Saik makes the right move

Canning Gazette - - ROSSMOYNE WATERS -

LO­CAL accountant Saik Kee says that af­ter 40 years in her orig­i­nal home in Wil­let­ton, she has cer­tainly made the right move to a whole new life­style next door at Ross­moyne Waters Aus­tralis Apart­ments.

She said the Ross­moyne Waters man­age­ment team’s clearly demon­strated al­tru­ism made her de­ci­sion eas­ier.

“The move to an apart­ment life­style was a very con­sid­ered one for me,” she said.

“As an accountant I be­lieve strongly in do­ing your re­search, un­der­stand­ing the fi­nan­cial im­pli­ca­tions on all de­ci­sions, ask­ing lots of ques­tions and com­par­ing op­tions.

“When I met Aus­tralis vil­lage man­ager Daniel, I could im­me­di­ately see theirs was a very dif­fer­ent ap­proach to that of other re­tire­ment vil­lages I’d in­ves­ti­gated.

“They just seemed fair and were ab­so­lutely clear in de­scrib­ing the fi­nan­cial ar­range­ments, in­clud­ing all en­try, man­age­ment and exit fees, which were very rea­son­able.

“The price was right for me given the cur­rent and fore­see­able mar­ket conditions.

“But what struck me most was the gen­uine al­tru­ism and sense of care at the heart of what was es­sen­tially a com­mer­cial trans­ac­tion.”

Saik came to Aus­tralia as a stu­dent in the 1970s, qual­i­fied as a CPA and went on to work in a pub­lic prac­tice and later in Perth’s cor­po­rate sec­tor.

“It took courage to move on from the only home I’d ever owned in Aus­tralia,” she said.

“Hav­ing raised my fam­ily there, a great deal of sen­ti­ment was at­tached to it.

“But the kids had grown and gone and I de­cided this is my time, time to do some­thing for my­self.

“I wanted to re­main in the sub­urbs and I love this area but I also knew there was more to life than look­ing af­ter an enor­mous gar­den ev­ery week­end.

“A whole new way of life, a new chap­ter is for me with an apart­ment life­style at Ross­moyne Waters.

“It’s a su­perb lo­ca­tion with easy ac­cess to pub­lic trans­port, close prox­im­ity to shops and Gar­den City is not that far away.

“Here I’m in a safe and se­cure en­vi­ron­ment in a leafy sub­urb close to the river and it is a beau­ti­ful build­ing with new con­cepts and mod­ern fa­cil­i­ties.

“I use the gym reg­u­larly and I had a go at lawn bowl­ing and mini golf; hon­estly you don’t need to go any­where, you can en­joy the re­sort life­style here ev­ery day.

“The lobby is gor­geous with its ar­chi­tec­tural fire­place where you can en­ter­tain vis­it­ing friends over cof­fee dur­ing win­ter.

“The apart­ments are very open, spa­cious and nat­u­rally well lit, so the at­mos­phere pro­vided is lovely and wel­com­ing.

“From my bal­cony I have stun­ning views of the city and Mt Henry Bridge; in fact that view has en­cour­aged a few of my friends to sub­tly in­vite them­selves over for the 2020 Aus­tralia Day Sky­works.

“The place is great for young and old alike; it is won­der­ful to see grand­par­ents and grand­chil­dren to­gether.

“There is a real sense of fam­ily and com­mu­nity; I am proud to be liv­ing here.”

Ross­moyne Waters chief ex­ec­u­tive Gary Blag­den

said more than half of Stage One of Aus­tralis was now called home by happy new res­i­dents and in­ter­est in the re­main­ing 29 twoand three-bed­room apart­ments from $475,000 to $845,000 was height­en­ing.

“We’re en­cour­ag­ing peo­ple to reach out to our vil­lage man­ager Daniel Gal­lop now and ex­pe­ri­ence the com­plex’s apart­ments and ameni­ties first-hand,” Gary said.

“All apart­ments are life­long lease with three choices of De­ferred Man­age­ment Fee geared to suit in­di­vid­ual cir­cum­stances.

“We’re craft­ing a har­mo­nious, pos­i­tive com­mu­nity here and we’re do­ing it in style”.
