B. Ed | Lic. Real Estate, Principal Qld.
As the Principal and Managing Director of Networth Buyers Agents I can say I know the Brisbane Property Market like the back of my hand.
I have lived in S. E. Qld since the age of nine, I have watched the region develop and grow dramatically.
We have been buying property personally, and for our clients for over 30 years. That experience has allowed Networth Property to find, negotiate and settle many
excellent properties for our clients. The sort of property that will grow and increase in value over the years. We are very good at finding the gems.
In a way, buying property today is often something of a contest. The seller has the real estate agent representing them to achieve the highest price possible.
Until recently, the buyer was unrepresented and at a distinct disadvantage. Now that has changed. Networth is an independent buyers agent who is acting
for the buyer to source and buy property at the lowest price possible, and often “off market” . This significantly changes the dynamics of buying property well.
Our service will actively search and find the most desirable areas within each suburb and how to buy for capital growth and yield and how much to pay.
Local professional knowledge in a region, is your key to saving a great deal of time, frustration, money and effort.
As an ex Math teacher, I’m a numbers person and this has proved to be a tremendous benefit when buying property.
Twenty years ago I left the teaching profession and followed my passion for the property business. I explored many aspects of property; buy and hold strategies, structural and cosmetic renovations, subdivisions, house relocations & development.
It wasn’t until I engaged a buyer’s agent 15 years ago to successfully source property for me, that I understood that if I could benefit from this service
in a competitive market, so could others. So I became a buyers Agent. Now others can benefit from my experience.
Networth Buyers Advocates would love to help you with your next purchase.
So , please contact me to discuss any aspect of buying property for your home or as an investment.

Hi, I’m Wendy.
My property journey began at just 17 years of age when I landed a reception role at a local real estate office in Redcliffe on Brisbane’s north. I remember it as if it were just yesterday… The year was 1997 and it was my first Saturday morning on the job in real estate. Who knew this very day would define a career that has now spanned 20 years and counting. I guess no one ever grows up wanting to work in real estate, but for me, I took to it like a duck to water, and now, many years later, I’m potentially helping you to buy what could be your dream home, first home or perhaps your next investment property.
My journey to become one of Brisbane’s first Independent Buyer’s Agents has been somewhat typical to any long standing career in real estate. I started at reception, did a fair stint in property management, geared up to marketing… and then onto sales, all the while thinking, “”I could do this better””.
… and with that thought came the opening of my very first real estate office in Gladstone. It was September 2004 when Investwell Properties opened the doors to the Goondoon Street office with myself as Principal Licensee at just 23 years of age.
I’ve since owned two independent real estate offices, personally invested in numerous properties from residential houses to small scale unit developments and now, I’ve arrived at what I would consider my true calling… an Independent Buyer’s Agent, with Brisbane as my focus.
If you’re curious, you can learn more about my personal investment journey here.
But for now, thanks for stopping by. I look forward to working together soon.
One on One Personal Service is your ticket to a great experience in property.
I believe in old fashioned personal service and integrity. This means being available when your clients need you and doing what you say you’re going to do. Constant communication and always following through are high priorities when you work with me. I’ll play devils advocate where I need to, and I’ll inspire confidence in your decisions.
But don’t just take my word for it … here’s what my clients have to say …

From a young age real estate has been in my blood. Growing up in the St George and Sutherland Shire I was always interested in many aspects of this industry and how it worked.
There was also a strong interest and drive in helping others which led me to a 12 year career in the Police Force after leaving high school.
I loved the challenge of dealing with many different types of people under very stressful circumstances and found my strengths to be communication and empathy.
Deep down real estate was still calling so the next step was to work in sales and ultimately obtaining a full licence including as an auctioneer.
In 2006 I was introduced to a buyers agent and found this to be a role I could fully utilise my skills in building networks to make sure my clients got the best deal possible and took away the stress involved in these transactions.
I feel fortunate to have assisted clients for the past 11 years (over 1100 properties purchased) and now work with my son Lachlan to offer the highest level of service possible.
“”I am always availablefor my clients, including after hours and weekends. I believe this sets us apart from our competitors and leads to greater client satisfaction.””
