New Beginnings at RIVERSTONE RISE in 2019

By January 8, 2019News & Events

It is with great pleasure that we welcome Lyndall Soetens to the LOCATIONS estate agents team onsite at the Riverstone Rise Sales Office.

Getting to know Lyndall

I am a proud Queenslander born in Brisbane!  My very first job was with a real estate company based at Ashgrove in Brisbane. I later married and joined the Australian Industrial Relations Commission. That was the grounding of my professional career in Industrial Relations and Human Resources.

Spanning blue & white collar industries within both the public and private sectors across Australia, my career included a 9 year stint based in Darwin before relocating to Brisbane.  In 2012 I took up an IR role with Gladstone Ports Corporation and subsequently worked on Curtis Island within the LNG industry again in Industrial Relations/HR.  At the end of the construction phase, I joined Gladstone Regional Council in Human Resources but I also dipped my toes into hosting a beautiful Display Home for one of Gladstone’s award-winning builders, Tenheggeler Homes.  I just loved it – I finally decided to take a giant leap away from IR/HR and jump in my long-held love of real estate.

I was fortunate enough to join Locations Real Estate and through it, Devine Homes’ Masterplan Community, Riverstone Rise at Boyne.

Now that I’ve made the leap into real estate, I couldn’t be happier and am already enjoying my new incarnation.  Lots to learn and well on the way.

Point of Difference

My goals in this new venture include getting to know and be part of the business and residential community and its surrounds.  I will be working to attract and assist all of our clients, those existing and those yet to come, with the purchase of their selected block of land and helping them anyway I can through the design, construction and completion stages of their chosen new home.

I was involved with the design of each of the 5 homes I was lucky enough to build over my life.   Buying land and building a home is the most expensive venture in one’s life but it is also one of the most exciting and rewarding.

For me, it’s not just about selling someone a block of land. The old saying is….your home is your castle.  It is so accurate.  It’s in my nature to want to help others …. So it goes without saying.   I am going to love helping others to buy their land, build their castle and watch them enjoy the entire experience.

2019 Projects

This year we are looking forward to big things at Riverstone Rise including our new community engagement programs such as the book exchange, notice board and exclusive resident sponsorship program.  Last year we relaunched the Christmas Lights Competition which will continue in 2019 – so start planning your display!  We are also looking for feedback from residents to improve the services and facilities within Riverstone Rise.  Please feel free
