Interview: Simone Bell, New Home Specialist

In getting to know our staff, we throw them a few questions so you can get to know them too!

Q.If you could write your own job title that best describes what you do here, what would it be?

Ok, I would say my title would be Dream Participant – because buying your first home, or adding to an investment portfolio is part of the dream. It’s exciting, and daunting at the same time. I understand the investment, and I love being part of that planning and decision making.

Q. Where on the coast do you live and what is your favourite room in your home?

I originated from Sydney, and moved to Carters Ridge, in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland back in 2002. Rather than a favourite room – I’m going to say my favourite piece of furniture. We bought a big 10 seater dining table years ago (which can comfortably fit around 14!) We had a regular ‘Sunday night dinner’ which started many years ago with a couple of friends. The group grew, kids grew up and brought partners, it shrunk again as empty nesting started. That table has held plenty of themed dinners – Greek feasts, nacho nights, pizza’s, pasta nights, BBQ’s, and pretty much any other food you can think of. But the best thing it’s seen is year after year of laughter and memories. God, I feel teary now!

Q. What do you enjoy most about the job you do?

I love seeing peoples faces when they realise that their dream of being in their very own home really can come true.

Q. What are the values that drive you?

Honesty, integrity and respect – You get back what you give. I remember I wagged school once when I was a teenager, and came home and told my Mum because I couldn’t cope with the feeling of guilt.

Q. What is your favourite quote?

People will forget what you said, People will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel – Maya Angelou
(this is a hard one – because quotes are my most favourite thing in the world!)
