About us

Your Northern Beaches property specialists

We see selling homes and managing property as the key that opens the door to your next step. So we’re committed to delivering the best results – because the more value we unlock in your property, the more beautiful your lifestyle will be.

Real estate – with a difference

As Northern Beaches property specialists we know about homes. A home is more than just a place to inhabit – it’s a place to relax, unwind, experience joy. It’s a place to bring family and friends, to share drinks and laughs. It’s a home that sits within a community, with unique experiences and conveniences. It’s a view that uplifts the spirit, or light streaming through the window that’s a balm for the soul.

It’s the details that make up a life well lived. And it’s those details that we celebrate.

An elevated experience

We deliver a unique combination of creative solutions, strategic thinking and an elevated experience. And above all, we get to know our clients, anticipating their needs before they express them, and treat every interaction with empathy and kindness. Because we believe a great life is about honest and genuine connections.

Focused on success, driven by passion

We’re proud to have over 25 years of experience in the industry. We’ve worked for the big agencies and we’ve built and sold successful businesses. Time and time again, we’ve exceeded expectations when it comes to sales and service. We’ve built and managed extensive property investment portfolios, and we’ve helped landlords maximise their investments and tenants enjoy their homes.

And because we know the industry, and we know our clients, we’re always innovating and coming up with different ways to serve our clients better.

We do what we say and we see the bigger picture. And we help you live your next stage in life – beautifully.

Home truths

“Every now and then, you come across an amazing service which not only delivers on every promise, they completely exceed expectations. We’ve recently had such an experience with Christine and Jo from RE Collective. They gave us excellent advice and support all the way and achieved a record rental in less than 24 hours. Amazing team!.”
“Christine Heywood managed an investment unit of ours for over ten years. In that time she was an absolute professional – never failing to follow up on any tenant issue, always achieving the best rental, properly vetting potential tenants and any repairs or maintenance was done quickly and at a very competitive price through her network of trades people. We have also recommended Christine to friends who have been similarly impressed with her service. If you are looking for an honest, competent, proactive, hardworking agent look no further than Christine Heywood.”
“Jo was our property manager in our rental for 3 years. As long time renters we have never, ever experienced such warm, kind, caring treatment from a property manager. She went above and beyond for us and by the end of our tenancy we considered her a dear friend. I could shout from the rooftops till I’m blue in the face telling everyone who would listen how wonderful she is. Could not recommend highly enough. If I could give more than 5 stars I would!”
