    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. 😂😂😂 ⁣

    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.

    Today I wanted to review and revisit the big impacts I have seen this year on the property market and remind you all of the year that has been.

    🎄 🎄 🎄 12 Days of Christmas - Day 8

    Most memorable room in 2019

    At an estimate I have seen over 4,732 rooms this year. 😂😂 life statistics.

    This one was a stand out. One of those ones you rush home and talk your husband through as he rolls his eyes 🙄. Light, bright, right orientation NE and I must admit I have a weak spot for white kitchens. I do think the Kitchen is the most important room in a family home.

    Sure I would have seen more expensive rooms but for me this was the most memorable!!! Thanks @glenlyongroup.

    Maybe I will hit 5,000 rooms next year 😝.

    🎄 🎄 🎄 12 Days of Christmas - Day 7

    It’s one of my favourite days of the year!!! I am driving around town knocking on all my clients doors and sprinkling some Christmas magic.

    Most are celebrating their very first Christmas in their new home and I can’t wait to see their happy faces again. 😁😁 You know who you are so lock up and turn off your lights because you know there will be hugs all round. I never feel alone in my little biz as my clients are the best company anyone could have!

    A recent purchase along Kedron Brook was made completely off market. Here is what lies on their door step- km’s of parkland and bike tracks to enjoy. No more packing bikes and scooters into the car for this lovely local family.⁣
