Once you move past that distinctive, character-filled Irish brogue, the first thing you notice about Stephen is his infectious sense of humour and genuinely warm approach to everyone he meets.
Having come from a background in civil construction, Stephen joined his wife, Kathleen in 2016 in search of a new lifestyle where they could share their passion for building a successful business, whilst making a positive difference to the lives of others.
The small coastal town of Yeppoon may suggest a sleepy, laid back lifestyle. But for Kathleen, it provided a foundation for who she was to become: one of Brisbane’s most successful business women.
Raised in an entrepreneurial family, Kathleen has made a career out of solidly watching the way people, property fluctuations, marketing and community engagement interact to provide a grounded, honest approach to selling houses that belies the often aggressive industry. For Kathleen, a sense of compassion, and a recognition that the wellbeing and connectivity of a suburb is paramount, has made her both approachable and successful.
Brisbane born and bred; Jules is all about bringing BIWR’s sense of honest endeavour, connectivity and transparency to her own dealings with clients. The part where people tell their stories, is the part where Jules truly understands their needs. Alongside BIWR’s friendly and supportive team, Jules offers a true sense of community, and not the cutthroat realtor ambition that some people think of.
Chloe is the epitome of aspiration and dedication. Graduating from school in 2018, she brings the youthful skip of genuine enthusiasm to the BIWR team. With a passion for the industry but, more importantly, a genuine desire to help people, Chloe initially approached Kathleen with a request for some work experience. In turn, she has seized the opportunity and proven an ideal addition to the team.
A bit of an international mixed bag (with the accent to prove it) Jacqui was born and bred a proud Scot, but spent some of her youth in Houston, Texas, before finally settling in the Inner West with her husband and children. An active member of the local community for the past 15 years, she has now spent more time in Australia than any other continent and truly calls this side of town home. As a mum of two busy teenagers, she is not new to the business of getting things done (or the juggle of balancing schedules). Her skills and commitment have brought another level of dynamism to the BIWR team.
Taking on the role of Portfolio Manager, Jacqui is your go-to when it comes to looking after your investment property and brings a wealth and variety of knowledge. Having been both a tenant and a landlord, she has seen things from both sides of the fence and draws on her experiences to understand your perspective. Her empathetic nature makes her an attentive Portfolio Manager to both landlords and tenant alike.
Born in the Swan Valley wine district of Perth, Megan is very much of the Customer Service vintage! Stepping into real estate in 2017, she is BIWR’s wearer of multiple hats, taking care of finances, admin, trusts, contracts and much more. No one day looks the same for Megan. The world of property allows her to work towards both individual and business success, whilst making every customer she speaks to feel like they are the most important person.
Compassionate, caring and highly organised, Megan loves books, travel, cooking and live music, but it’s the ocean that’s her happy place. When she isn’t taking a dip or delivering her best-in-class customer service, she is happy to work quietly in the background, supporting and uplifting those around her so they can become their best and shine.
