SALAMANDER resident Dane Queenan, has been named one of Australia’s leading real estate agents in a national list of top performing agents.
Dane Queenan of PRD Nationwide Port Stephens, recently secured a position in the Real Estate Business Top 100 Agents 2017 ranking.
Dane has received numerous prestigious awards during his real estate career with PRD Nationwide and last year was acknowledged as the Number 1 Salesperson for 2016 from the franchise network across Australia.
“The real estate industry is highly competitive and constantly changing and to rise to the top of our industry requires hard work, extensive knowledge of the property market and the ability to adapt to new technology,” PRD Nationwide Chairman and Managing Director, Tony Brasier said.
When asked what was the secret to his success, Dane told News Of The Area, “I am passionate and driven and I work hard.”
“I am not better than anyone else, but I work harder than anyone else,” Mr Queenan, who sold three times more property than his closest competitor said.
Dane spent his early years growing up in Mallabula and now lives in Salamander Bay with his wife, Carla and their two daughters, Cooper and Cruz, with a new addition to the family due in October.
In Dane’s previous life he was a professional NRL player, playing for the Parramatta Eels, moving to Parramatta at the age of 16.
Over the next four years of his football career, Dane also worked for PRD Parramatta.
During a game, Dane snapped his cruciate ligament which saw an end to his football career.
On returning to the Bay, it was a natural progression due to Dane’s loyalty, that he gained employment at PRD Nationwide Shoal Bay.
