WELCOME

Alex Phillis Luxury Real Estate is the most innovative prestige property sales agency on the Gold Coast. Since starting his own agency some 5 months ago, ‘Alex Phillis Luxury Real Estate’, Alex has enjoyed considerable success given our size. We can’t, and don’t want to compete with the big impersonal national agencies in terms of sales numbers bragging.

Things like no untruths, personalised service, and innovative digital marketing, which is already creating 300% plus higher engagement views on REA than our competition. Most of all 100% completely satisfied Sellers and Buyers.

We have listed some incredible properties for sale and some price range properties for sale and enjoyed fast and best price in market sales results, which is good considering that we haven’t been in operation for a long time and we don’t have a massive database as yet. However we can offer bulldog sales tenacity and personalised family focussed service to both our Sellers and Buyers

Our association with the Bespoke Property and Lifestyle magazine reflects similar values and culture and always aiming to be the best.

Alex’s vision for the agency is to be a “Bespoke Agency” in all terms of the understanding and expectations of what a small personal family agency can provide.

APRIL 2018

The Gold Coast is a global events destination driving economic growth and prosperity. Hosting the Commonwealth Games is just the beginning of our event offerings to the rest of Australia and beyond.

Across the city, we play host to a year-round events calendar that keeps our visitors coming back and has us Way Ahead. For information on local events and things to do, visit wearegoldcoast.com.au

We’re on the world stage hosting major events like Quiksilver Pro, Bleach* Festival and the Gold Coast Marathon – to name a few. With 300 days of sunshine each year and a legacy of international events infrastructure, we are the perfect host. The new outdoor stage at ‘HOTA, Home of the Arts’ is the City’s heartland for cultural events within the theatre, dance and music scene. I encourage every Gold Coaster to jump online and take a look at the exciting events happening at HOTA over the next few months. Surrounded by parklands and a beautiful Surfers Paradise backdrop, it’s the perfect family day out on the Gold Coast. Visit hota.com.au for information.

Mayor Gold Coast


TOP BUSHWALKING TRAILS ON THE GOLD COAST WALKING SHOULD BE JILL CALLCOTT’S MIDDLE NAME BECAUSE SHE LIVES AND BREATHES IT.

She moved to the Gold Coast from the UK when she was 12 and attended Burleigh Heads State School back when it was okay to go school barefoot. Her love of walking grew over the years but deepened as her work took her overseas and she frequently she ate takeaway meals late at night. She was always looking for ways to walk it off and over the years noticed many people taking their morning or afternoon walk through corridors of hotels. Ms Callcott wanted locals and visitors to the Gold Coast to be able to explore the city on foot so she started a website, Walking The Gold Coast, where she records her walking activity and provides maps, photos and a running commentary of her adventures. “It is truly only by walking an area that you can get the essence of it, and compared to other parts of the world this is still a very safe area to enjoy nature through walking. The reality is there are some great bushwalks right here on the Gold Coast where you can soak up the tranquility of the bush and hear and see wildlife,” she said. “You don’t have to travel to the hinterland to enjoy it; most can be accessed by public transport and a short walk. In Burleigh alone you can criss cross from Burleigh Headland to Burleigh Ridge and on to Tallebudgera Conservation Park and back to Burleigh Village for lunch across 26km including back tracking, all while never being too far from a coffee.” Ms Callcott said Federation Walk was another example of a fabulous track where walkers travelled more than 8kms to the Seaway and back through bushland. The popular walk gave walkers the chance to soak up the local birdlife and stand on sand dunes while looking at a deserted and windswept beach. “Scanning the surround you’ll see the high rises of Surfers Paradise and behind the tops of high rises in Main Beach. After your bushwalk, take yourself off to Tedder Avenue for a refresh and relax. One thing we should remember is that bush walking quite often involves urban walking to, and this too can be rewarding, just getting out into another area away from your patch is good for you,” she said.


TOP 5 SHORT BUSHWALKING TRAILS ON THE GOLD COAST AS PICKED BY JILL.

TOP 5 LONG BUSHWALKING TRAILS ON THE GOLD COAST AS PICKED BY JILL

1. TALLEBUDGERA CONSERVATION PARK On the Burleigh Heads side you can view the pristine waters of Tallebudgera Creek; it’s also very quiet and full of birdlife particularly in the early morning.

1. COUGAL HIKING TRAIL (10KM) Mount Cougal borders Qld and NSW and the only guide is the barbed wire fence that separates the states. The terrain is diverse, a hiking pole is recommended and it’s not for the faint-hearted. Check with National Parks before embarking on this trail because storms can impact on the area and make sure the forecast is for a clear day.

2. PALM BEACH PARKLANDS There are two walks here, the first is Beree Badalla Boardwalk along Currumbin Creek and it’s best to do this during high tide to get the feeling you are walking on water. The next is Tarrabora Reserve; a small pocket of bushland right in the middle of the Gold Coast, wedged between the Gold Coast Highway and Currumbin Estuary at Palm Beach. 3. COOMBABAH LAKELANDS – SHELTER ROAD Insect repellent is a must and there is a short bushwalk before the boardwalk; which is a bright burnt orange colour and such a contrast to the surrounding mangroves. At the end of the boardwalk is a bird hide and the only sound is water lapping against the timber piers. 4. COUGAL CASCADES – CURRUMBIN VALLEY This is part of the Gold Coast Hinterland just a few kilometres up Currumbin Creek Road. A scenic winding road full of photo opportunities which finishes at the Springbrook National Park. The Mount Cougal Section a short bushwalk with cascading waterfalls and cool mountain air, a hidden gem that few Gold Coasters visit. 5. BURLEIGH HEADLAND – UPPER OR LOWER TRACK A short climb to Tumgun Lookout is worth the effort, views of the southern Gold Coast as far as the eye can see and the lookout on the north side is equally picturesque. The headland is also a refuge and feeding area for a variety of migrating birds, so keep an eye out for unique birdlife along the walking tracks.

2. FEDERATION WALK (7KM) Federation (Bush) Walk features headlands and windswept dunes, winding trails through groves of Macaranga trees and She-Oaks. The trail ends directly opposite south Stradbrook Island, which is only a short distance across the Seaway. 3. SOUTH STRADBROKE ISLAND You can walk right around South Stradbroke Island and while you’re totally isolated you’re only minutes from a refreshing beverage. Downside is the lack of transport access. The Island is 21km in length and 2.5km wide. 4. COOMBABAH LAKELANDS Only a stone’s throw from Harbour Town Shopping Centre, Coombabah Lakelands track is full of wildlife, bush and wetlands. Kangaroos are prolific, swamp wallabies are around and there are plenty of koalas to see. With over 1000 hectares of land you can choose how far to hike. It has an amazing diversity of bird and plant life and is arguably the best place to view koalaa and kangaroos in the region. 5. NERANG STATE FOREST Nerang National Park and Nerang State Forest is 12km from Surfers Paradise, on the north-west outskirts of Nerang. Here you can explore dry rainforest and open eucalypt forests on a scenic bushwalk, horse ride, or you can cycle along one of the designated mountain-bike tracks. There are various tracks and distances to choose from.

Maximising Your Property Valuation?

In today’s Bank or finance institution environment, obtaining the best valuation on either the property you are selling or buying can be a major positive in getting a positive and fast settlement. The deal breakers or deal makers, can be the Licensed Valuers! My experience is that they are all very professional and have access to some incredible data which they utilise to arrive at the valuation number. I’ve always wondered what’s the best strategy for optimised the valuation. When I meet valuers at a Vendors premises I usually advise them of any value added features of the house that might increase the valuation e.g. Ducted air or a 5kw Solar System that isn’t obvious, but is a strong value added feature. (cost saving as well) I certainly don’t try to ‘sell them’ because from experience, many people try this and being professionals, they don’t want people trying to obviously ‘pump up’ the valuation, and they don’t have the time. It can be even more beneficial if the Vendor is in attendance as they know their property far more intimately than me. Also, if the valuer has

any questions, who better to answer those questions than the vendor. I always check on the Valuers property specifications, size, rooms, split living, media room, office, garaging numbers, even buggy parks, because sometimes the valuers are provided with incorrect information and not taking into account all data can reduce the valuation. I like to provide any hard evidence that I have in my possession to the valuer and this seems to be helpful to them when they are writing up the valuation. Licensed Valuers have a difficult task if they are to achieve the dual objectives of a responsible valuation for the bank, without being so conservative that the buyers can’t get finance. I find that selecting the appropriate lender right up front and using a very skilled broker to do so, is key to achieving a positive and fast settlement. I hope that this information is of assistance to anyone purchasing a property.

6 TIPS TO SELL YOUR PROPERTY Most homeowners who are about to put their house on the market are concerned with two things: getting a good price and selling their property as quickly as possible. After all, time is money? The last thing you want is for your home to sit on the market for months, without any viable offers and that can happen unless your property is brilliantly presented and your price position is realistic to the market. I would like to offer six tips you can take to make selling your house easier and faster.

3. Forget about press and snail mail marketing While some non digital real estate agents still recommend sellers buy press advts and send mailers, we don’t! Because we are a digital agency, we choose to utilise a free alternative, social media marketing-promoting your listing on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. To increase how many impressions we achieve with your listing, we recommend a 3D video tour, floor plan, and professional photos when listing your property.

1. Stage your property Staging your property, is something that we offer every vendor who selects us to sell their property, to make your house aesthetically appealing to a prospective buyer, usually Staging pays off big-time. On average, staged homes sell 88% faster and return 20% higher prices than unstaged homes. If your property is vacant or has old furniture, there’s a cheaper alternative. Virtual staging. Virtual staging costs are minimal and provide the best ROI. Whether you opt for real or virtual staging, make sure you don’t overlook the foyer, because 80% of prospective buyers said they know if a home is right for them within seconds of stepping inside.

4. Brighten up the living space No buyer wants to walk into a dark, dreary house. Fortunately, there are several low-cost ways you can improve the lighting in your house. The first is install LED lights or globes in every room. Wall mirrors amplify light, so install a few throughout the home.

2. Boost roadside appeal Home buyers form their first impression when they pull up to your house. It’s no surprise, then, that curb appeal how your home looks from the outside-can boost your property’s sales appeal. For example, professional landscaping (which can include installing a stone walkway, planters, shrubs, and trees) costs an average of around $3,000. Or roll up your sleeves and tend to the front yard with your own two hands.

5. Promote energy-efficient upgrades Making your home more energy-efficient-say using solar panels if fitted. If your home’s energy bills are considerably low, you can provide prospective buyers with a copy of your electricity accounts. Most home buyers are willing to pay more for a home that has lower energy costs. That might explain why 94% of home buyers prefer Energy 5 Star-rated appliances. 6. Build appeal in advance We do everything we can to get people talking about your house before it hits the market. This includes promoting your home on all our free social media channels, our website etc. IN MANY CASES WE SELL YOUR PROPERTY BEFORE WE ARE ABLE TO BUILD OUR NORMAL SIGN.

SMOOTH SAILING

F O R G O L D C O A S T S U P E RYA C H T F U T U R E THE DECLARATION OF SOUTHPORT AS A CUSTOMS CLEARANCE PORT AND A $3 MILLION DREDGING PROGRAM HAVE PAVED THE WAY FOR A MASSIVE SURGE IN SUPERYACHTS VISITING THE GOLD COAST.

Superyacht Australia predicts that by 2021 South East Queensland will have the largest superyacht industry in Australia, worth $1.128 billion annually. Better still, the boom will create an estimated 7,947 jobs. With more than 57 kilometres of coastline, the smooth Broadwater and 260 kilometres of navigable waterways, the Gold Coast has often been referred to, perhaps somewhat optimistically, as the Venice of Australia. The truth is the Gold Coast has far better boating than the romantic Italian city could ever hope for and while Venice may be built on the water, the Coast is built on boats, with superyachts now joining the mix. The new Border Force clearance facilities will be at the Southport Yacht Club which can berth boats up to 74 metres in length. The club already has 10 berths for these floating palaces, just 15 minutes sailing from the Seaway entrance and plans on the drawing board for a further four berths to cope with the expected increase in demand. Club General Manager Brett James says the new Customs clearance point was invaluable and a huge win for the industry.

“The new port is revolutionising the marine sector and will mean foreign superyachts and other vessels will now be able to sail directly into the Gold Coast Seaway for Customs clearance,” he says. “Previously the closest Customs clearance was in Brisbane, which meant we often missed out on a lot of business.” “We are confident that our new facility will attract larger foreign vessels to the Gold Coast to enter Australia.” The $3 million dredging program will see 14 kilometres of the Broadwater and Coomera River deepened to allow the large vessels up river to undergo refits and maintenance work at the Gold Coast Marine Precinct, which is home to internationally known boat builders such as Riviera and Maritimo. It is anticipated that once the dredging is finished, the river will have a depth of 3.5 metres allowing superyachts to navigate up to the marine precinct. Gold Coast Mayor Tom Tate says the city was investing in the necessary infrastructure to meet the predicted growth. “The City of Gold Coast is actively supporting the local marine sector to best capture economic growth opportunities and position the city

as the default superyacht location in Australia,” he says. “With a new Customs clearance port in Southport and a dredging plan that will deepen the Coomera River, we will be able to attract even more international superyachts and other vessels to our beautiful waterways.” “Investing in our marine industry will provide long-term economic benefits to the city and create future jobs, putting the Gold Coast way ahead.” There are more than 40,000 registered watercraft in the city, which boasts the highest mixed use of watercraft of any Queensland centre and boating is such a huge part of the Gold Coast that 250 hectares of land alongside the Coomera River to the city’s north was dedicated to the marine industry through a special Act of State Parliament. The Gold Coast Marine Precinct is the major marine industry area dedicated to manufacturing, servicing, repairs and refits of recreational and commercial vessels. The precinct area holds the heaviest concentration of boat builders and marine-based industries in Australia – about 80 per cent of all boats built in the country.

Improving a property’s valuation? What is your home worth? In today’s Bank or finance institution environment, obtaining the best valuation on either the property you are selling or buying can be a major positive in getting a positive and fast settlement. The deal breakers or deal makers can be the Licensed Valuers! My experience is that they are all very professional and have access to some incredible data which they utilise to arrive at a valuation number. I’ve always wondered what is the best strategy to optimised the valuation. When I meet valuers at a Vendors premises I usually advise them of any value added features of the house that might increase the valuation e.g. Ducted air or a 5kw Solar System that isn’t obvious, but is a strong value added feature. (cost saving as well) I certainly don’t try to ‘sell them’ because from experience, many people try this and being professionals, they don’t want people trying to obviously pump up the valuation and they don’t have the time.

on previous sales in the area indicates a higher price, then I will have a discussion based on facts with the valuer. I always check on the property specifications, size, rooms, split living, media room, office, garaging numbers, even buggy parks because sometimes the valuers are provided with incorrect information. I like to provide any hard evidence that I have in my possession to the valuer and this seems to be helpful to them when they are writing up the valuation. Licensed Valuers have a difficult task if they are to achieve the dual objectives of a responsible valuation for the bank, without being so conservative that the buyers can’t get finance. The Banks keep records of the success ratio based on the valuations and obviously if the buyer has good credit, the Banks and financial institutions want to provide the funding, not continuously miss business opportunities due to a low valuation.

If have been advised of any improvements carried out recently that add value, I offer information on those and answer any questions. It can be even more beneficial if the Vendor is in attendance as they know their property far more intimately than me. Also, if the valuer has any questions, who better to answer those question that the vendor.

I find that selecting the appropriate lender right up front and using a very skilled broker to do so, is key to achieving a positive and fast settlement.

On a couple of occasions I have challenged valuations. I say a couple of occasions because most valuations are researched and fair, but on a rare occasion where my research

CRAFT BEER MOVEMENT SWARMS THE COAST THE CRAFT BEER SCENE HAS EXPLODED ON THE GOLD COAST WITH INNOVATIVE BREWERIES CONTINUALLY POPPING UP ACROSS THE CITY.

Local business people and even world surfing champions are recognising the burgeoning craft beer market as a smart investment and they are reaping the rewards. While this trend towards home-grown breweries is sweeping the world, the Gold Coast is establishing a reputation as a leader in the sector, with local breweries and brewers picking up national and international awards. Here is your guide to craft breweries in and around the Gold Coast… BALTER BREWING 14 Traders Lane, Currumbin World champion surfers Mick Fanning and Joel Parkinson, along with pro surfers Bede Durbidge and Josh Kerr, are riding a wave of success after opening their own brewery. Balter Brewing’s first beer launched in March 2016 – Balter’s XPA, an Extra Pale Ale with a fruity palate that aims to punch your taste buds into the pleasure zone, joined by several other styles over the following months. First the beer, then the venue. The group’s upmarket industrial warehouse and tasting room with its wraparound bar and bespoke Frank and Mimi artwork took the Gold Coast by storm through social media.

BLACK HOPS BREWING 15 Gardenia Grove, Burleigh Heads It all started with an idea for an egg nog stout between three beer-loving mates and it resulted in the creation of Black Hops Brewing. The trio who founded the business, Dan Norris, Michael McGovern and Eddie Oldfield, documented their progress from that first home brew to the establishment of their Burleigh Heads brewery exhaustively through blogs, podcasts and social media. Now they have put it all together into a book, Operation Brewery, which is available online and in print and is an invaluable source of information for anyone with dreams of starting a brewery, and entrepreneurs in general. Opening the doors of the brewery in April 2016, tours and a tasting bar operate six days per week: Monday to Friday from 10am – 6pm and Saturday

from 12noon – 4pm. Black Hops beers are available at many venues across the coast including Ze Pickle, Cambus Wallace, Lester & Earl, Bine, Surfers Sandbar, House of Brews and The Glenelg Public House. Burleigh Brewing

BURLEIGH BREWING CO. 2 Ern Harley Drive, Burleigh Heads Burleigh Brewing began as a love story, when in 2002 Peta Fielding persuaded her American-born master-brewer husband Brennan to leave Hawaii and return to her homeland, with the vision of founding their own brewery in Burleigh Heads. Brennan has made beer in the US, Hawaii, Japan and Australia, consistently winning business and beer awards year after year, including wins at the World Beer Cup and the World Beer Championships. Burleigh Brewing is an ‘old but new’ brewery. While they use traditional methods of brewing (one of their beers, the Dunkelbier, is made from a 600-year old German Monastery Yeast, and brewed in strict accordance with the ‘German Purity Law’ of 1516), they’re in new territory using cutting edge science and equipment.

REVEALING INTERVIEW WITH

PAU L E V E R E S T A B O U T U N I T A N D H I S N E W C O M PA N I E S PA R A D E R A N D E V R S T


As a child, motorcycles were my OBSESSION & they still are. I remember my Dad taking my younger brother and I to watch our first supercross race in Brisbane. I recall hearing the pyrotechnics going off, the smell of burning petrol in the air and the bright, glowing laser show emanating from within the packed stadium. Chills were going up my spine like electricity. But as my Dad walked back towards us from the ticket booth I noticed his head was down as he trudged along. I'll never forget his words, - 'sorry we can't afford to buy tickets' we were completely shattered and in tears as we drove out of the packed car park. I think that day affected my Dad too - A year later he bought me a BRAND NEW gleaming Yamaha YZ80. It was the GREATEST day of my life! Art was my 2nd passion. I was captivated by the pro's bikes and clothing in the magazines, I would draw motocross designs all over my school books. One day around 2001 whilst deciding which new Fox t-shirt to buy - I thought to myself... 'If I fuse my love of motocross and art I think I can make a better brand than this' I set about creating the star/spark plug logo. The name Unit came to me one night while lying in bed. With savings of $600 I bought a cheap screen printing carousel. My parents loaned me the use of their garage in Benowa. After a few months I noticed Unit sales grew from 1 tee a week to 8 tees per day. That's when I realised I had created something with HUGE potential. TIME LINE: 2002 Invested $600 into a website & 5 designs 2003 Told my boss at my day job (designing MX

magazines): "I Quit" 2005 Every Aussie Moto/bmx kid in Australia is wearing Unit and many tattooing the logo on themselves. 2006 Very Large Australian Retailers such as City Beach buy Unit Products by the PALLET. 2007 Phone is ringing off the hook with orders. Unit overtakes Fox in sales (in Australia) by double. 2008 Unit shipping out hundreds of items per day. Unit athletes winning world stage events. 2009 Wins Gold Coast Entrepreneur of the Year (Employing 60+ Staff) 2010 I almost die - Revived in Hospital after going too hard at Unit Christmas Party. 2011 Wins the Australian Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award (N) 2012 Opens California office as we notice Unit starts to become 'over-saturated' in Australia. 'Size is the Enemy of Cool' (Industry Proverb) 2013 Australia's worst recession since 1930 hits extremely hard just as we are expanding into USA & Europe. Billabong and Quicksilver nearly collapse. 2014 Fallout is too severe - Unit is sold off to a foreign family living on the Gold Coast. I walk away completely to start a new chapter with not much more than the shirt on my back. 2015 Launch www.EVRST.com.au a custom apparel company that helps young brands become successful. Because I've made every mistake I figured I'm qualified! 2017 Launch www.Parader.co a new brand for a totally new generation! Now growing Five times faster than Unit did What I've learned: 1) Be very careful who you trust. 2) When one door closes in life, KICK-IN another. 3) Remember those who stayed by your side. 4) Life is over very fast, so F@#king Go For It!
