Is Your Home Making You Sick?
Is your home making you sick? You may not know it but while you are breathing in and out each day tiny mold particles may be infecting your body. Little do we know but in some places all types and colours of mould that aren’t visible to the human eye may be hiding in your house and causing health problems. I learnt a lot from this interview and I’m sure you will too. If you have been experiencing chronic fatigue, brain fog, headaches, eczema to name but a few little known reactions to mold then listen up….Michael Rubino author of Mold Medic tells me what and how you can do to get your health back by thinking and addressing mold. Michael is passionate about this subject and has put his heart and soul into helping people get better by fighting the often invisible invader in their home.
Tiny House Movement with Julie Jacobson
As the housing crisis reaches non affordability; the frustration rises. For many owning a tiny house could be the answer they have been looking for and what’s more you can pick it up and go if you change jobs, lovers, study or just want a different view! The lack of clarity around tiny homes and where they stand legally within the resource management plan and other acts needs to recognise the benefits that this type of housing may provide. People who desire to have their own tiny home legally are stressed and something so simple in concept seems fraught with problems. The ideas of how we live needs to reflect the society and community we now live in.
Meet Julie Jacobson; a passionate crusader changing this for the good of all kiwis. With her entrepreneurial business skills and humanitarian heart she talks to me about what she is doing to change things for our future.
The Tidy Lady
Liz Bradley is known as the Tidy Lady. She assists clients to dispose, declutter, remove, create storage and to free themselves of “stuff”. Now more than ever when people have been confined to their homes in 2020 the “stuff” problem is in their face. We have become such consumers it is driving us nuts. Liz has seen it all and is calm, collective and confidential. Liz is an ex librarian so she knows that all things have order. Oh and if you are thinking of selling but don’t know where to start to get the house ready and move on; Liz may just be your starting point.
Young Investor Gets Onto the Property Ladder
Anthony Appleton-Tattersall is the perfect example of a young investor making sacrifices to get onto the property ladder. At only around 30 years old he has bought and sold a few investment properties to secure his future and shares his knowledge. Anthony specialise in property in his own accounting business. Anthony shares what he learnt and why he believes property is still a great investment and the sacrifices you have to make along the way. My advice is do your research, ask questions and do your due diligence before you do anything.
The House Flipper
Not often I get to talk to such an experienced young successful entrepreneur. Being female and working your own business in a male dominated area needs the smarts and Dominique Gunderson certainly has a wealth of knowledge and experience in real estate and property starting from when she was just 16 years old. Learning the ropes from other professionals in all facets of the property industry she now runs her own renovation/house flipping company and even employs her dad as a project manager - a role she didn't take lightly.
At just 22 years old this young, beautiful Californian looks like she's just come off the beach and is pretty laid back; but don't be fooled she knows how to negotiate and how to do the business! She is now a full time renovator with passion, drive and a quiet sensibility about her. I hope you enjoy finding out more. Warning... Kiwis just don't be jealous about the prices she is going to tell you about lol!
Open Home Protocol
Manners go a along way and it is no different when you go to an open home. You are entering someone’s personal space and in some cases they have lived their entire lives. A real estate agent is there to represent the owner to get the best outcome for them. If you are a big mouthed nosey, nothing better to do type with no coin in your pocket… best you stay home!
