vendors under the Skene & Co brand”.

“The brand is a representation of me and as the owner of the business, I will always go over and above for my clients and put in the extra work,” he commented.

Excited by his brand’s launch, which will see the agent focus on the region’s prestige market, Mr Skene said, “going out on my own was always something that I wanted to do, but I have ended up making the decision to do it sooner than I expected”.

Flagging commission structure as a reason, he said: “I am excited to launch Skene & Co and to be able to make my own decisions and do what is best for my clients.”

With the new outfit powered by UrbanX, Mr Skene has shared that he “loved the concept and the innovation they were providing to the industry”.

“They are completely disrupting the real estate model and I wanted to be a part of it,” he said.

As for his intentions under the Skene & Co banner, the business owner said: “With the support from the UrbanX team, I will be able to spend more time with my clients to ensure they have a stress-free experience.

“I love meeting new people from all walks of life and find the challenge of matching buyers with sellers an exciting part of the journey.”
