Our Backyard – Anglesea

Although we have had an increase in numbers of people around Anglesea over the Melbourne Cup long weekend it’s certainly been much quieter around town than previous years. For those who were here, the weather was fantastic providing an awesome beach day with the mercury climbing towards 30 degrees as Twilight Payment crossed the finish line to win the 2020 Melbourne Cup. The Cup was celebrated in a … Continue Reading »

Seasonal Change

We have had a very busy winter in real estate along the Surf Coast with most listings that had not sold last summer/autumn transacting during the colder moths, complimented by a number of off-market transactions. This unseasonal increased activity in winter left stock levels at an all-time low, not just in Anglesea but all the way along the Great Ocean Road. Our seasonal … Continue Reading »

As I talk to people that were once very supportive of the first lock down measures, and the early stages of the second lock down, they are now very critical of the state government and its management of … Continue Reading »

 I think if we can all get through the next few weeks; we may just be thinking how good it was to be in lockdown during winter. A little taste of Spring today and tomorrow is just what we all needed to lift our spirits and dare to dream about the upcoming warmer months.

With property stock levels being so low and excellent qualified buyers … Continue Reading »

A few of my friends have been celebrating milestone birthdays this week, its so hard to not see your besties and give them a hug on such special occasions. The beauty is though that we have had to find creative ways to connect and send our love. All our friends caught up and had 5pm ‘zoom’ drinks and then later I joined a ‘zoom’ dinner party!… Continue Reading »

There is not a moment of my day that I don’t think of my beautiful mum or feel her presence, the heartbreak of losing her certainly put life in perspective. When she died in April, the Anglesea nursing home had been in lock down for the first time and I was unable able to visit her for a month.

We were new to the restrictions … Continue Reading »

Whilst the stage 3 covid19 restrictions will slow the number of visitors to our coastline, the light at the end of the tunnel for a lot of people is the potential to change their life and future, after lockdown.

Buyers that … Continue Reading »
