Tony Barker has lived in the ACT since 2008 and in this time has fallen in love with Canberra.
"There's nothing better than driving down Parkes Way of an evening watching the sun setting over the National Museum with the Brindabellas in the background."
Tony has always had a keen interest in real estate, and is happy to have joined the friendly team at StepInside Properties.
Born in England, he emigrated to Australia over 20 years ago, and in this time has lived in Victoria, Queensland, New South Wales, South Australia and finally the Australian Capital Territory. With the experience of living all over the country he has a unique perspective of Australian life and understands how good life in Canberra really is.
"I love that there are four distinct seasons here, the changing of the leaves in autumn is beautiful around Lake Burley Griffin, and while the winters can be quite cold, being this close to the snow means I can hit the mountain every season."
Tony served in the Australian Defence Force for over 15 years, providing him with a discipline and conscientiousness not always found in the Real Estate industry, and is used to having a sense of urgency when it comes to dealing with people.
"I believe that it is important to get back to people as soon as possible. When people are buying a property it is a life changing decision, questions clients have are time critical and they need to be answered in a timely manner. There's nothing worse than not being able to get the answers you require when you are dealing with an exciting and sometimes stressful change. Our job is not just to sell property, it's to find the right property for the right person and give them peace of mind and the correct up-to-date industry knowledge to know that they are making the right decision."
