Having left Hertford University with a BA (Hons) in Business, Simon then went on to work for News International in London for 7 years on several of their most popular National Newspapers.
In 2003, he travelled to Dubai to work for the BBC World Service and subsequently started his own contract publishing business. The company launched its own supermarket and service station titles as well as producing magazines for Gulf Air, Qatar Airways, Dubai Marine Club and several hotel publications.
Marriage and two children brought Simon firstly to Sydney, Australia in 2002. Here he continued to work in publishing before settling in Melbourne in 2009.
It was in Victoria that Simon began working in real estate. He always had an interest in property with his family in the UK being involved in the building industry. Simon worked in Docklands for a developer and then began buying land for a number of builders. He went on to sell house and land packages off the plan to property investors.
In 2012, Simon realised an opportunity to combine his experience in photography and publishing with his knowledge of the local real estate market and purchased a Top Snap franchise based in Geelong, Victoria. His honesty and commitment to his work has awarded Simon with a reputation in the region for producing high quality work combined with a diverse range of quality products for the real estate market.
As his business continues to grow, the future for Top Snap in the Geelong & Surf Coast regions looks encouraging as more and more agents, builders, developers and private clients realise the benefits from dealing with a pioneering supplier.
