Hello & welcome!
I’m Bron, lovely to meet you.
The combination of my love of the beautiful Sunshine Coast, passion for helping clients make the right decision in their move, and my own extensive experience buying and selling real estate, has inspired me to establish Home Scouts.
While I work in the property industry, I am really here to help people like you make it easier to move to the Sunshine Coast. Having been a Sunshine Coast resident for a long time now, I have seen how hard it can be if you’re not a local to make the move here. It revealed to me a need for those relocating or buying here to have someone really in their corner through that process – someone who’s on the ground, knows the ins and outs of the Sunshine Coast, understands the property market, and only has your best interests at heart.
The Sunshine Coast has been a home for me for over 30 years – from a holiday place at Noosa when I was young, to my family moving to the southern part of the Coast when I was a teenager, and ultimately myself moving here 10 years ago. I have explored different parts of the coast at many different stages through my life, and now I love enjoying the coastal lifestyle with my husband and two children.
I’ve always been interested in real estate investment, planning and design, and how developments and infrastructure can create value opportunities for properties.
My first foray into real estate began over 25 years ago while I was at University in Brisbane. I was 21 and had secured money for a deposit to purchase a little townhouse in inner Brisbane. With a mortgage at that age, I was very focused on making my corporate career in marketing a success to pay the first property off, but all the while was watching property prices and the property market. A little while later I moved to London with work and spent 4 years over there as a lot of Australians do, returning to find the property market was going through another boom.
Back in Australia, I spent time working as the Business Development Manager at a major planning and design firm – a perfect role for me which combined my career and personal interest in property and real estate. During that time, I kept my eye on what was being planned for Brisbane and saw an opportunity to buy in the inner city suburb of Woolloongabba which back then wasn’t very popular Friends and family thought I was crazy to buy there, but sure enough, over a few years, significant infrastructure was announced around that area including rezoning which created a great value opportunity that I then was able to advantage of – and involved a very unique story of a subsequent simultaneous sale and purchase and my own little subdivision in the CBD fringe suburb of Spring Hill.
When I met my future husband many years ago, he was a coast boy and I knew that ultimately the Coast would become home again. This gave me another opportunity to use my property knowledge and skills to successfully secure our Noosa home. This proved to be great timing as it was in the middle of the GFC so we were able to take advantage of the buyer’s market at the time. We have spent 10+ years here now, and love everything that the Sunshine Coast lifestyle has to offer. This is the main inspiration behind becoming such passionate advocates of helping those who want to relocate make a seamless transition.
I love working one-on-one with clients throughout their journey and really getting to know them, understanding exactly what they’re looking for and taking the patience and time to make sure their purchase is the right one for them. For all, this is a journey, some longer than others, but I am committed to supporting you for the duration. I selectively only work with a small number of clients at a time, to make sure you get the best service and outcomes.
