About Jacob Butler
Jacob Butler is a buyers’ agent and the founder of premium agency Hunter Gather. With a proven track record in the real estate industry, he worked in both sales and buyers’ advocacy for leading agencies including Ray White and Cohen Handler before starting his own business in 2020.
Jacob’s passion for property began at a young age, when he developed a keen interest in the market and its trends. He spent two years working in Papua New Guinea managing a residential facility in Port Moresby, before returning to Brisbane and entering the real estate industry as a sales agent. Developing his skills in this area, Jacob then moved into buyers’ advocacy, taking the knowledge he had gleaned from sales roles. His experience in both sales and advocacy offers a unique, holistic view of the industry that few others have, giving him an edge in the crowded market and allowing him to get into the mindset of the vendor.
Jacob’s work philosophy is based on a foundation of trust and rapport with his clients, with strong personal and business relationships driving the core of what he does. His customer-first approach prioritises service and a bespoke plan for each client, rather than a one-size-fits-all methodology. Jacob’s deep knowledge of Brisbane’s real estate offerings, down to street level, gives clients the best chance of success in achieving their real estate goals.
Outside of work, Jacob is a father of two and enjoys spending time with his family, as well as working on his own property development plans.
