Dan has been involved in the property industry all his working life. His early years were spent in the Lands Department (now the Department of Natural Resources) carrying out rental assessment valuations for Crown Land in various centres of Queensland including Rockhampton, Hughenden, Emerald, Longreach, Winton, Cloncurry and Mackay. During that time he became a Registered Rural and Urban Valuer and was promoted to the position of Assistant Land Commissioner prior to his resignation from the Government Department.
In 1984 Dan took over the management of the Valuation Department of Blacks Real Estate before setting up his own private valuation business in 2003 which operated successfully until mid 2013.
Dan and wife Kerry have lived in Mackay for over thirty years and have a son Dylan and daughter Kara. Outside of work Dan has an interest in most sports, particularly Rugby. He is a Life Member of Brothers Rugby Club and spent twelve years coaching the senior boys rugby team at North Mackay State High winning several premierships.
With a wealth of experience in the property market, Dan returned to Blacks Real Estate as a Sales Consultant in August 2013.
