What’s your backstory and why did you determine to launch your enterprise?
With 30 years of trade experience in residential, industrial and funding gross sales and backed by a Enterprise Diploma in Property (Valuations) I started my profession promoting actual property in Melbourne earlier than transferring to Singapore to handle strategic property investments. By the point I returned to Australia, I had executed over $1.7B in transactions.
Now embracing my ‘luxe life’ on the Sunshine Coast and impressed by my property background, I’m keen about guiding expats, interstate, and locals on methods to make a way of life transfer. I consider a property buy goes far past a floorplan and a location, it’s a heart-centred feeling of authentically embracing a brand new neighborhood and a brand new way of life. Reaching this intention requires refined communication expertise, with trustworthy and open discussions all through the method. That is particularly vital for expats and interstate patrons, who place full confidence in me and my group to information them by way of each step of the method, from analysis and technique to negotiation and settlement.
Everybody has their very own causes for pursuing a luxe life. I perceive the trials and tribulations of repatriation and discovering a way of neighborhood when returning house after residing abroad.
What has been your greatest problem to this point and the way did you overcome it?
Studying that well being is wealth. With out well being, there’s no wealth! I’m a high-energy one who has realized to decelerate, create house, and easily keep in mind to breathe. My self-care routine is split into two distinct classes: integration into day by day life and structured day trip.
Day by day integrations must be easy and constant. For me, it’s “stomach respiratory” peppered all through the day and strolling in nature. It’s a easy day by day routine – choose 3 times a day and breathe deeply 5 instances. The advantages are infinite – it regulates your autonomic nervous system, taking you from ‘flight or struggle’ to encourage the physique to loosen up. I at all times gravitate to walks in nature, whether or not it’s a coastal stroll or having a therapeutic massage in nature. My go-to is the luxurious of the outside at So Spa in Sentosa.

When you do what you’re keen on, you by no means work a day in your life. My enterprise energises me – I can’t think about life, with out the great shoppers I get to work with and I completely love what I do. I’m additionally blessed that I can convey my values to the enterprise. In my small enterprise, I contemplate how I can associate with like-minded professionals (notably ladies in enterprise) and purchase native, with consideration to the atmosphere. Some instance embody True North Collective for our signature candles and Noosa Reward and Co for consumer presents, who supply regionally and sustainably. I like to champion ladies each professionally and thru supporting charities we associate with.
Our podcast sequence and occasions mirror this dedication. Lately, we hosted a lunch for 100 people who benefited weak ladies on the Sunshine Coast and the ladies in Sri Lanka by way of the Plates of Goodness Cook dinner-Guide. This was a good looking collaboration.
How do you retain stress ranges low?
I create house to breathe deeply. For me, stomach respiratory all through the day is vital and spending as a lot time in nature as doable. Strolling is my meditation, I’m so extremely fortunate to stay in such a good looking and provoking place as Noosa.
Favorite place to work?
I completely love working alongside Noosa River! It’s my inspiration, my luxe and my neighborhood. Our workplace can also be positioned inside a two-minute stroll to the river – now that’s Luxe!

My favorite enterprise software that I can not not stay with out is Trello, I exploit it for each my shoppers and my group. Now we have created a Property Funding Board, which takes our shoppers on their journey, tailor-made to their distinctive necessities.
My work mantra is that folks keep in mind the way you make them really feel, not what you do. That’s the reason we concentrate on going past the transaction with our shoppers to not solely discover them their dream property however their ‘luxe life-style’, whereas connecting them to the neighborhood.
