Same familiar faces in beautiful Killcare
She counts herself as lucky that she gets to work in real estate in the stunning Killcare Peninsula on the Central Coast, just an hour and a half from the Sydney CBD.
As the incoming selling principal and owner of Ray White Killcare Peninsula, Ms Turner has been in real estate for the past 16 years.
Ray White NSW chairman Stephen Nell said he feels blessed that someone like Lea Turner wanted to own a Ray White franchise.
“It’’s truly such a sign of confidence that we continue to attract such high calibre people. I want to thank Kerrie Ryan for all her years in our family group who is now passing the baton to Lea in such a beautiful part of New South Wales.
“We’ll help you and support you Lea, as we’re in this real estate journey together.”
The peninsula encompasses Killcare, Killcare Heights, Hardys Bay, Pretty Beach and Wagstaffe. There’s six surfing beaches, dramatic coastal cliffs, with the ocean on one side plus the tranquility of sheltered bays and waterways on the other.
It’s close enough to everything for ease of living – but far enough away to escape.
Born and bred on the Central Coast, Ms Turner actually started her property career on the Lower North Shore in Sydney with Ray White when she moved there in 2000.
She moved back to the Central Coast in 2012 to work for Fairfax Media so she knows how vitally important a good marketing campaign is to sell property.
“I had a very good business relationship with one of my favourite accounts which was Ray White Killcare and over a lunch one day (principal) Kerrie Ryan mentioned she was looking to sell her business,” she said.
Fast-forward to June 2017, and Lea Turner will take over Ray White Killcare from July 1, and former principal Kerrie Ryan will stay on to sell properties for all her clients she has built up over 20 years.
“We are the same familiar faces in Killcare,” said Ms Turner, of her team of five staff.
Killcare Peninsula has been a holiday destination for many Sydneysiders as a popular spot since the 1930s.
“There was the Blue Mountains or Killcare for people wanting holidays with a tree change or a sea change. There’s lots of Sydney people who have been coming here for years, plus there’s a steady migration of younger buyers who have come here after being prices out of the Sydney market,” Ms Turner said.
“It’s simply so beautiful here and it’s only an hour and half to Sydney by car or the fast train to central will take just over an hour.
“There is a big commuter community who live here and commute to Sydney for work.”
Ms Turner said her immediate goal was to have a smooth handover transition and then work towards her goal of being the number one agency in Killcare.
If you need some time away from the gridlock and hectic pace of life, then Ray White Killcare has an extensive range of holiday accommodation available at all times of the year.
But you better get in quick if you want to book for Christmas, as it’s such a sought-after destination and books up very early.
