Cory Hutchings - Shelley is supported by partner Cory who brings invaluable property knowledge and experience. A licensed salesperson for 6 years and having built multiple new houses himself, many of which he project managed, Cory is a wealth of knowledge on what kind of dwelling would be best suited to a site and what type of renovations would ensure adding the most value for the budget.

Lochie Hutchings - Shelley’s number one supporter is son Lochie. Shelley works hard but prioritises family time and enjoys lots of down time with Lochie. For the most part, Lochie likes what his Mum does for a job, but wasn’t so pleased when she did such a good job selling his best friend’s house… A fantastic result for the vendors meant a great sale and the ability to move out of town, but Lochie wasn’t so pleased “I like your work and all of your job, Mum… but why did you have to sell my friend’s house?”

“Anyway whatever happens tomorrow I want to thank you for everything you have done for us. God, I can’t imagine ever doing your job.  You have been such a pleasure to deal with through both the purchase of Russell St and the sale of this. You’ve been amazing and keeping the stress levels low (even though it might not look like that) and this time tomorrow we will be so excited to move into that house.  Megan said it still doesn’t feel real that we are going to live there.  Not a moment have we had any regrets about trusting you through all this.  Thanks.”
