We’re passionate about real estate

With coming up to 30 years in the real estate industry Kardinia Property principle Jackson Wilson understands that the stakes of dealing with Real Estate are huge (both financial and emotional) on both sides. Sellers need a skillful negotiator to work on their behalf to look after their interests, and buyers must be assured of a fair process. Jackson has learnt that big egos are best left behind and that common sense, courtesy and a focus on ethics are rare yet sought after commodities by both seller and buyer.

Our focus on continual best practice training ensures that our team are well versed in modern real estate practices, whilst retaining the personal touch. We feel that continually striving to improve, often means layering cutting edge processes over old school service. This can and does translate into fantastic outcomes for our clients.

Many agents have very little understanding of how to negotiate the best outcome for their sellers. Our Quadrant Strategy forms a solid base for our team to achieve the highest possible price for your property. The Quadrant Strategy is inclusive of 4 key negotiation elements when working with the buyer.

This negotiation initiative highlights the important implementation of a specific negotiation strategy in order to achieve the highest price for your property. We believe that our staff need to be highly trained and skilled in this area to achieve the highest price outcomes for our sellers.

Brian Vriends


A country South Australian boy at heart Brian’s family were farmers then ran a local store. In his twenties he had the good fortune to move across the country where he graduated from Sydney Drama School.  A very colourful career working in the entertainment industry followed.

In 2001 he moved to Geelong with family, and it’s been home ever since.  Brian’s sales career kicked off during this time and he worked in a number of local businesses including a stint in management.  Not one to sit still he continued in work in the drama arena through teaching and directing.

Previously working alongside our Director Jackson Wilson in Real Estate becoming part of the Kardinia Property team is like coming home. The commitment to ethical sales practices along with putting his client’s needs first gloves in perfectly with Brians dedication to learning, this invariably leads to fantastic outcomes for his customers.
