Daniel was awarded a scholarship to The Friends School and went on to obtain a combined degree in Commerce and Law at the University of Tasmania. For eight years Daniel was employed as an inquiry agent for a private investigation firm, where he progressed quickly to Associate level in a management capacity.
It is in real estate, however, where Daniel has truly excelled. His strategic approach to the selling process is incredibly effective and he has amassed an enviable sales record. He is a 5 time winner of the company’s Top Property Consultant award (without sales support) and has consistently won the Quarterly Top Gun award since the beginning of his real estate career. In recognition of his achievements in the field and strong leadership, he was appointed Sales Manager in 2009 and has been a Director since 2011.
That said, Daniel is more proud of the feedback he receives from clients than the awards he has won or promotions within the company. The stack of positive testimonials from clients so impressed with the level of professionalism and the result achieved, perhaps speaks the loudest about the extent of Daniel’s ability. He is among a handful of the top performing real estate agents in Tasmania and is very highly valued within the Petrusma group.
Daniel’s father Ed ten Broeke has been in real estate for almost 40 years, most of which has been in business with Hank Petrusma. Daniel was groomed for the role by the leaders of the industry and experienced success very early in his career. Now as a Director Daniel continues to achieve outstanding results for his clients.
Daniel has highly developed communication and organisational skills. He is extremely motivated and believes strongly in the importance of plain hard work and dedication, as well as openness in the real estate transaction. Coupled with his bright and positive attitude, Daniel has a skill set that is incredibly well suited to the real estate environment. His clients receive superior service and Daniel knows how to achieve results.
Daniel married his teenage sweetheart Bianca, and the two were in fact born on the same day at Calvery Hospital in 1977! They now have three daughters Ella, Ebony and Mayah, and a son Charlie. Daniel and family live on a couple of acres outside the city, with four Alpacas, a dozen chooks and mischievous Labrador “Max”.
Daniel is a natural achiever and has excelled in sport and music as well as academically and professionally. He represented Tasmania in underage soccer and went on to play in the State Premier League. He enjoys all forms of water sport and during summer can be found water skiing with friends on Meadowbank Lake or jet skiing the Southern Beaches. He is a keen snowboarder and a talented drummer, for a number of years a member of popular Hobart band Morning Glory.
Daniel is now a Director and Auctioneer, selling across greater Hobart with the invaluable assistance of co-agent David McLeod, his Personal Assistant Renee Kapitzke and the entire Petrusma Property sales force.
Before calling Petrusma Property I had never met Daniel. From our first meeting he was easily a cut above other agents. He made us feel completely at ease with the whole process and was not over the top!
Daniel was very professional in all the dealings he had with us and his service and presentation was of the highest standard. The fact the house sold within a week for a greater price than we anticipated speaks for itself. I don’t think we could’ve found a better person to work for us in the sale / purchase of a property and I would not hesitate in recommending Daniel to any friends.
P & S Berne
It was always my intention to use Daniel as the sales agent for my home, but his superior level of professionalism, knowledge, honesty and the care he placed on my one little house in Lindisfarne was well beyond what I had expected.
He provided great pre-sale advice and approached the sale of my property with confidence and enthusiasm. I had every confidence in him and with good reason – he negotiated a contract on the property within only one week. An enjoyable experience and a great result. I can’t recommend him highly enough!
We recently had the absolute pleasure in having Daniel work with us to sell our former home. I cannot commend highly enough Daniel’s professionalism and his willingness to work hard for us to sell the property. Daniel’s presentation and appearance was first class and he always got back to us when he said he would, whether after hours or not. Nothing was a problem for Daniel and his willingness to be very thorough and take the time to answer all of our queries is a credit to his professionalism.
Our recent experience only reinforces our admiration for your company and particularly for Daniel. We could not have been more impressed with Daniel and there is no doubt he has very high standing in the industry and is a major asset to Petrusma Property.
