New Stroud Homes Toowoomba Sales Assistant – Fraser Hess
With extensive sales experience and a real passion for the real estate industry, born and bred local Fraser Hess is Stroud Homes Toowoomba’s newest addition to the team.
“I really enjoy talking with people and understanding their wants and needs, and finding ways to help achieve this,” says Fraser when asked what he’ll bring to the team.
We have a chat to Fraser to get to know him better..
I grew up on a dairy farm near the Bunya Mountains about 100kms North-West of Toowoomba, so I have a real love for the land and hope to one day own my own farm.
I also went to boarding school here in Toowoomba before moving to Brisbane for University to study Business Management.
Before joining Stroud Homes in Toowoomba, I lived in Brisbane for ten years, and graduated from the University of Queensland with a Business Management degree.
I’ve worked predominantly for professional sports teams, with both the Brisbane Broncos and Brisbane Bullets in a commercial sales role.
I really enjoyed working in the sporting industry and the perks that came with the job – sitting court-side at a Bullets game was a real highlight!
I’ve always been interested in real estate but didn’t really know how to get a foot in the door. My wife and I have been wanting to move back to Toowoomba to start a family so when I saw this opportunity I jumped at it!
I thought with my sales experience and passion for the real estate industry I’d do well. I knew Stroud Homes had a reputation for being a quality builder and that this was a product that I could really stand behind.
I think the most important thing is to choose a builder that suits your needs and has the flexibility to work with you.
If you’re building your first home and getting into the market, then sticking to a budget is probably high on your list. However, if you’re looking at building your forever home, then I think quality would become the most important factor.
I also think speaking to as many people as possible helps to get a better idea of the build process and the steps involved.
I really like the openness of the kitchen/living areas and that the master suite has its own wing. I also like the grandness of the driveway/garage when you drive up.
I really enjoy playing sports and travelling when I get the chance. I also have a real love for American Sports, mainly NBA and NFL. So, most of my weekends are taken up with sport.
When I’m not doing that, I really love just chilling at home with my wife, Lauren, and doing a bit of gardening, watch Netflix or playing with our cat – Millhouse!
