Glenn Bool believes that the sale of a property is more than a transaction; he considers every sale to be the beginning of a long-term relationship.
Glenn prides himself on hard work and dedication. His charming nature and loyal personality make him very approachable and easy to get along with.
When Glenn and his partner, Julie, aren’t watching the kids play rugby or netball, you’ll find the coffee-lover appreciating a cup of the finest along bustling Oxford Street.
“The lifestyle that comes with being a Bulimba local is the reason I never want to leave,” says Glenn.
What time does your day usually start?
I am in the 5am club – up bright and early!
Talk us through a typical weekday.
[I] exercise first thing in the morning. If I’m not going to the gym or for a ride, I’ll take Gizzy (my dog) for a walk down Oxford Street and stop for a chat with locals. Then it’s back home for breakfast and to check emails before heading into the office or directly to appointments.
You work and live in Bulimba; what are some of your favourite spots in the suburb?
It’s great living and working in the area. Bulimba has a tight-knit village atmosphere that is full of riverside charm. [I love] being able to go out for a casual dinner and then to the movies – the Balmoral cinemas are a local gem! The array of good coffee shops, bookstores and parks is the reason I call Bulimba home.
On weekends, where will we find you?
On Saturdays, it’s work, work, work. On Saturday evenings, it’s great to catch up with friends and unwind over a drink, or see a movie. Sundays are a bit like therapy for me. They usually involve a nice bike ride with a close group of friends, then perhaps lunch in the area. A drive to the coast is also nice.
How do you juggle your personal life with a high-profile job in a booming area like Bulimba?
It’s not hard when you love what you do. It’s a pleasure to live and work in a village like Bulimba. If I’m out for a coffee, dinner or a walk, it’s great bumping into clients and people I’ve met at open homes and auctions. It is also important to look after yourself, stay fit and have some downtime to recharge – it helps keep you fresh and energised!
What are three tips for getting your home to selling point?
1. Focus on your street appeal – that very first impression is important.
2. If necessary, do some simple finishing touches to the gardens, such as removing weeds and mulching garden beds. It is also a good idea to go through the home and declutter as much as possible.
3. Consider a consultation from a property stylist. A stylist can completely furnish an empty home, or work with your existing furniture to add some stylish touches.
