It’s the one time of the year that generally families/ anyone flees to warmth or complete opposite, the snow! For us on the coast, July is a month to strategically plan out the upcoming spring and summer, so whilst it appears very quiet, I particularly enjoy the … Continue Reading »

Happy New Year!

It’s end of financial year and time to analyse the performance of the Anglesea market over the last 6 months.

Last weekend buyers almost needed a bravery award for stepping outside and into the wild winds and rain. I felt like Dorothy in the wizard of Oz at my house and funnily enough my dog Rosie looks very much like Toto… I do have to say though being tucked up in the warmth, fire blazing and sitting on the edge of Australia with such dramatic weather is a … Continue Reading »

Next week we are all getting our flu shots because in this business like most of us, not only can we not afford to get sick, no one ever wants to spend precious time feeling unwell at home!

Our Backyard – Anglesea

The wild seas, the squally winds, rain coming down in sheets and for a moment, I’m absolutely loving it. There is something wonderful about being in the middle of a weather pattern that is dramatic and unique. I have this beautiful painting at home and it’s called ‘Surfers Nightmare’ big crazy waves with an array of colors and white tips, greens and blues of various shades and shapes. When I … Continue Reading »

Along with new buyers coming into the market which have just discovered how beautiful our coastline is.

As I continue to mention, properties in the … Continue Reading »
