Shane Willcox ranks his Santa Monica home and surrounding Westside community as one of the best places to live in the world. That’s a huge compliment coming from anyone, let alone a real estate agent who grew up in Australia and lived in London before relocating to Los Angeles to pursue a job opportunity. Representing clients across Santa Monica and the greater Westside, he is proud to bring his winning combination of professionalism, humor, and authenticity to The Agency.
Shane’s international upbringing and experience abroad have given him the innate ability to relate to individuals from all walks of life. With his attentive listening and injected humor, it’s not uncommon for Shane’s clients to feel instantly at ease, and for his role to blur the lines between trusted friend and expert realtor. As an individual who settled in Los Angeles himself, Shane can easily relate to foreigners’ stories of moving to the U.S. After all, being a realtor isn’t just about selling homes—it’s about working with people, getting to know them and deciphering how best to accommodate their needs. Shane’s lifelong fascination with technology and the ways in which it can improve daily life has carried over to his career in real estate. Committed to running his business in a paperless fashion, Shane offers his clients the most innovative ways of connecting, making each stage of the process flow as efficiently and effortlessly as possible. By embracing tools to help him keep track of his interactions with current and future clients, Shane’s accessibility and communication in the field are second to none.
Shane’s professional background as a cameraman and editor was the catalyst for his move to Los Angeles, a stretch that lasted six years before he returned to Melbourne. Needless to say, the blue skies and laidback ways wooed him back to the West Coast, as did his desire to dig deeper into real estate and begin building a portfolio of investment properties. In his time outside of real estate, Shane enjoys exercising regularly, including lifting weights, boxing and sparring.
