Shane Willcox ranks his Santa Monica home and surrounding Westside community as one of the best places to live in the world. That’s a huge compliment coming from anyone, let alone a real estate agent who grew up in Australia and lived in London before relocating to Los Angeles to pursue a job opportunity. Shane’s international upbringing and experiences abroad have given him the ability to relate to people from all walks of life. With his attentive listening and injected humor, it’s not uncommon for Shane’s clients to feel instantly at ease, blending the lines between a trusted friend and an expert realtor.
“As an individual who settled here myself, I can easily relate to foreigners’ stories and battles of moving to the U.S. After all, being a realtor isn’t about selling homes—it’s about working with people, getting to know them and deciphering how to best accommodate their needs.”
Shane’s life-long fascination with technology and how it can improve daily life has carried over to his career as a realtor for Partners Trust in Beverly Hills. Committed to running his business in a paperless fashion, Shane offers his clients the most innovative ways of connecting, making each stage of the process flow as efficiently and effortlessly as possible. By embracing tools to help him keep track of his interactions with current and future clients, Shane’s accessibility and communication in the field is second to none.
Shane’s professional background as a cameraman/editor was the catalyst for originally moving to Los Angeles, a stretch that lasted 6 years before he returned back to Melbourne, Australia. Needless to say, the blue skies and laid back ways wooed him back to the West Coast, as did his desire to dig deeper into real estate and begin building a portfolio of investment properties.
