Time in real estate:

I started in Real Estate nine years ago in Longreach (Western Queensland) and covered every position from receptionist, property management and sales right through to principal of my own real estate agency.

During this time I gained a huge amount of experience and knowledge in every aspect of real estate.

Gladstone is my home town though and I recently moved back here to progress further in my career with LJ Hooker Gladstone.

Why real estate:

Buying or selling a house can be one of the biggest transactions that most people will make in their life time and being able to be a part of that on a day-to-day basis is really exciting, challenging and rewarding.

Highlights of career:

I owned my own successful real estate franchise from the age of 25 during which time I have won several awards including multiple high sales achievements and excellence in marketing.

As we all know, the real estate market in Gladstone is currently a tough one, but that doesn't mean that you can't sell your house and achieve a great result.

There are plenty of things you can do to ensure a successful sale.

I have included below my two best tips to sell in a quicker time frame, with more buyer interest and most importantly achieving a higher sales figure

Presentation - First impressions count so make sure that the front view of your house makes an impact.

Perfect presentation in the key to selling.

Properties that aren't presented as smartly to the buyer market generally will stay on the market for longer so make sure you have a thorough spring clean before you list your property for sale.

Some quick and inexpensive improvements to consider include planting some colourful plants at the entrance, painting your front door and fence, and buying a new front door mat.

Marketing - The number one thing to get right when selling your property.

Marketing profiles the property and lets people know that it's for sale, and if prepared correctly it will motivate and attract the right buyers who will pay the highest price for the property in the shortest time.
