  • Brian Soutar

    Brian Soutar

    Officer In Effective Control/ Business Owner

    Brian entered the Real Estate Industry from the banking sector in 1986 before recognising an opportunity to start his own company, Brian Soutar Real Estate Pty Ltd in Drouin on 29th February 1992, twenty four years ago! Running and growing such a successful small business through the ups and downs of the last 24 years has at times been a challenge, but it is also testament to his character and it is also one of Brian’s proudest personal achievements. In 2010, Brian realised the many advantages of joining the Harcourt International group, but more importantly he also saw that their objectives very much aligned with his own - * People First * Doing the Right Thing * Being Courageous * Fun and Laughter. The union with Harcourts has definitely allowed Brian’s team to offer clients the most up-to-date marketing strategies, technology and training to optimise their real estate outcomes, but at the same time, always puts the client first – something he is also very proud of. Brian doesn’t have a lot of spare time, but when he does, he loves nothing more than spend time with family, in particular with his “little friends” granddaughters Isabella, Ava and Celia. Brian also loves following his beloved Richmond Football Club attending games at the “G” whenever he can.
