Why Real Estate?
After working for 22 years in Media Sales across all forms of traditional media and then branching into digital, I decided my time in the world of media had come to an end.
Yes, I surprised myself when I realised I was keen to try something completely different. But what….. was the question!
I then asked myself one simple question. What do I enjoy most?
The answer was immediate…… I love looking after people!
An offer to join the fantastic team at Blacks Real Estate was an easy decision for me. As their jingle says….. Blacks Real Estate, the trusted name in Real Estate! The Blacks Real Estate Team has years of experience and knowledge in this industry and I am looking forward to learning from the BEST! Their experience combined with up to date data at my fingertips will ensure I will be able to provide you with the latest information for the successful sale or purchase of your property.
I did not consider this career because of my love of houses. I was interested because of my love of helping people and I know I will not be disappointed.
There will be no better feeling when I know I have either assisted someone to buy a home they have fallen in love with or I have successfully sold someone’s property so they can make their next move.
