JD Davies
JD Davies Sales & Leasing M. 0455 533 211 Email

Sometimes you need an agent with some spark to tackle your commercial needs.

Sorry about the puns, however JD left school for an electrical apprenticeship, while at the same time he was playing premier grade for the Redcliffe Dolphins – sparking the interest of the Brisbane Broncos along the way. His passion for sales and real estate quickly took over. JD commenced in front line sales for a marketing company learning that sales are all unique and understanding the client’s desired outcome is key.

In a chance meeting with Adam one night he convinced Adam that he was worth a shot.

JD has trained under Grant in sales and leasing and is a registered sales person, as a second rower he is key to this team and ready to lead the charge.

Anna Grant
Anna Grant Administration / Asset Management P. 1300 477 180 Email

Anna has spent more time in the Real Estate industry than anyone else here. With a career that has placed her in both Residential and then onto Commercial for the last decade, Anna has performed most, if not all roles in an agency.

This makes Anna the perfect ‘All Rounder’ that she is and the areas she covers here at TCG can not be all listed.

Its fair to say boardly that Anna looks after administration across the board including Sales, Leasing, Asset Management, Company admin and keeping Grant and Adam organised.

Anna likes weird things, like woodchopping. It’s inexplicable to us and we just don’t understand it.
