Our Backyard Anglesea & Torquay

Good bye spring, nice knowing you I won’t miss you one bit! Well maybe just a little more than winter.

So we are ready for summer and our stock levels are increasing along with a nice little boost in buyer enquiry over the last week. We had 2 properties with multiple interested parties and offers after open for inspections and private appointments last weekend. Both properties being sold at the asking … Continue Reading »

Swimming in the ocean on Monday, Skiing on the slopes on Friday – who needs to fly to whistler when you can drive to Falls Creek! Even with the crazy conditions we’re having guests have been calling us this week to book properties to stay in, even understanding the forecast. The appeal of not knowing what to expect has kept it interesting for anyone heading to the coast, all we … Continue Reading »

I have this incredibly special monthly catch up with a bunch of long-time friends, we started this tradition over 15 years ago and have been friends for close to 30 years, there are 14 of us in the group. Each woman gets nominated a month and it’s up to her to pick date, time & venue so there can literally be just 2 that can go or as many as … Continue Reading »

What an incredible weekend of activity we had over the long weekend, it feels like Tuesday to me today with people heading back from enjoying the coast on Cup Day. The surfing conditions were exceptional and car parks at our favourite beaches were full.

For local shoppers, all the big surf brands had clearance sales on in Torquay, making way for the new summer season. There are still some great bargains … Continue Reading »

Blog – 22nd November 2018

When we experience a week like the one we have just had and then the week we have ahead, it’s understandable why women need their own walk in robe. I have pulled out summer dresses, bathers, heels, thongs, boots, jackets, coats, umbrellas, hats and sunglasses! It’s absolutely necessary when looking at crucial rooms that ‘sell a home’ on a floor plan, are the ones that offer … Continue Reading »

This week I have barely been able to sleep as I’ve had what I refer to as ‘property adrenaline rush’ architectural styles and features running through my veins! Being in property we deal with so many varieties of homes and what I particularly love about the coast is that we can almost offer any buyer a property based on their buying criteria and budget. We have launched to market this … Continue Reading »

Last week I took a little regional road trip for a few days, visiting some gorgeous little towns in and around the high country and alpine national park.  Spring is such a beautiful time of year to go visiting, it was a visual delight and incredibly pretty with lush green fields, blossom on the trees and still seeing some snow-capped mountains around Mt Hotham and Mt Bulla. I checked out … Continue Reading »

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 … Continue Reading »

I had a very large slice of humble pie last Saturday morning after waking up confirming it wasn’t just a bad nightmare….Tigers totally annihilated by the pies. So, I jumped on the Demons bandwagon and then Sunday morning headed into the office and there was Raema eating another slice of humble pie, so we were miserable together after the dream of our teams playing each other was smashed in 24 … Continue Reading »

Last Saturday when I woke up and the coastline demonstrated all 27 weather patterns, I felt sick and a sense of personal responsibility for the participants of the amazing events that were on! One thing we now know is that dedicated and committed athletes actually embrace anything the universe throws at them and simply add it into the overall mix of the challenge.

In total there were 1,100 runners in the … Continue Reading »
