‘Family man’ and top-performing agent Evan Williams to join Ray White TRG
Eastern suburbs agent Evan Williams has followed his former colleague, Gavin Rubinstein, to his new venture, starting today as Associate Director at Ray White TRG, The Rubinstein Group.
Mr Williams, who left Ray White Double Bay a month ago, told the Wentworth Courier: “It was Gavin who introduced me to Ray White Double Bay initially.
“I’m looking forward to being the ‘family man’ in the most progressive real estate outfit in the country.”

Mr Williams is married to Kashaya, a wedding planner, and they have three sons, James, 14, Aston, 9, and Jasper, 5.
Mr Rubinstein is the No. 1 Ray White agent nationally, who left Ray White Double Bay after more than a decade in May and opened Ray White TRG in Queen St Woollahra on June 1.
The 35-year-old Mr Williams, who studied at the Conservatorium of Music for three years to become an opera singer, is coming into his eighth year with the Ray White Group.
The family has been longstanding residents in the eastern suburbs, with Kashaya recently opening a florist called Kashaya & Co in Gurner St, Paddington.

The rest of the team is Cae Thomas, Oliver Lavers and Bradley Plos, operations manager Jerome Srot and executive assistant Remi Quinlivan.
Among Mr Williams’s real estate achievements is being part of the team that sold the Edgecliff Art Deco block ‘Eynesbury’ for the national auction record price of $33.25 million in 2017.

He also sold the Vaucluse Keeper’s Cottage at Macquarie Lighthouse for $7.5 million in 2016 to a conglomerate called the Nanshan Group, which is one of Virgin Australia’s majority shareholders.
It’s now back on the market with a price guide of $8 million to $8.5 million with another agent.

Mr Williams coaches the under sixes at the Eastern Suburbs Rugby Union Club.
He comes from a very creative family. His father was an opera singer as well as being a solicitor.
Brother Kip Williams became the youngest artistic director in the Sydney Theatre Company’s history when he was appointed four years ago at the age of 29.
His sister, Clemence Williams, is a sound designer and composer and a frequent at the Sydney Theatre Company.
But Mr Williams isn’t sorry he didn’t pursue his opera singing career.
“I had to decide whether or not I want to sing for my supper or use some of my performance skills in real estate,” he said.
