LORNE – HERE AND THERE

Less than six weeks until Christmas and the coastal crowds are building week in week out and I love hearing the ongoing stories of our visitors sharing their love for the beauties of our region. Occasionally we will be asked “do you ever take it for granted?” Never! Is the very simple undisputed answer. In fact, I feel … Continue Reading »

Our Backyard Anglesea & Torquay

We have certainly had 4 seasons over the last week, sweltering and swimming one day and the next sitting in front of the fire watching the rain pour down. I hate to say it but it seems if you’re on the coast Monday – Friday, the weather is beautiful and then as soon as the weekend arrives along with our guests, winter hits!

It’s never … Continue Reading »

Our Backyard – Aireys Inlet

There is an old saying in real estate that a property which is
well presented, well marketed and well priced is almost already sold.

This week we contracted just such a property at 165 Boundary
Road, Aireys Inlet.

Five weeks ago I met with the vendors of the property who were
looking to sell. They asked me the usual things about value, costs to sell … Continue Reading »

LORNE – HERE AND THERE

Caulfield Cup for many is the start of the Melbourne
Spring Racing Campaign and its fair to say that even the coast turns an
interest to the sounds of crashing hoofs. Whether it’s the horses or the fun
times that surround the campaign there is always plenty of interest on the coast.
Following tomorrows Caulfield races, the focus will shift to nearby … Continue Reading »

Real Estate is an industry that is built on relationships, client service and honourable reputations. We reinforce to buyers all the time the importance of being transparent and clear with the brief, so that we can refer properties to meet the criteria.

A wonderful example of this took place this week with our Agent Ben Jackson, he recently listed 8/105 Great Ocean Road and then … Continue Reading »

So the Tigers are premiers again after also taking the silverware in 2017. With a relatively young list it may not be the last premiership for this group and many are talking of a ‘Tigers dynasty’. Unfortunately the game was a flop as a spectacle with little resistance being provided by GWS who looked totally overawed by the occasion…. Continue Reading »

Our Backyard – Lorne

My working day this morning started at the same early hour just before day break in a space overlooking the Mooloolaba Surf Club. As I put fingers to the keyboard the early morning temperature hovered around a pleasant 17°, at the same time I was intrigued to view that the Lorne temperature was 20° with a mercury tipped to rise to 24. It’s a great time in Lorne … Continue Reading »

Bank interest rates & savings accounts have been under
the spot light this week, specifically with them being so low it’s hardly worth
having cash in the account! With very little return on savings, older generations
and pensioners in particular are complaining about how they can  generate a return on their investment.

The Reserve
Bank of Australia have made comment; saying an ageing population is actually partly to
blame … Continue Reading »
