A career in real estate was the furthest thing from Shaun Hudson-Smith's mind when he was studying for his bachelor's degree BHMS during the early 1990's. He thought that it would be a career involved with sport, and that's the path he was heading down when he established his own personal training business in Sydney in 1995.
But it was the following years spent playing sport in France that proved to be pivotal in his career aspirations. Living in France exposed him to the rich history and architecture of the region & and he fell in love with both of them; so much so that when he returned to Australia at the end of 1997, a family member suggested he continue the affair by trying his hand at real estate.
And as they say, the rest is history. The early years of the new career were spent at an agency in Gosford before he moved beachside to take up residence and work in Terrigal. It was when he joined Ray White Terrigal in 2003 that things really fell into place for Shaun. Achievements to date within Ray White International's 1,000+ businesses & 13,000+ staff, include a highest finish of 8th place International Salesperson; Ray White Elite Performer (only top 1% salespeople are recognised); No.1 Salesperson within the Ray White NSW network; these high achievements came when Shaun teamed up with his wife Kristy to become a successful husband & wife sales team.
Originally coming from Kingscliff, the Gold Coast and then spending his high school years in Cairns, he loves the beach, fishing, golf and tennis. His time in France was also responsible for cultivating a love of travel, with beautiful food and wine. Kristy moved from Manly in her early years & grew up in the Matcham/Holgate area and from the age of 16 she started a successful career in fashion retail. Having sold a popular fashion boutique in Terrigal to team with Shaun at Ray White Terrigal.
