Allies Across The Tasman

New Zealand, you called it. We are not true Kiwis! We snuck our way into New Zealand back in 2008 and made our mark with our bright Orange and Blue buildings. We soon learned of the patriotism that binds New Zealand, a very big Kudos to your country. There is no doubt us Aussies could learn a thing or two about your commitment to invest in your own homegrown country… but, here me out.

Can I Move Home During Covid?

There is moving house, then there is moving house during a global pandemic. If you are like me and recently settled on a property you may know this feeling all too well. Quite frankly you probably deserve a medal.

Take one of life’s known stressors like selling a home, buying a home, or moving, shake it around and inject it with a fist full of steroids and that’s what moving might feel like right now. All around us there is change. Retail is facing closures, travel restrictions are being enforced and we all have a personal radius of 1.5 metres!

To quote Star Trek, “it’s life Jim, but not as we know it“!

If moving is on the cards for you or you know someone moving, please read on.
