Kent Reed

General Manager & Senior Conveyancer

Your Trusted Property Duo - Kim and Kent, a dynamic husband-and-wife team with over 25 years of experience navigating the exciting world of property. Our journey began in Parkdale, and over the years, we've expanded our footprint to Chelsea, Rye, Carnegie, Cheltenham, Brighton, and, most recently, we've set up shop in the Concourse in the picturesque Beaumaris - just a stone's throw away from the bay.

Kim brings a wealth of knowledge from various realms within the property industry. From legal work in conveyancing, to stints in banking and finance, and even real estate ventures, she's seen it all. Her expertise covers the entire spectrum of property dealings, making her an invaluable asset in any transaction.

With a solid foundation in the building industry, Kent has spent two decades in a successful trade business. His extensive experience in construction, combined with knowledge of business management, made him the perfect partner for Kim in growing their conveyancing business.

Our joint experience includes buying and selling our own properties, engaging in new builds and renovations, and venturing into property development and subdivisions. This broad perspective allows us to approach every aspect of the property market with insight and innovation. When we're not immersed in the world of property, you can find us enjoying a variety of outdoor activities. Whether it's exploring new destinations abroad or closer to home, our family and friends are at the core of our lives, and we believe in finding a balance that allows us to appreciate both work and play.
