French born, Armando, joins the McDonald Upton team with a host of experience in a range of industries behind him. Graduating with an Advanced Diploma Architectural Drawing, Advanced Diploma Building Technician and Advanced Diploma Real Estate in his native France, he worked in real estate leasing and sales for a number of years before making the decision to work overseas.
Armando made the move to Australia where his route back to real estate has been nothing short of circuitous, with visa regulations requiring him to work across industries as diverse as concreting, bricklaying, carpentry, flooring, a flower farm and dairy. Arriving in Melbourne he worked in sales before attaining his Agent Representative Certificate.
His broad ranging skill set and inherent practicality, including useful construction knowledge for identifying and quickly resolving tenant issues, makes Armando a genuine asset. Friendly and outgoing, with a great sense of humour, he is committed to delivering superior client service, and definitely brings a certain je nais se quois to McDonald Upton.
Armando’s passions are many and varied. He’s a bodybuilder, with an interest in human biomechanics and nutrition, animal and nature lover, and keen traveller. He enjoys camping, fishing, motorbike riding, the beach and catching up with friends at restaurants.
