Rebecca shares local knowledge
Rebecca Reynolds - Sales Consultant, Halcyon Lakeside and Landing - shares her local knowledge of Bli Bli.
You grew up in the area, what do you love about it?
I know and love this area as I grew up in Pacific Paradise/Mudjimba, while my Dad lived in Bli Bli and I went to church and played a lot of inter-school sports in the suburb. I used to fish off the jetty as a kid with my Dad and three siblings and spent lots of time at the Bli Bli Castle too.
When I had my first child 10 years ago, we were living in Bli Bli so this place certainly holds some very special memories for me as I have watched it grow from a very small town to the thriving area we see today.
What do you love about your job?
One of the most important parts of my role (and the most rewarding) is being able to deliver happy outcomes to my homeowners and buyers.
I love seeing my buyers get excited to join our wonderful communities, it makes all the hard work worth it.
I love that I get to meet a range of different people that become friends once they move in. I get such a kick when I’m showing people through the community and they call out to me when they’re doing Zumba or bowls or just going for a walk.
How do you help Halcyon homeowners sell their home?
When a homeowner comes to sell their home, whether it’s to move to a different area or to another Halcyon community, I work alongside them from start to finish. From appraisal to help setting up their homes for sale, decluttering and organising photography or just have a cup of tea with them to allay any concerns they may have.
The difference in using a Halcyon consultant to a real estate agent is quite pronounced as many agents don’t understand the model. I love talking to potential buyers because I think the no entry or exit fees and no stamp duty model is brilliant.
We also understand the culture and the connection of the people in our community. We want to be able to introduce people who will add to the depth and strength of our communities.
What do you do outside of the gates?
My husband Luke and I have been married for 19 years and we are blessed with two sons Taj, six and Khan, 10. We also have a seven-year-old dog, Chief, who is a big softy as well as five chickens.
Rebecca’s top things to do in the central Sunshine Coast...
- We spend a lot of time swimming and surfing at North Shore, Mudjimba and Peregian beaches.
- We love the walk ways from Cotton Tree to Mooloolaba and the Marcoola/Mudjimba stretch.
- We love to eat out for breakfast after the beach at Cuba Street café in Marcoola, Mojo’s in Cotton Tree or The Attic Café in Alexandra Headland.
- The kids are huge fans of Aussie World of course, but they also enjoy the national parks in the hinterland and the Buderim Forest Park.
