How did your careers in real estate begin?
I started as a personal assistant for an agent (David Mifsud), who is currently working with us. I lasted as his assistant for six months, before the boss advised me to go into sales. I’ve always loved talking to people and looking at houses – perfect combination! Chris joined by default – he was looking for a new career after nearly twenty years in the Police Force. Joining Kerry in real estate seemed a natural progression, and it was good business sense; he was a hostage negotiator, so sales and negotiation came pretty naturally.
