The Real State of Real Estate.

Is it up? Is it down? Is it about to burst, or is it about to boom? Join the first BrisWest event for 2020 and find out along with all of us as we dive into the market indicators and stats behind it all whilst hearing first hand what properties are getting interest and which ones aren’t and how that flows onto your business.

Led by Ambassador of BrisWest, Leo Di Pinto, we will hear from PRD Nationwide’s economist Dr. Diaswati, whilst enjoying the brilliant surrounds of Toowong Rowing Club.

As always there will be copious amounts of quality networking and mingling plus we will introduce you to our new Committee & Ambassadors for 2020 along with some exciting plans and partnerships for the year ahead. So if it’s, ‘New Year, New Me’ or seeing your BrisWest crew, we can’t wait to see you along!

Your host for the evening: Leo Di Pinto

I’m excited to be forging a career in the Real Estate industry. I grew up in Italy and am relatively new to Australia however it didn’t take me long to recognise that real estate is an integral part of every Australian’s life. It’s a topic that everyone discusses whether it’s talking about their first home, their first investment or commercial opportunities. The fact that I’m in real estate is a real conversation starter and I seize every opportunity to discuss the topic I’m so enthusiastic about.

Working in the industry allows me to play to my strengths. I’m a people person and every moment of my day is spent talking, listening and meeting people. I’m excellent at solving problems and I’m continually finding solutions for clients. This is particularly the case in the commercial property area where it’s essential to understand what’s required at every stage of a project from approval right through to development. I’m also an expert in zoning laws, project management and identifying and utilising sources needed to navigate the complex process.

I have a head for business and excellent organisational skills, both beneficial in my role. I’ve studied economics and business and am committed to maintaining a hands-on interest in these disciplines. My organisational skills come from a background in organising sporting and cultural events.

There’s an advantage in being relatively new to Brisbane. I have a thirst for getting to know my adopted city and its people. I see opportunities everywhere, from New Farm to Moorooka and Robina to Wynnum. I’m proactive about meeting new people and building networks. I also enjoy staying connected to my Italian heritage and am an active member of Brisbane’s Italian community.
