    Over the weekend I bid at auction on behalf of my interstate clients.
    It was one of those auctions with spirited and active bidding from the floor.

    How did we go- well in true form I was not front and centre but watch those quiet back corner bidders 😉

    That smile on my face at the end says it all.

    My advice if you are new to Brisbane and looking for a family friendly neighbourhood is get out this Halloween and scope the suburbs under consideration. ⁣
    While Brisbane doesn’t celebrate Halloween in all neighbourhoods the streets that do are a sure sign of a neighbourhood full of children.⁣

    Enjoy 🎃 if your not sure where to start here is a small list and please feel free to leave any I haven’t mentioned in the comments.

    𝐃𝐚𝐥𝐦𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐚𝐧 + 𝐡𝐢𝐬 𝐟𝐚𝐦𝐢𝐥𝐲 are looking for a new home.⁣

    My clients moving to Brisbane and wanting to buy the following:⁣
    - big back yard to play in.⁣
    - Seperate living with at least 4 bedrooms together⁣

    The ideal weekend for this young family would be waking up grabbing a coffee and going out for a walk or ride in nature. ⁣

    The ideal street would be quiet where people know their neighbours and the odd game of cricket is played.⁣

    Doesn’t have to be new and shiny- they would prefer large and in need of some updates.⁣

    For the above reasons I am focusing in on The Gap, Chapel Hill, Kenmore but open to other suburbs.⁣

    Budget in the $900k’s and brick homes preferred. ⁣

    𝐒𝐞𝐭𝐭𝐥𝐞𝐦𝐞𝐧𝐭 𝐠𝐢𝐟𝐭 𝐝𝐞𝐥𝐢𝐯𝐞𝐫𝐲 𝐭𝐢𝐦𝐞 🚚 ⁣

    My first home buyer has just settled, is moving in today and I was excited to be the first official visitor. ⁣

    When it comes to a little present I love to deliver something that was part of our journey.⁣

    Let me explain:⁣
    At one of the properties we inspected everything was ideal and lots of things to love. Afterwards we were debriefing when my client mentioned ‘even the shampoo was my dream shampoo’. We laughed at this little comment as we sipped our coffees.

    So when it came to settlement gift I went back to the video from this property, googled the colours from the bottle until I found the right brand, tracked it down here in Brisbane - and you guessed it from a fancy hairdresser in New Farm and today I got to deliver it and she is so excited 😆. ⁣

    Oh the memories of unpacking in your first home sweet home! Work with someone who listens to every little thing you say because these are the things that matter.⁣

    Have a great weekend everyone!!!⁣

    Now unconditional ⁣🌟🌟🌟

    This Grand Queenslander just landed herself some lovely new owners. ⁣

    This home had a lot of attention in it’s short time on the market but all the good properties do.

    More details coming soon......

    It fills my heart with joy to watch my clients dream home coming to life. 💫💫

    A big part of my role is not just about the property but the location and lifestyle it will deliver.⁣

    For my clients that aren’t local I do everything I can to familiarise them with the neighbourhoods they are considering. Making sure the suburb is what they are looking for. #personalisedservice⁣

    From personalised maps to videos/photos and many conversations about the area. It has become crucial as currently I have clients who can’t fly into Queensland. This family wanted to be in an area with playgrounds, good coffee, neighbourhood wine bars and multiple commuting options. I know it’s all of these things in a community that add to a home. If it’s a weekend walk to the park with a coffee in hand that makes you smile 😊 I know lots of great options.⁣ #brisbanesuburbs #movetobrisbane #brisbaneanyday #aussieexpats #localknowledge #theinformedbuyer
