Fewer people have a family background more perfectly suited to pursuing a career in real estate than Georgia. Surrounded from an early age by the positive influence and exceptional work ethic of parents who operated a huge successful independent real estate agency, she has heard and spoken the language of property all her life.
In addition, her wider family's significant profile as bayside builders has further informed Georgia's decision to enter the industry. She is, nevertheless, an individual spirit who possesses tertiary qualifications in fashion and has previously spent almost a decade achieving exceptional success in the fast moving, intensely competitive retail fashion space.
Such a history points the way forward. Georgia's natural confidence and affinity for dealing with people is complemented by her market knowledge, some of which is acquired, much of which is instinctive.
Positive, energetic and ambitious, Georgia is clearly ideally equipped to provide clients with a rewarding real estate experience. She was born to do so.

"I love the feeling of helping a buyer purchase their biggest asset. The joy it gives them makes me feel so pleased to be part of the process."
In real estate, the buying and selling process is truly a sum of many parts, very often involving a number of overlapping procedures that lay the foundation for the final triumph. With so many of these items to attend to, many professionals can become caught up with ticking the boxes, following due process and in so doing, lose sight of the motivation behind the goal, the people behind the transaction. Not so with Jayde. Armed with her trademark vibrancy, authenticity and enthusiasm, Jayde navigates every step of the buying or selling process with the greatest care and attention to detail. Nevertheless, it's her open and honest, can-do approach that truly reflects her unique client service focus and elevates their real estate experience from satisfactory to outstanding. As her statement attests, Jayde's primary motivator is her clients' joy.
With experience in both Property Management and Sales, Jayde brings a very well informed perspective to her role as Sales Consultant. This is particularly important in the bayside market with its wonderfully diverse range of properties and participants. Her ability to quickly identify and understand a client's needs, draw on a range of property skills and create a successful outcome, all with the client's happiness in mind, distinguishes her as a true real estate professional.
When not at work, Jayde relishes the opportunity to indulge her love of drawing and exercise by playing netball and working out at the gym.
