The BOURKE Story
It is now 2021 – 35 years after the beginning
From a very humble beginning at age 16 in the beach side township of Tugun
on the Southern Gold Coast, Jamie Bourke began his real estate journey.
It was 1986 and the youngster never thought he would excel into a
career path that has seen him the very best in the industry time and time again
Having left school after only completing at age 14 to
help his parents with their thoroughbred racehorse breeding and
training centre in Currumbin Valley, there were not a lot of opportunities on offer.
Then one day at age 16, his father Jim said, “hey Jamie, do you want to
set up a real estate office and see if we can sell some houses in Tugun?”.
Naïve and eager to impress his father, Jamie jumped straight in.
At age 23, Jamie bought the largest local office, Ray White Tugun,
before heading north to Surfers Paradise four years later
where he worked as Special Projects Manager at CBRE Gold Coast.
Progressing onwards to early April 1999 Jamie acquired
the LJ Hooker Surfers Paradise and Main Beach offices.
First National Real Estate enticed Jamie to re brand
his group in 2002 where over an 18-year period we were the number one
National Office of the Year for 9 times and with
Jamie being the number one Salesperson – 11 times.
