Orla has been a part of the real-estate industry for an impressive 27 years. He’s a born and bred Australian with a Danish background. In 1993 Orla started his real estate career after purchasing his first property at the age of 23. The involvement in the residential sales transaction inspired him to explore the industry further. Orla grew a passion for making the transaction of a sale successful to all parties. And after working his way through the ranks of the Ashmore office (Nickita Realty) then in 1999 Orla acquired the agency he had been working for all those years and eventually changed the brand to PRD Ashmore in 2002.
Selling thousands of homes in the Ashmore/Molendinar areas has led to large amounts of repeat business from happy customers and clients. Orla has a wide range of skills throughout the real estate industry whether it be selling and leasing residential properties, commercial, industrial and development projects. Orla has vast experience in many facets of the real estate industry. Orla remains one of the longest serving real estate agents in the Ashmore/Molendinar area and is a proud member of the Real Estate Institute of Queensland (REIQ).
Outside of work Orla values time with his loving family and is a passionate boating & fishing enthusiast. You’ll often see him hooking up his camper trailer, and 4 wheel driving the most beautiful locations of Australia. Orla and business partner Andrew are easily identified by creating a family style business environment.

Honesty is Orlas best policy, he encourages honest feed back and in return is always honest and genuine to all staff, clients and buyers alike. Working with Orla is fun yet productive. He knows how to create an enjoyable yet efficient work environment. He is a people person with a ‘go get em’ approach to work and is a fair, honest and genuine business man who prides himself on loyalty with clients. He’s not only a great boss but a close friend that treats all his staff like family. He is energetic, enthusiastic and outgoing. He enjoys telling stories and sharing knowledge that will motivate us, educate us or simply to make us laugh.
He is always ticking jobs off the list, and dealing with every challenge thrown his way. Orla is the go to man when there is any challenge to face. He always not only has a solution for these challenges but he ensures there is always opportunity for us to learn from these challenges we face as a team. His role as a Principal is to guide the office in a positive and upward direction. He oversees all areas of the business and is also the BDM on the Rental & Sales team and spends time meeting with new and current clients, completing property appraisals and bringing new business to the office.
Orla is extremely knowledgeable in all areas of real-estate both sales and property management, and provides huge support to his employees, a ‘hands on’ Principal with old school values, strong work ethic and provides exceptional customer services to clients as well as only accepting the same level of service to be given from his employees. Weather your looking for personal or industry related advise, he is always there to lend a helping hand and share his vast knowledge and support.
Orla is always up for a laugh and is an absolute jokester. He’s always ready to play a prank on someone in the office. You might come to work to find a terrifying spider on your chair, in your draw or in your bag! You really never know. It keeps the energy in the office fun and humorous.
Orla, along with our Director Andrew both display on a day to day basis, the true meaning of trustworthy business partnership. We are continuously inspired and extremely proud to represent the PRD Ashmore name. We couldn’t ask for better employers to lead our family like team.
