Meet the Team - Emily Bey, Sales Professional
Walnut Grove welcomed new Sales Professional, Emily Bey. We’ve taken a few minutes of Emily’s time to get her impressions of Walnut Grove and Retirement Living.
Before moving into Retirement Living Emily worked in a more traditional residential real estate setting, and made the move a couple of years ago to try something that was a little “more meaningful”.
“I’ve been in Retirement Living for a few years now, and I’m still so happy I made the move. At the risk of sounding a little cheesy - I love that I get to help people find their forever home. Residential real estate was more transaction based and less caring.”
“Walnut Grove stuck me the first time I visited, It’s a cute village, with front gardens bursting with flowers and colour; an idyllic community tucked away from it all. The village is small enough to be cosy, but big enough to have a thriving social calendar. When you’re in the village you feel like you’re miles away from it all, but head out the driveway and you realise all the amenities you need are right there. Sometimes it’s hard to believe that we’re only a few minutes from everything.”
There is a wonderful range of get-togethers, social events, and activities at Walnut Grove. One of the most popular is the exercise class on Tuesday mornings. Residents get a chance to have a chat and a catch up, while keeping active.
It’s not just classes on offer at Walnut Grove, as Emily explains. “There’s also our Benefits+ Health program with monthly health talks on a different subject each month. These are really popular with residents, along with the morning tea afterwards! The residents always tell me that they’ve learned something new.”
Emily has advice for anyone considering a move to retirement living: “My advice is always the same - come and visit. No website or photo or floorplan can do justice to the *feeling* you get when you walk into what could be your new home, especially one of the newly renovated villas at Walnut Grove.”
“And ask as many questions as you can, it doesn’t matter if you think they’re “silly questions”. Get all the information you need, to make the right decision for you.”

“Come and have a look; just do it! Residents are always telling me they wish they’d made the move years ago.” - Emily Bey, Sales Professional
