Kim Gartrell

Just like the Webb & Brown-Neaves homes I help bring to life, I’m in it for the long haul. It’s been a long and rewarding journey for over 27 years, and I’ve never loved turning up to work each day more than I do right now. A lot has changed for me personally over that time (I’m now a proud pop to two beautiful grandchildren, Alfie and Sage, with another one on the way). Yet what’s never wavered is my passion for helping build happy lives. I’d love the opportunity to sit down with you and chat about your design and building vision.

Ben Lawrance

Since graduating from Curtin University I have developed over 3 decades of sales and consulting experience, with a recently completed Advanced Diploma of Management further enhancing my skillset. Now in my eighteenth year as a Building and Design Consultant at Webb & Brown-Neaves, I’ve played a hand in turning hundreds of dreams into realities. With much of my time also spent honing my process and management abilities, I know how to deliver the pinnacle of building experiences – smooth, stress-free and memorable for all the right reasons.  Not everyone can say they love their job, but I can – it perfectly wraps building’s creative and financial processes together. And helping clients get to their dream home destination is my daily morning motivation.

Tim Varga

Looking back, I knew that the building industry was for me right back when I was young, experiencing the excitement of renovation first-hand on our family home.  Fast-forward to 1998 and I had just completed my Diploma of Builders Registration, kick-starting over 2 decades in the construction industry. I’ve loved every minute of it, soaking up vast experience working in roles from prestart-client liaison to quantity scheduling and building supervising, as well as running my own construction company.  Since 2013 I have enjoyed the privilege of guiding countless customers in making the exciting (yet at times daunting) decision to build their dream home. Rest assured that with my Registered Builder qualification and contagious enthusiasm for building, I’ll help ease any anxieties and let you savour what is poised to be one of life’s rare and rewarding journeys.

Rod Druce

I've had 30 fantastic years in the building industry and I’ve loved every minute of it. Over this time I’ve seen the evolution of new trends in materials, design and décor. What I see today is exciting – never before have new homes been more enjoyable to live and entertain in.  As a husband and father of two who loves cycling with my mates, I know we all lead different lives. I take great pride and enjoyment in taking the time to understand your needs, wants and dreams from the moment we meet. Together with the talented team at Webb & Brown-Neaves, I can bring your special new home to life before your eyes.

Christian Widjaja

I’ve spent the last two decades providing luxury service tailored to individual client needs around the world, from Sydney to Taiwan, California and New York. These rare travelling experiences encountering new people and cultures has culminated in a unique appreciation of individuality. Today, I’m back where I grew up in beautiful Perth, ready to partner with you through your entire homebuilding experience. I understand the lure of living here and promise to leave no stone unturned at every step to ensure your home is a reflection of your style and story. Whether bouncing around ideas or simply making myself available to talk, with my infectious enthusiasm and the support of the talented Webb & Brown-Neaves team, together we can create something special.

Lee Heinke

I’ve lived and breathed the Perth building industry for over a decade, working exclusively for local builders as well as running my own company as a Registered Builder. Along my journey I’ve enjoyed the privilege of receiving the complete building education, from hands-on site experience through to site supervision and project management, learning from true master craftsmen and some of the city’s premier construction companies and consultants. Today, I bring my far-reaching skillset to Webb & Brown-Neaves with a genuine understanding of what it takes to craft Perth’s finest lifestyles. I look forward to guiding you through the exciting design and construction process to ensure your journey is memorable for all the right reasons.

Talbot Le Page

I was fortunate enough to realise my passion for home design and building at an early age, enabling me to launch my career as soon as I finished my construction studies at university. My journey so far has included becoming a registered builder by my mid 20’s and winning multiple design and building awards in my own right. Some of my proudest moments have included being featured by Houzz and the Wall Street Journal in New York for my work as an Australian designer. Becoming a father was a pretty proud moment too! All of these experiences have culminated in my appointment as Building Consultant at Webb & Brown-Neaves, where I get to  bring truly big picture thinking and insights to my clients on a daily basis to help make their journey a lot more knowledgeable and enjoyable.
