Headhunted by Stockdale & Leggo Directors in 1981, after being spotted for his outstanding sales skills in another agency, Neil Butler joined the team shortly after. He utilised his sharp business acumen and industry know-how to quickly establish himself as a top performer. He became the Top Salesperson in the Stockdale & Leggo network for six consecutive years. Recognising the potential within the franchise model, Neil purchased the Stockdale & Leggo Dandenong office in 1987, rapidly turning it into one of the highest-performing offices in the state.
‘The bottom line is that we’re paid to get results for our clients, who come from all walks of life. We don’t get paid if we don’t get the results! I was taught early to grab opportunities to make things happen and that’s what the team does here on a daily basis.’
Also an expert auctioneer and sharp negotiator, Neil is the driving force behind 90% of the Dandenong office’s auction clearance rate, enjoying a hands-on role in the widely reputed office. He oversees and is actively involved in, both the Sales and Property Management departments, ensuring that consistently high standards and results are achieved on a daily basis. Neil’s driven and results-focused approach is highly appreciated by his clients, who often demonstrate their delight by referring family and friends.
‘Staying in touch with vendors, buyers, and our investors is rewarding. Auctioning a property for a higher-than-expected price and getting a big bear hug from a relieved vendor feels pretty good! Knowing the region inside out, Neil possesses an excellent understanding and rapport with the area’s multicultural community. He has successfully negotiated the sale of all types of properties in varying market conditions.
Based upon client feedback and a public vote, Neil has been awarded the ‘Top Real Estate Agent’ in the region by Leader Newspapers.
When not busy in the office, Neil enjoys spending quality time with family and friends.
