Cranbourne agent is selling ’em like hot cakes

By Eleanor Hopkins

REAL estate agents rank just above journalists, car salesmen and politicians in the list of trusted professionals, but Cranbourne agent Matt Dewan is one of the exceptions.

Many of his clients have known him since he was a boy and, when it’s time to sell, they naturally call on him.

Last year, Mr Dewan sold 102 properties in the area, earning $1,065,000 in commission for the Cranbourne office of Ray White, Australia’s biggest agency.

At the company’s Victorian and Tasmanian awards this month, Mr Dewan was recognised as its top residential agent out of some 10,000 agents working from more than 1000 offices in Australia and overseas.

Asked how he outperformed agents in posher and much more expensive suburbs, Mr Dewan shrugged. “It’s just hard work, dedication and being friendly,” he says.

A former truck driver, he got into real estate four years ago when he walked into Ray White Cranbourne and persuaded director Mark Guthrie to give him a go.

“I’d bought and sold property and I was always reading the property section in the papers. I thought I might as well do something I liked.”

He grew up in the area and still lives on a small rural property in Carrum Downs. He says that gives him an advantage – “I know a lot of the people and I like them”.

Cranbourne South vendor Bob Smith said Mr Dewan – a family friend – took just four weeks to sell his greyhound property, pictured above.
