MEET PRDNationwide Tannum Sands owner and principal Deardrie Keleher.

Deardrie features in Agent Insight in Domain.

This week she shares her knowledge on the current market conditions and why Gladstone is the best place to be.

What is your role?

I'm the owner and principal of PRDnationwide Tannum Sands. I bought the business in November 2010 and, since then, I have grown the rent role that incorporates Boyne Island, Tannum Sands, Turkey Beach, Bororen and Miriam Vale.

I'm also a committed sales agent in the office with a strong variety of properties to offer.

Why did you decide to enter real estate?

I have always been drawn to the real estate industry. From buying, selling and renovating several of my own properties, it was only fitting that I turn my passion for real estate into a career. I have a strong commitment and desire to work with people in achieving their real estate dreams, whether it is buying their first home or securing financial stability through investment properties.

What have been some of the highest points in your career?

Purchasing the PRDnationwide office in Tannum Sands and being able to offer my daughter a job working alongside me.

Also, selling a million dollar property on The Oaks Rd, Tannum Sands, and being able to service Turkey Beach, Bororen and Miriam Vale region.

The current market has encouraged first-home buyers to enter into the market due to house prices becoming more affordable.

This is a very exciting time for me as I absolutely love being a part of finding a special home for someone to call their own.

Is now a good time to buy or sell?

With the Gladstone market offering some of the most affordable and diverse properties we've seen in years, now is the best time to buy.

It's no secret the Gladstone market has experienced reduced prices.

However, this has generated increased flexibility from vendors in negotiating price, and confidence and opportunity for first-home buyers, owner occupiers or people wanting to upgrade.

The relaxed lifestyle and diversity in property for sale makes this region an ideal place to purchase.

Whether one is looking for ocean views, a large acreage, land to build on or an established home close to amenities, the Gladstone market has property to cater to all needs and budgets.

It's very exciting to be a part of the ever-changing Gladstone market and negotiating the best outcome for both parties.
