My Mother read an article to me in 1995 about a Conveyancer featured in the Sydney Morning Herald after I had completed my Accounting Degree: The article was about a Conveyancer operating her own business and opening up many files a month, being her own boss and enjoying what she did.
Always having an interest in property, renovation and legal terms - I mentally said right away this is the Profession for me. I then set about achieving my goals by funding myself through the Conveyancing Course (with no experience) at Macquarie University, passed all the exams and moved from Orange NSW to Sydney where I was employed by Jenkings Solicitors and Attorneys at Crow’s Nest for the Wondakiah project (300 off the Plan Apartments and 30 Marina Strata Leaseholds) at Wollstonecraft Bay. After 8 months I was appointed to head the Legal Department working with the Developer who was also a Barrister. We both respected, trusted and challenge each other; it was a good working relationship. We worked well as a team!
It was then I decided to open and commence my own Conveyancing Business from January 2001 and moved into a small office at Wollstonecraft.
It is amazing what full Trust does with a Client – Conveyancer relationship. I have been blessed to meet so many different people from all walks of life and adapt to their personalities with genuine support, concern and empathy. In a nutshell my work is providing ‘Asset Protection and Stress Management” for the biggest transactions of your Life.
