Brendan Whipps

Group Director

Brendan has a deep passion for developing people and to always have a significant impact on their success. Working on the philosophy of ‘first who and then what’ he believes that getting the right people in the right environment gets the job done – ‘I’m responsible for the right people and right environment piece’. With a vision to dominate the Brisbane Real Estate market, his role is to identify talent that is aligned with our values and welcome them into Harcourts Solutions.

A highly experienced leader in the real estate and franchising industries, Brendan previously held the role of Harcourts Queensland CEO, was the Head of Real Estate for a 300-plus franchise and company-owned business across Australia with a turnover exceeding $5bn. A Melbourne Business School graduate completing his Senior Executive MBA in 2013 adds another layer to his real estate career spanning more than 25 years.

Success to Brendan is about having choices and outside Harcourts, he loves spending time with his twin girls Sienna and Scarlett and wife Michelle. An active family with always having something on from swimming, gymnastics, netball, hockey, little athletics and more. They love getting away in their caravan, surfing at Byron or going bush and completely off the grid. Brendan travelled solo around Australia in a 4WD and camper trailer in early 2000, he loved it so much he took the family on a 12-month journey around Australia before the girls started school in 2014. He’s also a keen cyclist often found with Business Partners, Martin and Etienne at a local coffee shop enjoying breakfast after a ride.
