Agents in Won­der­land

Whitsunday Times - - FEATURE | HORSE LOVER HAVEN AT NEW ESTATE -

TELFORD RISE real es­tate agents Sharon Dews­bury and An­drea Clarke have more than 25 years of ex­pe­ri­ence be­tween them and have sold ev­ery­thing un­der the sun.

They both come from farm­ing back­grounds in New Zealand.

“It’s a whole other world out there,” Ms Clarke said.

“It can of­ten be over­whelm­ing. A lot of non-farm­ers buy acreages for a life­style change, it’s very com­mon, but there are a few things you need to wrap your head around. We can in­tro­duce you to what you need to know and guide you in the right di­rec­tion.”

For the both of them, there is no bet­ter place to sell real es­tate than the Whit­sun­days.

“I think it’s the di­ver­sity in the peo­ple and prop­erty avail­able,” Ms Dews­bury said and Ms Clarke agreed.

“You can’t work in real es­tate if you’re not a peo­ple per­son,” she said.

With more and more new­com­ers choos­ing to live in the Whit­sun­days each year, First Na­tional is adamant there is some­thing for ev­ery­one.

“It re­ally is one of the most di­verse re­gions in Australia – if you are look­ing for prime land op­por­tu­ni­ties we have wa­ter­front blocks, res­i­den­tial house blocks and ru­ral land,” Ms Clarke said.

“We’re like walk­ing, talk­ing lo­cal di­rec­to­ries. A lot of peo­ple come to the re­gion and they don’t want to read a bro- chure full of maps but they do want to know the best schools to send their chil­dren or where to get a mas­sage,” Ms Dews­bury said.

“They want some­one real to connect with who knows and un­der­stands the re­gion and that’s just an­other part of our job that we love.”
