- Two Australian mums are ‘shaking up’ the Victorian real estate scene this year
- The women opened their own agency which has a focus on women’s needs
- They say women are making most of the decisions these days and cater for that
Two mums have shaken up the real estate industry selling 17 homes in their first month of business – including one for more than $4million which sold in just one week.
Jenny Wegner and Julie Bible from the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria describe themselves as ‘two women kicking butt’ since launching their business Bayview Property.
They were sick of the male-dominated real estate industry’s focus on ‘the husband’ and ‘man of the house’.

The women say it is important to get the location of the property right – because everything else can be changed
Speaking to Daily Mail Australia they revealed ‘women are the ones making these decisions’.
‘It’s the women choosing the properties. It’s the women with the cheque books.’
Jenny has 11 years experience in real estate while Julie is an interior designer trying her hand at selling houses.
And so far there have been ‘happy dances every day’ – something Jenny said she expected following the Covid lock downs.
‘People want to continue working from home, which means they can live out here on the beautiful Mornington Peninsula,’ she said.
They also said to try to visualise your own things in the home – if you can imagine yourself living there it could be the home for you
WHAT ARE YOUR TOP TIPS TO BUYING A HOME?
1 – Try to imagine yourself living in the space
2 – Acknowledge small things – like shower fitting and big things like kitchens can be changed
3 – Sit in the car outside the property for an hour on a Friday night
4 – Properties go fast so book in to see it as soon as possible
5 – Make sure you have the money ready to go so you don’t lose to another bidder
6 – See as many houses as possible
