We were new to the restrictions … Continue Reading »

The main one being to remove myself from a lifestyle so busy, that the focus had shifted from everything that was super important and precious to me. It was time to change my life and appreciate the beauty not only for my environment but also to ensure I had … Continue Reading »

Secondary to our health and family, friends & pets, our home has never been more valued before ever in our lives! As we go into lock down, the spaces we surround ourselves in have become crucial for our well-being.

About this

and relax and heal a little. I had booked to go to Byron Bay for some sunshine
and warmth, I always just need to be close to the ocean, so if its not local

We often
get questioned in real estate about specific dealings in negotiations and
