He started his career with ResortBrokers just weeks before the start of pandemic border closures and lockdowns in March 2020, and Jeff Keast showed his ability and tenacity by completing some major deals during one of the most chaotic business periods in history.
Despite the pandemic, Jeff did as he promised and worked hard for his clients to successfully broker the sales of Zest at Kelvin Grove, Savoir Faire at Milton and the off the plan management rights to Evoke & Motif. Within a short timeframe, he has established himself as one of the most trusted and respected management rights specialists in Brisbane and this is purely down to his hard work in building long term relationships with both buyers and management rights operators.
Cold hard results tell the story – in just over a year, Jeff has 16 properties either sold or under contract with a total value of more than $20 million. His superior negotiating skills and determination to help all parties in a deal are the key attributes which has led to his business success.
“What I enjoy about my job is helping people find a great business. Often they are first timers entering the industry and buying a business as well as a lifestyle. It’s also very rewarding to sell a business for someone who’s approaching retirement, and at times I’ve found myself to be emotionally invested in achieving a great result for both the vendor and the buyer.
“As these transactions take the best part of five to six months, I work very closely with both parties. I think the key to becoming a great broker is to realise the importance of having great relationships with buyers and sellers and be very patient throughout the process to get the sale all the way through to settlement.”
Away from work and Jeff is a keen mountain biker and most weekends he and his wife Kathy and two kids, Sophie and Levi, take the bikes out for a family ride.
