Personal Assistant To Julian Augustini (Brighton)
Professional, empathetic and endlessly energetic, Romana Preston is a real estate professional of rare substance and integrity. One half of Bayside’s longest-lived real estate team, Romana has been working with Hodges Director, Julian Augustini, since the mid-2000s, adding her very cool, calm and collected style to his value-focused goal-driven service.
With years of experience ensuring that her clients have a trouble-free and rewarding experience, Romana’s time-honoured belief is that if the small details are right, the big details will follow. From approving copy, to fine-tuning inspection times, to meticulously following-up potential buyers, Romana’s attention to detail builds the trust of her vendors. With Romana in charge, vendors rest assured that finer details are taken care of, so that big rewards can follow.
But beyond the business of the sale, Romana knows that it’s the people that matter. Always keen to learn, grow and develop new skills, she says her role shows her something new everyday, as she works closely with sellers and buyers making some of the biggest decisions of their lives. As such, Romana says she’s found that real estate involves a little bit of psychology and a lot of empathy.
It’s no surprise then, that Romana is a former science student whose meticulous nature informs her intuitive approach. It’s an approach that is particularly appropriate to the Brighton marketplace. Having bought her first home here at an early age, Romana counts herself as more than just a Bayside real estate professional…she’s a true Baysider!
