A licensed Real Estate Agent with extensive and varied experience in all aspects of real estate in a career of 30 years plus.
Wendy has 6 children all now grown, four in the workforce, two still at university. She has managed to combine her love of real estate and dedication to her family successfully over many years. She has travelled extensively, attended many real estate conferences overseas and enjoys very much her interaction with both sellers and buyers of real estate.
When we went to sell our place we originally went with one of the big players. We paid a high price for staging marketing and even a video. A month later no offers or sale. We we kept going another 2 weeks with stagings and opens as they were still optimistic. A few months later and after trying off market for awhile we tried Ross Hunt. We chose them as they are also our Body Corporate Agents. Wendy really listened to our concerns and went out of her way to make the opens convenient even as far as looking after the dog one day. We did not want to pay any huge upfront costs again and didn’t have to with the Agency taking charge of the marketing. She had more interested buyers than any of the other agents and kept us informed at every step. She really understands the down sizer market in this suburb and could connect our property with their needs. Working in the property industry it was a big lesson to me that a well known name and flashy office is not always the best company or agent to go with. Thanks Wendy - Emma Jude

Ming Chen is originally from the Fugiang Province of China, made Australia her home around 12 years ago. She immediately built a huge network of friends and business associates. She has tertiary qualifications in Applied Chemistry Honours (R.M.I.T.); has had extensive experience in running her own business and speaks fluent Mandarin.
Her business acumen and experience in the property industry make her a valuable member of our team. Her motto is ‘Focus on a good outcome for all’.
We appointed a big profile agent to sell our property in Vermont South who not only failed to sell it but left us with a huge advertising expense. Ming Chen took over the marketing at Ross-Hunt and sold the property not only for the price we were expecting but with a settlement that suited us. She would have to be one of the best negotiators in town and we have recommended her to many of our friends. - Lyn A
