Gavin Rubinstein has departed Ray White Double Bay, where based on sales commissions he was the agency’s best performer globally last year.

It was announced by Ray White Double Bay’s managing director, Elliott Placks tonight.

"There is no doubt that Gavin had left an indelible mark on the Sydney property scene in his career to date," Placks said.

“We have enjoyed watching Gavin and his team grow and develop over the years.

"Our business is like family, and sometimes you have to let them go to grow. ” Mr Placks said.

It was last September when the founding directors of Ray White Double Bay, Craig Pontey and Michael Finger sold their shareholdings to Elliott Placks, securing a 30-strong sales force.

The Ray White Double Bay office had previously sold more than $930 million annually, being the number one office in Ray White’s Australian network for the last seven years.

Rubinstein, 31, celebrated 10 years in the real estate industry in 2017, and was just nine months short of 10 years with Ray White.

Rubinstein ranked as the number one residential salesperson in all of Australia for Ray White in the past six years.

There has been no indication from Rubinstein as to his next move, and there are denied whispers he is headed to LJ Hooker's Avnu.
The departure was announced at 7.30pm, just minutes after Rubinstein posted an Instagram on his latest Dover Heights auction offering.
His social media profiles still have him at Ray White. 
Rubinstein has previously said he has found technology, media and social media as a great way to stay in touch on a mass scale.

"It’s guerilla marketing.

“I engage with most of my clients through Facebook, LinkedIn or Instagram and constantly am active on these platforms.”

He has 20,000 followers in Intsagram.

He once said what sets him apart from other agents all comes down to hard work.

“Work ethic and discipline around what is required to be done daily to succeed in this business.

"I simply outwork the competition. 

"It is very hard to beat someone who doesn’t give up.”

Rubinstein likes the international highlife, regularly taking off for short stays at the Beverly Hills Hotel in LA.

His mates call it his second home.

Rubinstein sold TV personality Larry Emdur his and wife Sylvie's Sydney CBD bolthole late last year.

Placks, this evening described it as simply “a parting of ways” having briefly initially been reported as describing the parting of ways as a “divorce”.

“It’s not an ugly divorce in any sense,” he reportedly said.

“Our values have shifted over the past six months and we’ve decided to part ways."

Placks said Rubinstein’s current listings would continue to carry Ray White Double Bay branding.

Rubinstein told the local paper The Wentworth Courier he didn’t wish to comment.

Last October he was featured on the front cover of the paper, described as "a celebrity in the dazzling world of eastern suburbs property."
