LICENSED ESTATE AGENT/AUCTIONEER

Career Profile

It would not be overstating things to declare that real estate is in Rhys Afford’s DNA. Following in the footsteps of both his parents and grandparents, Rhys spent much of his youth at weekend auctions and open inspections, becoming captured by the buzz of real estate as a result.

Rhys, a Fully Licensed Estate Agent backed by a Certificate IV in Property Services (Real Estate), brings over five years experience in Property Management, Business Development and Sales Consultancy to his Property Consultant position with Mcdonald Upton. Along with a wealth of acquired industry knowledge, Rhys possesses a natural affinity for effective negotiation and displays superior communication skills with people from all walks of life.

Enthusiastic and driven with energy to burn, Rhys aspires to eventually own and operate his own agency and is relishing the opportunity to continue growing his skill set with the expert team at McDonald Upton.

Along with a passion for travel, time off for Rhys means cruising round on his motorbike and spending precious time with his wife and their two dogs.
