Travel Blogger!

  Time to put my travel blogger hat on again. It’s been a while! We’re off today! Heading far away, to gaze at snowcapped mountains. It’s been such a full and exciting year, with my work and my boys’ busy lives. Now that big son has finished his schooling, and youngest has put in a

Home Straight

I worked through last Christmas. I was probably the only Real Estate Agent doing open homes on Christmas Eve. I had 8 groups through my evening Christmas Eve open … and I sold the property before the New Year! The biggest problem with property sales at that time of the year is finding a Conveyancing Solicitor who is

Shed Patina

Whilst away for a few days this past week, exploring my surrounds, I came across this dear little shed, perched up high with magnificent views of Lake Baroon and beyond. I fell in love with the colours and how they changed as the tree leaf shadows danced on it. A new decking structure had been added …

Yesterday Was A Great Day

It was full of beautiful colour … … and unwavering determination … … serious focus … … patience … … nerves … … personal bests … (a 10.83 for Vault!!!!) … fun and downtime … … healthy rivalry … that is really a friendship … … and love and pride that fills a mother’s heart

Savouring Little Moments

Work has been a little less frantic this week so I have really made an effort to slow down and live in the moment more. I do sometimes envy those who have days ahead of them with absolutely nothing planned! I could imagine it would be easier to savour the moments if they are slowly

A Beautiful Year

It’s coming up to a year since I launched my own Real Estate Agency, ‘Cape Cod Residential’. It has gone sooooo fast! It’s been a beautiful year …. beautiful clients, beautiful homes, beautiful shared moments, beautiful outcomes. I’ve put together some of my favourite staging and styling shots from over the past year, in the ‘montage’

In The Blink Of An Eye

My eldest son had his Year 12 School Formal last Friday. It only seems like yesterday he was this little man. In the blink of an eye. It has been such a privilege being Mum to my beautiful young men. Grade One! I bored everyone on the night with Instagram spam, so sorry if you have already

Anatomy Of A Perfect Day

Yesterday was perfect. It was my birthday. I had a wander before the dawn, to be alone and to be grateful. The tears came earlier than I thought they would. After I recovered from eldest son’s sentiments, my little one clutched his birthday card, saying, ‘now keep in mind Mum, while you are reading this, that

High School

 I am sure I am not the only school Mum who didn’t sleep last night. My baby is starting high school and I am scared and excited and a little bit sad to say good-bye to an era. The years are flying by and my little boys are growing into men. This first day of

About ‘A-M’

This is where I muse about home design, real estate, interiors and life with my boys. I am starting my next house build, 'The Next House That A-M Built', and hope to have some action on site in January 2018. While I am building I will continue to run my Real Estate agency, 'Cape Cod Residential', through which I stage, style and sell beautiful homes all over Brisbane, Australia. I have an unrivalled staging inventory which enables me to present all manner of homes in their absolute best light for sale. It brings me such joy to be able to do Real Estate so differently and achieve great results for my clients. I am so grateful to be living such a creative and exciting life ... that I have created through blood, sweat, tears and physio appointments!
