Kicking Goals

There’s a quiet determination bubbling away beneath the calm persona of Kollosche lead agent Josh Longhitano, whose path to success has been anything but boring.

The former elite soccer player spent four years playing professionally overseas before taking up a flight attendant role with the Middle East’s largest airline, Emirates, where he clocked up 68 countries on his passport.

“I played soccer in South America for Brazilian club Primavera and then went on to play in Finland, Italy, and Europe,” says Josh, a former The Southport School student.

“Playing at an elite level ingrains in you the discipline and drive to succeed. The standards at Emirates were also exceptionally high so I took a lot from that experience.”

Learning from the Best

Returning to the Kollosche fold is a boomerang manoeuvre for the real estate young gun, who first joined the prestige agency’s foundation team as Sales Associate to Eddie Wardale.

Josh was later invited to join the sales team of Managing Director and Selling Principal Michael Kollosche whose mentorship had a powerful effect on the burgeoning sales agent.

Michael is the kind of agent who comes along once in a generation,” says Josh. “Seeing how he follows his processes to the tee, the minimum standards he adheres to, and the way he interacts with people was incredibly valuable.”

Josh put those learnings into practice, clocking up key sales, including a record $9,400,000 for 126 and 151 Commodore Drive in Paradise Waters in collaboration with Ryan Ward. The 2019 off-market sale was the highest price paid for land in the prestigious enclave.

“I searched hard to find the right block for that buyer,” says Josh, who admits to being relentless in pursuit of results for his clients. “When we put this option to him he had already put in an offer on another property, but those plans soon changed.”

Burleigh Heads Focus

Now based permanently in Burleigh Heads, Josh draws on his passion for and knowledge of the local area to serve homeowners from The Esplanade to Burleigh Hill and beyond.

“I feel a strong connection to Burleigh and appreciate the lifestyle that this suburb offers,” says Josh. “I think that passion comes across when you’re dealing with sellers and buyers.

“I like talking to buyers and sellers to understand their journey to where they are today and work with them to kick their goals now and into the future.”
