Long-time local real estate agent Michael O’Neill is cutting loose! After 15 year selling homes in the Northern Illawarra, Michael and wife Linda have broken free and opened Thirroul’s newest real estate agency, Ozway.
Michael and Linda have been Thirroul residents since 1985, so they are almost locals!
Linda spent 25 years working for Qantas, and decided now is the time to go with her strengths, and team up with Michael in a new business venture.
“Linda is a real artist,” says Michael. “She is a practical, creative person with an eye for styling. We are both excited to be able to work together as a husband and wife team.
“We have been trading as Ozway for a month or so and already have listings filtering through,” says Michael. “Linda is a talented stylist, so we offer that service, as well as garden maintenance and presentation, all under our simple commission structure. The team at Ozway provide the administrative support, so we can focus on selling homes!”
“Our aim is to keep everyone happy,” he says. “A good price for vendors, great homes for buyers and quality customer service.”
Michael says they’re part of a new breed of estate agencies that don’t have a shopfront.
“We have an office in Thirroul’s Bath Street, and that’s all we need,” he says. “All of our marketing is done on line, with a little bit of help from Beaches Hotel, which has also been supportive of the new venture and is showing our ads on their screens.”
Michael says after all the years working in local real estate, he’s sold untold millions of dollars worth of local property, and is excited at the opportunity to be working alongside his beautiful wife, helping other people make their home in the Northern Illawarra.
