Philip Chillemi

Principal, Stone Asset Management

Phil Chillemi began his real estate career in 2012, quickly becoming one of the leading agents in the Northern Gold Coast prestige housing market. 

Working in what was one of the hardest hit markets in Australia during the Global Financial Crisis, McGrath CEO John McGrath commented that Phil’s results were “unprecedented and in his first year of selling real estate full time, he did as well as anyone has in the history of our company”.

After 3 years in a selling role, Phil went into partnership and opened his own office in September 2015.

With a strong passion for developing talented individuals into successful real estate agents, Phil grew the business to more than 20 sales staff within 18 months. In just 3 years of operation, Phil’s team achieved more than $450 million in sales and were ranked 6th in Australia within the national Group of over 400 offices and in the top 1% of all real estate offices in Queensland. Queensland Group CEO was quoted as saying “This office is the greatest start-up success story I have seen in the real estate industry in Australia”.

2018, Phil bought out the remaining shares in the business to become the sole Director.

In 2020, Phil restructured the business and joined the Stone Real Estate Group as a business owner, focusing his attention on the South Brisbane market after moving his young family to Bulimba. Having overseen more than $600m in transactions in the last 5 years and achieving successful results for his clients in all market cycles over the last decade, Phil is ideally positioned to guide you towards achieving your real estate goals.

Giuliana Finlay

Head of Property Management, Stone Asset Management

Giuliana Finlay is an award-winning property manager with over 13 years of experience. Her problem-solving mindset perfectly complements her impeccable communication and organisation skills and is a comfort to owners and tenants alike.

Following through on the basics has become surprisingly uncommon amongst real estate professionals, yet Giuliana’s expert knowledge allows room for her relentless follow-through, which in turn delivers superior results. Her ongoing enthusiasm to develop and lead top tier management teams allows her clients to regularly enjoy the ‘Giuliana Standard’ of outcomes for their investment properties.

Giuliana is the benchmark in Property Management and is highly regarded as a leader by her colleagues and industry peers.

“When I think of my business relationship with Giuliana the words trust-worthy, contentious, courteous and meticulously detailed quickly come to mind.
They are not concepts that you typically associate with the real estate industry! Yet I find that Giuliana always manages to balance needs and expectations of both clients (landlord and tenant) with a high level of integrity and professionalism. I would chase her to the moon and back to manage my properties.”
