RELATED: Fashion Festival founder on why she loves the Sunshine Coast I was living in Indooroopilly when the Global Financial Crisis hit and my bank at the time said they were unable to fund anymore of my property projects unless I had a business with cash flow. I had gotten out of owning my own real estate business for about two years and all of a sudden, I found myself thrusted back into it. I purchased a rent roll in Nambour on the Sunshine Coast 10 years ago and relocated there. House with a mini-me cubby house What was the best piece of property advice you were give? You’ll love this house to the moon and back >>FOLLOW EMILY BLACK ON FACEBOOK<< I love the openness, it’s bright and airy and I love the view, I will never get tired of looking out across 10ha of parkland and the two lakes that this house backs on to.I love the location as it is perfectly placed; 10 minutes’ drive from Mooloolaba beaches, five minutes’ drive from the Bruce Highway, 40 minutes’ from Noosa, one hour to Brisbane and about 15 minutes’ drive from the hinterland and my real estate office.

I often say that in my past life I use to live in castle.Every time I step inside one, I feel an instant connection of being at home.If money was no option, I would buy a castle in France or England and spend six months of the year living between the Sunshine Coast and my castle. What do you love about your home? Where do you live and why? I live in a growth suburb which for me is great as my home continues to gain capital.It is a small community that is rapidly growing, you will always know projected growth when a fast food chain drop their restaurants in your area.It’s central to everything and has some of the best university and schools in the state just down the road.The best thing is the natural landscape and wildlife we get around here even though it’s turning into a little city, the council are very mindful of the kangaroos and other natives that live here.
