My career in real estate combines my loves for property, houses and people.
Through my 20+ years in the industry, my honesty, transparency and strong listening skills have enabled me to build solid and trusting relationships with my clients. Working in real estate, we meet a diverse range of people, in all stages of life and hearing their stories and finding a way to meet their needs is something I relish.
I live in the beautiful coastal community of Gerringong, where I am firmly entrenched as a soccer and dance Mum, school volunteer and proud founder of the Kiama and Gerringong Crop and Swap and Gerringong Bowling Club Community Garden – groups for gardening and swapping surplus produce from our home gardens. This sense of community, along with the beautiful landscapes and family-friendly lifestyle make it a joy to live and work in this area.
Achieving a record sale for the entire Kiama region in 2018 has been one of my greatest career achievements.
Let me guide you through the sale of your home with honesty, communication and experience.

Her understanding ear and advice was much appreciated and her legwork prior to open house secured a quick sale and with some negotiation a price acceptable to all parties, saving the trauma of a protracted sale.
