Hi Lisa , 
Just wanted to send you an email to say thank you very much for your help in selling our home. We can’t thank you enough for everything you did to make the process so easy. Melissa and I had met with many real estate agents while deciding whether to sell or not. Some of them made us feel uneasy or they were pushy , or cocky but after our first meeting with you we felt that you were on the same page as us , we felt comfortable because you were very approachable and open to our thoughts. 
Your knowledge of the market and the area was reflected perfectly with how fast you sold our home , and we were very grateful to your self and to swan valley realty for the professionalism but also for not feeling like another real estate robot. We honestly couldn’t have imagined a more simple process from our first meeting to our last . 
Thank you again for your great work.
We will be definitely spreading your good name to everyone we know.
Aaron and Melissa Bandy

During the decade leading up to 2011, Ellenbrook had the largest population growth of anywhere in WA.

In 1992 an area was rezoned from rural to urban deferred to allow for residential development and in 1994 the first bulldozers moved in to create at the time the largest new town project in Australia. 20 years on Ellenbrook has nearly 30,000 residents in about 8000 completed homes.

The villages;
1995 -Woodlake Village estate launched
1997 – The Bridges launched
1999 – Coolamon launched
2000 – Morgan Fields launched
2003 – Charlotte’s Vineyard launched
2006 – Malvern Springs launched
2011 – Lexia launched
2013 – Annie’s Landing launched

The original objectives for the area were to provide affordable housing, a harmonious social environment and ready or ‘walk-able’ access to community facilities. Thus villages were designed with the intention of trying to return to traditional neighborhood design principles. Although this has been successful with Ellenbrook winning 30 industry awards, there is some current criticism that more rapid transit services are required in order for it to remain sustainable. Developers are currently looking into ways of partnering Government with the private sector to make rapid transport to work centers more likely.

Congratulations to Aveley Primary School for being one of six entrants to win a place in The State Final of Wakakirri – Australia’s largest performing arts event for primary schools.

The schools performance of The Very Hungry Caterpillar won the Wakakirri Best Comedy Story Award and a music award.

48 students practiced for two months every Tuesday after school for 2 hours. All their hard work paid off and teacher Chris Spencer says there has been a huge interest in performing at the school and that the kids that preformed this year will have a better idea next year and can help others so it creates a momentum.

I have written previously about how Ellenbrook is the most awarded new town in Australia. This was due to a collaborative approach between town planners, builders, architects and developers from Ellenbrook’s beginning and continues today. In my position as a Real Estate Sales Representative in the area I see evidence of this approach on a daily basis. Beautiful street scapes and well designed gorgeous houses. My new listing at 7 Woodlake Blvd is another testament to Ellenbrooks appeal. 

Elevated, lush retained gardens frame the delightfully appealing street view of this home. Inside a light airy spacious feel is created by vaulted ceilings and ample windows encasing the west side of the house. This lovely generously sized three bedroom two bathroom home is on the market for $490,000. 

Feel free to call me on 0438 080 921 for further information

Who wants to age gracefully? Not a bunch of Ellenbrook residents who have formed a group called Classy Tarts. The group consists of women over 50 who want to inject a bit of fun and friendship into their lives. They are part of the Red Hat Society that was established in 1998 in the United States and the group’s philosophy is based on a Jenny Joseph’s poem – the opening lines of which read, “When I am an old woman I shall wear purple with a red hat that doesn’t go and doesn’t suit me”.

Of course when the group meet for their outings they attend in purple outfits and red hats. Sheryl Olsen who has lived in Ellenbrook for ten years said in that time she hardly made any friends. Now though the group has been a great network for her to meet people. 

Sounds like wonderful fun! For more details about Ellenbrook Classy Tarts, call Ms Olsen on 9297 1050
