Francene Storie

PRINCIPAL & DIRECTOR

Francene’s interest in property on the Sunshine Coast started at an early age being a fifth-generation local, in addition to growing up within a family real estate business which was established on the coast by her grandfather in the 60’s. After studying international business and law at university, Francene started her first job on the coast working in property development.

Stephen Gage

sales director

Growing up at Alexandra Headland in the 1970’s was an idyllic childhood, and apart from a few short periods in Brisbane and Melbourne, I’ve never really left. After finishing school, I pursued a career in Banking and Finance, completing a Degree in Business and a Grad Dip in Finance and Investment along the way.

The last eight years of this thirty year career were spent as a Real Estate Specialist for Westpac’s Sunshine Coast Commercial Banking unit, so I believe I’ve got a good understanding of the nuances of the local property market.
