I grew up on the South Coast of NSW and moved to Canberra in 2002. My mother Margaret Murphy was one of the first female licensed real estate agents on the South Coast, and had offices in Sanctuary Point, St Georges Basin and Huskisson. As a child I spent weekends helping in the office, and also worked as a property manager in the early 1990s at The Professionals in Huskisson where Mum was the licensee.
My official (paid!) working career began at the State Bank of NSW in Nowra when I was 15 years old. When I was 17 I purchased a block of land in St Georges Basin, and sold it at the age of 21 for a 300 percent profit. I used the proceeds from the sale to build my first home in Sanctuary Point. By my late 20s I had purchased my first investment property, and so my interest and passion for real estate began to take shape.
During my career which spans more than 30 years, I have worked in the finance, insurance and real estate industries. I spent eight years as the Principal of my own mortgage broking business, helping people to buy property and refinance their home loans. My specialty was advising clients with small-to-medium investment property portfolios.
This wealth of experience has given me the necessary tools and maturity to help people like you to achieve positive outcomes. I understand that everyone’s circumstances are unique, and I genuinely care about the people and families I help. My job is to assist you to achieve your goals and realise your dreams. I’m committed to providing you with an exceptional service experience, and my aim is to make sure that your needs are not only met but exceeded. I love coming to work every day and travelling around the Canberra region, meeting new people and looking at amazing homes and investment properties.
When I’m not at work, you’ll find me enjoying a walk on one of the many trails and pathways around the ACT, spending time with my kids, or socialising with friends at one of Canberra’s fantastic cafes or restaurants.
