It is with great pride that I am able to present East Kimberley Real Estate’s services to you as the new Agency Owner. Many Kununurra and Wyndham locals know my face from around town given I have now lived in Kununurra for approximately 14 years after my three day visit turned somewhat more permanent.
Originally from Darwin I have a genuine love for the top end of Australia and in particular the East Kimberley Region. I enjoy the small town life of Kununurra and have been happily settled in my own home for many years with my fiancé, whom I met here.
Having “retired” from my original career as a chef some years ago, I have benefited from various employment opportunities within Kununurra. During this time I feel I have earned a generally high level of respect from members of the community - both on a social and working basis.
I started my career in the dynamic field of real estate assisting Andrea Fox, the former Agency Owner with the set up of the business when the doors opened in 2006. Now having taken the opportunity to purchase the business with my partner, we have a genuine interest in continuing the company’s success and professional reputation well into the future.
Having been a Registered Sales Representative since early 2007 I have recently also obtained my Diploma in Property Services. Further I have had the benefit of learning from Andrea how to do real estate “properly and professionally” increasing my own skill base whilst learning from Andrea’s extensive sales and property management experience. During four years of full time employment as Office Manager for the agency I was exposed to all facets of the real estate business including Property Management, Sales, Administration and staff management.
I have enjoyed the challenges this career path has provided me with whilst enabling me to assist people of my community with their housing needs. I am fully confident in my knowledge of marketing procedures and my ability to successfully implement advertising campaigns. I intend to continue as a very ‘hands on’ agency owner ensuring the business continues to run in a professional and ethical manner.
Our small staffing numbers enables me to oversee personally all aspects of not only sales but our property management services to ensure a dedicated service to you.
I have been able to secure excellent staff and feel the team I have now is not only a credit to East Kimberley Real Estate but to themselves and Kununurra. Our experienced team shares my enthusiasm and passion for the industry and together we form one of the fastest growing, market leaders of real estate in the local area.
We commit to providing you with the most professional and enthusiastic Real Estate service in town and endeavour to get great results for you, the client. We will strive to make the difference, our aim being excellence in Real Estate.
You can be assured that everyone at East Kimberley Real Estate is passionate about their work and their love of Kununurra and the region. We look forward to being of service to you at the earliest opportunity.
