Our mission statement is Personal, Friendly and Professional . So this month we have chosen to get Personal. We wanted to share with you a little bit on who we are, where we have been and where we are going.
So firsts things first...
What has happened so far for you in 2016?
I had taken some time off early this year as I become a mum for the first time, to a little boy ‘Jack’.
I love being a mum but in having this time off I have also realised that I want to follow my passion of being a Real Estate Sales Agent. So I have been working along side Heather in Luke & Associates Real Estate.
I have had a lot of time to think over the last few months. (Breaking my ankle in 3 places wasn’t the most clever thing I’ve done!! -)
It seems retirement wasn’t quite what I thought it would be, I missed the thrill I get from the Sales process. Also working with Sally is lots of fun, we make a great team, and it’s great to be back!!
Why did you choose Real Estate as a career?
I started originally working for Luke & Associates while I was in high school, being the ‘family business’ I would come after school some days to help do filing or to just man the office while Heather (mum) was out meeting with clients or conducting open inspections. After going to school and completing university I was starting to get an interest into property. Fate intervened at the end of 2008 as a staff member was leaving Luke & Associates and I started on the January 2nd 2009. Since then I haven’t looked back, together mum and I have grown from strength to strength.
Having worked in the bank and then in merchandising I decided to try Real Estate, I knew I had to make it work as the truth is I was going into Real Estate to pay for the kids education, but it soon became my passion, and still is. What I love about working in Real Estate now is that I am working alongside Sally who has the same passion and determination as myself.
What is the most rewarding part to your job?
I have been giving this a lot of thought recently and I want to be known as a ‘dream achiever’ in 99% of the time when we are selling properties and we are selling them because the vendor is having a change to achieve their dream. For instance the property we are currently selling the owners have bought their dream property in NSW. We are also helping purchasers as when they are buying the property whether it is to buy their first property, buy their dream home or buy an investment it’s all achieving dreams.
I love all aspects, the marketing, the negotiating and to see peoples objectives met.
This is why I have continued to do the job I love to do for more than 30 years now!
What does the future hold for the both of you?
Together we want to continue to help people achieve their dreams through Real Estate. We will continue to sell properties in the Metropolitan of Adelaide and follow our dreams of travelling around Australia and the world.
Now you know a little bit more about us! We look forward to seeing and hearing from you soon!
