Homely expands management team with portal and industry expert Rob Trovato
Trovato appointed as NSW Sales Manager for Homely.com.au
25th August 2014- Homely.com.au the revolutionary new real estate website combining Australia’s most beautiful search experience with free property listings, has expanded its management team with key executive Rob Trovato. Trovato has been added to continue growing product sales and listings across NSW.
The announcement of Trovato’s addition comes at a time as Homely continues to push towards 100% listing coverage Australia wide. CEO Jason Spencer was delighted in welcoming Trovato, mentioning that his past experience was something that really made him stand out as a candidate.
“Rob has a wealth of experience in both the online space and the inside workings of a real estate office. The combination of these two areas is exactly what drew us to him. Rob is very up to date on the current portal issues being faced, and his connections will strongly help us grow the Homely brand” mentioned Spencer.
Trovato’s background includes time working with real estate portal www.realestate.com.au as well as with Fairfax digital. In both roles, Trovato has had strong success in growing these brands from their commencement to where they are today.
Added to this, Trovato’s experience extends across the auction landscape, where he keeps up to date with market movements through his involvement as a director of Auction Services. He currently works there with Homely National Sales Director, Rocky Bartolotto.
Bartolotto expressed great enthusiasm with the addition of Trovato, saying that “The acquisition of Rob's skill set, business relationships and knowledge is a great asset for Homely. Having worked with Rob in current roles, I have seen first hand his deep experience as a hard working real estate agent and his understanding of the troubles faced by consumer portals. Rob has worked hard in establishing relationships with leading Australian offices over a 15 year time frame and will help convey to agents the benefits in being affiliated with Homely.”
Trovato mentioned that the opportunity to join Homely was an opportunity too good to refuse. “After spending time in both the online and auction space, the opportunity to join Homely was something I couldn’t miss. Homely’s presence, aimed at making real estate more engaging for consumers, whilst also providing an abundance of tools not yet seen in Australia for agents is exciting. I have gone through the pain points that agents experience every day, and by doing so, I look forward in presenting solutions.”
