Here at Small City Big Personality we were very excited to join forces with Clyde Property this June to bring you our great new easy to use Property Section. In celebration we have been getting to know some of our new colleagues and introducing them to you.
Rachael Sinclair has been working with Clyde for sometime now but this year she completed her studies and started working for them full time. When she was a tot she dreamed of working at the pick n' mix counter at Woolworths but instead she helps people find their dream house. We find out all about in this weeks "Workdays and Weekends".
What does a typical day at work look like for you?
Every day is different but I usually get into the office for 9am, make a green tea and check the diary for the day. Some days I will be out on viewings all day and other days, I will be in the office. I enjoy going out and meeting potential buyers as it’s nice to speak to people face to face and get to know more about their background. If I’m in the office it’s a day of answering the phone, greeting people when they come into the office and dealing with enquiries.
What signals the start of your weekend / days off?
Chinese takeaway and relaxing in front of the television or going to the
cinema with my Fiancé Scott. With starting my full-time role with Clyde Property soon which will be Monday to Friday, the start of my weekends will start with a large gin!
What might people be surprised to know about you?
This won’t be a surprise to some but I prefer the winter months to summer. I like being cosy in front of the fire with my pyjamas on, hot chocolate in hand and having my dog Murphy lying beside me. Also, when I was little, I dreamed of working at the pic n' mix in Woolworths.
Top of your bucket list?
The top of my bucket list was to see the big Christmas tree at the Rockefeller Center in New York as I’m a big home alone fan. I managed to see it in November 2015 where I got engaged to my other half Scott. I would love to go to San Francisco and see the Golden Gate Bridge.
Worst job you’ve ever had?
Waitress. No more needs to be said! The free food at the end of the night was a bonus though.
Who or what inspires you?
My Mum and Dad are inspirational. I have two older sisters and my parents worked hard to make sure we never wanted for anything. I’m so grateful to have had a great childhood and amazing memories.
Tell us about the weekend you’d love to live again?
It’s not just a weekend but the month of December 2015. I got engaged and I became an auntie for the first time to my beautiful niece, April.
What’s the best part about your job?
Trying to find someone their dream home!
What’s in the perfect day off breakfast?
Eggs Benedict is my all-time favourite breakfast. A toasted muffin with crispy bacon, a lovely poached egg and some hollandaise sauce = perfection.
Complete this sentence; The best things in life are…
Spending time with friends and family and having fun. Life is about making memories.
