How did you find yourself working in property and specifically in your field?
Since a young age, I have had an interest in property, spending weekends with my Mum just browsing through display homes to get interior design ideas for our new home, or popping into local open homes purely out of interest to see what was happening in the neighbourhood. This interest lead me to apply to be a real estate sales cadet at 21, and since making my first sale in 2007 I haven’t looked back.
Did you grow up in Melbourne? Tell us a little about where you are from and where you live now…
I grew up in Drysdale, a small town on the Bellarine Peninsula. I have spent the majority of my adult life living in Melbourne, aside from a two year stint in London. Now I happily call Elwood home.
What was your favorite TV show when growing up?
I loved watching Beverly Hills 90210, The Bill and Seinfeld.
What is one thing you could not live without?
My family and my gorgeous puppy, Henri.
Describe your ultimate holiday?
Road tripping in a convertible along the Amalfi coast, visiting local vineyards and eating pizza!
If you could have any one superpower, which would you choose?
As I love to travel, I would love to be able to fly!
Which sporting teams do you barrack for?
I’m not a huge sports fan, but I do back the Geelong Cats.
What is the best thing about your job?
I enjoy meeting a variety of people, as well as the challenging aspects of the role that require lots of problem solving. It’s great to be in a fast paced industry.
What are three things still left on your bucket list?
My bucket list mainly involves travel and I have a long list of places I am yet to visit. The next three are the Amalfi Coast, Cambodia & Japan.
What is the greatest piece of advice you have received?
My mum’s advice to me has always been to do whatever makes me happy, and to always follow my gut instincts.
