Blackshaw empowers its people to become the best versions of themselves

Our managing director and principals have a deep sense of responsibility to the growth and wellbeing of our people. As an agency, we're passionate about our team. Overall, leadership that prioritises high performance and empowers personal growth can be a driving force in a successful and fulfilling work environment. It sets the tone for the organisation's culture and can lead to increased productivity, employee satisfaction, and long-term success.



Leading by example

Our Franchise Principal team are a select group of the region's best business minds, with a wealth of experience at the cutting edge of the property industry. As a close-knit team, we regularly share ideas and ensure consistency across the group. It's all for the best possible client experience—across every interaction—from any of our locations.

At Blackshaw, everyone has someone to look up to. It’s not surprising when two, three, even four decades of experience backs the advice. Or for agent recognition to reach across the region, state, and even the nation.

Strong leadership drives a secure, powerful culture of team work, professional and personal development, and equality
