Television's celebrity chippie turned real estate agent Tom Williams has quietly moved on from his job in the highly competitive lower North Shore residential sales market.

After just six months at LJ Hooker Avnu he's quit the tech savvy Mosman estate agency which is pioneering Artificial Intelligence in house sales.

Williams was being well utilised in the many video walk-throughs of the agency's prestige listings, while he learnt about the art of sales.

The vendors certainly loved having the ultra professional Williams promoting their pricey homes.

His next move is unconfirmed although he never actually gave up working at the family's property marketing business which has several apartment projects on its books.

Williams had turned to the family company straight after leaving Channel 7 last year where he was the co-host of The Daily Edition with Sally Obermeder.

The Double Bay project marketing company, Boutique Estates International is headed by his sister in law, Vanessa Gilbert who was keen for Williams to gain a little further experience.

Williams is married to fashion designer Rachel Gilbert, with the couple having two girls, Storm and Sloane, who attend school locally in Mosman.

It was in February when Williams joined the Michael Coombs team in Mosman, with just the two sales credited to his name on the realestate.com.au website.

AVNU was set up earlier this year after Coombs had quit McGrath after 16 years.

Coombs had told the Mosman Collective blog that appointing Williams was an "absolute no brainer".

“It’s pertinent for me to say that Tom Williams is more than just a pretty face,” Coombs said.

He's not the only pretty face who have pushed the new Avnu on social media platforms.

Three weeks ago model Kris Smith starred in a video posted on Coombs's LinkedIn page, where Smith sang the praises of the agency's technical solutions that replaced paperwork which allows more face to face time with buyers and sellers.

Williams has also done some recent promotional work for Disney on Ice.

Of all the things he's done, it was what made his children really excited.

"They completely freaked out and I immediately went to 'Legend Status' as a dad!" he told Nine Honey.

Williams will continue to produce and present property videos for agencies.
