    Brisbane I love how your suburbs are the perfect jigsaw to create such a liveable city.
    Behind all those quirky names and squiggles of boundary’s there is so much history, sense of community and reasons why people love their own suburb.
    Each week I am going to ask a local to give me some insight into their suburb and why they love where they live or perhaps why the don’t. 🏠💙💚💙 #brisbaneanyday #brisbanesuburbs #brisbanecity #movetobrisbane #brisbanelocals #lovewhereyoulive #brisbaneproperty #brisbanebuyersagent #theinformedbuyer #peopleofbrisbane

    A rare insight into my family life as you may know I am the proud mum of three. Three officially all at school as of today.
    I went into motherhood as a corporate accountant something I gave up to stay at home. But with some focus and hard work I come out owning my own growing business doing something I love.
    So thank you to my kids for making me strong enough to give it a go. It’s funny how life changes, we adapt and become stronger.

    There is too much advice out there for parents and this page isn’t for that. I do have one thing to say to all those mums and dads out there ‘you are doing a great job’ because we are all doing the best we can!

    Look at this cracking poster I found whilst doing a pre settlement inspection today at a much loved family home. Owned for over 40 years by the sellers and recently purchased off market by my clients. I love finding little treasures. ...

    These words make my heart sing.⁣

    Thanks Ben Handler @buyersagentinstitute for taking the time to say this about me and all the extra time you have spent coaching and supporting me.⁣

    It’s always good to see yourself as a cartoon figurine. FYI those wrinkles took a lot of laughs to get. 😂😂😂 ⁣

    Donated as promised.

    As pledged earlier this week I wanted to help those impacted by drought and fire through a donation.
    To thank all of you, I have donated $1 for each follower to both worthy causes @redcrossau and @droughtangels . I appreciate everyone who follows and supports my business. 💙💚💙. Image credit: @lukava

    𝐇𝐞𝐥𝐥𝐨𝐨𝐨𝐨𝐨 𝟐𝟎𝟐𝟎!⁣

    Back at it and excited to be here. ⁣

    This year my main focus will continue to be my clients and providing them with exceptional service. ⁣

    What am I doing back when stock is so low?? Well here is a little hint- most property coming to market after the Australia Day weekend are doing their final prep and talking to their sales agent about their listing. This means there are lots of opportunities to be first in best dressed for my clients.⁣

    If you are considering purchasing early this year and want more information on ways I can assist please get in touch. I currently have two spots available as I only work with five clients at any one point to ensure I deliver the highest level of client service.⁣

    ** I would also like to acknowledge how tough many fellow Aussies are doing at the moment- please check out my stories to see how I am supporting and get involved where you can.
