Our Backyard Anglesea & Torquay

This business is mainly based around joy, blissful holidays on the coast, relaxing days and the experience of purchasing a new home, selling one and altering your life for the better.

When I first moved to the coast, whilst I have friends that own beach houses here, essentially I really didn’t know anyone.  It’s fortunate that real estate offers a window to reach out and meet people and have lots of contact and interaction which is why I love the role so much, the constant ability to chat to anyone and everyone.  Having said that, it still can be tricky making connections in a small town and like anywhere, we all have our close friends, family and busy schedules without thinking about bringing more people into your inner sanctum.

Literally one of the first people that I met, was this vibrant woman insisting I join her and her family for a drink at the yacht club, over the top with energy I was definitely drawn to her and let’s face it who doesn’t need an excuse to have wine by the ocean. It was when I first laid eyes on the yacht club in its raw original form and after a few drinks, the entire family was encouraging me to do something with it. It became a special meeting place and before too long all our lives became intertwined. Alanna and Phil Boston are Anglesea residents and have a long history with the coast and Geelong, with 5 children. It turned out that her daughter Georgia worked in radio with so many of my old advertising colleagues and friends of mine, in fact she worked at Nova just after I left many years ago and then we discovered her kids go to Elsternwick primary with another group of my friends. Amazing connections everywhere.

Last week was devastating as Georgia Boston, Alanna & Phil’s daughter passed away, dying suddenly however peacefully in her sleep, aged 41. She has 2 beautiful little boys and gorgeous husband Cam. We attended the funeral in Brighton on Wednesday, needless to say there were so many people there and so incredibly sad. For days all we can think of is the circle of friends, family and connections we make, Liza her sister spoke of the cherished memories of only just recently swimming in the water together at Point Roadknight and being grateful for life experiences together.

A very tough week, but as always with heartbreak and loss there then comes the reality that life does go on and every day is a blessing. To all the Boston family, who are all entrenched in the coast we give you our love and support and a hug whenever you need it.

Alanna swims every morning of the year at main beach, they are out playing golf and Alanna and I even had surfing lessons with Wes! A family that literally believes in making the most out of living.

As we get too busy, I think it’s so important to invite that person you don’t know in for a drink, create connections, say hi to your neighbour, make time for the people you care for.
