Damian Slade started his career in Real Estate like many others, not really looking for it but very grateful it happened. A born and bred South Australian who moved with family to Alice Springs and after several years backpacking his way through the UK and Europe settled on the Sunshine Coast. As a fully qualified electrician and previous owner of other businesses he was always looking for the right opportunities. The offer to start a career in Real Estate came in June 1994 and after 4 months without a sale the nerves were starting to grow, in month 5 however Damian Sold 11 properties and the rest is history, just the self-belief alone has kept him focused and motivated to continue what he loves.
At the beginning of 2002 another opportunity became available to start an independent Real Estate office at Kawana Waters which he jointly ran until 2004 when he made the change to become a Ray White Franchisee. Twelve months on and office number 2 at Wurtulla was created along with more staff and a larger responsibility. In 2008 an offer to purchase both his Ray White offices from local buyers was too good to refuse and the opportunity again to rethink the future and spend some quality family time together. Damian continued working locally as a contractor until in October 2009 the urge to get back involved boots and all became too great and Slade Property was started.
Teaming up with previous employee's and great mutual respect made the decision easier and with very similar vision for the business and its growth, the only way is Up and Onwards. A career built on hard work, consistency, honesty, integrity and a love for the industry is something that Damian holds very close to his Heart, it's never been a Job, it's been and always will be part of his life.
