Ascot Real Estate Principal
Alex Ferguson - Founder, Principal and Licensee
Commencing work in 1960 in the Banking Industry I trained in a number of positions in general banking covering saving, trading and relieving staff. A change of employment led to a large wholesaling company specialising in the supply and distribution of food and hardware items to retail outlets. From this led to positions in marketing with International Food Manufacturing and distribution companies and eventually becoming the National Marketing Manager.
A career change in 1979 saw us enter the Hotel Industry managing and running our own business. We also formed a Building Company in 1983, operating both businesses. The natural progression from there was to enter the Real Estate market.
Further enterprises have led to land and accommodation development and also the Childcare Industry. These business are still operating successfully today.
Ascot Sales Team
Having commenced my Real Estate career in 1992 in Bargara, I have seen many changes in the industry. I have always been involved with property and the development sector having been in surveying here in Bundaberg prior to Real Estate.
This continued involvement with property has given me extensive experience in all aspects of Real Estate, from development to marketing. I enjoy helping both buyers and sellers in all their real estate needs and I look forward to being of service to you in the future.
I have recently joined the Ascot Sales team, I moved to beautiful Elliott Heads 5 years ago and am excited to start my Real Estate career with Ascot.
I come with over 20 years experience in the retail industry much of this time spent in Sales. I have been in multiple management roles as well as owning my own business.
I am a supporter of the Black Dog Institute for mental awareness in men’s health and am also involved with the local surf life saving club.
