On my playlist

Been listening to a lot of vinyl lately and loving Leon Bridges, Teskey Brothers and The Black Keys.

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.

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. The one I did finish was The Storyteller: Tales of Life and Music by Dave Grohl which was a cracker.

Favourite restaurant/cafe

I have too many to mention and coming from a European background food is in my genes. I really enjoy Restaurant Santino and my regulars are Cafe Lechappe and The Hungry Monkey in Berry.

On my bucket list

To see where my parents and grandparents grew up in Europe one day. Donate more time to helping people without a home or a 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, 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 Henshaw

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!

Slav Djukic

Sales Agent & Auctioneer

On my playlist

I am still stuck in the 90’s and love a good “old school song”, whether it be pop or rock as long as it’s from the 90’s it’s on my playlist. Also, since I was born in Europe, I do tend to listen to some Balkan music from time to time.

Binge watching

At the moment I am really enjoying the series Loudermilk on Netflix, otherwise any form of true crime or drama series is my go-to.

Book I’m reading

Again, I am big on anything non-fiction or true crime. The last book I put down was 'A Child Called “It”', it is a harrowing, yet inspiring true story of a young boy’s childhood.

Top local spot

As long as I’m outdoors with the family, whether it be at the beach or in a park is all that matters but a standout is most definitely Murrays Beach.

Favourite restaurant/cafe

This is a tricky one, I love my desserts, so I tend to explore different cafés to see if I can come across the “Holy Grail” of desserts, I have come close but it was all the way in Tasmania and Europe!

My perfect Sunday looks like

Waking up nice and early, grabbing a coffee on the way down the South Coast and then enjoying the beautiful drive with my wife and kids to the spectacular water at Murrays Beach, it is stunning and definitely my “Happy Place”.

On my bucket list

Keep travelling the world! My young family and I love travelling and we have visited Europe on several occasions as well as Asia but our goal is to see as much of the world as we possibly can.

I decided to work in Real Estate because

It was through my own journey of purchasing my first property in 2012 that I discovered my passion for real estate, which set the wheels in motion for a career change and the rest is history.

Katie Cappetta

Operations Manager

On my playlist

I love lots of different types of music but mainly listening to Taylor Swift at the moment. I love listening to podcasts when driving too!

Natalie Betschwar

Marketing

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

Will quite happily admit I love all the Real Housewives franchises and a good Netflix doco/ murder mystery before bed which is kinda weird.

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 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 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

Along with absolutely everybody else, I want to go to Europe. The insta envy at the moment is real!

Favourite restaurant/cafe

Kneading Ruby... I love everything about this place from the food to the staff, it’s always amazing.

I love binge watching anything that’s so far from my normal world, I recently discovered Ozarks and finished all three seasons in about a week! Currently patiently waiting for new seasons of Queen Of The South and Animal Kingdom.

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.

Debutant for a date night dinner, Hone Café in Balgownie for brunch and amazing Souffle pancakes!

On my bucket list

More overseas travel when life goes back to normal! I would love to go to the Amalfi Coast one day. In the meantime would love to visit Tassie with the family.

I decided to work in Real Estate because

My older cousin was in real estate and I thought it looked so glamorous and exciting! 12 years later I’m still in real estate because I love the connections with you make with amazing people from all walks of life. 

My perfect Sunday looks like

A sleep in (which doesn’t happen often with a toddler!), a leisurely walk along the esplanade from Sandon Point to Woonona with coffee/ brunch at Ruby’s or Bulli Beach Café. Then a spot of shopping and spending time with family or friends in the afternoon/ evening would top it off!

Top local spot

I love little Austi Beach, it’s the perfect spot for a chilled day at the beach.

Binge watching

Top local spot

So many to choose from. My favourite local spot is the farm at Killalea, but you could also find me hanging with my best mate down at Kendall’s beach in Kiama.
