Kristy Beale Wagstaff

Buyer's Agent

LREA (Class 2)

Starting her personal journey in property at only 19 years old, Kristy has always understood the opportunity and benefits of investing in the property market.

Kristy’s interest in property turned into a passion in later years when she realised how she could utilise the equity in her home to start building a property portfolio with very minimal outlay.

“My biggest lesson learnt around property investing is not having the right team working for me to make the whole process smoother, more cost effective and more enjoyable. Doing it all on your own can become stressful, overwhelming, and actually cost you more money in the end”

She highly values honesty, trust, and integrity along with great communication and believes this is key to a successful and long lasting “client and agent” relationship.

Kristy’s straightforward, no-nonsense approach along with her positivity and enthusiasm is what clients like about working with her.

With a background in holistic wellness including running workshops on effective goal setting strategies in all areas of life, Kristy also spent several years in the Civil Infrastructure & Construction Industry which gave her a sound understanding about the processes, opportunities and what this can mean when it comes to selecting the right property within the right area.

She’s very passionate about helping people achieve their goals and is a great asset to the team at Aus Property Professionals.

Renee is Big4 Audit trained which has developed her strong interpersonal client skills and her passion for going above and beyond in helping clients achieve their strategic goals.

This drives her purpose to achieve budget focused renovations, purchasing primary residences within budgetary parameters, and a passion to achieve long term results for our clients.

Renee developed a passion for property after realising the key to prosperity is to work smarter, not harder. She realised that by investing in property, we are allowing our money to passively grow our wealth.

In 2018, Renee was awarded the Real Estate Institute of NSW Award for Excellence, in the category of operational support. This is a testament to her commitment and support to our clients. In 2019, she was a finalist for this same award.

Maryanne Tran

Administration Manager

Dip. FS, Adv. DFP

Maryanne understood from an early age that achieving financial freedom was more than just working hard – it also meant that she would need to make smart money choices. This mindset guided her on the path to purchasing her first property with her partner when she was just 21 years old and soon followed her appreciation of property.

As she continued to use property as an investment vehicle, and spending her spare time trying her hand at DIY renovations, she realised how daunting managing your own finances and the process of buying and selling property could seem. Maryanne realised it can be extremely cumbersome and overwhelming to everyday Australians.

Wanting to help others make smart money choices by simplifying the overload of information, Maryanne began what would later be a 12-year career in Financial Planning in both corporate and boutique firms. Maryanne’s enthusiasm for money management and commitment to her clients has allowed her to ensure they are well-supported throughout their entire journey. She enjoys taking the time educate her clients so that they can feel confident and empowered right through to unpacking their financial strategies and executing their plans to drive results.
Maryanne’s skills and experience in the finance sector prove extremely valuable to our clients at Aus Property Professionals as they navigate their way through property strategies and how to structure their finances.

Maryanne loves to spend time with her young family and volunteering for local animal welfare charities.
