I have been working in the sales Industry since 2007 and since that time have gained a wealth of knowledge with a large portfolio of sales achievements.

My philosophy is to always treat people the way you want to be treated. In my experience, honesty, trust and good communication are the keys to building strong relationships with my clients and I believe I have these skills to offer you first class service when it comes to designing and building your dream home.

Kim Gartrell

Born in Subiaco in 1955 into a Working Class family and raised in Mount Hawthorn where I learnt all about respect, hard work and fun. I attended Mount Hawthorn Primary School and Perth Modern Senior High School and after passing my Junior Certificate in 1970 I left school and worked with local builder RDC Constructions for 10 years where I was fortunate to work alongside some remarkable people who taught me all about the office procedures of a large project builder. After moving around from job to job over the next 10 years I finally landed on my feet when, at age 35, I scored a job with Webb & Brown-Neaves. Still here after 25 years and over 650 homes for clients, I consider myself very fortunate to have enjoyed such a wonderful journey with some fantastic people who have taught me so much at Webb & Brown-Neaves. 

Family is very important to me and my wife Jenny and I recently became grandparents (not once but twice). Welcome to Alfie and Sage and thank you to Ben & Bex and Wes & Lara for blessing us with such beautiful grandchildren. In my spare time I like to watch the footy and I support the Eagles but not fanatically. We also recently purchased a property in Dawesville which will eventually become our family holiday home but it does require a lot of work which will keep us busy. My father used to always say, “Just Get on With it” , so that’s exactly what I do.

Ben Lawrance

Since graduating design from Curtin University, I have developed 30 years of sales and consulting experience and am happily in my 18th year as a Building and Design Consultant at Webb & Brown-Neaves. I have been involved on over 200 successful projects with WB Homes helping turn clients dreams into reality.

Much of my time has also been in the areas of process and management and has allowed me to ensure clients have an enhanced building experience with Webb & Brown-Neaves. I have recently completed an Advanced Diploma of Management to further develop my consultation services.

My design, management and sales experience make my chosen career very enjoyable as it wraps the creative and financial processes together and produces a unique experience for my clients.

Andrew McLoughlin

I've worked for 20 years in casinos in Australia. My roles ranged from working on the gaming tables through to the project management of the construction of the Star City complex in Sydney. My time in casinos has seen me achieve an extremely high level of customer service training. 

After relocating back to Perth, I owned and operated a coffee shop for several years before selling on and moving into the new homes industry. I feel that I have found my true calling in the new homes industry. I achieve some of the highest customer ratings from my clients. My clients have been extremely happy with everything from my technical expertise through to my easy to work with approach. 

Bruce Spencer

I teamed up with Webb & Brown-Neaves after more than 22 years of residential real estate sales in the Perth metropolitan area. My experience in Perth’s residential market, land subdivisions, spec development and retirement living means I can genuinely understand, methodically assess and professionally communicate how to maximise property values and equity whilst ensuring optimum saleability. 

During this time, my perspective of Perth’s many different building companies galvanised. I chose Webb & Brown-Neaves to team up with because it was the one building company uniquely positioned to deliver for clients a popularly recognised, highly reputable, premium brand that generates a higher resale value along with the cost benefit of economies of scale that comes with being a foundation company of the Alcock Family of Companies, one of the largest residential home builders in Australia. This formula delivers to my clients greater equity or profit sooner with less risk, a home they are proud to own and a company they are proud to be associated with.

I genuinely care about my clients, listening, educating and working collaboratively to achieve their goals and dreams. My success through a no pressure, helpful, relationship for the long term attitude is a welcome change in this all too often fast paced world. I offer a meaningful, experienced opinion that clients can confidently make decisions upon.

Upon request, I will research your block, formulate recommendations to deliver your desired, achievable lifestyle and equity goals and provide an easy to comprehend written report that will put everything into perspective as well as a solid base upon which to move forwards. 

Married with 3 children, living a lifetime in the Perth metropolitan area having grown up in cosmopolitan Fremantle, I love the Perth beach and Swan River lifestyle. Yachting competitively and twilight cruising, playing golf and following AFL are my escapes. Helping clients with their new home and property questions is my passion.

Tim Varga

After many renovations to the family home when I was young, I soon knew that the building industry was for me. On completing my Diploma of Builders Registration in 1998 I have worked in the construction industry for 21+ years!  

During this time I have gained much experience by working in prestart/client liaison roles, quantity scheduling, building supervisor and running my own construction company. Over the past four years I have assisted many customers with making the exciting decision to build their home.  

My Registered Builder qualification and enthusiasm for building allows me to reduce my customer’s anxiety and provide comfort with building their home.
