I have been matching clients with homes for over 10 years now and have had many repeat customers, helping them step up the property ladder or increase their investment portfolios. In that time I have many "highlights" including 2017 Agent Of the Year. For me it's not just about making the sale, it's about matching the right buyer with the right home - that's where I find the best results are achieved. It takes a thorough understanding of both vendors' and buyers' needs to make the perfect match and my consultative approach, backed-up by an honest and friendly personality, means I consistently make the match. Ongoing communications and personal contact, market updates and staying on top of the sales process provides the best possible experience for my buyers and sellers. I believe that it is important to work closely with my clients and listen to their needs in order to achieve the result that they desire. I love Portland, my family and I have been here for over 30 years and have built, sold and purchased several properties in that time. Call today to discuss your next move.

In January 2010 I joined the Portland Seaview Real Estate team in the area of administration. My primary role is personal assistant to Allan Barrett but also includes administrative support to the property sales staff and property management. My previous employment has been predominately in administration and education, and since joining Seaview I have completed further study in IT and Business Administration. Outside of work my time is consumed by family and involvement in sport which leaves little time for anything else. I enjoy Portland Seaview Real Estate for its friendly enjoyable environment, the type and variety of work I perform in my role and the philosophy and integrity behind the business.

In December 2014 I joined the team at Portland Seaview Real Estate in the position of Receptionist and have recently been promoted to Holiday Rental Manager. Prior to this I had worked in the hospitality and financial planning industries where I have learnt a variety of skills and high quality customer service that have made the move to Real Estate fairly smooth. I gained my Agents Representative Certificate in 2015. In taking on this role, I look forward to continuing the friendly, reliable service to our holiday guests and landlords and going above and beyond standard expectations means our guests return to use our service knowing that they will receive the same service each time. I believe that the quality and professional service provided by Seaview Holiday Stays, coupled with the variety of accommodation available will keep visitors coming back to Portland time and time again.

I made the move to Portland Seaview Real Estate to take up a position as a part-time Administration Assistant in May 2008. Having worked previously in the banking industry for 17 years (both here in Portland and in the Geelong area) and in financial services/real estate, I deliver high quality customer service. The categories of reception and administration cover my job description, as well as all manner of accounts and finances and property management relief. Between a husband and 3 young children, renovating our house (slowly!) and my love of tennis, life gets very hectic. I like my job because the staff and bosses here at Portland Seaview Real Estate are all genuine people who care and make the work place a really enjoyable place to work.

I recently relocated to Portland with my family from the bayside suburbs of Melbourne, for a change of lifestyle and to be more community minded. I have spent my career so far working in operations and warehousing management within rapid growth small companies, as well large scale businesses. I have always had a keen interest in the real estate industry, and am thrilled to be working with the personable and focused Seaview team here in Portland. In my own time, my family and I like to make the most of what Portland has to offer; getting outdoors in the amazing natural environment, being part of our great community and exploring the region. I like to think I am an approachable and professional Property Manager, so please do contact me for any queries relating to Portland’s rental market.

Originally born in India my family moved to Portland when I was 4 years old, and I have stayed ever since. I have recently joined the Portland Seaview team in the role of Property Assistant. Prior to this I have worked in various jobs including administration, dog grooming, and assistant manager for 12 years on a local dairy farm with 1400 head of cattle. So I know what dedication and hard work is! I have raised 3 wonderful children and have recently become a 'Nanny', which I'm loving. My spare time is spent enjoying time with my family, showing and breeding my dogs, and breeding Stud Dorper Sheep.

I moved to the district 30 years ago and have been working in Administration roles for the last 20 years so I am a well known smile around the town. My husband and I have only ever dealt with Seaview Real Estate for our property needs and have huge respect for them, so when the employment opportunity arose I jumped at the chance to be part of a great team. I have recently completed my agents representative course and am constantly learning, but I'm looking forward to keeping my reputation as a person that will go over and above for clients and make their first point of contact a pleasant experience. I love Portland so when I'm not working I enjoy being actively involved in the community and spending time with my family, dogs and grand kids.

I have recently relocated back to Portland with my 8 year old daughter so she can grow up here surrounded by beautiful nature and the great community vibe, just as I did. I come from a strong customer service/administration background having been an office manager for a couple of different companies plus in a customer experience role for shopping giant, Westfield. I first experienced the world of Real Estate in 2015, obtaining my Agents Representative Certificate and working mostly within residential/commercial rentals. I recently joined the team here at Portland Seaview Real Estate as Sales Assistant in a part time capacity. I am excited to grow in my role and am dedicated to doing it well. I love the Portland area and look forward to meeting and providing great service to more of the locals.
