Undoubtedly one of the most experienced property professionals in the Bayside area and arguably one of the most highly credentialed in Melbourne, Simone Buckley brings 30 years of hands-on expertise to her leadership of the Buxton Sandringham Property Management team.
Moving into the industry straight from school, Simone has built a lifelong career on providing impeccable care of her clients...an approach that has earned her a reputation for integrity and efficiency and respect of her peers. Leading the team with absolute professionalism, Simone is known for her ability to inspire great performances from her portfolio mangers and induce on-going loyalty in her clients - many of whom have stayed with her through the lifetime of their investments.
While Simone's leadership sets the tone for the team, she is never less than actively involved in the day-to-day running of the business. She enjoys many aspects of her role, especially helping clients to relocate with minimum stress and worry. Simone believes there is nothing better than a happy tenant who is settled into their home and a landlord who is happy that their property is in the hands of a good agent. Above all else, she's a believer that most challenges can be met by simply picking up the phone and talking through the issues.
A Bayside local all her life, Simone is a "Firbank old girl" and "Haileybury mother" who is connected to the community through friends, family, education and sport. Married for more than 25 years to a similarly well-grounded Baysider, Simone's weekends typically involve a taxi-round of basketball at King Club, netball at Thomas St and football at Trevor Barker Oval. But weekends aren't just about ferrying kids and watching sport, Simone maintains work-life balance with a true Bayside edge - with regular clifftop runs balanced by strolls along the beach with her family!
