Councillor Dean Rees

Dean Rees

I was born and raised in Wangaratta to parents both in retail businesses before heading to Melbourne for 6 years to study and to work in the Real Estate field.

I returned home to Wangaratta in 1995 to be closer to family and friends and opened my first Real Estate office. Throughout my time away I always appreciated the closeness of a small community and what a country lifestyle has to offer.

After 20 successful years in Wangaratta, a fantastic marriage and two beautiful children my wife and I opened up the Rees & Rees lifestyle store in 34 Ovens Street to expand on our property development business and lifestyle loves.

Dean says –

We are a results orientated culture and that is what I want with my position at the Rural City of Wangaratta.

So get moved, be moved and move others.

I love calling Wangaratta Home.
