Scott’s decision to enter the world of real estate started when he was just 18 years old. In 1982 he chose his first mentor, but was declined a sales position on the grounds that he was “too young”. Persistence proved effective, however, and after acquiring his real estate license from Prahran College of TAFE he regularly contacted the very same agency until he finally secured the job at 21 years of age. Scott bought the office in which his career had begun at age 24, and has continued to be a leader in real estate ever since.
With more than 30 years in the industry, Scott is just as passionate today as when he first began; always striving to help his clients achieve their property goals. Working from the Toorak office today, he predominately spends his time with established inner city property, lifestyle homes, development sites and project marketing boutique developments.
Scott’s philosophy is always to put the customer first and be a trusted advisor and friend in the business. He has many established clients who have remained loyal to him over the years and have also become great advocates. The unique brand of Scott Banks Real Estate is the brainchild of Scott’s outside-the-box thinking, which is not influenced by traditional outdated practices that aren’t his clients best interests.
His vision for the real estate industry is an industry that is respected and admired for its ethics, integrity, transparency, and congruency; an industry that offers genuine professional advice based on what’s best for clients in all circumstances, rather than generic real estate solutions. More specifically, his vision for Scott Banks Real Estate Group is a bespoke service that exceeds consumer expectations on all levels and is one of the most respected and admired businesses on the planet.
When he's not at the office he enjoys time with Gina, their two sons Zachary and Mitchell, and daughter Zara.
