Our Backyard Anglesea & Torquay

With such low stock levels in properties under $1 million it
was no surprise to me that I had two offers on 47 Murray Street, Anglesea after
the first weekend of open for inspections. There is nothing more fulfilling
that having sold a property before the board goes up at the property, then even
better putting a sold sticker on it when it does! An incredible result selling
it $15K more than the … Continue Reading »

When the property market can go into hibernation in the
Melbourne metro area in the coming weeks, our coastal market thrives! There are
great current and new beach houses that are hitting the market literally every
week right up until the end of January, so stay tuned and make sure you allow
time to get through open for inspections or let us know if you would like to
view properties privately by appointment. … Continue Reading »

It was sad to hear the Koala affectionately named Lewis that
I shared footage of being saved from a burning tree last week unfortunately
didn’t survive & passed away this week. The footage created international
exposure on our bush fires and the wildlife impacted, shedding a huge light on
saving and rehabilitating animals. Lewis did not die in vain in fact he has
assisted in generating a … Continue Reading »

It was quite scary yesterday putting my fire plan in place, being surrounded by bush it’s really the first time I’ve felt the vulnerability of the entire state of Victoria being on watch. I was so happy when that cool change came through knowing we were safe for now, I loved opening up the doors and windows to let the fresh cool air flow through. I sat down … Continue Reading »

There is no doubt that this week, every person in Australia
has felt the impact of the fires and devastation going on in 3 states of this
country. Every day, heart breaking stories of people losing their lives, their
homes and animals. As I sat watching the news at my home, I looked out to the
stunning environment, being surrounded by bush & it has made me revisit ‘my
plan’ should this happen … Continue Reading »

We have certainly had 4 seasons over the last week, sweltering and swimming one day and the next sitting in front of the fire watching the rain pour down. I hate to say it but it seems if you’re on the coast Monday – Friday, the weather is beautiful and then as soon as the weekend arrives along with our guests, winter hits!

It’s never … Continue Reading »

A perfect warm summer week, the ocean has looked bluer than blue and

how beautiful the coast is.  Along with
the beach there are so many activities to embrace in in our stunning
environment.

Anglesea and Torquay are both renowned for having excellent golf
courses, I’m not a golfer myself but the people I … Continue Reading »

In our industry our minds are always in blocks of seasons and holiday periods, where we have to plan ahead and be ready for a lot more people on our coastline & in properties. There are only 9 weeks to our high peak summer time, which kicks off from Boxing Day, although there is a very strong trend taking place from mid-December now so Christmas day can be … Continue Reading »

Real Estate is an industry that is built on relationships, client service and honourable reputations. We reinforce to buyers all the time the importance of being transparent and clear with the brief, so that we can refer properties to meet the criteria.

A wonderful example of this took place this week with our Agent Ben Jackson, he recently listed 8/105 Great Ocean Road and then … Continue Reading »
