How did Gavin Rubinstein become successful?
Gavin Rubinstein came from humble beginnings, starting his working career at McDonald’s, which he credits for helping him learn what customer service is all about, he said in an interview with Elite Agent.
His interest in real estate came from the potential he saw to make money without tertiary education.
His recipe for success came through hard work and a tedious daily schedule which includes a 4:45am wake up, 5:30 am gym session, and working until at least 8 pm every night.
Although like everybody he needs a break sometimes, saying to Elite Agent that he finds his work-life balance…
“…By taking four breaks throughout the year, during school holidays as this is when there’s a downturn in my markets cycle.”Gavin Rubinstein
Gavin Rubinstein Height
If he’s not known for his ability to close monstrous property deals, Gavin Rubinstein is known for his height, or rather, lack of it. Unofficially dubbed Sydney’s pint-sized property Prince, Gavin Rubinstein is reportedly 5ft 4in tall. This isn’t confirmed, however, as Gavin rarely speaks about it height. But, in an interview with the Sydney Morning Herald, Gavin says this:
“I’m 5′1, maybe 5′2 if I wear boots.”Gavin Rubinstein
Outside of real estate, Gavin Rubinstein doesn’t reveal much about his personal life, although, in the same Sydney Morning Herald interview, he does admit to “committing to someone.” He doesn’t reveal his partner’s identity, but he admits he isn’t thinking about marriage or kids until he has “hit certain milestones.”
Gavin Rubinstein Instagram
Gavin Rubinstein can likely attribute some of his success to Instagram. He has previously chosen to use the social media platform as a medium to help advertise properties and, while his personal Instagram feed is relatively thin on content, he uses The Rubinstein Group’s page to effectively advertise properties the group is currently selling, usually in the form of a video.
His most recent post is captioned “Real Estate Diaries,” and features Gavin being followed by a documentary crew while he shows off some of the current properties he’s selling.
What watch does Gavin Rubinstein wear?
Being a multi-millionaire with an image and reputation to uphold, it should come as no surprise to learn that Gavin Rubinstein has himself a rather tasty timepiece on his wrist at all times. Gavin wears a Patek Philippe Nautilus (ref. 5711-R). Patek Philippe has since discontinued the watch, and Gavin revealed to the SMH that he paid $70,000 for it.
Not a bad investment, as the same watch is now fetching anything from $250,000 to $500,000 on global watch marketplace Chrono24.
