Asking $349,900

Driving onto this amazing property you will marvel at its privacy, seclusion and natural bushland located only 10 minutes to Wauchope and 20 from Port Macquarie.

As you continue driving through this tranquil property you will be impressed by the beauty of the tall timbered forest. Stopping at the first ridge, this clear high point is just waiting for a dream home to be built. On your way to the second ridge is a rainforest area loaded with palms, ferns and a water hole. Another place for you to build your dream home is on this vast flat area surrounded by beautiful trees offering total privacy. A small dam and a billabong complete this area.

Continue down to your private retreat and enjoy the absolutely peace and quiet of this restful area. Punctuating the serenity is your own private creek and plenty of trails for walking or horse riding. Pitch a tent, have a picnic or simply relax and enjoy the sheer awesomeness of this picturesque location.
This private retreat awaits your inspection.

This is hard to do within families as adult children with aging parents report that they “know” the desires of their parents, whereas in many cases their views don’t align with their parent’s wants and desires.  

Whilst children want to do the right thing by their parents, a combination of emotions and denial make for strained relationships and regret, causing much anguish, distress and sometimes an impasse.  So bring someone in, like the Downsizing Divas, who can bridge this gap.

Crisis-driven moves tend to result in stress and misery all round. Thinking ahead and introduce this topic as a part of a series of conversations is the key.

Apparently I have made it into the Getty Images "Best of News" photographs.
The Los Angeles Times did a few articles on me when I worked as a Realtor in Los Angeles and this was one of them.
