Trevor Leach

Principal

Hi, I'm Trevor.
I have lived and breathed Real Estate for the past 37 years.
I like to lead, motivate and inspire my team. I enjoy seeing everyone in the office with positive attitudes and working hard at their careers. I appreciate my employees greatly. I am optimistic by nature and most days can see this flowing through to the team. The culture I encourage is to have broad communication between each other as well as more transparency within each area. I enjoy going to work every day. As a property investor myself I understand the needs of my clients. I know it is all about peace of mind for them. My clients benefit from my experience as well as from my calmness around the whole investor process.
A sneak peak at me after work would be finding me doing communal work for various institutions and on the weekends hanging in my hammock reading a book.
