On my playlist

It’s an eclectic mix of old time favourites like Fleetwood Mac, AC/DC and the Stones thru to newbies like the Teskey Brothers, Ocean Alley and Winston Surfshirt.

Binge watching

I love a great series and have a habit of watching multiple shows at the same time, but anything that’s based on real life events gets me hooked every time. I’m currently watching Chernobyl and Black Mirror as well as Making a Murderer and then mixing in some Queer Eye for the straight guy.

Book I’m reading

I’m never quite able to read a full book and my family will vouch for this but I have attempted a fair share over the past year including Jimmy Barnes - Working Class Boy, Stephen Hawking - Brief answers to the big questions and Stuart Coupe - Roadies the secret history of Australian Rock‘n’Roll

Favourite restaurant/cafe

I have too many to mention and coming from a European background food is in my genes. Kneading Ruby, Crooked River Winery and the German Club are all in my Top “Go To” spots for all different reasons and my fav Cafes would be Minnamurra Cafe, Kiss & Drop and Cordeaux Caffeine.

On my bucket list

To see where my parents and grandparents grew up in Europe, one day. I’d love to actually finish a book from cover to cover without picking up another. Donate more time to helping people without a home, or safe place to sleep.

I decided to work in Real Estate because

It’s one of the most rewarding experiences being able to help people in stressful situations. I genuinely LOVE what I do and am blessed to have amazing people around me each day who are equally passionate and driven to be better.

My perfect Sunday looks like

It’s always a sacred Family Day! Sleeping in and not having any plans for the day, just going with where our moods take us is the BEST... Start the day with a good coffee, followed by a nice country drive down the coast or up to the Southern Highlands for a day trip.

Top local spot

I love the South Coast, it’s so pretty and a slower pace of life than the city. Honestly I love nothing more than being at home, it sounds boring but I really don't get to spend much time at home, so it's always my top spot.

Laila Dahab

Sales Agent

On my playlist

Depending on how I’m feeling I’ll listen to different types of music, but at the moment my playlist has a lot of Little Dragon, Boy and bear, Sampa The Great, Running Touch, Toro y Moi.

Binge watching

Can never watch just 1! I’m currently in the middle of watching The Handmaids Tale but usually I’ll watch anything Sci-fi. Loving Black Mirror at the moment, and also a German sci-fi thriller called ‘Dark’ about time travel.

Book I’m reading

To be honest I don’t read too much, I like to read online articles sometimes and listen to podcasts from time to time, BUT one of my friends just gave me a book called ‘What a time to be Alone’ by Chidera Eggerue about self-improvement and self-love that I’m really enjoying.

Top local spot

There’s a beautiful spot on the coastal track off the cliff at Otford with amazing views, but anywhere surrounded by greenery or near a beach is perfect for me.

Favourite restaurant/cafe

I love Babyface Kitchen, Rookie Eatery, Sakuri Sushi. My favourite café was Son of a Gun, unfortunately just closed, but close second would be Quay Canteen.

My perfect Sunday looks like

Going for a brunch/coffee in the sunshine, visiting my family and a couple of afternoon drinks with friends.

On my bucket list

I cannot wait to visit Japan, I love how quirky it seems and the food would be incredible! I graduated with a Bachelor of Social Work a few years ago and would love to complete my Masters/ PHD, eventually!

I decided to work in Real Estate because

I enjoy meeting different people and helping people, I also love to be challenged, enjoy a fast paced work environment and being able to be out of the office is a bonus!

Natalie Betschwar

Marketing Director

On my playlist

always a mixed bag. I love 60’s/70’s music and 90’s grunge. Varies from heavy rock to chillout playlists depending on my mood.

Binge watching

What haven't I binged watched lately is more like it. Will quite happily admit I love all the Real Housewive's franchises, love "Better Things" and a good NetFlix doco.

Book I’m reading

I just finished "Boy Swallows Universe" by Trent Dalton and I can't recommend it more highly. Such a beautiful book and his writing is superb, it was an absolute pleasure to read. Definitely think this one will become a movie.

Top local spot

I love being by the ocean and the Farm at Killalea makes me feel like I’m miles away from everything.

My perfect Sunday looks like

a nice sleep in then a late breakfast out with my boys. I am a fan of an old school Sunday Drive and then a lazy afternoon reading or watching a movie together with a beautiful wine to top it off.

I decided to work in Real Estate because

I love that no two days are exactly the same. I enjoy meeting people and hearing their stories, plus I am obsessed with design and styling. I am lucky that I get to embrace the different aspects of myself and what I love and channel that into the business. We really are privileged to help people move into the next chapter of their lives.

On my bucket list

Europe. I know it'll be a while but once everything opens back up again and we are free to travel, Italy and Greece are right up there.

Favourite restaurant/cafe

Book I’m reading

I am currently reading a booked called ‘Not a diet book’ by James Smith, no-nonsense approach to a healthy lifestyle, while taking down all the Instagram influences diet and work out fads.

Top local spot

The place I can most relax is Sandon point, I could sit down there all day watching the surfers and ocean – so peaceful!
