Sis­ters do­ing it for them­selves

Weekend Gold Coast Bulletin - - BUSINESS -

AN­NETTE Sin­clair, who runs an all-women Main Beach prop­erty agency, is ex­pand­ing the busi­ness by high-heel­ing it along the street – into a for­mer shoe shop.

The Main Beach Prop­erty Sales prin­ci­pal has bought the for­mer Maryon’s Shoes premises, a stroll away from her sales of­fice on the east­ern side of Ted­der Ave. The shop, a $950,000 buy, is to house an ex­pand­ing MBPS prop­erty man­age­ment busi­ness.

An­nette says the ex­pan­sion’s been ‘a work in progress’ for sev­eral months, one that’s re­sulted in the pur­chase of the Peter Cur­rie Real Es­tate rent roll. The move triples the num­ber of prop­er­ties in the MBPS man­age­ment port­fo­lio and comes with a bonus – 30-year in­dus­try ‘vet­eran’ Dian Cur­rie and daugh­ter Linda have joined the Sin­clair team.

Their pres­ence lifts the num­ber of women in the agency to nine.

“The all-women line-up hasn’t hap­pened by de­sign – just by chance,” says An­nette. “That said, our clients like it.”
