The Unexpected Dream Job

Kathleen Luck's introduction to real estate may not have been planned but it has certainly paid off. Working in hospitality during her early 20s, Luck realised that she wanted to start her career there and then.

Throwing caution to the wind, Luck quit her job, saw a job advertisement for real estate and gave it a shot.

"I thought 'ah yeah, I'll give it a go', and two weeks later I was working at Harcourts," she says. "I started as admin and went into sales about a month later." After two years, Luck made up her mind: real estate was her calling, and she was in it for the long haul.

Despite jumping in blind with no solid career goals, Luck has made the most of her real estate opportunities and created a lifestyle she's very content with. With a stable income and a wonderful local community, she is very happy with the decision she made.
