Gold Coast property industry leader Dax Roep will join Ray White Special Projects Queensland in 2018 as Associate Director — Sales.
Mr Roep, who will focus on Gold Coast development site sales in his new role, was formerly a director at LandMark White and has previously worked for Herron Todd White and CBRE.
He will take up the new role on January 15, based on the Gold Coast.
“For me the move to Ray White was the only choice, given their long history and market dominance on the Gold Coast and in Brisbane — particularly the profiles of both Tony Williams and Mark Creevey within the Special Projects division, who I have had the pleasure of dealing with over many years,” Mr Roep says.
“Given my valuation experience has always been within residential projects, I was both excited and humbled to join their team and help expand their coverage and operations.
“Furthermore, [Ray White Special Projects director] Matthew Fritzsche and I have previously worked together as valuers and I believe will form an even stronger bond representing clients together in 2018.”
Ray White Special Projects executive director Mark Creevey says: “Dax’s expertise in undertaking feasibility analysis and providing consulting advice to developers on residential, mixed-use and integrated resort developments will be invaluable as our business continues to grow in 2018.”
Ray White Special Projects executive director Tony Williams says: “Dax has managed deals for development sites of all scales, residential projects, the prestige residential market and going concerns such as boarding houses and childcare centres. His knowledge and experience will benefit not only the Ray White Special Projects business, but also the wider Ray White Group network.”
With 24 years’ experience in Gold Coast property, Mr Roep will join a multi-disciplined team of professional sales, leasing and support staff. He will also bring key market insights to the Ray White Special Projects business.
“While the Chinese demand has eased, we are seeing increasing demand from Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney developers,” Mr Roep says.
“More recently, we are also seeing WA groups looking to regain momentum on the Gold Coast.”
Mr Roep entered the property industry as a residential real estate salesperson in January 1994.
He started his career in valuation in 1998 at PRP Valuers and Consultants, which became DTZ Australia (Gold Coast) Pty Ltd in 2004.
After DTZ Australia merged with CB Richard Ellis (Gold Coast), Mr Roep was appointed an Associate Director, specialising in residential development projects and the prestige residential market.
He joined the major projects team at Herron Todd White in 2010 as a Specialist Residential Valuer and was soon promoted to Associate Director of the Gold Coast office.
In April 2014, he was appointed as a Director of LandMark White (Gold Coast) Pty Ltd.
Mr Roep is also an Associate of the Australian Property Institute.
