When Simon Finlayson was offered a spot as a rookie agent fresh out of high school back in early 2004, little did he know the real estate industry would become part of his DNA.

A meteoric rise through the ranks sees Simon now in the Sales Manager role at Ray White Southport.

While Simon thrives on being highly knowledgeable on the many niche markets of the Gold Coast and Hinterland, with a diverse portfolio of past sales including landmark developments, multi-million dollar properties and modest homes, his true calling is in team leadership – a role in which he excels.

Having been mentored by many of the great names in real estate and earning his place within the upper echelon of industry sales professionals, with Simon’s guidance his team is equipped with an elevated level of insight both on the process of maximising vendor’s sold prices as well as an unparalleled commitment to the golden standard of service.

Simon works closely and honestly with his team and understands each is on their own journey with unique strengths and aspirations. His objective is to provide a supportive culture where each staff member is given the right mentoring at the right time to achieve their specific goals.

Simon's communication with us about the property and potential buyers was excellent. He also assisted us with advice when decisions had to be made about the property and was always punctual.


Simon was absolutely perfect and removed all my worries and achieved the price I was after. He dresses well and is the most professional real estate agent I've met to date !! I would not hesitate in recommending him to anyone who's considering selling their home. Thanks again Simon.
