Lorna has spent over 45 years pioneering the role of women in property, building credibility and experience in a male dominated industry. She’s the first to admit it hasn’t been easy, but recognises the industry as one that brings an equal ROI (Return on Investment) for those willing to dive in, regardless of whether they are a man or woman. This is a lesson learnt early on, when Lorna’s humble property journey began with the purchase of a block of land for a whopping $4,000.00 in 1975. She was just 18 years old. Decades later, she is at the forefront of property development in the lucrative Sunshine Coast region.
Vast experience in the industry has fuelled Lorna’s passion to help other aspiring women develop their own financial knowledge and abundance. She has been committed to this for the past 7 years in the WOW Property Women group, a community devoted to women eager to create their own wealth using a variety of portfolio-building property techniques… and they’re techniques that work; Lorna is the living proof of a variety of them.
With a love for property and a background in Architectural and Interior Design, she is currently working on her biggest project to date: the ‘Lowanna Beach Resort’ with a $95million GRV consisting of 112 residential apartments and 5 commercial spaces. It has been a watershed project: “This is where the magic all came together, and I really began to soar like an eagle.” As a result of this definitive achievement, she is now ready to share her incredible insights and extensive experience to inspire and encourage others to aim for the sky in their own personal goals, to soar beyond the limits of what they thought was possible.
Lorna’s Property Eagles Program is not a quick fix, but about making lasting change which can future proof women’s financial security. She says, “I am obsessed with making a difference and helping women, but I’m also about remaining authentic and real. I pride myself on leading by example with encouragement, inspiration and through sharing my own personal experience and wisdom with others. For me, Property Eagles is so very exciting because I’m bringing in other incredibly successful experts whose journey I have watched and supported wholeheartedly: and we have grown to become great friends. We have helped each other soar, and now we’re ready to build on that community and share our knowledge with others.”
