Antonio Contreras
Property Sales Consultant

I was born in Honduras, a small country in Central America and moved to California as a teenager. I grew up between sophisticated San Francisco and the melting pot of Los Angeles. I have an Accounting Degree but I learned earlier on that my career was in sales.

In the USA I worked 24 Hour Fitness the largest chain fitness of Health Clubs in the world in several roles from Personal Trainer, Fitness Consultant and to eventually become a Club Manager. In this role I managed Heath Clubs in famous Beverley Hills, Downtown LA and several cities in Northern California and a short stint amalgamating some gyms in Honolulu, Hawaii. While working in this industry I learned the value of customer service and the importance of professionalism with employees and clients.

I married an Australian and I have been living in Australia around 22 years, a proud father of 2 daughters, one attending University in Brisbane and the other graduating from High School this year. Melbourne was the first city I lived in Australia where my passion for fitness continued helping some investors to create a chain of 10 gyms and eventually headhunted to work for Fitness First.

After moving to the Gold Coast 15 years ago, I started a new career in Real Estate and I discovered it was my destiny. I have worked for 3 of the top real estate offices, received numerous awards and set sales records in some suburbs.
